I'he early lite of .Mr. Milliken \va.s spent in .Saco where the limited op-
portunity of an education was well improved. At the age of fifteen he ac-
cepted a position as clerk in a dry goods store in Saco, with B. F. Hamil-
ton, remaining three years, thus gaining a knowledge of the mercantile busi-
ness which cietermined his career in life.

Ambitious to see the West, when only eighteen years of age he accepted
a position in Traverse City, Mich., with Hannah, Luy <!v: Co., with whom
he remained nearly six years, his services being efficient and greatly ap-
preciated by his employers.

When not twenty-five years of age he decided to embark in business for
himself and, today, is proprietor of one of the largest, most reliable and
tirmly established dry good stores in his section of the state. He is also
secretary and treasurer and a large stockholder in the Potato Implement
Company, a manufacturing concern engaged in the construction of all
kinds of farming implements used in the planting, cultivating, digging and
crating of potatoes.

Politically, Mr. Milliken is an uncompromising Rebublican. For a
number of years he was president of the Business Man's Association. He
has served on the City Council, and was for several years chairman of the
County Central Committee. In 1897 he was elected to fill a vacancy, and
in 1898 he received the nomination for state senator, being elected by a
large plurality. He completed a successful term, and although amply quali-
fied and splendidly equipped, wishing to attend to business and home duties,
he could not be induced to accept another political office.

Mr. Milliken has always taken a most active interest in the develop-
ment of the city where he resides. Fair-minded and conscientious, his
word is always as good as his gold. He can be trusted at all times and in
all places to do the right. He is esteemed all over the state and numbered
among her best citizens. Charitable to the extreme, many are the times he
has reached a helping hand, unknown to others than himself ; this is his
way of giving.

He is a regular attendant and a member of the Congregational church.
For years he has been superintendent of the Sabbath-school comprising a
membership of nearly seven hundred ; and is now the president of the state
Sunday-school Association, and has been either vice president or member of
the executive committee for a number of years. He is also a member of the
Board of Directors of Olivet College.

A devoted husband and father he is unusally happy in his home-life, and
stands before the world a true type of the intellectual, courteous Christian

Onti son, /ami's 'J'//(U-^-t-r Al/V/iArf/, in now a student at Olivet College,
Mich., and is a young man of marked ability, giving ])romise of a bright
future. See portrait of Mr. Milliken in this book.















called In- the Federals "Antietam," he was taken prisoner, and being severely
wounded was soon discharged. For more than a year he was on crutches, and
the etYccts of his wound are seen in his gait to-day. As soon as he could walk
with a cane he organized a company over which he was elected cajUain, and
again entered the Confederate Army in 1S64. He was among those taken prison-
ers by Sherman at Savannah, ancl was confined in the Old Capitol Prison in
Wasliington. Thence he was removed to Fort Delaware, where he was confined
until June 19, 1865, after the war had closed, \\hile in prison he was urged
by his Northern relatives to take the oath of allegiance and gain his freedom,
but he stub])ornly refused. After his army service closed he returned to his
agricultural ])ursuits in A])})ling County, and was successful. He owns e.xten-
si\e tracts of land in Appling and Wayne Counties, and carries on farming on
an extensive scale. In 1883 he engaged in merchandising in Jesup, Wayne
Countv, but soon sold out and returned to his farm. He is one of the directors
of the State E.xperimcnt Farm from the TUeventh Congressional District, and has
been a life member of the State Agricultural Society for fourteen years.

He was one of the five justices of the Inferior Court of Appling County, and
served until the courts were abolished in the State of Georgia, and Boards of
County Commissioners established in lieu of them. He was a member of the
first Board of County Commissioners for Appling County. Also county school
commissioner. \\'as chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee of his
county, and subsequently held the same position in AAayne County. Was a
member of the Popuhst Executive Committee of Wayne County, and member
of the Populist State Executive Committee from tb.e Eleventh Congressional
District. Also delegate to several congressional and gubernatorial conventions
in the Democratic and Populist parties. Received the unanimous nomination
for Congress, and ran, in i8g6, on Popuhst ticket, ^^'as nominated and made a
race on State ticket for Comptroller-General in 1898, on Populist ticket. Town
Treasurer for Jesup, Ga., in 1899. Member and President of Boards of Educa-
tion in Appling County, and same, later, in Wayne County. Was first Presi-
dent of the Board of Education of pubhc school system of Jesup, Ga., and mem-
ber of the Board of Aldermen of the same town.

He would always keep a school going in his community, and often employed
the teachers, and took chances of getting their pay from patrons. He established
a school for girls in Jesup, known as "The Milliken Girls' School," which was
a success.

Formerly a Democrat, as were his father and grandfather, in 1S94 he became
a Populist, both as an individual and as proprietor and editor of the Jesup
Sentinel. His abihty as a writer is of the first order, and his editorials are clear
and caustic. As a business man he has few equals. Strong politically, he is
considered to be a rising light who will yet succeed to a higher station as a rep-
resentati\-e of his fellow-citizens. As a man he holds the respect of his com-
munity. Few men have been more successful where pure grit and industry
were the essential factors to be considered than Captain MiUiken.
