The Crime of Vaccination
A GREAT DISCOVERY is universally ac-
claimed by this name at the moment
of its birth. It is as an infant whose
parents and their friends vociferously herald
its advent and prophesy its greatness.
The public is ever anxious to welcome any
innovation when it has within it the infinite
possibilities of the unknown coupled with the
Generally some element of truth is present
as an excuse for its existence. Whether suf-
ficient of this be present or not only time and
the future can determine.
It must run its circle to test its verity dur-
ing the labor of proof.
If it were not greeted with enthusiasm it
would hardly be given a trial. This very
enthusiasm at its birth is the momentum that
carries it to the completion of the circle and
finally determines its status and its truth.
As De Bruyire said, "The last thing we learn
about anything is where to begin."
From notes, researches, and experiments
made since 1 889 facts have been elucidated,
which will at first excite wonder, and which
must then certainly stimulate deeper and more
thorough investigation in the bacteriological
With more than twenty years of experiment
and study in general practice and in the labora-
tory, the author has satisfied himself of facts,
which may seem astounding to the present
workers in the bacteriological field. That they
will come to his way of thinking after investi-
gating and experimenting along the lines on
which he has been working admit of no argu-
He has not made known his discoveries up
to the present time for fear that a half-
proven theory would only bring ridicule from
the profession, but now that he has proved
to himself without a doubt that he is abso-
lutely correct, and beyond a point where his
discoveries can be disproved, he is ready and
here gives his findings to the scientific world.
Progress in medicine, as in all branches of the
arts, is advanced more by the blunders made
and corrected than by original discoveries.
Evolution progresses in circles, and in its
journey if errors are observed and corrected,
and the original theory constantly improved, by
the time that it arrives at its starting point, it
is found to be on a higher plane. If its plane
is not elevated during its circuitous route it be-
To take stock of and to summarize all the
accepted facts of today, will show that with all
the study and work expended in the bacterio-
logical field it has not been raised to the elevated
plane that it should reach, owing to the fact
that scientists have often accepted too much as
their fundamental principles upon which to
base their experiments, involving errors from
the beginning that up to the present time have
not been corrected.
THE greatest mistake ever made, and what
was actually universally accepted by the
medical world as a truth, turns out to
be an error, the enormity of which can never
be equaled nor half appreciated. The damage
it has wrought in the human family will be
readily seen, and the correction should be made
without delay, for every hour places a black
mark against those who are the keepers of
the people's health.
Let us hold an autopsy on this error, which
will show itself to be an ignorant procedure
and an obsolete practice. Then let us bury
the mistake which is a privilege allowed the
This error was handed to us by Dr. Jenner
when he discovered a prophylactic for small-
pox. There never was, nor is there now, a
doubt that the inoculation of cowpox into the
human blood is a prophylactic against smallpox.
Why? We do not know. Is that a scientific
procedure? Has the germ of cowpox, or
vaccina, as it is called, been discovered? Has
the germ of smallpox been discovered? No.
Then we are still on the level of knowledge, in
this particular, with the savage and his herb.
Tradition is his teacher. He accomplishes what
he sets out to do — the reason why is unneces-
From writings we can only form a poor esti-
mate of what a scourge and pestilence the
dreaded disease of smallpox was, and today
we can safely say that, due to the inoculation
of the human family with cowpox, passing
through five generations, smallpox is practically
This was truly a blessing in disguise, for,
while it prevented smallpox, it scattered broad-
cast other diseases or sequelae which are today
a dread to all, as were the periodical epidemics
of smallpox in the beginning.
Vaccina is a widely different type of disease
from smallpox, the latter being an acute, self-
limiting, eruptive, contagious fever. It was dis-
covered that while the blood was poisoned with
one disease it was immune against the con-
tagion of another, when the etiology of neither
What Is Vaccina or Cowpox?
THE father of the "Great Discovery" of
vaccination observed that many persons
who lived on the western coast of England
were immune to smallpox, and when epidemics
infested those localities certain persons among
the working-class, although exposed, were ex-
empt from the disease.
That was the district of the dairy industry.
A disease was discovered among the cows that
manifested itself as a sore on the udders of the
cow and was circulated and reinfected among
the animals through the medium of the milk-
This disease developed on the hands of the
milkers and in many cases spread from their
hands to their mouths or to other parts of their
bodies where their uncleansed hands might in-
fect. This was a cow's disease, pure and
simple. Pure, because it was found on the
part of the cow from which the innocent milk
came, and the inference was that it was harm-
less as milk. No one died from this infection,
and the immediate manifestation disappeared,
leaving no visible injury.
