As for the issue' itself, it is expected to bob no ayain in '.'"'l whn the next presi dential primaries are under way. 15y that time, however, some Ucpuhlieau leaders hope to revise the -entire revenue program and 'to make speHur provision lor a fund to pay the bonus. This re vision will be attempted by means of a "ales tax which Mr. Harding now openly favors for the soldier bonus. This com mitment to the principle, of the sales tax conies at a time when revenue !av- are not being revised but just the same, it has brought deep satisfaction to tie1 ifopononts of such a tax who would have been greatly assisted a few months ago when they tried to get a presiden tial declaration on the subject to help them substitute a .-ales tax for all tin other kinds of taxes which finally found their way into the l'.i'Jl tevetjue law. Knows He Defied i'resident. t There's a significant bit of informa ticn. incidentally, . in the statement of Representative Fordn-.'y, chairman' of the house ways and means committee, that, he did not expect Speaker (Sillette, now in Florida with the chief executive, ttt bring back an informal messifse to the house on the lxiniis ipiestiou. Mr. J-Vrdney knows the -J'resident's views and would prefer not to have them at ibis time. He could have had thetn when he visited Mr. Harding just before the latter left for Florida. The I'resi dent told callers afterward that. the bonus .picstion was discussed only inci dentally and that he didn't outline bis views to Mr. l'ordney because they were all well known. This incident, together with the Fordney declaration that he isn't expecting word from the I'resident, is generally taken to mean that the chairman of the house -ways and means commil tee believed it important for the success, (.f .the lit publican party this fall t go ahead and pass a lionus bill in the house where -l.'iTi members of both parties are up for re-election. Too strong opposition from the I'resident might binder the pas-age of the bonus bill in the house and spoil the record of the party in the house at least, where it is ever so much more important than in the ,senate where only one-third of the membership changes in the fall elections, and of . that number" certain members will be re-elected irrespective of bow they vote on the bonus question. The politics of the situation is to permit the house to express itself and thereby place upon the senate and the executive the responsibility for postponement of the cash bonus.
