examined by the Congressional investi

Sergeant Leechwar thought the disci

lie himself had not attempted to enforce
it to the letter.
Sergeant Gannon found fault with the
police. He said they were too harsh in
their treatment of the men.
With the exception of these two wit
nesses and one or two others, all the tes
timony of the day was favorable to the
present management of the Home, and to
the effect tint there is no just cause for
complaint. The sergeants say they have
orders from General Patrick to treat the
men kindly, and that whisky is the caus;
of most of the trouble.
