Practical obstacles have arisen to pre
vent the linking up of the bonus with the
proceeds of the allied war debt. .One is
the fact that the original Liberty loan
acts provide that any payments made on
the principal of the money lent to for
eign governments shall be placed to the
payment of Liberty loan bonds and inter
est thereon. If the plans which have
been discussed for the last 'week to col
lect interest on the foreoifrn debt and
pay it to the soldiers were to go through.
it would mean the repeal of that pro-'
vision for the Liberty loan act of Sep-j

nothing to do with the re-election

out thaf. whatever name it may 1x
called sales ' tax or anything else it
means an added tax burden to Atuerican
business and that the real danger in the

be a single expenditure of $1.MMI.HH.-
(HM) now may easily become a triennial
or a quadrennial affair, dependent upon
American inlitical contests, anil that the

an important precedent for the future
The American government lias been pay
ing an average of rvUTo.fHMMiOO during
the last four years to Civil war veter
ans and the fact that the United States
has paid pensions to the soldiers of other
wars will be seized upon, it is predicted
as a justification for making the soldier
bonus si permanent source of income, es
pecially if the sales tax is once imposed
and the money appears to be easy of col
lection from that source.
Treasury officials say that no matter
what the title or form of taxation, the
new sums must come out of the pockets
of the American taxpayers as a whole.
It is beginning to look as if the issue of
the next congressional campaign will be
a postponed reconstruction with a bonus
to thos. who made sacrifices during the
war or an uarly reconstruction with
promises of increased prosperity to sol
diers as well as civilians.
