CECIL COUNTY—Three Members.
JOHN S. WIRT, Democrat.

John S. Wirt was born Nov. 16, 1861, in Cecil county.
He received his primary education in the Elkton Academy,
and in 18C8 entered St. John's College, where he graduated
four years later with the degree of A. B., carrying off the
highest honors of the class. In 1874 he graduated from
the law department of the University of Maryland, stand-
ing second in his class. For three years after graduating
he engaged in practice in Baltimore in partnership with
Gen. L. A. Wilmer. In 1884 he was a delegate to the
Democratic National Convention at Chicago. He again
was a delegate in 1892. In 1889 he was elected to the
State Senate. As a member of the Senate he took an
active part in public measures. It was largely due to his
efforts that the Australian ballot system became a law.
For many years he has been vice-president of the Civil
Service Reform Association of Maryland, and is also vice-
president of the Maryland State Bar Association. He was
•elected member of the House of Delegates in 1897.
