The Bottom Facts Reached Con cerning Those Arkansas Railroad Bonds. Director Harrison’s Testimony All of tho Hearsay Order. Tlio Scandal Built upon a Casual llemark ot‘ Treasurer Hollins. Col. Tom Scott Gives a Clear, Straight forward History of tlio Bonds. Blaine Had Nothing Whatever to Do with tho Zffattor. Special Dlepalch to Tho TWbUNA Washington, I). 0., May 15.—Mr. Blaine Is fully vindicated of nil complicity In tlio $51,000 bond transaction. ’lt is always difficult to prove a negative. It is fortunate for Mr. Blaine that he has been able to prove affirmative ly that ’tho Llttlo Rock & Tort Smith bonds were purchased bv the Union Pacific Railroad Company fur and on be lialf of another person, and that ho himself had no knowledge of or Interest In the transaction whatever.- The testimony of tho Govern ment Directors was preliminary In the lino of evidence, of which Tom Scott’s statement was' tho clliria.v. Some of tho Directors did not appear to good advantage, ami if they were always telling the truth, they told it with tho manner of those who have something to conceal. Mr. Rollins, particularly, was beguiled by the shrewdness ,of Gen. Ilunton, Chairman of the Sub-Committee, Into a metaphysical speculation upon the ethics of the transaction, and in tho speculative region of ethics, Mr. Rollins did not appear to good advantage. COL. SCOTT’S TESTIMONY, however, was succinct, clear, forcible, nml con clusive. Whatever differences of opinion there may be ns to the action of the Executive Committee In giv ing *o largo a sum of money, to Scott for hta services, or ns to the conduct of ttic Government Directors in remaining in willing Ignorance of the details of this hitherto mysterious transaction, no fair-minded man can say that the testimony of Col. Scott docs not leave Blaine ns Innocent and ns ignorant of the entire transaction ns a child unborn. Scott swore that ho owned the specific eeveuty-fivo gl,ooo - io question eighteen months before he was President of the Union Pacific Railroad, and more than a year before they were purchased by tho rend. ' Scott purchased them of Josiab Caldwell, formerly tho President of tho Little Hock & Fort Smith Railroad, now probably In Kuropo, for eighty cents on tho dollar cash. Scott bought them In conncc-' tion with extensive operatiods in Southern and Southwestern railroads on speculation, and believed that If tho road hud been completed they would have been worth much more than that he knows no reason why, if the road is completed, they should not ho worth as much as the Union Pacific bonds, which now sell for 102, Thu money for the bonds, 804,000, WAS PAID TO SCOTT by tbo Union Pacific. Company through Morton, Bliss i Co. u* the result of mi agreement between Scotland the Executive Committee of tho Union Pacific Railroad. Scott claimed that his service* in raising tho value of all stocks and securities of the road 250 per cent during bis administration entitled him to a largo sum. Ho needed money, lie had borrowed of Morton, Bliss & Co. about 800,000. Ho wished to pay it. The Union Pacific Executive Committee agreed to take the seventy-live 81,000 bonds, optional sale, and had a comUtlon that hu could, reclaim the bund* should he chooseto do so. Ho did in tend to do this. He said if the road had been com piutua uo itu uu]>i>udod the bonds would bo worth more than HtT cents. Under wich cir cnm«tancou bo aid not take hack the bunds, and Ims not concluded to treat tho $04,000 as a loan from tho Company, The whole subject IS STILL UNADJUSTED between Col. Bcolt and the Company, and if, os n result of thu mile and the conse quent depredation In railroad stocks, the opera tion on thu part], of Scott may--seem to huveanulcnientof tho sharp bargain in It, there is nothing, however, to show Unit Blaine has any complicity in the transaction. Even Blaine’s bit terest enemies will not seek to hold him respon sible for tbc slirewdncss or audacity of Co]. Scott's railroad operations. Bo the lost prop upon which this scandal story against Bluluo rested seems to be knocked uway. The Turbox investigation was made nubile at tho special request of Blaine. Tho Committee at first seemed DISINCLINED TO GRANT THIS REQUEST. Harrison reiterated his statement, which has been so often published in tho min utest par ticulors. He swore positively that ho withdrew hi motion for tin investigation at the request of Holl