PORT OF ALBANY
Rooseveit Sees Danger in Public Works Based on Politics. J?y the Associated Press. ALBANY. N. Y.p June 8—Waters from the greatest harbors mingled with the water of the Hudson River as Gov. Roosevelt yesterday dedicated the port cf Albany to the argosies of the world. Secretary of War Patrick J. Hurley, who was to have represented President Hoover at the ceremony, was unex plainably detained at Washington. As sistant Secretary Frederick H. Payne was the administration's spokesman. Roosevelt, in commenting upon pub lic works as one way to relieve unem ployment, a method espoused by two of his rivals for the Democratic presiden tial nomination—former Gov. Alfred E. Smith and Speaker John Garner—said: "We have started too many public works for political reasons." He added. "This does not mean that in a time of distress like this we should not use the method of public works, properly planned and definitely useful, to give employment to manv who are out of work.” The Smith and Garner projects in curred the displeasure of President Hoover because of the huge bond issues they carried. Sees Burden in Future. The Governor declared too many projects have been undertaken "without thought of how future generations would pay for their maintenance.” Con tinuing. he said: "We have taxed our citizens for these projects, in many cases at such an Increasing rate that today we are paying the penalty.” The public works proposals also drew the attention of Payne. "Political opponents of the President who arc just beginning to realize the full extent of his useful public work.” declared the Assistant Secretary of War In his speech, "now clamor for whole sale construction, without regard for public welfare. "Instead of offering constructive means of accelerating recovery, they provide reactionary measures to In terfere with its progress. Instead of public works that will pay for them selves. they prorr.ite wholesale construc tion without any regard for utility. Instead of encouraging a national point of view toward a national emergency, they create petty local jealousies.” Large Developments. Payne said the Hoover administration had seen greater inland waterway de velopment than in any similar period of the Republic. The Assistant Secretary of War de clared that "a public works project alone will not restore prosperity.” "It has contributed a great share toward mitigating the effects of the depression.” he said. “We must, however, distinguish between useful public works and wasteful public works.” BAR CHIEF URGES OPEN COMPETITION Henry Ward Beer of Federal Asso ciation Scores Paternalism as Menace to Future Business. By the Associated Press. DETROIT. June 8.—A plea for open competition was voiced today by Henry Ward Beer, president of the Federal Bar Association of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, in an address before the convention of the National Association of Purchasing Agents. Mr. Beer, a former trial counsel for the Federal Trade Commission, ex pressed opposition to the various bills pending in Congress to modify or amend the Federal business laws, par ticularly the Nye bill to establish a Federal trade court and the Walsh bill to Increase the powers of the Federal Trade Commission. The Nye bill. Mr. Beer declared, seems to indicate a lack of faith In the present Federal court system, whose decisions, the speaker asserted, "have never been clearer in the public interest than during the past 10 years.” "You cannot make business strong by feeding it dope,” the speaker de clared. “If you feel Its pulse and examine its tongue, the remedy will be found to be competition.” Decorated GETS PURPLE HEART. 9 __ MAJ. JOSEPH ROGERS DARNALL, Medical Corps, U. S. A., who was wounded In ae*ion on October 28, 1918, during the Meuse-Argonne offensive, has been awarded the Order of the Purple Heart. Maj.

M’FADDEN ASSAILS HOOVER DISCIPLINE “Worst Kind of Bribery,” Says Pennsylvanian Stripped of Patronage. Representative McFadden. Pennsyl vania Republican, who was stripped of his patronage privileges after a verbal attack on President Hoover last De cember, retaliated yesterday with the statement that such executive disci pline was the “worst sort of bribery.” McFadden made the statement in a letter to Senator Reed, Republican, of Pennsylvania, asking him whether he intended to keep the patronage for the fifteenth district of Pennsylvania. Reed replied that McFadden was within his rights in "uttering the beliefs you hold regarding President Hoover,” but that “the President does not follow the recommendations of Democrats or other political adversaries” in making ap pointments. McFadden lost his patronage privi leges when he charged President Hoover with "selling out" to Germany in arranging the moratorium. "Tile duty of a Congressman under our Constitution,” McFadden wrote to Reed, “is to his constituents who sent him here to represent their interests. How can we say that we have a repre sentative government if the men we elect to the parliamentary offices of the Nation are simply to be rubber stamps for the Executive and the men who put the campaign contributions into the party chests.” Somerset P.-T.
