He became editor of the local newspaper and also engaged in the real-estate and insurance business, railway construction, and in the growing of citrus fruits. He served as mayor of Lakeland 1888–1892. County commissioner of Polk County 1896–1899. Chief engrossing clerk of the State house of representatives 1889–1901.
