The Most Vicious Soldier Bonus
Measure Yet.
The latent bonus device of Fois?nky
and his faithfuls of the Ways and
Means Committee for Rouging five
thousand millions of dollars out of
the American people would *legrade
the Amerkjan dollar and wri'k the
Republican party. No party can raid
the Treasury tor five billions of dol
lars for its own political advantage
and retain the confidence- at the folks
back home.
Checking out live billions of the
people's money for the bonus doesn't
seem to mean anything to Congress.
AH Congress lias to do is to commit
the country to the debt and then let
the people find the money to pay the
debt. And finding the money to pay ,
tlie debt means more and more taxes.
The Treasury can't pay out money
until it gets the money in, and the
only way it gets the money in is by
squeezing it out of the people.
If Congress w ere conscientiously j
for the bonus its frenzy to jam u
bonus measure through wouldn't be
so offensive. A conscientious act is
nn honest act. A conscientious act
may be stupid, but it is not vicious, j
A conscientious act. "whatever its
measure of intelligence, is not born
of selfishness. The bonus raid on the i
Treasury by Congress is born of self

liad no part in this latest Way3 and,
Means monstrosity. It is 100 per'
cent. Republican, to the shame of the
Republican party. As an example of <
economic wisdom it is a blight.
The o?icinal plan of this measure
gave the pawnbroker and the usurer i
n chattoe at these bonus note.". The
present draft makes it impossible
for n soldier to borrow money on his
bcniii certificate from these source?.
l>ut In eliminating the pawnbroker
nstf the usurer the measure puts a
ftcuand on the banks of the country
that would prove a calamity. It de
mands that they loan to soldiers 85
t>er cent, of the face value of their
bonus notes.
T'ut to meet thee bonus loan de

precipitate a nationwide disaster, <
strewing the land with bankruptcy
and wreckage.
Killier this, or the Covernment
would be compelled to furnish the
money to the banks for these loans.
And in view of the fact that tbc Gov

Mythical Tax Reduction.
The 11 .v 1 h n administration an
nounces a "rcdix Hon" in the city
tax rate to a flat- figure of $2.74 on
???{ U |100 worth of property. If Huh
actually meant a saving of money to
property owners it would he great
pood news, because it would mean a
i ut of from two to nine points from
the tax rates for 1921, which were
th? highest in the history of the
uiy. It would he the first definite1
sign that New York <ity had aban
doned Its wild, reckless spending.
Ilut unfortunately the reduction in
the tax rata does not mean a reduc
tion in the cort of running the city.
There is no indication in the city
budget that expenrllturcr, arc to he
reduced. The 1922 budget is (350.
[ 601,507, compared with a budget of
?343,5r50,0:;9 for 1921, which was the
largest budget up to that year. The
amount of money which must be col
lected in taxes this year to supple
ment other receipts by the city is
estimated at $2^0.1100.000 by the
Comptroller. This item makes uo
provision for contingencies; even so.
thi3 $2$$.000,00!i in taxes equals the
amount collected in 1921.
The joker in this schem? to make
\'ew Yorkers believe they are going
to pay smatter taxes is the assessed
values oti which the tax rate is based.
To enable the Hvlaa administration
to keep within the law and still fix
a tax levy high eaowgh to raise the
money for its spendiugs thiii year's
valuations of real and personal prop
erties for purposes of taxation are
fixed at S10J60.5n9.SS0, and on this
amount the tax rate of 2.74 will
yield the $2SS,OOfcftO# needed to meet
the budget. Last year's valuations
were $10.1S(?,207,279. If this year's
tax requirements were collected on
the property valuation ot 1921 the
tax rute would be above 2.80, the
highest average rate for all the
counties in the history of the city.
Gatti-Ca.sazza's New Term.
The extension for three years from
1923 of Mr. QATTf-CiUilu's engage
ment as managing director of the
Metropolitan Opera Company, an
nounced to-day by the officers of that
organization, will be received by the
operaguing puhlic as a suitable rec
ognition of his accomplishments dur
ing the fourtocn years of his ruler
ship and an assurance that the pol
icy he has followed to the satisfac
tion of the patrons of the institution
v.iU bo 'naintained in the future.
The Metropolitan is now the most im
portant lyric theater in the world.
To Gatti-Casazza this preeminence
of the Metropolitan Opera House in
the musical world is in large meas
ure due. No other operatic theater
now equals the Metropolitan in its
breadth of enterprise or in the ex;
cellence with which its plans are
carried out. It may be said that no
other similar undertaking has the
material support on which the New
York opera may draw, but it would
| not rcflect particular credit on auv
impresario to win unique faruo at
the cost of reckless and unprofitable
expenditures. It is one of the char
acterUttes of the administration of
Mr. Gatti-Casazza that operatic pre
eminence and business methods have
been united. The highest artistic
standards have been reached, but
obedience has been given to conscrva
tive business principles, on which
every gre:it enterprise in its final
analysis raust l?e based if it is to

