lt the sentiment of s majority of the directors,
and I have little doubt that that will be the action taken." Mr. Gould was next asked if he eared to say anything alwut the proceedings in the lMotrict Attorney's office and before the Grand Jury relative to the Gould-Sage trust, in thc matter of the Kansas Pacific bondholders. Mr. Gould's face become a study when this quest iou waa asked. He looked at lint as if tie could teU rn tale, if he chose, which would sliake somebody from bis bosMs up. Then his countenance took on an amused look. Then he thought a moment. 1 ben he said: " There was no reason fot pushing thst action. There was no reason for bringing it, bevond motives which I do not just at present ile-iVe to ciuiracteriie. The qiiev tion i? still tie-fore the court, and for that, reason it. is not decorous to the non rf, mir prn'icr, for other good aud stiiflicienl n*s*oa?N, that 1 should speak my mind as freely as I would wish, nor to the extent which 1 may in good time nnd season determine apsa. However, I see no impropriety in touching upon cciiuin msrked features of this matter, on which I could appeal lo any honorable busiucss man xtit.hotit fear of contradiction. ?? Thc Goiild-Snge trust w-.s mated to take care cf the Denver lSvtllc interest anti that sf Hie Kansas llicitlc. Tbo stock of tho Denver l'ticillc was v.itbotit value and its bonds without quota? tion. Thc consolidation with the Kansas Pacific wa. effected for tlie genentl good. I myself sm the heaviest bolder of Kansas Pacific bonds, and Mr. Sage is tho next heaviest holder. Would we nnii.ri<ilv do anything to injure thes* bonds? No. And we did not. The SA,OOO. OOO in bonds of which cots pis tnt was made were given a value, and tho stock was sent from c.r, to above par. We ranee>l|iHi half a million of the bonds in the con soliilntioii. Thrnuvhout the whole irarsH-otion ibo Gsrssid-Ssge trust did prodsclv that for which a trust is created. It acted lor ihe good of all Interests." THE INEVITABLE WOMAN IN IT. Mr. Gould paused a moment and then went on, as he shook his finger vigorously: "I am xvilling to submit the whole management of that trust, with all its details, to the presidents of the hading trust (ompjiijies of this city, and let them deter? mine if the fir*-niHftnart tm-t waa act handled upon Hie business lu-ihocls and principles upon wli,ch the leauiug UusUs of thu, eily BBB _on dud. .I!" " Well." Mr. (Inn ld, the railroad magnate, whs next asked cautiously. " what wa- tin- nioli'e un? derly nie, til S attiiek niton tiie (..,ould-Sage trust r"' Tic- answer which Afr.

His eyes flashed, bis lips bec arno set, he raised his hand timi lc t Hy tin se words: "Th" motives behind this assault arc?a news l>apcr. a cable company- and a woman.'" Tho words vere spt.ken clearly, incisively, nnd thc last worels caine out slowly and with a Starked -r-mpha-ais. Then Mr. Gould he OB BBI sib nt, while bis visitnr looked on in uma/.cment. Mr. Gould BBBB went on: " Tliat is all I have to say at present as to the causes instigating the sals, As to the action taken by tl.i District-Attorney, I need say little. 'Ihe present incumbent of that oilier, as well as bis predecessor, has acted in good fairh.

Colonel Freetcriclt D. Grant sent to the news Isnpera last evening a long statement In reply to General Badeati's recently published ? Address to the American People." Lu this he takes up, para? graph by paragraph, cvx-ry assertion in General lindi au's argument which he deems lt necessary to consider, and replies to lt in detail. Appended to this statement by Colonel Grant, which he declares is his final publication on the subject, are letters which passed between himself and General Badcau's counsel, aud uLso notes and letters to Mr. Alex? ander, Mr. Conkling and others who were con? sulted in the progress of the controversy after General Grunt's death. These letters throw no new- light, on any part of the matter, but present the complete history of thc efforts made to reach ti satisfactory settlement, which finally proved to lie unsuccessful. ATTACKING TBE EDITOR OF "Trill BCN." Colonel Grant starts out with s reference to thc publication in full of General l_i<lonn'n " Address" in " The New-York Sun," snd as.sails the Editor ol "Thc Sun" fiercely for tbe attitude of that I>aper toward the Grant family. The stat*ment then goes on as follows: In Ute fifth partrraph of the aldrc-s to the Aroetlcan people ls s<-t out that mental auiViirt, data-tl February 7, isa,.-,, k;ia aasai c. ts.

