J & Borne 200 persons of both sexes and all va-
f ff rletlct of uread. most of whom came with the
V passlonato nnd long-doferred hope of getting a
j Rm ahance to make n speech, ossein bled in the
'tt I V ast parlor of the Waldorf-Astoria last night In
fc I response to a call by tho " Medical and Legal
. f' Itollof .Society" to discuss a bill to curb
r 5 Christian Solenco treatment of (he slclc
6 Hi 't and injured. The tentative bill pre-
I a, (" onted provides that any person ndvlt-
y if ' ing another porson not to oall a doctor or
i! V- surgeon In ceto of Illness or Injury shall be
S v- deemed guilty of a misdemeanor nnd, If said
E if I lllnoss or Injury results In death, of man-
L '( slaughter. This legal gem was the Invention
f ,' of Aldermnn Okie, who did most of the talking
J', fc ', of the evening With the aid of Theodore
f ft Hutro. who presided, and O. II, Phoebus, the
i '' Becrotary, who Interrupted the speakers to
j . ask (luestlons, ho ran the meeting. However,
, J ' few of those who came thero ngapo with
' oratory failed of an opportunity, so In one re-
aped tho meeting was a great success.
' ; It was called to order by Chairman Butro,
i f '" , who made n little spocoh, and then some man,
v I ' who ought to get n life-saving medal, offered a
resolution limiting each speaker totonmln
, t'j otcs, which was passed. Alderman Okie took
f ; . the platform, read his proposed bill, which he
i ;f explained was only" tentative, and made a
5 ', apocch about Christian Science and Mrs. Eddy.
'it ' at which the Christian Scientists, who soemod
S - C i to bo lather more abundant than the other
i faction, laughod merrily. Ah soon as Mr. Oklo
' j had sat down up roso W. F. I.uut of the United
f v ' Btntea Hoard of Appraisers and said
- jl ' "I am neither a Christian Scientist nor a be
ll, " llcvor In the Infallibility of the medical profes
f jj, i lion, i think this bill should bo opposed by
-J' u ' any man who docs not wish to feel the shackles
' of tyranny upon his limbs Why, the bill stm-
; i ply amounts to this, that I can't advise a
' . I i member of my family not to employ a doctor.
' - ' even though I know he's incompetent. If he
-. should happen to bo tho only Uootor within
v ' reach."
, "1 would like to ask a question." said Okie
y (he made this interruption at lean twenty
' times during the evening), "lly what right
would any one dare to advise a person not to
: ) call a physician in cane of serious illness?"
I "lly the right of common sense." suid Mr.
f Lunt. "Some physicians are worse than use-
loss "
I- " But tho bill doesn't refer to poor doctors,"
v f, "Then you'll have to purge the profession."
S' aald Mr. Lunt. whereupon there was so great
. an uproar of laughter and applause that Mr.
f J'.arlio, who odlts the society s jiaper, rushed
Wildly lip and down demanding fair plav
"Have you got a bill of your own?" de
manded Okie.
"Xo: I have not considered the matter. It
would De very difficult to draw a fulr bill This
1 one Is simply a sandbagging bill to gratify tho
ounldlty of a profession."
j J "Do you suggest that things remain as they
( are. then V'askod Chairman Hutro.
; "That Is my suggestion." said Mr. I.unt.
i ! "Tho common Ian is enough."

