A MYSTERY CLEARED. Beatrice Special
to the Lincoln Journal : News has been re
ceived here that J. F. Chestnut , a former
resident oi this county was murdered in
Kansas' little more than a month ago ,
and that a man accused ot the crime is
held for it in. Illinois.-.Tho discovery was
brought about by circumstantial evidence.
The 15th oi last October Chestnut , with a
wagon and four horses , camped near Rice ,
Cloud county , Kansas. Four days later
his body was found in the Republican river ,
not far from wliere he had camped , with a
charge of shot in his head. Nothing what
ever was known of him by the people in the
vicinity not even his name. It was re
membered that on the evening Chestnut
camped , a man named Aaron Wells bor
rowed a gun to go hunting and that he
camo back with a horse the same night and
was not seen again. Inquiries were made
and it was found that he had shipped some
horses and a wagon to Augusta , Illinois ,
using another name. The Kansas author
ities proceeded to Illinois and found Wells
in jail at Macomb , as he had in the mean
time been indicted for forgery. The
missing wagon and horses were found and
among other things a watch and chain and
a bloody blanket. In a coat pocket was
found a , railroad mileage ticket issued a
Beatrice to J. F. Chestnut. In the watc
charm were the pictures of a man and
woman. These were sent to Beatrice , a :
the finding of the railroad ticket was th
first clue to the man's identity that
been discovered. It turned out , from th
description of the property found , and b ,
the picture sent , that the man was J. I ;
Chest. Wells was immediately accused o
the murder , and although he denied it , h
attempted thesame night to'commit suicid
in his cell by opening a vion in his arm. Hi
will no doubt be returned to Kansas fo
trial. Chestnutleft here lastFebruary an
had lived in this county about two years
He was about thirty-five years old an
when here was a farmer and trader. Hi
went from here to Beaver City-where ni
family now are. He passed through abou
the 10th"of October on his last trip.

YICE PRESIDENT'S BEXAIAS.
They Are Xald Aicay in tho Presence of a
large Croicd Distinguished Officials in
Military and.CMl Life Present.
The mortal remains ot Thomas A. Hen-
dricks , the fifth vice president of the United
States to die during his term of office , was
conveyed to tho tomb on tho 2d. Tho
event was mado memorable in many re
spects by the presence of a tremendous con
course of people from all parts ofthe na
tion to witness the simple rites which pre
ceded their interment.
Tho cabinet was represented by Secretary
of State Bayard , Secretary of the Interior
Lamar , Secretary of the Navy Whitney ,
Secretary of War Endlcott , and Postmas
ter General Vilas. The supreme bench of
the United States was represented by As
sociate Justices Matthews and Blatchford.
The United States senate was represented
by Senator Edmunds , Allison , Hugh , Har
ris , Conger , Blair , Dolph , Beck , Vest , Cam-
den , Vance , Jones , Voorhees , Payne ,
Palmer and Harrison. The committee rep
resenting the house of representatives was
composed of W. R. Morrison , Z.Blount , H.
A. Herbert , W. S. Holman , W. M. Springer ,
W. P. Hepburn. S. B. Ward , W. A. Phelps ,
J. J. Klemer , Thomas Ryan and P. Dunn.
Tho number of active and ex-members of
the lower house present in addition to
those named was very large. The gov
ernors of Indiana , Ohio. Illinois and Ken
tucky were present , attended by their
staffs and numerous state oihcers. Major
General Schofield , - chief representative of
the United States army , was present. Ex-
President Rutherford B. Hayes and Gen.
Wm. T. Sherman were distinguished cuests.
The scenes atthe grave were impressive.
There was no special restraint upon admit
tance to the cemetery and several hundred
persons had gathered about the grave be
fore the funeral party arrived. The body
of the procession had disbanded after pass
ing beyond the city limits and only the
military , with the mounted escort , entered
the cemetery. The space reserved about
the grave had only been defined by placing
a line of plants and evergreen twigs , which
was quite sufficient to protect it from in
trusion. Just before the head of the col
umn came up , the crowd was pushed back
still further to give ample room to friends
who were assigned to the side of the grave
from whence the column approached. This
order was cheerfully obeyed. When Mrs.