ins. who said that the investigation would Involve and ruin Blaine. Millard admitted tho substantial facts of Harrison, hut could not remember so much of thcdetolls. Ho especially could not remember tfcat upon leaving Hollins' room with Harrison the latter told, “Now, Mr. Millard, you stick a pin right in there. Hollins said that this thing would involve Blaine. Millurd swore that Rollins subsc- Stoutly said ho was mistaken about Blaluef and at thu transaction was ail right James 11. Wilson, of lowa, Government Di rector, admitted many of the statements alleged to have proceeded from him, and denied others. Wilson understood from Harrison that Blaine was (ho person involved. Rollins subsequently (old him, however, that if ho hud used Blaine's name Uo had no nioiiT to no it. Tho conversation with Hollins was had a fow days after thu talk with Harrison, illalnu never . told Wilson h® sold these bonds to tbu road for a constituent. On tho contrary, Htalnu said bo had nothing to do with these particular bonds. Wilson stated the following to have been his conversation witii Horace White: Hu was relating to White in u hasty way in Tun Tmnusß office tho general stories lie bad learned from Harrison und lllaine. Ho told White that Illalnu hud noth ing whatever to do with tho sovcuty-flvusl,UOO Little Hock A Fort Smith bonds: that they wont Into thu Union Pacific assets; that lllaine told him (Wilson) that no oau could have been more surprised than hu was when he hoard that his name was connected with those bonds. Wilson never told White that Illalnu had those bonds in his possession. Wilson said that White, who had made thu statement pub lished in thu newspapers, hud evidently done so in consequence of u misunderstanding by which hu confounded two transactions, both of which Wil son told Whllo of. Illalnu had told Wilson that the only mutter that he could possibly think of, or which in any way bis name could have been asso ciated with this transaction was that he (Ulnlno) .woe requested by Caldwell and parties Interested in the construction of tbu Little Hock A Fort Umlth Uailroad to aid the negotiation which was going on between that Company and the Southern Improvement Company, in which Col. Tom Scott was interested. \\ bite, Wilson thinks, must buvo confounded these two statements, for liliino cer tainly told him that hu HAD MO CONNECTION WITH TUB SPBCUTO UONUS in question. • Thu testimony showed conclusively that H. II Hollins, 1 Treasurer of thu Union Pacific Hall road, la tho-cause oMho Illalnu scandal. Hollins S roved himself a very bungling witness. Ho con nned In nearly all essential particulars Har rison's statement as to thu conversation at thu time Harrison made ids motion; Hollins maintained, however, that hffcould not have said that tho Investigation would defeat lllaine In his election In Maine, as be hud been elected two days before. Thu most unfortunate part of Hollins' evidence was his i MAUVBLOUB LAPBR3 OP MEMOIIT. Ho could not remember from what source he learned that Blaine was connected with this trans action, but he subsequently became cooTlnued that Blulno hud nothing to du with 1U Rollin's testimony leaves a painful impression that he either purposely misled Harrison und hid associate Director* by relating the Blaine story, or that he was told thu story by some person whom ho wishes to protect. Hollins made u general declaration that he re* carded the purchase of the bonds fag thu Company from whatever person as a questionable transac tion. He spent three quarters of an hour trying to qualify an Inadvertent admission, but wltnoui success. Thu bouds originally of the face value of s7f>, UOO, have been oxcluiuged for new securities of the same road, of facu-valub of $20.00U, thu actual value of which was estimated by Harrison at 7 cuuta on thu dollar, and by Tomßcotl at 60 cento. “I’ounii jack.” McClure, former Chief Justice of Arkansas, known us “Poker Jack," who was sworn tu thu examination, but not examined on the ground that his evidence was hearsay, gives out to*uight in a mysterious way (hut Caldwell, President of Ibo Little Hock Hoad, told hint that ho (Caldwell) hud given Hlalnu some bonds of that road, and that George W. Julian was mixed up in thu mattsr in some way on account of a laud-grant bill, but “Poker Jack fl adds that thu story hu Is peddling about would not even be evi dence iu an Arkansas court.

