Chester A. Arthur was the 21st President of the United States. 1881-1885, Republican Party.
Chester Alan Arthur was born in Fairfield, Vermont, and, upon graduation from Union College in 1848, he practiced law in New York City before joining the political machine of Roscoe Conkling.
Chester Arthur had succeeded to the presidency as a Conkling leader. Conkling was a U.S. Representative (1869-63, following Garfield's assassination, 1865-67) and Senator (1867-81), Conkling had come to be the undisputed Republican leader in the state of Vermont. During the Grant administration (1869-77) he controlled Federal patronage. A dispute with President Garfield over appointments that Conkling felt he should have controlled led him to resign his Senate seat and retire officially from politics, yet he continued to strongly influence the Republican party from behind the scenes.
Arthur was a tall, handsome man and the most stylish president since Martin Van Buren. He was also, like Jefferson, Jackson, and Van Buren before him, a widower. Henry Watterson described him in a Jul 12, 1919, POST article:
"Arthur was a man of surpassing sweetness and grace. As handsome as Pierce, as affable as McKinley, he was a more experienced and dexterous politician than either. He had been put on the ticket with Garfield to placate Conkling. All sorts of stories to his discredit were told during the ensuing campaign. The Democrats mad hem out a tricky and typical New York politician. He was, on the contrary, a manysided accomplished man, who had a taking way of adjusting all conditions and adapting himself to all companies."
He also loved good food and entertained a great deal. He thought the White House looked like "a badly kept barracks," and he asked that it be redecorated.
He is a good example of how the office of the presidency can change a man for the better. His earlier political activities had involved politics at the lowest level. He was put on the ticket with James Garfield with no thought of being president. The assassin's bullet changed that.
As president he realized his duty was to all the people. The job itself made him feel humble. He asked for civil service reform and signed the act creating the Civil Service Commission. He also updated the Navy and improved the postal service. He tried to give the country hones and efficient government. "It would be hard to better President Arthur's administration," said Mark Twain. Nevertheless, the leaders of his political party frowned upon his active social life and refused to renominate him in 1884.
On the evening of Sept. 19, 1881, Vice-President Arthur was in his home at 123 Lexington Avenue, New York City. Through the open windows he could hear newsboys shouting, "President Garfield is dying!" About midnight he received a telegram from the members of Garfield's Cabinet informing him of the president's death and advising him to take the oath of office without delay. Arthur took the oath with firm resolution, but his heart was heavy. He knew that millions of Americans regarded him as unfit for the presidency of the United States.
A Baptist Minister's Son
Chester Alan Arthur was born in the village of Fairfield, Vt., Oct. 5, 1829. His father, William Arthur, had immigrated to America from northern Ireland when he was 18 and had become a Baptist minister. His mother, Malvina Stone Arthur, was born in New Hampshire. The Arthurs had four daughters when Chester was born. When the family was complete, Chester had a brother and another sister.
Elder Arthur, an eloquent preacher, was restless, and moved constantly from one town to another. In 1839 he settled down at Union Village (now Greenwich), in eastern New York. Chester attended the academy there and was remembered by his teacher as being "frank and open in manners and genial."
Five years later Elder Arthur moved to Schenectady. There Chester was admitted to Union College as a sophomore when he was only 15, because his father had taught him Latin and Greek. His father, however, could give him no financial help; so the next year Chester began to teach during the long winter vacations. After graduation at 18, near the top of his class, he continued to teach while studying law.
He Defends Civil Rights
Elder Arthur was an abolitionist, and his son shared his views on slavery. In the minister's congregation was a congressman, Erastus D. Culver, who also had strong antislavery principles. Culver moved his law office to Brooklyn and agreed to take young Arthur into his firm to train him. The tall, handsome young man entered Culver's office in March 1853. The next year he was admitted to the bar and taken into partnership.
Chester Arthur arrived in time to assist Culver in the famous Lemmon slave case. In 1852 Jonathan Lemmon and his wife had brought eight slaves from Virginia to New York by boat. They intended to stop over only until the next boat left for Texas. The court decided that slaves passing through New York became free.
