BIG BROOKLYN BRIDGE IN
A DANGEROUS CONDITION

I
I New York Jan 13 Fearful lest the
I strain to which the Brooklyn Bridge
is being subjected will weaken it to
such an extent that a great catas
trophe might be possible engineers of
the department of bridges are report
ed to have determined that the struc
tture must be almost completely re
built To do this it will require at
least two years and meanwhile traffic
between New York and Brooklyn will
have to be diverted to the Williams
burg bridge and to the Brooklyn sub
way tunnel now in course of construc
tion Four or five years may elapse
before this can be accomplished
great traffic problems will have to be
solved beforehand
Though an inspection of the Brook
lyn bridge shows it to be in a safe
condition at present it is admitted by
all the engineers who have been con
nected with the work according to the
Herald that even steel has an age lim
it and that this limit is being rapidly
approached The structure is now
having to withstand a weight of traffic

Paris Jan 13Tha Associated
Press learns authoritatively that Rus
sias note addressed to the powers
relative to Chinas breaking neutrality
gives what Russia claims tobe abso
lute proof of Chinese breaches The
three main complaints are
First That the islands of Liatao in
the straits of Pe Chi Li opposite Port
Arthur have been constantly used by I
the Japanese without Chinese interfer
ence as a strategic base and a harbor
for Japanese torpedo boats
Second That the Chinese army on
the border has accepted the command
of Japanese officers
Third That Chinese firms bave
been constantly working in behalf of
the Japanese supplying them with pro
visions military accoutrements and
general war stores
The note lengthily sets forth the de
tails and complaints that China has
not given satisfactory explanat n of
the breaches of neutrality am that
therefore Russia advises the powers
that she intends to use complete liber
ty of action in regard to future abuse
of neutrality

SURE CURE
FOR CANCER
Scientists Said to be
Nearing Solution of
Problem
NO ANNOUNCEMENT
OF SUCCESS OF THE EXPERI
MENTS CAN YET BE MADE BUT
IT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE
FORTHCOMING INDUE TIME
Buffalo N Y Jan 13 Scientists
who since 1899 have been studying
cancer at the Graddock Pathological
Laboratory of the University of Buf
falo under the patronage of the state
of New York are stated to be prepar
ing a report which indicates that they
are nearing the solution of a great
problem
According to men who have taken
part in the work it has been proved
that cancer isa pasasytic disease in
fectious in type it has been trans
I planted and reproduced in perfectly
healthy animals that the reproduc
tion has been true cancer as it exists
in the human and that the disease in
animals has been cured by the ad
ministration of a serum prepared in
the laboratory What remains now is
the application of the results of animal
experimentation to the cure of the
disease as it exists in the human be
ing
Much Work to Be Dons
Much work remains to be done be
fore Dr Roswell Park director of the
laboratory will be prepared to make
the final announcement of a serum
suitable for use in the alleviation and
curd of cancer in human beings but
that this will be forthcoming in due
time is declared to be an almost as
sured fact Additional interest is
given to the matter because of the con
clusions reached recently by the can
cer commission of Harvard Medical
College when thatvbody gave up all
further consideration of the subject
and announced that cancer was
neither contagious nor hereditary
that the only cure for the disease was
i early operation at the hands of the
surgeon and that no discovery had
been made which offers any hope for
cure of the cancer
The white mice used for the experi
ments in the Buffalo laboratory were
obtained from Professor Jensen of Co
penhagen about a year ago Although
the animals died between New York
and Buffalo innoculation from ono
was successful in several mice and
by repeated transplantations a large
number of mice with cancer have been
available for experimentation The
occurrence which led to the discovery i
of the serum in question was the spon
taneous recovery of several mice I
which had been inoculated I
Secured an Antitoxine i
Possibility of the animal overcoming 1
the cancer led the experimenters to
investigate the conditions under which
this occurred and having for some
time in mind the possibility of the
serum treatment for cancer they con I
ducted a series of experiments which I
they declare have proved beyond
question that the blood of mice which
recovered possessed an antitoxiue
quality and when injected into mice
suffering with cancer stops the growth
and when the tumor is not too large
causes Its disappearance and leaves
the mouse so protected that the tu
mors do not return
Further experiments showed that
the mice cured in this manner like
wise possess in their blood an anti
toxine which works lii a similar way
showing that the cure is the result of
the development of a special immun
ity from cancer
The field which is opened by these
primary experiments is apparently a
difficult one but the scientists are i
fully confident that they prove in prin
ciple that not only is cancer curable
but extend the hope that some means
may be found to develop a similar
immune serum which can be applied
to human beings
