THE (On.H!SMSIRN TAKE TKSTI MOST RELATIVE TO AUEfiED ABl'SEN. The Testimony of Xhc Children Regarding; the Ue of the Jlnliil-St tmHt or tJio n affluent. Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Sessions and Crockett, accompanied by representatives of tho press, visited the Orphans' Home for the purpose of investigating tho recent flogging of the boy Fi ed Gray. The examination w as held in the school room, with tho children the managers of the institution and the teacher who flogged the boy being excluded from the room. THE CHILDREN'S' VERSIOX OF THE FIjOGGIXU. Half a dozen of the older boys and girls were asked to tell what they saw. o? the whipping. They all testified nearly alike and substantially as follows: Gray was in the sjielling class, and failed in the word "bite." Miss Harris told him to be seated, and he began to cry. She re peated the order, at which he picked up the stove poker (a piece of broomstick, about three feet long), and advanced toward the teacher. He attempted to strike her with it, but did not succeed. She then twisted it from his hands and struck him two blows on the back. (Some of the children held that several blows were struck.) He then attempted to strike her with hi3 fist, but did not succeed. The two fought and wrestled, and Miss Harris bringing a black rawhide from the closet, whipped him with it, and calling in Mr. Mill? to witness the whipping. Mr. Mills took no part in the whipping, except to stand by and order it done. He did not take hold of the boy at all. Upon the length of time occupied by the whipping the children gave vague tes timony. Seme thought it fifteen minutes and some longer. It was generally agreed by them that it began shortly after the class was called (10:33) and lasted until llo'clock or thereabouts. One of the children testi fied that about one hundred blows were struck. The whip used was picked up in the road by one of the boys. It had fallen from a passing cait. it was a large black whip. Gray, in the scuffle, pushed Miss Harris to ward the hall. Wheu he said: "What have you that stick for ?" He replied, "I'd show you why." He made an attempt to strike with the stick before she whipped him. now FCNisa.xj exts were ixflicted. Several children testified that they had been whipped for not being able to get their lessons although they frequenty stayed in to get them. They were required to write words fiva hundred or a thousand times, were locked up or whipped with a ruler or rawhide. Some one was whipped nearly every day. They had been shut up for not going to church, but never flogged. Some boys had been flogged; not for s'ay ing away from church, but for disobeying other rules when they stayed away. They h id been told not to speak to Mr. or Mrs. Webb even should they be spoken to by them on the street or in church, and been threatened with punishment if they did so. Wheu they had written to their guardians and expressed a liking for the Webbs tho letters were inspected and they were not allowed to put such expressions in. They were als.- ; ; b idden to call on the Webbs under threat ui punishment. TETTI1IONY OF TWO GIRLS. Mary Fay, aged nine years, volunteered the statement to th-3 Committee that she had been beaten with a rule and rawhide until her body was black and bine. She had beeu taken into a closet and flogged for not siBsni) and Miss Harris had left the doors open that the boys might witness the punishment. The witness said that Ida Johnson, Josie Enders, and Alice Beals had been spanked in tho preseuce of the boys, their clothes being pulled up. Ida John sou, also nine years, corroborated this tes timony. They also said that Lizzie Moore had been slapped in the mouth for whisper ing until her lips swelled, and that Miss Harris had cut one children's ears wi h her finger nail until it bled, besides pinching their arms until they were marked. None of the children witnessed the whip ping of Wise. He was locked up after wards, and soma of tho boys talked to him through the window, but their testimony wa3 not material. i JOD, LODGING, ETC. When asked regarding the food they all agreed that they had plenty to eat, and that the bod in which they slept were as good as they wanted, and provided with plenty of blankets and sheets. They were also warm ly dressed, and had no cause for complaint. Much other testimony was given, but it was oi had no issue. a rambling, desultory nature, and special beariug on the subjects at THE OTHER SIDE. Mr. Mills aad Miss Harris were then called in and told what the testimony of the children had been. Regarding the whipping of Gray, Miss Harris . denied striking him v.nh the poker, but admitted that. Rome blows niiaht have reached his body in the scuffle for the stick. She claimed that the boy had struck her a glanc ing blow in the face with his fist. She had used the rawhide, but not any more than she considered necessary under the circum stances. She admitted the whipping of Mary Fay with a ruler, but denied the use of the rawhide. The girl interrupted the teacher by strenuously insisting that the rawhide was used. Miss Harris admitted spanking some of the girls in the presence of the school. She took them behind the stove when the spauking was done, and their faces were toward the schoo', so that there was no exposure of person. She ad ministered the punishment to the tills in the 2'i'esence of the school, she said, to humiliate them, as other methods of pun ishments? hid failed. For missing !es ns had been in the habit of giving them ;ive or ten strokes with a ru'er. She bel cved that whipping was neccessary to enforce discipline. The children admitted that when the frills were spanked their faces were toward the school. THE WISE CAE. Mr. Mills explained to the Committee why he whipped the boy Wise so severely. He had threatened to kill Mrs. Mills, and sfcrucK her a severe blow ia the face with his fist, the scirof which was exhibited. He immediately ran out of the house after he struck her, and this was why he remained out ail night. The boy had been in jail, and once had been examined for insanity. Mr. Mills flogged the boy pretty hard, as he thought the case fully warranted it The boy had expressed a desire to go to California, saying he could get work, and he was allowed to go. He was ninet-en years old, and well able to earn his living. He was not sent surreptitiously, but with th consent of the Board. Tho boys, as a rule, Mr. Mills said, liked to go to church Those who did not wish to go were lecked up to deprive them of tho pleasure of roving about and running away to play base ball with hoodlum boys of the town. They had been taken at different times to the Catholic, Me'hodist and Presbyterian churches, but as a rule to the Episcopal church, because Mrs. Mills was a member of that church. He had forbidden them to call on the Weebs, because he believed that they were trying to break up the discipline of the place and poison the minds of tho boys. Mrs. Quinn is a discharged laundress. He thought she had done more than any one to ferment public opinion regarding the Home and had written lying letters in all directions to make all the trouble she 'could. Every one who had ever been discharged was the sworn enemy of the Home, and the storie3 that tho initiates were dirty, lousy and starved came from these irresponsible sour ces. The rod hr.d been used freely where the children were incorrigable Miss Har ris said that she whipped the children as a last resort Sometimes twice a week and sometimes every other day. Some of the girls were very impudent. One girl who had been whipped resisted her and said that she would not allow herself to b pun ished. Here tho girl, aged eleven years, rose up and explained to the Committee that Miss Harris had threatened to lay her across her kn.-e ia presence of the boys, and it was only on this occasion that she rebelled. This Miss Harris denied. She ad mitted slapping a girls mouth, but did not 1- ZL . 11 1 ' A n 'r Know mat it causeu uer lips to sweii. iurs Mills said that she had frequently invited clergymen of different denominations to come and hold service on Sunday.
