News Items [excerpt]

     The Compensation to President McKinley’s Physicians.—The U. S. Senate has agreed to an amendment to the general deficiency bill which provides for an appropriation of $45,000 to cover all unpaid expenses incurred during the last illness of President McKinley at Buffalo including compensation for the physicians in attendance. The bill provides that no part of the sum appropriated shall be paid to any person in the employ of the government. Under this provision neither Surgeon General Rixey of the navy nor Dr. Eugene Wasdin of the U. S. Marine Hospital-Service will receive any extra compensation for their services.
