Tlio following Htiiteincnt, embracing, Oo

is given for publication by tho Hon. Abram
S. Hewitt, chairman of tho National Demo
cratic committee :
To the rublic:
Tho New York Timet, which for years
prior to 187f htvl been tho eulogist of Gov
ernor Tildcii, immedlatuly after liobccamo a
formidable cniulltlnto for tho Presidency be
gan n BcrlfN of asault upon his private
character. At length these assaults culminat
ed in tho chargo of making a false slatmuent
of his income in 1S02. Ily dint of reitera
tion and fabricate! specifications of items
nnd details, having tho semblance of actual
accounts, some well-meaning persons were
disturbed. It therefore occurred to me to
apply to tho Secretary of the Treasury fur
certified copies of tlio incomo returns of
Governor Tllden and of Governor Hayes,
and on tho second day of September I made
such nn application. Tho copies applied for

letter received tho poor courtesy of an ac
knowledgment. Meanwhile, tho adversaries
of Governor Tildcn have apparently had free
access to these returns, and have even been
permitted to pltnio-litliogrnph so much of
tlii ni us miiud their purposes. I submit this
(net lo tlio American people without com
ment. .Meanwhile, receiving no reply from
the public authorities, who seem to regard
the documents in their cu-toily as held in
trust for tlio Kepubliciiii party, and not for
tho whole, people,! addressed a note to Judpo
Jumes P, Sinnott, who was the confidential
law clerk of Governor Tilden during the
whole period in which the law imposing an
income tax was in force, asking him to ex
amine the pretended account of Governor
Tildcn's income during tho year 1802, pub
lished by the 7V;ifj, and furnish mo with
such explanations in regard thereto as his
necessary familiarity with tho details would
enable him to supply. I have this day re
ceived his reply, presenting a full and entire
ly satisfactory refutation of tho charges of
His answer, herewith submitted to the
public, shows that out of thirteen pretended
items of income amounting to $110,000,
eleven items amounting to $S4,000 aro wholly
fictitious, while of tho other two only one
of $1,000 is entirely true and tho second of
$25,000 is only partially true.
There is therefore ho ground for the as
sertion that tho sworn returns weru not a
just and accurate statement of the net in
como of Governor Tllden, after making such
deductions for losses, interest paid and
other charges as tho law authorized him to
If exception bo taken to Judge Siimott's
letter on the gaiund that it does not con
tain a detailed statement of tho sovcral
items upon which tlio return of 1802 was
made, it is proper to state that the reguh.
tions of tbu departmeutdid not rcqttiro Filch
detailed statements, and very few profesion
al men made such statements, or could now
retail the items or havo kept tho nienitiraii

If Governor Tilden was not in nomination
fur tlio Presidency, I do not know of any
man in this community whoso mere state
ment of a fact would have been more gener
ally accepted as tho truth, and I full to see
why the eminent position in which ho bus
been placed by a large body ot his fellow
citizens should bo held to detract from the
sanctity of his oath.

