Says Statements of Distinguished
Physicians Are Attack
' Ob Christianity.
MAKES VIGOROUS CHALLENGE
Says Fifty Years Hence All Of
Osiers Teachings May Be
Overthrown.
Baltimore, April 20. "I am no enemy
of the saints. I will talk to my friend
the Cardinal about this as soon as I
get back."
This was all Sir William Osier had
time to say in reference to the state
ment that Cradinal Gibbons regard?
parts of Sir William's address on Chris
tianity. Sir William made it clear that
he regretted the exception taken by the
Cardinal to his remarks and that he
intends to see the Cardinal about it.
The statement accredited to Dr. Os
ler was that man has not adjusted
himself to new conditions; that he
stands only half awake.
"Still in the thaumaturgic state of
our mental development," he said, "99
per' cent of our fellow creatures when
in trouble, sorrow or sickness, trust
to charms, incantation, and to the
saints. Many a shrine has more fol
lowers than Pasteur, many a saint
more believers than -Lister. Less than
twenty years have passed since the
last witch was burned in the British
Isles."
Cardinal Gibbons said he was shocked
at Dr. Osier's statement. "I find that
scientists in any line sometimes make
statements such as that of Dr. Osier,"
said the Cardinal, "and only a short
time ago I. had to defend some truths
that Thomas A. Edison attacked. The
great trouble with these scientific spe
cialists is that they cannot imagine
how any one can disagree with them
They think their statements should go
unchallenged, but this one of Dr. Osier
shall not, and I shall-write to him
asking him to retract it." ,
"I would like to call the atcntion of
Dr. Osier to the fact that Pasteur wa3
a devout Catholic and put his trust in
the saints. He said that as his knowl
edge of medicine increased his faith
grew likewise. He was proud of the
fact that he was a member of the
Catholic church and I am sure he wor
shipped at many shrines.
"What do the things that Dr. Osier
preaches stand for, anyhow? Fifty
years hence all his teachings may be
overthrown by new discoveri ;s. His
whole doctrine is based on theory.
'"The stat.ments attibutcd to Dr.
Osier are an attack on Christianity.
am exceedingly surprised that he should
make such an attack in this age. Thi
Catholic church is not founded on the
ory, and whereas the whole world is
informed of its doctrine, the conclu
sions of Dr. Osier are known to com
parativcly few."

E
Prominent Anti-Suffragist
Dis
cusses The Growing Lax
ity of Morals.
LEADER IN SOCIETY HERSELF
Contends That Influence of Well
To-Do-Women Seaps Down
To Less Prominent Ones.
Washington, April 23. j quite
agree that society women are to blame,'
was the comment made here by Mrs
Arthur M. Dodge, of New York, her
.-elf a .ociety women, and president oi
the Anti Suffrage National association
in discussing the arraignment of "high
society" by a club of Washington men.
Some of the speakers of the club
meeting expressed consternation at
the spread of the social evil, and the
general laxity of morals throughout
the country.
'Society women, are to bjamc,"..de
clarcd Mrs. Dodge, "because the in
fiuence and the example of ociety
slops down to the les prominent girls
and women who make up every com
munity. These girls and won.cn copy
so-called high society in dress and in
dancing. Nothing has happened in
the history of this country or of the
world to lower morals and moral
standards mot.' than the dressing and
the dancing of the present day.
"A remarkable thing is that on one
side societies for sex hygiene and the
uplift of morals arc increasing rap
idly, and on the other hand there is
an increasing laxity of morals. Many
people who ought to help towards
public opinion show their neglect in
doing so in thur general dress and
conduct.
"It all comer, back to flie proposi'
tion that, instead of working for the
bal'ot, women should sec that the
laws now on the statue books are
carried out. The woman of today
must feel more keenly then she docs
now her responsiblity to her child
ren and to other people's children
With the women of the piescnt time
there is something wrong, and that
which is wrong is hard to trace defi
nitely. It seems to be a combination
of the effect of European feminism,
which has crept over there under a
different name and ha neglected th.
development of the individual by re
suiting in the sacrifice of the home.
"It is a self-evident fact that moth
ers havo iosj tluir sense of respon
sibility to their children, and that
children have lost the respect and
obedience due to their parents. It is
all well enough to talk of reform, but
the reform for which there is a cry
ing need at this time should begin
a home.
"If all the ..women would discharge
this high duty there would be neith
Sf time or any pretense or necessity
for women t) clamor for the ballot
rather than the womanly virtues, can
bring about an improved condition of
affairs."

