SUPERINTENDENTS RACE Damaging Facts SUbmitted to SlioW That Gullion Is Double r f Dealing if To the Democrats of Kentucky My opponent Mr E A Gullion Is greatly disturbed over the fact that the voters all over the state are find ing out that he is trying to sail into the State Superintendents office ua der false colors and that evidences of doubledealing are rapidly accumu lating against him Many persons who Knew the rela tionship existing between Mr Gullion and certain persons in the city of Lexington who are known to be un friendly to the normal school movement were suspicious from the time of his annorncement that there was a nigger in the woodpile This feeling now seems to be wellnigh universal Recognizing the great popularity of the normal rchool movement in the state and being conscious that the people generally are speculating en the fact that his candidacy has from the first b en strongly indorsed by those who opposed the normal school bill my opponent comes out in the circularletterssons opposing normal schools In his efforts to deceive the public he goes on further and deliberately misrepre sents his attitude in the fight for state normal schools and ingeniously con ceals his real mission in Frankfort last winter He has the audacity to claim that he spent 50 days of the day session of the last legislature in Frankfort in the special interest of the state normal school bill and that he did everything in his power to se cure its passage adding that certain promtingprovethissentation by persons who were not in position to know whether he worked takingleiswere on any committees which had this bill under discussion In order that the voters of the state may know that my opponent is at tempting to deceive them in this mat ter I submit below

that I rio not remember his appearance be fore that committee on any subject though he may have done so I attended nearly all the meetings of that committee and remember distinctly the appearance of Hon R W Miller and others in the interest of the nor mal bill but do not recall any part that Mr Gullion may have taken in the question- I remember the appearance of Pres James K Patterson in the
