President Harding In Inaugural Address Declares Disarmament Move And World Court But Spurns Super-Government Of League Nations Right Wing Opposition Leader Refuses to Accept Olive Branch Held Out BECOME UNITED STATES' CHIEF EXECUTIVES TODAY i HOADLEY SUPPORTS N. R. SUB-AMENDMENT (Special to Htrild) KI1MO.VTOK, Mar. 3. Hoadley, Oiotoks, ei-leader of tiece united opposition, snd un- vronnad king ot this year's left wing opposition on Thursday turned his i In the legislature against his former comrades-in-arms, and sought to blow up A. F. Ewlng's original resolution on the return of Alberta's, natural resources. With Machlartlllan words of peace, Mr. Hoadley held out to Mr. Ewing. the right wing- opposition leader, what purported to be an olrre branch in j the form of a new compromise resolu-i tion worded: "Tost this legislative; isemily reiterates its demand for prompt restoration ot Its natural re- but Mr. Ewing and his." fol- lowers flatly rejected the .overture and clnng to the original retolntioa which protests nialnst Alberta's nat- ural resources being unjustly with- to be exploited by any political: party at Ottawa. Another Offer j In quick succession, Mr. Iloadlert ilisn proposed to "Mr. Ewlog that, ln-j of tbs compromiie resolution, I hs tcoept the resolution on tho sub- jeet adopted unanimously hy the en-1 legislature last year.

When wing opposition members naally declined this proposal, Mr. Hoarfley both kid rewmd debate the sub- ject, coning out flstl? of compromise by i G. Turgeon. government, RibMonc. C. R. Mitchell, acting premier, lias already signified that tho govern- ment Is willing to drop its amendment accept Mr. Turgeon's motion which is, therefore, virtually a, tor- measure. Effect of Opposition Tactics The net effect" of Mr. Hoadley's tnanpeuvermg of course, was to put tha regular opposition in the legisla- ture the position of mulishly cling- ing to a resolution which may breed discord at Ottawa in a discussion of tha return of the natural resources. On the other hand, had Mr. Ewing and the right wing opposition group accepted tho proposal, it would at once have put Mr. Hoadley in the ob- vious position of the dominant force In the opposition, the originator of a resolution which had virtually heeu forced on the right wing and accept- ed by the goyernment. The government, quick to take ad- 'vantage of the rift in the opposition, hacked up Mr. Hoadley, to the limit. 'both Mr. Turgeoa and Mr. Mitchell saying that they would withdraw their two separate amendments to Mr. Swing's motion if Mr. Ewins would accept Mr. Hoadley's. James Weir, Nantori, spoke support- ing Mr. Turgeon's, now tlie govern- ment's compromise resolution, while Mrs. R. C. Price, (nee Miss Roberta supported Mr, Ewing'a original resolution in (her speech. J. 'It. Kemmls, opposition. Plnchsr Creek, spoke in support of Mr. Swing's resolution also.

These in- cluded a cavalry escort of four troops for tiie president in his ride from his hotel to the capitol and theuce to the White House. v This little cavalcade contrasted .strangely with the great military and X'Wl processions which have attend- ed, inaugurations lor half a century cr more. Besides the cavalry the con- gressional committee also had arrang- ed to have several companies ot ma- rines in full dress uniform at the capitol as a guard of honor and for the presence of the marine president's played "The Star Spangled Banner" immediately after Mr. Harding had takeu the oath or. office.
