Legislation in Colorado

THE omnipotence of Truth, and the impotence of error,have again been very clearly illustrated by the action of Governor Peabody of Colorado, in vetoing the "Sanford Medical Bill," recently passed by the legislature.

The authors of the bill disclaimed any intention of restricting the practice of Christian Science, and even allowed an amendment to be adopted in the Senate, as follows: "Nothing in this act, however, shall be construed to prohibit the practice of the religious tenets of any church whatso-ever," but at a very late hour in the session, and through a misunderstanding of the conditions governing the practice of Christian Science, the following amendment was added, and it was found impossible to have it eliminated. "But in no case shall such person [who is practising the religious tenets of any church] practise in contagious or infectious diseases recognized as dangerous to the public health, subject to quarantine regulations, unless they have passed the examinations required by this act."
