Te following corrcspondence was published on the 16th, and íurnishes its own explanation: Morristown, October 11, 1880. My Beab Genekai,: My attentlon is callea to-day to an interview, or reported interview, had with yon, by ft person representlng the Paterson Guardian, of this State. As I read the report it seemed to me you were very imperfectly understood or very indifferently reported. I carne to this conclusión because of my knowledgc of your views upon the tariff question. The report does you injustice. The subject is one which our manufacturing friends are very solicitous about, and very properly so. 1 regret that your views upon tho tariff question, as I understajid them to be, had not found fvillor expression in your letter of acceptance. lf misrepresontations of your tarill views continue, would it not be wise and justice to take sonie occasion to put yourself right? Very truly yours, Theo. F. Kandolph. To General W. S. Hancock, Goveruors' Island: THE KEPLY. Goveknohs' Isr.ANu, New York, Oct. 13. My Deau Governob: I have recoived your favor of the Jlth inst. ín my letter of acceptanee I expresged ray full symputhy with our American Industries. I thoug-ht I spoke plainly enough to satisfy our Jersey f rtends regarding my views. I atn too soirart an American to advocate any departure from the general features of a polioy that has been largely iastrumontal in building up our industrias and keeping Americans from the competltion of thc under-paid labor of Kurope. If we intend to reinain honest and pay the puhiic debt, as pood people of all parties do, and weinean to administer the functions of the Government, then we must raise revenue in some way or other. Withareuuited and harmonious country we shall certainly in time pay off the public debt; but the necessity of raising money for the administration of the Government will continue as long as huinim nature lasts. AU parties ugree that the best way for us to raise revenue is larsrely by the tariff. So far as we are concerned, thorefore, all talk about free trade is folly. But the tnritf question will probably be treated with justice to all our Interests and people by some such bill as Eaton's. 1 believe that a eommission of intelligent experts, representins boththe Government and American Industries, will sugfrest tariff measures that will relieve us of any crudities and inconsisteneioa existing in our present laws, and oonflrm to us a eystem which will be judicious, just, harmonious and incidentally protectlve, as wellas stable in its effect.