Nkw Yohk, Septemb.ir 20, 1S70. lion
A brum ,V. Jlivitl, Lntirmitn My DtarSir
I have received your note, wilh tho copy of
tho 77ir of .September 8, in reference to
Mr, Tilden's income return for 1SG2, and
anil have taken tho earliest timo which my
ollicial engagements would permit to send
you tho Information yon solicit.
I wm in Mr, Tilden's oliice during the
whole period covered by tho allegations in
tho Timet, and was more fnmllliir than any
other person perhaps oven than Mr, Tilden
himself with his piofessional services and
with tho earnings of his nllice, It being
among my ditties lu keep meli record or
mciiiiirauda of thorn as wits preserved. The
charges to which ymi specially refer aro
i'iiiiiilr.i'd and placarded on the front pugu
of tho Timet, where, in parallel columns aro
displayed u fuu simile ofMr. Tilden's income
tax return fur the year 1SII2, contrasted with
a pretended slaten cut of hisre.il iueomu for
that year. 1 Invo examined this slnlemodt
witii euro, and from my pe.sonal knowledge
llnd it to be falso in every important par
ticular, Tho first thing in this fabrication of the
77wfj whicli arrested my attention was tho
ovident intent to mislead, which characterizes
it. It purports In bo made up of separate
items, tlio wording of which is varied in or
der to givo tho reader the idea that these
items had been taken di-cctly from bills, or
accounts which had been rendered In snmo
one, or had been entered in some book of
account, l'or example, tho fi-st item reads :
''February 19. l'Vo for trustees and master
commissioner' deed," etc.; but the wording
of tho second Item is uiado different, and
reads: "February 25. Feet and expensts
wilh reference to deed," etc., and tho third
item ii put in still another and dillcrcm mode
of expression, thus; ''March 1. For draft
ing, etc., first inortgngc deed," while In the
fourth item the word "fees" (and this time
without the "expenses") is brought into re
quisition, The obvious intent of these con
trivances is to givo color to thrcb(igus items
and tho appearance of being copied from
hoiuu real paper.
Tin: 1'ir.sT six rmis.
Tho first six items of this slateincnt relate
to matters connected witlt tho Pittsburg,
Fort Wayiio and Chicago Hallway, uud u
right iimtewtamlliig of Mr. Tilden's relations
to that enterprise, prior to uud during the
year 1802, is im)ortant ot the outset. Now,
Urn fact Is llrnt no such accounts a nro con
tained In these six Items ever existed, and
no one or these pretended Items hin ever
been made tho subject of a specific chargo
by Mr. Tllden against nny Individual or cor
poration whatever. Mr Tilden became counsel
for the holders of various clause t bonds
secured upon tho Pittsburir, Fort Wayne
and Chicago Railroad, which was and Is a
railroad running through four different States
and built In sections by three different cor
porations; which wero afterwards consolidat
ed. When Mr. Tllden becamo counsel for
tho bondholders In 1859, It had outstanding
tilno different classes of bonds, upon nil of
which default had been made, and its affairs
in general were In apparently hopeless bank
ruptcy and confusion. To rccuo this enter
prise Mr. Tilden labored continually, nnd
much moro laboriously than a lawyer ordi
narily does in regard to any ono particular
case, from 1859 to the early part of 18(52.
Tlio labor was particularly arduous during
tho years 17C0 nnd 18(51, Suits nf foreclos
ure, were Instituted early In each nf the States,
and these had so far progressed by June,
18151, that decrees of foreclosure nnd sale
were then entered. Tho road was actually
sold on the 21th of October, 18(51, and pos
session taken under the sale. Of course,
this could not bo accomplished until nil the
conflicting interests-tho nine different classes
of bondholders, tho secured creditors, tlio
unsecured creditors, and the stockholders
had been harmonized and satisfied j nor un
til legislative acts adenuato to meet a case
such as had never before arisen, cither hero
or In hnglautl, had been devised, prepared
and successfully passed in four different
States. AH this was accomplished under tho
advice and with tho labor of Mr. Tilden bo
foro tho close oftho year 1861. Ills engage
ments on account of this railroad during
that wholo period were constant and en
grossing. Whatever pay he received was
fur the entire servicn ns a whole it was not
Itemized or apportioned.
Tin: incomi: tax law.
The income tax law went intoeffert on the
first of January, 18(52, nud the incomes fall
ing under its operations wern thno nccrnlng
from and after said first day of January,
18G2, Income which had accrued beforo
that timo was exempt from its operation. I
do not think it necessary to occupy much
time or space 'in discussing the legal aspects
of this incomo question, or in sustaining the
right of a citizen tn receive nnd retain free
from income tax moneys which ho had al
ready earned by his own labor in years when
no income tax existed. The rulo on this
subject was early declared and promulgated
by the Internal Revenue Department itself
and is in full accord with these views. In
18GI Hon. Georgo S. Routwell, then late
Commissioner of Internal Revcnue.prepnred
a "Manual of tho Direct and Excise Tax
System,"which Mr.Secretary Chnse officially
approved and authorized. Under date of
May,18G3,this manual contalns(pp. 273,274)
tho following decision by the Commissioner
of Internal Revenue : "A merchant's re
turn of income should eover tho business of
the yenr 1802, excluding previous years
Physicians andlawyers should inoludo actual
receipts for services rendered In 18G2, to
gether with an estimatejjof unrealized or
contingent Incomo duo to that year." In
viow of these decisions and official instruc
Hons of the Internal Revenuo Department
Mr. Tilden's income return for 18G2 wat
made up so that even if a different viejv had
sinro been authoritatively held and expressed
Mr. lildeu would stand completely justified
Hut there is no authority fur any different
TUP. CHAHOHS l.V DHTAIL.
With these preliminary observations
will proceed to examine tho fabrications of
tho Timet in detail. The following Is a

