This letter was written since tho investiga
tion commenced. Ho wanted me to make
my testimony to coullrm it. Had lots of
conversation with l'allerson. The letter
read m follows :
AS'ajjUInoton. Jan. 4. 1872.
My Duau Sin: The facts In regard to
tbo Credit Mobilier to far us I hud any
connection with it, were as follows : You
came to uiu one day, knowing that a want
of means was a chronic dlteaso with me,
and said : "Patterson, it you would like, 1
can iut you have thirty shares of stock in
tbo Credit Jlublllor, which i tlilnk will bo
a prutftable investment, and will be u ood
thing lor you. .uy reply in tubslauuu
was that II you hail anything which 1
could inveU in out of which I could make
some money, 1 wou.d bo clad
to tnko it, but that I had
not the money ut that time, am!
must defer it till i could get it. Your re
ply wm thut you presumed I could let
you ha"o thu letter when it might be con
venient, unu you guaranteed It a perfectly
legitimate transaction. At that time you
did not and could not anticipate that you
ihoulU ever ask lor lurlher legislation
from cougrusi in any respect to tbo road;
vuii never did uxpuct it; when it was
forced ui-on you by the secretary nfter
tuis conversation with mo, you may bavo
liaU the impression that 1 should take
stock homo time, but fur (oino reason or
other, perhaps for want of funds, 1 never
took any stock, I never had any stock
tno company. 1 could not, as I did
not havii ii devidends. If pressed to
know if 1 purchased at any timo any
bonds or any stock of you, I can say 1
did utllio tune, they attempted to embarras
you, when tlio value of stock was de
pressed, and 1 paid you tho full market
value for it. 1 paid you seven thousand
lollars In money for tho stock and bonds.
The stock I put into tho hands of Morton
immeilintoly, to sell us soon as
it should co up reasonably on
uu tlio markot, which ho did. I saw Mor
ton on my way through. Ho said he had
never held any utoclc in tlio Credit .Mobil
ier for any one, and ho did not wish to
Imvo his nanio brought in tno examina
tion if it could bo avoided. I am going
west, nnd I will seo you on my return.
Dim't fail to r.orroct your original state
mont before It must not ba reported as
it now stands. A'ery truly, etc.,
Signed. J. W. I'atteiison.
Ames thon said: "I want to show to tho
enmmittoo I had boon asked why I held
thh stock nnd why I did not give it to
mombors themselves ; the reason wni that
tho Credit Mnbllior stock itsolf was not en

TUB COMMITTER ON ELECTION!)
This morning resumed thoCaldwoll inves
tigation. Sidney (Jlarko nsked to havo
tbo evidence of Judgo Asher before tho
Topckn investigation committee mado
public in tho present luquiry.
Judgo Crosier objected, on tho ground
that it was mcroly hearsay.
The question was laid over.
At the request of Judgo Crosier tbo
journal oftho Kansas legislature during
the vote for senator, was entered In evi
dence, Judgo Crosier also asked that Clarke's
testimony before tho Topekt committee bo
admitted in eviduncc.
Clark objected on the ground given at
thu last meeting.
AVhen questioned on tha subject, tho
committeo held that Crosier must Had to
Clark such portions ar. ho wished to use.
Judge Crosier asked Clark if ho testified
at Topeka that ho did not furnish n Hit of
names ol tho bribed members of tho leg
islature to tho editor of tho Lawrence.
Clark could not answer tho question.
O. O. Gago of Topeka was sworn, and
examined by Morton.
A itnees was at Topeka during the sen
atorial canvass; has no personal knowl
oJgo of the uso of monoy; did not hear
Caldwell say anything about it; did not
hear Levi or Ocorgo Smith, Tom Ander
son or Carney say anything of the sort;
heard outsiders talk of it; Clarke heard
Clapp, a member of tho legislature, say
that Levi Smith had olTered hlrn $1,'J00 to
vote for Caldwell; that was tho day be
fore tho first vote; said subsequently that
tho oiler was $1,200 if bo was sleeted,
and S00 if he was not. S lid that ho
noticed the money, but hated to tako it
and vote for Crawford, but on the final
ballot, voted for Caldwell. Saw him in
Smith's room, think tho subject was not
mentioned again at any lime ; don't know
that Clapp had any considerable amount
of monoy immediately nftor 'tho olection.
By Trumbull: "I want you to tell tho
committeo all you heard from any member
of thu legislature or nny man who was
electioneering for Caldwell."
Witness had told all ho know on that
point; know of no other inducement of
any kind by Clark; think Smith and
Caldwell occupied tha samo room ; Judge
Crosior was In Smith's room with frionds ;
did not know Smith : Col. Clapp asked
him whether ho should tako tbo money;
didn't adviso; if ho said anything about
It, it was to tell Clapp to do as bo thought
best; Clapp saw Smith in his private
Fn.nl: Drennior of AA'aukeena was
sworn and examined by Judge Crosier.
