OI.V tll'l V. W IMS. I'BIP.W MMMi, HKCKMHLU 15, 1905. Dosing vs. Rubbing. Probably no case in the lower courts 1IA« excited more interest than the prosecution of Mrs. Kmilie Koblman, before Justice Frost, this week, the ease beginning in the Superior Court room, Saturday, at 11 A. M, and con cluding Monday about 5 r. m. in a verdict of " N"t Guilty" by the jury, af ter ks-iliao fifteen minutes'considera tion of the evidence submitted. The court-roum was crowded during the entire trial, a large proportion of the auditors being women. The announce ment of the verdict was received with a demonstration of feeling seldom wit nessed in a court-room —ttie clapping and shaking of hands, and some of the women embracing eacli other in the exuberance of joy. This exultation was probably accentuated by the fact that many of them bad been under treatment by Mrs. Kohlman and all claim to have received great benefit from it. The prosecution was based upon a section found in the Session Laws of l'JOl, pages 50-51, amendatory of Sec. 8 of an act regulating the practice of medicine, approved April 10th, 1800, iu which it is provided that any pcreon practicing medicine or surgery, or either of its or their branches, within the State, without first having ob tained and filed the license provided for in the act, shall be doemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, fined not less than SSO nor more than SIOO, or by imprisonment not less than ten nor more than ninety days, or both such fine and imprison ment. The act then goes on to state what shall constitute a violation of the act: Failure to file a license; maintaining an office, with his or her name and the words " physician," " surgeon," " doctor," " M. D." or " M. B." in public view; advertising under any title which may tend to show that the person is a lawful practitioner; practice under an assumed name, or under cover of the name of some legal practitioner; or for a fee to prescribe, direct or recommend any drug or medicine for the cure or relief of any wound, fracture, or bodily injury, infirmity, or disease. The action in the late case was based entirely upon the first clause, failure to file a license with the County Clerk, and the last, prescribing, for * fee, a drug or medicine. The evidence went to show that Mrs. Koblman bad charged only for osteopathic treatment, a new system of therapeutics which supports the theory that the human body is a ma chine, and holds that disease results only from some obstruction, or dis placement of the mechanism, and its methods of treatment are by manipu lation of the bones, muscles and nerve centers. The so-called "medicine" is simply a stimulant to hasten certain effects, or a purgative to carry off, in a natural way, the rejected tissues, or excrements discharged by the gradual loosening of the abnormal growth, or to aid in re-establishing the natural position and ordinary functions of the organs of the body, Mr. Stents testified that he bad paid for treatment only, for a term of sev eral weeks, but that the use of the liquid was continued sometime after ward, for which he paid. J. W. Math eson testified that he paid only for the treatment, the liquid remedial agent being furnished free. N. G. Glenn testified to about the same statement of facts. These were witnesses for the prosecution. Chas. R. Talcott, called by the defense, testified that he was near death's door from stomach trou bles, suffering intense pain; that, as a last resort, he authorized the ministra tions of Mrs. Koblman; that after it was over be felt an immediate relief, and in half an hour was in peaceful slumber. This witness testified that Mrs. Koblman positively refused to receive any pay for the so-called " medicine." Here the case rested. The jury who tried the case consisted of the following persons: George Mc- Clelland. A. A. Gottfeld, James Fraz ier, Chas. Huggett, D. S. B. Henry and E. J. Berneche. Horatio Ailing, County Attorney, prosecuted, and Vance & Mitchell appeared for the defense. The action was brought by direction of the Medical Society of Thurston and Mason counties. The charge was, practice of medicine with out a license, and the specification on which the complaint was based wae treating with medicines Mrs. J. B. Stents, for a tumor. No denial was made that Mrs. Kohl man had given massage, or osteo-j pathic treatment, without a license, for the reason, as she claimed, her system of practiee did not come under the class proscribed by law, and it seems she established to the satis faction of the jury that she did not ask or receive pay for anything but the manipulation of the seat of disease, the simple remedies given being of ber own manufacture and not contem plated in the proscriptive clause by the legislature. Mr. Alliug's claim was based upon a strict construction of law and by de fining the term medicine used in the evidence to mean a paid prescription. His argument was an able one, from his standpoint. Messrs. Vance <fc Mitchell, who ap peared for the defense, claimed that the sole intent of the law-makers was to guard the public against empirics and quacks; that there could have been no intent to restrict or hinder druggists or others from compound ing or using simple preparations that might come under