'SETTING HISTORY RIGHT.
Frank Hat ton Say. Blaine la Mot the)
Author of Reciprocity.
Chicago, Aug. 19. "History should cor-1
rectly give the credit of reciprocity to
President Arthur," said Frank Hatton at
the Grand Pacific "Arthur sent J. W.
Foster to Spain on the same mission upon
which be was sent by Blaine. - More than
that, on the first occason he negotiated a
similar treaty of reciprocity, which Pres
IJent Arthur laid b-lore the senate. It
was afterward withdrawn by Cleve
land, who found it still on the senate
table, it having been overlooked in the ex
citement of a presidential campaign. The
situe fate met a reciprocal treaty made
with Mexico by Generals Grant and Pres
cott, who were sent south upon the
errand by Arthur. To the latter certainly
b.-longs whetever credit may attach to the
origin of the reciprocity idea."
