In view of thestatcments madeabout Mr.
Emiold The Tiroes desired to obtain his side
of the. case and-lor that purpose applica
tion was made1 yesterday to Frldent
Charles "Graf f, or tlicboard of lirectors.
Mr, Graft, said that he thought that too
much publicity had already been given to
the affair, and ne'did not think that It
would be prgpej tobave Mr. Emiold speak
prior to his examination by the board.
There would- be'riotibjection after the in
vestigation tq.have printed what il-feiise he
EP.MOLD'S ABSOLUTE DENIAL.
It was learned-how ever .that Mr. Eimold
bad already appeared before FreMdent
Graff and another member of 'he buflril of
dlrectors-and he was asked what he had to
say about the allegations. Mr. Ermold is
reported as detiying in toto any 111 treatment
or crueltyto the children.
The particular case which. had bean
printed at the" time" Mr. Ermold was heard
from, was. the-Joe Turner complaint from
hi? mother In Georgetown. Mr. Ermold,
on" the contrary, said that little Joe was
quite a favorite at the institution and was
so with himself. As with all the chil
dren who" misbehave at times the little
fellow was reproved once about six weeks
ago. Mr. Ermuld admitted that he
touched him but very lightly with his
baud and in such way that he could not
possibly have been hurt. Corporal pun
Uhmenris prohibited' by the rules of the
Institution, and. Mr. Ermold contends
that he has. obeyed the rule.
It was learned also that Mrs. Turner
took further steps In having the case
cleared up yesterday by calling on Mr.
Wilou, agent of the humane society. She
Informed bim tliatJier boy had been
cruelly lieatcn at the asylum. She repre
sented that the child had a number of
bruises upon his person, and the agent
directed her to tiring fine child to him that
,bc might see the bruises.
Mrs. Turner again called on Sunday,
brlngltig the boy with her. The society
agent discovered two small bruises Jnst
above the hips. The boy's mother. It is
understood, admitted that there nrrc no
witnesses to the alleged whipping, and
Mr. Wilson told her he did not believe It
was a case that could be established In
court; that the bruises were such as-could
have been made In play. The mother said,
however, that she-l'lleved the child was
hurt internally, as It pained him to stoop
ocr. She was then directed to consult a
ptijsielan and acquaint the agent with the
result of the examination, which she
promised to do.
It Is staled. -tliatiMrs. Turner did not
afterwards sec the agent; he therefore sup
posed the matter had been dropped arid
paid It np -further attention.
DIVISION OF SENTIMENT.
Mr. Wilson was of course willing to take
up the case, mtt" owing Jo the foregoing
circumstances. It is claimed, there was
no official investigation made byjiim.
There seems to be a, pronounced division
of sentiment over-tttc affair, and this the
board of directors will probably have to
meet Monday evenlug.
Ex Secretary Spriugegutb stated yester
day in The Times that there were other
cases In which thenllegatlonsof cruelty could
be sustained. Among.these be mentioned
Mrs. Ida Gate wood, who complained of ill
treatment of her children. Mrs. Gatewood
lived at 342 Pennsylvania avenue until
lately, but lias moved and it was not known
where she had gone.' -"Mr. Spriagsguta also
mentioned a Dr. Kratt, who was once prefll
dent ot the Institution. Dr. Kratt is now
In New "i'ork, but Mr.Sprlngsgutb said yes
terday that In all probability be "xould. re
turn here before the investigation was over.
He cited also, the rase al.Mrs. Kraemer, Dot
that lady Is now in New York and also
her son, whois stated to have been 111 treated
at the asylum. ,lM ...
xoung i-crry Morrman, however, warn
In tho city. He is now in the employment 1
ot Mr. nebnor. at No. 1508 Fourteenth
street northwest. Mr. Ilebnor said that it
was hardly the proper thing to have the
boy lnicniewed in view ofthe fact that the
Investigation was Intend edtocoerthc whole
case. He, however, had the loy calfeiC
Perry Hoffman wob aiked if he had cyct
been whipped or cruelly treated by Mr
Ermold, to which he replied that he had
been locked up one time.