Tho witness thought It a strange transaction, and at a meeting of tho Doan! of iflrcclora In September, 1872, moved that a committee be appointed to In vestigate tho matter. Hollins camo to the wit ness and asked him to withdraw tho motion, as an Investigation would involve ex-Spcakcr nialno and might defeat his re-election to tbellonso,' Wishing (o fully understand tho mat ter, ho tdok Millard. of Omaha, with him next day. to see Rollins, and asked him further In re f ord to sho matter, and Hollins then said It would nvolvo a prominent member of tho Hepnbllcan parly. Whoa the House waa Investigating tho Credit Mobilier esse, Hollins waa on tho stand.. Tho witness wrote to Wilson, of lowa, and* asked him to propound cortaln questions in (ho matter to Hollins, but saw from tho daily reports that It was - not done. Tho witness found an entry on tho hooka of (ho Ex ecutive Committee, directing Morton, Bliss A Co. to draw on Ike Treasurer for $04,000, and hold tho Fort Smith and Little Hock bonds as collateral security. HolMns did not tell the witness how it would involve Mr. Blaine. In the following March an off ort wqy made to change the Board of Di rectors. Tho witness did not receive ony lotted from Secretary llulano, but he had a letter in his possession written by Mr. Dnlauo to Senator Morton, na follows: _ •UErAUSJIENTOFTnB fNTKRTOn, WASHINGTON. D.

Tho witness had never rondo any investigation about tho matter, but understood that Wilson had done so. Morton, Bliss A Co. drew on tho com pany for $U4,000, and Rollins, ns Treasurer, paid it.

He understood it to refer to Mr. Blaine, although ho docs not recollect that his name was mentioned. By Mr. Harrison—Did I not eny to yon, after wo came not, to “stick a pin on what Rollins had said about Blaine ?” t Witness—l do not recollect It, Witness knew nothing about the bonds spoken of, only what ap peared on tho records of tho Executive Committee of tho Company. ‘ He never madennr investigation of the matter. Rollins had since told the witness,- several times, that ho was mistaken about Blaine being mixed up' in the matter, and that there was nothing wrong about it. By Mr. Blaine—Did Harrison over a«k for any explanation tfif the matter In any meeting bud by the Board of Directors? Witness—No. sir. Tho Interview between Mr. Dlnino and himself took place in Washington. Mr. Blaine, In this In terview, denied that ho‘ ever bad possession of any Little Rock A Fort Smith Railroad bonds, except for those for which be sub scribed and paid, Mr. Blaine did not say that ho held the seventy-five bond* for any of hh constitu ents. On the contrary, hcßaldbodldnot; and that •he hud nothing to do with the seventy-five bonds passed to the Union Pacific Railroad Company.i Wilson talked with Dillon and others on this sub ject. Dillon had for two years been President of tho Company, and the only explanation that ho ob -1 taiued was that tho bonus were put in by Col. Scott, In accordance With arrangements between' him and tho Union' Pacific Railroad Company.: These bonds remain on the books of the Company an an unadjusted question, and Col. Scott ha* not yet received bis salary for the time that be was tho ; President of the Company. . ROLLINS’ TESTIMONY. Mr. Rollins, Secretary end Treasurer of Iho Union Pacific Railroad Company, testified, being Interrogated byllunton: Ho did not think Har rison offered tho resolution in tho Board of Di rectors to investigate tho subject of tho ownership of the seveuty-Uvu bonds by (hu Union Pacific Rail road Company, but ho thought that ho simply made an informal motion to investigate tho tran saction. At that time Rollins had beard that the bonds belonged to Mr. Blaine, but bo could nut now say from whom he received his information. lie could only slate tho fact that when Harrison made bis motion, or suggestion, be remembered that the rouiband its management bad been tho subject of severe criticism in the newspapers and elsewhere. As this transaction had been closed m», bo desired to obviate the scandal In connection with Blaine's nnnrn. whutlmr the report was (rue nr false. Ho may have said to uarnson, under those dream- Usances, that the bonds In question or somo equivalent expression. •QnssUou by Mr. Uuuton—And that an Investi gation wouldlnvolvo Mr. Blaine? Answer—l may have sold they were Blaine's bonds, or that ho would bo Involved in the mat ter. I may have used words equivalent to those. I merely stated as n matter of memory that I heard these were Blaine's bonds, and that Blaine might be involved. Q. —Then you confirm Harrison’s statement? •A.—l have gven you my statement. Rollins, in further testimony, said Hint Harrison mentioned tho occurrence of the Maine election having taken place two days previous to tho meet ing, when lUalno was triumphantly elected to Congress. Rollins did not ask Harrison lo with draw his motion, hut may hare said to him that Investigation would involve Blaine. <l.