THE GRABS OF GARFIELD.
Credit Mobilier-uack Pay Steal-re Golyer
From the New York Sun, May S.
James A. Garfield is now serv
ing his ninth consecutive term as
a member of the house ot repre
senatives. At the end of his term
he will succeed M. Thurman in
the Senate, as night succeeds day.
Gifted with fine natural parts,
possessed of some lite.rary ability,
given to study, popular in man
ners, and with a pleasing style of
speech few men have begun pub
ic life with such advantages. No
public man has sacrificed his op
portunities more unworthily.
Mr. Garfield entered the army
in 1861 as a colonel of volunteers,
and left it a major-general in
1863, with a record which, though
not shining, was quite creditable.
The Republicans of the Western
Reserve, who had sent Joshua R.
Giddings to.Congress until he be
came recognized as the father of
House, took up Garfield on his re
jurn from the war, at 32 years of
age, and have clung to him since
then, despite the most damning
roofs of his venality and jobbery
n legislation. Fidelity to the
arty in its fierce and intolerant
pirit seems, like the mantle of
harity, to -have covered a multi
ude of sins in his case.
Thrown into the midst of the
eckless legislation for wbhieb the
alamity of civil war furn-ished an
pportunity, he soon developed
be traits of character which have
ore recently made his name no
orious throughout the country.
e became the advocate and apol
gist of .the huge land grants and
u.bsidies *by whbich millions . of
cres of the public domain and
ens of millions of money were
oted to great corporations and
rings. That may be called the
eginning of the organized cor
uption which flourished during
rant's two terms. Garfield voted

company known as the Credit

French plan, had procured a char
ter from Pennsylvania, which
proved to be a failure in its hands.
Dris charter was purchased. A
ring of officers and directors of
the Union Pacific Road obtained
absolute control of its affairs. Thbey
ontracted with themselves under
another name for the construction
at exorbitant prices. They swin
dled the United States, the bond
bolders, and the stockhbolders for
the benefit of their own close cor-'
In 1867, Oakes Ames, James B.
Alley and others, known as the
'Boston party,' got possession of
the Union Pacific and the Credit
Mobilier. At that time Ames was
a member of Congress, and a man
ufacturer of reputed wealth. The
hands, and the dividends of the
Credit Mobilier had already at
tracted attention. Elibu B. Wash.
burno introduced a resolution in
the House which alarmed the
jobbers for their immense profits.
Colfax, then Speaker, and one of
the creatures of the ring, silenced
this movement for a time by par
Still the Credit Mobilier monop
olists were uneasy, and proposed
to buy off opposition. In January,
1868, Ames .vrote to McComb,
who afterwards started the in
vestigation from motives of re
venge. '1 have assigned, as far as
I have gone,' (certain shares to
different States;) the fifty per
cetn t. increase I want for distri
bution here and soon.' A few
days after be was still moie ur
gent. -He wrote again : 'In view
of Washburne's move here, 1 go
in for making our dividend in full.
I want that $14,000 increase of
the Credit Mobilier to sell here.
We want more friends in this
Congress.' As he himself said,
the object w as to put the stock
'where it would do the most good.'
The stock was then selling at $350
a share on a par value of $100.
It was issued in blocks of thirty,
twenty and ten shares to members
of Congress at par, and the so
called purchase was more than
extinguished by accrued divi
dends. It was a niee stock to

was more explicit and bolder than
that of any of-bis confederates in
the crime. An investigation was
ordered by the House soon after
the meeting of Congress ; the ex
amination of witnesses began on
December 12, 1872. At first Oakes
Ames declined to make any ex
posure ; but when the incrimina
ted members combined to swear
him down and to free themselves
by rank perjury, his blood wvarm
ed quickly and he determined to
let the truth be known, though in
the end there was much concealed.
Garfield submitted to the com
mittee a prepared statement on
January 14, 1873:
'1 never owned, received or
agreed to receive any stock of the
Credit Mobilier or of the Union
Pacific Railroad, -nor any divi
dends or profits arising from
either of tbem.'
Ames was recalled -January 23,
1872, and testified t~o the stock be
had issued to Gar-field, the divi
dends allowed him, and the
balance of money paid into his

was a 'loan.' lie submitted a
memorandum of the account in
detail. It came to-the knowledge
of tbe committee that Garfield had
visited Ames with the object of
inducing him to retract or modify
is testimony, and he was re-ex
amined on the 29th of January, as

A. No, sir, he did not claim that
Q. State all you- know in refer

knew very well that that was a
dividend. I made out a statement
and showed it to him at the ime.
In our conversation he admitted
it, said there was $2,400 due him
in stocks and bonds. He made a
little memorandum of $1,0C0 and
$1,400, and said ther-e was $1,000
of Union Pacific Railroad stock,
1,000 of Credit Mobilier stock,
and $400 of stock or bonds.
Q. When was that memoradum
made ? A. it was made in my
room. 1 cannot remember the
date. It was made since this in

