Allan G. Tlturman, the Democratic
candidate for Vice-President, was born ut
Lynchburg, Va,, November III, 1813, and
Is therefore much the oldest man over
nominated for Vice-President of tho Uni
ted States. Kl bridge Gerry, when inaug
urated in 181!), was (II), and tiled tho noxt
year; Win, H. King, inaugurated in 18551,
was 07, and died tho same year, after but
u month's service. VIco-Piusldont Hen

Mr. Tlturman served in the twenty
ninth Congress from Ohio, was on tho
supreme bench of Ohio from 1851 to 1850,
and was twolvo years in tho United Statea
Senate from March I, 18(10, to March 4,
1881, w hen ho was succeeded by John
Sherman. Ho won high reputation In
tho Senate iih un ablo lawyer and an un
Iliucliing enemy of legislative jobbery,
working hand in hand witli Senator Kd
munds in tho passage of tho so-called
Ktlmuuds-Thurman Paclllo railroad act.
Hu also bora un inlluentlal part in tho
lussagu of the electoral commission bill
in 1877 and was a conspicuous
memlier of tho commission. Ho
was distinguished while in Congress for

tho intention of the President's constitu
tional prerogative, Senator Thurmati wuh
tho lender of his party. In tho course of
that debate both Thurmnu and Havard
enunciated tho obsolete state supremacy

tlio war Mr. Thurmnu was not in Con

tho lead of Vallandlgham, Pendleton and
