DELANGRE (M.), mayor of Plassans. He was the son of a bricklayer, and
when he passed as a lawyer had to be content with petty suits that no
one else would take up. It was said that he became the lover of Madame
Rastoil, and it was certainly through her influence that he won his
first cases. He was shrewd enough to show no particular political
proclivities; so after the _Coup d'Etat_ of 1851, when they were looking
out for a mayor, his name was at once thought of. He was elected,
and from that time everything prospered with him. As a result of much
scheming by Abbe Faujas, Delangre was adopted as candidate for the
representation of Plassans, and was elected by a triumphant majority
over Maurin, the Republican candidate. After his election, he voted
steadily with the Government, thus accomplishing the object for which
Faujas was sent to the town. La Conquete de Plassans.
