At that time ther6 Was not a whisper against him of dishonest or dishonorable conduct. Tho only sentiment evinced was a strong feeling of commiseration and respect. As evidence of this, in the fall of that year he was blected a member of tho Legislature from Huntingdph county, and received eve ry vote cast in tho township of his resi dence save one.
