This paper is Democratic in principles and is inaependent in its cities on alt local questions. Discipline Demanded. Aa far as can bo learned, there geems to be no disposition upon the part of the Fourth Regiment authorities to brtng to account those militiamen who brought such disgrace upon the National Guard of the State during the recent encampment at Bea Girt. The Tact that certain hood lums are permitted to toss in a blanket anyone, male or female, who appeals to them as a good subject for their question tionable sport, without any attempt to hold them to account, reflects everything but credit upon the service. It is no wonder. In the light of such occurrences as these, that every winter when the ap propriation bill comes up in the Legisla ture the hayseed statesman attacks the Herr, for the support of tile National Guard and the maintenance of tae camp at Sea Girt, on the ground that the an nual encampments are huge picnics where the militiamen go to have a good lime and raise thunder at the expense of the State. B*n«r Tori sal J—y ‘About the only newspaper In the State which expressed anything but charity for poor Barney Ford on the occasion of his death, last week, was the Trenton "True American.” And yet before the editor of that paper was scared out of a week s growth by the Voorhees Senatorial Com mittee's too close inquiry into the meth ods whereby the "True American” got nice fat stationery jobs contrary to the law requiring all such goods to be fur nished by contract, this same editor was one of the people who used to pat Barney on the back, call him a good fellow and frequently visit his attractive apartments In the State House. , , Panto Stricken. Things are growing worse and worse every day for the Republican party in this State. Hourly it becomes more ap parent that the people will, in November, take from it the power which it has so shamelessly abused during the past six years. A sign of the times is that even the Republicans themselves see the hand writing on the wall, and they are no longer trying to close their eyes to it. The New York "Press,” one of the most subservient of the Republican organs which circulates in this State, takes an exceedingly gloomy view of the situation. It says this morning:— The New Jersey Democrats have practically the better of the situation in the preliminary aspect of the State campaign. The “Press” would not have been at all but of the way if it had added, “and in every other aspect, too.” The course of the Democratic party in New Jersey grows stronger with every rising sun, and the result of next fall’s election will simply be a question of the Democratic majority. True Economy. The New Jersey Republican policy of bogus economy Is coming In just now for strong condemnation from ar. unexpected quarter. Some of the newspapers withir. the party fold are severely criticising a piece of Injustice as small anti mean as was ever perpetrated. It appears that for about eight years a boy named Joe McManus filled the post cf doorman at the big glass doors which guard the entrahce to the State House. Naturally of a delicate constitution, the draughts which continually blow through the corridors proved too much for hint and he was obliged to take to his bed. The highly moral and upright State Houee Commission, who so conscientious ly guard the treasury of the State,-or think that they do so.—concluded that the interests of the taxpayers would Buffer materially if Joe's large salary of *30 a month was continued while he was too ill to perform his duties. It is said that the boy ha* not long to live and the pittance which h* received from the Stale, if ho could get It, would do much toward alle viating the hardships of his last days. But that ha» no weight with the good Repub lican. Next winter, when Comptroller Hancock’S annual juggle of the State s finances is laid before the Legislature, much stress Will be laid upon the saving in the expenditures of the State which the Republican party has been able to make by taklnr from a poor little con sumptive the bagatelle which would have made his last days of suffering a little more comfortable.

Kallon of Washing ton street and Mis* Kittle Hickey and MUa &s of New York are spending the month# of August and September at the Hotel Rudolph, Atlantic City_ n A Mra Andrew J. Wright, Mrs. uwen a.

