The following is
The republicans of Nebraska declare
their continued devotion to the prin
ciples of the national republican
party , as expressed in the Chicago
platform , and as further defined in
thu letter * of acceptance of its candi
dates for president and vice president.
In the untimely death of our late
president , James Abram Garfield , at
the meridian of his life , wo deplore
the loss to the nation of a gifted and
accomplished man , a tried and trusted
Rarty leader , and a broad-minded and
progressive statesman. Ho was a man
of the people , and his experience and
wisdom in public affairs pre-eminently
qualified him both to maintain his
party's ascendancy and to conduct the
interests of the nation in an assured
career of triumph , until every issue
raised by rebels , by ropudiationists ,
and by cormptionists in the
public service should bo .settled
right , and forever . settled in
the supremacy of the nation , in the
Ireedom of the citizen , in the relief of
the people from undue burdens of tax
ation , in the permanent establishment
of a popular currency , in the settle
ment of the Indian ( juostion on a ba
sis of absolute security to the people
of the west , and in a governmental
administration , honest and economical
in all its departments and conducted
with business eflicisncy in all its
branches. We rejoice in the noble
personal character which our , lament
ed chief hns left aa a heritage to this
people , and in an example so whole
sale for the edification and emulation
of the youth of our land. Wo rejoice
in his example of temperance in all
thimpt-of fidelity to all domestic and
social obligations ; of nnuiicctod court
esy and dignity of demeanor , and of
unchallenged oflicial integrity. To
the aged mother bereft , to the wid
owed wife and her fatherless children ,
we tender our deopoit sympathies , hi
uul for them wo bespeak tlio con hiVI
solations of the divine love , tl
nd a nation's and people's at .
tyinpathy , protection und support.
To Chester A. Arthur , elected vice- tii
president of the United States by the te
ianio suffrages that made James A. an
Sarfield president , nnd chosen to bo
the nation's chief executive in wioh a
xmtingoney as that which has arisen ,
wo tender our friendly consideration fein
citizens of the stnto , and as repub in
licans wo pledge to President Arthur su
ur hearty support under the onibar-
aHsin circinnstaiiues which , through
10 fault or procurement of his , have
ittended hid accession to the chair of mi
itato. It is our conviction tliat in SCi
3en. Arthur , now our constitutional th
president , this nation lias a chief
jxecutivo equal to the unwelcome
iccesaity which in the Providence of
"iod has buea laid upon himVo
mvo conlideuco in ChcHtor A. Arthur
a citizen' of pure patriotism , of
Miiincnt abilitius , of sound political
iducation , of varied accoinplisluncntH ,
ind of unstained life , and u ropuhli- nope
an in whom there is no guile , Wo peen
mtcrtain thu expectation that ho will en
irovo to be a statesman capable of tit
jovoniiiiir the people wisely and well , titW (
tnd a leader under whoso loyal tjuidso
anco the party of the people will know
no such word as fail. Wo commend
President Arthur's inaugural utter
ances , that "nil , the noble aspirations
of myt lamented predecessor which
found oipiTMi'ons in his life , the
measures levied and suggested by him
to correct abuses and enforce economy
* * * will bo gavnored in the
hearts of the pooploj" and wo received
with satisfaction the assurance from
hia lips that it will bo President Ar
thur B "earnest endeavor to profit ,
and to see that the nation shall profit ,
, by this example and sacrifice. In
President Arthur's further utterance
that the president must , under the
constitution "answer for the
, just ox-
crciso of the discretion it permits , and
the duties it imposes , " wo rccogjitoo
a clear expression of the same princi
ple of executive independence and ro-
Bpoustbility which the , late president
'nfaintnincd with the approbation of
the people and with the endorsement
of the republican party. In
Gen. Arthur's letter of acceptance
ho vindicated the personal
rights of the citi/cns in political af
fairs , alike with his duty as a public
oflicial. Ho demanded business qual
ifications with integrity in public of
fice. Ho advocated measures of pub
lic relief for industries and classes
overburdened with taxation. Ho fav
ored national works of internal im
provement. In terms most explicit ,
moat earnest ; and most emphatic ho
set forth the duties of this govern
ment to "protect all Amcricancttizcns
everywhere in the enjoyment of their
civil and political righto. " In these
and other declarations of that able
and statesmanlike letter , wo recognize
the true gospel of republicanism.
Wu therefore bespeak and wo ex
pect' ' the utmost measures of suc
cess for the administration thus
pledged to a tpublie policy , alike
economical , humane , patriotic
just and pure' Wo dothis to
the end that the national republican
party may continue united in the work
of reconstructing the nation saved by
its counsel ' aiid ita arms. * tWoidtfJhis
to the'end that the democratic party
may never , a ain. dominate in a gov
ernment , which it souglil to overthrow.
That party'in ' every southern state and
in most of the northern , states , has re
pudiated sacred obligations relating to
nationality , to freedom , to financial
lionor , and to honest economical ad
ministration. To these supreme ob
ligations this people , through the re
publican party , stands forever pledged ,
and wo look with confidence to Presi
dent Arthur as with confidence , wo
looked to President Gariield for an ad
ministration which shall rssure the
continued success of the republican
party in its high and chosen mission.
Wo demand for the assassin of our
late president a speedy trial , in which
technicalities shall not' bo suffered to
overrule justice and the -public safety ,
and that condign punishment bo visit
ed on him for his causeless and cruel
act , and fte call upon the congress of
tho'Uriited States to enact a law mak
ing any violent assault on the person
of the president or vice-president an
: ict of treason , punishable with death.

