The paper says: ■ : Every surgical case at once presents prob lems of medical import, and ones with which the surgical mind is unfitted to deal. The expert in internal medicine should be sum moned the first day. The principle holds per fectly although, as we now know, the fatal result in this instance was inevitable. The oversanguine prognosis Was, if the word is not too harsh, a blunder; but it was one that is likely to happen when hope and emo tion are almost impossible to control. The reaction and healing of the first four days was quickly followed by the demonstration of the lack of vitality of the tissues shown in the gaping of the entire external wound upon the removal of the sutures. That this fact, [ together with the high pulse-rafe, did not give the flooding optimism of some a chill, is at present only a proof to tts that the scientific mind must not allow itself to be dominated by feeling or desire. Already in these col- j umns we have condemned the unnecessary ex- I pression of a prognosis fatal or otherwise. It is wiser in any event to await the coming fact. The criticism of the" Inconsiderate and ignorant is certain to harm both the prophet and his profession. Those who have said that the feeding by the mouth In so short a time after operation was against good professional practice, do not know that the rectum had absolutely refused to contain the enemas. It has also been said that the injury of the pancreas should have been diagnosed at the first operation,- but in all probability there was no demonstrable lesion at that time; and, furthermore, in so fat a subject, and with other technical operative difficulties, it was impossible to secure such a scrutiny of the organ. ' ■ The wound of the kidney or suprarenal capsule was so slight that it had no in fluence whatever in producing death. Other criticisms that have been made seem to deserve no consideration either because they are vague, or anonymous, or self-con tradictory. What Was* the (nnse of Death? At the autopsy there were found no signs of inflammation, no peritonitis, no pus. There was simply nonheallng, and a necrosis Made Her Beautiful Every Lady in the Land Can Now Have a Beautiful Skin.

All the sighs and heartaches *-■» -* *^r ' / improvement.) over a poor appearance may now be ban ished, for it is within the means of every lady, young or middle-aged, to have the clearest and most refined complexion so dear to a woman's heart. Fannie B. . Ralston, 628 Lexington ay, Newport, Ky., says: "When I began using j Mme. ■ Ribault's complexion beautifiers I i did not think it possible to clear my skin, my face was in a horrible condition, liter ally covered with red spots, pimples, • blackhead's, math ■ patches and freckles! I suffered a thousand deaths, and when I sent for a trial of Mme. Ribault's beau tifiers I improved so wonderfully that! my friends did not recognize me, 60 quick- j ly had the change taken place. My skin is now perfectly lovely, and there is not I a blemish or wrinkle anywhere."

Do not fail to ; write to 4ar. of all the tissues in the neighborhood of the track of the bullet. This nonhealing ex tended to the operative incision in the ab dominal wall, around the bullet wounds in the stomach wall for a space of" about the size of a. silver dollar, and for a larger area about the head of the pancreas and adjacent tissues beneath and beyond. The attempt to account for this extensive gangrenous process brings one face to face with the mystery which no theory seems adequately to clear up. So far as we are able at present to set these theories forth we may classify them somewhat as follows: . . Death was due to an absorption into the circulation of the morbid products of the extensive necrosis, the intoxication finally overcoming the vitality of the heart, natur ally weak, and further lessened by disease. Death was the. result of a kind of shock through the injured solar plexus superinduced by the injury and subsequent necrosis of the tissues in its neighborhood. Either theory is simply a method of push ing the mystery,, a step further... back and of asking the question, What was the cause of the extensive necrosis? To this there are several answers: It was due to septic matter carried in with the bullet, either from the clothing, or from, some other accidental source. The absence of Inflammation or of pus makes it difficult to understand how the result could have been thus brought about. ,' . : It was due to a cunningly poisoned bullet, but no substance is known which could produce such a widespread necrosis. It was due to a strange and rare, but by no means unknown, absence of healing power in: some ' diseases and persons. Dr. Phelps, of Buffalo, recently had a similar case. The ex tension of the' gangrenous process to tissues but distantly and slightly ' interfered with as to nutrition, might be held as merely an ex treme loss of such healing power. This de vitalization of the structures, it might be added, would be very natural in a man who, at the president's age, had long led a seden tary life, and who had borne the heavy bur dens of power and responsibility. It Is possible that the necrosis or lowered healing power was due to injury to the solar plexus whereby the trophic power was in hibited or deranged, partially by direct trau ma, or partially by the action of the pan creatic ; exudate, reaching its complete effect only after two or three days. The