HUTCHINSON, KANSAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1923 LAST EDITION. 4 O'CLOCK NO 77 ~> PRESIDENT TALKED ON CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS Made a Report of iU "Post-War ^ Revival" at Butte, Montana. AND HE TOLD SOME FACTS Told of the Change From Millions 1 of Unemployed to a Reverse Condition. ON BOARD HIS TRAIN MUST STAND PAT ON LIQUOR RULING OF COURSE- No Other Action For the Administration Officials to Take. (By The Associated Tress) Butte, Mont., June 29.—Presenting liore In nutty, A report on the post•war revival of business, President Harding declared that national mobilization by business, labor ami government forces to overcome dopressron "was no lens accomplished/than the groat cooperation to win the war." Outlining tho steps taken under government direction to wipe out unemployment and to restore- confidence in business, the president asserted "If our procedures have been rather plain and old fashioned, they have yet produced resu.t.i that justify pride and require no apology." Qcttinp Better and Better. "If we. are accused aZ gclllnc no- Tfboro In pnrllcular," he added, "we may very well reply that at any rate we havo been able to atay right here, that wo regard it as a good place to stay, ami that day by day we have "been getting letter and better. I ant disponed freely to admit that- some other folks havo dad more oxolt'oment than 'we have had; but a good-many people in this world would be glad to oxchanyo their stock of excitement for a modest sharo in our American accumulation or wimple contentment and dinner tabic necessaries." Reports on Conditions. The president said he did not present tho report on revived business conditions "as ibe accomplishment of a particular administration or 'the justification of any. party's •claim upon tho public confidence. Rather, it is placed before you as testimony to the supremo sense and sound genius of a nation -which could make Its cooperation extend to a continent and its altruisms embrace a hundred million of humanity," he added. "That is what the American people have done In tho last two years. No other peo- j>lu has had the fortune to parallel . the achievement;}. None other.looks out today upon ao clear a horizon and I venture that we stand only In the doorway of the new era. Thus convinced, I know that you will permit me to add just one word for tho pride the satisfaction and tho grarl- tudo which the national,administration feola in having been able to contribute flomothiug of suggestion, leadership and direction to this accom pllshment. Wo will not claim much; lor tho-great end could have been attained only through the complete unity, In spirit, purpose and patriotism of the whole American Nallou... * Unemployment Changed. "Two years ago wo made -a careful census of unemployment in tho United StatOB and found four million five hundred thousand or five million workers without Jobs. That was bad, but since then matters have been reversed and if nowadays wo are disposed to worry about tho problem of unemployment, wo have to consider ways and means to fill a half million or a million jobs which want workers and can't find thorn. That JB tho simplest picture of the industrial evolution of the last two yours. That Is the bedrock foundation on -which American business aud American administration have erected their confidence that_ Oils people will not he led Into the'paths of dovlous^experl mentation, the mazes of untried economic theory, the labyrinths of doctrinaire altruism." How It Was Dons. Among the efforts taken to achieve this end, tho president mentioned removal of tbe Tt'and of government from the tills of tho bankers, reductions In the fedqral reserve discount rate, inauguration of tho budget system, lightening and more equitable distribution of tho tax, burden, tho arms conference, revival of the federal farm loan board and tho flhanco corporation and the national conferences on unemployment and housing.

HUSSEY,STATEFIRE MARSHAL, TO RESIGN He is to Quit His Job and Take Management of Insurance Company. •Washing-ton; June 29.—Oreat Britain's rejection of the American proposal for a prohibition twelve mile limit has left administration officials no alternative It was said authoritatively today, but to await tbe will of congress as to revision of the law and meanwhile to refuse admittance to ship liquor stores under ponalty of seizure, i Comment Not Available. Formal comment on Foreign Secretary Curzon's announcement In parliament yesterday was not available, the "Washington government having, received no official report on the subject and no reply througn diplomatic ohannols to Its treaty proposals. Tnere Is no doubt that Marquis Curzon's Implication that the ship liquor issuo was raised by the United States to afford a leverage for a treaty agreement on rum smuggling is not in accordance Willi the facts a.s they are understood by "Washington otficlalB. In tbe American viewpoint, tho two matters have nothing to do with each other. It is pointed out thatthe cases whioh resulted in tho recent supremo court decision, prohibiting of liquor carriage by. foreign ships In American waters resulted from One initiative, of foreign ship companies whioh sought to prevent application of the ruling by filing injunction -suits agatinst treasury officials.
