WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE.
"Continuous Session" Talk Before ;
the Board of Education,
Dr. Dixon Opposes tho Position Taken
by the Other Physicians—A Com
The "continuous session" agitation
■which has been occupying the attention
of the students at the High School, the
teachers, the doctors, the parents, and, in
feet, the public in general, for the past
week or more, was finally disposed of by
the City Board of Education last night
As the readers of the Record-Union
are probably aware, the medical frater
nity, with a few exceptions, was arraigned '■
against the single or continuous session,
while on the other side were the students
and tho teachers. I
The doctors maintained that the session j ;
was injurious to brains in the develop
mental stage; that it did not permit stu
dents to eat at 'the proper time,
and did not then allow them '
time to digest what they
did eat. Tho students and teachers main
tained that, despite the theories of the
medical men, they were in good health,
and expected to continue so. They pre
ferred to go hungry, or to eat a hasty |
lunch, in order, by so doing, that they
might have the afternoon to themselves.
The settlement reached by the Board
of Education last night was a sort of com
promise. They did not exactly kill the
continuous session, nor did they vote lor
There was a large delegation of boys from
the High School present, and while none
of them attempted to electrify the board
with speeches, their presence had the
effect of bracing up those of the directors
who were supposed to be in favor of the
single session. But to offset this youth
ful array thero was also present quite a
delegation of medical men, among them
being Drs. \V. A. Briggs, Simmons,
Dixon, Parkinson, Fowler and Merrill.
Professor Atkinson of tlie commercial
school was also present by invitation.
The discussion was rather lively after it
had got fairly started.
When Chairman Erlewine called the |
subject up for consideration, Director j
Harrison asked if it were not a fact that
the board had established the continuous
session at its last meeting.
The Chairman said that such was tho
case, but that was no reason why the
matter could not be reconsidered. It had
been stated that snap judgment had been
indulged in by the board, and he thought
it no more than right that those who op
posed the single session should be given
a chance to be heard. Since the board
had established the rule, it had listened
to statements by several of Sacramento's
most prominent physicians, it had readl
the discussions in the newspapers, and
had heard from the students and teachers.
It was only justice now to reconsider the
Director Sherburn moved that the
order made at the last meeting be recon
sidered, and the motion was carried
Director Harrison moved that the re
quest of the High School students and
teachers for the continuous is-ession be
Then the subject was open for discus
Dr. G. M. Dixon was the first to ad
dress the board. The doctor rather sur
prised the other medical men present by
declaring himself to be in favor of the
continuous session. He said the medical
fraternity had made a mistake in con** i
founding fowl in the stomach with food j
in tho system. He thought it
would lie far better for the health
of school-children if they would do with
out food from 8:3o o'clock in tho morning
until W3O o'clock in the afternoon than to
eat a hurried meal at noon and rush
back to school. No person could study
on a full stomach. Gladstone, Poe,
Shakespeare and other great authors
never dared to attempt
ANY GREAT MENTAL WORK
on a full stomach. School-children them- '
selves could testify that in the afternoons I
after their lunch they were dull and it j
was only through will power that They
could concentrate themselves. During
the process of digestion the energies and
vitality of tho system were divided if
mental effort were attempted.
He considered it fallacious to
quote authorities in support
of a position on a health
proposition. In one part of the country
ft was declared that all drinking water
reservoirs should be covered in order to
keep tho water pure, and yet in another j
locality the medical experts say that all
reservoirs should be uncovered "in older
to keep the water pure and fit to drink. !
Authorities were good enough to fortify ,
one's opinion, but that was all.
In conclusion the doctor said that he !
believed the position taken by Professor i
Pond, the teachers and the students, in !
favor of tho continuous session, was right. '
It was a well-known fact that it required
two and one-half hours ordinarily to di- j
sest5 est a meal, and while the process of
igestion was in operation the mind
should rest—there should be no division
of energy—and in consequence it was far
hatter for the student to last than to dine.
Dr. Briggs asked Dr. Dixon a rather
pointed question. "If,*' said he, "it re
quires two hours and a half for digestion,
and during that period there should be no
mental labor, why should not the same
rule apply to studying after breakfast?"
Dr. Dixon, after a moment's hesitation
replied that he thought the same rule
Dr. Simmons next addressed tho
board, and he paid particular at
tention to the argument of Dr.
Dixon. He said his attention was
first directed to the evil of the single ses
sion some time last year, aud since then
