An article, tocrether with a notice of
incorporation of Tho North Platte Gen
erai Hospital Association, was published
in The Tribune on Docember 5, 1913.
In explanation thereof, I desire to say
that the Articles of Incorporation were
subscribed by D. T. Quigley, J. S.
Twinem and George B. Dont with tho
distinct understanding on tho part of
J. S. Twinem that said Articles of In
corporation should also bo signed by
Dr. Voorhoes Lucas, and that tho in
corporation was for tho purpose of
forming tho nucleus for a general hos
pital association, which nil of the phy
sicians of the city could join, soon after
wards Dr. Lucas and the undersigned
learned that one of tho incorporators
intended to exclude some of the physi
cians of the city, and therefore, Dr.
Lucas refused to sign the nrticlcs of,
incorporation nnd the undersigned re
fused to have anything furthor to do
with tho incorporation. Neither do I
intend to have any thing to do with tho
onorntion of anv hospital under the
present organization nnu munuKaincm..
Tho only objoct of Dr. Lucas and my
self was to join together tho medical
staff of this city in the support of ono
great general hospital. This object
having been defeated through the in
strumentality of ono man, I desiro the
public to understand that I havo noth
ing to do with tho above incorporation.