HXAMIN'ATIO.V OF ITKUg.
First item, This is entered under date of
February ID, 1802, as u "Keo for Trustees
nud Master Commissioner's Deed, &o ,
ifi.OOO." No such chargo was ever made,
rendered or collected by Mr, 'J'ild.'n or any
ono nn his behalf at tho (later mentioned or
at any othertime. Tho instrument itself was
a simple trustees' and mnstcrn' deed, princi
pally consisting of recitals adapted to the
i9o of a railroad foreclosure, and peculiar
cli Icily in the magnitude of the property
conveyed. The preparation of tucli an in
strument could form no item of charge worth
considering In n payment for an entire ser
vice of years, and no (.pecifio charge what
ever was ever luado fur U.
fcVcond Item. February 25. "Fees and
expenses, with refcrenco l Ictl of former
Jtailroatl Company, pursuant to Iho order of
Court, tie., $2,000," No tach chargo way
ever made, rendered or collcrtetl by Mr. Til
den. Ill point of fact tho document, which
n not (julto so long ns un ordinary deed, and
was intended tn havo tho effect of a quit
claim, was not drawn by Mr. Tilden at all,
but by Judge N. K. tSmiyiu) now, ol Iho U.
H. (Supremo Court, Mr. Tilden was never
paid for it in nny shape.
Third Item. March 1. "For drafting,
etc,, First Mortgngo Deed of Reconstructed
Corporation, $5,000." No such chargo as
this and no specific chargo whatever, was
ever made, rendered or collected by Mr.
Tilden. Tlio instrument itself was unquc
tlonnbly n very Important ono and admirably
drAWn, but it wai onlyono item of continued
service running back to the yenr 1859, and
tho rules which would govern a charge un
der nn employment to draw single paper
of this description have no application at
all in tliis cao.
Fourth Item. March 1. "Fees for Sec
ond Mortgago Deeds, etc., !s2,500." No
such chargo was ever made, rct'dered or col
lected by Mr. Tilden. Tho obncrvatlons in
regard to the first mortgago apply equally lo
this, with tho additional forcn that being,
from tho nature oftho case, in innet respects
a copy of the first mortgage, It furnished
great deal leirs basis for a cSirge, Jn point
of fact no specific sum was ever paid for it.
Fifth item. March 1. "Fees for third
mortgago deed, etc., f 1,000." Tho absurdi
ty of this chargo is transparent. This third
mortgage was on tho same property, and
drawn for tlio same client, ns tho second.'.but
secured an indebtedness only about two-
fifths as large, and yet this statement puts
down $1,500 ns the fee for drawing the third
mortgage as against $2,500 for the second.
Of course no such ehnrgo, or any other spe
cific charge, was ever made by Mr. Tilden
for the drawing nf this instrument.
Sixth iteir. -March 3. "Foos for final
conveyance to railway company, subject to
tho mortgage, 1'ittsburg, Fort Wayno and
Chicago Railroad Company, 35,000." Mr.
Tilden never made, rendered or collected,
nor was ho ever paid) any such bill or item
in n bill. Nor is there anything but tlio
dates of these deeds on which to base tho as
sumption that the work on them was exclu
uively done in ihe'yenr 1802
mil tildhn'h cn.ntaiw.
And right here, it is proper tn say a few
words in regard to Mr. Tilden's scale of
charges. It Is a great mistake to supposa
that counsel must have been paid in 1802 at
the high rate which ruled lu subsequent
years, Mr, Tildeu at thai ti me was in the
habit of charging very low prices. Tho
class of business in which he wm engaged
required, particularly, great skill in negotia
tion a thorough knowledge of men, a thor
ough knowledge of the railway system and
business condition and prospects of tho
country, nnd a constructive power of devis
ing and suggesting ways and means of rec
onciling apparently conflicting pecuniary
interests to the permanent benefit and satis
faction of all concerned. The mere drawing
of papers was hardly thought of in estimat
ing the value of Mr. Tilden's services. Ho
was paid because he reconciled and rescued,
as no other man in this country could then
have done, interests worth millions which to
manypersons seemed hopelessly lost Yet in
this publication he is Betdown,upou mere sur
mise and without any data er authority, as
receiving twenty-four thousand dollars for
work which could not reasonably have occu
pied more than ono month of his tiuic,whllo
tho nnswo.- in the St. Louis, Alton and Terro
Haute case discloses the fact that he was
working at the same class of business and
about tho same time at tho rate of twenty
thousand dollars for four ctusccutive years'
service, or at the rato of live thousand dol
lars a year,
Seventh Item. "June 14,Ciimberhuid Coal
and Iron Company, $5,000." Tho Timet al
lows that one-half of this sum should he de
ducted, on the ground that it was probably
not earned in 1802. Neither was any of it.
Governor Tilden rendered no services to the
Cumberland Coul and Iron Com puny in that
year. Ho did render it important services
during previous years, beginning with 1858,
but they were all conduced beforo tho close
of 18131. If anything was received it must
have been in bonds, and in settlement of an
old account nud nut taxable.
p.iglith Item. "October 17, service to
Second Mortgage Uundlinlilers nf St. Louis,
Alton ami Torre llauto Railroad Company,
as per affidavit, $10,000." Of course no bill
was ever rendered by Mr. Tilden in the
above lorni. Hut this item, and (lie one
next following, furnished the only basis on
which the Timet started out on this defama
tory crusade. It pretended lo havo discovered
an inconsistency between Governor Tilden's
return of income in 18(32 uud certain allega
tions contained in an Answer in Fquity,tiled
by tlio def'uuduuts, of whom Mr. Tilden is
one of four, in a suit brought by the St.
Louis, Alton and Terro llauto Railroud
Company. If you will turn to page 37, fo
lio M5, you will llnd theso woids : "Tliat lor
such services tlio uelundunt Tilden mado a
charge of ten thousand dollars against suid
