Boston, April 6. In the" Tc'wksbiiry
Almshouse investigation the chairman nsked
to have the issue as to whether bodies had
been deliveicd to medical schools
as that will not be disputed
Governor Butler replied that he expected
to prove that bodies had been delivered
elsewhere, tome to be skinned, and the
skin taunid. lie propises to show that
nfter bodies had been buried they had been
taken up and sent away, mid said he would
gc into the graveynrd at Tc.vksbury and
produce some of the alleged " remains."
This investigation was to go on to prove
the testimony whi:h had been given, to be
absolutely lnlse. The books, which hud
been sent to him as record" of the almshouse,
were nut complete; they were copies
of the original books. He wanted the
bitter, embracing those loeoiding the death
i ml sale of dead bodies.
The eliaiiuiaii nid it was claimed that
no dead Indies were .-old hence, there were
no rci'oid in. tie ptod cl. lint the Governor
said lie wnu.it prove the contrary.
Thomas Hall, who worked at the
from 1871 to 1877, testified that he
had all the dead to bury while ho was
there. He took them from the dead house
under orders of Thomas J. Marsh, jr., and
Captain Manning; used to come and get
the dead bodies, canying them away in two
zinc air-tight trunks. During the winters
ho was there the bodies averaged
to seventy-five; they wero not sent in hot
weather; no pickling was done while he
was theie. The bodies recoived from the
.Stale Prison for burial at the almshouse
were, with one exception, sent away for
dissection. When witness loft he was pnid
tslOO for his winter's work, and for handling
bodies. He thought Tom Marsh used
to collect money from Harvard College.
Witness acknowledged that he had been
doing-something wrong. Tho hearing was
adjoiirnqd to Monday.
Whisky Exportation to C'umidn. '
Ottawa, April 5. The Canadian Ministry
has decided adversely to any alteratidn
of the existing regulations which prohibit
the .importation of whisky from
the United States id paokages of
less than 100 imperial gallons. The
Dominion distillers have entered a protest
against any change of the law, but tho
representative of the United States whisky
men, after consultation with tho Dominion
distillers, has solicited a modified change,
which practically give's to these whiskies
an additional bonding period of three years,
and will, to the fullest extent, relieve tho
American whisky market in the
present depressed condition. The
United States Government has signified
to tho authorities hero that it has
no objection to any modification that
may bo made in tho Canadian laws affecting
tho exportation of whiskies from tho
United States, and as tho Canadian
have joined with Secretary Pratt, of
the American Distillers' Association, in
Booking this limited modification, it is
thought thero will bo no difficulty in immediately
scouring such a cliango at the
bunds of tho Cnnndiun Ministry.
