A Beautiful Colored Cover by Christy ROENTGEN RAYS IN CURE EOR CANCER Expert Says Reputable Practi? tioners Should Use This Treatment. TECHNICAL DISCUSSIONS Bad Teeth Help to Cau se Eni lcpsy?Address of Welcome Made. Post-operative Roentgenlzation in the treatment of cancer should be taken out of the hands of quackery nnd made a part of the routine prac , Use of every X-ray practitioner, ac j cording to Dr. Clarence K Skinner, of I New Haven, who read the second pa I per at the opening session yesterday ' of the American Roentgen Hay So ; piety, now In annual session at the ? .lefferson Hotel. The reputation of the ; X-ray for efficacy in th? treatment of I cancer, stated the New Haven doctor, has suffered because of the large num j ber of Irresponsible men who are In ? a highly unsclentigc manner making ? use of thla new agency. He advocat j ed a wider use of the rays in conr.er ; tlon with the -treatment of cancerous I tumors?especially Its employment ae I a post-operative, precautionary meas? ure. He adduced numerous cases which have come under hlR experience In i which the Roentgen rays have been ..employed with remarkable curative : effects, and made out a strong case for i their use. A round table discussion of the p.t I per followed, and was led by Dr. I George E. Pfahler. of Philadelphia I For the most part It indorsed the posi | tlon taken by Dr. Skinner nnd broucht to the attention of the convention 'numerous other cases pending to ,sup j port the Connecticut specialist. Five Other Addremtc?. } Five other addresses featured the 'first day of the convention. The meet? ing was formally opened at !>:30 A. M : wifh an executive session lasting twe hours devoted to the consideration of report^ from various officers and com ' mlttees. The first address of the morn ! Ing session was delivered by Dr. James l W Hunter, Jr.. of Norfolk, on ' The j Roentgen Rays In Hypertrophled Pro I state?A Therapeutic Study." i It was on able treatment of a sub ; Ject holding a good deal of Interest i for the medical profession, but too I studded with technical terms and oth ! erwlse too esoteric to appeal readily I to the lay mind. This criticism, it must ; be admitted, is Applicable to every one j of yesterday's addresses, and Is not the peculiar property of Dr. Hunter's papet. Discussion which followed was inau rated by Dr. George C. Johnson, ol Plttsburg. Mechanical Diagnosis. "The tendency nowadays of the best physicians everywhere." declared Dr. Arthur Holding, of Plttsburg. In th? discussion which followed his addres.s on "Lesions Presenting in Alleged Neu? rasthenia," "Is to rely more and more on mechanical diagnosis. There was a time when the physician relied solely upon his five inaccurate senses for the Interpretation of the malady with which he was confronted. There fol? lowed In rapid succession the thermom? eter, the miscropscope, the Roentgen rays and the blood pressure machine, until now the trained specialist has come to rely almost entirely upon these agencies for accurate dlagonses. No physician can afford to overlook the importance of these inventions, which are ready to his hand and which offer accuracy, where the old method offers little more than conjecture. Di? agnosis Is no longer a matter of opin? ion?It has become a mutter of fact.' Dr. Holding's paper was Illustrate'! with stereoptlcon alldes showing X-ray photographs of different mem? bers of the human body which, because of their diseased or Injured condition, had given rise to irritation with the result that the patient developed symp? toms Indicating the presence of neu? rasthenia. The speaker showed that many cases of alleged neurasthenia were, by means of the Roentgen ma? chine, easily proved to be temporary ailments Induced by lesions. The paper ,\vas discussed by Dr. E. H. Skinner, ol Kansas City, nnd a number of other delegates. Bud Teeth and Epilepsy. The fifth paper of the day was read by Dr. Henry K. Pancoast, of the med? ical faculty of, the University of Penn? sylvania. The full title of his subject was "The Importance of Dental Du fects as a Factor in the Etiology of Idiopathic Epilepsy." The lecture was Illustrated with stereopticon plates. Citing from numerous cases which had come under his treatment, the eminent Pennsylvania physician offered It as his opinion that dental defects of many kinds are directly responsible for many cases of epilepsy. ''I don't want to Uo understood as saying that dental defects are the! cause of epilepsy, but I do want to say that it is a cause." said Dr. Pancoast, replying to an objection raised by one; of the delegates to what he understood1 as too sweeping a ?tatoment. "I am1 firmly convinced of this because In numerous Instances, when the dental difficulty was removed, the epilepsy dls-j appeared." His theory was ably sup? ported by the delegates who partici? pated in the discussion which followed, most of thorn giving Instances from their own practice lending weight to the contention. The other two addresses of the day were delivered by Dr. Russell H Bo;;g.