Q.—How would the ownership of
these 73 bonds involve Blaine ? A.-—
Because it would be thought a ques-
tionable transaction, as he could not
see why the U. P. R. R. should buy
bonds of the Little Rock & Fort
Smith R. R. Co., or any othor com-
pany. In acting as he did he desired
to avoid scandal.
J. F. Wilson testified he had been
government director ot the U. P- R.
R. since 69, and in reply to a ques-
tion by Hunter, said he had seen by
record that certain bonds of the
Little Rock & Fort Smith R. R.
Co. had come into possession of the
U. P. road, and had heard they came
through T. A. Scott, President of
the company. He had no knowl-
edge ofjno. C. Harrison, having in-
troduced a resolution, inquiring how
these bonds came in possession of
the company, but Harrison inform-
him Rollins had told him Blaine
would he implicated if there should
be an investigation. Wilson after-
wards had a conversation with Rol-
lins on the subject, when Rollins
said Harrison had no right to use
Blanc’s name in that connection.
Witness mentioned the matter to
Blaine a few months after, in Sep-
tember, 1872, when Blaine asset ttd
he had no interest in these bonds,
and no one could be more surprised
than himself that his name should
be connected with them.

tion of the charges against ex-speak-
er Blaine in relation to the L'oit

Hunter, chairman, testified that he

Morton and Bliss drew on the com-
pany for sixty-four thousand dollars,
and Rollins, as treasurer, paid it.
The witness regarded the transac-
tion on the books as very mysteri-
ous, but thought perhaps it could he
satisfactorily explained. He him-
self knows nothing blither about the

that he had been government direc-
tor of the Union Pacific railroad
about four years; was present at the
conversation between Rollins and
Harrison, in September, 1872, and
heard Rollins say that the investiga-
tion spoken of by Harrison would
involve a gentleman of high politi-
cal position, and understood him to
refer to Blaine, although he did not
recollect that his name was men-
The witness knew nothing about
the bonds spoken of, only what ap-
peared in the records ot the execu-
tive committee of the company.
Rollins had since told the witness
seveial times that he was mistaken
about Blaine being mixed up in the
matter, and that there was nothing
w rung about it.
