The Chicago Herald of February Ttli contains a screed written from Detroit and signed "Mc." - who in the worlc can it be? - attacking the medical de partineut of the University and rehashing the old and exploded charges that the "Doctor factory" here in Ann Arbor cannot supply sufflcient clinical ma terial, to edúcate medical students prop erly, and consequently should be removed to Detroit. The falsehood of the assertious made have been shown up time and time again, until it has got to be sort of a chestnut. So far this year there have been li obstetrical cases at the hospitals here while at the University hospital of Pa., at Philadelphia, the report of 1890 only shows 20 cases during the entire year o] 12 months. These are the cases over which the kickers of Mc's school raise such an outcry. In the same hospital in Philadelphia - and can Detroit hope to outdo Philadelphia in this line? - there were 1334 patients admitted during the 12 months of last year, while 1249 patients received treatment at the U. of M. hospitals in the little baokwoods city of Ann Arbor during nine months only last year. Dost thou like the comparison, Mc? That article also asserts that the ilents who have been educated at this University have gone away from here only half instrueted in their profession, and without proper knowledge thereof - the only way to secure which is by the removal of the department to Detroit. As a complete and handsome refutatioo of thfs impudent assertion, we give below i purtial list of graduates trom the medical department of the U. of M. who are at present holding prominent positions in other colleges, positious tliey could only hold except with a thorongh knowledge of their profession. If this list, whk-h is not complete by any means, forthere are graduates of this medical school oocupying prominent positions all over the world, is not a "corker" so to speak upon "Mc" and bis amoosin' kickers, then such a thing as a "corker" never was knowii : 1851- Robcrt Clark Kedzie, Professor oí Clu-mistry In the Michigan Agricultural College since ltkii. 1862- Morse Kont Taylor, Professor of General Pathology and Hygiëne In Chicago Medical College. 1853 - Abel Comlnga Koherts.

If llussia has a class of people that is objectionable, why should she aud all other nations of the earth atternpt to ship them over the Atlantic to the United States? And if they are shipped here why should Uncle Sam not inimediately send them back in the ships they came in and allow the owners thereof to stand the expense themselves ? The idea that the United States must become the pest house of the world is one that should bedispelled {rom the minds of all foreign countries.
