DOCTORS ARE INTERESTED
Prof. Parvin's Paper Read in Phil
adelphia Discussed Here.
He SiiKKcstM u New Amtpxtlii'tlc Thiit
1m llotli Kffeciite uui! llarnilosH.
Wlmt Our l'tiyMclnns Think.
The medical fraternity of Washington is
expressnu no small interest in the nieei
iugs or the County Medical Society, now in
annual session at Philadelphia. Though
the convention is purely local in character,
yet the Quaker City boasts of many physl
uu'x tanking among the most renowned
in the country. It is therefore reasonable
that express. ons from them should be
fraught with unusual weight.
One of the papers recently read, product
ive of the most interest among physicians
in Hits city, was that of Prof. Theoplnlus
Parvin, in relation to a new method of per
forming painless operations.
It has long been a medical query how to
secure a harmless anaesthetic, that Is, one
that will deaden the pain and at the same
time have no dangerous or Injurious effect
upon the patient Prof. Parvin described
a metlnslthat he had seen successfully
operated with and which hecousented lo let
be usetl upon lunistir.
The particular method described by
Pror. Parvin was first cxrcrlimiitcd wltn
by Dr. Sclileich. He Las ptnoimt d a great
number or very serious operation, such
as amputations or nmbs, rt mmal or tumors
and abdominal Jnrisloiis without causing
the least particle or pain, although tho
person iterated upon rt mains conscious
all through the proceedings.
The manner ot carrjing out the opera
tion is as rollows:
The part is well cleaned according to the
usual methods, lie surince id the skin is
rendered Insensible to the rain oi a r.tsdle
by a spray of ethyl chlorit'e, and with a
hjpodcrmicByringe a number ot lnjtctlons
are made lino the Cecptr structures or a
solution consisting of 2 rfcrls con,mi:naltr
1,000 parts of water, 1 -4 ola art oimorphia
muriate and 1 part of cocaine.
The tissues are llius Inlih rated with the
solution anil they become Insensible to
pain, this insensibility lasting lutecu
minutes or more.
Proi. Parvin believtd that t hast fifty
per cent, of tlie o (rations now performed
under ethir or chloroform could becalrnsl
out with the use or this local anaesthetic,
which Is comparatively harmless and
with no bad alter effects.
Tin-last point istl e one most doubted by
phesielans in tills city. While chloroform
is emlrently dangerous, tlher Is not, but
the tact that tie new solution has rocalnu
in it would at once bra ml it rsn t altogether'
harmless, seme physicians say.
Prnr. Parvin proMtl il e t tilth of h's inser
tions, though, by prtceedlng to tare his
arm and astonished tleuudicuceby slating
that he proporcd thill and there to havean
incision ait Inch long made into hU own
riesh and stitel ed up. An assistant accord
ingly applied the anaesthetic to the pro
fessor's arm. ami. with a scalpel, cut the
flesh without eausirg tie least charge-of
expression In his late, and then stitched
"However well this may do In local
anaesthesia," said a Washington doctor to
The Times reporter. "I do not, believe it
will apply to general anaesthesia. This
will be necessary in the gre-at majority ot
oiierall'ins. since unconsciousness Is desir
able for other reasons than the mere one of
producing Insensibility to pain. Patients
are often terrified by the sight or the
operation or the thought or it. Accidents,
too. might prolong the time of operation,
or unforeseen complications might arise
will, h woultl require deetter lm isions. pass
ing beyond the field of Insensibility.
"Anaesthesia.'' continued the physician,
"is mainly the result of pressure on the
nerve endings, by the fluid introduced, and
is consequently mechanical in its nature.
An injection of water will produce a like
result to the Injection of other fluids, hut
it.s effeel will be more transient, and It Is
therefore dangerous except in c-ases of the
greatest, speed in operation. I am not so
sanguine alhtut the results of Prof. Par
vin's method as he himself It, but will give
it a trial."

HIDDEN IN THE HEAVY FOG
Great White Clouds Envelopsd the
City Early This Morning.
Curs, and Vehicles Had to
Very Cautiously Clerks
laite Hlver Hoots Impeded
A regular London fog enveloped the
down-town part of the city this morning,
and for an hourso dense was thegreal white
film that it was impossible for anyone
tose-e but a few yards ahead. Even at that
instance moving objects had a ghostly,
uncertain appearance, and the buildings
along Pi'iinsjlvrnia avenue looked like
wierd pictures of goblin castles, trans
planted from fairy land to Washington.
The fog disptacctl the atmosphere, liore
down limbs or trees witii its -Height, and
settled In every nook and crevice from
the ground up. Cable car gripmen kept
up a continuous clanging or their gongs,
ami drivers of carts and wagons sent their
shouts or warning ahead of ttem. Tlie
bieycle bell, usually so noiy, was com
pletely lost in the medley of sounds.
Many department chrks were late at
their desks this mornlrg, and il:cy Jutly
blame the fog. One lady clerk stood en an
avenue corner trying to pcisuatle a carlo
stop. She wavetl her hands, umbrella and
everything else she had, and shouted at
the top of fcer voice, but with clanging bells
the cars went on. The gripmen and con
ductors couldn't see two Icet from the cars,
and unless some one waved a lighted lan
tern they never stoppeei.
It was getting close to nine o'clock when
one luckless clerk rushed Irnntically out
to get a car. He knew the iiseiessness of
trying to stop it, so he made a grab through
the log and caught the handle of the rear
dash. When I e swung around to nut his
fool on.snmc thing It wasn't there, and the
fog wasn't quite heavy enougli to holdlilm"
The conductor heard him rail, and for
once the car was stopped. The clerk was
nicked up, scraped oil, and after shaking
himself together decided that he was not
hurt, and got aboard. ,
Down on the river the fog was even denser
than It was uptown. Alter essaying to
make a couple or trips, theferryboals were
compelled to bold up until the mist cleared,
and all river traffic was suspended. The
big Norfolk boats got In before the fog
became so dense, otherwise they would
probably lie down the river yet.
For several mile-s around the city. In low
parts of the country, the fog prevailetl,
and a number or trains were late because
or It. Owing to the danger of running
through the country in such a dense fog,
they were compelled to slow up and feet
their way along.
About 9:30 o'clock, however, the sun,
which had been making feeble efforts to
sbincatlmnrmng, managed to break th rough
the riltof clouds that pent up its rajs, and
Its effects were Instantaneous.
In a. very few minutes the fog was dis
persed, and the city resumed. its natural
appearance, albeit a trifle damp and mirky.
Fortunately there were no accidents of a