Road Supervisor Believes In Let
ting Public Know What Is
Being Done.
WRITES TO NEWS & OBSERVER
Says The Citizens Are Unani
mously In Favor Of Im
proving the Highways.
Craven county is gaining an enviable
reputation as a builder of good roads
and the attention of the entire State
is being turned in this direction. R.
F-. Snowden who was recently secured
by the Board of Commissioners to
supervise the building of roads in this
county, is a man of action'and believes
not only in doing things but also in
letting the outside world know that
these things are being done.
Writing to the Raleigh News and
Observer of the work being done here
he says:
"During the past two years Craven
county has abolished the "warming
out" system and levied a fifteen cent
property tax to maintain and rebuild
all roads in the county, including six
ty miles of the Central highway.
"The board of commissioners have
direct charge of all roads and have
engaged an experienced civil and high
way engineer to take charge of both
maintenance and construction. The
system, using the township as the unit
or section and employing free labor
only.
"The construction is done with the
convicts of this and adjoining coun
ties and the city of New Bern. All
roads ate to be rebuilt to a width of
twenty-four to thirty- feet in the clear.
The population, bo'.h rural and urban,
arc unanirru ly in fav r of building
a first-class system of highways through
out the county.
"The funds ayailablc this year
amount to $18,000 and we will prob
ably have $28,000 next year for road
purposes. There is no bond issuj.
"The county expects to follow the
present plan until the road's of the
county have been rebuilt. Than a
small levy will suffice ior mainte
nance." The convict force is now engaged in
building and improving the road leading
from this city to Vanceboro and when
this work is completed they will be
transferred to the road between this
city and Morchead City and will spend
some time in improving this.

T
CROP WILL BE SHORT AS
RESULT BEANS ALSO
DAMAGED.
Thj frost of Tuesday morning did
serious damage to I ish potatoes in
his section. Reports from Pamlico
county are that the crop will be ser
iously cut off as a result of the unsea
sonable weather. The fields look
brown and parched. In the immediate
vicinity of Oriental the damage is
less,' the close proximity to a large
body of water having operated to the
advantage of the crop.
In this vicinity, the potatoes look
decidcedly "sick" and a' I over Eastern
Carolina the damage is understood
to be quite considerable. As th.
"snap" was very general it ib believed
that the crop will be short all around
and that this will result in higher prices
o thai the proceeds from the crop
may be a. large at they would have
been had not the Irost occurred.
A letter received by a local cit zen
fiom a gentleman in Nor.olk stated
that both beans and potatoes in thai
section were damaged, the b.-ans being
killed outright in some instances.

UESDAY'S FROST
HURTS POTATOES
NO FIELD LEFT FOR ROGERS
PARTY DEMOCRATS PRO
GRESSIVE ENOUGH.
Washington, D. C, April 21 So
completely hasth" Democratic adminis
tration handled the governmental reins
since Woodrow Wilson went into the
White House, according to what con
gressional leaders said here today in
discussing the future of the tariff bill,
that there is no. a look in for the Pro
gressives anywhere on the po'itical
horizon, and it must be remembered
that it was these same Progressives
tnat tne ucmocrats most icareu at me
polls last fall.
The tariff bill has run the gaunt
let of the Democratic caucus, and in
stead of coming out of a shapeless wreck;
it will emerge tomorrow practically
in the same condition as it went in.
Changes have been so few and of such
Utile consequence as to lead the Pro
gressives to believe that they are per
manently out of the running. They
had hoped thai the caucus would mud
dle itself so badly that the tariff bill
would have to be sent to the legisla
tive repair shop for alterations, to the
benefit of the Progressives aforemen
tioned; nothing of the kind happened.
The master hands of Oscar Underwood
and Woodrow Wilson at the wheel
steered thj craft into safe waters. The
gauntlet has been run, and the. dan
gerous shoals passed. Whatever ob
jection the tariff bill would encounter,
so far as the House is concerned ,has
been met safely and passed. It was
there that trouble was to b expect
ed, if any where ,and the absolute eas.
with which Congressman Underwood
and President Wilson have cleared the
narrow passage has not only proved
them adept legislative skippers, but
they have convincingly shown also to
the Progressives that there is not a
chance for the latter, Wilson has
furnished all the progressiveness that
the Progressives wanted and he has
made a complete success of it.
In the Senate the little objection
that was formally shown to the pres
ent tariff bill has dwindled to a neg
ligible quantity, and the Democratic
majority in the upper house undoubt
edly will make as perfect a job oi ta
riff mending before it is done with.
It was also pointed out here today
that with th" prospects all the best
lor complete harmony between Bryan
and Clark, the only discordant note
of the Baltimore convention passing
into history during the last day or
two, and with Bryan in entire accord
with President Wilson in every act
and deed, there is, in rea'ity, not a
chance for. the Progressives, even with
the wonderful Roosevelt as their lead
er. The truth aboft it i that Wood
row Wilton, Oscar Underwood, the
members of the Cabinet, and the men
upon wohm the President is leaning
for advice, arc proving themselves too
strong a proposition for all the boasted
power of the Progressive movement.
PARCEL POST
CONGRESSMAN LEWIS WANTS
LOWER RATES AND LARGER
CLASSIFICATION.
Washington, Apr'l 23. Congressman
David J. Lewis of Maryland, father
of the pa eel post, announces that he
will open the fight in Congress within
the next two weeks for a reduct'on in
parcel post ra:es, for a higher weight
limit and for enlargement o' its class
ification so as to include books.
Mr. Lewis has been studying the
operation of the parcel post system since
its establishment by the Postoffice De
partment. For the past month he
has ben at work on a speech which he
will deliver in the Hou-e advocating
changes in the parcel post act so that
it can be developed into an agency
for a reduction of the high cost of liv
ng. This speech will be delivered
during the tariff debate.
Mr. Lewis, discussing the operation
of the parcel post with a correspondent
said his observation is : hat thegreatcst
defect 111 ihc kystcm is the high rate
for local packages. He declared the
pare.1' post can never bo made a trans
portation eojtdtHt between the suburban
or rural pfofTucer and the city cOrsum ;r
until rates arc establ'shed which will
invite this trade.
He thinks that this local rati should
not be more than, 1 cen. a pound, and
that if such a rate is made and packing
regulations are mod tied there is no
reason why the farmers within a radius
of 100 miles ol a big city cannot ship
their Droduce direct to- the city con
sum jr. -
If this is. done, Mr. Lewis feels, the
question of the high cost of living will
be solved.