Plats. July 13. Sir Richard Wsbster torn
pletsd the ceographloal argument of the Brit
ish case before the Venezuelan Tribunal to
day, defining the limits of the present British
claim. Replying to a Question by Sir Blehard
Collins, one of the British members oftha
tribunal, ho admitted that the intermediate
rone might hare been ocoupied by a third
party without a breach of International tight,
Spain not possessing a presumptive right to
that territory elthsr through discovery or
I'apal bull. Sir Richard quoted Queen Eliza
beth's rtply to Ambassador Mendoza In sup
port of this argument, la which the Queen re
pudiates the Papal right to grant alien terri
tory. Lord Chief Justice Russell remarked that the
Pope in those days was considered the universal
arbitrator by those of his faith, whereas It was
not so with others. That, from an International
point of view, ho said, was the proper view to
Sir Richard quoted International authorities
from Hugo Orotlus down respecting the rights
of discovery being Insufficient without posses
sion to constltuto ownership, which must be
followed by real sottlcmont. Sir Richard sum
marily dismissed tho Venezuelan claim bated
upon charters by declaring that the charters
were not applicable to the case. He concluded
by thanking the tribunal for patiently listening
to his dull argument nnd also publicly thank
ing his stiilT for thelrable assistance.
The speecli delivered by Sir Richard Web
ster will ben memorable one In tho annals of
International proceedings. It lasted thirteen
days, four hours daily having been devoted to
Its dollvery. Sir Richard developed the British
case, dealing first with the facts and then with
the law, liver) thing he could possibly say
has been said, but the final Impression left
was that tho case was essentially weak. Sir
Richard, while professing to have great oonfl
denco In tho strength of the Dutch title, clearly
rested his case mainly upon the contention
that a large portion of the disputed torrltory
was practically a trrra nulius not ocoupied ef
fectively by cttherSpnln or Holland, and there
fore opon to British occupation lator. It Is
somewhat startling to find that Great Britain
seeks on this principle to justify her recent ad
vances In the direction of Venezuela, and that
now, against what seems to be tho whole dip
lomats history of tho case, she asserts that
the territory from which she forcibly excluded
Venezuela in lSKfl is hers bocause sho occu
pied tho sanio In 1803.

Bernard Courtney, tho Chairman of tlie Tarn
many H,nll General Committee In the Ninth
Assembly district, has sent a letter to every
enrolled Democratic voter In the district urg
ing him to support John C Sheehnn against
tlie Goodwin taction The letter Is written
upon the ofllclal lotterhead of tho Tammany
Hall headquarters In the district nnd bears the
signatures of State Senator Louis Munzinger
and Assemblyman N. TaIor Phillips., In the
letter Mr. Courtney says:
"The present leader. John C. Bheehan. has
by hard and energetic work changed the dis
trict from a stanch Republican to a safely
Democratic one, and brought thu district
organization tn the excellent position it occu
pies to-day respected by nil reputable citizens.
While lie has been a consistent Tammany
nail Democrat, and will always so con
tinue, ho Is resolutely opposed to out
side Interference In the district, and
will not tolerate, in so far as lie can
help, dictation from those who nre seeking to
weaken the party by actions of questionable
honesty nnd decency Ho believes In homo
rule, free speech and free men. and he knows
that tho people of the district enn uiHnnge their
own affairs The conclusion, therefore, seems
to lie natural that every Democrat nnd evory
citizen of tho district should rise up to resist
the attempt to Imposu upon them such unwiir
rnntcd and hlgh-liundud methods, which Mod
tlieirculmlnatlon In un effort to deprive them
of a leader selected by their votes, who seeks
no higher renurd than tho welfare of the
district, aud force them to accept a person se
lected by a man who Is not a resident of tho
district unil who has no Interest therein Tho
ngltatlou should lie continued until the day of
the primary election, when we ask that you ns

summoning a noarby policeman, Insisted that
the man who sst next him be arrested.
"Ho Is trying to do mo bodily harm," said
thecomplalnant. "He Is using chlorine gas to

"I do," spoke up a young man whoso face
was flushod. "What Is It? I've been wonder

V0 The many and
nsee remarkable cures
resulting from the
use of "Golden Medical Discover'"
prove the soundness of Dr. Pierce's the
ory that in these days of haste and hurry
the stomach is the common breeding
place of disease. These cure also prove
the houndtiess of Dr. Pierce's reasoning
that "diseases which originate in the
stomach must lie curtil through tlie
stomach." The " Discovery " is n medi
cine for the stomach ntid other organs of
digestion and nutrition. When the
stomach is healthy the blood made in
the ftoinacli is hen'lthy, and sufficient in
quantity lo nourish the nerves and
strengthen the sj stem to resist or throw
off disease. Nature develops life, sus
tains life and preserve!, life by nourish
ment. Vital failure comes when the
Ixidy is starved either from lack of food
or the inability of the digestive nnd nu
tritive organs to extract the nourishment
from the lood taken into the stomach.
"Golden Meilic.il Discovery " takes the
obstacUs from Nature's way so that she
can sustain life hy her own methods.
