Scarcely had the second annual tri
state medical convention been called to
order at the Masonic Temple this morn
ing, when an unsuccessful effort was
made to disrupt the organization
r L. Tj. Love, president of the Washing
ton btate Medical society, Taconia, con
cluded his presidential address by of-
fering a resolution that the sessions, of
the trl-state association, which includes
the states of Oregon, Washington and
Idaho, be discontinued, his argument
being that the present session ' Is Ittrt
really a trl-state affair, but a meeting
where the great preponderance of dele
gates represent Oregon alone. Mr. Love
said that the work of the Washington
society had bef-n hindered, because of the
tn-state arrangement.
jne resolution was not kindly re
ceived. Other delegates from Washing
ton expressed themselves as not approv
ing or tne proposed disorganization, as
Id Idaho und Oregon delegates to the
convention. After an attempt to sub
mtt the matter to the house of delegates
had been frustrated, and after efforts
to amend the resolution had been lost
in the general discussion under, way, l)r,
K. A. J. Mackenzie of Portland succeeded
in getting through a motion to table the
resolution. - Coming -a-It did so early
In the session, and precipitating such
opposition, some of the delegates hardly
realsed what It was all about before the
whole question had been disposed of,
150 Delegates Xresent.
About 150 delegates- and local mem
bers attended this morning's session
Dr. W. F. Howard, president of the
Idaho Medical association, Pocateilo,
presided, with Dr. M. B. Marcellus, sec
retary of the Oregon State Medical as
sociation, as secretary.
Dr. W. T. Williamson, of Portland.
welcomed the delegates on behalf of
the Oregon society and the city. Dr,
C. A. Smith, editor of Northwest Medi
cine, Seattle, responded briefly to Dr.
Williamsons address.
After Dr. Xpve's address. Dr. Howard
spoke on ''Medical Reciprocity in the
Northwest." Dr. Howard told of the
need of more uniform medical laws and
examinations in the three states In
cluded in the convention, and of the
efforts being made to that end. At
the conclusion of his address, Dr. How
ard moved that the state societies
be instructed by the convention to draft
proposed legislation covering this phase
or the medical work in the three gtate.i
to be presented to the next sessions of
the state legislatures.
Damage Cases Increase.
This -motion was amended by Dr. C.
A. Smith of Seattle so that the presi
dent of each state society will appoint
one member of his society to act with
like representatives from the other so
cieties to pass upon the practicability
of Dr. Howard's idea, and report back
to the convention before adjournment.
Dr. E. A. Sommer, president of the
Oregon State- Medical society, gave an
address in which he called attention to
the increasing number of actions for
damages for alleged malpractice being
brought against physicians, often, be
said, because the physician, though
skilled and reliable, had failed to bring
about a complete cure In aome case
which he had handled.
"it. Is very often the case," said Dr
Sommer, "that such actions are brought
just In an attempt to evade paying the
physician s pr surgeon's Just blu." '
Dr. Sommer1 also made recommends
Hons ldoking to an adjustment Of this
condition, and the matter will be taken
up by aTe'pfesealative committee for
further action. - -;-r.:.-.--:- -r.oi-
