Washington, March 8. The era of good feeling, proclaimed o hope fully by President Harding in hi In augural address, ha in a measure been begun. The smiling countenance of Demo cratic a well as Republican Senators emerging from the President' office bore testimony Monday to the fact that for the first time in eight year that Congress and the chief execu tive are on intimate terms with one another. Thia mean no reflection on Mr. Wilson, who came to Washing ton without knowing much about the personal equation of Congress and who never cultivated the legislative membership, but it does mean that Warren Harding's six yeara in the United States Senate will probably prove great advantage instead of a handicap to him.

NO ENTNSLEMENTS, HE SAYS President tn His Inaugural Address, Outlines th New Administration's Policies and Some of th Tremen dous Taske Confronting the Nation. Pledges Service and Says H Con fidently Faces tha Future. President Harding In his inaugural addreas outlined problems now con fronting the nation and the policies of the new administration. Standing for the promotion of peace and prog gress, he said America was ready to associate with other nations for coun sel, but that she could be a -party to no entangling alliances. The new president I'ged service and says he faces the future confidently. The speech follows, tn full: My Countrymen: When one sur veys the world about him after the gTeat storm, noting the marks of de struction aud yet .rejoicing in the rug gedness of the things which withstood It, If be is an Americau he breathes the clarified atmosphere with a strange mingling of regret and new hope. We have seen a world passion spend ita fury, but we contemplate our republic unshaken, and hold our civilization secure. Liberty liberty within the law and civilization are inseparable, and though both were threatened we find them now secure; and there comes to Americans the profound assurance that our represen tative government is the highest ex pression and surest guaranty of both. Standing in this presence, mindful of the solemnity of this occasion, feel ing the emotions which no one may know until he senses the great weight of responsibility for himself, I must utter my belief In the divine Inspira tion of the founding fathers. Surely there must have been God's intent In the making of this new-world repub lic. Ours Is an organic law which had but one ambiguity, and we saw that effaced In a baptism of sacrifice and blood, with union maintained, the na tion supremo and its concord Inspir ing. We have seen the world rivet Its hopeful gaze ou the great truths on which the founders wrought. Wa have seen civil, human and religtoua liberty verified and glorified. In tha beginning, the Old World scoffed at our experimeut; today our founda tions of political and social belief stand unshaken, a precious Inherit ance to ourselvea, an Inspiring ex ample of freedom and civilization to all mankind Let us express renewed and strengthening devotion, in grate ful reverence for tha immortal begin ning, and utter our confidence in tha supreme fulfilment. Progress Proves Wisdom. Tha recorded progress of our re public, materially and spiritually, in Itself provea tha wisdom of the inher ited policy of non-Involvement in Old World affairs. Confident of our abil ity to work out our own destiny, and Jealously guarding our right to do so, wo aeek - part In directing tha des tinies of the old World. Wa do not mean to be entangled. Wa will ac cept no responsibility axcept aa our cwa cons :.nca and Judgment, In each Instance, tray determine. Our ayea never will be blind to a developing menace, our ears never eat to tha call of civilisation. Wa recognize tha new order lu the world, with the closer contacts which prog ress has wmught Wo senna tha call of tba human heart for fellowship, fraternity and co-operation. Wa crava friendship, aud harbor no bate. But America, our America, tba America builded on tba foundation laid by tba Inspired fathera, can be a party to no permanent military alliance. It can enter into no political commitments, or assume any ecouomio obllgatious which will subject our derision to any other than our own authority. 1 am aure our own people will not misunderstand, nor will the world misconstrue. We have no thought t Impede the path to closer relation ship. We wish to promote under standing. We want to do our part In making offensive warfare so hateful that governments and people who resort to it must prove the righteous ness of their cause or stand as out laws before the bar of civilization. Association For Counsel. We are ready to associate ourselves with the nations of the world, treat and small, for conference, for coun sel; to speak tha expressed views of world opinion; to recommend a way to approximate disarmament and re lieve the crushing burdens of military and naval establishment. Wa elect to participate In suggesting plans for mediation, conciliation and arbitra tion, and would gladly Join in that expressed con science of progress which seeks to clarify and write the laws of International relationship, and establish a world rourt for the dis position of such Justiciable questlona as nation are agreed to submit there to. In expressing aspirations, in seek ing practical plans. In translating hu manity's new concept of righteousness and Justice and Its hatred of war Into recommended action we are ready most heartily to unite, but every com mitment must be made In the exer cine of our national sovereignty. Since freedom impelled, and independence inspired, and nationality exalted, a world super-government Is contrary to everything we cherish and can have no sanction by our republic. This Is not selfishness, it is sanctity. It is not aloofness, it is security. It is not suspicion of others. It is pa triotic adherence to the things which made us what we are. Toduy, better than ever before, wa know the aspirations of humankind, and share them. We have come to a new realization of our place in the world, and a new appraisal of our na tion by the world. The unselfishness of these I'nited States Is a thing proven, our devotion to peace for our selves and for the world la well es tablished, our concern for preserved civilization has had Ita impassioned and heroic expression. There was no American failure to resist the "at tempted reversion of civilization, there will be no failure today or tomorrow. Rests on Popular Will. The success of our popular govern ment rests wholly upon the correct Interpretation of the deliberate. Intel ligent, dependable popular will of America. In a deliberate questioning of a suggested change of national pol icy, where internationality was to su percede nationality, we turned to a referendum to the American people. There was ample discussion, and there Is a public mandate in manifest i't derstanding. America la ready to encourage, eager to Initiate, anxious to partic ipate in any seemly program likely to lessen the probability of war, and promote that brotherhood of mankind which must be God's highest concep tion of human relationship. Because wa cherish ideals of Justice and peace, because we appraise International comity and helpful relationship no lesa highly than any people of the world, wa aspire to a high place In the moral leadership of civilization, and wa bold a maintained America, tha proven republic, tha unshaken temple of representative democracy, to be not ont an inspiration and ex ample, but tha highest agency of strengthening good will and promoU Ing accord on both continents. Mankind needs a world wide bene diction of understanding. It Is needed among Individuals, among peoples, among governments, and It will Inau gurate an era of good feeling to mark tha birth of a new order. In such un derstanding men will strive confident ly for tha promotion of their better relationships and nattona will promote tba comities so essential to peace. Trade Ties Bind Cloaely. Wa must understand that tlea of trade bind nations In closest intimacy, and none may receive except as ha gives.

The lower house of Japan hag urged the appointment of a commis sion to investigate affairs in Korea. This is probably due to the recent assassination of Bingen Shoku, a Korean official who was favorable to Japanese rule. The murder occurred at Tokia.

The body which rep resents the people of Japan seems disposed, so far as it is able, to favor fair dealing.
