At the legislative caucus for the nomination of United States senator Mr. Gordon was nominated over Gov. Woodbridge, who was also a candidate; but at the election the Democrats united with the Woodbridge faction and elected him United States senator. Mr. Gordon thus became the executive of the state, and discharged the duties of the office with universal acceptance. Soon after the close of his gubernatorial career he received a federal appointment to one of the South American states. At this time his lungs had become involved with the bronchial difficulty before named, and the delusive hope was cherished that a residence in a more genial clime might stay the further progress of the disease. It was for a time retarded, but not cured. The fatal ending came, and came in a most distressing manner. In a fit of convulsive coughing he fell from the balcony of his hotel and was fatally injured. Under such painful circumstances the brilliant scholar, lawyer and statesman, the venerated husband and father, and the accomplished gentleman, died among strangers and in a foreign land. William H. Brown is the oldest practicing lawyer at the bar of Calhoun county. Although he has always been a consistent and outspoken politician, he has never held or been an aspirant for office. The study and practice of law has been his highest ambition. In that he has excelled. Identified as he is, with all the history of Marshall, he is well and favorably known by all its citizens. He is a gentleman of courteous bearing, possesses a fine classical and legal education, and occupies, as he should, a commanding position in society.
