Colonel Pullman , chief qunrtormnster
of the Department of the Missouri at
Omaha , this morning wired Dr. 0. A.
McKim , stating that Dr. Peters of Lin
coln had recommended him ns suitable
to go to the Philippines ns veterinnrinn
nnd stated that if he would accept a con
tract to remain for two years at a salary
of $100 a mouth and transportation to
wire a reply at once as he must be prepared -
pared to leave San Francisco September
1. This is the second offer of the kind
Mr. McKim has had , the other being at
the time of the Iowa-Nebraska veteri
nary meeting at Omaha last fall when
two veterinarians wore wanted. Dr.
McKim has refused both offers for vari
ous reasons , the principal of which is
that the government does not rank its
veterinarians with doctors nnd dentists ,
but with the non-commissioned officers.
A bill was recently introduced iu con
gress , that had the support of veterin
arians , to change their rank in the army
but it did not pass and consequently the
graduates of the better colleges of veter
inary surgeons have practically boy
cotted the service. Another reason
given by Mr. McKim is that ho cannoi
afford to leave his practice here at the
salary offered. Ho would bo compel ! oi
to live out of the $100 a mouth and as
living there is considered high ho woulc
not have a largo margin of profit for
Kalamazoo celery at Glissmim'e.
