XOCX IILAVD,. .XU.XVOXS, Monliy, Aujust 21, 1376. MTMMSBDfJB In Breaking Rings! THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE DOWNFALL OF THE TWEED AND CANAL RINGS! (CoDtioued.) THE CANAL RING. The Canal Riog of the State of New York was a much oldef organization than tne lwcea lUDg. its career was more prolonged, and the territory it covered was larger, though its operations were not of such magnitude. Nevertheless, it was an organization oioro powerful for evil in the politics of tho State. It was a clique of contractors, who by means of fraudulent devices in contracts for repairs, &c, by false measurements, estmates and audits, plundered the canals of their immense revenues. To secure confederates, the Ring joined itself to both parties, nominat ed, where it could, all canal officers, and took care to have a cufficient proportion of its friends in the Legislature, and also to have the canal appropriation committees made up of its tools. This secret combi nation, which always avoidod publicity and display, had an immense influence in the politics of the State, especially in the Democratic party, and dated back many years in its hwtory. It was this powcrfu organization which Mr. Tilden conceived it to be his first duty to attack on taking the Governor's chair. In his first annua message to the Legislature he asked for the passage of laws facilitating the punish mcnt of official defaulters and peculators, which had boen prepared by himself and Charles O'Conor. While the public understood that those lhad been framed especially to enable certain suits to be brought against the Tweed King, they did not know that they were framed, while in tended to cover all such cases, with especial reference to the Canal King, which Oov, Tilden was getting ready to expose In his message he also outlined his policy of adminibtrativc reform which he has steadily adhered to since. Meanwhile he was collecting lis proofs, and, on th 18th of March,1 1875, he addressed to th Legislature a long and alle message describing in detail the methods of frauds practiced for many years upon the canal showing the extent to which the robberies of the King hud run the State in debt, an asking an investigation. The disclosures made by his message aroused a storm of indignation throughout the State, and the frightened King, though having great in fluence in the Legislature, could not pre vent an investigation. A commission was appointed, headed by John Bigelow, which devoted the remainder of the year to the investigation, oud disclosed astound ing frauds. So much if the fraud had been accomplished through Acts of the Legislature and awards of boards, that the work of obtaining judicial proof was diffi cult almost beyoud belief, but the Com mission,, by dint of greot industry and skill, succeeded in unearthing and proving great thefts. The facts they obtained were reported to Ooy. Tilden as boou as they could be got into proper form, and were by him at once transmitted to the Attorney General, with instructions to bring suits. These suits arc now pend ing in the Courts, and if successful, will restore large sums to the treasury of the State. This is only a part howevor, of the results achieved. Gov. Tilden's (lis closures not only destroyed forever the political influence of the Ring, but put an immediate stop to its fraudulent pruc ticcs, and the triumph of his llcform ticket at the Fall election of 1875 put the canals under the charge of honest men. The reform in the management of the canals is complete; the work of punibh'iDg the thieves still goes on as fast as the Courts can reach it. I he result ot Oov. iildcns action was Repairs and maintenance. . . . 2.247,297 Damages 305,796 2,553,093 Balance against the State..... $650,103 This amount, however, did not include the interest on the canal debt, the cost of collections and the difference between the miscellaneous receipts and expenditures ncluding these the loss to the State dur ing the fiscal year of 1875, was $1,412,470. One of the favorite devices for fraud on the canals was that of building vertical wall where elope wall only was required. the first kind being much more expensive. he investigations of the Canal Commis sion showed that in six years the Stata ad been robbed in this way of $1,300,000. be Commission, beside disclosing all the rottenness of existing canal management, and destroying it, proved improper pay mentstothe amount of $393,875. They showed that the amount expended on new work on the canals ia the six years which their investigation covered was $8,444,- 824, of which a good share was undoubted fraudulent. They detected, exposed and drove from his office the Republican Auditor of the Canal Department, who had been carrying on a brokerage business in the obligations he was required by law to audit, and was "shaving" them to the amount of hundreds of thousands of dol ars. Now all this is changed. The canals of New York are managed, under Gov. Tilden's administration, with the same strict business economy and honesty as if they were a private enterprise in pri vate hands. Gov. Tilden's motto has al ways been that the government existed for the people not the people for the govern menu IN IMPROVING METH ODS OF ADMINISTRA TION. Lrov. Tilden builds up after tearing d)wn. After ridding the City of New York of tlm Tweed Ring, he saw the ne cessity of erectine every possible barrier to the formation of Rings in future, both in that and other cities. He therefore addresses a message to the Legislature in IS75, calling their attention ro the crush ing burden of municipal debts, the need of restricting munioipal expenditures and lightning the load of local taxation, an the necessity of providing some uniform and economical system rf gvcrnniPit for cities of the State. This message showed the aggregate debt of the twenty-four cities of State to be $175,000,000; the ag gregate ol tho city taxation,$3G.000,000;the aggregate county and state taxation, $13 OtX),000; the aggregate of taxation, $50, iKH),OO0. The Legislature authorized Gov Tilden to appoint a commission, which he composed of many of the ablest lawyers and most distinguished specialists in the State, without regard to party. This com mission has now been at work for more than a year in preparing a general char ter for all cities in the State, which is ex pected to put an end to many of the worst abuses now existing in municipal govern ments. Gov. Tilden's exposure of the Canal Ring blasted all the projects of the Ring and put an end to the wasteful expendi ture ofthe people's money. But not con tent with this, Gov. Tilden, during the Winter of 1876, urged upon the Legisla ture a number ot improvements in the canals which would greatly increase their carrying capacity, and which could bt made with the money the corrupt ex pcmliture uf which on the canals his dis closures hud prevented. Measures were at once taken to carry these recommendations iuto effect, and to introduce further re forms in the canal management. So that when Mr. Tilden retires from the Gov crnor's chair next January he can not only show that he has broken up the two great political Rings of the State, but that he has done much to repair the ravages they have made, and more than that, wil cave to the cities and the canals a re formed system of government a bulwari for the taxpayer and an impassable barrier to the thief. Gov. Tilden is not a detec tive politician; his reforms are complete and statesmaulike. (Concluded To-morrow.) MEDICAL. FOfcTV S'JEAKS BFtJl THE PCBUO.