What did develop later in these persons was
never connected with the primary inocula-
tion. Ailments that these persons might suffer
from later, found in other parts of the body,
could not with any common-sense reasoning
be traced back to the milkers* sores. Those
who milked cows in this part of the country
lived in the open and were a sturdy, healthy
class of people. The real battles their
phagocytes fought were never recorded.
While we are lauding the health of these
young men and women and how lightly this
serious infection was regarded by them, we
must trace the cause a little farther back and
not charge all this unknown result to the inno-
cent fountain of milk.
We must take note that, besides the dairy
industry in the country around the Bristol
Channel, this part of the country was the
center for shipping of the world and that
sailors and adventurers were dumped on this
soil after long voyages that took these men
into many ports, landing them here full of
adventures of all kinds, experience, and also
Hygiene was unknown, and dirty hands and
other things were not given much, if any, at-
tention. Here is where syphilis was spread.
The dairy maid did not tell her secrets,
but with all her troubles spit on her unclean
hands and went to milking. Is there any
wonder that the cows' udders were infected
and that innocent milkers were infected through
abrasions on their hands, etc.?
Is it not a fact without the possibility of a
doubt that vaccina or cowpox is syphilis inocu-
lated into the cow through human infection?
Dr. Jenner took this bovine syphilis and vac-
cinated the healthy baby and all who wished
to be fortified against the possible contagion
After twenty- two years of observation and
investigation the author states that no uncured
syphilitic can contract smallpox, and we all
know that those inoculated with bovine syphilis
are to a lesser degree immune.
With this modified form of syphilis in their
blood and tissues smallpox would, if it should
develop, appear in a strikingly milder form.
When a person contracts syphilis in the
recognized way, with the memories of terrible
tales told of this most loathsome disease, to-
gether with a guilty conscience, is it a wonder
that fear besets them?
In this nervous condition and with possibly
lowered vitality from often repeated debauches
the victim secures the services of a doctor.
The wise doctor knows that mercury is the
specific remedy that will kill the cause, so the
patient is forthwith mercurialized.
The patient is between two fires, and we
will leave it to the therapeutist to determine
which fire is signaling to him in later years.
We forget to fortify nature's weapons and
to use our mercury physiologically, reserving
it as a remedy to keep the blood constituents
in normal proportion. Blood-counts are the
mile-posts for the exhibition of mercury.
These facts are only mentioned to call your
attention to what nature's own method of cure
can accomplish and why those who are vac-
cinated with cowpox, while in perfect health,
are delighted with the initial lesion that de-
velops on their arm. They are told with all
assurance that it has taken and that they are
No treatment is ever instituted after vac-
cination to purify the blood, which is just as
reasonable after one initial lesion as the other.
Nature combats all diseases, and it is only
when it falls short that the doctor pieces it
out with his remedies.
This tragedy of vaccination makes Shakes-
peare's "Hamlet" a tame tale.
For 1 25 years the human race has inocu-
lated itself and babes in arms with syphilis,
thank God for the modification, but syphilis
just the same. This poison it has never tried
to cure or eradicate from the system, and for
fear that the strength might leave the tissues,
revaccination is again resorted to.
The skeptical and the dutiful followers of
science who do not think or experiment for
themselves, but store away in their brains as
facts and truth whatever they happen to hear,
may doubt these statements and will want to
have proofs that this harmless vaccination (?)
has any sequelae.
In closing this story, which is truly a tragedy,
the author will devote a chapter later to prove
that sequelae follow vaccina.
In doing this, a picture of the bacteriological
errors will be presented for inspection. With
errors corrected and missing links supplied the
chain will be complete, and a correct classi-
fication of diseases will be made, which at
present are scattered around in the fog of
mystery and ignorance.
Many investigators in this department of
medicine have taken up the work where their
predecessors ceased and, while in error, won-
der why they cannot make greater haste in their
obscured mysterious field.
Vaccina Is Syphilis of the Cow.
NOTES taken from cases beginning 1889.
The summary of the findings from these
notes here follows:
Every reader, if he doubts, will have a start-
ing point for investigation for himself.
Question I. Why will a person who has
syphilis (uncured) not contract smallpox?
Question II. Why will a person who has
had syphilis not "take," as it is called, when
vaccinated with vaccina or cowpox?
