The question then arose as to where th

This brought Dr. Thorno of Toledo , O , , t
his feet , who announced that Toledo , O. , wu

The second proposition was carried almost
Then On mo the Cllnloi.
Business over , the conventlor. settled down
to listen to "A Case of Injury to the Bladder
and Kcctum , " prepared by Dr. D. S. Fairchild -
child , ono of the most Interesting cases reported -
ported to the convention , Dr. l-'alrchlld , In
the opinion of such old practitioners as Dr.
Murdoclr , showing rare surgical skill In
handling the caso. Quito n number of the
ablest physicians discussed the paper , both
from a railroad and private practice stand
"Tho Somotlmo Early Special Treatment
of Diseases of the Eyo" was the tltlo of Dr.
Joseph A. White's ossay. It was discussed
by sevornl surgeons , who have predilections
"Tho Hcsponsihlltty of the Surgeon In
Suits for Damages Against Hallway Compa
nies" brought out an exhaustive paper by
Dr. C. M. Woodward.
Dr. J. B. Murphy of Chicago , assisted by
Dr. J. M. Dinuon of Fort Wayne , Ind ! , nnd
Dr. Boullleur of Chicago , gave n practical
demonstration before the association , nt its
request , Just before the adjournment at the
noon hour , on n dog , for intestinal anas-
tamosls , by using the Murphy button. This
button Is a recent Invention of Dr. Murphy's
and designed for the purpose of lessening
time , Insuring results , unit will make opera
tions on the bowel , that formerly were the
bugbear cf surgery , as simple , loss danger
ous , as certain and oven more rapid than the
amputation of a linger.
The lateness of the hour at which the
convention adjourned for dinner , duo to the
domonstratlon by jjr. Murphy , caused the
association to assemble very slowly at the
afternoon session. But President Brock
seeing ndjournmont loom up above the
horizon nt oneo got down to business.
A delegate who had seen the demonstra
tion of the morning moved a vote ot thanks
to Dr. Murphy and the convention passed
it by a rising voto.
A volunteer naper from D. Joshua Chit-
wood of Connorsvlllo , Ind. , was road upon
"Superheated Steam as Applied to Ships
and Hallroad Coaches' as a Germicide. "
The papers assigned to the afternoon ses
sion were referred to the committee on pub
lication , the essayists not bciug present.
To Prnvont tli Hiinnid of Ohotorii.
Dr. Lewis of Kansas Olt.v then began the
discussion of the paper which referred par
ticularly to the prevention of cholera. Ho
said that something must bo done to prevent
the spread of the dread disease. "If you ,
gentlemen , have ever gene through a scourge
of this kind you know its dreadful elTccts.
Men dead within , two , four or six hours
after infection. Every medical body of men
in the United States owe to the hospital
service In Now Yorc | a vote of thanks for the
efforts it made to keep cholera within
bounds. The only perfectly reliable method
'of killing the microbes is by superheated
steam. This is a vital matter to us
and the only safe anchor is superheated
steam. Germ roasting machines dot our
country for killing scarlet fever , smallpox ,
yellow fever , nnd now these machines will
bo called upon to show if they will destroy
cholera germs. Ho then moved tliat the as
sociation extend to the quarantine oftlccrs of
Now York a vote of thanks for the efllclent
manner In which they maintained the health
of the country at a time when the scourge
seemed so near upon the whole country.
Against Nntloiml Quarantine.
Before the motion could bo put to the con
vention Dr. Thomas H. Manloy of Now
York arose to pay a flno tribute to Dr.
Jenkins of the port of Now York for his
heroic efforts in keeping out the germs. Ho
also stated that ho understood that it was
the intention of the association to pass a
resolution asking that a national board of
health be created. Ho hoped that such a
resolution would not prevail , as the states
were quite able to take care of themselves.
Ho contended that the state of New York , if
loft alone , would take care of the spread of
Dr. Manloy's remarks precipitated the
warmest kind of discussion. Dr. Thorno was
on his feet In a moment and said that
twenty-flVo years ago ho was fighting
against states rights and ho was fighting
against the principle still. Ho contended
that this was a nation with a big N and
should look after the health of the country
rather than the states in grave questions of
this kind. Ho could not see why the gov
ernment should not protect Itself against
the cholera which threatens us.
