Sketch of President
Warren G. Harding's Life
Wuncn Qnmullei Harding, twenty
ninth president of the United States,
uiih born November 2, 1805, on his
grandfather's fanu Just outsldo Uio
vlllago of liloomlng Grovo, In Morrow
county, Ohio, IIo wus descended from
two pioneer American families, hardy
Holland Dutch on the ono sldo nnd lib-erty-lovlng
Scotch on tho other. Ills
father, Dr. Georgo T. Harding, la still
n practicing physician In Murlon,
C despite his advanced age of seven-ty-nlnu
years. His mother wus I'hoebc
Elizabeth Dlckcreon Uaxding.
Mr. Harding wus a self-umdo man In
the best nenso of tho phrase. Ho
worked on his grandfather's farm and
attended tho vlllago school until he
wns fourteen years old, and then he
entered the Ohio Central college at
Iberia. Ho worked his way through
that Institution by cutting corn, paint
ing his neighbors' burns und helping
on tho grudlug of tho roadbed of tho
T. & 0. 0. railroad. Ho also pluycd In
the Tillage band and was editor of the
college paper.
When ho graduated from tho col
lege, Warren went to work In tho vll
lago printing office. At tho tlmo he
was nineteen years old, his father
moved to Marlon with tho family and
there uided Warren financially In gain
ing control of tho Marlon Star, of
which ho was publisher until after ho
ossumtd tho oltlco of president of thu
United Stales. Already he knew how
to set type and to do all the other
duties of n printer, und when tho llno
typo was Introduced ho learned to op
erate that machine. Always he car
ried n3 a pocket piece the printer's
rule he used In tlioso days.
Tho Stur was his Idol nnd he was
very proud of It and of the more than
friendly relations that existed be
tween him and his employees. There
was never a strlko on tho paper, and
about un.iicvU jei..., ago lie Instituted
a proflt-Bhnring plan whereby the em
ployees received dividends that were
paid them In tho form of stock In the
paper. Mr. Harding was Identified
also with the Industries that sprang
up In Marlon as it grow from a town
of 4,000 to n city of more than 80,000.
He was & director In n bank and In
several manufacturing companies, and
wns a trustee of Trinity Baptist
Hla Rise In Politico.
As editor and publisher of a lively
Republican paper It was Inevitable
thnt Mr. Harding should tnko an nc
tlvc Interest In politics, and his tit tain
ments brought him to the front In the
state. Ho wns a member of the Ohio
sennto from 1000 to 100-1, and then
served ns lieutenant governor of the
state. In 1010 he was tho Republican
nomlnoo for governor, but was defeat
ed. In 1015 he was sent to tho United
States sennto, serving until 1020, when
he resigned to mnko tho campaign for
the presidency. In the ureconvontlon
campaign that year ho had been
looked on ns ono of tho possible nomi
nees for tho high olllce, but his defeat
In tho prlmnries for election of dele
gates from Ohio seemed to spoil his
chances. However, tho conservative
loaders of tho Republican party pre
vailed In tho gathering In tho Chicago
Coliseum, and Mr. Harding wns nomi
nated. Ills campaign was based large
ly on opposition to American partici
pation in tho League of Nations, and
was so successful that In tho election
r November 1 ho received '101 elec
toral votes to 127 for James M. Cox,
tho Democratic nominee. Ho wns in
augurated March 4, 1021, with n de
gree of simplicity In the ceremonies
that pleased tho American people.
-- " . v r
Glassed, when In Uio senuto, ou a
conservative, President Harding did
not depart murkedly from conserva
tive lines when In tho Whlto House,
though his supporters always said hu
was as progressiva as tho good of tho
country warranted und ns conditions
permitted. He, like President Roose
velt, hud u great coal miners' strike on
his hunds, and lubored hard nnd with
a meusuro of success to bring It to n
peuceful and Just end.
Arms Limitation Conference.
The outstanding accomplishment of
his administration was the great Inter
national conference for the limitation
of unnamont held In Washington, open
ing on Armistice day, November 11,
1021. At hiB Instigation the confer
ence was authorized by congress und
after feeling out the big powers nnd
dialing them ngreeuhlc he Issued Invi
tations to Great Ilrltaln, France, Bel
gium, Italy, Japan, China, the Neth
erlands and Portugal. Kncli country
sent some of Its most eminent states
men us delegates, thoqo of the United
States being Secretary of Statu
Hughes, chairman of the conference;
Senators Lodge of Massachusetts and
Underwood of Alabama, nnd ex-Sccro-tnry
of State Kllhu Hoot.
Tho conference ndjourned February
0, Vd'2'2, ufter negotiating these
A covenant of limitation to naval
armament between the United States,
Great Britain, France, Japan and Italy.
A treaty between the same powers
as to the use of submarines and nox
Ions' gases In warfare.
A treaty between the United States,
Great Britain, France nnd Japan re
lating to their Insular possessions and
their Insular dominions in the Paclllc,
with a declaration reserving American
rights in mandated territory.
.-ntv between the nine powers In
the coiuerence relating to principles
nnd policies to be followed In matters
concerning Chlnn.
