Some of His Characteristics as a Phy sician?Was of Varied Intel lectual Attainments. Dr. "W. W. Johnston died at an early hour this morning at Atlantic City. The announcement came to his friends in this city with the shock of a sudden surprise, for few knew that his condition was at all serious. He became ill about two Weeks ago, the result of an attack of Injligesti6n. After being confined to his bed for several days he became better and last Monday he went to Atlantic City, hoping tfct Change would be beneficial. The improvement was not what was expected, and both Dr. Frye and Dr. Hardin went over to see him. Dr. Osier of Baltimore was also summoned. Human efforts proved unavailing, and Dr. Johnston passed away as stated at an early hour this morning. "Weakness of the heart is believed to have developed and to have caused death. The body is expected to arrive in the city this afternoon and will* be taken to the family residence, 1003 K street." During the past winter Dr. Johnston has worked hard and constantly to meet the demands made upon him by his large prac tice, and while these conditions were by no means new yet he evidently did not have the physical force to carry on the work in its full tide as he had been accus tomed to do for many years past. From the time he began his career as a practic ing physician in this city, as an associate with his father, Dr. YVm. P. Johnston, he has devoted himself to his calling, with a singleness of purposes that permitted no distractions of any sort. For thirty-five years he has occupied a professional posi tion that is rarely attained. Prominent in His Profession. Beginning his active work here when he was twenty-four years of age and at first associated with his father, who was the head of the medical profession In his day, Dr. Johnston by the force of his intellect and his attainments, rapidly arose to prominence. Such were his habits of in dustry and his mental alertness in keep ing abreast of medical knowledge that he retained this primacy down to the day of his death. It was some years ago that he attained the degree of eminence which is recognized when a member of the medical profession is in demand as a consulting physician. At the same time, the large practice which he had increased, and the last few months of his life were perhaps the busiest In his en tire career. His skill as a physician was recogntzed not only by the members of his profession, but by the public. All the hon ors and distinction which his associates could confer on him were his. He was president of the Medical Society and prom inently Identified with hospital work. He was connected with the Children's Hospital and Garfield Hospital, and it was largely through his labors that the University (Co lumbian) Hospital in a brief period became a strong and popular institution. Native of Washington. Dr. AViiliam Waring Johnston was born in this city December 28, 1843. He re ceived his education in private schools and in the college of St. John's, Maryland. He graduated from the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in the year 1865, and spent a year studying at the Uni versity nf Edinburgh and in Paris. He also spent some time in the hospitals in New York city. He then returned to this city and entered upon his career here. Since 1H71 he has been a member of the faculty of the medical department of Co lumbian University, and at the time of his death he was prrofessor of clinical medi cine. He has been honored in being made president of the Medical Society of the District and of the Obstetrical and Gyne cology Society. He was a member of the Association of American Physicians. While his profession was the first and im portant interest in life with Dr. Johnston, yet he found time amid the hard and ex acting duties of a general medical practi tioner to keep abreast of what was doing in other departments of intellectual activi ty. Those who met him when not en grossed with some case found him a de lightful conversationalist, who showed a wldeness of reading and a familiarity with literature that was astonishing to one who knew the demands made upon his time and strength. He was a member of the An thropological Society of this city and con tributed papers. He was also a member of the American Climatologlcal Society. He wrote many papers on medical subjects which were printed in the text books that appeared from time to time, and also in the medical journals. . Thoroughly Equipped Man. Dr. Johnston's acknowledged pre-emi nence in his profession was based on the substantial grounds of a thorough educa tion and medical training and in an intel lectual capacity which enabled him to cope with success with the baffling cases that came under his treatment. He also had what Is known as hard si*3e. He made no fetich of medicine, nor did he Ignore the assistance of nature. Rather he co-operated with nature and gave what aid the art of medicine could suggest. He was conserva tive in his treatment and not fond of ex periments. His devotion to his profes sion was such that no sacrifice of personal comfort was too great, no exertion too arduous, in cases where his medical skill had been called in. ,* The relation between patient and phy sician could have no finer illustration than in the ties of affection, respect and esteem which existed between him 'and the large number of those who came under his care. He had practiced so long in this communi ty. following in the footsteps of his distin guished father, that several generations in families have known no other physician than the elder and younger Johnston. Men and woman who knew Dr. Johnston as children called him in their homes when sickness came. His circle of friends has been a con stantly expanding one, and as people came here to make their homes they, too, called on him when in need of medical aid. He has sat at the bedside of a large number of the prominent people who have required the services of a physician, His long vigil in the case of the late James .Gt- Blaine is re called, while only last fall he was sum HOFFMAN HOUSE CIGARS -AND HOFFMANETTE 5c.

Senor Asplroz, the Mexican ambassador to the United States, has issued the follow ing statement 'concerning advertisements published for several years of an alleged lottery in the state of Saa Luis Potosl, Mexico, tickets for which lottery have been sold and even, he says, Imaginary lists of prise* published: "There Is not ajid never has been such a : lottery In the Mexican state of Sarr Luis Potosl. The advertisers of this alleged en terprise, the forgers of the lottery tickets and the publishers of false lists of prizes have persistently-praetloetf these frauds on . the people of this country inclined ta in f dulge i|i games of chance. The former le gat ion and now embassy of Mexico In Washington on several occasions have de nounced the fraud to the government of the United States for appropriate action to suppress this punishable abuse. The Post Office Department has prescribed some measures for the prevention of the fraud; but in spite of them it is still practiced, as I have informed the State Department, the last time on February ultimo. I have no doubt that the government of the Unit ed States will make every effort for the suppression of the fraud; but it seems to me that the press, so zealous of the people's interests and ever disposed to help the au thorities in the prosecution and punishment of misdoers, would render a great service in denouncing by means of publicity this fraud whose victims are incautious persons who buy tickets of a lottery that does not exist and never has existed in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi." The Protection of Miners. The Senate committee on mining has made a favorable report on the House bill for the -protection of miners in the territories, amending the bill so as to avoid the re quirement for the uae of shot flrers in lighting fires and inserting in its place a re quirement that the dust In mlnea shall be settled by the use of water or carried out of the mine. Minutes of Conferences Wanted. Representative Gaines of Tennessee has introduced a resolution directing the Secre tary of War to transmit to Congress the mtnutes of several conferences In the Phil ippine Islands between representatives of General E. 8. Otis and commissioners rep resenting the people of the islands relative to the settlement of the pending difficulties. SSKrSrfsT ==The Li mat off Perfection in j ilodenni Plumb5mg.
