He spoke as follows-
Ountlonipo of tl Wmtarn Academy of llinwu'
li Is my pleasant duty tonight a duty
none the less agreeable that I am a
confirmed believer In alloptthy. to bid
you on Of half of tbe ollli'lnU anil citizens
of Kock. Inland, a cordial welcome to tbe
hospitality of this city. It would be a
more agreeable duty if there were more
of you here and more here to welcome
you, but you are none the less welcome
because your numbers are few. The ad
dress I bare prepared Is suitable only to
a large body of men such as I expected,
and would not be appropriate under the
circumstances. I will content myself,
therefore, by simply calling your atten
tion to some of those features of this lo
cality which will in in inter to your enter
tainment and enjoyment while you are
with us. It is not my purpose to adver
tise our city but to act merely as a guide
to the many point of interest here,
which will well repay a visit from you.
We are proud of our city, proud of its
location, proud of its surroundings. We
do not claim, like Mt. Joe, Mo., to he tbe
exact geographical centre of the United
Mtales, and hence we are not an aspirant
for tbe World's fair; but we do claim to
be a centre in a very Important sense, for
we happen to be situated almost equi
distaut from all tbe great commercial
centres of the west and northwest with
in a night's ride of them all, and con
nected with all In direct communi
cation by rail, and as to some by water
also. We do not claim to have found
here tbe elixir of life, but we do claim to
have discovered a more potent rlixir
man ir. mown-M-quaM will ever
squeeze out of the viscera of brutes the
elixir of good health, for we enjoy tbe
dUtinction of being one of tbe bealtbiest
cities in tbe union. This, however, is an
advantage which may not strongly ap
peal to a profesHion which thrives on
It is a matter of regret tbat our busi
ness streets should be in such an unsight
)y and impassable a condition just at the
time or your vi9it. Iiut you will recog
nize that these ugly piles of sand and
dirt, these obstructions, as analagous to
these unsightly eruptions which some
times appear on the surface of the humin
body, inconvenient and uncomfortable
while they last, but signs usually of a
vigorous vitality and prophetic of a bet
ter condition in the future. Tbey show
we are not dead, anyhow. If, with
drawing from our injured streets, you
shall see fit to retire to the heights of the
beautiful bluft wbirh skirt our homers
on thb south, you will obtain there a gen
eral idea of our topography and will ap
preciate why It is we think the lines have
fallen to us here in very uleaxant olaces
You will see at your feet a city of some
15,(100 population closely bordered on Its
eastern boundary by another city of
almost equal size ami importance. The
two are In all material respects one. and
we believe the time not to be far distant
when they will he one in name also,
brought together in ahnppvand prosper
ous union. .Nothing keeps them apart

to which should be the groom and which

borders of one to tbe eastern borders of
tbe other, a distance of four miles, they
are washed all the way by the waters of
tbat great river which divides our repub
lic in twain and bean upon lis bosom tbe
commerce of ten states. You will bear
in mind that the river here runs east and
west contrary to its general direction, but
at tbe western limit of the city its on
ward course Is broken by a group of
picturesque islands, and there it makes
one of its sudden turns, flowing thence in
a southwesterly direction nn its journey
to the sea. On the opposite shore is
spread out the mint lieautiful city in
Iowa, and one of the largest, affording
with Its wooded blull and varied archi
tecture, softened into euchantment bv

Mrs. F. W. Gould sang with her ac
customed charm, "Answer," and was re
called, the lady gracefully acknowledg
ing the compliment.
DR. HOT SB'S ADDHkVB.
Dr. T. S. Hovne. of Chicago, presi
dent of the societv. then made his annual
address to the society. It was very ex
haustive and exceedingly able, and a syn
opsis is published.
Custom demands, he said, that the
president of the society address his con-
ferers at the beginning of the annua) ses
sion in order to present such suggestions
ss may seem pertinent to tbe occasion;
and "I can assure you that It is with dif
fidence not entirely devoid of pleasure,
that I arise before the citizens of this
beautiful city to discharge the duty ex
peeled of one holding the highest office
in the gift of the academy. It is es
teemed a great honor to be chosen pre
siding officer of this honored represents'
live body, and thanks are due you and
are fully given."
