Washington, March 12th, 1855. I To tk? Board of Mtna?*rs of Mr Washing ton National Monuuunt Society. I Gentlemen : Having been forcibly ejec ted from my office at the monument this morning, and the property placed in my hands by you thereby wrested from me in defiance of all right, by the agent of a body who choose to call themselves the board ol managers, backed by a mob, it become? my duty to make a "statement of the oc | carrences which led to this result, in or j der that you may take such steps in regard to the matter as may be deemed proper. From the day of the so-called election, /February 22d,) until last Wednesday, March 7th, I held undisputed possession of the building and property, and Exer cised the same authority as I had done from the day of my appointment, July 1st, 1848. On that day, (March 7th,) tht day watchman, George Hilton, informed me that he had received a note irom the clerk of the sell-styled new board, Eck loff, (the same who made the fraudulent entry on your journal, which wa* expun ged by yon in the presence of both lam and those claiming their election by thai fraudulent entry,) instructing him not to pay OT^r to ma the monies received by I John J. Abert, Walter Jone3, Thos. Carbery, W. A. Bradley, jP. R. Fendall, Thos. Munroe, Walter Lenox, M. F. Maury, Thos. Blagden. him from visitors, but to pay them to J.' M. McCalla, their treasurer. I enquired of him whether or not ho recognized any ri^ht in them to instruct him; he answered t'oat he did not. I then told him to re ceive no messages from them, and if they came to him again, to tell thein if they had any communications to make, it must be to me; that I had control of him, and would require him to pay over the contributions to me as he had always done. This took place in presence of a witness. On that same afternoon he came over to me in the city, and handed me a letter, of which the following is a copy, written in the handwriting of Mr. Joseph H. Bradley : Washington N. M. Office. ( March 7,1855. f Mr. War Dougherty, Superintendent. Sir?Until further directions lrom the board of managers, who are now organi zing their plan of operations, all monies received by any officer or agents of the so ciety will be paid directly to the treasurer. You will, therefore, forbear to call on Mr Hilton for collections made by him until that plan shall have been adopted* of which due notice will be given. Your obedient servants, Jos II. Bradley, J. M. McCalla, \ (ieorgk 11. Plant, S. C. Busby, ; Samuel S. Buiggs, Committee. What the plan of operations mentioned in the above, that they were organizing, I. at that time, did not know, but subse quent events show that it was to obtain possession by mob law. On the next day, after receiving the abtrve letter, I seut an answer through the post office, directed to Mr. Bradley; the following is a copy: Washington National Monument, ( March 8th, 1855. j" Jossph II. Bradley, Esq. Sir ?I have received a communication signed by yourself and fofcr others, repre senting yourselves as a committee of the board of managers of the Washington National Monument society, directing me to forbear calling on the watchman for the collections made by him, as you had ordered that all monies received by any officer or agent should be paid directly to tiie treasurer. In answer, I would state ! that I am, and always have been, the *n!y j authorized agent to collect monies at the ' monument, and am alone responsible to [ the board, the watchman merely recjeiv i ing contributions from visitors, and pay | icg them over to me whenever I think proper to demand it. As I do not recog nize the existence of any board ol mana gers, except the one under whose oriiers 1 have been acting, and yet continue to act, I shall decline receiving auy instruc tions from any person or persons, except the member? of that board, and conse quently I shall pursue the sime courie in relation to the contributions as I have heretofore done, and will require the watchman to account to me aione for the monies received by him. Respectlully vours, Wm. Doughbrif. Superintendent of the W. Nat. Mon. On this day, I learnt (hat they had placed a person on the ground the even ing before as a night watch. I enquired of Hilton whether he had suffered him to go into my office, or any of the other buildings of which he, Hilton, had the keys; he replied that he had not. i gave him positive instructions not to allow him to enter any of them, and also direc ted the night watch, Mr. Barrow Frere, to allow him to remain on the grounds so loLg as he did not interfere with any thing, but if he attempted to exc-rcisef any authority, te put him off On Friday mornirg i received an order from the building committee to advertise thejtwo horses belonging to tlic monument; for sale at public auction, in order thit, if J these persons believed that they had any just claim on the property of the monu ment, they might have an opportunity to test the matter legally, by trying to pre vent the sale. Immediately n receiving the order, I went to the monumen. and removed the horses to a public stable, as I was fearful that if they remained there, they might share the fate of the three that belonged to the monument last June, who were poisoned and died. On Saturday morning early, Mr. Frere, the night watch, came to my house, and informed me that llilton had the evening before given up to Mr. Bradley the keys of the I various workshops and other buildings on the ground, including the key of my I office. 1 immediately consulted a mem ber of the board, who is a lawyer by pro 1 fession, who instructed me that the fact I of their having obtained possession of the keys surreptitnusly by the treachery of tv e miserable tool they made use of, did I not, iu the least, interfere with my just and legal right of possession, and directed I me to go to the building, and exercise the same authority as I had heretofore J done, and retain possession urtil force j was used to remove me, but on no account I to make such resistance as would create J a riot or cause difficulty, as the board did not wish to do anything but retain peace able possession of their property. 