IS FAITH CUBIST III COURT
A Woman Accused of Practicing
Medicine Without a License.
DEFENSE ASKS FOR DISCHARGE
The Prosecution Clones Its Testi
mony in the Cne Growing Out
of tire Heath of the Given Child
Judge 3Iills Orders a Continu
ance Until Friday.
An unusual air of refinement pervaded
the poMcu court yo-icrday alternoon when
the ca of Mrs. Bertha M. Sessrord was
called, and she was charged with prac
ticing medicine in the Bistrict of Columbia
without a licensa.
Mrs. Sevsrord is the Christian scientist
who was at the bedside of little Morgan
Owen, in East Washington, at tlie time
of hrs dearh from diphtheria, May 28 last,
and it is alleged by the prosecution that
she Informed the parents of the child that ,
she w.xs a physician; that the attending
puysiciau, Br. Hiizeu, was discharged,
and that ,no further medicine was given
the patient', prayer alone being resorted
to a's a means of cure.
The case was not finished yesterday,
but was continued until Friday, at 1
o'clock, when the defense will put la
Ureir lebUnioiiy, the principal point be
ing to show tiiat Mrs. Scssford did not
claim to have had full charge of the case.
Br- Kazen was firet placed upon the
stand, and testified to his discharge from
the case by Mrs Quick, now deceased.
Mr. Blair, the attorney for the de
fendant, in liis c-ros-exn:iiination, ashed:
Boctor.hadyou not pronounced Uie case
"No," answered Br. Hazen. "What 1
did say was that tlie case was an extreme

"Was Mrs. Sessrord there when the child

"1 did not send for either of thesn, and
ild not know they were In th2 house at the
On croFs-exnniinatlon, Mr. Blair asked
the witness who els" was there?
"My daughter, Mamie."
"Brd Mrs. Sessford do anythiug more for
your child than for your daughter?"
"Then your daughter helped?"
"Bid you think Br. Hazen had failed?"
"It looked that way to me."
Br. Waltli uext testified that he was at
the notice, aud there saw Mrs. Sessford
He -;iid he wasouiy tluie for five minutes,
and then left.
He further stated that Mrs. Sessrord told
hrtn she was a Christian scientist.
Mr. Blair -Bid she claim to be a doctor?
Mr. Baker -I objecr.
The court overruled the objection and
the witness answered that she had told
him she was not what he would call a
doctor; she was a Christian scientist.
Br. Walsh explained that he was a san
itary officer and it was his duty to call
un such cases, aud that betcld Mrs. Sess
ford if. the wcrst came to the worst the
coroner would have to be called iu.
Br. Frank B. Ciiamberliu was called and
suited that he went to the Owens house
and stopped in front to meet Br. Hazer:,
but Br. Hazen did not cornc out and he
did not enter the house. He met Mr.
Owen out.-idc, but cculd not well under
stand him. as hrs talk was so disconnected.
Mr. Blair- You know nothing of the treat
ment? Mr. Chamlierlrn No.
Mr. Baktr here submitted the case ot
"I Khali make a motion to dismiss," snkl
Mr. Blah "It is not known that the de
fendant hasprartlced medicine. Mrs. QuIck
Is dead, and that prevents her testifying
Mrs. Thomas, who is said to have been pres
ent, is not here, and there is no medical
treatment whatever shown " Mr. Blair
further said that no fee had been paid or
claimed, and that there was no evidence to
show that his client had done anything in
the nature ot a practice of medicine. Be
then called attention to seclion 13 of the
law under which the case was made, but
also read from section 12, which said.
"This act shall not apply to any
ise of treatment in actual emergency
nnr tp the use ot domestic remedies
without fee or remuneration ot any kind "
"If," said Mr. Blair, "'there was any
treatment at all. which is not shown, it
was ccrtainij a case of actual emergency,
as these two physicians were about to
perform an operation, which is onlv used
as u l,isr resort. There is no testimony
that any remedies were given, and It
they were given, that they were not
merely domestic. Therefore, I say the
defendaut is entitled to dismissal. I will
go further and say that if this net makes
the defendant amenable to the Jaw. then
a priest or clergyman called to a bedside
of the dying can be hounded out and
brought here hefore this court "
Mr. Baker, for the Government, summed
his case nnd answered the argument of
the counsel for defeudant. He said tho
testimony bhowed that Mrs Sessford told
one of the doctors that she was in charge
of the case and that the doctors had been
"My friend said 'no medicine was given.'
No, r.he physicians were not allowed to
come, and I want to say that a person
can die for want of medicine as well as
from administering It. "Biphtherla Is nut
an emergency as meant by the law ami
that Is too plain to be argued."
Authorities to show what constituted
practice of medicine were Quoted by both
Bides at great length.
"This case," said Judge Mills, ''is one
of great importance. This act is made to
cover all the people who practice the art
of healing A man would be amenable to
the law who cUhns to treat by laying on
hands. Certainly the mere presence of a
nurse would not show that she was in full
charge, I have some question in my mind
wnetuer tills Is mode out. for tills reason:
It is not shown that she prayed or that shu
udmlnirtered any medicine. I think thecase
is of too much Importance to let go. There
fore the demurrer Is overruled.
'I will continue" the case to Friday at 1
o'clock, and give the defendaut an op
portunity to controvert the testimony that
she was in full charge of the case.'"
Mr. Blair noted nn exception and gavo
notice ot intention to appeal the over
ruling of his de.murrer
Buring the hearing of the case Mrs. Scsg
ford, wjiois a btrlklngly handsome Woman,
1 sat with her husband, beside her attorney,
and quietly and calmly listened to the tes

