be salt that the testimony derives peculiar
value from the factthatall those whose state
meats weregivon to the reporter are politloly
oppoed to Qen Arthur It should also be said
before giving tho statements in detail that all
agree in saying that a boy waa born to v iiliztm
Arthur in Fairfield and tliattheboy was named
after Dr Cheater Aboll the family physician
anit a relative of Mrs Arthur
The year of William Arthurs arrival in Fair
field was oman remembered by Leonard D
Gear Mr Gear is a farmer lie Is 70 yeare
old and when the reporter called on him was
buaav manlInw a
WC1Teileelect Elder Arthur
said Mr Ger lie came hero to preach when
they was buildin tho now roentin house
There was a kind of a flabshaped vane with
1828 painted on it it was painted so bad that
th fellor as painted it was ashamed of it
Mr Geer rmnmbered that ho attended the
school where William Arthur taught that while
William Arthur was to Fairfield his wife gave
birth to a boy who was named after Dr Chaster
Aboll anti that this phyaieinn attended Mrs
Arthur when tho boy was born and had mar
ned her oousin When he heard that Yb
President Arthur was born in Fairfield Mr
Geor thought his name must be Chester Abell
Arthur and was surprised to hear that his
middle name was Allan
I thought there was somethin wrong about
it anyhow was his fInal remark
Salmon oule although eightyseven years
old Is very active both mentally and physically
But he is not quite so spry as he was two years
ago for one day about that time as he was
running after some hogs that were trespassing
he tell into a ditch and broke hI hip He was
repaired hut part of the bone protruded A
tow months ago he fell agaIn while driving
enttleandbrokeotl theprotruding bone He
came home and said he was mighty glad to
get rid of the darned thing anyhow l r Soulo
was at one time a school teacher in Fairfield
lie lived in 182 in East Fairfield about five
miles from North Fairfield where Elder Ar
thur preached But ho heart of Elder Arthurs
preaching there in 1828 ruin a man named
Sherwood who attended the Baptist church
Tho date was Iliad in his minl by the fact that
tiherwood helpod him to build a house in 182
I met him though cnntiued Mr Souls
who now lives at Fairfield Centre when they
had a groat disputation here Lofevre the
Universallet was on one side and Charnplin a
Methodibt and Arthur spoke against him Ar
tilurwuasmart talking man and asmartish
atting man and they had a great time of It
taikIu out there But Arthur told me after
ward Lelovre had almost convinced him lie
had a iri named Regina who used to be spout
in Bible verses nil tOe time thats the war she
took exercise He had a boy while he
lived here MT friend Dr Chester Abehi
toldmetheboywaitobe named after him I
supposed on that account that the VicePreei
dent name was Chester Abeli Arthur and wAs
surprised to bear that tie called himself Chester
Ahian Arthur
Calvin Abeil the brother or Dr Chester Abll
has a farm about five miles from Fairfield Can
tre lie is seventysix years old On inquiry
at his house ho was said to be out in the hlell
blasting rocks Just then however he was
seen returning on top of a load of bay having
blasted that morning siveral large rocks fle
rementberet Wihiiam Arthur vitry well
ito married saul ilr Abeli a cousin of
toy brother the late Dr Cheater Abahi Mr
Arthur gave birth to a boy in North Fairfield
Mr brother attendd her and I remember the
beT W55 named itfterltim
Diii you hear nt the time Chester A Arthur
was nominated for VicePresident that be was
born here
Oh yes We all around here know that be
was born in Fairileld
Do you know his full name
Voli I guess from his having been named
after my brother that Its CheaterAbell Arthur
Mr Abell was very much surprised In hear
that the VicePresIdent name was Chester
Allan Arthur
The reminiscences of Ormond Bradley were
about the same Remember him exclaimed
Mr Bradley Why I remember Elder Arthur
preaching Anna Hendricks tuneral sermon
about fIfty years ago
Other who wore spoken to remembered the
birth of a Chester A Arthur but supposed with
those whose statements are given above that he
was named Cheater Abeil Arthur after Dr Chea
ter Abelt
The most valuable statement was obtained
from Dr C L Cate of Brandon a town on the
Vermont Central Railroad about eighty miles
south of t3t Albany At the time William Arthur
moved to North Fairfield Cusa was ninu years
old and lived about a quarter of a mile from the
Arthurs house when a eon was born to them
Dr Cases statements deserve particular atton
tion because he is quite clear as to details and
because he 1 a citizen of high standing in
Brandon Histastesnrercflcted and his mental
faculties are vigorous Ills large library is lined
with scientific works the babt fiction and the
leading magazines ii is also a roan of must
cal culture and has studied several works on
musical theory and composItion lie Is a Ire
quent contributor to the liutlnud herald and
his articles are wrItten in a clear concise and
straightforward style Of all the testimony
gathered his was the most important lie is a
Baptist was a memberof William Arthurs con
greizstion and also attended his school
ElderArthur ho salt succeeded Eider
Spaulding in the spring of 1828 He moved
into the old parsonage about half a mile from
us which made us near neighbors for those
days All that year and a part of the following
year he taught school lie had tour daughters
when ho came to Fairfield The three oldest
daughters were playmate of mice I recoitact
that the ellest Regina was known as one of the
smartest little girls around In those days
peopie used to make fun of the Baptists and
one time while itegina and I were walking
home from achopi tciuthor a young fellow who
vna herding sheep near a brook called out to
her and asked If she didnt want to baptize one
of hie lambs sceordin to her father tashion
Without a word she clambered over the fence
took a lamb In her armsjumped intonpoof
with it and although tho water rose UbOTO her
waist she went through the entire crezuony
Shortly after Eider Arthur arrived heru the
school house where he preached while the new
meetiughouse was belnghuiit became too small
for the crowd lie attracted an they used to
have service in a large barn I remember the
first service in the barn perfectly well Tho
women sat on slabs on the barn floor the des
eons and their familIes took the stalls In the
stables the young men and women made them
selves comlotabl on the hayrnow while land
a few other y000gaters clambered up among
the beams and perched thore
Eider Arthur popularity led hi oongrga
tion to build him a new parsonage and in the
fall of 1829 my uncle gave the church a lot about
a quarter of a ml trout our house It was de
cided that whenever a member of the conar
cation could spare the time he should lend a
helping band on tho building O course in
these circumstances tiny would pass when no
work was doue at nil on the new parsonege In
tact the skeleton remained standing alt tim
winter of 29 and 30 and it wasnt
till the summer of the latter year that
the house was finiahed Thu skeleton of
tIme house was rather a cranky looking
concern and somewhat out of shape
because so many different people had worked
at it intlependeully of ene another In those
early days It was customary to christen Ito
skeleton of a house and repeat an appropriate
veree from one of tin rafters In accordance
wIth this custom we flautIsts alit some othea
from time neighborhood mssemiled one alter
noon late in thu autumn of 29 Just as the
young man we had designated was about to
mount the ladder an uncouth boisterous rustic
who wauted to have a little fun clambered up a
pole and holding on with one band while he
waved his cap with the other shouted