Question III. Why will a person recently
vaccinated not contract the initial lesion of
syphilis when liberally exposed, not previously
even having had a venereal disease?
History of a case: Two men kept company
with a woman who afterward was found to
have contracted syphilis from an outside source.
One of these men did not contract the disease,
but the other did, both repeatedly exposing
themselves to the infection, up to the time the
secondary showed on the woman. Both men
were veterans of the Spanish War and were
thoroughly vaccinated. The one who got the
initial lesion suffered from a chancre in an ex-
ceedingly mild form, which disappeared in 20
days without any treatment, and under con-
stant observation for 2 years no secondary
symptom ever developed. This was in 1899.
The woman took treatment for 7 months
after the secondary symptoms showed them-
selves. She died of cancer of the uterus in
1910. Both men, who were perfectly healthy
in 1899, were suffering from tuberculosis in
Question IV. Why, if one half of the chil-
dren of a family be vaccinated with vaccina,
will only those who were vaccinated develop
diphtheria when an epidemic of tonsillitis at-
tacks the family?
History of a case: The author will relate
this case, the one that started him in his in-
vestigation and study on this subject. June
1 5th, 1 889, the author was spending his vaca-
tion on the ranch of a wealthy farmer in the
northern part of the state of California, fifteen
miles from the nearest town, a farm of 10,000
acres and no immediate neighbors. The farmer
had a wife and seven children. The foreman,
a negro, had a wife and five children. None
had ever been vaccinated. Six of them were
selected and vaccinated by the author:
The farmer's wife, age 43 years.
The farmer's daughter, age 6 years.
The farmer's son, age 8 years.
The farmer's son, age 25 years.
The negro foreman, age 46 years.
His son, age 1 2 years.
All the rest were left out and were not
August 1st, 1890, the farmer, his wife, and
five children went to the mountain ranch forty
miles away, taking with them the foreman,
his wife, and five children. There had been
no diphtheria in the town nor any in their
neighborhood. The mountain ranch was an
uninhabited virgin pine forest district with pure
water, where they took up their camp.
August 24th an epidemic of sore throat and
canker sores developed among the children.
Farmer's daughter, seven years old, son, nine
years old, and foreman's son, thirteen years
old, developed very serious throat and consti-
tutional symptoms and were taken to the home
ranch, from where a doctor was sent for.
Diphtheria was the diagnosis. The farmer's
wife also developed diphtheria. All the rest
who had not been vaccinated cured rapidly of
their sore throats. The farmer's daughter,
seven years old, died. The farmer's son, nine
years old, did not recuperate for one year. The
farmer's wife, 44 years old, had paralysis and
sequelae which lasted over one year. The
foreman's son, thirteen years old, became very
weak and did not return to normal health.
The treatment used by the doctor who was
in constant attendance was: Tr. Ferri Chloride,
Insufflations of Sulphur and Calomel; afterward
Syr. Ferri Iodidi and Kali Iodidi.
In 1893, the farmer's son, 29 years old, died
in Los Angeles, Cal., of tubercular intestinal
trouble; in 1900, the foreman, at 57 years of
age, died of tubercle or cancer of larynx; in
1902, the foreman's son, 25 years old, died
of tuberculosis; in 1909, the farmer's wife,
63 years old, died of cancer; in 1911, the
farmer's son, 30 years old, died of tubercular
The farmer died of old age. All the rest
are living and in perfect health, nor have they
ever been vaccinated. No tuberculosis has
shown in any of those living, nor is there any
family history of tuberculosis. All who were
vaccinated in 1 889 are now dead.
Mrs. A. of Mendocino County had 1 2 chil-
dren. In 1 888 was in Ukiah with her children.
Had six of the younger ones vaccinated. In
1889 her whole family developed sore throats.
The six who were vaccinated all died within
one week of diphtheria.
After sufficient observations, the author when
called to a case of sore throat, tonsillitis,
pharyngitis, laryngitis, croup, or quinsy, made
it a rule to ask if the patient had been vac-
cinated and examined the scar. The rule that
he adopted in his practice was "diphtheria
cannot be diagnosed or found in the patient
who has not been previously vaccinated."
Question V. Why will the Wassermann
and Noguchi tests show positive in persons
recently vaccinated who have never contracted
syphilis nor inherited it?
Question VI. Why will diphtheria antitoxin
control syphilitic lesions, especially secondary
Question VII. Why is mercury a specific in
Question VIII. Why is leprosy a plague in
the Hawaiian Islands, which has developed so
since sailors imported syphilis there?
