38th Mississippi Governor. He was admitted to the Mississippi State Bar in 1892 and opened a law office at Water Valley, Mississippi. From 1896 to 1900, he was a member of the Mississippi State Senate and in 1902, was appointed District Attorney for the eleventh judicial district. In 1911, he achieved the unique distinction in Mississippi political history of being the only unopposed Democratic Party candidate to run and be elected Governor of Mississippi. After leaving the office of Governor in 1916, he resumed legal practice and was a successful civil rights lawyer until his death.