he had given the subject considerable
thought. The more he looked into the I
matter the more thoroughly he became
convinced that it was ruinous to the
school children. He had seen his own
808 rush into the house at noon, grab j
whatever was nearest him on the dinner !
table, cram it into his stomach, and race
oft' to school ■sain. He had remon
strated with the boy, knowing ashe did
that it was dangerous, and a most certain
road to physical wreckage, but he learned
that it was not the boy's fault but that of
the abominable continuous session, with
its l_>-ininute recess.
AN ABSURD COMPARISON.
Dr. Simmons referred to Dr. Dixon's
application of examples of abstinence
like ■Gladstone, Poo, Shakspearo and
other great mento growing children as
In the one case, he said, the m d and
body is in a del "l-'pmcntal stage, .nd in
the other the minds and bodies are
already developed and matured. It was
nonsense to draw a comparison of this
kind. Continuing, Dr. Simmons said
that" the more particular objection
ne found to the school sv*.tem,
was the keeping of scholars
too long in their seats. In his profes
sional practice he liad had a large nuiu
berot cases brought to his notice where
Used in-MilDans of Homes-- 40 Years the Standard
permanent and serious injury had re
sulted from this close confinement of
schools. It would be a difficult matter to
find a perfectly formed child in the pub
lic schools to-day—particularly one -with
a well-developed chest. This, he was
satisfied, was all to be laid at the door of
the public school system now in vogue
Before closing Dr. Simmons paid his
respects to the persons who had been
harping on the "special conditions" pre
vailing in Sacramento, as regards climate.
Anybody, he said, who talk that way was
not well posted—he was a new comer,
probably, and not to the manor born.
The climate of Sacramento from April to
July compared irvorablv with that of
nine-tenths ofthe cities ofthe East.
Dr. Dixon took it upon himself to reply
to the matter last referred to by Dr. Sim
mons, inasmuch as he had said somethine
about climatic conditions. He said he
had lived in various cities in the East,
and would be emphatic in the declaration
that he preferred the climate of Sacra
mento to that of any other. It was cool
in the shady spots in Sacramento during
summer, but he thought that walking in
the sun at mid-day was too much for
Dr. Parkinson spoke briefly on the sub
ject under discussion. He said he would
withdraw all objections he might have to
the continuous session, provided that ses
sions wero interspersed with frequent in
termissions or recesses.
Director Harrison renewed his motion
for the continuous session. He said he
had children in the High School and
naturally felt an interest in tlie matter.
He had made wide inquiries and had
found that opinion was much divided on
the subject. Drs. Briggs and Simmons
were the only persons who had children
attending the High School who had ex
pressed themselves as opposed to the con
Before a vote was taken, Professor
Atkinson, ol" the Sacraniento Busiuess
College, was asked for his opinions. The
Professor was somewhat dilhdent about
putting himself on record, but, in an
swer to questions by the directors, stated
tliat he had tried the continuous session in
his school and had to abandon it. It was
a failure. He had found that better re
sults were attained when the students
were given the regular noon recess for
lunch. They always did better work at
the beginning of each session, too.
Chairman Erlewine informed tlie board
that during the oast couple of days tlie
High School students had obtained the
written opinions of their parents, and
they were largely in favor of the single
session. The Chairman did not tiiink
this a fair test, however, as many parents
would give such au opinion just to gratify
their children. He was opposed to the
single session aud would vote against it.
He thought, however, that the matter
could be compromised. The continuous
session advocates were willing to allow
thirty minutes for lunch, while the op
position wanted an hour and a half, lie
would be in favor of "splitting the differ
ence" and giving an hour's recess.
Director Tufts agreed with the Chair
man that an hour would be about right.
* UI HECTOR PAYNE CAVES.
This ended the discussion and a vote
was taken on Director Harrison's motion
favoring the continuous session. The
vote resulted in a tie, and tho Chairman
declared the motion lost.
The High School hoys looked crest
fallen, and so did their champion, Dr.
Directors Harrison and Sherburn, who ]
wanted the single session, gave vent to
their feelings pf disappointment mildly.
The latter said it looked very peculiar
that the wishes of two or three doctors
should prevail against the unanimous
demands of several hundred students,
teachers and parents.
Dr. Dixon button-holed Director
Payne, and atfa>r a whispered conversa
tion, the director wilted. He changed ]
his vote and called the matter up for an- :
It was now the timo for the anti-single
session advocates to look disappointed.
But Director Gardner settled the wiiole
trouble by moving that thirty minutes be
allowed at nocn lor lunch, with another
short recess at 10:'J0 o'clock. Tliis was
neither a continuous session, nor what
thedoctors wanted, but all hands accepted
it as a compromise and it was adopted

