The Second Attempt to Have Her Removed From Her Position. A petition to the Board of Supervisors asking for the removal of Mrs. Gilmore from the position of matron of the City Prison is behig prepared by Frank J. Kane, Secretary of the Pacific Coast Soci- I ety for the Suppression of Vice. This is not the first attempt that has been made to remove Mrs. Giimore from her position and it is thought this one will be as use less as the former proved to be. The petition asserts that Mrs. Gilmore Das been using her influence against the Magdalen Asylum and in favor of tne Girls' Training Home and also that she has been guilty of theft in at least one in stance. Mrs. Gilmore emphatically denies that she has taken anything from the prison ers under her charge, and further makes a few charges her.«elf which will evidently not be overlooked it she comes before the Supervisors. Petty spite, it is cltumed oy her, is the reason for attempts to nave her removed from her i o-ition, bat according to tier statements i>he is ready and anxious for a thorough investigation of her ac tions and hopes the true status of the case will be placed before the public. Mrs. Gilmore said last evening: "I am unable to see wliy Mr. Kane snoaid at tempt to have me removed from a place I have so Ion*; and faithful. y tilled. lam under the impression, however, that he 16 merely a tool for others, who wisu to see me removed and have no reason tor so wishing except that it is claimed I have been here too long. Tne charges in t c THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23. 1897. afternoon papers are ridiculous. I believe that Captain Robinson of the police force is causing the trouble, and 1 mean to have this matter silted myself, now that it has gone so far. "Tbia ii not the first time an attempt has Deen made to have me removed, but no attention was psi<i by the Supervisors to former charges, and as I am still per forming my duty in a conscientious man ner I can see no reason why other charges will not b~* dismissed as well. '■I do not believe that any affidavits have been procured irom the girls who wero formerly under my charge. li so they are fnlse and I can prove them so. The statement made by Ada Nelson is enlarged to a great extent. I have told girls who left for the Maglalen Asylum :hat they should behave themselves or they would bj punished, but this was told merely as advice. I have not tried to frighten them in the least. "Ti:e alleged statement from Kittie McGrath that I was guilty of theft must nave been given, if given at all, while tho girl was under the influence ot some per son who is determined to nave me * re moved from my place. The truth of th»» matter is tha. Kittle waa in love with a waiter. Her lover had given he t - a silver spoon and a diamond breastpin. "She was anxious that her mother should not know where the presents came from, so she asued me if I would keep them until she was released next January. I consented, and the pin is the only jewelry I have belonging to any one who has been under my charge. I have kept it, and intend to do so until the girl comes herself after her release and asks lor it. "The statement made that I asked for clothes lor my daughter was infamous and a slanderous statement to help re move me; but I nra notafraid of investiga tion and hope ;he matter will be sifted to the bottom. If tui« is done I will be vin dicated and others will wish they had not eDoken." . Their Minds Deranped. Mrs. Hannah Davis, a ward of Rabbi Jacob Voorsanger, was committed to ihe Napa Insane Asylum yesterday. She was until re cently in a private institution at Liveimore. Phe imagines that an order has been made by the Government sending all the Jewish people to (Jermany. * Mrs. B. Delaney was committed to the same as.lum from- tne City ana County Hospital, where she had been a patient for s.veral weeks. Doble Mentally incapacitated. Dr. Cogswell riled a petition in the Probate Court yesterday asking to have Abner Doble removed as one of the trustees of the Cogs well Polytechnical College, situated on the corner ot Kolsom and Twenti-sixUi tureets. It is alleged th t Doble, by reason of injuries received several months ago, is iiow of un sound mind and that he is unable to longer attend to his duties as trustee. INTERNES MAY NOT BE HEARD Health Board Will Not Listen to Discharged Employes. Dr. Hart Says They Are Not Entitled to Any Appeal, It seems probable that the internes of the City and County Hospital, who were recently dismissed ostensibly because of insubordination, bat really because they gave out information to the papers re garding occurrences at the institution, will be denied a hearing by the Board of Health and will be compelled to rest under the stigma of having been sus pended for cause. Tiie ousted internes, Drs. MacMahon, Dunne and Rea, have asked members of the board, as individuals, to give them a hearing and an opportunity to clear them selves if possible. The physicians who comprise the board declare that as long as they have placed Dr. Sussdorf in control of the hospital bis authority sbould be supreme and that they do not care to reopen the matter, but advise the young doctors to try and settle mutters with the superintendent. They bint at different cbarees the phy sician in charge of th- hospital has made against them, and when told that perhaps the doctors who have been suspended can prove that they are not true, reply : "Well, the superintendent said so and be is supreme." Dr. H. H. Hart speaking about the sus pension sain: "As an individual member o! the Board of Health I do not think tbat the suspended internes should have any right to appeal to the board. "I moreover tbink that the position Dr. Sussdon or any superintendent of any place takes should be sustained by those over him. I hardly think, however, that the doctor suspended these three you physicians for giving notes of interest to the paptr?; there are many other and graver reasons. But as I said before, I shall oi p>se an appeal to this body of which I am a member." Dr.«. MaiMuhon, Dunne and Rea do not intend to be thrown out of their positions in this unceremonious manner, and in tend 10 right it to the end and if necessary they will bring it into the courts, but be fore they do th s they will nuiKe a formal appeal to t»« board for a hearing.
