MAY BE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR MANITOBA Spiritualists Claim De ceased Presidents Among Their Sponsors. 7 JAMBS O'DONNILL BBNWETT WASHINGTON", May 21. Bedlam broke loose in marble halls when a judiciary subcommittee of the House of Representatives gave another hearing to mediums, to Houdini, banc of occult practitioners at $2 a practice, and to Houdini's investigators. Out of a chaos of harsh language and handypank, neutral onlookers extracted the substantial fact that so late as September 28, 1925, Robert T. Lincoln, son of the emancipator, made an emphatic written denial of statements, attributed to spiritualists, that his father ever had been a spiriualist. "Nevertheless," said Houdini In sworn testimony to the committee holding witch-ridden hearings on the bill of Representative Sol Bloom, Democrat, New York, to stop the trafllc in so-called spirit communica tions in the District of Columbia, "nevertheless mediums continue to trade cm Abraham Lincoln's name, and I know for a fact that they have pretended to bring Lincoln Into four seances held at the same time of the same night.". LINCOLN'S rRBMONITIOMS. "And yet," replied Eepresentative Rathbone, Republican, Illinois, ' "Lin coln did speak of having had vivid premonitions of his death." Houdini acknowledged that, but described those premonitions, of which Lincoln gave detailed description, "as coincidences merely." Asked by Representative- Hammar, Democrat. North Carolina, whether he made any claim to "divine powers," Houdini replied: "No, I'm just an ordinary mortal trying to get along," adding that his exposures of mediums were costing him $40,000 a year. But his money was no lure to the mediums clamoring In the marble halls today for, with an armed detective at his elbow, he flung $10,000 In chaste new hundred-dollar bills on the com mittee table and said: "I will deliver that money now to any medium who now and here will make a 'demonstration' that I can not prove a fraud." Tho brief, but solemn, silence that followed was- broken by the shrill tones of the billowy "Madam Marcia," one of the federal city's leading maenads, who cried: "That money belongs to me. I pre dicted Warren U. Harding's election and death." DIDN'T GIT THE MONEY. But she did not get tho money and amid waxing solemnity Houdini's eagle-eyed almor whisked It back Into his brief case, nobody having offered to demonstrate anything. - Harding was again dragged Into the hearing when June Coates, another medium, having avidly taken the oath, testified that Mrs. Warren O. Harding "openly visited mediums, as did many connected with her during the Itarding administration." ' Jane Coates gave her sworn testimony In pages that reached for yards, denying that at "a reading" on Mon day last, she had told Houdini's chief Investigator, Rose Mackenberg; that the family at present occupying the White House was addicted to table tipping or any other form of mcdlum-tstlc hlghjlnks. "I am convinced that Houdini has practiced black magic on this woman and hypnotized her," Jane Coatea said, referring to a certain medium. BHB WAS "WONDERrUL." After Jane Coates had been cross-examined by Representative Bloom, she withdrew to her seat in Ihe audience breathing heavily and enquiring audibly to her sister maenads, "Did he catch me on anything?" "Dear," said Madam Marcia, "you were wonderful!" Other mediums testified that many who come to them for "readings" arc members of the most conservative of the orthodox churches. Houdini countered on this with the sworn statement that he had once so bewildered the late President Roose velt that the president had asked: "Houdini, la this spiritualism?" "No, colonel," the handcuff king had replied, "it s Just my tricks." Duchess Is Impressed With Canadian Outlook LONDON. May 21. The Duchess of Atholl, under secretary of state for education, who has Just returned from a tour of Canada, Is considerably Impressed with the potential wealth of the Dominion. In an interview here she said that whllo Canada was already a great and wealthy country, the resources yet to be developed wore well worth all the toil that could he devoted to It, One conclusion which had been formed on her trip, she ssld, was the paramount need in Canada for more Immigrants of the "right sort." The Maeic of The Medicine Man In th pioneer days of this country, the Indian Medicine Man knew a remedy in tht roots and herbs of the field for the alleviation of almost every ailment of mankind. So potent am prove, mat in renet from suffering seemed like magic. More than 60 years ago Lydia K. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass., compounded her now famous Vegetable Compound from ths roots and herbs of the field, and in ail thee years, nothing has ever been found to equal it in overcoming ailments of women.
