Ex-President Arthur Dead.
Chester A. Arthur, Twenty hirst
President died at his home in New
York, Nov. 18th at 5 a. m.
The news of the death of ex-Pres-
ident Arthur came as a great sur-
prise. Notwithstanding the alarm
ing rumors as to his health during
the summer months, the supposed
improvement in his condition noted
during his stay in New London,
Conn., and the apparant confidence
expressed by his friends who re
mained close to him created \he
impression that his health had
been radically improved, giving
him promise of a new lese of life.
His disease was one affecting the
kidneys, and those nearest him had
no faith in his permanent recovery,
but his sudden demise was not
spoken of. He began to sink rap-
idly shortly after midnight, and by
3 o’clock it was known that death
was approaching. He expired
without apparent pain.
As soon as the news of Mr. Ar-
thur’s death was made public many
flags on public and private build-
ings were placed at half-mast. Mr.

Mr. Arthur’s administration of the
government had commended him
very strongly to the people, and es-

The Inequalities of the Tariff Taxa-
Taxes are, of course, paid by pro-
duction, and the balances of produc-
tion, and, accordingly of tax resour-
es aud tax burdens arc therefore
correlative. These balances may
be found very cleai ly indicated in
the statistics of the labor population.
At the last census there were 2,676,-
000 persons employed in the more
or less protected artisan industries
and 7,670,000 in agriculture, 4,074,-
000 in professional and personal
services, aDd 1,819,000 trade and
transportation. There are 17,392,-
000 persons in the population of the
United States engaged in'gainful
occupations, and of those 2,676,000
laborers and employers are engaged
in the artisan and other industries
for which the protective duties of
about 8195.000,000 are levied on the
remaining 14,616,000 of workers.
More than half of the latter grand
aggreg&te of producers are agricult-
ural laborers and farmers; and the
productions of this class are worth
twice as much to the life and re
sources of the nation as those of all
the other classes combined. It is
here, therefore, that the resources
of taxation are mainly denvod.
But all the productions of this
class are abnormally and artificially
depressed, with the single exception
of live stock, and it consequently
costs these producers an extraordi-
nary proportion of their products,
and an extraordinary expenditure
of their labor to pay these taxes in
any given sums of standard money.
To pay the customs tax of $195,-
000,000 would now require, at far-
mer's prices, about 310,000,000 bush-
els of wheat, or 650,000,000 bushels
of corn, or 710,000 bales of cottoD,
and so on; whereas, if farm produce
were at normal valuations, the same
amount of taxes would be paid by
205.000. 000 bushels of wheat, or
485.000. 000 bushels of coin, or 397,-
000 bales of cotton. These differ-
ences of 105,000,000 bushels of wheat
or 165,000,000 bushels of core, or
313,000 bales of cotton represent
the silver tribute to India in part
the universal depression caused in
all the Western world by the opera-
tion of the single gold standard.
But the point is this: the labor
and productions of the agricultural
classes are tolled at present valua-
tions for the tribute to artisan pro-
duction, amounting to $195,000,000
a year in percentage, which, at nor-
mal prices, would pay a tribute of
Without going into the large side
issues suggested by these startling
contrasts, we submit that they would
indicate to any honest and capable
statesman the policy of adjusting
taxation to the sadly reduced re:
sources ol the principal tax-payers.
