A Happy and Prosperous Year.
The reports made by the officers for
the year were very gratifying, and
showed that the club has in the last
year, under President Tillinghast's ad
ministration, accomplished much on
various lines of activity. During the
evening Eugene Petersberger of Dav
enport, was elected t3 membership,
and the applications of others referred
to the directors to report.
SuKKritt Internal Censorship.
Following the election of officers, the
retiring president, B. F. Tillinghast,
made a fitting talk, in which he refer
red to the work of the club in the year
just closed, and of the possibilities of
the coming year. At the close of the
business session President Tillinghast
introduced W. B. Mclntyre, who gave
one of his entertaining talks. In the
course of his remarks, Mr. Mclntyre
suggested the propriety of a censor
ship on the newspapers, but emphasiz
ed the fact that such a censorship
could be successful only when con
ducted by the newspapers themselves.
It must come from within and not
from without. The press was the great
agency for good or for ill in a com
munity according as it was conducted,
for the press was the great instru
mentality in the molding of popular
opinion, and he congratulated the tri-
city press as represented In the'elub
on the elimination of personalities or
personal feelings in editorial controver
sy, for notwithstanding to what ex
tent editorial sentiment might differ in
the discussion of political questions or
matters of public policy it was refresh
ing to know that there was a common
bond of fellowship, a fraternity below
which all differences sink as was ex
emplified in professional gathering of
The Spirit of the True l'reaa.
President Tillinghast assured Mr.
Mclntyre that the spirit of the true
press was as broad as the universe. It
knew no creed and respected and rep
resented all forms of religious denom
ination. Its object was to conscienr
tiously and courageously represent
sentiment and thought, and to stand
for what was best in humanity's cause.
W. F. Eastman of the Moline Dis
patch, spoke in the same vein. He be
lieved that the tri-city newspapers as
represented in the Tri-City Press club
stood for the higher order of journal
ism, and it was this spirit of fraternal
isra that had much to do with making
it so. Still he felt that the newspapers
might go still further, not exactly
through the establishment of a pro
fessional censorship, but by common
agreement In the matter of discrimina
tion as to just what is fit to print and
what things in a community that con
tribute either to the betterment or the
detriment of the society should be en
couraged or condemned. The newspa
per actuated by high moral motives
through fearless espousal of the right
principles could accomplish most any
thing, but the one that was moved en
tirely by its own personal feelings had
little influence. The papers represent
ed in the membership of the Tri-City
Press club stand for these higher
Accomplishments of the Year.
Robert Rexdale spoke of the accom
plishments' of the past year, stating
that the preservation of the Daven
port homestead on the island, while
perhaps more actively and properly
undertaken by another society, was in
his judgment due as much to the agi
tation originating in the Tri-City Press
club and worked upon by the commit
tee of this organization as anything.
Mr. Rexdale, in conclusion, recited one
of his original poems.

Father Mackin's attending physician in
his last illness, and during the direct
examination gave proof of the detail
surrounding" the sickness of the priest
and the progressive steps of the dis
case. The progress or tne ailment
from its Inception, through all the sue
cessive stages of gradual decline and
until the final stupor coma and deati;
of Father Mackin were presented te
the jury. The questions were present
ed in the greatest detail, and the wit
ness was called on to recount even
change In appearance from visit to
visit, every apparent improvement, ev
ery bit of conversation, with the top
ics, manner, and as far as possible, the
i exact language of Father Mackin.
Indicate Their Theory .
The cross examination was conduct
ed by John T. Kenworthy, and in the
questions asked the witness, he fore
shadowed the theory of the contest
ants as to the medical phase of the
case. Briefly stated, it is that the
character of the disease with which
Father Mackin was afflicted and from
which he died, pernicious anaemia, was
one which impoverished the red coi
puscles, of the vital elements of thi
blood, and that its characteristic effect
is to devitalize the mentality an.i
cause the patient to become less abk
to think, to reason, and to form just
judgments. A large part of the crosr
examination was directed to this theu
ry by means of hypothetical questions,
and Mr. Kenworthy sought to commii
the physician to this opinion. Dr. Mc
Carty throughout the ordeal of the
cross examination was calm and de
liberate, and seemingly sincere aui
frank in his answers, admitt:ng to
certain extent that there might b'
some truth in the theory of the con
testants as to the case.
