EARNED HIGH HONORS.
The Interesting Career ot Mis-
souri's New Chief Execu.
William J. Stone, tho. new governor
vf Missouri, is a Kcntuckian by birth,
bavins hret necn the light of clnv in
Madison county, in the Blue Grass
state, on the 7th day of Mav, 1847
In personal appearance he is a typical
Kentuckian, tall ami Ftraight an
arrow, with a well formed head inni-ed
upon broad shoulders ; his hair plenti
ful and as free from "kink" as an In
dian's; a large firm month partially
concealed by a luxuriant mustache
and, a nose inclined to be aquiline.
Although he was too young to be
available for military duty during
the war. he enlisted in a confed-

erate cavalry company in 1863 and
performed such duties as fell to the
members of tho organization, which
was enlisted as a home guard. In 1863
he r Jinoved to Missouri, studied law
and was admitted to practice in 1867.
From 1872 to 1874 he was prosecut
ing attorney of Vernon county, and
made an excellent record, but relin
quished the position in order to de
vote himself to his more profitable
private practice and to farming and

In 1884 Gl. Stone was selected to
represent the Twelfth district of Mis
souri in congress, and was reelected in
1886 and 1888. Iu the house he
proved himself to be an indefatigable
worker and held positions on the va
rious committees on public lands, re
form in the civil service and on the
labor troubles in Pennsylvania. He
was industrious and vigilant in all
matters coming before his committees,
and his opinions as to the advisability
of legislation concerning them carried
great weight with his colleagues. He
was particularly conspicuous by reason
of his defense of the people against
the encroachments of corporations and
also took a prominent part in legisla-
tion uesignea to preserve me puouc
domain for the benefit of actual set
tlers. He is eloquent in debate and
when conscious of the rectitude of his
position is as firm as adamantine rock.