comprehensive enumeration of the
irineipal pointu and facts from four
five French agricultural journals ,
ho figures from which do not diller
ssontially from those brought for

good harvest varies from one Imn- if
rod toono hundred and fifteen million
ectolotros mid moduratu one seven-
ty-six millions , This early in the
lonaoii the figures are necessarily prox-
imnto estimatiiiB , yet it clearly ap
pears that this year s harvest will bo
lomowhnt inferior to last year's , but
considerably in advance of those of
1877,1878 or 1870 , probably oigh't or
nine million hcctolotrcs loss than

1 CHIKAOO , Oct. IK A Washington
special nays : It is stated by a person
in a position to know , that Airs. Garfield -
field has requested Dr. Boynton to
withhold the statement which ho had
prepared relative to the autopsy and
the general treatment of the Into pre.s-
idontVi coso at aho was flatixllod that
jho president's wound was mortal and
she did not desire to have the contro
versy further prolonged. It is learned
from a source equally entitled to
credit that some of these who were
near to the president during his entire
illness , beside Boynton , weru nearly
ready with a statement similnr to that
which it was supposed that Dr. Boyn
ton hadiucontemplation. A gentleman
who has the means of knowing what
this statement would bo says that it
would , among other things , and
probably will contain , the following :
That from August 12 , the president
had imperfect command of hi ? men
tal faculties , and that ho had only lu
ck' ' intervals. Ho often found it ditli-
cnlt to complete sentences and his
mind would wander , toward the end
of nearly every attempt at ascntenco.
Many of the sayings attributed to
him were either misunderstood or
were not correctly reported from the
sick chamber. The noble saying "Is
it worth while to continue this strug
gle longer" is said to have orioinatod
in the president's wanderings , when

