So Many Sufferers Apply at
Waldorf That Berlin Physi?

Office of His Own.
To Comply with Strict Provi?

ment of Tuberculous Will
Be Oonducted by
Other Doctors.
Dr. Friedrich Franr Fri?*-dmann. who
discovered. as lie believed, that the
bacillus from a tubercular turtle would
cure consumption In human beings,
made another discovery early yester?
day, -alien the Waldorf-Astoria in
formed him that the arrangement he
hfid made to "cure" people at the hotel
???-mid have to be called off. So many
?van faced consumptive*? had appeared
at the desk and asked for the doctor
with the turtle perms that the hotel
management hijcarn- alarmed.
?Charles de Tidal Hundt, the ex-news?
paper ?tsorroEpondcnt, who 1b Dr. Fri-ed
msnn's secretary, issued th*? following
??fstement after the hotels attitude was
3 in a unce ?i :
"While In Ne-r York- Dr. Friedmsnn
ras chosen the Waldorf-Astoria for hia
-csldenre otily. He will take offices
?? lier? he will treat patients. Under
no circumstances will he see patients
*? tr*4j Waldorf."
ft ?""-as said ths?l ?n office would be
?elected to-morrow ?'hero patients
c*?uld be trr-atr-d.
Not a Regiatered Physician.
Another difficulty in the way of Dr.
Prtedmann receiving 'patients' is his
not being a registered physician in
rhis state, a fact which was the HUb
trct ,,f .??.nsiderabl? comment among
l.'hysicians in the city. Section 173 of
the medical \ttw provides that the
Hoard of Regents grant licenses to
practise only to person? passina: a med?
ical examination. Ex?-?piions are

cians serving on the stsffs of hospitals
without pay or where men of conced?*d
fgglnglirg from other states or foreign
< ountrics ate specially permitted by
the state authorities to practis?
Mr. Hundt said tha* this phase of
the situation had o< .uncd to Dr. Fried?
msnn. and that he had decided to act
??nly in sn advisory capacity, leaving
actual practi? .? involved in his
?r?*atnient to physician?- regard ?nt?

While the police of the leading ??ties

old girl, one of the six children of a
crippled night watchman.
The night watchman, who worked at
a manufacturing plant, noticed a bli of
"glass" in a rubbish heap beside the
railroad track which adjoins the fac?
tory. He picked It up and gave it to
his little daughter, who was d.-lighted
to possess a fine string of "beads."
Recently the child, attracted by somo
-beads" in the" window of a Jewelry
shop, showed the proprietor that she,
too, had some pr?**tty ones. Thus the
truth ?same out. An expert confirmed
the value of the jewel*, and the? owner
was sought. Mrs. sipragu?" ?--aw the

Mayor Qsynor. in a long discourse j

"sep?rete firce" to handle vice, excisa
and gambling, which met with such
severe criticism when he advocated it
two week? age. and ?aid he could meet
the ?ituation with the appointment of
"ten young and active Deputy Com?
missioners'' to take the place? of the
?nsnector* in the department.
The Mayor alao reduced his pre?.?ouS:
estimate of the number of grafters on
the force from one hundred to fifty
and reiterated his familiar accusation
that the preeent "hue and cry" waa due
to the headlines in "corrupt and eenta
tional newspapers." He declared that
District Attornsy Whitman had ths
backing and aasistance of the police
and of himself in everything he had
done since the Rosenthal murder in
spite of "a notion abroad to the con?
trary." His Honor gave the polies all
credit for their work in the Becker
case, saying they "hsd entered heartily

[?istrict Attorney Whitman's answer
to th?* BSWTSl .support lhnt was Ipvlslied
on Inspector Dennis Sweeney at the
lieutenants' dinner last Saturday night
will come in the form of demands for
eight separate Indlrlments for grafting
against the former < ommander of the

for to-day before the extraordinary
grand tury.
The evidence I?? he presented of tnes?
eight instances of grafting by Sweeney.
It is expected, will render siiperfl'iouji
uny further ? onsldcration of the *?Jga
first hinted at by ?'ommissioner Waldo
that the present graft indictment Is

These eight cases will be based on
evidence furnished by Captain Thomaj
