The sadden death of Mr. Tilden,
which was announced to the couiy
yesterday, we none the less a shock
because for years the tad event had
been predicted as possible to occur at
any time. The great statesman Lai
been nuieed into comparative strength
out of an almost hopeless and beipleea
condition of paralysis, and had been for
fo jr years past so cheerful in spirits,
to comparatively .strong mentally
and physically aa lo lead hU
most intimate friends to believe that
he yet had before him a few years
which he could devote to the great po
litical party, the success and con-
tinned usefulness of which had been
his one particular care since it was
lobbed of its choice of him for Presi
dent in 1876. bince that event he had
been held in veneration as first
among Democrats, the confidenti.l
adviser of the statesmen of the party
and its chief counsellor in times of
stress or emergency, a position never
b fore conferred upon any American
staUsmanby any partyi Unique as
it was, it had its special burdens,
but theso were easily borne by the Ie vel
headed statesman to whom a State wsb
but a multiplication of countus and
the nation of Slates all governed by
the same general principles. Mr. Til
den was born on the 9th of February,
1814. in the town ot New Lebanon,
fllolumbia county, New York, and was
ntlv in his 72d year when
called away. His father was a well-to-do
farmer of direct New England
stock, and thoiKh aa earnest dii-
ckle of Jefferson and an admirer aad

selves of the hospitality of
the sturdy Democratic firmer, at
whese fire side his great son learned
his first lossons of party direc.ion,
management and control. Receiving
the rudiments of his education at the
nnblic schools of Columbia county,
Mr. Tilden was sent to Yale in 1833
and thence entered the Univer-
mtr of Hew York, from which
he wai ealled to the bar,
In 1846 he entered upon his political
eareer and was elected to the A seem

tional Convention. In this, last bedy

commit sion, a majority of whom
were, of course, Rnpublicans, appointed
by act of Congrefs to decide between
the fiercely contendii-g parties. Mr.
Tilden was a great lawyer. He ranked
with the firat of hie day at a br noted
for its masterful ability. He was also
a great politician, a practical one, not
n the belittling and degrading sense
attiched to the ward "practical" by
men who excuee ballot box stuff-
ng, the robbery of votes
and the intimidation ot voters
when deemed by them essential
to the success of their prlnclp'es. He
was practical in the organization of
precincts, of counties, of districts, and
so of States, in knowing men and
knowing how to use them and in plan
ning for the extension of princi
ples by speeches, by letters,
by circu'ats and addresses con
taining Irrefutable information
that supported the c'aims and main

statesmanship lay more in the promisB

attention of pub ic men in all parts of
the Union and win for him the gen

ance of the Democratic nomina'ion
and others that followed on epeci.il
occasions all empbas'zed his right to
a title, that but few of the public men
of America can justly be crowned
with. They prov. d, too, the great loss
the country sustained in losing Mr
Tilden's services as President a loss
that became more and more apparent
as Mr. Hayes's incompetency became
more and more glaring. The crime is
now generally admitted by which
tbia loss was made possible and
the country has long since expressed
its sense of gratitude to the statwman
whose patriotic self denial triumphed
over the urgent appea's of mu'titudes
of intemperate cea'ots to whom his
f ncoesa wes more than the pesce and

little of him in politics fgiin
until 1866, when he was elected
chairman of the State Democratic
Committee, and iu 1837 when he
served as a metubor of the Contt'tu

that time he had become wealthy and
one of the rwognizsd Sias'erj of the

for 88 contt'-ellor by many of tha lead

He had attained to great inilaence as

prudently and mi'y for good public
purpose?, as iu 1869-70 when he was
active in orcan'ng the Bar Associa

1870-71 when he was prominent in
uncovering tie Tweed rascalities and
breaking up one of the most infamous
of the political rings that havo dis
graced New York. To the accomplish

the ultimate reBiilts are largely,

In furtherance of this purp:s3 he be
