Figures given out yesterday by the De
partment of Labor, showing the rise and
tall In the price of eggs In November of
each year since 1907 testify to the cause
of the present nation-wide boycott. .Ac
cording to this schedule the pries of eggs
climbed to 75 cents per dozen In New
York and Newark, N. J, last month,
with a low level In those cities of 40 and
SO cents respectively.
This represented an Increase of IS cents
over November, 1911, In New York, and
5 cents In Newark, N. J. Washington
prices showed as high a. rise. During
November of last year. eggs sold at the
highest, at cents, and. at the lowest,
45 cents. Prices quoted for the District
last month place the high mark at GO
cents, an Increase of 1! cents over last
year, and the low mark at 40 cents, or
an Increase of S cents.
The lowest price prevailed at Kansas
C1H ind Birmingham, where eggs sold
at 30 CLiiti last month. There wero sev
eral cities c'urlng November, 1912, where
eggs were old at this price, but there
were but two this year.
The Department of Agriculture yes-
terday Issued a bulletin announcing a
decline in the price of eggs. This but
ietln was attacked by Representative Mc-
Kellar. or Tennessee, who claimed the
Department is trying to "whitewash the
cold storage men." Representative Mc
Kellar recently Introduced a bill attack
ing tho cold storage Interests.
Mrs. Ellis Logan, of this city, who in
stigated tho boycott In this city, an
nounced that the boycott had been called
oft. "'We haye accomplished our ob
ject In forcing the drop In the price of
eggs." said Mrs. Logan. According to
the Department of Agriculture this drop
in tho price of eggs Is the result of pul
lets laying for the first time, bringing to
market a flood of eggs hitherto not avail
able. Thus the pullets are given the
credit for the downward slide. In the price
of eggs. Instead ot the boycotters.

CARBOLIC ACID MOBS FATAL.
Death Toll Heavier Tasrn In Case of
Bichloride, Says Dr, 'Woodward
"It Is more Important to devise means
for the better regulation of the sale of
carbolic acid." Dr. William C Wood
ward, Health Officer for the District,
commented yesterday, when asked for
his opinion of the recent amendment of
the New York Sanitary Code to govern
the sale of bichloride of mercury.
The New York amendment, that bi
chloride of mercury, or corrosive subli
mate, shall not be kept or offered for
sale at retail In dry form except In
colored tablets Individually wrapped and
marked Dolson.' Is a good one," he son-
tlnued, "but bichloride of mercury has
not been nearly so destructive of life
as has carbollo acid."
"I also believe that the bichloride
tnhIMm should be of a shape that would
prevent their accidental use. According
to the German law, -the tablets must be
sold In cylindrical shape and oi a certain
content.
Dr. Woodward pointed out. In conclu
slon, that no matter bow this drug Is

Prof. A. S. Itaact, of New York Uni-
Terairr, Narrate Gesiu of
Dutch Pakter.
A trip through quaint Holland via the
Illustrated lecture route, and a narra
tion of tho life of the noted Dutch
painter. Josef Israels, was the treat
given art lovers of the National Capital
last night by Prof. A. S. Isaacs, ot the
New York University, under the auspices
of the Washington Society of Fine Arts.
A gathering that taxed the spacious
auditorium of the New National Museum
attested to the facts that Israels genius
Is well known In Washington, that Prof.
Isaac's ability as a lecturer Is widely
appreciated and that the series of winter
lectures under the auspices of the Fine
Arts Society has been recognized as too
good to miss by local artdom.
Israels' chief quality, said Isaacs, was
his love, admiration, and even adoration
of Rembrandt, and, like Rembrandt
Israels possessed the genius of light and
shade. Israels also had a special gift
In his sense of color and It was this
sense that gave marvelous expression to
his works, Isaacs declared.
From the birth of the Dutch master In
1S24 Isaacs traced his career through the
time when Israels' parents tried to edu
cate him for the clergy, through the days
of his study in the art school at Am
sterdam, through the days of early man
hood In Paris, through his first and
only failure, and then down to the shore
of the sea, where Isaacs lived with the
people, learned them, loved them, and
finally painted them so he attained the
fame he wanted.
'Israels was mora than a painter, said
Isaacs, 'for he was a poet He was
more than a poet, for he was a prophet,
and his pictures were texts. In them he
brought to us a keener sne ot man
kind's unity." The lecturer concluded
with the death of the artist last year at
The Hague. In his eighty-second year.

