ASYLUM, INe 0 STIG
A Cowarduly Plot and Breach of Trust.
Now that the light has been turned
on and we all know what the real trou
ble was in the state hospital of the
insane, two facts stand out clearly,
which are thorouahly discreditable to
the governor, the board of regents
and certain Fmale physicians In the hos
pital. One -fact is that the position
filled by Dr. Saunders was wanted for
somebody else by the 'politicians and
the other fact is that a lot of pure
jealousy had arisen as to Dr. Sauin
ders. Yet there was no ground for
ousting her on grounds of inefliciency
or as a misfit in any way. Rather the
case was that she was so very efficient
and well beloved by patients and sub
ordinates, that it was a very diflicult
matter to manage her dismissal.
liat go she must, the governor and
regents decided. So these men resort
ed to as contemptible a plot against
a young woman's good name and pro
t'ssilonal reiutationi as we ever re
mnmher to have heard of. Ina the now
famous star chamber meeting of the
regents and the governor, they under
took to browbeat the woman, deny her
any sort of fair proceedings and to
iave their own way regardless of do
cneiiy in ofliclal conduct or of com
mon care for so dellcate a thing as a
woimani's reputation. The plain truth
is that this entire episode reveals a
dastardly cowardly attack upon a wo
man by Insinuation and backstairs
conspiraicy on the part of men, who
now stand reveal ed1 in the public eye
as deliberate defamers of womanhood
for sel flsh private purposes in connec
tionl with a public institution not be
longing to them but to the people at
large. That. 1)r. aiunders was all the
while an exceptionally valuable otli
(er, just what a hospital for the in
sane deeply needs, only emphasizes
the miserable breach of trust shown
by every state olicer, from governor
down, who lent himself to this dark
scheme. It is surely a fortunate
thing for the patients in the hospital
andl for the state that the truth has
come out or the future would have
been an evil one for the afllicted peo
ple gathered in that great institution.
