Hie electric wires hav.e flashed the word of the na tion's loss to the extreme limits of our broad domain. Our first citi zen has passed away, and is at res with those who have before him discharged their obligations to tiieir God and to their country when duty called. Henceforth General U. S. Grant will live in the great heart of the American people as a true lover of popular liberty, and one that gave all his time and talent to perpet uate it. Much has been written upon the life tind services of the now dead General : much more will be writ ten and recorded as future ages shall realize the benefit of his ex ample and his virtues. At tins nour we can una no lines more suitable . to, the sad oc casion than those portraying the closing scenes of his remarkable life, at Mt. McGregor : . HOW THE IIEHO DIEL. Mt. McGregor, July 23. A few minutes before 8 o'clock Drs. Doug las, Shrady and Sands, stood on the cottage veranda conversing on the condition of General Grant and discussing the probabilities of his death and the limit of his lifeJMrs. Sartoris and Stenographer Dawson were... conversing a little distance away, when Harry, the nurse, stepped hastily upon the pi azza and spoke quietly to the doc tors. lie told that the General was very near to death" The medica men hastily entered the-room whr:re the sick man was lying, and ap proached his side. Instantly up on scanning the patient, Dr. Doug las ordered the family to be sum moned to the bedside. Haste was made, and Mrs. Grant, Mr. Jessie and wife, U. S. Grant, Jr., and wife, and Mrs. Colonel Fred Grant were quickly beside the sick man's cot. Mrs. Sartoris and Mr. Dawson had followed the doctors in from the piazza, and the entire family was present except Colonel 1 red Grant. A summons was sent for him, but he entered the sick room while the messenger was searching for him. The Colonel seated himself at the head of the bed, with his left arm resting upon the pillow above the head of his father, who was breathing rapidlr, and with slightly gasping respira tions. Mrs. Grant calmly, but with intense agitation bravely sup pressed, took a seat by the bedside She leaned slight!'' upon the cot resting upon her right elbow, and gazed with tear-blended eres into the dying General's face. She found there, however, no token of recognition, for the sick man was peacefully and painlessly passing into another life. Mrs. Satoris, behind her mother, and leaning over her shoulder, so witnessed the close of the life in which she had constituted a strong element of pride. Directly behind Mrs. Grant and Sartoris, and at a little distance removed, stood Drs. Douglas, Shra dy and Sands, spectators of a clos ing life which their efforts and council had prolonged. Opposite the bed from his mother, and di rectly before her, stood Jesse Grant and-U. S. Grant, Jr., and near the corner by the Colonel on the same side as Jesse, was N. E. Dawson, the General's stenographer and confidential secretary. At the foot of the bed and gazing directly down into the General's face, was Mrs. Colonel Grant, Mrs. U. S. Grant, Jr., and Mrs. Jesse Grant. While somewhat removed from the family circle Henry, the nurse, and Harrison Terrell, the General's body-servant, were respectively watching the closing life of the patient, their master. Dr. Newman had repaired to the hotel for breakfast and was not present. "The General's little grandchildren. U. S. Grant, Jr, and Nellie, were sleeping the sleep of childhood in the nursery room above, otherwise the entire family and household were gathered at the bedside of the djing man. The members of the group had been summoned not a moment sooner than was pru dent. The doctors noted on enter ing the room and passing to the bedside, that already a purplish tint, which is one of nature's sig nals of final .dissolution, had set tled beneath the finger nails. The hand that Dr. Douglas lifted was iasir growing comer tnan it naa been through the night, the pulse had fluttered beyond a point wher the doctor could distinguish from the pulse beats in his ow finger tips. The respiration grew quicker at the close .and also less labored and almost noiseless. This fact was in its results a comfort to the watchers at the bedside, to whom was spared an agonizing or other than peaceful death. The wife almost constantly smoothed the face, forehead and hands of the ding General, and at times, as a passonate longing to prevent the event so near would arise within her, Mrs. Grant press ed both his hands, and leaning forward tenderly kissed the face of the sinking man. Colonel Fred brant sat silently ana witn evi dent feeling, though his bearing was that of a soldier's son at the deathbed of a heroic father. Mrs U. S. Grant, Jr., was deeply moved but Jesse bore the scene steadilv and the ladies, while watching wit wet cheeks, were " silent as befitted the dignity ot a lite sucii