President Harding, In his talk Tues
day in New York to his fellow news
paper publishers, sought to make it
clear that in advocating American
participation in the international
court of justice he has no thought of
leading the United States into the
league of nations. “Friends of the
league,” he declared, "have beclouded
the situation by their unwarranted
assumption that it ia a move toward
league membership.” But the practi
cal politicians who manage the re
publican party machinery know how
easy it will be to becloud the issue in
next year’s presidential campaign.
They fear to lose the strategic posi
tion which opposition to the league
gave them in 1920; the president’s
appeal to the republican platform
pledges in years past will make little
impression on the politicians who
regard platforms as contrivances to
get in on and not to stand on.

navy, are on the pay rolls of the
Federal Government. The civil em
ployes of the government in Wash
ington alone are now about 30 per
cent more numerous than prior to
our entrance into the World War.
But for the partial decentralization
of the government’s Washington ac
tivities the increase there would be
larger. This decentralization, made
necessary largely by the unwieldly
mass of employes, tends toward an
other trend that is characteristic of
big republies—the setting up of ad

itiaLs. With our Federal Reserve
cities of national finance, our reg

the work of the Veterans’ Bureau and
the Internal Revenue Bureau—all fol

outlines—we are beginning percep

made up the Roman Empire. But
that is another story.
The persons directly on the pay
rolls by no means include all whose
wages or salaries come, wholly or in
part, out of the treasury of the United
States. There are many thousands
like those in so-called agricultural ex
tension work, who, while nominally
on the pay rolls of the states or
counties, are paid in part by the Na
tional Government. There are other
thousands employed by persons or
concerns doing work by contract for
the government. Including those in
the Army and Navy and those in

Treasury, it is probable that, in strict
truth, not fewer than a million per