—How would thu ownership of these seventy five bunds involve Blaine? A.—Because it would bo thought a questionable transaction, as he could not see why the Union Pacific Railroad Company should by thu bends of tbo Little Rock A Fort Smith Railroad Company, or any other company. In acting as bo did, he de sired to avoid scandal. Q. —Wtiut scandal did yon desire to avoid? A.—The reported connection of Blaine with tbo bonds. M.—ln what connection was It a scandal? A.—lt was treated as u scandal then, and I pre sume Is now. Unaccompanied by any explanation from lllrtlne, It would no regarded us u scandal. Tho public would think it not right; that would bo their Judgment. The witness knows noth ing about Dtulnc’s ownership of any' Fort Smith and Little Hock hands; thought at tho time tho conversation between Hollins and Harrison took place, that Dlnluo was mixed an In the transaction, but from a conversa tion with Holllins, since, ail that Impression had been dissipated.. Ho understood that un effort was made thu next spring to change tho entire Hoard of Director*, hut did not know It hod any thing to do with their action about these i articular bonds. Ho thought tho Credit lobilier' inquiry * had something to do with St, as that matter was being investigated about that t|mu. Fvlther tho witness nor Harrison were Directors at the time of the Credit Moblller transaction, and they were both reappointed Di rectors of thu Union Pacific. In respond to another question, tho witness swore that ho knew nothing about the case under Investigation. MU. WILSON’S STATEMENT, Janice F. Wilson testified that ho had been n Government Director of the Union Pacific Hail ruud Company sluce IKOO, and, In reply to ques tions by liuntun, said that ho bad seen by the record that certain bonds of thu Little Dock A rurttimithltuilroud Company hud coma into tho possession of tho Union Pacific Uailroad Com pany. He hud heard that they cuum through Col. Thomas IL Hcott, thu President of the company, from 1871 to 187 IL lie had uo knowl edge of John C. rt. Harrison paving Introduced at a meeting of the Board of Directors u resolution in quiring how these bonds came into possession of Urn company, batllarrison Informed him that hu hud Introduced such a resolution, ond be was also informed by Harrison that Hollins told him iilaine would be Implicated If there should be un Investi gation. Wilson afterward hud u convehmtlun with Hollins on the subject, when Hollins eaicl that Harrison had no right to use Blaine's tmmo In that connection. Tho witness mentioned the mat ter to liloluo a few months after Suptemlter, IK7-’, when llinlno asserted that he h«d no Interest in these bonds, und no one could Ims more surprised than himself that his name should bo connected with them. Harrison said Unit thu Union Pacific Hoad did not now own the Little Hock bonds spoke of, Hu hud heard that Oliver Ames gave his check for &55,000 fur them, but be did not know whether it was true or not. Mr. Rollins furthor testified that he thought he talked with Oakes Ames, uud derived from him the (set that Oyl. Thomas A. Hcott furnished the suventy-ttvu bonds to thu Union Pacific Railroad Comimny. The rcasonwhy thu old bonds wcrecon cvluduudncw ones Issued in their place was be cause Boston parlies unuio arrangements to cum* plele thu Little Kock Itoad. llu did nut know or rumembur from whatauiirco be learned that Blaine wuh connected with the bunds. Mr. llluliui asked: Do you know of any clrcum* stance that led you to suspect 1 had any connec tion with the bonds? Hollins—None, whatever, Mr. Dlalue—Did Mr. Harrison renew to you his desire fur an InvestionY Hollins—Ho did not. IIAUUISOH nUCALLBD. Mr. Harrison was recalled, and having been asked a question by Mr, Huntou whether ho could tell the proximate value of the seventy-live bonds replied that he had heard them spoken of us valueless bond*. When he made a motion in thu board of Directors fur an investigation be believed tiß'm to hu valueless, und thought it strange they should be found among the assets of the Union I’aclflc Hallroad Company. Thu Company at the time was u largo borrower, and the 10*per*cent Incomu bonds commanded only from 60 to GO cents on the dollar. Harrison said (list when Rollins was on tho stand before tlfu Credit Mobillcr Committee he tele graphed to Jeremiah M. Wilson, Chairman, to ask Hollins certain questions about tho *76 bunds, but tho questions were not asked, and the next thing hu received was Information from Secretary Delano that thu whole Hoard of UuveromentDlrectora (In chidiug’hlmself) of the Union Pacific Railroad Company must be changed.

