Itlalne. lie said the tall elections wero

An exposure oi the transaction jttstat
that time, would bo sure to defeat him.
With that I withdrew Iho motion. Sub
sequently. I took J. ii. Millard, ot Oma
ha, who was and still remains a govern
ment director, to .Mr. Rollins, and In ids
presence asked .Mr. Rollins if I under
stood lilui correctly in relation to the
bond transaction Involving Mr.

and that an investigation would bo
sure to kill oil' Mr. ltlaluo at the ap
proaching election. Afterwards, when
tlio Investigating committee, of which
Jeremiah M. Wilson was chairman, was
in session, and K. II. Rollins was on tho
stand. I telegraphed -Mr. Wilson to ak
tho witness certain questions concerning
the Fort Smith and Little Rock bonds,
but in noticing tho dally reports of the
committee, ntterwar.ls, 'I saw that no
such questions wero asked. On tho 3d
of February, 1S7.'I, I wrote to .Mr. Wil-on,
chairman ol tho committee, more fully
about tho matter, detailing the facts that
I have Just stated, but I did not mention
.Mr. Hlaln'.s name. I stated that the
transaction implicated a prominent nieiii
her of thu Republican paily. That letter
was copied Into my regular letter-book at
Indianapolis anil can be relerred to at auv
lime. I never received any answer to tlio
letter to Wilson, but, on thu 2Cth of Feb
ruary, just twenty-three days later, .Mr.
Delano, secretary or Iho Interior, wrote a
letter to a prominent Republican olllclal,
saying It was deemed best on tho part of
tho government to change the entire
board or directors of the Fnion Paelllo
railroad, and that ho thereloro proposed
to appoint some one from Indiana
in tho place of J. C. S. Ilarrl'on. This
proposition ol Delano mot with such
strong opposition that It was abandoned
and none of the directors wero removed.
Wo wero engaged at that time hi maklii"
