MUST THE PRESENT CONGRESS
BE CLUBBED INTO SENSIBILITY?
The Failure of Mr. Harding's Patient
Tactics Suggests That Rough Treat
ment Is the Only Remedy
TTIinHTINf! v.erds, or phrases Indicative
of jangled nerve nnd lnerdlnntely tried
temper, are net discoverable In Mr, Hard
ing's acknowledgment thnt present condi
tions in Congress nre unfavorable te nctlen
upon one of his cherished measures, the
Ship-Subsidy Kill. As n specimen of self
restraint and deliberately assumed poise,
the President's letter te Keprcsentntlve
Mendell, conceding the advisability of delay,
The President, however. Is net the com
plete stoic, a fact for which the public,
with an alleged taste for "humanized" Chief
r.xecutives, should presumably be grateful.
Mr. Harding indeed mnkes no secret of his
dls-appelntment ever the obstacles te his
If there Is scant belligerency In his letter
no effort i made te disguise the note of
genuine regret. It Is, In fact, u porrewful
missive, pathetic testimony te the futility
of entertaining In this country a theory and
a philosophy of government nt variance with
eeme ugly facts.
It Is well known thnt Mr. Harding en
tered office with the preconceived Inten
tion te refrain from quarreling with Con
gress. His conception of government nml
cably administered, of co-operation between
the executive and legislative branches and
of the restoration of n kind of goodfellow geodfellow goedfellow
ship In politics, was originally welcomed as
n relief from the tempests of the Koosevelt Keosevelt Koesevelt
lan and Wilsenian dna"tles.
The new President nourished an Ideal
through which tact was te have been mere
effective than bludgeoning, nnd accommoda
tion of interests was te have replaced brutal
Tl" conception was creditable te Mr.
Harding's personal character and scrupu
lously in line with constitutional precepts.
There is, moreover, little doubt that the
public would have rejeii ed in the spectacle
of n Congress working constructively with
the C'hlef Magistrate nnd moved by his kind

supporting the flimsy tower of delusion until
The President in his letter hopes for
action in the short session, nnd accepts
the dismal present in the expectation of
a brighter future.
Kut what guarantee of reform can be
sighted actually? Mr. Harding has re
frained from chnstislng Congress, nnd his
reward is precisely that of teachers who
have adopted the policy of moral suasion
with vicious pupils. Congress, though It
may splutter and howl, understands the
red. Koesevelt and Wilsen taught them
something of its mennlng.
There are, in truth, Increasing evidences,
lamentable, though they are, that the press

It was this pass te which the Reman

Three hundred jenrs before that event the

An American empire with the trappings
of despotism, however efficient, Is net a
prospect calculated te gladden the hearts
of persons who may recall the principles
upon which this Nutlen was founded. Mr.
Harding is among such individuals, and It
Is natural that he should be pained und
hurt bv repudiation of his policies and the
flouting of his conscientious purposes.
At bottom, of course, the drift toward
an Augustus cannot be nscrlbnl exclusively
te the unties of Congress. H is the body
of cltiens themselves thnt primarily is re
sponsible for the bandar-leg In Washing

for application of the big stick,
Mr, Harding lit loath te use this weapon,
which Infuriated Its victims when tome of
his predecessors struck savage blows.
It Is the Pfesldent'H misfortune that he
has conceived n higher type of republican

Diiccter forte en ought te be mere cau

men nnd burglnrs end thieves nnd gamblers
and the promoters of vice, the magistrates
will no longer be nblei te exercise the
power of caliphs in their districts nnd, of
ceure, they will net be nblc te held voters
together in nwed crowds against the days of
gang elections. What will then become of
the foundations upon which the vast system
of ward politics Is triumphantly founded?
It Is true, of course, that organized vice
nnd clime and ward politics have the same
roots. Viewed from n strictly academic
point of view, it sometimes seems thnt courts
ami juries ought te be permitted te deal
intelligently nnd sternly with felons if the
present order of society is te continue. Kut
the practical man in politics, with little
respect for the academician, would pooh
pooh that belief and prove In no time that
Mr. Cortel.veu ought te be reprimanded. If
the machines nre te live, magistrates must
live. And magistrates cannot live In the
style te which they nre accustomed unlesn
they nre permitted te sell fnvers and deal out
or withheld punishment for n price.
Reform the system under which magis
trates held sway In the wards and you will
deprive the political machinists of bread nnd
butter and bribe money. Kut, merely te
improve the stnte of society, te punish

