WASIIINOTON , Nov. lb. fSpecial Telegram
totlie IJi.i.J : Cltl/onsof Washington were
startled this morning at seeing upon rising
fiom their night's slumber , Hags al half mast ,
nnil learning that It was a icipectful recog
nition of the death of their late piesideiit ,
Chester A. Arthur. It has been well known
liero that tlio health of General Arthur was
wi 'ckcd when Im lull tlm whllu house a year
ago March last , and that 1m suffered for
many months thereafter with gasttltK but
no ono waspiepaied to hear of his death ,
coming as It did without admonition. A
gentleman who saw Geneial Arthur two
months since Infoimeil your coriespondent
that tlm ex-president was In very fechlo
[ health and that his body was covered witli
' spots Indicative of blood poison , but
another wlio saw him less than n
fortnight since , reported that he was
very much Improved In health and would un
doubtedly bu out again during tlm winter and
was nhcady discussing business affairs. By
tils ainlablu qualities General Aithur won
many very warm personal friends In Wash
ington dining his Incumbency of tlm chief
executive chair , and Ids demise will cause
sincere regret in Washington. His friends
nnd enemies lieio wcro alike ardent and
bteadfast. Undoubtedly there will bo a gen
eral suspension of business hero on the f n-
jmial day. and the eitl/ens of tlm national
capital will join In mourning. To the sur
prise of most people , It Is ascertained now
that ex-President Arthur was not a
wealthy man , Ids possessions being
estimated nt less than 5100,000.
CniCAdo , Nov. IB. [ Special Telegram to
tlm Biti : . ] " 11 Is with greal I
heard tlm news of ex-President Arthur's
death , " said BoburtT. Lincoln loa reporter
to day. "It was no surprise to me , however.
When I saw him last July , it was manifest
that he could not live lone , although at that
time he did not seem tc consider himself as-
near death as he appealed to he and as his
physician told me ho was. I would not care
to give any lengthy expression regarding
him in this way. but I will say that although
my acmialntancu really began with my official
connection , not only did 1 learn to respect
him most highly , but to have great personal
affection for him. Ho assumed tlm presi
dency under circumstances very em
barrassing , and it has always
seemed to mo that ho over
came tlm dllllcultles surrounding him in an
admirable manner. While lie was an earnest
republican , Im was , above all , a patriotic eitl-
yen , and 1 know of no net of Ids In which he
did not liavu at heatt Urn public Interest. Hi ?
administration , 1 think Ills universally conceded -
coded , was. as far as ho was actually respon
sible , ublu and dignified. His ofliclal ap
pointments , on which tlm welfnru of the
country is so dependent , wcie always con
sidered by him with tlm gicatest care , and K
any of them were subject to criticism , 1 am
sure It was because of misinformation
given him. Ho was especially
caincst In carrying out not only
the letter but tlm spirit of the
civil service act which was passed during Ids
administration. In dealing with our foreign
relations he was as earnest and patriotic as
could bo desired. There was in his tlmo nc
need for aggressiveness , even it' those upon
whom the responsibility rests for keeping
our countiy ready for such action had so pto
vldcd that aggressiveness with foieign couu
tiles might not bo tlm cause of at least tern
poiary disaster to us. He clearly recognized
our situation In this tegard and especially
urged congress to strengthen his hands. He
was , In short , a president of whom the
country Is proud and for whom It may wel
mourn. "

