Uabama Woman Defies Govern

For a Siege
New York, Jan. 6. —Mrs. Ida O. Till
lan, the deposed postmistress of Gen
va, Ala,, defies the Federal Admlnis
ratlon in a message which she sent to
he New York Times yesterday, and In
rhich she says:
"I shall refuse to surrender iny office

f.sted, I have u corporation bond
sady. I have decided to go to jail If I

ared to remain indefinitely.
"Right after the visit of the inspec

got out among the pntrons of got
rong Indorsements certifying to my
llctency. I sent this list to Congress-
man Clayton, asking him to please file
it. I also wrote First Assistant Post
master General. I have heard noth
ing from them. All along they treated
me with silent contempt, never even
showing me the courtesy of acknowl
'After Mr. Kenan had been nomi
nated I wrote to Mr. Clayton asking
that my list of indorsements be re
turned to me. His secretary returned
them along with a lot of excuses about
Mr. Clayton being absent and could
not file them with the department, etc.
I then began to fight Mr. Kenan s con
firmation, and filed voluminous lists
along with other strong affidavits of
my efficiency and of Mr. Kenan's In
efficiency with the committee on post
offices and post roads.
"Nothing I could do was of any avail.
I had been ordered lynched without

splendid lawyers to defend ine, among
them Mrs. Inez Mllholland Bolssevaln
of your city. I feel that Justice must

New York, Jan. 6.—Lillian Slnnott,

Special to The Telegraph
Philadelphia, Jan. 5. Dr. S. Weir
Mitchell Is dead. The end came at 3
o'clock yesterday morning at his home,
1524 Walnut street. Influenza was the
direct cause of death, though old age
had a contributing influence.
Since the distinguished writer and
physician became 111, si* days ago, It
was generally thought that he would
not recover. On Thursday a slight Im
provement was noted In his condition,
out the mending did not continue.
Dr. Mitchell, whom ex-President Taft
once called the most Eminent physician
In America—lt was when Professor
Taft, then President, was in Philadel
phia and the guest of Dr. Mitchell—had
be.en practicing his usual pursuits
when he caught (lit l cold that caused
his death. He had been in good health,
considering his years, for he would
have been 85 years old on February 15.
Rose to Height* In Tw» Calling"
His death removes one of the most
versatile figures of all time, a man who
rose to the heights in two entirely
disassociated callings, literature and
medicine. Critics everywhere have
agreed that he was one of the most
notable writers of the age, and It is as
a writer that he was best known, but
yet his place in medical ranks was even
higher than In literature. He was con
sidered by many the worlds leading
nerve specialist.
Dr. Mitchell's life paralleled In many
ways the life of Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Both men were physicians, and both
were writers. No one disputed that Dr.
Mitchell was the much better phy
sician, and not a few inclined to tht.
belief that he was the better writer.
Holmes was a fast friend of Dr.
Mitchell, and the first work in writing
Dr Mitchell ever did, he submitted to
Holmes for an opinion. He then was
27 years old. The work consisted of a
book of verses. The advice he got was
to lay them on the shelf at least ten
years, nn<l If he Intended to keep on
writing to quit the practice of medi
Among his more prominent literary
works ure: "Francois Vlllun," "Charac
teristics," "Francis Drake," "A Ma
deira Partj\" "Dr. North and His
Friends, "The Autobiography of a
" The Wager" (a masque), and
The Red City." His medical w»rk has
been largely on the subject of nervous
diseases; soma or the titles are: "Clini
cal Wessons on Nervous Disease," "Rest
Treatment and Psychic Medicine,"
"Wear stid Tear." "The Involution of
the Rest Treatment," and "Doctor and

Irving Fame, Is Injured
Special to The Telegraph
Tarrytown, N. Y„ Jan. o.—William
Bailey, an employe of John D. Jtocke
feller, after reading about Washing
ton Irvlng's headless horseman, tried
to duplicate the story about 2 o'clock
this morning. Astrldo the horse and
with his head down in the big collar
of his coat, he raced through the vil
lage streets, terrorizing the few people
out at that hour.
Finally the police gave chase.
Bailey drove hia heels into the horse's
sides and spurred it on; but, as it
turned, it stumbled on the brick
pavement and fell. Bailey was badly
hurt. He Is in the hospital with a
dislocated hip and badly cut head.
