U.S. Congressman. Graduating from University of Georgia, he studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1881 and commenced to practice law in Blackshear, Georgia. He was a member of the Georgia State House of Representatives, (1884-85), served in the Georgia State Senate, (1886-87) and as prosecuting attorney of the Brunswick Circuit Court of Georgia, (1888-96). In 1897, he was elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-fifth Congress and to the seven succeeding Congresses, serving until 1912.
