. LINCOLN, Neb., May 10. iSpi rial.)
Taking tli stand that the medical u
pert should b eliminated from the wllms
flam) In criminal und civil law suits, Lr.
r. II. Salter of Norfolk, Nb., president
of th Nebraska State Medical association,
tonight recommended legislation In this
'".state, such as has been enacted In one
or two other stales provided for the ep-
ilrl met
neuVal menvby the county to assmine inc
medical data In a jflven case and then to
report their flndlnns to the Jury. He rte-
dared that the wide differences of opinion
aiven to Juries by so-called medical ex
perts, based on the same data, holds up the
medical uiufesslou to public criticism and
works for h nilHcarriuKc of Justice.
"How can we expect a Jury to twelve
men who know nothltiK of medicine to form
an Idea as to the truth of the case at
hand when one doctor will solemnly testify
i,n his uatli that the victim could have
died only from strychnine poisoning and
when another, called by the opposing side
in the, case nnd of con cspoiiding high re
pute, will testify that the victim positively
did hot die from strychnine polsonlnK'.'"
asks the doctor In his address.
"The Jury is left to guess at the facts,"
lie continued, "nnd the situation Justifies
Hiiy Kuess that, they may huzurd because
lha scientists. Who ate supposed to be au
thorities In these questions that the laymen
bus not studied, have given the Jurymen
the widest possible ranne for a verdict and
has become responsible for any finding
.hat may be madu varying all the way from
guilty of inuiilei In the tlrst degree to the
ther extreme of not. Kuilly Ht all."
"I contend that n cummis.-lon of scientists
.laincd along medical lines would be able
. ,o form a very much more intelligent con
) luslun as to the merits of a given medical
iiiobleni than a Jury of twelve men who
know nothing tf the technical points in
volved save what they are told by the con
tradictory experts."
Department of IIchIIIi.
The prOMidcnt appealed for united sup
port of the pending federal legislation cre
.iilng a department -of health. He em
I' the need of vigorous action by
the medlciil fraternity as well as the pub
lic for a still greater crusade against tuber
culosis which he declared is the cause of
one-third the deaths In this country and
halfe of those who die .between the ages of
15 and IT. year.
Ir. Salter took occasion to deplore the
spirit of commercialism which Is creeping
In'o the practice of medicine. He declared
there is frequently a tendency to exploit
patients solely for the extraction of a

are frequently magnified by otherwise esti
mable members of the profession for the
sake of dishonest dollars. "A doctor, for
example," he said, "is called in a case of
simplo measles and Instead of telling the
worried mother the truth that the child's
Illness Is not serious and that the ease
will speedily clear up this unscrupulous
physician by play-acting and deliberate
falsehood will tell a frightened parent that
the child Is dangerously sick, that It may
develop eye trouble or ear trouble or penu
monia or cerebro-splnal meningitis or what
not, and on the strength of his deliberate
untruths will take advantage of the fam
ily's undue alarm as a basis for making
two or three visits a day, leaving quantities
of medicine which Is absolutely unneces
sary, and in some cases perhaps even
harmful. In th'.s way your unprincipled
and crafty holder of a medical college
diploma will run up a bill for twelve or
flftrcn visits, frequently against families
who can lily afford the expense; whereas
a conscientious physician would have made
but one or two visits and would have left
It for the family to call him again under
certain adverse conditions, and such In
stances of wantonly debasing the medical
profession, consecrated In Itself to aavlng
human life and benefitting human beings
Instead of viciously magnifying the sickness
of the race as a means of sapping Ill
gotten and . dishonest dollars from Che
pockets of those In distress, are all too
commonplace In this country today.
Moral Ohllaatlon on I'rofenalon.
"Instance upon instance of Just such
type of corruption might be called to mind.
