In Wyoming Warning from New York Anart lilU-Political Note.. Louisville. Ky.. Nov. 7. The silver l"".en are still claiming the state, baa- Ing their contention on mistakes in the returns published from the First, Third. Seventh. Tenth and Eleventh districts. They Mate that exclusive of the Eleventh district, mistakes In sev eral counties chance the result sev eral hundred In favor of Bryan. From Clay county a letter from their county chairman Friday morning stated that the vote was MeKlnley 1,CC9. Rryan 635. or a MeKlnley plurality of 984 Instead of the published plurality of 1.100. From Knox county the silver chairman re ports the MeKlnley plurality 1.135. a difference In Bryan's favor of 10 votes. The secretary of the Democratic com mittee concedes that if the MeKlnley plurality In the Eleventh district ex ceeds 11,000, I'.ryan lses the state. The Republicans contend that this plural ity in the Eleventh district will easily exceed 11 11(11, busing their claim on the fact that they have Leslie county to hear from and also three precincts two In Clay and one In Letcher, iney concede the silver claim to the eyther missing county, Knott, In this esti mate. OIllHul Count to IrrlU-. The condition Is such now that the official count must decide and then the stnte canvassing board may have to canvass the official returns. In many counties the total vote is held back, only plurality figures being sent In, and charges of ballot box tampering fly thick and fast. The most Interesting development in the Kentucky situation is the probability that the entire vote of Owen county will be thrown out hv th utate canvassing board as a re sult f a direct violation of the elec tion law In that county Tuesday. A Democratic primary was held with the general election, the Democratic elec tion officers serving also as the prl i.iurv .dlicers. The Bryan plurality in thls'covinty Is and If It Is thrown out It mean the election of Colonel "VV.

Thursday night Chairman Jones of the Democratic na tional committee issued a statement conceding the election of William Me Klnley as president of the United States. Later in the evening Chair man Jones, In discussing the situa tlon, said: "What defeated us was the action of large employers In telling their men they need not return to work on Wednesday If MeKlnley was defeated. This unquestionably lost us thousands of votes, for men with ...woa n.t little ones cannot help being moved by a prospect which threatens to deprive them of work and eonse quent means of support. , "But we have won a victory Just the same, for t do not believe that any politic al party In this country will dare Include the word gold In Its platform In 1SW. Whatever happens, however., we shall not abandon our fight for sil ver, which Is a Just one. and one that I, bound to triumph. I think It will be the aim of Republicans to deprive us of an Issue on this Question, and 1 firmly believe MeKlnley will bend all his efforts toward securing interna tional agreement. He Is friendly toward ,.an t,. no doubt regard ing that. His public record proves .. . ..a it , ia ffinfi-onted with a free' silver bill-as I have little doubt he will be-I believe he will sign It.

No cause ever had supporters more brave, earnest and de voted than those who have espoused the cause of bimetallism. They have fought from conviction, and have foucht with all the xeal which convic tion Inspires. Events will prove wheth er they are right or wrong. Having done their duty as they saw It. they have nothing to regret. The Republic an candidate has been heralded as the advance agent of prosperity.

They believe that the gold standard is a conspiracy or the asralnst the welfare of the human race, and until convinced of their error they will contiue tneir warfare against It. The contest nas been waged under great embarrass ments and against great odds. For the first time during this generation nubile attention has been centered upon the money question as the para mount Issue, and this has been done in spite of all attempts upon the part lit mr fiininnrnin to nrevent It. The Republican convention held out the de lusive hope of International bimetal lism, while Republican leaders labored secretly for gold monometallism. Gold standard Democrats have publicly ad vocated the election or tne maianapo- lis ticket, while they labored secreny for the election of the Republican tlck- ace to private welfare and to public safety; before that vtar arrives me evil of the gold standard will be even more evident than they are now. and the people then ready to demand an American financial policy for the American people, will Join with us In the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of gold and sil ver at the present legal ratio of 18 to 1 without waiting for the aid or con sent of any other nation.

Castle of San Fran Cisco, charged with shoplifting, took place in the sessions house at Clerken wtll Friday, and resulted In Mr. Castle being acquitted and Mrs. Castle being sentenced to three months' Imprison ment without hard labor. There wa much Interest taken In the case, es pecially among the members of the Amei an colony, and several ladles ar rived in court together at 8:45 a. m. They Included among their number the wife of Chairman McConnell of th Clerkenwell sessions and a Miss Chap man of Kentucky - It was noticed that there were quite a number of Hebrews present, and during the morning a goodly number of artists representing different newspapers put In an appear ance for the purpose of making sketch es of the Castles in their strange sur roundings. The Jurors were of what Is known as the middle class, mainly shopkeepers. Hysterical Sobbing or Mra. ( alle. a i ln-.io the case was ouened with the names of the Castles being called by the court to surrender to their ball of $110,000. Then counsel for the defense took the floor, although Charles Mat thews, senior counsel for the prisoners, was not present. The decorous quiet of the courtroom was broken by the sound of hysterical sobbing by Airs. Castle, whose husband supported her In the dock. Roth prisoners were at tired In black and seemed to be weighed down with sorrow. Traces of deep suffering were visible on their faces. Mrs. Castle especially, appear ing to have aged consl Serably since her arrest a month ago at the Hotel Cecil on the charge of having stolen various articles, such as xurs. etc.. from different stores In this city. When Mrs. Castle had become some what more composed the business of the day w as resumed. Mr. Castle stood up calmly as the clerk of the court. In monotonous tones, read the Indictment and called upon the male prisoner to plead. Mr. Cantl IMeada Not Guilt). "Not guilty," answered Mr. Castle In a strong voice, as a flush passed across his face, only to leave him paler than ever. Mrs. Castle was then called upon to plead, but Mr. Clarke arose and said that bis client. Mrs. Castle; would plead guilty to all the Indictments, which were then read separately. Mr. Castle pleading at the same time not guilty to each separate charge, me iirnr was a distressing one. The sobs of Mrs. Castle were heartrending In spite of the efforts made by her husband to ooth her distress She was heavily veiled and rocked to and fro. moaning and hysterically sobbing. She kept a handkerchief up to her face through out, concealing her features from the inquisitive searching glance, of the newspaper artists and other present In court to Illustrate or describe the proceedings. After the wearisome work of reading the Indictment had been completed. Horace E. Avory opened the case for the prosecution. Tffttimony of Fhj lin. Testimony was Introduced by phy sicians who had examined Mrs. Castle to show- that she was not responsible for her action, and was suffering from a disease which caused nervousness and hysteria. Also that confinement might render the prisoner Insane. Sen tence of three months' imprisonment was then passed upon Mrs. Cast.e. The Judge added that he did so with the knowlt-dge that the sentence would ba revised elsewhere and the general Im pression which afterwards prevailed In court was that this means that the home office will shortly release Mrs. Castle on her own recognizance. Th unfortunate woman, on hearing the sentence, went Into hysterics, shriek ing: "Oh. my Cod!" "Oh. my God!" for nearly five minutes. She threw up her arms and staggered about, mut tering at times incoherently, and then shrieked In wild agony. At 1:45 p. m.. thanks to the attentions or tne pnysi ciins who had administered sedatives i,. hr Mr. Castle was calmer, dui tearful, and was able to enter a cab. accompanied by her husband and the thief Jailer, and started ror worm wood Scrubbs prison.
