Dortttt of Clicstcr A. Arthur. The death of cx-1'rcsldcnt Chester A. Arthur will c.iusn profound sorrow to the Amcnrnn ncoplo. Although his disease was generally regarded as dangcrou * , if not fatal , the announcement of his death was a sad surprise. General Arthur first acquired national prominence during the memorable con test over the New York eollectorship. The intense zeal with which Hoscoo Conk- ling opposed his removal made thn strug gle over the continuation of Mr Arthur's ' successor 0110 of the most exciting epi sodes it. the political history of the country nmee the war General Arthur's nommation to the > lco presidency , after the sovi'iMliis light in the Chicago con * \onlioilof 1S3J , was as much u surprise to himself a it wa $ In tin * republican masses , lie hail gone to Chicago as one of the 800 stalwarts who died with Grant , ' and had no idea of be ng madu a candi date for the ccnn < l place on the national ticket It was one of the strokes of political policy on tlio part of Kx-Oov * crnor Detinison , of Ohio , \ylio headed tl'u delegation fiom that Mate , and. was a peace-oll'ering on the part of General Oarficld's filends and supporters to the Conkllng faction. At the time a coii'idoralilo portion of the republican party did not reg.nl this ac tion as wise. The c uutidato certainly had no claim to so luili ; an honor at the bauds of the party. There was even a doubt respecting his ability to accept ibly disehaigo tlio duties of the position in the light of biib-tc- qticnt events , however , no one will ques tion that the choice of the convention was eminently judicious and who It did not immediatolv Satisfy tne stalwart element of the party , hut General Arthur un doubtedly e\erteil an mllucnci ; in finally bringing that element into action In sup port of the nnrty , thus .securing New York to the republicans , then believed to bo necesi.iry to the success of the party in the election. The period of national solicitude and borrow , while President Garfield lav in mortal agony awaiting the coining of death at Washington and Hlberon , made a poivoifut test of the character and pi- triotism of General Arthur. It was an opportunity which might liavo been taken advantigo of by a man losspatiiolic than ambitious.fieo I'icsident Arthur was publicly advised , and doubtless privately also , to assuniu the executive functions , which it was held the disability el ui-,0 of the constitution autlioi i/ed him to do. lie not only paid no attention to such counsel , but by his conduct gave assur ance to the people th if , nothing could be fat ( her from his thought , and tliat lie would become the president only .11 the event of the dcatu of tlio man whom they had elected to that ollicu This should have inspired public confidence in Gen eral Arthur , but when the time camn for him to take the presidential ollica the feeling was very general that it was an added misfoituno winch the- country would deplore. The administrition of President Arthur was not remarkably eventful , but very early in its course tlio public apprehension that existed respect ing it at the beginning gave place to a feeling of conndcnco that the untried and untrusted executive hail tlio wisdom to know his responsibilities and duties and the patriotism and courage to perform them. It is not too much to say that no administration binco the foundation of the government closed amid a more gen eral veidict of popular approval than that of President Arthur , and per haps his strongest endorsement is in the fact that a very laige clement of the republican party strongly desired his nomination for the presidency in 1831 , and believed that a fatal blunder was committed when this was not done. No man could have had a higher or justor ostim ito of the character of the ox cutivo otlico ot its dignity and its duties , its prerogatives and its obliga tions than did President Arthur , and while ho never allowed its rights to bo in vaded ho also never forgot that it belonged - longed to the people. There were no announcement ] durinir his lei m notitying the pp.oplc that at certain periods he would not ho accessible to them. Few presidents wore so faithful and indefati gable in the pctfornunco of duty , anil while ho was not by nature an aggiesslvo or stubborn man , ho had decided con vie- tionson i.ll questions of public concern which ho could lirmly adhere to when opposed. At the beginning of Ida admin istration tlio party in his own state was broken into hostile factions , and through out the country it was tilled with distiust and