Rocky Mountain News 2-7-1897 – The Insane Asylum – Dr. Eskridge Replies to Strictures Made Upon the Management of the Institution – To the Rocky Mountain News: The editorial on the insane asylum and the interview with the county commissioners in to-day's News, are in no sense malicious, and I feel that you want to get at the truth in the matter. The management of the asylum, and especially Dr. Thombs, the superintendent, have been misrepresented by somebody who seems to have a personal spite against Dr. Thombs… A staff of attending physicians has been elected to the asylum and these serve without pay. They consist of Drs. R. W. Corwin, Hubert Work, A. T. King, the present mayor of Pueblo, Rillah G. Hay, wife of Rev. Hay, E. M. Marbourg and W. W. Bulette of Pueblo, Drs. E. J. A. Rogers and Clayton Parkhill have accepted the position of consulting surgeons, and go down without pay whenever summoned…

Martin, Charlotte
Boulder Daily Camera 11-9-1897 – Hon. Clarence J. Chapman, of Loveland, married at First Methodist Church at Pueblo on November 6, Miss Charlotte Martin of Pueblo. He's a farmer and politician of Northern Colorado. His daughter is very happy with her new mother. Bride “is accomplished and esteemed supervisor of the female department at state asylum for the insane.” She owns ranch in Otero Co. Will resign from asylum. “The other wife and mother had basely deserted her post and gone with a foul betrayer.” Source “Genealogical Abstracts from the Boulder Daily Camera, 1891 – 1900,” by Mary McRoberts.

Martin, Charlotte
Denver Evening Post 11-9 1897 – C. J. Chapman Married – Clarence J. Chapman, state superintendent of irrigation, has become a benedict and was at his office today receiving congratulations. Mr. Chapman was married at the Methodist parsonage, Pueblo, on Sunday, to Miss Charlotte Martin, Rev. Dr. O. P. Wright officiating.

Martin, Charlotte
Denver Evening Post 1-22-1899 – Feeling Shows in Asylum Inquiry – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 21 – The investigation by the joint legislative committee into the affairs of the state insane asylum is now beginning to warm up… Former Lady Attendant Heard From Again – Mrs. Sadie Fisher was called. Mrs. Fisher was supervisoress of the female building, and she is a good looking young woman. She wore a chic new bonnet and was tastefully dressed in brown. As in the case of Dr. Thombs, Mrs. Fisher's testimony before the investigating committee of the board of charities and corrections was accepted by the committee, the members taking turns in reading it to the witness. Mrs. Fisher made several minor corrections. She testified substantially, that she came to Pueblo from Clarinda, Iowa, after having worked in asylums at Lincoln and Hastings, Neb. As supervisoress she found a lamentable and surprising state of affairs. She did not pretend to live up to the rules, as her predecessor, Mrs. Martin, told her that it was impossible to try to create order. Miss Carrie Jones had attacked her openly, abusing and insulting her; the patients were unruly, and the attendants left whenever they wished without reporting. She complained continually to Dr. Thombs about the food. It was wormy and of poor quality. Witness made a direct charge that Dr. Thombs had straight jackets and handcuffs applied by the attendants and while much cruelty was practiced, Dr. Thombs never took any steps to remedy it, because he did not care. She also asserted that patients died without its being discovered for several hours. The only exercise given the female patients was to take them for a walk on the lawn. This was done nearly every evening in the summer months…

Masters, John W.
Denver Evening Post 12-8-1898 – Stories of Brutal Treatment Sworn to by Witnesses – Extracts From the Testimony Before the Insane Asylum Investigating Committee – Mrs. Sadie Fisher, the supervisoress of the asylum, was the first witness examined at the insane asylum investigation made by the state board of charities and correction… Dr. Thombs was placed on the stand. He said he had been superintendent of the asylum for twenty years… Question – Suppose one or two or three attendants in the building here should testify under oath that a year ago last Christmas Mr. Burrows brought in a two-quart bottle of whisky with a label attached to it, “Merry Xmas; Help Yourself; Drink All You Want,” and that the attendants helped themselves, some freely, some not at all, and at least one of them because violently intoxicated and the druggist was driven out of his room and told Mrs. Thombs the circumstances. Have you any knowledge to contradict that? A – No, sir. I never heard of it and doubt it… J. W. Masters was placed on the stand. He was employed at the asylum from March, 1892 to June, 1898. He said the wards were often left alone. Sometimes the attendants would just simply go off without getting anybody's permission. Sometimes they would speak to another attendant to go after their wards. While he was an attendant sometimes it would be three months that he did not see Dr. Thombs at all. Q – You say three months elapsed while you were an attendant, that Dr. Thombs was not in your ward? A – Oh, yes, I think there was one year when Dr. Thombs would not be in the ward more than two or three times during the year. Q – Did he during your three years ever make a thorough examination of your ward or the patients in it? A – No, sir. Masters said he was never told to make reports. He said the doctor was scarcely ever at the asylum during the day. He said he had seen the attendants drunk, and that there was considerable drunkenness on the part of the male attendants. He corroborated the story of the whisky bottle, published above. He said the attendants recommended what medicine the patients received. In answer to a question he said: “I remember a case of Mr. Burrows knocking a patient down. I also remember his slapping a patient. Q – Did you ever see a patient allowed to go three or five days without anything to eat? A – Yes, sir. Q – Have you allowed them to be starved into eating? A – Mr. Burrows was not in favor of making them eat and they often went a long time without eating.