the generic term of mcdiciues, or even drugs, or is it all tJSw- probable they intended to declare a system of surgery, that used a no more deadly instrument than the human hand, tin c\il to be suppressed by the the strong arm of the law. It may not be uninteresting in this connection to note the claim that Mrs. Kohlman came of noble lineage in the old country, her father being a com manding officer in the army and her mother a doctor of considerable note in Fatherland. Mie, herself, is a grad uate of the Wisconsin College of Mid wifery and Maternity Hospital, incor porated July Ist, lStsft, and re incor porated Oct. Ist. lbfiT, from which she bears a diploma dated July Gth, ISOU, signed by the Board of Directors, J. L. Scollard, Helen Meyer and Mary Kness. It is under seal and acknowl edgment before a Notary Public. It is a matter of considerable sur prise that, after the complete vindica tion of Mrs. Koblman by the judgmeut of six men, on oath, who heard every word of the testimony and bad the law expounded by a prosecutor of the talent of Mr. AlliDg, a new suit should be instituted—this time in the Supe rior Court, to fine and imprison this woman, who from the unanimous ex pression of her patrons, has done noth ing but good, end much good, in re lieving them of their serious, and sometimes said to be incurable ail ments—and by the same medical body. Far be it from us to impugn the mo tives of those gentlemen. They are probably endeavoring to serve the pub lic in a way they think may be the best, but we must insist that the consensus of public opinion, and especially of those who speak from experience, is against them. Their efforts so far have been to do the very thing they consider unprofessional and beneath the dignity of regular allopathic prac titioners, and that is to advertise, which can be no less an "evil" though it benefit a rival system that they have contributed no little in establish ing a belief in, and respect for, by placing simply the truth in evidence. Guarding Public Reports. A Washington dispatch of the Blb gives an apparently farcical account of the efforts lately made by the new De partment of Agriculture to guard the report of the cotton experts soon to be issued. It is not made in a jesting spirit, however, as it has been charged that speculators have hitherto used the information gathered by govern ment to influence market prices and orders were given for the most rigid efforts for secrecy till the figures were ready for official announcement. The utmost care has therefore been taken to avoid collusion between three agents sent through the South to gather statistics, or the clerks in the department, with outsiders, to prevent the premature announcement to spec ulators, that has been charged and was the subject of elaborate investiga tion last season. The reports of these special, as well as the regular agents of the Agricul tural Department are to be mailed di rect to Secretary Wilson, in distinctive envelopes and the Postmaster General baa provided special pouches for them, to be delivered to the Secretary in per son, placed in an iron safe, guarded night and day by a detail of watch men. The reports when tabulated will be delivered to four men of known integrity, who will be locked in a room and not allowed to leave it until the report is made. Telephonic commun ication with their room will be sev ered, and a watchman placed at the door with instructions to allow no one to enter or leave the room until the work is completed. After the report is submitted to the Secretary of Agricul ture, the four experts will remain locked up till be has approved their finding and it has been telegraphed all over the United States. The resort to such methods may seem unnecessary to those who are not in a position to realize the possible importance of the information to the bulls and bears, or tbe liability for some possible collusion, as previous experience has shown. A NEW SOURCE OF PERIL IN LARGE CITIES.—A report comes from Pitts burg that electrolysis is eating away tbe steel foundations and structural iron in many large buildings of that city as well as destroying tbe heavy underground pipes of the light and water service. Engineers who have made a thorough investigation state that many of the steel supports are pitted so badly that a hole can be dug in tbem with an ordinary pocket-knife and that iron pipes inay be abraded with a nail. Tbe details of the report, it is said, have been carefully kept from the public, for the city's water and gas service, and the stability of some sky-scraping buildings are iu such a dangerous condition that the Department of Public Works feared a panic would ensue if tbe true state of affairs was made known. THE LONO TEXAS QUARANTINE IS RAISED. —On the Ist instant Gov. Lan ham, of Texas, by proclamation, raised the general quarantine that had been maintained since April Ist, against ports south of the 25th degree of north latitude. It provides, however, for a rigid inspection of persons entering the State who have been presumably exposed to smallpox, yellow fever, cholera, typhus fever, or the bubonic plague, either within or without the State, and authorizes health officers of counties and towns to establish local quarantine in such cases.

