SUICIDE OF JOHN ADAMS IN DEIIWICK.
On Monday last, at about half past oleyen in
the forenoon, lhe alnrlllng rumor circulated In
our town that John Adams hid committed sul-
cidoby hanging himself. Tho tumor l oved
lobe only too Imcj as tho dead body lying on
the floor of the room where lhe deed had been
committed, testified. The circnraslnnces aro
these: The two brothers, John nnd Kinney,
have chn'geof tho store of Adams et Son, and
sleep in a room over lhe store room. Eirly
on this morning when the usual hour for open
ing Iho (lore was at hand, John rcntielcd hi
brother lo open the store, saying that he had
not slept well, not did he feci well, nnd would
take a short nap before gelling up, Kinney
then left him and attended to (lie duties of lhe
store. Several hours later ho went mi nnd
knocked ! Iho door of their bed-room, snvlnir
io John that some gentleman wanted to sec hlmt
Keceiving no answer, ho concluded Ihat his
brother must de asleep, and so would not dis
tilth him, knowing that ho had passed n misera
ble night. A little later than 11 o'clock, John'
services were needed by somo one, nnd Kinney
thought It time Ihat his brother awoke. So
again he called him and shook the locked door,
without rceiving a response. Slightly alarmed
by lii. brother's silenco, he effected an entrance
Into lhe room through a window, nnd found
John dead, hanging by the hammock rope to a
beam overhead, his feet barely touching the
floor, a box near by from which lhe unlortu
nale man had evidently jumped. Kinney was
terribly shocked, but immediately gave the
alarm. The body, shortly after taken down.
was cold, life having departed two or more
hours beforo the dead body was discovered; it
was dressed in a ncit suit from head lo foot,
save coat, vesl nnd hat. The verdict of the jury
was that he committed suicide in a fit of mo
mentary insanity. Tho body was taken to his
father's house, several miles out of lown.
John Adams is the son of Enos Adams, a re
spectable farmer of Briarereck township, and
has been, for a number of years, engnged with
his brother in the mercantile bu-iness here In
Berwick. He wns a man of lemperalo habits,
respecte-d and liked by his many friends; not
given very much to social pleasure-. He attend
ed strictly to hissucccsful business. Ills friends
leeply regret his sad denth. Xo letter up lo
the present time has been found explaining his
conduct, hence the cause can only be con jectur
ed. His conversation at various lb, ea, espec
ially recently, evinced Ihisfict, that he was of
despondent disposition, of Ihat kind that
yields to mid impulses againt the will. The
burning of his father's birn nnd livestock he
look much lo hearl; lhe expectation of moving
the store and its elifliculties he brooded upon
very much; other mailers, not more serioii",
except his health, troubled him a great deal.
His health was not seriously affected, only
slighlly dyspeptic. Brooding over these various
tilings led him lo the contemplation of suicide;
of the lallcr there is no evidence except the
natural conclusion and the fact thnt quite
lately, he nsked a friend which was the easiest
death, hanging or shooting. He bought a re
volver last Saturday night. Ho must havu re
sisted that fatal impulse for a long time.a el
even on ihat eventful morning, the fictof his
having carefully dressed himelf, indicates that
he battled with his menial enemy tor several
hours, only lo be conquered at 1.1-1. Iho him
mock rope attached to the ceiling, no eloubt
suggested to him hanging, awakening in him
ihat strange impulse thai led him lo his death,
an impulse like th it which sometimes seizesthe
sanest mountaineer, to hurl himself from the
top of the precipice as he stands gazing at the

The punishment of eleath it is often as

criminal, who usually prefers ending his lile
oil the gallows to a lingering existence with
in tho walls of a prioii. By criminal, how
over, who art not hardened, hanging is
viewed with repugnance, and some striking
evidence on this point is afforded by a scene

1 1 ii iv About a Fourth Term.
The question of the expendiency of a
third term directly involves the expendiency
of a fourth term alo. General Grant had
scarcely retired from the Presidential chair
before his closest and personal friends be
gan the demand, which has since grown so
loud, for his return to the oflice. During all
the years that havo followed tho American
people havo been kept wondering whether
he desired, or would accept, a third election.
:i singlj word from him would have showu
tnem just what they had to expect, but he
lid not choo-e tu speak it. They know now
that he is a candidate, because he makes no
ell'urt lo check the efforts of his friends to
nominate him. Tho silence of years re
Let us suppose Geu. Grant nominated,
elected, inaugurated. Does any one doubt
that history would repeat itself '? Can any
one doubt that the men who began the pres
ent agitation for a third term would, in duo
tune, begin another for a fourth term ? We
should he told that the emergency he had
I) -en placed in oflice to meet was not yet
ended; Ihat his work would bo left linliii-i-bol
if he wero compelled to retire at the
end of one term. Tho absurd claim that
h is the only "stroti mail" inn nuionof
frevelmen would bereviwd. Let any one vh
doubts this reflect that many men who are
now in oil! e, and will be in office until
Mnredi 1, lM.Sl,owo their place to Geueril
Grant (This is tho secret strength of the
third term movement.) Let it bo remember
ed U that every men who is in ollii-e utter
March 1, 1SS1, would envo his continuance
in office to President Grant, it would he
a-tnnisliing, under these circumstances, if,
with the precedent of a third term already
set, there were not a loud cry for a fourlh.
Gratitude has been defined on high authori
ty In be "a lively n,e of favors to come."
Who can eloubt that, if this should come
to pass, Gen. Grant would maintain the
sime absolute silence ho has pre
served for the past three years, Who can
doubt that the American people would be
nlloweil to speculate f ir years about his in
tention, eiuly to find at last ihat ho would
no! refuse a re-election if ha could secure ii?
Is any friend ot Gen. Grant :iutlioir.d to
'ay nnv that, if he is elected fir a fmrth ?
Will Geu. Grant hlm-rlf say so? Wo think
Il.sfnro the Chicago- convention meets, let
the liepubllc.iu parly cotnider in all sober
ness, whether they are ready to piopose to
fie Ameilean people u fuurth term for nuy
body or a fifth term, or an indefinite number
of term. And tills pie-tion can be consid
ered without great bitterness to the soldier
Xo one can blaaio him for wanting all the
honors he can get. Ho is not a George
Washington, and there has been only one in
American history. Hut it is a fair question
for the leaders of tho Hepubliean party to
