General MoCandlest, familiarly
Known as "liucK iiiouandiess, was
born In Philadelphia, September 29
1835. He received a good, common
school education and immediately be
came an apprentice to tho machinist
trade. After finishing his apprentice'
ship ho served for some time as a loco
motive, engineer on tho Pennsylvania
Kailioad, but not receiving promotion
as soon ns ho thought lie should he left
tho road and entered tho law office of
Moses A. Dropsie in Philadelphia and
was admitted to tho bar in 1858. Ho
was bright iu his profession and being
personally popular soon hau a good
legal practice. When tho war broke
out he entered Captain Timothy Mea
ley's corapapy as a private, but when
tho regirueut to which ho was at
tnched became tho Second Pennsylva
nia Reserves, Privato McCandless was
eloeted major. Ho becamo lieutenant

Crawford, in tho winter of 1803 and
tho following sprint: ho commanded
his division. In tho wilderness Mu-
Candless was captured, but in thoconfu
sion that ensued ho eluded his captors
and mado his escape. While leading
his brigade, three days later, ho was
wounded in tho arm and disabled from
further service, when ho returned to
Philadelphia and resumed his law praa
tico in partnership with Richard
Vaux. When subsequently tendered
brigadier's commission ho refused it.
In 1800 he was elected State Senator
from the First district ns a Democrat,
nnd in 1809 ho was nn unsuccessful
candidate for tlio Democratic Guberna
torial nomlnntiop, Later he was nom
inated for Auditor General, but was
defeated at the polls. Iij1874 ho was
elected Secretory of Internal' Affairs.
