Bastus B. Hansom was an obscure man in
this city until somo friends on tho street got
him the Beceivership of the Open Board of
Stock Broken in 1882. The affairs of this
unf ortunato concern were so badly compli
cated that tho law firm of Bansom & Knovals
was called in to straighten matters out.
There was somo difficulty between tho Build
ing Association of the Board and the Board
itself. When Bansom took hold of affairs
about 820.000 was turned ovor to him from
tho Building Association, and for three yean
ho handled an annual rental of $13,000 from
the building. The settlement of affairs
dragged along until 1885, when it was consid
ered advisable to change the receiver. Ban
som withdrew and J. E. O. Sherwood was
substituted for him.
mot much yon the buokibs.
Of tho thousands of dollars that had passed
through Bansom's hands as receiver, ho
turnod over to his successor something like
$126. All the rest had been swallowed up in
counsel fees and "current expensos." Tho
brokers raised a howl about it and openly
aoousod Bansom of duplicity and collusion
with an auctioneer to sell the building of the
Board, No. 42 Broad street, on his
own responsibility and make conditions
whioh would be of advantage only to
himself. Particular objections were raised
to tho enormous sums or money Bansom had
paid out in counsel foes to Sidney S. Harris,
a warm friend of his. A batch of law
suits sprang out of tho new oomplications,
and one of the referees selected in adjudicat
ing them was Henry S. Howland, now candi
date for Supremo Court Judge on tho Bepub
COUNT! DEUOOBATB BEJIOTED UI1I.
Nowspaper notoriety obtained through those
operations brought Bansom's name promi
nently before the publio. About that timo
some powerful though not apparent influences
were pressing him upon tho County Demo,
crats as nominee for the Superior Court
bench to Bucceed Judge Sedgwick. The in.
dignant mombers of the Open Board of
Broken made a strong protest and the
County Democrats, after looking into Ban
som's record, refused to take him up, Then
his friends made an assault on Tammany and
carried their point. Bastus S. Bansom was
8ut up as Tammany nomineo for Judge of
le Superior Court.
Every effort was made to get the Republi
cans to indorse Bansom's nomination. It was
particularly urcod that Bansom had worked
tooth and nail for tho Bepublican National
ticket in 1880, and that in 1884 he kept dis
creetly quiet. Singularly enough. "Johnny "
O'Brien and other powerful allies of Jay
Gould were most conspicuous in urging this
indorsement on the Bepublican organization.
But it was refused. The Republicans stood
by Judge Sedgwick.
Then Gould and his friends begun tactics
which at once exposed their hands. They
openly canvassed for Ransom on Wall street
and in the business exchanges. The angry
members of tho Open Board of Brokers
opposed them at every stop. Cyrus W.
Field joined hands with Gould in pushing
Ransom. Brokers were personally solioited
to vote for him and brokers' clerks
were given to understand that it was for their
interest to give tho Tammany candidate
their cordial support, even if thoy voted for
every other man on tho Republican ticket.
Both Gould and Field personally peddled
Ransom tickets. Elevated road employees
wero forcibly informed that RanBom was a
man for them to consider. The result of all
this effort cut down Judge Sedgwiok's vote
enormously, but ho triumphed, and Rastus
S. Ransom retired for a while from pubho
WHT OOULD WANTED A JTJDOZ.
Rastus S. Ransom was a useful man to Jay
Gould. As a Judge of the Superior Court
his usefulness would have been boundless.
At tho time ho was a candidate there wero
107 cases on tho Superior Court calendar in
which Gould and Field hod an in
terest. They consisted mainly of
actions for damages against the ele
vated railroads, and tho claims aggregated
millions of dollars. They had beon post
ponod again and again until further delay
was almost impossible. Trial was inevitable,
and Gould wanted a judge of his ohoico on
tho bench. He solectcd ltastus S. Ransom,
who had rendered him Bignal service as conn,
sol for the receivers of the Manhattan Ele
vated Railroad in tho notorious proceedings
before Judge Westbrook.
This, briefly, is Rastus S. Ransom's career
in New York city. Aro the men who were
behind him in 1885 bohind him now ?

"I would rather vote for Democrats on a

to-day, "than to vote for Republicans on a

George H. Forster and Rastus S. Ransom,
who were stalwart Republicans up to a few
years ago. Now thoy call themselves Demo

George H. Forster was for yean ono of tho
leaders of tho Republican party in Wostches.

county as a bitter and partisan Republican.
Ho represented the Westchester-Rockland
District in tho Senate of 1880-1881 and
nlvnys votod with his party on party
measures. Ho opposed all just
and equitable exoise laws, and on political
questions never failed to tako part in the de

a bitter partisan. He was converted a few
years ago and was admitted into Tammany
