Medical Legislation in Texas

Correspondents from Texas send interesting accounts of the history of the proposed medical legislation in that state.

On the 19th of February, 1901, the legislature of Texas passed a bill regulating the practice of medicine and surgery. When the bill came up for discussion in the senate Senator Dibrell spoke in opposition to any bill which, while assuming to regulate the practice of medicine, should strike at those who do not use drugs. He cited instances where cures had been effected by the so-called "irregular" practitioners who used no drugs, after "regulars" had failed.