Or a»d Mrs. Alexander and Mr. and Mrs Coxen of this city havew«*»**f* * cottage In Cairo, in the Catskills, where they will remain for one month. (Continued from First Fage.) added Mr. Andrews, “but for all that I suppose It must be all right because it's so much used.” “There la a complaint here about the ham. Can you tell anything else about it?” asked Mr. Walker. “It was generally yellow around the bone and I have seen It a number of times with maggots in It.” “How long ago?” "About two weeks since.” “How many times have you seen it in this condition?” “Perhaps three or four." "Were there many maggots In it?” “Yes.” “Where was it served?” "It was served in dining room No. 12, on the lower floor, from the west kitchen.” “You say the eggs were often bad, now often?” , “I have frequently broken six eggs be fore getting a good one." “There were some good ones, then?” “Yes.” "Enough good ones to go around?” “No." “How many were bad?” “On an average half of them were not edible.” By Judge Thompson—“Of the one-haif. how many were actually spoiled?” "All of them." By Mr. Walker—“What complaint have you to make of the Irish stew?” "It had a bad smell, was very slimy, and lacked ingredients. It was a sort of mixture of flour and gravy and chops composed the meat used.” "Did you eat any of it?” “Yes, of late. It improved after the pe tition was presented. There are more in gredients in it now, onions and potatoes having been added. "How often is it served?” “Once a week.” "Wnen Is soup served and what varie ties do you get?” “It’s always the same kind, made of rice and beans with too much water. It was not good, or at least it never suited my taste." By Judge Thompson—"What food do you now get that is satisfactory V "Potatoes and vegetables. The corned beef Is the same; the beefsteak is tough; the tea and coffee have not changed; the eggs are bad and the corned beef is no tetter." By Mr. Backes—“Did you make no per sonal complaint further than the general complaint to Dr. Ward?” “No.” “Now in the institution in which you were previously how did the dietary com pare with that here?” ' "It was much more varied.” By Judge Thompson—"Why was it you didn’t complain?” •Because I didn't have charge of the dining rooms.” By Mr. Backes—“Why did you not make a complaint to the supervisor?” “Because I was not an old man, and felt diffident. I thought it would seem overofficious.” “Did you ever have any rotten or stale eggs opened or served in the presence of the supervisors?” "No." “In the maggoty ham, were tne pieces affected taken from the whole ham or parts of it?” ‘They were found in the ends and parts of the ham. I sliced it, but did not serve it.” “Do they frequently furnish cold ham for dinner?” “Yes.” “What was the popular vegetable?” ••Potatoes.'’ ••What else?” "Sometimes cabbage.” “Have you more than one vegetable, as a rule?” "Not often.” “Anything else?” / "Sometimes coldslaw.” •’What other vegetables have been serv ed this year, and how often?” •’Beans, three or four times; peas, three times; cucumbers, once; beets, once, and lettuce, once or twice.” •’Anything else?” "Berries. We had strawberries quite often while they were in season, and we have had blackberries and huckleberries.” “Were you present at the Sunday din ner mentioned in the petition?” “Yea. ".Holt was it?” ‘There was hardly anything lit to eat.” “Do you consider that dinner was an adequate one for either the patients or attendants? "No.” (By Judge Thompson"Did you ever have corned beef served without it was canned?” “Yes.” By Mr. Backes:—“How was the cold boiled ham that day?” “It was very soft and smelled badly.” “Tell us more fully what Dr. Ward said when you went to him with the com plaint?” "He sal* tee had been looking for some thing of this kind for some time, and that he wished We would get up a petition.” "He did not seem surprised, then?” •’No.” “Does Warden Hayes ever visit the dining halls?” “I never saw Mr. Hayes in the dining rooms. I saw him once in the halls, but never in the dining bails. I saw Dr. Cort once in the dining rooms. That was about two months ago." “Why did you leave the asylum at Har risburg?” asked Mr. Buchanan. "I was discharged," said Krall, with out hesitation. “That's all." said Mr. Buchanan, with a satisfied air. "No, it's not, either,” interposed Mr. Backes. “Why were you discharged?” j “Because a patient escaped from me,” \ said Krall. “That's different,” added. Mr. Backes, and then a recess was taken for lunch. At the opening of the afternoon session Dr. Ward was called to the stand and questioned concerning some of the evi dence brought out. He was asked about the dietary, the nature of the complaints made to him and What importance he at tached to them. Generally, Dr.: Ward said, the complaints whiqh he regarded as most worthy of consideration were as to the sameness of (Jie foo<j and the ^ame ness of the character of the dishes. “What is your opinion of the character of corned beef?" asked Judge Thompson. “So far as I know, it is all right and is probably a good dish to serve, say once a week. Canned beef I don't want on my table. X won’t eat it. I think it is a proper food if a person likes it. Some of the patients like it; a great many dislike it, and personally I would never touch it. This, however, may be a matter of personal taste. It was first served here when Colonel Early was made steward. I protested against Its us# at first, but it was being very