Colorado Governor 1895-1897. Educated at Yale, McIntire practiced law in Pittsburgh for two years before moving to Colorado in 1876. He continued the practice of law and held several judgeships before being elected as the Republican candidate for Governor in 1894. In the general election, he defeated the Populist Governor David H. Waite and the Democrat Charles Thomas. During his administration, leasing of state lands was limited to ten years, the State Bureau of Mines was created, and the age of consent for girls was raised from sixteen to eighteen. In June of 1896, he sent the state militia to Leadville to put down a strike of silver miners. His term ended on January 12, 1897 and he resumed the practice of law and ranching in the San Luis Valley.
