Voorhees by the State Republican leaders has been mistaken for thunder within the last few days. State Asylum. Ahaeee The evidence presented yesterday against the management of the State Hospital fer; the Insane at Trenton, was of the most convincing description. After read ing the reiterated story of rotten and dis gusting food offered alike to inmates and officers one cannot but be convinced that the management of the institution ie ut terly corrupt aad malfeasant. It is broadly asserted that dishonesty and abuse are not confined to the eatables. All the supplies are purchased, it is al leged, under a system of favoritism and lebbery by which the public are victim toed as to their pockets and the inmates as to their health and comfort. What we really want is a Democratic administration at Trenton to clear out the whole Augean stable of Republican mis r rule. ___ ! ’Wsstosa Valorn sal ths Oreem Oosds All good citizens sincerely hope that Chief of Polios Murphy will succeed in Me efforts to bring to punishment the Western Union Telegraph people, who aid and abet the green goods men in their nefarious business. It is a well known fact among that class In the community who. for want of a hotter appellation, are called “sporting people," that if it were not for the Western Union telegraph sys tem mush of the gambling and other vio lations of the law aow going on could not Mist. Pool sellsrs, policy dealers and green goods men cannot carry on their swiadiing operations without ths uss of ths telegraph and they cannot use the wires to advantage unless they are shield ed and protected by the company and Its agents. No one knows this better than the. gamblers and they govern theiilselves accordingly. The Western Union gets all this kind of business, while its rival, the •Foetal, would have to shut up shop if Its existence depended upon criminal patronage. The reason for this state of affairs is well known. While the- Western Union tefuses to give the police any Information about law breaker# on the ground that the law prohibits them from doing so, ‘ the Postal has always been ready to give the police what assistance it could In the work of -bringing criminals to justice. •The consequence of thie has been that every crook or swindler, big or little, who has any occasion to use a telegraph Wire la his work of robbing the unwary, re sorts to the Western Union. Ie It reasonable to suppose that the company In thie particular is actuated solely by a dezire to observe the strict letter of the law and protect its patrons it ‘.the usual rates? It seems mildly Im probable, to say the least. This Western Union Company is the lame wealthy corporation which makes 11* underpaid little messenger boys wade through the slush and rain in all con ditions of weather to deliver messages, yalem they can extort car fare from sym pathetic people with tales of woe or bunco the unwary with false pretences. Kven If Chief Murphy should succeed •In his present undertaking, what good will W accomplish? Some poor underpaid subordinate may have to go to jail while the high officials will see to It that the Company continues to give the criminals pll the assistant- -they need so long as such a course increases the company# dividends. Why does not the Chief try to have some of the director* of the company ln dlcted? ________ SUMMER OUTINGS. Ur. John P. Lund ring, of Duncan ave du« !■ summering at Wirrtpont, N.

New York Central Objects to Jersey lines Enter ing New York City. Th* New York Central Railroad has de clared Ha opposition to tile construction of the North Ktver bridge, which it is I proposed to build about Twenty-third, street. New York City, and which is now openly supported by the Pennsylvania Railroad. The New York Ceutral does not like the idea of the railroads now ter minating on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River obtaining a great terminal station in New York City, and thus threatening its present advantage on Manhattan Island. It has Intimated that the plans to build that atructure will be obstructed. The Pennsylvania Railroad is now so committed to carrying through the bridge that It is a mere question of time when active work will be com menced. The development of the opposition from the New York Central has for the time be lng. halted the efforts to obtain agreement among the railroads reaching the New Jersey shore front, as to the guarantees they are ready to give for the building of the bridge. These efforts, however, will be resumed easily in the fall, and it Is hoped that this part of the plan for carrying through the bridge project will result In an early agreement among the railroads con cerned. The apportioning of the guaran tee, which will be necessary before the financial plan can be worked out, will take considerable time. At present several railroads are not eager to uume the liability which would be involved by an agreement to use the bridge, but the advantages of the New York terminus which It would secure are so obvious that no doubt Is felt by those active In promoting the construction of the bridge that all the railroads reaching Jersey City will undertake their separate shares of the burden. Pennsylvania offi cers are so determined to have a bridge connection that they will be prepared to tell any railroad holding back that the bridge will be built by the Pennsylvania Railroad Individually if It cannot be built as a union enterprise. The question of the New York Central’s opposition policy is left to the Pennsylvania officers for settlement, and it Is believed that any obstructive tactics will be overcome. --- . ■ HIBERNIANS’ PICNIC l«MH»lgkt% Festival to Bo HoM Holt Meadaj Hl^t The Ancient Order of Hibernians, Di vision No. 3, will hold its annual summer night'e festival Monday evening.

