The death of ex-President Arthur
:alls out the eulogiums upon his life
and character which during the prej
idica and strife of political crises was
strenuously withheld. Coming into
rational repute suddenly, favorable
public opinion was reluctantly giv n
she then, Vice-President. The bitter
controversy between the stalwart ele
nent of the party and President Gar
eld, immediately preceding the trag
c death of the latter, served to in
reuase the general hostility towards
President Arthur. Never did an un
:ried oficial enter upon such great
:nties as did Chester A Aathur when
soe took the presidential chair. The
sand of almost everyone was against
aim. He was even accused of corm
passing the death of Garfield. It was
penly declared that Arthur's admin
stration would turn back this coun
ry's civilization a score of years. But
juietly, modestly did the much ma
igned president take up the reins of
government. He at once arose from
;he pettiness of mere polities to the
;rand principles of statesmanship.
As his term of office drsw to a close,
few were found who had the cour
oge to sound his praises. In his dig
rified retirement his popularity has
ncreased and now at his grave his

great public services since:ely coLn
One result of the strike is likely to
be the application of the co-opera
tive plan to the pork and beef pack
ing business. This will afford a
thorough test of the co-operative sys
tem. Much interest will be taken in
it. The Minneapolis Evening Journ
al comments upon the matter as fol
lows: Thirty-five thousand dollars
on a plant to cost $50,090 have alrea
dy been subscribed by workingmen
and the incorporators are all Knights
of Labor. They propose to put in
practice also their own demand for an
eight-hour day. They expect to be
able to employ three shifts of 400 men
each, each shift working eight hours.
They will no doubt meet with stiff op
position from the big corporations
and encounter many embarrassing
obstacles in the general market if they
should attempt to compete there.They
ought, however, to have a very large
local trade among the working peo
ple of Chicago who can do much to
make this enterprise a success if they
will give it their extensive patronage.
It is not improbable that the K. of L.
brand may become the most popular
in the local provision malket of Chi
cago. If this experiment succeeds it
will give a great impetus not only to
the co-operative idea, but to th e
eight-hour movement, and may event
ually be worth to the workingmen all
that the strike has cost them.
THE gigantic immensity and exte'it
of the mail service of the United
States, is at the best, but faintly under
stood even by the people of this coun
try. In the report of Postmaster
General Viias, we find the following:
"In the matter of the expenditures,
performances and results, the postal
machinery of the United States ex
ceeds, in some points far exceeds,
that of any other nation on the globe.
The entire length of all the railways
employed by the United States mail
.service nearly equals the combined
extent of those of all other countries
of the world, while our other post
routes more than equal the total of
any single people, besides, and the
mileage of our mail transportation
exceeds by more than. 125,000,000
miles the service rendered to any
other government. The postoffices
of no other nation is one-third our
number. It is.estimated that I0;000,
000 more letters were mailed in the
United States last year than in;Great
Britain, and nearly that number more
than were minailed in Germany, France,
and Anstria combined. The propor
tion to each inhabitaitis tisiiated in
the United Statetsat b Great Britain
55, and Germany 19.

Mortality at Assinaboine.
From the River P ress correspondence
we learn of the remarkable mortality rec
ord at Assinaboine since the 1st of April.
More deaths have occurred there since
that date than during all the previous time
since the establishment of the post. There
have been three suicides, six accidental
deaths and six natural deaths during this
brief period. The latest victim is private
McDonald who opened the wrong door'
fell down cellar and fractured his skull,
from the effeCts of which he died in a few

