Dr. A. W. Norton of San Francisco, j one of the most noted surgeons in the ! j country, wielded ihe knife in each, • case, assisted by local talent. The surgeon arrived in Yuma Saturday : evening and was able to depart for home Sunday afternoon. The names ! of the patients were withheld from publication.—Yuma Sun. j PARKER, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1917. A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY A CHEMIfcAL SUBSTANCE WHICH IS EXTREMELY USEFUL IN COMBATING INFECTIONS IN WOUNDS. BERKELEY, Cal., Oct. I.—Hav ing discovered a chemical substance which has proved remarkably suc cessful in curing wounds and in causing wounds to heal at once which for months, or even years, had refused to yield to treatment. Dr. T. Brailsford Robertson, professor of biochemistry in the University of California, has just executed a deed donating to the University of Califor nia air his patent rights in this valu able new substance,“Tethelin. All profits resulting from the discovery are to constitute an endowment, the income to be applied to medical re search. Tests of the new substance made In army hospitals in Europe and in civil hospitals in America have proved the great value of the dis covery. The appalling number of men wounded in the present war makes the discovery of especial time liness and value. Several substances and new methods have been found by the medical investigators of the world since the war began which are extremely useful in combating infections in wounds. The new sub stance, however, “Tethelin,” has a field of usefulness all its own—after I other methods have rendered the ■ tissues aseptic, and wounds still ; sometimes refuse to heal—especially j where frostbite, burns, or varicose i veins have injured the vitality of j the tissues. There are thousands of i such cases in Europe today and they j occupy the hospitals for an excep itionally long time, consuming drugs, | time, space, and food, and frequent ; ly such cases have to be discharged j unhealed. It is precisely these cases j —the most expensive and most dis ubling types of wounds—which j “Tethelin” will benefit since it stim- I ulates the sluggish tissues and en ables nature to work its own Repair. Not only in old wounds has ‘ Te thelin’’ been found valuable It nas been found that often open sores which for years have refused to heal have at once yielded to treatment with the new drug. In the past, the scientific man’s discoveries have usually been left for the “profiteer” to grow rich from. Wishing that the large prospective profits from this discovery of “Te thelin” should be devoted not to pri vate profit, but to the stimluation and support of further discoveries for the further benefit of humanity, Professor Robertson has relinquished all personal profit from his discovery of this growth-promoting substance. In the agreement by which the Re gents of the University of California have now accepted the trusteeship of this endowment for medical research It is provided that In case Professor Robertson should ever become phy sically disabled his present univer sity salary should be continued to him throughout his lifetime, from the proceeds of the discovery, or in ease of his death, to his wife for her lifetime. AH income above this will go to endow an institute ol medical research, devoted to research in med icine, and especially the research in the physiology, chemistry, and path- ! ology of growth. NEW ASSESSMENT LAW. There is much interest throughout Arizona in the status of owners of mining claims in relation to assess ment work. Several monjths ago a law was passed exempting nen in the mili tary service from assessment work I until six mon hs after the close of the | war, and now a new law awaits the i signature of the president which j goes much further and will be ol far- I reaching importance in this state. The following note from Congress- ! I man Hayden to the Post is self ex ! planatory: j “Senate joint resolution No. 7s, j suspending assessment work on met aliferous mining claims for this year and next, has passed both hous- . es. Will mail copy when approved by the president. i (Signed) “Carl Hayden,” i THE SECOND j LIBERTY LOAN OUTLINE OF THE PURPOSES TO BE DERIVED THEREFROM AND AN APPEAL TO ALL TRUE AND AMERICAN CITIZENS. \ / The Liberty Loan is for the pur pose of equipping with arms,clothing and food our gallant soldiers who have been called to the field; main taining our navy and our valiant tars upon the high seas; providing the necessary means to pay the wages of our soldiers and sailors and, if the bill now pending in congress passes, the monthly allowances for the sup port of their dependent families and to supply them with insurance; con structing a great fleet of merchant vessels to maintain the line of com munication with our brave troops in France, and to keep our commerce afloat upon the high seas in defiance of the German kaiser and his sub marines; the creating of a great ileet of aeroplanes, which will give complete supremacy to the United States and the brave nations fighting with us against the German military menace; and for necessary war purposes the congress of the United States has authorized the secretary of the treasury to sell to the American peo ple bonds of ihe United States bear j ing four per ceur interest, with valu- I