THE telegraph announces the death
of the Hon. Charles Francis Adams ,
Sr. , son of John Quincy Adams , at
Boston , Mass. , Sunday morning hist.
-TllK "grim destroyer" seems to have
assumed an epidemic form and to be
playing havoc among the great and
"lowly alike , as the telegraph and the
local reporter attest , this week.
IN the reinstatement of United States
Attorney , M. E Benton , of the west
ern district of Missouri , who was re
cently suspended by the president for
violation of the executive order asainst
"pernicious activity" in politics , Gro-
ver lias indulged in thn squarest , most
pronounced buck-down of his adminis
tration. The boodlers are gradually
LIBERTY has had her torch lighted
at last. The administration hesitated
a good deal and haggled around trying
to get the shipmasters to say that an
electric light blinded sea-faring men so
much that it was worse than black-cat
darkness at sea. The administration
isn't to be blamed much for its opposi
tion. It doesn't want any more light
around than is absolutely necessary.
Ix a spelling match down in Kansas ,
a post-office inspector went down on
the first round. He is just about the
sort of a fellow to be civil service re
formed into a place where it is his duty
to see that other fellows know how to
write and spell. Another man who
kept him company in "his disgraceful
failure was a defeated candidate for
county clerk , but how lie came to bo
beaten , heaven only knows. Lincoln
IT ma } * not be general ! } ' known that
by the election Nebraska added another
county to the list. Box Butte by name.
The new county which was formed by
, the division of Dawes , contains some
thing over a thousand square miles of
territory , among which are many thou
sand acres of fine agricultural lands.
The Broken Bow extension of the B.
& "M. road bisects it from the east to
west , while the Northwestern is twenty
miles to the north. There will be a
heavy immigration to the Box Butte
country next year , and readers of the
Bee should keep the geographical loca
tion of the new county in mind. Bee.
THE announcement of the death of
Ex-President Chester A. Arthur , which
occurred last Thursday morning , will
be received with profound sorrow.
While President Arthur's administra
tion was not particularly eventful , and
while the president himself cannot be
called a reallygreat man , as greatness
is estimated , still he possessed many of
those grand , manly traits which endear
ed him to friends and evoked the ad
miration of enemies. It may be truly
said of him that he was "a judicious ,
a patriotic and a safe man , ' ' and that
"if the record he leaves is less brilliant
than some others , there arc none more
XKiis * MAGAZINE will appear
on the loth of next month under the
old and familiar name with a new man
agement. It will signalize its resur
rection by a reduction in the price of
$1 a year or ten cents a number. This
bold attack on the older popular maga
zines is a hold blow below the belt. It
gives them the alternative of reducing
their subscription price or biing handi
capped in the race with a youthful and
able competitor. Will they do it ?
Their prices are now too high. The
newspaper is now encroaching so stead
ily upon the province of the magazine
that they cannot afford to lose a point
in the struggle for pre-eminence among
IT is said' that the Law and Order
league of Sioux City , la. , intends to ask
the governor of the state to remove
from office Mayor Cleland ot that city ,
alleging that he is incapable and not in
favor of enforcing the laws of the com
monwealth. A little while ago the league
officers interviewed his highness , the
mayor , and asked him to define his posi
tion as to the prohibitory law and wheth
cr he was favorable to its enforcement.
Instead of replying like a gentleman he
told his visitors , individually and sever
ally , to hie themselves to that country
the existence of which Mr. Ingersoll is
inclined to doubt. The league men
refused to hie. Hence the trouble.
