for State Senator  He goes down  in history as the first public man  elected for the long term Sena   torsbip that was never attacked  by a Negro paper in Kentucky   The high principles on which his  platform was  Negro preachers   editors  educators and business  men  were in sympathy with the    tution to be trained the Indus   trial Art of making their living  by the sweat of their brow  The

disgusted with the conditions   drew up a petition and signed it   sent one to the Superintendent  of Public Instruction  another to  Governor Jas  B  McCreary  and  another one to the Trustee Board

he said he  would carry out  They judged  by his past record in public office  that he would deal impartial to  all  The most remarkable of all  is that Mr  Beckham is a Demo   crat of the autocratic
