CAPT. ROBERT B. ARMS DEAD.

Inspector of Customs for 34 Years and Veteran of the Civil War.

Capt. Robert B. Arms died yesterday morning at his home in the Richardson building after an illness of several weeks, the final cause of death being Bright's disease. Capt. Arms had been prominent in Burlington circles for many years and had gained the respect and admiration of all with whom he came in contact both in a business capacity and in a social way. While not a politician he was a staunch republican and worked for the interests of his party with ability.

Capt. Arms was born in Brattleboro, Sept. 21, 1834, and was the son of Hinsdale and Theda Arms. He received his education in Brattleboro. He enlisted for service during the Civil War on August 11, 1862. On October 23d of the same year he was mustered into service as captain of Company B, 16th regiment, U. S. Vols., which company he was instrumental in raising at Brattleboro. By reason of the expiration of his term of enlistment he was discharged October 10, 1863, and was soon afterward appointed quartermaster with headquarters at Burlington. November 1, 1866, Capt. Arms was appointed inspector of customs for the port of Burlington and he has since held that office. He has also acted as treasurer at the custom house for many years. he was a very efficient and capable official, faithful in all his duties and his loss will be deeply felt by his associates as well as by a wide circle of acquaintances.

Captain Arms was twice married. He is survived by a widow, formerly Miss Ann Ward, and one son, Robert A. Arms of this city. A brother, Edwin H. Arms of Toronto, also survives him. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the First church.
