Copyright' l'XTJ: WASHINGTON, .Jan.. ,2S The . kov crnment of .the United States faces the biggest deficit in its history if the sol dier 'nus bills soon' to be passed by congress' si re to become law. The. determination of congressional leaders to pass the bonus is expressed in the face of White House and treasury department opposition so that only a presiden'ial veto can v-ave the situation. lint the painful facts which now are coming' out in connection with the bonus agitation b-.-that the govT'iunent will have a deficit for V.'rJ'J and l'.vjli of ap proximately S;:tH(.(KK).(iO(( whether there is a bonus or not. All the hue and cry li bout economy has only been of avail in preventing the deficit, from becoming l;u?er bin the truth is the congressmen up for re-election next fall will have to choose between the number of votes ex peeted to be gained by pausing a bonus bill and the number of votes certain to be h'.-t through the protests of the large army of taxpayers whose burdens will prove to he irksome ns in the years immediately following the war. The re lief from taxation which it had been con fidently hoped might come in the next two years is vanishing into thin air. Treasury officials make no effort to conceal the truth, much as the members of congress responsible for the present fiscal situation may be inclined to gloss it over. So long ;s there were to be no added taxes and it was still possible to .are down expenses, the treasury held out hope that the budgets for V.)2'J and might be balanced and the deficits wiped out. but "with a big bonus bill staring the treasury in the face. Secre tary Mellon has come out with a state ment of the situation which is causing t!" more thoughtful members of con gress much uneasiness. Sure of $:iOft.O(.o:tO Deficit.

K, avoidable when authorizations of expen ditures are being enacted during the. process of budget closing but ways are provided for relatively cay adjustment j without .added taxation." Now Secretary Mellon discloses the fact that the budget estimates for the year 1!CJ arc 'substantially -correct" ami while be knows congress can avoid the deficits if it wishes, be flatly de clares jS.'WXUtOO,(rtK must be cut out of the intended expenditures in order to balance the budge t. On top of that Mr. Mellon confirms what has been rumored for some time that a heavy shrinkage in tax. receipts is imminent an J that the estimated deficit may grow still larger when the tax returns are all in. He holds the business, depression as partly responsible and insists that under the circumstances new or extraordinary ex penditures are not being thought of for a minute. The .:Wi0,00CUVM) deficit is made up in this way : The budget deficit for V.i'2'2 amounts to 824.1 0.H0 and for over .1(!7.- t)!)0,0x, ami these figures make no al lowance for the S."0.0(M.tKX requested br the shipping' board to meet claims $7,t;0.lXM relief to Ilussia.

The best estimates available to tbr trensiirv of the cost of the lofius is ap pvoximaOdv three and one-third billion dollars, of which at least ,N"i0.tHM.ioO would fall in the first two years of its operation with varying amounts in the intervening year and nn ultimate pay ment of more than J?lM14.000.MH in the ,(Hh year. The secretory of the treasury has vir tually continued- thefaet that' .mduey can bo 'expected immediately either on interest of principal from the allies, and he insists that if any does come from abroad it must go by law to pay the ex isting Liberty bond holders. So the SKVMH'O.IHMJ for the next two years would have to be raised by direct taxa tion or the government would face a deficit of more than fine billion dollars a vear for the next two years. The treasury flunks business has been taxed too much for its own gorwl and that a sales tax imposed as an addition to existing taxes would only be passed on to the consumer and incerase the cost of living. The sales tax itself i gaining more friends in the treasury but as a substitute for th present income taxes and not as an additional burden. A Political I'uzie.

Did this congress reduce the taxes? Did it ac tually reduce the government expenses any appreciable amount? The budget is sfill around four billions annually as it was estimated by Secretary Houston under the hist udmtnistral ton. Will it 1m reduced below that of increased?

US The cost to the government for the vocational training of men who were disabled in the World' war jumped more than .S'-V 0O0.O0O between the months of Septem ber 'ami Novemler, according to figures prepared by the United States veterans' bureau. - ; '' -Col. Charles Wj Forbes, director- of the .bureau, attributes this increase di rectly to the "denn-up" campaign- in which thousands -of disabled War veter ans, ignorant of the assistance the gov ernment offers them, were discovered ami placed in schools and shops, where they are receiving instruction to over come the handicaps of their disabilities. On Sept. 1 there were S2,7J'S-men re ceiving training under the direction of the bureau. Worth Studying, Perhaps. Rutland Herald.)