necrosis was indirectly due to a con cussion of the pancreas, which was not per forated by the bullet, but which was "grazed" and slightly injured, or contused by it, and which within two or three days began to pour out its, natural or morbid secretion; and I this, extending along the track of the wound, induced the necrosis, by its strong and posi tive digestive power, \or because of the nat ural or acquired lack of healing power In the tissues, i » There is a whole science yet to bo revealed concerning the pancreas, but from many pub lished cases it is clear that this organ is easily injured; that fat-necrosis and other kinds of morbid results soon ensue; that fatal results follow from slight injuries to it; that its secretions, normal and morbid, rapidly pass through its enveloping membrane, and soon work irreparable injury to other struc tures. Until further, light may be shed upon the pathology, either by culture made from the tissues secured at the autopsy, or by some discovery, we hold that dogmatic opinion Is not justified. We frankly say, however, that the theory last suggested above seems to be the best working hypothesis. A rigid analysis of all the cases of pancreatic disease and in jury might tend to confirm it. In this case the pancreatic exudate, rcausing the necrosis, might possibly have 3 co-operated with a minor bullet injury. to the solar plexus, and the absorption of necrotic products thus added to the trauma, to create both intoxication and nervous shock; or possibly. also, as we have said, trophic loss may have been in part or wholly due to direct traumatic or cumulative degenerative injury of the solar plexus."- Criticisms are usually freely offered with regard to the conduct of such cases, many times from those least ; qualified to criticise. Although newspapers have been circulating reports to the contrary, we feel sure that in this case not a single unfavorable comment will be heard from the medical profession and we believe that the confidence of the pro fession is shared by practically the entire na tion. The courage, cool judgment and prompt ond skilful action of those to whom the presi dent's life was intrusted have roused univer sal admiration and commendation. It is in spite of every resource of modern science that we mourn the death of our chief executive from the cowardly _ act of an assassin.

' , > THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUBNA& PLOT IN EVIDENCE Startling Disclosures Are Made in Cleveland. CONSPIRACY OVER A YEAR AGO AHNRKNiiiatioit of I'reslrtent McKinley Planned Before Ills Second Election. Cleveland, Sept. 23. — Investigations ' made yesterday by Police Detective Shutlz revealed the startling possibility , that a plot to assassinate President Me- I Kinley was laid a year or more ago, be- j fore he was elected for his second term, and that it may have been laid in the : precincts of Orange township, where the Czolgosz family lived. A remittance made to the. assassin by his brother, Waldeck Czolgosz, about a month ago, led to the investigation that may have an important il bearing on the case. Prom the first the Buffalo police and the ! secret service agents have been strong in their belief that there was a plot, al- i though the Cleveland police have been In- j clined to doubt the theory. One of the ! strong elements in the Buffalo and secrot j service detectives' opinion has been the fact that the handkerchief with which the assassin concealed the hand in which j he held his weapon was a woman's hand- i kerchief. What is more important is that the handkerchief was tied about the hand in a way that he, It is claimed, 1 would not have been able to tie it him- j self, no matter how skiUful he might have been with the other hand or how much time he might have taken to tie it. The fact that Czolgosz had money im pelled the detectives to try to learn whence he got it. Yesterday his' brother Wald'eck confessed to having sent it to Leon under the name of Frank Snyder at West Seneca, N. Y. In his search for clues Detective j Shulta learned from the neighboring farmers that the Czolgosz boys, Leon and Waldeck, have been readers of socialist papers for several years. John D. Knox, an aged farmer, who lives in the vicinity of the former Czolgosz farm, said: "The two boys, the one that shot the president and Waldeck, used to come to my house and talk to me about their so cialist papers. They brought their papers to me and tried to get me to read them. Once when they were here during the late presidential campaign they got to talking about President McKinley and one of them said: 'If he is elected he will be shot before he serves out his term,' arid then went on 'I'd serve John D. Rockefeller the same way if I got a chance.' They talked violence all the time, and I was glad when they went out of the neighborhood. "Almost every night there was a crowd of people from the city at their house. They used to come over the farm from the electric road so that we would not see them as we would if they had come by the road. The back of the farm extends to the railroad, and the visitors used to go back and forth that way instead of by the road. Sometimes there would be quite a crowd of them." It is said that Leon's father, sister and brothers are going to Buffalo soon and the police believe that when they con front Leon he will break down and re veal all that is now a mystery in regard to the shooting of the president. BILLET NOT POISONED Preparations for the Trial of Assas sin Csolgosz. Buffalo, Sept. 23.