NEW BOND ISSUE LIKELY WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.—Congressional leaders are today looking to the Amer ican banks to carry the government through a period of financial stress dur ing the fiscal year 1921. With an almost certain deficit of three billion doHars for the fiscal year 1921 leaders In congress are hopeful that thl^ may be carried by short-term treasury notes sold to the banks. If the banks are unable to absorb short-term notes to the extent of three billon dollars, there are but two alter natives, new taxes or anew bond issue and both democrats and republicans in congress are opposed to such means of meeting the deficit. WAR TAXES HAVE BECOME UNPOPULAR. Already there is a popular cry against war taxes, and to make new taxes would bring a storm of protest against congress that would be reflected in the elections. The same holds practically true of anew bond issue. Congressional leaders do not feel that the public wants another bond issue. * “I do not know how congress is going to meet the 1921 financial problems of the government,” said Representative Henry T. Rainey of Illinois, a veteran of the house ways and means committee, today. ‘‘Facing us In the next fiscal year we see expedltures piling up to a huge total of approximately nine billion dollars. We know that revenues from all sources Un der existing law will not exceed In all probability six billion dollars. There is a certain deficit of about three billion dollars facing the government GOVERNMENT MUST CONFRONT DEFICIT. ; ‘The government must make up this deficit in some way. Ways open are by increased taxes and new taxes; bond is sue or shoTt term treasury certificates sold to banks. But the banks mav be unable to lend to the government all the mopey It needs.” Congress today faced one of Its busi est weeks both In committees and on the floors of the house and senate. In the senate the bl-partlsan treaty confer ences were to be resumed In Senator Lodge’s office; the Russian Investigating committee was to proceed with the hear ing of Ludwig C. A. K. Martens; the commerce committee was to hear western shipbuilders regarding a permanent mer chant marine policy; the military affairs committee was expected to finish its work on the army reorganization bill; one navy subcommittee was to Investigate the morals of the Newport, R. 1., train ing station and another was to continue its investigation of the navy depart ment. The appropriation committee has three appropriation bills before it which have passed the house and expected to put them all iu shape within ten days. The agriculture committee hoped to hu ish its deliberations on legislation to reg ulate the packers.
