Harding's Majorities Are Counted in Hundreds of Thousands
Harding, First
A Printer, Soon
Became Editor
President ? Elect Worked
Through College, Taught
School, Bought Paper,
Lost It, but Regained It
Elected to State Senate
Sent to United States Senate
by 100,000 Majority,
Then to the WJn'te House
The twenty-eighth President of the
United States cernes from that state
which now fairly rivals Virginia as
the "Mother of Presidents." Ohio falls,
indeed, one. short of .Virginia in the
number of Presidents born within her
borders, boasting only seven .to the
Old Dominion's eight. But, on the
otlwr hand, she exceeds Virginia by
one in the number of Presidents who
were her residents and citizens at the
time of election, the score standing
six to live in her favor.
The latest Ohioan to be elected Pres?
ident, Warrtfh Gamaliel Harding, is
a d< scendant on his father's side of
?Sco:.s who settled in Pennsylvania in
Colonial times, who had to fight for
their homes and lives against the
1: di: ns and who contributed patriot
j to the Revolutionary army. ;
His father, J. P. Harding, is a suc- i
cessful practicing physician. On his'
mother's side he comes of Dutch stock,
ii ling the well known Van Kirk
fam His mother before her mar-I
riagi to Dr. Harding was Miss Phoebe
Elizabeth Dickerson, kin to the Dick
ei . or IHekinson family, which has
greatly figured in the history of New!
York and .New Jersey. Of such ances
try ; "i! parentage he was born on
Kovi n bi :? '.'.. ISij?, at the village of
Cor ;e , or Blooming Grove, Morrow
Co ?. ' ":10.
p , boyhood was spent on the farm
vhic-i Im- fattier cultivated in addition
to practicing his profession, and until
he \ us fourteen years old he attended
the "littiQ red schoolhouse" of the vil?
lage. Then he went to 3 Ohio Central
College, at Iberia, a' .nstitution now
defunct, and was graduated from it in
1882. Most of his expenses in college
were paid with the earnings of his own ?
physical toil. He cut corn, drove teams,
worked on grading the roadbed of a
ne,',- railway and painted barns. Also
}:>? worked in the office of the village
paper arid learned to set type and to
"make up" forms. In his last year in
college i.e taught a village school and
played n horn in the local brass band.
(larding Enters Newspaper Work
11 ;s work in the village printing;
office and on the college paper gave
him his Lent for the profession which
he ai opted on leaving college. Tho
family in 3 88-1 removed to Marion, Ohio,
and dore, with the assistance of his
father, the young man became halt
owner of The Daily Star of that place,
and assumed tbo editorship of it.
But his career in that capacity was
brii f. He had run the paper only ten
day- when the Blaine and Logan con
vention opened in ('hicago, Harding;
found a pass trip book in the office. He
shouted himself hoarse for Blaine, then
told the two printers and the boy that
"kicked'' the press to get out. the paper1
nn-1 hurriedly departed for Chicago.
When he got back to Marion the
Sheriff had the office closed.
Harding then turned to reporting on
The Marion Mirror, a Democratic
paper, for $7 a week. He was the only
reporter on the paper and was making
rapid strides as a country journalist
when one day his Democratic boss di?
rected him to write editorials against'
Blaine. Harding refused, and to show
his contempt wore his tall brown
Blaine hat to work. He flaunted it
about the office, and in the streets. Next
thing lie knew he was "fired." With
unabated zest he continued to "whoop!
I cr up" for Blaine, betting all that he
had. When the tension was over he
v, as broke and blue.
Tho night the Democrats jollified
Harding played in the town baud. In
the band was "Jack" Warwick, now
?aragrapher on The Toledo Blade.
Warwick and Harding that night bor?
rowed enough money to buy Tho Star,
nee more. Warwick soon grew dis-:
. ..raped and became a salaried man
a the paper, while Harding worried
about ever-increasing debts and the
,hadow of the Sheriff. But Marion
Tfew and so did The Star, and in time
:. became a prosperous and powerful
paper. In all the years of Mr. Har- ?
ding's ownership of it it has never suf- j
f.-red a strike or even the threat of !
one.
First Venture In Politics
As a journalist Mr. Harding took
an intense interest in politics, but it.
was many years before he ran for of- ?
fice. Finally, in 1900, he accepted the
nomination for the Stato Senate. He ?
was elected, and served four years.
