The Medical Trust

Denver Republican

It is a fact which cannot be successfully denied that the medical bill, which was passed by the late legislature, seeks to establish what practically would be a medical trust. It seeks to give certain men an advantage over others under the guise of protecting the public health. It denies to invalids the right to call in the services of men without professional degrees to cure their ailments. It would force them to seek relief within a certain class.

There is little progress within fixed lines. The healing art has made nearly all its progress by departing from old standards. Had the doctors of two generations ago established a trust like that which the doctors of Colorado are trying to establish in their own interest, it is doubtfull if there would have been much departure from the crude methods of treatment which characterized the practice of medicine sixty years ago.
