These and oilier j *xi>erlments made throughout the present session, **hile failing to determine the exact nature of tlie disease, are indica? tions of the latest iffoit.? of surgery to v. | cause and cure. At St. Luke's. Hospital other surgeons witnessed a demonstration by Dr. Hubert Abb?- of stricture of the oesophagus, or oaanui windpipe, dm tu the absorption ?.f certain poisonous substance?. The i.etnonstration consisted of an operation which a silk thread is run down the windpipe, followed by an incision in the stomach and the use of a see-suw move? ment, with the thread cutting the uide? of the stricture.

HYGIENE CONGRESS ENDS Promoter of Exhibit Sums Up Achievements and Lessons. The Mental Hygiene f'onference closed -esslon in the Cltv f'ollege last even '. lag. President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia t'nlverslty presided and ' made the opening- address. "?ueh widespread Interest In Insanity as this conference has revealed." he ssld, might be viewed with suspicion, but It Is f-allv a sign of progress. The past cent uiy has seen material forces harnessed In new ways and year by year made more subeervlent to the genius of man. The movement this confer'-no cgpresees is an ?jfiort to conserve our Intellectual forces to make the "moat out of them; It Is a form Of progreaa, for It Is an effort toward the more perfect utilisation of energy." Dr. August Hoch, director of the Psychiatric Institute of the Manhattan State Hospital, read a paper on "Karly Manifestations of Mental Disorder.'' He ???aa followed by Profesaor R. 8. Wood worth, of Columbia, who spoke on "Meptat Efficiency" Dr. Stewart Paton. who was Instrumental In organising the mental hygiene exhibit held with the con? ference, summed up the alma of the meeting, its achievements and Its lesaons. "This b? the first large congress de. voted to v of mental hygiene." he said, ' ateI It has taught us chiefly three thing?-that we must serve the mental hygiene movement by a spirit of 'learning of aident and scientific in > rather than by the spirit of teaeh * log what ?<? Bhreetft know that insanity . la a disease of th? body, not epetlflc-illy I different from typhoid or cholera, and that the study of insanity, so called, Is the path to a deeper understanding of human nature. "It is our duty to educate the public, but to do so with profit we must first separate speculation from fact. Endow? ments providing universities with depart? ments for biological psychology would go far to achieve this and avert moral and mental disaster to many who receive higher education."

It Is not libellous per se for ? news? paper to print the death notice of a living person, when the publication is a "ni?:?' mattet uf news." according to a decision of the Appelletai Division ??f the Supreme j Court, 8econd Department, which was handed down je.terday Some time ago S. Q, Gilbert, acting as the guardian ad litem of Saale** Cohen, brought an action against "The New York Times'' on the ground that the paper had published Mr. Cohen's death notice, when he was not dead. The paper demurred to the com? plaint on the formal ground that It did not set forth facts sufficient to consti? tute a cause of action. Justice Crane, of the Sui.te.me Court, oserruled the de? murrer The paper appealed. In writing the decision reveiwing Jus? tice Crane, Justice Jenks gave Mr. Ullbert the right to prepare a-wither complaint within twenty day. showing; bow Mr. Cohen was injured to the extent of |IO.**"<n _*f the publication of his death notice.

"I am sure," Dr. Franklin II. Martin, general secretary of the congress, told the reporter. "I am sure there was no In? tention on the part of any members of the congress to discriminate or show lech of consideration to any surgeon because she happens to be a woman. All thing* considered, that la to say, if a woman has th? general knowledge of surgery that Is possessed by a man, the very fact that ahe la a woman should be In her favor In surgery, becauae of a woman's deftness ut touch, which la an Important matter In optratlona." Dr. George. B. Stewart said that as far aa he personally was concerned he would go Just as quickly to se? an operation performed by a woman as he would one by a man "The fact of ?ex haa nothing to do with the matter, so far as ?ny prejudice or boycott on the part of male physicians la concerned. A woman's delicacy of touch should be In her favor In surgery, although, of course, there are many other qualifications besides that one which go to make up a good surgeon."

No more has been hear?! about the counting out In Oregon, but ? movement Is on foot In Michigan to throw out on n technicality the vote of enough counties to defeat the amendment If th* women were as much alone as In yean past this effort doubtless would be as suc? cessful as similar ones have been In sev? eral states, but now a large number of men are ready to help them light for their rights.

The Governor will see that Justice Is done, and the granges and Fed? eration of I .a bo i will stand back of the women. This last campaign has had the grati? fying effect of bringing the enemies of woman suffrage into the open. There has been always the same opposition, and It has worked always In the same way, hut It has taken some pains to cover its tracks and the press in general haa not been willing to let the women make a public expos*. This year, however, it has freely said that the liquor Interests caused the defeat of the amendments In Ohio and Wisconsin. The dispatches state that the suit In Michigan is brought by a saloon? keeper, who. of courue, is acting for that ! trade. The suit in Washington many I | years ago, when, by a clearly unconatltu tlonal decielon. the women of the territory were deprh'ed of their suffrage, was brought by the wife of a saloonkeeper. Notwithstanding the statistics showing the Increased consumption of liquor, It is nevertheless a fact thut this business Is having a greater struggle than ever be? fore to maintain its ground. Tt makes no ; secret of its belief that In woman suffrage I It finds Its most dangerous enemy, and It has shown repeatedly that It could afford to spend millions of dollars to defeat it. The women never have gone to a Legis? latur? with their bill for an amendment that they have not met. the lobby Influ? ence of the liquor dealers to prevent the question from being sent to the voteri. The night before a bill merely for school suffrage was to be reported by a commit? tee of the Kentucky legislature not long ago every member of It was "seen" by the agent of liquor Interests. Women and Temperance Cauae. In the face of these und? niable fficis could, anything be more rldieulous than the attempts? of the anti-suffragists to slow that the women vote to make <itl0s) and Btatea 'wet" and that iti local elec? tions their vote Is cast against leSBBor ahcc measures.' At th>. recent meeting of the National WotOOpj't Christian Tem? perance I'nion in Po'tiund, Ore., a whole day was set apart for woman suffrage, and th?? presidents of the unions In all the ?(t?te-, IfberS It ?-xists testified to the help 11 had ix-.-u not only to the i ause of temp?rance but to all reform legislation.
