created by tho death of hid father, L. C.
Houk, of TonneBBco, ponding tho Fifty
first concreBB. and who, as in tho cubo of
Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, has been
successively ro elected, and is a member
of tho Fifty-third congresB. This dis
cussion was occasioned by tho recent
election of Mr. Mutchlor to Bucceed his
fathor, tho lato Congressman Mutchlor,
of Pennsjhania. Thero are varioim in
stances of horodity in botli houso and
eonato, but necessarily thoso of tho

James Ashton Uayard, another boh,
who succeeded John Wales in 18T1, and
Thomas F. Uayard, tho present Amen
can ambassador to Great lhitaln, who

and divino of great eminence and

James Donald Cameron was chosen a
senator from Pennsylvania to till the

father, Simon Cameron, in March, 1877.
Ho wiib re-elected in 1879, 1885 and 1890,

IIih services in tho scnato so far will,
therefoic, comprise a period of twenty
years, or two more ears than that of his
fathor. Simon Cameron was llrst
olected to tho senate in 1815, serving
until 1819, and was re-elected in 1857 for
the term ending in 180.'(. Ho resigned in
1801 to accept tiio secretaryship of war,

minister to RuBsitt. Ho was again
elected to tho sonato to succeed Edgiir
Cowan and took his seat in 18G7 and was
ro-olected in 187'J, resigning in 1877. An
inBtancoot heredity in cabinet piifer
ment occurs in the Cameron history, as
James Donald Cameron, tho son, was
President Grant's lust sccretury of war,
having been appointed to succeed
AlphoiiBo Taft, who succeeded W, W.
Belknap, resigned under impeachment.

heredity were those of Presidents John
Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams,
and William Henry Harrison and his

a representative in congress. I lis txjri,
Charles Francis Adams, served as a
representative in congress from 1858 to
1800, and wiib re-elected, but resigned in
18G1 to accept tho ministership
of Great, Britain, a osltion
previously lilted by his father
and grandfather, bo that there ensued to
tho Adams family a triple heiedity in
tho important otllco of minister to Eng
A case of heredity in tho third genera
tion of service in tho house occurred in
tho olection of T. L. Thompson as a
representative from California at tho
Fiftieth congress. His grandfather,
Phillip R. Thompson, wiib a representa
tive in congress from Virginia from 1801
to 1807, and his fathor u representative