generally employed and was favafad by the managers. So far ns I know It is wholesome If properly cooked and serv ed." Dr. Ward was asked to state more specifically what complaints'lie nad re ceived as to the Tood. He said Dr,’ Corl had mado,complaints, which were gener ally of the scrvtee. He had also received numerous complaints from Dr. Jones, but Intimated that he had discounted these because of ap apparent feeling of hostil ity on the part of Dr. Jones toward \> arden Hayes. Concerning the present dietary, Dr. Ward-said he considered it a fair dietary, plain, wholesome and nutritious, and equal to the navy dietary prescribed by the United States government. In explan ation, Dr. Ward said he referred to the standard for the hospital of the emigrant stations. By Mr. Buchanan—“What about the competency of the corps of supervisors, and how were their duties discharged?” "3o far as I know, they are all effi cient." "Experienced?" "Yes, most of them were brought up In this hospital.” •"Did you ever attempt to verify their reports?” “No; I have Implicit faith in the ability and efficiency of the supervisors." By Mr. Backes—“Speaking of the ani mus of Dr. Jones, did that Influence any of the reports?” “I have no knowledge that he Incited any of the attendants." “You expressed no surprise when the attendants made their complaint?” "No.” “Did the complaints made by pr. Cort and Dr. Felty differ from the reports of the supervisors?" “Not always." ■Mr. 'Backes asked Dr. ward if he did not consider the complaints made by Dr. Jones of a serious character, to which Dr. Ward replied that he did not remem ber any which he regarded in that light. Dr. Ward was then excused and the ex amination of the attendants resumed. David Hunsicker, a hall attendant in No. 9 ward, made a good impression. He has been in the institution for thirteen months. The food served was not good when he first arrived at the institution, and it grew gradually worse until finally the attendants sent a committee to call on Dr. Ward July 17. Counselor Walker took up the petition and questioned the witness on each point. Hunsicker knew of the contents of the pe tition and would not have signed the paper, he said, had the complaints not been true. ‘The corned beef,” he continued, “was slimy, salty and full of tallow. It was ssrved very frequently, how often I can not say. Some of the patients ate it, but they would eat anything. Those who could discriminate would not eat it when it was not good. “The eggs were bad, have been bad since I have been here. I would have to break open several before I could get a reasonably good one. This condition has not been remedied. Even this morn ing at breakfast the eggs were bad. I ate two, but struck a rotten one first. The eggs were stale always, and there were many rotten, the number varying. I reported this matter to Mr. Tanner and to 'Mr. Krall, who succeeded him. I did not report the matter to Mr. Krall this morning. I reported to Mr. Tanner fre quently. I never requested him to report higher. 'The patients open their own eggs. I cannot say that any of those on my hall have ever complained to me specifically about the eggs. They have told me that ’the food was bad. “The coffee served to us had a flat taste. It was unlike the coffee that I used to get at home, or the kind I get in town. Sometimes there is no milk on tha table for the coffee, though sometimes the milk was put in our coffee before it was brought to us. “I couldn't drink the tea served. I tasted it several times. It was bitter. Whenever I tasted it I found it bad. “Tile bread was tolerable. The butte. was fair sometimes, but often bad. I re member for a month prior to June 1 where it was bad all the time. It is pretty fair now. Ju3t before the complaint was made the butter had improved. The butter was rancid, when I say it was bad. It was also garlicky. The bread was a little flat. “The prunes have been better since the petition. Prior to thsj; they were hard and bitter. Now they are larger and bet ter. Only once before we signed the pe tition were they good. “Besides potatoes, we have had for veg etables cucumbers once and beets occa sionally, but I do not eat beets. “The taste of Irish stew we used to get was enough. During the last weeks It has been better. They are putting some potatoes in it now. The meat tn it is not good. Prior to that it was bones, flour and water. "The patients in my charge are reck oned among the most violent in the insti tution. We are served from Schultz’s kitchen There are thirty-one patients and three attendants in No. 8 ward. The patients are men and women, and they receive the same food as the attendants Several of them have told me that their food made them sick. I saw one instance, and two other patients told me of their having been sick. "I never heard any complaint of want of variety of food. For dessert we are given rice and cornstarch pudding. I be lieve they also serve egg custard some times. "For stewed fruit we have been given peaches and prunes. I cannot tell how often we have had prunes." Mr. Backes asked regarding the clean liness of the food and the dishes on which it was served. The witness said that he had been given fried roaches with his fried potatoes. The oatmeal, he said, frequently had black specks In It. He thought that It ought to have been cleaned before It was served. The dishes were clean, as were knives and forks. "Did you ever leave