Republican nomination for Congress from ,
the Xinth District, and was electcd, de- j
feating Judge H. S. 1C. Morrison, Of Scott j
county; in 1SSG he was again nominated j

Agam in 1SSS, he recelved; the Republican |

Demoeratic nominee, Judge W. F. Rhca. I
This election he contested strenuously, i
but the report of the committee, which
was sustained by the House, was in j
favor of the conter.tee. Once more, in
1900, the Republican party of his district i
made him its standard bearer in the
Congressional race, and again he was de- |
feated by Judge Rhca, his former op

while taking uepositions in his first Con?

effect, W. S. Hamilton, an attorney of
tiiat city, and was himself shot through
the right shoulder by George C. Davis,
the stenographer, who was taking the
deposuions, resulting in the permanent

For the shooting of Hamilton he was
tried and acquitted, and Davis was, like

grounds of the defense interposed by
In 1S57, in Augusta county, he was mar

now living. viz.?A. E. Waiker, Esq., of
Florence, Ala.; Mrs. James R. Jordan,
of Wytheville; and Mrs. M. M. Caldwell,
of Wytheville.
General Waiker was widely known to
both Demoeratic and Republican poli
ticians in Richmond. When he was de?
feated of the Demoeratic nomination for
Governor by John W. Dar.iel, in 1881, he
"fell out" with Richmond, which went
ncr.inst him in the convention.

that convention never to set my loot
upon Richmond soil. But this invitation
was one I could not well afford to de
clino. So here I am."
The General on several subsequent oc
casions came here to attend meetings of
the State Republican Committee. He
was very popular' with the Confederate
voterans, who admired his many ex
collent Qualities as a soldier.