It i* horrible enough to take human life through the form of law. he it ■ ver so " mercifully" done, but when capi tal punishment partakes of fifteen I minutes of strangulation, through the ' incompetence of its executive officer, it amounts to a culpable act of cruelty ; which should receive the execration !of every civilized, rational being. It is I bad to issue the mandate, life for life, 1 under any circumstances, though pre scribed by forms of law, nnd much worse to condemn to the scat Fold one jof the eex we are taught to love, honor and revere, and perfectly accursed, when the horrible deed is executed, that it be in a bungling and brutal manner. The Sheriff, in such a sol ! emn duty, should have enough com mon seDse to execute the sentence in as humane a manner as possible, and those who direct him to perform the onerous duty should interest them selves enough to know that he is capa ble of making and superintending ar rangements that will be as merciful as possible and as quickly effective. The account says that Mary Mabel Rogers was killed by the State of Ver mont, at Windsor, Saturday, brutally and bunglingly; that an imperfect rope was used, which, when subject to the full weight of the body stretched till her feet touched the floor; her body doubled up spasmodically, and to end the distressing spectacle, three deputies seized the rope, dragging the body free from the ground and held it, suspended till life was extinct. She died, not on the cross-tree of a gallows, but in the hands of three ghastly faced executioners, aud a double dis grace ia thus charged to the Slate whose civilization in the opening years of the Twentieth Century finds its highest expression in the slow strang ling of a woman! Strong men, the account says, turned away horrified at the sight; with hands before their eyes they tried to blot it out. Others hur ried away, pale and trembling. Those who remained seemed to be transfixed by the spell of horrible fascination. For fourteen and a half minutes the victim slowly strangled to death; then the tortured body was convulsed by a great sob, and the spirit fled to a Judge who, notwithstanding the vio lation of Ilia commandment, would never palliate such cruelty by tbo plea of ignorance or an Indifference that seemingly justified the punishmont of Cain when everybody's hand was raised against him. Such a spectacle aa this should go very far towards expunging the death penalty from the statute-books of our land. NEW TYPE OF WARSHIP. —Capt. Za linsky, of Rahway, New York, has in vented a design for a warship which he claims will revolutionize naval ar chitecture. The extreme breadth, or beam, is located about a hundred feel from the bow, in defiance of the rules that have prevailed, and there is a propeller under the knee at each end of the greatest beam, and a third screw in the usual position at the stern. By this arrangement of pro pulsion, the captain claims his craft will not wobble or "cork-screw" through the water, like, he asserts, all screw craft of the present style do- The forward ecrews lift the hull and render wobbling impossible. A pro tective belt of armor, he claims, is unnecessary, for by filling side tanks the hull may be submerged until only three fret is exposed. This is, of couree, but a brief reference to the main departure from present forms of warship construction, but the gentle men claims enough other new ideas, in details for both speed and inde structibility, to establish at once the supremacy of the country which adopts them. IT is announced that apprentices in the dentists' offices in Idaho are to be given an opportunity for practice on the teeth of convicts iu the peniten tiary of that State, on the 29th, the object being to pass judgment upon the display of skill of those making application for licenses to practice dentistry. This seems to be on a par with tbe custom of giving the bodies of executed criminals to medical col leges for dissection, and nearly as bad as a practice said to have been adopt ed in France of condemning convicted criminals to unique operations, almost ..sure to kill, in the medical colleges, and if they survived, to be reserved, like rats iu a cage, for some further ordeal, till the terrier practice ended in death. THERE'S "CHEEK."