What does "that of others generally adverse" mean? does it refer to "the presence of persons with adverse beliefs" ?

"5. That the circumstances under which the phenomena occur are variable, the most prominent fact being that the presence of certain persons seems necessary to their occurrence, and that of others generally adverse; but this difference does not appear to depend upon any belief or disbelief concerning the phenomena.

    It means that the presence of certain people seems necessary for the phenomena to occur but, to the contrary, the presence of certain other people seems to ensure that it will NOT happen.
