CHICAGO. "Aug. 11. Mr. Victor Rise
wster: I em pained to hear of the death
of your 'Tether, and sympathise most sin
cerely with you and the other members of
hla family. While nothing can atone for
the toes of a parent, yet it must lessen the
sting somewhat to know that everyone
who knew him haa. also sustained a Inu,
only lesser In degree than yours, and pri
portionate to the Intimacy of his acquaint- '
nnce with vour father.
As I witnessed the last stste convention (
I felt that death alone could bring to Mr.
Rosewater the honor thafwas his due. It
was a moment when the Ideas, to the advo
cacy of which he had devoted his life, were
triumphant In both atate and nation. Of
all men, no' one was entitled to more honor
In that hour,' but his opponents had bp
proprlatcd his Ideas, and made use of the
enmities he had created In fighting for the
cause to deprive him of the honor that at
tended the victory. "He had winged the
shaft that quivered In his heart.",-
Envy and malice ran follow him no
further. The hlstery of "the greatest re
form movement of modern times-will give
him the rredlt he earned. The people of
Omaha and Nebraska will now realise that
they have lost the most Indefatigable,
trustworthy and effective champion, and
will with one voice say aa did the poet of.
"Our Champion. whenTtthers we had none;
Our friend, when other friends were gone;
Feared by all knaves, beneath this sod
Bill Cobbett lies a man by Ood."
Slncerelr yours.

"1 will compute forty .years or Ufs in
Omaha on -Tuesday, September 4." said
-Major John B. Furay. "I knew Edward
Rosewater all that time, for jnumber ef
years Intimstely, snd later on a friendly
footing. It Is Interesting snd pathetic to
me to recall that Edward Rosewater was
the first man I met snd became acquainted
with after landing here.
"You eee, my regiment had been sta
tioned st Fort Laramie prior to .this snd
I scted a good,' deI of, the time' ss'aJO
tant. ' In this connection I signed msny
telegrams addressed to Colonel BapP. at
Omaha, then '-commanding the Departmenu
of the Platte. It seems that In the local
telegraph office Mr. Rosewater had be
came familiar with rrty name, ecause of
this correspondence. I came to Omaha On
'a steamboat, the City of Denver, from St.
Joseph, sfter being Tnuktered ont of the
army service, subseqaeht to the Indian cam
paigning. "I remember took us sev
eral weeks to make 'the Journejr en the
Missouri, swing; to ; the condition fit the
'river. Harry Deuel was clerk of the' boat,
which burned on the next trip. He was the
flpst Omaha man with whom I became
acquainted, but I met him before reaching
Omaha. 1
"After I reached Omaha my firs thought
was to telegraph relatives announcing my
safe arrival. , I ssked the way to the tele
graph office and found It. I wrote my
telegram and handed If over to ths opera
tor. The latter counted the words and
" 'Are you not the Major Fnray who has
been out west fighting the Indians?
"I said I waa and the operator told me
his name was Fid ward Rosewster and that
he knew' 'me by name and reputation
through the Interchange of military tele-'
grams. He shook hands with me and was
very friendly, snd that was how I came
to know him. His friendly reception meant
more to me than I can describe, for I was
a total stranger In Omaha and knew no
one here. It wa a time and occasion when
acquaintances . and friendship counted for
a good -deal -to me, and-I appreciated Mr.
Bosewater's kindly, attitude. .
' "For 'a number of years we were on
Intimate terms snd I . helped elect him to
a term In the legislature. , ,
"I remember distinctly that hla young
friends," Including myself, doubted ex
tremely the wisdom of his course In aband
oning his position with the telegraph com
pany to devote all his energy to The Bee.
A good Job was a sure thing, we figured,
snd prefersble to the uncertain venture
of stsrtlng a newspaper without great
financial backing 1n a neW town Snd in
the face of ' hsTdcornpetltlon. Of course
events proved to' everyone's' sstlsfactlon
that Mr. Rosewater had seised Just' the
right tlnie Snd opportunity for his venture.
