In Breaking Rings!
THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE
DOWNFALL OF THE TWEED
AHD CANAL RIN6S!
THE TWEED RING.
Republican newspapers have sought to
create the impression that Gov. Tilden did
not attack the Tammany ring until its
doom was already apparent; that he
waited long enough to make sure that he
was not attacking a power that might yet
destroy him, and then claimed the whole
creditof its overthrow. The truth is
exactly the reverse of this.' It can and
will be shown that Gov. Tilden attacked
the Tweed Ring while it had control of all
departments of the State and City govern
ments, owned both parties in the Legisla
ture, and had a willing or ignorant tool in
The Nno York lime, which years after
wards published facts which came into its
possession with regard to the ring, and lias
since attemptod to seize the credit of the
destruction of that gigantic conspiracy.
Its claim is false and impudent. The
overthrow of Tweed and the Tweed Ring
is due to SamuelJ. Tilden and Charles
O'Conor.,
In the first place, it is to be said that at
no time has Gov. Tilden ever preferred a
claim to recognition as the man who had
achieved this result. In all the testi
monials and exhibitions of popular rejoicing
which followed this work, he has always
stoocl in the background, and urged that
the chief recognition be bestowed upon
others, Democrats as well as Republicans,
who had aided his labors, and who had
shown, like himself, an unselfish determi
nation to break up this corrupt organiza
tion, no matter what party or what indi
viduals might be hurt.
The Tweed ring originated in the Board
of Supervisors created in 1857 by a Re
publican Legislature and Governor, but it
did not reach its full organization and
growth until 1809, when Oakey Hall be
came Mayor. The New York Timet pub
lished, two years and a half later, accounts
largely fraudulent amounting $11,000,000,
of which one third were passed in I860,
nearly two thirds ia J870. and the re
mainder in 1S71. In 1809 the open attacks
of Mr. Tilden upon the Ring and its re
turn blows at him began, long before Ihe
JVVio York Time cea)ed to be its ally, for
at the time many seemly respectable
papers and men succumbed to its corrupt
and dreadful influence. So far from Mr.
Tildcn's being hand and glove with these'
men, as Republican newspapers charge,
the hostility between them began as soon
as the Ring began to form. Mr. Tilden
opposed one of their schemes of plunder
as early as 1803, years beforo he was
made Chairman of the State Committee,
and they became bitterly hostile t him in
consequence During the rule of the
Ring. Mr. Tilden usually appeared in
State Conventions as a delegate from his
native county, Columbia, because the Ring
would not allow him to go from New York
City.
Mr. Tilden has himself stated why he
took the position of Chairman of the State
Committee.
" dexire to save from degradation, the

which interested private eiipidifi: lut in it
otMfc i onvencton, v:nere the Lett men in
society and business would go, became it
wasjorbut a day or two, thte with wfotm
I acted generally had the majority."
At this period neither Mr, Tilden nor
the general publio could sustain any
definite charge against members of the
Tweed Ring. He had no faith in them,
and they feared him. They determined to
get rid of him as Chairman of the State
Committee, and get the organization into
their hand.'. They made their attempt in
the State Convention of 1809; Mr. Tilden
fought them and carried Beven-eights of
the Convention to their one, Before this
he had denounced in the Courts the orders
of the infamous Judge Barnard, in certain
cases in which Tweed was interested,
Tweed's son being also Barnard's receiver,
in the terms they dnsrved, and had begun
the movement for judical reform which
ended in tho impeachment or forced
resignation of Tweed's worst judges.
The election of 18G9 gave the Demo
crats the law-making power for the first
time in 24 years. Tho Tweed Ring would
rather have hud a Republican Legislature.
The latter tliev could nlwn .,,rnmf
tli3 control of a Democratic Legislature !
mieht be taken out of their hauds tlirouL-h
the party machinery. The infuunus
Tweed Charter for riic City of New York
finally made its appearance in tho Legisla
ture of 1870 uud its progress was rapid. It
was well understood that it would pass be
cause it was known that a very larire
Bum of money would he expended to carry !
it. It h saul that $1,000,000 was taken t It now only remained to obtain judicial
Albany to crry this charter, much of proofs of the frauds. These Mr. Tilden
which was doublcss pocketed by the people 'got by a Lbotious examination of the
who handled tho money, Notwithstaud j books of the Broadway Bank, which oc
ing tho certainty of its passage, Mr. Til- cupied ten days, and absorbed all the en
PEN wcut to Albany th'w
-
opnog oj 181 ana denounced it in a
fearless speech before Tweed, who was
himself chairmau of the Senate Committej
on Cities which was to pass upon the
charaater. He branded it as a charter
that would put self-government in New
York City "in abeyance for from four to
eight years'creatiog a"Mayor without any
executive power, a Legislature without
uny UgjiUtive PQwr,ioi eloUooi without
any power in the people to affect the
Government for that inod.? This
Bpeech enrag3d Tweed who vowed that he
would depose Tilden from the jtate Com
mittee, but was warned bv Drominenr.
