THE ERIE INVEM1TI9N. The Astonishing Story Told by R. Archdall O'Doherty. How the English Shareholders Obtained Control of the Boad?Directors and Officials Bribed to Besign?Senators Receiving $30,000? How the Honey Was Distribnted. * JAY GOULD ON THE STAND. TT<? Story of Last Tear's Coup d'Etat? Tammany Tactics in the Executive \ Committee?How "Iago" Lane Worked on Both Sides. . The Erie Investigation Committee appointed by the Assembly held Its tint session in this city yesterday, at the Fifth Avenne IloteL The investigation had previously been going on in Albany, but for the purpose of hastening the work and securing the presence of witnesses, most of whom reside here, it was translerred to New York. There were present yesterday Messrs. Babcoclc, Chairman; Lincoln, Wight, Crary aud Carpenter. Sergeant-at-Arms Gerlng was also in attendance. R. ARCHDALL O'DOHBBTT was the first witness called. The following is his testimony:?1 have no official connection with the Erie Railroad, and never had: I have some sc. qualntance with the workings of the company; In the early part of 1872 F. A. Lane saw some of the Erie directors, ana arranged with them that they should resign their positions In consideration of receiving some pecuniary considerations; he communicated with me and asked me If the English shareholders would pay for the control of the Erie road; I telegraphed to McHenry the same flight; his replies for some time were in dispute; he finally agreed to pay tne amount; in a telegram, dated the leth of February, he dedesired me to commuulcate with his agents in New York: 1 did so, speaking to Mr. Barlow first; 1 first obtained some pledges from Mr. Barlow that -the affair was to be kept secret, that the amount to be paid was not to be reduced, and that he (Mr. Barlow) was xo have no share In the profits 6f the transaction; the amount agreed to be paid was one and a half millions; the next proceeding was made by Mr. Barlow, who wanted the profit divided among four instead of three; 1 refused to give Mr. Barlow ANY OF THE PROFIT, pointing out to him that he could make as much money as he pleased trom his knowledge of what was going to occur; he replied that he did not want to speculate in the stock, but he sent a tele gram to Mcllenry, suggesting that It would be well to advance money to carry out my suggestions (the telegram, has been already published); tue result was that everything was arranged except the payment of the money; Mcllenry sent out a man by the name ol Crouch, who was placed at my disposal; not thinking he could be of any use to me I Introduced him to Messrs. Day ft Barlow, to assist them is the lobbying operations which were being carried on in Albanv; having been in the employ ot the Erie Railroad before as a sort ol newspaper cleric he communicated with the Erie directors and learned Lane's plans, which he IMPARTED TO GENERAL SICKLES; Sickles, nettled at being leit out of our plans, made arrangements and set Crouch to tlx matters with our directors, so that they could tender their resignations on the same terms obtained by Lane; Sickles then communicated with Mcllenry and offered to accomplish the Bama result 1 had proposed lor $300,000; Mcllenry and his mends tailed to make good their agreement with me; Sickles ^lien saw Lane and told him if he would n4t consent to accept the smaller amount his services would be altogether dispensed with; Lane was so frightened that he refused to put the amount in one of Bartow's telegrams, who also took part in the breach of iaith; Barlow then sent on for the money, and it was forwarded to Sickles, showing that the people on the other side would not trust Barlow; this exasperated Barlow and me alpo. and 1 telegraphed to Mcllenry-.?"Beware; present plans will result In loss of money;" I had made up my mind to go to Jay uouid la the meantime and reveal the plot, I was so angry; McHenry telegraphed ashing far more Iniormattou; Barlow soothed my angry feelings and quieted me; on the lltb or March we carried out our plan to remove Gould from the presidency and give McHenry absolute control of the Erie road; ha events or that day are pretty well known; we met at Barlow's house in the morning: there were Bresent Messrs. Barlow, Lane, Stebblns, General ix. General McClellan and others: after settling our plans. Lane and myself proceeded to the Erie offices; Lane organized the board, and, by the display ol extraordinary PRESENCE OF KIND and courage accomplished the revolntlon; the directors whom we purchased retired one by one; then <Gould was removed irom his position. General Dix was elected President, W. W. ssherman was appointed Treasurer, 8. L. M. Barlow counsel, and orders were given to the officers to recognize no other authority; meantime Gould showed light, the place was filled with rowdies and policemen, and lor a day or two everything was in confusion; on the second day General Sickles appeared on tae scene and entered Into negotiations with Gould, which resulted In everything being peaceably settled; Gould's consideration for doing this was, no doubt, an agreement which Sickles signed releasing Gould rrom all claims against hhm ay Erie; the existence of any sucn arrangement was strenuously denied, but