In every community this unfair and mall
clous, means of .robbery, clothed In the gar
ments of eminent respectability, may be
seen stalking about town 305 days In the
year. And It seems to me that a certain
moral obligation rests upon the profession
as a whole, for the sake of Itself and Its
good name, to expurge this cancer of cor
rupt greed from its body. The public can
riot combat this form of thieving for thiev
ing it Is, pure and simple because the pub
lic In ' time of sickness has faith in Its
doctor and Is absolutely at his mercy be
cause of that confidence. In time this type
of unfair practice more unfair than the
game of the highwayman who puts a gun
In his victim's face and goes Into the pock
ets of the man whose hands are up, be
cause that robber's victim knows he's be
ing robbed must react upon the good name
of the medical fraternity and for that rea
son, If for none other, the medical men who
do stand upon the principle of fair play
ought to make concerted effort to eradicate
this typ-s of unscrupulous selfseeker within
their ranks."
Another evil which the medical profes
sion must combat, the speaker declared, is
the all too common tendency to recommend
or perform unnecessary surgical operations.
"In determining the necessity for an opera
tion the fee Is frequently the most Import-,
ant factor, and too often the patient's par
amount sympton compelling use of the
knife Is an enlarged bank account that can
be euslly drained," he said.
Commission Are Denounced.
The degrading practice of accepting com
missions was likewise attacked. Said the
speaker: "The blessings that hospitals are
capable of conferring upon humanity should
not be reduced to the sordid basis of com
mercialism, and yet this contemptible prao,
lice is becoming very much in vogue and
physicians act as cappers for them. This
Is a deplorable condition and needs rem
edying." The speaker declared that there are men
in the profession who lend their services,
gnd even falsify medical .facts, to woivk ujj
damage cases against corporations, and he
found a growing tendency toward the care
less nnd indiscriminate prescribing of med
icine for every trivial complaint. He ap
pealed for a broader fellowship among
rival physicians and the elimination of
petty Jealousies.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. May. 10-(Speclal.)-The state
railway commission has received another
letter from the chairman of the Maine
state railway commission, but It will not
for tlfe present at least give out this letter
for publication. In fact, the commission
has issued orders to the office help that
certain death arid destruction awaits any
one who even mentions that letter, let alone
dare to furnish It to the press.
The first letter received from the Maine
chairman wa in answer to the letter from
the Nebraska commission asking what It
thought of giving President Taft a tip
about who ihould be appointed to the
United States Supreme court. The Maine
letter writer said the suggestion was silly,
an Insult to the president and several other
things which he said he hoped the com
mission could understand. The Nebraska
commission wrote back and asked "why?"
to all these statements and also why the
chairman of the board had used the word
"I" throughout the letter when It had been
meant for the entire commission.
Weil, this second letter, which has been
under discussion by the "advisers" of the
commission for several day not only re
iterates what the Maine commission thinks
of the suggestion of the Nebraska commis
sion, but It explains that "I" was used, be
cause the letter was addressed to the chair
man of tho Maine commission.
The other letters which have been re
ceived from commission! over the country
are also suppressed for the present, aa C
W. Bran and Will Owen Jones have not
got together on whether It would be "eti
quette" to publish them. k
Sheldon Mar Ron.
It Is not among the Impossibilities that
Georg L. Sheldon will be a candidate for
the republican nomination for governor.
When he was here some time ago, Gov
ernor Sheldon said If he were a candidate
he had his preference In regard to the
office, which was taken to mean he would
prefer the senate. But K. G. Maggi, who
held the position of chief clerk in the ex
ecutive office, when Sheldon was governor,
Is authority for the statement that the
Nehawka man Is going to be a candidate.

SLPERIOR. Neb., May 10.-(Speclal.)-The
call Issued for a meeting Saturday for
the purpose of organizing an anti-horse
thief association was responded to by hun
dreds of farmers and business men, and
a rousing old meeting waa the result. After
much discussion It was discovered that the
thieving going on over the country wag not
confinedalone to the taking of horses, but
j that It covered almost every possible thing
.of value, Including cattle, chickens, harness,
j bicycles, corn, hay, etc. Taking Into con-
lderatlon these conditions, It waa thought
best to perfect an organisation which
would be a sort of vigilance committee
or good government committee.
