a plain fnct.
Tho sole question In issue Is raiser,
by tin) resumption of operations nt tho
crusher by your department. Am the
o;t rations of the crusher nnd quarry
d such n nature ns tn ho deleterious to
the health nnd welfare of tho patients
nt tho Insane Asjlum?
As long ns tlio crusher and quarry
nre in operation tills question is In
serious Issue. Tho Hoard feel that tho
raro of tho Inmates of tho Asylum Is a
public trust of u delicate nature, re
quiring constant vigilance and un
urunl care, nnd one In which tho pub
lic and the government nre deeply In
(crested nnd concerned through natural
feelings t. sympathy und charity to
ward tho unfortunate condition of tho
Inmates of this Institution.
Tho Hoard therefore nro convinced
Hut nnjthlng which is deleterious to
their welfare should receive ImmedlnlR
The crusher, as you nro nwmc. Is
situated but about no yards from tin
wards on the mnukn side ot tho Asy
The nolso fiom It In operation Is
therefoie constant and loud. The sumn
Is true only mine so of the bl.iste
which In this kind of work nro usually
very heavy. I'ljlng stones occasion
ally of large size fnll In considerable
numbers within the asylum walls. Tho
concussion from tho blasts has broken
tho windows In wnrd No. 3 and sn
shaken tho foundation of the snmn
building that constant care has to b
exercised to keep tho building, doors,
and upp.iiatus In condition nnd repair,
Tho roofs of tho buildings have suffer-
fd and In rcbruary Inst it largn stuno
went through tho roof of Ward C.
When n blast Is about to bo fired n
whistle Is blown nt tho quarry nnd
the Inmates of the Asjlum uro Inline-
dlatelj hurried away to another part
of the grounds to n place of less dancer.
The Ilcmid lire of the uuanlninui
opinion that the nolso of tho crusher
Is plainly detrimental to tho health mil)
welfare of tho Inmates of tho Asjlum
In some cases making cure Impossible.
To the nveiago citizen continuous
nud uninterrupted nolso of this hurt Is
'n Itself a source of nniinyuncn and Ir
rltiitlon; to the Inmates of the Asylum
It Is apparently much moro so.
It Is undoubtedly a causa of oxagger
nllon of symptoms nliendv existing In
(.'.any, If not nil of tho cases.
I Tho Hoard nre nlso of tho unanimous
opinion that the noli-u nnd concussion
of tho blasts nro even morn harmful
than the nnlsn of tho crusher for tho
reason Just stated. Also that tho hur
rled moving of tho patients about tlm
gioiind to diminish clanger from full
Ing stones excites nnd Irritates them
from n medical standpoint nnd in
plainly uppears from mcdlrnl' opinion
herewith enclosed tho continuation of
oieratlons nt tho rock crusher nnd of
blasting should not continue.
The Hoard feels that such n discern
Mnunnoo Is absolutely necessary, and
therefoie ngaln so lequestb.
