The classic whodunnit: Did Arthur Conan Doyle plot the murder of Harry Houdini?...

SIR Arthur Conan Doyle is typically portrayed as a genial Scottish gentleman who in his spare time created one of the world's greatest detective characters.

But, in a case worthy of the great Sherlock Holmes himself, the author has become embroiled in a sinister mystery over the death of the legendary escapologist Harry Houdini.

Houdini's great-nephew announced plans yesterday to exhume his body, amid claims that Conan Doyle or one of his confederates may have poisoned him.

The escapologist died on Halloween 1926, ostensibly from a ruptured appendix caused by a blow to the stomach during a backstage stunt. But the circumstances surrounding his demise are as murky as the rivers where he often performed his death-defying performances.

At the time of his death, Houdini was embroiled in an acrimonious battle with Conan Doyle and other followers of Spirtualism, which held that human "mediums" could communicate with the dead.

Initially friends and mutual admirers, Houdini and Conan Doyle fell out after the author's wife performed a séance in which she claimed to commune with the escapologist's dead mother.

Houdini claimed the séance was a fraud and dedicated much of his life's work to debunking spiritualists, much to the chagrin of true believers, including the Scottish writer.

In The Secret Life of Houdini authors William Kalush and Larry Sloman detail a letter from Conan Doyle in November 1924 which had more than a hint of Professor Moriarty-style malevolence.

Houdini, he wrote, would "get his just desserts very exactly meted out ... I think there is a general payday coming soon".

Two years later, Houdini - by all accounts an extraordinary physical specimen - was dead before his 53rd birthday.

After a performance in Montreal in 1927, a student named J Gordon Whitehead unleashed several punches into Houdini's abdomen.

It is this well-known incident which has widely been blamed for Houdini's death from a ruptured appendix in Detroit nine days later.

But Kalush and Sloman suggest that this punch was not the cause of Houdini's death and note that "the Spiritualist underworld's modus operandi in cases like this was often poisoning" - possibly arsenic.

"It's hard to ... suggest Doyle played an active role" in an attack on Houdini, the book concludes. "But that's not to say that Conan Doyle's circle's condemnation of Houdini and the forecasting of his doom for standing in the way of their movement wasn't read as a code by other spiritualists."

In light of their claims Houdini's great-nephew wants a team of top forensic investigators to conduct new tests on his ancestor's body.

"It needs to be looked at," said George Hardeen, whose grandfather was Houdini's brother, Theodore. "His death shocked the entire nation, if not the world. Now, maybe it's time to take a second look."

Mr Hardeen's attorney, Joseph Tacopina added: "There was a motive to murder Harry Houdini and it was suppressed and covered up."

The team working on the exhumation includes internationally-known forensic pathologist Dr Michael Baden, and Professor James Starrs, a forensic pathologist who has studied the disinterred remains of gunslinger Jesse James and the "Boston Strangler", Albert DeSalvo.

Dr Baden, who chaired panels reinvestigating the deaths of President John F Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King, pointed out two oddities in Houdini's death certificate, noting that his appendix was on the left side, rather than the right. And the diagnosis of appendicitis caused by a punch was "very unusual", he said.

Prof Starrs said he was long familiar with the story of Houdini's death and believed the fatal injury was the result of an accident. But details contained in the recent biography convinced him otherwise.

"My eyebrows went up when I read this book," Prof Starrs said. "I thought, 'This is really startling, surprising and unsettling, and at bottom, suspicious in nature'."

Yesterday, Owen Dudley Edwards of Edinburgh University, who has written a biography on Conan Doyle and also edited the Oxford University Press' collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, defended the Scottish writer.

He said: "This is a publicity stunt spurred on by lunacy. [Conan Doyle] was an honourable man and one of Scotland's greatest writers. He was likeable and kind, a true Scottish gentleman. Yes, he got worked up about Spiritualism, but he would never threaten anyone, that would not be gentlemanly. I would like to see [the] sources for such wild accusations".

But even if poisoning is ruled out, conspiracy theories surrounding Conan Doyle are likely to persist.

Champion of spiritualism

DESPITE his scientific background, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a former medical student and author of the great empiricist Sherlock Holmes, became enthralled by a movement based on the supernatural.

Spiritualism claimed contact could be made with those who had died. Mediums would offer to commune with dead spirits - most charged the bereaved to listen in.

After the mass deaths of the First World War and the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1919, the appeal of Spiritualism grew. Conan Doyle was a fervent supporter. and travelled the globe lecturing about it. In 1920, he famously endorsed two photographs of fairies taken in the Yorkshire village of Cottingley, later to be revealed a fraud. He wrote a book, History of Spiritualism (1926), in which he endorsed the famous Boston medium Mina "Margery" Crandon who claimed to be able to produce ectoplasm.

