ILLINOIS PIONEER DIES IN OHIO.

Charles A. Beecher, Adviser of Abraham Lincoln, Is No More.

Word has been received of the death at Marysville, Ohio, of Charles Albert Beecher of Cincinnati. Death came suddenly from heart disease while visiting a niece. Mr. Beecher was a close friend and confidential adviser of Abraham Lincoln and was a delegate from Illinois to the national convention which nominated Mr. Lincoln in 1860. From 1858 to 1868 he was a member of the Illinois Republican State central committee. It was he who in 1861 assisted in obtaining for Ulysses S. Grant a commission as captain in the Illinois volunteer service. In 1881 he removed to Cincinnati and was active to merging the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad with the Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern. He leaves a large fortune to nephews and nieces, having never married.