AS ONE WOMAN SEES IT
Mrs. Warburton Nails a Canard and
Explains the Plan of the Repub
Mean Women of Pennsylvania
te Finance a Campaign
Ily SAKAII I). LOWRIE
IF TIinRM Is one thing I nm surer of than
another, It Is that n question hurled nt
me In the morning, which I nm utterly
unable te answer, will be nnswered none
the less nnd In the most satisfactory way
possible by nightfall. It Is one of life's
1 bad n letter from a very conscientious
objector te most things handed te me by a
friend with tills sentence In it:
"What does Mrs. Warburton mean by her
S1000 bribing of the women voters? Dees
she think she can carry the women who
stand for n free choice, without coercion at
the polls, by such methods?"
Well, the thing was an entire enigma te
me! I had missed three days of the Phila
delphia papers, having te be content with
the world news through the fractional
viewpoint of n New Yerk City local. 'What
indeed could Mrs. Warburton mean thnt
could have been se garbled? The only
thing I wns sure of was that she had net
meant an.v thing thnt bore the faintest re
semblance te btlbery. or te coercion. I was
as sure of that ns 'any of the ward politi
cians of mv native town have grim reason
te be. Kut ns te what some lgnnrant nnd
perhaps ever-cxcltnble political lady thinker
hail commented en whnt she believed Mrs.
Wnrburten hud said that was another
ALL the back Issues of the Philadelphia
papers bad gene te light the numerous
fires this cold wave hn Involved up here In
the North Weeds. There was no one In
sight who had been in Philndelphla recently!
I forget mv habitual gend luck of getting
nn explanation out of the Everywhere Inte
the Here, nnd I wns guessing what te de
next, when In the most nwful deluge of the
entire season, when every leaf poured n
torrent, and the golden glow nnd the phlev
were mixed In one drench of moisture, nt
that moment some one an id:
"Helle, where arc you?"
And In walked Mrs. Warburton!
She was metering In the Adirondack and
stepned in te "laugh along with me" for a
NnMirnllv when we get settled for a talk
I nsked her about that "?1000 bribe" and
In fact gave her the anxious politician's
feminine gender letter te read.
She gave a little sigh nnd stepped laugh
ing, shook her head doubtfully before em
barking, nnd then said:
"Oh. vluit is the ue!"
However, in the end I get from her whnt
bad actually been said through the publicity
department of her office after n slewlv mn
tured plan that had been passed upon by the
powers flint he. in the State and the
National Republican Councils.
THE coming election. It had been decided,
wns the time te recruit the women of
this State Inte Republican organizations
along local and unofficial lines. This i
pnrtly being done by the organisatien forces
nl remit in existence in what is known ns
"machine committees": it Is nle being
done by clubs that are offshoots of the In
dependent Republic'in bodies, notably b.t
such n markedly Influential one ns the
Republican Women of Philadelphia, of
which Mrs. Lerlmer and Mrs. Klnnkenliurs.
Mrs. Dunning, etc., are leaders; and lastly
it is being done bv certain women heie nnd
there who were appointees of the (Inventor
during the first year tl e women In the
State had the vote, and who while no longer
members of nny State or County Republican
Committee nre in positions of Influence in
their particular localities, at least ns leaders
of factions within the party.
New there are no funds nt the disposal of
the State headquarters or of these unofficial
Republicans for n force of expert orgen-li'iT-i
who will enroll these var.ving elements
of the Republican Pnrtv into some sort of
an adjustable force for the coming election.
Yet it Is important for these backing the
candidates, from the ('overnnr nnd the Sen
ntnrs te the county representatives, te have
some reliable data as te the way the women
nre going te stand back of the party candi
dates at the fall election.. The women who
voted for Alter and there were an appreci
able number in Mime of the counties, espe
cially Allegheny Count, where the League
of Women Voters Is strene nnd where some
of its leaders were franklv for hlin hew
they were going te jtand by the choice of
their party as n whole was the question.
OF COURSE, a great deal of money could
have been collected nnd spent te make
n campaign fiem headquarters with these
Alter voters te stand by their party In spite
of the fact thnt Plncbet and net Alter wns
the party candidate, but It was thought
better te have the work for this propaganda
for fair-mindedness come from the local
leaders in any of the abeve mentioned
And In order te insure these local leaders
who would have te spend money for such
propaganda as suited the local needs, letters,
meetings, spenkers, etc., it wns decided
that where nny woman had shown herself
able te collect a beciv of Republican women
who were willing te back the ticket, ine
spectlvn of their pretieus primary vote for
Alter nnd the machine candidates who had
gene down In defeat, her legitimate ex
penses as tin organizer should be paid. If
there were no ether funds nvutluble then
li) n fund from headquarters collected by
e general subscription. Kut, of course,
thice reimbursements for money expended
would naturilllv have te be Kept down te a
minimum, probably net leis, say, then Se,
and it wns devoutly te be hoped net greater
than ?100 in an.v case. Ne sum of money,
however, was stated, Mrs Warburton ex
plained, nor were the plans for the local
leaders, innchlne or Independent or other
wise, enough formulated te be put cm paper.
The idea was given out by the publicity
department te get a reaction from the vnrleus
types of lenders. Roferc they could answer,
however, the Dcmecrnticv candidate for
Governer took up n strange inversion -almost
an abortion of the tentative plan nnd made
cnmpnlgn poison out of it te suit his very
apparent needs. Later some of the women
who are politically minded, without being
affiliated with either ptnty, took It up lu
attack it from a mistnken premise thnt
prizes were te be efTereil for votes Instead
of campnlsn expenses essured for party
MRS. AVARKURTON was net apparently
exercised nt the "side, wipes" that
were being made nt her own gene sense,
but she was troubled flint the attempt, that
Is appaient In some quarters of the machine,
te confuse the victerv gnltieil at the primary
bv splitting the party vole al the big ejec
tion, should be bneked by some of the so se
called high-brews and the conscentieuH
vnteis, who, under the guise of voting fur
whom they please next nutiimn, irrespec
tive of the party mnierity for Pinehet, etc.,
will weaken the whole lessen of the defeat
of last spring.
Ot course, the machine politicians would
like te de nway with the primary altogether
and go back te the old iiefarleiiHlj manage
able way of placing their pnrtv candidates en

