'floor was a common condition. - There were
.some dirty and som clesn rooms, but a

'the impression that sanitation waa not a

that these rooms wer not cleaned?"

In th boning room Mr. Nelll said h

Issue with Mr. Wilson's statement yester
day. On Instance he remembered Speci
fically In the Nelson Morris house. H
saw one of th men who had ?ur finished
his boning, walk over the dirt on. th floor
to a pll of meat on- the floor, climb on
to the pile with his feet,' knee and hands,
pick up a piece and throw It fifteen feet
on th floor to his bench and a the dinner
signal aounded at that time he saw men'
'climb upon their tables, get 'their lunches
and U. down on .their. . tables . to . eat. , . This,
he said, waa directly under- th y -of the'
superintendent.- ? . '"':"'" -,'

The slipping of a hog. Into a .privy was
made the subject of a colloquy between
the witness and Representative Brook of
Colorado. ' .
Mrr Nelll. said he saw. the .hog fall and
Identified a picture of the. privy, the hog
was put up on the rack and he believed the
hog was. never cleaned. ,' ... .,. ,'
.Chairman Wadsworth persisted that the
witness might "believe" .the hog was not
cleaned, but he did not' "know" it.
At this point Mr- Wllso.i waa allowed to
state that there were men scraping and
cleaning th hog and that none was al
lowed In the cooling .room that was not
perfectly clean. ' ' "' ' "
"This wss pot a case .for scraping; It was
one for cleaning with an antiseptic fluid."

"Oh, well, there Is a difference between
belief s.nd knowledge," said Mr. Lorimer.
"Well, I know. It." replied Mr. Nelll,
- "Did you examine them?"
"I observed them."
"You aay other diseased persona also;
what other diseases?"
"I am not willing to state." r
"Well, doctor," said Mr. Lorimer,. "you
have made these statements to the world
In a report which the president has sent
to us, and which has done Incalculable In
Jury to this Industry and we want to know
the lacta." '
"I have mad this report and am" willing
to stand on 4t," replied Mr. Nelll. "There
wer smells of medicine on- these men -that
you get In dlftpensorles for certain diseases."
Mr, .Nelll here asked permission to. make
a. st'atatjint..41 -said that l was six
weeks, ago. that, he was in Chicago, He
saw "hundreds, 6f thing that did. no.t go
li lo; ihls. repoct.' As , to , the .' rubWaU t ha t
went Into the meat, he did not specify
L'riRbblsh, anali.wubbish. a piece of rope.'' '
"I saw rubbish' go into that meat and
said. so." As 4o tuberculosis, he hid. roade
observations and also had Interviewed
physicians who had told Mm -the , work
tended to produce that disease. .
estl f Morality.
A to the tendency of the work' In the
packing houses' to lower the moral,.. Mr.
Nelll said he believed that this la tb cae.
"As an Instance," he said, "a young girl
It or 17 year old had to walk across. a long
room filled with men to go Into a water
.closet this does not tend to morality, espe-
) daily when some of. those men are of the
lowest type I will not ay tbe worker
are Immoral.",.-
When Mr. Lorimer asked the witness If
he had any complaint to make as to his
treatment as a witness, Mr. Nelll replied
that the treatment of the withes (Mr.
Wilson) yesterday by certain members of
the-'committee and the treatment of him
self today by the same members was strik
ingly Different, especially when the testi
mony of Mr. Wilson tended to raise a di
rect question of veracity between himself
and Mr. Reynolds and Mr. Wilson.
"That's Just what I think,' too," asserted
Representative Lamb (Va ), warmly.
Mr. Nelll denied that the girls sit down.
"They may 'have permission, but there is
nothing for them lu alt on," lie aasertad.
He also referred to a room for girl workers
which was poorly ventilated.
' "Did you have any objection to the man
ner In which the meat was handled In this
loom'.''' asked Mr. Lorimer.
"T must say." after a pause," replied Mr.
Nelll, "that I was so Interested In ob
serving th condition of the workers In
that room that 1 did not take nolle of the
Mr. Nelll commended the government In-
! apectlun, but would nut commit himself
on the stat Inspection.
I It as a mistake -to state, as' Mr. Wll-
sou did yesterday, be said, that the pack-
Ing houses' are open to (lie public. He
J then described the Hog sticking ,' process
! inil Mtttri ''Orta''m&n -l(..L-l.. '!,.... aa
nearly as clean us 1 am, another waa cov
ered with blood.'' He describe! one room
where girls were packing dried' beef In
which the girls looked we! and clean. The
fault In this room, and this applied al
most universally, was that the wster closet
ventilated into the room. The closets were
j flushed automatically.
Every suggestion made to correct the
"absolutely brutal indifference" with which
th employes, especially the young girls
wer treated, be said, was met by the
statement, "Oh, they don't mind that."
Th committee then adjourned until 10:30
o'clock tomorrow.