able tax exemptions,»and convertible i under certain conditions into other issues of United States bonds that j may be authorized by congress. The | official circular of the treasury de | partment gives full details. There is now offered to the Amer ican people a new issue of $3,000,000 of bonds to be known as the Second Liberty Loan. They will be issued in such denominations and upon such terms that every patriotic citi zen will have an opportunity to assist the government by lending his money upon the security of a United States government bond. It is essential to the success of the war and to the support of our gallant troops that these loans shall not only be subscribed, biu over-subscribed. No one is asked to donate or give his money to the government; but every one is asked to lend his money to the government. The loans will be re paid in full with interest at the rate of four per cent per annum. A gov ernment bond is the safest •invest ment in the world; it is as good as currency and yet better, because the government bond bears interest and currency does not. No other, invest ment compares with It for safety, ready convertibility into cash, and unquestioned availability as collater al security for loans in any bank in the United States. Pqpplo by thousands ask the treas ury constantly how they can help the government in this war. Through the purchase of Liberty Bonds every one can help. No more patriotic duty can be performed by those who cannot actually fight upon the field of battle than to furnish the govern ment with the necessary money to enable it to give our brave soldiers and sailors all that they require to make them strong for the fight and capable of winning a swift victory over our enemies. \Ve fight, first of all, for America's vital rights, the right to the unmo lested and unobstructed use of the j high seas, so that the surplus pro | ducts of our farms, our mines and our factories may be carried into the harbors of every friendly' nation in the world. Our welfare and prosper-' ley as a people depend upon our right of peaceful intercourse with all the ; nations of the earth. To abandon these rights by withdrawing our ships and commerce from the seas upon the order of a military despot in Europe w’ould destroy our pros perity and bring disaster and humil iation upon the American people. We fight to protect our people ; against assassination and murder upon the high sous w'hile in the peaceful exercise of those rights de-' raanded by international law r and every instinct and dictate of human ity. j W T e fight to preserve our demo- I cratic institutions and ouf sovereign ity as a nation against the menace of I a powerful and ruthless military I autocracy headed by the German j kaiser, w'hose ambition is to dominate I the world. We fight for the ideal of universal democracy and liberty, the right of I the smallest and weakest nations equally w'ith the most powerful to live and to govern themselves ac cording to the will of their people. We fight for peace, for that just and lasting peace which agonized I and tortured humanity craves and w'hich not the sword nor the bayonet. ) of a military despot but the suprem j acy of vindicated right alone can ! restore to a distracted w r orld. j To secure these ends an appeal is made to every man and woman who resides upon the soil of free America and enjoys the blessings of her price less institutions to Join the League • of Patriots by purchasing a Liberty > Bond BUCK HUNT A FAILURE. With the open season for hunting deer, which commenced Sunday last, 1 B. B. Brown and Julian Gibson were ! prompted to go out and see if they ■ couldn’t get a buck or two, so on Monday, with guns and provisions enough to last tw r o or three days, they started dow r n across the Indian reservation by auto to a place w r here they were told there were lots of deer. The close of the first day found them about thirty miles from home, and while they were preparing to camp for the night they discovered that the lubricating apparatus on I the machine had got out of w r hack somew'here along the road and all their oil had gone to waste, and furthermore, that the auto had run just about as far as it proposed toj without more oil. The hunting j grounds were only a few miles fur | ther on, but it w r as no longer a j question'of getting there but one of | getting back, and the thought of | walking thirty miles gave them a | pain. However, they camped there I that night and the following morn ! ing, after a night of little sleep | and much worriment. they thought of a can of ‘crisco” which they had brought along, intending „to use It !in frying their venison steks, and j indeed it proved a happy thought, for | they tried it on the machine and it answered the purpose very well— what there was of it. They accord ingly got home as quickly as they could and their hunt was necessarily a failure, for they didn’t even get a chance to see a buck—nor anything nearer to it than possibly a “buck” Indian. BANK CASES TO BE TRIED NEXT WEEK. The cases of the State vs. O. M. Spence, R. H. Fuller and F. M. Hall will come up for trial in the superior court at Yuma next week. The charges against the defendants relate to the failure of the Commercial Bank, last June. The following have either been subpoenaed by the sheriff or will be