misgiving. His policy closed the breaches , rcstoicd conlidcnco , and the party again becamu strong , compact and hopeful , with every assiu.inco of success in the ensuing national campaign under a leader who could ha\o held it together. The two moil soiioiis mistakes in the publiolife of Chester A. Aithur worn his participation in the contest of lloscoo ConKling for re-election to the &enato after he had resigned in consequence of the issue with President Garlield , and the indirect intluenco which it was iillcgod he exerted in behalt of thu nomination of I'olger for governor of Now York. The former was due to thn lojalty of his friendship , which was a strong tiait of his charactnr , though ho hold it ir. sub jection after ho became piusidcnt. In the latter ease ho may have been piomptod by personal ambition , though the tiuth of Ilio clmtgo has been ques tioned. U will not bo claimed that Aithur was a great jtato-man , but ho was a judicious , patriotic und sale man , and thureforo especially suited to thu time and the cirmim&innccs in which he acted. If the icoord he leaves is lens biilliant than bomu others , llicru is none more honuiablc. AineiKlini ; Ilio hlnln Constitution , The iiiturns to thu secretary ot Htato i om all but two .small counties t > how that the proposed amendment to the constitu tion which provided for longer seisioiib of the legislature and higher pay of mem bers fulls about four thousand short ot n majority of all the votes cast at the No. vember election. Tin * ia the second time that I hid amendment has failed of the neeessaiy majority , although five-sixths of these who did vote , voted in its fa\or. This brings us to the question whether any amendment to the constitution xub- mitted at a general election would carry under the tilling of the supreme court that a majority of all the \ otcj cast for any ulficei at the election is necessary to make an amendment valid. In the cloven jcars since the present constitution was adopted , wo haVe \oted on ourht or ton amendments with the same result. The amendment to glvo woman the franchise was tcatly the only ono tliut dro\r out more thnn a majority of the entire vote ot the state , but in th.it instance the vote against the amendment was in the ma jority. On the amendment to cr" > ' n railroad commission which wa su mitted two jejirs ago the vote was bi.i cly a majority of all the votes casi , uuttlueo fourths of those who voted wcto oppose ! to the amendment. In view of the fact that the state has outgrown the present constitution , which was adopted when wo had a population of less than a quarter of a million , wo are now confronted with a serious prob lem. Wo mustcithcrgo without necessary constitutional revision or n now constitu tion n"'st uu framed. It is almost Imwur- ntivo that our judiciary should bo increased - creased , reorganized and paid salaries which will attract the nljlest'anii jnoat ' successful lawyers to thq'bo'tjch. The ex ecutive offices which are now lunitei' in number arc scarcolj * able to cope with the work with which they are biirde-noi ! as members of various boards , including public buildings and land commissions , the bogus niihoad commission and com missioners in charge oj the reform schools , penitentiary , hospitals for the Insane , hospitals for the blind , home for the filondless , deaf and dumb institute , etc. Our educational s\iem is deficient , expensive and cumbeisomo Wo neei ! a .stale board of education to innnage and control the entire system , beginning with district schools and end ing with thu university , it is snlf-oviileiit that those needed changes can only bo brought about by a constitutional convention. The only question is whether sueli a con-untion can bo sately called during the burly burly of the next legislature , which will waste nearly the litst half of the session in thu senatorial light and will barely have lime to make the apportionmentpass the liws which are absolutely required b > local wauls and make tutnropnations for conducting the state institutions dur ing the coming two3ears. A Sqmirc Uncle Down. The picsident has suiienderod to the Missouri pleasure in the case of M. E. Itenton , who less than a month ago lie suspended from the ollieo of United Stales attorney for the weslcin district of Missouii lor haingviolated the ex ecutive older against "pernicious ac- tivity1' in politics on the part of federal olllco holders. It is the liist conspicuous and complete back down the president has made. For thai end some other reasons it is peculiarly interesting. Alter