Plumb and of the home of his family. The latter building was completed after the Senators death, and in it dwells the family, except young Preston, who is temporarily absent at school.Mr. Plumbs career in Kansas is so well known that there is little use for a historical writing here. He came here in 1857 and helped locate the town, and started its first newspaper, The Emporia News. He was intimately associated with the town as long as he lived. He had been reared in Ohio and learned the printers trade.

At the age of eighteen years he was one of the editors and proprietors of the Xenia (Ohio) News, and before he was twenty he had established his Emporia paper. When he was twenty-five he was a member of the Kansas house of representatives and chairman of its judiciary committee. He left the newspaper in 1859, and went to law school.

Returning here in 1861, he opened a law office, after a brief trial at editorial work again. He had but just started fairly when he enlisted in the army, where he served over three years. Returning from the army, he again threw all his power and energy into the law practice, and the firm of Ruggles & Plumb had, in a remarkably short time, a practice excelled by only one firm in the state.

He next became president of the Emporia National bank. At the sessions of the house of representatives in 1867 and 1865 he was again a member of that body, the first time as its speaker. In 1877 he was elected United States senator, and was re-elected in 1883 and in 1889. He made his best reputation as senator by his untiring devotion to the interests of his constituents.

The death of no public man from Kansas was ever so generally and sincerely regretted and mourned as that of this citizen of Emporia. Mr. Plumb was a complete success in life in all his undertakings. He had great industry and power, and when necessary these were exerted to the fullest extent for the accomplishment of his objects, and he scarcely knew there was a word called fail.

His great usefulness was lifelong.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
