St. Asaph Workhouse Nurs= mg Question. VICOROUS DISCUSSION: ANOTHER APPOINTMENT TO BE MADE. The question of the staffing of the new work- house infirmary was again discussed with much warmth at last Friday's meeting of the St. Asaph Board of (Guardians, Mr T. Howes Roberta (chair- man) presiding. The Medical Officer (Dr. Henry Lloyd) reported as follows Seeing that a discussion is to take place to-morrow as to the necessity for the appoint- ment of an additional nurse, I have thought it ad- visable, as medical officer, to report as to what has taken place during the last fortnight. A man was brought into the house in an unconscious state, and on the following day he died. The man, I may state, had the unremitting attention of the nurse from the time he was brought in until noon on the following day. During this time there were other serious cases to attend to" two other women requir- ed constant attention, so that it was impossible for the nurse to attend to all the cases which we had in the house. The nurse has had often to be on duty for 24 hours at a time, which is too much to expect of her. I strongly recommend the Board to appoint an additional nurse to assist the present one and to take night duty alternately. I have always been of the opinion that we are understaff- ed as regards the nursing, and now that the addi- tional and extensive hospital has been added, it is more than ever necessary to provide assistance (hear, hear). Mr John Williams, chairman of the Visiting Committee, in proposing that an additional nurse for the new infirmary be advertised for, said that the Medical Officer's report and the letter from the Local Government Board Inspector (Mr Bircham) should be quite sufficient for them to decide that an additiollal nurse was necessary. It was clear that there were no inmates capable of nursiug, therefore, in the face of all that they had heard, why should they delay making this additional ap- pointment? No doubt they had all heard of the scandbl which had arisen at Bangor owing to neg- lect in the nursing of the invalid poor. He hoped they would have nothing of that sort at St. Asaph. He could not conceive of any opposition to his motion, and he trusted that the matter would be settled without further delay. MrS. Perks, in seconding the motion, said he felt that it was hardly fair to the present staff to ask them to undertake the duties of carrying on such a large additional building as the new infirm- ary (hear, hear). It had been said that the equip- ment of the new infirmary had improved the means of carrying on the Workhouse. That might be so to a certain extent. At the same time they must all be anxious that the poor invalids under their care should have proper attention, and they must be quite aware of the impossibility of one nurse working night and day. There were many cases in the house in which it was impossible for the nurse to look after a patient during the night owing to the attention demanded ofher by a more urgent case. To continue the present state of affairs was more than human)nature could endure, and on that ground alone he strongly urged the ap- pointment of an additional nurse without further delay. Mr 1). Trehearn said he did not object to some assistance being granted to the present nurse. He had taken the trouble to go through the house, and he had ascertained from the nurse that she did not want an assistant nurse—("Hear, hear "and Oh, oh !")—but would be quite satisfied with the help of a ward maid or of even two able-bodied women if she could find such persons in the house. It was therefore extravagant to advertise for a nurse at a salary of £ 25 per annum when they could get the necessary assistance for X12 per annum. He pro- posed that a ward maid be advertised for at a sal- ary of not more than X12 per acnum. Mr Hugh Edwards could corroborate his version of what had taken place between the nurse and himself. Mr John Roberts said that the Medical Officer had lately been granted an increase of salary and still he seemed dissatisfied (" Order, order "') He couid not believe that the duties of the nurse were any heavier now than they were when she was ap- pointed five years ago. Proceeding, he criticised the actions of the Medical Officer, but upon being appealed to by the Cfnirman not to drag the name or the Medical Officei- int;) the discussion he drop- ped the subject. Mr J. Roberts Jones said he did net agree with Mr John Roberts' arguments. The nurse had dis- tinctly led him to suppose that she had not sutri- cient help. There had been three deaths in the house during the past week, and in the case of a man from Rhyl who was ia a state of coma for t-weuiy-four hours the nurse had to attend to him night and day. It was an absolutely physical impoapibUry for one woman to go on like that. The dilf reiice bptwen £ 12, the salary proposed by Mr Trehearn for a ward maid, and £2,), the proposed salary of an assistant nurse, was xeally very little after all. There was oot likely to be much difference in the rations that would be consumed (laughter). The Chairman said that the salaries of all the officers were repaid by the Government—they did n 't come out of the common fuud of the Union. The Vice-chairman (Mr J. Frimaton) said he was ve y sorry to see that there was so much feeling on this matter, and that such bad motives should lave been attributed to anyone who had recom- mended the appointment of an assistant nurse. Was it