"family" as Included in the anti-nass An open meeting for discussion of the conservation of childhood was held at the Universallst Church, Thirteenth and L Streets Nortthwest, last night by tho National Council of Women, now in con vention la this city. This question forms ono of the chief problems for whose solution the Nation al Council is endeavoring to unite the energy of the women of the country, and Is being agitated in twenty-three countries by the International Council, of which tho American Council is affili ated. Senator Sherman addressed the women upon what had been accomplished In the Interest of the child in his own State. He said the child question can never be properly solved until the women co operate with men in the study of prob lems presented by it. To Illustrate tho present attitude, he said, that one could always get an audience when the subject announced was the conservation of the physical resources of the country, but that If we weigh human life by Its ap parent Importance, nothing Is cheaper in the world today. 1 Hnuian Life Important. "Yet. the conservation of human life reaches beyond all other considerations of tho community." he said. "There Is an Increasing tendency," he continued, "to sever the family relation, which greatly adds to our problem. The first duty of tho government is to give every little fellow his chance in the world, and the power of taxation should be used unsparingly to see that he gets it. Where private charity seeks to relieve the state of its proper burden it is often a case of where Indiscriminate chanty is worse than none at all." Mrs. Helen H. Gardener spoke upon the mother's place In the home, and its bear ing on this question. "Here is the home of the children," she said, "here is the mother's place, and her duty is to make this home a fit place for her children to live tn." Mrs. Gardener said the old Idea of women's duty is doomed. She called this Ideal, that of passive womanhood act ing us the nurse of a diseased and crip pled, a wronged and vicious race. To day women's way lies in efforts of pre vention, she aid. and woman must work for the prevention of evils in full co operation with the men. Chnplnln Oftern Prayer. Rev. Dr. Prettyman, chaplain of tho United .States Senate, opened the meet ing with prayer.

Norris. a retired hotel man. and the hose wagon of Fire Engine Company No. 7, on its way to a fire at 1224 Fourth Street Northwest, collided. Dr. George Barthelme, an eminent Ger man scientist and correspondent here for a number of German newspapers, crit icized Dr. Franz Friedmann yesterday by declaring that he did not believe that tho German savant was observing the ethics of his profession. He pointed out that in Koch's and Von Rucker's cases their dis coveries were given to the world for the "benefit of humanity," with no hope of financial reward. In Frledmann's case, he said, there has been a disposition to withhold from the public the formula of his alleged cure, an unheard-of thing In Germany. Every chance, he declared, had been given by the government to the Geramn doctor to demonstrate the efficacy of his cure. The reluctance to part with the secret of his serum was looked upon, he said, as a breach of "German professional ethics." Senator Hughes of New Jersey today will introduce a bill granting authority to Dr. Friedmann to practice medicine in the DlBtrict of Columbia. In order to assure himself of his position, Senator Hughes consulted a local attorney, who yesterday prepared the bill.
