Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - March 10, 1921, Williamsport, Indiana The review Republican the review Republican one Dollar and fifty cents per year leading paper in Warren county j. H. Stephenson editor. Review established in 1891 Cle standing and All the Mother Wita it in j. It i j to Iowa of his race he with him. And May Republican established in an epoch closes these eight years will be chronicled in the history of the nation not to much As two of several democratic administrations As the spectacular the Garish and yet almost mystical wilsonian epoch. Quot so much did a single personality stand out from a party strangely called democratic. So much was a chief executive of a Republic More a King than a president. So much did partisan allegiance take on a worshipping it genuflect ing aspect. Andrew Jackson was a Man of a dominating inflexible will. Yet he was in every sense a Democrat. Woodrow Wilson was forcible compelling impatient alike of opposition and advice. But his manner was More that of Richelieu than of old Hickory. His masterful Ness was of the secret hidden ways not of the Blunt open habit of authority of Grover Cleveland. Retirement from the scene of politics four years ago would have left Wilson and his courtiers with something of the cloak of greatness. The first administration had performed services of notable Merit it chose to ask endorsement for All it had done bad As Well As Good. And curiously it demanded this approval upon the ground that quot he kept us out of War quot though it knew that every condition every direction of Fate was making War inevitable. Re elected the administration became quot shut up in measureless combat quot the War caught it unprepared in spirit As physically. Too Many weeks and months its aim had been the gratification of Power and of the stomach. Though the evidence was not Clear the downfall of Wilson ism was to be seen from the hour the nation declared that a state of War existed with Germany. The evidence was the muddling at Washington the waste the grab for boils the seizure of extraordinary privilege the unbearable conceit the vague rhetorical flourishes the ornate Argos Ying to Europe the Assumption of illimitable Dominion at Paris. The democrats quot have been at a great feast and stolen the their satisfaction in that achievement wrote quot Finis quot to their Hook. Thereafter the country nourished but one desire one determination to be rid of them. And so they go pathetic symbols of failure. They could have been so much. They have been unfaltering by so Little. There is no moaning at the bar As Uliey it out to sea. The truly grateful amid the tumult and the shouting Over the change of administrations one is Likely to miss the note of deep Heartfelt gratitude. But it is there nevertheless. It is pressed by those thousands who have served their Uncle Samuel under the captains hip of postmaster general Burleson. This Burleson person was of the Breed of quot hard boiled quot Smith of notorious memory. His idea of authority was to create fear to Institute the Nightmare where Pride and Contentment had been to treat morale As an encumbrance. It was his Public Joy to show How his department had amassed a surplus of dollars. But As he revealed his character one saw that it was also his Joy to nag at postal clerks and postmen to make himself hated by them because of the damage he could do to their spirit. He was not merely opposed to providing the members of the postal service with a living wage during the period of excessively High living hut he was opposed As Well it seemed All too Clear to their considering them Selve citizens of their own country endowed by reason of birth with the rights guaranteed by the tion. Workers under the Burleson regime were forced into spending their hours of rest at All sorts of jobs for they were conform to silly Needles and tyrannical rules. They were forced of them to throw up their jobs and to seek a decent self respecting living in private employment. The postal people do not know what kind of a postmaster general will Hays will make. But they know that no change can be made now that will not be a change for the better. And so throughout he service the words Are quot thank Ood for the end of prove of the manner in which we manage our own affairs the logical course would be to Send them Back to the countries from whence they came. They May find conditions More to their liking in the hotbeds from whence they fled. Foreigners who Are willing to become productive assets in this country Are Welcome. Dangerous liabilities Are not state of the nation in the face of the collapse of affairs in much of Europe let us pause and consider the United states is producing 60 per cent of the world s Cotton 62 per cent of its Copper 66 per cent of its Oil 50 per cent of its pig Iron and steel 85 per cent of its automobiles 75 per cent of its agricultural machinery 50 per cent of the ships and 75 per cent of All the meat packing products. Hard times compared with the rest of the world quot there Ain t no such Ani mile quot in America. Let no one worry Over will Hays As postmaster general. The criticism that has been made of his appointment has been made by those who hate him because of his political achievements and who would criticise the appointment of anyone Ielse with equal rancor and bitter Ness. Or. Hays has has been Active i in politics it is True but he has