ONLYTQIGNORANT .Chaloner Tells of Appearance of Graphic Automatism to Him. [Special to Tno Times-Dispatch.] CnarlottesVlUe, Vs., October is.?Tho mental automatism, or Innor-convor eullon with his x-faculty. was treat? ed at length this afternoon by John Armstrong chait-ncr, who Is mukinK a Vigorous light to have himself de? clared sane in New York. Through? out this afternoon's session before United States Commissioner Booth, sat the local representatives of the "com mit tee." John B. Moon and William O Fife, cf the firm Of Moon & Fife, nnd Judge R. T. W. Otike, Jr. Mr. Chaloncr sought to prove that graphic automatism was an tstreme ly frequent phenomenon, and that it was Impossible to dedtice from Its presence nny conclusions whntover detrimental to the sanity of tho per son who manifests it. "It sounds lltfo a ghost story, to the Ignorant only." he shouted "This graphic automatism first ap? peared In December, 190," ho said. "In my billiard ro<itn at "Merry Mills, while I was playing pyramid pool. The balls broke In a strange manner, suggesting a map of the heavens. I broke them again, and then a third time, and In each Instance In n simi? lar manner. firming circles and curves. Tills seemed S"> str?ng" thit" ?1\ took an envelope and a pencil to make a drawing. Behold, when I it tempted to draw a billiard ball, my pencil failed to obey my will, and In stead wrote three words. 'Hot a plan chatte' (a heart-shaped toy operated In drawing rooms for amusement). Thus." he said, "was my first Intro-1 auction to this purely hypothetical j force." Fatigued- ho said, he retired \ and while lying In bed allowed his hand to write on a tablet, "I am noli going to tell what this unknown force which controlled my pencil was." in? terjected Chaloncr, "for I don't have to. I know what It claims to be. and ns long as It operates with me, 1 nm satisfied." "Tipped oit" on Stock. Continuing, he said the rapid writing' kept tip for half an hour. Chtttonerl said he was asked if he desired to be | "tipped off" to eighths In the stick i market, to which he replied, "Certainly, ' and If you make good I will give yotl credit for It." "How much money hove you to In? vest?" was asked. "1 have about $600 In bank, nnd am willing to risk that 'n an experiment to test the clairvoyant faculty of tho x-power." "What kind of stock must I invest in?" chaloner asked. "It will be time enough to tell you about thai when you reach trie! broker's afn.ee In New York," came back tho answer. Chaloner then narrated how ho Obeyed the request t" order a team ua-i drive to OordonsvlUo; took the mid? night train for Gotham, went to a broker's olllec two days before Christ? mas, invested his money and realized hb much ngnln.

Come and st9&. tlon of determining thnt the experi? ment was a success, Chaloner said he never realised any financial benefit from the transaction, since hn left the money up, and lifter he was slapped into Blnomlngdnie it was drawn out by the late Stanford White. Chaloner laid emphasis on the fact that he was BhU-SptrltUallStlc, saying that his experiment was simply a dar? ing one In tho unknown Held of psych? ology. Knowledge of nible. During the deposition Chaloner showed remarkable knowledge of tho Bible, gained, ho said, from an ex? haustive StUd?' of It while entitled In Bloomingdaie. "It has been a gre'nt help to me In tho Journey over the sea of l'fe. 1 am a regular old-time Episcopal bellovor? a thoroughly regular Christian. I bo lleve In the entire thlrly-niiio articles of the Churuli of Ktiglnml. I am a believer In Old-t ashloricd religion, and am protld of It." His study t>f the Bible, be said, was duo to a promise that he had made his mother. "She asked me to road six verses a night until it was finished." Chaloner scathingly denounced Dr. Moses Starr for criticizing him In March, 1807, for having In his posses? sion n Bible thai was "all marked up." He stated that he frCQUOnlly took I Bible with him In his travels.