subpoenaed to appear as witnesses in the cases: Mrs. Gladys M. Beck, Mrs. Nellie T. Bush, Mrs. Fred J. Moll, B. M. Fuqua, B. B. Brown, Walter Nel son, Charles Detrick, Lee McGee, Dr. A. H. Littlefield, J. F. Raney and J. B. Flanagan. The latter has been ordered to bring the books and cor respondence of the Commercial Bank, which no doubt will be used as evi dence by both the state and the de fendants. Mrs. J. F. Raney, John Roberts and Frank Ewing were sub poenaed today by Deputy Sheriff De Spain. The witnesses subpoenaed, from here will make the trip by auto, leaving Sunday morning, as they must appear in ocurt on the follow ing day, October 8. I COURT CALENDAR CALLED. Monday forenoon Judge Baxter ! called the court calendar for the com- I ing trial term of the superior court, j which convenes on October Bth. The j first day at nine o’clock the case of •j State vs. Spence and Fuller; the Par- j ker bankers, who are accused of ac- | eepting deposits after the bank was insolvent, will be commenced Dates of other criminal cases were tenta* ; j tively set, but they will needs be ; switched to meet changing condi ! tions.—Yuma Sun. MAKING ICE. The manufacture of ice at the 1 plant of the Parker Improvement company, w'hich has been under sus pension for several months on ac- | count of the worn and defective con dition of the machinery,w r as resumed this w r eek, the plant having been j given a thorough overhauling. With | Joseph Lamoureux in charge and the ; machinery in good running order, the i public may now expect the best of service. EXPULSION OF UFOUEITE FROM THE SENATE IS PROPOSED 9 AS A TEACHER OF DISLOYALTY AND SEDITION,GIVING AID AND COMFORT TO OUR ENEMIES WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.—A com munication from the governor of Minnesota and the state public safety commission requesting the expulsion from the senate of Senator La Foi lette of Wisconsin was presented in the senate today by Senator Kellogg of Minnesota and referred by Vice President Marshall to the seriate privilege ani elections committee. Senator Kellogg received the com munication, which was adopted by the state commission as the result of Senator La Follette’s recent speech at St. Paul. Before presenting it to the senate he conferred with Vice President Marshall, Senator Martin of Virginia, democratic leader, and Senator Pomerene of Ohio, chairman of the committee to which it was re ferred. Any action will first come from the committee. Sentaor La Follette was not in the chamber when the communication was presented and there war. no dis | mission or other action. Four other communications, one from the Washburn Loyalty league of Washburn, Wisconsin, and three from individuals, demanding the impeachment of Senator La Follette were received by Vice President Mar shall and presented to the senate in the usual way. Senator Kellogg explained that he presented the resolution according to the usual practice of all senators of filing communications from respon sible organizations and that there was no other significance in his ac tion. v Characterizing La Follette’s speech in St. Paul on September 20 before the non-partisan league as "disloyal and seditious” the resolution declares the utterances already have served to create treasonable sentiment in Minnesota and petitions the senate to begin proceedings to expel La Fol lette as "a teacher of disloyalty and sedition, giving aid and comfort to our enemies and .hindering the gov ernment in the conduct of the war.” Senator Pomerene indicated that the privileges and elections commit tee would take no action for the present at least. He said he could not decide until after conferring with other members and that a quorum of the committee could not be obfciined probably during the session. MINERS HAVE CLOSE CALL. Thomas Derby and Harry Blsseli. two veteran of the Min eral valley district, had a narrow escape, late last week from perishing of hunger and thirst on the desert, according to a dispatch from Salome They left the latter place in Bis sell’s automobile for a prospecting trip in the Plomosa range to the south, expecting to return in two days. When four days had elapsed without any word from the travelers, fears were aroused some acci dent had befallen them and a party of rescuers set out in L. H. Brook's ; car. Brooks proved himself a re markable trailer, following the path taken by the Bissell car until he found it, more than forty miles from Salome, broken down and with Bis sell in the last stages of exhaustion, unable to speak or to stand and not far from death. Derby had gone on foot for help and had succeeded in reaching Har qua Hala after undergoing the tor tures of desert thirst and hunger for more than thirty-six hours. John B j Martin of the Harqua Hala mine, im ! mediately organized a rescue party, i after seeing that Darby was made comfortable, and was about to set out for the south when the Brooks car arrived, bringing Bissell who had been revived sufficiently to stand the trip.. Both men will recover. LABAR BOARD COMING WEST. WASHINGTON, Oct. I.— President Wilson’s labor investigating’commit tee left today on a two months’ tour j of the western states to inquire into ! causes of labor unrest and attempi j a settlement of strikes and other in dustrial disorders. It will stop first at Phoenix. NO. 21.
