THE ERIE INVESTIGATION. Farther Development of Proofs of the Pay ments Made for "Extra Legal Services." One Million Dollars to William M. * Tweed in Three Years. ""legislative Expenses" The Delavaa House and Congress Hall Items? Archer'* Contracts? The Southern Im provement Company. THE DIVIDEND THAT SWELLED THE DEDT. ?n the resumption of tke Investigation of the iflktn of the Bile Railway Company yesterday morning all of the committee were present and also Mr. S. L. M. Barlow, counsel for the directors; Mr. WllMam A. Beach, counsel for the stockholders, and Mr. Stick* me j, counsel for the committee. The testimony watch was elicited from the witnesses daring the ?forenoon was not of a very startling natort, Dot bettor and more complete achievements were hoped for by the .senators. What are now most earnestly desired are the names of the legislators who were influenced by tbe money wbloh was used tor lobbying and other equally corrupt purposes. Mr. Watson, president of tbe company, was present daring most of tbe session, and looked upon tbe tpsoceedlngs with a smiling, bnt at times rather disturbed countenance. Tbe first witness was MB. SAMUEL D. BABCOIK, ? director, who testified In relation to the declara tion of tbe dividend. He said : ? I was one of tbe fear directors who opposed declaring a dividend and voted against It; 1 had no doubt of tbe cor rectness of tbe financial statement made by tbe President, but could not agree to distribute among tbe stockholders money which was needed for re pair* of tbe road; the proceeds of the $10,000,000 - convertible bonds were to have been devoted to construction ; I don't know that they were used to yay tbe dividend ; I think, and I give my opinion as a banker, that tbe commission paid Btectioffs. helm A Co. was excessive. The larger part of tbe Erie stock is beld abroad and the reason for declaring tbe dividend was to show tbe foreign holders of stock tbe good moult of tbe change in tbe directors, and tbe honest and economical management which tbe sew ones had Initiated; I was opposed to the divi dend because 1 thought the net earnings Bhould be need in liquidating the debt and for construction ; If there had been no heavy debt I would have voted for tbe dividend ; 1 believe a considerable sum was apent for "construction but 1 do not tbink that anything was charged to the construction account tbat did not add to the permanent value or the property of the Erie Railway ; 1 considered the statement of the net earnings oi the road over the signatures of the directors would bave the same moral effect in strength ening tbe stock of the compauy as the declaration of a dividend, except in London, where such a large amount of the slock 1b neld; 1 believe tbe directors had a legal right to declare the dividend, but I considered that it wonld have been much better policy to have rednoed the floating debt; it is perfectly right lor a company, if It has ?pent its net earnings tn extending tracks or other permanent construction, to declare a dividend ou tbe net earnings and pay it out or tbe sale of new bends Issued to cover the necessary expenditure ; ibis woald of course Increase the indebtedness of tbe company to the amount of the dividend paid; In a company which changed hands very often 1 consider that the pro tits for the current time should tie distributed among the stockholders or with equal propriety should be need in paying elf the floating debt or the company or for permanent improvement; the Increased value of stock in the latter cases would indemnity the stockholders lor the lack of a dividend; It was represented to me tbat the disgorgings of (ion id were laid aBlde to pay the floating debt, and hence the earnings could be devoted to paying a divi dend ; I bave no Idea or the value that could be t e ailaed on the stocks which were restored to tbe company. MR. O. H. P. ARCfi Kit was recalled to be examined in relation to the amount or bis profits under the rreight contract which he held. He read tbe following statement of his receipts and expenditures :? Becclpto from the Eric Kailwav Company for the year HOT 9901.048 Expenditure!) tor the Erie Railway Company tor Ibe year 1872 889,210 Profits 913,838 Mr. Archer declared emphatically that the con tract was not profitable enough to suit him, and tbat he was anxious to relinquish It. In response to a question by one oi tbe committee he said I did not say on my Ibrmer examination that I was losing by this contract, bnt that I did not want to i keep It. Mr. Lincoln? Would yen be wiiUng