SOMi: LATE WASUISGIOX SEWS. Special by California Associated Press Philadelphia, March 22. Shock ing stories were told before the chari ties investigatingcoimnitteeon alleged abuses in the blind asylum. Sev eral inmates testified that the food was iusuflicieut. meat, tainted and bread mildewed. Most of the story was of prefect King's practices. Frank "Williams said: "I had only been in the asylum a short time," said David Wykoff, "when King sent for me to come to his room. "When I went there he frightened me and told me if I ever said anything I wonld be terribly punished." The saddest stories are those of Joshua McClintock and Joseph Ganes. He wjis thirteen years old and had been in the asylum but a year when King made a victim of him. For three years he has been a suf ferer. Jos. Ganes is a physical wreck, and his" mind is beginning to totter, and his nervous system seems almost completely unstrung. If he dies King will be responsible for his death, for he was a strong healthy boy when he first came to the asylum. King has been arrested. President Battles testified to-day, and made a vain attempt to explain nway the charges. It is expected that his ar rest will follow. 'King used to try and make the boys curry favor with liira. Some of the boys were punished because they would not lounge about King's room. Oh! the suffering of some of those poor victims. King ruined them men tall', morally and physically." "Eleven boys were the victims of this man. There is evidence that the greatest sufferers were Joshua Mc Clintock, Joseph Ostrander, Welling ton Crassin, Howard W. Wykoff and Joseph W. Ganes. The boys range from 13 to 18 years of age." -More Duty on Tmplate 'oi Desired. Special to The Astorian. "Washington, March 22.
