Dr. Chapman's Revision of the Tuberculosis Report

Extract

The result of Dr. Chapman's investigations is stated in the forefront of his report to the Council, a report which is now being circulated with the same publicity as was afforded to the original document. He “does not in any way traverse any conclusions and recommendations contained in the report of the Committee on Tuberculosis, but, on the contrary, in several directions supports them more strongly.” This finding, which we indicated in an occasional article in April last, cannot fail to be most gratifying to the Committee, and to every loyal member of the Association. It is late in the day to write in appreciation of Dr. Chapman as a past master in the science of vital statistics, and it was felt that a revision at his hands would assuredly place the questions involved beyond all doubts. This feeling he has entirely justified. The Association is greatly indebted to him for the labour he has bestowed upon the marshalling of these figures, and the lucid results of his inquiry. The whole of the documents and the returns originally made to the Tuberculosis Committee have been examined by Dr. Chapman, and the result is an independent, competent audit in which the vouchers have been compared and the final results published. It is again brought to notice what a vast amount of work Dr. France accomplished in the service of the Committee, and it is again to be observed that the conclusions and recommendations proceeding from his secretarial labours were not adopted by the distinguished physicians who formed that Committee without due care and consideration. Practical men are less concerned with methods than results, and the broad facts evidently pointed to the conclusions and recommendations so thoroughly endorsed on reconsideration of the minutiae by independent critics.
