THE ERIE INVESTIGATION. The Astonishing Story Told by R. Arch dull O'Doherty. How the English Shareholders Obtained Control of the Boad?Directors and Officials Bribed to Besign?Senators Beceiving $30,000? How the Money Was Distribnted. < JAY GOULD ON THE STAND. His Story of Last Year'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 nrst session in this city yesterday, at the Fifth Avenne Hotel. 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 wus transferred to New York. There were present yesterday Messrs. Babcock, Chairman; Lincoln, Wight, Crary and Carpenter. Sergeant-at-Arins Oerlng was also in attendance. K. AKCIIDALL O'DOHBRTT was the first witness called. The following is his testimony:?1 have no oillclal connection with the Erie Railroad, and never had; I have some acquaintance 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 rBbould resign their positions in consideration of receiving some pecnnlary 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 Bame night; his replies for some time were indispnte; he finally agreed to pay the amount; in a telegram, dated the 16th of February, be dedesired me to communicate with his agents in New York: I did so, speaking to Mr. Barlow first; I 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 TUE TBOFIT, pointing out to him that he could make as much money as tic pleased irom his knowledge of what was going to occur; he replied that he did not want to speculate in the stock, but he sent a telegram to Mcllenry, suggesting that It would be well to advance money to carry out my suggestions (the telegram, h is 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 conld be of any use to me 1 introduced him to Messrs. Day & Barlow, to assist them is the lobbying operations which were being carried on in Albany; having been in the employ or the Brie Bail road before as a sort ol newspaper clerk he communicated with the Erie directors and learned Lane's plans, which he IMrARTKD TO OKNBRAL SICKLES; Sickles, nettled at being left out of our plans, made arrangements and set Crouch to fix matters with our directors, so that they conld tender their resignations on the same terms obtained by Lane; hickies then communicated with McHeury and offered to accomplish the same result I had proposed lor $aoo,ooo; Mcllenry ana his mends tailed to make good their agreement with me; Sickles then saw Lane and told him if Iia wnnirl not. rnnaant. tn aoeant the smaller amouut 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 faith; 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 I telegraphed to McHenry"Beware; present plans will result In loss of money;" I had made up my mind to go to Jay Uould la the meantime and reveal the plot, I was so angry; McHenry telegraphed asking for more iniormation; Barlow soothed my angry feelings and quieted me; on the lltb of March we carried out our plan to remove Gould from the presidency and give McHenry absolute control of the Erie road; ho events of that day are pretty well known; we met at Barlow's house in the morning: there were present Messrs. Barlow, Lane, Stebhins, General l)lx, General McClellan and others: after settling our plans. Lane and myself proceeded to the Erie offices; Lane organized the board, and, by the display of extraordinary PKK8ENCK or MIND and courage accomplished the revolution; the directors whom we purchased retired one by one; tbcn Gould waa removed irom his position, General Dix was elected President, W. W. ohermau was appointed Treasurer, 8. L. M. Barlow counsel, and orders were glvea to the officers to recognize no otber authority; meantime Gonld showed fight, the nliuw was filled with rowdies and nollcemen. and lor a day or two e very thing was la confusion; an the second day General Sickles appeared on tae scene and entered Into negotiations with Gould, which resulted In everything being peaceably Bottled; Gould's consideration for doing this was, no donbt, an agreement which Sickles signed releasing Gould from all claims against him ay Erie; the existence of any such 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 fall, told Jay Gould of the whole plan, so that Gould was as well Informed as ourselves when we walked In on the morning of the 11th; Gould reded on an English banker CALLING HIMSELF LORD GORDON, who deceived not only Gould, but Horace Greeley, Tom Scott and Horace Clark; he claimed to control a majority of Erie stock, and asserted that he controlled Sickles; soon after that I 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; I saw Barlow pay by check $67,500 to Lane's agent: Henry Thompson got $67,500; Archer got $40,000, Hilton $25,000, Otis, the Secretary, $25,000: White, Assistant Treasurer, $25,000; Simmons, a director, got, I think, $60,ooo; Ramsdell and Slsson got nothing to resign; RamsHell did not resign; be is still a director; tnat was all the amount that was at first used to effect a change, though 1 heard that a larger amount was alterwards distributed?