second mortgago bondholders, uud tho suld
chargo was paid by or on behalf of said sec
ond morbrago bondholders, on thn 17th of
October, 1SG2, out uf u fund contributed by
suid second mortgage bondholder, under an
agreement between lliemselvos dated Novem
ber 1, 185'J."
WHAT WHIIU Hill HHliVIClW;
Now then, the question presents itself,
what were tho "services'' for which this pay
incut was made and when were they render
ed ? To oscerluiu this ne need only look ut
folio 1 -1M , where we liud theso words: "And
they further say, touching the statements in
bill of complaint as to tho services of the
defendant, Samuel J, Tilden, that ho Jiud,
long prior to and at tho time of the com
mencement of tho foreclosure, suit iu tho
said bill of complaint mentioned, been tlio
counsel for tho second mortgago bondhold
ers, and had been Irom some timo in the
year 1857. It appears, therefore, that this
money was paid for services running through
five years auteiiorto 1802, and it does uot
appear that uny part whatever was earned
in that year. Tho decree fixing aud con
firming tho rights of the second mortgage
bondholders was entered at tho August term
iu the year 18(31, and the sale itself took
place as early as Mnrch, 18G2. No appreci
able part, if ouy, of this Item can therefore
be apportioned to the year 1802.
THIS TIHD)' JIAIKbTAY.
t. Ninth Item. "November 7. Servian
to First Mortgago lloiulholilers of St, Louht,
Alton and Terro Haute Railroad Company,
tu per allidayil, ?10,000." This item ws the
original mainstay of the Tuic slander, nr.d
is still clung lo with considerable tenacity.
In aupport of iU theory on the subject, the
'JUm brut appealed to tlio answer before
mentioned. To this document we shall now
refer, and at pane 37 wo find tho followlm
statemeuU: "That the defendant Tilden,
(or a part of his services aforesaid, also made
chargo or tho like sum of ten thousand
dollar on account of professional services '
I tn un HUM ' Hfti
THE COLUMDIAN, VOL. X, KO.
COLUMBIA DKM0C1IAT, VOL.XLI.no. U
rendered to tho first mortgago bondholders
and the receivers, which was paid to him by
the said Azarluh O. Flagg, surviving receiv
er os aforesaid." "And theso dc
fendanU deny that cither of tho two claim
of tho defendant lost oforesnld wero for or
wcro ever stated by him on for claims against
tho reorganization, or that it was rcsolvod by
tho purchasing commttteo last aforcsntd that
any claim of tho defendant last aforesaid for
ten thousand dollars against the reorganiza
tion be allowed, ns in tho said bill of com
plaint mentioned." (Fol. 14G, 147, 118.)
A MISTAKE AS TO TIME.
To ascertain tho timo oftho rendition of
the services on account of which such pay
ment was made, tho reader is referred to the
opposite pago, at folio 141, whero wo find it
stated that Mr. Tilden "was also tho counsel
for said recsivcrs, and that ho also acted as
tho principal counsel for tho said first mort
gago bondholders, in relation to tho fore
closure proceedings hereinbefore mentioned,
and other proceedings connected thorewith,
and tlmt nrich services had commenced prior
to the year 1859, and were rendered from
timo to time during aporlod of upwards of
three yeurs thereafter." In other words, the
services was rendered in 1858, 1859, 18G0
and 1801. No considerable part of theso
services belong to tho year 1SG2. Tho fore
closure proceeding.! in which they trere ren
dered had already reached a decree Jn Au
gust, 1861. I nn avAro that the most dis
ingenuous construct 'on has been put by the
Times upon a sentence from the answer
of which I have here quotoJ.vir., tho words,
'and that such services hod commenced pri
or to tho year 1859, and were rendered from
time to timo during a period of upwards of
three years thereafter." The argument of
the 7imtJ is that this sentence admits the
continuance of theso services during the
whole of In-year 1SC2. I submit tlutt even
if thee words stood nlnne, any fair mind
would road them as meaning that the ser
vices cunlinlied fur upwards of three years
after they had commenced, which is express
ly slated to hovu been before tho year 1859.
This is the true construction of the wo'ds.
It is their meaning. It accords' with tho
TUG WHOLU TIlOTH.
Rut, of course, if thevwritnr desired to as
certain tlio meaning and Intent of this pas
saga, and found it ambiguous, he would
look to tho context and, indeed, to the whole
answer. Ry referring to page 17 of this saino
answer you will perceive that tho foreclo
sure suit in which theso services were ren
dered was terminated iu a decree us surly as
August 8, 18(31 (fol. (37), and that thn road
was actually sold in the month of March,
1862. So that there wiwt have been at
least nino mouths of tlio veur 1862 which
could not have culled for these services, uud'
as to the interval between January aud
March, 1862, any lawyer will understand
that this could nut havo called ior much ser
vice, being the timo occupied by the ruu
niug of the advertisement of salo, etc. Fur
thermore, tho payments which give rite to
the discussion were both made before tho
close oftho year 1S02, aud it is bo stated in
the answer. If I recollect rightly, the Timet
has on a former occasion referred to the
ditto of tho agreement of first mortgage bond
holders bet forth iu tlio unswer (April 15,
1861) us evidence that the services were of
short coutiuiiHiice, Rut this agreement was
but the final confirmation of negotiations
which hud been going on for three yeurs.
There was a preliminary agreement adopted
at u meeting of bondholders September 22,
1859, and modified from tiuiti lu lime, uu-1
this outlier agreement was itself tho result
of prolonged iiegoiiutinus, tlio nUuirn of the
load being nliuust hopelessly involved wilh
comUcting cluinit and interests, l'ur.uaiit
to his preliminary agreement pusaessiuu uf
the entire i ail road had been obtaiuud us far
buck as December 12, 1859.