Colonel Grant pixes the following detailed account nf I lie circum? stances under which General Laelcau's teller lo Gen? eral Grant, ashing for a now arrangement betxvecn Diem as to compensation, was given to the General, and Its effect on General Grant. This part of Colonel Grnnt's statement ls as follows: C. 11 ia! Dadfju loaded his civil letter of May 2d to General Crant, on thc day of tu date, tn Mrs. Grant's presence, but not In mine, and immediately left the house, returning on the Ith. General Grant read lt, and when I came In was airltatel and trembling. He unlocked the drawer of a bureau, where he had placed lt, and uklng the letter out handed lt Ut rue, saying: ? Read this and tell me what you think of lt." I did read lt and said that I thought lt despicable. My father them, without ans- suggestions from ms, began to write the answer with his own hand, being so wak Out he emil 1 not write more than 1 few lines without stopping. He answered one point after another and gate me the sheets of his manuscript, and wben he Iud finished I topted their) and read the ttgf tv him, he directing e. Lan j; ts au J on et? ti ons.

COLONEL GRANT WAS ONLY AN AMANt'FNSIS. The foregoing aBttaaaesI is a sufficient answer to the Implication in the eleventh paragraph of the ? addrosa" that the reply of Gen ral Grant, descending, as Bad<Mu says it does, to deulls of falsehood and pettiness of which the hero of Appomattox was Incapable, was merely signed by ray father, but wis In fact written hy nie. There ls this inueh truth, and no more, In thia liupllcallun, ilia', (he copy given to General Badeau was tn >uy handwriting for Un nason thal my father was then physically unable to copy his otu per_ell memoranda and thai l waa acting as hts fiti_irii "H.-.S.

MB, CON-LING'S RELATION TO THK CASE. At this point, too, lt ls proper to notice the allegation In tho twentieth paragraph, that Mr. Conkling withdrew from the suit after the refusal of further extension of ttme to answer. This ls an utterly wanton misstatement. Intended to create the lmpi-e_c_on-.ru! that lmp-saswton has been widely circulated tn tbe pr**e-that Senator Crinkling " withdrew from Ute case" because dtt_iU.lled wlUi tlio stand taken by General Grant's family. This la false. Mr. (Vikllng was never In the case merely as counsel. He was ona of my father's dearest ?nd most valued friends, and for that reason a* well as for hts ihllltlea the one Iswyor of ill other* to whom my mother would naturally resort for friendly advice tn tim* of need. He co! ne li). 1 with Mt. Ale-cairder In the opinion, which I confess wss not mine, that the better way to dis? posal of Dita nj lier would bo to give nadean money, as that seemed to ba what he waa stier, providing ba would make a statement dlsclalmlnc all Joint authorship, and ho favored a settlement for $7,500, and afterward of his own sccord added *.Vk> to tha amount, to which roy mother ssvsented. He pei ml ts me to say thal I said to him then what the correspondence discloses, that the Question of the amount to be paid to Badeau was no factor In this dlscua sion, the one consideration never to be lost sight of bel my the vindication of my father from even the insinuation thst hts Is-M.k was not hi" own. When lt became evident, however, that nothing except litigation snd publicity through the press would satisfy the author of thu ?? addi-csa," Mr. Conkling did not deellne to act as ct unasl fur my mother, but considered that In view of the rica/ollatious which had taken place during Ibe time when lt was supi-osed 'hat litigation might be pre. teated, lt v-oull ht better that the attorney of record shiuild not he In any way connected with his nft'ce, and, with that sense of propriety which has alway* distin? guished him, said to me that he thoneht that neither he nor Mr. l'unlngton, both of whom have stood in such close Intimate relations with the entire family of my fail,er as necessarily to view al! malters In which they were sf fected with ? strong blas of per-tonal friendship, should conduct this litigation; bul that lt should be _______el to Mr. Seward, an besoted friend of my father and a gen? tleman of conspicuously cuni and Judicial mind, whose re? lations with tither members of the family, although cor? dial, h.il nm hess of suih lung standing and extreme In? timacy as to mako him share necessarily their views where tho same were affected hy strong personal feelings. And my mother, reeotmlrfng Ihe wisdom of Mr. Conk llnc's suggestion, and remembering with gratitude the freat servlee rendered by Mr. r??'tar1 to my father at the time of the Grant A Ward fsllure. services st' mud.sH> srid quietly rendered that his iiiim was scarcely ioeit tioned lu connicUon willi Diem before Die public, ac? cepted y.iih the gnuiest plca-ure Mr. Conkling'* opinion ond solicited Mr. Seward as attorney and senior eiun-<I, to a -sui, e the condct of tho case. And lt ls only Just to that gentleman to say that he has In Uils as tu every other Instance, depifcticd thc venttlaDon In ihe tetra. paper, of matters pending before the courts.