Then, in 1904-'06, he was Lieutenant .
Governor of the state. In 1910 he was
?he Republican candidate for Governor,
but through dissensions in the party!
suffered defeat at the polls.
His popularity with the people of
tho state continually increased, now- ,
ever, and lie soon began to be talked o? \
as a Presidential candidate. His great i
popularity was shown in l!*l-t, when he >
was elected United States Senator by ;
a majority of more than 100.000, run?
ning 73,000 ahead of the next highest i
man on the ticket.
In tho Senate ho was made a mem '
ber of the Committee on Foreign Rela?
tions, which, because of the war, was
I one of the ?most important of all. Tie
j was an earnest supporter of President
' Wilson's Administration in the prose?
cution of the war, and later criticized
: it severely.
Just before we entered tho war a
: Democratic Senator asked him what
sort of plight he thought the country
| would be in if Roosevelt were Presi?
dent.
"If Theodore Roosevelt had been
President," replied Mr. Harding, "the
Lusitania would never have been sunk
and we should to-day be living under
the guaranties of peace rather than
trembling on the verge of war."
Later ?e introduced into the Senate
' an amemlment to a bill which, if
' adopted, would have permitted Colonel
Roosevelt to organise a division of
' volunteers and lead it to France.
Prompt Peace-Making Urged
At the end of the war Senator Har?
ding was an advocate of prompt peace
; making, and of some legitimate co?per
''? ation among the nations of the world
' which would lessen if not wholly avert
i tho danger of further wars. Rut he |
was opposed to the adoption of the
| covenant of the League of Nations with
! rut effective reservations. In urging
I the ndoption of such reservations he
' said in the Senate in September last:
"International arbitration and a
; world court for justiciable disputes
i appeal to all who think justice is sus
? tained in reason rather than in armed
1 disputes. Tho establishment of an
; agency for the revelation of the moral
judgment of the world can never be
' amiss. These things might well have
! come out of the combined consciences
? of the nations awakened to new ideas '
?amid the sufferings of war, and they
will yet come. But it does not recpuire j
a super-government to effect them nor ;
the surrender of nationality and inde?
pendence of action to sanction them."
Campaign for the Presidency
Senator Harding was early recognized
to be one of the foremost candidates
fot the Republican nomination for the
I residency this year, and when the |
convention met he was among th.e three i
or four favorites. On the first ballot,;
it y? true, he received only G")l2 votes,
and did not rise to third place until j
the seventh, when he had 105 votes.
On the eighth he rose to 133%; on the
ninth he received much of the support
that had been triven to Governor Low
den, and got 374l,"2; and on the tenth
he was nominated, with G02 1-1), a choice
which was at once made unanimous.
During the campaign ho remained
most of the time at home, receiving
multitudes of visitors and making j
fiequent addresses from the porch ofj
his home. lie made a notable trip
toward the Northwest, going into Min?
nesota, and another southward und east?
ward, especially visiting Kentucky.
West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New
York State.
His Domestic Life
Senator and Mrs. Harding live in a |
pretty home on Mount. Vernon Avenue, 1
Marion, Ohio. The furnishings of the
house are rich and tasteful, but there
is no sign of gaudiness. Many little
things have been picked up in Europe
and are used as decorations in Mr. |
Harding's "den." Books are every- I
where to be found?in the library and :
out of the library.
Their welding, which occurred in
their early life, was the culmination of
a pretty romance. Miss Florence Kling
was the daughter of Amos II. Kling,
one of the foremost and richest busi- ?
ness men of Marion. It is related that
when she was born her father was dis- '
appointed because she was not a boy,
anil consoled himself by bringing her
up more as a boy than a girl. She was
fond of horses, dogs and outdoor life,
and took much interest in her father's
business. In her early teens, when she i
had to leave school, on account, of j
threatened loss of eyesight, she became
her father's chief director and pa!. She
rode horseback with "dad." traveled
about with him, and made up to him in ;
every way she could tho loss of her i
mother's companionship, Mrs. Kling!
being more or less of an invalid.
