155 served as a deputy U. S. marshal for the Southern District of Ohio. He is a member of both the Central and Executive Com- ndittees of the anti-separate coach movement. A member of the Republican County Committee of Fayette County; connect- ed with all movements looking to the advancement of the Ne- groq is treasurer of No. 6, U. l. F., strongest lodge in Kentucky-. It was he who first called for a convention of the colored men of the South, being joined by such gallant spirits as George and William Spears and Elijah Hathaway. He has letters from slich men as Gen. John A. Logan and James G. Blaine endors- ing the movement and regretting their inability to be present. Mfr. Chenault has long been an active and conspicuous member of the Republican party. Ile did more than all others to carry the Seventh District for J. C. Jackson and thus placed Mr. -Jaelson in a position to be elected a delegate-at-large to the National Republican Convention. He has given freely of his means, time and influence to the advancement of the cause of his party and the honoring of his friends, but has asked nothing for himself, his only wish being that thee parlty he loved, the friends he deemed deserving and the cause to which he devoted his life might be advanced. Party fealty with Mr. Chenault is almost a passion. With no taint of treachery in his nature he is impatient with it or the semblance of it in others. With all this he is generous to those who differ with him and numbers among his closest friends members of opposing parties. Exam- ined from every point of view Mr. Chenault presents a line specimen of the faithful, frank, devoted partisan, yet the just, generous and considerate opponent. In his cocial life he shows the nobler and truer qualities of the gentleman. No condition of circumstances could make him less than a gentleman or force fron, his a word that stung, or an act that harmed. Courageous to recklessness, he is as tender in heart as a woman and as re- fined. With this broad, liberal, tender, yet intense nature, all mankind finds a place in his heart. Wishing that all shall have their rights and enjoy them under the law, he insists that he and his race shall have no legal enactments put into their Pathway toward American citizenship. DR. J. M. PETERS. On November 8, 1862, was born, at Harrodsburg, Ky., the Subject of our sketch, J. M. Peters, M. D.