— Queen Liliou kalina once sovereign of the Sandwich Isles, now one of Uncle Sam's colonies, has placed a modest request for 910,• 000,000 to be paid her as a compensa tion for peaceful relinquishment, just as lie paid $20,000,000 to Spain for possession of the Philippines, after we had whipped that arrogant nation to a finish. The circumstances are some what similar, but a precedent that has been unwisely established should be removed by a basis for another prece dent at the earliest opportunity. It is safe to say that Lily really don't know what a vast pile a million dollars would make, or what a large ship-load of gewgaws it would buy. REPRESENTATIVE Cuabman called upon th&- Postmaster General last week to learn the facts concerning the order that Congressmen shall no long er be the dispensers of postoffice pa tronage. He was informed that "effi cient appointees will be retained dur ing good behavior." That ought to settle the matter so far as the Olympia office is concerned. Launch of tho Warship Idaho. Tlio battleship Idaho was launched at Philadelphia, Saturday, and cbris teiied by Miss May Louise Gooding, the 13 year old daughter of Gov. Good ing, of that rising western State. The Idaho is a twin-ship of the Pennsyl vania, and is designed to develop 17 knots an hour on her trial trip. While the Idaho has tAkcn the plunge, which is usually regarded as indicating nearly 1 completed state, it is not so in this in | stance. Her hull b< low water line is completed, but her upper works are a mere skeleton, and, in a coat of bright red paint, present a striking appear ance. None of the armor has been placed as yet, her sides now being tem porarily protected with heavy timbers. She has every appearance of an unfin ished ship. Sho is considerably larger than the battleship Oregon. She has 375 feet of length and a breadth of 77 feet, with a displacement of 13,000 tons. She will draw 2-1 leet 8 inches and when loaded 27 feet 1J inches. Her coal bunkers have a capacity of 1,750 tons. Her battery includes four 12 inch breech-loading rifles, eight 7- inch guns of tho same class, and two 18-incb torpedo tubes, supplemented by the usual secondary battery. The armament of the new ship are larger than those of Hie Oregon in all re spects, excepting the larger guns, the 12-inch on the Idaho being 13-inch on the former vessel. The guns for the navy are now made by the government in its own shops, and the casting of larger than 12 inch has been discon tinued. Electricity will perform near ly all the work on the Idaho. It will control the movement of the turrets and loading and firing of the guns, lighting and heating, and communica tion by wireless telegraph. She will have an evaporating plant capable of providing 16,500 gallons of fresh water a day, and an ice plant that will supply three tons of the congealed element, each 24 hours. A small fleet of aux iliary craft will be carried on her deck, including two 40-foot steam cutters, four 33-foot sailing launches and a dozen other smaller craft for emer gency uses. The accommodations for officers and men will be thoroughly up-to date- There will be a commander, 15 ward room officers, nine junior officers, nine warrant officers and 686 men, includ ing 60 marines. Three months allow ance of provisions will be provided for and six months'supply of clothing and small stores. This ship although not so large or as fleet as some of the battleships, has had the results of experience and ob servation wrought in every detail and will no doubt equal any ship afloat in efficiency. DEMORALIZATION IN PUBLIC SERVICE. —The St. Louis Grand Jury has re ported to the Circuit Court that the conduct of the police department of that city is deplorable. It declares that the force are indifferent to, or actively protecting, vice; that they associate with criminals; that the de partment is a political machine, and has either actively assisted in election frauds or hat connived at them. It is said that Gov. Folk will call a special session of tbe Legislature to take the department out of politics and provide " home rule" for St. Louis. This same demoralization seems to be wide-spread all over the country. New York and Philadelphia are by no means alone in demoralized methods for perverting integrity in publie life. Here, in our own State, special grand juries have been called in Pierce and Walla Walla counties and in Ada county, Idaho, to consider the alleged corruption of pub lic officers. Last week, the Mayors of Cincinnati and Columbus held a con vention at Cleveland Ohio, which Mayor Dunne of Chicago and Mayor Weaver of Pennsylvania attended. Mayor Johnson of Cleveland presided and outlined tbe object to be the alarming prevalence