WASHINGTON, March 23. President
Roosevelt presented diplomas today to
the class graduated from the United
States Medical School at exercises held
in the hall of the National Museum. He
addressed a large audience and delivered
a message to the 23 newly made doctors
on the responsibilities of the service they
The President drove to the museum
from the White House. He entered on
the arm of the Surgeon-General of the
Navy. The President was introduced
by Medical Director R. A. Marmlon,
president of the faculty of the Naval
Medical School. As the names were:
called the diplomas were handed to
the President, who In turn presented :
them to the graduates, and at the
same time gave each a cordial hand
clasp. The diplomas became mixed,
and the President entered heartily in
the search for the right sheepskins.
After that he took all of the remaining
diplomas in one arm and called the
names himself. The President said:
Jtcgard for the Family Doctor.
Tou represent tiro profession, for you are
members of the great medical body, ahd you
are also officer of the Navy of the United
(States and therefore- you have a double stand
art to perform. I think that all of us lay
men, men and women, have a peculiar appre
ciation of what a doctor means, for I do not
suppose there is one of us who doqs not feel
the family doctor stands In a position of close
intimacy, in a position of obligation under
which one Is happy to rest to an extent that
hardly anyone else can stand; and those of
us who, I think most of us, are fortunate
enough to have a family doctor who is a be
loved, and intimate friend, realize that there
con be few closer ties of intimacy and affection
in the world..
Just as the great doctor, the man who
stands high In his profession in any city,
counts as one of the most valuable assets In
, that city's civic work, so in the Navy or
Army the effect of having thoroughly well
trained men with a high and sensitive stand
ard of professional honor and professional
duty Is well nigh Incalculable upon the serv
I am not competent to peak. save In the
.most general terms, of your professional
duties. I do want, however, to call your at
tention to one or two features connected
with them. In the first place.i In connection
with work you do for the service you have
peculiar advantages In doing the work that
will be felt for the whole profession. For
Instance, it will come to your lot to deal
peculiarly with certain typta of tropical dis
eases. Tou will have to deal with them as no
ordinary American doctor, no matter how great
his experience, will have to deal with them,
and you should nt yourself by more careful
study and preparation, to that you shall not
only be able to grapple with cases as they
come up. but in grappling with them to
make and rec6rd observations upon them that
will be of permanent value to your fellows
in civil life. Thero probably is not a branch
of the profession Into which during your ca
reer you will not have to go; no type of dis
ease that you will not have to treat, and It
is of consequence to the entire medical pro
fession that you should so fit yourselves by
study and preparation that you shall not only
be able to deal with those cases, but to deal
with them in a way that will be of advantage
to your star-at-home brethren.
improve Army Medical Service.
There is one other point. Every effort should
be. made to provide you with ample means to
do your work.. Every effort ought to be
made to persuade the National legislature
to take that view of the situation; to remem
ber that In case of war. It is Just to improvise
a great medical service for the Army and
Novj. The needed Increase Is more keenly
felt In the Army than In the Navy, because
it Is always the Army that undergoes the
greatest expansion. But It Is felt in both
cervices, and when, as is perfectly certain to
be the case if war comes with our present
preparations, there is fever in the camp.
If there is trouble among the volunteer forces
it la foolish to the greatest degree for the
public men. and especially for the public
prtee, to complain and shriek over the people
who happen to be in power af. that time. Let
them shriek, or. rather, do not let them
shriek at all, for shrieking Is a sign of hys
teria but let them solemnly 'think over and
repent of the fact that they have -not made
their representatives provide .adequately in
advance for the medical system in its person
nel and .Its material and lus organization and
mttdlcal instruments necessary la make that
organization effective, which, it prepared In
advance, will obviate the trouble which is cer
tain to come If we have war.- Iet them re

are; thajt you will work with imperfect im
plements. Tour business then will .be' to do
the very best you -can, if you have got noth

that when the crisis occurs it is almost sure
to "be the case that you will have to do no
small part Of your work With 'makeshifts; do
it. as 1 myself Saw at Santiago, the Army
physician; roughly and hastily and with but
one-fourth of the appliances that he would

make up your minds that, while you haw
done all you can to get the best material to

