THE 6RISS0M ifiUESTISATIOH. Dr. Grisspm's Testimon ji Concluded. Other Witnesses cUlled. The board of directors rivamed their session, yesterday afterni-L; at four o clock. The first step after re-assembling was to call the following -witnesses A A. A. ' Holton, O. S. Cause, J. BL Mflfs, N. C. Jarrell and W. H. Ragan, ail of Guil ford county. All testified that they knew Miss Nora Burchi, and that ier character was excellent that of a latly. 3 All testified", on criexamin&tiontihkt-. they had not i kn& n much'bt h'eV since she came to th asylum; that they had never heard an vthincr ao-ainAt her The direct examination of Dr. Gxis som by Gov. Jarvis fas then renamed; He asked why; Dr. Grissom ad not taktn steps to report Dr.; Rogers to the board of directors. Coi.;AVaddell 6b jected to the question. The board de cided tp allow the fpKsstion. i Dr. Grissom aid : The friendship between Dr. B6gersand myself was cor dial up to'tle time f its interruption. He was my'inedical student. His father was my V'arm personal friend. I recom mended Dr. Rogers at his graduation for the place he holds. I had made him my confidential secretary. When the estrangement commenced, it was to me exceedingly' painful. I tried to avoid an open rupture. I had endorsed him for a position elsewhere. I thought that his connection with this institution would not be protracted. In addition to this, I thought it was in my power to circumvent the result of this estrange ment.. I did hot wish the estrangement . between us to cause any trouble to the institution or to the public. I preferred to wait till we could separate peaceably and without an open rupture. A th e next election of oflicers j I was advised by a member of the board of directors not to make achan .bui-lpwait an see if the differences could not be heme I did this in the jinterest of peace, and left the whole matter to the board. For. a time there seemed to be no trouble. Our official relations were intact till the trouble at the June meeting of the exec utive committee of the board. Colonel Waddell took the witness on . cross-examination. Dr. Grissom said: The report of Dr. Rogers, yesterday referred to, on the . subject of mechan ical restraint, was made in the summer of 1884. Dr. Rogers came here about September, 1883. He came in a few months after his graduation. ' Col.1 Waddell asked : Did Dr. Rogers graduate in the. spring: of 1883, come here in Septemoer, 1883, and make the official report in June, 1884 ? v Dr. Grissom answered: I think that is so. ; . ' " ' "f ' Dr. Grissom was then discharged. - .Mrs. V. C. Jones was 'then sworn and examined by Mr. Cooke. She lived in Granville county. She was at the insti tution eighteen years as attendant and chief attendant, y Capt. Cooke asked what Dr. Grissom's bearing to the pa tients was according to her observation. Mrs. Jones answered that he , treated them kindly. She never saw any mis treatment or cruelty bh. his part toward the patients. I saw him often with the patients. My duty very frequently brought me in contact with him when he was with the patients. . Strapping was used when patients were violent or abusive to themselves or- other persons. They were released twice or three times a day. I have known strapping to prove beneficial to patients. I knew Mrs. Lowther. She was restrained as much as two days.. She was released twice a day. I saw her after she was released. She took a bath. She lived only two or three hours. There was no evidence of -any injury to her from the restraint. . I knew Miss Burch. I never saw improp er relations bet ween Dr. Grissom and Miss Burch.- I knew Miss Ella Ed wards. Dr. Grissom's conduct to her was that of a gentleman. I never knew his conduct to her to be otherwise. ! Col. Waddell took the witness on cross examination. She knew Mrs. Gaskins to be strapped as much as a day. When patients were released when strapped it was for an hour or a half hour. Mrs. Gaskins had sores on her limbs when she came here. I suppose the straps irritated them. Mrs. Lowther was a violent patient. I do not know how long she was restrained, Mr. R. H. Whitaker was" sworn and examined by Mr. A. W. Haywood. He said he was editor of the Spirit of the Age and a minister of the gospel. He met, Miss Etl wards on the train. It was in February or March,. 1888. I had taken my seat on the cars and was read ing when a lady, attended by a colomd cama in v, taping. ' x lnirouucea yself and asked what was the trouble. She said she had heard that her mother was very ill. - She! said she had been at the Insane Asylum as an attendant. She said 1 she liked the asylum very much indeed. I soon .concluded that part of her grief wlas because of leaving the asylum. I conversed with her about Dr. Grissom, and the impression made upon me was that Dr. Grissom made an excellent superintendent. , She told me that it was rarely the case that restraints, were used. She said she ex pected to return, whether her mother died or' not. She spoke in very high terms of Dr. "Grissom. She frequently alluded to Dr. Rogers, and I intimated that I thought she and the Doctor were sweethearts. She made no reply except to smile. She did not intimate or state that Dr. Grissom had ever treated her improperly in any manner,' shape, or form. ' ' .- The; board then adjourned till this morning at 9:30 o'clock. New. Advertisements.

