This committee met in the govor- iior's office yesterday afternoon and tlovernor Hoch gave them their final instructions. .After explaining that Bernard had brought the charges, he governor said: "If all. or any. of these rnarges are rue, not only the people of Oklaiioma hut the people of this state as well are entitled to know the facts. It is due lo he warden of this Instituion. W. H. Ifaskell. to say that he has repeatedly insisted upon this investigation since the.-^e charges were made and that he. no less than I. dosire It to lie without fear or favor. 1 desire that you se- ure the services «)f a competent stenographer and make a record of the Imiioriani testimony that may lie given In the Investigation." Tlie governor mentioned particularly the following ixiints: First—^The sanitary condition of the prison, of its cell houses, its mines, its culinary department, its workshops its hospital < Second—The quantity and quality of food furnished the prisoners, the methods of Its preparation for their daily consumption. Third—The punishments and methods resorted to to enforce discipline. Fourth—The attitude of the ofjHcers of the institution toward the prisoners, from the warden to the lowest subordinate in rank, whether gentlemanly antl humane, or the reverse. Fifth—^Along any other Ilnea in which your judgment may lead you. A Feileral Prison Comparison. "in oriler that this investigation may be of value," continued Governor Hoch, "let me suggest that officers and prisoners alike, who may be called upon to testify, may be assured that no harm shall come to them from any toKllniony they may give so far ajf this administration can give such an assurance and so far as the incoming administration can be influenced by me. and 1 hav'e no doubt whatever of the hearty approval of this assurance by the gentleman who is to be my suc­ cessor. "I wish, gentlemen, that you might visit the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth and consult its warden, one of the most eminenti criminologists and penologists in the United States. Compare the conditions there, the methods of punishment, the sanitary conditions, the dietary facts and othei matters with our own iinstitution." The governor also said he hopec .Miss Bernard would attend the Investigation.
