HE IS DRUG USER
Says He Takes Docaine
To Be Useful A
"I know thnt cocnlno Is Injurious

It and ho useful for n tow years than

This Is the wny Dr. Atchcrlcy ex
cuses his use of tho drugs which have
probably been tho chief cause ot put
ting Mm on his defense on the clinrgo
of Insanity for which ho is now be
ing tried tu Judge Lindsay's court.
The Doctor took tho ntnnd In Ills
own behalf this morning. Under thn
I questioning of Attorney Mngoon, ho
admitted that ho Is a drug-user and
that he Is addicted to tho habit of
taking opium nnd cocaine. He de
nied that he had tnken morphine re
cently, saying ho had not used this
drug since l'.'Ol. Opium, ho said, Is
,vei'y injurious to voting people, nud
I ho called It tho cuiso of China. Hut
In his own enso and In the cases of
other people over 40 years of age ho
did not believe the effects to bo dele

ed that he takes only tho ofllclal-dosn
as prescribed by the United Slates
pharmacopoca, Asked why he took
It, ho replied that he did so on ac
count of tho persecution he has un
dergone and tho trouble ho has had.
Ho denied that opium ever causes
paranoia. Magoon asked him If thero
was nny possibility ot his Idea ot per
secution being a delusion. "Tho res
olutions passed by the Hoard of
Health aro not illusions," replied
Tho Jury appears to bn extremely