Denver Evening Post 1-21-1899 – Madmen Pass in Review at Pueblo – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 21 – When the asylum investigating committee met this morning… Slipshod Methods of Keeping Records – Ernest Weinhousen, the druggist at the asylum, was recalled to the stand and asked if he had any method of giving to the commissioners an accurate account of the expenditures in his department since he had been employed at the asylum. The witness said, “No, but the steward had.” … He had no index of patients, but stated that the record books were complete to date. Books “A” and “B,” kept by Dr. Thombs himself were offered in evidence. The witness testified that when he became connected with the asylum he found the books very faulty. Dr. Thombs told him to verify the books and rewrite them… The cross-examination was conducted by Attorney (Mortimer F.) Taylor for Dr. Thombs. Witness said that J. W. Masters had preceded him as druggist. Masters was discharged from the institution because he did not keep the records in books “A” and “B” correctly. The work of witness in the new books was begun within two or three days after he came to the asylum…

Denver Evening Post 1-22-1899 – Feeling Shows in Asylum Inquiry – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 21 – The investigation by the joint legislative committee into the affairs of the state insane asylum is now beginning to warm up… Late this evening a warm discussion over a Sunday session was indulged in... J. M. Mesters, a former druggist, made a strong witness for the prosecution. Neither of the two witnesses could be shaken by the attorneys for Dr. Thombs.

Masters, John W.
Denver Evening Post 1-22-1899 – Feeling Shows in Asylum Inquiry – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 21 – The investigation by the joint legislative committee into the affairs of the state insane asylum is now beginning to warm up… Former Asylum Druggist Tells of Lax Methods – At 9:10 o'clock, J. W. Mesters, a former druggist, was placed on the stand. He testified he had entered the employ of the asylum March 15, 1892, and afterwards served as attendant and then as druggist. He had seen some books of rules prepared for the guidance of attendants and other employes, but had never been given one by Dr. Thombs. While attendant, he took the men of his ward out for very little exercise. He saw the laxity of other attendants and followed their example. When he left his ward, he departed without asking anybody's permission. Sometimes he would ask another attendant to look after it for him while he was absent. One day he went on an excursion, securing permission from Dr. Thombs over the telephone. No complaint was ever made of his efficiency as an attendant. Dr. Thombs formerly had office hours in the city. Witness said this was so during his year's service as attendant. It was the superintendent's custom to leave the asylum in the morning and return in the evening. “I was not regarded as a good druggist or even a good nurse,” said the witness. The witness gave harmless medicines, such as salts, pills and cathartics. He never made an examination of a patient; even failed to feel the pulse or take the temperature. He kept a list of names of the men in his ward on writing paper. The witness said he left the asylum for the sake of harmony, Supervisor Burrows of the men's department, and Dr. Furman, the druggist, having taken his duties from him. Witness never fully understood what his duties were, as he was never informed. He recollected an inmate by the name of Wells, who was allowed unusual liberties, (who) gave medicine to some of the patients. When he was druggist witness had never heard any complaint against him.

Masters, John W.
Denver Evening Post 1-24-1899 – Asylum Inquisitors Down to Hard Pan – Pueblo, Jan. 24 – What will probably be the last day of the insane asylum investigation by the legislative committee began this morning with a denunciation by Attorney (Mortimer F.) Taylor, who, in vigorous language, characterized the examination of witnesses as “bullyragging,” and of such an illegal nature that 90 per cent of the testimony taken would be thrown out of an ordinary justice court… Burrows' Graphic Story – Thomas J. Burrows, supervisor of the male department was placed on the stand. The witness had come from a sick bed and his voice was husky, but he did not hesitate in his answers… On cross-examination by Attorney Taylor witness said that J. W. Masters, the former druggist, was negligent with his ward and patients and had been reprimanded several times.

