The principal feature of this Is a court

When a contest arises, the court summons
witnesses from ench side ot tho cont rover- place. The President dies; but the repub
sy, hears arguments from each and an- lie lives; and It shoeild be strengtheneel
nounres its decision, which, with (he tes- rathcr tlmn weaKcnctl by Hs ic,hon ot sor

sides must obey. The labor unions are, wo row I
believe, all rrculieel to be Incorporate 1
and to hnvo sonio legal nnd responsible

are respected and obeyed.
The sstom, when Introduced, was re

strong opposition by the employers; but
as It gradually came into pnu t lee the- fe ars
and objections of each dlnpi enrcel. The
court has been wise nnd eonslderato of th

Doubtless the system is one which we in
this country might look Into with profit,
of course conditions vary much. In the two
countries, and vvhu Is successful In one
might not work well In the other. The en

The suddenness with which the whole
nntlon was plunged from the pinnacle ot
hope and confidence that President Mc
Klnloy would surely recover to tho cer
tainties of national loss Irreparable and
popular grief inconsolable consequent up
on his death, has made It Incumbent upon
tin- surgcona and physicians to offer some
explanation of the way in which the pub
lic wns lead to look for his testoration to
health. This apparent neccs-slty has lr el
to published announcements by different
authorities In the case which shed Inter-e-.-tlng
light on the situation.
l'.efnre pte,cedlng to a cumnarlson of the
assertions of the medical and surgical
experts who attended Ptesident MeKlnlcy
It may ); proiltable to consider the sit
uation as It existed so far as the public
was concerned, it Is now evident that tho
whole American people were so Intensely
anxious for tho beloved President'!, ie
covery, that they allowed themselves to be
unduly encouraged nnd Ignored symptoms
and indications which In ordinary cases
hav.- been given proper emphasis and im
portance. The people knew from experi

The manner In which the distinguished
patient rallied and seemed to recover
sttenptb nnd spirits furnished ground
fcr marked optimism In connec
tion .with his case, and yet there remain
ed the high temperature anil rapid pulse
which betokened danger. Locnl physicians
everywhere occasionally spoke of the- un
favorable symptoms noted, but tho pro

1 urtner light is likely to bo shed on this
mootetl point since word comes from litif-
fnlo that Dr. Herman Mntzlnger, assist
ed by I3r. Henry It. Oaylord of tho state
pathological laboratory and Herbert M.
Mill, tho city chomlst, Is making a
bacteriological analysis of some of the of
feeted parts to determine whether the bul
lets lirrtl from the assassin's revolver
beire some poisonous substnnce. As con
siderable time ls required for the com
pletion of the work, It Is not expected
thnt the result nf this supplementary In- O. P. ttay, Ormond Cole, K. C. Mower, "llls advisors collectively, as he had pi.
vestlgation cnr. be announced before next Samuel Hi'givood, c. if. Sl lpman. v lously done individually, requesting them
week. Should these Investigators disagree
as have their predecessors, then, indeed,
would tile public be left in doubt regard-
Ing somo ot tho features of this remarka
ble case.
In tho meantime interesting matters
have come to light in connection with
the treatment ot President MeKlnlcy. Dr.
Wasdln ls one whom Dr. Mann, tho
operating surgeon, pronounces a superior
authority on such matters and whose
tlnorles and conclusions he believes to
be entitled to consideration. In reply to
the questions of a representative of the
press with reference to tho dressing of
the wound which It will bo remi-mbeinl
vvn stated In a bulletin to have resulted
In improvement in Presblent McKlnley's
ci. ii. .lliou, Dr. Wasdln said:
,.. , ,. iiii. .
On lucselay t was , c.-lded to open the)
oxtrrlor wound in the abilnmcn. There had
been some Irritations there, and we de-
cieleel to llnd the cause. At first, we to-j);
out a few ot the stitches and, Intel, luid
np.-n the entire Incision, leaving an op- n
ing in this wound live inches long ami
three' inches deep. It requlri-d no eeffeitt
t" open tho incision. We Immediately
fcand ill th" track of tho bullet throah
the flesh nnd fatty tissue that g.ingre-no
heel developed. None of the parts other
thin those around the Immediate bullet
wound were affected. Se removed this
alteetcel tl.-sue cleansed the wound and
cle-sid It.'
"When you found that gangrene existed
In the surface wound was it not an In
die niton thnt It had penerated deeper?"
"No. It was not. We ellhcussrel the stlb
Jc t thoroughly, explornl as far ns wm
could, and thero was no Indication that
the process had continued Into the ab
dominal cavity."
W Ith reference to tho high pulse Dr.
Wasdln mude this Interesting statement:
Tho case of President McKlnley stnnils
absolutely unique in the history of stir
g. t y. From the time ot the first operation
up to the time the stitches were reinov.d
from the surface wound, there was no in
dication, outwardly, which would Indicate
that there vvnb an Internal process which
would result In elc.cth.
"Tho case presented many complex feat
ure s. 1 lie conllmicil high pulse was a con
statu puzzle tn the consulting htaff. At
flit we attributed It to the shock follow
ing the Impact of the bullet on the breast,
In taring In some manner tho muscles ot
the heart.
"We then began tn administer digitalis.
T' Is line! no effect In ri elm-lug the pulse.
We dlseontlniieil the use of digitalis and
fraud thnt the heart action continued tho
nine ns at llrst. On the second clay thero
w is nn accentuatid second soundit was
n- vc-r n heart action that we could look
for In a man In Sir. SIcKlnlc-y's condition
of henltb. This clement of sustained weak
ness was a conundrum that confront, el all
of us up to the time wo found, while pcr
f. lining the autopsy, that gangrene had
developed. Then It was easily accejiintc el
for "
Ono of the most Interesting features of
Dr Wnseltu's lengthy statement referred
to tho results of the autopsy. He said en
this point:
"I have seen inieiiv eiinirrenenim enpi.s.
but none Iu which the parts lacerated by
the- bullet were- so completely and uniform-
1, affected. The entile tract of the, wound
from the outer surfneo of the abdomen,
through the tissue, fat, stomach, ami nh-
dome it cavity Illicit of the stomne-h was
thoroughly and completely gangrened.
"The wound In the posterior wall of tho
sttmiach was p u tlctilai ly affcetcd, the """" ",B
g..ngrene extending for a inJIus of almost physicians, Dr. Pllss and Hamilton sign

