Description: Candidates for Seat of Senator Brown

Date: January 14 1887

Newspaper published in: Tupelo, MS

Page/Column: Page 1, Column 4

It is understood Senator Brown, of Georgia, will occupy his seat in the Senate about the middle of the month, and will make a speech in favor of woman's suffrage, after which he will resign. The ostensible reason for retiring is that he suffers greatly from asthma, and his physicians warns him against the Washington winter climate and exertion of senatorial duty. The real reason, however, is alleged by some to be the Senator's feeling that he has been slighted in the matter of patronage. Among the leading candidates for the seat are Governor Gordon, Congressman Crisp, General Lawton, Hon. J. C. C. Black and N. J. Hammond.
