LINCOLN, July 12.-8peclal.)-Oovrnor
Mickey has ordered the. removal of Dr.
Alden and Dr. Nicholson, iuperlntendent
and assistant superintendent of the Norfolk
asylum, and demanded that they give up
their offices and remove from the asylum
building. After carefully Investigating the
evidence taken before the Board of Public
Lands and Buildings, on charges he had
filed against the two men the governor
dissents from the finding of the board and
holds the men are guilty" of Incompetency
and are not the proper persons to have
the management of the Institution.
The gnvernor also directed a letter to th
county attorney of Madison county request
ing him to file changes against the attend
ants of the institution who are said to
have caused the death of the patient,
Shockley, and have the matter Investigated
by the grand Jury.
It was reported In Lincoln this afternoon
that both Dr. Alden and Dr. Nicholson" had
refused to give up their positions, and what
farther action the governor will take will
not be known until he returns to Lincoln.

Following Is the findings of the governor,
together with a statement of the case. Is
sued by the governor:
The charges against Dr. J. M. Alden,

records of said Institution to be Improperly
kept and has neglected and refused to

while traveling on puhllo business, though
the filing of such receipts is required by
the rules of said asylum and the orders

at Norfolk. Neb., and hereby demand and
require that Dr. Frank 8. Nicholson turn
over to the superintendent all property
In his hands belonging to said asylum anj
Immediately vacate said asylum premise.
Summary of tha rasa.
In disposing of the foregoing case I deem
It proper to make the following observa
As a general proposition It may be stated
that no class of unfortunates appeals more
powerfully to our sympathies than do those
wards of the state whom, by reason of
mental affliction. It has been found neces
sary to temporarily or permanently con
fine within asylum walls. Kvery prompt
ing of humanity suggests that they should
have the best or professional attention
! and that all the surrounding conditions
i Htiould be such as to induce. If possible, the
return of reason, and If not possible then
' the patients should be guaranteed that
' quiet and freedom from excitement best
i calculated to afford them the maximum of
1 comfort during their remaining days.
! Organised society recognises Its duty In this
I direction and the state has been generous
I In providing buildings and equipment for
the care of these unfortunates In accord
ance with the most approved methods. It
I follows that the officers to whom Is con
fided the administration of the asylum
: must be men fully equal to the responsl
1 blltties laid upon them or eNe failure,
j wholly or In part, will be the result, and
the inmates and their friends must suffer
accordingly. The wisest are none too wise,
the kindest are none too kind, and the
most painstaking are none too careful to
have charge of such Institutions.
! As chief executive I feel a keen personal
re?eponslblllty for the efficient conduct of
'all the state reformatories and hospitals,
j The officers In charge are my appointees.
I Their acts are Indirectly chargeable to me
and I, in turn, am answerable to the state.
I It Is my duty under the. laws of the state
to speedily ana effectually remedy any
administrative delinquency which exists in
anv of the institutions and to employ such
means as may be necessary for that pur-
P0."...- " .
I nave iern unaoie iu njuy ngree witn
all of the findings of the Board of Public
Lands and Buildings upon these charges.
The evidence taken by said board In Its
investigation, and other evidence before me.
leads me to conclusions somewhat different
from those reached by tha boars.,
Disagrees With Kind I age af lloara.
I cannot agree with the board In Its find
ings and conclusions that 4be discord that
existed between Dr. Alden and Dr. Nichol
son, did not impair the efficiency of the
management of the Institution and the care
of the Inmates after about April 10. 11.
I agree with the Implied findings of the
board that prior to April 10, 10. this fail
ure of Superintendent Alden to maintain
harmony between himself and his first as
sistant and steward did Impair the efficiency
of his management of the Institution and
Ihe care of tlie patients, but I cannot agree
with the bnaid that such conditions ceaaed
to exist after April 10. l6. On the con
trary. It appears to me that the same con
tinued up to the very time of tne Investiga
tion by the board. Such conditions were
wbollv unnecessary and both Dr. Alden and
Or Nicholson were groasly at fault both
In allowing them to arts and to continue.
Among the duties of the superintendent,
aa provided by section 11. rhaptcr xl, of
the compiled statues, it is required that
be "shall see that the several officers of
the Institution faithfully and diligently dis
charge their respective .duties," and to
that end be Is given full yer ta employ
snd dlerhsrre -stteneiants snd iurse aa
he msy deem necenry. Whre he has
knowledge that sttendsnts have been guiliy
of cruelty to patient It Is his plnln du'y
to discharge them. It Is mnde his Impera
tive duty to "see" snd know thst his
assistants are faithful to their severnl
duties, snd the st.nenient of the board irt
Its findings that the "supe'lntendent had
no knowledge of these scs of violence
until long after they were committed."
even If 1 could agree with such findings,
would be to nie evidence that Dr. Alden Is
not possessed of the requisite vigilance snd
executive ability necessary to the proper
care end protection of the Inmates and the
Interests of the state confided to him. This
criticism applies equally to the assistant
In the matter of the numerous expendi
tures made by him. notablv for travel'ng
expenses. Dr. Alden has fnlied and refused
to file receipts for mnnev drawn by him
from the Institution's cash fund, though
required to do so hy the Biard of Public
t-nnds and Buildings. Such conduct !
represenslble. opens the wny for graft and
is derlmenial to the public Interests.
Governor Mickey returned from Norfolk
and announced he had appointed Dr. Young
of "the Lincoln asylum to be superinten
dent In place of Dr. Alden. Both Alden
and Nicholson, said the governor, refused
to give up their offices. The governor said
he had not determined his future action
In the case.
Refase to Vacate.
NORFOLK. Neb., July 12. -Special Tele
gram.) Governor Mickey appeared at tb,e
Insane asylum today and served written
notice on Superintendent Alden and As
sistant Nicholson that they arc ousted, Dr.
Toung of Lincoln and Dr. H. Douglas
Singer of Omaha being appointed tp suc
ceed. The officials replied In writing' that
they refuse to vacate. Dr. Toung aceom
panled the governor and served written de
mands for the keys and 'office, which 'was
refused. The governor and Dr. Toung re
turned to Lincoln. The matter will proba
bly go to the supreme court. Governor
Mickey did not say what steps he will take
to enforce the ouster. He reiterates former
charges In his findings.
