The Political activity of the Ameri can Medical Association has become so pronounced us to cause comment In political circles especially as the the avowed purpose of the Doctors of the "Regular'' or Allopathic school, of which the Association is chiefly com posed, Is to secure the passage of such laws as will not only prevent the sale of socalled "Patent" medicines, but will rejjtrlct the practice of medi cine and healing to the "schools'' now recognized. This in many states would prevent the growing practice of Os teopathy, and In nearly every state would prevent the healers of the Christian Science and mental science belief from practicing those sciences In which the faith of so many Intelli gent people Is so firmly rooted. The American Medical Association has a "Committee on Legislation," and the committee has correspond ents In practlcaHy every township — some 1C,000 correspondents in all. This committee at the last session of the American Medical Association held In June of this year expressed a hope that a larger number of physi cians than heretofore will offer them Belves as candidates for Congress at tbo first opportunity. In Its annual report this Committee said: "To meet the growing demands of the move ment, however, particularly if the work of active participation In State legislation Is undertaken, a larger clerical force must be employed." This is almost the first time In the history of the United States that any organized class has frankly avowed the purpose of capturing legislatures and dominating legislation in their own selfish Interests. The American Medical Association bas about 65,000 members of whom 27,000 aro "fully constituted mem bers'' and tho rest are members be cause of their affiliation with slate or local societies. The Association real estate In Chicago valued at $111,* 781.51 and Its total assets are $291, 567.89. Its liabilities, at the time of the annual report which was made at the June meeting, amounted to only $21.906. n owns The excess of assets over abilities is increasing at the rate of about $30,090 a year, and the purpose of the organization is to dominate the field of medicine, and by crushing nil competitions by securing the pas sage of prohibitive legislation, compel all of the people of the United States to pay a doctor's fee every time the most simple remedy is needed. II Punctured His Eloquence. A lawyer in Johnstown, N. Y., while defending a little boy who had been apprehended In the act of making surreptitious entrance under the fair grounds fence, drew for the Jury most pathetic picture of the prisoner's "poor old widowed mother with the tears streaming down her face and her gre-- head bowed In sorrow at tho thought of her little boy being Incar cerated.'' The youthful offender cut In at this point with "Please, sir, Mr. Lawyer, my mother ain't a widow." "Shut up, darn yob," said the lawyer. "I'm trying this case, not you."—Law Notes. ■ Puzzled.