J.lvoly Spatting on Stutcd ICIghta.
Dr. Murphy of St. Paul argued in favor of
state health boards rather than leaving
the question to the government. Ho stated
that there was too much government and
not enough state In the discussion of the
The resolution of thanks to Dr. Jonktns of
Now York was then adopted.
Then Dr. Thorno moved that It bo the
sense of this convention that this question
of protection against cholera bo loft to the
Dr. Miuiloy was on his foot In a minute ,
his arm was In the air rind with expressive
voice said ho hoped the motion would not
prevail , that the state of Now York was
forever opjioscd to the paternalism of the
older countries nor would she stand to have
her autonomy broker.
Then Dr. Hogors of Memphis roused the
Tammany tiger hiding bcuoatn tha elceli
exterior of Dr. Manloy by an Impassioned
speech in favor of the question being directly
referred to the federal government. He
twisted the tall of the "cat of the jungle11
in grand stand style , assorting that the port
of Now York was in the wowor of Tamilian )
and ono of its most fertihrvoto getters. He
hoped the resolution would pass.
Dr. Mnnloy branded as highly incorrect
some of the statements made by Dr. Roger ;
and moved that the matter Iio on the table

Porter of Fort Wayne , Ind. , mounted UK
platform and stated in strong voice thai

XUriD Cur , S. D. , Juno 2. [ Special to
TUB BBB. ] Ever since the last election
the democratic and assistant democratic
members of the congressional delega
tions from North nnd South Dakota , assisted
by the party loaders who share , or would
llko to share , in the distribution of federal
patronage , have boon making quiet but
strenuous efforts to have the two Dakotas
cut of from the Nebraska revenue district
with a revenue agent at Sioux Falls and his
assistants taken from various portions of the
two states. Today TUB BKK correspondent
mot Mr. W. S. Hall of the revenue service
nnd asked him regarding the progress of the
movement and the probability as to its being
successful. Mr. Hall said :
"I have understood that such a move was
being made , but Know nothing further about
it and care very little , as it 1s none of my
business. As to the probability of the dis
trict being divided , I have n decided opinion ,
and It is that the movement will not bo suc
cessful. My reasons for this opinion I draw
from the history of the district. Senators
Moody and Pottigrow , assisted by several
congressmen , made a vigorous attempt four
years ago to have the district divided
and were unsuccessful. There was
formerly a district of the Territory
of Dakota , but on the abolishment of
the taxes ou matches , chocks , notes , deeds ,
ota. , and the reduction of the tax on tobacco
and distilled spirits in 18 * ) the district was
merged or consolidated into the district of
Nebraska , with headquarters nt Omuha. It
was done as a matter of economy. Governor
Ponnlngton was for munv years collector of
the district of Dakota. By the way , ho is
now publishing a democratic paper In Knox-
vlllo , Tonn. This territory did not treat
him right. Ho was from North Carolina ,
and during the war ran a staunch union
paper there. The disunionlsts could uot
terrify or make him budge an inch. Ho was
ono of the bravest men I over know and
never got under the band wagon to speak
his piece. If ho had been duly appreciated
hero ho would have graced n senator's chair
and made a valuable- representative for Da
"But about this revenue business , Mr.
When the Itovcnuo Is Collected.
"Tho collections for the fiscal year ending
Juno 80 , 183.3 , in the territory were in round
llgures $33,000. When Senators Moody , Pot
tigrow , ot al , made the attempt in lbS9 to
have a district for the collection of internal
rovouuo for the Dakotas , the secretary of
the treasury called on the Omaha ofllco for
the figures. I happened to bo In Omaha at
the lime and General Dennis nailed mo to
help him got them out. The accounts of the
three states had been kdpt under ono head ,
and It was a good dual like searching for n
necdlo In n haymow. After working on
the old and now records for several
days vand finding -rro could not got
exact 'figures , wo made an estimate and
$5'J,000 was settled upon as the revenue for
the two Dakotas for the llscal year ending
Juno i0 ! , ISS'.l. Since then the accounts have
been kept soparato. The collections tor the
year ending June 30 , 18UJ. for the district of
Nebraska were close to $4,000,000 , of which
the two Dakotaa paid only about $ H2,000.