reasonable to expect a woman to be on duty 24 hours at a stretch (No This was no new tiing at all, for, as the Local Government Board Inspector reminded them in his letter the other week, the late Chairman of the Board, Mr R. Llewelyn Jones, was strongly in favour of an assist- ant nurse being appointed. As to the class of as- sistant, was the person proposed by Mr Trehearn the sort of person to be entrusted with the nursing of very serious cases ? Mr C F. Gunner-No. i The Vice chairman—No. I think W ought to have someone who has had some amount of nursing to CIO. Mr Wm. Jones (with an eye upon the clock)—I don't understand these Rhyl people. They are al- ways on their legs preaching. We have a long agenda to go through at the Rural District Coun- cil meeting (order, order The Vice-chairman—1 have not been on my feet two minute", All lask now is that we should not any longer be so hard and unkind and cruel as has sometimes been the case here. Mr J. Ellis Jones inquired if the number of sick cases in the house was more now than five years ago. The Vice-chairman—The Master has reported that there is an average of from 35 to 40 during the winter months. illr J. Ellis Jones—Is that a greater number as compared with five years ago ? A member-No. Mr Perks—They may not have bsen attended to properly five years ago. After further argument it was decided by a majority to call in the nurse, Miss Hughes, and in reply to the Chairman she stated that she was rather short of help and wanted some assistance. She could do with a ward maid. She was quite willing to do all the nursing. The Vice-chairman—Night and day Miss Hughes-I have done so. Further ques- tioned, she said there was no woman in the house suitable to help her. In the four wards under her charge she had 27 persons. She got a fortnight's holiday every year. '■^Chairman—And y°u work n'ght and day all the other time. Ultimately Mr Trehearn's motion was carried by 16 votes to 12, the division being as follows:- For an assistant nurse £ 25 per annum—The Chairman and Vice-chairman, and Messrs John Pierce, John Williams, J. Ellis Jones, W. H. Hughes. T. Pennant Williams, H. Perks, J. Roberts Jones, Isaac Batho, Hugh Edwards, and Mrs R. Jones. For a probationer at £ 12 per annum —Messrs John Roberts, R Parry, R. Davies, R. E. Griffiths, W. S. Roberts, Bennett Jones, T. Hughes, Owen Rees, Edwin Morgan, Mark Cross, I m. Jones, R. Roberts, J. Evans, David Roberts, D. Trehearn, and John Morris.

St, Asaph (Denbigh) Rural District CounciL MONTHLY MEETING. STRAINED RELATIONS WITH THE MEDICAL OFFICER. The monthly meeting of the above authority was held at St Asaph Workhouse on Friday last, under the chairmanship of Mr Wm Jones, J.P. The Sanitary Condition of Llantitiulas. I The Council discussed at some length reports by the Medical Officer (Dr J Llovd Roberts) and the Sanitary Inspector (Mr E () Evans) upon the condition of Llanddulas, which has been a subject of contention for a long time pust. Mr Bennett Jones held that the improvements which had lately been carried out were a great deal more forward than the Medicil Officer made out. He would like to know how it was 1,11.; t there was such a great difference in the tone of the Sanitary Inspector's report and that of the Medical Officer. The Medical Officer—Because mine is more full. I propose that you ask Dr Whittaker to come and make a report (Oh, no ) Mr Bennett Jones-l hope you will see to it that the County Council get an up-to-date report without delay. The Medical Officer-I will. A letter was read from the Llanddulas Parish Council stating that they were willing to accept the responsibiiiiy tor scavenging in the parish. The Clerk (Mr Charles Grimsley) presented a report showing how other parishes managed in this respect, aud after some discussion thereon the matter was deferred. Various olhsr nutters relating to Llauddulas were dealt with. The Medical Officer. When the question of the appointment of a Medical Officer for the enbuing year came on, Mr Bennett Jones asked—How many public authori- ties does our doctor serve? The Medical Officer-Four in this Union. Mr Bennett Jones-If we re-appoint you, are you willing to llve in the Denbigh rural district or in the adjoining district ? The Medical Otlicer-l can hardly say that. The salary you glve me does not anything like keep me or pay mv house rent, so that I have to scratch a living elsewhere. Mr Bennett Jones—You will find houses cheaper at St Asaph. The Medical Officer—But not so much tinney knocking about. Mr Bennett Jones—What ate the two public bodies you serve besides these two rural districts The Medical Olticer-Aberele and Prestatyn Urban District Councils. further questioned, the Medical Officer enumer- ated the places he had visited in the discharge of his duties to this authority, and stated that if they were willing to kcop him he would come and reside in the district. Mr John Roberts, in proposing t'w re-appoint- ment of Dr Lloyd Roberts for another year, ex- pressed a hope that he aod the Council would get on better than they had dose in the past, other- wise they would have to conslller the question of making some other appointment. Mr Rt Griffith seconded the motiou, and it was carried unanirnomlr. I The Medical Officer thaoked tho Council for his reappointment, and took the opportunity of re- marking that the trouble which had a'isen was not ¡. of his ses-kii'g. It had been brewiug for years and years. If the Council would back him up in the various recommendations he made from time to time, they would get along far more comfortably. He did not wish to do anything more than his duty, and he hoped he had not done so. Mr Bennett Jones V\e feel that you have exaggerated matters, and I understand there is just the same feeling in the other rural district. The Medical Officer— Perhaps I have pushed the Council a littic bit. I gjV3 the Council credit for having done very good work at Llanddulas aod Trefuant. 