The special committee uf the House, uf which
Mr, Wilson Is thalrmen, to Inquire Into the In-
debteduesa due the Uoveratnent by the Inlon
Pai in railroad, and why It la out paid, held a
special session last evening, and examined
Judge U P. rihermiii,iif Ohio. He testlflei) that
he wm a (tuverniuent director ui ine union
PaciOc raliroail from the summer of 144 till the
summer of tT. W heu the thiverament ill rectors
first met with the Inlon Pacific board In New
)ork,ln l4, they otJected to the lloxle con
tract. The exeiuflve committee did extend the
contract for NT miles without reporting to the
Iroard, ami the Government directors, when they
ftscerWTMd the fact, protested on the groand uf
the extravagant prtue agreeil upon. Il waa ua
ilerstosWlBaHWT Dnrant furnlsheil the uuaMy

utit it hla own private meant, and then the
credit niotrtller made Ita appearance, but how it
appeared, or when, waa kept concealed from Ihe
Uoverpment directors as much aa conld lie.
Thellovernment directora knew the road waa
carried un with remarkable energy by Imrent,
Witness Uioornt tne pncee annweti unner tne
Aniea contract were double what they ahould

dl.1 with hla remarkable energy. He could drive

no knowledge of any money ever telng paid a
Government orncer or member of Uongresa to

Jertel lo the Doomrr and lloxle contracts. The
lloxle konirait waa the only one rnterel Into

The manner in wtilcn ine roan was uunsiruricu
underthe Hox le contract was satisfactory. Wit
neaa thought profit of one hundred per cent,
on the a tualt-oHtuf the road wot hi not have
been too much to the contractor. Had not the
credit Inohlller been formed and taken hold of
the road Ihe work would have been stopped In
slty tlava. If the credit mobiller expended
thirty million of doiiara and made fifteen mil
lions they made no more than a fair profit. If
tbe road bail failed then and lost Dr. Dorant, for
he waa the life and eoul of the roaiLIt would
probably have ieen a failure to-day. The road
waa cianmenccd when the war waa In existence,
and when oovernment l-onda and all klnda ot
