Were Due to Patent Medicines, According to Figures Bated on Medical Certificate!. The press committee of the Proprie tary Association of America will pre sent at the next meeting of that body n report showing tho number of acci dental deaths caused hy patent medi cines In tho two years ending June 30, 1307, as compared with d'.aths from other causes. Almost Immediately after the begin ning of the latest crusade against proprietary medicines this committee was Instructed to collect data. This work was done through the clipping bureaus, which furnished accounts of all deaths, exclusive of suicide, due to the misuse of medicines, drugs or poisons. The result showed that only three per cent, could bo traced di rectly to the products made by tho members of the association. The greatest care Is said to have heen exercised In tubulating tho fig ures received. Whenever the cnusn of death was doubtful, special Inves tigation was made, no matter where the case might have occurred. The work of assorting and preparing the record was done In ('hlcago, mid tho original clippings and correspondence are In Ihe possession of Krvlu P. Kemp, 1S4 I.a Salle street, that city, the association's publicity uc nt. The report says. In part: "A large number of accidents, re Bulling fntnlly or otherwise, were caused by the carelessness of persons who left (liugn, medicines or poisons within the reach of children. A large number, also, were caused by persons going to medlclno cabinets In the dark and taking down the wrong bottle. In no cane reported was any medicine, 'patent' or otherwise, held responsible for Injury or deuth except when left within the reach of children or taken or administered In gross overdose." The committee says thnt It Is un likely that any cbbcs of deuth from tho u so of patent medlclno escaped the newspapers, but that it Is prob able that death from the causes tabu lated did occur without receiving pub licity. Physlclnns, of course, report the causes of death. Tho committee says that they would be the latit to suppress tho camso If due to the use of medicine not requlnrly prescribed. A recapitulation of tho committee's findings show 4. "05 cases of poisoning, of which 1.7S3 were fatal. The great est number of enses, 1,6,1C, with 803 caths, Is attributed to niert'rinos other than proprietary remedies. There aro on tho list 90 cases of sick ness nnd 43 deaths duo to patent medi cines. Analyzing Its statistics, the commit tee finds 201 cases of sickness, with 4.1 deaths, due lo strychnine tablets. which are among physicians' favorltn remedies and are often loft within the reach of children. T'nder the head of mlseellaneo'is prescriptions are grouped 44 raM where, the report says, it has been Im possible after diligent Ini-ulry to as certain the name or the character of the drug or medicine which caused In jury or death, beyond the fact that the medicine or drug; was prescribed by a physician. Of these cases 18 were fatal. The committee says: "I'nder the head of 'Ail Palent Medicines' are grouped nil those rem idles which nre recognized ns patent medicines and which are advertised direct lo the public for Internal use. Competent authorities -ny that at least one-half of the m"(llclnes taken In the Vijed Slates are of the kind known as 'patent medicine,' and yet In two years among SO.000.000 people there have been Ult ninety cases (forty-three fatul) that hnve been re ported In the newspapers from the use or misuse of theso remedies." Not In a single fully sulisliuitinted case Ib It ever charged that any pat ent medicine In recommended doses was Injurious. In this connection it should he understood that In making death certificates and In reporting cubcb of Injury to the newspapers from which these cases wero secured, a physician had tho final word, and in this connection is thero any prob ability that the doctor will hide his own carelessness or neglect or thnt of fellow practitioner whose support he may want at some time, and It there even a possibility that he might hide any responsibility that could bo thrown at a patent medicine? Ask yourself these questions. Then when you hnve foimd the answer, consider thnt during r.ll this most thorough and careful Investigation covering a period of two years. In not a single established case was It Bhown that patent medlclno in recommended doses was injurious. Tho most remnrkablo case reported was that of an Itallau laborer in New York who suffered from pains in the chest. A physician ordered a porous plaster which the patient ate, with fatal results.

"And let some omor fellow lux orlulo on the Insurance?" cxclnfmed the wise young man.

