After an illness extending over several weeks, former United States Senator James Gordon died at his home in Okolona, Thursday, November 28. His death was due to senility. Senator Gordon became promi nent in the senate when he de livered the famous *‘Good Will” speech immediately after his ap pointment to fill the unexpired term caused by the death of Sen ator A. J. McLaurin. He was appointed to the sena torship December 27, 1909, and served until February 22, 1910. In that short time he attracted nation wide attention by his quaint utterances and his abound ing optimism. Senator Gordon served throughout the civil var as a Confederate captain. He was a successful planter and poet His manuscript has ap peared in many prominent publi cations throughout the country. Senator Gordon was born in December, 1833, and until a few months before his death had been in excellent health at his plantation. Under the caption “A South ern Gentleman,” The Washing ton Post has the following kind y reference called forth by the death of Senator Gordon: Politicians have spent six long years in the United States sen ate and failed in that time to win for themselves such a repu tation as was achieved by James Gordon, of Mississippi, in three short months. During his brief appearance upon the scene in the Capital this modest country gentleman, until then practical y unknown out of his own county, made himself a national figure, and his name became a house hold word throughout the coun try. It was not that Senator Gor don made his influence felt up on the legislation, for he did not. Beyond the introduction of a few bills of interest to his own state only, he contributed noth ing to the making of laws. He aided not in the molding of the public mind on any great ques tion, enunciated no principle of statesmanship, and took but an inconspicuous part in the affairs of the distinguished body to which he had been appointed to mi a vacancy. r>ui ne aenverea, on the eve of his departure, a speech so full of good will, so brimming over with patriotism and love for his fellow American citizens, couched in such a simple and nomely language, and show ing such kindly honesty and sin * cerity. that he won in an instant a measure of nation-wide popu larity which far more brilliant than he have vainly spent their lives in seeking. And when the time came for this country gentle man of the old school, this knightly former Confederate soldier, to return to the seclusion of his cotton plantation, he car ried with him the affection of a host of friends. A short. visit made the first of the week by Mr. Louis Armstrong, of St. Louis, to his niece, Mrs. T. F. Elkin, and other friends in Tupelo, was a source of much pleasure to all. Mr. Armstrong was reared atVsrona, but has been in St. Louis for a number t f j years. He is a member of the firm Tf T. .1. Moss Tie Company, which firm does an extensive business in railroad tie<. Mr. Armstrong’s many friend sin Mississippi are pleased to know of his success in a business way, and regret t at his stay among them was so short. SHANNON.
