and Land Commissioner Eaton returned
from Norfolk this morning after spending
yesterday at the Insane hospital, taking
evidence In the charges against Dr. AJden

Mickey on the stand before listening to
the arguments of the attorneys in the case,
but this likely will not he done until after
the members get copies of the testimony

While members of the board will make
no official statements It appears Superin
tendent Alden will not come in for much
censure for his conduct of the Institution.
Whether the board will recommend that
Alden and Nicholson get out of the Insti
tution la another question. The stories of
the witnesses have been so conflicting that
it Is a question of veracity and some mem
bers of the board are Inclined to believe
there has been no more 111 treatment of
Inmater, at the Norfolk asylum than at
any other Institution of the same character
anywhere. Besides, the attendants who
are charged with cruelty, or nearly- alt of
them, are no longer In the employ of the
asylum. Ellis, against whom moat of the
charges of cruelty have been directed, is
employed as gardener-and has no super
vision over the inmates. '
Members of the board are Inclined to
the belief "Ur. Alden has shown a lack of
backbone for not exercising more authority
over employes supposed.. to. b under hi
control and the evidence hah' also shown
the members that harmony is entirely ab
sent between Superlptejadtuit Alden and JJr.
