July 5.—Passage of the $4,300,000,000 soldiers’ bonus hill by an overwhelming majority at an early date was clearly forecast today when the Senate, by a vote of 40 to 4. decided to make the measure unfin ished business This action gives >he bil la privi leged status and will keep it almost constantly before the Senate until it 1 is passed. The vote on the question 1 of taking it up surprised even the 1 most a "dent supporters of the meas | ure with its one-sided ness. The only votes cn-t against it were those of , Senators Glass, Myers, and Underwood Democrats, and Warren, Republican. On the final roll call, several more i votes probably will be cast against the measure, but it is believed that today's ' roll call furnishes^ a fairly accurate test of strength. A few perfunctory speeches prob ! ably will be made before the bill is placed on its final passege. It will ; then be sent to flic House, where it : is expected action will be equally prompt and favorable. President Hard i | ng. it is believed at the eapitol. will j -ign the bill without delay. Today's action by the Senate stood out in s rik;ng contrast to the reluc fa nee of the In -1 tipper house to face i the issue aised by the soldiers’ bonus bill Although the House passed the bill last year the Senate held it up I^caiisf* IT was. TPHrUll ll'iums v'' ho tax burdens of the country. The* cost of the bonus has not diminished since then, but several new factor J have appeared to influence senators. | In the first place, the payment of the I bonus would he scattered over a pe- | riod of 20 years so that the average ; annual outlay will hardly exceed $200. 000.000 In the second place, the pay ments will not begin until next year, another Important consideration is the fact that the hill postpones the qnes tion of additional tax levies to meet I he cost of the bonus. o MOTOR BUS OVERTURNS Texarkana.
