elntod February 2 1 , 1881.
Hon. Jan-cs A eiirlltUI , Mentor.
thur over lust night from Wna-
ington nnd I hnd n conference of sov-
crnl IIOIUH with him , He informed
mo tlint Bliino nnd hia political ml-
luironta were very much provoked nt
what they called my interference ,
nnnioly , bccnuso I had suggested with
ninny others the niuiio of .Kulgo Fol-
; nr for secretary of the treasury. Gen-
crnl Arthur says ho had iiovor heard
such n bu/.z nnd disturbance of fooling
art there hns boon among the Blivitu
people , lie furthermore snya thnt
Elkins , noting no doubt for Blnlno , it
talking very noisily ngninst the aolco-
tion of Judge Folger , bccnuso ho wne
n tool ot mine. The disappointment
manifested by this fooling in Washing
ton is great and I think therefore tlint
this manifest ntiou of bitterness ia a
tiling of which you should take liucd
and I write what I have aaid to
vou more than once , that neither
Blnino nor nny other nmbitioua mnn
should hnvo control of the grout placoa
in your cabinet. If Blaine is to bo
nindo secretary of stnto nnd n protege
of his secretary ot the treasury nnd
mother secretary of importance ) , I
! mvo great fcnra that the ndministra-
Lion would grontly Bailer , with nn oven
chnnco that disaster would follow
, u the near future. I do not > ylsh
o any an unkind thine ; of Blaine ,
ilthough ho is charged with the ro-
sposibility for the must unkind things
said of mo within the Innt week , nnd
the moil untruthful nnd malignant
ever ultorodby mnn. If what General
Arthur hns hoard is true , it ia clear as
daylight to my mind that ho expects
to hnvo his friend in the treasury do-
pnrtmnnt ; another friend either in the
postollicu or the interior , nnd that
through them nnd by them ho intends
to do ono or two things ) either to
mnko your administration a campaign
ground for his own nspirationa , or he
Imi Homo other object no less danger
ous to the party in view. I cannot
bring myself to believe thnt Blaine h
in the aliito of mind ho ia reported to
bo , nnd I sincerely trust thnt General
Arthur has been misinformed. I any
to you thnt [ or your administration
und the republican party nnd for the
oountry the appointment of Judge
Folger to the treasury department , is
the most important ono you have to
deal with. Your failure to appoint
liim , it sooina to mo , will bo n monumental
mental mistake of your administra
tion. I believe the republican party
of the country think well of Blaine ,
and I think hia selection ns the head
of your cabinet ia a wiao ono , but
Blaine ia not in a position to , bo the
chief of tho'cabinotiftnjl then , dictate
the other important places in it , and
what is of more importance , you are
not in a position to allow him to do it.
