(Special Dispatch to Tie .'Reformer.)
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.

For a while and when I 'resident

the r'elicits wi.iili really materialize. Mr.

The Buttermilk in Wirthmore helps to prevent white diarrhoea,

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
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.-

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.
Whether the bonus goes through and
lias'to be killed bv tin presidential veto
as seems certain 't congress persists, tue
pilitieal phase of the ervmomy program
will cause more and more trouble .as the
next few months draw members of con
gress into their respective contests for
renomination and re-ch ction. 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? Till'
danger now is that it will be reduced
