C. H. Carson, of Kansas City, Mo., with whose unsavory career readers of THE JOURNAL are familiar,1 was found guilty in the criminal court of Jackson County on Thursday, September 10, of practicing medicine without a license. Judge Porterfield, the trial judge, assessed the maximum fine of $500 against him. Under the Missouri medical practice act, this offense is only a misdemeanor and consequently can only be punished by fine. This verdict marks the close of a case which has attracted much attention, owing to the long career of the defendant and the ridiculous methods employed by him in treating his “patients.”