to make It over to tbe committee and let them remit on the Mune terns that you have enjoyed ? (Laughter.) Witness? Yes, I would, and (excitedly) you could not run it at present prices so thai it would 1 Ry; the new system of auditing accounts by i esldent Watson has added $3,000 a month to the expanses of the business; there are not brains j enctgh among the station agents or the Erie Kail- 1 Way to make ont tbe complicated statements la- I Bis tea on by Watson ; the dividend was not earned ; daring 1872, twenty-six engines were damaged by the lire which destroyed the machine shop, and Bone of them have been replaced, only part or them bave been repaired; they were a year in arrears in dividend on their preferred stock and tbe one and three-quarters per cent dividend on common stock should have been applied to the arrears on common stock; on the day before e dividend was declared I saw Mr. i bite in the Erie ofTlce and he aald they would have to effect a loan for the com pany of $100,000 for current expenses, ahd Mr. : Shearman, the Treasarer, asked me to negotiate i It, and I did negotiate It with Mangam's Trust Com pany ; I have ne knowledge or tbe rate of com- i mission paid for the kind or negotiation which was { made by UlschotTshelm A Co. ; its object was to I bring up the price or stock in the market; 1 was ! Informed that the new directors who came in were I nominated by Bischoirshetui A Co. To Mr. Barlow?' The dividend was based npon | Mr. Watson's statement of the atflilrs of the com- | pany; 1 did not examine the accounts from which { It was made, and never saw them; I was Vice C esldent of the Board of Directors from Decern - r, 1871, until April, 1872. To Mr. Babcock? In February, 1872, the project . of tbe South Improvement Company was proposed ; $o me by Mr. Watson; the capital was to be $10,000,000: it was supposed that it would be able Co control all shipments of oil from the oil regions; J they proposed contracts with the New York Cen tral, Pennsylvania aud Erie reads, the three trunk i lines, by which 40 per barrel was to be paid as ; freight; the South Improvement Company was to have a rebate on these rates or f l 40 per barret, for which they were to guarantee alxty oeven per cent or tbe oil freights to tbe Pennsylvania road, and to divide freights on tbe balance of the oil product between the Central and Krle whether they carried the , oil or not; the result would have been to give tbe control or tbe sale or oil to the agents or abe Southern Improvement Company in New York, besides giving that company $1 40 on nearly every barrel of oil produced; the contract was made, out i the project never was executed : some idea of the extent of this monopoly may be gathered rrom the |hct tbat about ?, 000,000 barrels or oil were then being shipped anuually. After giving this testimony Mr. Archer took bis handkerchief out the crown or his hat, which was lying on the table, and wiped his forehead. _ He was then questioned by Mr. Htlckney regard ing the voucher produced on the day before in the presence of the committee, and recognized his sig nature. He said : ? I approved tne expenditure, sup posing It to be for legislative purposes ; I don't know who received the amounts, or what the amounts sot opposite "Delavan House and "Con grew Hall" were for; I did approve them without any knowledge of what the payment* were for ex oept ujxtn the statements of Mr. bherwood ; 1 have JM> kaoff ledge of the payments to Mr. Barlow - I met Mr. Dutcher while lit Albany: I ?w nim in relation to Brie matters' I Also saw some of tbe gentlemen whose names are on the vouchers; when I approved tbe Mem of expenditure denominated "Iiclavan Bouse*' ($1,000) ; I made no inquiries as to whether tt wae a bill far oae day or lor more; I thought however, that jt was a large bill; whea Mr. Sher wood said that the amounts were for legislative expense! I supposed he meant for lobbying pur poses? that la, to influence members; 1 don't, know whom;! never did anything in that line. (Laughter.) Mr. Archer's exantlnatlon was over, and, brush lag his hat very carefuily, he left the seat lor the MXt witness, wbo was ?h. awnrr f. Aim a. On being iworn he testified that he had charge of the delivery of freight lor tbe Eastern Division of the Krle Railway ; in mi 1 was in charge or the bureau of records ; I then wae in Mr. Kisk's private ?dee ; I have had knowledge of the payment of cer Aain *iuu?ol mrntj /or ' otivicti," J have seen tire von cb era; I have known or payments to cover the expenses of