the lack of that material as an excuse for

XAUXICE BAXRYXO&BMS DEAD
Famous Actor Dies In Sanitarium,
Mental and Physical Wreck.
NEW YORK, March 23. Maurice Bar
rymore, the actor, died- today at A sani
tarium, af Aaltyvllle. li L
, Mr. Barrymore bad . been In falling
health for several years. Of late he
failed rapidly id mhd as well as in body
and. ,-his ' last years were f-pent in the
closest seclusion. Mr. Barrymore was
.born of English parents In India. 53 years
ago. His real name. Herbert Blythe.
probably was known to comparatively
few of the thousands who knew him as
one of the most popular actotn on. the
American stage. .Educated, at Cambridga
University, in England, young Blytjie
early prepared himself for the civil serv
ice -in India and-later -took up the pro
fession of law. He was admitted to the
bar, but soon forsook that pursuit fcr
the dramatic stage.
His first public apparance In America
?was in Boston in '1875, and sine that time
he had a leading part in many of the
great .successes of; the stag. He was at
various tbses leading man for Mndjeska
and Langtry and In. many other prominent
companies. Mr. Uarrymore also was well
Jthown as an "anther and playwright.
Among his plays was the VNadJeska,"
FAMOUS ACTOR, AUTHOR AND . PLAYWRIGHT
WHO DIED YESTERDAY
which was written for Modjeska and
"The Robbers of the Rhine." Some of
his greatest successes were with A. M.
Palmer's 'stock companies In New York.
For several years Mr. Barrymore has
been the Inmate of a sanitarium. ,
In 187b" Mr. Barrymore married Georgia
Drew, a daughter of Mrs. John Drew and
sister of John Drew, the well-known
actor. His break-down took place about
four yeare ago, while flaying at a theater
in this city, when he suddenly lost his
lines and began to talk incoherently.
Later he was removed to a sanitarium.
Although he had been in poor health ever
since his break-down, his death was not
expected. One of his successes was as
Wilding In "Captain Swift," and he alio
starred in "Diplomaoy."
There Is considerable speculation as
to the place and time when Maurice
Barrymore made his last professional
appearance in public "I think the oc- f
casion referred to was in a vaudeville
theater in New York City." said Melvin
G. WIn3tock, of the Grand Theater, last
night. "Just before Mr. Barrymore
was taken to the sanitarium he was ad
vertised to appear in a. New York vau
deville theater, and I went to hear
him. Of course, I knew that he was
not at his best, as his mental powers
were said to be failing. It was quite
a different performance from the time
when he was a leading man and after
ward a star. "Well, he came on the
stage, looking like a wreck of his
former self, and he began his lines. But
he had not proceeded very far when
his memory began to fall him, and he
came to a confused halt. Several
times he tried to go on, and the scene
began to be a painful one to us who
had known and admired Mr. Barrymore
lp his better days. At lost ho utterly
broke down, began to abuse the audi
ence, and had to be led away. This
was either the last time Barrymore
appeared In public or the next to it."-
CONSPIRACY TO BUD? A BAHK
Run on Cincinnati Concern Due to
Postal Card Advice.
CINCINNATI. O.. March 23.-The result
of a conspiracy is declared by the directors
of the Union Savings Bank & Trust Com
pany, of this city, to be the explanation of
a run on the savings department of that
institution, which, after having continued
quietly for about two weeks, was today
the means of crowding the bank with sev
eral hundred excited depositors, who failed
to reach the paying teller's window. One
woman was" knocked down juid trampled
on in the rush, but it is not believed that
her injuries will prove serious. The bank
has S2.500.O00 in cash on hand, and nearly
$8,760,000 in bonds, which cm bs converted
into cash, besides other assets to carry it
to the 517.800.000 deposits, arid the officers
express the utmost confidence in the out
come. It is charged that the postal card sejjrtce
has been used, cards being sent to deposit
ors of the bank, advising the withdrawal
of deposits, and that the telephone had
been used as a means of giving the same
advice. The bank officials say that they
have secured some of these postal cards,
and will endeavor to discover the author
of them, and when he Is found, they will
begin criminal actions.
Offers of over 52,000,000 In cash have been
made by Chicago and New York institu
tions, and other local institutions have
promised assistance,, but alt these proffers
have been declined with thanks.
As an indication of the view of local finan
ciers an offer of ?000 for the stock of the