of corruption iu all departments of municipal govern ment, and consideration of plans to emancipate municipalities from the yoke of corrupt boss rule. " COMFORT," an Augusta, Me., publi cation has this to say of one of our townspeople, who writes feelingly and truthfully of our city and its attrac tions: "Jennie Frazier, 1,014 Franklin street, Olympia, Wash., writes that she has lived in Indiana, Kansas and lowa, but after fifteen years in Olympia, she thinks that is the garden spot. No cold or hot weather, flowers the year round, no thunder-storms, no cyclones, all sorts of fruit and vegetables, clams, oysters and fish, good farms at reasonable prices, many openings for business men with small capital, and generally just the place to be happy in. She will answer all questioners inclosing postage. PRESIDENT Roosevelt did an unusual thing this week in recalling his ap pointment of Miles Cannon, Register of the North Yakima Land Office, in view of a protest made by the Wash ington State delegation that they had not been cousulted. They are likely to recommend Z. Y. Colman, of North Yakima. Cannon's appointment was a tranefer from the Receivership to Register, and it is said he will retire in May when hie term expires. PRESIDENT and Mra. Roosevelt for mally announced this week the en gagement of their daughter Alice to Nicholas Lungwoith, Representative from the First Congressional District of Ohio. The wedding will take place in February. TIIE House of Representatives, among its first acts, passed the Hepburn bill making appropriation for the Panama Canal, reduced from $16,500,000 sug gested by the President, to $11,000,000, by a vote of 136 to 121. w Gatherings bv the Wayside * Ifc " • • lif JjJ " I Know Not What the Truth May Be— jjj I II Tell It as 'twas Told to Me."

This time was agreed upon at the joint confer ence of the Centennial Committee, representing the church at large, and the Pittsburg committee, which must provide suitable accommodations for the visitors who will be there on that occasion. It is proposed to spend 110,000 a year promoting interest in the event. WWW The Panama Canal will probably be excelled in magnitude by a project inaugurated by a group of French capitalists, with Baron de Lobel as their representative. It is to build a railroad from Siberia to Alaska, by bridging and tunneling under Bering Straits. It is said tbe enterprise will be capitalized at from $250,000,000 to $300,000,000 and that the money cen ters of France, Russia and the United Stales will be asked to share in the financial phase of the project. WWW To inaugurate Theodore Roosevelt President of the United States last March cost $145,491, a greater sum than was ever spent for any previous inauguration. The details of this cost were made public in a report by Gen. John M. Wilson, chairman of the Inaugural Committee. Notwithstand ing the large expense, the committee has turned over a balance of $4,730 to the Auditorium Association, an or ganization formed to erect a building in which to bold future inaugural balls. WWW One of the strangest things in hu man nature is shown by the treatment of Johann Hock, the convicted mur derer in Illinois, by a sister of his victim, who, on Thanksgiving day visited him in his cell spending near ly the entire day with him and furn ishing roast turkey, cakes, pies, fruits, and seasonable delicacies for a repast fit for a king. It was this same wo man, whose testimony convicted him of tbe murder of her sister, who was one of the many wives, and says she j will stand by bim under all circmn- : stances. All the landmarks of the St. Louie Fair have not yet been removed. Last week fences were taken out from all that part of Forest Park known as Art Hill, reatoriog to public use a con siderable tract of the World's Fair grounds, where until now wrecking of buildings has been going on. Festival Hall, the Colonnade of States, the East and West Pavilions and the Cascades have been removed. The grading of this part of the grounds has made sufficient progress to give an idea of the treatment provided in the plans of park restoration. * * * The assessed wealth of our leading cities, is thus stated on good authority: New York, including Manhattan, Bronx and Brooklyn, $11,092,231,881; (Greater New York alone, $5,015,463,- 779); Boston, $1,237,038,851; Phila delphia, $1,162,074,023. As affording some realization of what a billion is, we note that these are the only cities in our great country that require ten figures