Arguments for and Against Made. Big
Business is Attacked.
Washington, Aug. 28.-Senate debate
today on the soldiers' -bonus bill con
tered largely on the land reclamation
amendment offered by Senator '.\c
Nary, republican, Oregon, but neither
that nor any of the other amendments
offered came to a vote. The unanimous
consent agreement limited discussion
on amendments to"20 minutes to each
senator will become nperative tomor
row and leaders were hopeful that a
final vote on the -bill itself could be
had before adjournment.
In the discussion today Senators
'Wadsworth, of New York and Sterl
ing, of South Dakota, republicans,
voiced their opposition to the bonus,
although Senator Sterling supported
the reclamation project. Senators
'Nicholson, republican, dolorado, and
1Hei in, democrat, Alabama, supported
the 'bill, the former also urging in
favor of the IMcNary amendment.
'Senator 'Nicholson attacked big bus
iness men opposing the bonus, Men
tioning particularly the United States
Steel corporation and the Standard Oil
company. lie charged that the latter
company prolited through "uncon
scionable" prices charged during the
war and declared that it iII became
Judge E. H. Gary, (:hairman of the
board of tile steel corporation, to op
1ose adjusted compensation for the
veterans wlen his company had made
"great CGroflts" during tile war.
"Selator WVadsworth was particu
larly vigorous in his attack on the
mllsure. lie declared that the bonus
could be fillanced only through taxes
now or later and that tile American
peol e ha(d re'ached a limit in the bum
deln they could bear. Also lie argued
that the veteran; themselves, their
-wives and their children wouild have to
work hut the harder in tihe years to
come to 'ay back the money3 the form
er soldiers received, which, lie Conm
tended- would be insifielent to afYord
anry lasting belefits.
In presenting his reclamation
amendment, Senator McNary told the
senate that it afforded all opportulity
for congress to do "a great tlhing
in empire building" by reclaiming arid
lands in the west and swamp and cut
over lands in the south aid east. :ie
arguedoalso that it would give oppor
tunity to veterans desiring to get back
to the land, to acquire homesteads
with government aid aqd operate to
maintain a much needed 'balance be
tween the rural and urban population.
The declamation plan received the
suppoit also of several senators from
the west and south and was unoppos
ed in the debate. Senators Ransdell,
Coulsiana and -Fletcher, Florida, demo
crats, pictured the beneflts that -would
accrue in their states.