We meet once more as the academy to
exchange thoughts, opinious and expert
enre, and the subject to which I invite
your attention and thought is one which
has occupied my entire life since leaving
a classical college, and that is, "Tbe
Homeopathic System of Medicine." Tbe
administration of medicines for tbe cure
of disease has always interested every
class of society in fact, next to tbe sc
cumulstion of wealth it has occupied the
minds of the rich as well as of tbe poor
Dr. Good suid: "Drugs have already de
stroyed more lives than war, pestilence
and famine combined. Dr. Hufeland
said: "More harm than good is done by
physicians. Mir Astley Cooper said
"Tbe science of medicine is founded on
conjecture and improved by murder.'
Numerous other quotations might be giv
en, showing what doctors . themselves
thought of drugs before tbe age of home
opathy. The subject of my discourse is
certainly one that you have heard of, for
theTe is hardly a merchant, lawyer or
citizen in any corner of this broad land,
that has not looked with interest upon its
benign influence, and everywhere it is
represented by one or more enthusiastic
Of the father of this system of medi
cine you possibly may not have heard, for
his long life ended nearly fifty years ago.
Samuel Hahnemann was born at Meissen,
Saxony, on the 10th of April, 1755, being
the eldest of a family of ten children.
His parents were quite poor, but were
people of taste, and surrouuded them
selves with such comforts as they could
afford. His fslber was a painter of
Dresden china, and wished his son to
follow in his footsteps. Hahnemann
chose the study of medicine, and was
gratuitously afforded all the advantages
of tbe college in tbat city, and afterwards
graduated as a doctor of medicine at
Erlangen in 177D. From tbat year up to
the time of his death, be devoted bis days
and nights to the practice of medicine,
and the writings of various treatises on
medical subjects. While at work in his
laboratory, he discovered a new salt of
mercury, known as Mercurius Solubilis
Hahnemann!, which is still used by old
school physicians, especially at the St.
Louis hospital, Paris, as being milder and
more efficacious. This was in 1784.
about the same time that be published
his monograph on arsenic, a work that
has been greatly praised by cbemsists and
physicians, anil has been extensively
quoted by Christianson and other toxicol
ogists. In 1790, while dwelling in Leip
sic, he discovered the reason why cincho
na, the Jesuit powder, cured ague, and
that was because it produced in the
healthy body symptoms similar to those
of ague. It was in 1796 that he an
nounced tbe doctrines of homeopathy,
and attempted to demonstrate its truths
to his colleagues, and then his troubles
really began. Tbey assailed his private
character, and scoffed and denounced his
principles. He was so persecuted that be
had to leave Eoenigslutten and other
places. In the year 1889 the same class
of physicians continue the abuse, while
thev quietly absorb some of bis remedies
and triturations. And what was this
wonderful discovery that raised every
man's hand against him? Sirailia simili
hua curantur. or, translated, "like cures
like;" or. to Rive it in Hahnemann'a
words: "In order to cure gently, ouicklv.
certainly and endurlnglj, vou must in
every case of disease choose a remedy
that is itseit capable or producing a com
plaint like the one it is to cure." It was
from his careful study of cinchona and
other drugs.tbat he was able to formulate
the law. that symptoms which were pro
duced by these, druus in a healthy person,
could be cured by these? agents when pres
ent in a diseased person. And it is by
this experimenting with new drugs in
health, not disease, that the homeopathic
physician knows precisely iion what
structures they act specifically, and
what symptoms they produce. Tbe
greatest book and one which will
endure to the end of time, was published
bv Hahnemann in 1810, and was called
the Organon. a work in which all the
laws of Honxpnathy are clearly set forth
This good man after enunciating his
discoveries went about doing good, and
notwithstanding his trials and poverty
lived to the age of eighty-eight, dying in
Pat is the last of May. 184:1. Previous to
Hahnemann's discovery all was uncer
tainty and conjecture in medicine; the
piling or theory upon theory, and by
pothesis upon hypothesis continued until
the physician was left utterly powerless
in known as well as unknown diseases.