The great bulk of the revenue taxes m this
district are paid at Omaha ami Nebraska
City. The Willow Springs distillery nt
Omaha and tbo Nebraska City Distilling
company each pays more taxes in ono week
than the two Dakotas pay lu ono year.
Krug , the Omaha brpwer , last year paid
$187,000. or over three times as much as the
two Dakotas , and Stow and the Omaha
Brewing association each paid nearly as
"If the Dakotaa wore made a separate
district it would cpst about 23 cents to col
lect SI , while at present the cost of collection
Is ubput 1 per cent. The salary of collector
is based on the amount collected , the
minimum being $2,100 and the maximum
f 1,500. Instead of now districts the next
congress , I am informed by persons who
should know , will cut the number of dis
tricts from sixty-throe to about forty. It is
proposed to attach Kansas to Nebraska and
the two Iowa districts to Minnesota. "
"What about the collectorship ? "
"Thoro are several candidates in the
field : Senator North of Columbus , Cox of
Lincoln and Jules Lumbard of Omaha.
Patrick Wickhum of Alexandria , S. D. ,
would not refuse it and Dan Marrata of
Bismarck la pushing his claims energetically.
The choice will probably bo between North
and Marrata. "
"Judging from the revenue returns how is
prohibition working in North and South Da-
Prohibition nnd Its Kiructi.
"From a money standpoint it decreases
the revenue collected , although It increases
the number of retail dealers , for the reason
that It drives out of the state the brewers ,
manufacturers and largo dealers who
always pay the most taxes. As to the moral
side , prohibition prohibits herons much as it
does elsewhere. I have been in every pro
hibition state , in Canada and Old Mexico ,
and wherever tried , except at some few
country crossroads towns , It Is a dead letter.
There are 1,07'J retail and eight wholesale
liquor dealers in South Dakota , live of the
latter being in the Black. Hills section.
North Dakota has 333 retail and ono wholo-
j sale liquor dealers , an increase of about ! ! 1
per cent since the prohibition laws were enacted -
acted , without it corresponding increase in
population. To illustrate : Take Nebraska ,
which has the Slocuin hlcrli license law. The
city of Kearney , a thriving , busy place of
13,000 people , lias eight liquor dealers
outside of the drug stores. Hero at
Hapld City with , say 2,400 popula
tion , you have , including drucj stores ,
twenty-two liquor dealers. Dnadwood , with
Its 3,000 population , has within two of as
many special tax stamps for the sale of
liquor as Lincoln , Nob. , with its 03,000 popu
lation. Beatrice. Neb , , has not as many
liquor dealers as Sturgis In this state though
Beatrice has over ten times the population
of Sturgis. Prohibition Iowa has 4,000 liquor
dealers to Nebraska's -,200. Thcso and
many other llko facts can bo found in the
last annual report of the commissioner of In
ternal rovcnuo. Prohibitionists can find
very llttlo consolation or encouragement in
the rovouuo returns. "

Electrician Conrglll Will Report
Jlosults of the Work.
The photometer for the USD of the city
electrician In making tests of the are street
Ights for candle power lias arrived , and the
first preliminary test has boon mado. The
.nstrumont arrived Thursday morning and
; t was the Intention to keep the faot from
becoming public property , In order that Mr.