Ho abandoned tho investigation before the Hoard of Directors,,and reported to the Congressional Committee. Mr. niidnc—Bnl did you do so officially? —r. Harrison—l stencil tnonnmo to tho telegram as a Government, Director of tho:Union Paclfld Hnllrond Company. j Mr. Harrison, in answer to a question by Mr; Blaine, said, "So far as the boolw and papers o the Union Pacific Railroad Company arc conccrnci oynr uamo is not comncctcd with these bonds. ” Mr. Hlainc—Have you any reason to buiievo tba I was corruptly associated with them? . Mr. Harmon—Only from what Hollins stated t< me. Mr. Hlalno—Have you not said that yon hek something that would blow Blaine sky-high when ever you cbosof Mr. Harrison—l only repeated what Hollins tok mo. [ Mr. Blaine—You did not speak of having dyna* mite that wonld blow mo upf | Harrison—Nothing of tho kind. I hnro always hod a friendly . feeling for you, nnd bops that you will coinn out of this matter satisfactorily. If yotr had written to me I should have told you in reply that the hooks of tho Union Pacific Hollroad Company do not show your name In connection with tho 75 bonds or In any transactions of that kind. All my information camo-from Hollins, who said an Investigation wonld ruin you and defeat your election to Con* gross. i .Mr. Blaine—When I had been elected two days before? \ | Mr. fTnrrlson—That's what Hollins told mo. | Mr. Hlainc, Addressing llnnton, said that, al though the resolution ortho' House under which this Investigation was held did not refer to him by name, the proceedings had been conducted ns If ho had been on the stand. Mr. Hunter said that while It was true that Blaine's name was not mentioned In the resolu tion, there was not n man, woman, or child bnt knew thnt the Investigation was designed for him, and ho Blaine must understand It after his couvcr-: salion with him. Mr. Blnlne thanked llnnton for his courtesy and kindness In opening the doors to this investigation, nnd raid that an Col. Scott's testimony this case must stand or fall. Col. Thomas A. Scott said he could explain not only all the transactions with reference to himself, hut everything about the bav enty-rtve bonds. Tills was a correct nnd proper transaction, based on tho cqnltlcs dne to himself and with wmcb'Mr. Blnlne hid nothing to do. ; ' COL. SCOTT ' was sworn, and, on being examined by ITunton, testified that lie formerly owned thoso seventy five bonds of tho Little Hock & X'ort .Smith Kallrond Company, and bought them a year and four months previously to .bis soil ing them to the ' Union Pacific Kallrond Company. Ho bought them from Jacob Caldwell who was negotiating tho bond* of tliut Company.; Caldwell belonged to Poston, but bo didn't know where ho was how. H understood, however, that Caldwell, during tho panic of 1873, went to Eu rope after his failure In the West, nod was there now. lie gave Caldwell eighty cents on tho dollar for the bonds. Thu purchase was made in 1870, when ho had nothing to do with tho Union Pacificßailroad Company. Ho gave SBO,-. 000 for tho bonds, and sold them to tho union Pa cific Hailrond .through Morton, Bliss & Co. for nearly $04,000. , Then In March, 1871, ho entered upon tho duties of President of the Company, Dm stock was low down, and every thing connected with It depressed, but it was not long before theta was n marked Improvement In all Its affairs. Ho bad believed tlic Committee would give him a lib eral compensation for his.sorvlcofi. tic was pressed for money, which he wanted mure than the mere salary, ond it was finally suggested that tho Com mittee ' should buy thuao seventy-five bouds of .