RESIDENT CHESTER A. ARTUUR.
The newg of the death of President Gar
field found ita way to Vice President Ar
thur at bia residence In New York City be
fore the same was officially announced to
him by the cabinet. Ho had received
nothiun later than the evening bulletin and
was still in hopes ot the president's recov
ery when a reporter nought him. The re
porter as he entered the hallway said to the
servant, "The president is dead." At this
moment Gen. Arthur appeared in the hall.
'The presidtut is dead," the reporter re
peated to him. "Oh no! It cannot be true,
it cannot be; I have heard nothing.
"The dispatch has just been received at
the line office," said the reporter.
"I hope my God, I do hope it is a
mistake.' Gen. Arthur's voice broko at the
last words and his eyes filled with tears
He then retired to a back room, where
Messrs. Elihu Root and Daniel J. Rollins
were awaiting him. "They say he is dead,"
said Gen. Arthur. "A dispatch has been
received at the Sun office." A deep silence
ensued. A moment afterward a "telegram
was received; uen. Arthur broke it open
slowly. .Alter reading it ho buried I is
head in his hands and remained in. this
position for a long time. Meanwhile
the dispatch was handed slowly
around ; it was the mensage from the cabi
net informing the vice president of the
death of the president. By 12 o'clock the
sound of cabs rolling up in front of the
louse filled the street. A few minutes af
ter receiving the news of the president's
death, Gen. Arthur's son hastened up the
steps; he remained a few moments iu the
room with his father, but the latter was
still too much affected by the news to
It was 12:30 o'clock when Gen. Arthur
received the formal notification of the presi
dent's death, signed by the cabinet. He
had not then decided what steps to take.
He was again completely unnerved and
again buiied his face in his bauds.
In accordance with this dispatch, which
also advised the vice president to at
once take the oath of president
of the United States, ' messengers were at
once sent to the different judges of the su
preme court. The flnt to put in appear
ance was Judge John R. Bradley, who was
closely followed by Justice Donahue. Tho
party, consisting of the vice-president and
the judges named, besides District Attorney
Rollins, Elihu Hoot and the eldest son of
the now president, assembled in the front
parlor of No. 123 Lexington avenue, Gen.
Arthur's residence, where the oath of office
was administered and he became president
of the United States at 2:15 o'clock, that
In tho person of Chester A. Arthur the
fourth vice president succeeds to the presi
dency by the death of tho chief magistrate.
General Arthur assumes the responsibilities
of the first office iu tho country under cir-
cumstauces of great delicacy. Hm political
career prior to the Chicago convention had
made him obiectablo to a portion of tho
republican party, and his nomination in
Chicago was tho result of a compromise ; or,
more exactly, it was tho result of tho desire
of the victors in tho convention to placato
tho bitterly disappointed minority. Since
his inauguration he has nntortunately been
concerned in a political quarrel in which
tho leader whom he followed and tho per
son whom he now succeeds wcro arrayed
auainst each other. When tho funeral bells
toll, all other voices aro hushod, but it is
nevertheless true that thero Is a latent hos
tility to him in tho breast of many mem
bers of the party that elected him to tho
vico presidency. This embarrassmont' is
added to others of no trifling degroo, from
which he would suffer even if there were
no enmity to him in his own party. The
two facts that the vice presidont : bocoinos
president not by tho choice ot the people,
but by an event which they all mourn, and
that the administrations ot tbe three vice
presidents who have preceded him in the
succession proved unsatisfactory, would of
themselves deprive General Arthur of much
of that support that the hearty good will of
tho people affords, and which is of great
importance to the chief magistrate.
President Arthur will begin his adminis
tration with the eyes of a multitude ot cold
or unfriendly critics fixed upon him, and
with the affectionate interest of a compa
ratively small personal following, confined
for the most part to a small section of the
country. His judges are the people of the
United States, and justice demands that
tho judges divest themselves of prejudice
and prepare their minds to judge not only
fairly, but generously. It is to be borne in
mind that Genoral Arthur has been a na
tional character but a few months; ho is
comparatively u.iknown. In the state of
New York, where his life has been spent,
where his political and business careers are
well known, he is highly esteemed by re
publicans and democrats, those who differ
from him in politics admire him as a man.
To the country at largo he has become
known only through tho medium of a presi-
lential campaign, tho very worst medium
or conveying a correct impression of a
man. I lie candidate for office csnociallv
in a national campaign, is the turgct of the
unreasoning and insincere attacks of his
political opponents nnd the object of tho
most fulsome flattery nit the part of his
political supporters. It is difficult to say
which of these is the more apt to give tho
mblio erroneous impressions of the man.
One thing is certain, and that is, that while
the people of this country know all the
worst that can be said nbout the new presi
dent, they do not know the best that can be
said of him, for tho praise of a candidate is
more liberally discounted by the public
than are the attacks made on him. Kuow-
ing him only through the literature of a
presidential campaign, the people ot the
United States tuny rely upon it th.it General
Arthur caunot prove a worse and is almost
certain to prove a better president than
what they have heard ot him would lead
them to anticipate.
As for The Bulletin, it will, at all
times, endeavor to do tho new president
justice treat him like it does all other
public officials: praise him whoubedots
his duty well, when ho does it otherwise, or
neglects it, rebuke him. And it will cn
deavor to do tho latter, when necessary, noi
in a violent ranting manner, but in terms
that will command the respect of "the
honest thinking class" of both political

, Relief from Cooking. . ,
Philadelphia is developing a system
for relieving the drudgery .of house
keeping which over-worked wives and
mothers will thankfully ndvocaw s
plan, by the way, wbicu was adopted
in London centuriei ago, and is an old
established ouitam there. Family bak
ing ot meats, pies, puddings, cake and
bread is being performed by bakers at a
very modrato charge. Thus, for pios,
two cents apiece; for bread loaves, our
cent! a pan; for rice puddings, three
cents a pan; for a pan of roast meat,
flvecenia." By this method the food is
better cooked, and hours of tiresome
attendance on little cooking stoves are
saved. A largo amount of fuel Is also
saved by this plan. One baker and an
assistant cau cook dinners for a bun
died familie. possibly more, at an ex-
. .avert cents per lamilv.
The necessary pail of eoal and kind
lings for cooking a single dinner costs
rnt.i alone. This amount of
fuel must bo provided for . each of the
one hundred families, and In every one
of them the time and labor of one per
son for at least one hour will be re-
quired to get up each dinner, lhe