agement has not been marked by the
development of many great singer*
anywhere in the operatic world. lie
lias obtained the services of the best
when they were to be reasonably ob
tained. The business of producing
opera is not one that can be made to
run parallel with other commercia'
undertakings. Mr. Gatti-Casazza has
done more than any of his predeces
sors, however, to instill business
methods into the conduct of an opera
Possibly the most important result
of Mr. Gatti-Casazza's fourteen
years of management at the Metro
politan is the recognition of the
opera house as an institution of New
York. To-day less than ever before
is the public led to attend its per
formances bcause of the appearance
of this or that individual singer.
New Yorkers aow go to the opera.
They do not go on account of this
or that artist, as their predecessors
in large numbers did. O? course
such an attitude of mind could be
brought about only by raising every
detail of each production to a uni
formly high plane of merit. In spite
of most discouraging labor condi
tions in recent years the orchestra
has been made an organization of
splendid excellence. The chorus has
been trained to an equally high de
gree of skill. The scenery surpasses
In beauty and appropriateness the
settings used In any other opera
house in the world.
These reasons would be sufficient
to explain the wise course of the
directors in renewing Mr. Gatti
Cabazza'n term of management. To
them must be added a liberal but
conservative business policy which
has made his administration unprece
dented in its prosperity.
A Froify Blessing.
Let those persons who arc disponed
to make grouching comment on tht
wintry debut of March take a second
thought on the subject, l.et them
consider the balmy weather of a year
ago and what that balmy weather
did to American fruit crops.

The crust of snow and sleet on their j

sap back near their roots. This is

blossoms. The fruit crop of 1922 is
not yet secure, but March's frosty
advent has saved it from one peril.
Too Much to Ask of a Child.
A European writer, Rudolph Re
qcadt, has a scheme for studying
the human animal. He is now look
ing for a small tropical Island, rich
in fruits and small game. On this
island lie and his scientific colleagues
purpose to turn loose half a dozen
boy and girl babies. Concealed from
the infant the students will see what
the young of the species can do when
it is left to its own resources. The
watchers will take notes and make
motion pictures.
Such is the plan. Of course it will
fail unless the children are well be
yond the toddling stage. A child
brought >ip after the fashion that
has prevailed for thousands of years
is unlikely to thrive on berries and
other foods that grow within its
reach. At the end of two day3 the
pitying spectators will be leaving
milk for their subjects.
Mr. Reqcadt's ide:i is net new
More than twenty years ago. in a
short story called "Primordial." the
late Uuuertson caused a bov
and a glvl, each aged about three
years, to be cast ashore on opposite
: sides of a lonely island. The boy's
struggle for existence, his pursuit of
| food, his discovery of fire and. at the
end. his meeting with the other cast
away. made-a literary classic. Every
reader was thrilled; few believed.
It's too late, Mr. Reqi adi. Civili
zation has led us so far from nature
, that there is no way for the infant
to wander back. Of all the mammals