Fort McLeod Gazette: Mr. Murphy, man
ager of the Powder River Cattle company,
has employed the greater part of his time
since his arrival in this country in looking
up new ranges, outside of those most gen
erally known, and his search has appar
ently not been in vain. He informs us
that he has found a country where there
has never been a hoof of cattle, and which
will do to bank on. The country in ques
tion is along the west side of the South
Saskatchewan to the mouth of the Red
-Deer, and up the latter over as far as he
went, and for all he knows further. There
is buffalo and bunch grass there in abund
ance, and Mr. Murphy is sure, from this
fact and the appearance of the country
generally, that the snow does not lie there
in the winter.
A Scenes at Dickinson.
Dickinson is one of the greaests14.pin
points for cattlimen on the oitiethe Pa
.fic. It is the heart atleOR e eunn
try, and in the fall of the year- the town

down upon the little community, and the
air was filled with the whoop of the whoop

the town and, with the desire to gaze upon

an hour, they adjusted their suspenders
and s'rode forth to gaze upon the show.
It was learned that eighty car loads of cat

The Admission of Washington.
Walla Walla, (Wash.) Union: One of
the results of the late election in the states
is to make the senate very close politically,
so close, in fact, that the political com
plexion of ths next senate will depend al
most entirely upon how Iliddleberger of
Virginia chooses to act. We dismi;ss, as
unworthy of serious cunsideration, the in
timation that Mitchell of Oregon will act
with the Democrats. Already the Demo
cratic leaders are figuring on increasing
the vote of that party in the senate by
aiding the votes of two Democrats frbm
the State of Wa hington. It is plausible
argued that Waslhington is Democratic
because two years ago it elected a Demo
cratic delegate and has just re-elected him
by a majority te tun times as great as that re
ceived when first chosen. This argument
receives renewed force when the returns
from North Idaho, a portion of the pro
posed state, are examined, and it is seen
that the I)emocratic candidate for dele
gate from Idaho received a heavy majority
from that part of the territory. Adding the
Democratic vote of North Idaho to the Dem
o:ratic vote of Washington makes the pro
pos.rd state appear democratic by ýt very
large majority. The senate has already
passed a bill providing for the creation of
the state of Washington out of the territory
of that name, with boundaries extended to
include North Idaho. All that is now nec
ess try to create the new state and two
democrats to the senate is for the house to
pass the bill as it left the senate, for Cleve
lani to sign it, for the people to elect del
egates to a constitutional convention, for
the delegates to frame a constitution, for
the people to adopt the constitution, for
the people to elect democratic state officers
and legislature and for that legislature to
elect Charles S. Voorhees and another
democrat senator, and the deed is done.
All this can be done before the opening of
a new congress on the first Monday in De
cember, 1887. We sincerely hope the
Democratic house will do its part during
the coming season to carry out this pro
gramme. Admission was never so near
as now.
Another Arctic Explorer.
HALIFAX, Nov. 28.-Lieutenant Pearcy,
who has been on an expedition to Green
land for the purpose of satisfying himself
as to the feasibility of traveling over that
country and thus opening a new route for
explorers, arrived here yesterday on his
way home in the United States. Landing
at the Danish settlement on the west coast
of Greenland, he journeyed eastward one
hundred miles over unbroken fields of
snow. He then returned to the starting
place. This was his principal journey, and
he was accompanied by the Danish offici
als. He made several short journeys
alone. His observations and experience
satisfied him that Greenland can be cross
ed from west to east by future expeditions
to the North Pole. On the one hundred
mile trip Pearcy and his companions had
to travel on snow shoes and haul sleds con
taining their provisions themselves, the
snow being too soft for dogs. The expe
rienced no hardships and returned to the
coast in good condition. On reaching a
point one hundred miles inland, the ele
vation above the sea level was found to be
7,500 feet.
Crows Drowned.
BrIMAncr, Nov. 24.--It is reported here
that seven Indians, Big Thunder, the Crow
chief, among the number, were drowned
while attempting to cross the Missouri
river at a point about 100 miles north of
s here. Big thunder was one of the most
famous chiefs of the CrJw nation, and his
son, White Eagle, is said to have been
with the party when the accident occurred.
The Indians were crossing to join a band
of their tribe which had started out. to
Swreak vengeance on the Sl1 x whq killed
a number of Crows several days ago.