With climatic conditions and virgin healthy
susceptible tissues, soon the entire country was
inoculated. Syphilitic parents on both sides
propagated children with inherited syphilis.
Leprosy has been called syphilis in its fourth
stage. Dr. Fitch claimed that this was the case
and that in this tissue, with climatic influence,
the disease of syphilis ran a more rapid and
varying course with a fourth stage: Leprosy.
History of a case: In 1890, father, mother,
and two children were all vaccinated. No pre-
vious vaccination nor history of syphilis ac-
quired; inherited no tuberculosis. Mother mis-
carried two months later. The next child, born
fourteen months later, was markedly scrofu-
lous, and the child born two years after this
was also scrofulous. The first two children of
this family are still alive, and the last two
have died of tuberculosis.
The mother developed cancer two years ago
and died. The father, who is alive, developed
psoriasis. Three intravenous injections of sal-
varsan caused marked improvement, when all
previous treatment had no effect.
The author will now take up the bacterio-
logical part of this subject. When first brought
to the investigator's notice, it will cause doubt,
wonder, then investigation, and lastly the truth,
universally accepted, which the author prays
will not be further delayed.
Diphtheria and Tuberculosis Are Stages of
Modified or Bovine Syphilis.
IN the Dark Ages of Medicine, when Dr.
Jenner showed a candle light for the moths
of science to singe their wings, it was dis-
covered that the inoculation of one disease
produced the immunity against the infection of
another disease widely and pathologically dif-
ferent. The etiology of neither being known,
syphilis, a chronic blood disease remaining
through the entire life of the patient, appear-
ing in four separate stages, and manifesting
itself pathologically in an endless number of
ways in every imaginable form that a devia-
tion of healthy tissue can show itself, is inocu-
lated in its modified form, vaccina, into the
human family to prevent the possible contagion
of an acute, self-limiting fever. This fever is
highly contagious, while the disease inoculated
is only infectious, not contagious, and only
transmitted through a scratch or abrasion di-
rectly producing a culture in the blood of the
Why should the presence of one disease for-
tify the blood against another widely different
in every respect — one an incurable or uncured
chronic inheritable malady with the largest
assortment of sequelae, the other a self -limit-
ing fever without a single sequela? Why?
Neither Jenner, nor anyone else today, can
answer this freak truth in nature.
The author will state some facts, of which
he has already satisfied himself, and he asks
you to start at the beginning and disprove his
assertions if your investigations and experi-
ments can do so. To make any headway in
bacteriological science one must throw out the
errors that have been nursed into what looks
like a fully accepted theory, for whatever way
one tries to utilize the false theory, it will not
work out with any scientific correctness.
The specific form of contagion of smallpox
has never been discovered. For the present we
will drop this disease from our consideration,
as it has nothing to do with, or is it in the
class with, those that follow.
The specific bacteria of syphilis is still miss-
ing and also the bacteria of vaccina or cowpox.
The specific bacteria, the cause of the follow-
ing so-called diseases, still remain undiscovered:
Only those are mentioned that have direct
relation to the subject.
Syphilis, vaccina, diphtheria, tuberculosis,
and leprosy, all have a bacillus that is given
the credit of being the cause. The true spe-
cific germ that is the cause of these conditions,
including cancer, still remains undiscovered.
When this disease, syphilis, is subdivided
into its stages, sequelae, and varied manifesta-
tions, it will be left to the bacteriologists to dis-
cover the real culprit, to which there is a sub-
Bacilli Are Nature's Scavengers and Not the
Causes of Any Diseases.
BACILLI are the product and not the cause
of any disease.
The specific bacteria that cause the dis-
eases, which up to the present time are not dis-
covered, will be found when bacteriological
technic is improved and the magnifying power
of microscopes is increased, so that germs that
cannot now be seen will be plainly discerned
The makers of microscopes have been satis-
fied with supplying the demand. The inventors
in this mechanical department have shown
themselves to be exceedingly unprogressive.
The word "CAN'T," which is not in the vo-
cabulary of mechanical nomenclature in the
present era, is hewed out in letters of stone and
hung around the necks of microscopical manu-
Who will be the inventor of an improved
modern microscope wherein the proper ratio of
multiplication of light power will be produced
to sustain increased magnifying power; with
motion photographs taken, which will be again
enlarged in throwing them upon a screen, until
we shall be able to see motion photograph
plays with bacteria, at present undiscovered,
which will play the principal roles in the dramas
produced when the bacteria X. Y. Z. will be
in the A. B. C. class with the bacteriologist.