W. A. Hyff was chosen chairman of the
temporary organisation and Mayor E
Bossemeyer, Jr., secretary. Committees
were appointed and work of securing new
members began with the result that nearly
100 names have been enrolled aa charter
members. It Is the intention of those In
terested to make It a county and an Inter
state association, as Jewell county la ad
Joining on the south and the farmers all
work together.
E. D. JJonahoo was elected chairman of
the association; Hugh Allison, secretary,
and W. K. Klrkpatrlck, treasurer. The

Hitchcock Ready
to File for Race
W. B. Price Comes to Omaha to Tell
Congressman Price Alone Has
'' 1 a''Show. -'
iFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May 10. (Special.) It Is evi
dent Mr. Hitchcock is willing to risk S60
on the chance anyhow. VV. R, Watson,
managing editor of the World-Herald, Mr.
Hitchcock's paper, has telephoned to Secre
tary of State Junkln for filing blanks, in
dicating that while In Nebraska Mr.
Hitchcock will file his name for the senate.
W. B. Price has not yet let loose ot his
S60, but he went to Omaha this morning
with the avowed purpose of asking Mr.
Hitchcock to get out of the race and permit
him to go il alone as the democratic candi
date, and thus save the Omaha candidate
the humiliation of getting defeated.
"1 am satisfied 1 will win the nomina
tion," Mr. I'rlce said to friends, "uo what
Is the use of Mr. Hitchcock getting into
the race and getting his feelings harrowed
up for nothing." I'pon his return Mr. Price
may have something to say.
In the meantime a might close friend of
Mr. Bryan asked the peerless leader to get
behind Richard L. Metcalfe and have the
thing over with. It was urged on Mr.
Bryan that If he said the word Metcalfe
would be nominated hands down, but the
peerless leader was not at that time making
any nominations. He answered, so it was
reported, in the same old way: "They are
all friends of mine and, of course, I can
take no hand."
Which la taken to mean that rather than
choose between god friends Mr. Bryan may
have to get into the running yet, and have
them all support him.

Board of Governors Hears Favorable
Report of Effort to Bring'Meft
West June Initiations.
West Point- cadets may be one of tho
leading feature of the Ak-Sar-Ben parade
this year. Strong effort are being made
to secure the visit of the coins and not
only are the senators and congressmen of
the state, according to the reports sub
mitted to the governors at a meeting In
the Loyal hotel last night, lending their
aid, but the interest of Senator Warren
and Congressman Hull, chairman of the
eenatn and house committees on military
affairs, has been aroused as well.
The Idea' Is that the cadets who will
muster about 500 will have a circuit ar
ranged for them nnponrlrg first at lVi
Molncs, then at Omuliu, proceeding thcncn
to Cheyenne and Kansas City. It wum
hoped that the colored cavalry stationed
at Fort I). A. RurpoII, AVyo., might al.-o
be permitted to figure In the fete, but
from the latest communication received It
is feared the military authorities will not
give their consent. It was mentioned nt
the governors' meeting that Motor General
Frederick Smith, tho new commander of
the Pfpartmrnt of vlie Missouri, Is show
ing every dcRlre to help the governors in
making this year's nffalr one of the mot
successful since the initiation of the move
ment, which has given nmahA such a
distinctive civic festival. The membfpfffiiii
committee reported that without any solici
tation 4.r8 numbers had fa'd their as
sessment for this year.
The first Initiations for i:ri nre expected
to take placo the first Monday in June and
It in stated thut the ceremonies will be
entirely different from last year.
The new button will bo rcadv In a few
days, tho design having been approved by
the governors. It Is a very pretty piece
of work and should have many wearers as
much for Its beauty as an ornament as Hi
civic association. The button Is in thn
form of a star surmounted by Nebraska's