reading the letter of Honion to the attnr- n'jy general any candid man will admit that his course was clearly in the line of "pernicious activity as defined by the terms and implied in the spintoftho president's order , or as ho is now pleased to call it , "warning. " By his own confcsiion lienlon made numerous political speeches in various places be tween September 23 and October 10 , and these were not delivered to "neighbors and friends , " nor woie the times and places "merely incident il. " They weio miido in puisnanco of requests of the democratic state central committee and of democratic candidates for congiess , and with the concurionce of the United States senators from Missouri. The ar rangement was effected with the full knowledge of all theay paities of the ex istence of the president's "warning , " anil it is probable that the question ot its consistency with tint order was dis cussed. This is Miggestod by the statement of lionton that ho relied for justincalion of his action upon the clause of the executive order which says that "individual interest and activity in po litical nflairs is by no means con demned , " and that "officeholders aie neither disfranchised nor forbidden to exercise political privileges,1' to which it is evident he gave a most liberal con struction. It is more likely , however , that ho relied mainly upon senatorial and other assurances of protection , and as the result shows not mistakenly. Theio could not bo a clearer case of the disregard and violation of an order which has been accepted and construed in two instances by heads of depart ments , as forbidding the sort of "per nicious activity" in politics of which Uonton was by his own confession guilty. How does the president explain tlio re 's crsal of judgment on Benton and jus tify his square back down ? It is to bo noted that he acknowledges having acted in the matter of suspension on ex pane evidence. A newspaper containing a list of lionton's engagements to speak was submitted to him and ho was "led to believe - lieve in many of the days specified the court was in session. " It docs not ap pear that he took any trouble to cor rectly inform himself , though ho mitrlit have doneso with very little expenditure of time or oh"ort. The fact was ho had no idea of what a hornet's nest ho would stir up in trying to nmkn nn example of a Mioiiri democrat , and did not sup pose , what he has doubtless since learned , that so binall n matter ua this would lose him tlio snppoit of that state , by no means assured now , In the next national democratic convention , But on n ie- examination of the case the president Roes to the other extreme , and accepts tlio Mutemunt of the suspended olllclal as conclusive. What that amounts to , in the way of defense , simply is Hint his politicwoik ] did not interfere with his being in couit when his services wore tequired tluiio. 1'hls is of a piece with the plea ot Mr. Vilas , in dolenso of Ins political wuikln Wisconsin , that thoio was no business in the postolllco depart ment -quiring i ( his attention Wo nro not infotmod as to the extent of the duties of the United .States district at touioy m we-atc-rn Missouri , but the posi tion must bo very nearly a sinecure If ho can Und time outside of its requirements to make a do/en political speeches nt numerous points fni apart in the eoiuso nf two wooks. It i evident in the letter jf the president that ho had some doubt * bout the ability of n man to do this lUthout neglecting his duty , but the mis- .thing was not btroiig enough to over- : omo his confidence in the "flunk tone" ind other convincing clmriictciistics of [ teuton's statement , naukcd by the de mand of Senator Vest and the assurance Jint a Cleveland delegation from Mis souri would bo impossible unless Benton was restored By this aetlon Uio prosi- lent has practically annulled his July 'warning" and opened tlio way for all Iho "pernicious activity1' ' in politics that my reasonable democrat can desire. \ll that an oillceliolder , being a demo- Tat , will have to do hereafter iato cstib- ish the fuel , for which it is presumed its jii-rdonul statumtmt will 'bo suOicleuti that his political work did not Interfere with hla official ( luiles , andhq will not bo interfered with. Mr. Cleveland Is hedg ing , and when n man bcclns this opera tion there is no Ulliug to what extreme ho will not go. go.bt bt lt)6rn ) Pnuts. The methods by winch tlio Omaha llerahl has been imposing upon advertis ing patrons both nt homo and abroad have been a proper subject for exposure , but wo