Sections will then be made of the bacilli, and
the specific bacteria that they carry and propa-
gate within their bodies will be individually
studied and properly classified.
What is a bacillus? A rod-shaped organism
found only where there is dead tissue and de-
composition. To claim that a bacillus is the
cause of a disease, that it is the specific bac-
teria producing a special disease, is prepos-
terous. Bacilli can be grown in cultures, and
if taken from a particular disease, will at the
same time that they are propagated breed the
particular undiscovered bacteria, with which
their bodies are infected and which is the true
cause of the disease; and this is why, if these
cultures are inoculated, the original disease will
be reproduced in healthy tissue. Bacilli are
found everywhere in every kind of dead and
decomposed organic matter.
The diseases that are claimed up to the
present time to be produced by a bacillus are
only the pathological conditions that develop
dead tissue and that cannot be absorbed or
eliminated, with the result of decomposition
and the presence of bacilli. The true bacteria
undiscovered, this microscopical maggot was
naturally accepted as the cause.
Bacilli are only found in the manifestations
of a disease, and if they appear to cause a
condition it is only that their bodies are in-
fected with the true bacteria. The reason why
great, new discoveries are periodically heralded
and tried for the cure of these diseases, of
which the bacillus is given as a cause, and
with the same results of nothing accomplished,
is because a cure or preventive is sadly needed.
This all proves that the true cause of the dis-
ease has not been found, and until it is, guess-
ing and trying every foolish conceivable thing
will go on. Turtles, lizards, and snakes will
get into our pharmacopea, and we may soon
find ourselves in the same dark pit of medical
superstition into which Chinese medicine has
Not to wander too far from the original
subject and reach out into wilds as unex-
plored as the special subject we are discuss-
ing, we will limit ourselves to that patho-
logical branch of which syphilis is the parent.
When the head waters are found, it will be
easy drifting down the stream, picking up the
true classification and treatment. "Exact
knowledge of the truth," is the boat we can all
be carried in. It can safely be accepted that
where we have a bacillus that is thought to
be the specific bacterium of a disease, we can
be sure that the true bacterium has not been
found. A list of bacilli found will here be
given so that you can see that the author is
correct in his assertion that bacilli are only
products found in decayed organic matter.
Spirillum belongs to this class.
(See Appendix for list of Bacilli and Spirilli.)
Are they not the flies and maggots of bac-
teriology and no more the cause of a disease
than is a fly? They undoubtedly carry the
true causative germ on and in their bodies,
and are really the scavengers of diseased tissue.
Taking up separately the conditions that
descend from the parent cause, we see now
how the microscopist has up to the present
time, unnoticed and unknowingly, really class-
ified this disease, compelled by the bacilli found,
into the group of diseases and sequelae, as
Lustgarten's Bacillus of Syphilis:
Similar in all respects with the Tubercular
Bacillus, discovered in 1884.
Van Niessen's Bacillus of Syphilis:
Resembled in every way the Klebs-Loeffler
Bacillus of Diphtheria and vaccina, discovered
Klein in 1892 discovered a bacillus for vac-
cina, and in 1899 Van Niessen discovered his
bacillus of syphilis, which was identical.
Klebs and Loeffler discovered the bacillus of
diphtheria; in 1899 Van Niessen discovered that
the Klebs-Loeffler bacillus was identical with
his bacillus of syphilis and Klein's bacillus of
Koch in 1882 discovered the bacillus of
tuberculosis. It was found to resemble Han-
sen's bacillus of leprosy, discovered by Hansen
in 1 87 1 ; it resembled the Klebs-Loeffler bacil-
lus of diphtheria, and also was similar to Lust-
garten's bacillus of syphilis.
Hansen in 1871 discovered a bacillus of
leprosy, and when Koch discovered the tuber-
cular bacillus, it was found to be similar.
No one claims a bacillus for cancer in any
of its forms, but just the same the true germ,
not a bacillus, is present, as in all of the stages
of this pathological disorder. The reason why
page thirty- three
a bacillus has not been found in this malady
is because this stage takes on a different form
than death and decay of tissue, as it shows
itself in increased circulation and growth and
rapid proliferation of cells. This is another
strong proof against the theory that bacilli are
the cause of any diseased condition.