to express their wealth. Only three exceed half a billion, Buffalo, Baltimore and San Francisco; and two, St. Louis and Cincinnati approx mate the half-way figures. a a a Charles M. Schwab is planning to become Seuator from Nevada, succeed ing Francis M. Newlands, whose term expires in 1909. This announcement comes from Nevada, where it is under stood that Schwab, in seeking the Senatorial prize, has already obtained a residence, has invested heavily in new gold fields, and is building a home. Mr. Schwab will be very strong in 1908 when the Legislature will be selected that will name Newlands* successor. The State's population will at least double from 1900 to 1910, so Schwab will be no newer than the State. A pair of hunting dog* lately aaved their master from downing, who, while duck-hunting on the bay near Mare Island, California, capsized his boat, and dressed in his heavy clothing and weighted down by his cartridge belt, was almost powerless for self-aid. He was alone with bis dogs, and they seemod instinctively aware of his dan ger. They had seized upon his clothing with their teeth, but that only ren dered him more helpless, and in obed ience to his command, tbey ranged themselves beside him and struck out for chore after their master had placed a hand on each flank to buoy him self up, which he declares lie could never have done without that aid. * * * The charge that the rich people of New York are guilty of race suicide seems well taken.

Besides ibis no passenger in a sleeping car cr chair-car may take a drink of anything stronger than water. The ■nference is that no restraint is placed on either card;; or driukiog in the second class cars, nor is there any thing said in the account as to meth oils for suppressing the "pocket-pistol" on the Pullman cars. The porters are talking of a strike, as the order cuts ofT many lips, their chief reliance to piece out a living compensation for their services.

The run which began lately on the State Central Savings Bank, at Keo kuk, la., stopped the next day almost entirely, after arrival of four wagon loads of silver dollars from Chicago and St. Louis. The wagons backed up to the door of the bank. A half nnllion dollars were carried into the bank and piled up in eight of the people. Here is an instance wherein ponderosity counted for more than concrete value. Old settlers will re member when the Indians insisted upon receiving silver dollars in pay, a currency that represented value in numbers as well as size. They could not be readily iuduced to believe that a ten dollar gold piece was worth as much as ten Spanish dollars, the cur rency which then prevailed. So prob ably with the bank depositors. Four wagon-loads of money certainly served a better purpose as an object lesson than less than a bare cart-loal would have done. * * * Over an even hundred tourists left Seattlo, last week, for a two months' lour of the old world, under the charge of David Braltstrom, who will ac company them through the trip. The first port made will be Liverpool, Eng land. From there the party will visit London, then cross to Belgium, taking in all the importaqt points of that country. Norway, Sweden and Den mark will be visited in turn. As most of the excursionists are Scandinavians, they will spend Christmas in their native towns. This is the eighth "Viking excursion" to leave Seattle for the old world, says the P.-I. Prac tically all the members of the party are residents of Seattle. Among the party are Swedes, Danes, Norwegians and Englishmen. The excursion was arranged by the Chilberg Steamship Agency. The term " Viking" as ap plied to these expeditions, be it noted, has no derivation from the piratical Northmen who infested the coast of our cross-sea neighbors, centuries ago, and which is associated with the gen eral use of the word. It is derived from vik, a bay or stream, and this class of marauders were so called be cause they put off, not like king's ships, from lawful harbors, but from the bay or fiord. The commander of a ship was called a sea-king, from the absolute command he had of all under him while at sea, hence the wide dis parity in meaning of the term. Why is it applied to the Seattle excursions, however, doos not appear from either meaning of the word. CONUUKSH:N|A>J Cushman has intro duced a bill permitting the Portland and Seattle Railroad Co. to bridge the Columbia near Vancouver, and Sena tor Ankeuy one appropriating $50,000 to establish fish culture stations on Puget Sound.
