Berlin Medical Circles Stirred by
American's Proposal to Pay for
Secret Dr. Friedmann's Ac
tions Give Klse to Criticism.
BERUX. Feb. 2. (Special.) The of
fer of Charles Finlay, president of the
Aetna National Bank of New York, of
$1,000,000 for Dr. Frederick F. Fried
mann's tuberculosis serum, has caused
a stir in medical circles here. Last
week Dr. Friedmann said he would give
the Government his discovery on a cer
tain day. but a week has gone by and
he has not done ko.
He said, a week aso. he bad cabled
a New York paper he would sail on
the Mauretanla on February 1. He
notified Mr. Thackara, the American
Consul-General, personally of his sail
ing at that time.
fater in the week Dr. Friedmann ap
peared undecided as to when lie would
sail for New York. He said he was ne
gotiating with the government, and
this might delay his departure.
Friends Are Mystified.
Dr. Friedmann's friends say they
cannot understand his actions and his
premature announcement. They can
hilly attribute them to the fact that
he Is chiefly a laboratory man, has lit
tle knowledge of dealing with people,
and is not a practical business man. No
one knows where his laboratory is.
Dr. Friedmann, who is the head of a
Berlin medical institute, leaped Into
fame recently by announcing he had dis
covered the long-sought cure for tuber
culosis. There was an instant demand
from all over the world for informa
tion about it. Medical institutes every
where sent for cultures, sufferers from
tuberculosis began to flock here in the
hope of being cured by the doctor. Then
Dr. Friedmann made his demand for
Jl. 000.000, and at once a storm of criti
cism arose from the medical profession,
on the basis that Dr. Friedmann's de
mand was unethical to try to make
money out of a discovery of such value
to the whole world.
Dr. Fried mann. Ketlrent.
Dr. Friedmann had been extremely
reticent about what he would do until
the offer of Charles Finlay arrived
here, anil, since the terms of the offer
have been made public, his friends arc
at a loss to account or his continued
Certain skeptics declare that Dr.
Friedmann's hesitancy about going to
America to claim the $1,000,000 is due
to the terms of Mr. Finlay's offer, which
insists that it be proven that the cure
is a real one. According to the terms of
the cabled offer Mr. Finlay says it will
be necessary to secure patients who are
undoubtedly suffering from tuberculosis
and to attempt their cure. When they
ire cured it will be necessary to prove
also that there are no harmful after ef
fects of the cure. When this is done ne
says he will pay Dr. Friedmann the
$1,000,000 he demands.
LOWER FARE IS ORDERED
Southern Pacific In Nevada Must
Come Down to Three Cents.
RENO, Ncv.. Feb. 2. (Special.) Or
ders have been issued by the Nevada
Railroad Commission to the Southern
Pacific Railroad Company to reduce
passenger fares in the state over both
the main line and branches from 4 and
6 cents a mile to 3 cents a mile, to go
Into effect February 25.
This order has come after two years
of investigation by the Railroad Com
mission under the supervision of Com
missioner Shaughnessy, who makes a
statement that the railroad company
will make a reasonable profit on its
investment at the rate ordered.
Commissioner Bartine, in a dissent
ing opinion, says that, while he be
lieves the S-cent rate is right as far
as the main lines of the railroad com
pany are concerned, he does not be
lieve the branch lines should be com
pelled to lower their rates, as their
earnings are not sufficient to warrant
the reduction. At the same time Com
missioner Bartine acknowledges that
the sum total of the business of the
company, including both main and
branch lines, will merit the reduction.

