EXONERATE CITY PHYSICIAN
Board of ilealth Makes Thorough In
vestigation of Charges.
Coroner's Jury Not Supported In lis Findings
New Evidence Brought In and Mis
takes In Evidence Corrected.
There was n full meeting of the
Board of Health yesteiday afler-
noon for'tbe parposo of making
an inquiry into the case of Dr.
Henry W. Howard, recently
charged by a Coroner's Jury with
necleot of duty in tin matter of
the death of Aue, a native woman.
Dr. Howard himself did the
questioning of tbo natives who
gave testimony at the inquest iu
question and Deputy Marshal
Cbilliugworth represented the
other side. Miss Kelby took
down tho evidence in a short baud.
AfbT tbo natives bad been tlior
oncblv quetioued by Dr Howard.
DepuytMarsbal Cbillingworth and
various members of tbe Board of
Health, including President Coop
er, in opju eersi in, the Bonrd
went into Executive session and
weiuhed the matter carefully.
When. all points hut Ix-en discuss
ed, the following exoneration of
Dr. Howard was pussjl, ttiero bo
inL not a cutrary vote:
"The U'liuiiinous opinion of the
Board of Health was that, aftir
carefully leviowing nil the evid
ence produced and nbtainnble iu
regard to tho treatment of Ane, u
native woman, it appenis that Dr.
Howard could not ha held oharge
ablu with iuteutio nl or unintent
iunal neglect on his p;rt; that
mere ijhb evioenuy nen an iljus
ticn done to Dr. Howard by the
coroner's jury which sat on the
case of Aue, through failure to
iHke a tiroad view ot tue dutirs
anil rospousibilitieB of tbo (Unpen
sary physician, and the board ful
ly exouernteB Dr. Howard from
l be oharge made by the coroner's
The main incident of tho inquiry
was the contradiction of tbe uative
witness and the evident confusion
of J?a, the husband of Aue who
stated that ho had not told every
thing at tho Coroner's inquest nor
at the Board of Health inquiry
because bo was afraid. Wny he
was afraid was not brought out
aud may, in the future, lead to
The written testimony of Dr.
Humphris went to show that L'a
told n delibeinte falsehood when
he said thit thmo was no one in
tho room upon his culling at the
Iioiisf. Dr. Humphris slated thai
there were not only about twenty
iiioii in tho room at the time hut
tlmt they wero all ditink. The
woiiian was profoundly unco
oiiuis. How lung, c.ould noi be
learned as the people were in no
condition to toll.
In tho mntlor of tho statement
that tho word "unconscious"
wan nted in the dispoiiBary
when P.i willed, Paaknuli, tho
uativo who prejmros tbe uiedi
ciues at the dupeneary, slated
that, although such ovidenco did
appear under bis name in tbo
Coroner's Inquest, hetaid nothing
of tbo kind Tho testimony of
Miss Morse, tho govornmeut nur
ee under Dr. Howard, backed up
this btatement. Sbe was in tho
room at the time l'a called aud
did not henr tho word "uuoon
stated that the verdiot of the jury
was based on Paakauln's state,
ment that Pa had told Dr. How

of Ane. i

tho doposition of L. D. Spencer
Attorney General Cooper moved
that the entire deposition be re

are evasive and frivolous.
After argument the court ruled
that the objections wero not such
as to ju-tify the deposition being
strickeu ont or refused, and ad
mitted the deposition in evidence
without, for the time being,
passing upon whether it sub
stantUtes the plaintiff's claim

missal of the notion or continuance
or tho introduction of further
evidence. Lxceptiou taken lo
