Tbe True History of the DawuMi c
the Tweed Uinu.
Republican newspapers liaye
sought to create tho impression that
Uov. Tiluen did not attack tno xam
many Rins tintil ill doom was al
ready apparent; that ho waited long
enough to make sure tnat be was not
attacking a power that might yet de
stroy him. and thon claimed' tho
whole credit of its overthrow. The
truth is exactly the revcrso of this.
It can and will bo shown that . Gov.
Tildon attacked tho Tweed Ring
while it had control" of nil depart
ments'of tho State and City govcru
ments, .owned . both parties, in tho
Legislature, and had on ignorant or
willing tool in 1usAcu) lork Jidws,
which years afterward published iacts
which canio into its possession with
regard to the Ring, and has sinco at
tempted to seize the credit ot tho de
struction of that gigantio conspiracy.
Its claimU falso and impudent. Tho
overthrow of Tweed ana the Tweed
Ring is duo to Samuel J. Til Jen and
in tho first place, it is to bo said
that at no time has Gov. Tildcn ever
preferred a claim to recognition as
tho man who had acheived this result.
In all tho testimonials aud exhibitions
of popular rejoicing which followed
this work ho has always stood in the
background, and urged that tho chief
recognition bo bestowed upon others,
Democrats as well as Republicans,
who had aided his labors, and . who
had shown like himself, an unselfish
determination to break up this corrupt
organization, no matter what party or
what individuals might bo hurt.
Tho Tweed Ring originated in the
Board of Supervisors created in 1857
by a Republican Legislature and
Governor, but it did not reach its full
organization and growth until 18G9,
when Oakey Hall became Mayor.
Tie New York Times published two
years aud a halt later accounts largely
fraudulent amounting to 111,000,000,
of which one-third were passed in
1809. nearly two-thirds in 1870, and
tho remainder in 1871. In 18G9 the
open attacks of Mr. Tilden upon the
King and its return blows at him be
can, Ions before TlieKew York Times
ceased to bo its ally, tor at that time
many seemingly respectable papers
and men succumbed to its corrupt
and dreaded iaflueuco. So far from
Mr. Tilden's being hand and glove
with these men, as Republican news
papers charge, the hostility between
them began as tho Ring began to
form. Mr . Tilden opposed one of
their schemes of plunder as early as
18G3, years before he was made Chair
man of the State Committee, and
they becamo bitterly hostile to him
in consequence. IJuring the ruio ci
the Ring, Mr. Tilden usually appear
ed in State Convention as a delegate
from his native county, Columbia, bo
cause the Ring would not allow him
to go from New York City.
Mr. Tilden has himself stated why
ho took tho positiou of Chairman of
the Istate Committee : !
I desired to save from degradation the groat
party whose principles nod traditions were
mine by ionuntnnce ana conviction ) nou io
make it an instrument of a roaction .in the
community wbich could alone save free gov-
ernuiout. Holding wearily the end of a rope,
because I feared where it might go if I drop
ped it, I kept tbe State orgauization in ab
solute independence. I never took a favor
of aoy sort from tnesa men, or irom any man
I distrusted. I bad not much power in tbe
Legislature on questions which interested
private cupidity; but in the State Conven
tion, where-the best ineo in society and bus
inct'3 would go, because it was but for a day
or two, those with whom I aclod generally
bad tbe majority.
At this period neither Mr. Tilden
nor the general public could sustain
any definite charges against members
of tho Tweed Rinir. lie had no faith
in them, and they feared him. They
determined to get rid ot him as cnair
man of the State Committee, and get
the organization into their hands.
They made their attempt in the State
Convention of loO'J; air. iiuen longut
them and carried seven eitrhts of the
Convention to their one. Before this
he had denounced in the Courts the
orders of the infamous Jud e Barnard
in certain cases in which 1 weed was
interested, Tweed's son being also
Uarnard's receiver, in the terms they
deserved, and had begun tho move
ment for judicial reform wbich ended
in the impeachment or lorcecl resigna
tion of Tweed's worst judges.
Tha elections of 18G'j cave the
Democrats the lawmaking power for
the hrst time in il years. 1 ho l weed
Ring would rather have had a Repub
lican Legislature. Tho latter they
could always corrupt, while the con
trol of a Democratic Jegiblature
miirht be taken out of their hands
through the party machinery. Th
lnlamous I weed Charter lor tne city
of New York finally made its anwar-
ence in the Legislature of 1870 and its
progress was raniJ. It was well nn
derstood that it would pass because
it wan known tli.it a vtrv lanre sum
of money would be expended to carry
it. It w said that tl,V(W,0(H) was
t-ili.n In All.nnr In rarrv thu (tfi.irtrr.
