House ha at last pa.-.-ed anotlier bonus
bill, though i:l:i .u.-l identical in lorrn
with the one passed two eais ao aru
which the Senate laid on the hii! a;
Harding's request. It remains to
seen what will be done with the pies
ent bill, with all of Wall Street op
posing it. The bill itself is satisfac
tory to no one. The soldier hose
"adjusted compensation" entitled him
to less than $50 can get it in cash; the
others have to take a certificate of in
debtedness which finally bp' .i.is due
in 20 years. Meanwhile, if he vnnt
to get money, he has to borrow it ii
a bank and pay a larger rate of intei -
certificate is as much the obliga-
tion of the government as is a Liberty
Bond and should entitle the owner to
the lowest rate of interest at which I
money can be borrwed. It is difficult
to understand why the soldier should
be allowed to borrow only 50 pev cer:t
of the face value of "the certificate;
almost any bank will lend 75 ner cent
of the market value of a certificate of
stock in a railroad or industrial cor
poration if the stock is listed on the

these stocks at times fluctuate