as was closing before them. The General had passed five minutes beyond 8 o'clock, and there was not one of the strained and waiting watchers but who coulc watch the nearness of the tide to its final ebbing. Dr. '. the nearness ot the supreme mo ments, and quietly approached the bedside and lent above it, and while he did so, the sorrow the grav-haired aoctor seemea closely allied with that of the fam ily. Dr. bhrady also arew near, It was seven minutes past 8 o'clock and the eyes of the general were closing. His breathing grew more hushed as the last functions of his heart and lungs were hastened to the closing of the ex-President's life. A peaceful expression seemed to be deepening in his firm and strong-lined lace, and it was re flected as a closing comfort to the sad hearts that beat quickly under the stress of loving suspense. minute more passed, and as the General drew a deeper breath there was an exhalation like that of one relieved of a long and anxious ten sion. The members of the group were stilled, and each waited to note the next respiration. It did not come then. It never came There was absolute stillness in the room, and a hush of expectant suspense that no sound broke save the song of the birds m the pines outside of the cottage, and the measured throbbing of an engine that all night had waited by the little mountain depot down the slope. "It is all over, quietly spoke Dr. Douglas, and then there came heav ily to each witness the realization that General Grant was dead. What is the matter with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors of Graham county? We publish a note from Mr. Isaac N. Stevens, Chairman of the Board, to the edi tor of the Clifton Clarion, as fol ows : Clifton, A. T., July 20, 1885. Editor Clarion : My attention las been called to the garbled con dition of the minutes of the last session of the Board of Supervis ors, as furnished for publication by the Clerk, I request that you delay publication until a full and com plete copy of the minutes can be obtained. Isaac N. Stevens. Chairman Board of Supervisors. Graham county, Arizona. Mr. E. D. Tuttle, the Clerk, should read up, so as to avoid the unpleasant penalties likely to fol ow for the nonperformance of duty in his official capacity. Had we not obtained a certified copy of the action of the Board of Apache county, none of the minutes of the meetings would be obtainable the records having been purloined by robbers since the meeting. Every item of the transactions should be printed in the county paper, and there they become perfectly inde structible. The treasonable action of the Mormon leaders in Salt Lake City on the Fourth of July, in half-mast ing the national emoiem on tne public places, has called down up on their heads, denunciation from all the loyal press and citizens of the country. The act was undoubt edly premeditated, and a delib erate insult to the Government un der which we live, amounting to lit tle less than treason, and it should be punished as such. But bad as the action is, and disgraceful as it always will be to the national hon or its results may yet serve a pur pose. Those at a distance from the Mormon evil can see from this how insolent and defiant these vio lators of law have become, and may be aroused to a determination of stamping out Mormonism. This lias touched the nation's honor, and the insult will probably in the end be atoned for by the abolition of Mormonism. To us nothing seems more pertinent than the remark made to the leaders of the "Saints" in Salt Lake City on the Fourth of July by one who had been a com missioned officer in the Confederate army. He said to them: "Don't meddle with that flag. We tried it for four years and had to give it up and you had better let it alone." May the analogy thus presented to the mind by one who had been a part in the little unpleasantness be still further carried out by the speedy abolition of the last relic of barbarism in our land. The issue has now been forced by the Mor mon leaders in Utah. They plainly declare that if they cannot carry on the system which our laws de clare to be wrong, they will defy the law, as twenty-four years be fore, when our glorious Abraham Lincoln was at the head. Let not the government hesitate to accept this issue. Had the incidents of the Fourth of July taken place in any foreign country, an instantan eous explanation and full repara tion would have been required from Washington, and in case of refusal no doubt a Avar would have resulted. Such, plainly, should be the course at present, The bold stand taken by the Mormon City Council of Salt Lake City in in dorsing fully the treasonable action of the city officers demands a bold action, such only as can be given by the strong arm of the govern ment. That such action may be taken most speedily and decidedly, is the wish of every loyal citizen Anaconda Eeview.