have r6fralncd from comment , lirsl , because the Herald is in no sense n competitor of the IEE ? , and in the next place because wo wished to avoid even the semblance of jealousy and rivalry. But when the Herald goes out of Its way to couple with its impostuio a libellous .assault npou/ho Character of our "gpc- Clo.l" telegraphic service , wo feel called upon to exhibit the inllqtoi ! concern in its true light. The proof of tlio pudding is In the eat ing thereof. The false pretenses tinder which the Herald has been advertising itself as tl'o ' lending paper of this section liavo doubtless deceived parties who uo not know the relative standing of papers , but facts are stubborn things. The llemld advertises its weekly circulation at over ttOrO , but it h is paid from $1 to $1 23 pot week po tairo on its weekly edi tion , which shows conclusively that it circulates through the postollice out side of this county less than l.OOJ. Its weekly circulation in this county does not exceed 100 copies. In other words the weekly c'nculation of this ' 'great" paper is less than 1,100 copies all told. If wo are incorrect produce your postollico receipts and wo will apologi hand somely. On the other hand wo are ready to produce our postollleo receipts that show a weekly circulation of fully [ M.OOO exclusive of Douglas county. The circulation of the daily Herald which it is claimed by our blow haul con- temporuy lias increased in proportion mote than any paper west of Chicago during the pnsl year , amounts to less than 1,000 copies delivered by cai i let- in Omaha , where the BI.JJ dolivcis by camer between five : uid six thousand. The fact that the Herald lias always refused to compete lor the city advertising when a sworn statement of circulation was required shows that it is in no condition to compete for official business. With all its efforts of tlnow- ing Sunday papers into baci : and front yaids and donating thousands of papers to newsdealers all over the state Uio HcraM has uttuilv failed to laiso its regu lar subscription ciiculation bo. > onda pal try few hundred. While it keeps up its imposture by printing at its head the cl lim of "the largest actual paid clicu- lation of any daily in Nebiaska , " the fact icmaina that the BIE : ch culatcs mole papers in Nestern Iowa than the Herald does in Nebraska , and that the Bir , by its daily sworn statements covering a period often ton months , shows an increase of nearly fi.OOO dailies in that time , which is moro than the whole average daily circulation of theJicrnW And this cheeky swindle is kept up by the llciald fiom day to day and week to week. Facts aio very stun- bom things. Tlio failure of the Herald to inflate its circulation permanently by all sorts of devices has cau-cd the pub lishers , ns a necessity , to cut down the pi/o of the daily so that to day it , is the smallest motning paper in Omaha while the Bic : is the largest. Tlio i eduction in s'r/a is equal to noaily twelve inches of space on the. page or nearly 100 inches on the eight pages. The same Imposture is kept up about the telegraphic service , 'iho Herald has contracted tor the United Press ropoit at a comparatively low toll , and that re- poit , piintcd by nearly two hundred papers in the country , is rehashed as "special cable dispatches" and ' 'special telegrams" to the Omaha Ho aid. The greater portion of th s report is simply a duplicate , differently worded , of the reg ular press report , which the Ifcrnhl throws out purposely to deceive its pat- ions into the belief that it has 'freshor"ncw8 than any other paper. As a matter of fact the New York Herald special cable service which the Bii : prints exclusively west of Chicago and which iscopytighted to make it exclusive , costs the BKK more money every year than the cntiio telegraphic service of the Her ald. During the past two bunilaj s the BIE : has published more than 10,001) ) words of special cable service from the capitals of Kurope , and its American " .specials" wired to it exclusively by its paid agents at Washington , New lork , Chicago cage , DesMoines and Lincoln made up 10,000 words moro. If this biaggart und swindling concern deslies to compare telegr iph loll receipts , wo will accommodate them with great | ) leasuie. The amount paid last year by the BII : ; for telegraph tolls will moio than cover the telegraphic expenses of all the lailios m Nebraska. The taunt that a lispatcli which appeared in tlio llcnild ono morning appeared in the BKI : the icxt evening hardly justifies calling oui elegraphio service bogus.
