turn It over to the Union Pacific company
because of its coal bearing value. I had
a conference also with Judge Kelly of
the Union Pacific on this same matter of
the Abbott and the deal was finally
consummated and land was turned over to
the Union Pacific and the papers delivered
to Judge Kelly. The title to the property
was made In the name of Erastus Young,
the consideration being $13,200, which was
paid by the treasurer of the Union Pacific
Railroad company. I was nol obliged to
pay Abbott any more for the land than he
received from the railroad company, but
a fair valuation of the land at. that time
to the Union Pacific people was from $50,000
to $100,000. The acquiring of this Abbott
land was suggested to Saunders aa a
friendly act."
" Origin of the Case.
The Sioux City Ac Rock Springs Coal com
pany had as stated by Mr, Saunders a
suit against .the Union . Pacifio Railroad
company for $00,000 damages for failure to
furnish It railway facilities for getting its
coat to market. . ..
The formal demand of the complainant
company was read In evidence and calls
for not only trackage facilities, but for. a
depot and telegraph service. This demand
wss made October 6, 1906. The reply of
Julius Krtitschnltt, director of maintenance
of the Union Pacific Railroad company,
also was read In which he gave reasons
why the petition of the complainants could
not be granted, this reply beating date, of
October 17, 1906.' These letters were writ
ten after the .Abbott land transaction.
The -witness , was not cross-examined by
Mr. Baldwin.
Megeatb the Mtaad.
O.- Wi Megeatht president of the Sheridan
Coal company, and general manager of the
Union Pacific Coal company from IK) to
1891!. told of his purchase of .the properties
of the Van, Dyke. Rock Springe A' Sweet
water Coal , cotnpany ' properties at Rock
Springs, . and . that they, were ostensibly
bought for the' Union' Pacific Coat; com
pany. This' purchase was msde during, the
receivership of the Union Pacific' and the
witness held- onto the oroperty until after
the reorganisation. Witness paid JJSO.000
for the Sweetwater, $15Q.0nO for the Rock
Springs and $00,000 for ths Van Dyke mines.
He operated the mines at a profit for about
five yeara for the . company. -The mines
were sold In 1901 to the Central Coal and
Coke company of Kansas City, Mo. , ,
DlcklsMa net la DeaL
In the continuation of his evidence Mr.'
Megeath stated that Ed. Dickinson was
general manager of the Union Pacific Rail
way company during the time that the wit
ness was In charge of the Union Pacific
Coa' company's Interests, but that - Mr.
Dickinson was not interested In ths pur-'
chase of the coal company In any manner..
The purchase of these, independent -companies
by Mr. Megeath was ostensibly In
ths interest of the Union Pacific Coal com
pany sod railway and was devised as the
only way . to wipe out competition in the
coal business as arrayed against the Union
Pacific. The, Union Pacific at this time Con
trolled the coal mines at Hanna and ,ex
acted a differential- rate of 26 to SO cents
per ton' In hauling against the Rock
Springs 'companies In favor. .. of - the
Hanna mines. The price on tlie.ooal rate
was raised, but Jh selling price was low
ered. The effect waa to atop the Shjpment
of coal from the Rock Springs district by
the Independent companies and ultimately
resulted In ths change of ownership of
these properties. At this time about 40
per cent of the shipments'1 from -tlte Rock
Springs Independent properties waa over