Miss Kling was popular and attrac?
tive and was much sought in society
and by marriageable young men. Nat?
urally, her parents were ambitious for
her to make the brilliant match which
she deserved. But she had notions of
her own on the subject, and made up
her mind that she herself was to be i
the judge of her future, husband's,
worth. One evening at a social gather?
ing she met one whom she thought
would measure up to the standard; a
young newspaper man who had recently ?
come to Marion to run The Daily Star, j
But her father did not agree with her. j
Young Mr. Harding was not yet suffi- \
ciently successful with the paper.
But the young couple knew their own j
minds and preferred them to the minds
of others, and in due time ?heir en?
gagement was announced. Mr. Kling,
persisted in his disapproval, and told ;
his daughter that if she married Hard- :
ing he would "cut her off without a
dollar." She disregarded the threat
and on July 8. 1891, she married Hard
ing, and her father kept his word. So
the Hardings had to begin married life ?
in humblo quarters, at which some of 1
the bride's rich friends raised super
cillons eyebrows. But she simply made I
up her mind all tho more firmly that I
she was right and that she would one j
day show them all what sort of man j
she had married. And she did.

METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE BUILDING
Old Employees
First to Greet
Next President
(Continued from pig? on?)
men have played important r?les in
this campaign.
Another who sat with tho Hardings
was Harry M. Daugherty, of Columbus,
closest of the political advisers of Sen?
ator Harding, and the man who more
than any other individual placed him
in the position taht made his nomina?
tion possible in the Republican conven?
tion at Chicago on June 12, last.
Fifty-five pink candles were glowing
on a birthday cake in the dining room
of 3<S9 Mount Vernon' Avenue to-night
when a blare? of tin horns caused Mrs.
Harding to pause as she was about to
cut a thick wedge from the confection.
The din was a summons to Senator
Harding to make his first front porch
speech as President-elect.
The, Senator went out on tho porch
bareheaded. He had no idea he was
going to make a speech. He had no
idea, in fact, who his noisy callers
were. When he cnnie to the edge of
the steps, he saw that the visitors were
some forty of the employees of his
newspaper, the Marion Star. Shoving
one hand in his trousers pocket as a
partial defense against the raw chill
of the night, the editor of the Star
called out greetings:
"Hello. Miller," and "well, well,
Bertie" and "Howdy, haven't seen much
of you this summer."
One of the women holding an open
box of chrysanthemums whispered to
the Senator that they were paying a
birthday call. Then all of them
mounted the steps to tho porch. Mrs.
Harding came out, a crimson sweater
across her shoulders ami held together
with one hand at her throat. A tall,
thin man, a printer, began to read a
presentation speech. He was acting for
the long-whiskered man with steel
frame spectacles who stood beside him I
holding a pasteboard jewelry box In j
one hand.
Then abruptly the presentation i
speech was finished. The whiskered i
man it. was Luther Miller, seventy
six years old and a Star printer for \
two-score years shoved the little box !
into the Senator's hand. The Senator
held it a minute. He appeared to bo
having some difficulty with his throat :
and eyes.
"Open it," directed one of the print?
ers in a hoarse voice. The Senator
d;d so. and found a gold make-up rule,
a small tool, usually of steel, that is
employed in adjusting type in forms.
"Fellow members of the Star," be?
gan the editor, "you and I have been
associated together for a great many
yehps. I know you and you know 1
wouldn't cheat you."
There the boss of The Star stopped.
There could be no mistake about the
Wars in his eyes or the break in his
speech.
Promises Pair Dealing
"I am coming into very great re?
sponsibility if the election returns are
interpreted aright, 1 don't know if t
can meet them adequately. 1 know one
thing: 1 can meet them with the same
? ustics id faiJT-.cus w ?-.h \ huh I have
dealt with you."
Somehow "W, G." didn't seem much
of an orator to-night. He paused again,
his lips twitching nervously, and then
went on:
"L. J., my old friend, Miller"
Miller's whiskers are more than a
foot long and gray. This appendage
began to wag absurdly. The aged
printer was on the verge of tears, but
not quite. It wasn't his birthday.
"The oldest employee on the Star,"
continued the editor. "We've been to?
gether thirty-six years. Sometimes
the road was thorny. 'Sometimes tiye
known him to draw his pay and I'd
have to borrow it from my mother.
Other times I borrowed Miller's pay
back from him in the morning.
