Evolution of Surgery Produced Unde

ing at Theatre This Evening.
An address by Dr. Ferdinand Henro
tin. of Chicago, on "The Commerce of
Surgery" was the principal feature of
the opening of the 55th annual meet
ing of the Illinois State Medical asso
ciation in Rock Island this morning.
In taking up his subject Dr. Henrotin
took a retrospect of all trades in which
men expect proper compensation, and
then took up his subject with refer
ence to the physicians and surgeons.
He dwelt at some length on the ques
tion of division of fees between the
surgeon and the attending physician
or a commission given the family phy
sician by the surgeon whom he calls
in to perform an operation. The phy

as the surgeon and he makes up for it
with his commission, if he is given to
This is one of the questions of prac
tice with which the associations and
societies have been wrestling, and it
is one slow in the process of solution.
Dr. Henrotin says it is a natural out
growth of the evolution of surgery.
Many medical colleges. b,e says, are
paying particular attention to surgery
and turning out young men who are
adapted to surgery alone and know lit
tie about the practice of medicine s
it should be practiced. These men are
induced to adopt surgery as a spe
cialty on account of the large fees that
may be charged for the services. The
remedy for this practice, which Dr.
Henrotin deplores, is in having both
the physician and the surgeon proper
ly compensated. Then the physician
would have no reason to expect a por
tion of the surgeon's share and the
surgeon would have no reason to ten
der it to him.
In the surgical section, which was
held at the First Methodist church this
morning, there was a symposium on
the surgery of the stomach. Dr. Ar

The program this evening will be
given at the Illinois theatre, and this
will not only be open to the public, but
the cilixens of Roek Island are earnest
ly requested to attend. One of the
features of the evening is the address
by Dr. .1. W. I'ettit. of Ottawa, on
"What We Must Learn and Unlearn in
the Treatment of Tuberculosis." Else
where in this issue is an interview with
thi man who has made himself known
throughout the state as the founder of
the Ottawa tent colony, and some
knowledge may be gained of the valu
able information that will be imparted
to the public with reference to the
treatment of tuberculosis. Speeial ar
rangements were made for giving this
address in public, as it was believed it
would be of greater value to the other
citizens than to the medical profes
sion, as the physicians are all more or
less familiar with what is being accom
plished at the colony.
The annual address of the president
will be given by W. E. Quine, M. IX.
T- 1- D.. of Chicago. Dr. Quine is a
man of high education and something
more than the ordinary is expected
from him on this occasion. He is a
scholar and Is one of the men who are
anxious to hold up the profession a3 a
profession, and at the same time avoid
strife in the ranks.
