Answer : Yes. (u) Question : You will notice in the LM its and meal counts in the issues column foi May in this hunk "I ti • New I hi ividence p. upi rs, His. ; ()ut Island 200 lbs '" Answer : I have not had the ao ounts since Api il, tin se ounts for Maj have nol been audited by me I Ua\ i not had the aa ounts ince April, I ha\e had lu qui ru s mi those nts, but tiny have m it bi i n si nt oi For this delay the Supi i intendent must p ,. great \ tent he held aceountal le I ivt ing to Ins omission to procure and furnish the v< in I neci ssary to enable the udit to be I near' recent date. There is a vexing lack of (lai ity in the Report w henas the uifoi i nation mecessary cvei ihe disposition and disA lo enable us to do so could tribution of the funds of the onlv have he, n obtained as le result of investigation into the win kings of the Audit 1 )epat I ment, a matter out t he si i ipp of i mi I' nquiry, Some Imiher obsen.iti f this Repott dealing with Paying Patients. I he f. (Mowing pas -aoi s taken from the evident > %  of the Auditor, given before the iiisiitut ion is in (|in stioi'. In £ in' se< tion of this documi is this iibscuiity more noticeable than on pagt s i i and iO(Overdue I Irafts and Auditing of the Accounts). In the I'm mer i he Commission disi ovei J very slat I ling and humiliating f.n t. The goods shipped lo the Hospital had In i n 'cfusid delivery by the Tank on account of the number of drafts for goods already del ivt r< d Commission in September, being in the Bank unpaid. stviw clearly that ;n that date the auditing of the Hospital accounts was considerably in a i i ear. (A) Question .' How often ih ns an audit take plat Answer : The books are supposed to be sent dovt h to me evet y mouth, but it is not invariably done. I may mention that there are times w hen I am too busy I,, (],', || i( an liting Out St ii n : When \ou sav Ihe end of'iQt3 or the beginning..! 'hat theieisan audit eveiy mi 'ii! h, do voit mean that you audit all the accounts, both the cash and the stock ? \nswer : Yes, tincash is audited every month, and the k as far as possible. I so pay sin pi is.' visits to the Hospital very quarter. Question : That is, I suppose, for the purpose of counting the cash and seeing that 1014. the tnnkmg of the weekly p • vnenis on account of th [psth. or inn together with th bi-mon.hly 1 nd m, nililv payment! of the v<'"'ii< employees was transferred by the Superintendent to Inhnson, %  AII > I contInu. d t" perform 1 he--" duties ih n lo the time, with theeicepiion of the icmsinni on which they w*re per. jimeel by the Superintendent in 1 ton. ihe pay sheets for the of the employees are Surely, if anywhere, one looks in this Report f.n cl( ai and convincing evidi nt e i n this extraordinary state of affairs, but we regrt t to infot m our leaders that th* 1 Commission has failed p, || X the blame mi anyone. I he question narrows itself to this logical conclusion— eithei the Superintendent had the money to pay thee drafts and refused or neglected to do so, therefore forcing the Bank to withhold delivery, or he did not have the money and was therefore unable to make payment. If the first position is right then there is a graver change nst the Superintendent than is advanced by the Report, but which the r< .ah 1 can only infer—in the other the Superintendent is blameless and the Commission has done that officer an injustice ; •

most glorious for the soldiers of
France. During e:ghteen hours
our soldiers remained exposed
to a deluge of shot and of such
intensity that a veteran olfiicer
who fought in the war of 1870
said it was impossible for hu-
man beings to remain in such a
hell. But our men remained in
it, and it was the enemy who
gave way before their heroic re-

Under this rain of iron from

is this iibscuiity more notice-

Surely, if anywhere, one
looks in this Report f.n cl( ai
and convincing evidi nt e i n
this extraordinary state of af-
fairs, but we regrt t to infot m
our leaders that th*1 Commis-
sion has failed p, ||X the

I he question narrows itself
to this logical conclusion
eithei the Superintendent had
the money to pay thee drafts
and refused or neglected to
do so, therefore forcing the
Bank to withhold delivery,
or he did not have the money
and was therefore unable to
make payment.
If the first position is right
then there is a graver change
nst the Superintendent
than is advanced by the Re-
port, but which the r< .ah 1
can only inferin the other
the Superintendent is blame-
less and the Commission has
done that officer an injustice
