Edmore, Mich., May 14, 1907.
To the Editor:
—Regarding your comment on Dr. Miller's letter in The Journal, May 11, 1907, page 1617, couldn't Drs. Bye and Coffee be prosecuted for receiving money under false pretenses? Surely such a charge could be made from such cases as Dr. Miller reports. Or if that is not feasible, perhaps the postoffice authorities would take action if such frauds were brought to their notice. It seems inhuman that such vampires are allowed to feed on the poor and ignorant for want of some one to start a case against them.
