SIDE-TRACKING SERVICE MEN.
It is to be hoped that now congTess has finally rejected the:
peace treaty, it will proceed to carry out some of the construction;
legislation necessary for the nation's .welfare, which has been'
before it the past year. j
Of all the subjects upon which action was requested by Presi-j
dent Wilson, only one question has been settled the return of
the railroads. All the other great issues are still pending.
Most disgraceful of all is the failure of congress to do any
thing for the ex-service men. The treatment accorded those
who sacrificed everything for the nation's welfare in the hour
of need is contemptible. Only upon insistance of the president
was care of the wounded provided for the balance of the pro-!
gram congress marks time. j
Former soldiers, sailors and marines are victims, along withi
peace, of partisan politics. To pass relief legislation might react j
favorably to the democratic administration, and to refuse any
action might injure the administration hence the four million
ex-service men can wait for glittering platform promises of the
- It was early in December, 1918, that the president requested
congress to enact legislation caring for the war veterans. He
renewed his request in May, 1919, and again in December, last.
But nothing has been done.
Tired of waiting, the veterans are now demanding relief,
either in the form of bonus or such other method as deemed ad
visable but congress has so far turned a deaf ear, declaring that
bonds or money,-to the extent required, would demoralize the
government's finance. At the same time they have no scruples in
letting the profiteers demoralize individual finance.

THE UNTAXABLE MELON.
Stock dividends represent capital and not income and hence
are exempt from income taxation, according to a recent decision
of the federal supreme court, which decided the mooted point by
a vote of five to four. Under this decision, the government must
refund tens of millions and lose a large amount of prospective
The decision opens the way for big corporations to evade
double taxation, by "cutting a melon" that is by distributing sur
plus in the form of stock dividends instead of cash, which would
be taxable. It puzzles a layman to understand why the recipient 18t? was
should not have to report such a gift dividend as taxable income.
Of course, if the stock presented earns dividends, they are
subject to taxation, though repetition of the process of increasing
the stock would enable the evasion of taxation indefinitely. How
the plan works is shown by the American Car & Foundry Com
pany, which is ready to divide its surplus of $31,321,521 into
stock dividends equal to $104 a share. Another instance is that
"of Morris & Company, packers, holding $52,823,864 surplus or
$1,7(50 per share. The Standard Oil, Republic Iron & Steel,
National Biscuit and numerous other industries are in similar
position. Hence the boom occasioned in securities by the decision.
New York papers generally approve the decision, holding that
it removes "hampering burdens and restrictions from capital"
freeing it to engage in the development of industry ; that "to tax
investments, in addition to taxing earnings, is the surest way to
discourage enterprise, block expansion and curtail prosperity."
Let us hope, as a result of the decision, capital will really
be more available for industry and an era of expansion follow.

A WINDY DAY.
The wind was blowing hard today, it nearly blew my rags
waves, "and we will give you rest!'
Slowly I took a few steps forward
and then stopped.- Again came the
mournful sound of the wind, and it
seemed as though the clouds dropped
lower, when far out I saw the whit
ened cap of an incoming wave. Sud
denly I made up my mind that when
that wave came near enough to the
shore to make It possible I should
nccept the Invitation of the sea and go
to its embrace!
Thrill of Anticipation
I watched its incoming with an
aweu thrill of anticipation. Nearer
and nearer it came! Would it mean

moment I should know. I drew near
er and nearer to ttie.rall, a part of
which had been broken earlier in the
day by wind and storm. - . .
Carefully I calculated the seconds
it would take for my wave to recah
me, and then Just as I decided that
it was time and had placed my hands
upon the broken rail through which
i meant to leap to that blessed bourne
I felt a strong grip on my shoulder!
and a voice, in which was blended
pain and exasperation, said sternly:
