Titled Spiritualist Denies Hei
Ever Made Anything From
His Lectures.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle showed hia
photographs of ghosts and ectoplasmic
forms last night to a crowd that filled
every seat in Carnegie Hall and occu
pied all the standing room the Are j
laws would permit. Half as many
more fulled to see the spirit pictures ,
because the hall was not big enough |
to receive them. For an hour the
British spiritualist showed stereopti
con reproductions of the pictures that |
he says should leavo no Intelligent]
mind in doubt of the truth of his
The darkness of the theater, the
spooktness of the subject, the uncanny j
effects produced by the pictures and
the impressive sincerity of Sir Arthur
as he told the history of the subject
on the screen had a weird effect upon
the crowd. There was little applause,
but always a dead silence?so deep
that a. cough or a rustle startled. The
evenness of Sir Arthur's voice as he
talked in the darkness?an evenness |
amounting almost to dull monotcpie in
the circumstances?added to the gen
eral effect. There was a nervous sigh
and a more nervous giggle to be heard
when the lights went on again.
He started out dealing with very |
material things.
Want* to Set Public Illsbt.
"When a lecturer talks about a more
or less unpopular subject," 'he began,
"he is bound to catch a few brickbats
and he must expect them. But I should
like to set the public right before enter- \
Ing upon this, my third lecture in New

private affairs. He says. I believe, that
I am 'raking In the shekels." I should
like to sy this for his benefit. I never
in my life took one shilling for the
platform work I have done in this
When the applause subsided and Sir
Arthur made a few remarks meant to
define his general subject, the lights
went off and tho pictures went on.
The picture that Sir Arthur salcl im
pressed him most and which, lie said, j
was the only authentic picture of its sort j
lie knew of. showed a ghost stnlking
the length of a room at noon and hold
ing in her hand a lighted ^andle. Sir
Arthur admitted it looked like the first
unsuccessful efforts of the amateur j
photographer?the kind that forgets to ]
turn the film and takes exposure after 1
ixposure on one negative.
"But this was a photograph tal.en by I
a skilled photographer," sai.i S'r
?Arthur. "He knew his business. It '
simply goes to sliow that you can see ]
ghosts and sometimes with the naked
The audience gasped at first. The
cho3t appeared to be a white clad nurs<i.
Tn the foreground she was quite ap
parent and opaque. You could sue i
through the filmy form and discern tne I
chair that flesh and blood would have
hidden. Five duplicates of her followed
after the first, each a little less distinct,
and more nebulous.
Then there was a picture of Katie
King, the spook discovered by Sir Will
iam Crookes. Katie was shown in
snowy garb, arm in arm with Sir Will
iam. Then she was shown stepping out i
of the sleeping form of Miss Gallagher, j
Sir William's medium. Katie appeared |
to b" inueh larger than Miss Gallagher.
Sir William clipped a lock from Katie 3 ;
head, but it disappeared when light1
struck it. Katie died 200 years befote!
her picture was taken, said Sir Arthur. |
One of the impressive moments of the
evening came when Sir Arthur told of I
going to Crewe to seek a picture of his j
? lead eon. Klngsley. The first sitting j
produced no young man. but it did show i
n clearly written letter from Archdeacon [
Colley. who had passed on.
"Well done. Friend Doyle. Greetings
to all," read the message on fragments
of paper.

Another picture of ghosts?a whoiiy
different matter from photographs or
ectoplasmic form and beings, hue..
ghost pictures were not to be confused
with jnere spirit pictures said Mr
Arthur. But this ghost picture was
taken on the west coast of Africa. Two
negro women were standing beside a
hut. They were told to be still while tile
photographer took them. The printed
picture showed three negro women, bu.
no hut. The third negro woman?not at
all opaque nor in any degree less sub
stantial in the photograph than her
sisters?was graced by a white shroud.
.Sir Arthur rather amazed his spell
bound audience by announcing that he
had no psychic power at all. He did not
dwell upon his own shortcomings but
produced a photograph of a crystal
globe such as the gazers use. It was just
a crystal globe when the camera was
focused upon It. A printed page mi-.ht
be read through it. Moreover it was
at high noon when the photograph was

"Perhaps you would be better pleased
to see a face that you might know," said
Sir Arthur.
There was a general stirring and 'vari
ous guesses as to whose thin wraith of
likeness was forthcoming. It was the
late Hiram Maxim's profile, lightly
limned on a photograph of a stolid
looking woman. There was much ap
plause. for the Maxim face was familiar
to many of those present.
A photograph of Sir Oliver Lodge

was a wave of gasping when the next
picture was thrown on the screen. On
a divan sat Lady Lodge. Next to her
sat Mrs. Leonard, a medium. Betwe. n

was a decidedly uncanny character to
this picture because of the unutterable
tenderness in the eyes of the '^lbo^
who appeared to be seeking to attract
his mother's attention.
Like Coney's TrlcW Mirror.
There were other picture?. Some gave
the impression that the sentitive caat
ing on the plate had run as though un
der great heat and had sho? !"
undulations on the print. e:ird fac s,
such as one sees when standing b^for
those trick mirrors at Coney Island,
showed on these distorted plates.
There were subjects that suggested
that the man end the woman who had
sat for the photograph had moved while
the photographer was pressing the bulb.
Only there were six or eight unaccounted
for "hands ar.d here and there a puff of
vapor tliat seemed to be taking human
form. , . ?
And finally there was a picture ot a
woman in a trance with six men look
ing above her head. They appeared to
be star'led. Tlvjy had a right to be.
Out of the sleeping body of the medium
was coming a radiant creature who
seemed to issue from the woman s
shoulder like a wisp of smoke from a
??Iftarett*. The wisp curled upward and
began taking form. Presently the leg*
and body of a beautiful woman were
seen and then the head and shoulders,
heavy with unfastened hair. It wasn t
a moving picture but If ?no followed
the wisp ot smoke one received the im
pression of the movie.
"Tou have seen the picture or an
angel." said Sir Arthur. "That's what
that was; an angel."

First Degree Verdict for Di
recting Watchman's Death
at Warehouse.
Raymond C. Collins. 33. of 1671
Eighth avenue, Brooklyn, wa3 convicted
of murder in the first degree last night
by a jury before Judge Tiernan in the
Richmond County Court at St. George.
Coliins, said to have made much money
from bootlegging, was indicted with
three other men for the murder on the
night of March 1 of Michael Connor, b4,
a night watchman at the Tanner-Gordon
warehouse at the foot of Jersey strec ,
New Brighton.
The murder of Connor resulted from
an attempt to steal several barrels of
whisky valued at $35,000 from the ware
house. District Attorney Joseph Molloy
admitted at the trial of Collins that the
three gunmen who actually did the
shooting never have been captured.
Eugene Merrell. captain of a towboat
and a former Lieutenant in the navy,
testified that he had been hired to trans
port the whisky from the warehouse to
a pier in Brooklyn. He said that about
two hours after the murder Collins
rushed on board his towboat and told
him the night watchman had surprised
him as he was coming out of the ware
house and had chased him under a,
freight car. Connor, according to Mer
rell, b"-gan punching Collins with a stick.
Collins called fo the three gunmen to
"get him." and the watchman was shot.
The men indicted with Collins are
James Pymm. alias James Flynn ; Frank
Brown and Joseph Conigal. They re
quested separate trials. It was rumored
last night at the Richmond County Court
House that they might offer to plead
guilty to a lesser degree of murder.
The verdict was announced last night
after the jury had deliberated an hour
and ten minutes. Collins will be seri
I tencod Monday. His wife sat in the
I court room throughout the trial across
j from the wife and three children of i
! Connor.

bery of last December, wept all night
Thursday because, as Judge Talley of
General Sessions remarked at the time,
her son was facing a twenty year prison

up a razor which whs lying on a bureau i
and attempted to slash her throat with '
it, but her children restrained her.
She was persuaded to go to b?d and !
her children retired, but when they were '

1 Thomas was the oldest living child of
Mrs. Donovan and she was heartbroken
over hi* arrest. Another son. a little
older than Thomas, was killed In the

iduring the day, a standard measure of
| light, stars that are visible in the day
light and the puzzling question of why
equal quantities of certain substances
differ in weight were among the sub
jects under discussion.
Charles K. Brush of Cleveland re-1
lated experiments conducted by him .
showing that equal quantities of zinc ,
and bismuth have slightly different |
weights. Heretofore, scientists have i
agreed. It has rot been doubted that i
; equal masses of all substances had
! equal weights. The discrepancy. Prof.
Brush declared, probably is duo to the
! fact gravitation does not act with equal I
1 force on all kinds of matter.

