Prohibits the Interstate
Shipping of Liquor Into
DryjTerritory from An
other State
A very important bill was pul
upon its passage List Saturday ii
the Lower House nt Washington
which is of great interest onr
which directly effects condition
here in our own district. The Webl
Liquor Bill, which is constructed tc
put a stop to the practice of ship
ping intoxicating liquors from out
state to another regardless of wheth
er or not that state has voted to bt
'!dry" came to n vote and passer
by the overwhelming majority o
240 to G5. The same hill pns'sei
the Senate this week and all thai
it pow lacks is the Presidents signa
ture to become a law.
This will be one of the greates
temperance victories woi lor some
time, ns this condition has confront
ed them in this State at ererv turn
where they were making a fight to
kei p liquor out of a certain com
munity. Recently when our own
law making bodies passed law
preventing the shipping of liquor
from any section of the State to o
section voted "dry" by that com
munity, the wholesale houses and
distilleries established branch office
just across the Stntc border line
and would ship their products out
of the State and then have it ship
ped back into which ever community
ordered it, and there was no law
regulating this interstate shipment
heretofore. This then will have a
still greater tendency to climinatt
the "boot-leggers." for they woulc
have to go where the liquor is legal
ly sold and bring it back in person,
and in this manner they would a
sume greater risk of being detecttt
and as our laws are now very stru
upon this mutter it can easily 1
seen where the profits would l
very small even if not interfcrrn
with, and when you add tin
amount that would be paid in lint
which everyone would have to pa
soniet or later who deals in tl.i I
stufl, the number who care to tnlt 1
the risk will be very small indeu ,
greater the reason why the wou J
be easier caught.
The Kentucky delegation wa
split on this vote last Saturday,
but we arc glad to note that botl

Report Made by German
Scientists Assert that
It Is Efficient
Insist, However Upon Qiv
inp; it Further Tests
Before Being Ab
solutely Sure
An article in Sunday's Louisville
Herald which is claimed to be an
exclusive interview with Govern
mene officials of Germany relative
to the discovery of the tuberculosis
serum by Ur. Friedraaun gives out
the information that the leading
scientists and medical men of that
country are convinced that it is a
wonderful discovery. The German
Government has ordered that nil
information and data available he
obtained upon this subject nnd
be printed and scattered for the in
formation of their citizens nnd fur
the benefit of the world at large,
.ind in these paragraphs it is stated
hat there have been some remark
able cures affected and wonderfnl
results obtained bv the use of this
serum by Dr. Friedmnun. This
fact is acknowledged by the leading
scientists who have subjected some
of their patients to his treatment
and who state that they have re
turned cured.
All arc not, however, ready to ac
cept this discovery as perfect but
prefer to make tests themselves be
fore thoroughly committing them
selves. The majority of these physicians
have turned cases they regarded as
hopeless over to Dr. Friedmann for
treatment nnd were amazed over
successful cures effected.
The new treatment consists of the
injection of a solution prepared by
the doctor himself, which he says
contains living non-virulent haccilli
taken Ironi the cold-blooded nni
mills iu contradistinction to the vir
ulent organism contained in KochV
tuberculin and other tuberculosis
remedies. Up to November 18, last
Dr. Friedmann claims to have
treated 1.1S2 cases and saidinnocu
lation was an assured success.
Dr. Friedmann has so far conceal
ed the method of ptcparing his rem
edy for use. He announces that he
docs not want to disclose this se
cret until he is prepared to manii.
facture it in sufficient quantities to
supply the profession At present
he is treating nil cases that come to
his institute in llerlin.
The consul reports that the medi
cal profession in Berlin have not ac
cepted the reined as of practical
use, and reserve judgement until
they have been given an opportun
ity to make their own tests. All
seem to admit however, that Ur
Friedmnun ha effected some won
derful cures, and they arc interested
iu the discovery.