DID OBJECTIONABLE THINGS.
He paid that he had been locked up be
cause he had talked about Mr. Ermold. He
further said that he had been locked up on
account of something he had done which was
objectionable. Hoffman said that be had
known of the superintendent to beat a boy
with u stick. Afterwards, however, he
said that it was only a little switch and
that he only touched him with it.
The grave charges which have been made
against Mr. Ermold relate to his character-
before he came to this coontrv. It was said
that tie left Mitznotlnthebestotpdorwlth"
the authorities and that there are lcttcrsJ
here to prove, those charges. A friend of Mr.
Ermold aId in his behalf joterday that
there was lio truth in these allegations. It
was true that Mr. Ermold came to this
country from Metz. Ono of his enemies
circulated the report that he left tliccouujry
in debt nnd had alio abandoned pis' family
there. On tho contrary Mr. Ermold has let
ters from the lieutenant of police of Metz,
stating that there was noindtctment against
him. Mr. Emiold nfter leaving Metz
settled up all bis affairs satisfactorily and
sent for his family, who are now with him
in this country. '
The Kratt matter has nothing tido with
the present case. There was a difference of
opinion between Dr. Kratt and the board.
of directors and this matter wis finally
settled. The amount involved was about
$9,000. Mr. Kratt's side of this story can
not be ascertained until be comes to Wash
ington. It is, however, not likely that this
case will enter afr all into the merits of
At present the board wlllnot express itself
pending the investigation further than to
say that the examination into all the
charges will ba complete.

the Storm," on Kxhtnltlon nt Saks'.
This famous painting from the brush
ot the Polish artUt, Tbadeus Poplel, has
been purchased by Mr. Andrew Saks, of
the firm ot Saks and Company, and he
has arranged to pxhlblt it. at their store.
It has been given wall space at the Market
Space front of the second floor, where,
in a perfect light, everybody interested In
a triumph of art may view it freely. The
canvas is twelve tcet wide and seven feet
high, and according to the catalogue of
the art gallery at the World's Fair, where
the picture was exhibited. It is worth
So much of the higher order of art seeks
expression la imaginative scenes and ideal
conceptions which require an artist mind
to grasp that the commonplace scene
Poplel has chosen for his subject appeals
most strongly to the appreciation ot every
Sody. During the Chicago Fair there was no
picture in all that vast collection that
attracted the attention as did "After
the Storm." Hundreds and thousands of
people were touched by Us truthfulness
to nature, and back they went again and
again to stand before this wordless story.
The artist Is a Folander, so knowledge
of the place and" people, the conditions
under which the peasantry live, have
guided this hand of genius.
Tlie scene represents a peasant form a
barren, Etubbij looking field that looks as
if it would have to be coaxed to yield any
return to the tiller. But care and hard
work had grown a tolerabljuliealthy crop
of rye, almost ripe and ready for the sickle
But the angry, hurrying wind ami the de
stroying deluge of rain and hall descended
and laid the grain level with the gronnd.
What must have been the feelings of those
poor peasants, when the messenger of rnin
lad passed away? Here is where Popiel
Jlcks np the story. With master strokes he
r,lves to the face of the man a look of
utter dlsconsolatlon: He looks atnothing
heeds nothing but the wreck before him.
Tho wife. Just behind her husband, is play
ing her part so true to nature. Hers Is a
look of sympathy born ot love and duty.
She knows what the loss means. But she
recalls the pride with which her lord and
master bas watched the green grow la to the
golden tinge of ripeness. His disappoint
ment Is her greatest sorrow. "Grandpa"
and tho two children of the family are
Handing apart from the others, their coun
tenances mirroring, their feelings.
Bat- thanks to the enterprise of Saks &
Co.. you can view -this greatest painting
of the modern schooL. It will be on free
exhibition during the business hours of the
store, beginning to-morrow, morning:
