CLARK URGES ALL
TO TRUST WILSON
Speaker Says President Bears
Heavier Burden Than Any
PROSPERITY IS PREDICTED
Pressing of Federal, State, County
and Municipal Works Advised.
Wilson Rated Among Great ,
Men in American History.
PHILADELPHIA. March 17. Speaker
Clark, addressing the Friendly Sons of
St. Patrick here tonight, eulogized Pres.
ldent Wilson "as among the great Pres
idents whose names can be counted on
the fingers of one hand."
"It Is no exaggeration to say that he
bears a heavier load than any President
Elncie Lincoln has borne." the Speaker
Speaker Clark reviewed at length the
work of the ljemocratic Congress,
which, he said, had been accompliuhed
with the aid and approval of Repub
lican and Progressive votes, and pre
dicted that no political party could
carry 10 states on the repeal of the in
come tax. He declared the country was
apidly recovering from the depression
of the European war and to speed pros
perity urged that all Federal, state,
county and municipal works be pressed.
Trcaldent Bears Heavy Load.
"The Congress has done its work,"
he said. "Senators and Representatives
have returned to their homes. The
President remains in Washington be
cause of the ticklish situation in which
we find ourselves by reason of the
trans-Atlantic war and the Mexican
civil war. It is no exaggeration to say
that he bears a heavier load than any
President since Lincoln has borne. No
man. no men. can relieve him of his
burden. His troubles, being purely ex
ecutive in character, are his and his-
alone. In the very nature of things he
knows more what is going on abroad
than docs any other man in America,
because he has better means of informa
tion. "Every good citizen, without ref
erence to politics or religion, should
trust him and uphold him in this
crisis of our country's fate. May God
Sive him the wisdom, courage and
strength to keep us out of entangle
ments with foreign nations and lead
us in the paths of peace.

two years we will redeem the re

but nevertheless Rome was built. There
is a limit to the power of men to
labor montally or physically. Two
years were not enough time in which
to place our extensive and patriotic
programme upon the statute books,
though the 63d Congress sat more days
and enacted more constructive legis
lation than any other that ever met. I
have not even the shadow of a doubt
that the historian of our times will
pronounce it a great congress. We
have fought a good tight. We have
kept the faith. The people will in
dorse and reward us.
"The brilliant Benjamin Disraeli,
Earl of Beaconsfield. declared that
contemporaneous foreign opinion as to
a public man is identical with the final
verdict of history. Most assuredly,
then. Woodrow Wilson will be rated
among the 'great Presidents whose
names can be counted on the fingers
of one hand.
Shoe w on Other FiKtt.
"For more than a half century Re
publicans have "pointed with pride' and
Democrats have 'viewed with alarm.'
Now the boot is on the other foot. At
the present juncture Democrats "point
with prii and. alack. Republicans
view with alarm. They were fore
ordained and predestined to dwell in
the cave of Adullum.
"These complainants divide them
selves into two classes first, those
who. with coimtenanrcs sorrowful as
that of the Knight De la Mancha. but
with glee in their souls and hope in
their hearts, vociferate, purely for po
litical effect, that the country is going
to "the demnition bow-wows." In their
case the wish is father to the thought.
The second class, suffering from the
mulagrubs. is much larger, consisting
of honest, hut timid, persons, forever
seeing ghosts, who in fat years look
forward fearfully to possible lean years
and who are greatly worried by the
lamentations of the Cassandras and
marplots aforementioned. These two
classes keep up a howl tliat the coun
