Washington, April 15.-A resolution
looking to the impeachment of As
sistant Secretary Post of the labor
department, for his attitude toward
the deportation of radicals, was intro
-duced today by Representative Koch,
lRepubiican, Kansas, after a confer
once with Republican leaders.
The resolution would direct tlhe ju
diciary committee to investigate
charges made against Post by Chair
man Johnson of the immigration coin
mittee and others, and if the evidence
warranted to report a resolution pro
The measure was referred to the
house rules committee which will de
elde whether it shoul dbe inade a spe
clal order of business before the house.
There was no indication when the
rules committee would act.
Mr. Hoch intended to present his
resolution when the house first con
venied and arose to do so, but Repre
sentative Mondell, the Republican
leader, told .Mr. loch that he "would
not do that now," and the Kansas
member temaporarily abandoned his
plan. Later lie conferred with Repub-I
lican leaders and decided to offer the
Mr. iloch's resolution follows:
"Whereas, it has been charged on
the floor of the house by the chairman
of the committee on immgiration and
liattiralization and by other members
of the house, that Louis F. Post, at;
sistant secretary or labor, has, in the
discharge of his official duties, and in
the exercise of his authority, actual
or assumed, flagrantly abused his
power in connection with the deporta
tion of alien enemies of the country;
that he has, in his oflicial capacity
!u rsued toward those who would de
stroy by force and violence the gov
erinent or its listitutions, a policy
subverse of the welfare, the peace and
the dignity of the United States, h.,
has in any unwarranted manner sub
imitted to the demands of those seek
ing to prevent the deportation of allen
enemies; that by a flagrant and un
warranted abuse of power, he has hin
dered, delayed and prevented the de
portation of allen enemies, who by act
and counsel would undermine and
overthrow the government of the
United States, and
"Whereas, said offenses alleged to
have been committed by the said Louis
F. Post, if true, high crimes and mis
demeanors against the United States.
"Therefore, be it resolved, that the
committee on the judiciary be directed
to inquire into the truth or falsity of
said charges against the said Loui1;
F. Post, assistant secretary of labor,
and if it finds that said charges are
true, to report its findings to the
house, together with a resolution pro
viding for the impeachment of the saId

the conduct of the invest-igation lhere
in pirovidled the saidl committee shjili
have power to sendi for persons and
pap~ers, to take testimony and to comi
pei the attendance of witnesses.''
Early action on the -resolution was
predicted buy leaders.
Thie fIght on Post has been smnoul

convicted as an anarchist at Moirgan
town, W. Va., Ilosco, according to
JIohnson, stood in the crewvded court
room and expressed hope that when
released lie would find the Stars andi