Meanwhile Arthur was fighting another civil rights case. A black woman, Lizzie Jennings, had been forced off a Brooklyn streetcar by the conductor and some of the passengers. Arthur won $500 damages for her and, more important, obtained a court decision that blacks should be allowed the same accommodations on street railways as white passengers.
He Marries and Enters Politics
In 1856 Arthur went into partnership with another young lawyer in a modest office in the Wall Street district. To build up a practice, he needed to enlarge his circle of acquaintances; so he joined clubs and entered politics. He soon numbered among his friends prominent literary people as well as politicians. He could talk equally well on literature, politics, or fishing--his only sport.
In 1859 Arthur married Ellen Lewis Herndon of Fredericksburg, Va., who was living in New York City with her mother. Her father, Capt. William Lewis Herndon of the United States Navy, an explorer of the Amazon, had heroically gone down with his ship in the Caribbean after saving many lives. Ellen had a winning manner, and she and her mother belonged to a prominent social group.
Arthur played an important part in the organization of the new Republican party in the state of New York, but he was never interested in holding political office. His activities soon brought him to the attention of the governor, Edwin D. Morgan.
On April 13, 1861, the day after Fort Sumter was fired on, Morgan asked Arthur to take over the duties of quartermaster general in New York City. The post involved supplying barracks, food, uniforms, and equipment for the thousands of troops who passed through the city. Arthur quickly built up an efficient organization and forced contractors to meet specifications. He could not be bribed to accept inferior materials. A friend quoted Arthur as saying, "If I had misappropriated five cents, and on walking downtown saw two men talking on the street together, I would imagine they were talking of my dishonesty."
Morgan was succeeded by a Democratic governor, and Arthur turned over his organization to a Democratic successor on Jan. 1, 1863. He left the office poorer than he was when he went in; but he soon acquired a considerable fortune in private practice.
Arthur's first son, born in 1860, died before he was three years old. Another son, born in 1864, was given his father's name but was called Alan. A daughter, born in 1871, was named for her mother, Ellen Herndon Arthur.
Collector of the Port of New York
Arthur's political activities brought him into close association with Senator Roscoe Conkling, the Republican boss of New York State. In 1868 Arthur worked with Conkling to promote Grant's election. President Grant rewarded Arthur by appointing him, in 1871, collector of the port of New York. The New York Times, reporting the appointment, said of Arthur: "His name very seldom rises to the surface of metropolitan life, and yet, moving like a mighty undercurrent, this man during the last ten years has done more to mold the course of the Republican party in this state than any other man in the country." The secret of his success, said the Times, was his executive ability and his knowledge of men.
The New York Custom House, on Wall Street, collected about two thirds of the nation's tariff revenue and employed about a thousand people. It was the usual practice for the collector to give appointments to people who had worked for the party and to accept from them "voluntary contributions" to campaign funds. Arthur was scrupulously honest but he was a practical politician, not a reformer. He did not remove good men to make way for others, but when an appointment was to be made he looked for a qualified political friend to do the work. Like Conkling and many other men in government, he believed that the spoils system ("to the victor belong the spoils") was necessary to maintain a political organization.
Civil-service reform was in full swing when Hayes succeeded Grant in 1877. Hayes decided to organize the New York Custom House on a strictly business basis (see Hayes). In 1878 he replaced both Arthur and his associate, Alonzo B. Cornell, with men of his own choice. Conkling's machine, however, managed to retain its political power in the state, and Arthur remained dominant in New York City.
Arthur's wife died on Jan. 11, 1880, and was buried beside her son and Arthur's parents in a rural cemetery near Albany. With his wife and his parents gone and his Custom House administration discredited, Arthur was desolate.
The Republican party was seriously divided in 1880. Conkling, as leader of the Stalwart Republicans, tried to nominate Grant for a third term in 1880. The "half-breed" Republicans wanted Senator James G. Blaine. The deadlock in the convention lasted until the 36th ballot, when James A. Garfield was unexpectedly nominated. To make sure of the Stalwarts' aid in the election, the convention nominated Arthur for vice-president. The Republicans won the election and Arthur took the Senate chair; but he did not lose his interest in New York politics.
