    Condemns the 'modified snake-bite' being produced by 'Dr. Koch and the Kochites' and questions whether 'the art of inventing a new disease or series of diseases in order to cure or prevent this disease which seems to occur spontaneously is a true and useful art in its application to medicine'. Insists that 'innoculation is bad sanitation'.
