Nw YoRK, November 1.-Ex Presi
dent Chester A. Arthur died at 5 o'clock
this morning, at his residence, No. 12:
.exington avenue. He had been ailing
for some time from a complication of
diseases, principally kidney affectiUn.
He spent the summer at a watering
place, and it was supposed that this had
strengthened somewhat his enfeebled
constitution. His death was unexpected,
it not being supposed outside his house
that he was in any immediate danger.
As soon as the news of Mr. Arthur's
death was made public many flags on
public and private buildings were placed
at half mast. Mr. Arthur had lived at
No. 123 Lexington avenue for twenty
years or more. A stroke of cerebral
apoplexy suddenly, but not wholly un
expected by the attending physician,
terminated his life. The stroke came in
his sleep, bctween Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning, and' he did not
ially thereafter. His death was painless
and slow, like the going out of a burned
down candle, and for hours before the
end came he was unconscious to his stir
roundings. His son and daughter, his
sister, his former law partner, Sherman
W. Knevals, and his closest friend, Sur
rogate Rollins, were at his bedside.
All reports to the contrary, Mr. Ar
thur's health has not improved during
his stay at New London six weeks ago,
and at his return on October 1st he was
no better than when he left the city. As
the time passed no permanent improve
ment came, and the physicians feared
some such sudden stroke as the one to
which he succumbed. in his enfeebled
condition even a light stroke of apoplexy
would prove fatal to the once robust
patient. With the beginning of the
present week a marked change for the
better set in. On Tuesday the ex-Presi
dent felt better and stronger than at any
time since he was taken sick, and com
mented hopefully upon the fact.
It was after midnight when his at
tendant left him alone in his bedroom,
and nothing was heard of him during
the early morning hours. He was noi
disturbed until his attendant entered hi
room at 8 o'clock yesterday morning.
He found Mr. Arthur lying on his side,
breathing heavily and could not roust
him. The family answered his sum.
mons, but failed to elicit any sign o
consciousness or recognition from tL
ex-President. In their alarm they sum
moned his physician, Dr. George A.
Peters, who has been in attendance upor
Mr. Arthur throughout his illness, anc
who responded promptly and at onc<
saw that he was suffering from astroke ol
cerebral apoplexy. A small blood vesse:
in the brain had burst and paralysis oj
the right side had ensued. From tht
moment this discovery was made al
hope was known to be of no avail, bul
no efforts were spared to bring the pa
tient back to consciousness. They wer
all alike a failure. Mr. Arthur lay mo
tionless and speechless all day. He knev
what was going on about him, for h(
squeezed his doctor's hand and put ou1
his tongue partly when asked to do so,
but he never spoke or gave any othe:
sign of consciousness.
Last night at 6 o'clock an enfeebles
pulse, more difficult respiration ani
other signs of physical failure indicatel
to the watchful eyes of his physician
that the end was drawing near. Th

President was conveyed in a telegran
from James C. Reed, the latter's conti

stated that General Arthur died thi:

POSTPONING TR FUNEIIAL.
In perfecting the arrangements for the
fiun.end of ex-President Arthur, it has
been determined to change the date of

