Excerpt from Portraits and Biographies of the Members of the Legislature of Pennsylvania and Heads of Departments: Session of 1895

Mr. Thomas' interest in politics has always been intense, and in 1884, at the early age of twenty-four, he was elected a member of the House of Representatives by the Republicans of his district; was re-elected for the sessions of 1887 and 1889. He resigned at the close of the latter to accept the position of private secretary to Thomas V. Cooper, Collector of the Port of Philadelphia, resigning this in turn to care for his duties as a member of the Senate, to which position he was elected in 1890, from the 4th district.

An idea of Senator Thomas' unusual popularity may be gained from the fact that, although opposed by a prominent and influential Democrat, his majority at the election was nearly votes. Among other measures introduced by him during his service in the Legislature is the appropriation bill which resulted in the beautifying of the capitol and the erection of a new library and administration building. A tire less and faithful party worker, a genial, polished gentleman, he is esteemed and respected by all, regardless of party connections.
