    Though his political career was over by 1915, Foss was in the news that year in connection with 3 events. First, he led a delegation to Georgia to plead for commutation of the death sentence given Leo M. Frank. Then, he was involved in the threatened labor troubles among machinists doing war work in July and August of that year, as he controlled 2 machine shops in Massachusetts. 11FF385B1773...
    Later in the year, he ran unsuccessfully for the his party's nomination as its candidate for governor of Massachusetts.