The true germ is present, but the bacillus
cannot live in this manifestation. If we had
the protecting work of the scavenger, "The
Bacillus,* * here, results might not be so malig-
nant. Bacilli encompass the true bacteria when
found in the pathological manifestation. There-
fore cultures of the bacilli do produce unob-
served cultures of the specific bacteria, and
hence antitoxin serums and vaccine bacterins
possess the specific power that is claimed for
them, and hence any successful results.
Antitoxin of diphtheria, typhoid vaccine,
bacterins, etc., which possess positive wonder-
ful results, are all examples of the above state-
The culture of bacilli is unsatisfactory in
many cases, due to their being deprived of
page thirty- four
their true source of nourishment, which is rot-
ten, decomposed matter. It is only when the
culture medium becomes decomposed that one
can with any degree of success produce a cul-
The bacilli are all practically in the same class
with the varying changes of shape and habit
as we expect to find in any biological species.
The different methods required to cultivate
different colonies, the varying colors, and after-
ward the separate staining processes necessary,
are all due to the different bacteria that they
are mixed with, taking on changed properties
and idiosyncrasies in accordance with the spe-
cial diseased germ which they have in and
around their bodies.
Do we examine the great circulating fluids
of the body and find bacilli, when we
know that the body is infected with a disease
and the specific bacteria are positively travel-
ing through the circulation and are in all the
living tissues? No. We look for and find the
misleading bacillus only in the broken-down
dead tissue, which is the pathological manifesta-
tion of a disease of that class.
Enough has been said to satisfy the best in-
formed, who will require little time to prove
to themselves that the author's statements are
Bacteria X. Y. Z.
THESE bacteria X. Y. Z. are very small,
and widely different from other disease-
producing germs. They have not been
recognized, due to their size and different prop-
erties, and due also to other reasons, later to
For the present the author gives this bac-
terium the name Bacterium X. Y. Z.
This germ is the cause of the following dis-
Vaccina or Cowpox > X
This same bacterium in X. Y. and Z. and
perhaps in many more stages of development
takes on specific producing power of like pro-
ducing like in the evolutionary stage in which
the germ is found and reinoculated. This same
germ produces diphtheria when taken from
diphtheria product, or tuberculosis if taken
from tuberculosis manifestations, etc.
If the cause or specific bacterium is the same
in all the above-named pathological demonstra-
tions, then these names are only given to stages
and sequelae of the one primal disease,
SYPHILIS. The advent of the disease appears
on the body at the point of infection, and is
accepted as the initial lesion or chancre appear-
ing after the specific germ has saturated the
body fluids. It is the sore in vaccina and is the
same slightly modified in vaccination. The
other steps follow according to the condition,
idiosyncrasies, and combative power of the pro-
tective forces of each individual and the effect-
iveness of treatment if administered.
Considering each stage separately the author
will endeavor to convince you to his way of
thinking that the one disease shows itself in
various phases caused by this specific germ.
Accepting that this bacterium in growing older
and maturing passes through various phases
and changes in its existence, as we see in ani-
mal life everywhere — as the tadpole changes
to the frog, the caterpillar to the butterfly, the
egg and its evolution, the infant and man —
all passing through various stages and phases,
so also the bacteria X. Y. Z. produce upon
inoculation the manifestations according to the
stage they happen to be in at the time of in-
We do know that its strongest character-
istic is its infectiousness in its earliest age, se-
lecting its life dwelling place. Transplanting into
healthy tissue occurs in all its stages, but not
so common or with the degree of ease as in
its earlier age.
If the chancre of humans is inoculated from
human to human we expect to see secondary
symptoms following shortly. If modified, as
in inoculation of cow syphilis, this rule is a
little changed, secondary following immediately,
markedly milder or masked. The next symp-
toms are demonstrated in the throat if the germ
is ripe and virulent in the economy and the
throat is in an abnormal condition at this time
with pharyngitis and stomach disorders or ton-
sillitis and if the field is prepared for pathologi-
cal demonstration then diphtheria is manifested.
As children have not been exposed to infec-
tion from human syphilis, the germ is inocu-
lated through vaccination of cow syphilis. Tak-
ing in a modified form it is nevertheless the
original germ, which when put into the child's
blood remains there for life with no effort ever
made to treat the little victim with mercury and
other antisyphilitic remedies.
The antitoxin comes in now as the accepted
specific remedy for treatment, which is the true
antitoxin of bacteria X., and which is propagated
along with their carriers, the bacilli Klebs-
LoefHer, and in this misunderstood, rough way
the good work has been achieved, previous to
the discovery of the true bacteria.
