: Washington, March 12.-The new
ipdlers' po.nus.Pill as drawn by House
*ePunlih ns was attacled tonight b'y
Oecretary Mellon as involving "it dan
*erous abuse of government credit."
RnlyIng to a renniest for the treas
ury's comment on the new bonus bill,
Nir. Mellon in, a letter -to Chairman
Wordney of the House ways and means
pommittee, made 'public tonight by the
treasury, sharply criticized the fea
tures of the proposed measure provid
ing for loans by banks upon adjusted
service certificates as indirect and
"forced" borrowing by the govenment.

t'iellon contended 'that "it is danger
ous and unwise" to attempt .t. avoid
the cost of thle abonus for the time be
Ing.
"There is no nyay," he said, "by
which the American -tax payer can
avoid the burden, and if a bonus is
{o be finp' ed it is far better for all
toncernet 4at it be 'placed upon a di
Veet and definite basis and paid for'
each year Qut 'of current revenues. To
do -this at this time will necessarily
mean thle impositionl of additional tax
js for tile purpose." The secretary es
(imated the cost of the bonus under
the bil-l, considering eAch of -th~e pos
iblie choices offered to veterans, at
more than $1,200,000,000 by January
1, 1926. Whatever form the bonus
*1caSurle might take, he asserted,
)ould mean a c6s't to 'the government
ffrom $300,000,000 to $400,000,000 for
b next three or four years and pos
ilble continuing liabilities thereafter
$fmore than $200,000 a year until 1943.