Democrats not to attempt it, and thought
better of it. The charter passed with the
vote of every Republican Senator save one,
and received a large Republican vote ia the
Assembly, Judge Noah Davis, a leading
Republican judge, was the authority given
tor the 8tatement,(rab8eauentlv. that six of
these Republican Senators the leaders J
received $10,000 each for the charter. $5.
l
000 each for similar bills that year, and
$5,000 for like service the following yeai.
Ihe iVcto lork Timet nronnnnced the
passage of (his infamous bill
against which Horace Greeley, Jack
son S. Schults. William M. Evarts.
and other Republicaos,protasted, with Mr.
J llden, and which put the City of New
York absolutely at the mercy of the most
powerful and most unscrupulous of Rings
a "most important and salutary" work,
and two days after said of another project
that "Senator Tweed was (is) in a fair way
to distinguish himself as a reformer,'1 and
added: "Wo trust that Senator Tweed
will manifest the same energy in the advo
cacy of this last reform which marked his
action in regard to the charter." The fol
lowing day, April 9, 1870, Mayor Hall
appointed Tweed, Sweeney and Fields to
the most important offices under this char
and the Times said that the appointments
"are far above the average in point of
personal fitness, and will be satisfactory."
Within less than a month the great rob
bery of the Tammany Ring was committed
under this charter,passed over Mr.Tilden's
opposition, aided by Republican votes, and
approved by Republican papers like The
New York Times. Tho Board of Special
Audit, consisting of Hall, Tweed and Con
nolly, held tho only meeting it ever held,
and audited bills amounting to $6,312,000,
of which about 60 per cent, was theft
This was only a part of the money stolen
under this charter opposed by Mr. Tilden
and favored by Hie Times, From Aprij
to December, 1870, the aggregrate of
fraudulent bills was $12,250,000, and in
1871, $3,400,000. Of this $14,000,000
was sheer plunder, The Ring had now
gained what seemed absolute control, and
every one hastened to make relations with
it. Lven Senator Conklinff and Geonre
Wm. Curtis, addressing the Ilonuijlioau
Convention, had nothing to say against it-
They could not in the face of the action of
their party associates. Mr. Tilden stood
alone.
The Ring had now absolute control of
all departments, all Courts below the
Court of Appeals, and the State Govern
ment. Mr. Tilden saw that its power
must be broken by the same means by
which it was obtained its hold on the
Legislature must be destroyed. The Ring
feared his attacks, and distinctly proposed
to allow Mr. Tilden to name the delegates
from New York to the State Convention
of 1871, so as to have no contest. lie
refused, and made the objective point of
the campaign of 1871 the capture of the
New York City delegation in the Legisla
ture. He sought the aid of distinguished
Democrats like Charles O'Conor, Horatio
Seymour, Francis Kernan, and Oswald Ot-
dorfer. With Mr. O'Conor was arras eed
the plan for suits against the Ring, which
was afterward carried nut. This was all
done before the Committee of Seyenty.lhe
association of citizens, was formed. Early
in September Mr. Tilden issued a letter to
26.000 Democrats throughout tho State,
calling on them "'to tuka a kuife and cut
the cancer out by the roots." Comptroller
Connolly was now alarmed, and was anx
ious to betray his associates of the Ring'
if he could receive immunity. Mr. Tilden
by study of the law, found that the Comp
troller could appoint a deputy and confer
upon him for a definite period all his powers;
Andrew II. Green. Mr. Tilden's life-lone
f'iend' "ho has since been
v i i
ew or. was niado Co
Comptroller of
'onnollv's dcLU'r:
and thus the key of the whole position
passed into tho hands of the
Reformers. The Comptroller could re
fuse to pass bills, and could make
public all expenditures. By this
master-stroke of Mr. Tildon's not only was
an end put to the thefts of the Ring, but
the means was provided for the collection
of the proofs on which Tweed and others
were afterwards tried. The Ring now
tried to force Connolly to resign, so that
the powers of the deputy might cease,
and then assumed to remove him. Mr.
Tilden checked this last attempt with a
legal opinion which he obtained from
Charles O'Conor. Mr. Tilden was wash
ing the Ring unceasingly, and a carriage
Btood at his door night and day, ready to
take him to an honest and tearless judge
who would vacate fraudulent orders by
Ring judges as fast as they were granted,
In the State Convention that month Mr.
Tilden did not have the success he had
hoped for, but he did not relax his efforts
for a moment. He worked hard during
the whole of this campaign, made an
agreement with Charles O'Conor and
William M. Evarts that they should be
candidates for the Legislature to continue
the fight there, and when they abandoned
the intention, went alone. On the even
ing of the election Mr. Tilden furnished
$10,000, for booths and ballots to the Re
form organization, and raispd an mnMi
money for the coutest, including his own
contributions, as the whole Committee of
Seventy, composed of wealthy men and
representing all the citizens of New lork
City without distinction of party, ' raised
for the same purpose from a community of
a million people. This flection was a
Waterloo to the Ring, and its power was
