Notwithstanding the protest of the American Medical Association and numerous other medical and scientific societies, the Committee on the District of Columbia has reported a bill to restrict vivisection in the District of Columbia. Senator Gallinger (homeopathist) of New Hampshire, who has charge of this matter is on record in favor of absolute prohibition and will probably push it to a final consideration. The time has come, therefore, for the profession throughout the country to awaken to the gravity of the occasion. It must act and act speedily. No one should delay for a single day to file his individual protest with the Senators and Representatives from his own State.
In our minutes of the Association meeting the resolutions of the Association will be found, clearly setting forth the opinion of the great representative body on this subject.
