DIED LAST WEEK.
Ex-President of United States Dies at
Age of Seventy-One?Burial
CJrover Cleveland, twice president of
the United States, died at 8:40 o'clock
last Wednesday morning at his home,
"Westland," in this place where he
had lived since his retirement as the
nation's chief executive, almost twelve
years ago. When death came, which
was suddenly, there were in the death
chamber Mrs. Cleveland, Dr. Joseph
I). Bryant, Dr. George R. Lockwood
and Dr. John M. Carnochan.
An official statement was given out
and signed by the three physicians,
gaving heart trouble, superinduced by
stomach and kidney ailments of long
Standing, as the cause of his death.
The statement says: "Mr. Cleveland
for many years had suffered from long
standing organic disease of the heart
and kidneys. Heart failure, complica
ted with pulmonary thrombosis and
oedema, was the immediate cause of
While Mr. Cleveland had been in poor
health for the past two years and had
lost a hundred pounds in weight, his
death came unexpectedly. Not one of
his four children were at home, being
at the Cleveland summer home, at
Tamworth, N. H., under the care of
Mrs. Perrine, Mrs. Cleveland's mother.
Although confined to his room continu
ously after his return from Lakewood,
it was not until yesterday that Mr.
Cleveland's condition aroused uneasi
ness on the part of Mrs. Cleveland.
Undoubtedly affected by the heat, Mr.
Cleveland showed signs of failure. He
became worse during tho night and
Mrs. Cleveland was called to the bed
side of her husband. The distinguish
ed patient sank into unconsciousness
from which he recovered at times only
to sutrhr a relapse. This continued
throughout the night and early morn
ing. The last time he became uncon
scious was about two hours before he
died. Death was peaceful. Just be
fore he died Mr Cleveland sought to
say something, but his words were in
The remains of the distinguished
statesman were laid to rest at Prince
ton, N. J., on Friday afternoon.

VOTERS MUST REGISTER AGAIN.
All the Voters In the Stute Must Be Reg
istered Anew During the
Attorney General Lyon lias given the
official opinion to the effect that all
registration in the several counties as
instructions for their guidance, but of
course the opinion of neither the attor
ney general nor the governor settles
the matter and there are others who
hold that under the act of 1!)08 re-reg
istration ;s not necessary and that all
that is contemplated in the act of 1908
is the-enrollment of the electors, in
order to discard from the registration
lists the names of those who have died
or moved out of the State or become
Unfortunately the constitution and
the statutes of tho Stale do not distin
guish very clearly between registra
tions and enrollment and the two terms
are used in the constitution and acts in
such an interchangeable way at times
as to make it confusing, but there is a
fundamental difference between the
meaning of the two terms and common
sense would seem to indicate that it is
useless for an elector who is registered
and who is still qualified to vote under
the constitution to be put to the trouble
of simply changing his obi registration
certificate. The constitution provides
for a re-enrollment of the electors
every ten years from 1908 and this be
ing the tenth year, an act was passed
at the 1908 session to comply with this
constitutional provision but in this act
the two terms, enrollment and regis
tration, were again not used discrimi
natingly, and hence the doubt which
now exists. However, the attorney
general is a strict constructionist and
he holds that all electors must register
again this year. If any one cares
enough about it he can take the matter
to the courts and have it finally settled
by an authoritative interpretation of