MRS. WESLEY L. BLITHE
On the Children's Country Week
ONE of the principal objects of the Chil
dren's Country Week Association is te
inculcate into the children n higher standard
of living nnd 10 develop them mentally ns
far as can be done, nnd it Is surprising te
what an extent this Is possible in the short
time that the little ones nn- under the bene
ficial Influences of the organization, says
Mrs. Wesley L. K'.lthc, president of the
'The actual beginnings of whnt is new
the Children's Country Week Association,
said Mrs. Klithe, "were in 1ST,". At that
lime Mrs. Eliza Turner, afterward presi
dent of the New Century Club, conceived the
idea of taking for a visit of a week ut
her summer home nt Ch:idd Ierd two ve
children who would net otherwise be able
te have nnv vacation nway fiem the city.
"We have become se accustomed te having
children taken away during the Mimmer
for periods of rest In the country without
their pnrents. thnt It seems hard te under
stand at this time thnt Mrs. Turner had
some difficulty in finding children te enjoy
her hospitality. The Idea was then entirely
new and it was net kindly received by the
mothers of the children.
Orttlng the Children
"Mrs Turner get Inte communication
wltli mW M. Fnnnle Evans (later Mrs.
Fannie Evans Weiuel nnd long a president
of our nsFOclntlen) and Miss Mary J. Jen Jen
nisen and nsked each of them te find six
children. After considerable trouble owing,
as I hnve said, te the reluctance of the
mothers te entrust their children en a mis
Finn se strange -find incomprehensible te
thorn, each of the young women succeeclecl
In finding six children, nnd the whole pnrtv
ne for the first time en the train which
wns te c.iiivev them te Hindus lord.
Tie following year. 1S70. was that of
the Centennial, nnd owing te the congested
condition of the city nnd the general ex
citement attendant upon the great fair,
nothing wns done by Mrs. Turner, ewever
In 1S77 it was resumed, this time with
twenty children, nnd the work has been car
ried en ever since. .
"The organization was net incorporated
for several vears after the rammer of 1SM
.roved thnt the idea was n Found one und
that much geed, both physical and mental,
c. u Id be accomplished even In se short a
time upon children who were then at the
most impressionable nge. They were taken
for one week nt that time.
Increase and Growth
"The work increased rapidly In extent,
nnd as it Incrensed the methods chnnged
somewhat, although the fundamental Idea of
riving children a much-needed rest nnd roc-n-at
Ien has remained the same from the first
davs of the organization. Miss Jennlseti,
who took se active a part In finding one-half
of the lirst twelve children te go out, was
one of the first presidents, and Miss Lvnns
was treasurer. Later as Mrs. Aetzel. the
latter became president nnd held thut posi
tion until her death in October of 1020,
when I succeeded her.
"In the early days of the association we
were dependent entirely upon Inventions
from persons who had homes in the country
and "who were willing te tnke children for
varvlug periods ns their guests. Later we
changed from the invitation system te thnt
of bearding, that is, we paid the beard of
such cblldien as we were able te from funds
ralscsl bj the iite-neliillnn, the children being
bearded chiefly by farmers' families who
were willing te de this.
"We carefully s-upervlsed the visits of the
children nnd. watched te see that they did
net come Inte contact with any had influ
ences, although, of course, nil farms wcre
carefullv investigated first, and that they
were receiving the greatest (imniint of geed
from their visits. At that time we paid
Js'' r,0 a week for the beard of each child,
and the stay of each child In the country was
one week, ns ut'der previous conditions.
Length of Visit Doubled
"About three years nge It was decided
that the stay of each child should be two
weeks Instead of one, as it was felt thnt one
week was tee short n time for n child te
get the required amount of benefit. Of
course, we cannot send into the country all
the children who need it. nor nil whom we
would like te senil, and therefere it becomes
te a certain extent a mntter of selection of
these who need it the most. Kut even with
thcie conditions we decided that it was for
the better te send one child for two weeks
rather tliMwe cunurcn ier one ween ea,en.