$450,000 by Mr. McHenry en the eve of the July election; I myseir got $25,000; Gardner got $'25,000, and Creuch got $60,000; we got our money from McHenry ; Bischoffshetm furnished the money to buy up the directors; McHenry was the owner of the Atlantic and Greut 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 directors placed in the hands of Btsciioffshcim A Goidschmid, of London, consolidated bonds for negotiation to the extent or $6,000,440; the Board was then composed or men who had not been elected by the stockholders; the election toe* place on the Dth of July; the net proceeds of the sale ef the bonds was $6,ooo,o8o; that would give about ninety-lour and one-third per cent in currency for every $loo in gold; on account of these net proceeds BlschoffSheirn has paid to the company something over $4,000,900, leaving a large balance, which, I believe, TUB KKIK RAILROAD COMPANY WILL NEVER RECEIVE, as the London bankers will doubtless repay themselves for their former outlay; the loan was issued under a contract made on the 8th or May, 1872; the contract Is binding on the Erie Hallway until the year 1020; the mortgage under which these bonds were issued was for a total sum or $80,000,000 in gold; but $423,000,000 of this was required to replace mortgages already In existence; the amount realized by Blschoffshelm A Goldschmid was about $000,000 In gold on the sale of the bonds; in addition 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; I published in the Tttii*s an Erie voucher, showing mill mamma imrion nnii ur?u rov,uw, b|>(ibi vumj to pay General Sickles for services rendered by him. (The voncher was here i rodueed.) on the back 01 the voucher you will see that the amount la charged to the transportation accoant, aa If the amount was for fuel and oil: the amount or Sickles' hotel bills paid by the Erie Railway was 936,000; a lew days alter Barlow drew the $&y,uoo; he drew an additional $10,000 for lawyers' fees; United States Marshal Sharpe received over |l,ooo for services to be rendered; Sharpe got an order Irom the Treasury Department in Washington to seize the hooks of the Krie Railroad, but Secretary Boutwell rescinded the order before It was carried Into effect; Mcllenry told me he dad given sickles a large sum to secure the passage of the bill at Albany; I have no personal knowledge of how It was used, but I know that k $30,000 was used In March, limnedia'ely alter the / coiip a'euit; Archer, the Vice i'resldsnt of the k Erie Railroad Company, was then in Albany, and he authorized the payment of $6,ooo each to six Senators; I heard W. H. Vanderbilt 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 Y01 lntc the position he now occupies, tne customer/ commission for executing the bonds of the description I have named In England is abeut a hall per cent; the dav alter Gould's overthrow Barlow drew two bills on McHenry for In favor ol Oardner and myself; It's a pity that Mr. Barlow and Mr. Watson can't give their evidence until the/ 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 tbey alterwards were; It was not necessary to expend any money for the repeal of the Classification act; 1 have uo personal knowledge of money being expended In Albany; I never saw the original of the copies 01 tne vouchers winch 1 have given vou. 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 calibre of his examiners and wearing throughout a peculiar, sardonic snnlc, especially when telling how he adjourned a meeting of the Executive Committee just previous to the coup rt'Ctat of March, 1871 Ills testimony was substantially us lollows:? Before the meeting ol the directors on the 11th of March I had an interview with Mr. Duncan; tiiere was nothing said about my resignation or any other member of the board; 1 saw Mr. L. P. Morton at his 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 nls name on the new board: 1 think I told lnm 1 was in correspondence with Mr. J. S. Morgan; other names were mentioned, which I think are substantially the same as referred to in my letter to Mr. Morgan; before Iceuld have received an answer the Duncan negotiation came up. so 1 did not receive any auswer; 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 feed the road should be represented; there was nothing said about any money to be paid to anybody; the matter was to be voluntary on the part or the outgoing members; 1 met with Messrs. Duncan, barlow and another within a day or two after; we met at Mr. barlow's house; it was either the last week in November or first week in December; WB A11RKKD TO HAVB A NKW BOARD; the names mentioned lor the new Board were Erastus Cornipg. E. D. Morgan, George P. Alden, W. b. Duncan, Levi P. Morton, John Ewen, Asa Packer, Horace F. Clark, J. S. Morgan, of London, and Dr. Eldridge. of Klmira; my own name was to be added; we discussed the propriety ot 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 1 agreed, in order to facilitate the matter, should it be necessary, to have a law passed repealing the classification; Mr. Duncan was about going to Europe, but we agreed to go on; I controlled about twenty-lour millions of dollars 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 C1nH.4iflciit.inn net : there wan nn other remedy nro posed, and if this were not done?why, it would be a very good thing for the '*ina" and A VKBY BAD TQ1NO FOB TIIK OUTS; it was agreed I should prepare a.letter, embodying the names oi the new directors, for Mr. Duncan to take to Europe; I had a conversation with Mr. Lane shortly alter my first conversation with Mr. Duncan; Lane told me there was a great conspiracy ; the whole force of United Stales 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,ooo was the price of certain men; Nathaniel K. Sands was one. 8. 