pj,' Cnuc the Vampires Crlef.
About the only persons who do not ap
proclnto tho humor of Count Honl's embar
rassment In being deprived of I ho futuro use
of his American wife's money aro the per
sons who havo been systematically swind
ling him for tho past tlvo years. Those
peoplo, who embrace unions their numbers
men and women of all gradou of social
prominence nnd obscurity In l'arls, aro on
raged over tho announcement uiado by tho
legul representatives of Ocorgo Oould,
who has been appointed guardian of his
fathor's estate, that their extravagant
claims agalust Count Ilonl will not be paid.
Hcury Cachard, of tho llrm of Coudert
Hroa., who aro looking after the affairs of
the Countess Castellane, told me tonight,
with convincing emphasis that neither
(leorge nor any other member of the Could
family Intended to pay all the count's debts.
"On tho contrary," said Mr. Cachard, "my
Arm will light stubbornly alt falso or ex
orbitant claims which may be presented to
us for payment."
This explanation, which Is made by ex
plicit direction of George Gould, has
thrown tho class of dishonorable creditors
who aro swarming about the count Into n
panic of rngo. It la not Improbable, that
tiomo of them will tako their claims Into
court and demand a settlement. Although
most of the swindlers will hesitate o
havo 'tho exact nature of some of their
transactions with tho count unveiled to the
public gazo, somo of the stories told of
plans adopted by thu swindlers who have
been preying upon tho llttlo count are
nlmost Incredible The dtshonorablo crod-
'fcj' Itors who are now clamoring for their
money seem to havo been burrowing Into
tho Castollnnu fortune as It It were u
Inexhaustible gold mine.
Ill Pleasure Cunt Much.
Not the least exhilarating disclosures of
the manner In which the count was plucked
of $4,700,000 of his wife's money, which ho
has squandered since 1605, relato to his
own personal pleasures. MBtiy of tho
claims against hlra are presented by per
. sons of both sexes who mcdo It their prni-
J. tlco to cater to his extravagances in
spired by his personal vanity. It Is
related, for Instance, that certain yachting
and hunting parties were organized by
somo of his creditors to gratify his desire
to Bhiuo as a man of the world who could
affard to pay for being entertained under
tho most exclusive and high-priced con
ditions. Only the fnlutcst echoes of some
of theso adventures bavo been permitted
to leak out, but they have bulllced to shock
ve'n giddy l'arls, which has llttlo regard
for tho conventional. When tho llttlo
ount found himself in want of roady cash
to pay for these pleasures It Is said to
bavo been his custom to give abnormally
largo promissory notes to tho promoters of
the enterprises. Many of these notes havo
fcocn discounted by money lenders In l'arls
and form u part of the enormous number
of claims which have been or will be pre
sented to tho Could family for payment.
This class of debts will bo disavowed by
tho legal representatives of the Could es
tate, as will also the claims of several no
torious usurers who preyed upon the little
uouut in tho most brazen way. but who
cleverly cloaked their transactions with
the air of legitimacy that will save them
from prosecution for outright crookedness.
Tho lawyers of the Oould family believe
that they can uuravel mauy of these trans
actions and show that they were consum
mated lu direct opposition to tho law. it
Is their purposo to do so if possible and
punish the Bwindlcrs.
I.nok on It out ii n I'ool.
The Impressions made upon Parisians of
a worldly bent, who regularly associated
with Count Ilonl, Is that he Is a man of de-
cldedly limited Intelligence, usually ac
Ar ccsstblo to flattery, inordluately vain and
always anxious to astonish and outdo the
wealthiest peoplo of Kurope. He courted
the attention of wealthy aristocrats and
vied with them In silly extravagances,
Consequently ho was an easy victim of
three or four separato gangs of swindlers,
moving In enttrel) dlfforcnt spheres, but
whose one common endeavor was a steady
ami remorseless plundering of tho Gould
millions over which tho little count exer
cised control. Tho first and most audacious
of theso gaugs of social pirates was corn