know that these experiments lead to the
Ilka on human subjects. Furthermore, It
is their belief that tbe practice will re
sult In the wholesale polsonlrg and de
generation of the human race."
"Within two miles of Boston, there ex.
1st conditions In slaughter houses that
would wrlner the heart ot any animal
lover," declared Francis E. Rowley, cf
Boston, president of the Massachusetts
froclety for the Prevention ot Cruelty to
Animals," and the 10,000 slaughter pens
of American methods ot slaying cattle
are In use that belong to on earlier, less
enlightened age. We are far behind Eng
land In this regard "Mr. Rowley sug.
gtsted that more humane methods would
be used In the slaughter houses If the
women customers Insisted that their
butchers get their meats from houses
where better methods are In vogue."
No Orphan Children Used.
Surgeon Pelt us, of the Public Health
and Marine Hospital Service, partly
corroborated the charge that human be
ings as welt aa anlmrls are used as sub
jects of vivisection In the laboratories
ot the service of which ho Is connected.
He denied, however, that orphan children
were used In experiment In the govern
ment laboratories or In any hospital where
public health surgeons aro experimenting.
He declared that be had never heard of
orphans being used by doctors such as Is
charged by antl-vlvlseitionlsts now In
convention here.
In the Hygenlo Laboratory In Washing
ton, Dr. Petttis said, only animals such
as monkeys and guinea pigs are used for
experiment purposes. "In-other hospitals,
I have heard," said Dr. Pettus. "that
human beings are used In experiment
work. The practice of medicine." he
said, "depends upon this experiment
work."
'A score of children between the area
of thirteen and eighteen lears had
diphtheria, scarlet fever, smallpox, and
tuberculosis germs sprayed Into their nos
trils and throats recently when thev be
lieved they were being treated for catarrh
of the throat," declared Frederick P.
Bellamy, of Brooklyn, counsel for the
Society for Prevention ot Ause In Ani
mal Experimentation.
"The doctor guilty of these crimes
confessed them a few days aro In an
article in a leading medical Journal, and
took pride In tbe fact that he had de
ceived his Innocent patients,' continued
Bellamy. "It is a fact that cannot be
denied that insane patients are Inoculated
In their sleep while in asylums."
Dr. Hamilton Fisk Bigger, of Cleveland,
private ph slclan to John D. Rockefeller.
offered no defense ot Rockefeller or the
Rockefeller Institute when he addressed
the congress. Bigger heard denuncia
tions of the Institute earlier in the day
and the assertion It should be "wiped out
of existence.
Ernest Thomson Seton. author and
naturalist, called attention to the fact
that the majority ot women delegates
were wearing furs when he delivered an
address on "Cruel Methods ot Trapping.
He said that .one of the objects of the
congress Is to prevent animals from
cruelty, and asked the women 'delegates
wearing furs If their consciences were
clear.
Mr. Seton's remarks created a flutter
among the women, but the excitement
subsided when Ston launched Into one
of his animal lectures.
ilryan Welcome Delegates.
Secretary of State Bryan addressed
the congress, saying he welcomed the
delegates as the representative of Presi
dent Wilson and the Federal government.
He explained that h could not discuss the
vivisection and other subjects under
consideration because his duties as Sec
retary of State has given him no time to
Inform himself upon the many themes
that the people are discussing.
Letters were read from Senators Gallln
cer and Myers, in which they expressed
themselves as advocates of the object of
the congress. Rev. C Ernest Smith,
chairman ot arrangement committee, an
nounced that President Wilson U In
sympathy with the anti-vivisection move
ment, and would havo addressed the con
gress personally If he had not decided
to deliver no addresses during the first
year of his administration except in the
performance of executive duties.
Mrs. Caroline Earle White, of Phila
delphia, introduced as "the pioneer of the
anti-vivisection movement In this coun
try," delivered an address relating to the
history of the movement from Its begin
ning to the present day.
