Tlie susjicttsion of t!»e Ikiily Chronicle again makes the Extkkpiiise the only daily paper in die county and reduces the number of towns in Montana supporting daily papers to five : Butte, Helena, Benton, Livingston and Miles. There is a nobility about &.muei I. TiMen's renunciation of the nomination to the presidency and ultimate electiou to that office. seldom evinced by an Ameri can citizen in public life. Above all con riderations of emolument or jietty ainbi-i tion, he lias devoted much of UW life to the reform of gevernmental abuses which came under his hand ; elected once to the highest office in the gift of the American people, he agreed to a compromise equiv alent to a renunciation to resene his coun try from the hnnk of a renewed civil war; now again the office is offered him, but bowed with the weight of years and hon ors and worn with pnysical ills (yet with a still keen mental power) he feels it his duty to refuse the great position. IIow few are tlie men in public life in America who feelipg the sun ef their existence ap proaching close to the western horizon would not prefer to die in the White House than as a private citizen! How few would say "a great work is to be per formed; I have not the physical strength to perform it tlmugh I could well hold the ]X)sition and enjoy high honor." When Samuel J. Tilden is laid m his giave the American nation will have cause to mourn ©ne of the noblest minds the race has ever evolved. TILDEN 1) KLEINES. Tilden has spoken. After a long si lence that has given rise to all manner of conjecture, the political idol of the American democracy sends forth a letter laying that his public career is forever closed; he cannot accept the nomination tollte presidency of the United States, though believing that such nomination is practically equivalent to an election. He fear» that it is liöw beyond his strength to enter upon four year» (neaily five, includ in g the canvass) of unremitting mental and physical toil in the work—of attend ing to official routine and of reforming systems established by over two decade» of misrule. He well knows the work that such an administrative policy im poses, for in overthrowing the Tweed ring m New York City and in reforming the itite government of New York he has had an abundant experience. Four years ago the same reasons, but in a lesser de gree of intensity, induced him to decline the nomination; since then those claims lia vc become imperative'. lie closes his letter with tlie following: ''I.ought not to assume a task which I have not the physical strength to carry through—to re form tlie administration of tlie federal government; to realize my own ideal, and to fulfill the just expectations of the peo ple would indeed warrant, as they could alone compensate, the sacrifice which the undertaking would involve But, in my condition of advancing years aixl declin ing strength, I fed no assurance of my alxlity to accomplish those objects, I am therefore constrained to say, definite ly, fhut I cannot now assume the labors of an administration or of a canvass. Un dervaluing in no wise that gift of heaven the occasion and the power sometimes be stowed upou a mere individual to com municate an impulse for good, grateful beyopd all words to my countrymen who would assign suqh a Iwneticeut function to me. I am consoled by the reflection that neither the democratic party »or the republic, for whose future that party is tlie best guarantee, is now or ever ean be dependent upon any one man for their successful progress in the path of a noble destiny. Having given to their welfare whatever of health and strength I pos sessed or could borrow from the future, and having, readied tht fwm of my ca pacity foe such labors as their welfare mow demands. 1 but submit to flic will of God in deeming my public casern forever dosed." .
