U.S. MAY RELY
UPON BANKS IN
Congress Leaders Anxious
Over Meeting 1921 Indebted
ness of $3,000,000,000.
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
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
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
; ‘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.
