In the house, on the second day, the Hon. John R. Lynch, of Adams county, was chosen speaker, by a positive and decided republican vote, the Hon. Mr. Chandler, of Noxubee, being also a prominent candidate on the republican side.

Mr. H. W. Warren, republican, was elected clerk of the house on the first ballot, James Hill sergeant-at-arms and L. J. Scurlock doorkeeper.

John R. Lynch is a colored man, about twenty five years of age; a thorough parliamentarian, an experienced legislator, with a good education and sound judgment; who is studious and considerate, and who as a public man and a politician, seldom if ever makes mistakes. He is an honor to his race and the party to which he belongs.
