Senator McCumber answers-most of the
criticisms liy saying the estimates as to
what tle lxHins would ist are grossly
exaggerated and that it wouldn't cost the
country more than S.T.O.iHMi.iMMl to
.S4UM0,n(M the tirst year.
Secretary Mellon, however, has done a
!t of close liguring and has made enough
! muuiries as to the psychology of the re-
turned soldier to know that out of the
i various forms of soldiers aid from grants
j of land, vocational training, paid-up in
surance certificates .payable at death, and
'cash bonuses of Soil every three months,
' t he" average soldier will take the cash.
.It is .argued, of course, that if everybody
took cash tin total government expense
: would be less than under any other plan
for the whole thing would be over wilh
sooner and the big administrative ex
penses in vocational training and land aid i
would be reduced to a minimum. l'ut
.while this may mean a smaller total pay
ment it means a much more difficult one
to finance, for, the " whole burden
come at the start and tins is just tlie j Spitsbergen ami to
time when . tiie treasury cannot stand ; from the Norwegian
any more strain. . .Mr. .Mellon estimates 1 Stavauger.

would require at least .$sr,0.(MM).(MMI. One
of the treasury officials who makes it hi
business to furnish statistics on every
kind of tax has said that the soldier Itonns
will tax every eight -persons to pay the
b oms of a single soldier, i
Soldiers Will Have to Pay.
I'.ut there's still another" effect which
the treasury hasn't 'emphasized hut
which students of government finance
know to be true the soldiers themselves
will have to pay the-bomis through indi
rect or direct taxation and the consequent
effect on tht'ir-own business opportunities
will be considerable. Jir in tintes of
business depression they suffer like t(ie

time it-has loaned tor its clients over twenty million dollars on farm mortgage .
security, without the loss of a single dollar to any investor. It has over seven
mfllion dollars of outstanding business, representing a good will, the value of
which it would be difficult to estimate. -
The Company is also fortunate in its representation as farm mortgage cor
respondent of the Prudential Insurance Company, of Newark, N: J. This
connection has proven, a very satisfactory and profitable one. As a further
mark of confidence, in the Company and its officers, the Insurance Company
is now taming over to the Vermont Loan and Trust Company some two
million dollars of additional business already developed, which will increase
" our outstanding business to ever nine million dollars. '

of our rapidly growing business. -

lent both la Spokane and New England. It has operated at a profit contini
uously since 1846, and has an unbroken dividend-paying record, on a high