The members of Raglan Dodge, No. 80. and their friends went to Locust Grove, pn Long Island Sound, yesterday, on the annual excursion. Several mishaps oc curred before the excursionist* got well under way and the merrymakers cam* very near not getting to the grove. After leaving the Jersey City dock a landing was made at Thirty-first street. East River, to take on some people. When the start was made from the last pier the Steamer took a header for the wharf and bumped hard into .the big pier heads. Everybody wa* jarred a bit and the barge swayed and rocked enough to alarm the people. Then the hawser parted up the stream. The steamer had to chose the drifting barge with its several hundred frightened souls on board. AH danger past .the party settled down for solid enjoyment. There was dancing on the boats and at the grove. AU hod a good time. The excursion returned about eight o’clock. COUNTY OFFICIALS’ HOLIDAYS All the Court House officials were on duty this morning although many of their subordinates are enjoying well earned va cations.

(Continued from First Page.) “Tell of any complaints made by the medical staff other than those of l)r. Jones ?v “What were they?” asked Dr. Wart! ty way of answer. “Dr. Felty made a complaint. What was that?" asked Mr. Backes. “Dr. Felty complained of the quality of j the eggs served, which, he said, were de- J composed." "When were they served?” "From the east kitchen, the' woman’s1 kitchen. Dr. Felty said the eggs were bad and were sent up unwashed." I "How many were served from this kitchen?” "About 300.” "Did you make a personal investiga- j tlon?" "No.” “Wasn’t H your di^j^to find out if 300 persons were served with rotten meat?” ■ “I was not at home that day.” “On the day it was reported by Dr. Jones that rotten meat was served, were ■ you at home?” "Tes.” “When was the meat brought to you?” "Right after dinner.” "Have you any report of the .meat from tho supervisors?” “I have not.” “How is that?” “They made no report on the subject.” “Lately, what reports have you re ceived?’’ “That poor meat was furnished.” “When the attendants made their first complaint to you, what did you say?” “I told them to put the complaints In writing.” ‘•Why?’* “I wanted to have their exact grounds for complaint to present to the warden. By Mr. Buchanan—"Regarding the eggs, did they find their way Into the su pervisors’ reports?” "They were not referred to in the re ports." By Mr. Backes—"How many supervis ors are there?” “Bight when the corps is full, but there is not a full complement at present." At this point in the investigation a re cess of half an hour was taken for lunch, the afternoon session being continued by the' examination of three of the attend ants who signed the petition. The first witness, William Newshan, was very positive in the assertion that much of the food furnished was bad ana not fit to eat. Mr. Newshan was none too familiar with the language, being a Oerraan, and his failure to fully compre hend the tenor of the questions and to frame hia answers to ewprese what he clearly meant led to some discrepancies, of which full advantage was taken by the Invesltgo.ors. Mr. Newshan wu taken In hand by Mr. Walker and vigorously Interrogated concerring the quality of the food sefv «d. The specific allegations for the week covered by the complaint of the at tendants were fully gone Into, the witness insisting that much of the food was so bad he could not eat It, although he was sometimes at a loss for words to express In whet way It was faulty: "Was the ham complained of poor?” asked Mr. Walker. "Yes. most of the ham was bad.” “Bad, how? In what condition was it?" “I didn’t eat any of It?” “How about the corned beef?” "It was bad, not fit to eat most of ths time.” "How about the steak?” "It was tough.” “How about the roast beef?” "It was bad.” “What was the matter with It?” “It stunk." "How about the prunes?" “They were bad, too.” "How about the cold boiled ham?” "It was bad.” By the Governor—“Won't you kindly tell what you mean by bad?” "Well, It smelled bad." "Was It mouldy?” “Yes.” “Did you see any bugs In it?” “There were none that I saw.” "Wasn’t It solid?” "Yes." , "How about the fat?” "It was brown and looked bad.” By Mr. Walker—"How about the boiled cabbage?” "I didn’t aat any.” “Do you know anything about It?" "It was bad.” "How about the cheese served Monday night r’ “I don’t know anything about that?” "How came it that you signed the com plaint about all these things if you knew about only part of them?” “I took It from the word of the others and looking at ths food.” j "How about the lettuce at Tuesday’s dinner?” “I don’t know about that.’’ "How about the eggs?" “The eggs were bad.’* “Did you eat any of them?” "No." "Did you see any one who did?” "No." “What became of tho eggs?” "I don’t know.” “How about the Irish stew Wednesday?" “It smelled bad.” "Did you eat any?” a "I tried to, but oouldn*..* "Do you like Irish stew, anyhow?” “Yes, when It’s good." "How about soup. Do you have soup all the time?” . __ “Twice a week.” r * ' * '* \ "How was It?” . J-** ,. “Not good. It tasted flat.”