A n,10GRAI'le A 1,SKETCH.
Chester Allan Arthur was born in
Fairfield, Franklin County. Vermont. on
October 5, 1830. He was'the son of the
Rev. Wm. Arthur, a Baptist clergyman,
who came to America at the age of 18
from the County Antrim, Ireland. Ex
President Arthur's early education was
acquired in the schools of Vermont, and
he finished his education at Union Col
lege, Schenectady, from which he was
graduated in 1849, taking a prominent
position in his class. After teaching
school for a few years he studied law,
and having been admitted to the bar lie
formed a copartnership with Henry D.
(ardiner, which was eminently success
ful. Ex-President Arthur was associated
with Mr. William M. Evarts in theicele
brated Jonathan Lemmons case in 1852,
in which the liberation of eight fugitive
slaves was sustained by the Supreme
Court of the United States, the argu
ments on that position having been made
by Evarts and Arthur.
Mr. Arthur early took an active inte
rest in politics as a Henry Clay Whig,
and was a delegate to the convention at
Saratoga, which founded the Republican
party of New York. In 1860 lie was ap
pointed engineer in chief on the staff of
( overnor Morgan, of New York, and was
afterwards made Inspector General and
Quartermaster General, which last office
he held until 1863. In 1865 Mr. Arthur
returned to his law practice, and soon
became engaged in politics, having been
appointed Collector of the Port of New
York in 1871, and was reappointed to
that office in 1875.
In 1877 President Hayes ordered Mr.
Arthur to resign his party position as
Chairman of the Republican Central
Committee of New York, with which
order Mr. Arthur refused to comply. He
was therefore suspended from oflice in
1878 and his successor confirmed by the
Sc-nate, although the special committees
appointed to investigate Mr. Arthur's
otlicial conduct found nothing on which
to base a charge of dereliction.
He was a zealous supporter of the
claims of General Grant to the Republi
can nomination to the Presidency in
1880, and, after the defeat of Grant, was
himself nominated by acclamation to the
-c Presidency, with Garfield as Presi
d at. On the assassination of Garfield,
in July, 1881, Arthur succeeded to the
Presidency, which position he held until
the election of President Cleveland in
.NICKELS AND PE NNIE,.
Ti: 'resent bupply Unequal to the Demand of
the Great Citien.
Dr. Kinball. Director of the 31int. stated,
in relation to the present great demand for
pennies and five-ecnt pieces, that the coin
age of pieces of these denominations is ex
e(uted at the Philadelphia Mint, but was
suspeuded on Febirary 16, 1-5, by order
of Secretary McCulloch, on the ground
that the amount outstanding wais redun
dent. In September last an unprecedented]
demand arose for these coins, which soon
exhausted the $56.000 worth which had
Ibeen transferred from the sub-treasuries to
Ithe MIint at Philadelphia for cleaning and
re-isue. Since that time the work of
striking new pieces has gone on without
interruption to the full capacity of the
mint, over and above the mandatory coiai
age of the silver dollar, and in order to in
crease the output of minor coins, the Phil
adelphia 3Mint's quota of silver dollars has
been redu'-ed. and the quota at San Fran
cisco an'd New Orleans increased.
The circulation of pennies is connined to
locaities where odd change is exacted by
-aya' of street railway fares, etc., and espe
Icialy by the extraordinary increase of late,
et only in the large cities, but in towns
nd villages of shops whose policy it is to
n i prices at odd amounts-that is to say,
a: prices not corresponding to denoini
tioas of subsidiary coin. Another eccen
tricity in the use of pennies in such stores
is the preference given to coin fresh from
the mimi, the use of which in change is
supposed to be pleasing to customers.
'rTe director is now endeavoring to ascer
tain the total active circulation of pennies
and five-cent pieces, and estimates that not
iesw than $7,000,000) worth are now in
active circulation in the United States.
The mint at Philadelphia is now turning
ouit minor coin to the value of $3,000 a
day. The demand for these coins is to-day
sonme $:(&J260) ahead of the supply. This
amount will soon be made up and the pub.
li want will be ftlly met.

THL LEES RISING.
T'wo in 1ih;;h Positions and Two More Coning.
For nearly twenty years after the war
the sons andI nephews of Robert E. Lee
lived in retirement, devoting their atten
tion to the tilling of the soil and seeking
no public notice. All at once, within the
last few years, they have come forward,
and just now it seems that they will soon
have a large share of the good things in
the way of oflices. General Fitzhugh is
Governor and has still higher aspirations.
He is already looking with a longing eye
upon tie seat of Senator Riddleberger.
and from the present indications it would
scei that his longing is likely to be
gratitied. The next Legislature is sure
to be Democratic, and there is hardly a
man in the State who would enter into a
contest with General Fitzhugh.
General Runy, his cousin, is Congress
man elect, and as it is the custom to re
turn a member two or three times in his
district, he has a good lease of office be
fore him. His small majority this time
will not hurt him, since it was due to the
security felt by his friends. Two other
Lees are now looming up and will proba
blv shine in the political firmament in
tle near future. One is General Custis
Lee, brother of Runy. He has never
before dabbled with p3litics, but since
the recent elevation of members of his
family it is said that he is waking up to
ambition. According to the programme
of the Lee entlusiasts, he is to succeed
Fitzhugh in the Governor's chair three
years since. This arrangement is a very
pretty one if it can be carried cut, as
Fitzhugh, by the Constitution of the
State, cannot be re-elected, and his term
..f oflice will expire just about the time
Riddleberger's seat becomes vacant. So
if the Governor steps into the United
States Senate and Custis into the Execu
tive MIansion at Richmond, there will be
no interregnum of the Lees.
Few people in Virginia know that
there is a fourth Lee who is likelyto bob
upi into politics. He is a brother of the
Governor and lives a very quiet farming
life down on the Potomac, in Staftord
County. He has never run for any office,
nor lhas lie ever taken part in any politi
al canvass. Now, it is said, he is to be
brought forward, partly as a means of
further honoring the Lee family and
partly to punish State Senator W. E.
MIeredith, of Prince William. Meredith,
it will be remembered, was General Lee's
most bitter opponent in the Cong-res
sional Convention, and his course came
very near defeating the General. Now
the Lee men propose to have the Gov
ernor's brother nominated in place of
3eredith for State Senator in the Alex
andria district next year, and thus ac
complish a double purpose.
If political conditions do not change
soon, the whole prormme for the ele
vation of tihe Lees can be carried out.
The Governor can go to the Senate; Cus
tis can take his place; Runy can stay in
the House, and the obscure Stafford
brother can go to the State Senate. The
only persons who object to this arrange
ment are the working-men of the State,
who do not take well to the old families.