In Its Scope.
CHICAGO, ...March 23. (SpeciaL7-Stu-dents
andjprofOEsors-af the University of
Chicago are Jubilant, today over the re-cclpt-or.a
letter from, John D. Rockefel
ler, implying the future bestowal of a
$50,000000 endowment' 'upon ' the institution
by its, founders.
i The letter does. nox. reveal any of Mr.
Rockefeller's plans, but, by reading be-
tween the lines and coupling be writer's
statements with well-known conditions at
the university, the students and faculty
are led to expect a new and greater mu
nificence on the part of the oil king.
"We will unfte In the fervent hope and
prayer that his (Dr. Harper) most valu
able life may be spared to carry out his
cherished wishes for the advancement and
growth of the university." writes Mr.
Dr. Harper's most cherished hope, ac
cording to the members of the faculty
who have been most closely associated
with him In his work, is to see the tlnl
vercity endowed with 550.000,000, which,
he considers, will-make it possible to com
plete his scheme for a gigantic educa
tional institution .
Mr. Rockefeller's letter was sent In re
ply to the telegram he received from the
university body last Tuesday, signed by
Andrew McLelsh, acting president of the
board of trustees, for the students and
.friends of the university on the occasion
or the 54th convocation of the university.
Mr. Rockefeller has never before sent a
personal- letter to the students and pro
fessors, and his action In doing so at
this time, together with his promise to
continue his Interest in the university,
has served to form a vision on the Mid
way of a vast city of learning.
"Mr. Rockefeller's letter means to me,"
said a member of the faculty, "that his
plans, which heretofore have coincided
with Dr. Harper's, will not fall through
the president's Illness."

Because Fairbanks, Foraker and Shaw
are men tioned as tho three leading 'candi
dates, it does not mean that they arc the
only possibilities, or even probabilities.
In a convention where there- are several
candidates and no man has more than a
third of the delegates, any man of Presi
dential" size from a good locality -may be
considered-"in i. the i running" until' the
final ballot . -'. "
Taff, Beverldafe, Root; . Lotlge. :
Secretary Taft Is nofnow a candidate
and It is supposed, that when the conven
tion ineets he "will, be Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court pt the United Slates. But
there Is no reasgn why a man , should
not be .taken .'from that exalted position
and made a Presidential candidate. He
has been a success Jn every position he
has held, and that has made him strong
with, the . people. A complication may
ariee In Ohio politics at "any time which
"would thrust Taft forward as a, compro
mise candidate. It will be observed, also.
that another" Indiana, man Is mentioned.
It Is scarcely- probabla that to candi
dates wlllcome from the same state, but
In case something' should happen to the
first favorite 'eon,' why Should not Indiana
torn to Senator Beverldge. Indiana had
two candidates in 1SS3, but remained true'
to the man who had the grip on the ma
chine, andhe' was nominated. BeVeridgo
mlght'cbntrol the Indiana machine before
the delegates are elected, or he may" riot'
put forward his Presidential ambitions'
now. He is young enough to see several
campaigns pass and then be a candidate.
Should the Republicans again go East
for a candidate, two men of Presidential
size are found, one in New York and the
other In Massachusetts. No man ever
received more sincere and marked praise
for his services as Secretary of War than
Elihu Root He might not be able to
secure the New York delegation. He re
fused what was known as a sure tender
of the Republican nomination for Gov
ernor last year, but in doing so it Is not
believed that' he injured his chances for
the Presidency. New York may like the
idea of having a President and decide to
put forward her best man. New York
earnestly and vigorously for Elihu Root
might nominate him. The other Eastern
er comes from New England, a section
of the country which has ever been loyal
to the Republican party and which has
furnished but one Presidential candidate
in the 50 years that the party has been
in existence. Possibly Senator Lodge
looks over Into tho Presidential pasture,
but he well knows the. difficulties, that
stand In the way of a Massachusetts man.
Idgc Is the closest friend tho President
has In Congress. If Roosevelt could name
his successor, no doubt Lodge would be
considered, but it is, doubtful whether
the power of the Administration will be
invoked even for the President's best
Elkins, Spooner, La. Follette.
A possibility of dark horses and the se
lection of some candidate after a long
deadlock is what brings out among oth
ers the name of Senator EJklns. It is
an ambition of FJkins to be President,
but he comes from a state that has only
seven electoral votes. Skins. Is also one of
the very rich men of the country, and has
all his life been identified with large
business Interests. These are the -points
that would be made against him, but he
Is politician enough to be awake and
to cize an opportunity If It should come
toy him. Many times he has said that, it
he had a big delegation like New York,
Pennsylvania, Ohio or Illinois at his com
mand, he would be nominated for1 Presi
dent. It may look a little strange to see In
cluded In a list of Presidential possibili
ties the names of Senators Spooner and
La Follette. Wisconsin, llko Iowa, Mas
sachusetts and West Virginia, Is not a
Presidential state, but something might'
happen" between now and the meeting of
the next National convention that would
mako either Spooner or La Folette a can
didate. It may happen in the Senate, or
it may bo before the people. Spooner is
now reckoned the greatest debater the
Republicans have in the Senate, a lawyer
of the first rank, and a man whose In
formation on public affairs and well-balanced
judgment make him Invaluable in
a party crisis. La Follette may carve
out a career In the Senate which will
make him the legitimate successor of
Roosevelt. He is to a certain extent an
unknown quantity, but Biay develop Into
the man whom the Republicans would
wont. On the other hand, should the
Republicans seek a Western man, a con
servative statesman, a soldier of the Civil
War, a lawyer of marked ability, a man
long trained In the public service, and
whose information is universal, tho senior
Senator from Wisconsin may be consid
ered. Illinois Has Cannon.
Illinois is another state that has never
been sufficiently doubtful to necessitate
the selection of one of its citizens as a
Presidential candidate. Illinois has given
the Republicans the mighty Lincoln and
the great soldier Grant, and has never
equaled lhem In Presidential timber since.
It would not ba strange to see Illinois
present a favorite son in Speaker Can
non. When the delegates aro chosen.
Cannon will be 63 years old. and that age,
notwithstanding the vigor of the man
and the energy which enables him to pre
side over the House of Representatives,
might prevent his selection. That he may
be considered available, there Is no doubt,
because many members of the House
think he would make a strong candidate.
But Illinois has in Judge Gross cup a man
that has been considered a Presidential
'quantity. By his court decisions ana
public utterances Be has brought himself
prominently before the cjuntry, and a
turn of the political wheel of fortune
night make him the Republican standard
bearer. Three years will bring about many
changes, and perhaps the nomination will
be settled long before the convention
meets, as it was In 1S32. 1SSC, 1900 and 1304.
Not since 1SS3 has there been a contest
In the Republican National .Convention,