"I have never seen such a condition.
When the stomach was rcmeeveel the tissue
bore no reseiublane e to human tissue, anil,
In fact, was as bloodless as, anil much
res. mbltd, a piece- of clay. "
It Is slgnlllcant that Dr. Park, when
questioned about the case for miblleatlon,
de clared that he hud been so misquoted
thnt he would Insist upon having his st .te-
mcnt rc-duced to writing, lie said:
"There Is no reason to believe that
poison wns Introdii ed Into the wounds.
The giingmie was caused by the secretion
of the pancreas escaping f...... the wound

differs from Dr. Wnsclln as tepards v irloi's
theories in the case lint there is -il-n .i I
conflict as to statement of fact. Dr. Her
man Mynter. who assisted at th" first
operation, Is arrayed against Dr. P.m m
the statement affecting the perforation of'
the- pancreas, and against Dr. is llt,
and Dr. Mann ns to the presence of ga i
gteno on the surface wound. Dr Mi n,
practically accused Dr. Park of being d - 1
llclent in knowledge of anatomv by - iy
lug that It would have been lmposlhlr In
view of the range taken by the l ull t for
II to have passcel through both w ill- of
the stomach, clipped rff the top r.- tl.o
left kidney and also have passed thio .gh '
the pancreas. Tho pancreas, he declared,
was nut of range. When asked whether
tlio consulting staff n greed with Dr M- I
Httrney In the positive statement that Sic
Klnley would recover Dr. Mann replied
In the negative nnd said: j
"I could not then understand anil di
not iinib rstand now, vvhv Dr. Me liurrey
Hindi thnt statement. I felt at the turn
that I wanted myself to Issue a st-it -mint
In a manner to temper Ills, p .! I

so. ami might convey to the publb th it
the staff was not a unit In Its belle f Th
wns the only matter on which we eh -agreed,
anil as the path-nt wns in s ith
a satisfactory condition. I concluded 11 t
to Issue any statements, although SlcRtir
ney's was unjustllhible."
In the meantime the- grent public was
hoping for Sir. SIcKlnh'v s recovery, ami
basing Its expectations en the tidings re-
eelved from the l-e elslde e.f the be love. 1

However grcntly the phvsh-lans may dif
fer ns to various other aspects of Presi
dent McKlnley's case, It is agreed that h
was a doomed man from tho outsit, In
