LIVING THINGS IN CANCERS.
tdheicn(a of the micro-p3raeite, or
germ, theory of the cause of cancer have
come into possession of what they be
lieve is fresh proof of the correctness of
their position, says the New York
Ledger. This proof is a case in a Berlin
hospital, which has attracted the atten
tion of experts all over the world.
A young woman and a middle-aged
man, both suffering from cancer of the
stomach, wero taken to Professor Van
eyden'a University hospital in Berlin.
The physicians tapped both patients to
remove accumulated fluid, and exam
ined the eecrelion very carefully, with
the retult that living organisms were de
tected. They were supposed to belong
to the protozoa.
The fluid was then submitted for ex
amination to Dr. Scbaudinn, an emin
ent expert connected with the Berlin
Diversity, lie had had much experi
ence investigating protozoa, tie de
lected the unmistakable presence of
germs in the Quid taken from both
cases, and named them Lej denia gem
mipara Schaudinn. Both he and Pro
fessor von Lsyden are investigating the
subject still further, and will make
shortly a report of the result of their observations.
The germ theory, which has been
strengthened very sensibly by the Ger-
mau doctors' experiments and observa
tions, is not a new .one in cancer, but is
now held by a large number os special-
sts in both Eurore and this country.
The old-style theory, sMil ad.iered to
ery largely, is that the growth of cancer
is duo to the proliferation of misplaced
cells. In other words cells become mis
placed and are in the nature of stray
issue and seek to establish their
rowth in their new habitat. In do-
so they develop into a cancerous
growth. This is the long-accepted
Cohnheim theory. Some Euro
pean specialists undertook to com
bat Cohnheim'a cancer theory some
ears ago. Drs. Rufer and Walier, of
London, after extensive research, con
tributed a paper on the subject, which
formed the basis of subsequent develop
ments. They advanced thp micro-para-
eite theory, and arsmed that terms
which develop under certain influences
not known or explained are taken into
the system, just as other germs are, by
food, water and air.
The cancer specialists cf the world
haye divided themselves into two
schools, accepting one or the other
theory. Neither side, however, pre-
teuds that the queatioa has been settled
bsyonci a doubt, and all hands are
awaiting with the greatest interest the
result of the German doctors' decision in
the present case. It is conceded that
their verdict will go a long way toward
settling the question.
In an address read before the Medico-
Cnirurgical Society of Gla?glow, and
printed in the British Medical Journal,
three years ago, Dr. Joseph Coast, of
Glasjow, gave convincing proofs of the
correctnesi of the theory of Drs. Rufer
and Walker. He contended that the
Cohnheim theory requires the existence
of a tinsle piece of tissue, growing in a
separate form and independent of the
eurrounding tissue. Thi3 requirement
he rejected, and that instead of the sin
gle, independent tisiiie, there is evi
dence that the normal tissue assumes a
peculiar growth. A cancer, he con
cludes, is infectious, and thus proof is
furnished of its parasitic origin.
The question of perhaps greatest im
portance the Rufer and alter advo
cates have had to deal with is the possi
bility of tho production of tissue growth
such as cancer by parasitic agency. Tu-
birculosis is not a growth. To prove
that such can be the result, Dr. Coats
cited a case of malignant goiter. He
found it in tumors of an unmistakable
tissue growth. This disease, he asserts,
is endemic in certain localities, resemb
ling malarial diseases in ttiat respect.
The explanation, he atserts, is the ex
istence in the soil cf those localities of a
morbid poison, which gets into the bod
ies of persons, as malaria. If such
poisons can produce the growth of a
goiter with distinct tissue, he concludes
that tho tistue origin of cancer can be
An expert in cancer said recently that
physicians did not consider the question
as settled, but tho weight of opinion was
now clearly on the side of the parasitic
"We are waiting with interest," he
said, "the result of the experiments of
tho Berlin hospital doctors, and think
that good results may come from them.
Still, the question is susceptible of wide
discussion. The most we can agree
upon now is that a cancer is a malignant
tissue grort tti, and we can cut it out,
with the jHJteibuity of its growing

Philadelphia, Dec. 10.- The annual
meeting of the National Civil Service
Reform League wa3 begun today. Dele
gates represent lhe principal cities of
the United States. The executive com
mittee chose George McEnany and A.
S. Frissel, both of New York, secretary
wero pre-! and treasurer respectively.
I Robert B. Booker, civil Eervice com-
Cnllom began by saying that while he miesioner of New York, reviewed the
was not disposed to criticise President I great political movement of the country
Cleveland, he had hoped for a more pos
itive expression of tho true American
continental policy from him. Cullom
spoke of the record of Spaiu for cruelty
and oppression, both in the treatment of
her own people at home up to the present
century and in her policy toward the
provinces on tnis continent.
Spain, continued to be, he said, what
she had always been, a robber nation.
The time had come, he declared, for this
nation to announce the speedy termina
tion of Spanish control of the island at
the gateway of the Mexican gulf, neces
sary alike to the welfare of these islands
and the people of the United States.
Tho Cubans could never be conquered
and the war of extermination must stop.
Cuba is already lost to Spain, Cullom
claimed. The American veople were
coming to consider the Cuban situation
as a great political continental question.
It was the doty of. the United States to
nee its power to declare that no "charnel-house
of ruin" shall be continued in
West Indian waters.
"We shall not claim Cuba as a reward
for eaving her from the slaughter," said
Cullom "but free Cuba is the reward.
Means mdst be found to settle the Cu
ban question speedily, and if other
means fail we may consider properly the
fair purchase of Cuba."
The senator received close attention
throughout. He offered a resolution de
claring tbatjlhe "Extinction of Spanish
title and the termination of Spanish con
trol of the islands at the gateway of the
Gulf of Mexico are necessary."
in which seii-organizing power was
made manifest from the revolution to

specially upon the splendid uprising
"which resulted in Indianapolis gold

declared is in itEelf proof that effective

designed to mitigate the evils of convict