Blood-letting was a remedy for every-
tning, ana death from bleeding was of
It is customary and pleasant upon oc
caaions like the present to look backward,
and take a survey of the road over which
we have traveled. Comparing the pres'
ent status of homcrpathy with its stand
ing in tbe state of Illinois in the year
lo-io, just before Hahnemann s death, we
nnd that about two hundred doctors in
the world, and only one physician in
Illinois had embraced its doctrines and
practiced it. German was an almost un
known tongue, and there was no trans
lations of the inspired writings. Today
oyer six hundred and fifty disciples are
at work elucidating its tenets at tbe bed-
aide. The unthinking and captious critic
might reply, that at that early date, Illi
nois nau a very sparse population while
today she has over three and a half mil
lion people. Tbat is very true, and to be
exact. I make tbe statement tbat in 1840
Illinois bad one homepathic physician to
470,000 people, while in the year of our
Liord 1889, she has one practitioner of our
school to every 5,400. Michigan, which
la considered tbe banner state, has one
to every 8.800. and in 1840 there was but
a single prsctitioner of our faith in the
state. Is it possible that homoepathy
should have so increased, and so long
t neany iuu years) survived tbe kicks and
buffetings of its enemies had not its
founder built iu laws upon foundation
of everlasting troths? '
The beneficial effects or dannemann's
discovery has not been con Ined to the
homoeopathic scnooi. a. gooa example
goes a long way, and the a Iopathic sys
tem of medicine has been ideally modi
fled and improved by : the unacknowl
edged, but irresistible infla met of the
little pill dispensers. . isiee ling became
rarer and rarer - as the people became
educated, by watching the skillful
homoeopath, handling without the lancet
the alarming cronp, tbe deadly typhus
and the fatal pneumonia.' The disgust
ing and nauseating compout ds were made
more palatable, or were abandoned Tor
tbe sugar coated pill, none the less harm
ful, however, for within the thin coating
ot sugar the deadly alkaloid was em
ployed. Our opponents magine tbat
our great success was somewhat due to
tbe pleasant manner of administering
drugs, and not to any inbert nt virtue in
the infinitesimal dose itself, entirely ig
noring the fact tbat each remedy was ad
ministered in accordance 'nth certain
well defined laws in fact was always
given for symptoms simi'ar to those
which it would produce on the healthy
body. So tbey imitated this and still did
not greatly succeed in letsentng their
death rate. Hahnemann wtis sneered at
as a mere symptom, a toloist, because
he maintained, that when any foreign
agent assailed the vital cenir -a, tbe effects
were immediately radiated t the circum
ference in the shape of symptoms, And
these latter were to bf. care 'inly weighed
and prescribed for. UnforU nately, there
are a few half hearted home eopaths who
dislike to be called symptom hunters.
Hahnemann discarded Nosology, because
he contended that it led t a routine
practice in the great majority of cases.
The allopathist cannot uie the expe
rience of the past, for all is uncertainty,
especially in therapeutics, while the
homeopath can use without fear the ex
perience of his predecease rs, for the
symptoms of a drug do not change with
the seasons or with the years. Our
allopathic friends, having no certain
guide for the administration of a drug,
are groping in the dark. It iao mo times
stated tbat the allopathic pn scription of
today is a vast improvement on that of a
century ago. Some one wh has looked
the matter up says, this it an error, if
blood letting is left out of the question.
Hanneman said: "That no medicine
should be given to the sick which has
not first been proved upon those in
health." If it is a fair question, how
many of our druggists have proved their
remedies upon themselves before pre
scribing for the sick? Hannemann re
commended: "That only one medicine
should ever be given at once." Does
tbe druggist comply with this law, or
does he make combinations mixing his
new remedy with some half dozen older
ones, whose virtues are more or less un
derstood? Let those who use such pre
parations study it out for themselves.
