WASHINGTON. March 22. President
Wilaon's recent statement withdrawing
the aid of this Government from what
was popularly known aa the "six-power
loan" means the retirement of the
United States from participation in Fax
The President today talked about
China Informally with some of his call,
ers, among them George Bronson Rea,
technical secretary of the railway com
mittee empowered by the Chinese pro
visional government to construct 10,
000 miles of trunk rallwaya in China.
Mr. Rea explained to the President
that without the aid of the United
States Government American capital
had been enlisted in the railway en
terprise, but that It was desirable to
know how far the United States would
go In protecting what Mr. Rea termed
"honorable contracts between American
business men and the Chinese govern
ment," Independent of political connec
tion. Action Approved In China.
The President asked Mr. Bea to pre
Dare and aubmit to him a memoran
dum and promised to study the Question
carefully. Mr. Bea pointed out mat
the objectionable features of the six
power loan project, to which China
herself had objected, were those which
concerned the Internal administration
of China and that his relations with
Sun Yat Sen and the Chinese Republic
were such that he knew the action of
President Wilson had met with ap
proval In China.
Mr. Wilson indicated that the devel
opment of the Administration's policy
toward China would be gradual ana
well measured, that there was no in
tention of withdrawing the potential
influence for protection which this
Government has exerted In respect of
China, and that the Wilson Adminis
tration would make a vigorous effort
to promote American trade Interests in
Partnerhla to Be Avoided.
The President's viewpoint was that
the United Statea would be In a far
better, position to help preserve the
integrity of China by remaining out
side of any particular agreements
which might have for their object a
voice in China's political future than by
The Wilson Administration thinks It
can win more favor with China and be
of more actual service as a disinter
ested friend than as an ambitious part
ner In any loan agreement, which by
its terms might bind the United States
to future programmes or the powers
with respect to China
The policy of the United States has
been only partially announced, this
Government thus far having given ex
pression merely to Its aversion to the
idea of interfering with China's in
ternal affairs. That a pronouncement
soon might be made by President Wil
son, setting forth the hopes of this
Government for a share in the trade

ADDRESS BEFORE MEDICAL MEN
Ef BERLIN SENSATIONAL.
Ever since Dr. . Friedrlch Franz
1 Frledmann first made his sensational
' announcement that he had discovered
a positive cure for tuberculosis, the
attention of the entire civilized world
has been directed .toward this young
German physician, who Is now dem
onstrating his treatment In New York
and other Eastern cities.
His address delivered before the
Berlin Medical Society on November
Si 1012, In which he first mads hie
dramatic assertions, therefor Is of
general interest, as those persons who
are not themselves sufferers from one
form or another of this dread dis
ease know persons who are affllclted
and who may be benefited if Dr.
Frledmann's method proves success
ful. The following translation of the
address, with the purely technical
terms and expressions of Interest to
medical men only, Is from the Klln

Self - confidence and overwhelming
faith in his treatment have character
ized the private and the professional
acts of Dr. F. F. Frledmann ever since
his startling address made him a sub
ject of world-wide interest.
Krom the start he has had strong
opposition from members of the medi
cal profession, but he has had Just as
many earnest and sincere supporters.
Medical men in America are inclined
to view his reputed discovery conserva-
M-.lt, hut all are honeful that it Will
accomplish the amazingly successful re
sults that he claims for It.
in hi Berlin address Dr. Frledmann
did not describe the process by which
h obtains his serum, but he has since
explained that It is extracted from
turtles inoculated with tuDercuiar
bacilli. It Is understood that it was
nmuri for him to Inoculate turtle

free from danger of further Infection.
Opinion Widely Divided.

Dancing as Cure.
WASHINGTON, March 22. The whipping-post
for white slave traffickers
and seducers of women, more careful
training of children and abolition of
Joy rides and ragtime dancing were ad
vocated as remedies for the social evil
at a hearing today conducted by the
Illinois Senatorial Vice Commission,
which came to Washington primarily
to Interest President Wilson in a Nation-wide
The Commission secured the promise
of President Wilson to consider their
request for him to call a conference of
Governors and representatives of Vice
Commissioners of various states to
Aturiv tha social problem, the confer
ence to be held in Washington as soon
as practicable. Representative iilli, oi
Illinois, agreed on request of the com
mittee to Introduce In Congress a bill
creating a commission to look Into vice
conditions In the District of Columbia.
Witnesses Hold Men to Blame.
At the hearing, attended by many
prominent women and men interested
in social welfare work, the low wage
question as a cause of girls going
wrong was discussed, s. eral of the
witnesses decrying the idea, insisting
that lack of education and resisting
force had much more to do with the
downfall of women. Men, too, were
blamed as primarily responsible for the
degradation of girls.
Witnesses who declared that low
wages were not responsible for social
vice, admitted, however, on being ques
tioned by Lieutenant-Governor O'Hara,
head of the Commission, that higher
wages for working girls would better
equip them to resist 11 and all said
that a minimum wage law for girls
would be of great benefit.
$S Fixed aa Mlnimnm.
Eight dollars a week as a minimum
wage for women was the generally ac
cepted sum estimated by the witness.

minimum living wage fo girla
Mrs. Wiley advocated sex hygiene
instruction to the young as one of the
baslo remedies of the social evU and
urged women police for cities and en
franchisement of women.
"Give us the franchise." she said,
"and we will raise the age of consent
so that 12-year-old girls cannot have
their bodies given away."
Mra Wiley and other witnesses also
declared that employers of underpaid
girls and women had not the moral
right to give money to charities out
of the earnings of their enterprises
until they first had increased the wages
of their employes.
Early Marriages Advocated.
Dr. W. C. Woodward, health officer of
the District of Columbia, urged the en
couragement of early marriage among
young men as one of the remedies for
the social evil. He placed the responsi