that the event was not unexpected , For two

fTlieio Is something painful and sadden
ing In the dc.ith ot Chester A. Arthur at the
ago of lifty-six. Hu was horn In Falrfmld ,
AM. , in 1K0. ! His father was a Baptist doctor
of divinity , and a line classical scholar.
Chester's t-arly lito was one ot hard work , lie
was a barefoot hey who did farm chores for
liisliviiiK , in his childhood , but he never
made any tussnboutlt. Hu was a craduate
of Union colleiro. N. Y. , and paid lor his
education liimsclt by teaching in other ways.
In college he was tlm most popular of stud
ents. Tall , commanding and handsome , his
manners were at oncu dignified and winning.
Ho was courtesy itself to all. He had dark.
hiilliant ojes nnd dark , curling hair , ilo
was a lirst-class scholar , too.
Ciieat tilings 'vero piedieted for him. Ho
.studied law. again paying for Ids education
himsclt. When only twcntv-one he was
piiuclpalof a boys' academy at Noitli 1'ovv-
nal , Vt. He was sti icily economical , obliged
to be so. When ho had saved . " > 00 he beijan
tlm practice of law , first in tlm west then in
New York cltv.
Mr. Arthurs first days were his best davs.
Ho came Irom college full of enthusiasm
and detei mined to do richt at all cost.
Ho was intensely anti-slavery in his con
victions. Ho had hardly settled in Nnvv
Yorlc and was only twenty-two years old
when a law case was put into his hands that
tiled both his principles and his intellect. It
was the colebiated Lemmoii slave case , to decide -
cido whether , under tlm laws of New York ,
slaves wrought Into the state did not become
flee. Aithur took up tlm sidu ot tlm slaves
and won thelrcamo triumphantly. Tlm tiials
were carried tin from court to court ,
nnd Charles O'Connor was the opposing
counsel to him , but the bravo yonujr man
won. From thatdavon it was settled that
slaves brought into New Yorlc by tiiulr own
ers became free. Then Aithur took up thu
grievance of a negro woman who had been
put otf a street car on account ot color. He
sued the company and collected damages ,
and again from that day on , colored peonlo
had the rljiht to ride unquestioned in the
public conveyances of New York.
As a member of tlm stall of Governor Mor
gan , of New York , during tlm war , it fell to
himtocmiip icgiments of soldiers and for
ward them to tliu 1 rout. tie did tills admi-
i.ibly , and In this vvoik hogotthetltio of gen
eral. Tim title is n civil , not a mllitaiy one.
He was Governor Morgan's adjutant. After
wards 1m was collector of tlm port of New-
York and vice president. It is said to have
been directly opposed to Ids ft lend , KOSOOP
Conkllng's wish that ho accepted tlm second
place on tlio ( Jarlield ticket.
His election to tlm vico-presidcncy , his as
sumption of tlm duties of tlm presidency
when tlm lamented Ganicld was stricken
down by an assassin , and his defeat for tlm
republican nomination in 1SS-I. are matters
witli vvliich readcisof tliu Bin : are familiar.
Tlm split in the republican paitylnNow
York wrecked Aithur s fortunes politically.
Tlm bitter and tmal quairol that resulted In
consequence between himself and his warm
est friends dlstiesspd him and rendcied Ids
lifo not pleasant socially. Ho Is said to hav
had a h\ed bellet that tlm American people
had misunderstood him and not given him
his dues , and that thosu on whom bo lavished
tav or and friendship had turned aguhibt him
ami tiled to do film Injury.
Mr. Aithnr's wilu died in 1870. He was
devotedly attached to her and never le-mar-
iled. Ho lived alone with Ills ehildien , a son
and daughter , in his house on Lexington av
enue. His son Allan Is not greatly lematka-
hie , except for having broken a marriage en-
gairomrnt with a chauning gill while his
father wns president.

The Austrian Government Withdraws

WASHINGTON' , Nov. 18. It is learnel at

nmnt by thu president yestcnViy of Charles
Jonas , ol Wisconsin , as United States con
sul at Prague has no bearing upon the case
ol Keiley , wlio had been nominated as minis

