John Mellen Thurston ^ (^Daniel Syh'ester7 Timothy,^ yohn^^
Beiijamw,^ Daniel,'^ Daniel,'' John ■), brother of the preceding, and
son of Daniel Sylvester and Ruth (Town) Thurston of Montpelier,
Vt. ; born there Aug. 21, 1S47 ; married, in Omaha, Neb., Dec. 25,
1872, Martha L. Poland, born at Morrisville, Vt., May 12, 1848,
daughter of Luther and Clara M. (Bennett) Poland of Omaha.

Altho Judge Thurston was born in Vermont he was early trans-
planted to the west. In 1854 his father's family removed to Madi-
son, Wis., and two years later to Beaver Dam, in the same state. As
a boy he worked on the farm each summer and devoted the winters
to study in preparation for college. At the age of sixteen he entered
Wayland University, and graduated at twenty. He then entered upon
the study of the law, and May 21, 1869, was admitted to the bar in
Columbia county. Wis. In October of that year he removed to
Omaha, where he has since resided. While he has always taken an
active and personal interest in political affairs, he has been thoroughly
devoted to the law, and has made everything else subordinate to its
pursuit. He has had charge — on one side or the other — of almost
all important cases in that part of the country the past ten years,
and has been successful in every case of great moment. His career
is already an exceptional one, and to judge from the signs of the
times, it is scarcely yet begun. To use the flowery phrases of a west-
ern paper : — " The footsteps of John M. Thurston are heard on the
bridge that leads to fame ; he is on the whole the most promising
man in the west." From the appended list of the offices that he has
held it will be seen that he has steadily advanced from one position
of trust to another. He is now general solicitor of the Union Pa-
cific Railway Company's system, and would have been elected to the
United States senate four years ago, to succeed Senator Van Wyck,
had not Senator Manderson been a resident of Omaha; as it was he
■ had a strong following, sufificient to show that he will be the choice
of his party for the next vacancy in that body from Nebraska. At
the time of the last presidential inauguration his name was urged for
a place in the cabinet as Secretary of the Interior. A petition was
signed by the legislature and state officers of Nebraska, and was for-
warded to Mr. Harrison, asking the appointment of Mr. Thurston.
Colorado joined hands with Nebraska, and also presented to Mr.
Harrison a petition signed by all the state officers and members of
the legislature of that state saying that Mr. Thurston was the choice
of Colorado for Secretary of the Interior. Kansas, Dakota and
Wyoming also favored his appointment. To quote once more from
a western paper: — "He is a typical western man; he understands
the needs and wants of our people. He is the choice of the farmers
and homesteaders, having risen from their ranks himself. He is the
choice of the 'old soldiers,' and is in sympathy with them, his father
having been a soldier, who only left the battlefield to die. The grand
army will rally to his support. He is the choice of the whole people,
for they have a faith that in his hands their interests will receive
steadfast support. They recognize his superior ability and fitness for

MagaTljie ofmsKm tt'J'-n'


the place, as well as his manly and unflinching integrity." He is thus
described in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper : — J" Hon. John
M. Thurston of Omaha has long been known as an able lawyer, but
it was not until the assembling of the Republican National Conven-
tion in Chicago, when he was made the temporary presiding officer,
that he achieved a national reputation as an impressive orator. His
speech, delivered upon that occasion, was one of great power, and
elicited rapturous applause from the vast multitude present. Indeed,
he was accorded, at its close, an ovation, such as few speakers ever
receive. He has a strong, clear, penetrating voice, and every word
is uttered with the utmost distinctness, and at no time is there any
hesitation in his speech for want of a proper term to express his
meaning. His command of language is very unusual, while grace
and polish mark every sentence. Added to these accomplishments
is a splendid presence, which at once stamps him as a man of more
than average character, and as a leader of men instead of a follower."
We give some of the positions he has held : — From April, 1872,
to April, 1874, he was a member of the city council of Omaha.
From April, 1874, to August, 1877, city attorney of Omaha, at which
time he resigned the office of city attorney to accept the position of
assistant attorney of the Union Pacific Railway Company ; 1875 "^'^^
a member of the Nebraska legislature, chairman of judiciary commit-
tee of the house and acting speaker; fall of 1875 was candidate of
republican party for judge of third judicial district of Nebraska,
but was defeated by democratic opposition; 1880 headed the Ne-
braska electoral ticket, and was electoral messenger; 1884 was chair-
man of republican delegation from Nebraska to the republican na-
tional convention of that year, in which convention he seconded the
nomination of John A. Logan for vice-president. He was also dele-
gate from Nebraska to the last national convention, and temporary
chairman of the same. February i, 1888, he became general solici-
tor of the Union Pacific Railway Company's system, which now em-
braces about eight thousand miles of railroad, extending into or thro
almost every state or territory west of the Missouri river ; also presi-
dent of the Republican League of the United States.