Niw YOUK , October 0. The Her-
aid this morning prints over a pngo
of Quit can's autobiography. It is an
illiterate r.xmbling and evidently in
tended to convey the idea that the
author in insane. Thu following is an
extract : "During the time that I was
pressing my application for the con
sulship I called at the white house
several times. I handed my card to
the door-keeper and ho would take it
into the house. The reply came back
on several occasions : 'Mr. Guitcan ,
the president BIIVH it will bo impossible
for him to sco you to day. ' I under
stood by the president's statement
that ho would not see mo to-day and
that was the statement that ho
scut through his door-keeper several
times because ho was trying graceful
ly to get rid of Walker , the present
consul. In ono of iny notes to the
president I askrd him directly , "Can
1 have the Paris consulate ) " and the
reply as usual came back : "Mr.
Guiteau : The president is very busy
and i-au't see you to-day. "
These interviews occurred several
days apart ; sometimes u week apart.
They all occurred during the time I
was pressing my application for the
Paris coiiNulHhip. The cano was pend
ing at the time I shot the presi
dent , and , as I have before stated ,
I confidently expected a favorable
answer when they got rid of Mr.
Walker. I understood by the presi
dent's statement that ho could not
see me that ho was trying in sumo
way to got rid of Wnlker gracefully ,
and that I should have ii. My not
getting the Paris consulship had
nothing whatever to do with my
shooting thu president. I shot him
tmrely as a nolitical necessity under
divine presnuro audit' h only'by
nerving myself to the utmost that 1
shot anyway. I have none but the
best of feeling personally to ward th
president. I always thouglr
of him and spoke of him
Gen. Gurfiold. 1 never ha
the slightest idea of removing Mr ,
Elaine , or any member of the admin
( stratum. My only object wan to remove
move Mr. Garfield in his oflicial ca
pacity as president of the Unite
States , to unite the republican party
and to save thu republic from goinj
into thu control of rebels and demo
cntts. This was the solo idea that induced
ducod mo to remove the president
I appreciate all the religion and senti
ment and honor connected with th
removal. I put aside all scntimen
: mddid my duty to my God and to th
American people.

SALT LAKU CITY , U. T. , October < J.
Orson Pratt , probably the best
known of the Mormon community
next to Brigham Young , died at his
residence in Salt Lake City this morn
ing. Ho was the ; Paul of the Merman -
man faith ; well educated , an unsur
passed mathemotician , he has spent
the whole of his lifo from early man-
lood in spreading the tenets of his
'aith. His writings , which are philo-
soppical and argumentative , are
uoro copious than those of any other
of tlio apostles , to which body ho be
longed , being the only ono of the
original twelve momborswho were first
ordained tby Joseph Smith. As a.
missionary , ho has , perhaps , traveled
further than any ono ot his co-relig
ionists. Ho was ono of the oldest
members of the church , having been
baptized more than fifty years ago ,
and was seventy years old on his lost
birthday. His fine cut features , hia
long , white flowing board , his sonorous
ous voice debating upon the the ful
fillment of prophecy will long bo
missed in the Mormon tabernacle.
Fur a number of years IIP has been
speaker of the house in the territor
ial legislature. His funeral will take
pjivcfljt'with. honors , at' the t
neiu riiftday thto firm tuj

Jtah is taking u prominent position ,
.nd the number of excellent oil paint-
ngs on exhibition is a surprise to
hose not acquainted with the num-
> er and skill of our artists. Most of
ho paintings are landscapes , drawn
rom the grand scenery of our procipi
ous mountains nnd rugged canyons ,

orical scones , and Mr. Weggleland in

Salt Luke is alive with bustle and
business and crowded with its country
Mitch talk has been occasioned dur
ing thu last few days by the destruc
tion , by some person ur persons un
known , of thu stock and fixtures of
MessrH. Aver it Murphy , saloon
keepers , who have been leading the
fight ugaiiiHt the high price charged
by the city authorities for liquor li-
oeiisui. During the night some ono
entered their place of business , turned
on all the taps , broke valuable fittings ,
mirrors , etc. , but took away nothing.
The property wasted is valued at from
$3,000 to 84,000. All manner of
speculations are rife on thu Hubjuct.
Ono rumor ascribes the act to over
zealous tompurniico advocates , of
whom there are a largo body in the
city , and who are much chagrined at
the protection nflbrdud the liquor
dealers by tlio United States judges ,
especially Chief Justice Hunter , who
they consider ia strangely incoimibt-
ont in his rulings in favor
of the liquor traflio. Others fancy
it is it method of advertising
uQoptod by the linn , who undeatand-
ing thu tidu of popular feeling , seek
to gain sympathy and custom by the
wise waste of u fuw gallons of liquor ,
easily exaggerated into the hundreds.
A third partv ascribes the action to the
police , who they imagine have done
out of revenge , for the loss of tlio
eases brought by them before thu su
perior courts , At any rate there still
remain fur too many places in this
city whore nil descriptions and quali
ties of alcoholic drinks are dealt out
with little or no restraint , owing to
the decisions of the courts.