—The most Important development in the Czolgosz case yester day was the announcement that no poi son had been found on the bullets or the revolver with which the anarchist assas sinated President McKinley. Chemical and bacteriological examinations were made and both revealed the fact that no poison was used by the murderer. Another examination to determine the exact mental condition of the prisoner was made in the Erie county jail by Dr. Carlos F. McDonald of New York, the alienist who was brought here for the defense by the Erie County Bar association, and Dr. Arthur W. Hurd, superintendent of the Buffalo state hos pital. The alienists were with the as sassin for one hour and a half, and when they left both declined to discuss the case. District Attorney Penney and his entire staff spent all of Sunday at the city hall preparing for the trial of Czolgosz, which will begin before Justice White in part 3 of the supreme court. Dr. Allen McLane Hamilton, one of the most celebrated alienists in the United States, and who was an expert witness at the trial of Gui teau, is in Buffalo. Not a doubt a*s to Czolgosz's sanity exists in the mind of District Attorney Penney, so that it is presumed that Dr. Hamilton is here mere ly to meet the question of insanity should the defense determine to make a fight on that ground. Although the defense de clined to make any definite statement on the subject pending the .final opinion of Dr. McDonald, it is the consensus of opinion among those interested in the case that no insanity plea will be Inter posed by Judges Lewis and Titus. The district attorney is already fortified with the opinion of Dr. Joseph Fowler, Dr. James W. Putnam and Dr. Floyd S. Crego of Buffalo, alienists of some note, that Czolgosz is perfectly sane. Preparations have been made to accom modate over fifty newspaper men, and the courtroom is so small that it is feared not more than 100 spectators can secure ad mission. Those who appear first will be admitted, after which the doors will be closed and the city hall cleared of all ex cept those having business with the city or county departments. Police lines will then be established on the streets at both ends of the city hall, and they can be passed only upon the presentations of the passes to the court room or good business excuses. The Dela ware avenue entrance, which faces the jail, will be locked throughout the trial, and the elevators will not stop at the second floor, on which the courtroom is located. When the prisoner reaches the city hall end of the tunnel from the jail he will be secured by a guard of policemen and the stairways and corridors leading to the courtroom will be entirely cleared, to pre vent any possible demonstration against ■the assassin. These precautions are to be taken owing to the fact that when Czolgosz was be ing taken back to the jail upon the oc casion of his arraignment the crowds in the corridors surged about the prisoner and hissed him. ANARCHISTS DUFIAXT Battle With Citizen* Imminent in an Illinois Town. Spring Valley, 111., Sept. 23. — Twen ty anarchists, armed with double-bar reled shotguns and 1,000 rounds of ammunition, are standing guard over the office of L'Aurore, the notorious pub lication that expressed joy over the death of President McKinley. Citizens of Spring Valley are deter mined to drive out the red?, and more than two thousand persons from neighboring towns have esked permission to come here and help exterminate the viperous colony. The anarchists threaten to hold a public meeting to-night, and if they do a riot certainly will result. There can be but one ending If the fighting starts, for the patriotic people here will be heavily reinforced by out siders, rendy for business. Editor Cabilli is still in hiding. If he is caught he will be thrown into the Illinois river, A committee will go to Chicago to day and ask General Manager Dal »ell to discharge all anarchists, of whom there are 500 in the mines. The discharge of one of them will mean that all will quit, end they have threatened to wreck the machinery if there is any trouble. Politicians who have heretofore coddled the reds and afforded them protection are afraid to come forward now, and the citi zens are determined to rid the town of the dangerous element.

Chicago, Sept. 23. —Armed respectively with a- box of pepper and a revolver, two employes of the Braver Catering com pany of the Lincoln park refrectory fought a duel yesterday. Gustave Biel reck, a cook, used the revolver, while | Andrew Wachter, a porter, swung the pepper box In Bieleck's eyes. Then the to shoot a hole In Wachter's scalp and Wachter planted half the contents of tha pepper box in ißeleek's eyes. Then the police arrested the combatants and took one to the police station and the other to a hospital. Shortly after the building occupied by the catering company had been opened, Wachter went into the kitchen and be- f came engaged in an argument with Bie leck. Some cay jealousy over the affec- ■ tions of the waitresses at the place was ■ the cause of the trouble. Others say j Wachter ordered the cook to prepare his breakfast and was refused. After the lie i had been passed between the two men, ! Wachter picked up a pepper box and ' started towards the cook The novel dufel ! followed. Wachter's condition is not se rious.