second Congress, in which the Re

both houses, has gone into history
as memorable for scandalous leg- t

THE INFAMOUS SANBORN CONTRACTS, n
bZ which informers and spies were a
enabled to seize the books of mor- n
chants, and, by connivance to j+
blackmail them, and at the same ii
time to plunder the treasury of t
im-mense sums. That law was the r
result of a- corrupt combination v
between certain metbers of Con- t
gress; certain treasury officials t
and one San born, with one Jayne b
s the master workman. Sc,me e
idea of the maguitude of their op- ']
rations may be tormed from the r
fact tbat Sanborn drew from the v
treasury nearly $175,000 for three c
But for Garfield's.direct- comn- S
plicity, that infamy would never
ave disfigured the statute book.
The job was done in this way :
Sawyer, then carpet-bag senator t
from the South, afterward assist- a
(g secretary of the treasury, and f,
a confederate of Sanborn's ring, e
introduced an amendment to the 1:
legislative, executive and judicial .s
bill, authorizing the contracts to il
be made. It was a 'rider' and not y
in any way germane to the bill. g
But the Republicans then had the t
cronic habit of mounting their l1
rery. worst legislation as riders r
on the regular supply bills. The t
bill, tbus amended, was rep)orted a
to the House A pril 8, 1872, and v
the job was badly beaten.
Then came the fine hand ofi
trickery to play its pare. 3Mr. c
Garfield, instead of allowing the c
bill to go back to the Senate, d
where the action of the House s
might be concurred in, moved di
rectly -for a committee of confer- 3
ence, so as to let six men legislate a
coercively for three hundred, with t
himself as chairman on the House ~
side. Of course the job was put ,
back on the bill, and it passed 3
the Senate,wvhere it had origina- a
ted. But the House stood firm, e
and again, by a majority of one,
refused its assent on a call of the c
yeas and nays. Twi ice defeated, d
the bill was recommitted to the e
same conference, and when next r
reported the job had a long tail of f
verbiage, attached to deceive some li
and to operate as an excuse for e
oters whbose prejudices had mean- v
wile been conquered. Mr. Gar- 1
field then applied the previous j
question, and drove the bill p
through by ten majority. Addi- t
tion, division and silence won the t
THE SALARY GRAB. t
Gen. Garfield is mainly respon. c
sible for the passage of the salary
grab and back pay steal, the his- e
tory of which may be briefly re- c
cited. Gen. Butler reported a bill t
r.m t he judic-iary committee, C
ebruarv 7. 1873, to double the b
ay of the President and increase s
he salaries of the Vice President, t
Jabinct, Speaker, justices of the
upreme Court and members of a
oingress. This scheme had been
horoughly canvassed, and only fi
waited a favorable chance to be r
iunched. Three days later Gen. t
lutler moved to suspend the rules b
o as to-attacb this bill as a 'rider' o
o the miscellaneous appropriation b
ill then pending. It was beaten
y thirty-nine majority, wbich in
luded some of the strongest friends
f the proposed plunder, who
oted that way for effect. The
rst fire was thus drawn, and But- a
,r knew where to plant his bat- t<
The legislative appropriation bill t,
ime back to the House February 3<
I loaded with one hundred
rnendments. The natural course ti
-as to have had them printed, si
) that members might examine o
ie new items. But there was a is
awe to play, and Garfield took b
e lead. By virtue of his chair
ianship, he moved that the
[use resolve itself into com- tl
iittee of the whole on the special Crg
rder. Suspicion had been awak
ned, and adjournent had been
oted down previously. Dawes
as put in the chair, and the door
as opened for the grab. Garfield C(
ad assured members that the bill
'ould not be called up that night, H
ad the House was thin except on
2e stealing side, which was in
]e secret of Garfield's treachery. fa
. special vote was demanded on s
2e Butler amendment, now t
ioved as a 'rider' to the pending s
ill. It was defeated by fifty-two h
ajority, Butler himself voting g
gainst. it. But be immediately p
oved to reconsider and to ad- t
>:n. Nothing was now want- b
g to rivet the vote but to refuse t
o adjoura and then to clinch it by e
efusing to reconsider. The issue s
,as clear, but right in the face of
be large majority just recorded
be House adjourned by a still 0
~rger majorit.y, leaving the re
onsideration alive and kicking. -
bhe next day Butler's motion to 1
econsider was first in order-, and c
hen Farnsworth moved to lay it '
n the table and finish the busi

wered in the negative. f
-THE DE GoLYER FRAUD..
The next vote fixed the Con
ressional pay, and the bill, with
is graft, was sent to the Senate,
nd thence to a committee of con
~rence. On the last day of the
ession Garfield reported the bill
ack, doubling the President's
lary from the 4th of March, e
steaded of the end of the fiscal
ear, and raising the pay of Con-e
ress from $5,000 to $7,500, re
ractively for two years, with a t
>ng catalogue of augmented sala-b
ies for public officers. lie pre- b
ended that there was danger of
n extra session unless tue report b
Tas. adopted and told the House, t
tmay be an unwise expenditure t
2 some respects, but in most
ases the increase is proper and
ught to be made.' It was fin-ally a
riven through by a majority of
Garfield's connection with the
Vashington ring is also well
nown to the country. One of x
he most notorious of the corruplt 5,

as that awarded to DeGolyer & h
iClellan, of Chicago, for- laying ti
wood pavement. This contract c
overed 200,000 yards at $3.50 aT
ard. which the superintendent of
ontractors swore could be putT
ownat $1.50, every item of cost in
luded. So there was a cleand
rofit of $400,000 to be divided. To b
rther this job, which was pre
minary to others to follow, the
u of $97,000 was expended. It
ras given out in the spring of~
872. At that time Richard C.
arsons was marshal of the Su
reme Court, and had con verted i

intimate friend of Garfield, and

hairman of the appropriations.