. Warn Called at Christmas.
Dr. McCarty stated that he was edu
cated at the University of Georgetown
where Father Mackin also graduated.
He was first called to-see the priest
Christmas night, 1904. and was then
Informed that Father Mackin had beer,
to Chicago and consulted Dr. J. B.
Murphy, who diagnosed the case as
pernicious anaemia. He detailed thr
symptoms of the patient, and said that
upon a thorough examination he be
lieved the case to be properly diagnos
ed in Chicago, and that a subsequent
examination of a portion of blood from
Father Mackin's finger tips absolutely
confirmed the diagnosis. He testified
that on his first visit he felt that the
case was an incurable one, but did not
so inform Father Mackin. He told ot
the prescriptions and their intended ef
fect, stating however, that the disease
is practically incurable, though varying
in duration from one to two years with
proper medical treatment.
Priest Always Hopeful.
Dr. McCarty stated that - Father
Mackin, up to the last week or until
the last stage of the disease devel
oped, was always hopeful of a perma
nent cure, and continued in his usual
happy, jovial frame of mind, talkative,
and reminiscent. He said that during
all of his visits he considered Father
Mackin to be of sound mind, and that
he saw nothing in the patient's appear
ance, conversation, or actions that
would lead him to believe otherwise.
Under cross examination Dr. Mc
Carty stated that he had had In pri
vate practice two other cases of this
character, and that in hospital work
had seen a number of similar cases.
He stated that the disease consists of
a lack of, or decrease in the number
of the red corpuscles in the blood,
which is the vital part of the blood.
When these became sufficiently reduc
ed, the patient dies from exhaustion
The symptoms indicated are paleness,
pallor, lemon colored hue of the skin,
weakness, shortness of breath, stom
ach trouble, abcesses in the ears or
other parts of the body, swelling or
puffing of, tne limbs, and later stupor
gradually-growing deeper and deeper
until complete coma develops and
death ensues. The progress of Fath
er Mackin's illness, he said, was rath
er slow at first, but developed rapidly
just a week before he died. .
Mentality Not Affected.
Dr., McCarty said that the patient's
mentality is not . necessarily affected,
particularly in the earlier stages, and
that in Father Mackin's case he could
not see any difference in him, men
tally, at any time during his illness,
until the last few days. He admitted,
however, that the condition of the
blood necessarily did have an effect on
the nutrition of the brain, and in con
sequence must have some effect on the
mental powers of the person afflicted,
but insisted that only toward the later
stages of the disease could any . such
effect be seen. He declared that' even
though the blood might be impoverish
ed to the extent of four-fifths of its
normal, vitality,' the mind might' still
be clear and "bright, - the Judgment1

n's blood, but stated that from his
observation of Father Mackin's ac
tions and general appearance, he was
lietter able to judge of the patient's
Claim AVltnew tinned.
Much stress was laid on the fact
that Father Mackin had had several
tainting spells before the physician
vas called, and Dr. McCarty admitted
that usually these were symptoms to
ward the latter stages of the disease
and were generally followed by coma
ind stupor. Mr. Kenworthy sought to
show that the witness was biased, be
cause while he gave the counsel for
the proponents all the information pos
sible, he refused absolutely to divulge
a single fact to the contestants. Dr.
McCarty admitted that he had declined
to talk with the attorneys for the con
testants, on the ground that he con
sidered it improper to do so', as he was
employed by the family to attend Fath
er Mackin, and to them alone would he
respond in this case.
Other Ph)-alelan Tentlfy.
The examination of .Drs. Arthur R.
Edwards of Chicago, and James J. Mc
Guinn, also of Chicago, and of Andrew
Coleman and John Murrin, both of this
city, took up the time of the morning
session. Their testimony showed that
ihe condition of Father Mackin's mind
at the time ot his. death was, in their
opinion, as sound as it had been at all
times previous. .