. "When did you first have any com plaints about the food from any other at tendants?” i' served j "Last month." "Did any of the patients complain?" "Tee." “Who? Name some of them?" “Daniel Wyckoff, Patrick McNann, Far rell Williams, George Wilson, Terrence Mann. "What are your duties?” ‘To see to the patients and keep them In order." "Did you ever make any report con cerning the food?” "No, sir.” r f T f i “Isn't It your duty?” i “No.” "What Instructions have you? Are there any printed rules by which you go?” "No, they are Only written and verbal." “If the food Is as bad as you say, what do you lly* on?" “Bread and butter, principally.” ""Mow was the butter?" "Fair, sometimes, but generally bad.” By the Governor: ”Tou say tho quality of the eggs''ftirtittlfeft' wab'bud;’* too Jou mean only your*?" “They were hot fit to eat." "Were the eompiaints made hr the po tlenta as to the quality or quantity ofti-.e foodr* "The quality.” "In what respect did they complain?” "Simply said It wu bid." "On frequent occasion*?" "Quite often.” "Your arlevance la as to the character of the food?" “Yen." “You say the prunes were bad, what made them bad?” The witness was somewhat at a loss how to answer this question which caused Mr. Andrews to remark that he did not know what a bad ess was or what a had prune was. By Mr. Baldwin—“You say the corned beef was tad? How bad was it?" •‘It was tainted.” By Mr. Backes—“Did you ever see any of the patients get sick from eating the stew?” _. "No.” ••Have you seen any leave the table?" “Yes.” ■"Why did they leave?” "Some of them were too crasy to eat.” “Any other reason?” “They were not feeling well.” "How often were prunes served? The dietary calls for fruit Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday." "It was generally either prunes or ap ple sauce.” "Do you mean to say that apple sauce and prunes are the only fruit served?*’ “Some times there are peaches?” “Is that all?” “Yes.” “What kind of dessert do you have?” “Corn starch and rice.” “Pie is on the hill of fare for Sunday. How often do you have Hr* “We had It once, Christmas Day.” “Do you ever get lee cream?" "We had it on the Fourth of July.” “Ever have it before?* “No.” "How were the potatoes served?” “Boiled, always.” “Were they garnished with bugs or roaches?” “No.” “What is the prevailing vegetable?" “Potatoes.” “How many times have you had pea3 this year?” '•Three or four.” “Beans?” “Four or live times.” "Lettuce?” “Twice." "Do you have any canned vegetables?” “Tomatoes, Sundays.” “How long have the potatoes been bad?” “Five or six months." By Mr. Buchanan—"How can you boil a rotten potato?” "Cut out the bad.” By Mr. Backes—"Did you ever make a complaint to the supervisor?" “No.” "How were the potatoes served in the morning?” ' "They were fried.” "How were they cooked?” “They were greasy.” "Were they old?” “Yes.” The examination of Newshan closed by some questions by Mr. Andrews, whose chief aim seemed to be to discredit the witness’s testimony. Clarence O. Clemens had as bad a case of “rattles” when he took the witness clialr as it was possible for a man to possess. He spoke almost in a whisper and thoroughly those who heard him and those who in vain endeavored to do so. He played with his Anvers nervously and clearly showed a fear that his position was at stake. His admissions were drawn, or hammered, out of him. D-. Ward, after the investigation, apologised for his conduct by stating that it was the first time he had ever been sworn and that hts backwardness was no doubt due to the excitement and novelty of his situation. Clemens stated that he had been a hall attendant at the hospital for ten months. He had been raised on a farm and knew what wholesome food was and he knew that the stuff served at the Trenton State Hospital for the Insane did not belong to that class. He has been on duty in the first, eighth, fifth and twelfth wards and In the dining room. The food he ate. acocrdlng to his own statements, was the same, as was served to the patients. He acknowledged signing the com plaint and that he had been one of the committee to wait on Dr. Ward with « verbal complaint. He heard Dr. Ward tell the committee of which he was one to put its complaint in writing. “The attendants drew it up,” he said. "Emerick wrote it out and we signed it. The contents of the paper are true. The food was not good when I came here ten months ago. The morning we waited on Dr. Ward I left the breakfast table with out having tasted a bite. “The canned food was not fit to eat. Its looks were enough for me. The potatoes looked green on the outside; they were black on the inside. The rice was cooked in water and served without milk. It was poor. The dried beef was pretty fair. I do not care for prunes. The tea was not very good. I have had better. It would be hard to get worse. The tea tasted bitter. Quite a good deal of boiled ham was served. It was served cold. Was yellow around the bone. I couldn’t eat It. It didn't taste as it ought to have ordinarily. Sometimes It was fair.” W. O. Miller, an Intelligent looking young man with smooth face, came to the hospital eight months ago. His story was much better than those told by his predecessors. His tones were clear and hts answers prompt. "Eight months ago, when I first came to the hospital," he said, "the food was not fit. to eat. It continued so. A short time before the complaint was made to Dr. Ward It was worse than ever. I signed the petition. Mr. Ingram handed it to me. We had talked the matter over before. None of the medical staff had ever spoken to me about tt. “The canned corned beef smelled badly. It was tart and sour, mouldy often, never At to eat. The boiled potatoes were never At to eat until after tbe complaint. New potatoes have since been served. I ate what was At and the patients had to eat them or do without eating. •'The rlc* was bad. It wasn’t cooked. It was rar* rice, soaked In water. The dried beef was fair. The prunes were dried and hard. The meat stuck to the stone. They bad a bitter taste. At some meals they were' not so bad as at others. I like good prunes. The tea was fair sometimes. At other times It was simply water. The ham was maggoty a number of times. I found It so on my own plate three or four times. I made no report to any one because I did not think it my business until things got so bad I couldn't endure it any longer, when we at last went to Dr, Ward. •The coffee was tolerably fair. The cabbage was never fit to eat, and the corned beef cooked with It was lk simi lar condition.