tional prominence by hi.. >igiu en !i:n<n
v laws, has writt n Gov. Uleast a ^k-j
ina for a sate conduct and a body
?uarxl during a visit he wants to make;
to Columbia. The letter was received,
this morn in.2, at the governor's office!
along with a lot of newspaper clippings
detailing the lectures of Mr.
Chaloner on the lunacy laws. i
Mr. Chaloner, in his will, left $500,-!
tXK) to Virginia a.id North Carolina col-1
leges. He is considered sane in North ;
Carolina. Virginia and South Carolina,)
and lie takes refuge in the first two!
States. As things now are he is under j
the ban in New York, where so much ,
oi his property now exists.
To Interview Dr. Mitchell.
It is, says Mr. Chaloner in his letter-'
to the governor asking tor a body!
guard, for the purpose of holding an ;
interview with the president of the
University of South Carolina, that h? |
wants to come to Columbia and asks
for a. safe conduct and a body guard J
I'or the purpose. He says that he has I
willed $10,000 to the I'niversity of i
South Carolina. $10,000 to the College
of Charleston, $10,000 to the Citadel:
and $10,000 to Clemson. He wants an |
interview with the governor and says
that he will arrive at Hamlet, X. C., i
on Friday night and to have the body!
guard meet him there and he will come ;
to Columbia on Saturday, transact his i
business here and return to Hamlet!
The governor replied, through his I
private secretary, that he did not think
}ir. Chaloner needed a body guard,1
and cited him to the fact that he!
couldn't bf arrested and taken from '
this State without a requisition.
Mr. Cha loner says that he has rela- j
tives in Charleston, who he tears would!
rush hiili 011 a yacht and have him
returned to New York aad Bloom(ng- j
. dale asylum.
His story of the origin of the fu-ed |
between him and his family is that it
was while he was paying attention to
Miss Amelia Rives, the novelist, whom
he later mairied, and who is now;
Princess Troub stkoy, that her novel.
"The Quick and the Dead," appeared
in a magazine. His brother, YVinthrop
Astor Cliander, wricte "sarcastic comnients"
on the margin of a copy and
mailed U to him. As a result only one i
member of the Chaloner family of hL i
seven brothers and sisters was invited I
to his wedding at Castle Hill, in Al- j
Wants Judge Impeached.
It was Federal Judge Holt, who committal
f^ulnnpr 10 the asvlum. and I
he is trying to have the judge im-'
peached. Me says that he has scattered
oetiiio s throughout Virginia,
th ai'.J South Oaioiina asking tne j
to sign .ind forward them to
Congress 'lor this purpose. He has!
also addressed a letter to President
Tail asking for a safe conduct so he|
can eo to Washington and lay his fight:
u gainst the lunacy laws before the j
judiciary committee of the house.
-Air. Chaloner is o.e of the most in-!
reresting figures before the country ,
llorii of a wealthy family in Xew York,
and inheriting a considerable fortune,!
iu> fell out with his family, who thought:
his doings so eccentric that they ap-1
plied for a writ to have him placed j
ir an insane asylum and his property j
to be managed by a committee appoint- ;
< d by Uie court. He was pronounced;
insane and committed to Bloomingdale\
asylum, from which he effected his j
escape and went to Virginia, where he j
had landed interests. roFm his re-j
fi,rr-rnnilifted his fight to:
llrclC Ull. I I. i?v v, ^ _ _
have the New York courts declare him '
sane and to leturn his property to him. j
This lie has never yet accomplished, j
although lie is held to be sane in Vir-;
ginia, North and South Carolina, and
Xew York can't get him.
Changed His Name.
When he went to Virginia he changed
his name to Chaloner, and is well
known throughout tie State. His fight
against the lunacy laws in New York
and other States has attracted nationwide
attention, ana he is today declared
to be the best authority 021 this
subject in the country. He has lectured
throughout Virginia and Xorth
Carolina, and is at present in Raleigh,
X. C.y the guest cf Mr. and Mrs. William
J. Andrews, and at a large reception
given in his honor there last
week over 150 guests, including Governor
and Mrs. Kitchin and Judge Walter
Clark, Chi# f .Justice of the supreme
Mi*. Chaloner is a widely traveled
:: ::rl wond< rfully r ad man, having at'
tended school in Kngland and visits
ma ay parts of the world.
Through his private secretary, Mr
.John K. Aull, Governor Blease addressed
the following reply to Mr. Chaloner's
Governor HI ease's Reply.
"Governor Blease is in receipt ol
your communication of December 17
. . i : in >ii- i-nii i'-iT vnnt
UlHi UJi wis ijit- iu maun n,i jvm.
inti-jvj-'t in tin' ducational institutions
South Carolina, and to express the
hoi-<* that you may be successful in
carrying out your intention to leave
ten thousand dollars each to the University
-cf South Carolina, Clemson
college, the College of Charleston and
"The governor notes that you state
your relative s are attempting to break
your will by having you declared insane.
it is respectfully suggested for
your consideration that ; ou might obviate
this difficulty by sending the in
stitutions a certified check for the
amounts you dtsire to give them, arid
then there would be no need for a will;
and in addition you would have the
pleasure, during your life-time, of
realizing the great benfits of your
beneficence. If you would send to me,
as secretary to the governor, or to the
governor himself, a check for the entire
amount, for the benefit of the institutions,
it would be sent out to them
Thinks Body Guard Unnecessary.
"Governor Mease directs me to say
that he feels sure you would not need
a body guard to travel in South Carolina:
that the laws of this State, as of
the other Stat: s, are very strict in
and carrying them out of the State, a
requisition, honored by the governor
being necessary for this purpose, and
those proceeding without a requisition
being guilty of kidnapping.
"I am sure the president of the
South Carolina university would be
delighted to see one who is so kindly
disposed towards this and other institutions
of the State. Governor Blease
is himself extremely busy at this sea
son of the year, but will assisi in anvv
way he can your worthy effort to help
the institutions of this State.
"I trust you will find this letter satisfactory."
