LITTLE BROWN MAN CANNOT BECOME AMERICAN CITIZEN The United States supreme court ; handed down a decision Monday that ' barred the Japanese from becoming naturalized citizens of this country. The decision averred that the Japanr ese are not of the "white race" and .not being of the African race, they are barred from citizenship. The decision was bassed on an old statute that fixed naturalization at white people and Africans or those Of African descent. The decisionwill prove very gratifying to the people of California and other Pacific slope states as much trouble has threatened for several years there as the result of the increase in the Japanese population. for Congressman Clouse this time is onjy 243. Roughly speaking the democratic vote shrunk 100 votes and the republican 700 votes. In 1920 the majority for Taylor was 950; this time his majority was only 385.

It will be recalled that some weeks ago W. F. Edwards came here from Bradley county with J. A. Schulegan looking for a farm. Mr. Shulegan bought the John Jones farm and moved to it a few weeks ago. Mr. Edwards made a conditional deal with G. E. Harrison for the W. E. Reed farm laying two miles out on the Gras sy Cove road. . The price was $3,500 and the acreage was 137. For some reason Mr. Edwards did not close the deal at that time, but came here last week and did close the deal with Mr. Harrison for the same price as pre viously agreed upon. .Mr. Edwards is expected here with his family within a few days. NOVEMBER ELECTION, 1922, VOTE BY PRECINCTS EARTHQUAKE IN CHILI KILLS MORE THAN THOUSAND PEOPLE A tremendous tidal wave, which fol lowed a severe earthquake shock in southern Chili, caused the loss of over 1,000 lives. Some towns are practic ally wiped out by the great tidal wave. It swept the coast of Chili for 1,200 'miles and did great property damage besides the heavy loss of life. It is thought there must have been great cracks in the bed t f the Pacific ocean as the water receded and then returned in great tidal waves that engulfed all wharves, destroyed ves-, sels and crushed the houses and swept" many ot tnem to sea a snaiterea iniass.

' In a ' number of individual crops, Tennessee's per acre yield this year is considerably above the average for the United States. The yield of clover seed in this state was 1.8 bush els per acre while for the country as a whole it was 1.7. Tennessee's pea nut yield was 712 pounds against 66i for the United States.

The vote stood as follows: Davis Wyatt Vandever 22 11 Burgess 17 St What was the population of the District of Columbia in 1800? 3,aia Total 39 6a Two precincts tailed to hold an election : Genesis and Flat Rock. The failure to hold an election at Genesis was because the tickets did not reach there in time. At the request of the Chairman G. W. Davenport, the edi tor of the Chronicle mailed out all the tickets in time for the mail Friday, but the Genesis tickets failed to get through as they go to Rockwood and up the C. S. Road some 40 miles and then by star route about 20 miles. We know of no reason why an elec tion was not held at Flat Rock. No returns were received from that pre-j cmcL Over the State. The entire democratic ticket was elected as stated in our issue of last week. It seems probable that Gov. Taylor has been defeated by around 40,000 or close to the vote by which he von two years ago. Austin Peay for governor seems to have won over Taylor by a total vote that ts around 30,000 less than Roberts, defeated dem ocratic candidate for governor, lost two years ago. Senator McKellar has defeated New ell Sanders for the United States Sen ate bv around 60.000. Former Con gressman Cordell Hull has regained His old seat by around 3,000 to 4,000 majority over Congressman Clouse. Lon Scott lost his seat tor congress in the eighth district to Browning, whom he defeated two years ago. McReynolds has defeated Burnett in the third congressional district. The republicans now hold only their old battle ground the first and second congressioual districts. Th Nation. The republicans still hold both the Miss Robinson, the republican con gresswoman from Oklahoma, was de feated but a woman won for the con gressional seat for the state of Illinois at large. She will serve out her fath er's unexpired term, which will expire March 4. Senator Pomarene lost in Ohio to Fess, republican, but the state elected a democratic governor. In New York Smith, the democratic candidate for governor, won by nearly half a million votes. In Pennsylvania the democrats elected three congress men. In New Jersey, Edwards, democrat. who said he would make the state as "wet as the Atlantic ocean" won over Freylinghuyscn, republican on a dry platform. In Ohio the dry forces won over the wets by about 100,000 votes. Hitchcock, democrat, was defeated by a republican in Nebraska. In Mis souri the republican had hopes of de feating Jim Reed, so famous an op ponent of the league of nations and who was strongly opposed by Wood row Wilson, but Reed triumphed. The republicans lost their only con gressman in Virginia, the ninth dist net that they have held for many years. In Illinois Uncle Joe Cannon did not stand for re-election and the seat was won by a republican. Hiram Johnson was returned from California, as was McLean of Connec ticut. Senator Volstead, author of the Vol stead dry law was defeated by a demo cratic preacher who is said to be even dryer than Mr. Volstead. Owing to democratic triumphs of senatorial candidates in Michigan and other states, it is claimed the effort to oust Newberry will come to the front again. 1 The wet forces that urge a modi fication of the Volstead act have won more largely than the dry forces and the wet and dry question may prove of great importance in the coming congress. Iowa seems to be the only state where everything went republican. The republican majorities there are about as two years ago. Brookhart for the senate has a big lead of around 150,000. The soldier bonus won where ever year average of 86,660,000 something over 14,000,000 pounds above the av erage vrop. The crop in the United States, however, is nearly 50,000,000 pounds below the average. Of the states that may be regarded as com petitors of Tennessee, Kentucky fell bout 21,000,000 pounds below the av erage, North Caroline about 1,000,000 below and Ohio about 37,000,000 below, while Virginia rose above the average by about 17,000,000 pounds and South Carolina by about 2,000,000. The estimated production of corn in Tennessee is 74,405,000 bushels, com pared with 90,713,000 bushels last year and a five year nvcrag-c of- 86,400,000 bushels. In the United States the es timated production is 2,806,942,000 bu. compared with 3,080,372,000 bushels in 1921 and 2,830,942,000 bushels, average the past five years. The white potato crop of the state is estimated at 2,856,000 bushels, com pared with 1,820,000 bushels last year. The United States crop is estimated at 433,905,000 bushels, compared with 346,823,000 bushels in 1021. The estimate of sweet potato pro duction for Tennessee is 3,864,000 bu., compared with 4,;cvxo bushels last year. In the United States the pro duction is 110,359,000 bushels. In 1921 it was 08,660,000 bushels. On account of dry weather, only about 25 percent of the usual amount of fall plowing has been done.
