T , January 31. The special
railroad committee room waa more
than usually crowded yesterday after *
noon showing that the interest in this
Important Investigation is unabated.
Mr. Galoy called for Mr. Edward
Rosewater , editor of THE BEK , and
a discussion aroae as to whether he
should ba allowed to testify there or
wait until after witnesses from Omaha
hod been examined. The committee
finally decided to heai Mr. Rosewater
Mr. Roaiiwator being duly sworn
testified as follows :
Question. Mr , Rotowater yon may
tate all the facts you know in relation
to what connection if any THE OMA
HA BIK hua to the U. P. R. R. Co. , or
ever had , and what Interest the U. P.
R. R. Co. , ever had in TUB BEE ?
Answer. Well , I have to state that
neither the U. P. R. R nor any cor
poration excepting Tun BEE Publish
Ing Co. , have ever had any interest In
TUB OMAHA BEE , or ever owned any
share of stock in It. If the commit
tee permits 1 will give my version con
cerning the teatimony given here by
Ms. Kimball as to my relation to th
U. P. and the alleged attempt to con
trol THK BEK by that corporation or
by Mr. Jay Gould.
Mr. Galey. Go on and state all
the facts.
Mr. Rosewater : Well I think U
wan Borne time after the election of
Senator Sannderi. In the summer of
1877 , that' Senator Paddock , while I
waa at Washington , came to me and
made mo the proposition that I should
be the managing editor of the Na
tional Republican. He stated that
Mr. Gould thought that I was a tal
ented man , competent to manage a
newspaper , and that I could fiud a
much batter field at Washington thar
I had in Nebraska. I told him that I
appreciated the compliment , but
knew that I could fight on my own
dung hill a good dual bettor than 1
could there , and I'did not think it
waj host that I should outer into ne
gotiations. It waa some time af ier , I
think in the winter of ' 78 , or the firs *
part of ' 78 , Senators Paddock aad
Saunders , while I waa at Waahiutfto
cauio to mo and said that In their
opinion it was a very important matter
tor that fie tvo republican dalliei in
Omaha should be consolidated ; that
thera was a constant light going 01
tbore , ana that BO long as that con
tinned there would ba
I said I was willing , if the proper
negotiations were made , and I waa lift
In control. Senator Saunders said
that he understood that a ptrt of Tlie
Omaha Ropnbllcan waa owned by the
Union Pacific , and he wanted ine to
go on to Now York to find out what
arrangements could be made. I waa
the sole owner of TUE BEE at that
time , and The Republican waa owned
by the Tribune company. Ij went to
New York a few days later , and while
at the Aator house Mr. Saundera came
to me aud said that ho had soon Mr ,
Gould and they were disposed to part k
with their interest in The Republican ;
that ho wanted me to go to Union
Pacific headquarters and ace what
could bo done. I wont with him , and
Mr. Gould said they did not own the
entire controlling interest. He
thought Inasmuch as the newspaper
war In Omaha was a losing game that
all parties interested in the papers
would bo benefitted by a conaolld.i
tian , BO tint they could earn money
Instead of losing money , and ho BUS- ;
Boated that a stock company should be
formed , in which Tar BKR and the
owners of The Republican should owr
about two-thirds , and a third part ;
should be found in duo time wh (
would hold tha balance cf power , b <
that neither party would control it t
I stated that I had never tjlven such i
matter consideration , and that I woul <
go home and look about aud find ou
whether tuch a thing wan feasible
Mr. Gould also stated that It would b
understood that the entire force c
The Ropnbllcan should badiaml se
\ and nobody but Mr. Brooks should b
retained , I should have
of the concern , and I insisted that
bo loft entirely free to continue tt
polisy I was pursuing ; that thoi
should be no change in that if at
arrangement waa made. After I gi :
homo. I received a letter from Sonati
Baunders , saying if I would call c
Mr. Kimball I could got iufornntk
of the relative standing of each sloe
holder in The Republican , and furthe
us my relations with Senator Hitc
cock , who had a largo share 'lu tl
concern , were not very friendly ,
was not desired that I should have d
rect oommunloition with him. Be
went over and gave Mr. Kimball the
Information ho wanted , that is , as to
the liabilities of JHE BEE , its TO-
sources and cenurM infnrmilhn aft to
the circulation , it3 I should nU.a
that I think the first or second
Interview wo hud four or five. I had
looked the matter over and rei\oliod
the conclusion that if 1 over allowed
third party to have control , that la
tb have the balance of power , n time
might arise when that party would
take awny from ino the control of the
paper. I then wrote to Senator Saunders >
dors that I would not enter into any
arrangement whereby the control of
TUB BEE should paas out of my hands.
