ITY. He said that In was aware of unpleas
ant feelings between Mr. Herry and Dr.
Hutchinson but he state.d that this feel
ing exti niled also to the other doctor.-,
and officers ot the Institution. Dr.
Hutchinson seemed to use mure; author
ity than was given hin by the trustees
and seenuvl to have little interest in tlio
management of the hosj ital. He never
knew of any presents being received by
any nf tbo doctors with one i r two x
eeptious when presents uf candy laid
cigars were received from a grocery
house In Boston. To hl.-i knowledjro no
hospital supplies bad been used by any
of tho doctors for personal use. With
regard ti the statements made by out
side pirties that n. great Je.il of company
was i ntertaiiii d nt tho hospital at the
expense of the State, hi' said the'o state
ments were utterly without foundation.
Tlio treatment of the patients was al
ways goeil and the food and medical
treatment goe'd Thi re is need of liuio
out.liiPi' exercise tint, at present this is
not practicable owing to the small en
cKsid s.pace '.ounce ted with the hospital.
Ho Slid that in the past eight vears SJ
attendants had been dl-di trged em ac
count of ill treatment of the patients.

lo practically the same- effect as Dr.
Andrews. Ho also testllled in regard
to the case eif Mis. liowman, who 't
was alleged had been glvi'n a post
mortem bath before she was dead. Ho
said that Mrs. Jiowman had been a pa
tient on the ward over which he had
supervision. When he found that Mrs.
Bowman was failing he sent a tele
gram to her husband who came on thn
night train and was at the. hospital
some time before the patient passed
Ho stated that she had been given a
bath about six o'clock in the morning,
it being necessary owing to her cond
tlon, und had lived for two hours after
tlio bath. Ho said tlio story had every
evidence- of being absolutely false, ns
tho nurse in charge gave the patient
her bath while the post mortem bath
was aways given by the supervisor.
Tho last witness was Dr. W. I). Was
siin. pathologist. He testllled that ho had
investigated several cases whem it had
been stated tnat patients had been 111
iibcd and found the statements false. No
autopsies were ever made without tho
consent of the friends and relatives of
the dceeascd; about l:',l had been made
