HE WAS UNDER A HYPNOTIC SPELL Confession Made the Michigan Minister By Carthage, 111., Jan. J. Carmichael, before suiciding- today, made a complete confession of the murder of Gideon Browning, near Port Huron, Mich., in letters to sev- eral people. The preacher- left the sheriff at Adair, Mich., giving details of the murder, the dismembering and incineraticn. of Browning and attrib- uted the act to self defence and moral cowardice becaase of the hypnotic in- fluences which Browning, an illiterate carpenter, held over him. While the confession of the clergyman is long, and on some points minute, it leaves many questions in regard to the tra- gedy unsolved. Admitting -that the statements- of the murderer are' true, some parts of the letter tend to cause the impression, that the .confession is really the production, of an unsound mind. The preacher does not explain how he and Browning- came to go to the Rattle Run church, or why both seem ed bent on keeping their presence se- cret, except to say that Browning wanted the minister to officiate at Browning's wedding that night.
