CAPITOL CULLIVOS N -
Washington, April 15. The two
features of President Harding's ex
ecutive order,- summarily dismissing
the. Director of the Bureau of En
graving and Printing and thirty
other officials and experts, with,
which the public Is chiefly concerned
are: ''' .'
e First-; The manner In which the
removals were made without warn
ing and without charges, thus sub
jecting them to suspicions which
tended to blacken their characters
and bring disgrace upon them and
upon their families.
Second, The plain violation of the
civil service law, which provides that
no one In the classified service may
be removed except upon a charge in
writing, and permitting the accased
to reply thereto. It is an unprece
dented aasanlt upon the policy and
the principle of the civil service sys
tem in which the Republican party
has always professed to believe..
It Is contended that President Har
ding was clearly within' his rights
when - he ordered these dismissals.
To this. Senator Caraway (Dem.,
Ark.), who introduced resolutions,
one requesting the President to give
his reasons, and one for a commit
tee of Investigation, replied:
"The President Is not above the
law,' although for the argument sake
I m-y concede that he may disgrace
and remove these men from the serv
ice, and they have.no legal redress;
he may exercise the authority vested
in him add override the statute, but
in doing so, it he acts without Just
cause., he will more 'disgrace himself
in the high office he holds than he
will disgrace these humble citizens
whose rights to make an honest liv
ing he has sought to destroy."
Democratic politicians are not dis
posed to critize the President if he
simply removes Democratic office
holdars and replaces them with Re
publicans, provided the purpose is
avowed and it is done openly' and
legally. The criticism comes when
it is done In a manner that tends to
dostroy character and assassinate
reputations. The 'failure to give
reasons or file charges was followed
by the publication of stories in the
press which placed the discharged
officials under suspicion of various
forms of .fraud and dishonesty,
and they still number millions of
Believers in civil service, however,
people throughout the country, can
find no Justification for the arbitrary
removal of these officials without
charges, whatever may have been the
motive. Their position is that the
departments of tbe government are
either to be run under the civil ser
vice merit system, or the offices are
to be filled by political partisans un
der the old spoils system which re
sulted in the barter and. sale of ap
pointments and the worst forms of
political corruption until public
sentiment was almost unanimous In
getting rid of it.
The announcement that other Bu
reaus are. to be "Hardlngized" in 'a
similar manner has produced a
panicky feeling in all departments,
and the fear that thousands of effi
cient employees of the merit system
will., be forced to make way for
"Harding Republicans" under a gen
eral enthronement of the spoils sys
tem, resulting in a general impair
ment otthe government service. '
The morale of the service would
necessarily 'be destroyed if employees
felt that they were Vorklng for the
Republican party insteal of the gov
Harding's Dismissal Order Denounc
ed m Heartless '
The strongest criticism of Presi
dent Harding's executive order dis
missing tbe Director of the Bureau
of Engraving and Printing and thirty
other officials there were made by
Senator Caraway (Dem., Ark.), in
the Senate and Representative Byrns
(Dem., Teun.) in the House. Among
other things, Senator Caraway satdr
"Men with service ranging all the
way from 20 to 39 years, services
that had ' been acceptable to both
Republican and Democratic adminis
trations, men agalst whom no charge
has ever been made, either of in
efficiency or of dishonor, were remov
ed from their positions and dis
charged from the public service by an
Executive order. I venture the as
sertion that no President In tbe his
tory of this country since civil ser
vice has become the law of this na
tion ever dared so autocratically to
disregard the law and disregard the
rights of human beings as did the
President by this Executive order. '
"The law is plain. It required tbe
Pesldent and he is not above the
law to follow, a certain procedure
under which these men could at least
have protected their reputation by
denials. The President Ignored that.
He ignored this law with the Attor
ney General iu conference with him.
Therefore there is no reason, if
there was any knowledge of the law
in the Attorney General's office, why
the President should have run
j roughshod over the rights of these

More Comfortable than the Old, and
Stylish to the Last Degree!
Because Queen Quality "lasts" fit perfectly,
there's comfort in Queen Quality shoes from
the first day you wear them.
And there's style in the hand-tailored patterns;
there's beauty in every line; there's the requisite
lightness, flexibility and shapeliness demanded in
each type of shoe.
Truly the Qjieens of Shoe Qiiaity
'Tis so easy to make your choice wherever
Queen Quality shoes are sold, or there's a
quality about each style that sets it apart from
common shoes; a distinction that your friends
will recognize; a fitting ease and grace that are
reflected in your walk and dress.

"Fit" is the great secret of Queen Quality
shoemaking. Without it your shoes will
become shapeless; they'll wrinkle and pinch'
and soon wear out. Queen Quality shoes are
made and sold "for the right purpose, to the
right wearer, in the right fitting, for the right
price." They are the shoes for you.

men and wholly disregard the law of
tbe land.. - '
"I think the gravest hurt is to the
public morale. When men and wom
en lose confidence In the Justice of
their Government and In the men
who are charged temporarily with
the administration of law they have
been done a great injury. I do not
care how a man may apologize in his
heart for tbe administration; he may
assert that the President was within
his rights; but I r that there Is
no man with any human kindness in
his heart who can read that order
and not know that it was an in
human order, and no man with any
knowledge of tbe law of his land
can read It and not know that t was
a violation of the law by the Presi
dent when he Issued it.
. "There Is a little word called
honor.' It Is as binding upon the
President of these United States as
upon the humblest citizen of this
land; and it is all tbe more regretta
ble when the President shall forget
it and deny Justice to men ' upon
wnom be has the "power to' Inflict an
Irremediable Injury. ,
"There were four women who
went down under this drastio and
unjustifiable order of the President,
women who bad gone Into the bureau
years and years ago, who had tolled
upward against all the obstacles that
have been placed in tbe way of
women's advancement In public em
ployment through all the years, who
had kept their reputations pure, who
had perfected their efficiency and
had finally come to places of re
sponsibility and places that paid them
well. Without an opportunity to be
heard, without opportunity to utter
one word In their own defense, and
now with the statement from the
Secretary of the Treasury that there
was not a charge against them, they
were. all dismissed from the public
service. They were turned out, their
reputations destroyed and the
(Washington) Post says, and it
speaks for tbe administration, or al
ways has, that the President does
not Intend ever to tell why he dis
missed and disgraced, these women.
"I. Imagine that the women will
also .' notice that not only did the
President dismiss these women but
filled their places with men. This
administration shuts the door of
hope In the face of women, who
through long years of faithful serv
ice had tolled upward to places of
responsibility. They were summarily
discharged and disgraced, and four
good Republicans whoa reputation
will pass muster even with the Jun
ior Senator from Oklahoma, are giv
en th,elr places, and these four good
Republicans are men." . ,
Eepresentatlve Byrna, said In part:
"I have made inquiry, and I under
stand that there were a number of
Republicans, pousibly a majority
among those who were dismissed.
The very tact that these officials were
retained by the last administration
as chiefs of divisions la conclusive
proof that a Democratic administra-1
tion did not play politics In the civil
service. . '
"What right dU the Tresidont,
have to abolish by executive order
positions created by an a;t of Con
gress aud create new positions
which he can fill without regard to
civil service. What right has be to
destroy a civil service status of these
officials by abolishing their offices?
If he can do this then no civil service
employee is sate.
"The removal of these officials is
an outrage on decency. It ' la a
blow to administrative discipline. It
la a strike at governmental effici
ency. It Is an under-the-belt, knock
out blow at economy and morale."
