A DANGEROUS KIND OF LUNATIC
Kxpert Said JIlss Dickinson Wns Allllctcd
With Paranoia, Which .Might lie.
velop Homicidal 'leiieleuc'les.
Scranton, Ta., March SO. There was
a continuation of testimony In the Anna
Dickinson case to-dny. Two experts on
insanity, Dr. Meredith, ot the Danville
nsylum, ami Dr. Wehlcn, of this city,
testllleil that fiom the testimony and
from what they had seen of JIlss Dick
inson they believed her to be Insane.
They described her particular form of
disease ns painnoln.
A peison sufteilng fiom this form of
Insanity, Dr. Jleiedlth s.ilil, ts tile most
dangerous kind of 11 lunatic and Is likely
to commit homicide. Witness heard Jljsa
Dickinson lecture In tha Hioulvvay the
ater. New Yoik, In Apt 11, ISM, ami from
her lemarknble ellscoutse then hu
thought that she had paranoia.
Dr. Welilen, ot this city, corroborated
Dr. Meic-dltli with lespect to painnoln.
Hypothetical questions were put to lilm
coveilng what JIlss Dickinson had saiel
and done and he iinsvveicel that a per
son who noted and spoke In that man
ner was mentally affected and would be
subject to painno.it. Defense rested and
JIlss Jessie 'Wlntei-steln was called to
the stand In icbuttul. She xxas an nt
tendant ut Danville nsylum when the
plaintiff was theie, and swore that shu
never saw Anna act In any manner that
would Indicate that hhe was Insane.
Jlrs, JIcDonald, of 'Wilkesbarre, who
twenty-one ye.us ago was Anna's ti.iv
ellnff maid, claimed that she never saw
Anna net btiangely, but admitted that
she saw her about once a month for a
short time only. Then she was iiies
tloned about Anna's liking for whisky,
and nskeel If she had ever seen Anna
elilnk it. She nnsvvcied that It was. not
her business to watch what Anna dr. ink.
She was again nslced the riuestion, and
answered that If she saw some Ihiiild In
a gliiss she could not btvear whether lc
was whisky or not.
"Did you ever hear Anna say sieat
people were Jealous of her?"
"They were jealous of her."
"How do you know?"
"Why, from lemailts that were pub
lished." "Who wcro these people?"
"Whltelavv Held wns one."
"He was a man; what woman was?"
"Oh, tho women, 1 know nolhini?
about them. Some of the women stock
are of not much account."
The telegrams Anna sent to Jay
Gould, Itobeit 13. l'.Utlson nnd others
weie offeied In evidence. Anna was
then culled to tho bland to glvo rebuttal
testimony and court adjourned, it being;
