?) profisslon in 1S42 at (I.iincsville, Ala. He
served as a lieutenant in the Mexican war.
lUll and in 1H4'J went with a party of friends on
Sv horseback to California. Before that trip
,2Sk he had be*n elected solicitor for the seventh
H circuit, and after his return he was elected
judge in the same circuit. He continued in j
Wt the practice of law until the breaking out of !
the civil war. when he entered the Con- !
federate army as a major of the Biih Ala- j
bama Infantry. 11- was in many battle.*, !
and arose to the rank of brigadier general, i
?l_"pon the close of the war he returned to
his home and resumed the practice or the
law. 1'ntil h'F election as I'nlted Stales
senator he was ni ver a candidate for any
S political omee.
Last of the Old School.
Senator IVttus was oni of the la^t of the
old school of statesman in the Senate.
Dignified and courteous to a degree, lie
?' was a great stickler for the pres rvation
of the amenities in debate and conduct and
when he occasionally presided over the
Ml Senate was a martinet in preserving di?cipline.
Woe botidp the young senator who
failed to give the most careful attention to
4Hm tiie rules of debate; tlve presiding officer
would call him to time quickly and sternly.
Wk Senator Pettus was not a great orator,
MR/ but lie was a keen debater, anil possessed a
fund of sarcasm upon which be draw libiflhn
erally when occasion otTered, as w.ts evlL^nri
ilonnurl in l\)o nalaUrotnrl wit!l Sonfltfir
tBeveridge. Ho venerated the Constitution
of the United States and was never
abspnt from ji debate on that subjeet, but
d-spite liis advanced years would sit
patiently for hours, shitting his ixisition
from time to time to be near the s -nator
who was occupying the floor.
One day In th? last session of Congress
ex-Senator Pugh of Alabama came up to
QBkl the Senate and stood In th 1 r.ar of tiie
seat.*. where lie was soon join d by Sen?ator
Morgan. Senator Pettu?, peering over
his horn-rlinmed spectacles, joined his colleague
and his predecessor. The tliree remaincd
in friencly conversation for finite
01 a wliile, much to th? interest of th? spectators.
who remarked that Hie combined I
BJ ng-? of the three Alabamiana wa- 250 years.
Mr. Pngh was eighty-seven. Senato- I'ettus
was eighty-six and Senator Morgan was
ygy eighty-three. They have ail passed over
within the year.
Beloved bv His CoHeae-ues.
Senator Pettus was very much beloved by
his colleagues. Notwithstanding hi.s adjg.
vanced a go he was fond of amusement and
Ew) was devoted to a friendly game of cards at
his own homo, recognizing no limitations of
time when fir.jrayed in his favorite pursuit,
W so long as the candle held out to burn and
the fine cut was not exhausted. Many deKyi
light ful anecdotes are told of his fondness
*?^ for harmless play.
? ro a irienu last year he expressed His
three cardinal principles or views of life,
lie said: "I love my wife, I love a game
A] of cards and I hope to live to be quite .a
mature man." Ho was only eighty-six
then, but he did not regard that as any691
thing. He was devot >d to his family and
was a great home lover.
Senator Pettus will be succeeded by Mr.
Joseph F. Johnston, who was choscn at
the primaries as an alternate the same
ffia] time Mr. Bankhead was elected to succeed
Sf-nator Morgan In event of his death. Mr.
jonnsion is a man oi pr nouncea ability in
Mj both business and politics. Ho is of atw'
tractive personality, with engaging address,
?and it te P ophcsUd will be a cr<?ri:t to his
state. He mad.' his reputation in politics

JBy is a man of modern iJi*as and thoroughly
? alive to the int rests of the n-'w /south.

voted the democratic ticket, but who will do
so if Mr. Roosevelt is nominated. Personally,
1 shall vote against him.
JBy "While political matters are chaotic, I do
"ot think there is any likelihood of the
nomination being given to the present oecupant
of ttie White House. Of all the
?prospective candidates the chances of Gov.

are the latest additions to the fl^et of pleasure
boats owned here. They were put overboard
at Reagan's railway the latter
part of last week and as soon as they can
be fitted out they will go in service. Both
boats were built by their owners in this |
city from knockdown frames and the keels
were laid on the same day and they were
launched the same day. Both boats are of
the same type and are thirty feet long,
with ample beam to give them stability on
the water. They are both equipped with
sixteen-horsepower gasoline engines that
will give them good #peed. They have
roomy cabins, with comfortable accommodations
for lone tiips. The new boats are
handsome craft and will be big additions to
the local fleet of pleasure craft.
Capt. C. 11. Brannagan has a thirty-foot
dead-rise sailing rraft at Cumberland's
boathousc at the foot of 9th street to be
fitted with an auxiliary engine, a shaft and
wheel. A ten-hors?power gasoline motor is
to be installed aboard the boat and h r
owners will use her for pleasure cruising
on the river. The equipment of masts and
sails will be left on tlie boat for service
with fair winds o:' should the engine become
disabled. TI.e craft will be used for
pleasure trips on the river during the late
summer and fall.