Lloyd George's Crucial Year.
Political observers in England note
j that David Llotd George, the British
j Prime Minister, has come bang up
1 against the onerous job of preventing
history from repeating itself to his
disadvantage. Of Dr.siofcThikes ii
is written that "his influence in the
councils of his countrymen reached
its climax in the eight years between
the peace of Philocrates in 31C B. C.
and the battle of Chasronea In 335
B. C." Moreover. It was just eight
years after Jim s C.ksab formed his
i alliance with Pompet and Chassis
l in 6ft B. C. that this coalition was
wrecked and C.csar elected to pro
ceed thenceforward on his own ac
count. The eighth year has a defi
nitely established reputation as a
crucial one in politics,
i he star of I.i/>td George has
dominated the political firmament of
Britain for seven years. During all
this time he has been incessantly
tackled and heckled by Liberals, Con
servatlves, Laborites. Unionists and
Independents, and never has he so
much as batted an eyelash. When
his opponents wanted battle he gnve
it to them, good and plenty. When in
131S a general election seemed de
sirable he gave them that too. When
his opponents condemned the Ver
sailles treaty he champloncd it and
then modified it.
Ilia political foes accused him of
shaking hands with murder by open
ing up trade with Russia, but he
replied that the welfare of Europe
demanded the resuscitation of Rus
sia. and the English people were deaf
to his critics and ignored the fact
that no trade with Russia developed.
The opposition wanted recently to
make an issue of economy. Llotd
George grabbed its thunder by ap
pointing the Geddes economy com
mittee. whose report, if adopted,
would save millions where the oppo
sition's proposals would have saved
only thousands.
In addition to all this, the oppo
sition has been practically leader
lens. The names of Grit, Balfocii
and Cecil have been mentioned as
possible candidates for the Premier
ship, but until now there has been
only negligible response from the
electors. But the eighth yenr of the
reign of the smiling Welshman is
nigh: besides, the fifth year since his
election will expire in 1923, and Brit
i-h political tradition says that no
Premier shall go longer than five
jears without a vote of confidence
from the electorate.
It seems therefore that* a general
election in the not distant future is
likely. AVhat will happen to the
coalition which has backed up the
Premier nil these years Is a pres
ent concern of Englishmen. There
j has b"en talk of a new Nationalist
: oarty to be beaded by the Prime Min
i 'ster, bis letter to Auste.n Chamrek

Exchequer that Unionist backbiting
! and sniping would have to stop lend
j ?lor t > the belief that the Premier
| is ready to jettison any who do not
feel like joining him In the new
party move. Certainly the letter 13
no indication that the Premier will
try to conciliate the recalcitrant
members of the coalition simply to
win their support.
In the light of the past the rumor
that the Premier intends to resign
and that his letter was intended to
pave the way Is not convincing. He ,
lias never shown himself a quitter. ^
On the contrary, he always has been
eager to join issue with liia oppo-j
Rents. The only reason for paying
any attention at all to the rumor
that Li.ovb Glokci. might resign is,
the fact that it originated with the
I'all Mali Gazette, a London news
paper reputed to be well informed
with regard to the political plans of
Li.oyu Gkokc.k. He might, however. I
resign as leader of the coalition and
throw down the glove to his foes. j
The plight o'f Li.oyd Gkor?e is not1
nearly as gloomy as it is pictured by i
his opponents. Sir G*>?oe Yolngkks i
recent bluff was called by Li.o^n
Gkorcc, aud Yockoj-ii was obliged to
admit his weakness. The Premier's ?
star still outshines all others; with-',
out a strong leader there would be no
chance for any or the other British
leaders to wiu against him it he (those

position, who is making at letist one

It is not the Premier who looks,

Lower Telephone Rates.
Telephone rates can now be re
duced j per cent, in New York city
end T per cent, in other parts of the
State, as ordered by the Public. Ser
vice Commission, without endanger- ;
lng either the efficiency of the tele
phone service or the financial posi-j
tion of the companies. This is all to
the good. So far as it takes into ac
count the lower costs of material and
the somewhat lower level of wages j
the commission's order cutting rates!
is another indication that conditions'
are returning to normal.
However, the criticism that the
New York Telephone Company has
set aside too much for depreciation
and has accumulated enough undi
vided profits to warrant a reduction
in rates cannot have figured im
portantly in the considerations which
led to the Public Service Commls-,
sion's order, even if the criticism did j
come from the commission itself. I
During the war the problem of tele-1
phone service was a physical one. It
was a question of supplying a suffi-1
cient number of telephones with ad
equate service to meet the necessities
of the Government, of manufacturing j
plants and of offices engaged in war
work. All non-official individuals and
businesses not contributing to the
nation's war effort had to wait for
installation of telephones until after
the war emergency.
But after the war ended no other
public utility In the State or nation
restored normal service more quickly
than did the telephone company. The
telephone company, in comparison
with concerns loss ably directed, ex
perienced a minimum of difficulty In
making the transition from war to
peace conditions.
Tl.-e House of Representatives has
once more cut from the Agricultural
Department appropriation bill the
item providing $300,000 to pay for the
distribution of free flower and vege
table seeds through members of Con
press. When this gesture of economy
has been made in the past the Senate
has always replaced the Item in the
bill. This year Its suppression may be
sustained In the final draft, of the bill,
for economy Is the watchword in the
Capitol, and the free distribution of
?eod Is * useless waste of taxpayers

