president replied that the matter was
one with which eonvrress must deal,
and which that body must originate,
but that what had been sai I he voiiltl
Wiimed ty Ji I'orincr 1 ;.iei-in-'.
The feature of the visit, however,
was in the charge the president made
against a committee -which called up
on him a year ago, his experience with
that committee, he said, forbade
him discussing the situation freely aud
informally. He continued: "When the
president of the T'nited Slates definite
ly nnd formally expresses himself for
publication on a question of great nn
tional importance what he says should
not be left to the imperfection of mem
ory, often colored by Interest, but
should bo put beyond the possibility of
misunderstanding by careful prepara
tion nnd comniithil to writing. To try
to repeat from memory what the presi
dent has said when a year has elapsed
is to show entire indifference to ac
curacy, as well as to propriety.

"Yet this is precisely what Mr. Whit
ney did in the Massachusetts campaign
that has just closed. He pretended
to quote Avhat I luid said during the
course of the long and informal inter
view with his committee a year be
fore; no notes of the conversation hav
ing been taken at the time. Not only
did lie misquote the words I used, but
by suppressing almost all that I had
said, and by giving what he purported
to give entirely apart from its context,
he Absolutely and as I am constrained
to believe deliberately, misrepresent
ed what had occurred, iind he knew
well that it was impossible for the
president of the T'nited States to i liter
into a personal discussion about the
matter with him.

Any Intentional Misrepresentation.
A dispatch from P.oston says that
Henry M. Whitney, when he was ad
vised of the president's statement to
Governor Douglas, said: "I had no in
tention to misinterpret the presi lent.
I certainly understood him to say at
our conference that he favored leci
procity with Canada." After s,ine
thought Whitney added: "Andrew (1.
Webster and .1. M. W. Hall, ex-mayor
of Cambridge, who were with me on
the -onimittee. had the same under
standing. I believe. I shall communi
cate with them immediately in order
to verify this beyond a doubt."
The dispatch adds that Whitney lat
er made the following statement: "An
drew G. Webster, J. M. W. Hall and
I, consisting of a sub-couunittee of the
Chamber of Commerce committee of
100 on reciprocal trade, visited Wash
ington last winter for a conference
with the president touching especially
the matter of the Hay-Bond treaty. 1,
as chairman of the committee, made
an argument iu favor of the treaty,
and in the argument made reference
to the advantage of reciprocal treaties
with Canada. We understood the presi
dent to express himself as not unfavor
able to the Hay-Bond treaty, but de
sirous of seeing and favoring also the
fullest possible freedom of trade with
"While we may have misunderstood
the president I do not see how we
could have done so. I absolutely deny
any 'willful.' and 'intentional misprere
sentation of the president's attitude,
and I have no recollection of what he
refers to as the 'context' which was
calculated to modify the views he ex
pressed. The committee above named
made substantially this report to the
full committee at the time of o;ir re

"I regret extremely that the presi
dent should eonid.fr that I have mis
represented his attitude, and especially
that he should f e 1 I have intenti maliy
done so. which I aver is not true."'
Copies of tills statement, the dis
patch concludes, were sent to Hall
and Webster, who accompanied Whit
ney to the White House, and they both
declare that Whitney correctly states,
according to their recollection. wh it the