"Some one else was trifling. It was
Mrs. Harding. She was the circulation
manager of The Star in those stormy
days.
"I'm just a. plain fellow, but if I've
been on the square with you 1 wouldn't
cheat you. I'm going to be on the
square with everybody.
"Somehow flu's has touched me"?
again the editor had to pause.
Standing in the doorway were a ?
couple of the Iiairding dinner guests
Colonel F. E. Scobey, of Texas, who used
to be Sheriff of Marlon County and is
Warren Harding's pal, and Jess Smith,
of Washington Court House, Ohio, a
sort of political astral body of Harry;
Daugherty. Both of them were using
napkins to mop their eyes.
"I thank you for your calli" con?
tinued the Senator. "I just want to j
say that my happiest moments always'
have and always will be those in the
New First Lady of the Land
Mrs. Warren G. Harding
composing room of the Star, just be?
fore the presses begin to rumble."
The editor of the Star began to shake
hands with his callers, again assuring
them that on Thursday he was coming
down once morn to put the paper to
bed.
Then Mrs. Harding was presented
with the box of Chrysanthemums and
made her initial appearance as a front
porch speaker.
"I thank you very much," said the
next first lady of the land. "You have
made me very homesick for the old
days when ( worked each day in the
Star office. Thar,!; von, thank you."
The Republican Presidential candi?
da'" should have got up early this
morning, as becomes all candidates,
whether for tho office of village con?
stable or the highest place in the land.
Recognizing that propriety of politics,
Se lator Harding left instructions
last night that he be called early, but
in addition to being election day, this
is also the fifty-fifth birthday anni?
versary of the Senator, as attested by
a white birthday cake bearing that
many candles on the dining room table,
and Mrs. Harding canceled his in?
st rue; ions.
So the eldest male voter registered
from 380 Mount Vernon Avenue slept
until the tantalizing odor of waffles
and chipped beef was conveyed on tneir
o\Vn steam into his bedroom. It wasn't
so very long afterward that the. Sena?
tor and Mrs. Harding left the house
and were driven to the polling place of
War I ;;. Precinct C.
This is a brick [tarage that serves
the Schroctcr and Hubcr families,
among the wealthiest in Marion.
Friends of the candidate, camera men,
newspaper correspondents and other
voters, were grouped about when the
Senator arrived. On this occasion
Frank Blackston, who drives the Har?
ding auto just as fast as Mrs. Harding
cares to go, was as important as the
Senator himself, and entered the struc?
ture along with his employers and
George 13. Christian jr.. the Senator's
secretary, Inside five canvas curtained
polling booths were ranged along one
wall. A dozen voters, most of them
women, were in line. All endeavored
to give their places to tile Hardings,
but tho offer was declined with thanks,
in front of Mrs. Harding was Sam
Williamson, a former policeman, in
o\ rails. Behind Mrs. Harding was
the Senator, then Christian, and finally
the chauffeur. It was then 10:15. In
response to requests from the cam?
era men, the Senator took off his hat,
put it on, turned around, laughed,
talked and was generally docile and
good humored. There were twelve min?
utes of this and then Mrs. Harding re?
ceived ballot 303 and the Senator 804.
"For goodness sake!" exclaimed Mrs.
I
I Harding, "do 1 get all these?" The
clerk had placed in her hands six bal- I
i lots, national, state, county, Congres- ]
I sional and two on sewer bond issues, j
! The candidate examined his handful j
and said :
"Well, it seems a marl only gets a
chance to vote once for himself for j
President."
"You're going to get two chances,"
spoke up one of the women voters
standing by. Patsy Kelly, judge of the
voting in Precinct C, is a lifelong
Democrat and a friend of Senator Har?
ding. He was almost bursting with!
pride as ho drew back the curtain for
the Republican candidate to enter a
booth and called out :
"Warren G. Harding, registered Np.
195." The curtain dropped, Concealing
all of the candidate except about a
L'-foot section of his blue trousers. In
the next booth was Mrs. Harding.
If Senator Harding voted anything
j but straight tickets be worked fast, for
he was outside handing his ballots to
the clerk in a very short space of time,
?'and soon Mrs. Harding was there with
1 hers.