Patients with diphtheria who survive after a
thorough treatment with .diphtheria antitoxin are
also very probably cured of modified syphilis with
which the blood was infected.
The next manifestation we have of syphilis
or cow syphilis is tuberculosis. Since vaccination
of vaccina, this germ has been sown and inocu-
lated broadcast, so compelled by cruel, ignorant
laws, and the cure will never be achieved so
long as the cause is present.
We have the tertiary forms of syphilis follow-
ing more from direct human inoculation than
from the bovine modification — then the inherited
forms where one and where both parents are
affected, coming before us in the form of scrof-
ula and leprosy.
Since carcinoma and sarcoma are included in
this classification, mention of them must be made
here, but until bacteria X. Y. Z. are actually
placed in the A. B. C. role, we will not be able
to definitely describe these forms.
These tumors take on a different aspect. They
are growing bodies with rapid cell proliferation,
increased blood supply, becoming heterogeneous,
and abnormal exuberant growths, when open
suppurating and throwing their live cells off so
rapidly that there is no opportunity for proper
decomposition, so as to harbor a bacillus as a
supposed cause. So, even with the multitude
of bacilli, not one of them can adopt the cancer;
however, the bacteria Z. is there.
While the bacillus has been looked upon as the
cause and enemy in these pathological manifesta-
tions, we may find that this bacillus after all, is
the true friend, and an adjunct to nature placed
there to hold the true pathogenic germ under
subjection. Imprisoned in their bodies until
thrown off by the economy with the dead tissue
and suppuration, they take up the work where
the phagocytes fall short.
The non-pathogenic bacilli, as the prodigiosus
and lacto-bacillus, we know, when thrown into
the body alive, accomplish wonderful results in a
cure because of their strong property of devour-
ing true disease germs. So when we find bacilli
in a manifestation of a disease associated with
them, we are sure to find the true cause.
We therefore must surely have in the pure
cultures of non-pathogenic bacilli a curative
agent, which the author will give later on when
he has completed his experiments along that line.
Non-pathogenic bacilli will be thrown into the
circulation at the height of diseases, such as scar-
latina, measles, smallpox and other cases of acute,
self-limiting, contagious fevers where we cannot
definitely find a germ. They will take up the
true germ, after which the bacillus can be recap-
tured. Then cultures will be made from these,
making it possible to make the vaccine bacterins,
antitoxin, etc., for these diseases, which has been
thought impossible up to now, for the specific
bacteria could not be found to work with. We
will then have a scientific and mathematically
correct immunizing agent and cure.
Substitute for Cowpox Vaccination.
IN 1892 a commission was named by Great
Britain to ascertain what vaccina was. The
investigation was taken up by the prominent
bacteriologists, and it was then that Klein dis-
covered his bacillus of vaccina. Still no germ
for smallpox, nor has it been found up to the
present time. The British Commission en-
deavored to find the relation of vaccina to small-
pox, and the more they worked the farther apart
the two different pathological disorders drifted,
until it was decided that they were in no way
similar nor in the same class.
Dr. W. J. Simpson at that time settled the
erroneous theory that vaccina was smallpox in
the cow. He found that smallpox positively was
not vaccina or cowpox.
He inoculated cows with smallpox and carried
it through four generations of the cow, and when
this was revaccinated into the human blood it
produced smallpox. These findings were final,
and vaccina was accepted as a separate disease
with very little known about it, with the Klein
bacillus to lend a scientific dignity to it. If the
anti-vaccination advocates had known the facts
set forth in this article, it would have been a dis-
carded practice long ago.
They knew something was wrong, but they
did not know what it was. The reason why anti-
vaccination has always failed is because its advo-
cates did not have a single fact of the truth to
back up their arguments. They wished to take
away something tangible, this great safeguard
to public health, as it has unfortunately been
looked upon, without offering a substitute or
improvement to take its place.
The author supplies the substitute. The old
poisoned arrow is to be thrown away and the
new automatic weapon will be found accurate
to place in the gap and guard public health
against the foe, smallpox, without injury to the
man behind the gun.
We know what antitoxins are and how to
immunize the blood with the disease itself with-
out infecting with the disease. So we must
simply immunize the human subject with the
antitoxin of smallpox itself, and that is the whole
story. The fear of spreading the disease from
the laboratories is the reason that this has never
Vaccine bacterins is another method of im-
munizing and has not been attempted because
the germ of smallpox was not in evidence and
no cultures could be made of an unknown germ.