Some close observer has written that a neat shoe is one-half the make-up of a faultless outfit. It seems that Heller Bros, hold to this view; for if any thing1 js certain, it is that they keep the neatest, and most complete line of foot wear in the State, in one of the prettiest stores in the South- Just see them.

Factory prices guaranteed. - . State Board of Agriculture. ' 'the State Board of . Agriculture met here this morning. Most of the day's session has been consumed in th.e con sideration pf the reports of the oflicers. One matter of importance before the board: was an application from the State agricultural 8cciety for an appropriation in favor of thfe hext'Fair. The board will meet in joint 'session to-morrow with the trustees of the Col lege of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts for the purpose of electing a faculty for the institution. TRINITY The Trustees De Raleigh By a Conference .'. the The following t by the Calx this "The trustees o accepted Raleigh' cided by a vote o college to that citj The board of tr boro yesterdsj-' preseut-" moval was very spirited and lasted nearly ' all through the day. Messrs. Robbins and Leach, of the board, led the opposition. Some of the members who weijo hot present' sent.proxys, and there was a considerable debate as to whether; these should bo admitted or not; those opposed to removsl being in favor of their, admission. They were finally refused' by u vote of 15 to 12. Thit was considered as something of a test vote, showing the party, in frfvor of removal to be some what the stronger. In tbe morning session, Mr. Robbins led the opposition in a speech of about one hour and a half. He was supported in the evening by Mr. Leach, who spoke throe hours and forty-five minutes against . the re moval of the college. The board then adjourned to a night session, when Prof. J. F. Crowell, of the college, addressed the board in favor of the removal. There was more discussion and when the vote was taken at a late hour it was 18 to 11 in favor of accepting Raleigh's proposition. The members of tho board from Raleigh who were present were Revs. W. S. Black and F, " L. Reid and Mr. R. T. Gray. Mr. Gray was summoned from the session by a telegram, but before leaving, paired with. Judge Montgomery, who was of the opposition party. "i 1 1 ii ir ii v i I r i .collecre a site and 820.500 in cash rr- should come here. ' ' ' 'OS.'' Before any action toward removal be taken, the matter must come ' before the annual State Conference of the M. E. Church South. There is no appre hension on the part of most of the board and those who were present .that it will not be approved.- Quite a number of the alumni of the college' attended the meeting and wero much interested in the proceedings. It can-be safely gathered from these and others, that the opposition was largely local, as was naturally expected. THE COTTON FACTORY". Location Chosen Election, of Presi - ' dent. ' i' ' The Directors of the cotton factory met yesterday evening and '.transacted some ' important business. A fite for the factory was chosen and purchased; the lame being six acres of land just north of the new round house at ( the Raleigh and Gaston railroad shops. It was purchased for $4,500 from Mr. P. C. Cameron, who took factory stock m payment for the purchase money. ' Mr. Julius Lewis was elected . presi dent of the mills, and Mr. Jno. H. Winder was elected vice-president. Mr. C.