loDbyiug, at least it was a notorious lact in the Krt'e office that the money of these vouebeni wan paid for these purposes ; to my personal knowledge they were paid only for what were styled "legal services;" the first voucher pajable to Tweed that I saw wan In Oc tober. i860; It was for $100,000 tor "legal services," and was paid la four notes or $*i6tooo each; the first note payable in teu days, the second in twenty, the third In thirty and the foirth in forty ; the next voucher was for $10,700, paid to William M. Tweed; that was about the time of the Fenian raid ; the next after that wan for $19, 000, charged to the Demo cratic Htate Convention of i?w ; the voucher aaid, "Expenses from Hew York to Rochester and re turn;'1? (laughter)? in the next year the same amount was paid by vouchers for the same pur pose; this sum of money would pay the passage of about fifteen hundred persons; the vouchers came along at Irregular intervals after that, which would lead to the belief that Tweed had as much money as he wanted at any time that be wanted it; the last voucher was lor $0,000 paid to Tweed Just before Fl$k war killed; In 18T1 the vouchers made payable to Tweed showed snms amounting to $440,000 for "extra legal services;" they do not appear upon the books of the company: 1 made out the vouchers, and thus am aware of the payments ; from 1M8 to 1871 about one million dollars were paid Tweed for a<extra legal expenses ;" I can produce records of these transactions and alBO the trial balances of the nooks If I can have time to search for them. In order to give the witness opportunity to pro duce the proota which be had preserved the com mittee at thlB point took a recess, and directed him to appear for further examination at lour o'clock. Afternoon Session* The committee resumed at four o'clock and pro ceeded to examine Simon Stephens, who testified as follows 1 reside in the city of New York, and had some oonnectlon with the change in Eric road management in March, 1872 ; ou the 12th of March 1 bad a conversation relative to the legality or Mr. Oould'B poisltlon, and was asked whether It was legal by General Sickles ; I said if the company would guarantee to Mr. Gonld immunity for his acts he might be induced to resign : I was acting as counsel to Mr. Sickles: 1 saw Mr. Gould and presented him with the proposition, ask ing his resignation and guaranteeing htm certain conditions: he did resign, and I received $2,600 for my services; I beard next day that a large sum sf money had been spent in affecting the change ; 1 Haw Mr. Sickles In Washington, and he told me that he had received vouchers for $68,009; General Sickles said that the result of tne overthrow would largely determine tiie Presiden tial election ; I don't know whether he expected to receive assistance from the government or not; I don't know that General Sickles came over pur posely to attend to Erie or not; he nad a new wife, and he wanted to show her around; he asked leave of ab sence to come home: his leave of absence had no connection with Erie; he met Mr. BischoffShelm in London, and the matter was arranged relative to Erie; General Sickles Bald he hoped some time to become United States Senator, and he thought his action In regard to Erie would hasten the time ; 1 don't know whether he aspired to a higher posi tion or not; I don't know what services Mr. w. K. Chandler performed In connection with his name appearing upon one of the vouchers; Sickles ?ald to me, "What onght I to charge for what 1 have done?" I said, "You ought to charge ?60,000," uud he said, "1 think so. too; when I was in London I was told by BlSchoffBheim & Co. that a large Bum would be expended to produce a change; they had heard labulous accounts', of the lortnnes made by persons who had oontrol or the road at the time, and they wished to get their friends In; if the assistance rendered by Bischoflteheim to the company was of a purely speculative nature, 1 don't think Erie would bo entitled to recompense them. To Mr. Beach? 1 told Mr. Gould when I made the proposition of resigning to him that the release 1 offered to him was not Intended to cover any fradu lent transaction. Henry 1*. Antes was recalled, and produced an account of sums paid by tlie Erie Company lor iegal services during the year 1869-70; he also produced vouchers for the month preceding the change 1 have seen a eopv or the general legal disburse ments or the road np to the time of the date of the vouchers; I heard that the $60,000 worth of coal once distributed by Mr. Gould among the poor of the city was paid for out of the Erie treasury and charged to legal expenses. President Watson was re-examined and ex plained an error into which he had lalien during tils previous examination, by stating that certain vouchers were signed by a man named Fenlssy, when sncb was not the case.

