OAKES AMES AS A SPECULA
TOR. IMS CAREER IN C0NUKS.SS A DISGRACEFUL
EXHIBIT UIS ELECTION SECURED
solely lit money.
The special Boston correspondent of tho
Springfield 'Republican' give a carelul
review uf iho career ot Oakes Amen as a
congressman, In which tb following
Once in congrcis, and being a rich man,
bo had no trouble in securing n re-election,
and wliun thu wnr was over lu went into
ttiu Pncitlc Railroad speculation, along
with bis friend Alley, alto a mcpiber of
congress Htid a millionaire. How early
they began their questionable fltinticeermg
about li they know better than anybody,
except perhaps General Duller ; but it is
common report that when Duller wanted
to go to congress trom the Esssx district,
in 18615, he went to Alley and convinced
hint that hu knew enough about Alley's
Pucific Railroad operations to make it ad
vlsable lor Alley to withdraw as a con
gross candidate in Butter's favor, and soon
afurwmd, according to tbo same rumor,
General Duller nccepled a retainer from
the Union I'aciUc Company, and has kept
s.ill ever since. 1 do not vouch for the
truth of this, but thero is nothing in tho
ripulaiion of Ames, Alley or Butler to
make it improbable, and it is confidently
Now wo como to ar.othor branch of tho
Oakes Ames scandal, and one about which
there can bejio doubt. Having a large
merest in thu Pacific railroad und its col
lateral speculations, into which tho public
money was going by the million, and be
ing a member of congress from thu Pil
grim Fathers' district, Mr. Ames saw 111
to gut himself apointed on the house
committeo concerning his railroad, and
eventually became chairman or It. This
in It. elf, unless a man were as scrupu
lous and sensltivo on such points as
Washington, was a grosi scandal ; it il
like a man serving on a jury to try his
own case; and should have excluded Mr.
Ames from congress ever afterward.
Dut by this limu he had resolved to stay
in congress till his railroad job was fairly
through, and hn made it impossible to
nominate any other Republican candidate
in his district. At the last election there
wr.s a strong feeling against sending him
back ; so there was in 1668; and if he had
been a poor man, ho would not have got
tho nomination or the election in either
vear. Rut we had then reached tho mil
lionaire era in our politic, when a man
who is worth a million can got bimtelf
nominated to almost any office. And
.o Ames was elected, and is now in the
middle of his last term. Whether he hss
attempted to bribo members of congress
or not, his last five years in congress hare
been scandalous for his open and notorious
eelfilhnf-M in looking after his railroad in
terests, while nominally serving tho pub
lie. To be sure, other congressmen have
dono the same; to be sure, tho Pucific rail
road was, as Ames maintains, n great pub
lie work, liul It whs also a ureal private
job, and both Ames and Alley deceived
themselves, wltnout deceiving the public,
if t'ley suppose that their fellow-citizens
believe tlial they hnlpcu on lite railroad.
mainly as a grand national enterprise.
It win to in trn purely a mailer oi oust-
noss; they are both traders by nature, not
legislators, and they had no business to
mix up their private all airs wlin me pub
lic interests ns they did.
With the last phase of thi Ames scan-
dal made public by bis own letter, I have
troubled myself very iiuie, though it
teems to be too worst ol all. Having
lout? ago made up mv mind, on evidence
quite satisfactory, that Mr. Ames was unfit
to represent a .Massachusetts unmet in
congress, because ho was treating a public
trust as a source or revenue Tor bimseir
and friends, I did not care much about the
details. Dut I do not see how he is to es
cape from thu dilemma in which his letter
to McComb and his late pub
lic denial place him. Nn or
dinary or reasonable construction of
thu letters to McComb relieves him from
grave suspicions of bribery, cor does the
curious or evasive language of his public
denial. Besides, whenever thero is any
conflict between thu two, tho public will
bellevo that a letter written to a business
associate, in confidence, is more to be cred
ited than a letter to the public, written for
the express purpose ot defending the
writer from charges made agntnst him.
Tho Commonwealth, ' in its forcible-
feeble delenso of Mr. Ames, who seems to
have made that papnr his official orgun,
let out some damngim; tilings wituotit
helping its client at all. Il admits, for
nuance, wnul couiu not oh aemeu, mat
Ames' letters to McComb aro gnnuine,
and that they need an explanation, which,
in bis public denial, Mr. Ames has not
seen fit to give. The 'Commonwealth'
says, in behalf of Ames, that, in " placing"
stock where it would " protect " tho
Pacific railroad speculation, ho only
meant to place it " among financial
men of credit and character, indifferent
slates, whose reputation at home or else
where would give confluence to tho whole
enterprise." If the facts soon to bo dis
closed dn not make this statement seem
very redlculoiis as well as false, I shall bo
surprised. The same ingenuous editor,
who does not seem to understand tho force
of language, says that McComb's penciled
list oi congressmen "perverted " the wish
and meaning of Ames. If that is all he
can say, he will not help his client much.