HE SNUBS QUEEN OF BEAUTY
llukr of Ittchnioml Decline to Ailil

Ills Curst 1,11.
(Copyright, l!:n, by Press Publishing Co.)
LONDON, Nov. 3. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) Mrs.
George. Koppel, admired by tho prince of
Wales, Is going to America with her hus
band to spend two months. Sho Is re
garded as one of tho most clever nnd
smartest women In Kngllsh society, Tho
prince of Wales is so enamored of her
beauty and wit that ho considers no party
complete unless sho Is ono of the guests.
This Infatuation of the prlnco has led to
tho usual upheavals In Kngllsh upper life.
Tho duke of lllchmond refused to have
Mrs. Koppel at his house, nnd In return
tho prlnco declined to go thero himself.
Hlnco tho memorable refusal of tho duka
nnd duchess of Portland to recelvn Lady
Ilrooks In compllanco with tho prince's
request, there has been no such sensation
Mrs, George Keppel, whom the duke of
Richmond refused to countenance it Good
wood house, Is the daughter of Sir William
IMmon Stone. Her husband Is a younger
brother of tho earl of Albemarle. Mrs.
Keppel Is the reigning beauty of Kcgland
und tho prince of Wales has Ming her
praises so that sho Is sure of her title.
In thn spring of ISS)9 Mrs. Keppel was on
the French Hlvlcrn, and there tho prlnco
became her devoted admirer. Sho took
advautngo of the fact to make her American
friends, Mrs. Potter Palmer and Miss Julia
Grant, acquainted with his royal highness.
Mrs. keppel has so completely won the!
prlnco that the countess of Warwick has
Jollied the has-beens.
George Keppel, tho husband who shines
In tho reflected light, Is tho Junior member
of u Pall Mall retail wine firm. It Is said
tho Keppel annual Incomo Is less than
J3.000, but the friendship of tho prlnco may
ho counted upon to boom tho particular
wine dealt In by Keppel's llrm. In splto of
this limited Income, the Keppels are very
smart and very extravagant. The prlnco
nover falls to add their names to tho lists
of guests which aro handed to him for np-
proval, according to custom. They spent
sovernl weeks at Marlenbad at tho same
hotel In which tho prlnco was a guest.
After tho duke of lllchmond refused to
add tho name of Mrs. Oeorgo Keppel to
ins distinguished guest list tho prlnco's
equerry wrote that Mrs. Keppel had been
received by tho queen and that, there
fore, thero was no reason why the plain.
bluff duke of lllchmond slimtid refuse to
bow to the reigning queen of beauty. IJtit
It Is pointed out that tho queen also re
ceived Lady Warwick, Mrs. Cornwallls
West, Mrs. Arthur Paget and many other
beauties admired by tho prlnco of Wales
and whose names were coupled with his
by gossip not always kind.
As Queen Victoria has a way of finding
out If thero Is real reason for scandalous
talk, nnd In such an event closing her doors
to the offenders. It Is said that tho atten
tion paid Mrs. Keppel by tho heir Is sim
ply of Innocent admiration. Those who
aro close to the prlnco say that this is
tho only reason for tho talk which has been
afloat for the past year, and as the prince
lives In a great white light, his every
movement Is commented upon to a degree
to which any other man In Kngland would
not bo subjected. The prince Is obliged
by tho vory nature of things to stand a
great deal of social boredom, and when he
discovers n woman who Is pretty nnd
bright at tho same time, ho Is foml of
spending as much time as possible In her
society. It Is his social and mental re
laxation from tho cut-nnd-drlid affairs of
his position as next to tho throne. The
fact remains that ho Is very popular with
all Englishmen, and while opinions differ
as to his gallantry, It Is believed that his
open admiration for a beautiful woman
whom be himself crowns as queen of the
hour is nn earnest plantonlc friendship.

Phtllpp's blank verso tragedy, "Herod,"
thcugh of fine literary effort and excel
lently produced by Deerbohtu Tree at Her
Majesty's theater, Is not llkoly to provo a
theatrical success. The dominance of
Herod himself, with his monomanlacal pas
sion for Marianne, combined with tho slow
ness of action and the unrelieved somber
ness of the story, render tho play tedious.
Tree undergoes a terrific physical strain,
starting at the boiling point and endeavor
ing to keep on raising the temperature.
Maud Jefferlea, while realizing all the
beauty of Marianne, Is not sufllclently ro
bust for the part. The one scene In which
the thrco nets transpire presented a won
dcrfully idealized plcturo of Oriental splen
dor and color, whllo the costumes were
gorgeous In the extreme.
Mrs. Pearl Cralgic's new society comedy,
"Tho Wisdom of the Wise," Is In re

