KANSAS DOCTORS IN COUNCIL
Tin; .Stale Medical Association Com curs. lit
Tnpiitu for a 'two l:ij-' session.
Topeku, Kas., Mas" lfl. (Speclnl.) Only
nbottt fifty physicians vi,re present at tho
opening session of the Kansas State Med
ical Association at lit preventative hall this
morning. The address of welcome was to
have been given by Captain Joe Waters,
but hp was unavoidably absent and Ills
manuscript was read by Dr. Ward, ot the
association. "Among our visitors are .the
young and old," quoth the captain's mantis
cript, "the Nestor and the Graduate, the
trained specialist, the studious, professor,
the learned author, the profound and suc
cessful practitioner, and I hope also, uho
delightful and beloved country doctor."
Whether or not the country doctor was
pleased at this setting apart of himself It
would be hard to say. A fnw of the cap
tain's other gems read as follows:
"Were you warriors, we would meet
you with Hags and greet you with the
blast of trumpets. A living fringe of child
hood would border the avenues."
"The knife of the- surgeon has been
stripped of Its terrors. The patient sleeps
during capital operations and awakes to
Ilnd himself dismembered."
"A Kansas doctor is an up-to-date repre
sentation of the state of his science."
Dr. O. W. Hogebooni, of Topeka, replied
to the address of welcome, buying, among
"Topeka is always at home to the peo
ple of Kansas and the people ot Kansas
are always at home in Topeka.
"Like the lawyer, the physician Is some
times regarded more as a necessary evil
than a benefactor. The medical profession
Is conservative and It Is not strunge that
men who have such responsibilities as a
Physician has dally should cling to what
has been demonstrated rather than dare the
chances of conjecture. If our progress has
been slow. It lias been steady anil sure.
It Is a greater victory to prevent disease
than to cure It. We are learning to keep
the foe at a distance."
The remainder of to-day's session was
devoted to the hearing of papers and their
discussion. The meeting continues over to
morrow, ending at night with a banquet.

It Causes the Western !.lnn Worry, ns It
May IIpet Alt tin- linns. They
Chicago, 111., May K More definite In
formation regarding the Canadian Pacific
boycott by the Trunk lines was received
to-day by the Western Trancontlnental
lines, and It In no way tends to relieve
the situation. Everything, In fact, points
to u continuation of tho trouble. The
Western lines are worried for fear the
complication will upset all the plans they
have worked so hard upon for regulation
of the emigrant tralllc nnd the Transcon
tinental lines fear that they will now bo
unable to put their passenger association
upon a working basis.
The direct cause of the boycott wns tho
refusal of the Canadian Pacific to with
draw all Its orders from the New York
market. About two weeks ago the trunk
Hues held a meeting it t which an agree
ment was reached, which would, It was
supposed, put an end to the tight
between the Canadian l'nclllc and the
Grand Trunk and put everything In a
satisfactory condition. Cmlcr this agree
ment the Canadian I'acllle differentials
were to be shown in the Trunk lino rate
sheets on the condition that the Canadian
I'acllle withdrew nil Its orders from the
territory of the Trunk lines and leave to
them the distribution of business arising
in their territory. The Canadian Paelllc
refused the conditions nnd Its tickets were
promptly turned to the wall. Now tho
real trouble will begin, for nobody has any
opinion that the Canadian Pacific will ac
cept the situation quietly. It will, without
doubt. Increase the number of Its orders
in New York, pay large commissions on
emigrant business and make n hot light
generally for its share ot business. It
will. In short, cause all sorts of contusion,
especially In second class business, from
the Atlantic to the Pacllle.
Omaha, Neb., May IC Until the formal
order mado yesterday at St. Paul In tho
Short line case, by Judge Sanborn, Is re
ceived, It seems Impossible to tell how far
or to what extent tho'rellitlanshlp between
the Union Pacific and tho Oregon Short
Lino Is affected. Under these conditions
and with somewhat meager service in
covering the order, ofHelals at headquar
ters were somewhat at sea as to Just what
the order contemplate!!. lowed irom al
most any standpoint tho conditions tire
such that It may contemplate any one of
four propositions. It may mean the pay
ment of Interest on coupons in defnult
plus the Interest accrued on the date the
properly goes to the new receiver, and to
accrue during the life of the receiver
ship; coupons on all llrst mortgages "n
the entire Short lino system, or coupons
plus interest accrued on the entire system
and to accrue during the life of the recei
vership. It Is believed that should the
American Loan and Trust Company at
tempt to pay oil the Interest defaulted
and taking the four propositions ns a
basis. In view of the uncertainty attaching
to the order. It Is roughly uppioxlmated
thnt the amount Involved In these prop
ositions will range from $O,0O0 to J1.2J0,Ci).

It Is believed that he and his supporters

A QUESTION 0F"pR0PRIETY.
DllTcrciit Views entertained of Senator
Ilatls-oii's Protest Against Olllcial lice-
iignlllntl of MorrlsM'j's Heath.
Jefferson City, SIo., Slay 10. (Special.)
There aro varying opinions legardiug the
prosp. it of the at Hun of the general as
sembly In taking recognition of the death
of Senator Slorrlssey and In appointing
committees to attend his funeral to-day.
Two of the senate committee "missed the
train" last night. They wero Senators
Brewster, Bepiililican, and .Morton, Dem
ocrat. Senator Brewster says he ran
two blocks to catch the train. .Maybe he
did, hut Senator lltewster Is stunt and
not fund of violent exercise.
As it matter of fact, while Davlsson, ot
Harrison, was the only man lu the sen
ate who hud the nerve to openly niter Ids
protest against public recognition of Slor
rlssey, tho majority of tho senators aro
Democrats and Democratic papers aro
oiitlelslng Davlsson for political effect In
public. In private they admit that the
character of the dead man was such ns to
justify his action. Had Slorrlssey died a
natural death under ordinary circum
stances his past might lui been Ignored
und forgotten. But eveiy particular of his
tragic end was calculated to thrnw ills
graco upon his parly, hlw constituency and
the senatu of which he was a member.
This Is the formal protest which Senator
Davlsson filed with the secretary of tho
senate and which he this morning insisted
should become a part of the Journal.
First Olllcial position should bo no
cloak to give urimo respectability.
Second It is contrary to good public pol
icy and morals for the Mate to recognize
at public expense and by a vote of Its rep
resentatives any man of bad character.
Third An olliclnl recognition of tills
character makes lu the minds of the young
licentiousness respectable, vice honorable
ami brutalliy legitimate.
Fourth This senate should be courage
ous in plueing the stamp of disapproval
und indignation upon a course of life such
ns the late lamented senator led.