I have read the letter irom General Sickles In which the agreement was alluded to: Lane, tearing that the plot would fail, told Jay Gould of the whole plan, so that Gould was as well Informed as ourselves when we walked In en the morning of the 11th; Gould relied on an English banker CALLING HIMSELF LORD GORDON, who deceived not only Gould, but Horace Greeley, Tom Bcott and Horace Clark; he claimed to control a majority of Erie stock, and asserted that he controlled Sickles; soon after that 1 went to England, having rejected an offer made by Barlow to take direction of measures which were about to be instituted for the recovery of money from Gould, as I did not believe In the sincerity of Mr. Barlow; 1 saw Barlow pay by check $07,500 to Lane's agent; Henry Thompson got $07,600; Archer got $40,uoo, Hilton $25,000, Otis, the Secretary. $25,000; White, Assistant 'treasurer, $25,000; Simmons, a director, got, 1 think, $50,000; Kamsdell and Slsson got nothing to resign; Hams <lell aid not resign ; ue is buii a director; mat was all the amount that was at first used to effect a chancre, though 1 beard that a larger amount was alterwards distributed?$450,000by Mr. McHeurv en the eve af the July election; I myself got $26,000; Gardner got $26,ooo, and Craucb got $50,000; we got our money trom McHenry ; Btschoffsheim furnished the money to bay up the directors; McHenry was the owner of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad. and for this reason wished to obtain control of Erie; on the eve of the last election, which took place in July, 1872, the Erie direc// tors placed in the hands of BlscnofTsheim A Goidschmld, of London, consolidated bondB for negotiation to the extent of $6,ooo,44fl; the Board was then composed of men who had not been elected by the stockholders; the election tonic place on the 9th of July; the net proceeds of the sale of the bonds was ta.ooo.uso; that would give about ninety-four and one-third per cent in currency for every $loo in gold; on account of these net proceeds liischoffhiieiin has paid to the company something over $4,000,900, leaving a large balance, which, 1 believe, rilt KKIK RAILROAD COMPACT WILL NITIR RKCKIVK, as the London bankers will doubtless repay themselves for their former outlay; the loan was Issued under a contract made on the 8th of May, 1872; the contract Is binding on the Erie Hallway until the year 1920; the mortgage under which these bonds were issued was for a total sum of $80,000,000 in gold; but $23,000,000 or this was required to replace mortgages already In existence; the amount realized by Ulschofnihelm A Goldschndd was about $900,000 In gold on the sale of the bonds; In addiI tlon they nave got one per cent half yearly on tho Interest; General Dlx was President of the road at the time the contract was made; 1 published In the Ttnux an Erie voucher, showing that Themas Harlow had drawn $69,000, apparently to pay General Sickles for services rendered by htm. (The voncher was hers produced.) Gn the back 01 the voucher you will see that the amount is charged to the transportation accoant, as tr the amount was for fuel and oil: the amount of Sickles' hotel bills paid by the Erie Railway was $36,000; a lew days alter Barlow drew the $69,000; he drew an additional $10,000 for lawyers' fees; United States Marshal Sharpc received over $1,000 for services to be rendered; Sharpe got an order from the Treasury Department in Washington to seize the books of the Erie Railroad, bnt (Secretary Boutwell rescinded the order before it was carried into effect; McHenry told me he bad given sickles a large sura to secure the passage of the bill at Albany; I have no personal ) knowledge of how it was used, but I know that $30,000 was used in March, immediately alter the coiip (PiUit; Archer, the Vice President of the ( Erie Railroad Company, was then in Albany, and he authorized the payment of $6,000 each to six Senators; I heard w. 11. Vandcrlult disbursed tne money personally; Barlow pocketed the insult he first received by the money being sent to Sickles, because he believed, by keeping still, he could step NKVV Y 01 tat* the position ue now occupies, tne customary commission for executing the bonds of the description I have named in England Is abeut a half per cent; the dav alter Gould's overthrow Barlow drew two bills on McHenry for $ftO,ooo in favor ol Gardner and myself; It's a pity that Mr. Barlow and Mr. Watson can't give their evidence until they hear what other people say ol them; under the arrangement made by McHenry and me the directors were to be more liberally rewarded lor resigning than they afterwards were; it was not nccessarV to expend anv money for the repeal of the Classification act; 1 have no personal knowledge of money being expended in Aloany; I never saw the original of the copies of tne voucners whicn J have given you. A. recess was taken at this point uutil lour o'clock. After Kecess. The committee reassembled at four o'clock and called Jay Gould to the stand. The examination was conducted by Mr. Whitney, who was evidently too young to worm very much out ol the wily expresideut. Mr. Gould,however,spoke very freely and told all he wanted to tell in a nonchalant manner, meanwhile quietly