V ' THE BONUS BILL. !

There is no real nation wide demand for a soldier bonus'measurei ' Many6f the ex-service men, the direct bene- flciarles of legislation of this' charac ter; ' frankry'opbro!d,' the bill., 4"th Up under-;8uch-a urdenot ' taxatltm Hi tilscriminately i will not only produce ;a.A jprgy. of spending-and extravagance but; ,l-,.'Hl 'fitil ; further c.paraly ze the productive energies of the nation How many young negroes for example, who would receive, a cash bonus of JCOQ . to $500, would work until this money was gone. Unfortunately there are many of the other color who would - ease up a ' bit on their daily labor ifthey suddenly came into pos session of several hundred dollars. -Representative Padgett, of this, dis trict, voted against the bonus bill. In doing bo he unquestionably reflect ed the overwhelming' sentiment f the people of -.this' district.. ; In Maury cbunty there is practically no supoi t for the " bonus h.'ll; , From the battle scared veterans of the .

Pleasant Bank Are r Captured In New York (Continued from Page One). the Mt. Pleasant postofflce. The tele gram from tho postal inspector corrob orates the telegram from the Pinker ton Agency, saying that war savings stamps registered at the Mt. Pleasant office have been found In-possession of known yeggmen in New York. Immediately after the robbery the Farmers & Merchants Bank offered a momentarily to receive definite infor; mation from New York that the iden tity of the men arrested In New York has been definitely established as be ing the jobbers of the Maury" county institution.. v. , , " - The j robbery , of the Mt. Pleasant bank took place In the early-spring, and no more Ideal njght for such work could have been selected had the! robbers' waited foi- months. The night' was blustery and rainy,''and the streets i of the phosphate city Xvere deserted. Without ; lnteruption the yeggs pried their way into the bank' building and immediately pro ceeded to blow from its hinges the the heavy vault door. Gaining ac cess to the vault, it is believed that the yeggs worked rapidly, box after box was systematically opened and rilled, but all of these boxea belong ed to emitomers of the bank, being the boxes stored there for safe keeping and containing liberty bonds, war sav ings stamps and other valuables. Not ono single safety deposit - box was broken into, although this could have been accomplished In the same man ner thecuBtdjpers'.lboxes were open ed, and with the same implement, a hammer.." In the safety deposit boxes were liberty bonds 'and other, securl- ties. in. the amount of many thousands of dotlarByi but these were passed up entirely by the yeggs, as was a large sum of money belonging to the bank on the floor of the vault. It appeared that the robbers-were Intent upon get ting away with the property of custo mers rather than that of the bank. The total loot secured amounted to . to approximately $30,000, and it is be-, Heved that this was loaded into waiting automobile and driven hur riedly from the state. The robbery of the Mt. Pleasant bank was but one of scores of similar , reward of $1,000 for the arrest : and conviction of the yeggmen, and since robberies, which took place-aboflt ths that time the officials of ' the bank same time iff Kentucky, Tennessee have lxen untiring in their efforts to land Alabama, and nfmd.t be one the 'chase to earth the safe bloworg , .'of a systematically planned chain of report of ' the morning wnmfon Vw ' ' F.inl, ofHciat pre eijwct'ii utmost fohhrg - -- - . :.