dicate a puipoao on tlm part of either tlm
United Slates or Austria to recede from tlm
positions assumed in tlm case. Although
a statement was published at tlm date of
Jonas' original appointment last year that
tlm Austrian goveinment had refused his
exequatur on tlm ground that 1m had been
concerned in a conspiracy ntaiiiht the
life of tlm emperor , yet the charge
was cllectually disproved by Jonas , and no
objection was made to his appointment by
tlm Austrian goveinment on that scoie. Tlm
real objection was one entliely provincial in
Its nature. Jonas formerly ic-dded in Praguu
and was a member of ono of two powerful
factions into which tlio Inhabitants weio di
vided. His assignmcntto tlm postof United
States consul at that city was in consequence
lecelved with ill favor bv the faction to
which 1m had been opposed , and fids lact
was deemed of sullicient wclglit hy tlm Am-
tiian government to jtisttly an ( infection to
thoappointmcnt. Jonas returned fiom Kit-
io)3 ) betoie leaching his post nnd icpalied to
Ills home in Wisconsin. MoanwiiilothoAiis-
liian government had Inquired lurtlier into
the matter , and satisfied Itself that there
vv ere no substantial objections to the reception
ol Jonas , tlm piotest against tlm appointment
was withdrawn , and as Jonas was still urged
for the post by a laigo number ol Geimans
and Bohemians In Wisconsin his appoint
ment was yesleiday renewed.

fever was assigned as the last illness from
which the great jockey sintered. This maybe
bo so , but If It was , the onset must have been
unusually Insidious for dclhlum to li.ivo
supervened on I lie date mentioned.
The verdict of the juiy was
technically correct , but to the un-
selentllle mind It carries a stigma
which no one would wish to be attached to
the memory of the late popular jockey. That
lo was bereft ol his reason cannot bo
doubted. At the .s.ima tlmo wo would assert
that the latal cat.ibtiophe quite a sufli-

Th'1 current British Medical Journal fol
lows a str.iln looking to his severe
pihatlons dining tlm previous sK weelcs.

Visiting to-day , on the lleiald's account ,
the Noithampton races , L took occasion to
Interview there several jockeys on the sub
ject of the piivatlotis of reducing weight. 1
arrived while the first lace , the Ncwo handi
cap , was being run , wlilcli was won by
Charles Wood , on Mr. Kcnlrcw's Thunder
storm , After he dismounted and passed the
scales correctly , I spoke to him. Ho Is about
live feet two , with a robust , healthy appear
ance , inclined to bo slightly bandy , and was
wealing his yellow silk jacket and cardinal
cap. lie has for a number of years filled
the second place on the Hat ot winning jock
eys to Archer.
Ho said : "I never waste except for an
exceptional mount. Even then mv wasting
toldom exceeds tlirco or four pounds , \vhicli
makes me feel very weak. Try yoiirselt to
do without your ordinary food , taking in
stead Turkish baths and seidlitz powders for
a week , and you will also feel bad , I can tell
you. As to newspaper agitation to raise
weights. 1 think it improbable , as the present
arrangement ncrmits light weights to ride ,
which otherwise would debar them. "
Concluding , lie said ho was suio that wast
ing by physic shortens a jockey's life and
was one ol the causes of Aielmi's Illness and
I had just left Wood when 1 met John
Watts , dressjd In orange , with a purple belt
and orange c.ip , coming from the weighing
room to lido Mr. JolloiTe'sBonnioChailie , lor
the third race tlm mile selling ulatc. Watts
\\ill bo remcmbcied in Amcilca as the rider
of Keene's Fo < chnll to victory in the
biidgcshlre race. He is a tall , line built
young man , with light hair , blue eyes and
very gentlemanly spoken. He said :
"J never waste as Aiclier did. Jlo was con
tinually physicking himself. I get a lew
pounds weight off by dally walking exeicise.
On , Archer's feet were so vciy
tender he was unable to walk. During the
winter I only get to about iw : pounds , keepIng -
Ing my weight down by hunting , and just
bofoio the racing season 1 have only to ic-
diico myself about seven pounds. 1 have all
my life enjoyed good health , which 1 attrib-
u to to my walking eveicisu , and I
nm MHO II jockeys ceneially would exeit
themselves a little and walk Instead of icly-
ing on physic.tliey would enjoy health the
same as I do. As to lalsing tlm weights , I
am sine it would ho a great ndvantagu to
all heavy and middle weight jockeys'
health. "
At this point the boy brought liannle
Charlie to us , and \\lillo shaking hands to
mount , Watts leininded moot John Oslmrno ,
who Is OUT hfty years ol age. adding : "John
is tiding now as well as over , and tlm only
medicine ho takes is walking , walking. "