Damroach Greeted by Sunday Audience
Symphony Orchestra Pleases at Aeolian Hall With
Fifth of Bach's Concertos.
It has been noted in this place on
several occasions that the Sunday after- j
noon audiences of the Symphony Society
seem to assume a kind of proprietary
interest in the organisation. Aeolian
Hall, where the concerts are given, is
rnore couducivc to sociability than the
cavernous spaces of Carnegie Hall, and
the meetings of Sunday l>eoome, as it
were, family affairs. So there was an
especial friendliness in the greeting be
stowed upon Walter Damrosch when he
appeared on the platform yesterday
afternoon to conduct the llrst Sunday
entertainment since his return froin
The program was variegated. It be
gan with Dvorak's symphony. "From the
New World." The second number was
the fifth "f Bach's Brandenburg con
certos. the edition being that of the Bach
Society made by Alexander Siloti. who
w?3 at the piano. The final number was
Debussy's "Iberia."
The performance of the Bach con
certo for harpsichord, violin and flute,
with accompaniment of strings, gave the
audience unquestionable pleasure. It
would be strange if it failed to do so,
for It is a delightful composition, in
which not the least enjoyable move
ment is the Irish jig at the end. Pos
sibly Much did not know it was Irish,
but atiy New Yorker will be sure of it.
Doubtless, too, the Margrave of Bran
denburg. who is preserved in the P**?"
of history oecause he was an . ss duous
collector of concertos, regarded this as
one of his cnoice specimen*.
These excellent noblemen of the past
who had the laudable habit of keepin?
private orchestras, provided for pos
terity much better than they knew. We
cannot enjoy performances of these con

The fourth violin recital of Jaacha
HeifeU in Carnegie Hall yesterday
afternoon took place under conditions
approaching the sensational. The crowd
of those unable at the last to gain ad
mission thronged the outer lobby with
evident hopes, and finally a small por
tion of it took the law into its own
hands, and forcing its way through the
closed doors at the right of the music
entrance, made a dash for the inside of
the hull and Into the crowd which
already packed the standing room space.
Forced belonging to the management,
with detectives, were quickly on the
scene and the music loving invaders?
both men and women?were sought out
and removed from the hall, but not with
out a bodily struggle on the part of
some of the men.
It all happened just after Mr. Heifetz
had left the stage following a perform
ance of Charlier's transcription of the
"Chaconne," by vitali, and hence with
out disturbance to the artist. The vio
linist's other selections were I.alo'a
"Symphony Kspagnol," Bach's "Air on
the (} string," the Alter arrangement
of Haydn's "Vivace," an air from Rim
sky-Korsakov'a "Coq d'Or," Wieniaw
ski'a "Tarantelle" and the "Palpiti" of
Air. Heifetz was in splendid form and
In the expression of feeling he reached
some loftier heights than is his wont.
The audience overflowed onto the stage.
Harold Bauer, pianist, and Tablo
Casals, violoncellist, gave a Joint recital
at Town Hall yesterday afternoon when
they played together an all Beethoven
program. These famous artists have
been heard here frequently in past
years in Joint entertainments, but not
within the most recent seasons. The
occasion was evidently one of rejoicing
that they had again chosen to appear
together. Their audience filled the
hall and their various offerings were
received with delight. The program as
announced was changed. The sonata
listed as the second number. In G minor,
opus 5, No. 2, was played as the first
number In place of the sonata in P
major, opus o, No. 1, and for the second
number was substituted the C major
sonata opus 102, N'o. 1. The remaining
works, the "Variations on a Theme "by
Mozart" and the sonata In O minor,
opus 5, Xo. 2, were given as listed.
The compositions furnished admirable
variety in showing how the master com

As to Professor PetrunUcvitch, I
vould ask him to name one single man
to whom this country owes a debt of
giatitude who has been an active ex

country owes Its existence. Its preserva
