Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same SLS Osteopath Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
that which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path-
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely different.
One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic ia ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor-
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.

Britain and Russia over the language^^T
of the article in the North sea conven-""
tion relative to the question of respon-_
sibility. At the foreign office it is said
that Russia does not desire to in any

of the language submitted in the Eng

of the question whether torpedo boats
were off the Dogger bank and whethei
in. any event the Russian ships were

Bridge and Butler Aspinall, an admi
ralty court lawyer, who were appoint

port will form the basis of the r^misn
case before the international cuiumis
sion at Paris, sat at a large table sur
rounded by maps showing the Logger
bank and the North sea. In front was
an array ot counsel and government
The correspondent of the Associated
Press learned at the outset that the
board of trade solicitors who have
been preparing the case have lound
no, evidence to suggest the presence
of the torpedo boats among the fishing
fleet. The inquiry will therefore meie
ly be an amplification of the evidence
at the inquest and it will be adjourned
to London in the course of a few da s,
the proceedings here being confined to
a narrative of the shooting. The as
sessment of damages, which will be
dealt with in London, cannot be com
pleted for some time, as many of the
trawlers are still at sea. The findings
of the court will be sent to the laoaid
of trade and wfll be submitted to the
international cc-i 3sion.
Admiral Biu0 parted matters with
businesslike piom: tness, briefly an
nouncing the mcih.jd of procedure and
stating thai .vill be no speeches.
Various coi... presenting the traw
companies uw ihe victims received
permission to examine- the witnesses
and Mr. Pickford, counsel tor the boaid
of trade, summarized, the facts con
nected with the "lamented occurrence,"
saying there was nothing connected
with the trawling fleet which could pos
sibly account for the shooting.
The witnesses all denied that any
arms, ammunition or contraband were
on board the trawlers. There was nc
room, it was added, to carry a torpedo.
Several maritime storekeepers swore
that nothing was put on board the
trawlers except supplies and coal.
"Vice Admiral" Carr, who was in
charge of the trawling fleet at the time
of the attack, said he had been in the
naval reserve for seventeen years and
was accustomed to men of war and
naval signalling. The only warship
be had seen on the trip in question,
besides the Russians, was the regular
British cruiser stationed off Hull. This
was several days prior to the trawling
fleet falling in with Vice Admiral Ro
jestvensky's squadron. Carr reiterat
ed that the first Russian division pass
fed close to the trawlers without firing
and the second division, after star
boarding and keeping their search
lights steadily on the vessels, fired
with the result known.
Answering the Russian consul, Carr
maintained that the Russians did not
signal to the trawlers to stop and
stoutly declared that there could not
have been a strange vessel among ^he
fishing fleet. I -_ J||