likewise achieved things there which prove him capable of handling pretty nearly any department of the government. He has the Intelli cons Titu j gence Force and Genius to put things Over and a department that has been abused missed and run Down As has the Post office department could a the sole purpose of making hardly be committed to better hands ends meet. They were forced to the enemies of Woodrow Wilson draw a Long breath of Relief now that he is out of office Safe from the fear of assassination and in improving health. It is their wish that he live Many Many years in the enjoyment of Domestic happiness and the cultivation of those Scholastic and academic pursuits for which he is so peculiarly qualified and eminently endowed. If they also wish that he May live to realize and acknowledge the errors of his administration they Are perhaps unkind but none the less human. Tion held Forth. The Climax came when the toe of the Public s Boot landed on the party s seat of per Sua Sivility. Just 2,585 second lieutenants Are wanted by the army. It s doubtful whether there Are that Many men in the country who. Are willing to be the quot goats quot of the army. A red blooded american is the Man who feels like punching the nose of the fellow who sobs with sympathy for Germany and give him something to cry about. Terre haute s negro population showed an increase of Over 60 per cent at the last census while the White population had an increase of Only 10 per cent. Jazz that is a Good idea Cabinet members taking their chairs with them when they go out of office but it is More important that they take their old shoes. There is some talk about quot the original Harding if we May butt in with an opinion it is that the original Harding Man is a woman. When a girl buys a new skirt and insists upon having six inches of hem turned in she in t sure Short skirts will remain in style Long. If the masses Are Ever trampled upon a thing some always seem to fear it will be their own fault. The masses have the most feet. California s quot love pirate quot says getting married is easy. Nothing startling in his statement. Any kind of trouble is easy to get into. It s no use a orking yourself to get Rich. Wealth acquired that Way will be Over balanced by the Bills of he doctor and undertaker. Thus emphasizing the uselessness of j a last year s Birdsnest. March first was neither lion nor Lamb and yet we would t like to Call it monstrosity. Increased Railroad fare can t keep the office seekers away from Washington. Y wild geese Are going North though they had been sent for. As wonder just How Large the 1921 crop of postmasters will be feet to dream you Bathe your feet do notes trouble in collecting Money which is due you. To dream of Largi or deformed feet foretells a journey which will Cost you Many tears it scratch the Bottom of your feet do a notes treachery and flattery. To have no feet at Allis an evil Omen it for tells some great calamity. Cold be foretells a quarrel with a Friend. Great peat bog. Smolen Island near Kristians Sund Forway is a Flat spot of land possessed of numerous areas of peat bog. It is doubtful whether there is any where a better location for the Prodo tion of peat in Large quantities. Poor Cuhl trp Clark i Here is that in connection with tie death of Champ Clark which is extremely pathetic. A Veteran in Congress and his party s Leader there for Many years he lie passed on. a a n As his party retires from Power. And i i to add u touch of tie tragic to the Hitu Atbin. Liis death occurred just As he himself was to retire from Congress As a result of the defeat he suffered last november. It is said that or. Harding had it in mind to Lake care of 3r. Clark by appoint the movie censorship Bills have been killed by the legislature and in the Humble judgment of this a behind All the High moral talks and pious arguments of their proponents there loomed up the suspicion that the movement s chief object was to create a number of Good salaried positions with no particular work attached. And just at present a the order Chargi tf5 no one uii less it is Jeorge Washington has Ever gone into the presidency with a larger Stock of Good will 10 his credit than has Warren g. Harding. He has carried an election with record making pluralities. His simplicity his humanity have a on him High favor with a people Loving above All others men in their own likeness. He has picked a Good Cabinet and indicated sound intentions. As the starting Gates lift the advantages Are All that any new president could Pray for. Yet Large quantities of Good will cannot serve or. Harding As the insurance for a successful administration. He must Deal with heaped up problems with such Wisdom that though Many citizens will be Hurt by his decisions the majority will not. He must convince an impatient nation that As Rome was not built in a Day neither can All its burdens be lifted and its questions answered in or. Marshall left the vice presidency with the love and Good will of everybody who would rather smile than swear or weep. He neither took himself nor his position too seriously yet his humor was of such Quality that it did not make a joke of the office or a Monkey of the Man who held it. Ing him As minority member of one suspicion of that character is enough of tie Federal commissions but this to kill pretty nearly any Bill attention would not Liang compensated Linin Foi tie blow to his Pride which was