the heroism which the public never

out the excitement and glamor nc
coided lo It In war, nre the accounts
uf the manner In which the city of
Coquliiiljo, Chill, was saved by tho
boys of the Second Division of tho
I'nclflc licet, now here.
It was while the fleet was off Hint
port In January ot this year that
the aid of Uncle Sam's sailors in
lighting n sudden and furious fire
that broke out In the hotel, saved
the entire town, dried by the Bun
nnd untouched by rnin, from com
plete destruction by tho flames.
In the report of Cnplnln Klskc,
who directed the fire fighters, to Ad
nTlrnl Scb'ree many of the officers and
men nre mentioned fur conspicuous
bravery, and George 11. Whcclcr,
ship's fitter, first class, and William
Cowan, botswaln's mate, second
class, have been nwaided tho gratui
ty of $100 and tho medal of honor.
It was seven o'clock In the. even

ed out In the city, and Captain Klslto
sent Knstgnu Hccs Into tho city to
offer assistance In enso It was need
ed. The chief ot the lire department
sent back woid that h needed all
the assistance that could be given.
Tho Are and rescue parties at
once started for shore, and Captain
Flskc took charge of them. They
found the Hotel Hoyal, the largest
In Coqulmbo, n mass of fire. A par
ty of American sailors who were
found operating on "n three-foot
ledge, part ot the burning second
floor, wore ordered Into tho adjoin
ing house, as the ledgo would soon
Lieutenant Commander Chnrles W
Hughes had chtrgo of this party
and had managed to train three or
four lines of hoje on tho fire from
thn( point of vantage, unstnble as It
was. Them were Unity men In Mr,
Hughes' pally, nnd, operating In tho
house thill abutted on tho rear of
the hotel;9 Ihoy kept tho flro from
spreading 'In that direction. Had
he flro spread to this house It would
have spread liejond contiol the full
length ot tho wnterfiont. Mr.
Hughes lilmxelf took charge of tho
party nnd often risked his own llfo
by pulling ikiwn burning rafters on
himself. He happened to be on tho
ledge when It gave way and owed
his life to the fact that the lire be
neath had partly burned out. Tho
fight waged by himself und his men
on this sldo of the flro lasted two
hours without IntermUblon.
Meanwhile Captain Klske had
thrown n cordon of men around the
fire und drove nil except tho nctual
lire fighters from tho scene, taking
piccnutlnns against pilferers.
Midshipman Harry A. McCluro
was found by Captain Klske un tho
loot of the one-story house that
abutted on the rear ot tho hotel and
ordered him nud his party to Keep

for the final extinction ot the human

Bulled to present conditions on the

lists nre asking nfter listening to
the stiangc revelations Just made to

Congre.is here by Prof, K. V. llnsh-
ford of London, director of the Im
pel Inl ancer llcseaich, which war

hut ns tonic new form of life. There
Is no cancer germ. On tho contrary,
the cancer cell In A living cell, con
taining the power within Itself of
airpnrcntly Indefinite proliferation,
or self perpetuation nnd expansion.
Moreover. It It not nn embnontc cell.
but Is'n highly specnllizod cell.
Tho growth of cancer, tho director
tells his learned colleagues, Is en-
tliely and essentially different from
tho growth of embryonic tissues,
analogies with which were natural so
long as the growth of cancer Wis
put nn end to by tho death of Indi
viduals. This growth Is a unique
biological phenomenon, disobeying
nil the laws of growth by which or
ganisms and organs attain to their
specific dlmcnsluiiB. The cancer cell
possesses fixed characteristics.
What causes a normal cell to cvo
luto or chnnge Into a cancer cell?
This Is the great mystery.
Experiments on Mice.
Cancer, the congress was told, has
no analogy with nny known from ot
Infective disease. Out of 200,000 mice
bundled by the Imperial Cancer Re
search, not ono of them communicat
ed the cancer to nny other one. Nor
did any one handling the mlcu de
velop cancer though they sicnt ilas
lu the moms In which 10,000 lean
eel ous mice were kept In colonics.
Is cancer limited to human be
ings? No, says Prof. Uashford. It
Is common, contrary to the genoral
belief, in all vertebrates In dogs,
cats, mice, birds, frogs, fish, every
animal that has a backbone. The
trout is partlculaily liable to cancer.
It Is apparently ps prevalent lu sav
ago and scinl-clvillzed ns In the most
highly1 civilized rnces ot men. Can
the cauner lesions be reproduced, ex
perimentally, nnd can cancer bo
transplanted from one nnlmnl Xo an
other? Yes, says Prof. Uashford. It
has been done In tens ot thousands
of cafes by tho experimenters In tho
Imperial Cancer Research Laborato
ries, especially fioin mouse to mouse.
Is there any nge-tncldcnl-e In can
cer? Yes,- the director tolls the con
gress, nnd It holds good not only for
man hut for nil other vertebrate ani
mals. Tho liability to the disease
Is giontcst In early middle life.
Is cancer on the Increase? That
Is doubtful, says Uashfoid. Tho art
parent Increase, he says, Is duo to
moro caicful diagnosis. Tho liabil
ity, to the disease Is somewhat gicat
er In' males than In females.
Not Contagious or Infectious,
Is cancer hciedltary or congenital?
That question, says Uashford, has
not been settled cither one way or
the other for man. The experiments
with mice have bo far afforded no
cvjileiice-in favor of Inherited or con
genital Influence. In the llrbt 400
mice bred of cancerous parents,
which lived over six months, 30
cases nf cancer nVpcaied. Hut Its In
cidence obeyed the gcncrnl law of
ago-lncldcnce, not developing nt
birth. Them was, therefore, sayB
tho director, un satisfactory Indica
tion ct mi Inborn predisposition.
Cancer and tho predisposition to can
cer. Uashford says, may he regard
ed finm the 'mouse experiments, as
being acquired, nnd not hereditary
or congenital. Tho disease Is' not
contagious or Infective, nnd thero Is