Elder Arthur and his faintly iieil in a bitt log
hut about a mile anti a halt frjn here They
moved into the new pareonage iii thu ailtilloer
of 1830 and I wits then in sum opt of theIr house
vretty much all the time with Regina and her
aistenu recollect distinctly iiiro was not theft
a boy in the family for iteina often wihsti for
a bgIhr sad abetti Ibal Urns my iuaiwgthsz
and mother used to tell my father that Eider
Arthur wanted a boy in his family
Well as it drew near to October I was told I
mustnt go tolEitler Arthurs houso so often and
when I asked for reasns I could get only
evasive anawers One day enrly in October
my grandmother mend mothler were away all
day and wore not home when it titan for
me to go to bed The next morning my mother
told rue that they hnd a little boy over at the
Arthurs My grandmothorcarne over from the
Arthurs soon afterward end said sho had been
dressing tIme boy
And think of it she said to my father in
rather a roproachfut voice when I announced
the boy to Elder Arthur he danced up and down
the room
littler Arthurs dancing with delight was
rather severely commented on by Imia flock for
In tiioqo days it was not thought consistent with
eccleshnetial duties to take a hopeful or joyous
view of life Regina thought tIme baby was go
ing to be just as bi as her boy playmates an
was very much disappointed to San how small
he was The next time Dr Aboil onled she
said to him referrlnw to his own boys who
were about my ago Doctor why didnt you
bring us a boy like your specimens at home
The boy was named after Dr Chaster Abell
and I was surprised when ho became promi
neat In polIties some thirty or forty years teller
theseevontatn hearhirn called Chester Allan
Arthur But Im sure he I the Chester A Ar
thur who was born at Fairfield You see until
Elder Arthurs death he came to see mae when
ever he passed through llrandon at intervals
of about coven roars We were In the habit of
speaking about the family and I remember his
referring to his son Chester the boy
who was born up there at Fairfield
when we were neighbors a doing well
at Union College The next time I saw
him ho said something about Chesters success
as a lawyer and so every time he referred with
pride to the boy who was born in Fairfield The
last time I saw Mr Arthur he spoke of Chesters
becoming Collector of the Port of New York
The family remained In Fairfield until about
1832 at leMt until Chester was old enough to
walk tend talk for I can remember perfectly
well seeing him standing in the doorway look

