THR following statement of the revolt
ing management of tbe Philadelphia
Almshouse under Phipps and the brutal
board of stalwart thieving directors is
given in a speech delivered b> Thomas
W. Barlow, council for the committee
of one hundred.
"Developmenta showing theftsof pub
•lie money, the speaker continued, "I
regard as the least important factor in
the case, and therefore I will consider
it first. The report for 1881 of the
Board of Guardiana of the Philadelphia
Almshouse has been published and cir- 1
culated since the report of tbe investiga- ;
tion committee of Councils. It is the
same which was so repeatedly called for
by the members of the committee fur
personal examination and was carefully
concealed.
A DECEPTIVE REPORT.
"On pages sixteen and seventeen of
the report a table is given, showing the
consumption and cost of maintaining
the four departments, to wit, hospital. 1
insane, children's asylutrfand out wards.
The total cost of maintsining each de
partment is given, as follows :
"Hospital, 1132,543,13; insane,
455,47; children's asylum, $14.C.*2 0C;
out wards, f 130.2G4.84. making a total of
$372 015.50. Then follows tbe average .
population during the year: Hospital,
G9O; insane, 638 ; children's asylum, 107;
out wards, 1,058 ; average population in
tbe entire Almshouse, 2,502.
"Tbe compiler of the report then
gravely deduces from the above figures
the average weekly cost of each patient J
in each department to be as follows:
Hospital, $1.93; insane, $1.52$ ; chil ,
dren's asylum, $1.39 ; out wards, $1.71 ; ;
average weekly cost, $1.64.
"A careful analysis of tbe above table
and a proper arithmetical computation j
thereof will show that tbe deductions !
are falae and deceptive in every ptrtiru
lar, the correct coat for the weekly
maintenance of each patient being as
follows ; Hospital, $3 f4 ; insane, #2 H6;
children's asylum, $2 63; out wards, ;
$2.17; average coat of each patient,
$2.86.
SQUALOR (NORN DERI NO DIStSSE.
"In introducing tbe causes which hare
in a greater or less degree affected the
health of the Almshouse inmates I posi
tively assert that the records show a rate
of death in 1881 larger than that of any
other institution of like character in this
country. At no time during the year
1881 were the inmates properly sup
plied with either bw>d, clothing, beding
or heat, and ibis may be added the
poorest means of preparing what sup
plies were obtained after plundering
officials and contractors devoured their
spoil. Seven hundred and sixty six
thousand six hundred and thirteen
pounds of different kinds were paid for
by the city, yet the food was poor and
insufficient. In some instances but
twenty per cent, of the amour.t contrac
ted and paid for was really furnished.
But the stealing in the straw contract
reveals a chapter so revolting that were
the teetimony less atrong than it is I
should bMitale to believe it. it is prop
er to explain that straw is used in this
institution for bedding purposes, and in
1881 454.000 pounds were billed to the
Guardians and paid for. although less
than five per cent, of the amount ever
reached tbe Almshouse. The result
was a state of affairs too dreadful for
minute description. For nearly a year
tbe entire institution was without means
of securing clean and healthy resting
place# for the Intnates. In the epklep
tic ward, in tbe insane department, the
beds became so foul snd moistened and
the air so alarmingly pestilent#! that
they were burned and the patients com
pelled to lie upon tbe floor, protected
by whatever slight covering could be
secured, tbe physicians in charge pre
ferring a risk upon the floor to certain
death upon tbe bed. One inmate be
coming alarmed at tbe state of affairs
emptied bis bed and pillow-tick and re
filled it with shavings picked up in the
uodevtaker's shop. Another shameful
cause for grave reeults has been the em
ployment of brutal aod inexperienced
nurses, who bare mercilessly clubbed
and beaten the inmates upon little or
no provocation. One poor demented
creature bad three of his ribs broken
end his bead hammered open by a nurse
who had taken offense at hit chattering.
The principal qualification of a man
nurse at tbe Almshouse has been gene
rally his ability to carry bis division.
"The bad sewerage of tbe Almshouse
baa in itself been a serious cause for
complaint. One physician, noting an
alarming increase of over 300 per cent,
ia tbedeeth rate in his department, in
▼eetlgated the canse and found, direct
ly beneath, a cellar containing putrid
matter several inched deep and extend
ing over a space of thirty feet. When
complaint was made and better newer
jago and plumbing demulided tiie mi'
swerwas: 'limitiioicut appropriation.'
Forty patients died in this department
during the period they were breathing
tlia dentli dealing vapors from this tel
ler, and after cleansing the number of
deaths was reduced to ten for a corres
ponding period.
hE Mil STALK INO ABROAD.
