the committee with the fact js

Committee to Report Wednesday. ^
Columbia Record, 22nd. v
Report of the legislative committee A
conducting the inquiry into the oper- c
ation of the State Hospital for the i
Insane and the personal and profes- r
sional Charges against Dr. Eleanora B. r
Saunders, a woman, assistant physi- s
cian, which extended over a period of i v
f two weeks, will probably be made to J j
Jie general assembly Vednesdav. ac-! t
fording to authoritative information. I
Members of the committee are now e
working on their report. The full reIport
of the testimony taken at the r
proceedings will be furnished by the S e
committee Monday by the stenograph- : a
er, Augustus Deal. | g
P (What will be the nature of their a
report, and what recommendations regarding
the operation of the hospital 3
will be made is not known. No mem- B
ber of the committee will discuss the
It is generally expected that Dr. ^
Saunders will be completely exoner- t
ated of the vague charges against her.! Her
strong presentation of her case 1
\n her address to the committee on j
Thursday, and her grilling cross-ex- j
animation of the various witnesses j l
which appeared against her developed 1
that the grievances her colleagues j
held against her were principally the
result of what has been spoken of as
'puerile" imagination. ?
Tie investigations of the committee ! c
were directed principally to the oper- j r
ation of that part of the asylum plant n
1 which is located within the city of I
Columbia. Only incidental questions p
regarding that part at State Park, o
near Columbia, were asked bv the
committee. Replies to these queries c
indicated that the witnesses, practi- ^
cally unanimously, regarded the site
there as ideal for this proposed pur- .
- - - 111
pose, and that further development j.
was advisable. , I r
As a whole, though, the inquiry 10
dealt with the apparently successful j n
^-.effort cf Dr. Saunders to clear herjt
'character and reputation" of the i p
charges which had been preferred j r
against her. j s
Principal result of the investigation j s
so far has been to bring to Dr. Saun- i t;
ders, a number of flattering offers of; r
positions in large hospitals of the' 0
North, both public institutions and | g
ouue insane asyiums. ur. Saunders j a
i is noi considering resigning, stated j
Dr. J. W. Babcock. superintendent of j
the hospital, who has defended her i c
^ throughout tee investigation. j ^
The testimony of the numerous wito
nesses appearing before the committee .