Tna CANADA aroaT
Those who maintain that the President
was born in Canada base their theory on the
supposition that time child born in Fairfield was
named Cheater Ahab Arthur They say that
tills boy died in Burlington and that the body
was given by the father to physicians to be die
sected for scIentific purpose Then William
Arthur is said to have come to Canada a second
time and to have taught school at East Stan
bridgo for eighteen months while his family
lived with his fatherinlaw at Meggs Corners
During his wifes sojourn there it is male
tamed she gave birth to tho boy who is now
rresient of the United 8tstes
The evidence upon whioh this theory is
based is very insumcient Lindol Corey a
reaident of East titanbrldge and 70 year
old says that In October 1830 WIlliam
Arthur returned to East Staubridge with his
eldest daughter Regina but without the rest of
his family and taught school there for eighteen
inonttis corey thouht he had heard that the
family iived at flagS a Corners with the Stones
and at the time ho bad heard Uncle Jack Baker
say that Elder Arthur had sold the dead body
of a son to some doctors at Burlington Mr
Corey could not remember that a boy was born
to Mrs Arthur whIle Mr Arthur was in Eust
Time reporter found considerable testimony to
the effect list Eider Arthur came to Bait Stan
bridge in the fall of 1830 wIth his eldest daugh
or and taught sehool there and that hIs family
was not with him But hIs teaching school in
East Stanbridge would not have Interfered with
hi preaching in Fairfield on Sundays and no
one in Stzenbrlmlge can sayot hiaown knowledge
tttatthie family resided with thubtone atMegga
Corners There are however several people
residing at Meggs Corner who remember that
the Stones did notcome there until after 1840
long after WillIam Arthur left Stanbrldgo
Uncle Jack Baker the old man whom th re
porter found breaking in a threeyearold colt
could not remember havIng told lair Corey in
1830 that Eider Arthur had given the bodr of a
dead son to physicians a Burlington Oranted
for arguments sake that Elder Arthur mild this
Thu boy at Fairfield was born In October 1830
The Elder could not hmtva given away that boys
body In Burlington in 1830 or earlier when in
1832 DrCsse usedto seethe boystanding In the
doorway of Cbs new parsonage at Fairfield and
looking up at him with his large dark eyes
According to Mr Coreys own statement the
boy wes supposed to have died In burlington
after William Arthur lett Fairfield Only one
boy belonging to WIllIam Arthur was ever
known to hnve been born in Fairileid and that
boy was Chester A Arthur and William Arthur
never was In Burlington between the time be
wee in Fairfield and In East titanbridgu
A Mr J II Corey who lives in Bedford near
East Sticubridge says he remembers that jteo
pIe talked abouta boy being born to MrsS ibjIarn
Arthur in Megg CornerL Of his own knowl
edge he can say nothing about the matter
All the evidenco gathered at East Stanbrldge
Dunham and MeggssCorners isof this nature
Alter William Arthur left Fairfield in 1832 he
went to Williston and llinesburgh where his
son William was born After that ho came to
thu State of 1ew lork
In order to dispel the doubt about the
Presidents middle name a gentleman lnti
matoly acquainted with the Lresidenta life
and family and of so high political position
that his reputation is more than natIonal
wits asked for an explanation He said
without a moments hesitation that the Presi
dent was named Cheater after Dr Chester
Abell Allan was the name of his grandfather
on his fathers side and his lather gave him
Allan for a middle name in order to have both
families represented in the full name Dr
Chester Abeli having been at relative of William

MusUa Career
The fluctuating prioe of mourning goods
inee the shooting of President Garfield affords
asignal illustration of the eagerness with which
tradesmen seek to profit by public necessity
There have been three or four occasIons re
cently when speculators have bought up large
quantities of goodawlth thedesignof cornering
the market Then the mliii would be set at
work to make up the deficiency Each time
that there was a report of the probabl death of
the President the mourning good would sell
rapidly It I reported that one man not in the
trade bought 250 oases of black prints for a
rise Another bought 150 oases another 100
cases The price of these goods rose from 4Y
cents to cents per yard flied it not been for
the longdelay before the death of the President
the market would have been controlled by the
speculators But every time the speculators
bought the market down close the mills got a
chance to catch up
Many of these goods have been spread
throughout the oountryamong small dealers
who saw a chance to pecuiat in a stapie ccii
Cl There was flerelor eleven weeks 01
preparation for the immense demanit that was
made upon retail dicier early yesterday morn

soiling at the ordinary rate soon saw their stock
decreasing so rapidly that they began to raise
the price and in many oases prices doubled

withouttbe medical bulletins has passed with
melancholy enough It has been a dar of the
greatest depression and of the saddest activity
here at Elberon Since the shocking word of
the Presidents death announced just before 11
oclock last night there has been no rest or Quiet
All night the watchers sat in the cottage
where the dead President lay The silent sen

forth over the beaten paths on the four lawns
surrounding the Franoklyn cottage From hour
to hour through the night Dr Bliss worn out
with watching paced along the bluff between
the cottage and the sea Mrs Garfield in her
chamber was heard walking the floor In sad

Dr Bliss early visited the Elberon for a cup
of coffee Hi manner showed that a train had
been released and he spoke wltha certain
sense of relief His face however was care
worn and the effect of the sleepless night wa
plainly seen as he sank Into a chair 1flis mind
seemed to dwell upon the heroie patience
of his late patient lIe was the great
set man I have ever cared 1lor ho
sa lie never complained and when asked
to take an unwelcome dose or submil to pain

tiniy if it is necessary Dr Dii4 spoke of
his ohaned appearance since deatk He is
emaciated and has that distressing sedavcroue
iookandthe light that ha left his eyes has
changed the whole expression of his face

in the fixed lines of the face as she arose
and went from the room At the door of her
chamber she broke quite down for the
first time She sobbed aloud and in her
first burst of grief shut herself alone In