A "Grand Bounce" in Stock9 Yesterday. Secretary Richardson Said To Be About to Relieve "the Boys." Fearful Stringency in the Money Market. Bnptnre in the Gold Pool, but Another Pool Form ing?How Long Are Merchants To Be at the Mere j of Spectators 1? One Per Cent a Day for Moneys-Can the Government Control the Priee of Gold T? A Windfall of Ten Million* in Greenbacks Supposed To Be Coining? Two Small Fail* ores at the Stock Board. Brokers got up very bright and early yesterday morning and rushed down to their accustomed haunts. There was promise of a fleid day, and 1 there were many very well informed persons who predicted a general smash up. The upward ten dency of gold frightened many who, under usual circumstances, might have been considered very easy-going, peaceably-disposed people. But, with all, there was a certain sort of feverish tendency to get excited, which boded no good either to the market or the general community. Parties met each other on street corners, and buttonholed ? each other very extensively to exchange views as to the state of things. There was a general inter change ol ideas, which, of course, left tilings pre cisely in the position they bad been before, but which, at all events, proved one fact? that there was something out of the usual way going on, something which everybody would have liked to be able to foretell. When the market opened gold went down, and continued to fall by eighths until it got just over into the slxteens. This looked from the beginning very bad for those who had been reportcu as hold ing immense quantities of gold In thoir own Inter est but against the Interest of the community in general. It was whispered around that the gold pool had unloaded apd that the members of it were sellfng^ut as rapidly as they could. Tliis may have been so, but there was ANOTHER HI OB TO THE 8TOKT, and which shows that 1/ the original pool burst there was a number of other gentlemen who were quite willing to take the other pool's chances and continue the game. This theory obtains some confirmation from the fact that all the gold that was offered was speedily bought up. It is said, and the Herai.d man has it from the best possible authority, that one Arm yesterday bougtit In $20,000,000 of gold and held It. It was also said that Mr. Jay Gould, that great little man, is a silent partner in the ilrni which consummated thlB transaction, lr this be true, and it no doubt is, Mr. Jay (Jould must be at the hottcm of tills second pool, with the hope to send gold a great deal higher than it lias yet beeu within the past few days. It is pretty certain that though gold did go down to some extent yesterday, ami that some body was hurt, the demand lor it was extensive and heavy. TUE REASON OF OOI.D'S A8CENDANCY. ? The chief and most popular reason assigned for the rise in gold Is the excess of the Imports over the exports. It required no very deep calculation to see that the tremendous imports would cause a proportionate demand for the precious metal. The question was with those who bought It up when they saw the demand coming, whether they would be strong enough to carry it. With Imports trans cending by millions the exportB the use of gold becomes imperative, anil it must be bought. Those who hold It under these circumstances ought to be able to exact their own terms, and, to some extent, they have done so. But the demand usually falls a little toward the middle of the week, and it niav have been allowed to fall slightly so as to rise all the higher as the demand increases for the depar ture of the Sal unlay steamers for Europe. These are the opinions oi men on Wall street, who pre- I tend to kuow, and have every opportunity of knowing, what they talk about. To these it seems I most probable that gold will not tail below the low- 1 est price paid yesterday, but that it will continue to rise, others who argue in the same strain still fui ther add that so long as our railroads keep up i i the price or Ireights as they have lately been doing, i the imports must continue to be greatly in excess 1 of the exports. THE FARMERS OF THE WEST cannot afford to shin their produce East at the ' enormous prices which are demanded by the rail- ! roads for ireights; and, in