<, of Plttsburg. and by Dr. Sidney 1-angt., of Cincinnati. It oen 1 Ben-Clneni utogrnpb y. Dr. Lange was to have accompanied his lecture with a demonstration in Roentgen-cinematography, or the mov? ing picturo process applied* to radi? ography. The exhibition was looked forwaTd to with keen Interest by the delegates, and disappointment was felt that Dr. Lange found It Impossible to fulfill that part of tho program. Be? cause of- labor troubles in London, he stated, the delivery of the special films required was delayed until It was too late to prepare them for use at this meeting. He discussed In brief llie difficulties met with In getting satis? factory lenses and Illumination for thn' manufacture of films by tho radio graphic process and the progress that has been made to date In this branch of clnomntography in Europe. Tho best of these Ulms, ho sold, were far from satisfactory, although some of the French nnd German makers have succeeded In producing good films showing the action of the heart nnd respiratory organs. Addresses of Welcome. /The evening was taken up with ad? dresses of welcome by Mayor Rich Some Facts About Richmond and I Henrico Railway Company 8 EXTENDING OUR LINES I Bulletin No. 7 I Everyone living in Richmond, who watched the con- I I struction of the great Marshall street Viaduct, the Fulton i I Viaduct, the Power House and the Tracks of the Rich- 1 1 mond & Henrico Railway, knows very well that neither | I money nor labor has been spared in making this prop? erty strictly first class in every respect. The Power House is equipped with boilers, engines I and generators sufficient to supply a big car system 1 more than four times the size of our present limited car j line. Everybody in Richmond also knows that we have ] complied with the letter of our promise, but have done I Ia great deal more. We have a first class service under all conditions and at all times. > 1 Another fact in this connection which we wish to call 1 your attention to is?that all the territory between Broad st., on the North, and Main st., on the South, a distance 1 Iof eight blocks; Robinson st., on the West, Harrison st., on the East a distance of thirteen blocks; there is a vast territory thickly settled through which no car line runs. 1 Conditions such as these demand that a car line be run through this I section of the city. Thousands of people, including the confines of this territory, feel 1 that they are entitled to a car service?and a good one, to supply them with rapid transit to and from their home and business. We have asked the city council for the privilege of operating a strict- I ly first class car line for this territory. We hope and feel it will be the I will of everyone in this territory to give us their moral support in our j effort to give them the best possible service and one not excelled any- | \ where else.

HAPPfllAY FOR JUSTICE JOHN All men. Irrespective of creed, color j or class, yesterday rejoiced with the | One John (and everybody knows whoJ the One John ist in the celebration of I his sixty-seventh birthday, and all I wished the kindly, snow-haired Justice j tnomy, many happy returns of the day. Proceedings of Police Court were i hulted a few minutes when several sturdy members of his Police Depart? ment presented Justice Crutchlleld with a huge boquot of American rose*, and a letter from W. Douglus Gor? gon, member of the Board of Police Commissioners, was read to tho storn. but kindly-hearted, arbiter of the law. | The presentation was accompunled by a heart-touching speech by Mini tree Felkes, Commonwealth's Attor? ney. As the good wishes of tho throng sounded In his ears, tears, unbidden, rose to the eyes of JusUce John, and for a few minutes he was unable to answer the salutations of his friends. Then he thanked them In simple words, and bade thorn ns fair a voy? age ovor life's troubled sens as he had seen. As It Is with other men, Justice Crutchflcld has his friends and (they could not be called his foes) those who differ with him. But differences were forgotten, and all joined In wishing well to tho man who has per j formed his duty as he has seen it, and [who has served the public with all the talents which came to him at j birth. "Time files." he said yesterday af? j lernoon as other friends crowded uround him, "and % I had almost for ! gotten that this "was my birthday." i And his friends told him that he looks ! no older to-day than he did a score ' of years ago. They told him that hin I race is not yet run. that he has many, ? more years of usefulness to serve, andf i that Increasing age brings to him bub( ! increasing respect and veneration. And! i with such wishes ringing In his ears,': : Justice John returned to the bosom ofl j his family. It has been said that ninety per cent of the !