Proflte.Baln to Ororr.
After, the.. witness took, over the man
agement' of the. Independent companies at
Rock Springs the profits began to increase
and the coal from these mlnea waa ' sold
all the way" from the Missouri river to
the Pacific coast. The ' arranged
a pool or combination of tte several coal
companlea at Salt Lake, the general pur
pose of which was to sell .coal for cash.
J. E. Markel represented the Union Pa
cific Coal company at Salt Lake City at
that time. Mr. Megeath stated further,
that the pool continued as long as be
managed the Union' Pacific Coal company,
but that It went to pieces after his re
tirement from the management, but he
did not know why. J
Mr. Megeath said at the present time
he Is not a member of any coal assocla
tlon In Omaha. The present output ot
the Sheridan Coal company, of which he
Is president, was about 4,000 tons per
day and the rata on one mine was $2.75
per ton to Omaha! He did not know
what the preeent rate was. from Rock
Springs, but the haul from Rock Springs
was further than from Sheridan. . There
were two other mines at Sheridan at
present, whose output waa much less than
witness' company. The companies were
able to get all the cara they needed and
were required to shut down only four or'
Ave daya during the winter front ,' the
shortsge of csrs. The rate of wages and
material Is higher than at Rock Springs.
The hauling rate la 60 cents lower la ten
than In five car lots. He believed that the
rate' from Rock Springs at present
was 7$ cents In ten car lots.
Nothing; Dolnar for Browa;
Randall Wi Brown, manager of the
Omaha Coal company, testified that he:
owned , certain mines at Hanna, -; Wyp.,
and one In Iowa and Missouri. - iUs mi dm
at) Hanna are about" el mires- west- wf
fhat place. The Uniorl Pacific Coal , com
pany also owns mines at that place, Ths
witness' mines are about -half a mile from
the main line of the' Union , Pacific, and
extend .up to within a few feet of the
Union Pacific, Witness acquired these
coal lands about eight years ago for the
purpose of opening the mines and had
applied to the Union Pacific for transpor
tation facilities in 190S. . General Marr
ager Mohler of the Union Pacific had
assured witness that these facilities would
be afforded. The matter was . subse
quently referred to D. O. Clark, general
manager of the Union Pacific Coal com
pany, and thus far nothing had been done,
notwithstanding that Mr-. Brown offered
to build the track and pay for it. in te
meanwhile the Union Pacific had -built
a .spur along ths property of ' the wit
ness and refused to permit hie. witness'
company to cross the Union Pacific tracks,
As a result, the witness ssys, he is Unable
to reach his mines by rail. He had made
three demands for . track facilities, 'we
to Mr. Mohler and one to Mr, Clark, witrt
out result. . , : , ;
There Is a good market for eoal In that
vicinity, and for the product of witness'
mines, which Is In all respects similar to
the product of the mines owned by the
Union Pacific Coal company In the' Im
mediate locality, being a part of the same
vein. ; , . J
' Powers that Be aad Are.
Witness asserted to his knowledge the
Central Coal and Coke company and Union
Pact fie Coal company controlled all the
coal landa in the Union Pacific coal coun
try. The Union Pacific Coal company had
also opened up Its mines after the wit
ness had bought the property near Hanna.'
It was the, rule of the Union Pacific Coal
company to sell coal only In ten car lots
at $3.76 only to Omaha, South . Omalia,
Lincoln and Council Bluffs, but elsewhere
out In the stats the price was $4 or
$4.60.' These ten car lots meet all be
billed at one time. Witness ouys hie

Coal company. When we cannot get Rock
Springs we buy Kemmerer coal, which :s

sate la from ti to $3.75 The witness
figured the profit on Rock' Springs at from
6 to $ cents, and pay $8 cents on mtnj
run and $1.60 on select. Witness belongs
to the Iowa and Nebraska Coal 1 balers' as.
soclation. The association, he says, is not
a trust, but is organized simply, for the
purpose of demanding the adjuetment of
short weights and other railroad abases.

Auditor Erastus Young of the Harriman
lines was recalled and gave additional
testimony regarding the purchase of the
A. T. Abbott quarter, northwest ' of sec

ferred to the witness as trustee by D. O.
Clark. The deed was never placed on
file but was cancelled and destroyed.. He
did not know why the deed was destroyed.
The property was paid for In two checks,
one for $10,000 and one for $3,200 payable
to Warwick Saunders. They were Union
Pacific railroad checks and were paid on
a Union Pacific Coal company voucher.
He knew of no copy of the deed, being
kept, but there was a copy of the voucher.
He said bs did not know why the deel

Saunders. The payment was made on
the authority of the prealdent of the
railroad company. The witness then; pro

