and murder occurred oh the night of
December 22, and is; the most sen
sational , happening in tne soutnern
part of, Davidson in several years.

from . all over Davidson ounty.' All
members of this crowd were armed
but despite this fact there was ab
solutely no disorder. According to
information from Davidson county,
Mr. Owen and his wife and young son
had completed the day's business and
were in the act of leaving the store
in their automobile but had only
traveled a few feet when a loud re
port was heard and at the same time
the wind shield of their automobile

mediately opened fire. The neoro
took to his heels and Mr. Owens fired
several shots at the fleeing black.

A YEAR IN ADVANCE
-A NUMBER
THE TAX ANDi .
BONUS QUESTION
Coolidge Administration Faces
Dangerous Situation Over
Tax and Bonus Question.
(By David F. St Clair.)
Washington, January 1. Indications
now are that the (joouogo aaminis-
tration will soon face a dangerous di
1 lema over bonus and tax reduction
i leristration. The action of the house
ways and means committee in its at
tempt to shelve the bonus by giving
consideration first to a tax reduction
Mil KoaAil nri fVio linpa nrnnnaad hv
Secretary Mellon has moved the
f rfends of the bonus in both parties
in congress to swift counter action.
Secretary Mellon contends that tax
es can not be reduced as he proposes
with the granting of a bonus. On the
other hand former Secretary McAdoo
declares that a much greater reduc
tion in taxes can be made than Mr
Mellon proposes and an adequate bo
nus be provided for by the issuing of
bonds on the basis of the Liberty
bonds with $100,000,000 interest ' and
sinking fund to take care of these
bonds. . ,-
The friends of the bonus are advis-
ed that no tex reductioB -measure
shmlll bp enacted withotft nrovihW
tu fi 4,o j ko
Mellon proposal should be allowed to
pass, it would mean the defeat of the
bonus. The bonus Republicans in the
house have therefore called a confer
ence for January 10 in order to pre
sent a bonus bill to the house on Jan
uary 21 so as to take precedent of
the tax bill. .
But the tremendous pressure of the
public oh congress for tax reduction
has further alarmed the friends of
the bonus. When congress adjourned
for the holidays, the bonus members
felt safe in their prediction that they
had a wide marginal two-thirds ma
jority in both houses for the bonus
and could pass it any day over the
President's veto. But some weak
kneed senators have, according to re
ports, declared they could not vote
for a bonus in the face of the Presi
dent's veto.
The bonus people are now consider
ing the plan of tacking the bonus bill
en to the tax reduction bill as a rider
and they have sent word to the White
House that if tfie President vetoes
the bill in that shape and thus de
prives the soldiers of a bonus he will
greSS sK Ty:;i- ::? ' .-
Without doubt the bonus forces are
in an overwhelming majority in both
houses but as time passes that major
ity appears to be shrinking in the
senate. The anti-bonus people are
now counting 26 senators for their
side and they believe that by the
middle of January they will be able
to count 33 senators opposed to the
bonus. That number or one over a
third of the membership of the sen
ate would render the President's veto
or any separate bonus bill effective.
To meet this situation a bonus rider
f hrt fha -1 V 1., '11 .. U .. 1
vv. vma. uui occiim iu uc auouiuiiy
necessary.
But if such a move is attempted it
is certain to precipitate one of the
most desperate battles ever fought
OUt in COnO-rPSS. Tho fnnli'Hn-o
I . . iwxv.ca
i are now engaged in organizing what
, is known as an administration bloc in
1 both houses for just such a crisis
I The motto of this bloc is "savf the
! President." A tax bill with a bonus
; rider perched on its back would be
j like carrying a death's head to the
White House. The most emphatic
passage in CnoliHn-o'a
j to congress was his opposition to the
bonus
The brunt of opposition to the bon
us cornea from the men and corpora
tions who made enormous profits out
of the war. They well know that the
backers of the bonus have it in mind'

determined to figfy with the despef.
ation of robbers if necessary to keep
their loot They know the income tax -f-in
the higher brackets will nnt H

vocates have their way. In reality
this bonus battle is an effort to take
from the war profiteers their plunder

will be filled with the sirenta of hn,l-
holders and giant corporations for th