Munger of the United State court In

Indian, wa selected .as the defendant and
Thomas L. Sloan Is his attorney. .The
stlpulatlona were made yesterday and the
Jury practically Instructed to find for th
government whose' Interests ar cared for
by District Attorney Goes. Mr. Sloan will
appeal lo the circuit- court of appeals and
if Its decision is adverse to his cause, will

Trior to th Brewer decision, which. In
brief, held an Indian who had . taken up

with relation to liquor or anything else,

white man who supplied th Indian with
liquor when a case of bootlegging cam up.
Now th Indian mho la a cltlsen also Is
piosecuted or Is subject to prosecution. In
th vase at hand Hallowell, It Is alleged
and the government claims to hav proven

reservation, Intending to take it ham for
his own consumption. But h gave Bf, It

' NORFOLK, Neb.. June 7. (Special Tele
gram.) A net of hearsay mas brought out
In the hearing of the charge against Dr.
Alden. superintendent of the Insane , hos
pital before the State Board of Public Lands
and Buildings today. The charges preferred
j by Governor Mickey were practically based
on letter written to him by Dr. Frank
Nicholson assistant, superintendent.!. In
which 'Nicholson charged persecution of
himself; a- rht rt YninruleV vulger language
by r. -and Mrs' Alden:' three"' Inmates''
deathe ' flue to "brutality, drunkenness
among employe and wanton cruelty. On
the stand today Dr. Nicholson admitted that
he had no personal knowledge to substan
tiate a single Item contained In his letters.
He said ' that he had merely gathered up
hearsay at the request of Governor Mickey,
who asked him to write what he could find
oat regarding the alleged mismanagement.
' Dr. Nicholson In his letter to Governor
Mickey said Mrs. Alden used language that
'would bring the blush or shame to Inno
cent cheeks. On the stand, though, the
tat board, Alden' attorneys and Nichol
son's own attorney Insisted upon hearing
this language Dr. Nicholson refused to
quote th alleged language. Nicholson salt!
that by "riot of misrule" he meant that
occasionally an attendant went to town
without leave, admitted that there were no
printed rule at that time and said there
never had been misrule In the Institution.
in his letter Nicholson - stated Milton
Shockley. an inmate, . died from injurler
received In a fight and that he was poked
tvith a broomstick by an attendant until
lis bled. On the stand he admitted that
th broomstick report man hearsay and
that h oould not verify It. He said he
could not state from an examination uf
the patient that he had been Jabbed and
that he never heard a rumor regarding the
broomxtlck until months after the Inmate
was dead. He said, and other testimony
corroborated the statement, that 8hoikley
and another patient fought over a card
game December 17. Several attendants
pinned Slilckley to the floor to restrain
Mm. as he weighed i!do pounds, was over
six feet high and unusually powerful. All
declared that no more violence mas used
than wa sabsolutely necessary to restrain
htm end protect their own lives. Dr.
Alden took off the patient who mas beating
Shockley. Shockley was rational till he
died nine days after and he never men
tioned being Jabbed with a broomstick nor
blamed any one but the patient. Cerebral
hemorrhage mas assigned on the record
by Nicholson as th cause of death and
there was no thought of covering up any
thing. In his letter NuliuUon aald. "I know
several patients mho mere struck by at
tendants' flats." On the stand he said.
"I knom- of no patients struck by attend
ants' fists. I heard Indirectly of one such
rumor." Nicholson said that there la now
such a feeling of goodfellcwship between
him and Dr. Alden that things are running
smoothly. Nicholson In his letter, said
patients suffered from the lark of heat.
Th dally record shorn s but one instance
where the' temperature waa belom CO and
generall mas 7u or over. He said Inmates
wer well fed and clothed and Dr. Alden
had been dllllgent Ip organising th In
stitution and its management and that It
is, h believes, the best managed Institu
tion of the kind In existence.
He charged drunkenness In his letter,
but declared on the stand he knew of but
on case. It mas shom-n that In the Shock
ley fight an attendant kicked Shockley
whll h waa down, but th attendant
waa then dated by a blow from Shockley.
Nothing waa produced to aubatantlat
rumors that, cruelty led to the deaths of