A treaty between tho nine powers
relating to Chinese customs tnrlff. lle
causo France refused to consider the
limitation of land armament at the
present time, that pnrt of the confer
ence fell through. But what It did
achieve was considered n great step
toward tho attainment of world peace.
Tho trentles were soon ratified by the
United States senate and the British
parliament, and tho other nations fol
lowed suit, though for n long time it
wns feared France would not nccept
the pacts. However, President Hard
ing lived to see them ratified by tho
French chamber nnd senate.
Favored Entering World Court.
Mr. Harding had not been lnm? In
the Whlto House before It appeared
that he did not favor entire Isolation
of tho United Stnts from European
affairs, but believed this country
would have to do Its part In the res
toration of Huropo to peace and sta
bility. This feeling beenme more evi
dent early In 102a when ho proposed
that America should accept member
ship in the International Court of Jus
tlco which had been founded under
tho nusplces of the League of Nations
Tho President was as Insistent as ever
that this country should keep out of
the league, but believed the court was
or would bo Independent of the greater
organization. Against tho advice of
some leaders of his party, ho reiterated
this ndvlco on several occasions, and
his plan formed tho Bubject of some
of his addresses on his last nnd fatal
trip through tho West. Ho did not
think it would split his party, and
boldly continued to advocate It. Not
withstanding this, It was assumed to
ba almoit a arUlnty that PrMMenH
Harding would bo renominated In tho'
Republican national convention of
Mr. Harding's homo life was Ideal
savo that ho had no children. Ho and
Mrs. Harding, who was Miss Florenco
Kllng of Marlon, wcro dovoted to each
other und sho wns always his true
helpmate, both In Ohio and In Wash
ington. In the national capital Mrs.
Harding ipilekly mude herself loved
by all with whom she came In contact,
and during the Western trip site wns
nioro agger even than tho President
to meet und mix with all kinds of
Hit Western Trip.
President Harding's Alaska trip wns
originally planned for tho summer of
1022. Ho Inherited the so-called
Mrs. Warren G. Harding.
"Alaska problem." Alnska seemed to
be on tho down grade, with decrease in
population and mining output, threat
ened extinction of the fishing Industry
nnd numerous other unfavorable
symptoms. The situation apparently
culled for the establishment of a defi
nite Alaskan policy. Various pluns
were discussed, Including u transfer of
control to the Interior department
from the score or more of governing
burenus. President Harding's plans
for 1022 came to nnught, but this year
he determined to get first-hand Infor
mation. He was accompanied by Sec
retary Work of the Interior depart
ment, Secretnry Wallace of the Agri
cultural department nnd Secretary
Hoover of the Department of Com
merce, all of whom are Immediately
concerned In the Alaskan situation.
The President left Washington at
the end of June and Journeyed leisure
ly to the Pacific Northwest by speciul
train, mnklng speeches at St. Louis,
Denver, Helenn, Spokane and other
cities. Incidentally he visited two of
the national parks. First he went to
Zlon In Utah, the newest of our na
tional pnrks, which is a many-colored
gorge cut by the Rio Virgin. Next ho
visited Yellowstone In Wyoming, cre
ated In 1872, the first national park In
history and largest and most famous
of the nineteen pnrks of our system.
Here he motored, bonted, fished, fed
the bears and hnd a good time. His
plans nlso Included n visit to Yospmlto
upon his return trip, but that wns
Saw Much of Alaska.
The President celebrated tho Fourth
of July In the United States and then
started for Alnska on tho U. S. trans
port Henderson. His Alaskan trip wns
extensive. He went the length of the
new government railroad and visited
the capital, Juneau, und the principal
On his return trip Mr. Hnrdlng
stopped off nt Vnncouver, creating
precedent In that he was the first
American President to step on Cana
dlan soil.
The President arrived at Seattle
July 27 nnd reviewed from the bridge
of the Henderson n fleet of a dozen or
so battleships under command of Ad
miral II. P. Jones, each of which gave
him tho nntlonnl salute of twentyone
guns. Even then he wns suffering
from the aliment thnt resulted In his
denth, and soon after thnt tho rest of
his trip, which was to Include n return
to tho East via tho Pnnomn canal, was
President Harding mnde n public ad
dress at Seattle, setting forth his views
on the Alaskan situation. Some of his
points were theso:
"Alaska for Alaskans."
"There Is no need of covornninnt.
managed, federally-pald-for hothouse
development . . . there must bo no
reckless sacrificing of resources."
"Alaska Is destined for statehood In
n few yenrs."
"Where there Is possibility of better
ment in federal machinery of admin
istration, Improvement should and will
be eiTected."
Other conclusions presented by Pres
ident Harding wero:
Thnt generous appropriation should
be mnde for road building.
That the federal government should
bo more liberal In encouraging tho
technical, scientific nnd demonstration
work in agriculture.
That restrictions should bo laid on
the fisheries and on tho forests.
That tho development of tho coal
mines must await tlmo and economic
Thnt tho government should retain
ownership and operation of the Alas
kan railroad.
