Q. lie says in there be heard some
conversations between some' ladies re
flecting upon the character of Dr.
Stunders. A. Yes, sir.
Q. Did you ask him who they
were? A. No, sir.
Q. Did you try to follow that up?
A. I did. I tried to find out what I
Q. Well, here is an ac'busation

information before you, don't you
think you ought to have (followed it
up and seen whether It was true or
untrue. A. I came down to try to
see the governor but could not see
Q. Have you asked him since the
date of the letter? A. I have not
asked him what he meant.
Q. Don't you believe that if you
had followed this up and investigated
this thoroughly that this investigation
that we are having today would not
have taken place? I. I do not know
how it would have prevented it.
Q. Well, suppose you had seen the
witnesses and found out that the ac
cusation was unfounded, that would
have been the end of it. A. You
think that was my business to find out
who the accusers are?
Willing to Tell.
Q. 'Well, you were the superintend
ent and it was your duty to find out
whether it- was true. A. Well, the
accusation was made by the governor.
You want me to tell you what I konw
about that? ' I am perfectly willing to

tore 'by Dr.\ 'Babco'ck or anybody else'.
fou1 let my sister's name stay out of
Is. Now, Mr. Chairman, my sis
er has nothing to do with tIs trans

hing to liim it is hearsay and not evi
oence. Now I wanlt my sister's name

Gov. Blease-You leave my sister's a
Lame ouit of this or I will put you a
