Four years ago, without solicitation er
upon my part, I was nominated to this
honorable position by the Democracy
of Madison, which nomination was
ratifed by the Democrats of East Car- bi
roll. At the time this nomination was t1
made, the prospects of an election was
gloomy indeed, and there appeared very pl
little, If any probability of success, but in
being a devoted and ardent Democrat
and believing if the Democratic orjani
sation was kept up in these parishes
and all true Democrats would stand and Pl
work earnestly together that success is
would come sooner or latert I accepted

When it comes to this, that the

pause and inquire as to what the
end of this thing will be.

1876. In those days he was Mr.