It was well known before the convention

no other way, and the Idea that a medi
cine in itself can purify the blood or sup
ply new tissues and strong nerves Is ri
diculous and on a par with the fol-de-rol
that dyspepsia or Indigestion Is a germ
disease, or that other lallacy, that weak
stomach which refuses to digest food can
be made to do so by irritating and- In
flaming the bowels by pills and cathar
tics. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets cure Indi
gestion, sour stomach, gas and bloating
after meals, because they turnlsh the di
gestive principles which weak stomachs
lack, and. unless the deficiency of pepsin
and diastase is supplied, it is useless to
attempt to cure stomach trouble by the
urfc of "tonics.' "pills." and "cathar
tics" which have absolutely no digestive
power, and their only effect Is to give a
One grain -of the active principle' In
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest
3,000 grains of meat, eggs and similar
foods, and experiments have shown that
they will do this in a glass bottle at
proper temperature, but of course are
much more effective in the stomach.
There is probably no remedy so uni
versally used as Stuart's Tablets, be
cause It Is not only the sick and
ailing, but well people who use them at
every meal to Insure perfect digestion
and assimilation of food.
People who enjoy fair health take Stu
art's Tablets as regularly as they take
their meals, because they want to keep
well: prevention is better than cure", and
Etuavt's Dyspepsia Tablets do both; they
prevent indigestion and they, remove It
where It exists. The regular use of one
or two ot them after meals will demon
strate their jnerlt and efficiency better
than any other argument- . - - .

nel P. C. Boyle, editor of the Oil City,
Pa., Derrick, and for many years sta
tlstican of the oil fields In Pennsylvania,
who has come West for the purpose of
studying conditions in the Kansas and
Indian Territory oil fields, stopped In
Kansas City today.
"The world has never seen anything to
compare with the development In the oil
fields of Kansas and the Indian Terri
tory," said Colonel Boyle. "Not alone has
It opened a new era in the busines, but
the discoveries here and those further
south have demonstrated a possibility of
flndlna oil most any place between Neo
desha. Kan., and the Gulf of Mexico. I
do not say that oil can be found any
where, but there Is reason to suspect that
tho whole of that vast territory lies in
the 'pan and may be washed out."
