Sales Tax Favored.
Washington, Feb. 22.--The financing
of the s.oldier bonus by means of a
manufacturers' or wholesalers' tax
was discussed in what 'was described
as a "general sort of way" at two ses
rionQ today of the 'Republican members
of the house ways and means commit
tee dealing with this subject. It was
announced that there would be no fur
ther sessions until Friday and mem
bcr.s indicated that there was no dis
psltilon to hurry a decision.
Representative Lngworth, ranking
member of the special committee, said
it was his judgment that a gentral
manufacturers' and 'wholesalers' tax
similar to that in force in Canada
would be recommended. He hought
the rates would be lower than thosc
in Canada as treasury exiperts had es
timated that the Canadian rates, i]

Mr. Longworth said he did not thint
the bonus bill would be ready for thi
house this week or next. 1He state(
that there was some disposition or
the part of many house members t(
postpone action . the measure foi
a time to await the opening of refund
lig negotiations betiween the Unitec
States and the debtor nations. 'Callinj
attention that the refunding commis
sion had been appointed by the presi
dent, the Ohio member said there was
reason to believe that before July th<
Inited States would have some of th<
refunded bonds in hands.
The president, Mr. Longthworth weni
Ion to say, undoubtedly would not b(
opiiosed to the sale of some of th<
foreign bonds .in this country to ob.
tain money for the bonus. lie adde(
that before this could be done con
gress would have to enact a law giv
ing authority to the secretary of th
treasury to so dispose of the securitie,
as the presCit law provides that hi
must use them in retiring a part o:
the public debt.
The Ohio member said the presiden
was opposed to the enactment of honu:
legislation without any provision foi
raising the funds. If the propose(
sales tax iprovision was be- it in thi
house, lie added, the bill th n wouk
simply be a charge against the treas
ury. It was his opinion that if ,
sales tax were reported the hous
would be given an opportunity to vot<
separately on that tax.
A separate vote unas been demandeu
by opponents of a sales tax who con

the fight that is now regarded on al
sides as almost certain. Opponent:

finally to the house. They did no
