MELLON ASSAILS THE NEW BONUS BILL Opposes It Even More Vigorously Than Its Predecessors—Con demns Bank Loans. Washington, March 12.—Assailing the new Republican soldier bonus bill as proposing ‘‘a dangerous abuse of the government’s credit!,” Secretary of the Treasury Mellon, in a letter to Chairman Fordney of the House Com mittee on Ways and Means, asserts that the actual cash outlay by the government in the next three and a half years under the plan would be ?1,200,000000, or as much as the pro bable cost of the original cash bonus scheme. The secretary of the treasury ex presses more vigorous and sweeping disapproval of the latest bonus plan than any of its predecessors. He un sparingly condemns the bank loan feature whch he asserts would clog the country’s financial machinery with “frozen credits,” producing in flation. Much wiser than this scheme, he says, would be the financing of the bonus by the issuance of bonds, and in any event if the bonus is to take 'the form of endowment insurance, it would be better for the government to loan directly to former soldiers on their certificates from the start. ' “There is no way,” concludes the Mellon letter, “by which the Ameri can taxpayer can avoid the burden, and if a Jbonus is to be imposed it is far bettei5 for all concerned that it be placed on a direct and definite basis and paid for each year out of cur rent revenue. To do this at the pres ent time will necessarily mean the imposition of additional taxes tor the purpose.” Fordney Not Impressed. Mr. Fordney received the leter last night, but declined to comment on it today. That his opinion of the prac ticability and wisdom of the new plan has not been changed by the argu ments of the secretary is indicated however, by the congressman’s asser tion that he expects the bill to be favorably reported without change to the committee. He said he would lay the Mellon letter before the commit tee for its information. In view of the avowed object of the new bill to spare the government any great expenditure in the next three years, one of the most surprising fea tures of the Mellon letter is the asser tion that it would cost immediately as much as the cash bonus plan. Mr. Mellon estimates that if 70 per cent of the veterans choose the certificate plan, 23 per cent take farm and home aid, 5 per cent selected vocational training and 2 per cent the land set tlement the direct cost t otlie gov ernment during the fiscal year 1923 will be $289,954,000. In the fiscal year 1924 the direct cost would be $216,340,000; in the fis cal year 1925, $128,013,000, and in the first half of the fiscal year 1926, $615, 882,000, or more than $1,200,000,000 within three and a half years. These estimates are based on the assump tion that half of those who take cer tificates will borrow from the banks and default on the loans, thus causing the banks to demand the money fror the government after October 1, 192! The total cost to the government ft the period of 20 years during whit the certificates run, under these e timates, would be $2,995,740,000, n including probably $100,000,000 adt tional a year after 1923 if the la setlement aid plan is developed. Th ultimate cost is somewhat less tftE members of the Ways and Means Con mittee had estimated. Some have et timated that the ultimate coat migh be nearly $5,000,000,000. -o BURGLARS ARE THWARTED Amateur Thieves at Center Point Fir ed Upon While at Work.

Little Rock, March 13.—Under fav rable climatic conditions the velvet ean is the most vigorous growing sgume known to American agricul ure. In one season it makes a mass t leaves and vines that completely overs the ground. Vines 20 to 30 eet long are not uncommon. There re no taproots but many tleshy lat rals extend in all directions to which re attached hundreds of nitrogen ;athering nobules. This makes the elvet bean valuable for fall pasture .ndj for enriching soils that are defi cient in nitrogen and humus. Being i. typical plant the velvet bean was inavailable to farmers in the north ern half of the cotton belt until varie ies were developed suitable to the emperate climate. The Georgia and Alabama varieties ire the best for Arkansas. The Geo 'gia is a vigorous grower and matures In 110 to 130 days. The Alabama matures six weeks earlier than the Georgia but it makes a heavier growth than the latter. The Yoka homa, the earliest variety known, is not popular in this section. Velvet beans are planted with corn or alone. Planted in alternate rows with corn, six quarts of seed are re quired per acre. With corn the beans make an excellent pasture for steers in the fall or for hogging down. When seeded alone, either for pas ture or for green manure, one-lialf bushel of seed will be required per acre. Do not plant the seed until the ground is warm. Many farmers wait until the corn has had one or two cultivations before planting the (jeans. -o Notice of Hale.
