NATIONAL RACE CONGRESS PRE- A .SENTSREmM. 01 CLARA JO 5LY SON TRIAL. Washington, D. C, Jan. 27. The last and most difficult of the court cases against Negroes growing out of the Race riot July 21, 1919 has been tried. The National Race CongresB has stood ready to lend any assist ance possible' in all these cases. The Negro Lawyers of Washington, D. ,C. deserve great credit for the able professional services rendered free of charge. As you see from the published records of court proceed ings, Carrie Johnson was convicted of manslaughter. The National Race Congress has become responsible for her bond which was fixed at $500,000 and she is now at liberty. Attorney B. I Gaskins and his associates. Attorney B- M. Watson, (both Col ored) made a masterly defense and have entered a plea for a new trial, which we have . every reason to be lieve., will be granted. It Will take a large sum of money to fight this case to the finish and the Congress is determined to save this young and promising girl of 18 years from serving a sentence for a crime of which many believe her to be innocent We are therefore ask ing every member of the race every where to send to this office any amount they can contribute or in fluence friends to contribute. "Clara Johnson, 18 year-old Negro eirl. was found guilty of manslaught- eb by a Jury before Justice Gould, in connection with tne slaying ci Detective Sergeant Harry Wilson ,on July 21, 1919, during the race riots in the Capital. "Opon motion of District Attorney Laskey the court dropped the charge of first-degree murder, which the grand Jury had returned against William Johnson, father of the girl. Counsel for the defense were not al lowed to use this fact, however, to oppose the charge of the government that the girl shot the detective. Was Tried on Murder Charge. "The girl was tried on a charge of first-degree murder. The Jurors compromised on the manslaughter verdict. The girl was calm when the foreman of the jury announced the verdict, but later broke down and wept She was led from the court room by a matron. The trial began Monday in Crim inal Court No. 1, but here was diffi culty 4n obtaining a jury, and the taking of testimony was not begun until Tuesday afternoon. The prose cution, conducted by Assistant Dis trict Attorney Cromelln and Van Doren, charged that Detective Wilson was killed as he was entering the Johnson home in search of persons who had. fired into the street After an exchange of pistol shots the de tective fell, mortally wounded, and Wll'ianr Johnson and his daughter we e discovered, by other officers, hiding under a bed. . It was testified that an empty cartridge was found in a revolver in their home. To Ask New Trial. "The government's difficulty was to prove which, if any, of the defend ants fired the shot that killed Detec tive Wilson. Attorney B. L. Gas- kins and T. M. Watsons, who defended Clara Johnson, contended It was not -lara jonnson, conwmaea u was noi PSBib'e to Prove what Bnot 6truck "Counsel for the defense gave no tice of their intention to ask for a new trial." , FOUNDER'S DAT AT HAMPTON IN. 8TITUTE.

"Dr. Dillard,'' says the "Southern Workman," which is the official mag azine published by Hampton Insti tute, "has done more than pchapa any other Southern man to set forcer in motion tending to bring about better ra-e relations.