British Envoy Predicts
Prosperity Greater Than
Any One Has Dreamed.
Depew Praised by Monarch
and Ambassador at Din
ner for Latter.
Not a Speck on the Horizon of
England and U. S. at Pil
grims' Plaza Fcnst.
Sir Auckland Geddes. British Am- |
bussador to tha United States, told the
Pilgrims Society at its dinner in his
honor at the Plaza last night that he |
was unable to sec a single interna- !
tional issue likely to affect prejudi- |
tiully the friendship ot the United
States and Great Britain. Sir Auck
land spoks in optimistic vein of the
international situation as a whole, and
maintained that "everywhere the tkies '
are clearing."
Chauncey M. Depew, president of
the Pilgrims, in introducing the Brit
ish Ambassador, recalled that when he
was last the guest of the ssoclcty, two
years ago. Sir Auckland took up the
question of the world's oil supply and
on that evening succeeded in dispers
ing completely the suspicion that
Great Britain was crowding this coun
try from a fair participation In the oil
fields of Uie world.
"It is interesting to recall," Sir Auck
land replied, "as evidence of how far
we have traveled since that in that
spcech I spoke not only of oil but also
of naval shipbuilding and Ireland. I
think it may be said that none of these
topics now calls for discussion as a live
International iJauc to be regarded with
a watchful eye by your country and
mine. There Is no subject of Angio
, American difference upon which I can
dilate, and that, although diplomat
ically most gratifying, Is oratorlcally
most hampering."
Appreciated l?y the Klngr.
The dinner wa3 given to Sir Auck
| land on the occasion of his completion
of two years as Ambassador. A cable
gram was received from I.ord Stam
fordham. principal private secretary to
King George. In which It was stated
that "the terms In which the Pilgrims
Society refer to His Majesty's Am
bassador arc highly appreciated by the
King, while the fact that this gathering
is under the presidency of your dis
tinguished and veteran citizen, Mr.
Chauncey Depew. who was the leading
! spirit of New York's welcome to two
I Prli.ces of Vales at an interval of
' nearly sixty years adds special luster
j to the occasion."
Mr. Depew said that Sir Auckland had
1 made good and that no man had more
' to do with the success of the Washing
I ion conference than he had.
"In his two years' service." Mr. Depew
said, "he has won the friendship and
respect of the President of the c'nitfd
i States, the Secretary of State and the
! Foreign Relations committees of both
; branches of Congress,"
Mr. Depew said that among the re
j suits of the conference he prized par
i ticularly the killing of the yellow peril
by the four Power treaty. "It has de
livered vs forever from the yellow peril
species," he declared, "'and that is a
I great service."
Sir Auckland also went hack to the
Washington conference, which he called
the greatest in the history of inter
national conferences. Its great features,
he declared, were its frankness and
Secret* In *ewnpaperi.
"The writers at the conference told ?)?
all about the hidden motives and the
Jealously guarded secret discussions at
which I can only surmise from the
completeness and accuracy of their
knowledge, they must have assisted
from behind the arras." said the Am
bassador. "Frankly, though I was a
delegate, I was in complete Ignorance
of these mysterious conclaves until I
read of them in iny favorite morning
paper, even when, as was sometimes the.
case. I found that some one using my
name had been present and had mani
fested an almost Machiavellian cyni
Only by the same method*. Sir Auck
land continued, can the world situation
be completely cleared, making way for
a period of prosperity, which when It
comes he believes will be greater than
any In our experience and beyond any
we have dreamed of.
Most of his speech was the develop
ment of a figure in which ho conceived
of the war and its aftermath as the
Grand Canyon, "the deepest, most ter
rifying chasm ever cut across the path
of mankind."
"The whole world waits upon effective
lendershlp to carry us acros.s the deep
shadow ca*l by th< eiionomlc plight
of tho world," he said, "and this lead
ership must realize that every foot of
the way niu*t be traveled. It cannot
be Jumped, but I feel confident of the
happy termination of the Journey.
It is only by getting together and
helping one another that wc fan *et

as wc might or a.-, propcrous as we
might until all are across It was in
that spirit the Washington conference
was held, and It la In the rime spirit
the representatives of my country have
gone to Genoa."
Sir Auckland finished with a eompll
