Big Bond Issue
Urged to Co ver
All IT. S. Debt
J. W. Bache, Banker, Tells
House Committee Refund
of Liabilities Would Aid
in Equali/ina: Tax Burden
Offers New Revenue Plan
1 Per Cent Lew on Sa!e*
Would Net 2 Billions a
Year; Opposed to Surtax
WASHINGTON, Dec, 17.?Flotation
of a bond issue into which would be ;
refunded virtually the entire bonded ?
indebtedness of the American govern- !
ment was proposed to the Ways and
'?Car? Committee of the House to-day
by Jules W. Bache, a New York banker,
as a means of equalizing the burden
of taxation resulting from the World
Bonds of the new Issue proposed
by Mr. Bach? would run for fifty
year?. They would bear a scale of in?
terest rat?s starting at rt per cent
?'or the first five years, 5'4 per cent
the second five years. 5 per cent the
:h;rd period of fivo years and a perma?
nent rate of 4-\i per cent a year there
after until maturity. Mr. Bache de?
clared that such an i?sue would serve
to bring Liberty bonds back to par,
while at the same time permitting le?
nt o: 2 per cent of tho outstand?
ing Liberty bonds each year.
The New York banker also submitted
a revenue program which he declared
would easily produce $3,500,000,000 an?
nually. Included in it was a sales tax
o? 1 per cent, which, ne estimated,
would yield $2,000,000,0u? annually.
Continuation of tne excise taxes yield?
ing about $300,000,000 a year and the
enactment of a tariff whsch would pro?
duce $'?00,000,000 annually income also
were embraced in the program.
Would Abolish Surtaxes
As regards an income tax Mr. Bache
rec( mmended the enactment of a flat
normal rate of 6 per cent on all in?
comes, with an exemption of $5,000.
Taxes on incomes below $5,000, he de?
clared, were small and did not come
from persons from whom the govern?
ment should seek revenue. He declared
that the supenncome or surtaxes had
resulted in driving wealthy men to in?
vest all their money in tax exempt
securities and in "causing every cross
roads tVown in the country to issue a
lot of securities that some day will
cause a lot of grief."
In discussing the sales tax the wit?
ness declared that probably after the
first year, only one-half of one per
cent would be required. The sales tax,
he said, would bring in more money
and with less disturbance to banking
and business than any other tax that
could be levied. He advocated, how?
ever, that a Federal licensing system
be created in connection w3th it, re?
tiring every person or firm doing a
isiness of $6,^00 a year or more to
be licensed. This ?would provide a
?ystem of checking up on all persons
upposed to be paying taxes, Mr. Bache
declared, as well as supplying the gov- !
<*rnment with other information rela
tivi to its own resources.
Abolish Tax in China, He Urges
The Way3 and Means Committee also i
heard testimony to-day from H. H. j
Arnold, of Shanghai, president of the j
Ar-erican Chamber of Commerce of
China, who advocated the removal of
ti e application of excess profits and
other taxes to American corporations
doing business solely in China. Appli?
cation of the taxes, he said, worked to
the benefit of competing foreign firms,
who were not taxed by their govern
In connection with consideration of
tax revision by the Ways and Means
Committee one of its members. Repre?
sentative Treadway, Republican, Massa?
chusetts, introduced in the House a bill
which would provide for a tax of one
fourth of 1 per cent on ail bank de?
posits except savings accounts. He
estimated that the tax would produce
$1,500.000.000 annually and his bill
would have the tax collected by the
banks at the time of deposit.

i Middy Hazers to Remain
; Congressmen Informed There
Will Be No Dismissals
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.?Informa?
tion reaching members of the House
! and Senate to-day was that none of the
, students at the Naval Academy now be
?? ing tried for hazing practices would he
dismissed. It is understood the ac
! cused students are to be punished by
1 one method or another, but. the danger
| of dismissal ha3 been ended, for the
present, at least.
The information was regarded as he
? ing so authentic that Senators and
Representatives, who have kept up a
i constant bomhardment of the Navy
! Department and academy officia!", and
who have made many threats within
' the last few days, now tike the attitude
that the controversy at the academy
[ should be permitted to take its course
: without outside interference.
Report on Flayti Completed
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.?The naval
? court of inquiry which investigate,!
: charges of indiscriminate killing of
! natives by American marines in liayti
! ha? completed its report and it is now
[ in the hands of the judge advocate
j general of the navy. Secretary Dan
| ;e!s said to-day he expected to receivp
I the report to-morrow or Monday and
that he would make it public as soon
as he had reviewed it.
Education and Welfare
Department Is Favored
Expense of Creating Two New
Federal Bureaus Makes the
Combination Probable
from The Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Dec. IX.?Out of the
agitation for a new department of
Social Welfare and also a new Depart?
ment of Education may come a single
department to be known as the Depart?
ment of Education and Social Welfare.
Senator Kenyon, chairman of the
Education and Labor Committee, con?
ferred with a number of Senators to?
day about this matter. Senator Ken?
yon has offered a bill fov a department
of Social Welfare, which ^ias the ap?
proval in principle of Senator Harding.
Mereover, there is pending in Congress
the Smith-Towner bill for a Depart
ment of Education. The pressure for
both of the propose?! new department*
is ptrong.
i Reasons of economy will prevent the j
i establishment of two new departments.
! Such speeches as that of Senator War
ran to-day, giving warning of the nee?!
? for economy, make it difficult to get
; even one new department or any new
| agency of irovernment established.
However, Senator Kenyon has come to
[ the conclusion that if his bill for a
: department of Social AVelfare 73 com
j bined with features of the bill for a
I Department of Education, the measure
j for the. combined Department of Edu
I cation and Social Welfare will bo
: passed in the new Congress.
i Senator Kenyon has been assured by
I a number of Senators they will favor
I the combined department and he will
! revise his bill accordingly.
The proposed Department of Social
j Welfare or Public Welfare is intende i
to include all agencies concerned in
promoting social justice or social wel
; fare. Senator Harding spoke in favor
of such a department 111 the campaign.

Newark, as well as four in New Orleans.
This rapid development has been made possible only
through the whole-hearted appreciation of our efforts
by the public. This appreciation has its source, we
believe, in four well defined reasons:
The quality of our candy;
A belief in our sincere desire to provide the best
possible service;
Our policy of "Fall Weight?16 ounce? of
