Henry Saint Julian

Henry Saint Julian was born July 23, 1862, in Franklin, Kentucky.  He received his education in the public schools and in the Kentucky Military Institute.

     Deciding upon the legal profession, he entered the law department of the University of Michigan, and immediately after his graduation in 1885 came to Kansas City, where he commenced to practice.

     He was elected to the Legislature in 1891, and served as a member of the Assembly until 1895.  While at Jefferson City he introduced the bill to tax franchises, which, while it failed of passage by a narrow margin, paved the way for later legislation.  Mr. Julian was also one of the first men to agitate the question of municipal ownership of the waterworks and in 1898 secured the insertion of the municipal ownership plank in the Democratic platform.

     He was appointed Chief of Police in 1897, and during his tenure of office put a stop to the foot-pad reign of terror by issuing orders to "shoot to kill."
     At the outbreak of the late war with Spain he was commissioned Major of the Fifth Missouri, and served until peace was declared.

     A Democrat all his life, he has served in every campaign on the City or County Committees, and is high in the councils of his party.