the meantime, not only they themselves suffer, but the railroads and the people suffer almost equally with them. I lie onlv class which is benetlted are the bulls who, without conscience? a thing it seems ridic ulous to look lor nowadays? trade on the necessities of the public. This has come to be such a usual kind of speculation that it is hardly looked upou any longer as sinful and wrong. The mer chants, it is true, suffer severely; but, after ail, the real loss will react upou the people at last, who i will have to buv t lie articles at ati Increased rate i and pay their hard-earned money Cherelor. That i is, unless, as during tue war, societies l>e organized to resist the sale ol loreign importations; bit this is, of course, too ridiculous to be seriously dis cussed. .The Herald man saw a prcmlnent financier in , Wall street yesterday, and asked him Ills opinion about this gold matter which is setting so many people by the ears. This gentleman said that tn the present state of affairs, with speculators able at any moment to ruin honest men, there was no help j for it anil things hud to go on as they had gone. But this gentleman said he had A THEORY ABOUT OOLD GAMBLINU. He added that he thought he knew of a way in ! which gold gambling might be stopiwd. "Suppose,"' he said, "that the Custom House were to take this matter of gold into Its hands. The ' government must always be stronger than mere speculators, stronger than anv clique. Gold, say is 1 quoted at 118 to-day. suppose the Sub-Treasury announces that it will sell gold at U4. Do you think for one moment that these speculators who alter all, are very few and iu themselves weak* would attempt to control the street against the government?'' "But would not this be recognizing the principle that gold is the staudard above greenbacks?" ! "The principle was recoi?nized|fr.?i the day that : the government went back on its own legal tender i by making the duty on imports payable in gold, i Here it made a distinction between gold and greenbacks, which was latal to tne government i currency. But whether it would be recognizing a new principle or not, what woo.d prevent the I government offering gold in this manner always at 1 some slight price below the speculator's price It '? would do the very thing that Cougress has passed useless laws about? stop speculation in gold ' This theory mav betaken for what it is worth and perhaps as one of the evidences of insanity which pervade the gold market lust at present In the Gold Room yesterday the excitement was very Intense during the morning. Then It was a mooted point as to whether the quotations were to be sent up to ridiculously higti prices or 1 whether everybody was to be relieved by its tailinc down. It took B TflE DOWN TlUN fortunately, and if everybody was not satisfied the majority was, at any rate. The dreaded storm had passed over lor a day and the morrow might take care ol Itself. But this does not mean to sav that everybody's mind is relieved. Far from it There was little talked ol during the afternocn amongst ??re particularly take an Interest in the price ol the yellow charmer. Still there was one thing about a block off which Interested Wall street very intensely, and, in lact, the whole country. This was the money market, winch, as the day grew on, became more and m*re stringent. In the early morning money could be got at one eigiith ; but as the day advauced money ! got tighter and went to one-quarter, then to one- I half, then still on live-eighths, and shortly before 1 | three o clock money was bought for a dav at three- I quarters per cent. The Hekai.d man saw one gen- ' tleman who borrowed $10,000 at one per cent until ' to morrow. It Is almost unnecessary, we presume. 1 ' to say that this interest is above and beyond the seven per cent allowed by law. ' here is a secret, of course, to this stringency in money. Two reasons are given lor it. It is said on one hand that some "tall" speculators have been bor rowing money irom the banks until there is really VERY I.ITTI.E MONEY I, RET IN THE STREKT. and brokers to cover their -contract*, which of course, they must pay, are obliged to boi row money at these ruinous rates. That is to sav. a gentleman with $100,000 could go into the street and get $,fo) !or his money on the best of seointy and without the slightest trouble. On the other hand, It is said that the cause ol the stringency Is that the farmers who make tnelr settlements throughout the country 011 April 1 have been draw ing tnelr money from the country