Court Gives Wife Decree
of Divorce She
CARRIES MOST POINTS
Pays No Alimony and Has Cus
tody of ChildrenEnd
Paris, Nov. 14. The tribunal of the
Drst instance of the Seine, Judge Ditte
presiding, today granted a divorce to
Countess de Castellane formerly Anna
Gould, of New York and gave her the
custody of the children, who, however,
will not be allowed to be taken from
France without the consent of their
father, Count Boni.
End Cane Suddenly.
The end of the famous case came
suddenly. The court thrust aside the
demand of the count's lawyers for the
examination of witnesses, and, as an
ticipated, the public prosecutor did not
even ask to be heard.
As soon as court assembled Judge
Ditte handed down ths judgment, which
is a sweeping victory for the countess.
In granting the petition for divorce the
court gave the countess the custody of
her children, the count being allowed
only the usual rights to see them and
share in the control of their education,
which was not contested.
hrrp.i TIiciu a .Month.
The count is given the right to see
the children at stated periods at the
home of their grandmother and keep
them a month annually during the hol
idays. The count's demand for "alimony al
lowance of $50,000 annually" was pro
nounced by the court without founda
tion in law, and rejected.
The only point decided in the count's
favor was the imposition of the inhi
bition on the countess to take the chil
dren out of France without their fath
The court appointed the president of
the chamber of notaries to liquidate the
affairs of the husband and wife. Judg
ment was given with costs against the
Could Not Ur Ilrard.
The decree, the reading of which
hardly consumed five minutes, was do
livered in a voice so low as to be prac
tically inaudible to the eager crowd
filling the court room. Many women
climbed chairs In a vain effort to hear
the decision, and when they were aware
the divorce was granted they seemed
to actually resent the loss of public
trial at which the people in high so
ciety would be compelled to testify.

Their admission is viewed as a step
toward an alliance between the two or
ganizations. Ailo'tlH Isabel Oes'ii.
Minneapolis, Nov. 14. The most Im
portant action of the second day's ses
sion of the American Federation of
Labor was the adoption of a universal
laoel design and of referring the mat
ter to the convention of 1907. This
action, however, was not taken until
after a lively discussion. Cigar mak
ers, printers and hatters lead the op
position, claiming they have spent
much money in advertising their re
spective labels and are deriving much
benefit as a result, which would be
lost weie the federation to adopt a
new genera! label.

informal gathering incident to the con
vention. Three thousand people crowd
ed the auditorium to listen to address

America, and John Duncan, first vice
president of the American federation.

T never have seen a more pitiable
wretch; Young Thaw has gone all to

him as it was the first time I had seen
him, and I was not prepared for the
fight. He is under a great mental
strain and it is only a question of howj
long he can keep It up. I told b'j

In some quarters there is an impres
sion that an effort will be made to
create popular sympathy for Thaw.
As a matter of fact, reports received
by the district attorney's office, which

his arrest, are to the effect that
Thaw's condition is improved by 50
per cent since he killed White. lie has

was unfortunate, and tho result. of it
was the result which always follows
presidential interference that is, dis
aster. "I think the outcome of the election
has strengthened Hearst. I do not
mean that it made him a greater presi
dential possibility, but ho is stronger
than ever he was in his own party. He
made a remarkable campaign. Almost
every paper in the state except his own
opposed him and the great run he. made
