Many are expressing thcii willingness
to corroborate these statements if some
iropor committee is selected to examine
lie witnesses. The effect of the publica
tion of the statements of these persons
who know of the home affairs will

: < > visit the homo and liml everything in
ipplo pie order. Such' a visitation and
such a tintling will not , however , satisfy
( In ; public , in view of the claims of M >
many that for much of tlin time since Iho
liomb was started lhe.ro has been tilth ,
poor and insullielent fooil , and harsh
treatment of children. The children of
the lioiiiu have been taken out to ritlo
since the sirticlu appeared in the Hr.i : ,
and tinre : will doubtless bo no cause for
complaint now , oven if such caus ' have
oxistfd up to now. How long tnc bettor
condition of all'airs will contlnui ; is a
harder question to answer. The public
will nut bo satisfied until the truth or
falsity ot the charges made as to the past
history of thn institution is established.
Many new details sire coming to the
Itr.i : in support of the statements already
made. If Mr. Lemon had declared to the
public that thu children were not having
enough to eat , that tlioy were not being
properly cared for , that they had to sloop
many in a bed , that they were troubled
with vermin , and suffering from oilier
trouble- * , and all because the children
ki-pt crowding into the home faster than
they could liml homes for them , sind that
sill this was due to a lack of means lhc
public might respond with more contri
butions , and In ; nfTght be relieved from
responsibility largc.lv. Hut he declares
that the children arc being well cared
for and educated. Here are his utter
ances in his own paper : "It docs seem
thsitin days of great need the store of
provisions does not properly give out.
\ \ hen we have been unable to buy wo
have all had plenty and to spare olV of a
store of provisions that refused to dimin
ish in accordance with natural law. Our
children sire hearty and happy and have
received spiritual and mental training
far in advance of all public institutions
as freely admitted by sill who have
visited here. "
It seems , therefore , that Mr. Lemon
deems the provisions plenty and to spare ,
and tins education bettor than that of any
Knowing that Dr. A. _ .7. _ Cook , a well
known physician of this city , had served
as physician of the homo for some time ,
the HII : man made inquiries of him yes
terday as to what ho know of the condi
tion of affairs there.
"How long were yon the attending
physician of the home , doctor ? "
"From soon after its organization
until I tendered my resignation last Octo
ber. 1 think about two years. "
"Was it a salaried office ? "
"No , sir ; simply a donation to the
liomo. The lirst year I furnished med
icines free , as well as trcatmeat , and after
that I simply furnished my professional
services free. "
"What led you to sever your connec
tion with the institution ? "
"I considered the management bad ,
and the amount of fault found with the
Homo by the general public led rue to
believe that I had bettor sever my con
nection with the institution. "
"Was this separation a friendly ono ? "
"Yes ; and the manager in accepting it
gave mo a very nice letter of thanks for
my services. "
"How frequently did you visit the
Homo during these two years ? "
"Sometimes every day for a week or
ton days in succession , and probably
on an average once or twice a
week during my whole term of
service there , I frequently had bad cases
requiring my attention twice a day. "
"During those visitations did you notice
any causes for these complaints which
you say you hail hoard from the general
public aiid. if so , what were they ? "
" 1 thought 1 did. In the lirst place ,
the location itself is not lit for such a
Home. The ground is too low , and in
clined to be marshy. When I took charge
of it there was water standing on the lot
itself sind mud and water in the base
ment. I ordered dry oarlh thrown into
the collar and the timbers ot the lloor
whitewashed , etc. 1 found the stagnant
water from the collar seeping through
into the well , which stood about six feet
distant. The drinking water was con
taminated. 1 also found slop and dish
water thrown indiscriminately about the
well , without any regard to the welfare
of those compelled to drink this
well-water. This causa of com
plaint was occasionally remedied
for a short time , but every now
and them 1 found that slops wore being
thrown out sis before. The homo being
recently established , it was inadequate to
tlio accommodations. The air was neces
sarily impure , on account of tlio crowded
condition of tlio quarters. Under the
lirst matron , Airs Roekufellow , it was
conducted as well as it was possible to do ,
as she was overtaxed and her facilities
cramped. She always aimed to keep the
children clean and care for them , but she
was often interfered with by the fault
finding and tyrannical overbearing , of
the manager. "
"At the time of your resignation , last
fall , wore tint sanitary conditions and
surroundings much impiovcd from what
you originallv found thorn ? "
"No , sir. 1 consider thorn worse in
fact , owing to thu violation of my orders
and constant neglect to carry out sugges
tions for improvements. This was really
why 1 did not care to bo longur hold re
sponsible for thu health of the inmates , 1
do not blame the matrons for this condi
tion of affairs , as they had been over
worked and overburdened , but the man
ager should certainly have teen that
these changes were Hindu , "
"What do you know about the food ? "
"Thu lirst year 1 tliiui ; thuro was an
abundance , and moderately well pre
pared Subsequently it became bad in
quality and insuHicicnt in quantity , Cof-
li.-o and lea were .shut oil' , and no milk
except for a few of the little ones. Tlio
diet was mainly coinmcal mush , sorghum
molasses and an inferior quality of po
tatoes , Thu broad was about the
only thing that was good , and
thcro was not enough of that.
When bakers' broaii run snort , corn meal
mush and corn bread ot an inferior
quality was used. The potatoes were
generally poor , and cooked and served
with the peelings on frequently. No
meat was allowed except occasionally ,
and in small quantities. The manager
insisted on a vegetable diet almost exclu
sively , potatoes being thu chief vegetable ,
occasionally a few cabbage and turnip ,
but only occasionally/ '
"From what you observed during the
last year of your stay , do you , as a physi
cian , consider that the children luul a
proper amount of suitable food ? "
"No , 1 do not. "
"How about the cleanliness of the home
and children ? "
" 1 usually found thorn in a filthy conj
dition. Thcro were no facilities for
bathing , except perhaps in a tub or pail.
f the matron found time to give
; licm an occasional ablution , and then
here wa no soft water , well water being
used. Portions of the bedding seemed
clean at times , but the bedding for the
little ones was very lilthy at times , and
the quarter * not suitable * 1 did not con
sider the bedding nor the quarters healthy
for tlio inmates. Several would bo hud
dled in one bed , which was far from
healthy in those clo c , badly ventilated
rooms. 1 was told by the older Inniatei
of the homo that there were bed bugs and
body lice there , but I did not investigate
thls'branch of the subject. "
"How about the heating In winter ? "
"In the winter they had a stove in the
parlor and a cook stove in the kitchen.
They had about thirty or thirty-live In
mates , and ( hey were terribly crowded ,
but I think the heat was ample , but the
ventilation was very bad. "
"Doyou think that sickness was caused
by this lack of proper food , proper venti
lation and proper careV"
"I certainly do. I of Inn wondered
that there was not more. 1 usually had
the advantage of being called In right
in the inception of any sickness and by
frequently visiting the homo , and watch
ing closely , was able to ward oll'any special
cial epidemic. The scarlet fever broke
out once I hero , but 1 managed to stop it.
Constant vigilance was required to com
bat disease in the face of these unfavora
ble sanitary conditions. "
"Where were the bit-k ones taken
care of ? "
"Generally in the parlor , which is
about 12\14 , and an adjoining bud room ,
which was very small. 1 have seen sis
many as live or six lying in those two
rooms at ono time , all sick. Tlio o quar
ters were not suitable , but were the best
that were provided. "
"Wore there any deaths at the home ? "
"There were none during my term as
physician , except Airs. Ivlnsoy's child
which was put to sleep as usual , appar
ently well , and an hour later was found
"Doctor , you have visited poor houses ,
haven't you ? "
"Why , certainly. "
"Well , now. do you consider these
children sis being cared for as well in Ibis
Christian homo as they would bo in the
average poor house ? "
"I have visited a good many pool-
houses which are better , and the inmates
better cared for , Mills county , for in
stance. Another trouble that I found ,
was that the manager would never advise
with mo concerning the arrangements at
the home , and everything that was done
for thu bettering * of the condition of
affairs hail to bo almost forced , and in the
face of frequent opposition on his part. "