Police gain new powers to seize thieves' 'bling'.

Sunday March 25, 2007

A hard core of 5,000 career criminals who commit half of all crimes are to be targeted in a new police surveillance campaign. Repeat petty offenders, such as burglars and car thieves, will be sent letters on release from prison warning them that they are being watched by the police and will be subjected to surprise home visits. The plans will be unveiled this week in the latest findings from a government policy review.
The Prime Minister will also reveal new powers for police to seize valuables such as jewellery, plasma TVs and other elements of the 'bling' lifestyle lived by many offenders such as drug dealers when they make arrests, if they suspect these are bought with the proceeds of crime. Currently officers need a court order to take such items away after a conviction. The Home Office estimates that 5,000 offenders commit a million crimes a year between them. Ministers believe targeting them could mean big reductions in crime, after a pilot scheme found subsequent offences committed by individuals under surveillance were reduced by 62 per cent.

A Downing Street source said: 'Some of these people can be doing 10 crimes a week, and it's often driven by drugs. It is saying, "Let's target probation officers' time and really breathe down the necks of these particular individuals".' The offenders will also be offered help to come off drugs.

Tony Blair and the Home Secretary, John Reid, will be flanked by Gordon Brown to announce the policy review's proposals on crime and security. The package will include measures to prevent reoffending by teenagers coming out of young offenders' institutions.

The national Asset Recovery Agency, set up by the government to seize ill-gotten gains from criminals, was recently criticised by the National Audit Office, which found that it had spent £65m to recover £23m - although Downing Street will say this week it expects to have recovered at least £125m by the end of this financial year, and double that by 2009-10. The agency can only remove assets after seeking court orders once someone has been convicted, but increasing police seizure powers would allow possessions to be taken even before they are charged with a crime, speeding up the process and potentially increasing the value of seizures, although anyone acquitted would be likely to claim their valuables back.

Downing Street believes the change will target the high-profile 'middle merchants' of crime rather than major criminals, making the lifestyle of dealers and low-level gangsters who flash their wealth around look less enticing.

Police get green light to set speed cameras wherever they want...

Motorists face a random speed camera blitz under new laws that give police the power to site them on roads with no history of accidents.

Under new Government regulations, mobile police squads will set up randomly to catch "surfing" drivers who slow down at camera sites before speeding up again.

The aim is to create "uncertainty" in the minds of drivers and promote the sense that they could be prosecuted at any time in any place.


Motorists face a random speed camera blitz under new laws that give police the power to site them on roads with no history of accidents

It is set to accelerate the number of drivers with points on their licence from six million to 10 million.

The move comes as insurance bosses say that the proliferation of speed cameras is now so widespread that getting points on your licence is no longer an indication that a driver is a greater risk on the road - and that even motorists with up to nine points may not pay any more for their premiums.

Police in Cumbria are set to be the first county to take advantage of a recent relaxation in the rules governing the positioning of cameras.

Mobile camera teams will be able to operate on any road and will sometimes work in pairs, with camera vans placed a mile or two apart, to catch drivers who accelerate back over the speed limit.

Other speed camera partnerships - usually comprising the police, local councils, magistrates and road safety groups - are expected to adopt a similar approach if it improves road safety.

Until last month, police and local authority partnerships were forced to focus almost all their enforcement on roads where there had been at least three crashes resulting in death or serious injury in the previous three years.

But new guidance from the Department for Transport gives the police much greater discretion over how they use cameras.

Cumbria Safety Cameras said it was seeking "to create uncertainty in the driver's mind about where cameras will be".

It said it had cut deaths and serious injuries by 70 per cent at its 50 fixed camera sites but has found that serious crashes have risen elsewhere.

There were 59 deaths last year, up from 45 in 2005.

A spokesman for the speed-camera group said: "We need to tackle the behaviour of drivers who attempt to manipulate the system.

"The random element will mean drivers can never be sure that they will not come across a camera on a particular road.

"If they pass one camera van, they will have to think twice about putting their foot down because there could be another van down the road."

He said that Cumbria was adopting the new policy after studying research from Queensland, Australia, which showed that random camera deployment was twice as effective at reducing crashes as focusing on well-known sites.

Ministers have insisted that cameras are there for road safety, rather than raise cash.

That is why - under pressure - both they and the police have allowed drivers to have satellite positioning systems, which alerts them when they are approaching cameras sited at accident black spots, and reminding them to keep to the limit.

