Mr. Alexander thought the effect of
this amendment would be to exclude

and drive them to other States.
Mr. Dancey was satisfied with things
as they were.
Mr. Caldwell said the insane asylum
was originally called and Viras intended
to be an insane asylum, designed for
the curable only. The Legislature, how
ever, never closed the door upon the un
fortunate indigent applicant where ad
mission was possible; now it had been
made compulsory on the Legislature
to provide for all, and the rich and in
fluential had possession of the asylum,
whilst the indigent were cast adrift.
If the intention of the law were carried
out, the incurable would be sent home
to make room for the curable.
Mr. Rylium withdrew his amendment
and provided as a. substitute that the
insane shall be provided for in such
manner as the Legislature may pre
The substitute was rejected and the
bill then passed its several readings by
the constitutional three-fifths majority.

superinduced by overwork and irregular habits.
Its wonderful strengthening and curative proper

good feeling. Ulnce tneul liafe nul hesitated to