(he Little Bock A Port Smith Itailroad Company. Hu was to' have tho option of buying them back. The Executive Com mittee agreed to buy the bonds at Dm price fixed through Morion, Bliss Co., and the bonds went to tho Union Pacific Railroad Company in tbisdi reel way and In no other. Ilia year’s salary bad never been paid. That would bo SB,OOO with in terest. If the Arkansas Road had been com pleted the bonds would have, been worth from ill) to 100 cents on tho dollar. . Ho had rendered Dm Union Pacific Railroad Company a service for which there was no market value. -He was satis fied that if the Little Ruck & Fort Smith Railroad had been built. Us bonds would hnvb been as good .ns those of tho Union Pacific are to-day. He ro-, lientod that this purchase of tho seventy-five bonds »y the Company was in consideration of valuable services rendered by him. The investment in those bonds was because the Company wanted to do an equitable thing fur him. Tho Company did nut display tho transaction on their books, nud never expected that It would become a subject of investi gation by a Congressional committee. Q.—l understand you to say the Executive Com mittee, of which you were ox-ofildo a member,, bought these aeventy-fivo bonds to oblige you t A.—Partially to oblige mu nud also in considera tion of valuable services. Col. Scott repealed that tho bonda belonged to him, and were sold to the Company when lie want ed money, and tho amount ho received helped him to pay hm debts. Ho bad twice asked fur his sal ary, but had not yet received It, if.—Bo you know whether Blaine had any part In these transactions. A.—l never had any relations with Blaine in Lit tle Rock & Fort Smith Railroad bonds, .directly or Indirectly. Mr. Lawrence—lf I understand you correctly,tho sale of the bonds to the Union Pacific Railroad was adopted ns a means to compensate you In part for extraordinary services. A.—Yes. Q.—How docs the compensations you received compare with thofcomponmUlonofothcrcompaulesT A.—The Heading Hallway Company gives its President $30,000 per annum; the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore, $00,000; and tho Erie,’ SIO,OOO. But when you come to consider how low down tho stock of tho Union I'uclllc. Hallroud Company was when I became President, and tho prosperous condition of the Company soon after* warns, my compensation was worth double tho val ue of the Bcvuniy-tlvo bonds of the Little Hock & Tort Smith Hallroud Company. Tho reason why tho compensation was given In this form, was tho Executive Committee did not wish to Interfere witli or disturb tho fixed salary of SB,OOO to fbe President. •tj.—Have yon any knowledge or Information that connects itlalnc with tho *75 bonds? A.—Kune whatever. I always believed that Caldwell, from whom I purchased the bonds, was the principal man in negotiating them. QUESTIONS BY MR. ULAINB. Mr. Illnlnc—Did i ever speak or wrlto to you in behalf of Caldwell? A.—You never did. Mr, Blaine—Have you any knowledge at nil that I was interested In the bonds before you purchased them, or was In any way Interested In the proceeds after you sold them to the Union Pacific llullroud Company. A.—l have no knowledge or belief whatever Hint you bad anything to do with them. JOHN m’cluu, of Arkansas, was swum, and testified that ho won acquainted with Joslah Caldwell, who was connect ed with the Little Heck & ’Port Smith Hallroad Company. Ho was asked the ouestlon: “Bid you ever bear from Caldwell tho disposition made of any bonds of tho Company?” when Mr. Blalno Interposed, saying that no had puttered, no doubt, in the estimation of good people because of tho allegation that he wan Interested In tho bonds that went to tho Union Pacific Hallroad Company. As there'was nothing else In rcsalutlon under which this Investigation was held, ho was entitled to a report on that sub ject alone. Ho did not M'nnt It complicated with anything else. He wanted it nnmlxcd with any other question. It should stand exactly wheru witnesses left It, He thought ho had a right, In tlio name of Justice, to make this demand. Tho witness McClure said ho knew nothing about the mutter that would bo In testimony. By Mr. Lawrence—Have you any knowledge or Information as to the sale of the seventy-five bonds concerning which the testimony has been taken? A.—l never knew that any bonds were sold, and all I know about them Is what Caldwell told mo. It was decided that beresay testimony could not bo taken, and tbo Commission adjourned.