However, Cumbria's random approach means that these systems will no longer be as effective

Cumbria's own research found that 15 per cent slowed down only briefly at a camera site on a 40mph road.

This group approached the site at a speed of at least 48mph, slowed down to just under the speed limit for 300 yards before accelerating to at least 52mph.

Insurance bosses say they no longer assume that drivers with points on their licence are a greater risk on the road, because they are becoming so commonplace.

With more than 6,000 speed cameras on Britain's roads catching an estimated two million speeders each year, an unblemished licence is becoming rare.

The number of drivers with points exceeds six million - and is on course to top 10 million.

More than a million motorists are now just one conviction away from losing their driving licences while the number of drivers on the brink of losing licences has risen by more than 215,000 in the last 12 months alone.

The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety said: "Other authorities will be under pressure to follow Cumbria's lead if the policy works."

But Paul Smith of road safety group SafeSpeed said: "Modern road safety policy, particularly speed cameras, criminalises millions and actually increases road deaths."

Warden Charlie Maclean and council leader Steven Purcell
The wardens were part of a new approach to litter.
Litter wardens clad in body armour have taken to the streets after the launch of a zero tolerance clampdown on "grime crime" in Scotland's largest city.

The high-profile uniformed officers patrolling Glasgow's streets can serve offenders with on-the-spot £50 fixed penalty notices.

Littering, fly-tipping, graffiti and dog-fouling cost the city £16m each year to clean up.

The latest enforcement move is part of the £4m Clean Glasgow campaign.

Since the launch of the initiative in mid-February, the focus had been on an initial "heart and minds" programme aimed at instilling pride in the city's environment and getting people involved.

If you continue to act in this anti-social way, you will be caught and fined
Steven Purcell
Glasgow City Council leader

More than 1,000 volunteers have already taken part in 100 local clean-ups, with the help of the 185-strong Clean Glasgow team, which has also supplied materials and advice.

A Learning Communities Charter was introduced earlier this month, enlisting 80,000 school pupils, and other charters will follow targeted at the business community, major utilities companies and voluntary organisations.

Glasgow City Council also said 10 new mobile CCTV vans have been introduced and 200 new bins with cigarette trays have been provided in the city centre.

Council leader Steven Purcell said: "I have been delighted by the reaction of most Glasgow people to the campaign, but the fact is that increased enforcement was always going to be a vital element of Clean Glasgow.

"The message is: 'If you continue to act in this anti-social way, you will be caught and fined'.

"Make no mistake, there will be zero tolerance of litter, graffiti, fly-tipping, fly-posting, chewing gum and cigarette butts being thrown on pavements and people who refuse to clean up after their dogs.

"If you are caught doing any of these you will be hit firmly in your pocket."

Coming soon:

The speed camera you cannot beat...


Super speed camera Speed cameras you can't beat:
The battery-powered, wireless devices which don't flash and never run out of film...

Millions of motorists face the prospect of being caught by a new generation of speed cameras which do not even flash.

The digital cameras can operate round the clock as they require no film and can photograph the driver's face as well as number plates.

So the first a speeding driver would know about being caught is when a £60 fine popped through their letter box.

Campaigners claim the cameras, which are smaller and less easy to spot than the old-style units, are 'cash cows' that will do little to make roads safer.

Paul Smith, of the Safe Speed road safety campaign, said: "The fact that you do not know you have been flashed adds more uncertainty, which is never a good thing for safety.

"But a cosmetic makeover won't disguise the reality that the Government's speed camera policy is a failure."

A trial on the A4 Great West Road in London has already trapped drivers but they will not be prosecuted as the camera has not been officially approved.

Once they have been sanctioned by the Government, the devices are expected to be installed across the country.

The new device can be used forward or rear-facing so they can also trap speeding motorcycles, which only have number plates on the back.

The cameras, which can operate on battery power in case of a power cut, rely on wireless technology to send digital images to police so that the details can be processed quickly.

They can also be used to catch drivers who jump red lights.

Its makers, Truvelo, were given permission to test the camera at Gillette Corner, Isleworth, by Transport for London and is working with the London Safety Camera Partnership (LSCP).

A TfL spokesman said the trial was "openended" and would continue until the device was approved by the Home Office.

The number of people killed or seriously injured on London’s roads has fallen by 41 per cent since the mid-nineties.

TfL says cameras have played an important role in reducing the number of casualties, together with other road safety measures such as 20 mph zones, as well as advertising and educational initiatives.

About half of all motorists flashed by speed cameras in London avoid a fine.

This compares with a 100 per cent “hit rate” in areas including Kent, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, and a national rate of around 60 per cent.