much of which wad doubtless pocket
t-a ky the peoplo who handled the
money. Notwithstanding tho cer
tainty of its passage, Mi. I'lUlui! went
to Albany this was in tho Spring of
1870 and denounced it in a fearless
speech beforo Tweed, who was him
self chairman of tho Senate Commit
tee on Citiel which was to pass upon
a charter that would put self govern
ment in New York City "in abeyance
for .from four to eight years " creat
ing a "Mayor without any executive
pover, a Legislature without any leg
islative power, and elections without
any power in tho peoplo to affect tho
Government for that period." This
speech enraged Tweed who vowed
that -ho would depose Tilden from tho
State Committee, but was warned by
prominent politicians not to attempt
it, and thought better of it. The
charter passed with tho voto of every
Republican Seuaior except one, and
received a largo Republican majority
in tho Assembly. Judge Noah Davis,
a leading Republican judge, was tho
authority for tho statement, subse
quently, that six ot theso Republican
Senators the leaders received $10,
000 each for tho charter, $5,000 each
for similar bills that year, and $5,000
for like servioes the following year.
IkcAae l ork Junes pronounced tho
passage of this infamous bill against
which Horaco Greelov, Jackson U.
Suhultz, William M. Evarts, and oth
er Republicans, protested, with Mr.
Tilden, and which put the City of
New lork absolutely at tho mercy ot
tho most powerful and most unscrrtp-
ulons of Kings a "most important
and salutary" work, and two days
after said of another that "Senator
Tweed was (is) in a fair way to dis
tinguish himself at) a reformer," and
added: "Wo trust that Senator
Tweed will manifest tho same energy
m tho advocacy of this last reform
which marked his action in regard to
the charter." The following day,
April 9, 1870, Mayor Hall appoiuted
Tweed, Sweeny and Fields to the
most important offices under this
charter, and tho Times said that the
appointments "are far above tho aver
age in point of personal fitness, and
will bo satisfactory." Within less
than a month the great robbery of
the Tammany Ring was committed
under this charter, passed over Mr,
Ion's opposition aided by Republi
votes, and approved by Republi
can papers like l lie Jew l ork J. uncs.
Tho Board of Special Audit, consist-
ins of Hall, lweed and Uoniiolly,
leld the only meeting it ever held,
and audited bills amounting to $6,312-
000, of which about 90 per cent, was
tiejl. Tins is only a part ot the
money stolen under this charter op
posed by Mr. Tilden and favored by
The Tunes, t rom April to Decem
ber, 1870, the aggregate of fraudulent
bills was $12,250,000, and 1872
83,400,000. Of this $24,000,000 was
sheer plunder. The Ring bad now
gained what seemed to bo absolute
control, aud every ono hastened to
mako relations with it. Even Sena
tor Conkling and Geo. Win. Curtis,
addressing tho Republican Conven
tion, had nothing to say against it.
They could not in tho face ot the ac
tion of their party associates. JHr.
Tilden stood alone.
The riim had now absoluto control
of all departments, all courts below
the Court of Appeals, and tho State
Government. Mr. Tilden saw that
its power must be brokon by the same
means by which it was obtained its
hold on the Legislature must be de
stroyed. The ring feared his attacks,
and distinctly proposed to allow Mr.
Tilden to name all the delegates from
New York to tho State Convention of
1871, so as to have no contest. He
refused, and made tho obiootive point
of tho campaign of 1871 the capture of
tho New York City delegation in tho
Legislature. He sought tin aid ot dis
tincruished democrats like Charles O''
Conor, Horatio Seymour, Francis Ker-
nan and Oswald Ottendorler. wiin
Mr. O'Conor was arranged tho plan
for the suits against tho ring, which
was afterward carried out. 1 his was
all done before the Committee of
Seventy, the association of citizens,
was formed. Early in beptember nr.
Tilden issued a letter to 2G,000 Dem
ocrats throughout the State, calling
on them to take a koifo and cut the
cancer out by the roots. Comptroller
Connolly was now alarmed, and was
anxious to betray bis associates of the
ring if he could receive immunity.
Mr. Tilden by study of the law, found
that tho Comptroller could appoint a
deputy and confer upon him for a def
inite ueriod all his powers : Andrew
II. Green. Mr. Tilden's life-long friend,
who has since been Comptroller of
New York, was made Counolly dep
uty, and thug the key of the whole po
sition passed into the bauds of the re
formers. The Controller could refuse
to pass Jtills, and could make public
all expenditures. By this master
gtroke of Mr. Tildeifs, not only was
an end put to tbe thefts of the ring,
but the means was provided lor the
collection of the proofs upon which
Tweed and others were afterwards
tried. The ring now triod to force
Connolly to resign, so that tic yovr-
ers of tho deputy might coaso, and
then assumed to remove bim. Mr.