This is easily done, now that the author has
demonstrated what bacilli are; for we simply
make a bacillus of smallpox by mixing the blood
of the smallpox patient at the height of a fever
with a non-pathogenic bacillus (Bacillus pro-
digiosus). This bacillus goes in and performs its
duty and soon is filled with the smallpox germ
and becomes the artificially made bacillus of
smallpox. Cultures of these will grow, and our
vaccine bacterins of smallpox will be put on
Immunizing against smallpox will be done as
immunizing against typhoid fever is now being
successfully practiced, although the typhoid germ
is still not found, but the bacillus typhoid is really
artificially made in the intestines of the patient
with that disease.
The manufacturers of antitoxins and vaccine
bacterins should not be expected to make this
product for fear of spreading smallpox. The
author asked them to do it some years ago, and
he got a refusal. He had to carry on these ex-
periments in his laboratory under great diffi-
culties. He succeeded in producing an antitoxine
which he called "Smallpox Immunizing Serum."
The government will handle this product, find-
ing many volunteers among the best scientific
men necessary to carry on the work, who will
place in the hands of the public a sterile, non-
infecting package, which will be harmless but
more strongly preventive than the cruel, horrible
practice that has accomplished nothing, when
put in the balance with the suffering it has
While we have under consideration the arti-
ficially produced antitoxin and the harnessing of
our friend, the bacillus, the author will make
mention of the possible cure for tuberculosis,
accepting the theory of the true mission of the
bacillus, that it is a product and curative agent
and not a cause; and that is to cause the live
bacillus laden with bacteria Y. to be thrown in
large quantities into the blood of a cold-blooded
animal, one whose blood will not propagate the
true bacteria Y. of the tubercular stage and at
the same time will not kill the bacillus, its carrier.
An idea might be mentioned here that pul-
monary tuberculosis patients, who reduce the
proportion of heat and moisture inhaled, do im-
prove. The continued outdoor life through a
frigid winter shows that cold is not conducive to
the bacteria Y. in this stage and if that infinitesi-
mal exhibition of cold will accomplish such visible
destruction of this, what will happen in the cold-
blooded animal, the turtle, which is long lived
with strong resistance, slow circulation, and liv-
ing comfortably in ice water? The demonstra-
tion will be many times multiplied.
The bacillus in its temporary abode loses its
pathogenicity, and when this live bacillus is again
injected into a tubercular patient like a vacuum,
it hungrily and rapidly devours the meal,
bacteria Y., which is its regular diet. Enough
of these starved live bacilli thrown into the blood
of a tubercular patient, at regular intervals, may
soon cleanse the tissue and fluids of the true germ
of the tuberculosis stage. The author is en-
deavoring to produce a culture which he calls
"Anti Tubercular Vaccine."
That conclusive proofs have been produced
and the facts of the unquestionable truth demon-
strated. He places his findings on the altar of
Who can deny his assertions and the evi-
dence submitted, evidence which was actually
made and which has herein been submitted, in the
great discoveries of the greatest authorities of
bacteriological study, covering the past thirty-
This evidence in this case of the greatest crime
known to the world is sufficient to seal the death
warrant of, execute, and bury the old criminal
"VACCINATION OF COWPOX."
If there is left a small minority of adherents
to this old habit they will have to be considered
as accomplices hereafter. A guilty conscience
and condemnation to the bottomless pit of igno-
rance is the punishment they will receive from
the true scientists and the unfortunate laymen —
men who will stand out with the strength of
public opinion and legislation, if need be, to
protect their little children and the future unborn,
to whom we owe our greatest duty. They must
be left a legacy of health, good government, and
the means to live and enjoy their short stay. As
path finders and pioneers of this world, we must
show them the road leading to the truth.

A complete list of Bacilli can not be submitted as Bacteriologists are
daily increasing the number. Wherever decomposed matter is found, a
bacillus can be discovered.
They vary in appearance according to the conditions surrounding, the
varying elements of the matter, etc., all of which cause difference in
size, disposition, qualities and properties.
The Spirochoeta pallida is not considered by the Author as the cause
of Syphilis — Anaemia, with an undetermined Bacteria present in the
blood, is the cause of its presence. It is one of nature's assistants and
its office is similar to all Bacilli — or Sperrillae.
In Relapsing fever and other diseases where blood properties are defi-
cient the Spirochoeta is found.
Questions will be answered and Proofs furnished by the Author to
those who will address their communications to him.
