Morton for misuse of the mails in connection with mining frauds, President Wilson expressly stated that he did so for the purpose of retoring the aged physician's right to practice his profession. Words of this import were actually written into the pardon. ' And yet the medioal law of New York seemingly excludes one in Dr. Morton's position from this priv ilege. Governor Dix pardoned two such men, but it was held that his act in each case, while effecting a restoration to citinenship, did not carry with it the right to practice medicine, on which the statute i exceedingly rigid. Members of the medical society gen erally svmpathize with the president's purpose,' and are hopeful that a way can be found, even if the state law has to be amended, to permit the mispnided Morton to resume the career for which he is best fitted. He has been a spe cialist in the medical use of static and other forms of electricity, and in the opinion of many observers might have contributed materially to the world's knowledge of this rather vaguely under stood phase of therapeutics, had he ad hered to scientific researches. In offering the aged man more than the law of his own state would allow, President Wilson overlooked a precau tion once taken by Abraham Lincoln. Some women in Iowa wrote to ask if at a coming church fair they might have a sort of lottery enterprise which they described. He answered ajnd this i found in his published paper that if the state of Iowa had no law against what they planned, he certainly would interpose no bjections.: Boston Herald.