Hannemann iuvited everyone to study
his doctrines. His followers of today
repeat the invitation to all who are labor
ing in the dark. Investif ate ye who
doubt, and you will rind th it there is
more in it than was ever dt earned of in
In 1836 Dr. Fleisrhman t eated in the
Vienna hospital 752 cases ol cholera; of
these 48S recovered, and 214 died or
one in three. The allopathic mortality
was twice as great two ir three. In
Naples, in 1884, the allopall ic mortality
in this disease was over 80 per cent
10.S03 cases -and 5.385 deaths. Not
very much improvement in ti e treatment
of this disease in fifty year 4.
The homeopathic loss in the yel
low fever epedimic of 1873 was 5 per
cent; the allopathic loss tt Memphis
was 30 per cent, at Chattanooga 51 per
cent., at Vicksburg 20 per cent. In
New Orleans the homeopntin mortality
was 5 Cths of 1 per cent. Tl e Southern
Homeopathic Relief Associati in reported
5,640 cases, with a moriali y of 5 and
3-10ths per cent. Dr. Kell gg. of New
York, when examiner of the Homeopa
thic Mutual Lift Insurance company,
made the stateme.it. which was never
contradicted, that 4.071 allopathic phy
sicians reported 73.802 death i, while 810
homeopaths reported 8,116. this showing
that the allopath loses by death annually
more than seventeen patient, while the
homeopaths lose only ten.
Tbe one thing tbat has distinguished
our school from all others is t ic study of
materia medica, and tbat is what has
given us our superiority. Have we not
of late neglected this important branch
for the various fads of the day? The
rapid magical cures, which were so com
mon in tbe early part of the century, and
which gave homeopathy its start, have
grown rarer of late Oceanic nally, dur
ing a wide sweeping epidemic, our school
awakens to tbe importance of the occa
sion, and then some really excellent work
is performed. It really seeim as if it re
qnired some malignant epidem c to arouse
the physician from bis lethargy.
Considerable has been said about the
union of the two schools. v ;n some of
llanoemann'a associates tried to bridge
over the chasm which aeptrates the
homeopathist from the allopsthist. As
we are not prepared to surrender the
three essentials of homeopaths the indi
cation, the remedy and the doe and the
other side are not willing to aecept them
no union will result. The editor of tbe
S'uthfrn Journal of Homeopathy very
wisely remarks: "We do not believe tbat
any agency, short of a special dispensa
tion of divine providence, ciuld bring
the allopathic lion and tbe homeopathic
lamb to lie down together in teace in the
sweet green pasture of medical unity
where thev could drink from the streams
of fact, flowing from tbe fountain of
truth, each the equal of the ither, both
the servants of b umanity."

THIS morning's session.
The Western Academy of Huneoputhy
continued its session this morning at 10
o'clock. The president, Prcf. T. 8
Hoyne, M. D.. of Chicago, called the
meeting to order. The at'en lance had
considerably increased, owing to the ar
rival of quite a number of physicians on
the morning train. After some prclimin
ary business had been dispensed with the
bureau of obstetrics was declared open
An able paper by T. G. Corns to. M. D.,
ot St. Louie, was then read and listened
to with much interest. This subject was
"The blunt look; its use and abuse in
obstetrical practice." In the ibsenceof
the writers, several papers belonging to
the bureau were simply read by title.
Bureau of gynaecology presented the
following essays: "Gonorrheal in fe
males," by Dr. H.P. Phillips, of Chicago:
Mechanical support in uterine displace
ments," by Prof. W. A. Edmonds, M. D.,
of St. Louis. An interesting discussion
followed. . ...
The bureau of opthalmology i nd otol
ogy was next considered. An iong the
most important paper belongii g to the
bureau was one by Dr. W. A. Paul, of
this city.; The title of Ibis paper was
"Trechiases and its Unsuccessful Treat
ment by Electricity." Several c aes were
cited, in which he had used this form of
treatment successfully in this snnoying
and painful eye trouble.
The bureau of surgery was next de
clared open, and presented a good array
of valuable, paper. - Space will permit
us only to mention the following: "A
review ot cranial and intercranlal - sur
gery" by Dr. Shears, of Chicago.
"Sepsis, its character and causes" by
Walter F. Knoll, M. D.. of Chicago.