Denver Evening Post 1-24-1899 – Asylum Inquisitors Down to Hard Pan – Pueblo, Jan. 24 – What will probably be the last day of the insane asylum investigation by the legislative committee began this morning with a denunciation by Attorney (Mortimer F.) Taylor, who, in vigorous language, characterized the examination of witnesses as “bullyragging,” and of such an illegal nature that 90 per cent of the testimony taken would be thrown out of an ordinary justice court… Burrows' Graphic Story – Thomas J. Burrows, supervisor of the male department was placed on the stand. The witness had come from a sick bed and his voice was husky, but he did not hesitate in his answers… In answer to the questions of the attorney general Mr. Burrows told the committee that he had been supervisor since Sept. 16, 1879, at a salary of $1,200 a year. Pay rolls had been kept for years. Attendants received $30 a month. An old attendant named J. L. McWilliams received $40 per month, the engineer $75 a month, the head Chinaman, who looks after the laundry for the male building, $40 a month and the other $25 a month. The salary of Mrs. Thombs is $75 a month… Maniac Who Made Stilettos – Witness told of the Italian, John Voltaire, a convict who had pleaded insanity and been incarcerated here. Voltaire was the subject of some remarks by the committee from the board of charities and his escape from his room was touched upon by the attorney general. “He was confined in one of the rear rooms in Ward A,” said Mr. Burrows. “In his room he had a galvanized iron chamber, from which he cunningly manufactured a pair of stilettos. One of these he used to remove the bricks in the back wall to effect his escape from his cell. McWilliams, the attendant, hurriedly sought me out and asked me to go with him at once. When we reached the ward Voltaire stood behind a pile of bricks with a stiletto hidden behind his wrist. Three other attendants were present, none of whom would venture to go against him. I approached the patient and began a gentle persuasion. It had no effect and almost before I knew what he was going to do he had sprung upon me and wounded me in the loin with his stiletto. I grappled with him, threw him down and we bound him without giving him a single scratch. He now lives in Denver and is accessible if you desire him.” … J. L. McWilliams, an attendant, was the next witness. His testimony substantiated the story of Supervisor Burrows about the attempted escape of the Italian Voltaire. Dr. Thombs was a frequent visitor in the ward of the witness. The patients were greatly attached to him and would gather around him whenever he appeared.

Denver Evening Post 1-22-1899 – Feeling Shows in Asylum Inquiry – Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 21 – The investigation by the joint legislative committee into the affairs of the state insane asylum is now beginning to warm up… Former Lady Attendant Heard >From Again – Mrs. Sadie Fisher was called. Mrs. Fisher was supervisoress of the female building, and she is a good looking young woman. She wore a chic new bonnet and was tastefully dressed in brown. As in the case of Dr. Thombs, Mrs. Fisher's testimony before the investigating committee of the board of charities and corrections was accepted by the committee, the members taking turns in reading it to the witness. Mrs. Fisher made several minor corrections. She testified substantially, that she came to Pueblo from Clarinda, Iowa, after having worked in asylums at Lincoln and Hastings, Neb. As supervisoress she found a lamentable and surprising state of affairs. She did not pretend to live up to the rules, as her predecessor, Mrs. Martin, told her that it was impossible to try to create order. Miss Carrie Jones had attacked her openly, abusing and insulting her; the patients were unruly, and the attendants left whenever they wished without reporting. She complained continually to Dr. Thombs about the food. It was wormy and of poor quality. Witness made a direct charge that Dr. Thombs had straight jackets and handcuffs applied by the attendants and while much cruelty was practiced, Dr. Thombs never took any steps to remedy it, because he did not care. She also asserted that patients died without its being discovered for several hours. The only exercise given the female patients was to take them for a walk on the lawn. This was done nearly every evening in the summer months. Mrs. Fisher Kept a Diary of Asylum Events – Attorney (Mortimer F.) Taylor at 6 o'clock began a sharp cross-examination of Mrs. Fisher, aimed to destroy the damaging effect of her testimony. The attorney asked, and the witness admitted that she had kept notes of all these occurrences of which she testified. She realized there would come a time when they would be needed. She began making notes last May. “What did you contemplate using them for? Were you preparing for an investigation?” “Yes.” “You made them so you would have something definite when called upon; hadn't you made up your mind to bring up this investigation?” Without a tremor Mrs. Fisher turned to the attorney. “Yes, I was convinced it was my duty.” The witness said that the ones insulting and abusing her were Miss Mock, Miss Carrie Jones, attendants, and Miss Batson, the laundress. It became so unbearable that she told Dr. Thombs if he did not settle it she would go to the board. “Who is Mr. Hoyt of Clarinda, Iowa?” “The superintendent of the asylum there.” “Did you not have the same trouble there that you have had here?” “No, it is not true, and I can prove it.” Witness emphatically denied that she had been asked to resign by Superintendent Hoyt… Witness repeated that the nurses and attendants frequently went away, locking the doors, seeking amusement themselves and leaving the wards alone and unattended. After describing how supplies were dumped in the middle of the halls and carelessly left alone, witness said that Dr. Thombs never talked to her while supervisoress, but her work was always satisfactory. She had time to watch the visits of Dr. Thombs and noted the same. “I could tell more than this,” said Mrs. Fisher… A Question Drew Tears From the Witness – “Is it not a fact that Dr. Thombs is a kind man; that he did not mean such a remark seriously, and that he afterwards tried to adjust troubles in the female ward?” Witness had tears in her eyes when she replied that personally she had nothing against Dr. Thombs. She said she thought Dr. Thombs should have discharged either Miss Jones or herself, but she did not feel like resigning as she needed the position…

Miss Batson testified that when the nurses went away on vacations they took turns for each other, doing double work. She had relieved Miss Mock. It was an onerous position to take care of a ward of forty-eight patients… Story of a Nurse – Miss Eva Mock, a nurse, was placed on the stand and had her testimony read to her.
