A striking fact was reported in the Associated Press dispatches from Moscow, April 5. In view of the probability of a cholera epidemic, a congress of physicians has just been held in that city and, as an essential first step toward the warding off of the threatened scourge, the members advise a complete and radical change in the whole government and administration of Russia.

In the present unfortunate condition of the country, the political problems have, to this extent, become also the medical ones, and it would not, under ordinary
