LINCOLN. Dec. 12. (Special.) Dr. Xames
L. Greene, formerly superintendent of the
Insane asylum here, accompanied by Mrs.
Greene. Is visiting friends In Lincoln. They
will leave Tuesday and before going back
to Illinois Dr. Greene may go to Ofcieola
and e former Governor Mickey.
Dr. Greene Is now superintendent of an
Illinois asylum located at Kankakee and
lie expressed himself as being will pleased
with, the place, though his heart still lln
fr around Nebraska and Lincoln.
"I secured from the legislature an ap
propriation of $.10,000," said Dr. Greene,
"with which to establish a laboratory In
which to study diseases of the nrtnd. This
laboratory la for the benefit of the entire
state and Is the central workshop of all
the Insane Institutions. All of the asylum
physicians of the various Institutions took
a course In this laboratory. Then Dr.
Singer, who was formerly at Norfolk, visits
each of the Institutions in turn and glvea
lectures. lie remains at each about two
weeks. All of the time we have two of the
employes of an Institution at work In the
laboratory for a short period. Then these
two give way to others and thus each
member of the medical staff secures the
benefit of the training.
"We give employment to a physician
when lie comes to us with gilt-edged en
dorsements, lie becomes an interne. Then
by merit he Is promoted to a Junior assist
ant physician, then senior assistant, and
finally physician In charge. All employ
ment Is solely on merit.
"I notice that Dr. Young has recom
mended the establishment ot a central lab
oratory, and 1 hope the Nebraska legisla
ture will follow that recommendation. It Is
a good one.
"Nebraska should not change the heads
of Its asylums every time an administration
changes. It Is bad for the wards of the
state. The physicians should be selected
and kept solely under the merit system."
Barnes MoTea to Lincoln.
Judge John B. Barnes of the supreme
court has removed with his family to Lin
