Aftr Four Year of Confinement la
Asylum Re Eacapes I'nder Moat
Richmond, Va Oct. 17. After
ereral years of silence, John Arm
strong Chanler, the former husband
of Amelia Riven, la about to come
to the front again with publications
and legal proceedings which are
likely to be sensational. He an
nounces that he has in press and will
begin to distribute the latter part of
this week a book of one thousand
pages which la said by tboKe who
have seen It to be a marvel.
It will be remembered that Chan
ler Ih a member of an old and
w.-althy New York family and a de
fendant of the original Astors. He
baa about $1,000,000 in his own
right. A number of yearH ago he was
Incarcerated in the Illoomlngdale
asylum, New York, as a lunatic.
After four years of confinement he
neaped under most sensational cir
cumstances and disappeared. Finally
be reappeared suddenly in Albemarle
county, WeKt Virginia, where he had
married Mli.s Riven, author of the
"Quick and the Deal," from whom
be wan afterward divorced. She Is
now Princess Troubctsky.
Chanler is a lawyer and has de
voted himself during the last five
years to acquiring a wonderful fund
of information and precedent on the
lunacy laws of the world. He has
given special attention to those of
Chanler is In the extraordinary
and probably unprecedented position
of being socially and legally a lunatic
In his own State, New York, and
unable to return without danger of
arrest and incarceration, and being
deprived of control of his own prop
erty, which Is in the handa of a com
mittee. In Virginia, North Carolina
and elsewhere in the country he la a
free man, going and coming an he
pleases, and Is regarded as fully
competent to manage his affairs ac
cording to formal Judgments of
court. He has property In boih these
States, and especially large intereats
t Roanoke Itaplds, North Carolina,
of which he was ono of the founders.
The book la said to consist almest
entirely of extracts from official rec
ords and court Judgment and pro
ceedings. He asserts to his frlondi
that from these documents ho will
prove that no mo leading lawyers of
the New York bar have bcon guilty
of moKt atrocious deceit and cruelty
and conspiracy against his liberty
and property. He will show, fur
ther, he ha'vh, that some dlatlngulshc 3
citizens, Including several of bin own
near relatives, have been guilty of
Chanler's book and his renewed
personal activity are taken to mean
that after long preparation, he has
enllsteil fur strenuous warfare
gainst the lunacy lawH of New York,
but more enpeclally against members
of hlH own family and others who
were Instrumental in having him de
clared a lunatic and Incompetent; for
recovery of his property Into bis own
keeping nnd Judicial confirmation of
his competency and tho right to
mnnnge It himself.

Frankfort, Ky., Oct. 17. Great in
terest Is centered In the hearing here
today of Charles A. Peabody, presi
dent of the Mutual Life Insurance
Company of New York, before Com
missioned of Insurance Henry L.
Prewltt. Mr. Prewltt some time ago
cited Mr. Peabody to appear before
him and explain the dismissal of
Colorado Blscoe Hlndman of Louis
ville, general manager of the Mutual
Life for Kentucky and Tennessee.
Mr. Hindman's name Is on the "Se
lected FuBlon ticket" with thlrty-flve
other names for election as trustee,
as against a similar number of names
on the "Administration ticket" and
the united committee's ticket and
Mr. Prewltt wants to know why Mr.
Hlndman, who Is supposed to repre
sent the policy-holders, was removed
from office. When the fusion ticket
was made up the Mutual Life Insur
ance Company informed its agents
that the duties of trustees were con
sidered incompatible with the duties
of an employe and called upon all
employes to support the administra
tion ticket fully and unreservedly.
Mr. Hlndman is not the first gen
eral agent to be removed from office.
as several of the company's men In
similar positions in the New England
States and Michigan were distnlssed.
But this Is the first time the Insur
ance Commis.'loner of any State has
called upon the company to account
for the removal of any officer, and
the case therefore Is far-reaching In
Importance. Mr. Prewltt has the
power to revoke the charter of any
Insurance company doing business in
