NEW YORK, Feb. 20.—Jubi

he had "come to give, not to sell,"
his tuberculosis remedy, scores of
women and men, sufferers from
the while plague, flocked to the
Waldorf-Astoria hotel here today,
hoping to see Dr. Frederick Franz
Frledmann, the young Berlin phy
sician, who claims to have discov

ease.
The scenes enacted In the cor
ridors of the big hostelry by the
white plague victims, many of
whom were In the last stages of
the disease, was as pathetic as
any ever witnessed in New York.
A raj- of hope shone in each
face ami when Dr. Friedmann an
nounced that he would see no
patients before tomorrow there
was disappointment, hut all ex
pressed determination to "come
hack bright and early in the
morning."
Dr. Friendmann told the United
Press correspondent that he hoped
to make some tests for govern
ment officials tomorrow. He
speaks but little English, answer
ing all questions through his sec
retary and his brother, Dr. Chas.
Friedmann of Colorado Springs,
Colo. The physician's manner is
nervous and animated. His blonde
'hair stands straight up and his
eyes are expressive hut shifting.
Dr. Friedmann came to the
United States at the invitation of
Charles E. Flnlay, president of
the Aetna National bank of New
York, who offered him $1,000,
--000 for a proof of the efficacy of
his cure. Finlay hopes the phy
sician will be able to cure his
tfoii-iii-luw of tuberculosis and Dr.
Friedmann will give him the
treatment but will not accept the
financial reward.
"My remedy is not going to he
a secret," declared Dr. Frledmann
today. "I propose to make It
known to all the world. I shall
explain the manner by which it
was created and the manner it
must be Injected.
"I have been working on the
cure for 14 years and in the last
80 months I have treated between
2,500 and 3,500 patients. How
many I have absolutely cured I
cannot estimate, but their num
ber has run into the hundreds.
"The remedy cures fell forms
of tuberculosis except such cases
as are quite hopeless—that is, on
the point of death."
The process is a slow one but
the first effects are to he seen
two or three weeks after inocula
tion. The time when an absolute
cure can be said to be effected is
a matter of months. The method
of administering Is 50 per cent of
•the cure.
"I want all mankind to benefit
by my discovery. Already I have
turned over some of my bacilli to
the German government and I am
very glad to turn It over to the
government of the United States.
lam not a mercenary. All I care
about is sufficient reward to en
able me .to demonstrate my cure
to the world."

HUSBAND CHARGES THAT HIS

CRUEL WHEN SOBER —
FORCED TO DO THE COOK
ING HE ALLEGES.
Kind to him when he was
drunk, and cross and cruel when
he was sober, are the assertions
against Mrs. Rachel A. Brautigan
by Phillip Brautigan, in filing an
answer and cross-complaint to her
suit for divorce. Furthermore,
alleges Brautigan, she never cooks
the breakfast for him in the
morning nor mends his clothes. In
fact, he declares he has to cook
and do the housework. She has a
dictatorial and tyrannical disposi
tion, he says.
Mrs. Hrautigan is plotting, he
charges, to get him so dissipated
that he'll be turned out in the
cold world as a drunkard.
The plaintiff filed divorce pa
pers a couple of months ago, as
serting that her husband was a
drunkard, and unwilling to sup
port her or their ten-year-old
son Phillip. - She said he did not
turn in enough money to
support her or the child, and that
she had to sell fruit and clams to
make a living. He was cruel to
her, she says, and threatened to
shoot her several times.
The couple were married Feb
ruary 1, 1902, and live at Gig
Harbor.

debt in 20 years from now the
people will have paid three dol

FOUND.
Mary I-ezner, aged 33, proprie
tor of a rooming house at 1120
South D street, was brutally mur
derer some time between noon
yesterday anil midnight last night
by being slashed almost to piece*
with a knife in the hands of an
unknown slayer. Her body waa
found this morning at 10:45 by
V. 11. Tyrcll, a roomer, who

the toilet. Passing the room
where Mrs. I^zner sleeps he was
startled by seeing the body on
the bed in an unusual position.
Walking in lie discovered that she
had been murdered with a knife.
The lied was covered with blood
anil the room indicated that a
fierce struggle hail preceded the
killing. Her throat was cut from,
ear to ear.
The police department was Im
mediately notified and Detectives
II tick aba. Officers Cornish and
McAfferty, and Harry Smith,
chief of the bureau of Identifica
tion, rushed to the scene in the
patrol wagon.
The body was removed to the
11 osa-ley-King- undertaking
establishment where a coroner's
jury will Investigate the murder

The officers failed to find any
clue that would lead to the cap
ture of the assassin. The house

roomers who were living there at
the time were warned to stay
away. The police are today bend
ing their efforts to find the mur
derer.

That the crime might have
been committed by a roomer who
had once quarreled with the wo
man is Indicated in Mrs. Ostby's
information that Mrs. Uezner had
often gotten into heated argu
ments with her roomers and that
she was constantly in trouble
with them.
Joe Wilson and A. W. Feder
meyer, who room on tho floor bo

midnight and did not hear any
unusual disturbances on the floor
above. Their room is located di
rectly beneath the one occupied by
Mrs. U-nzer. They wore still In

ered this morning, and stated they
knew absolutely nothing about the
case.
Both are 'employes of the St..
Paul Lumber Co. and have been
rooming at the house only a
short time.