last three years have vindicated the wisdom
of that decision.
"The work has stendllv Increased through
the years, and our hlgh-wnter mark was
reached when we sent nwny mere thnn fiOOO
children In a single summer, using for this
purpose forty-five different bearding places.
"The passing of the years has seen net
only the enlargement, but also the better
ment of the work in many wuys. We new
have six houses of our own which we use
every summer, nnd put the remainder of the
children in vnrleus bearding places, nil of
which we knew te be excellent. Twe of these
places are at the seashore, where we send
mothers and children for whom the sea nir
has been recommended.
Finding the Children
"The children whom we select each sum
mer come te us from the vaiieus social
service agencies which nre working nil the
cnr round with children nnd who knew
the conditions among them better thnn any
one else in the city. We ill se get names
from Sunday-school teachers, from the pas
tors of churches, from Individuals who send
them te us and from the children them
selves in some instances. Seme of them come
te us iiml register themselves. All cases nre
thoroughly investigated except these recom
mended by the secinl service workers, whose
assertions we take as sufficient.
"We new send out about '"t children n
week, each of whom has two weeks In the
country. Where the beard of n child for a
week was formerly $.,ri0, It is new $7..r-0,
and this, of course, makes n difference In
the number we can send. We have also
added n counselor for every group of twenty
children, no mutter whether they are nt one
of our own homes or en a farm being
"This counselor plan hns been n develop
ment of the work, and by means of them
we nre able te glte supervision such ns the
systematizing of meals, games, see that
regular rest hours nre observed, looking te
the Improvement of the manners and te the
mental and moral growth of the children as
well as their physical progress. The coun ceun coun
scler write u report weekly, end in the
cese of an.v tiling unusual developing with
uny of the children, thnt child Is immediately
returned te the family or transferred te that
special organized society which Is best fitted
te supply Its needs.
Mothers Alse Frevlilcd Fer
"We are also able under the present con
ditions of the nssocintlen te take enre of n
certein number of mothers, letting their
children accompany them, nnd this Is one of
tlie most useful and best-appreciated works
of the organlzntien. On Paradise Farm we
have really two operations. One of these is
a house built by the Inte Charles W. Kelb
and endowed by hlinsvith n sum sufficient
for Its maintenance. In this building the
mothers nnd their little children are housed.
The ether operation heie is a camp for boys,
Camp Weilzel, and this is en u hill oppo eppo oppe
site, "The only requirement for the children
te go nway Is that they have no ether mentis
of getting out of the city for n while during
the bummer. If Investigation shows that
this is the case, we consider them as our
lenses. Every child is examined by u phy.
slclnn for contagious disease before being
iifcepted, and there is also a pit slclnn at
the train te mnke a second last-minute ex
amination te see that no contagion- disease
has developed since the first examination
Special attention In this last examination is
made te the nesc. threat mid the possible
presence of tubercular feigns.
"The children whom we accept are boys
nnd girls from six te twelve years of arc
and there nre no conditions as te race color'
nationality or religion. Children under hx
vears of age nre Inken with their luntheis
We hnd been wending fifty n week, but saw
thnt we should net be nble te get tlireuch
with our work, and se sent sixty. five a
week for the lust few weeks. Kut, as I said
this is largely a matter of selection, Ms Wp
cannot begin te send all who need it and'
are therefere obliged te tnke only thesj who
liccd it the most."
