He moved to Washington, D. C., in 1879, and accepted a position as clerk in the postoffice department, where he continued four years. In 1883, he resigned to re-enter the coal business at Oliver Springs, Tenn., owning an interest in the Winters Gap Coal Company of that place at the present time, and is secretary and treasurer of the same.