He never Would have undertaken It or suc
ceeded were tt not for his Indomitable
energy and the fact' that he' never recog
nised defeat or knew when he was beaten."
The day afW, Mr. Rosewater's death the
flag., was run, upjjjalf way on tjie -staff ,of
Boyles'. Business college,.as on many other
buildinga of a private., character In the
city..,-, , s. ,. .,,,..,.. . .. , r .
"i did this merely as a mark of personal
respect and gratitude, tows jd . MfV Rose
water,", said, President H. 'b'. Boyles, In
speaking about It! . 'Ndt very rriany per
sons know thst Mr. Rosewster sided me In
the most substantial way tn starting my
school, and without solicitation on my part.
In 1897 I established the college In The
Bee building,' occupying a single room tt
which I paid lltBO a month rent. Business
was so light that even this amount was a
decided burden. I had one little old tpe
writer and a second-hand de"V. Mr. Roae
water observed the condition of things and
very soon offered to loan tne s room rent
free, so thst I might hsve at least a pri
vate" office apart -from ths- school room.
He did It In a quiet and wholly unostenta
tious manner.- Business grew better and I
rented: another room. - He loaned me an
other room for an ofncS and this process
kept up untlr 1 wss paying 8171 a month
rent, Mr. Roaewater then concluded I was
on my feet and the free room refit ceased.
I never forgot this kindness, for It came
at a time when I needed It the most.'?
Df. ' George. 1..' Miller, whose paper,' the
.Herald, and the. Republican were the only
two In the field when The Bee wae founded,
tells of ah incident to which he believes the
success of. tte "new paper (The Bee) de
pended. The Herald attd'-the 'Republican "were
both evening papers,, but . I had secretly
decided to make the Herald a morning
paper. I had Instructed my employes that
the fact we were to Change to the morning
field was not to be made public. A drunken
printer gsvs It swsy to ths Republican
and Major Balcombs'of that paper sur
prised us by changing ths Republican to
a morning paper n the very- day ws
changed. -' v . . . .
"If we bad been sensible, we would have
drawn straws to see who would issue a
morning and who an evening paper, thus
dUldlng the field between, us. but we didn't.
We left the evening field unoccupied and
Mr. Rosewater entered It with The Bee.
Considering the hard struggle he had with
out competition I do not believe he- could
have kepi the paper afloat If he had bad
'an 'evening paper to fight"
Mr ' Rosewater's oversight of details
which '.led him to make S tour of the Bee
building almost dally is Illustrated by a
typical Incident told by Judge Troup, who
was employe on The Bee during its esrly
life and who happened to be the dne to
discover Mr. Roeesrater's death.
"I can remember of his coming into ths
business offlos frequently after a hard
day's 'Work at his dsek and casting a
sweeping glance ground ths room. His sy
would catch perhaps a cobweb banging
frexn the celling. He would thrust, bis
Anger at it and sy . 'I wonder what the
Janitor means by letting things go like
that. I think ws will have to , have a
change. - However, (he threatened- change
was never made."
No matter- how efficient the manager of
a department might be, Mr, Rosewater
found time among all his other duties to
keep sa eye on ths details . '
. - . ' -
The struggles of Ths Bee to keep from
being overwhelmed by financial difficulties
during the lata '70a, Just before the stock
company wae organised, are shown by ad
other Incident related by Judge' Troup.
"One dsy, a few minute before time for
the banks to close, ws found aa obligation
very large for the paper at that time waa
due. Every resource the people la the' bus
iness office hsd wss exhausted snd still
there was a considerable amount unpro
vided for. It waa a case thst had to be
.mtt snd I was sent out to flndMr.vRoae
water. who was sot la his office. . found
him bet ween, Tenth and Eleventh oa Far
nam, which at. that time wa the center
of the buatnea district, and related the
bul6s office troubles to him. Mr. Rose
wster shrugged his shoulders' and thrust
his thumb and finger down Into his. vest
pocket and pulled out a nickel.
