He Has No Standing in Case.
New York, Sept. 21 Dr. Fritz Fish

general, to-day ridiculed the contention
of Charles Goldzler. of counsel for Bur
ton W. Gibson, that he had no standing
in the proceedings brought for the re
moval of Gibson as executor of the estate
of Mrs Rosa Szabo.
The case of the prosecution against
Gibson on the charge of having killed
lira. Szabo has been strengthened by
the discovery of tjro witnesses who are
prepared to swear that the victim's face
was discolored In spots, as though she
had been struck heavy blows. They are
Mrs P. Rochetl and her daughter, Isa
bella, of Nutley. N. J.
Still another witness unearthed by De
tectlte William H. Moore, acting for the
District Attorney, is a man who saw
Gibson and Mrs. Szabo struggling in the
row boat before it upset and she was
drowned. This man made a memoran
dum of what he had witnessed In a diary
which will be produced in evidence at
the preliminary hearing on September

Scientists who have sacrificed years of

the study and cure of diseases hate de
termined upon more or less successful
cures for nearly allthe more dreaded
germ enemies of mankind. It Is pointed
out that the American army doctors
and officers of the United States Public
Health Sertlce, at the sacrifice of life,
found a fairly certain cure' for yellow
feter. The development ot the von
Behrtnc diphtheria anti-toxin In 1S3J Jiaa
brought about a fairly. certain means of
combating that malady: the Pasteur
antl-rablc treatment, which was intro
duced In 1SS9, has made possible recovery
from rabies and tetanus accompanying

of tuberculosis, and a recent discovery

smallpox, and other Infectious diseases

It Is safe to estimate that more than

KISSING IS NOT
Dr. Adolpfius Knopf,' Tubercu
losis Specialist, issues
Osculation was denounced in unsparing
terms as a means of communicating
dleeae by Dr. S Adolphu Knopf, of
New York, In a lecture jesterday before
the exhibits in connection with the Inter
national Congress of Htglene and De
mography. Dr. Knopf has won much
prominence because of his leadership In
the national antl-kissing crusade
"Danger lurks In the kiss."" he said
"Osculation Is a most risky practice. It
is as dangerous for sweethearts and
relatives as for other persons. Sweet
hearts can certainly show their affection
for each other In some other way than
kissing. But if sweehearts are bent
upon kissing, they should take care to
do so with the lips to the cheek. Even
that is bad enough, since germs often
find hiding places on the face as well
as on the hands and around the mouth."
Dr. Knopf, In his talk on tuberculosis,
took issue with Dr. Woods Hutchinson, of
New York, who stated In his paper on
tne birth of defectltes. Friday night, that
tuberculosis as well as the traits of
prostitution and other etils are nearly
aiwas innentea. ur. Knopf repeated
his contentions, made last midnight, fol
lowing Dr. Hutchinson's address, that
tuberculosis Js not generally, and. In fact,
rarely ever Is Inherited. Dr. Knopf Is
recognized as a leading tubercular-exnert
cf the world, he having been awarded the
International prize by Germany for the
btst essay on tuberculosis, a few 5 ears
Dr. Knopf declared that consumption
!s curable, especially In the earlier stares
ard that cures are being brought about
etery day, many of them believed to be
permanent. He substantiated, however.
the statement made by Dr. Kleber, of the
Federal Bureau of Chemistry, that there
is no known specific that will effect a
cure, and that most medicines, patent or
otherwise, that are being taken to fight
the disease really helps It on In its
"It Is possible to effect the cure of
working people even while they continue
at their work. In the earlier stages at
their homes, so that they may continue
to work afterward. Dr. Knopf's pre
scription for tuberculosis. is "fresh air,
twentj-four hours a day; plain and
wholesome food and lots of It: Dlentv of
good, sterilized water, inside and outside;
regular nours in, evertnmg; plenty of
sleep; a goodly amount of regular exer
cite; a cheerful disposition."
Dr. F. Shoemaker, special medical offi
cer of the Indian Service, gave Interest
ing newly prepared statistics concerning
consumption and trachoma among In
dians. He. declared the rd race are the
greatest sufferers of all Americans from
both of these diseases The ratio per
1.000 of Indiana who are consumptive is
5CS.6; of negroes. 4S0.3. and whites, 173,4,
he stated. Most people, he said, have
the belief that Indians art strong and