OCEAN POOL MAKES WAR
Canadian Pacific's Mediterranean
Service Object of Attack.
VIENNA. Feb. 2. The trans-Atlantic
steamship pool has declared war on
the Mediterranean service of the Cana
dian Pacific Railway. Having failed
at the recent conference in Berlin to
secure the adhesion of the Canadian
company for the pool, the Cnnard line
now has applied to the Austrian gov
ernment for a concession for a steam
ship service between Trieste, Austria,
and Portland, Me., with the privilege
of establishing branch emigration offi

A concession of this character al

WASHINGTON. Feb. 2. The framing
of the tentative basis of the entire
tariff legislation In the coming extra
session of Congress will begin tomor
row in the House committee on ways
and means The 14 Democrats of the
committee, constituting its majority,
will meet In executive session daily
from now .until they have revised all
of the 14 schedules of the present law,

Revenue Must Be Raised.
The committee Is confronted with the
problem of raising from $325,000,000 to
$350,000,000 from customs duties and
still fulfilling a pledge to lower the
tariff on necessities. The plan is to
provide between $85,000,000 and $100,
000.000 by an Income tax, favorable
action of only one more state being
necessary to ratify the proposed Con
The income tax would embrace the
corporation tax, which bids fair to
yield $30,000,000 revenue this year. In
the main, according to Democrats, the
chemical. Iron and steel, wool, cotton
and free list bills will be like the pre
vious Democratic bills, but there will
be numerous changes dic.tated by new
light thrown on individual articles.
Free Sugar Reduces Revenue.
The Democratic majority Is strongly
committed to an income tax and its
partial offset, the free sugar plan. It
Is estimated that free sugar would de
plete the revenues by $53,000,000 and
that the free list would cut out ap
proximately $17,000,000 more. There
will be reductions in the cotton, wool
and other schedules that may cause a
material loss, though in some of the
cases the Democrats count upon In
creased Importations to offset the cut
in duties. ,

WASHINGTON. Feb. 2. The whole
question of Federal control of water

that conservation forces are lining up
behind It and will endeavor to force
its passage through the Senate.

In addition to the four new divisions
which are established in continental

The announcement says:
"At the outbreak of any war, or up
on any emergency requiring the use of
a brigade or a division of regular troops
it only will be necessary to issue a sin

of the division or brigade in question,
directing him to mobilize his force at
the desired point."
The new plan will not Involve the
immediate movement of a large num

studying the problems, and orders for
such transfers as are necessary will be
issued later. The assignment of staff
officers to the several commands or
ganized under the new plan will be an

Secretary Stlmson believes that the
plan of reorganization Is as thoroughly
in accord with the views of the Army
as it ill possible for any such plan to be.

Thus the Ottomans, with the excep
tion of the Montenegrins, the only del

that nobody could accuse them of not
having done all humanly possible to
come to terms. Animated by a humani
tarian spirit, they added, Turkey wished
to avoid useless carnage and wished
also to show defereuce to the advice
of the powers, although Europe had
been unfair toward Turkey.
Dr. Daneff, head of the Bulgarian
delegation, before leaving London re
called what he said in bis first state
ments on arriving in London, that the
Balkan peoples, who had adapted the
Monroe doctrine to their peninsula, as
pired to become the Americans of Eu
rope. They had inaugurated a policy
of sincerity and straightforwardness,
as was proved by their frank conduct
in the peace conference, where they
demanded from the first exactly what
they Intended to take.
Osman Nizami Pasha, of the Turkish
delegation, ridiculed the assertion that
the allies would be able to storm
Adrianople in a few days.
The plan to take Adrianople by star

the Turkish commandant having proved
his ability to furnish supplies indefi

How Not A Pimple To Be Seen.
Philadelphia, Pa., Oct. 27, 1912. "I had
been troubled for the past three years
with pimples which completely covered
my face and neck. The pimples would
come out, fester up and cause me to
pick at them, feeling very uncomfort
able. I tried most all kinds of facial
creams, but with no effect. I tried a
sample of Reslnol Soap and Ointment
and noticed instant relief. I bought
Reslnol Soap and Reslnol Ointment, and
began the treatment. After using two
Jars of Reslnol Ointment and Reslnol
Soap, there was not a pimple to be
seen, and now my face is as smooth as
if there was never a pimple on it."
