mining properties in the country. Meanwhile
he has taken a deep interest in the welfare of
miners and other classes of laborers, and has



sought to promote arbitration and conciliation
between employers and employed, as a means of
averting disastrous strikes. He was especially
active during the long strike of 1897, in efforts to
bring about an understanding between the
miners and the operators. For several years
he held a commission as Lieutenant-Colonel of
the Illinois National Guard until compelled, by
the demands of his private business, to tender
his resignation.

REYNOLDS, John, Justice of Supreme Court
and fourth Governor of Illinois, was born of Irish
ancestry, in Montgomery County, Pa., Feb. 26,
1789, and brought by his parents to Kaskaskia,
111., in 1800, spending the first nine years of his

Fifteenth General Assembly, and again in the
Eighteenth (18.52-54), being chosen Speaker of the
