    Fourth Representative District
    The republican convention of the fourth representative district, held at Princeton, Saturday..... Samuel W. Armington of Holden was nominated by acclamation as the candidate for representative. Mr. Armington is a farmer by occupation. Though born in Vermont, his home has been in Holden from early childhood. In December, 1861, he enlisted in the 15th Massachusetts regiment, and was in the service of the government something more than three years. During the first two years he participated in 18 engagements and was finally captured at Mine Run in November, 1863, and consigned to the prison pens of the South, dividing his time for more than a year between Charleston, Belle Island, Florence and Andersonville. His terrible expreince during nine months at the later place where 13,000 brave boys breathed out their lives, changed his dark hair to snowy whitemess, and permanently impaired a constitution naturally robust.
    Mr. Armington has been postmaster at Holden for 19 years, discharging his duties as such to the universal satisfaction of all citizens of the town regardless of political proclivities. But at length as new administration assumes control of the government, and under the principles of democratic civil service reform, Mr. Armington was removed, last fall, from his office as postmaster, without even the pretext of "offensive political partisanship," and was succeeded by one who was scarcely out of his swaddling clothes at the breaking out of the war. Mr. Armington believes in "biennial elections" and biennial sessions of the legislature, the vigorous enforcement of all laws, including those pertaining to the sale of intoxicating liquors, and heartily indorses the prohibitory plank of the republican platform.
