President Roosevelt's message is notable among similar documents for the attention which it gives to matters bordering on medical and sanitary science. As medical men we can heartily approve what he says in regard to the dangers of urban concentration and crowded tenement districts, child labor, etc., but we wish that he had made insistent mention of the importance of passing the pure-food bill left over by the previous session, and really the most important measure now before Congress. The poisoning of the population for profit by mercenary manufacturers is in its way a much more vital question than any mentioned in the message. We do not know what the program of the Congressional leaders is. It is said by newspapers, with what truth and authority we know not, that, beyond the passage of the usual ordinary and extraordinary appropriation bills and some special colonial legislation, little will be done.
