WILL BE CAUTIOUS GoTernment Statement on Dr. Friedmann's Cure. Final Judgment Cannot Be Rendered at This Time. Washington, March 22. 5The public health service, through Surgeon Gen eral Blue, has issued its first state ment relative to the government in vestigation of Dr. F. F. Fried mann's alleged tuberculosis cure. The statement, which emphasizes the gov ernment's policy to proceed cautious ly, is as follows: "On March 8 the secretary of the treasury, on the recommendation of surgeon general of the public health service, caused a board of medical of ficers to be detailed to make a thor ough Investigation of Dr. Fried mann's alleged cure for tuberculosis. "These officers proceeded immedi ately to New York and arranged with Dr. Fried mann for demonstrations of his remedy upon persons suffering from tu berculosis. These demonstations are being carried on in certain New York hospitals, through the courtesy of their respective authorities, and will be continued until sufficient in formation has been obtained for the forming of an opinion as to the mer its of the treatment. "Dr. Friedmann has submitted to the board a culture of the bacteria, which he states are used in his meth od of treatment. In addition to the observation of persons under treat ment by Dr. Friedmann, the board of officers will make experiments to as certain whether this culture is as Dr. Friedmann claims, harmless to warm blooded animals. "Considerable time necessarily will be required to carry out these inves tigations. The work will be carried cut as rapidly as possible. "In the meantime, the public is in formed of the inadvisability in the great majority of cases, of traveling long distances in the hope of receiv ing treatment as those selected for demonstration purposes constitute chly a small proportion of applicants. , "Certain statements purporting to be expressions of the opinion of the board of officers of the public health service carrying on the investigation have appeared in newspapers. These officers have expressed no opinion and will not be in position to do so until the work has advanced sufficiently to warrant some conclusion in regard to Dr. Friedmann's treatment." Will Require a Month. It was further stated by govern ment officials that it would be at least a month and probably longer before anv conclusion could be reached re lating to the efficacy of the treatment upon the patients who are being watched by the board of officers auth orized to make the investigation. Dr. John F. Anderson and Dr. A. M". Stimson, who compose the board, are keeping a daily clinical record of rases treated by Dr. Friedmann in the New York hospitals. These records will furnish the basis for final reports when sufficient information has ac cumulated to warrant them. Though developments from day to itsy, such as lowering of temperature, disappearance of night sweats, ces ration of coughing and the like, might triean something of Importance in one rase, in others it would not. For this reason, the public health officials re Kard it as dangerous to make any re ports whatever until . they are ready to report finally. They also point out that It is necessary to keep a record in many cases, as two or three cases would not be sufficient upon which to base a Just report as to the efficacy f the treatment. Thus far. Dr. Friedmann's tuber culosis culture has been demonstrated to be a "live bug." according to tests made In the government hygienic lab oratory here, sub-cultitres having been crown from the original culture sub mitted to the public health service by the Berlin doctor several weeks ago. The tests conducted by Dr. - Ander son proved that new bacilli would "propagate from the prime culture and experiments have been begun with warm blooded laboratory animals. The sub-cultures also have proved to be acid proof and they have been pro pagated on various chemical media, such as beet boullion, gelatine, bread find other subjects. Enough of the bacilli has been developed for the carrying' out through monkeys and guinea pigs of further tests of the anti-tubercular bacilli which Dr. Fried mann claims to have derived from sea turtles.

The supreme court has denied the ap plication of the Kansas Natural Gas company for a stay of execution in the Montgomery county suit which re sulted In the appointment of receivers for the gas company by Judge Thomas Flannelly. A stay was sought by the gas company pending final action on an appeal to the supreme court. Judge Flannelly established a precedent by appearing personally before the su preme court to defend his action in the receivership order. Judge C. F. Hutchins, of Kansas City argued for a stay of execution for the gas company, while' S. N. Brewster and Chester I. Long opposed the issu ance of such an order. As soon as the application for a stay had been filed Judge Flannelly notified the court that he desired to be present when the mo tion was heard. Following the argu ment of Judge Hutchins. the Independ ence Judge arose and asked permission of the court to make a statement. This request was granted and Judge Flan nelly gave the court the history of the Montgomery county suit. Before the application for a receiver ship for the Kansas Natural was filed in the federal court, the state had brought suit against the gas company in Judge Flannelly's court charging them with violation of the anti-trust laws and asking for the appointment of receivers. Because his case had priority. Judge Flannelly insisted on the trial of the case in his court, found for the state and appointed re ceivers as prayed for. Now an appli cation is pending before Judge Pollock to dismiss the federal receivers and turn the property over to the men ap pointed by the Montgomery county judge. This case will be heard Mon day in Kansas City. It was to dodge this hearing that a motion for a stay of execution was filed in the supreme court. The court, after hearing the arguments, denied the application for a stay. "DEADEYE DICK" DIES Famous Robber-Evangelist Victim of Man Ho Tried to Reform. Chicago, March 22.

BRADFORD A candidate of the working class I believe in the extension of mu nicipal ownership of public utilities, other than Just our waterworks and street lights, for this reason: If the net revenue of the several utilities now operating in the city were turned into the city treasury our taxes would, no doubt, be far less burdensome. As it is, a large part of this revenue goes out of Topeka, and of course helps to build other cities. I do not envy other cities their growth, but I do insist on Topeka first. I advocate a complete system of publicity, enabling the people to have a distinct understanding of the affairs of their city government. Yours for Topeka first, G. L. Brad ford, for commissioner of waterworks and street lighting. Primaries March 24th. (Advertisement.)

New York Man "Hoist by His Own Petard." New York, March 22. Blown up by his own bomb, Henry Klotz, a draughtsman in the employ of the city, lies in the Fordham hospital today, so terribly wounded that it is doubtful if he lives to spread any light on the accidents. Bits of nails, screws and small steel slugs from the bomb punc tured his face and body in more than 30 places, one eye was destroyed and two fingers of hia left hand blown oft. The .police today continued an investi gation of the 'case. When Klotz was removed to the hospital last night he declared the exploding bomb was one which he found in a park. When he learned that he had littie chance to live he told the police the bomb was one of his own - making. A visit to his rooms seemed to confirm this, for the place was like an arsenal. There were 12 one-pound cars of black gun powder, 16 shotguns and rifles, revol vers of all sizes and knives and swords of all shapes. The police were struck by the fact that the house where the accident oc curred and where Klotz lived with his mother and two sisters on Fulton street was only two blocks from the apart ment house where Mrs. Madeline Her rera was killed and two other persons were injured by the explosion of a bomb very similar to that which Klotz was making. J. P. Farrell, a weak minded janitor, who has been held in' the Tombs for some time charged with the Herrera bomb outrage, which was committed February 20, confessed to guilt, but later repudiated the con fession. mm MMH REPORT, Chicago, March 22.