AVitnoss was at Topeka during tho can
vass ; fnvorod Carney, but when ha got to
Topeka Carney was olf the track and sup
ported Caldwell ; Don't know that thero
was a member of a committee of six work
ing in tho interest of Caldwell ; we other
gentlemen held frequent meetings to con
sult, but don't know that I heard any
mention of tho uso of monoy
at these meetings; think bo beard state
ments by Caldwell's friends that such and
sucii parties wanted monoy; don't think
heard Levi Smith, McDowell or Ander
son say such a man was to 3 high, and
would como down a little; never told
Smith that ho had put $2,000 in the hands
of the treasurer of his county to secure
two members from that county ; nover
said Caldwall was a littlo alow in provid
ing for two votes from that county;
that ho might lmvo got thorn for 5500 if
he had beon a littlo soonor ; did not bavo
$700 dollars to securo tho votes of that
county; never said h had; Carney re
quested him to go to Topoka ts work for
him; ho was there when Carnoy ar
rived and said he was off tho trick,
that ha did not leol liko running against
Caldwell ; didn't say ho had taken 515,000
for withdrawing; nevor beard of that ar
rnngoment; knew Caldwollby roputation;
went in for him; held a consultation with
Carnoy and Levi Smith ; thero was no ar
rangement by which ho was to bo paid,
except that Carnoy said hiscxpenses should
bo paid; Lovi Smith paid his expenses;
handed him $100, nnd asked if it would
cover his exponsos; said it would and a
groat deal more; oxpectcd Caldwell would
do him a favor if he asked him, but had
no such assurance; thoro was a great deal
of talk about bribory, ns tbore always ts ;
heard two members of tho legislature (Sol,
Mlllor nnd Mr. Moroy) say thoy wore of
fered money; Miller said Clark offered
to givahlmtho LawroncoTnbuno, mort
gaged for $14,000, with 15,000 II he
woilld vote for him ; Clark said he never
owned the Trlbuno , Morey said to wit
ness that Clark had offered money; never
hoard anything of offers of money by
Caldwoll or bn friends ;
To Judgo Crosier Carney said at first
that be did not want Caldwell elected;
from what Carney taid witness thought
Carnoy wanted to como back on tho track.
To Morton. Carney nevor said anything
about having money to glvo to Hill;
never at any tlmo Intimidated that he
wanted his expenses paid ; supposed Car
noy had told him that he had supported
To Clark ! AVas ft candidate for state
enato last fall and was defeated; Miller
did not support him.
Mr. Thomas was sworn and oxamlno.
To Morton : Took part In tho canvass,
J.M. Stoall tnembor of tbo legislaturo
authorizing him to nogoiiato for the salo
of his voto; wont to Levi Smith and Mc
Dowell, nnd asked If they wanted moro
votes; they said thoy did ; told them that
a membor who opposed Caldwoll would
vote for him for $t?03, or that be could
get all tho voles he wantod for $500 or
something of that kind; then went away and
continued to talk with McDowell; during
the conversation bo became satisfied that
Stcall bad been secured ; McDowell said
Steal! was their man ; ho complained that
ho had not voted as agreed; understood
distinctly that Stcall had sold his voto for
S'jOO; thought McDowell would not say
so; that was just bafore tho joint ballot;
went directly to Steall nnd said, " You
aro already sold, you havo got tho
money in your pocket; I can toll
you Just what it is; you did not vote as
you agreed to;" ha didn't deny this;
went to Smith and McDowell to sell
Steall's voto bocause it was a common re
port tlut they wero using money; know
nothing else that ho thought it his duty
To Judgo Crosior: Think tho conver
sation reluted was in tho hall at the
Taffte house ; it was in a crowd, but he did
not think anyono was listening;
saw McDowell first ; he said he would see
about tho proposition ; then wont away
and soon returned with Smith; was in
Caldwell s room, but had no conversation
about the purchase, or salo of the vote.
Judgo Crosior submlttod to tbo commit
tee the question whether bo was arrested
by Gen. Sheridan forstealing cotton.
Clark said be should want to ask if ho
was not discharged; If he did not bring
suit against Gen. Sheridan for fa! to arrest.
Thomas said ho wanted to say that ho
novor was arrested and never brought
suit against Gen. Sheridan.
Question and answer ruled out.
Thomas Miller was called.
Clark called for the roading of tho law
providing that no witness shall bo ques
tioned in court on account of testimony
given before the committee of congress.
His reason was that some witnesses who
had testified wero not aware of tho exis
tence of the law, Tho law was read.
Witness was then examined by Judge
Crosier: Neither Tom Anderson or any
one elso gave him $7,000 to influence tbo
votes of his delegation, and he novor said
tbat bo baa that amount.
Judgo Crosior read some of Anthony's
testimony upon this point, which Miller
said was not true ; was at Topeka during
tho canvass; know nothing of giving or
promising any rowards tor votes.
To Morton: AVhen be first went to To-
poka be was not pledged for either candi
date, but favored Carney, and the sena
tors wore instructed by their nominations
to oppose Clark, and four representatives
wero opposed to Clark; one was unpledged;
did not soo .Carney till he had
withdrawn ; didn't know of his arrange
ment with Caldwoll ; know nothing of
tho uso of money for votoj, and recollect
no conversation with Levi Smith or An
derson on Sunday or Monday boforo tho
election ; had a conversation with Cald
well; Carney asked him and other
friends to sea Caldwell and tell him that
ho wanted him to understand that ho was
to be eloctod by his (Carney,) frionds;
thr.t he wanted them remembered in the
distribution in offices, and Caldwoll said
they would bo remembered; don't know
how tho story of his bribery started; did
not tako packagos of money, as heretofore
testified and charged in tho Kansas
papers for the last two years; was not
called bofore the Topeka committeo;
don't know of anything he could toll
under his oath.
Chirk asked Snoddy why ho was not
called before this committoo.
Snoddy said ho did not want him.
Major 0. 1'. Hopkins was examined by
Judge Crosior : AVas nt Topeka during
the canvass; had no conversation with
Sneed in rolatlon to paying money for his
Judgo Crosier road Sneod's statement
that witness offered to bribe him.
AVitness denied ; Sneed osked him to
voto for Caldwell and pavo him no reasons
for voting for him, except tbat Clark
could not bo elc.tcd ; his exponses during
tho canvass wero never repaid him;
knew nothing of tho use of money.
