Abstract

On various occasions heretofore the Journal has endeavored to impress upon the members of the medical profession the utility and need of their taking a more active part in the government of this country, both as regards National and municipal affairs. The subject is one, however, that is not exhaustible by one or a few editorial utterances, and it is one that in some one of its many aspects is always demanding consideration. While the secular and religious papers are continually demanding the co-operation of good citizens in political affairs to prevent their being controlled, as is too often the case, by the bad citizens, it is certainly not out of place for medical journals to call the attention of its readers from time to time to their responsibilities in this matter. This is the more justifiable and necessary from the fact that heretofore we have as a profession neglected
