fact, set forth would no doubt cause

Indignation meeting and appoint a
committee to Investigate the charges.
This, of course, would probably re

the hospital. If not barred from fur-
ther practice. We have no desire to
cause anyone any unnecessary
trouble, provided, of course they

'The Shawnee t'larlon," a reputed
toclalist weekly published as Its la-
bel indicate, at lola, Kans.. and dis-
tributed here, in which the medical
profession of Shawnee and the mu-
nicipal hospital are assailed by in-
Blnuation and innuendo, led to a
special meeting of the Pottawatomie
ty who practice at the municipal
hospital, and there to no more care-
fully and properly conducted hospi-
tal in thiB or any other state than
the Shawnee City hospital. It Is also
r.'ported to be the only municipal
hospital in tbe state which has not
become a burden on the taxpayers.
Such unfounded and manufactured
charges when they strike at the
reputation of an ably managed In

hut a criminal libel, and they deserve
