thu! of par- j

From Virginia j
came most of .
I the sett lora of the western state, j
I nod with them these pioneers i
* brought Virginia institutions !
t und Ideals. It was not until j
j 17r.(> that the llrst authentic t
I Journey was made by a white j
f mau into contrai parts of the j
I region afterwards called Ken- ?
? tucky.
1 Further explorations ahowed
\ that this territory held two 1m
\ portant attractions for settlers.
*, The llrst was the great fertility
? of what was called the Bluo
? Grass region. The so-called
i blue grass, from which thia
t stato ls nicknamed tho "Blue
* Grass Stnte" ls In no wise pe
I cullar to Kentucky.
? Tho second Inducement for
j settlers was the fact that there
\ were no Indians living in this
1 region. It was Inter found that
7 many roving bands of savngos
I crossed tho Ohio from the north
T and soroly harassed the early
I colonists until Clark's expedl

t etiecked tholr Invasions. In fact,
j tho mime Kentucky ls probably
? derived from tho Iroquois word
. kentkn-ke, meaning "hunting
* land." Another interpretation
I Is "dark and bloody ground,"
j but this is u??b??tm incorrect.
; The main highways of trnv?l
j at that time were Daniel

Washington. Juno 26.-The racial
composition of tho population of tho
United States in 1920, as announced
to-night ?ty tho census bureau, shows
tho country to contain 94,822, I'M
white persons, 10,463,013 negroes.
242,959 Indians, 1 1 1,025 Japanese.
61,686 Chin?se and 9,4 85 o thors. Tho
Japanese race exceeds by fur tho rate j
of growth in the last ton years of all
other classes.
Unoilicial estimates of tho Increase
in the number of Japanese in the
United States, particularly on the Pa
cific coast, were horno out in tho of- ?
tidal tabulation, which revealed a
rate of expansion of 5 3.9* per cent
during the decade of 1910-20. Cali !
fornia absorbed 30,596 ot tho total ,
growth of 38,808 Japanese in this j
period. On Jan. I, 1920, there wore,
71,952 Japanese In California, The
remainder or tho increase was dis
tributed largely in Ibo State of Wash- ;
ington, where 17,388 make their per-1
manon! homes. Oregon has 4,151,!
Utah. Colorada and New York have
between two and three thousand
The while population showed only
u 16 per cont expansion for the dec
ade, and lite negro 0.5 per cent. Holli
lin? indian and Chinese groups dwin
dled S.li per cent and 13.8 per c>>:it
respectively. The growth in the whi "
population was considerably less titan
the rate for Ibo previous decade,
which was 22.3 per cent. This (h
dine. iiu> slaloment said, was ciao
principally lo tho inark?d reduction
in immigration during tho war. Va
estimate based on tho excess of births
over deaths und on the excess of im
migration over emigration showell ii
difference by only a small fraction of
I per cent from the total whites eau
mern ted.
The greatest numerical Increase ir? ,
Ibo white population was shown ill '
the East, North and Central di vt- j
Sloes, embracing the States of Ohio, 1
Indiana. Illinois, Michigan and Wis-:
cousin, whero the increase was :>,- j
01 1.663. In the South Atlantic and I
Hast and West and South Central
portions tho whites proved a normal j
increase of 3,586,107.
The rate of increase in tho negro ?
population, which was not percept!-;
bly affected by immigration or emi
gration, was the lowest on record,
according to the statemnt.
Evidence of the emigration </f the ?
negro to the North and West was (
found in tho figures showing nearly ?
three-fourths of the Increase in the
negro population, or 472,41 8 of the,
635,250 gain, In these sections. A |
growth of only 162.832, or about one j
fourth, was reported for tho S'ont h, j
despite the fact that 85 per cent of .
tho total negro population is still be- I
low tho Mason-Dlxon line. The per- ;
sentage increase of tho negroes in the
West was 55.1; in tho North 43.3 per;
cent, and in tho South 1.96 per cent. |
'Michigan, with 60,0S2. negroes, led
all States in percentage of increase,
with 2f>l percent. Illinois and Ohio,^
ivith (ncreasos of 67.? per cent, show- j
ed further evidence of the Northward I
movement of negroes. Pennsylvania's .
negro population growth was 46.7
per cent.
Decrease in the Indian race in the ?
ten-year period was probably due In .
part, il was said, lo (lie enumeration
as Indians, in 1910 and as whites in
1920. of persons having only slight i
traces of Indian blood.

In Houso-Outlaws Hoer for Medici
nal Purposes on Prescription.
Washington, June 23.-The Wil
lis-Campbell anti-beer bill, with mi
nor amondinonts, was roported to
day by thc House judiciary commit
ten. Tho rules^oommittee is expected '<
to give it right ot way in the Houso!
within the next few days.
Aside from "outlawing beer for !
medicinal purposes, the bill would ?
limit to one hundred lu ninety days1
the number of prescriptions for wills- :
key to be issued by a physician, and !
would authorise tho prohibition au- j
thorlties to stop the manufacture and
importation of liquor until the pres-'
ont stocks held in this country have1
been reduced. It also would extend!
tho Volstead enforcement act to Ha
waii and tho Virgin Islands.
The bill embraces the uncontro
verted sections of tho Volstead sup-j
plomental act and was introduced In
that form as an emergency legisla- !
lion to become effective before thc j
internai revenue bureau could issue '
beer regulations under a ruling by
former Attorney General Palmer.
Mr. Volstead announced that the
contested sections of his bill would

Laurens, June 21t.-?Claude Owens, '
a young man of Young's township,
was late yesterday afternoon convict
ed of manslaughter with rccouunen- J
dation ?o mercy, on the charge of i
killing his father, Allen Owens, last]
fall at a cane mill on the premises of j
the Owens home. Notice of intention |
to ask for a new trial was given by
counsel for the defense, but the in
tention to appeal was abandoned th?3
afternoon and .Judge Gary sentenced
young Owens to serve five years on j
tho chain gang or in tho State peni
Tho homicide occurred last Qcto
ber, and tho plea of the defendant as I
made on the stand was that he was j
attacked by his fther with a drawn j
knife, and that he shot to save him
self. The young defendant and his
father, it was brought out during the ;
trial of the case, which consumed a
day and a half, had been on bad j
terms for some time and often quar- ?
reled, according to the testimony of j
Mrs. Owens, wife and motlier, who
recited various instances of clashes !
between father and son.
There was testimony on the side
of the defense to the effect that Allen
Owens was generally disagreeable
and often abusive to his wife and
children. On the day of Ibo killing,
Oct. 17, the elder Owens, it was al
leged, was at work at his cane mill,
when the son and Adolphus Mostet
ler came up and began a conversa
tion. The son. il was alleged, offered
his father a drink. Ile refused il and j
this seems to have started a quarrel
that ended In tho fatal shooting of
thc older man.