time, was a client of Mr. Tilden's und that ho
never, iu the year 1862, or at any othertime,
received uny fees from that company, nor

ever. Twelfth Item. "Shuro of bonds retained

In 1862, nor was so large amount ever re

At theoiilsetofthe.se attacks on Governor
Tilden, in regard to his taxable Income for
1862, still another allegation was made, as
if on positive knowledge, namely, that he
had received from the St. Louis, Alton uud
Torre Huuto Railroad Company S-KI.OOO iu
first mortgage bonds during that ytar. This
chargo was unqualifiedly false; and now that
it has been pointed out iu the public jour
nals that the complaint itself, in tho St.
Louis, Alton and Terro Haute suit, allowed
these bonds not used up to the year 1864,
tho charge appears to have Wen abaudoued,
even by the Timet, which newspaper, after
asserting the fact in positive terms, subse
quently published a report of a committee
of that company, also antagonistic to Mr.
Tilden, but which showed that, iu 1870,
these bonds wero still in tho hands oftho
purchasing committee, aud so could not
have formed any part of bis invuuio in

Ihiin a feneration had lived a life so pur
and blameless that the breath of calumny
had failed to touch him until by tho general
voico of a great party ho had become their

of tho people.
MR. TILDEN ASKED KOFAVOnS.
Tn renneet to tho allegation that after two
years of tho Income tax Mr. Tllden made no
return, but left that portion ot bis tax wnica
was in excess of the payments for his ac
count made by the corporations, whose bonds
and stock ho held, to bo assessed under th'
law by tho estimate of the public officers,
the answer is simple Tho statute gave thi
tax-payer the option to tako that course,
and good and honorable reasons existed why.
a scrupulous man should accept that option.
Mr. Tildon received no favor from tho gov
umment officers, and sought nono. Ho did
nothing but pay all they imposed on hits.
Nearly all his incomo from investments
paid tho tax through the corporations whole
bonds and stocks he held without allowanco
for tho lawful deductions. On tho rcsidui),
after the lawful deductions wero made, tie
believed at tho time that instead of paying
loss ho oftcner paid moro than would have
been the result of a full, but troublesome,
accounting. Ho preferred in that way to
b exempted from the difficulties incident to
attempting a specific statement of the afTaiia
in wiiiohhe was interested, and oftho coi

investor ? and al to be exempted from the
