It is said that the Pacific Coast Democrats may offer Francis G. Newlands, United States from Nevada, as a candidate for the presidential nomination.
Mr. Newlands, who is now serving his second term in the senate, is a Mississippian and was born in the old city of Natchez in the summer of 1848. He entered Yale College in 1863, during the civil war, and remained until the middle of his junior year in 1866; later he studied law at what is now the George Washington University, was admitted to the bar in Washington and went to San Francisco to practice. He removed his office to Reno, Nevada, in 1888, and since has been recognized as one of the ablest and most influential leaders in his state.
He served ten years in the house of representatives and was a member of the Democratic minority of the committee on irrigation, foreign affairs, banking and currency and ways and means, where he was able to participate actively in the most important legislation of the period and did his share in framing two tariff laws and a currency law, and was the author of the existing reclamation act.
