Becomes Contractor With his background of carpentry and mechanics, Donaghcy soon established himself as a contractor nnd in this calling laid the foundation for his later success in the world of business. In 1898, the Choctnw. Oklahoma and Gulf railroad wns building a line from Little Rock west into Oklahoma. It needed dopols i section houses and other buildings along the route. Dona- fehey won the contract. 11 was the first major contract of many such contracts to follow—for the building of Hondrix college, major business houses at El Dorado, a coiirl- liousc at Fnycltcville, another at Longview, Texas, the state insane nsyluni ,-it Little Rock, a similar institution at Terrell, Texas, the Exchange Bank building at Little Rock and many other leading commercial buildings in the capilo! city. His profession gave him his first contact with political affairs. The 1899 legislature authorized construction of a new slate house, and Governor Dan W. Jnnes named Donaghcy as one of Die building commissioners. This coin- mission laid the capitol cornerstone on July 4. 1900. State house construction almost at once became a political issue and years of controversy over the project followed. Factions formed over the proper procedure. Jeff Davis became governor in 1901 and the legislature in that year and in 1903 revised construction plans, finally calling for a new capitol commission and construction under contract. In August of 1903. Donaghcy was among the contractors bidding MM the ski to house construction, awarded to an out-of-state firm. Donaghcy, who had protested that his contract was the most favorable for the slate, later look the leadership in criticizing the construction work which got underway. Showing Irish fight, he went before the Democratic state convention at Hot Springs in 1900 and reviewed his case, simultaneously distributing pamphlets over the state against a continuation of the state house contract. In 1908, be offered for governor, making the capitol construction issue the main plank in his platform, and won over Attorney General W. F. Kirby. The 190!) legislature which took office with Donaghcy conducted an investigation into the state house construction work, and authorized appointment of a new state capitol commission, (the fourth) which Governor Donaghey headed. Following cngthy litigation, the old contractors were relieved of their contract, the work was re-awarded and the capitol 'inally declared completed in 1917. The state house issue dominated the Donaghey gubernatorial period, but lis administration also effected oilier 'ar-reaching legislation, including cre- ition of four district agricultural schools, at Magnolia, Mo/iticolln, lius- scllvillc and Jonesboro; establishment f the slate tuberculosis sanatorium, state history commission and tax commission, and passed the act which was the first complete legalization of the primary election. In the 1910 election, Donaghcy wn.' re-elected governor in a nice with C. C. Kavanaugh, later Little Rock postmaster.

On the following Christmas, he startled the nation by pardoning some 300 convicts in one group, an action credited with leading to eventual abbandon- ment of convict-leasing. When he retired from the governor's office in )!)!,'!, he handed over the reins to Governor Joe T. Robinson. Record as Builder Donaghey was as widely known for his business activity as for his political career. In 1905, he built the original Donaghcy building in Little Rock, a five-story structure and one of the most imposing of its day here. In 192. 1 ). he built (he new Donaghcy building in Little Rock, of 14 stories, and followed this with construction ol Iho Wallace building a few blocks down the capital's Main street. One historian once said of him: "As a builder and contractor, Governor Donaghey has more monuments in steel, concrete, stone and brick, than any man who ever lived in Arkansas." On his 73rd birthday, July 1, 1929, he and his wife jointly executed a deed of gift to the board of trustees of Little Rock Junior college, consisting of the bulk of their estate, as a continuing endowment to the college. This was known as the Donaghcy Trust Foundation, with an estimated value of ?!,000,000. Additional property, worth 5100.000, was deeded to the foundation in. the ummer of 1937. Other institutions which have bon- cfitted from Donaghey philanthropy icludo Arkansas Slate Teachers college and Hondrix college, both of lonway.

Essentially, the story by Harolc Shumate, adapted by Fred Niblo, Jr. Grace Neville. Lee Loeb and Harolc Buchman, tells of an unscrupuloui criminal lawyer's redemption at thi hands of the son he could not ac' knowledge through the years. Th< young lawyer, played excellently bi Doug Montgomery, had been adoptee by a state senator and his wife, the lad's real mother. The conflict, creating the major dramatic clash of the picture, occurs when Kruger takes his own son into his law office and attempts to make him his I partner. Kruger is a super-shyster. I Montgomery is a young idealist. They 'break when Kruger defends a murderer he knows to be guilty and Montgomery sets out to drive the man he doesn't know to be his father, out of the legal profession. Jacqueline Wells, talented young in- into the hearts of millions in of a kindly policeman. gcnuc, is the leading lady. The romance between her and Montgomery adds a lively light touch to the film's major dramatic theme. Ntina Bryant, in the most important role she has had for some time, plays the part of the role' Montgomery's mother with fine res- ! traint and conviction.
