OUSHING'S BIG MISTAKE.
Why the Great Lawyers Lost the Chief
Inside History of a Hemorablo Senatorial
The inside history of the execu
tive sessions of the senate vrhich
made the confirmation of Morrison
R. "Waite possible by the rejection
of the two former nominees', Lan
daulet "Williams and Caleb Cush
ing, has never been told. It was
given to mo to-night by the pri
vate secrotary and confidential
friend of one of tho senators who
took part in the confirmation.
"When chief justice Chase died
president Grant first tendered tho
nomination to Roscoe Conkling,
who was then 41 years of age.
Conkling declined to accept tho
position, and when asked why, re
plied that he preferred "some other
way of being buried than by tak
ing a seat upon tho supreme
bench." Grant then sent in the
nomination of his attornc3--gen-eral,
George II. "Williams, of Ore
gon, who had been chief justice of
Oregon territory, and who was
noted as a lawyer, but who, from
his extravagant equipage which he
drove about "Washington at tho
expense of the government, was
dubbed "Landaulet" "Williams.
"Williams was rejooted and the
secret of his rejection lay in the
extraordinary beauty of his wife.
Mrs. Attorney General "Williams
was by all odds tho greatest beauty
amonjj the "Washington ladies of
that day. Her only rival was Mme.
Catacazy, the wife of the Russian
minister, who is considered one of
the most beautiful women in the
world. Mrs. "Williams was tail,
well formed and graceful. Sin;
had a beautiful, rosy face, dark
brown hair and blue eyes. She
was an accomplished conversation
alist and her social powers were
such that she was envied and
hated by the wives of many of the
senators. She had had somewhat
of the same record as tho wife of
Andrew Jackson, in that her first
husband was a brute, and in tint
her divorce was secured by the
aid of Williams, who afterwards
married her. The wives of the
senators could not think of the so
cial reign of Mrs. Williams heitiir
perpetuated, as it would be if t -.
husband became chief just.-.' cl
the United States for life. T .
quietly talked the matter over to
gether, and it was their influence
with their husbands that brought
about the adverse vote which .-e
cured Williams' rejection.
President Grant became very
angrj at the action of the senate,
and he asked a number of the sena
tors whom he knew had voted
against Williams as to their reasons.
They replied that Williams was not
a great enough lawyer. Grantsaid
nothing, but he astonished the Re
publican members of the senate
one day by sending in the name
of Caleb Cushing as chief justice
of the United States. This was
just after the passage of the con
stitutional amendments relating to
negro suffrage and tlie radical re
publican members of the senate
considered it very important that
a chief justice should be appointed
who would be in accord with the
most pronounced views of tho Re
publican part as to these. They
were opposed to the selection of
an' man whose party fidelity was
questionable, and they were aston
ished at tho presentation ol tho
name of Caleb Cushing. Cusliing
had been a whig member of con
gress in 1S41, and he had, as Par
son Brownlow said at this time,
gone over to Tyler and been paid
for doing so by being made com
missioner to China, and he negoti
ated, I think, the first treaty bo
tween that country and the United
States. Ho had been in president
Pierce's cabinet as attorney general
when Jeff. Davis was secretary of
war, and he had introduced Will
iam L. Yancy, of Alabama, at a
meeting at Boston, and had in
dorsed a state rights speech which
Yancey had made there in 18G0.
On this ground many of tho Re
publicans deemed his nomination
nnd appointment inadvisable, and
noono supposed he would be con
firmed. Some of the senators re
monstrated with Grant. He re
plied that ho had not known of
Cusbing's record, that he had of
fered them a man sound politically
in Williams, but that he was not a
good enough lawyer for them, but
now he had given them a good law-
er, and they were not satisfied
with him as a politican.
Charles Sumner was not thought
to bo in favor of Caleb Cushing,
and the two had been enemies,
and no one thought Conkling
would support him. When the
matter came up in tho cauous of
the Republicans, senator Sumner
made an ardent speech in his fa
vor, and Ben Butler assured
tho senators that Cushing was now
a strong Republican, and that ho
was in accord with the amendments.
Parson Brownlow said he could not
vote for Cushing, and acoused him
of being a political prostitute. Ho
had been approached by a private
secretary of ono of tho other sena
tors and had been assured that
Cushing was a strong Republican.
Ho had replied that he had no
doubt that ho would promise to be
a Republican in tho futuro to get
tho position, but as for him (Brown
low) ho would a thousand times
rather vote to confirm as chief jus
tice such Democrats as Allan G.
Thurman, of Ohio, or Bayard, of
Delaware, whom lie regarded as
honest men. Nevertheless, after
Boutwell, Conkling and Summer,
had vouched for Cushing's future,
the senate felt inclined to confirm
him, and ho would have been but
for senator Sargent, of California,
who rose just about as tho vote
was to bo taken and threw a bomb
shell into tho senate in the shape
of a letter taken from tho archives
of Riohmond. It was a copy of a
letter taken from tho papers which
Pickett, who had been connected
with tho state department at Rich
mond, had carried off and sold to
the United States government for
SSO.COO. It was a letter from
Caleb Cushing. dated Washington,
1SG1, and it was addre?ed to Jeff
erson Davis, president of the Con
federate States of America. It
was a letter of introdiu'itnn, and ii
read somewhat as follews:
Wasiiin-otox.ISGI. Hon. Jeff
erson Davis, president of the Con
federate States of America My
Di:.r. Sir.: This will introlu o
to you Mr. Archibald Roone, who
has long been a clerk in the df
partment of justice at Washington,
and who is anxious to link his for
tunes with yours. He has recent
ly patented a valuable gun, which
1 have no doubt you can use to
advantage, and I commend him to
you. Cai.i:i: Cl'.siiinc.
After tho reading of this letter, u
silonee fell upon the caucus, which
was only broken at the instance of
Parson Brownlow, who, then ili :inl
unable to talk, got senator Lewis to
make a motion for him, ami this
motion was: "That this caucus of
Republican senators now adjourn,
and that the senate be convened
in open session that it may remove
the political disabilities of Caleb
Cushing, of Massachusetts. That's
all." There was a laugh at this
motion and the caucus adjourned.
Grant, on hearing of tho action,
made no further movement in favor
of Cushing, and when Waite's
name wav proposed somo timo lat
ti r, ho received every vote cast
and was unanimously confirmed.
