The legislnturo of 1834 lias prepaTed .
a surpriso for its coustituency and ren-
dercd itself illustrious ainong legisla-;
turesby its bill providing for tbu dis
posal of tho bodies of deceaspd pau
pers. Tho act is ontitled "an act for
tlie advanccmeiit of anatoinic-al scieuco
aud to prevent tho disturbing of tlie
remains of tho dead."
Thu title is a misiionier. It should
read, "an act to diiuiuUh tho expuuso i
of procuring subjccts for disscction for
inedical schools and imlividual irac-
titioners of tlie inedical professiou."
The first clausu of Section 1 reads as
follows : "Tho overseer of tho poor of
ny town or city and tho superinteiid-
ent of any piibliu iustitutioh of this
state, sliall, when reipicsted iu writing
by any practicing physician, rcsiileiit
of this state, deliver tho body of any
person who inay dio within such town,
city or public iustitution, aud rcquired
to bu buried at the public expcuse, to
such rcsident physician so niaking tho
tho request, to be by him nsed for the
adcancement of onatomical science."
The power of a legislaturo thus ar-
bitrarily to disposo of the bodies of
any of tho deceased citi.cns of thc
stato implics tho power to dispnse of
the bodies of any other deceased citi
zrns of thu state. So far as tlio right
or power goes they uiight as well have
dispned of thu bodies of tho inenibers
of the legislature of Id32 -at their du-
cease without any restrictiou what
evur as to wishes of thu victims or
thuir lac.k of means to provitle for their
own decent inte.rnient. Why not this
and why the other! Apparuntly it
was expediency which duteriuined to
what class thesu victims should belong.
It souglit for and supposcd it hail
fouml a clas utterly friemlless.
To tho popular niind this class of
legislation savors of barbarisin aml
can only be justified by tho law of diro
nccessity. Does such ncccssity cxist f
Tho last clausu of thu titlo and tho
last section of thu act seenis to imlicato
that tho leinains of the dead weru in
dangcr of being resiirrected for "tho
advanceinuut of aiiatoinical scieuce." Is
this a fact or is it only a corer and a
scrccn to hido the real iurpose of this
act t Who lias ever heard of the des-
ecratiou of a burying-groiind iu Ver
mont for tho last half cuntiiryt No-
body has, and nicn will not exposo
themselves to tho certain hazard ot
certain detection and tho severe pun-
ishiuent for body-snatching, when sub
jccts for "tho advancciiieut of anatom
ieal scieuce" can bo procured from bo-
yond the jiirisdiction of tho stato for
tho paltry siim of .:(! or t?I0. Hesides
who would bu so uu.just to tho inedical
piofessioii as to supposo that they
would engage in coiunierce with such
disrcputablu porsons, or would usu a
subject thus felouiously prociiicd ?
l!ut how is the advanceinent of aiia
toinical sciunco to le conserved by this
act 1 Is it expectcd that the avcrago
country physician will niako new dis
coveries in this departinent of scienco
which thu miist skillful anatomists
havu beun purstiiug for yuars, and tho
results of who.su skillful researches
havu becn givon to thu world and aro
to bo fouml distinctly sot foith in inoil
ical text books wheio hu who runs
may read ? No, thu vury best that
coultl be secuied would bo an oppor
timity for a iihysician to niako himself
inoiu faiuiliar with what is tlioronghly
uiiderstood and well taught in all our
Is thete in all this such an exigency
as justities thu swallowing iii of thu
individual right to bo gathered to ono'w
fathois in thu good old fasliioned way
of decent burial f The coniiunn iniud
will fail to suo this, aml for ono wc
should dislike to bu tho doctor who
shoilld lindertaku to avail himself of
this opportunity of thus procuiing sub
jccts for aiiatoinical exporiuieuts.
Thu desiro of decent entoiiibinent
has ever been inauifest in all races
duiiugall ages. Lacking this, it nsed
to be thoiight that one couhl not with
out vaiiuil wanderiiig.s, enter thu ru
uion of the blessed. Aml tho desiru is
no less stroug to-day than three thou
sand years ago. It i.s easy to say that
it matters little what becoines of one's
boly whun hu i.s dead. But. it will al
ways hu said of anothur's body and
not one's own. It may bu all souti-
nicnt. .Many of thc best things in life
aie only sentimciit imlced lifo would
bu a dnll atlair strippcd of sentimeiit.
Now the framcrs of this act concctlo
that hiich a disposal of tho body is ig
noininious. The act does this when it
inost hiiinaiicly excepts from its provi
sions such persous as havu scrved in
the aruiv and uavv of tho United
Statcs. It also inakes this fact vury
promiueut when it piovides as a peu-
alty for body-snatching impi isoumuut
for tittcen years aud a heavy liuu, ono
or both. Now heie tho stato proposos
to do itself, by law, what it lixes so
grave a penalty npon it citizens for
doing; ouly to savo itbelf the troublo
of diseutombiug, it steal thu duad
body bcforo it is buiieil "for tho ail
vanccment of tho scienco of anatouiy
aud to provent the disturbing tho re
inains of the dead."
I spcak adviscdly when I say stcal
ini), for tho stato has no moie property
in thu bodr of oueof its citizens who
has, becausu of iiiisfortuiio ofteutimes
without blanio conie at last to be a
public cliargo, tbau it has in your
body, uiy dear readcr, or in iuine.
Does it incaii .thus to Iovy n tax ou thc
body of thc deceased pauper to pay
for his own burial by removing tho ne-
cessity of burial 1 Is it thus that tho
"dead' is to "bury their dead f Is
this the charity which "sutlcretli loug
aml i kiud t"
If thu legislature of 1834 liad really
liad so niuch at heart "the advnnce-
nient of tho scicncu of anatomy, aud
the protectiou of thu remains of tho
dead from disturbancc, they uiight
havo reaclted that cnd by a legitiiuate
coursc It is possible that they miglit
havu been justified in disposing ofj
their own bodies after deceaso for "tho1
