HIS WHOLE PARTY ABSENT
Vote of Censure on His Fiscal Policy
Carried Without a Dissenting
Vote-Speeches Mads to
LONDON, March 2S. In the House of
Commons tonight a vote of censure of
Premier Balfour's fiscal policy was unan
imously carried Ministerialists abstaining
The session was a repetition of the ses
sion of March 22, when a resolution In
troduced by Mr. Alnsworth (Free Trade
liberal), condemning the government's
proposition to Impose a general duty on
manufactured goods, was -carried by a
vote of 254 to 2. The Ministerial front
benches tonight were entirely deserted,
and only about a dozen Unionists, princi
pally free traders, were present, when
Mr- Walton (Liberal), moved a resolu
tion as follows:
"In view of the declaration made by
the Prima Minister, this Souse thinks It
necessary to record its condemnation ox
his DOlicr of fiscal retaliation."
The opposition had hoped that, in view
of the fact that this was a vote or cen
sure, the government would take up the
challenge, and would not adhere to Its
declared Intention of ignoring finance res
olutions of private members; but Mr. Bal
four declined to be drawn out, and the
opposition was drlxen to address denun
ciatory speeches to empty benches and
reap the indirect -benefit of the effect of
the government's refusal to fight when
Mr. "Walton's motion was carried with
out a division. In reply to an inquiry by
Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman, the
speaker said the motion had been record
ed as carried, nem con.
At a Cabinet meeting held March 21 it
was decided that In future the govern
ment would not use pressure upon Its
followers la regard to the opposition's
resolutions framed to commit the govern
ment on the finance Question. The fol
lowers of Joseph Chamberlain took sim
ilar action, and decided not to take part
in debates or divisions on resolutions
touching the tariff or fiscal question. The
action of the government was equivalent
to a declaration that the fiscal question
is not a critical party issue.
POPE LEO BLESSES BASILICA

ROME, March 28. Above the grotto

MILITARY POLICY OF BRITAIN
Army Needed to Defend Frontiers,
Not Compete With Military Powers.
LONDON, March 28. In the House of
Commons today Secretary of War Arnold
Forster. on a motion in committee on the
army estimates, made his annual state
ment. He defended the policy the War
Office and said the record for his admin
istration showed that a number of changes
had been made looking to placing the
army on an efficient footing. The regular
army could not be reduced because Great
Britain was the only country in the world
which was obliged to maintain an army
on a war footing in times of peace. The
danger of an invasion was not real.
The, principal duty of the British army
was to fight across seas and defend
frontiers. They must eliminate the Idea
of competition with great military "coun
tries of the world and should merely
apply their whole attention to supplying
an army capable of defending the fron
tiers. The lesson of the Russo-Japanese
"War was that quality and not quantity
produced success in modern warfare.
Mr. Arnold-Forster outlined the changes
made and contemplated, and said it gave,
him great pleasure to be able to say
that the Dominion of Canada had under
taken from a certain date to bear the
cost of guardianship of the great imperial
fortresses situated In that country. He
added that it would take seven years
to make an impression on the great prob
lems of army reorganisation. "What then
could be expected in seven months? He
urged the House to deal with the ques
tion from a patriotic ana not from

To escape this expensive construc

traffic which would bo developed In
that sactlon is one of the most alluring
factors of the situation and its logical

sion of the Columbia Southern, the
haul over the latter road and the O.

hundred miles longer than by a spur
leading "north from Bend to the pro
posed east and west road.
It 1s the opinion of nearly all Port-
landers who have visited the field that
either the agricultural resources or
the timber resources would be suffi
cient to warrant the construction ot
the road, and to a large number of the
dwellers In the central and southern
part of the state it is a matter of in
difference whether it is an east and,
west or a north and south road that
enters the country. The peculiar ad
vantage of the timber traffic out of
that country lies In the fact that It
would In no way Inerfere with the de
mand for lumber from east or west of
the Cascade Mountains, as the white
and yellow pine of the Deschutes re
gion fills a demand separate and apart
from the fir. spruce and hemlock east

ere ace to poisons used in proprietary med
icines. It is true that some medicines
contain poisons in small percentages-, but
tne use is not nearly as general as- In
physicians" prescriptions. A great many
drugs which are recognised by every phy
sician as helpful In small doses are pois
onous when taken In excess.
An elderly druggist told me a few days
ago that he bad personally examined more
than 100.000 physicians prescriptions!, and,
by actual count, 0 per cent of them con

a trace of opiate in the largest sellers
among the proprietary remedies.
Strychnine Is another dangerous drug
largely prescribed by physicians. It Is
used as a tonic and stimulant. Tet this
is a drug- rarely found in proprietaries.
The maker of a proprietary medicine
must be more careful about the use of
any poison than the physician. The phy
sician is In a position to direct his doses
and to watch, the results. He is able to
take chances which no maker of a gen

There are thousands of physicians whose

It is the lack of poison, rather than
its presence, which forms the real objec
tion to proprietaries. It is by using a
poison which the medicine maker avoids
that the physician often secures a greater
effect. The maker of a remedy has too
much at stake to use anything which
will result In occasional harm. And this
caution leads him often to omit Ingredi
ents which he knows to be valuable.
Proprietary remedies are used not alone
by the poor who cannot afford to call a
physician. They are employed by those
to whom expense is of no .importance.
And in ordinary ailments, when a physi
cian is called, he prescribes a ready-made
remedy. Proprietary remedies are at some
time taken by all of us. They are found
In nearly every home.
And I know of no business where fraud
has less chance of success than in medi

found out. A sick -person will not long
continue a remedy which does not help.
The lack of merit in a food may remain
long undiscovered, but if a medicine lacks
virtue the fact is at once apparent.
When I need a remedy for any ordinary
ailment, my choice gees to a remedy so
good that it made its maker rich.

marriage with Colonel Frod H. Parkhurst,

being a Protestant. The marriage Is con

that their owners control a monopoly.

not those which make remedies advertised

The custom with those who Invent such
remedies today is to patent them and con
trol them. Just as docs the man who In
vents a new machine. And the medical
profession recognise and approve the
method, for every modern physician pre
scribes patented remedies more frequently
than any others. And enormous enter
prises are built solely on this fact.
The mere fact, therefore, that a man
controls a remedy, cither by a patent

It. It is rather evidence that the man
has something which-he considers worth
If the man. in addition, spend? large
sums In advertising, whether to. physicians
or to the laity, it forms to me further
evidence of value. Nothing is more cer
tain than the fact that a worthless article
cannot bo advertised profitably.
Those who know advertising know that
the cost of selling a bottle or package to
new user Is several times the profit
made on It. The only hope of profit comes
through continued use; and, without
merit, continued use cannot be expected.

Tben there Is the question of alcohol
which Mr. Bok seems to consider such a
perilous one. All the fluid extracts and
tinctures used In medicine must employ
alcohol as a solvent and preservative. !
Prohibit a physician from using alcohol
in his prescriptions and you would make
the practice of medicine impossible. If a
physician must use alcohol In certain pre
scriptions, shall we complain that a ready

The use of alcohol In medicine Is ap
proved by the pharmacopoeias of all na

The abuse of alcohol Is another mat

vent abuse. Alcohol costs about C60 per
gallon. It Is too expensive for any medi
cine maker to use more than he needs of
it. And he cannot hope that people are
going to take the medicine because of the
alcohol, when good whisky can be pur
chased for one-fifth as much.
A dose ot medicine which contains even
SO per cent of alcohol does not seem to me
a very dangerous matter. That means
one-fifth of a teaspoonful of alcohol at a