Governor Morrow will appoint a new board of Trustees for the West Kentucky In- dust'lal School In a short time, r.tv oorl',ng to advices from the capltol. The old board, which state Examiner June declares has held but one meeting since last &i(irch. will auto mTlea.!v he dissolved. I Text of the official report of the 'states examiner on the Industrial college has been received here. It covirs more than 20 typed pages, wltit recommendations. ' The report contains itemized lists of all receipts and expenditures by the school for the last two or -three years. . With the appointment of a new board, the Negro Industrial school will proba'i'- enter, upon a new reg ime. Its teachers, . whose ' salaries have been discounted and who have not been paid in months, will then be paid the sums due them. Receipts of the. college from June 1, 1918, to June 30, 1919, amountedi to $16, 624.49, the report shows. It received appropriations from the Mc Craken county court some time ago, according to the report, and from the county Board of Education. The College through Anderson, borrowed $2,015 from banks. One of its notes for more than a thousand dollars was due December 19. Last year the governor appointed R. S. Barnett of Paducah and I. H. Sloss of Princeton to succeed Dr. S. H. George, Colored, and C H. Lawrence, on the board of trustees. The third member of the board was Phil H. Brown of Hopkinsville. As the Stanley administration kept no records of its last appointments in the state, Governor Morrow could not learn when the terms of the various members expired. He has resolved to appoint an entirely new board, and will include one or more white men, according to information received here. "MYSTERIOUS" KLAN SEEK MEM BEKSUIP IN KNOXYILLE. Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 27.--The in famous organization (known as the Ku Klux Klan) that terrorize the country and intef erred .with the peace and harmony of the common wealth during the period of recon struction, years ago, and that has recently made its appearance in many southern states has announced through an alleged representative who fails to disclose his name in the announcement and advertisement appearing in one of the local daily papers of last Sunday, plans for launching a branch of the organiza tion in Knoxville. The Ku Klux Klan has so thor oughly gotten control in many states that many of the public Institutions are operated at their command. In one Georgia city the "knights" pa raded the street, garbed in their white lobes and their identity con cealed by masks over their heads and formed a long line as they marched through the business section under the glare of the lights. Suddenly every light in the city was out for a few minutes and when they came on again, not a sign of the long pro cession could be . seen. It is stated that although many hundreds of Ne groes stood along the line of march and watched the procession they were amused at the antics of the partici pants and not a sign of fear could be noted In any direction or on the part of any. The following words were spoken by Col. William J. Simmons, "Im perial wizard," who claims he has spent years of study in preparation for the formation of the organization, before a Birmingham, Ala., audience: "The Ku Klux Klan was here yes terday, it is here today and with the grace of God, it will be here forever. "I know moBt of you here , this afternoon because Birmingham is fa miliar territory for. me, as I lived in the Magic City for a good many years. Ali of you, I know have heard of the Ku Klux Klan. That is what we are here to discuss,1' said Colonel Simmons. "The Ku Klux Klan was first or ganized to protect our country from people or persons who were working for their own selfish benefit. This organization saved the United States from destruction during the Civil War. For that reign of unlawful ness which had the South in its control for a time would have spread to every section of the entire coun try if it had not been stopped. "Today the Ku Klux Klan Is keep ing a close watch ' Just the same as during the Civil war. This 4s not a social organization, but is one that every member has plenty of hard work to do. More so at the pres ent time because of existing con ditions of things which this organ ization believes they can help to remedy. - 1 "Some physical work Is required of the members of this organization, but the largest part of the work that is required of the numbers is brain work. A man has to t-e a good citizen of the city in which he lives, to be a member. He must put the American flag above every other flag In the whole world. "We are not out to 'get' anybody. But we are out to do all the good we can. We can still fight, though, and if you don't believe it, Just start something." According to the line of operation pursued by the Klan in other cities, and effort is made to taVe the en forcement of law into their own hands and to enforce rules which they deem expedient "for the good of the community" and the "perpetuation of white supremacy" through violent methods. In fact, the protests, lo the formation of such an organiza tion in many southern tut well as northern cities have come from the leading white citizens as well as Ne groes, who term the activities as those of a legalized mob. Just what reception will be accord ed the Ku Klux Klan organization in Knoxville and East Tennessee, where there is a strong sentiment for law ind-order and , where the inhabitants hold the law and officers superior to any elf-designated Klan Is not known, but it la believed that few, if any will endorse such an or ganization which is designated to r.tir up ill feeling between the races.

DuROIS IN STRIKING ADDRESS. Drive Stenographer From LIlH'Jty HalL New York, Jan. 27. Liberty Hall, the sanctum of Marcus Garvey and his followers, on 138 street was pack ed to overflowing last Sunday night to hear His Excellency, The Pres ident of the Negroes of all the World, reply to an alleged attack by Dr. W. E. DuBols in The Crisis. The Du Bois followers were conspicuous by their absence, excepting tne group con taining a stenographer who achieved notoriety by being threatened with ejection If they persisted In their unwelcome endeavors to take notes of Mr. Garvey's address. Mr. Garvey read that part of the December Crisis containing the alleged libel, and be gan drawing a parallel between his life and the life of DuBols. Amid great applause he charged that, wherees he and his poor parents were solely responsible for his edu cation the rich whites were respon sible for DuBois' Harvard and Berlin pilgrimage in search of lore and learning. He quoted from DuBois' Darkwater to show that DuBois de spises all poor and hufnble folks when DuBois said he hated the poor Irish and shabby Slav in the town of Great Barrlngton, his birthplace. and took his natural place with the well-kept, well-bread whites of the better class. He charged that Dr. DuBois was forced to Resign from Wilberforco because he could not get along with President Mitchell; that he has never fully accounted for the funds of tho Niagara Movement, and that his two literary Ventures, The Moon and The Horizon, were dismal financial failures. During his vehe ment denunciation of the eminent doctor he charged him several times with deliberate lies - in his articles; asserted that he was a tool of rich whites, and offered to debate him any time anywhere on race loyalty. Mr. Garvey stated that the Black Star Line is bringing suit for libel against the editor of The Crisis and that U. N. I. A. had answered him in The Negro World. Garveyites hissed every time Garvey called Du Bols' name. When Garvey finished his tirade against the doctor his ad- herrents gave him thunderous ap plause.
