CONQUEST BY SCIENCE
W (Indianapolis News.)
In referring to the reasons ofr
holding the exposition at San
Francisco, Dr. W. W. Campbell
in a speech before the American
Association for the Advancement
of Science, said that indirectly
the exposition was the outcome
of one of the numerous con
quests by science which liave
been carired out In recent years.
The expositoin is being held to
"celebrate the opening of the
Panama canal, but the digging
of the canal would never have
been possible without the appli
cation of science to certain pre
liminary problems which the
promoters of the project had to
face. And the solution of these
problems began almost with the
. beginning .of modern scientific
knowledge. Malarial and yellow
fever infection was the stumb
ling block which had discour
aged others who had attempted
to make a water passage be
tween the Atlantic and the Pa
cific, and it was in the conquest
of these that pure and applied
science demonstrated to the
world that it was. a factor to be
regarded with a great deal of re
spect. Back of Pasteur, Lister and
Koch, to whom, the civilized
world owes a debt greater than
almost any other, were such as
Vesalius, who began his ana
tomical dissections about 1530;
Harvey, who discovered the cir
culation of the blood about 1616;
Hooker, who introduced the mi-
croscope about 16G5; Leeuwen-
heck, who discovered protozoa
in 1675 and bacteria in 1687, and
others of less importance. After
the contributions of Pasteur,
Lister and Koch inbacteriology,,
came the investigations of Reed
and others upon yellow fever in
fection, and of Laveran, Man
son and Ross upon malarial in
fection. Later came Drs. Lazear
and Carroll, who investigated
yellow fever in Cuba in 1900.
Their lives were often risked in
their experiments, and, finally,
Dr. Lazear gave his life in an ef
fort to find the cause of the

to make plans for the canal, it

was alive at the end of 30 days,
and 12 of the 36 nurses Bent with
the original corps lost thor lives,
while tho laborers died by tho
thousands. But Lazear had
shown tho way, and beforo con
struction was begun, the know
ledge for which ho had given
his life was applied to conditions
as agents of this government
found them. Even had it been
possible to complete tho canal In
spite of malaria and yellow
fovor, tho ships passing through
it would have carrlod the dread
disease into every port of tho
world, and the canal would have
been more a menace to the world
than a benefit.
While Dr. Campbell deplores
the application of science to the .
killing and crippling of men in
tho present war, he points to the
progress in medical science
which has made It posslblo to
save a larger proportion of the
wounded than lias horetdforo

M. Perlgord. a dark little man with
black freckles and a kinky beard,
