ORIGIN OF "BUNCOMBE."
How a Colonel's Name Came to Be a
Term of Reproach.
Whenever I pick up a copy of the
Congressional Itecord and numerous
other pliblications and read the irrele
vant speeches therein reported I sigh
.for the memory of Colonel Edward
Buncombe, "Girard" writes In the Phil.
Through no fault of the gallant gen
tleman himself, there clings to his name
an unpleasant significance which many
of our brave public men do naught to
mitigate. Indeed, if there be such a
thing as one shade's taking vengeance
upon another in the future world Colo
nel Buncombe will at least pull out
Felix Walker's tongue.
It was all Walker's fault that "bun
combe" became a term of reproach,
and the Incident which made it so hap
penied i century ago.
Walker represented in congress a dis
trict of North Carolina of which Bun
combe county was a part. The county
had been named away back in 1791 lin
I honor of Colonel Buncombe.
Walker - was one of those long din
tance orators who without half trying
could empty the ha1ls of congaess and
put them in a condition beshde whIleh
the (lead streets of l'ompoll appear
great white ways. When upbralded one
day for talking about everyl hig ex
cept tho question at Issue Walker used
this immortal phrase:
"I nan only talking for Buncombe,"
mneanaing lhis holme colty.
And 8o "bitileiominhe" becaein a new
word lit ourki lanlguage. which has beent
conveniently shortened Into ithe collo
quial11 "bunk." '_*- -- '

and, entering It, sat calmly downI until
It stopped in front of the barrakel.
There he got out and, assembling all