, Tttlt ot Coiiseeiueiice More Hppiihli

- There Are Democrats.
According to Senator Gorman, tlie Cleve

Mr. Gorman, who so vigorously attacked
the attitutte anil conduct of Mr. Cleveland
toward his party In the Senate during the
battle over the present tariff law, does not
regard the result In Maryland as cither a
personal rebuke to himself or as a vindica
tion of Mr. Cleveland.
Senator Gorman returned to Washington
last night front New York. He came down
town n3 suave as ever and cheerfully dis
cussed the recent landslide In Maryland
with all who broached tho subject.
He thowed no tenderness ot the question,
and when some friends sought to express
their sympathy for him, Intimating that
th1 Democratic defeat was a liersoual re
buke to him, he promptly deprecated that
- HIS EXPLANATION.
"The vote In Mar land cannot he re
garded as a personal defeat of myself or
as a reflection upon my political record,"
"No iierson well Informed as to Mary
laud politics can so regarel It. I liave never
thought of aiiologlzlng to anybody for any
thing In tlie record or my political career,
and I find no occasion lo begin apologizing
"The verdict delivered at tlie polls in
Maryland on November 5 was in no way
IHTsonal against me, because there was no
Democratic revolt of consequence."
"What. Senator Gorman, no Democratic
revolt or disaffection;"
"No, none of consequence. Tlie Dem-
ocratlc vote polled In the S ate was within
two thousand or the highest record the
party ever made. That In an off car
certainly shows that the Democracy of
Maryland was practically unlmjiaired by
intemal or factional discussion.
"Tlie fact Is that Maryland went Repub
lican because It contalncsl more Republicans
than ever before more Republicans than
Democrats who voted. No mathematics
are needed, therefore, to explain the re
sult. "Only a year ago the Republican voto
throughout Maryland exceeded the Demo
cratic vote by three thousand, and then
nobody pretended to charge that result
to opposition to me, or to any personal dis
satisfaction. The plain truth is that the
sentiment In Maryland In ravoror protce
textlon has Ijrgely Increased.
BROUGHT IN REPUBLICANS.
"There are. for example.in my own county
several woolen mills. Formerly these
mills turned out fabrics of a rough ami
cheap kind, but within the past three years
tht-33 mills have begun to turu out higher
grades of products.
"To do this they have liecn forced to bring
from New England a large iiuruttcr of
skilled laliorers, most of venom arc Repub
licans. That condition is repeated in other
counties of Maryland, and this alone is
enough to accouut for a large increase In
the Republican vote.
".Moreover, there are many Democrats
In Maryland who believe in protection.
That has caused a change, because these
protection Democrats believe that Re
publican control or the Government will
mean permjnence lo the lsihey or protec
tion. "In eve-ry class the sentiment in favorof
protection has strengthened, and the de
pression of the last two jears has caused
many to turn for relief to the -party not
in iower, but with a consistent re-cortl
In lavor of protection to home industries.
There Is also to he taken Into account the
Junior Order of American Met hanics. This
order is composed mostly or voting men who
have nev er before taken an active part In
politics. It Is estimated that in Ilalttmore
nlone 17,000 young men east their first
vote this year, and through the intluence
or this order most of their ballots were
throevn against the Dein,cratle ticket."

The bull was about son yards trom them,

I love the South Just as well
as any Georgian can. and we will ride to
our stirrups in blood before we will let the
Hag or the Union he torn from its resting
place. We love Massachusetts fop-the lives
of her great men, antl we love Georgia for
the lireof that great patriot and big-hearted
man Henry W. Grady and nn elotibt his
spirit, in the keeping of Ids God, is hover
ing above his beloved country, and smiles
benignly down upon this scene of brotherly
love, and the direct- fruits of his labors;
but bear In mlntl, that Kentucky is the heme
or some ot the Sonth's greatest men. It was
old Kentucky that gaye birth to some of
the noble spirits that maglit for the South's
"The old line of Mason and Dixon, If
such a line ever did exist, has been wiped
away. Let us forever obliterate Its every
trace today. There Is no North, nor
South, It Is a great llbcrty-loving people,
and we aro the same anil inseparable."