0. Hall was another; Mr. Hall had a grudge against me on account of a contract In which he was interested and which 1 opposed; Mr. Simons was to receive $50,000, Mr. J. White $'25,000, Mr. Otis to receive I dou't remember what; Kamsey, to my surprise, was the hardest man he had to bargain with; Mr. Henry Thompson was to receive $100,000; the money was to be paid, so Lane said, by the Atlantic and Great Western or Uischoirshelm and Mcllenry; he said they counted on him (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 Atlantio and Great Western; committees had been appointed and settled the raattor previously, bat it was stated that the Courts of Ohio required the seal of the company to be affixed by order of the 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, bo as to know what was going on, to get into tiie enemy's camp? Sickles was to engineer the movement; Mr. E. K. Willtrd 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 I would give over the control, or resign and acquiesce In a change, he was authorized to state that $600,000 would be placed to my credit; be was not at liberty to state by whom he was authorized; nit m%>i/vuipk w no izuuu uiauc ?u ^ci? n iucuviu^ V* ??? Executive Committee, just as Lane said; this was In the fore part or March: I called a meeting or the Executive Committee; Messrs. Lane, Rumsdell, Archer and myself were the committee; they had the majority; the programme was that I was to resign; they would talce 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 put the resolution, it was carried and 1 adjourned the meeting so quickly that their programme fell through; the adjournment was in the usual way; I thought I heard 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 such Inimitable style as to cause the staid members of the committee to laugh alouu; Mr. Gonld polished his glossy mustache first on one side and tnen on the other with the head of his walking stick, varying the performance occasionally by half closing his left eye with the aforesaid stick and taking a bead through his eyelasheB and over the stick head at the members of the committee and the young man who acted as counsel.) The next step was a call for a meeting signed by Mr. Archer, which was no call at all, as It should have been made by the President at the request of a certain number of directors; JAY GOULD'S FLAM. My theory was that, as the meeting was Informal, the most they could do was come together and resign ; every thing 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 those who did not attend; the only legal directors would be Messrs. Gauson, Sherwood, Drake, Dr. Eldrldge, Archer, Ramsdell and myself; 1 knew the meeting was to be called the evening before, or rather Saturday evening, the eth; on Monday, the lltb. I called a meeting for Tuesdav. the 12th. of those gentlemen I have named; at that meeting we should have filled up the vacancies cansed by the resignations of the day before; the meeting would be of 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. Kid ridge came to me and urged a settlement; said he nad had a conversation with Mr. Harlow, and he had no doubt asatisiactory arrangement could be made; 1 Immediately acquiesced; he bad 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 Raw it since; he said he bad placed It among the archives of the company; the substance was that everything that had been done the day before should be void; I wasto call a meeting for the following day of the legal directors, and the vacancies were to be filled by these men; they were to retain all the employes who bad been loyal to me; the advances I 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 1 had In my possession, and the counsel, Messrs. Shearman A Field, were to carry on the existing snlts; I 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 ICILKS WOUI.D 00 ANT 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 I called, 1 closed all connection with the company, ana have not been near the offices since; I think the Diz Board,which was the ad interim Board, made a contract with Bischotrshelm for the sale of some of the company's stock; I made a contract with J. 8. Morgan embracing a negotiation of these Bo-called consolidated mortgage bonds. To a member of the Committee?During the session of '72 1 went up one morning; was there a conpie of hours, most of which time I consumed In getting my dinner and getting ready to come home; 1 resisted the passage of the Classification Repeal act up to a certain time: I only took such measures as would make It public; 1 did not give a dollar to any Senator or any member; I only nsed the evidences of the popularity of the management of the company as testified to by people along the line ot the road; I know nothing or my own knowledge os to any money being paid for any railroad measures at Albany; I don't, as a general thing, care about inquiring Into other people's business. To the Counsel?When I went up to Albany 1 went for a railroad ride and a little relief, and also to make a personal Inspection of the situation; 1 met Senator Madden and Mr. Baker, or Troy; 1 wun't swear that 1 did not see any one else; I did not register my name; If I had gone uppuhliclj and paraded myself, It might have been said I was actuated r>v Improper motives, you know~-(here the committeemen grinned as ir tney did know) ? so I went up quietly and took a view or the situation; I was not In the Hoard when a resolution wiu passed to pay $30,000 to William H. Vandorbilt for expenses attending legislation at Albany. Mr. Gould, at the close of his examination, mosl complacently hade the committee "good morning' (it was exactly nine minutes alter six P. M.) ami withdrew, after which the committee adjourned tc meet again this morning at ten o'clock, 4 IK HERALD. SATURDAY, SHIPWRECKS.