studying the cailbre of his examiners and wearing throughout a peculiar, sardonic smile, especially when telling how he adjourned a meeting of the Executive Committee just previous to the coup <VCtat or March, 1872. Ilia testimony was substantially hh lollows:? lie lore the meeting ol the directors on the 11th of March 1 had an interview with Mr. Duncan; there was nothing said about my resignation or any otner member of the hoard; 1 saw Mr. L. P. Morton at bis office in broad street; I went there because he was a large stockholder; the purport of our conversation was about the programme to be pursued; he lelt favorably inclined to the use ol his name on the new board: 1 think 1 told him 1 was in correspondence with Mr. J. S. Morgan; other names were mentioned, which I think are substantially the same as roferred to in my letter to Mr. Morgan; before I could have received an answer the Duncan negotiation came up, so 1 did not receive any answer; 1 met Mr. Duncan at his house; we talked about the reorganization and the conditions on which It should be carried out; the only condition, I think, was that all the large interests which ieed the road should be represented: there was nothing said about any money to be pata to anybody; the matter was to be voluntary on the part of the outgoing members; l met with Messrs. Duncan, Barlow and another within a duy or two alter; we met at Mr. barlow's house; it was either the last week in November or first week in December; WK AilRKKD TO HAVE A NEW BOARD; the names mentioned lor the new Board were Erastus Cornlpg. E. D. Morgan, George P. Alden, W. B. Duncan, Levi P. Morton, John Ewen, Asa Packer, Horace F. Clark, J. 8. Morgan, of Condon, and Dr. Eldridge. of Klmtra; my own name was to be added; we discussed the propriety oi the change and hew it would suit interests in Europe; we thought this programme was so eminently proper and in the Interests of the company that no gentleman would stand in the way of it, especially as the financial matters were pressing, and I agreed, in order to facilitate the matter, Bhould it be necessary, to have a law Dasscd repealing the classification: Mr. Duncan was about sroing to Europe, but we agreed to go on; I controlled about twenty-lour millions or doMars of stock; we thought none of the existing Board would reiuse to comply, but if they did I would have a law passed repealing the Classification act; there was no other remedy proposed, and if this were not done?why, It would be a very good thing for the "ins" and A VKUV BAD THING FOR THE OUTS; it was agreed I should prepare a.letter, embodying the names of the new directors, for Mr. Duncan to take to Europe; I had a conversation with Mr. Lano shortly alter my first conversation with Mr. Duncan; Lane told me there was a great conspiracy ; the whole force ol United States marshals and a majority of the directors were purchased and bound by an oath; this was in February; the road was to be handed over to tho Atlantic and Great Western road; there were one or two vacancies; somebody was to get up and move to fill these vacancies; I think Mr. Lane told me $300,000 was the price of certain men; Nathaniel K. Sands was one. 8. C. Hall was another; Mr. llall had a grudge against me on account of a contract In which lie was interested and which 1 opposed; Mr. Simons was to receive $50,000, Mr. J. White $26,000, Mr. Otis to receive 1 don't remember what; Hamsey, to my surprise, was the hardest man he had to bargain with: Mr. Denry Thompson was to receive $100,000; the money was to be paid, so Lane said, by the Atlantic and Great Western or Hischotmheim and Mcllenry; he said they counted on hiss (Lane); he said he had always been true to me, and they bad not money enough to change him; the pretext for the meeting was to be the settlement of a schedule between the Erie and Atlantic and Great Western; committees had been appointed and settled the matter previously, but it was stated that the Courts of Ohio required the anal nf f lia nnmnonv fA ho a ffl rorl hv nnloF nf t ?i <> board, and 1 was to call the meeting for that purpose; he sometimes talked one way and sometimes another; he pretended to be working against them and in my favor; the thing would block Itself, as without him they would not have a majority; he said he acquiesced, so as to know what was going on, to OET INTO TUB ENEMY'S CAMP; Sickles was to engineer the movement; Mr. E. K. Willard came to me in February and asked how I would like to give up my position; told me that I was worn out by great application to business, and if 1 would give over the control, or resign and acquiesce In a change, he was authorized to state tnat $600,neo would be placed to my credit: he was not at liberty to state by whom he was authorized; an attempt was then made to get a meeting ol the Executive committee, just as Lane said; this was in the fore part of March; I called a meeting of the Executive Committee; Messrs. Lane, Kamsdell, Archer and myself were the committee; they had the majority; the progrumme was that I was to resign; they would take the resignation before a meeting of the Board to be called for the purpose and so get control; I had the resolution confirming the settlement in my possession; I