Is expressed In Shelley's llneB: "The wise

tration of Lord Salisbury's contempt, alike
for public opinion nnd tho feeling of his
own supporters. Tho latter aro completely
dumbfounded by his calmly Ignoring nil
his ante-electlon pledges, that tho ministry
should be reconstructed on thu strongest
possible Hues. Salisbury has merely
shifted two quite undistinguished nnd un

of the War department and tho Admiralty,

to which Salisbury confines his chotco of

Influence for years on Arthur Balfour's

ring Is made numerically moro powerful,
gteatly to Chamberlain's chagrin and dis
appointment, as It Is antagonistic to the

aflllintlons. Out of tho 26,093 voters reg
istered in the two cities 14,333 recorded
themselves publicly ns republicans, whllo
only 8,347 admitted being democrats and
3.SS1 declined to give an answer. Tho re
, publlcnnB, therefore, show a clean ma
jority on thu registration lists of 1,933 over
all others, Including fuslonlsts and those
who gave no answers, assuming that all
the vote not recorded for any party Is to
be credited to tho opposition. It Is appar
ent from the ward returns that these gains
have been ovenly distributed throughout
the city and aro not peculiar to any oue
Rlsnppenrance of the Populists.
It Is worthy of mention In passing that
tho onco great populist party has been
rontracted Into 428 voters In tho two
cities still professing that creed and that
the so-called sliver republicans havo been
reduced to such n mero handful that they
have been thrown Into tho "no answer"
At the republican headquarters where tho
returns wero brought in nnd tabulated, tho
managers regarded the figures with the ut
most satisfaction. All efforts of the com
mittee hud been bent to get every repub
lican voter properly registered ns tho first
prerequisite to polling tho full republican
strength. The registrations shows that tho
republicans aro In shupe for tho final con
test at the polls, which they will entor with
a confldcnco based upon n substantial fouml
dation. The Incidents at the polling places during
the dny were much tho same as during the
previous registration days. Kvcrywhcro men
onca firmly outspoken as democrats came
out equally outspoken ns republicans, and
the number of now voters about to cast their
first presidential ballot expressing nn tnten
tlon to ally themselves with tho republicans
was particularly largo.
In tho Third preclnco of tho Seventh
ward, where Superintendent Olmsted, act
ing under Instructions of County Attorney
Shields and tho fusion managers, had pre
sented some twenty Inmates of tho county
poor farm for registration on tho second
day, an attempt was ninde to run In another
batch of paupers and Insnno people, but
the bonrd refused to recognize them.
Olmsted resorted to bulldozing tactics
nnd thratcned to procuro a writ of man

popular method of expressing patriotic re

vent In squirting water, usually dirty, from

by police regulations, so tho feather

CHICAGO, Nov. 3. Chairman Jones of
tho democratic national committee fur
nished the Associated Press tonight with
tho following statement, covering the out
look from his standpoint:
The fight Is won. liryan and Stovcnson
will bo elected. The denv crutl; majority
In tho electoral collego will be ample. Thn
democrats will hold all tho mutes thov
carried In ISM. with th possible nxoep

In n general vuy I should say that thero
will bo Homowhat of o falling off of Hryan's
Ktrungth compared with 1MK5 wrst of th
Mississippi and that cist of tho Mississippi
ho will make overwhelming gains. Ths
campaign has been a spirited ono trom th.i
stnrt. The democrats wero somewhat
hnndlcnpped for want of funds, while tho
republican, us four years ngo. had moro
money than they could use. Tho repub
licans havo endeavored to Intimidate labor
ing men and alorm builnesR men, but not
with tho fierce oppression they brought to
bear In Ml It Is my opinion that Intim
idation has been n failure this year and
that both worktngmen nnd business men
will vote according to the dictates of con
science. Of course tho trusts, tho creat nggrega
tlnim of combined capital, the seekers fur
franchises In Porto ltlco und tho Philip
pines, tho promoters and exploiters gener
ally havo spared no effort, and will spars
no effort, to re-olect McKlnley. It Is mv
firm bollef. however, that the electorate
cannot bo debauched this year to a sum
dent extent to throttle the public will. Thn
country Is nroui-od u It line not been lno
th days preceding thn civil war. The :
Mencn of the form of government estab
lished by the fathers Is nt stake. Whether
the trust shall govern tho country or the
country reirulato tho trusts must be de-
elded. It will bo found when tho votis
nro rounted that tho people have deter
mined with emphasis that tho republic must
be preserved, thnt the power of tho trust.i
must bo curbed; that th) man is to bn
considered before tho dollar and that thn
volco of the people ennnot bo suppressed
by attempted Intimidation or corruption.
The states that will vote for Mr liryan
will show that the peonlo have confidence
In him from the Atlantic to the Pacini,
und from tho northernmost to the southern
most boundaries of thn republic.