BUT FEW DISSENTING VOTES
Senators and Representatives En
joy Special Privileges In
Their Speeches.
Washington, April 22 The House of
Representatives has taken formal steps
to investigate the assault upon Con
gressman T. W. Sims, of Tennessee,
by C. C. Glover, the millionaire presi
dent of the Riggs National Bank, of
Washington, and to determine whether
or not Mr. Glover invaded the rights
and privileges ol members of the House
when he slapped the Tennessee Repre
sentative in the face to resent the
latter's criticism of him on the floor
of Congress in connection with certain
real estate deals.
Five members of the House were
appointed a committee by Speaker
Clark to nake. the investigation, fol
lowing the adoption of a resolution of
the highest privilege presented byt
Representative Garretc, of Tennessee.
The committee is directed by the
resolution to report to the House next
Saturday. Among the witnesses will
be Representative Sims, the man as
saulted; J. Fred Essary, Washington
correspondent of The Sun, of Baltimore
and C. P. Daily, of the Washington
Herald, newspaper men to whom Mr.
Glover gave a statement of the assault.
The action by the House followed a
long conference yesterday between
Speaker Clark and several House lead
crs. Because of the unusual and serious
nature of the affair it was. agreed to
hav; a select committee named to re
commend to the House a course of
procedure. The Speaker named be
sides Mr. ' Covingfon Representatives
John W. Davis, of West Virginia;
Charles F. Crisp of Georgia; Pourty
of Iowa, and Nelson of Wisconsin.
All stand high in the House as lawyers.
The Garrett resolution was adopted
with only a few dissenting voices.
The Constitution provides that for
any speech or debate in either house
Senators Or Representatives shall not
be questioned in any other place.
As an incident to the maintenance
of its integrity the House ol Repre
sentatives has on several occasions
asserted its inherent right to punish
for contempt. In 1832 Samuel Houston
attacked Representative Stanberry, of
Ohio, on the streets of Washington,
for words spoken by Stanberry in
debate in the House. Houston was
arrested on a warrant issued by the
Speaker, arranged at the bar of the
House, and after a hearing was publicly
punished by censure of the Speaker de
livered under order of the House.
The Supreme Court has on two, occa
sions decided tha under proper circum
stances the House of Representatives
has the power to punish for contempt.
Members of Congress who discussed
the matter today regarded the questions
raised as very serious ones. The ln
cgrity of the House is involved, they
said. On the other hand, the assault
on Mr. Sims by Mr. Glover was for
words spoken in a former Congress.
The case will probably reach the Su
preme Court through habeas corpus
proceedings if the House orders the
arrest of the millionaire assailant of
the Tennessee member.

MAYOR SAYS.
i
Boston, April 22. "Society dances
clipse in boldness anything attempted
in public halls and are mainly responsi-
ore ior the abuses developed in dance
ha'ls, said Mayor John r. Fitzgerald.
The Mayor's statement was made in
connection with an announcement that
unless danc.e hall conditions in Boston
are improved he will close up "the most
offensive place." and might be com-
pelled to adopt a uniform hour io

A committee of the Public Franch.se
League which called upon the Mayor
to ask for stricter municipal regulation

of dancing, had expressed surprise that
the Mayor should include hotel ball-
rooms with the cheaper dance halls.
"inynntiH,r9nvmn,iHmtinn
exempt the hotels from conforming to
the midnight closing hour," continued
the Mayor. "As far as my observation
goes, they arc the worst offenders and
they could well set the rest of the city
a good example. At very few of the
debuatante parties and fashionable
social events in the Bay does the
dancing begin until nearly midnight,
and it runs until the early hours of