the table hungry?” asked Mr Backes. “Yes, on several occasions." "Did you ever go to town because you were hungry?” "Yes, I often went to town to get a good meal." Oscar M. Culbertson is a young man who until four months ago lived on a farm hear Ailenville. Mifflin county. Pa. He had ne.Ver been-away from home until he came to Trenton. When he ar rived at the hospital he was told by Su pervisor Wyan to report to him anything that he discovered that was not right. Culbertson understood that these in structions that he was only to make these reports when he happened to be in charge of either dining room or hall. Never since he has been at the hospital has he been in charge, so that he has never made any reports. He had talked over the abuses at the hospital with his fellow attendants and joined in the movement to send a com mittee to Dr. Ward, though he was not one of those who went. Culbertson complained that the potatoe served with the skins on never had the rotten portions cut out and since the new .potatoes have bten in use. since the filing of the petition, the grub holes have not been cut from the tubers sent to the ta ble. He would have preferred m.ished pota toes occasionally to a constantly recur ring dish of the boiled article In the garb in which It left Mother Karl It. “We have only had mashed potatoes once since I have been here." no said. ■fThat was at the Fourth of July dinner. "The tomatoes served for Sunday din ners have been Four and slimy. They were very little better than usual last Sunday. They were always stewed and I do not know wheUier they were fresh or Canned. “The cold ham which was frequently served was not cooked through. It was maggoty often. I remember at least live times. X cut the ham and placed the por tions on the plates of the patients. 1 cut the maggoty portions out and put them In a swill barrel. The good portions I grve the patients. I tried to give out only that which was good, hut on several oo casions the patients complained that there were maggots In their portlohs. "X never reported the condition of the meat. The dining-room man stood over me and saw Its condition. Mr. Tanner saw It and Mr. Krnll has seen It since Mr. Tanner left. Among those patients who complained about receiving maggoty ham were Patrick McMahon, Harry Moore and Dominick Shoemaker. They said that they could not eat It nt all, that It was green. The meat was sent Into the dining room and I immediately cut it. I have never kept meat over from one meal to another. I have never seen that done. "The egg* have not once been fit to eat since I have been here. There might have been a few good ones, but I did not see them. The patients frequently com plained to us nurses about them. There are ten tables In our dining room. There are three men In charge. While the pa tients are eating the men see that the patients are eating. “The supervisor Is always In the room when the patients come in and remains while they are eating. Reports are made while the supervisors are in the room.” The question was asked by Mr. Walker whether witness had ever known of re ports having been made by his su periors. "Mr. Tanner told me that he had made complaints." was the reply. "The eggs j were 6uch that I could not stand to do more than open them for the sick pa tients. The odor they emitted was foul. When there were bad eggs there were no good ones tb take their place. I picked out the best of them for the sick pa tients. More than half the eggs were not good. There were ten sick patients who ate their meals in their rooms. There were about 102 in the dining room.” Governor Voorhees wanted to know why this unwholesome food was served the sick patients but the answer he got was not satisfactory. Witness testified that he had never been given a card of printed instructions. The instructions given him 'by Supervisor j Wynn were to keep the patients clean \ and see that they got enough to eat. Mr. 'Backes wished to establish whether j or not the witness had secured his posi- i tion through political influence. He stated that he had written Dr. Ward, applying ; for the position and two weeks later re ceived a letter telling him to come on. "When the ham was bad,” continued the witness, “I knew of no other way of getting any other for the patients or attendants. I called the attention of other attendants to the maggotty ham and we jollied a little over it.” Mr. Backes—“Why did you not report these conditions of which you speak?” “I supposed that the man who was over me knew his business. 1 am simply ex tra hejp it) the dining room.” “Why did you wait until July 17 to bring these things to the attention of Dr. Ward?" “Well, we want something fit to eat for ourselves and for the patients." By th* Governor—“Could you not have done your duty better by reporting to the supervisor the conditions of which you knew?” Unanswered. By Mr. Backes—“Did you not know that the patients were not getting enough to eat?” “I knew that they were not getting the food they ought to get.” Dr. Baldwin addressed the patient, saying:—“I don't think you are a fit per son for an attendant.” William H. Culbertson, a brother of the witness, was an attendant at the hos pital until Monday, when he left without assigning a cause. His name was on the petition sent to Dr. Ward. Witness was sure he had not left to escape the examination. At this juncture the investigation ad journed until Monday morning at 10:46. ST.
