The United States Biographies! Die-
tlonary, and Gallery of Eminent and
Melt-Made Men," Is a work Just Issued by
the American Biographical publishing
company, Chicago. This worx is gotten
up In excellent style, and gives short bio
graphical sketches of the lives of nearly
all the prominent men of Southern Illi
nois, and among them we find the
names of a number of the leading citi
zens and business men of Cairo. Promi
nent among the latter we find a lengthy
sketch of the leading event s in the litis of
Mayor Winter, of which the following is
a brief synopsis:
rVccording to this biography, Mr. Win
ter first saw tho light of day at Ports
mouth, England, August 15th, 1h, be
ing the thirteenth child ot a family of
sixteen children of Kobert and Jane
Winter, and one ot seven sons who ar
rived at maturity. The familv immigrated
to America In 1837, and settled in Cin
cinnati, Ohio, where Henry remained
until 184!. His educational advantages
were such as the public schools of that
early day afforded, 'together w ith one
term at Woodward's high school. At
the death of his mother the family w as
broken up, aud he was thrown on his
own resources, lie was oouna an ap
prentice at the tinsmith trade, and at
the end of four years left his master on
account of Ill-treatment aud bound him
self to another craftsman, with whom he
finished his mechanical education, grad
uating a first-class practical tinner.
He was an active member of the Cin
cinnati fire department tor a number of
years. He left Cincinnati In 1949, and
obtained a situation at Cannelton, Indi
ana, where by strict attention to busi
ness and good conduct fr) won the re
spect ot the community ; and the Hon.
Jacob Maynard, (now one of the editors
of a Louisville daily paper) advanced
him funds with which to start in busi
ness. He obtained the contract to make
all the tin ;ans for the Cannelton cotton
mills, amounting to thousands of doll ars,
and enabling him to branch out in mer
chandizing. An unfortunate partner
ship alliance, however, soon reduced him
to "first principles," and he was com
pelled to make another start. During
his residence in Cannelton he organized
two fire companies, of one of which he
wa3 president for five years.
Leaving Cannelton Mr. Winter arrived
In Cairo on the 20th of August, 185C, with
a "solitary dime In his pocket," but with
an indomitable will to persevere and suc
ceed. He was soon at the head ot another
tin shop ; prosperity crowned his efforts,
and in 1S6C-7 he was one of the largest
tax-payers in Alexander county, paying
as high as three thousand dollars In a sin
gle year. Previous to this date he built
a number of fine brick buildings, at a
heavy outlay ol money, besides a number
of less valuable building, and was the
owner of numoroiu valuable vacant lots,
besides three flourishing business estab
lishments in Cairo, two In Paducah and
one in Omaha, Nebraska, all under his
supervision, and doing a paying business.
At the breaking out of the war Mr.
Winter identified himself with the He
publican party, and continued to act
with that organization until In 1S72,
when he branched off and went with
the Liberal party in support ot iloraca
Greeley, being one of the delegates to
the Cincinnati convention that nomi
nated him. Since that time he has not
been identified with any party.
Iu l&jfi he was an Independent can
didate for mayor, against a regular Dem
ocratic nominee, but was defeated by
over three hundred majority. In 1S72,
aud again In 1673, he was the choice ot a
large number ol citizens, but was defeated
each time, though by greatly reduced
majorities, in 1S75 lie was again the
candidate of his friends, the Issues being
purely local but highly exciting, and his
opponents commanding the Influence of
all the moneyed interests of the city;
but this time victory perched upon his
banners. His career as mayor during
the year of his term demonstrates to the
citizens ;hat he Is tho right man in the
right place. The city has never been
better governed, crime and ruffianism
have become things of the past, and to
day he commands tho confidence of his
friends and the respect of his adversa
ries. During his residence of twenty years
in Cairo he has been Intimately con
nected with the fire department ; whs
president of the Arab lire compHiiy for
ten years, and Is at present chief of the
He is a gentleman ot fine personal ap
pearance, six feet high, without a gray
hair, or the slightest abatement of nat
ural vigor, and possessing the very best
business and executive abilities.
Throughout life he has been noted for
his unselfish generosity. Ills gifts to
benevolent purposes while In Cairo alone
amounted to over ten thousand dollars,
in sums ranging from one to five hun
dred dollars. His personal friendship Is
unbounded ; whero he forms an attach
ment nothing but the grossest perfidy
can ever shake it.
He was married on the 13th of August,
1851, to Margaret Murdock, of New
York. They have nine living children,
and one deceased In infancy.
In religious belief he Is eminently lib
eral. He was raised a Baptist in his na
tlve country, joined the Methodist
church under the preachlntr of Kev. John
J. Maffltt, la Cincinnati, 18(4. Since his
removal lrom that city he has not been
in communion with any church.
As occasion permits we propose to re
fer to other of our citizens whom the blog
rapber has made mention of lu the work
above referred to.