Tilden oheckod this last attempt with
8 legal opinion which ho obtained from
m 1 - i-V.r-l ft. n. .
vuuncB v vonor. air. nidon was
watching the ring unceasingly, and
carriage stood at his door night ami
day, ready to take him to an honest
and fearless judge who would vacate
fraudulent orders by ring judges as
fast as they wero grauted. lu the
Stato Convention that month Mr. Til
den did not have tho success he had
hopod for, but ho boldly annouuood
that ho should .opposo tho Tammany
nomination for tho Legislature Irom
New York City. Ho did not relax
his efforts lor a momoiit. Ho worked
hard during tho wholo of this cam
paign, made narocinont with Charles
O'Conor and William M. Evarts that
they should be candidatos for tho Leg
islature to continue tho fight thoro,
and when they abandoned tho inten
tion, went alono. '
It now onlv remained to obtain hi-
dicial proofs of the frauds. These Mr.
Tildon got by a laborious examina
tion ot tho books of tho Broadway
Bunk, which occupied ten days, and
absorbed all tho energies of himself
and fivo assistants. Mr, Tilden him
self analyzed tho results aud discover
ed from a skillful aud intelligcut study,
of tho great mass of figures, that but
one-third ot tho amount of tho fraud
ulent bills had readied tho persons in
whoso names tlfoy had bocu made out,
and that two-thirds had been divided
among the piblio oflicors aud others
composing tlto ring. Mr. Tildon also
traced soino of thesodividonds direct
ly into tho hands ot some of the
tlrevos. This examination furnished
judicial proof, and was tho only ono
which did so. On this ovidcuoe and
on Mr. Tilden's affidavits the action
brought by Mr. O'Conor, aoting for
tho Attorney-General of the State,
was founded. The Now York limes
said, October 28, 1871, in roforring to
the Broadway Bank investigation :
"Here we havo, thanks to tho labors
ot Mr. Samuel J. lildon, full and com
plete evidence that Wm. M. Tweed
differs from a common thief oply in
having stolon tons ot thousands instead
of tens of dollars. Tho Times had now
published Its figures, and was fiorcoly
assailiug tho ring whose cbartor it had
tho year before approved. Somo no
tion of tho skill with which these
thefts wore committed, and the difli-
culty of detection, may bo had when
it is learned that awoeny s sliaro, aud
the dovious ways by which it reachod
him were only discovered aftor an in
vestigation ot six months, mado ty an
expert undor Mr. Tilden's direction.
At the rrent reform meeting in
Cooper Institute during this campaign
Mr. Tilden, although Chairman ot the
Democratio State Coinmilteo, advised
a union of all elomonta nguinst tho
ring, without reference to State or na
tional politics. For this ho was bit
terly duuounood, but the result was
that nearly 40.U00 Democratio votes
were cast tor tho reform ticket, and
under the weight of them tho ring
After tho election ho continued his
investigations until tho opening of tho
Legislature, ot which he had been al
most unanimously elcctod a member,
and st every interval afterward which
he coud command. 1M early every ju
dicial proof obtainod in tho suits
against the ring was derived Irom
theso investigations mado personally
by Mr. 1 ildun.
In tho Legislature Mr. Tilderi do
voted himself to the work of driving
Tammany judges from the bench. The
infamous Barnard was impeached and
convicted, and the no loss infamous
Cardozo was compelled to resign.
Whit was said before of Mr. Tilden's
unwillingness to claim tho credit of
his work can be illustrated here
When the Bar Association ot New
York sent their memorial to Mr. Til
den, then in tho Legislature, as the
mjst prominent representative of the
movement for judicial reform, ho sent
it back, suggesting that it be put into
tho hands ot a prommeut Kepubucau
becauso tho work might prosper bet
ter in his hands.
Mr. Tilden had thus far, devoted
sixteen months of unremitting and ex
hausting labor to this task, giviiia up
all his immense private praclico and
suffering a loss of income, together
with the expenditures involved, equal
to what would be a handsome endow
ment of a public charity.
Even when the Tweed ring had pass
ed into the hand i of the courts, Mr.
Tilden did cot relax his efforts to aid
the prosecution, and when he became
Governor his first work was to carry
through the Legislature bills facilitat
ing the prosecution of unfaithful pub
lic officers, under which successful
suits were brought against the ring.
Ia one action against Tweed, brought
under these laws, 8000,000 was recov
ered. This plain statement of facts,
which cannot be disputed, and which
could be fortified by countless details
if necessary, shows :
1. That Mr. Tildon began the at
tack on tho Tweed ring.
2. That he began the attack on the
ring wbcu it was in the height of its
power, and was In complete control,
of every branch of the city and State
3. That while enjoying one of the'
largest and most legal practioes in tho'
country, he gave op sixteen months'
of his timo to the work of destroying
this powerful combination.
4. That he finally succeeded in turn
ing 40,000 Democratio voters agaicrft'
it and overthrow it.
5. Tlmthis porsonal investigations'
furnishodj almost every item of legal
proot on which the suits against
'p i ...1 f.j ... . "
xwuuu uiiu ins vuuiuuuraics were
founded, and that ho arranged the ma
chinery by which thoso . suits wore'
brought. ' . ..,(.
G. That he drove Tammany judges
from the bench, and perlected legis
lation by which official plunderers
might bo puuishod.