Thereabouts the matter ended.
I went to work then ( this Idea of a
stock company never before got into
my head ) and organized a stock com
pany mynelf. I raised $10,000 where
by I was able to pay off the debt on
the paper and building , and place it
on a paid up footing. My brothers
were the principal creditors , and they
took their pay in stock. No stock
wai over given to any railroad com
pany , and none was solicited by THE.
BEE That was iho end of the nego
tiations BO far as I know.
in the matter I would also state. Before -
fore wo rot through , Mr. Kimball said
that the ability to get the stock of Mr.
Hitchcock depended upon my consent
to allow him ( Hitchcock ) to bo ap
pointed commissioner general to the
Paris exposition an appointment that
was then pending , K I gave my con
sent , and would not oppose it , Mr.
Hitchcock would part with his stock.
I Bald I would not do it. I sent my
protest to the preaidont , who had al
ready consented , on the advice of
both senators , ind the appointment
was cancelled ; and for that reason
Mr. Hitchouck refused to part with
his stock. That ends that part of it.
Now I will answer Mr. Kimball'i alle
gations In
or the $1,000 blackmail. In the
spring of 1876 a very active effort was
being made In our county to aid in the
construction of what was known as the
Omaha & Republican Valley narrow
gauge railroad. A company had been
organized by a number of our citizens
and a proposition to issue county
bonds Waa pending which all the
Omaha dailies advocated. A few
days before the commissioners
Issued their proclamation Mr.
Kimball came to my office in
TUB BEE building and said
"I will give you $500 if yon will In
duce the commission not to itano that
proclamation. "
I said , "Mr. Kimball , it cannot be
done oven if I waa willing to do it. I
am already committed to that propu
attlon and cannot recede. "
Next day , however , the two. other
papers changed their policy and the
Omaha Herald a few days later came
out with
in which he said , "If yon dare to give
aid to the narrow gauge railroad wo
will move the Union Pacific shops
from Omaha. " In that fight the
forces Of the U. P. opposed the nar
row gauge bonds and they were aided
by a number of federal officers under
the leadership ot Mr. Hitchcock.
The bonds curled In 'the city of
Omaha but In the country precincts
they were defeated. Prevloui
to that conteat In the month oi
January , I thinly Mr. A. D.
Clarke , the purchasing agon !
of the U. P. , stated that they
had decided to do their job printing
by the year and they wanted ns to
compete on a largo amount of job
printing to be done during the year
A list of different blanks with do
Bcriptlou samples , etc. , wore fur-
ulshud and bida were made upon
them. A few days after that Mr.
Clark returned the bids and stated
that they weru too high bat that il
wo would accept Chicago rates with
ten per cent added on number ol
blaik thut were th > rj ho wouli hayo
the work do no In Omiha. Up to thil
time no discrimination was made.
Trie throp papcra were given job
work onoid\ ]
amounting to $5,400 or $5,000 , I do
not roinembor the exact amount. Wo
took the order of Mr. Clark A part
of that work was done ; about $300
worth. After the narrow gauge fight
the railroad company withdrew all
printing from THE BEE. And then
came the uenatorial fight. Wo kept
up a very brisk tire all along the line
until after the election. About the
1st of December I went over to Mr.
S. H. H. Clark , the general manager ,
and told him that I was ready to carry
out the contract ; that we had the ma
terial for the work on hand , and that
there were still thirty days left to carry
It out. Mr. Clark upbraided me for
my war on theU. P. , aud talked about
our fight on Mr Hitchcock. I a aid
that I had nothing to do with the mat-
ter ; that this was a plain matter of
business. As ho did not aeura in a
pleasant frame of mind , I said I would
call again. After Hitchcock was de
feated and S lunders elected I called
again , and Mr. Clark said I had made
such bitter warfare that ho did not be-
liuvo that I could get that printing ,
and that I had abused Jay Gould , nnd
it would not do for him to give ua any
inoro work.
