Should this final peace move fail, -the
probability is that 'the engineers,' fire

No Announcement Made of the Result
of the Last Inquiry Into Numerous ;
; Charges' Against the ; Chief
Official There. '
As an outcome of the long-continued
strife existing at the county poor farm.
-Miss Mary Myers, the superintendent of
nursing, resigned her position yester
day and removed all her effects front the
institution. Dr. Bow lea the . house
physician, has - threatened to resign
twice 'in the last wo weeks but has
been held -atz. the county hospital
through the earnest solicitation of
County Judge Webster - and County
Commissioners Barnes and Ughtner.
Miss Myers is a sister of Jefferson
Myers, president . of the Lewis and
Clark fair, commission. She -has an
enviable record In her : profession of
nurse, and has succeeded In Introducing
aeveral radical reforms at- the county
hospital during ' her . Incumbency aa
superintendent of nursing. Mra Lucy
MOrgsn, Who is highly recommended by
the city "board of charities, has been
chosen her successor.. .. .
Second to steslga.
This makes the second resignation as
the resident head of the oounty hospital
sines J. K. Courtney has Deen superin
tendent of the poor farm. Mies K. M.
Shepherd occupied the position for more
than a year but clashed with Courtney
so frequently' that she refused to re
main g, the institution.
'- Miss - Myers was appointed " head
nurse by that county court about mine
months ago. She' found a It airs In a
chaotic state arid immediately set about
Instituting reforms, with the approval
of Dr. E. P. Geary, the county physician.
She clashed with Courtney, frequently
sad several attaches resigned on ac
count of the- trouble. , Finally Miss My
ers Informed the county court that she
could not succeed In her plans as long
is Courtney was allowed to have charge
of the hospital a , well as, the poor
farm. The ' court hesitsted and Miss
M yerar res brhed. ' This sot dif not leak
out until a few weeks ago, when It was
recounted In The Journal In connection
with recent troubles at the Institution.
. Courtney's Vows 'lessened.
In. order to .retain Miss Myers the
county court took away the entire man
agament of. hospital affairs from Court
ney. That the supplies needed by the
hospital might be secured without mo
tion, a rule was adopted that Courtney
should furnish whatever should, be 'de
manded on a requisition signed by Dr.
deary and Mlss'Myers, who was made
superintendent of nursing. -
- This seemed to accentuate the bitter
feeling engendered between . the em
ployes of the two county Institutions
rather than to decrease It thou ah It en
abled Miss Myers to make a number of
needed reforms In " her - department.
Finally other complaints began to come
in against Courtney...
In the lest 'three months more than to
charges of browbeating inmates of the
poor, farm. Interfering with the Hospital
management, ejecting sick men. using
pro. fan language, la . the . presence- of
women nurses and allowing favorites
unwonted privileges havei keen 'lodged
with the county court sgalnst tha super
intendent of the poor farm. '
.. ... OraaA Jury ZnTertigates. C
- The mattar wss taken up by tha last
county grand Jury. Courtney appeared
before that body on the last day of Its
session. He ' blamed Dr. Geary. The
Jury visited the poor farm and made a
oursory lavestlgation. The members of
the Jury yln their official report spoke
In favor Lt the system of conducting the
hospital and the poor farm under sep
arate managements. .
Shortly after the grand Jury finished
its labors and was discharged by Cir
cuit Judge Cleland a demand was made
by- Courtney that the county court In
vestigate the charges sgalnst him. So
much business had accumulated, how
ever,, that the court' reuld not take the
matter up Immediately. In the mean
time . more trouble followed. W. U.
Wlllisms, a nurse, collided with Court
ney and resigned. His cause waa
ehatnploned - by Miss Myers,, and - so
much bitterness resulted that when
Williams visited the hospital he was
forbidden by 'Courtney . to come on the
grounda - Williams learned from the
proper authority that Courtney had no
right to forbid anybody going to a pub-
Ire- Institution and returned to the
hospital. . - . . '? .
' - v Mieaoe as xnreaasnea. ,
' He waa met by Coartney and two In
mates, and. It Is asserted, was threat
ened with violence If he did not stay
sway. - The language used waa so loud
that the .women nurses tnrew . up the
hospital windows and looked out to see
what waa' the trouble. At that time
Miss Myers came to the city and made
a fresh complaint to the oounty court
regarding the language, she aays Court
ney used at that time. Miss Arnold, ons
of the nurses, resigned her position. '
Then sn Investlgstlon was made by
the county court-' The members went
to the poor farm and gathered what in
formation they -could. The result of
thslr visit haa not been announced, but
no definite actio haa yet been taken.
Believing that Courtney would remain
as superintendent Miss Myers packed
her effects and left the hospital yes
terday. . She was given a two weeks'
vacstlori under pay by the court but
Informed the court that she did not In
tend to return. I
