When Kareken Yagjian. a young

in view of his Interest In Rosenthal,
would ask the New York board to take
similar action.
A curious situation confronts the
Mew York County Medical Society,
which has opposed the commercialism
of the turtle germ remedy. One of
the Friedmann Institute doctors, Julian
J. Meyer, applied prior to April 21 for
admission to the society, and his ap?
plication was favorably acted upon by
the Comltla Minora. This was beforo
Pr. Meyer's relatif ns with the Elsner
Friedmann treatment were known. Pr.
Meyer's name Is printed on notices sent
out to members yesterday, and Is to be
voted on Monday night, but It la aald
that an objection to the presentation of
any name would r? suit In Its resub
mtssion to the ("omit?a Minora.
Members of the county aoclety were
more than surprised yesterday to find
that all of the other physicians of
the Friedmann Institute were members
of the society. They are J. I?eaycraft
Hein, Harry Flnkelsteln. John S. Wa?
terman and J. W. Shelpert.

said an officer of the society. "Thla
la certainly a matter for the Board of
Censors."

BILL FOR WELFARE
POLICE IS VETOED
Failure to Include Excise Law
Enforcement First Objec?
tion Found by the
Mayor.
DEFENDS FORCE, AS USUAL
Says Measure Is Unnecessary,
as He Alone Has Eliminated
Almost All Graft?Fears
That It May Be
Revived.
Major Gaynor yesterday vetoed tne
bill creating a department of pub?O
welfare, to consist of seven commis?
sioners. In his message he gave theso
four reasons for the veto:
The fltizens' committee that investi?
gated the suojeet recommended taking
the enforcement of the law against
gambling houses, houses of prostitu?
tion and In regard to excise out of the
hands of the regular police force. The
bill, however, did not place the en?
forcement of the excise law in the
special department, in spite of the fa-t
that in times past that had been the
source of most of the police graft.
The board of sex-en commissioners,
remoxahle by the Mayor only after <i
trial for cause, would result in ineffi?
ciency and discord.
The bill re-enacted what the Ma-or
considers dangerous se?ti..ns of the
charter, and which he had caused to
become dead letters?thoss which maka
it the duty of the police to maintain
order in gambling houses and houses of
ill fame and i apOWOT them to enter any
p?a.?? arlthout a xx arrant on the sus?
picion of a householder that it may
be a house of such character.
He Haa Cut Out Graft.
Finally the Mayor said the bill Is un?
necessary, as he has eliminated m???1!
Of the graft from the Police Depart?
ment, and it would unnecessarily !,m
millate the police to have their povx, rs
curtailed.
The Mayor in his message said:
"1 feei constrained not to accept ?his
bill on behalf of the city. I ah.?. 11 ?ztCttt
the reasons in nunr-rital order.
'1. Th5 design <f the committee uf
em.nent citizen?- who examined into
the matter wa?- to ,-ik* axvax from lha
Police Department the administration
of the liquor tax law, the laws against
gambling and the laws concerning >??
male irostltutlon. and place the same
In a separate department. It his t.c-??n
the case here and in the cities through?
out this country that the keepers 0?
liquor piaras, n" gamMing places und
houses of ?prostitution pay ?poiitielansi
and to some extent polies officials, to
secure a lenient administration of the
i law in thsir tom .
'The sxpOSUTS of this condition from
time t<> time has had a had effect ?ill
the police? forcp here as a whole, al?
though its membership Is BO**S of a
j very high <>rd? r, and there is no better
l police force In the xx??rl?l. That exea
.a few BMUherS of the police force ?g.
tort graft, <?r are tempted t?> take it,
creates a distrust of the whole fores
by thogp who SXS affc-ted by clamor,
instead of thinking for themselves. It
was therefore thought best by the sr?i?1
committee to take the administr?t.? n
of the law resecting thes#> thing-i
away from the police force, and 1? I i
It, untempted and undisturbed, to pot?
form that which has always been it*
chief di tx - namely, to preserve out?
ward onler ami d?^cency. and prevent,
detect f nd arrest for the ordinary
crimes.
Fears a Graft Rex-ival.
"Rut this bill does not carry out thl.i
plan. It leaves the enforcement of tho
liquor tax law with the police force.
Instead of bringing it Into the prop-isel
new department, although th*? major
part of the corruption money paid to
police officials an?l politicians in th?
l?ast has come from that source. It
was stated on the hearing before mo
that the enforcement of this law was
left with the police for the reason that
I have established and carried out a
plan which has done away with sucii
corruption under It. While that la
true, such corruption may very easily
be rexlved hereafter. We have also
during the last few years done axxay
with most of the corruption from th?
other two sources. That might be al?
leged as a reason also for not turning
the administration of the laws In re?
spect of them over to a separate Osp
partment. If this thing Is to be dorn?
at all it should be completely done.
That Is what the report of the commit?
tee of citizens called for. This bill la
not In accordance with what the com?
mittee asked of the Legislature.
"2. This bill provides for a Department
of Public Welfare, to consist of a board of
seven commissioners, removable by the
Mayor only for cause after a trial. Thia
la contrary to the present scheme or con?
stitution of government In this city. The
board of seven members would probably
result in discord and Inefficiency. Our
privent system of single head? of depart?
ments to he appointed and removed by the
Mayor at pleasure was brought In for
grave cause. I know of no reason to
abandon It. Tt has worked well and haa
ne?, er been^abused.
"The Idea seem?? to be to divide the re?
sponsibility for the enforcement of these
laws That weakness Is to be deprecated.
It la much better to centre the reeponal
hlllty, and experience haa proved that the
place to centre It Is In the Mayor. The
people of this great city ought to be able
to elect a Mayor In whom they would have
full confidence and who would nelthei
shrink from nor shirk any reaponalblllty.
