From the British Medical Journal, 2, 1314, of 1899.

Special Correspondence

New Zealand seems to be an Eldorado for cancer curers, herbalists, faith and mind healers "et hoc genus omne", and it is an absurd fact that some members of the House of Representatives even suggested to grant some of them licenses to practise. In a country so far advanced in legislation, with its female franchise, old age pensions, etc, this would have been a decided retrograde step, but fortunately the suggestion was negatived by the Government.

Provided courtesy of retired anaethetist Basil Hutchinson who hand-copied it from an old BMJ some years ago when doing historical research.