- The cabbage Vwa* . often rotten and never half cooked. / The corned «|"<1 -'a t»a<9 smell. it wh rank sometimes. “The cheese ww fair somstimes, but wai generally unfit to eat. The bread was too heavy. The butter was some times fairly good, but was usually so strong wo couldn't cat It. "The beefsteaks were always tough. The cold roast beef was sometimes really good. Other times It was not fit to eat. It was oftener bad tban good. The to matoes varied- They were always stewed. WlitAher canned or not I cannot say Sometimes they were sour and slimy. They were usually served Sunday. What berries we had were usually good. Some times we had bad strawberries. The soup and Irish stew were not fit to eat. Of the soup I never managed to eat a single plate. It was unseasoned and too thin. I have talked these matters over with the other attendants since the second week I was here.” The investigation then adjourned until Thursday at 11 A. M., when Miller will be called back for cross-examination. Governor Voorhees Thinks Method of Governing Institutions Is Poor. [Special to "The Jersey City News.”J TRENTON, Aug. S, 1*01.—Governor Veorhees, who was an interested partici patit in the investigation, is firmly eon- , vinctxl that a complete change in the sys tem of management would be beneficial to the State. The Governor believes that rot only the State Hospital, but the State Prison and similar state institutions could be greatly Improved by the adoption of a system bringing them all under the con . troi of a single board of managers. At the conclusion of yesterday's session of the investigating committee, the Governor explained his views on the subject. ‘I have long thought,” said the Governor, “that improvements car. be made in the methods that are in vogue. It is my fain belief that the best results could be ob tained by appointing a central govern ment, or board of managers, consisting of three members to have complete supervis ion of all State Institutions. These men should be paid for their services a sum sufficient to warrant their devoting their time to the work, for it is really too much to ask a busy man to devote the time necessary to the proper supervision of a large institution gratuitously. Mv idea is that the board should be composed of one lawyer, one physician and one business man, each fully competent to advise upon any questions which may arise. “I have been considering the methods employed in other States and am particu larly impressed with the success of that employed in New York State, where such a beard exists. This board purchases tha supplies for all the institutions and by buying large quantities Is able to save the State large sums of money besides se curing the moat satisfactory results. "In the cost of the Elmira Reformatory the cost of maintenance per capita was reduced from $4.85 to $4.02 a week, a sav ing of nearly one-fifth. Jn Wisconsin and Kansas, similar systems have been tried 8nd proven equally satisfactory. ‘This matter w^s canvassed a year ago and there were many with whom I talk ed who think that sooner or later a change must be made and a closer rela tion established between the State and its institutions. It is a matter for subse quent legislatures to consider.” The Governor, Senator Stokes and other legislators have expressed the opinion that there was not enough direct ac countability between the State and Its in stitutions. The proposition to have a Board of Correction and Charities was agitated in connection with the criticisms on the State Charities Aid and its rights to enter with supervisory powers the State institutions. The treatment of the insane in county asylums is a change in the insane system calling for supervision. The people of the State, whether for State or county institutions, are expend ing over a million of dollars for its un fortunate classes. Each institution is a separate government in itself, and there is no connection between the manage ment and the people. The alleged connections are the' stand ing and Joint committees of the Legisla ture, but the experience of the past ten years has shown that these committees take a superficial view of their duties and accomplish nothing. While it has been suggested that something might be ac complished enlarging the scope and defin ing the duties of the Joint committees, the Governor does not regard this as an adequate solution of the problem. One reason he gives for this is the question as to what such committees could accom plish on account of the constantly chang ing personnel of the House, which is not a continuous body, and concerning the return of whose members there is always uncertainty.
