Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: In Ireland, or in Edinburgh, for instance, he could study almost as cheaply as on the Continent. Dr. E. S. Stevenson. April 1905. 217. Dr. de Jager. When a medical man comes to the Cape Colony, on what degree do you register now?--We register only British qualifications. 218.

In the case of a man holding a foreign M.D., and an L.S.A., do you not think if you were to practise in a place where you had such a man against you that you would be at a disadvantage?--I do not think so, as the public judges a man for what he is worth and not on account of his diplomas. 220. Why did you have such a tremendous influx of foreign degrees just prior to the passing of the reciprocity regulation?--Simply because South Africa is a field for adventurers of every kind. 221. You do not know that a number of men came from the Transvaal and Orange River Colony because they had been driven out by the war?--Yes, there were a few cases of that sort, too. 222.

Do you know whether that was so?--No; I heard that stated at a meeting of the Medical Council, but it is not from my own calculations. 223. Is it a fact that during the war a great number of British medical men came into this country without registering?--No; I believe a good many came, but they were not all allowed to practise. We have in a few cases allowed men to practise for more
