New York (N. Y.) Telegraph
It is the custom in this city to arrest relatives of a person who dies, if they did not hire a doctor to treat the sick one during illness. If a Christian Science healer has been employed by the sick person or relatives, the healer also is arrested. And the physicians of the city grow hoarsely indignant because of the Christian Scientist's lack of success. But how about the doctor's success? Do they always cure patients? A morning newspaper published a list of thirty-two children in various parts of the country who were alleged to have died from diphtheria and other diseases in the last thirteen years under Christian Science treatment, and Virgil O. Strickler, a former reader of a Christian Science church, replies by showing that there were seventeen hundred and fifteen deaths from diphtheria in 1910 in New York city, of children who were being treated by doctors.
Doctors clamor for the arrest of Science healers, and Mr. Strickler properly asks, "Shall doctors be arrested because their patients also died?"
Most of the trouble about Christian Science is due to the action of doctors. Fees probably are at the bottom of the matter.