Cowglll might make tests oLtbo lights with
out the knowledge of any meddlers , or
About 11 o'clock Thuasday night a DEB re
porter noticed several people In the center of
tbostrcotand thoarcllght at tbo Intersection
of Twentieth street nud St. Mary's avenue
was lowered nearly to the ground. The center -
tor of attraction seemed to bo a nickel-
plated Instrument , duly mounted , that might
have been taken for a surveyor's instru-
mont. Tbo proup was also taking note of
the movements of a small man , who was roc-
Oirnlzed as City Electrician Uowglll. Ho had
ventured out alone at that time of the night
for tbo purpose of ascertaining with the
photometer exactly what sort of a light the
city Is receiving from the Thomson-Houston
company , and had selected the spot referred
to as being very advantageous for his ot > -
sorvatlons and tost. The rouortor lingered
nnd did not quit tbo company of the oloo-
trlcinn until the test bad been completed ,
tbo landings dotted down and the iiooossury
Unirtho Power PnJVl For.
The result of the test sva's perfectly satis
factory and sustains tlm position of Mayor
Bemis and other ofUclaU.iJJ.'hoy have con
tended that the arc light * , which are
required by the coutraotkVflth the com
pany to bo 2,000-candle power , are not up to
that standard and by a t < t/vould : not develop -
volop moro than ono-lulf ttati/riio ) test of the
light at Twentieth strotjt' and St. Mary'a
uvpnuo developed a candLa power of between
1,000 and 1,100 , with n voltatfo of 03. The
reading was made under Uiotwost favorable
of circumstances , and tua Alight was given
the benefit of every doubt. [ Several readIngs -
Ings were made , and an average was made ,
and tbo result arrived atiintliat manner.
After completing tha work tboro the
electrician shouldered his instrument and
next stopped at Twcntyrfourth street and
St. Mary's nvenuo. The pro light was
lowered , a focus from an advantageous posi
tion secured und sevorST roadlngs were
made. This light was not nearly so strong
us tbo other , and although nearly an Hour
was spent there It was Impossible to secure
a moro favorable reading than the first one
made. The candle power developed was be
tween 000 and 703 , and it was Impossible to
secure a bettor showing ,
Features of the 1'hotometor.
No other lights were tested that night and
the preliminary trial pnvo the best of satis
faction , Mr. Cowglll has acquainted himself
with the instrument and Its workings and
has It well In hand. Ho believes it will prove
a success and that Its accuracy will bo fully
DBUbllshed. Ho > vill follow up tha work of
testing and will make known to the council
what ho ascertains.

Berlin. It weighs twelve or thirteen pounds
and is oasilv taken from ouo point to
another. It is T shaped , nickel plated , and
in appearance resembles a surveyor's in
strument. Its worltings are very simple
and not nearly so complicated as an untutored
mind might imagine. There are two cylin
ders , ono being used for gazing at the
light to bo tested , and the other to balance
the standard candle burning within. In the
flrst oylirfdor are placed glass lenses , the
number being determined by the Intensity
of tno light. Tuoy retard the light and
bring it to a minimum to bear
measurement. The rays of the light
reflected through the lenso strike
farther back a triangular lonso , located
ut the Junction where the other cylinder
connects. The rays of light from the stand
ard candle also strike this lens , and u reflec
tion of brilliancy is thus secured. Witbin the
cylinder containing the standard candle is a
movable lens , or screen. This is moved
along until the bright reflection on the
triangular lens is obliterated.
How K ntiHs nro Obtained.
It is the balancing of n standard candle
against an unknown light that brings
the result. The distance is then measured
In millimeters , the movable lens registering
the number on the scale. Then the number
of millimeters from the light measured to
the flrst louses is ascertained. The square
of each is then computed , and a multiplica
tion of the result with the retarding power
of the lenses used In the measurement brings
the candle power of the light.
The accuracy of the instrument Is war
ranted by the company manufacturing , who
claim that the only error that can bo
committed is In the reading by the observer.
Prof. Huinrich , who has ono of the instru
ments ou exhibition nt the World's fair , has
written that ho will come to Omaha in case
it is desired , provided the traveling expenses
After n number of tests have been made
by the electrician and ho is fully convinced
of its responsibility and accuracy the coun
cil will probably take a hand In the matter ,
If the results prove the same as the prelim
inary ones , and the lights are found to lie so
far below candle power , It is promised by
some of the counciimcn that the bills of the
elostriu light company will bo cut down , and
then fun is expected.