TARIFF REFORM. 2ergres Cannot Delegate Its Power to Raise Revenue. ?t has heen suggested that the R ''lean plan for revision nf the tariff ,hali be the creation of a commlBslon ! Ich shall be uuthorlssed to "gradual ly change tho schedules." As the member of the commission would bo named by pinndpnt congress and would, therefore, be a partisan com mission, It is quite possible that the tariff mlpjit he revised higher Instead nf lowering tho rntcs. The constitu tion provides that "all hills for rais ing revenue shall originate In tho houiio of representatives." and, there fore, congress cannot delegato the power-to establish, reduce or Increase the tariff on Imports because it raises revenue. Hnch ft commission, if con ress shall appoint one, would have no power lo revise Ihe tariff, It could ' but recommend such change In the law, or a new low as Its members .vuild agro" tiion. If a nonpartisan .commission of tariff experts wns ere iled to report In congress such amend ments lo the present law as appeared desirable, and If II were possible to maginri the Republican lenders really intent Ck lng the tariff rates for the benefit oi tV'i people, Instead of for the preterit; of the trusts, valuable legislation Wi'.uld undoubtedly result. I'm with both houses of congress con trolled hy the ultra protection Inter ests, how could such nonpartisan ac tion be expected? Practically the peo ple must decide. If tiny want tariff re form, hy Baying so at the polls when voting for congressmen or Ktnte legis lators who elect I'nlted Slates sena tors If they want the present svstem if protecting the trusts continued they v, 111 vole for Republicans. If they de sire tariff reform they will vote for Democrats. Protpecive Coal Famine. The railroads have many sins to answer for, but It is certainly not fair to ( barge up a winter coal famine to them In advance of such a calamity. The railroads under the law cannot be coal dealers, and, therefore. It Is not their duty to carry conl unless It is shipped by somo firm or Individual. Secretary Wilson, who has been traveling 111 the western states, re ports upon his return to Washington that the people there are uneasy and apprehensive of a coal famine next winter. As ho reports the people of the west very prosperous and plenty of money In circulation there, why do not these npprehenslvo peoplo ordof their coal now, Instead of waiting un til winter conies? Provident peoplo buy their coal In tho summer when It Is cheaper, and If those who hnve tho means to Iny in a stock have done so and the dealers have their usual win ter supply on hnnd for the poorer pur chasers to buy from band to mouth, there uhould be no coal famine. It Is to be presumed that coul or dered now would be delivered In the ordinary course of Ireight delivery; if not, and there Is unusual delay, thero will he good cause of complaint und the railroads will be held responsible. When snow blockades come, It Is im possible to run freight trains with regularity, and nobody knows this bet ter I ha:i the people of the northweut urn stales, and It Is their duty lo pre pare for such contingencies and not suffer through their own ahlftlessnoss, aud Iben blame It on the railroads (live the devil his due, and every one, even the plundering corporations, a sipi.irc deal. Lese-Majcsty. All Republican congressmen do not bow the knee to the Roosevelt Idol and Representative McCall of Massa chusetts is one of them. It may hi that at Oyster Hay Mr. Mcall Is on the index as an undesirable cltliien or has been relegated lo the Ananias class, or what he says may be vlowed as similar to the vaporlngs of a na ture fuker, but all this does not re press him from speaking his mind on the tendency to centralize all power ut Washington. Having heen selected to address his follow citizens at tho Murshfleld fair, this Republican trlb uno of the people declared: "You are liable somo day to have a president supremely lucking in the qualities of a statesman, one who Is egotistic, im milslve. of immature Judgment, a more glutton of the limelight, ready to bar tcr away prosperity and evcu bis eoun try' freedom for momontary applause. "If ho Is an autocrat such as he Is, such for the ll mo will your country be. Instead of a mighty nation, great in her physical strength and greater In her moral qualities, you have a strut ting, confiscating, shrieking, meddling America. God save us from aucb dBy!" If some rabid Socialist had painted this word picture of the president, it would be a question whether he was fit lo be at large, but such lese-majesty from ono who Is counted safe aud sane, and able aud honest, Bhows the great gulf which is dividing tho Re publican parly into irreparable fac tious. Republican Graft Indiana papers charge that the press bureau of Vice President Fair- batiks 1 being conducted by Qoorge Tl.

What they moan, probably is that Lock wood is paid $1,000 a year for public service, yet sounds his time in the private and persons! serv ice of Fairbanks a a press agent "Ingonulty In Stating" is tbe bead. log of an article now going the round of the press.