WHO 13 HE ?
An "Old Presbyterian" Whose Name
Should Be Published.
The following, from the Ventura Demo
crat, will be read with interest by Sacra
"Temperance evangelists, like other
people of their class, sometimes allow
their zeal to outstrip discretion and dis
tort truth. Mrs. Clara Hoffman, a tem
perance advocate of some notoriety and
much vaunted ability, lectured on her
adopted theme at Uuion Hall Thursday
night to quite an audience. In the course
of her address she stated, in substance,
that when she arrived at Sacramento from
the East she met an old Presbyterian
friend, who informed her that the Capitol
City was a place given over to sin,
drunkenness and the devil. Not only men
were to be seen reeling drunk in tho
streets, but misses—little school girls
were in tbe habit of tripping boldly into
the saloons on tbeir return from school,
marching up to the bar, taking their nips
and getting gloriously befuddled, and
that he had on one occasion counted as
many as twenty filing in and out ofa cer
"It is hardly necessary to say that tliat
virtuous Presbyterian coined a deliberate
and slanderous lie, and tlie wonder is
that a woman of Madam Hoffman's in- j
telligence would rehearse it to a respecta
ble audience. That kind of evangelism
would destroy any cause in the world."
In connection with this same matter a
leiter has been received by School Super
intendent Hart from a friend iv Ventura,
It was written on March 27th, and is as
"I was present at a lecture delivered
last evening in tlie < 'ongregational Church
of this city by Mrs. Hoffman, of St. Louis,
under the auspices of the W. C. T. U. In
the course of that lecture Mrs. Hoffman
stated that on her arrival in your city she
was met by an old friend, "whose name
she did not give, a Presbyterian min
ister, who informed her, among other
tilings derogatory of the good name of
Sacramento, tliat he had seen as many as
(I think) forty-eight women go into a
saloon in ono day. And that it was not
an unusual thing for school girls, tripping
home from school with their satchels oh
their arms, to go in, get their drink, and
then goon home. This minister may
easily lie located, as she said lie had been
in Sacramento but tive months.

of Sacramento City, and of tlie watchful
care of public school teachers and super
intendents. I cannot believe the statement
to be true. My experience in this State

was the intention of the dub to take a
trip through Yolo County, but on account
of the north wind all thoughts of reach
ing Esparto were given up, and a trip to
Stockton was at onco decided upon. A
; start was made at 8 a. m., with five men

! upper Stockton road was taken to old Elk
Grove, where one of the party, Mr. Mier,
left for Elk Grove.
Soon getting into the adobe roads, the
customary headers and falls were taken,
; but after passing Hicksville the roads
were in good condition.
Arriving at Gait at 11:45 a. m. dinner
was taken, after which, with an hour's
good rest, the trip was continued, taking

the last eight miles into Stockton in
forty-live minutes, arriving there at 3:50
After taking a trip through the city, the

They had dabbled in politics and were

excuse their murder, but it will probably

dealing with any demands made by the
Italian Government in connection with
tho Xew Orleans mob is clear and unmis