administered last fall a Hen his own District renounced iii i for another. Or. Clark was a victim of a broken heart. He had suffered poignantly since 1912 when after securing a majority of the delegates in the democratic National convention he failed under the two thirds Rule at the moment William j. Bryan whose state had instructed him to support Clark threw his instructions into the discard and cast his support to Woodrow Wilson. The disappointment to Clark was a bitter and terrible one and one from Wlinich lie never recovered. And when to this was added the humiliation of november 2, his proud spirit quite gave Way and the old roman tottered to his Tomb. The career of Champ Clark is one of the most melancholy in the history of american politics the presidency within his grasp and snatched from him by a Georgia judge has ruled that it is perfectly Legal to steal liquor in that state. But let no Indiana thief proceed on the theory that the larceny of liquor in Indiana in t crime. It certainly is Here and if the thief is caught in the act the punishment is death. Still or. Hoover As Secretary of Commerce won t be Able to restrict us to one spoonful of sugar or to make us use War flour. Overseer Voliva insists that the world is Flat but he does t spend any time looking for the jumping off place. Colonel Watterson says the dry Law is making hypocrites. It has also Hurt the Sale of the hypocritical Clove. There is one instance where disarmament worked All right. It was when the women discarded Long hatpins. President Harding s inaugural address was easy to read and to understand. We Are not so sure that we could have done much better. Fur Coats have been marked Dov a so much in Price that the muskrats foxes Martens Mink cats and rabbits must feel cheap. Well if business has been waiting on the inauguration let it go ahead and show us there is something in psychology. Now that the inauguration is Over the next big National event is the last Day on which to pay your income tax. Twenty four hours. He must steer a treachery of a purported Friend course in the world that inconsistently is both sick of War and Bumpious to the Point of easily making War. There Are party followers to Comfort a Hen government jobs must be abolished. There Are old advisers to listen to with patience and to keep Friendly when the advice in his judgment is of poor Quality. There is Congress which escaped from wilsonian Over lordship will want to grab All the reins As slaves emancipated sometimes have done. Not least troublesome of All to Deal with is that weakness of human nature which As in the Case of his predecessor brings to a Man in High office the ineradicable belief that instead of being a Little lower than the Angels he is a Good Deal More. So while or. Harding enters the White House to the sound of great cheering cheerfulness cannot All be Bis. His work is Cut out for him and that piece of work is As High and As thick through As the Rocky mountains. May courage and then renunciation at the hands of his Home folks and finally death just As the party he so bitterly opposed during his whole career came Back into Power As the result of a sweeping and overwhelming Triumph at the polls. Poor or. Clark a better and a brighter Finis should have been written to his chapter. To the Side of those who ground their Teeth with rage when they read the headlines quot Roosevelt to be assistant Navy Secretary quot this paper wants to assure them that this Roosevelt is of the Genius Theodore not Franklin. Rivalry among bandits to see which gang can make the biggest haul is making the game interesting. Turning democrats out of office at this time of year is not so bad. Spring is near and they need fresh air. This country still continues to buy eggs imported from China and to contribute funds and food to relieve the awful famine which is killing millions of people in that country. It s a mad world my masters. Punishment to fit some people advocate jail sentences for those who conspire against the government. But it is doubtful if that is the Best policy or even one that will produce satisfactory results. Drastic action is necessary in such cases but it should be action that will relieve us of the presence of the plotter instead of merely depriving him a temporarily of his Liberty. In nearly every Case these plotters come to us uninvited from some for eign Shore. Since they do not a fifty four years and a fraction is the average age of the new Cabinet. As to the average Girth measurement we have seen no statement but it will not be Large on account of will Hays. Still the fact that the Man responsible for that awful wreck at Porter quot did t intend to do it quot does t bring Back to life the forty dead or heal the wounds of scores of injured. Many things happened during the eight years the Wilson adm Nistra the new administration will probably not be quot too proud to fight quot but it will be careful not to get into one. Retiring democrats will need considerable time to get Over the habit of putting their feet on the desk. There is much talk about quot master minds quot but master minds Are not scarce. Every Home has one. As Secretary of state or. Hughes will talk when he has something to say. He is that kind of Man. Axes and taxes Are rhyming words that make a fellow involuntary reach for his Adam s Apple. It s a Relief to write president Harding. Quot president elect quot is an awkward designation.
