In 1903 the Gould lines determined to enter this Pacific territory.
With Tweed, Gould was cartooned by Nast in 1869.
The management of the road under his control, and especially the sale of $5,000,000 of fraudulent stock in 1868-1870, led to litigation begun by English bondholders, and Gould was forced out of the company in March 1872 and compelled to restore securities valued at about $7,500, 0 00.
In October 1871 Gould was the chief bondsman of Tweed when the latter was held in $1,000,000 bail.
Gould gained control of the Union Pacific, from which in 1883 he withdrew after realizing a large profit.
