A BRILLIANT CAREER
Was What Roger Q Mills Left Be
hind Him When He Withdrew
From Politics
Special to the Herald
Washington D C Aug 22 The
bulletins Issued from a Baltimore hos
pital during the past week in regard
to the condition of former Senator
Roger Q Mills of Texas conveyed to
many persons their first intelligence
as Jo the whereabouts of this once
noted figure in public affairs Only
the oldtimers about the national cap
ital can fully understand how a man
once so prominent can become so ut
terly lost to public notice and concern
Twenty years ago in the national
campaign of 18SS Mr Mills was per
haps with the single exception of
Grover Cleveland the foremost man in
the democratic party He had served
his people nobly He had stood for
the principle of free trade as far as
any American can stand for free
trade Mills and his bill were upon
every lip It was significant that in
the famous convention that was held
at St Louis in that year only one
name was second to that of Grover
Cleveland and that was the name of
Roger Q Mills of Texas On the
lines of the Mills bill and the mes
sage these were the words in which
Henry Watterson described the plat
form which was adopted by the demo
cratic convention when it nominated
Mr Cleveland for the presidency
Ten years later Mr Mills was out
of politics Out of it by his own act
Out out it having been run over and
crushed by the same free silver jug
gernaut that ruined the political ca
reers of more than one democratic
leader of that time When Mr Mills
returned to Texas he found that con
ditions had changed The figure of
Governor Culberson had cast a great
shadow across the sunshine of his
path Already old experienced in the
ways of men knowing thejups and
andseelng
feen eTB mrafngWcfaeIc
him Tilr Mills got iout of vthe race for
the United States senatorship
It was a brilliant career that Mr
Mills left behind him when he with
drew from politics and retired to pri
vate life Though a native of Ken
tucky he has spent the greater part of
his life in the Lone Star State At 17
he located In Palestine Texas and
began the study of law In 1S52 he
began the practice of his profession
at Corsicana and seven years later he
was elected to the Texas legislature
He was a Confederate soldier a col >
onel In the Tenth Texas Infantry
When peace was declared he return
ed to Corsicana and went back to the
law In 1872 Mr Mills was sent to
congress and he was sent back every
term succeeding until in 1892 Texas
made him a United States senator
When he quit the senate he was a
comparatively poor man In recent
years It is said he accumlated a con
siderable fortune in the oil industry