3IKT DEATH OK THE THESTLE.
Elzernorc Jordau, Colored, Killed
Before His Brother's Eyes.
FJzemore Jcrdon, coloredj aged twelve
years, who lived at No. 242 Third street
southwest, was killed befciehis brother's
eyes on the Fort Uunyoii trestle, about a
mile below the Lcng Bridge, by a Eca
board Air Line train at 12:20 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. He met death instantly,
being dead when the train was stopped
on the ticstle within a few feet of the
Elzemore had gene over into Virginia
blacuberrjing, with his brother, a lud sev
eral years older than he. On thcir'return
trip they followed the railroad track, and
when the It tin yon trestle was teach ed
Elzemore persisted in walking upcu the
rat-k against his brother's wishfes.
Finally the elder brother ,gotTj6n the
trcttle, alto, and soon after saw that
trains we.te coming in both directions.
The older boy jumped to the ground and
saved his life, but Elzemore, overcome
with fear, did not; move, and was struck by
train No. 402, and thrown from the trettle
into a pool of stagnant water teujorfcwelvii
Trackmarter H. J. Mills notified the
coroner at Bosslyrr. Engineer Bavis had
charge of the locomotive, and Conductor
Newman of the train. No blame is at
tached to tiiem, however, as'tlicie is :i
sharp curve just heynnd't'hs scene ot the
accideut, making it Impossible to nee the
trestle until the train Is upon it.
There wap no excuse for the youths
walking on the- trark, as a good walk is
laid along one ride of the trestle.
Stopcock Order Construed as a Re
flection on Their Honest'.
Those Now in Ue' Claimed to Be
Better Than the New Ones
Iuferior District "Work.
At a legular meeting of the Master
numbers' Association held Tuesday night
ot their renins in the Builders' Exchange
building it was decided to take .such steps
as would be deemed advisable lo bring
about a tetter sanitary condition hi plumb
ing work done in this city.
The lect'iit order Issued by the Conuulv
sloners compelling plumbers to buy curb
stopcocks from the water department
(for the reason, as given by them, that
there was a great waste of water, due lo
leaky stopcocks, and unless this order
was carried out the plumbers would use a
cheap stopcock), Avas also taken up, and
it was agreed that such a reason as given
by the Commissioners was entirelyuncalled
for and reflected upon the honesty of the
MceriHd pluntcrs, who endeavor to carry
out the plumbing regulations as laid down
for thflr government.
It is a fact that the stopcocks intended
to bn used after August 20 are furnished
hi the cheapest bidder to the water de
partment. These stopcocks are of a new pat
tern, aud may prove inferior to the ones
now irr use, and which have stotid ihe teso
oftJai". There has not, the plumbers claim,
been a water service connected with the
public water mains or the city within the
last five years which has not been ap
proved by the official making the connec
tions at the main, aud for this reason.no
cheap stopcocks would have been iti-eil.
If an examination were made It wocld be
asily shown that the greatest part ot the
trouble lays, not with the stopcocks put
in by the plumber, but in the taps fur
nished by the District, and put on by their
employes. For every leaky or defective
stopcoek at the curb put in by the plumber,
it is claim-d, that, at least, five Instances
fan be shown of defective taps put in by
Tlie subject of the District doing plumb
ing work was also taken up at the meet
ing, and cases of work done by their em
ployes were shown to be vers bad.
The association feels that It can be or
great use to the general public, for whose
benefit the plumbing regulations were
made, and will In the future endeavor to
keep prominently before the people.

Into a contract with the trustees to build,

of lack of funds.

as his charges up to that time. The matter
of the amount due was then left.t4 arbi

Mr. Murphy from this point acted as
trustee for Mr. Locke. Certain notes were