All major speed camera firms - including Truvelo, Serco's Gatso, RedSpeed and Robot - have commissioned newlook cameras from Crown UK which designs and manufactures the devices.

Crown UK has sold more than 7,500 housings worldwide - 6,000 of them in the UK. The UK's network of cameras catches an estimated two million speeders each year and the number of drivers with penalty points exceeds six million.

New England Holocaust Memorial.

The version inscribed at the New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston, Massachusetts reads:

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Update 5th June 2007. The Home Office has informed UKCIA that they have sent the Talk to Frank "Cannabis explained" action update to the Department of Health to "review the content of the pack in response to your comments". We also learned that UKCIA is not alone in its criticism of this publication - see the KFx media blog.


bullet point One important subject is not covered at all in this booklet - that of contamination. The past year has seen an outbreak of "grit weed" - herbal cannabis sprayed with glass beads, sand and glass fiber amongst other things. This is a direct result of the police action designed to disrupt the commercial cannabis supply and has resulted in an unknown health risk.
It was the subject of a department of health warning in January 2007 which was carried on the Talk to Frank website. Hashish - the so-called "soapbar" has been known to be badly contaminated for some time. So why was this important issue not covered?

Cannabis is less harmful compared to legal drugs alcohol and tobacco in many respects and this is well understood by people.
Also, this government is well known for controlling information as well as telling lies in order to justify it's policies.
This is particularly true with respect to drugs.

Saucers in the sky
Personnel pointing in the air
UFOs were first known as flying disks


It's 60 years since the term flying saucer was coined and the most celebrated "extraterrestrial" episode - Roswell. Alien believers are dismissed as cranks, but even the earthly explanations of objects in the sky are fascinating.

Sixty years ago Kenneth Arnold saw something which changed his own life, the life of millions of others and impacted on popular culture like a shockwave.

Flying his plane near Mount Rainier in US state of Washington he observed a line of strange objects either crescent-shaped or disc-like, flying with the motion of a saucer skimming on water.

Arnold's sighting, quickly picked up by the press, was followed a fortnight later by the revelation of perhaps the most notorious episode in the history of UFOs, at Roswell in New Mexico.

UFO over Bulawayo in then-Rhodesia
1980, Rendlesham Forest: US airbase staff see strange lights in woods
1957, RB-47 encounter: US jet followed by UFO for 700 miles
1979, Livingston: Forestry worker sees dome-shaped object
1950, McMinnville: Farm couple photograph saucer
1961, Betty and Barney Hill incident: Couple see UFO and under hypnosis describe abduction

Having announced it had recovered a "flying disk", the Army airfield backtracked and referred only to a weather balloon.

What followed was perhaps one of the greatest conspiracy theories of all time, involving post-mortem examinations of swollen-bellied grey aliens, the cloning of sophisticated extraterrestrial technology and an epic cover-up. Or not, as the case may be.

In the 60 years since 1947's first major wave of sightings, thousands of ordinary people have claimed to have seen inexplicable objects in the sky.

When the Ministry of Defence released papers on its own investigations into the phenomenon in 2006, it was revealed more than 10,000 eyewitness accounts had been collected.

And for every sceptic who prefers explanations of weather balloons and freak atmospheric conditions there is someone who genuinely believes intelligent life is visiting the planet.

A national newspaper survey in 1998 suggested 33% of men and 24% of women thought aliens had already visited the earth.

Such polls are testament to the powerful impact of six decades of media coverage, disputed science, heated mythology and Hollywood films. We have now completed six decades of projecting our hopes and fears onto the UFO phenomenon.

Image of UFO
Many UFO images are less than overwhelming

David Clarke, a lecturer in journalism, has spent 30 years studying UFOs and the sociology of the flying saucer sighting.

He is no believer in little extraterrestrial men, but believes mainstream scientists should recognise the rational explanations for sightings are themselves worthy of study.

"They wouldn't touch it," he says. "It's got such a bad press. Anything that people don't have an immediate explanation for - it must be little green men."

The "ufologists" who study the phenomenon comprise both sceptics and believers. They seek to "resolve" each incident, explaining away each aspect. And there is a wealth of explanations for most sightings that is as fascinating for sceptical enthusiasts as the notion of space visitors.

Cold War projection

Sundogs, or strange refractions of the sun in another part of the sky, burning space debris, weather balloons, ball lightning, meteors, disc-shaped or lenticular clouds, mirages, even the planet Venus low in the sky, are all classic methods of resolving UFO sightings.

But underlying them is a need also to explain people's desire to believe that a UFO sighting can be explained by alien activity. The timing of the start of the golden age of the UFO, in a Western world recovering from World War II and gearing up for the start of the Cold War, is significant.

