EUGENICS II THEME
Homeopathists Discuss Race
THEORIES ARE ADVANCED
Speakers Recommend Euthanasia
for Criminals, Degenerates and
the Insane, With Chloro
form as the Method.
The last day's session of the .annual
convention of the Oregon Homeopath
Medical Society -was an interesting one
as one of the best papers of the entire
meeting was read and widely discussed.
Dr. Ella K. Dearborn, under the gen
eral head of eugenics or race improve
ment, handled the subject of "No- Dan
ger of Race Suicide." giving some very
pronounced ideas on the subject.
"None of my ideas are new," she said
in the after-discussion. "They have
been advanced In various garbs many
times, but the world Is not yet ready
for them. There will come a time when
just such theories as I have advanced
today will be accepted as the only
safeguard for Improvement of the
Dr. Dearborn considered her sub
ject under three heads, taking first
euthanasia. She considers that for the
proper perpetuation of the human race
it is necessary to do away with crimi
nals, degenerates and the insane. For
this easy death she deemed chloroform
the best remedy. After putting these
undesirable elements out of the way,
she took up the subject of having a
state board of examiners for matri
monial candidates in order to insure
only hcaltky and physically perfect
progeny. Only those who are able to
pass the physical examination with a
high standard should be allowed to
propagate the race, others of insuffi
cient health or physical strength being
submitted to artificial sterilization.
Dr. George "VVIgg. presiding, took
Xart in the discussion which followed,
declaring that it was not possible at
the present time to take any legal
steps in the matter; as it was simply a
question of moral education. Dr. J. K.
Reader and Dr. Wlgg were also heard
In an entertaining medical discourse.
The afternoon programme was taken
up by the discussion of gynaecology,
obstetrics, ophthalmology, otology and
laryngology, and while not of Inter
est to the laity was thoroughly enjoyed
by the delegates.
There were several distinguished vis
itors present yesterday, among them
Dr. Mary Cronemiller. Sacramento; Dr.
S. M. Siewers. Cincinnati; Dr. Cora
Smith Eaton, a prominent surgeon of
Minneapils; Rev. Anna H. Shaw, Dr.
E. R. Kellogg, of Los Angeles; Dr. Kuy
kendall. New York; Dr. Charles E.
Grove and wife, Spokane; and Dr. C H.
Atwood, Eugene. The convention ad
journed yesterday afternoon.

members of the American Library As
sociation yesterday. The steamer left

Some of the delegates left last night
for their homes, but a large party re
mained in Portland for a few days'
visit to the Exposition. During the

time for pleasure.
