ASYLUM  FOR  THE  INSANE.
1894.
To His Honour Edgar Dewdney,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
The undersigned respectfully submits, herewith, the Annual Report of the Medical
Superintendent of the Asylum for the Insane for the year 1894.
JAMES BAKER,
Provincial Secretary.
Provincial Secretary's Office,
May, 1895. 810 Report on the Asylum eor the Insane. 1894
REPORT
OP   THE
MEDICAL SUPERINTENDENT OF THE ASYLUM FOR THE INSANE,
New Westminster, B. C,
For the year ending 31st December, 1894-
To the Honourable the Provincial Secretary.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith the Annual Report for the twenty-third year
of the Asylum, ending 31st December, 1894.
The statistical tables appended contain a full record of the operations of the institution
for the year.
During the year the total number of patients under treatment was 213, of whom 169
were males and 44 were females. Remaining in residence at the close of the year were 162,
of whom 131 were males and 31 were females.
Admissions.
In referring to Table No. 1 the number shewn as admitted is 80, this being 31 more than
in the previous year. In the number admitted are included 9 by warrant, and 18 who had
been taken by their friends on probation, but were obliged to be sent back owing to a return
of their malady.     Deducting these 18 on probation, the number of new patients is 62.
Amongst the re-admissions is an idiot boy whom his parents take out occasionally for a
few months' change, and two females who have been alternating between the Asylum and
their homes, one since 1886 and the other since 1890.
Discharges.
The discharged number 31, of whom 12 had recovered, 17 were discharged improved, and
2 were discharged unimproved.
Of the improved one was a female who also suffered from heart disease, and it is reported
has since died at her home in Vancouver.
Escapes.
There were very few attempts to escape; one, however, was successful. A Chinese
patient who had recovered and was to have been discharged in the afternoon managed to
baffle the surveillance of the attendants during the morning and got away. Being well enough
to look after himself, and having friends in the city, he was not searched for.
Deaths.
The number of deaths was 19, being 8.92 per cent, of the whole number treated, an
increase on the previous year of 1.3 per cent.
The deaths were all from the effects of disease from which the patients suffered on
admission, excepting that of one man who died from excessive diarrhoea, and one (a Chinese)
from an abcess in the neck.
There were no cases of suicide, nor any attempts at suicide, during the year. 58 Viot.
Report on the Asylum for the Insane.

Work.
During the past year all the available ground for garden purposes was cultivated to the
best advantage, and the amount of crops reaped will be seen by turning to Table No. 14.
In the spring there were about two acres of the wild land at the back of the building
cleared and planted with potatoes and turnips, the work being done by the patients, after
which the road from the main entrance was graded by them. Flower borders were also
started at the front of the building, and were a great source of pleasure and interest to the
patients who looked after them.
The necessary work for the interior of the building has been carefully attended to.
The female ward has contributed its share of work, as will be seen in Table No. 12.
The poultry yard (supervised by the Matron) has returned in cash, $4.50 and in eggs 103
dozen, which have been used in the Asylum. These at the contract price, thirty cents per
dozen, make an additional sum of $30.90. Total, $35.40. The feed for the poultry (vide
Table No. 10) has cost during the year $9.52, which leaves a net profit of $25.88.
The total amount of work done by the patients during the year represents the work of
10,661J days, being an increase on last year of 737 days.
Expenditure.
The per capita cost (Table No. 13) includes all the expenditure of the Asylum, salaries,
provisions, fuel, lighting, drugs, furniture, bedding, &c., in fact everything but what belongs
to the Land and Works Department, and transport of lunatics and attendants.
The cost this year per patient per month was $14.79-J, and per day 48§ cents, that of the
previous year being 511 cents, showing a decrease of cost of three cents per patient per diem.
Estimates.
The following will show the amounts expended as compared with the amounts voted, and
as the yearly report is from January 1st to December 31st, and the votes are from July 1st to
June 30th, it will be necessary to include  the fiscal year of 1893 to get a clear estimate:—
Vote, 1893.

