whon wo assifmo by law to sny that

Following artlclo Is from Medical
Talk for Novembor.
Jn "Modorn Modlcnl Sclonco," of
August, ocourn (n Intcrostlnc nc
count of an attempt to gather some
facta, concerning vaccination. It
seems that tho abovo medical Journal,
'wishing to obtain something besldos
Micro assertion, tried ta dinw out some
of tho most omlnont authorities in
tlio Stato of Mnssach ibuUb what thoy
know about vooolno virus. Thoy pro
cured tho consent of a mombur of tho
board of health, of Philadelphia,
flomo months ago, to write nn nrllclo
on vnaclnntlon, giving his masons
for bollvlng it to bo n protection
Aftor waiting some months for tho
nrtolo, nnd it did not como, Mr. J.
11. Groene, of Doston, mude an offort
to got at the snmo fnots in another
way. He nddrussed soino questions
lo aniluunt medical gontlemen of
Massachusetts, fourteen In number.
Only two of theso onilnent gentle
mon answered tho loiter nt all, an J
ono of thoao mado no nttompt to nns
wor tlio questions asked. Tho only
rcnrUnliiR ono dodged around Mid
contented himself by tnlklng on some
elilo question. The questions wore
fair one, and ought to bo nnswerod.
Tho people hnvo a light to know what
it la dootors inject Into their systems
by force. Thoso omlnont gentlsmon
ought to be obliged to make a rational
answer to the questloi a. They hav
not done so, and fur special reasons
they will not do so until compelled to
by some liliher authorities. Thu
questions were ns follews:
First. What Is the original soure
or sources of the so-called vaccine
lymphs, now used in Massachusetts?
Second Did not Dr. Martin, of
Attleboro, Mnw Inoculate n cow's
uddor with smallpox matter, nnd
by inoculating children with the vlru i
thus cnuso an opldemlc of smallpox
with fatal results? Did not similar ex
periments of Chauvenu, in France,
and othors. havo the soma rosult?
Third. Aro not the ohnraotoristlos
of tho vaccine sore tho same us thoso
or syphilis, and entiroly different
from smallpox pustules? In other
words, Is not cowpox really syphilis
of tho oow.
Fourth. Is it not a fast that the
cood of syphilis, cattear. and some
other dlsoasw, cannot be detected
when present in vaccine virus, by any
means known to sclonco, and
not syphilis been transmitted by arm
to arm vaccination as In tho caso of
Dr. Cory, of England? Inasmuch,
thon, as ono modorn method of pro
ducing vaccine lymph Is to lnoculnto
tho first animal of a series with human
smallpox virus, what ground can exist
for tho claim that it is impossible for
syphlllB to be convoyed In a lymph
According to our view thoso aro
very fair questions, and ought to bo
answered. Tho state has a no right
to compol peoplo to submit to vacci
nation and then refuse to answer such
Tho facts aro, that no ono, excopt
tho manufacturers themselves, has
any specific knowlodgo as to how
vaclno virus Is produced. Each manu
facturer of vaclno virus knows what
he inoculates tho cow with to produce
this virus. Each ono knows for him
self, and ho Is tho only ono that does
know. It Is oxnetly like- the manu
facturer of patont medicines. No
one but tho manufacturer knows the
formula. Ecch ono of thoso who make
vaclno virus has a process which tho
othors do not know of. Tho doctors
who uso this vaclno lymph know
nothing whatever as to how It lo
All that Is known about It Is, that
tho cow Is poisoned with something or
other, and this poison cnusos sores to
appear on the cow's udder and teats.
From thoso soros Is oxtrnctcd this
stuff known as vacclno virus. This
vncclno virus is punctured Into tho
flesh of tho people. What It Is tho
