Hugh Smith Thompson. governor
of South Carolina from 1882 to 1886,
died at his residence in New York
city last night.
Governor Thompson was born in
Charleston, January 24. 1836. but
was brought up in Greenville county,
where his father, Henry T. Thomp
son, was engaged in farming.
After his graduation at the Mili
tary Academy of the state he be
came an assistant professor in the
Arsenal Academy, Columbia, where
he rose regularly to the rank of cap
tian and a full professorship. During
the war he was stationed at Char
leston, in command of a corps of
cadets. When the militia of South
Carolina was reorganized in 1874 he
was elected president of the "Rich
land Rifle Club." which under his
captaincy took a prominent part in
the affairs of 1876. On the organ
ization of the "Richland Battalion?' he
became ; commander, and later
colonel of the "Palmetto Regi
In the democratic convention of
1876 he was unanimously nominated
for state superintendent of educa
tion. Unanimously renominated
in 1878 and again in i88o. he served
three terms in this office and would
have been renominated the fourth
time if he had not resigned to accept
the presidency of South Carolina
college, to fill a vacancy.
In 1882 he was chosen governor of
the state and reelected in 1884.
Toward the close of his second
term, President Cleveland offered
him the position of United States
commissioner of education, but he
declined the offer as he did that of
another prominent federal office
soon after tendered him.
On June 28. 1886, President Cleve
land tendered him the position of
assistant secretary of the treasury,
and to accept this position. at the
earnest personal solicitation of the
president, he resigned his office as
governor of the state.
After President Cleveland's defeat
in 1888, he nominated Gov. Thomp
son for the position of democratic
member of the United States civil
service commission. The senate
did not confirm the nomination, but
afterward 35 out of 76 senators made
written request of President Harri
son that he renew the appointment.
This he did and the senate promptly
confirmed his nomination.
In 1892, when the New York Life
Insurance company was organized,
Gov. Thompson was offered the
comptrollership of that great cor
poration. Of his resignation of his
place as civil service commissioner
to accept that office, Harper's Week
ly characterized it as a pubIc loss.
While continuously in public office
n1 state and nation from 1776 to 1892,
it can truly be said that the office al
ways sought the man and never the
ran the office.
Distinguished as a soldier, educa
tor, statesman, financier, no;ble
bearted gentleman, the whole coun
+ry with his fellow citizens of South
Carolina mourns his death.
The remains of Gov. Thompson
will be brought from New York to
:he state he loved, and cn Wednes
iay next will be interred in the city