In explanation of the excess of expenditure over the vote in fuel and light, I am informed
that the disbursement of the amount voted has been economically dealt with as in previous
years, in fact during the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1893, the total amount expended was
$2,788.65, being an excess over the fiscal year just closed of $108.26. The excess of expenditure in medicines was owing to a large supply of drugs, &c, being bought from A. M. Herring's
drug store in November, 1893, shortly after his store was partly burnt, there being then a
good opportunity of replenishing many things in the surgery at a much lower rate than cost.
The furniture vote was exceeded by the purchase of some iron bedsteads which should have
been delivered during the latter part of the fiscal year previous, and for which a sufficient
balance, $337.37, had been reserved. The bedsteads did not arrive until July, 1893, and a
voucher was passed for them at the end of that month to the amount of $324. In Lands and
Works the over-expenditure can only be accounted for by the smallness of the vote, in all
$750.    I find $1,000 was asked for by the late Medical Superintendent, 812

It will be seen by these figures that already more than half the vote has been expended
in provisions, water (which for 1894-5 is only $350 against $600 for the fiscal year 1893-4),
clothing and furniture, although the cost per capita per day for the six months is only 48^
cents. This is accounted for by the increase of the number of patients, and latterly by the
addition to the staff. I understand that the new laundry has yet to be paid for out of the
balance of the vote for Lands and Works.
Divine Services.
During the past year the Asylum has lost by death the good services of the late Ven.
Archdeacon Woods, who attended to the spiritual wants of the institution until he was
completely disabled by severe illness.
In acknowledging his work both the patients and officers whom he attended desire to
have recorded their sincere sympathy and condolences to his bereaved family. During the
past few months the Rev. P. Woods has conducted divine services regularly on Sundays.
There has been a few visits made from the ministers of the other Protestant denominations, but I understand there is room for improvement in that respect. The Rev. Father
Ouillette has, as usual, attended to those patients who belong to his church.
At the burial of the dead the clergymen of the respective denominations of the deceased
have officiated.
The choir at the Sunday services is composed of ladies resident in the city.
Changes.
On the 31st October Dr. E. S. Hasell and Dr. C. F. Newcombe, Commissioners appointed
by the Provincial Government, held an enquiry at the Asylum, and from the evidence adduced
it was found advisable to discharge H. H. Williams (2nd male attendant) and H. Gunn (7th
attendant).    Since then J. Harper (9th attendant) has resigned.
Their places have been filled by those next on turn, and R. S. Cunningham, J. F. Strang,
J. McLeod, E. Fitzgerald, and E. Harrap have been placed on the staff as attendants. W. C.
Loye (shoemaker) and E. Sullivan (tailor) have also been engaged as trade instructors and
attendants.
R. Anderson, the nightwatchman, gave a month's notice in December, and has been
replaced by J. McNeely, who should be an efficient attendant in that capacity, as he has had
some years' experience in eastern asylums.
The other resignation to be reported is that of the Medical Superintendent, R. I. Bentley,
Esq., M. B. He resigned at the end of the year, Dr. C. F. Newcombe having relieved him on
the 3rd December, since which date Dr. Newcombe has been in office as acting Medical
Superintendent until February 1st, on which day I took over the duties.
Acknowledgments.
The patients and attendants wish to express their thanks to the Rev. P. Woods for his
kind attention and visits, and to the ladies who have assisted him in the choir.
They also thank Dr. Newcombe for the social and Christmas tree on the 26th December.
It was greatly enjoyed by all, 58 Vict. Report on thk Asylum for the Insane. 813
On the 28th December the Society of the Royal Templars of Temperance, of New Westminster, gave a musical entertainment, which was also a great success ; both patients and
attendants desire to express thanks for the same. It is unusual to be unable to record as
many entertainments as formerly for the winter season, but probably the unsettled state of
the affairs of the institution has been the cause.
The thanks of the patients are given to the Editor of the Vancouver " Weekly World "
for his kind courtesy in forwarding his paper.    It is greatly appreciated by many of them.
The Club of New Westminster and many ladies and gentlemen of the city are thanked
for forwarding books and periodicals ; the ladies who kindly sent books and papers to the
patients, are Mrs. Dickenson, Mrs. Rickman, Mrs. W. B. Townsend, and Miss Webster.
The flowers so thoughtfully presented by Mrs. Edmonds and Miss Webster during the
summer months must be also gratefully acknowledged here. Miss Webster frequently brought
flowers and fruit, and at Christmas gave many presents to be placed on the Xmas. tree for the
patients, in whom she has always taken a kindly interest.
As I only entered upon the duties of my office on February 1st, I am of course dependent
upon my colleagues here, Mr. Phillips (steward), Mr. Knight (clerk), and Mrs. Ross (matron),
of the institution for information contained in this report, but having examined the books, and
having made due enquiry, I have every reason to believe it is an accurate record of the transactions of the Asylum for the year 1894.
I have to add that I have received from the above-mentioned officials, and from the
attendants and servants, every possible assistance in making myself familiar with the routine
of the establishment, and that the whole staff has worked most willingly and well during the
month I have been in office. I take the opportunity of expressing my thanks to them all for
the great assistance I have received from them, and for the cordial manner in which it has
been rendered.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
G. F. BODINGTON, M. D.,
Medical Superintendent.