"We were projecting things to reflect our fears and concerns about the Cold War," Mr Clarke says.

Sundog  (Picture: Erik Axdahl)
Sundogs: Refracted image of the sun
Space debris: Burning satellites or rocket fragments
Meteors: Such as bolides or fireballs
Clouds: Lenticular or disc-like
Mirages: Hot or cold-air induced images
Stars: Such as Venus
Planes: Such as experimental aircraft
Ball lightning: Unpredictable brilliant spheres
Weather balloons: Classic explanation
Hallucination: Viewer under stress
Mass hysteria: Early explanation
Earthlights: Caused by electromagnetic fields in seismic activity areas

"Organised religion was in decline but when worried or concerned it is comforting to feel there is a greater power looking after us. It is quite nice to think there is another civilisation that has been able to overcome the things destroying our civilisation."

The UFO phenomenon is also linked with the modern reliance on conspiracy theories, a mixture of a need to believe in something more than the mundane in an increasingly rational world and an all-pervading distrust of authority.

As the Fortean Times, which this month dedicates an entire issue to the UFO anniversary, puts it: "UFOs fill a niche in the human spirit that thrives on wondrous ideas."

Earlier generations had also seen UFOs but without the term flying saucer in existence, they were labelled as other things.

UFO students say there are peaks and troughs in sightings that are probably based on cultural, social and political trends.

Expert Paul Devereux says a new golden age during the 1990s, particularly after the broadcast of the cult television series the X-Files, has given way to a current wave of indifference.

Mr Clarke concurs, suggesting: "It could be the case that post-9/11 people are more concerned about the threat from terrorism or the environment."


Mr Devereux has drawn on the work of controversial Canadian academic Michael Persinger and believes many unresolved UFO sightings can be explained by "earthlights", clouds of plasma being charged by strong electromagnetic fields occurring in areas of seismic activity.

Having nearly witnessed a UFO that could not initially be explained, Mr Devereux has dedicated his life to research.

"It bugged the hell out of me, almost gave me a mental breakdown. I couldn't make it fit into the everyday mundane world view."

Pilot Ray Bowyer was the principal witness to the most recent publicised UFO sighting in the UK.

Flying a commercial plane from Southampton to Alderney in the Channel Islands in April this year, Mr Bowyer saw two objects up to a mile across in the sky over Guernsey.

"I saw a bright yellow object, a light in the sky some miles ahead. I could see this specific shape of a flattened disc, like a CD on its edge, slightly tilted."


He says some of his passengers, as well as another pilot, saw the objects and he has been told they were picked up on radar.

Mr Bowyer's sighting may be a prime candidate for the "earthlights" theory, coming just days before the Dover earthquake. He accepts this as a possible explanation.

"I'm open-minded about everything. It would be a fairly perverse universe if we were the only inhabitants."

Despite the drop-off in interest in UFOs, the ufologists and their acolytes carry on their work, and the UFO-loving public continues to believe in conspiracies.

"No matter how much material the authorities produce and release the people who want to believe a conspiracy to hide aliens will never be satisfied," Mr Clarke says.

"It is such an emotional thing. They are convinced they are here, that they are walking among us."

Kevin O'Neill Is Innocent
When you kick me in the head

the stomach or more
when am lying on the floor

listen to my cries
say a prayer before i die
within these walls
for i'am an innocent man

fight to clear my name
when i drift to
the other side
and expose britiain's shame

these bars are not a home
so far from family
and loved ones alone
when am carried out in a box

don't pretend to be shocked
hand out the key
from these iron tombs
that remain locked

oh lord set me free
and remember my name

thinking how would you feel

22 years toss me aside
treat me like a dog
still they can't break
my spirit and pride

behind those wigs of law
overpaid mp's they hide
so remember my name

This Was Sent To Me By A Friend Who Is A Nurse
And This Incident Was Confirmed Within The Hospital

Were She Works . (By berlin)
Warning Warning Warning Warning
Share with your sisters, daughters, nieces, mothers, and female friends.

This Incident has been confirmed.
A man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female putting petrol in her car and left his card. She said no, but accepted his card out of kindness and got in the car. The man then got into a car driven by another gentleman. As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of the station at the same time. Almost immediately, she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her breath. She tried to open the window and realized that the odour was on her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the gentleman at the service station.
She then noticed the men were immediately behind her and she felt she needed to do something at that moment. She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for help. The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes after she could finally catch her breath. Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously injured her..
This drug is called 'BURUNDANGA' and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them.
This drug is four times more dangerous than the date rape drug and is transferable on simple cards.
So take heed and make sure you don't accept cards at any given time alone or from someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services.
