JOHN KYLE KKLEiUjEU.
The Facta In Hit Cane Completely Ex

At the final hearing before Magistrate
Lennon in Philadelphia on Thursday, the
caae against John Kyle, who was arrested
in that city on November 2, on a cliarg« of
appropriating to bis own uso. uionev obt ained
on a cheek belonging to Jacob Helntz of
Middletown, this State, was dismissed, there
being no evidence tosubslantiate the charge.
It came out in the testimony that Kyle was
met at Ninth and Market st reets, this city,
by Hugh McCaffrey, and asked to wait until
fc friend of his named Helntz came out of a
lawyer's office near by. When the latter ap
peared he had invited McCatl cv and Kyle
to accompany him to Philadelphia. Upon
arriving there, the three, went to a gam
bling den where McCafirey and Heintz
played until they lost
Helntz then tried to raise inouey ou cheeks
but was unable to get them cashed. Mc
Caffrey's attempts to get them cashed met
with no better result«. At this stage Hcintz
gave Kyle a couple of checks and said II he
get them cashed he (Ileiutz) would divide
the money among the three aud tney could
then have a good time. Kyle went to J.
Wesley Canary, with A. C. Yates & Co., a
friend of his,and got the cash on a check for
111.26 which he turned over to Helntz.
Another check he got cashed by another
friend, Thomas McCarran, $20, about two
dollars of which was immediately spent
there, Helntz saying at the time that the
money was to be divided between McCaffrey
and Kyle. McCaffrey, having received a
few dollars of the money left the other two,
who, after waiting for him for eome time,
came to the Broad street station to start for
all their monev.
Helntz then said as the money had
not been divided he wanted it, and calling
a policeman had Kyle arrested. McCarran
Who balled Kyle out, swore positively thu
Heintz said thut the money
was to be divided. At the hearing
a number of witnesses irom this
city testified to the tiuth and
honesty of Kyle. The whole trouble as far
as young Kyle is concerned,appears to have
been merely the result of his indiscretion in
keeping bad company. It will doubtless be
a lesson to him. The Hugh McCaffrey he
was with is the man who was prominently
connected with the bogus grave yard lnsur*
anee movement in this city a few years ago.
A SENATORIAL CONTEST.
Question of the .Election of the Repub
lican Senator In Kent County Md.
[Baltimore Bun Special. ]
Chbstbrtown, Md., Nov. 9.—The full
vote of Kent last Tuesday for Senator, ac
cording to the certificates of the judges of
election was: Burchlnul, Republican, 2,045;
Usilton, Democrat, 2,034; Burchinal's ma
jority. 11. By a clerical error on the part of
a clerk of election in the First district the
whole Republican ticket was allowed on the
tally-list five more votes than were actually
cast for it, and so the judges certi
fied. The discovery of this mistake
reduces Burchinal's majority to six.
The Republicans claim that the return
judges have no legal right to correct this
mistake after the certificates have been
signed by the judges of election, and the
only redress open to the Democrats Is to
contest the election. The Democrats con
tend that the return judges are not obliged
to certify to the correctness of certificates
t^em. There are other votes which were
thrown out on tlie night of the election,
and which the Democrats claim
illegally excluded. A sufficient number, it
is thought, were thus turned down which,
had they been counted, would have elected
Usilton by a small majority. The return
Monday next, when they
will decide upon the form of certificate
they will return. The ballots will prob
ably be recounted on that day or on Wed
nesday, and If, as surmised above, a
sufficient number have been wrongly
counted, Mr. Burchinal's election will be
contested. Mr. Usilton has declared that if,
upon a free and honorable count,it he found
that he has a majority of the legal ballots
cast, he will claim his seat. The return

the curiosities a little later, said:
"It may be of interest to you, ladles and
gentlemen, to know that the stories now
afloat concerning Mr. Moses' disposition oi
his angel wife's remains are totally false.
Not only is it true that he did not sell her
body, as reported, but it is also true that he
has impoverished himself to preveut the
desecration of her grave by stationing a
watch day and night over the same from the
day oi Interment up to the present time,
and It is only that he may be enabled to
coutinue this guard ol love that he consents
to exhibit himself and sell the few remain

I have sold Mrs. Moses' body and the only
way I intend to sell it."
"Then you do not fear her brother?"
"Why should I ? I have done only what
a man and a gentleman should do. I mar

mourn for her. The funeral Is mine, but if
I am molested by anyone it will be their
funeral pretty quick."

and Friday evenings of next week, the
Times of Philadèlphia says: "The moral of
'The Silver King' is commendable, for it
teaches the danger and misery of intemper

sustains the interest to the end. It is the
best melo-drama produced here in years,
and if the enthusiasm with which it is
nightly received by the large audiences