banks and the country banks on their side have been drawing upon New Vork for money. This depletes tile street in aost lamentable lashion, of course. There Is no doubt some truth in both these reasons given for the money stringency. This, of course, produces the molt dire distress. Operations t?ofh among the brokers and among our merchants are compara tively paralyzed by Uus stale of affairs, and the ouly question asked is WHERE IS THE REMEDY T The universal answer is that the remedy should come from the government. Mr. Kichardson, the new Secretary or the Treasury, in the short time liim been at the tot'iia IB Waaluu^iou Ua? sue ceeaed m becoming very unpopular with the mer cantile artd'Onane.al clauses. Hut it smmb that at lafet be is pieiarlng to make some movement towards relieving the monetary prepare. During the pant two days Mr. Richardson has received two biuthel baskets of telegraphic despatch** from prominent merchants and business men askug in the moot piteous manner for hem. It is, no doubt, this which hau caused him to make some MOVEMENT TOWARDS REI.1BVIN0 THR FREHW.'RK. His proposal to sell $8,000,000 of gold during the month is said t? be of no avail, because he with draws from circulation its equivalent in green backs, an 1 tbat makes matters worm- than ever. But yesterday aiternoon a despatch was received Irom Washington saying, in answer to a message asking for lmormation on this point, that Secre tary Richardson had been closeted with President Grant for some hours ia the aiternoon, ami tiiat the result of the coniabulatiou was that Secretary Richardson was abont to Issue immediately $10,000,000 in greenbacks to relieve the tinaucial necessity or the bonr. An interview with the As sistant Treasurer at this city, URN KRAI. HH.I.IIOCfiB, brought a statement iroin that gentleman that this statement of tbe is*ue of $10,000,000 was altogether a mistake, and tbat no such transaction had beeu as yet ordered, !l'he $10,000,000 spoken of would uot be a new issue of greenbacks from the Treasury in Washington, but simply an issue of a sum to that amount which has lain dormant in the Hub-Treas ury in this city since it was sent some tune since to pay oir the three per cent loan. This wan done without using the greenbacks spoken ?f, and tbe money bus not since been touched. The effect of any such action on Wall street would nndoubtedly be to relieve the money pressure, but gold would be sent up still higher than it has heen. In Wall street yesterday, inconsequence oi tbe excitement, there were ONLY TWO PAII.DRRS, of small men too trivial to demand any extended notice. Curious to say about one. however, is the fact that he had been suspended from the Stock Exchange for eighteen mont hs, and only got buck to Ills seat two days since, when this second blow came upon bim. It is considered a very un fortunate case. Outside of Wall street proper it is the general impression that the government ought to do some thing immediately to put a stop to the reckless gambling which is going on there at present. The very existence or a great many of our most prominent merchants depends, it is said, on the government breaklnir up tbe unprincipled specu lating, and all men outside oi these "rings " and " pools " are calling loudly upon tbe authorities in Washington to do what lies in their power to re lieve the community from the ravenous onslaughts of these financial sharks. AET MATTERS. Mmr, Hazard's l.<atcst Reception. At Mme. Hazard's reception on Monday evening, at 52 University placc, a large number of artists and literary characters were present. Music, reci

tations and tableans pleasantly varied the even ing. Miss Benzlner sang the "Slumber Song," and played the transcription by Liszt, irom "Itigo letto." Mine. Hazard represented Rome In the tableau or that name, and sang "L'Esperance," a composition of her own. Miss Perrettl Interpreted "Casta Diva" and a romance by Mme. Hazard, entitled, "I am Going to Die." Miss Proudioot rendered a scene from "Evadne" (the one which is supposed to take place in the Hall Of Statues) and one Irom "London As surance," aud, with the assistance of Mr. Pope, gave the quarrel scene from "The School for Scan dal." Mr. Pope read "Papa's Grave" and "The Fire Fiend." Mr. Carrozzi played a itoman march and Mr. Goffrif a violin solo. The rooms were crowded and the statuary gallery was the theme of general comment. Hie laBt two receptions will take place next Monday evening and next Monday evening week. 8ALUR vr AUCTIOH. ^DRIAN U. MULL, Kit, AUCTIONEER.