.These lands were all procured-at differ

The Superior Coal cornpany pays the taxes
on these lands as an Individual.
"I ask how much the tax Is on a cer

plied the witness, "and so far aa the state
of Wyoming Is concerned the title to the
lsnds is still in the possession of the gov

and that of the llanos mines 8,000 tons

did not mine more coal was because of
the shortage pt ort s.nd transportation.
Reasons for. Refasal.
" Relative tcvhls objection to fip-rilshtne
transportation fymhes or . the .Sioux
City & Rock' Sflrfflga'-'Coal .company, he
said; 4,It Is because .their coal was .in
ferior to 6ufcoal and we did pot want it
put out lii competition with Rock Springs
coal, and we feared ;il would come Into
the market and affect prices. The reason
we desired to acquire 'the Abbot property
was that It was' in" a" strategic position,
between xftif- mines'" arid tfte Sioux City
company's property, and for the 'further
reason that we did not want that coal
on the market as -Rock Springs coat It
' was not done' te suppress competition.
We have not undertaken to discourage In
dependent ..companies,''. The Union" Pacific
Coal company la bonded for $5,000.00 and
the Union .Pacific Railway comnanv owna
the bonds. . The . Union Pacific Railway
company pays ue $1.41 for locomotive
coal. .We ship ao ooal-to Omaha but at
the ten car lot rates.. We have recently
acquired property in tha vicinity of the
Sioux pity and Rock Springs lands be
cause we thought H, was a good proposi
tion, and may possibly prevent ths Sioux
City people from getting to the railroad.
Thla property ws acquired from the
Union Pacific Railway company.- We do
not Intend to let the Sioux City company
put Its coal onto. the., market a Rock
Springs coal If we can help It. This Is
our only objection to them. We object to
this company crossing over our lands to
get to the rail road. 1 Some of this land
-ws purchased with soldiers' scrip at I2.1H)
per acre as soldiers' . additional - home
steads." .
Mr. Baldwin objected to going into tne
question. of acquiring litre to these lands,
as this .mattar had already been threshed
over before the land office.-in which the
Sioux City company was beaten out. and
It sbould not be Inquired Into here. Said
Mr. Baldwin,:
"No human being on earth can obtain
title, tp government .land by strict and
technical compliance with the land laws."
Marrhaaa Chargea Freed.
Mr." Marchand replied wtth some spirit:
."We proposs to' show that these lands
were acquired by fraud, and that some of
your wltuesses havs already admitted that
fraud." ( .'.. .
Mr. Baldwin replied "Thla new act may
place a new light upon the methods of
acquiring these lands."
.Mr. Clark, continuing his testimony,
said: "W. I.- Gibbon had been Instructed
to file four declaratory statements on
lands in Horse Creek canon. If there was
any expense for the filings I authorised
the payment The development work In
Horee Creek canon was already begun. A
quarter session -of land in this canon waa
bought of Frank Brtggs of Denver and
was paid . for In ths same wsy as the
other lands. ,; I. do not know' who did the
development work In Horse Creek canon."

He -had no objection to his mining Hanna
coal, but he did object to his running a
track through the Union Pacifio yards, as
there-was no place for such a track in

audience. Though the night was bad, ths

Mr. Brown with them and turned, out well.
Mr. Brown In his speech of an hour or
more explained to the people the railroad
tariff question, shewing very plainly where
there Is so much excessive charges going
on on the part of the railroads, and thst
the tlms has come when It Is up to. the
people to stand tip fqr-tbeir tights and get
the rates reduced to where they should be.
That It Is not the man that the people were
to vote for, but for the measures and poli

every year, since 104 to get their -taxes

It now Jooks as though the many thou
sands of -acres of land suitable for farm
ing purposes now lying Idle as a result of
the - f set - that eastern people have been
unaware of the conditions here will In a
short time be utilised. Mammoth crops
have been grown In this section recently
and many eastern buyers are turning their
attention this way and dosens are Invest
ing. While soms of these are speculators
with aa eye to a good proposition, many
are bona fide farmers who are weary of
paying exorbitant rents and desire to build
homes of their own. The Klnkaid home
stead act caused a large number of people
to locate In - this vicinity and aa a rule
they are going Into dairy farming In a
manner that augurs Well for their future
prosperity. This homestead act also had
ths effect of bringing many easterners Into
the country and thus become acquainted
with real conditions, arid many of these
have bought lands with a view to making
their homes here. Dosens of land-aeekers
are seen about the country each week and
something akin to a land boom la on. Land
which a short time ago was regarded aa
worth from $8 to $6 an acre cannot now be
secured for less than $10. A deal Is on
whereby a man who two years ago pur
chased a Urge tract not far from here is
to dispose of It at a profit of nearly $17,000.
It Is conceded thst within two or three
yeara more the population will be doubled
In this section.
