Tweed sends from the Ludlow Street jail to the attorney general a proposition reciting that in return for Liberty and rest he will yield up All his property and be a faithful witness on behalf of the people. He says he has suffered much and Long in silence and has borne the Burden of what others should have shared. Affected with disease feeble from age and confinement and ill at Case in mind he seeks for the rest and Relief he so much and so sorely needs. He adds that the Only basis upon which be has the right to apply for leniency and Pardon is that he will make Complete surrender of his property and a full disclosure of his criminal companions. The proposition assumes the nature of a confession which goes Back As far As 1867, when the ring first began to assume form. It gives in detail the Story of various conferences Between the writer Sweeney Connelly Genet Oacy Hall and others by which Tweed was elected to the state Senate Connelly comptroller in 1867, and Hall mayor Jan. 1,1869. Tweed according to the Story transferred to state senator Winslow $200,-000 to secure the charter of 1870, which gave the ring the control of the City and the support of several influential members of the legislature. It was tweeds understanding with Winslow that the Money was to be divided Between Wood in Frost Elwood Brand Winslow Wood blood Morgan All of the Senate and also with Yan Pelton Williams Crowley Merriam and Beaman for their influence in the legislature. The confession gives the circumstances of the division of spoils Between himself Sweeney Hall Connolly and Woodward. It implicates Garvey Ingersoll Davidson Watson and a majority of the Board of supervisors. Mayor Halls proportion was to per cent. He shared throughout in All profits was in full collusion with the various details of the fraud and was fully aware of the fraudulent nature of the contracts presented for his signature. The document purporting to be a record of the proceedings of the Board of audit of May 5, 1870, by which or. Hall on his trial secured acquittal on the ground that he acted Only in a ministerial character. Tweed says was manufactured after the exposure. Hugh Hastings of the commercial advertiser is mentioned As having received a Check for $20,000, and checks for smaller amounts at various times. Or. Hastings is also credited with having brought Jay Gould and Tweed together by which Alliance the tammany and Erie rings were operated to their Mutual advantage. The confession also according to the world says that All the painting and Book cases in recorder Hackett a House were paid for by the City. Tweed gives the names of five persons whom he promises if immunity is Given them will swear to the truth of All of his statements. He has preserved All checks and kept a memoranda of All his transactions All of which will be placed at the disposal of the state. Of the five persons named Are e. D. Barber sex senator James Pierce Alex. Trear and William King. Tweeds former Deputy commissioner of Public works. Shortly after the publication of the a secret accounts in july 1871, Tweed says f. N. Bixby and sex sheriff then state senator of Brien came to him and offered to secure him against any further investigation of his Bank accounts his relations with the City or indeed from any further trouble if he would $150, toward of Briens claim against the City for $296,000 for unpaid fees. The two represented to him that they had such influence Over or. Tilden judge Barrett and w. Barrett As to immediately quash any further Steps in the pending investigation. Tweed says he paid them the amount Aud he understands they afterwards secured the same amount from Connolly upon the same representation. He says he does net consider of Briens claim has any Vejil Merit. Hugh Smith Sweeney a particular Friend attended to All transaction with judge Cardozo by which judicial action was taken in behalf of the ring. Tweed says that the Navarro claim of $1,000,000 against the City for water meters is a fraud. He mentions Thurlow Weed by name but does not connect him with any equivocal transaction. He mentions judge Folger of the court of appeals and George h. Purser of new York m persons to whom he paid Money. The confession concludes with a Promise that the writer will be a witness for the City in any suit brought by the City for the recovery of moneys from any of the persons mentioned and he does not ask that suits against him be quashed but that he be released from confinement without bail. Tweeds counsel says since his trouble most of those whom he had looked upon As his friends in his palmy Days have held themselves aloof from him while Many of them had been loudest in their denunciation of him. He asks nothing further from them and does not propose to recognize any further claim upon him for silence. The publication of tweeds confession created great excitement among the politicians. Justice Bixby denies that his brother senator Bixby Ever proposed immunity to Tweed in 1871, provided he would have $150,000 of James of Briens claims against the City audited and paid. Recorder Hackett declined to say anything about the statement that his House paint ing etc., were paid for with the City Money. Or. Hastings of the commercial advertiser says in reference to the allusion to him that the affair was a purely business transaction the Check being made payable to his order and passing through the hands of his Watiker and broker in a legitimate Way. He denies that any Money passed through his hands to senator Woodin. He says he did bring Gould and Tweed together As he believed they had some differences but at that time Tweed was considered a very respectable Man and was associated in business matters with the most eminent citizens. Judge Folger says the statement that Tweed paid him Money is untrue. Senator Woodin introduced resolutions in the Senate at Albany to Day for an investigation into the statement relative to the payment of Money to him by Winslow and Hastings. New your april 19. Comptroller John Kelly who has seen the confession of Tweed says the publication the other Day was a Correct abstract except the reference to judge Folger. Or. Kelly adds Tweed says Winslow stated to him that the $200,000 were divided among the persons named for procuring the passage of the charter. He gives the names of Between 200 Aud 300 persons to whom he paid Money for corrupt purposes.

Nicholls and his adherents rejected this proposition he says a a mainly because of their fixed belief in the truth of the statement repeatedly made that the Foster Matthews agreement is eventually in some Way to give the government of the state to the democracy. If this belief were removed from their minds perhaps they would not be so defiant and would accept any adjustment you offer. The reported put pose of the administration to carry out the suggestions of messes Foster and Matthews by the withdrawal of the United states troops is a standing menace to the republicans in this state and encourages the democracy to emulate the arrogant policy of Gen.

F sir prior to my entering upon the duties of the presidency there had been stationed by order of my predecessor in the immediate Vicinity of the building used As a state House in new Orleans la., and known As the mechanics Institute a detachment of United states infantry. Finding them in that place i have thought proper to delay a decision of the question of their removal until i could determine whether the condition of affairs is now such As to either require or justify the continued military intervention of the National government in the affairs of the state. In my opinion there does not now exist in Louisiana such Domestic violence As is contemplated by tile Constitution As ground upon which the military Power of the National government May be invoked for the defense of the state. The disputes which exist As to tile right of certain claimants to the chief executive office of that state Are to be settled and determined not by the executive of the United states but by such orderly and peaceable methods As May be provided by the Constitution and Laws of the state. Having Assurance that no resort to violence is contemplated but on the contrary the disputes in question Are to be settled by peaceful methods under and in accordance with tile Lawi deem it proper to take action in accordance with the principle announced when i entered upon the duties of the presidency you Are therefore directed to see that or per orders Are issued for the removal of said troops at an Early Date from their present position to such regular Barracks in the Vicinity As May be selected for their occupation.