1 r Bennett Jones Weshall see about that when your annual reports corres out (laughter). The Sanitary Inspector. Mr Mark Cross proposed the reappointment of Mr E 0 Evans as Sanitary Inspector for another year. Mr FvaP^ he remarked, had experienced a great deal ot 'uble during the last twelve months, and had had to carry out some very un- pleasant work. But he had discharged his duties in a most gentlemanly manner. He (Mr Cross) would like to see his salary iucreased by £ 5. Mr Jno Roberts Withdraw, withdraw Mr Bennett Jones seconded the motion, but took exception to the proposer's suggestion re the £ 5. xr ■ t u Mr t0 be very much respected. The unpleasant duties he has had to perform have been enormous, aod I don't think we should be doing anything ou,; the way in voting him an extra £ 5. Mr Bennett Jones Oh, he is very well paid. The Was agreed to without any reference to the i), and Mr Evans cordially thanked the council. « Not a Public Road." A letter was read from the Rhyl Urban District Council calling, at ention t0 atate 0f j]ie r0ad leading to the is° 'on hospital at Towyn. The Surveyor ( r Johu Williams) contended that the road was a Private oae, and no action was taken in the A Lianfair Improvement Scheme.

A Prestatyn Tragedy. DOCTOR FOUND DEAD IN HIS SURGERY. JURYS VERDICT: PROTEST BY THE CORONER. A sensational discovery was made at Pres- tatyn on Friday evening last, Dr. Robert Thomas Davies, a well-known medical practi- tioner, whose connection with the town dates back about ten years, being found dead in his surgery at L'wchaled. Deceased, who was 38 years of age and unmarried, was the youngest son of the late Dr. John Davies, of Cerrig y Druidion, and in adopting his father's profession he also followed in the steps of two of his brothers, the late Dr. John Davies junr, and Dr. H. H. Davies, who carries on the Cerrig y Druidion practice. He followed his professional studies at Glasgow University, where he took the triple degree of M.R.C.P. (Edinburgh), L.R.C.S. (Edinburgh), and L.F.P.8.G. (Glasgow). Prior to settling down at Prestatyn, he practised for some time in South Wales and afterwards in the Holywell district, one of his appointments being in con- nection with the Holywell Dispensary. He was a man of brilliant attainments, and he en- joyed much popularity but despite all that, his career, which has terminated in such a tragic manner, was not altogether a success. The circumstances of his death will best be gathered from the appended report of the in- quest, which was held at Prestatyu Town Hall on Saturday afternoon. The proceedings were conducted by Mr F. Llewelyn Jones, coroner for Flintshire. The jury consisted of the fol- lowing Messrs. A. W. Jones (foreman), Joseph Littler, Thos Hughes, John Williams, R. Richards, David James, M. O'Connor, Geo Parnell, Thos Fenton, Alfred Jones, Daniel Davies, W. P. McDonald, T. H. Jones, and Cornelius Roberts. The first witness called was Dr. Hugh Hughes Davies, Cerrig y Druidion, who stated that he last saw the deceased, his brother, alive in August last, when he appeared to be in good health. In a letter he wrote to witness' daugh- ter about a veek ago he was contemplating going for a voyage. For about six or eight weeks last summer he was in an asylum, from which he was discharged perfectly cured. Wit- ness could not say that deceased had been drinking heavily of late. From what he had been told such was not the case. Witness had never heard him threaten to take his life. He was not in any financial difficulties as far as witness was aware. Nor could witness say that his practice had declined on the contary he believed he had been doing well of late. Wit- ness had never had any indication that his brother was likely to take his life. He knew that he was in the habit of taking stimulants and pick-me-ups prepared by himself. Dr William Batten Williams, practising at Prestatyn, stated that on Friday he happened to call at the Railway Hotel to see Mrs Fenton, a patient of his. and she seemed much concern- ed about something deceased had said the night before. It appeared that he had been Threatening to Kill himself, and witness was asked if he would go as far as his surgery and see if he was there. Prior to carrying out that request witness went home and got some letters ready for post. On turn- ing out of doors again, shortly after 7 p.m., he met Mr Daniel Davies, who asked him if he had seen deceased at all thau d-.ty. He told him what he had heard about deceased, and upon Mr Davies insisting that it was his duty he went to look for deceased. He went through the house with a lantern, looking into the sur- gery first. But it was not till he Nas finally turning away from the surgery that he caught sight of a form in a corner, which proved to be the dead body of him for whom he was searching. The body was quite stiff and the knees were drawn up, and death had evidently occurred about twelve hours before. In deceaseds