Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA December 2012
156 Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 42 Number 4 December 2012 Annual Announcement Darling and Baker's Chiropractic College, courtesy Palmer College Archives THE YEAR THAT WAS 1912 PETERS DARLINGAND BAKER'S CHIROPRACTIC COLLEGE was located at the corner of Emporia and Dewey Avenues in Wichita, Kansas. College offce and Adjustery were located at 127 South Main Street.59 E.C. Wilson, DC, of Brooklyn, Iowa: Not Guilty.63 Iowa Miller of Fairfeld, Iowa, was arrested, waived examination and was put on a $200 bond, which she refused to pay, even though she could afford it, and announced that she was ready to proceed to jail. Her many friends offered to pay the bond, but she refused. A petition for her release was signed by more than 180 people and she was released that afternoon.64 Glenn and Helen Hall, DCs, of Winterset, Iowa: Grand Jury refused to indict.65 J.L. Siver, DC, of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, Not Guilty.66 C.F. Wilson, DC, of Broken Bow, Nebraska: Not Guilty.67 J.E. Meyer, DC, of Huntington, Indiana: Acquitted. Prosecuting Attorney stated it would be the last case he tried. He had tried to discourage the Medical Board before the trial.68 A second case was brought against Meyer, but the jury found him not guilty again.69 H.B. Curry, of Harrisville, West Virginia: Jury failed to indict.68 J.F. Fallett of Wichita, Kansas, was charged with practising without a license. His attorneys requested that the case be squashed.70 Charles W. Greene, DC, of Stafford, Kansas: Acquitted by jury.71 Frank Siveny, DC, of Providence, New York, had been charged with practising medicine without a license. In the frst trial at the Sixth District Court the jury disagreed, at a second trial he was convicted, but took his case to the Supreme Court.72 B.H. Rhoads, of Sterling, Kansas, was found not guilty by the jury.73 N.J. Mapes, DC, of Cleveland, Ohio, found not guilty by jury.74 G.G. Woods, DC, and his wife, L.J. Woods, DC, of Kenmare, North Dakota, were charged with the practice of medicine at Minot, the county seat in December 1912. G.T. Strand and J.F. McGinnis, two chiropractors who witnessed the proceedings were in high praise of the UCA Attorney Hartwell who won the case with a Not Guilty result. Of interest is that Kenmare was located 52 miles northwest of the county seat and the Woods were unknown in Minot. The publicity surrounding the trial made them well known, an advertisement for them they could not have bought, and they decided to open an offce in Minot on 1 January 1913. After the trial, the judge, the court reporter and some jurors requested to be adjusted, and one MD, after having discussion with Strand and McGinnis, stated he would enrol at Palmer, as did several others that had attended the trial.75 Ora L. Brown, DC, of Akron, Ohio, was indicted in April 1912 by the Grand Jury, charged with practising medicine without a license. He was convicted on the fact that he had adjusted the spine of a man and received payment for that. Judge Wanamaker deferred sentence. Brown asked for a new trial, but the motion was overruled and he was sentenced to UNIVERSAL CHIROPRACTORS' ASSOCIATION The last UCA directory was published in the February 1912 issue of the Chiropractor as it was found that medical prosecutors could use it to fnd the location of chiropractors they wanted to charge with the practice of medicine without a license. PROSECUTION AND PERSECUTION The concerted effort by the medical establishment to eliminate the practice of chiropractic continued unabated. The State of Iowa appeared to have the most cases against chiropractors. A cursory search through The Chiropractor noted cases brought against them: Lucy Bowman, DC, of Winfeld, Iowa: Grand Jury refused to indict.60 H.M. Warmouth, DC, of Tipton, Iowa: Not Guilty.61 G.L. Chamberlin, DC, (great-uncle of Mary Ann Chance) of Atlantic, Iowa: Grand Jury refused to indict.62
