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 likewise explained. 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 theory. "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 again. Cullom on Cuba. Wasiiinoton, Dec. 10. Public inter est in the Cuban question was shown to day by a full attendance in the galleries of the senate to hear the speech of Sen ator Cullom, of which he had given notice. Before he was recognized for a speech, petitions for the recognition of the independence of Cuba sented. National Civil Service. 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 the last national campaign, dwelling es - specially upon the splendid uprising "which resulted in Indianapolis gold standard convention. The history of the civil service reform movement, he declared is in itEelf proof that effective political organization does not depend on office-holders. Charles Richardeoa discussed the new city charter of Philadelphia. Silas W.Burt, ofNsv Yj ik, spoke on-the 'New System in Ne.v York." To ROSEBURG'S OPPORTUNITY Encyclopedic Convict Competition. Sax Fkanxisco, Dec. S. Oicar Lewis, manager of the Manufacturers' & Pro ducers' Association, will this morning present for approval to the cede commis sioners at Sacramento an act which if passed by the legislature will effectually prevent the competition of California penal institutions wiih free local labor and home industries. The essential feature of the proposed law is contained in the following portion of tUe bill: "It snail be unlawlul for any person confined" or em ployed . i a any.penal Tnsti lution in the state of California to engage or be employed in the manufacture of anything whatever that U an article of commerce in this state except jute bags and jute and broken stone for roads and highways." The Southwick bill, before congress, which prohibits the shipment cf convict made gcod3 from one state to another with the local bill just spoken of will give home manufacturers much protection. In case, however, of the failure of one or the other of theee measures, the cede commission has prepared a series of acts designed to mitigate the evils of convict labor. One of these bills abolishes the license for the sale of goods manufac tured in this state. This is designed to place them upon an equality with goods manufactured elsewhere, which, under the interstate commerce law, cannot be so taxed. An amendment to the political code provides that all prison goods made in this state shall have the brand convict made, and a new section of the penal code provides that any person dealing in such unlabeled goods shall be punished a tine of from $100 to $1000 or by im prisonment for from 10 days to one year or by both fine and imprisonment. By still another act all public bodies in this state are required to ;ive preference to California preducta. Treasurer's Notice.

Dr. Zortuchaw was shot in tho chin, tho bullet breaking his jaw aud passing out near tho neck and shoulders. A eccond bttllut wounded him in the ab-domeu. Costly Infatuation. Paris, France, Dec. 4. Legal pro ceedings in lunacy against a wealthy young woman named Marie Saudiet have made official record of an extraor dinary story that off and on has been the gossip of the boulevards for three years. Away back in '93 she became infatuated with a Hungarian musician named Ferko, who was the leader of nn orchestra in one ol the swell cales on the rue d'Eljs;e. Ferko was married. Marie gavo his wife $5000 on condition that she would return with her two chil dren to her home and remain there for tho rest of her life. The young girl's family made futilo efforts to break off tho liaison, and it continued until a couple of weeks ago when Ferko died and wa3 buried by his mistress with great pomp and ceremony. After the departure of his wife he gave up his position and became a habitue of the races, clubs ami gambling dens, and according to the papers filed in court he squandered in dissipation in this period not lees than $"50,000 of his iuaniorata's fortune. Since his death she herself has plunged madly into dissipation, and it is now proposed to incarcerate her and appoint a conservator for the estate, which, not withstanding the drain upon it, exceeds in vilno $1,000,00;).
