' .......- -.v.--.. If hard work and -faithful service to the party are any recommendation, no man in the state is more deserving of recognition than Mr. Henry. For several con.paigns he has been in the forefront of the battle, and it is no credit to the administration that his claims have been so long neglected. The Eastern Itelleetor, January, 1895 Mr. llenry nas periormea enougn service for the Democratic party to give him a good claim upon it. Lie has not only the merit, trom a partisan's standpoint, which not only warrants, but suggests his recognition, but he has capacity for public place, and it is a trifle discouraging to party worker' to see him overlooked while party favors go to undeservers. It is high time his claims had due attention. Charlotte Observer, December, 1894. .ays one of the most distinguished Democrats of the State: If you are not appointed it will be an exhibition of base ingratitude on the part of party leaders. .Saya anothtrr It is a great outrage jhat somethirtf lias not been done for you before ibis, and I 'nost earnestly lnj- sono-t hinjr will ! m compli-hcd at an early day.

Another gentleman, one of the most prominfiit Democrat in the western portion of the State, de clares : It is a shame an outrage that in the distribution of patronage you have remained unappointed. You have not been surpassed by any man in your faithful and ellicient " work for the party. I still hope that justice may be ('one you.

In the becinning of hie sketch the writer eayts: "I am aDemocrat; have voted the Democratic ticket nearly tbirtv years; have never been a candidate for any poiit'cal office." Alonzo Cra'g bhuford, his middle name given him after his lather t intimate friend, Hon. Burton Craig, of Lincoln coanty, was lorn about thirty-six years ago, the son of George P. Shuford and Kliza Baker. His grandfather, Divid Shuford, had Hon. Ionzu Craig Shuford. en high sheriff of Lincoln county in the olden time, when the best of men were selected to hold that ffice ; and in 106, 1812, 1813, 1815, 181 G and 1820 was senator in- the General Assembly from his district David took to wife Elizabeth Ram- sour, of the historic line so nam d, and on ever7 side the young Con gressman is allied to the best and oldest families of the Valley of the Catawba. His father, George r. Shuford, was a leading citizen of this county, and for years was chair-, man of the then county court At fourteen the lad went to Hick- cry and began a business education in the store of his brother-in-law, A.. S. Ab.rnethv. After a year or two he went back to continue his schooling at the Catawba College in Newton. On his return to Hickory in 1875, or thereabouts, he entered the Urge store of Hall Bros., and re mained with them as clerk and bcok- keeper several years. Naturally quick-witted ami alert to learn, he accumulated while thus engiged a very considerable stock of useful knowledge, Iwth of men and of af fairs, which has stood him in good stead 6ince. In 1882 he married Miss Willie E, daughter of Lieut Col. Thomas Lowe of the 28th North Carolina Infantry who had been brought back from his post in vir- ginia during the war to be buried at home. Having bought one of the shares in the Lowe farm, he begun his life a3 a farmer, a id has been de servedly successful. I am told he made fifteen hundred bushels of corn this year. Some ten years ago he joined the German Reformed church, of which he remains a useful and worthy member, especially zealous in Sunday-school work. In 1889, hav ing joined the Farmers' Alliance, he was soon made a county lecturer. later district lecturer; then in 1892 he was elected delegate to the labor conference in February of that year, which met at St. Louis; and also a delegate for the state at large to the farrou8 Omaha . convention, and at the last session, held at Greensboro, was elected Vice-President of the North Carolina Farmers' State Alliance. From a frieud's descrip tion and a recent photograph, it seems that Mr. Shuford is a well built; native man of middle height, slightly bald, with oval face, dark eyes and moustache anl has a ktei, quick look, denoting unusual powers of observation. His bearing is frank and manly, and his manners courteous ata engaging. Hn in . , " , ... .

He never hesitated to meet any opponent, but gained the reputation of being an excellent debater. Country boy as he wa?, without the manifold advan tages of his veteran competitor, hav ing arraytd against him the patron age of the government, the newspa pers and the federal oflice-ho.ders, he yet attacked and defeated in a short, but brilliant campaign, the senior represent itive of the State. He is "our member" now. What is to his credit is to our credit; what hurts him hurts us. For the next two years he will have in charge our interests in the great council cf the nation, and as we uphold him, he will help us. So far then as we can- approve of his course; by all means let us say go, and whenever he does things worthy of praise, let us praise him and be prjud he btloDgs to us. A man of his stamp, who can in a few months r volutionize the poli tics of a great district and send John S.

Oiover Cleveland was first inau gurated President of the United States on March 4th., 188". The Forty-ninth Congress came into be ing the same day, though it did not meet in session until the succeeding December. It has been the custom, sinee the time of Washington, for the Presi dent, during the months of January and February each year to trive three ci'-d receptions one to the Diplomat ic Corps, one to the Congress, and a third to the Army and Navy. These receptions have never been omitted the year after the President is inaugurated. In every . instance cards oj inntatton have been sent to the members of Congress and their families, and nrh other perrons as the President saw fit to incite to meet them. These invitations are always accept ed. All the membeis of the cabinet are expected to be present with their families; and it is usual for the Presi dent to invite som of' the prominent officials with their families The Forty-ninth Congress came into political life the same day the Democratic President was inaugu rated, though it did not assemble, in .ession until Monday December 5th, 1895.
