Legislation in Indiana

The legislature of Indiana, at their session just closed, passed a Bill, the purpose of which evidently is to prevent all kinds of healing practice not coming within the regularly established schools of medicine. We are informed this Bill was not signed by the governor of that state, but that under its constitution the Bill becomes a law after the expiration of a certain number of days, without the governor's signature. We suppose, therefore, this Bill is now a law upon the statute books of Indiana. A copy of that part of it prohibiting all but the regulars from practising, has been sent us, and is as follows:—

"Section 8. To open an office for such purpose or to announce to the public in any way, a readiness to practise medicine in any county of the state, or to prescribe for, or to give surgical assistance to, or to heal, cure, or relieve, or to attempt to heal, cure, or relieve those suffering from injury or deformity, or disease of mind or body, or to advertise, or to announce to the public in any manner a readiness or ability to heal, cure, or relieve those who may be suffering from injury or deformity, or disease of mind or body, shall be to engage in the practice of medicine within the meaning of this act.