Hendricks , leaning upon the arm ofMr. .
Morgan , stepped upon tlle'matting placed
beside the grave , and before the casket was
removed from the hearse , she 'paused to
look down into the last resting-place of her
dead husband , only to see A picture of
loveliness in its lining of green leaves and
flowers. Then she turned to the grave of
her child , which had been made glorious
with a covering of smilax and flowers , and
read in letters of white his baby name
"Margie , " and on top of the grave , in a
field of white , in purple letters , the sen
tence , "And a Threefold Card Shall Not be
Broken. " The tender love which she dis
cerned in this treatment of her treasure by
sympathetic friends seemed to give her
courage for her last ordeal. Herglancethen
caught the monument with its drapery of
national Higs enveloping thelifelikeportrait
of her husband facing the grave , and she
turned with the bravery of heroism to wit
ness the last rites. There had been no rain
fall for a brief period , but the sky was low
ering. Just as the coiiin was placed beside
the grave there was a slight sprinkling of
rain , causing many to recall the old saying ,
"Blessed nre the dead whom the rain falls
on. " The Columbus Barracks band atthis
point played the American hymn and the
reading of the service followed. Mrs. Hen
dricks only leaned more heavily upon Mr.
Morgan , resting her head at last upon his
shoulder , but her self-control was bravely
maintained. While the service was read ,
the congressional committee , members of
the cabinet and otherdistinguished visitors
stood upon the other side of the grave. The
words of the clergy were now and then
drowned by the sound of the minute gun
which was kept firing until after the inter
ment was over. When the collin had been
lowered into the vault by four colored as
sistants of the undertaker , and there was
nothing remaining to be done , for the plac
ing of the stone and the filling of the grave
was to be attended to by the cemetery
force , there was a moment's pause and the
silence was broken only by the minute gun.
Then Mrs. Hendricks and the friends of the
family passed by the still open but not re-
pellant grave and took their carriages.
The people who had waited so respectfully
bhen flocked to the grave to get a nearer
dew. The military order , "Forward
March ! " started the soldiers homeward ,
the carriages rapidly rolled away and the
Sistinguished dead was left alone.

Gen. Robert Toombs has recently defined
a fanatic as "a man with big notions and
very small points.
M. Pasteur modestly declines all the ova
tions and other distinctions tendered him
for his success in cholera inoculation.
Mr. Dominick F. McCaffrey , of Philadel
phia , in an interesting interview asserts
that Prof. John L. Sullivan is the most
scientific man he ever saw , "as well as the
best at all points. " Presumably Mr. Mc
Caffrey uses the vernacular and pronounces
M. Grevy , although the possessor of moro
than $7,000,000 , is said to be too stingy
to provide a respectable table , and to live
on the cheapest and meanest meats , which
seem to go well with Grevy. But if the
newspapers keep up the war upon his do
mestic affairs , evidently Grevy must go.
Mr. W. H. Smith , the enterprising news-
vender and also the Sir Joseph Porter of
"Pinafore , " together with several more
equally enterprising gentlemen who had
arranged for elevation to the peerage in the
event of the liberal return to power , seem
likely to waitawhilelonger lor the expected
Report of Hie Secretary of War.
The annual report of the secretary oi
war has been issued. He speaks of the
operations of troops in Oklahoma and
Arizona at some length and cites the fact
that Lieut.-Gen. Sheridan is now investi
gating in person the condition of affairs in
the latter territory. The secretary con
curs in the recommendation of Gen. Sheri
dan of concentrating the troops and put
ting a large garrison in the vicinity of large
cities. He favors the retention of West
Point graduates as additional second lieu
tenants in the army if vacancies are insuf
ficient to provide places , and recommends
that all state troops be armed with the
same weapons as the regular army.