The trial of D J. Million on the
charge of embezzling from the money
loancr Crofts , his employer , bsis resulted
in his acquittal. The evidence looked
rather dark for Mullen when stated for
the prosecution , and showed that he had
been from time to time imiKing fictitious
loans and pocketing the money. The de
fense claimed that these loans were not
fictitious , but that Mullen had been mis
led , lending money to parties who were
worthless perhaps , but that he had not *
deliberately caused these losses , and that
they were such as might naturally occur
in any such business. The sentiments of
many who hoard the evidence was rather
in favor of Mullen , they feeling that
Crofts was pursuing methods as a money
loancr which did not entitle him to much
sympathy , and that if Mullen did not
show all the business rectitude and care
fulness which ho should , yet the way in
which the business was conducted by
Crofts was such that it was not so bail
after all for Mullen. Ho has been sent
forth witli his record made clean by a
formal acquittal , and again enters the
employ of C. F. Uecd & Co. , of Omaha ,
who , like others of his friends , evidently
have faith in him.

An Honor to Council RlufTW.
At the recent dedication of the supreme
court chambers at DCS Moincs , Mr. J. N.
Baldwin of this city was sis.signed the
duty of representing the bar of the entire
state. The honor was a high ono to con
fer upon so young a member of the bar ,
but it was more than si personal tribute ,
it being a recognition of Council Hind's ,
of which the citizens as well as the mem
bers of tlio bar well feel proud. The
manner in which Mr. Baldwin tilled the
position assigned him on this important
occasion , and the many words of praise
hoard on all sides add to the honors won
by him and giyo occasion for Council
Bluffs to take to itself no little laurels for
being able to produce so worthy a repre
sentative on such a state occasion. The
speech of Mr. Baldwin is pronounced by
all to have been a truly eloquent and fin
ished one , and even the Register , which
is rather slow about sounding the praises
of any , and especially those from western
Iowa , publishes his address in full , and
