Long, Chester I., lawyer and United States senator, was born in Perry county, Pa., Oct. 12, 1860, a son of Abraham G. and Mary L. Long. In 1865 the family removed to Daviess county, Mo., and in 1879 to Paola, Kan. Chester received an academic education, after which he studied law, and in 1885 was admitted to the bar. He at once located at Medicine Lodge, the county seat of Barber county, where he built up a good clientage and became an active factor in politics as a Republican. In 1889 he was elected state senator to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of F. C. Price, who had been elected district judge, and in 1894 was elected to represent the Seventh district in Congress. Two years later he was defeated for reëlection by Jerry Simpson, but was elected to the 56th, 57th and 58th Congresses.
