Charges that Henry Harrison Brown, civil war veteran and editor, stricken with heart failure at the G. A. R. exercises at the Greek theater, University of California, Wednesday, was refused admittance to the University of California Infirmary, and died while being taken to another hospital, were filed today with Governor William D. Stephens.

Edward Maybem, employed in the city corporation yards, and Eddie Hugres, chauffeur of Chief of Police J. H. Nedderman of Oakland, who took the stricken man to the university hospital after he had collapsed, and when refused admittance there, according to their story, took him to the Roosevelt hospital, are the accusers.

Professor M. C. Lynch, assistant to President Benjamin Ide Wheeler...of the University of California, asserts that he has investigated and that he is informed that the man was dead before his arrival at the University infirmary. This Maybem and Hughes denied.

"The man was alive when we reached the hospital." says Maybem. "He may have died before a doctor condescended to look at him."

"We hurried the stricken man to the university hospital, only a short distance from the theater and the nearest place where he could have gotten relief. Here they refused to admit the sick man. Finally, when we said it was urgent and begged aid, a doctor came out and looked at him in the machine, and then said to lake him somewhere else. We took him to the Roosevelt, a considerable distance away. By that time he was dead."

Hughes confirms this story.

Mayhem accompanied him. Maybem states that the man was breathing when they arrived at the hospital, and was alive during their debate with the hospital attendants. He says that death did not occur until some time afterward. Brown was dead when the machine arrived at the Roosevelt hospital.

A full account of the case, containing he stories of both witnesses, is in the hands of the governor. In the meantime the president's office at the university is also Investigating.
