The report of the committee appointed by the Medical Society of the County of New York to suggest methods for the prophylaxis of venereal disease is an interesting document. It was presented in abstract at the last meeting, November 25, of the Society, and we are enabled to give its salient points by anticipation. Each of the usually suggested methods for the repression of prostitution and its inevitable consequences is discussed, and the preventive measures that can be applied with promise of success, considering the ethical temper of our people, are especially dwelt on. The committee has not been led into impracticabilities, either by the difficulty of the subject or by the urgent need for action that is felt by every medical man who considers seriously the dangers to public health at present pharisaically overlooked.
