The testimony offered in the Senate by Senator John D

Los Angeles (Cal.) Express

The testimony offered in the Senate by Senator John D. Works with relation to the benefits received by himself and members of his family from Christian Science treatment, does not differ in degree from the testimony of scores of thousands who have been restored to well-being by Christian Science after all other forms of treatment had failed. The high station and integrity of the speaker, the place in which he spoke, the immediate audience he addressed, all combined to make the event conspicuous and to lend additional importance to the testimony offered; but in themselves, wonderful as they are, the cures to which Senator Works bore personal witness are but typical of hundreds of thousands that have been wrought by healers believing with full faith "on him."

The occasion that drew forth from Senator Works that recital of benefits achieved made his utterances appropriate. A prodigious campaign is in progress to place the power of the federal government at the disposal of a single school of medicine. Under the guise of establishing a national bureau of health, the proponents of a medical trust are plotting to subject the bodies of the men and women of the United States to the medical jurisdiction of the American Medical Association. Senator Works opposes that just as he would oppose, in his capacity as a legislator, the erection by the government of a Christian Science bureau to which all citizens should be subject, regardless of personal convictions.
