Conference Will Be Held Third
Week of the Present
PURPOSES OF GATHERING
It Is a Deliberative, Xot an Execu-J

Individualism in the
Among the many notable gatherings
to be held in Portland this Summer
none is likely to attract more atten
tion than the Charities Conference,
which will be held in the third week
of tjils month. The attendance will
be large and brilliant. This conference
has always drawn crowds, and the fact
that it has not met on the Pacific Coast
since 1SS9, when San Francisco wel
comed It, will be an added inducement
for its members.
Probably there will be about 1000
here in conectlon with the meetings.
The high-water mark of attendance
passed Into four figures at Washington
two years ago. and last year's gather
ing at Portland. Me., found nearly as
many registered. It is the hope that
the session of 1905 will go down in the
annals of the great organization as the
best In its history, not only in the num
ber present, but in the Interest awak
ened and the quality of the papers and
A Deliberate Body.
The National Conference of Charities
and Corrections Is a novel institution.
Jt Is a deliberative, not an executive,
body. Composed for the most part of
men and women whoso dally lives are
given to carrying into practice the
principles which it discusses, It makes
no rules for their guidance and draws
no inference from tnelr experiences.
Xo resolutions are passed at its meet
ings favoring or condemning any sys
tems of charitable work, and every par
ticipant in its sessions is left unbound
nt their close, free to do as he pleases
with the Information he has gathcre1.
"What its speakers have learned in the
years that are past they tell to others,
and a free and easy comment exposes
fallacies or adds valuable data to the
contributions. To quote the preamble
to the few rules of procedure that form
the constitution, the conference "exists
to discuss the problems of charities and
corrections, to desslmlnate information
and promote reform. It does not for
Doing a Vast Work.
Negative to activity as Its constitu
tion is. however, the conference has
done and is doing a vast work. Orig
inally. It was part of the Social Science
Association, from which it separated
when its field of discussion had widened
fo much that the need of an independ
ent organization was evident. The con
ference celebrates its thirty-first
birthday this year, and In its lifetime
has witnessed many changes in the
methods of charitable and correctional
Many of these changes have been
the direct outgrowth of its delibera
tions, and a little study of Its history
would show the reason why its older
members are its optimists. For the
newcomers to Its ranks are zealous.
They see the misery all about them and
ache to euro it out of hand. But the
veterans look back over a third of a
century and remember that all the evils
of today were pressing when the con
ference was born, and many more.
Some of the things they discussed 30
years ago have disappeared. Others
arc being reduced to the vanishing
point, and will be gone Jn good time,
when the world is reacly. Evolution
is the theme of the old fighters. They
believe in it. and have no more potent
argument to restrain their eager col
leagues who aro in haste to bring on
Individualism Its Effort.
Out of the apparent diversity of
aims seen at a meeting of the confer
ence, a unanimity soon appears. These
men and women, famous many of them,
energetic workers all. have a clear con
ception of the matters they aro dis
cussing. One of the clergymen who
preached a remarkable sermon before
nn annual session some years ago,
summed up the aim of this body when
he said that it desired to "secure a full
individualism for the social system."
That was before the expression of
I'resldent Roosevelt's motto of the
square deal, but its meaning Is the
isame. To give every man a chance and
to fit him to make the most of his
chance. Is the end in view atthese
The good of society as a whole is
the scheme of all the discussions. The
undesirable elements of mankind are
classified and studied with a view to
their betterment or elimination. One
classification, arranged by a former
Fecretary of the conference, shows
clearly the scope of subjects that come
before the meetings. First, the delin
quents, including the adult criminal,

study of tho conference. To go deeper

The president of the conference this
year is a Western man. Rev. Samuel G

Toward Carrying Out the Plans

Appointment of Marcus Talbot, as
manager for the Columbia River &

is believed to be the first step toward
carrying out the plans of the Hill in
terests heretofore so successfully con
cealed while In the atage of preparation.
There Is .strong reason to believe that
the Goldendale road, with its independent
organization, may be used as the means
of accomplishing for the Northern Paci
fic the objective toward which have been
directed the genius of executive officers
and counsellors building a water grade
line down the north bank of the Colum
bia. Physical difficulties of constructing
such a route are slight, although some
portions of the line would necessarily
entail expensive rock work, but the most
protracted difficulties will probably be
the opposition to. be offered by the Harrl
man interests, the great competing trans

Engineers of tho O. R. &. N. are at

that the Instructions to those engineers
were to complete surveys for clearing a
right of way 1(0 feet In width from the
water's edge, which would prevent th
Northern Pacific or anv other eomnnn
securing trackage through the gorge
for a time at least. This Is taken by
railroad men familiar with the situation
as Indicative of the progress made In
plans that the opposition system feels
must now be blocked by decisive steps.