"The death rate in the enti-e institu
tion, including every department, was
in 1881 ntiout twelve per rent. In the
Charity Hospital in New York tor 11 its
same year the death rate \va six ami
six-tenths per cent, in the IVnnylvitni.-
Hospital, where thousands ol extreme
cases are treated from railroad accidents
tires, etc., the death rate was eight per
cent. In the hospital department alone
at our Almshouse the l ate of dt atli w -s
fourteen and eighty one-hundredths per
cent. deducting those departments
where there is little or no mortality,and
including strictly the medical and sur
gical watd, tiie death rate e about
eighteen per cent. At Hlockley, in tho
maternity department, the rate of death
was eight per cent. At tho Charity
Hospital, of New York, in the same d<
partnient the rate of death was bill on
iialf per cent. At Hockley, in the
foundling ward, the rite of death was
one hundred percent; in the white nur
sery, forty-six per cent; in the Colored
nursery fidytwop-r cent; children's
asylum, eighteen per cent. The lady
who had charge ol thefce departments,
in writing her contribution to the year
ly report, says ; 'I am pleased to say
that the health of the children duiing
the year has been uniformly g >o I.'
"In the white obstetrical ward at
Hlockley out of >7 patients treated 13
(lied ; rate of death forty nine and a halt
per cent.
I'TEMI A IS TIIE lIOSI'ITAL.
"At the Pennsylvania Hospital there
has not been a single ease of pyemia or
hospital disease, (or live years, with an
average of three thousand cases treated
yearly. At the Charity Hospital, New
t'ork, there were but three eases during
1871 out of eight thousand pali-m*
treated. A* our Almshouse, during
1881, out of forty three hundred patients
treated there w-re twenty two cases of
pyemia. This desease is rarely found
outside of a hospital, and its prevalence
is an evidence ol bad venti'nlion, ob
structed sewerage, filthy beds, improper
food, neglected attendance at 1 like
causes. There were more people died
in the Almshouse during l-s-l. in j r<>
portion to the population, than in anv
year since 1865, am) that, too, w:lh a
fewer number of inmates than sine
-1864. In the insnne department the
rate of death was twelve and a iial" pr
cent. At the Nsrristown Hospital b-r
tho Insane tho rate of deatii hits been
about eight per cent, and this is c nsid
ere-1 very iar,--- by tio- physicians il
charge and attributable in tlie.r- ; m ■
to the influx of a large numl > r of |,v

CINCINNATI, November I—A Lexing
ton (Ky.)speeial says 'Troops guard

lacked by a mob. Ihe soldiers fired
and several were killed and wounded
of the attacking party. The prisoners
and troops got saf-lv on board, when
the moii seized a train and headed oil
the boat at Ashland, Ky.. where anoth
er attack was tn ide. * The troops r<
turned the fire, and again a number of
the mofi were killed and wounded. So
far as known only three of the soldier*
were wounded, and they but s'ightly.
Private dispatches received here piece
the number of killed at five and the
wounded at thirty. The steamer (iran
ite State has passed Portsmouth, and
unless the fog prevent* will reach Mays
ville to night, where the prisoner* will
lie transferred 10 the railroad to he
taken to Lexington.''
A special dispatch to the Commmi-tl
from Ashland, Ky., says: I hi* noon
twenty five men and boys who were
partly intoxicated seized an engine and
car and went to Catlettsburg, agsinst
the advice of sober men who list night
gave up all hope of getting the priso
ners from the militatv.
When they reached Catlettsburg 'bey
made no effort to capture the prisoner*,
who were safely p'ac-d on beard the
steamer Granite State at 3 o'clock r. m.
The crowd then hastened back to Ash
land, and about twenty of them went
to a ferryboat and by tbeooe of pislols
I compelled the captain to put out to in
tercept the Granite State.
Their altitude was so.ridiculous and
their case so hopeless that the Affair
would have been a farce but for the
recklesa discbarge of a revolver in thA
bands of one of.the ho** on tbe ferry
boat. It Was answered st nms hv a
volley from the soldiers, The balls
pierced lift boiler Of tlib ferry and
the escaping steam cinplrtrl) disabled
the mob.
By this tints a great crowd had gath
ered on tbe bauk* of the river and In
tbe houses, Tho soldiers turned their
guns on them and fired without provo
cation. Here tbe mischief was done.
Only three were wounded on the ferry
boat, while all the other* on the casualty
list ware of the peaceable people on the
shore.
The following is a list of tbe killed :
George Keener, James McDonald, Col.
Rep|>ert, snd an infant in it* molh< r's
