Where the “Queen Louise” Ran Ashore on Manasquan Reef " I . ..—.- . • - a Health Experts Say Dishonest Establishments Will Utilize Popular Interest. NEW YORK, Feb. 7.—The New York city department of health today issued a warning against quacks who might seek to take advantage of the popular interest aroused by recent ex periments with radium in the treat ment of cancer. In its report the de partment says: “In view of the popular furore which the radium treatment of cancer has excited in this country, it seems advisable to sound a note of warning. According to the best authorities, the radium treatment of cancer is yet a matter of experiment, and what suc cessful results have been obtained concern chiefly the treatment of ex ternal cancers, particularly those of the skin. Even though radium may eventually prove of much greater value than has been the case in the past, it must not be overlooked that the first principle in cancer is still early recognition and early, thorough removal. “Thus far there is practically no proof that radium has finally cured any one case of advanced or dissem inated cancer. There is every reason that the popular interest aroused in the radium treatment of cancer will be utilized by a large number of dis honest money-getting establishments conducted by individuals w-ith little or no radium and who have no knowl edge of its use. This has been the ex perience in Europe, where the popu lar enthusiasm about radium ap peared earlier than it did here. The great danger, of course, in all these 'cures’ Is the valuable time which may be wasted, thus frequently dis sipating all chances of cure by surgi cal means.” Father and Son Sentenced. ELIZABETH, Feb. X—Frederick Meise, owner of the cafe at 1000 Eliza beth avenue, raided by Prosecutor Stein as a disorderly place, was sen tenced today to pay a fine of $500, and his son, Walter, was sentenced to not more than three years in State’s prison.

Three members of Christ Reformed Church, at Washington and Delevan avenues, are preparing a few sur prises for the next meeting of the Newark Classls, which will take up the proposition of deposing Rev. Per dval H. Barker from Christ Church. The meeting Is scheduled to be held next Friday In the North Reformed Church, Broad and Bridge streets. While members of the Classls have been searching the record of Mr. Bar ker before he came to this city, about a year ago, the church members have also been doing some Investigating. It Is understood that a charge will be made to the effect that the stated clerk of the Neosha Presbytery, which dropped Mr. Barker from the minis try, disregarded several rules of the Presbyterian book of discipline. One of the rules set forth in this book, recognized as the authority in Presbyterian church proceedings, states that copies of the trial record at a minister’s trial must be fur nished to both the complainant and the defendant. When Mr. Barker was tried by the Kansas Presbytery he was suspended and came to this city. After he had been preaching at the Woodslde church for some time, Mr. Barker wrote to the stated clerk of the Neosha Presbytery, requesting i the latter to forward a copy of the trial record at Mr. Barker's expense A check accompanied the request but this was returned without the re quired copy of the testimony. The stated clerk in the western town drew up the charges against him, says Mr. Barker, and also acted as one of the seven judges at the trial. The action of the stated clerk In making the charges and then pass ing on the truth of them Is said to be In violation of the rules, as well as void of proprelty. The Newark Classls will also be asked to Investigate the alleged evi dences of "malicious prosecution" to which Mr. Barker and members of 'his consistory Tilalm he has been sub jected. A well-known Presbyterian clergyman of this city stated that he never heard of another Instance where the. findings of a presbytery had been published broadcast, as waa the case when the Neosha Presby tery found Mr. Barker guilty of "lying." At the recent meeting of the New ark Presbytery a communication from Stated Clerk McCombs, of Neosha, Kan., relative to the Barker controversy was read. The letter In cluded the information that the West ern presbytery had voted to send the letter "to all stated clerks throughout the United States.” This resolution was branded as indicative of “perse cution" on the floor at the meeting of the local presbytery. Gun and Several Pencils Pound in His Room; He Is Held for Investigation George Brown, seventeen years old. of 80 Clinton street, was arraigned before Acting Judge Rooney In the First Precinct Police Court today and held for a further investigation as to where he procured a loaded revolver and several packages of pencils which were found in his room last night. Patrolmen O’Connor, Murray and Collins, of the First precinct, heard two revolver shots ring out about midnight, and traced them to 94 Com merce street. They went into the house, and were told that Brown had been there to see his mother and that he fired the shots out of the window. Just wh?, Brown fired the shots is not known The policemen then went to Brown’s room, but received no response w’hen they knocked at the door of his room. Patrolman Murray got a key, and they found Brown in bed. He said he had been asleep for some time, but the patrolmen found that his outer clothing, which was hanging over a chair, was wet from the rain. He denied having fired any shots, but a loaded revolver was found in a bureau drawer. The policemen also found several packages of lead pen cils and other articles. This fSct caused them to suspect that a notion store had been robbed. He will be held until tomorrow morning, and, if the result of the investigation war rants, he will be held longer.

Public Welfare Committee to Probe Affairs and Report to the People. A campaign to educate the publle in matters of county government ■will be started here on Monday under the rijruction of the Public Welfare Com mittee. Dr. William H. Allen and his assistants in the Municipal Research Bureau, of New York, will investi gate conditions in public institutions of Essex county and make public their findings. Miss Emily Hamblen, secretary of the committee, made it plain today that the activities of the organiza tion will be directed toward public education and betterment, and not as a "muckraking" campaign. The public eiticials of each department investigated are expected to co-oper ate with the committee’s workers, and no report will be published un less the officials involved have veri fied the statement of conditions in their bailiwicks. "We expect to secure the indorse ment of the plans formulated as a re * suit of our investigations, and these indorsements probably will come from the officials in charge as well as our experts. Of course we can foresee the probability that in the event of recommending a radical change in any department we are likely to meet with some opposition. However, the men who will conduct the work will recommend only the systems which have been tried and not found wanting in other counties and municipalities." The meeting last night was an exe cutive session of the committee and was attended by representatives of other civic bodies.