and Thousands of Physicians
Throughout Country Benefit
by Its Accomplishments.
"The American Medical Association is a
post-graduate college at which men of
National attainment gather annually to
exchange Ideas and to discuss the results
and findings of their year's work and in
vestigations. It has no politics and many
of the members will return to their homes
after the sessions without knowing who
has been elected the president of the as
sociation. Its object Is to promote the
science and art of medicine, to unite In
one compact organization the medical pro
fession of the United States and to ele
vate Its standards."
Dr. L. S. McMurtry. of Louisville. Ky..
president of the American Medical Asso
ciation and therefore the dean of this
great National post-graduate college of
eminent physicians and surgeons, sat last
night In his room at the Portland Hotel
and told of thc alms and objects of the

was founded In 1S46 and I3 thc largest
medical association In the world. Last
year It met at Atlantic City and the year
before that at New Orleans. Since Its
membership is made up from the pro
gressive medical men throughout the
United States the meeting places are
chosen is different sections of thc country
In order to give the members In each dis
trict an opportunity to attend while at
the same time the members are given the
privilege of visiting the different sections
of the country.
"The object of the association is to
promote the science and art of medicine,
to unite the medical profession Into one
compact organization and to elevate the
standards of the profession. It Is an as
sociation to the sessions of which the
medical men of the Nation may come and
learn of the advance made In the year
through the researches and Investigations
of the men who have attained high place
In the ranks of the profession, men or
National and oftentimes of worldwide
Its Scientific Work.
"Its scientific work Is carried on in
12 sections representing the various spe
cialties and departments of procedure.
In these different sections the men en
gaged In scientific research present the
results of their Investigations by writ
ten essays or papers which are discussed
by those attending the congress.
"The medical profession is the most
progressive of all for the reason that
medicine Is not yet ranked among the
exact sciences. At these meetings the
methods of treatment and operation and
of procedure are discussed and presented
to men engaged In the same lines of in
vestigation and practice.
"The association embraces In its mem
bership all of the progressive element
of the profession In the United States
and Is In effect a great post-graduate
college In which the men of attainment
In the profession meet to exchange Ideas
Diffusion of Hcscarch.
"For the diffusion of Its researches the
association publishes a weekly journal
which hns come to be the foremost medi
cal publication of the world. The asso
ciation owns valuable property In Chi
cago where the Journal Is published, to
gether with other medical publications.
The Journal has a weekly circulation or
35.000 copies, tho subscriptions being dis
tributed throughout the United States."
Turning from history Dr. McMurtry
chatted pleasantly of the work done by
the association and of the difference be
tween the physician of the pioneer days
and of the present time. The associa
tion, the speaker held, was responsible
In large part for the advancement made
by the medical profession of the Union.. It
kept alive and fostered the spirit of prog
ress more than any one agency, as It
brought every man of progressive ideas
close In touch and hnrmony with his
Old Methods Gone.
The old-time of the man who studied
a few short months In some office and
then went forth to cure all Ills had
passed and In its place had come the
specialist, the man highly trained to do
some certain branch well, the man who
knew his subject as thproughly as it
might be given In the power of man to
understand. Thus It was that the asso
ciation had done and would continue to
do much excellent work for the advance
ment of the profession. The association
was a college from which none could
ever graduate for It would ever hold
new things to be learned ami taught,
new Investigations and discoveries to be
made, new results to be achieved.

, If we were to assemble all
those who have been cured of
heart disease by Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure, and who would
to-day be in their graves had
not Dr. Miles' been successhL
in perfecting' this wonderful
heart specific, they would pop
ulate a large city.
What a remarkable record
a breathing, thinking, moving
monument, composed of human
lives, that for which every
other earthly possession is sac
rificed. The Miles Medical Co. re
ceive thousands of letters from
these people like the following:
"I feel indebted to tho Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure for my life. I desire to call
the attention of others suffering as I
did to this remarkable remedy for the
heart. For a long" time I had suffered
from shortness of breath after any
little exertion, palpitation of the heart;
and at times terrible pain In tho region
of the heart, so serious that I feared
that I would some time drop dead upon
the street. One day I read one of your
circulars, and Immediately went to
my druggist and purchased two bot
tles of the Heart Cure, and took It
according to directions, with tho
result that I am entirely cured. Sine
then I never miss an opportunity to
recommend this remedy to my friends
who have heart trouble; In fact I am
a traveling advertlsment. for I ara
widely known In this locality."
