The meeting was held in Lancaster and All the councils of surrounding districts including Harrisburg York and Hanover were present. The visitors were entertained at a banquet Given at the new Brunswick hotel. Chairman of the u. S. Shipping Board a. D. Lasker is a Man of Many parts and a Man of action Bis recent order that he be furnished with newly made and Complete inventories Cfall property belonging to the emergency Fleet indicates that he wishes to he thoroughly con errant we a present conditions been he o. Ivs any proposition for Hie disposition of government proper t \. Hie orders of the new chairman Means that an additional inventory of Fleet material at the Yard at North Bristol will have to be furnished Ami this Means that there will be several weeks work provided for a Nimby r of clerks and stenographers attending to the detail work in compiling the desired statement. The action of the local Fleet officials in giving the army of local unemployed an Opportunity to pick up Iii few weeks work is indeed to be commended. When the order went through two slips were written out one being pasted in Tracy and bakery a window and the other in the window of the Independent. They had the desired effect for yesterday morning at least three thousand Young men and women were on hand looking for work. In speaking of the flocks who presented themselves one official stated i had no idea that there were so Many stenographers in Bristol As there Are until i saw that sea of laces in the gathered throng seeking employment. It proves to us one thing that if work is Ever resumed in the Plant there will be no necessity in us going outside of Bristol to Complete our roster of cowardly attempt to disable launch Arrow thursday morning while Captain Jackson was Enro Ute to Bridesburg to bring a picnic party to Burlington Island Park the valves of the engine of his launch Quot Arrow Quot suddenly stopped in Midstream. Investigation cd tin cause revealed that eight spark plugs of thei engine had been tampered with during the night while the boat Lay it the Bristol wharf. Fortunately Captain Jackson soon remedied the trouble arriving in time to meet his party. This malicious piece of work was the second attempt to put the launch Quot Arrow Quot out of commission and tile owners have begun an investigation which coupled with a Reward. May Lead to the arrest of the culprits who if round will be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law. If this question has been asked the editor of this paper once it has been asked him two Hundred times at the very least estimate within the past two weeks. Sorry indeed is the writer that it cannot be answered and answered As these solicitous folks would like to have it a the will be rile Fate of this Man who has so Many ardent friends and supporters in this Vicinity now rests with the trial judge and with the jury who will hear the testimony in his Case. One would have to be a Reader of the future a seer into the unknown to be Able to answer what the decision of these two elements will be. Every Day new evidence of what Good in the Community Martindell is doing is being brought to Light tales Are carried to this office of seaming miraculous Relief he has Given some previously despairing person. Sufferers who for years have carried the Burden of physical disability or infirmity Are suddenly made Well. Men who have almost despaired of Ever again being Able to their Ordinary occupation again take their place a at the Side of their former working companions. Alen who have resigned themselves to an Early death take up the Battle of life with renewed Hope renewed vigor anti Lay in the far background of their minds the fear or the belief that their years Are numbered. Surely it would be a shame if tit the face of Ali this overwhelming evidence the verdict of a jury made it impossible for this Man to continue to do Good in this Community. Public sentiment it would seem would be ignored if this were the result of the coming trial yet trials Are not decided by Public sentiment and the statutes of the state Are All that guide the judge on the Bench and All that he will allow to guide the jury. All the foregoing and the Law itself leaves the answer to the question which opens this article problem metical Martindell May be convicted and his conviction May carry with it a jail sentence he May Only receive a nominal Fine in Case the jury decides against him this part of the proceedings who be discretionary with the court. Then again there is a possibility that he May be acquitted and if he is a moral Victory for the Many he has aided will have been won. In the face of an acquittal it is not Likely that another Case would be prepared against him by the state Board of lice sure and the chances Are that if acquitted he will continue in this Community doing Good to the Many As he has in the past. What the future plans of Martindell will be if he is found guilty the writer has no Means of knowing. This much is probably a certainty that Iii a very Short time a condition will be provided by state legislation that will make it possible for a fully qualified practitioner of chiropractic to practise his philosophy without being in constant fear of the minions of the Law. The Allopathy and homeopaths years ago were at swords Points then when they had buried Hie Hatchet and Laid Down together like the proverbial Hon and the Lamb along came the osteopaths and they were fought to the last ditch until finally they were granted recognition by the authorities of the several states the above is not a statement of this newspaper it is a matter of Public history. The optometrists were opposed As Long As opposition hampered them in performing their work but now they Are recognized. With All this As a matter of record it is Safe to presume that Iii the very near future chiropractic and chiropractors will be removed from the outlawed state in which now they Are alleged to function and be a regularly recognized and legally licensed profession.