-of course, fhat lsn' very much, ha
said, holding It up. '
"With his usual resourt aYulnesa, how- N
ever, the money was raised and the crisis 1
tided over."
S. 8. Teters, a .member of the editorial
staff of Ths Bee snd a civil war veteran,
relates thla from his knowledge of affairs: -
"It waa a cherished hope of Mr. Rosewater
that he might become either a regular or
honorary member" of the Grand Army of
the Republic. However, the rulea of the
Grand Army confines It membership Ir
revocably to the men mho actually served
In the military or naval branch .of the '
service during the civil war snd who wets
honorably discharged therefrom. Mr. .
Rosewater belnnred tn (ha Miiii.rv tl. '.
grapher. which wss a civil rather than t
a military Branch of the government.
"While the military telegraphers did not
wear the uniform of a soldier, nor wert.'
they as strictly smennble to military rules
aa the -soldlera, yet their service wal
oftentimes even rnore dangerous than
those who were In actual line of battle. '
Thla was particularly true of the campaign ,
In front of Petersburg In the summer of1;
1M, In -which campaign Mr. Rosewater was
engaged, and he was frequently In the most .
perilous positions, becsuse of the deternv '
Inatlon of confederate" raiding parties 1 '"
destroy communications of all kinds. There
was a veritable net . w.ork of telegraph i,
wires from City Point, where General i-;
Grant's headquarters were located, upou .
both aide of jhe-Appomattox, to Bermud
nundreda and Point of Rocks, the base ol .
operations against Petersburg. It was. tr
this csmpalgn that Mr. Roaewater rend-
ered very effective service as a military
telegrapher, which threw him In constant -personal
communication with Generals
Grant. Meade, Butler. Hancock. Sheridan.
Butler. Ksuts and a host of others.
"Only a short while sgo Mr. Rosewster
snd I were discussing, that campaign snd
he showed a remarkable memory of tb
events In front of Petersburg In whlcH
for a few weeks General B. F. Butler wag' '
bottled up' most effectively, as Jocosely
ststed by General Grant and to whose re ,
lief Grant hsd to come later tn the summer.'
" "A funny thing happened Just upon he
arrival of General Grant at Petersburg.'
said Mr. Rosewster, 'that gave a strong
Insight Into the extreme coolness of Gen
eral Grant under the most trying clrcum
stsnces. A large lookout or signal station
hsd been erected at Point of Rocks, that
was probably sixty or more feet In
height. From the top of this ststlon wa
could signal to Fort Pnwhattan, City-'
Point, and acroas the.Jamee river toward
Harrleon's Landing. The lookout was In
full slew of Petersburg, snd the confed
erates used the lookout regularly as a
target. Being an open trestle work af
fair, the little slx-pounder. . percussion
shells that they fired st the lookout eel- '
dow struck It. As tho top of the "erow'a
nest," ss It was called, gave a good view
of Petersburg and the confederate en
trenchments, Gt nersl Butler suggested to
General Grant that they go up on top of
the lookout and take a look around. Tha
lookout could be easily ascended by a '
ladder, so Generals Grant, Meade, Han
cock, Butler, Warren and some of their
staff a climbed up to the top of the con.
cern t6 see things. 1
" 'Several of the officers were In bril
liant uniforms and the confederates with
the sld of glasses soon discovered that
there was something more than ordinary
on "crow's nest" and they began firing at
It briskly. The little shells whistled close
about the heads of the generals, but not
striking arty object failed to explode, .
until one struck one of the braces of tha
lookout about twenty feet below the oftK
cars and exploded, Fortunately- no great ,
damage resulted, nor was any of the fen-. '
erals Injured. .....
".'It waa funny to, see- the dignified genv,',
era I skurrying to get out of that look-'.
out, . They came down very unaranfuliv.
but all managed to reach tbe .'ground
sareiy. General Grant was ths Isat man .
down out of the lookout and he descended '
slowly snd deliberately, and would not .
leave the platferm at. the top until all .
ot his associates were safelr down and
out of harm's wsy.' " t
