GATE FOR GUTTERY,

Superintendent of Hospital for In

SLIGHT BALM FOR HIS FE,
(From a Staff Correspondeti"
LINCOLN, March 4. (Special
Telegram.) The temporary suspen
sion of Superintendent W. T. Gut
tery of Norfolk State insane asylum
was made permanent In the findings
of the State Board of Control given
out late this afternoon.
The board In some Instances finds
in favor of Dr. Guttery and In others
It finds that he had given orders and
that attondiints had been Instructed to be
kind nd humane in their treatment of
patients and were forbidden to practice
cruelty upon them and that his orders
nad been carried out jrcncrnlly: that ho
was not. negligent In handling tho small
pox epidemic, but might have been more
efllclent ; obsceno language was not used
about the house and the personality of
the doctor was not Immoral.
However, the board decides that the su
perintendent subjected himself to criticism
by lnjudtcoi.s familiarities with female
attendants and did not use irood Judg
ment in explaining certain things In
elapses of a mixed kind. r-hat ho retained
in the service Immoral attendants, though
his Intentions were not had In doing so;
that he used partiality In promotions and
Ignored department hends In d aline with
subordinates, which tended to promote
discord and Impair discipline In the in
stitution. The boar therefore is "constrained to
find fliat in these respects Dr. AV. I).
Guttery has been Inefficient and incom
petent and that the best interests of the
state require that the suspension hereto
fore ordered be made permanent."