"You put 'em in the box, Senator,"
called out one of the movie men. But
t,he candidate demurred and the clerk,
suffering greatly from stage fright,
finally succeeded in stuffing into the
box ?t ballot representing the desire of
Senator Hardinc concerning the elec?
tion of Mr. Harding for the Presidency.
The Senator and Mrs. Harding
emerged from the garage, glanced up?
ward at gloomy skies nnd presently set
off in their machine For Columbus,
where the candidate played golf at the
Scioto Club until dark, when he re?
turned to Marion and discovered that
there is music in the clicking of tele?
graph keys, when those instruments
bring news of victory.
There was only in the birthday anni?
versary of the President-elect. He was
beaten at golf this afternoon at Co?
lumbus. He was paired at the Scioto
Club with Judge IL E. Anderson. They
were beaten one up by Col. F. E. Sco
bcv arid Carl Burr, a Columbus lawyer.
The streets of Marion were thronged
to-night, but the crowds in response to
a suggestion from the Marion Civic
Association, left the cause of it all
pretty much in peace. The town is
going to celebrate Thursday. Then
there will be a parade from the busi?
ness part of the city to the Harding
home and a speech from the next Pres?
ident from that best of all stages, his
front porch.
One of the most gratifying features
of the returns to-night, in the estima?
tion of Senator and Mrs. Harding, was
the result in the Senator's home dis?
trict, Precinct G of Ward Four. The
Senator received 393 votes to 76 for
Governor Cox.

From a Staff Correspondent
MARION, Ohio, Nov. 2.?President?
elect Warren G. Harding is planning |
to leave Marion with Mrs. Harding and ;
a trainload of "buddies" either Friday
night or Saturday morning for Point J
Isabel, Tex. That is as far as he can ,
get from" the front porch and still re- !
main within the borders of the United !
States. i
' But it isn't far enough, and after j
about two weeks in that region of ;
dengue fever, rattlesnakes, scorpions, i
tarantulas, hot tamales and armadillos, j
but which is nevertheless uninfested
with Republican office-seekers, the \
President-elect will take his playmates ?
to New Orleans and sail from there
for the Panama Canal Zone.
All through the campaign, when peo- ;
pie have observed the Senator in deep j
thought and have wondered just what j
article of the League of Nations he I
was frowning upon, it is more than
likely he has been thinking about
Point Isabel and the things his pal, '
Colonel F. E. Scobey, now of San j
Antonio, formerly Sheriff of Marion
County, Ohio, has told him about that
Gulf resort with its superb tarpon fish- j
ing, its 150 Mexican inhabitants and ?
100 whites. The Senator promised
Scobey the night he was nominated in i
Chicago that he would go to Point !
Isabel, and to make the promise more
binding he said he would go, win or ;
lose.
Has No Axes to O rind
This Colonel Scobej may be from
Texas, but he is not to be classified
with Colonel House. When he laughs,!
a deep rumble starts well down in his
highly polished boots and finishes by
shaking his double chin and knitting
his bushy gray brows. He never says
"Don't quote me." He just takes it
for granted he won't be quoted. Ail
he wan--:- from Senator Harding is to
be allowed to feel that neither politics
nor high office lias altered the close1
?"s ' ndsh p that has existed between
them in all the years since young:
Warren Harding first came to Marion.
Scobey (??elates that ail the State of j
Texas will endeavor to convince Sena- |
tor Harding that there is nothing too
good for him. The Hardings will stay,
in a cottage at Point Isabel owned by .
R. B. Creager, a banker of San Antonio.
Three members of the United States
Senate are going to be aboard the \
special train that takes the President- ;
elect to Point Isabel. Even Governor
Cox would concede that they do not '
represent any Senate oligarchy. They, '
with Senator Harding, have long
formed one. of the happiest golf four- j
somes that ever teed off. There are :
Senator Joseph Freylinghuysen of New |
Jersey, Senator ICederick Hale of
Maine and Senator Davis Elkins of
West Virginia.

Senator Harding wants to go to
Panama primarily to get some first
hand information about that posses?
sion of the United States. He is
pledged tj see that the new American
merchant marine will be given the
privilege of passing through the canal
without paying tolls, and for that rea?
son alone he is anxious to see the
man-made link between the Atlantic
and the Pacific,, which is going to
figure largely in the debates in Con?
