Bir. . ,
Q. I would like for you 'to state to
the committee who or what other par
ties were down hero in the orrploy of
the Union Pacific railroad during that

parties , I think , during Bomo portion
of the farm.
Q. Who were they ? A. I don't remember -

" 'What was Horace Newman's
particular businees hen. ? A. i think
Horace Newman was hero watching
'course of legislation and endeavnr
to talk to members of the logisla-

net Curing the discussion.
Q. Waa he hero for the same pur-
poaa as the balance were to ceo thai
norailroad laws were enacted , A ,
Mr. fllobberts , the railroad -company
thought it very poor policy both for

road legislation that was thor
'ending ' before this legislature should
o enacted and every man who had
riondo among the members .of the
legislature and who could talk and
have influence with them .1 got to

Q. Did you look to Cams as n
