The Commissioners of Cook County, Ill., have at last yielded to the voice of the medical profession and the public, and appointed a competent board to supervise matters at the County Hospital for the Insane.
Let us trust that the Commissioners will have the good sense to follow this up, by the appointment of a medical man as resident superintendent. Drs. Richard Dewey, Sanger Brown and Archibald Church are named as the board, to have supervisory control over the medical affairs of the hospital. It has been stated that the absence of Dr. Dewey will probably prevent his acceptance, but there is no dearth of good timber in Chicago. There are to be two resident assistants selected under civil service rules. The order of the Commissioners is elsewhere printed.
