U.S. Senator. Moving to Montana, in 1879, he founded the city of Great Falls, in 1882. He was very instrumental in making the city a major center of trade for farmers and ranchers and its dams on the Missouri River contributed power for ore processing and grain milling industries. He was the first Mayor of Great Falls and was elected to the Montana State Senate, in 1890. In 1901, he was elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of William A. Clark, serving until 1905. Not a candidate for reelection, he resumed his previous business interests.