After the election, the split in the party widened. Garfield appointed Blaine, Conkling's bitter enemy, as secretary of state and refused to allow Conkling to name the secretary of the treasury, who would control the Custom House. Finally, Garfield proposed to appoint William H. Robertson, the outstanding "half-breed" Republican of New York State, to the Custom House.
Conkling feared Robertson would use Custom House patronage to build up his own machine. Arthur shared his apprehension. As a protest, Conkling resigned from the Senate and took with him the junior senator from New York, Thomas C. Platt. Arthur went with them to Albany to work for their reelection.
Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881, by a crazed office seeker who boasted that he was a Stalwart Republican (see Garfield). During the weeks when Garfield lingered between life and death, popular indignation against the Stalwarts ran high. "Arthur for president!" Hayes wrote in his diary, "Conkling the power behind the throne, superior to the throne!" Arthur remained in seclusion until Garfield's death made him president.
Refurnishing the White House
Arthur was wealthy and used to modern conveniences. He refused to move into the White House until a real bath was installed, walls refinished, and worn furniture and carpets replaced. He gave his personal attention to the new fittings and had 24 wagonloads of discarded relics removed and sold at auction. Then he moved in with his French chef and black valet. One of his sisters, Mary Arthur McElroy, acted as hostess for him and cared for his 12-year-old daughter Nelly. Arthur's son Alan was at Princeton during this time.
After a period of mourning for Garfield, Arthur began to entertain on a lavish scale. He enjoyed balls and receptions and had an epicure's taste for food and drink. After two or three hours at the dinner table he would still urge his friends to stay because he disliked to bring a pleasant evening to a close. Then he would work late into the night. This type of life caused him to gain weight and lose energy. In 1883 he went on a fishing trip to Florida to regain his health. He contracted a fever on this trip and never fully recovered from the effects of the illness.
Arthur's simple and sincere inaugural address helped to reassure the people. In his first message to Congress he surprised everyone by coming out strongly for civil-service reform. In 1883 he signed the country's first civil-service law, the Pendleton Act. This act set up a civil-service commission to conduct open competitive examinations for about 14,000 officeholders. Succeeding presidents extended the merit system (see Civil Service).
Before Garfield's death, frauds in the so-called Star Routes had come to light. The Star Routes were those in the Far West where mail was still carried by horseback or stagecoach. Large sums had been drawn from the post office for services that were never rendered. Arthur tried earnestly but unsuccessfully to bring the guilty to justice.
Arthur is called the Father of the American Navy because he took a personal interest in modernizing and expanding it. The Navy had declined steadily after the American Civil War. In 1882 Congress appropriated money for the nation's first all-steel vessels. The so-called "white squadron," which was completed in Cleveland's administration, formed the nucleus of the modern United States Navy.
Few governments in history had ever complained of too much money in the treasury. Throughout the 1880s, however, each year the United States government had a large surplus over ordinary expenditures. At this time government funds were stored in vaults rather than in banks. With each increase in the treasury surplus, more money was taken out of circulation, which resulted in a deflation of prices. Moreover this was happening in a period of rapid economic expansion. The most pressing problem of the administration therefore was how to return money to circulation. The flood of money was caused largely by the high tariffs that had been imposed by the government during the Civil War. Arthur wanted to attack the surplus by lowering tariffs. He set up a commission, which recommended a reduction in duties. Manufacturers who prospered under the high tariffs, however, had powerful lobbies in Washington. The so-called "Mongrel" tariff of 1883, which Congress passed, stamped the Republicans as favoring a high protective tariff. The Democrats at this time began to demand a lower tariff--"for revenue only."
In Arthur's administration the first acts to restrict immigration were passed. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 restricted the immigration of Chinese laborers for a ten-year period. In the same year paupers, criminals, convicts, and the insane were barred from the United States.
Arthur's popularity grew with each year of his presidency. He had struggled to hold together the bitterly divided Republican party, and he hoped to receive approval from the nominating convention of 1884. The convention, however, did not seriously consider him. Senator Blaine was nominated but lost the election to Grover Cleveland, the first Democratic president to be elected since 1856. Despondent, Arthur returned to his New York home and tried to resume his law practice, but he lacked the energy for it. He died on Nov. 18, 1886.