"Shortly before the inauguration ol
Hayes I went to Washington , and the
llrat day upon my arrival , when I got
into the rotunda of the Capitol , I wae
slttppod ou the shoulder in a very
friendly way , and on looking around 1
saw Mr. Sidney Dillon. Ho said
a glad to BOO you , " Ac. I wai vorj
d much eurprised at his familiar way
it Ho went on to cay he would like t <
. have a talk with me. I said , you on
a.of talk with mo 'right here. Mr. Dllloi
of said that they were tired tf the war
id fare in Nebraska and they though
bo I hat the thing had been mismanage' '
and a good deal of war htirred up thu
was damaging , and that they woali
like to drop the fight. I said , "Mi

to bo ou good tnttus with us. I as
sured him that there was no disposi
tion to continue the war if the com
pany wouli only treat our people fairly -
ly and atop meddling in politics. Then
I talked over my printing claim and
told him that Mr. Clark had refused
to carry out the contract because I had
abused Mr. Gould Gen. Dodge said
if I would come to Now York after the
sixth of March. A day or two after
the inauguration of Hayrs I went to
New York and called at the head
quarters of the Union Pacific. Mr.
Gould and Mr. Dillon were both
thoro. Mr. Dillon , in talking about
the contest in Ntbraaka , wanted to
know why I waa making personal as
saults on Mr. Gould. I replied :
"Because Mr , Gould's name served
mo much better than yours. Ho Is
notorious as a manipulator of legisla
tors and congressmen. I made U40 of
his name for that purpose. You wont
hto this fight and must take the con
sequences. " Mr. Gould said that ho
did not care about newspaper assaults ;
that Dana , In the New York Sun ,
gave him a column a day. Ho was
anxious that
and promised to put a stop to politi
cal interference. I then brought up
the printing contract. Both Gould
and Dillon Bald they would order Mr.
Clark to fulfil the contract
About two months later Gould and
Dillon came to Omaha : As nothing
had been done about the printing I
called at the headquarters , which was
then at the Wyoming house , and sent
up my card to Gould and Dillon , I
was admitted into the office and met
Gould , Dillon and S. H. H. Clark in
the room. As I entered Mr. Dillon
opened up by saying , "Well , sir you
have called us
and every other moan name you dm
think of , and now yon come here ask
ing us a favor.
1 turned around and said , "Mr.
Dillon 1 am not here to ask any favor.
You have given your word at Wash
ington that you wanted to quit this
political business. There has boon no
cessation of hostilities and if this war
continues it will bo a great deal
warmer. "
"Well , " said Dillon , "wo don't
want to have anything to do with you
anless you show some spirit of repentance
ance ,
I retorted , "I told yon In New
York , and I repeat it now , that I believed
lioved that I was right and have
nothing to repent of , and that If I had
to fight this battle over again I would
do just as I have done In defense of
the people. Yon have made yonreell
a party in a political campaign and wo
have treated your road as a political
enemy. " Mr. Dillon Balcf , "Wo
don't care about yon ; we can get Mr.
Sanndera. "
I replied , "Yon may get him ,
but If you do I will turn the guns anc
make the war hotter than ever I have
made It. "
Mr. Gould then said , "As you aaj
you have come purely on business . '
will turn your claim over to Mr
Clark , who will settle the matter. "
Before and after this Interview
there was Interference by Dr.
Miller and P. W. Hitchcock.
Of course what printing came
to me could not tro to the Herald and
Republican and they were trying to
beat ns out of the work. The
matter rested about a month or
six weeks , I don't know exactly
how lonp. Then I went and
employed G. W. Djauo and J. L.
Wobater to bring suit , and papers were
drawn up. I also called on Mr. Pop-
pletou and asked him tojintercodo for
a settlement. I niud I did not want
to go into a suit with a great corpora
tion. Poppleton aald , "I concede yon

A few days later Senator Sanndora