r- Jett hand was a bottle labelled bpirits ot Camphor," but a smell quickly proved to wit- ness that it contained an exceedingly strong preparation of prussic acid. By a juryman—The stopper was in the bottle, which illustrated a habit of the pro- fession which was strong even in death. By the Coroner—In all probability deceased took a mouthful of the mixture. About ten drops would be suthcient to kill a man. It was scarcely possible to touch prussic acid at all without fatal consequences-it was a terrible poison, causing almost instantaneous death. Witness saw deceased twice on Thursday, and had a long chat with him in the morning. He seemed better than witness had seen him look- ing for some time, and he was perfectly sober and discussed current topics as any other man would. Witness had never heard him threaten to take his life. "If I may say so, I don't think he took his life at all," added witness. The Coroner—That is a matter for the jury. Further questioned, witness said that except for epileptic tits deceased's health was good. A juryman (Mr Littler)—He had not had any tits for sometime. Witness-I believe he had one just before he died. Continuing, witness said that deceased had been very sober lately, and had been doing his work well. The way the bottle in deceased s hand was labelled led him to form a theory which he would like to submit to the jury. Spirits of camphor were such a restora- tive in cases of collapse after a fit, and it was quite possible that deceased in taking up the bottle which he believed to contain spirits of camphor forgot that he put prussic acid into it by misadventure. The Coroner-That is not evidence. P.C. Cheney stated that on arrival at deceased's surgery, immediately after the receipt of a telephone message at about 7-25 p.m. on Friday, he found deceased on his back, his head resting on an empty box, and a bottle grasped in his left hand. Witness searched the premises as well as he could, but could not find any written statement in any shape or form. Deceased's watch had stopped at about eight minutes to seven. Besides the watch, there were only a tiny bottle, a key, and a small pencil about deceased's clothes- no money at all. Lying on the floor behind the door were two unopened letters, the post- marks of which showed that they were posted on Thursday. Witness last saw deceased alive at about 10-.1 Ö Oll Thursday night. He was then leaving the Railway Hotel, and waved his hand to witness and said "Good night in his usual manner. Witness did not -=====-=--

think that anybody else saw him alive aftyr that. By a juryman—Deceased was perfectly sober at that time. Witness had never heard him threaten to take his life Thomas Jones, labourer, Jubilee Terrace, de- posed that when he saw deceased a little before ten o'clock on Thursday night he was quite sober. He talked about his business and said he was in a bit of a bother, to which witness replied If I were you I would not bother my- self." After that they went on to talk about, some horses and other things. Deceased did say he was not well somehow, and that he would take poison one of these days, as he was Tired of his Life. Witness, however, thought he was only joking, as lie was always that way inclined. They parted at about a quarter to eleven, which was the last witness saw of deceased. Eytor. Jones, barman at the Railway Hotel,* stated that on Thursday night deceased kept going in and out of the hotel, as he had a lady patient in the commercial room. During that I time he only had one or two glasses of beer. Witness was a party to the conversation related ¡ by the previous witness, and when deceased said that he was troiu" to do away with himself he told him not to be foolish. By a juryman—Deceased was accustomed to making use of a lot of tommyrot," and always finished up with a laugh. The Coroner, in summing up, said it was perfectly clear that death was the result of a dose of prussic acid. The next question was —did deceased take the poison with the view of taking his life? But for the evidence of the last two witnesses, he thought the jury might very well consider there was a certain amount of doubt as to the circumstances under which deceased took the poison. When a person took poison it was generally suspicious, especially in a case where such a poison as prussic acid was II used. They had the distinct evidence of two witnesses who saw deceased within probably a few hours of his death and to whom he made certain statements. In the face of that evi- dence, he did not think it possible that any reasonable man could doubt that deceased took his own life. To assume that the whole thing was a misadventure was an assumption which he did not think could be borne out by the evi- dence. He was therefore bound to direct the jury that the evidence pointed to suicide. The next point to be considered was as to the state of deceased's mind. On that point, they had three alternatives, but there was a great deal in the evidence which showed that deceased was temporarily insane. The jury retired to consider their verdict and on their return into court after about five minutes' deliberation the foreman said-The jury have unanimously come to the conclusion that Dr. Davies died from a dose of prussic acid taken by misadventure. The Coroner—That is your verdict. The Foreman—Yes. The Coroner-I must say it is not strictly in accordance with the evidence. Still I am bound to take your verdict. —————
