ABOUT EXPERT FEES
Physicians and Lawyers Dis-
cussed the Matter.
liawyer Hanna Said the Doctors
Were Entitled to No More
than the Ordinary.
The legal fraternity were invited to be
present at the regular quarterly meeting
of the Whitman County Medical Society,
held Monday evening at the offices of
Drs. Coffey &: Johnston in this city. This
was done for the purpose of discussing
the law in the matter of expert fees in
the courts for physicians. The latter
feel somewhat aggrieved at the recent
actions of the commissioners in refusing
to respect the orders of the superior
court allowing each physician in ex
amination of insanity cases $5, and cut
ting it down to f 2 20. There is also
some dissatisfaction among the men of
medicine over the trimming cf bills in
smallpox cases. The attendance of
lawyers was small, only E. K. Hannn,
Robert Hanna and J.* N. Pickrell ap
"Legal Aspects Concerning Physic
ians" was discussed in an able paper by
Dr. W. W. Watkins of Moscow. This
touched extensively upon the law of
various states regarding the bond of
secresy between physician und patient,
and urged the passage of laws in all
states preventing physicians from com
municating them, on or off the witness
stand. Expert witness fees was also re
ferred to and a law advocated creating
a medical board of three in each county
to settle all questions under the head of
expert medical testimony, instead of the
Judge E. K. Hanna, from the lawyer's
standpoint, opposed the allowance of
expert fees to physicians. He said every
man owed certain duties to the state,
and tbe physician had privileges, such
as exemption from jury duty, not en
joyed by other citizens. He said the
present law prohibiting expert tees was
right. Dr. Dreucel of Palouse was the
only physician favoring Mr. Hannah
Practicing of unlicensed doctors was
discussed and $40 raised to prosecute
Thoee present were Drs. Stuht, Coffey
and Johnston of Colfax; Holzier of
I'niontown, Watkins of Moscow, Hall of

theria will be discussed.

Each Succeeding Day
of the Cash System
brings more forcibly to mind the idee* of force of
habit. Have you ever noticed that when the ther
mometer registers 101 degrees in July, a party of
persons entering a room gather instinctively around
the fireplace? Or when you have no butter on the
table, how often the force of habit will cause you to
reach for butter?
Every day in the week and every hour in the day finds
men and women in HinchlitTs C. O. D. Store who have been
under the force of habit of paying Credit prices for goods—
throwing down dollars where cents buy the same articles under
the C. O. D. system.
Only the other day this was forcibly illustrated when two
prominent citizens, one v business man, the other a newspaper
man as usual(?) loaded with "dough," each ordering goods.
The force of our prices astonished them so that it forced them
to remark, "There is a noticeable difference between Cash and
