gc-fore the lcglxlutlve InvesligaUng com-
mlitee in which McNeal says lhat
Flynn owned Jt.000 nnd Grimes J4.000
of r'-x-k in the Norman sanitarium. The
evidence also tonded to show that there
was a great deal more slock held by
th-m but held In other names. Mo-
Noal was on the Inside of tha transac-
tion relative to the institution acting
as financial agent In many of the dats.
McNeill also showed that the profits or
the sanitarium amounted to about a
hundred per cent on tho Investment.
Does anyone wonder that Crimea oould
not be reappointed i secretary and
that the president has lost all conudenre
and political respect for Mr. Klynn.
when he knows all the facta connected
with tho sanitarium?
