Dr. Morton's Pardon.
In pardoning Dr. William J. 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.
