Every physician residing in the Fourth Indiana Congressional District should remember that W. S. Holman, as chairman of the Appropriations Committee of the House of Representatives, did all he could to defeat the appropriation for the Pan-American Medical Congress, and that he persistently votes against every measure which is for the advancement of medical science. If he were governed by purely patriotic motives no one could impugn them, but when we know that a worthless member of his family was foisted on the Geological Survey and there retained for a long time on the public pay roll, we can assume reasonably that his so-called " watch-dog-of-the-Treasury " act is one of hypocrisy, and for demagogic purposes only.
If the doctors in the Fourth Indiana District will exert themselves a little, this interesting person will be properly retired at the next election.
