U. S. PROSPEROUS, SAYS POSTAL CHIEF New Reviews Achievements of Harding Administration t Before Indianians. Coming into power at a time when the reaction from the hectic activities of the war period were still in prog ress, the republican administration in Us two years of governmental con trol has transformed the chaotic con ditions into an era of prosperity. Postmaster General Harry S. New declared in an address last night at the "Hoosler Night" celebration of the Republican State Voters* Asso ciation at the Willard Hotel. The Postmaster General painted a Vivid picture of the accomplishments of the Harding administration in the face of barriers placed in its path by Specialties in Women*s and Misses?

President Harding, he said, “has remained patient, although beset by those who have denied him many things which in his calm Judgment would have hastened the return to prosperous conditions on which he has set his heart, but supremely con fident of the soundness of his policies and the greatness of his purpose." Recalls Achievements. Although Mr. New did not specify what It was that had been denied the President, many who heard him were of the opinion that his reference was to the Sixty-seventh Congress’ defeat of the ship subsidy bill and the an tagonism aroused within the Presi dent’s own party because of Mr. Hard ing’s suggestion that the United States be officially represented on the international court set up under the league of nations. "We in the United States," Mr. New said, "do not realize the speed with which we have recovered from the great war. Kvery one of the govern ments .abroad that participated In It has overthrown at least once— and not all of them because of the unrest duo to acute and prolonged nervous tension. "Let us »tbp and take stock for a moment of the progress that has been made during the Harding adminis tration. First and foremost, through the accomplishments of the disarma ment conference, we have allayed the only prospect of war with which the United States was threatened, and THE EVENING &TAH, WASHINGTON. P. C.. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 1923. have, in point of fact, rendered such , a war all but impossible. I do not believe the magnitude of that plishment has* yet been adequately ap praised. ... .. "During the last few months the administration has successfully ne gotiated the greatest accomplishment in the history of financial t J ran " a ®' tlons in the settlement of the dJDt owing us by Great Britain. It was all easy enough to say that t *\ e money was owing and must be paid, but it was a far different proposition to have a payment guaranteed in amity." Unemployment Decrease- ‘ Less than two years ago. Post master General New emphasized, there were between 5.000.000 and 6.000.000 of unemployed In the United States. Today that condition has all ( but disappeared and the demand for , labor cannot be supplied. Mr. New touched upon the large in- | crease in the business of the Post j Office Department, which ho de scribed as a barometer of business and Industry. He told of the pros perity of the country by referring to the large wage scale that labor is enjoying and the great activity of industries which he pictured as Jam med with orders lor a long period. "We have heard much of the dis tressed condition of the American farmer.” ho added. "Beyond a ques tion he suffered the consequences of the war. For the sake of argument , we will admit that he suffered earlier • I and more than did any one else. But, ■J® that aa it may, the products of the * a l7? t* l * B last year were worth $2,- 500,000,000 more than they were the >® ar Preceding. "I have given but a few of the. un questioned and unquestionable facts w * llc *’ to base the claim that if there Is such a thing as unexampled prosperity the United States is today the exact geometrical center of it. What we need and all we need is con fidence, for the solid basis for it Is here—-we are going ahead as we never have before." Judge John M. Lewis, assistant con troller general, created a stir in the audience when ho charged that the government departments are filled | I~ - - - —• Woobmarh &!Catltrojj DOWN STAIRS STORE , Big Display Easter Suits, Coats, Capes & i M s 2o of tans and new grays or / V I ; L - on & n J B Ca U aTel ß c°ob°r 1 ! tweed mixtures, |j side-tie models, slk lined.

He said that the men holding the key positions of virtually all the government depart ments were appointees of the Wilson administration, placed there by Tum ulty, Wilson’s private secretary. Indianians believe, Judge Lewis de clared, that President Harding should get a new broom and make a clean sweep of these democrats who are not in sympathy with the administration and who use their official positions to oppose everything that is republican and to keep out of office republicans who are entitled to hold positions in • the government. This democratic per | sonnel, he asserted, stands ready to throw a monkey wrench Into the political machine when 'the oppor tunity presents Itself. These demo crats, he said, should be thrown out of office and the republicans under the civil service who were demoted by the Wilson regime should bo pro moted. William Tyler Page, president of the association, opened the meeting and then turned It over to Judge Stanton J. Peelle, a retired member of the Court of Claims. Henry M.

Robinson, who died Sunday, be bur led from his own parish, the funeral services will be held Thursday at Zion Baptist Church. A decree t»y Rev.

This ruling has caused much regret In the community, but members of the First Baptist are powerlesa to proceed any further. However, It <s announced by Walter Davis, senior deacon, that memorial services will be held for the departed rector In the near future at his old. church.
