The paper discusses lunar and stellar aberration, and the absence of aberration in terrestrial sources, based on a space medium of separate ethers in which a Galilean electrodynamic theory is valid.
This paper is a discussion of Dingle's examination of the meaning of the Doppler shift in the light of the postulate of relativity. Dingle's examination is little known but of great significance.

Independent positive and negative partial fields of equal value are assumed to be associated with every source mass. These complimentary electric fields behve like dormant fields with a net zero field strength except in the region of a proton or electron. A mass upon which these fields are impressed contains an equal number of protons and electrons. Even a neutron is assumed to contain a proton and electron. The impressed partial fields exert a combination of attraction and repulsion on protons and electrons embedded in that mass. A nonlinearity in the region of each of those charges tilts the balance such that the net electric force is one of attraction that meets the conditions of a gravitation force. The theory is then extended to include additional properties of the dormant field, such as a "medium" to take the place of Maxwell's luminiferous ether and a feedback medium in electrodynamics. This unification of electromagnetic theory and gravitation also includes gravitational radiation.