1 went |direc;lyto the monument, accompanied I by Frere, the night watch, and foun# my I offi e open, and no person in it; standing some fifty or sixty yards off against the stable, I saw five or six persons, amdngst them llilton. I entered the office and sat down. Shortly after Hilton started over I the field in the direction of Briggs's I blacksmith shop, who I had ju6t under stood had been appointed superintendent 1 in my stead. After remaining probably J an hour, llilton returned, and with and I behind him some three or four more of the same sort as those stationed against 1 the stable wall; presently Mr. Brigjis j came also and entered the office; he tlun inlormed me that he had a Aumnunication for me, and handed me a letter; the Ill lowing is a copy: Cffice o* tee W. N. M. Society, ( March 9th, 1855, ) Mr. Wi Dougherty. Sib?At a meeting of board of man agers of the Washington National Monu merit Society lield this d%y, you iris fe? moved from the position ofsuptrintendcnt of the Washington National Monameat, and Mr. Samuel S. Briggs elected in vour place. Yoj arc instructed to deliver to your successor on receipt of this, the books, documents, and property of all kinds V longmg to the society'that may be in your possession. Vespasian- Ellis, 1st Vice President Chas. C.Tucker, Secy W. N. M. S. Alter reiding the above, I toid Mr. Briggs that I did not recogn ze the right of these parties to remove me; that T believed the board, under whom I was acting, to be the only legal board ; that tho?e claiming to be the new board had rccognized me as the superintendent, and my legal right to the possession of the property; that it was sufficient for sue to know that it was a disputed matter which of the two boards was the legal one, and until that dispute was settled, or the board under who^e authority I was acting should think proper to dis miss me, that I should retain possession, and the only way he could get clear of me was either by producing some au thority known to the law, or taking pos session by brute force. After remaining until 12 o clock, Mr. Briggs took his de parture. A short time after I stepped , out and called IJilton, and demanded tf him the keys ; he told me that he had not (hem. I asked him what he had done with them ; his answer was that the new bo*rd had sent for him. and he C"<ve 'hem to Mr Bradley. I then ordmd hiin toleave the premises, which he said he would do. After considerable equivocation, he told me he had a key that would unlock all the buildings, except my office and the engine house, and that there was a win dow in the engine house that he coold open. I got the key from him, and pro ceeded to unlock all the buildings and locked them up in his pre;-ence, and or dered him to open the engine house for me : he did so. I then went to the car penter shop, the key of which 1 had in my possession, and got a hammer and nails, and nailed up all the dcors of the buildings to which they had access, and direced him to tell tham what I had done, and li they broke them open that they did it at their peril. 1 then left the building. That evening, about dark, Frere came to my house, and told me that the buildings were all broken open : also his watch house, of which the key h*d never been out of his posses-ion, and that they had put other locks on : he stated that there were four or five strangei9 there, and when he told then: he had come to go on duty, they told I him that ho was not reco^niEcd as a watchman any longer. Hilton told him that there were to be six watchmen oa that night ?a portion of them of the police, and a portion of them tin auxiliary guard : that they were armed to the teeth, and I lat if he" attempted to exercire any authority, there would be blood spilled : he also told him that John T. Towers, the mayor of the city, had sent word for them to tell me that if 1 came over there and acted as a private citizen they would not molest me. but if 1 attempted to exercise any authority, or enter any of the buildings, he would have me arrested. Under these circumstance*, I d:rec'fd the watchman to go home that nigh'. a.s there could be no use in his exposing himself against that nural>er, but to g > there on bunday and keep an eye on tbuir movements. This morning I consulted two of the members of the board, who adv.sed me to go to ray po.-t as usual, and remain uuless force was used, and, if so, under no circumstances to make any further resistance than was neces sary to establish the fact, as they neither wished me .0 sustain any personal in jury, or to do anything which could be tortured into an act of aggression on my part. Accordingly, the night watch and myself went to the building about 10 o'clock, and found the office tilled with persons, among them Mr. Briggs, the captain of the day police, the captain of th(* Auxiliary Guard, and three police of ficers that 1 knew?whether any more were officers or not I cannot say?to gether with a crowd of probably twenty or thirty outstde of the door, of all sorts and sizes. After entering and taking a seat, 1 told them that I had received a message stating that the mayor intended having me arrested if I attempted to ex ercise any authority as superinte ident, I told them I was the superintendent of that building; all the property on the ground was in my charge; that. 1 was responsible to the board for its safe keeping ; that 1 intended, to exercise the control of the place, and that I would not suffer any one to interfere oi cxercise any authority, and that if they wanted to arrest me to do so. The captains of the police and guard both toll me that Mr. Towers had given them no orders at all; that Mr. Briggs had called this morn ing at the police office and told them that he had understood I was to come with a mob to the building at 10 o'clock to take possession. I replied that they could seo how much truth there was in*the re poit as I was there with no one but the night watch, and that I bad not come on the ground since this tiouble began with out finding from six to a dozen loafers hanging about ready for the chances. Mr. Briggs stated that he was the super intendent, and that he repeated every word I had stated in relation to the ex ercise t'f authority as such. I then re peated that the only way they could get clear of me would be to shew some legal authority or take possession by farce : that I would sooner see the matter seltled then than sutler it to go on. as 1 was cer tain it would end in bloodshed ; that 1 had positive orders this morning to make no further resistance than was necessary to constitute a forcible remoT^l, and if ihey thought proper to take hold of me and put me out 1 would go quietly, and report the facts to thofre fGr whom I was acting. After some delay it was pro posed to ae to postpone the matter until THE WEKKLX STA3L ?dafog a greator varVty ?T lali iiiHag Am em befbaad la?yo*?t-fc >ilB*il?a WmmH k^C??,m*uuii v fTMiW 0(7- ein?l? copiee (In wrapper*) caa W . at the counter, immediately WW the law ?f '*>* paper.

Afier some further delay, Mr. Briggs ordered me out. 1 refused. lie then took hold of me and pushed me out. According to my orders I made no fur ther resistance, but left the premisea. What further remains to be done is for you to say. The above is a fair and correct state ment of the matter to the best of my re collection. 1 he words may not be ex actly the same in some instances, but LDe substance is exactly what occurred.