f ut the resolution. It was carried and I adjourned he meeting so quickly that their programme fell through; the adjournment was In the usual way; I thought I beard most yeas, so I declared the meeting adjourned, got up and went out; I don't know who made the motion to adjourn; I thought I heard it, so 1 put It and declared It carried. (This explanation was given In sucn Inimitable style as to cause tbe staid members of the committee to langh aloud; Mr. Gonld polished his glossy mustache first on one side and then on the other with thn bead of his walking stick, varying the performance occasionally by half closing his left eye with the aforesaid stick and taking a bead throngb his eyelashes and over the stick head at the members of the committee and tbe young man wbo acted as counsel.) The next step was a can lor a meeting signed by Mr. Archer, which was ns call at all, as tt should have been made by the President at the request of a certain number or directors; JAY GOULD'S FLAM. My theory was that, as the meeting was informal, the most they could do was come together and resign ; everything they undertook to do infilling vacancies would be void; the only resignations would be those of the conspirators, so that the only legal directors lelt would be my own friends and tnose who did not attend; the only legal directors wonld be Messrs. Oanson, Sherwood, Drake, Dr. Eldrldge, Archer, Ramsdell and myself; 1 knew the meeting was to be called the evening before, or rather Satnrdav evening, the 9th; on Monday, the 11th, I called a meeting for Tuesday, the 12th, of those gentlemen I have named; at that meeting we should have filled up the vacancies caused by the resignations of the day before; the meeting would be or my friends, for I had conti ol as perfectly as ever; when we held one side of the building by force and they the other Dr. Kldndge came tome and urged a settlement; said he nad had a conversation with Mr. Harlow, and he had no donbt asatlsiactory arrangement could be made; I Immediately acquiesced; he had a second interview with Barlow, and they agreed to accede to my terms; the memorandum containing the terms was partly In my handwriting, partly in Mr. Sherwood's, and, I think, some in Sickles'; General Sickles took It; I never saw It since; he said lie had placed It among the archives of the company; the substance was that everything that had been done thA /lav ItAfnr* ahniilil ha vnid I wantn rail a nnnot. lag for the following day of the legal directors, and the vacancies were to he filled by thcBe men; they were to retain all the employes wbe had been loyal to me; the advances 1 had made, amounting to $1,000,000 or $1,500,000, should bo repaid; the bonds I was on should be relieved, and I was to hold the releases ol the company which I had in my possession, and the counsel, Messrs. Shearman A Field, were to carry on the existing suits; 1 had an Injunction ready to serve at any time, and I made up my mind to let the matter go to that point and stop the meeting; I had placed my resignation in the hands of Mr. Greeley; he knew all about this movement of Sickles, and I placed my resignation in his hand to be used at the proper time; Mr. Lane said it might De necessary to use money with Sickles, as 1CELK8 WOULD OO AWT WAT that would pay best; I do not know ol any money being paid in this matter; within a week of the 12th of March, at the meeting 1 called, 1 closed all connection with the company, and have not been near the offices since; 1 think the Dix Board,which was the ad interim Board, made a contract with Bischofishelm for the sale or some of the company's stock; I made a contract with J. 8. Morgan embracing a negotiation of these so-called consolidated mortgage bonds. To a member of the Committee?During the session of '72 I went up one morning; was there a couple of hours, most of which time I consumed in getting my dinner and getting ready to come home; I resisted the passage of the Classification Repeal act tip to a certain time: 1 only took such uiinomm OR n UUiU lUttftC II JIUUIIVJ VII** MW ?'' v ? dollar to any Senator or any member; 1 only naod the evidences of the popularity af the management of the company as testified to by people along the line ol the road; I knoar nothing or my own knowledge as to any money being paid for any railroad measures at Albany; I don't, as a general thing care abont Inquiring into other people's business To the Counsel?When I went up to Albany went fer a railroad ride and a little relief, and a> to make a personal Inspection ol the situation met Senator Madden and Mr. Maker, of Trc_ won't swear that I did not see any one else ;Kn not register my name; If I had gone up pa"!* and paraded myself, It might have been salt' actuated hv Improper motives, you know the committeemen grinned as If tney did kn"'"> so I went up quietly and took a view of th b,,ctlon: I was not In the Hoard when a resolnt? passed to pay $*>,000 to William H. Vandpuni.Y expenses attending legislation at Albany, is, with Mr. could, at the close of his exanlnaUi uillce. l complacently bade the committee "good (it was exactly nine minutes after six withdrew, arter which the committee ad meet again this morning at tea o'clock. tK HERALD.
