Five Minute Chafis
on Our Presidente4
By JAMES MORGAN
(Copyright, 1920. by James Morgan)
AN ERA OF REFORM
1883-Jan. 16, Arthur signed the
civil service law.
1884-Defeated for the Repub
lican nomination by James
G. Blaine.
1886-Nov. 18, died In New
York aged fifty-six.
TT IS one of the pranks of fate that
Chester A. Arthur, whom President
Hayes put out of the New York cus
tom house as a spollsman and a politi
cal boss, should find himself in the
White. House seven months after
Hayes left it and conducting a reform
administration. It was the mandate
and lesson of Garileld's assassination
that we must get rid of factions and
spoils or the government itself might
next be struck down as its chief had
been. Arthur saw that this was the
logic of the tragedy which had thrust
him into the presidency and he did his
best to clean house.
The race for preferment had excited
an unnatural appetite for public office,
and the getting of a job was regarded
as exhilarating sport. From police
man, fireman and letter carrier to
chliefship and consulship, every place
on the payroll of city, state or nation
went by favor. Two endless proces
sions were forever moving, one made
up of those who had been turned out
or turned down, and the other of those
who were struggling to get in.
The civil service law, which was
passed in Arthur's administration, took
out of politics the departmental clerk
ships In Washington but 85 per cent
of the federal employees as a whole
were left under the spoils system.
Nevertheless, the difficult first step had
been taken toward the present com
prehensive system, when- all but a few
hundred of the hundreds of thousands

of places are open equally to self-re
specting applicants, regardhless of par
ties or politicians.
Arthur also was the useful instru
ment in carrying forward the recon
cIliation of the sections. Lie was the
first president in his generation who
madle no reference in his annual mnes
sages to the South or to a Southern
question. lHe was indeed almost the
first flresidlent in 50 years who felt
free to ignore the unhappy issues of
sect ional Iism.
When he stepped into the White
House Arthur found his party rent
by factions. Hie left it more nearly
unitedl than it had been before in
20 years and wvith at least a chance
to win again in 1884i. Hie might him
self have becen the Republican noem
lace in that year if he had not scrupu
lously refused to take an active part
in promoting his candlidacy.
He looked as well as actedl the presi
(lent. The first city man in a line of
rural or small towni men, Arthur was
the best dressed man to sit in the chair
since Washington, and perhaps the
hmandlsomnest, with a tail, graceful fig
ure, the manners of the great world
and a grave but easy courtesy.
Although a widower president, hig
sister, Mrs. McI~lroy, wvas a charming
mistress of the White House and under
them the social life of the mansion
took on a more sumptuous tone, His
son andl namesake wvas awvay at school
much of the time, but his little daugh
ter, Nellie Arthur, lit up the hoase
hold( with her song and laughter.
Mrs. Ar thur dliedl only in the year be
fore her husband's unexpectedl rise to
the presidecncy, andl her absence from
his side wvas a haunting sorrow to Ar
t huir.
Declining to remove the collreotor i6f
the port of Newv York, whom (Garfir~cd
had ap~pointed, against his protest, lhe
even Ipermittedl that officehohelri te
leave his post and oppose him;: lo the~
contest at the national convenilen.
No other president has (lone .o little
as Arthur did( to obtain a secrym ondi.
It was wveli, not only for the- sake of
the. high example he set, butl for hIs
own sake also. Arthur's healtht was
not equal to the strain of niolther
administration and another term~ in
the WVhite House, where he livi-d not
wisely but too well. In 10.s than iwo
