Mr. Roeewater was a most unique and potent aingle factor in the life ot.hls city and state; and, now that he hat gone, hit In dustry, Itt results; his example, Ita influ ence; his genls, Ita Inspiration; hla Ideals, their memory; they remain, the richest, the most priceless heritage of the men end the women that are left to survive lilm. I bolleve that the world Is better because Edward Roaewater lived; beenu he wat a part ot the world, an active, moving, aggressive part. He fought Its great bat tlee and he fought them In the open nd they were real battles, too. Kdwsid Rose water did not know how to tight a sham be' tie. Pretense was a stranger to htm and to his chsraeter. My friends, It doet not matter to much what a man says he believes, but It doet mstter much what hit belief actually Is. And there never was any doubt In the mind of the public about what the beliefs and the convictions of yonder Man were; end, measured by this the eupremest test of a man's character sincerity Edward Roee water stood pre-eminent, the topmost man amongst a million. But. friends, the trait of this man character about which the 'least has been said and written, and that which first drew me irresistibly toward him, wat his sympathy for the, young man struggling In this life. Perhtpt all of you don't know It, but the young fellow out yonder In the world, lighting ror existence, hun gert and yearns for the encouragement and sympathy of men like him, who hnd already Worf the battle of life. I never went to thla man disheartened and- dis couraged that he did not give me hope. His-face waa always bright with courage. With him the word was always forward, and upward. Personally thla man had been my best friend for yeare, and my best friend this year of all the friends I had. 1 saw him the day be let for his Journey to the old world. He talked over all those mat ters that liav been mentioned here. There never has been a personal contest between that man and tne. 1 have testi fied In public to his superior ability and qualifications, and I believe his sinccri'y wss the brightest trait of his character. My friends, I am mourning him aa you. his personal friends, mourn nlm, and If I were to pay a single tribute to this man, if I were permitted to lay but one flower upon his casket. It would be a flower which is deecrlbed In verse: He had a warm, kind heart, snd.he had a helping hand for the young men In this world. .

"I have been sitting In drafts all my life; that won t hurt me. I said, "How are you feeling' now; you look rested."

It wa the fitting way.' 1 Mint up Into this build ing and Inquired about him in the omce, and they said hit body still rest In Judge Trtiup't court room. I went MP on the elevator and went Into- the court room. I taw him teated In tne tar corner on a bench in a posture that I had seen him take twenty times, -Hla head wua retting lightly on the radiator; hla hand waa resting upon hla knee. There waa a smile upon hla face. His eyes and II pa were closed, and I felt that death'a icy hand had touched the heart and the pulsation stop ped, and! the smile upon his face indicated that he heard the call: "Come unto me thou weary one and 1 will give tnee rest."

Mr. President and Fellow Cltiaens: I deem it a exeat tirivlles-e to have the op portunity to sua a tew woraa to wnat naa already been aald by way of tribute to the memory of Kdward Roaewater. It waa not my fortune to have been Intimately associated with him la any undertaking or to meet nun in aany contact, as some oi the sneakers here, but 1 have known him personally for the last twehty-nve years. ana i nuns iww nun i'"i wan. have been a constant reader of The Dally bee for more than that length of time anit tn thia wav have trained an, estimate. satisfactory to myself, of his character, his turns ana bis purposes as an runur. utn that I could say would almply be a repe tition of what baa already been ao well uiH hv Dr. Miller and other speakers, and 1 will not atiem.st to repeat. In substance, the tributes that have already been ut tered In your preaenoe. We ail recognise that he was a strong character and It Is ears to say that no other personage In the state of Nebraska in the last tiifrty-flv yeare. haa nad so much to do In tftvluing iha inouihl of the people of this great state, on publio queatlona that have been under discussion, and I think it Is sat also to say, and that you will all agree with me, that hla effort has ever been In the Interest of good government. The atat of Nebraska and the city of Omaha In hi death ha loat a friend which It will be bard to replace. . , , Like all men wh hav occupied poel tion at th head ot great newapapers. he haa had hi conteete. and in the Ughta which necessarily were waged he lia flven and ha received hard blowa. But waa pleased to bear Dr. Miller speak of him In the terme which he did and in way which I believe all those present, as well aa those absent, who knew him. will approve an aay la true. Hla career, as has fitly been eaid, la an inspiration to young men. Coming here strange boy in a strange land, without money,- without Influence, without position what have been his achievement? Whatever he un dertook he did it thoroughly, be did It well; and against opposition and under adrse circumstances he founded and built up a metropolitan newspaper, whose Influence has long been felt andwlll long be felt In the future, not only In the ttaie of Nebraska, but throughout many of our states. - He was a potent factor and In fluence wherever he waa known. It was a cherished ambition ef hie to become L'nlt4 btais euaiori tola is a a laudabl ambition, and bad It been gratified h would moat certainly have been .one ef the few leedlng men of hie party to mold th sentiments and lay the plant of Itt j future activity. It wat my fortune to 6 present with him In th contett lately closed at Lin coln, end shortly after the final reeult wae reached I htd a eonversatlon with him and know how he felt upon the re sult. , There waa a . note of disappoint ment in his talk, but no word of rancor or bittemesa. On the contrary, ae hat been said, he manlfeeted a spirit all would do well to emulate. In addltfdn to meeting him In the way that I have aald f also knew Edward Roaewater In another and different ca pacity. He wa a prominent Meson, and aa such I have met him In lodge on many occasions. He wae a member of the Veteran Association of Free Masons, and I well remember the talk that he gave us at our lart annual meeting. He was then apparently In vigorous health. No one who heard him would hav se lected htm as the flrst to go. But his ambitions, his aspirations. Jill labors and hla hope are over; he He before tit. There la, very much that we can gain of good frbtri hie memory and from the consideration of what h hat been to this community and to thle tato.
