Bonus
Copyright, 1934, By Paul Mallon.
WASHINGTON, March 15. That
gr-r-reat legislative battle In the
house over the soldier bonus was no
battle at all. It takes two opposing
eldea to have & battle.
The truth Is that President Roose
velt's legislative generals picked out
a nice soft spot on the battlefield,
dropped a pillow and lay down to let
the bonus Juggernaut roll over them.
More than that, by their tactics
they actually invited men in their
army to join the opposition.
That would be strange In war, but
not in politics. No suspicion of
treachery exists. There are no hard
feelings.
Everyone seemed to understand that
the bonus cannot become a law any
how; that if some democrats could
get political prestige out of support
ing it, they might as well get it; and,
that after all, it was Just in fun any
way.
Flight
Mr. Roosevelt did all he could be
expected to do. He announced twice
that he would veto the bill so it could
not become a law.
The second announcement caine
about a week before the vote. It put
the house democrats in a very touchy
position.
The situation within a certain
southern state delegation Is Illustra
tive of the inner condition. This state
has eleven congressmen, all democrats.
When Mr. Roosevelt made his an
nouncement, five of them decided to
stand with him and oppose the bonus.
Five were determined to vote for the
bonus regardless of Mr. Roosevelt,
One was doubtful.
But when the vote was taken a
week later, ten voted for the bonus
and one voted both ways-first to
take the bonus up and then against
its passage. J .-1 ,i. -
Chances
The reason for the change was that
they saw such good friends of Mr.
Roosevelt's as Bankhead, Rayburn,
Jones and Prosser opposing the presl
dent's wishes.
The average democratic' congress
man did not have to be told officially
that if such outstanding democrats
were going to risk the wrath of the
White House, they would do well to
take a chance, also.
This is why the bonus got as many
as 295 votes, including 231 contriDU
ted by pro-Roosevelt democrats.
You would think that with all those
votes, the bonus could be passed over
a veto. Never fear. The 295 ayes were
15 more than the two-thirds neces
sary to pass over a veto. But after Mr.
Roosevelt vetoes the bill fifty or more
of those democratic ayes will change
- to nays. The matter then will have
departed from the realm of fun.
Also the perfect position for a con
gressman is to be on both sides of a
question, not merely on one side on;y.
Leading
Another great bslp for the bonus
was contributed by the chief of staff
of Mr. Roosevelt's army, his floor lead
er. Mr. Byrns.
Mr. Byrns is not a Roman general.
He does not believe In falling on his
sword and killing himself because he
Is losing.
In fact one profane wag In the press
- gallery remarked that he could not tell
what side Byrns was on, after hearing
his speech. That was due to the fact
that Mr. Byrns was in a tight spot. He
voted for the bonus last time. His
heart was clearly with the revolters.
But this time he wm the leader and
he had to stand by the president. Al
so he wanted the soldiers in his dls
trlct not to mlsunderstanad him.
In the heat of the battle, when the
time came to rally to the presidential
flag and fight to the last drop of
blood for the president, he said, in
i part:
" "1 regret very much to find myself
in opposition to many of my good
friends ... I hold no criticism of any
member of the house for whatever
action he may take with reference to
this bill (applause) ... I may be
wrong and those of you who are in
" the great majority may be right . ,
SiijnMS
The democrats d!! not eren put
Into the record the announcement
that Mr. Rooeerelt would veto the
bonua. That wa done by Republican
Repreaentatlve Trendway.
Also Democratic Chairman Dough
ton declined to take charge ot the
time for the president's aide, as is
customary. That too, was handled by
a republican. (However, Doughton
voted with the president.)
The republicans were very happy to
be as annoying aa possible. It la not
so long alnce they were passing the
same bonus back up to a republican
president for a veto In the aame way
the democrat parsed this one.
KrMilM
It will probably all even up In the
end.
The house Is expected to stand by
the president on tne veterans econ
omics. Tiic senate went political on
that issue and revolted against the
prf.;d,nt.

Policy Under Which Govern

Firm In Refusal
NEW YORK, March 16. (AP)
Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, in a tel
egram to Secretary of War George
H. Dern today, reiterated his re
fusal to take part, "directly or in
directly," In the secretary's inves
tigation Into army aviation.
"I want to thank you for your
telegram and to assure you that I
deeply appreciate the honor of be
ing asked to serve on the commit
tee," Colonel Lindbergh's telegram
read., '
"I do not feel that I can take
part directly or Indirectly in the
operation by the military forces of
American business and commerce."
WASHINGTON, March 15. (AP)
A policy under which the govern
ment would transport airmail and
private companies would carry pas
sengers only was advocated today by
Brigadier General William Mitchell,
retired, former assistant chief C. the
army air corps.
Testifying to the senate postoffice
committee, Mitchell suggested the
private companies receive a subsidy,
as "aviation should be fostered by
the government."
Planes carrying mall exclusively
would be much faster than mall
passenger combination planes, he
said.
Mitchell told the senators he fa
vored the competitive bidding clauses
of the new administration airmail
bill, but thought a minimum pay
ment ought to be provided as well
as a maximum. - -

the Democratic leader, told the sen
ate today that fraud In connection

other Republicans that no fraud or
coluslon had been proved In the air

LOCAL BREWERY
Suit to cancel a contract, made last
October, and to secure the return of
capital stock, has been filed by Max
Ge Bauer and others, against the
Pllsener Brewery company of Oregon.
OeBauer Is the principal stockholder
of the Southern Oregon Brewery com
pany of this city.
A restraining order forbidding the
Pllsener Brewing company, from dis
posing or transferring any of the
Southern Oregon Brewing company
stock now in it possession, was
signed by Circuit Judge H. D. Norton.
The order Is returnable March 36.
The complaint sets forth that the
Pllsener company last October en
tered into an agreement with the
local brewery, one of the conditions
being the purchase of 576 shares of
stock for $57,600. It Is now affirmed
that the Pllsener company Is insol
vent, and unable to meet the terms
of the agreement, or making pay
ments. It is alleged the procuring of
an Oregon state brewers license has
not been made. The complaint cites
that a federal bankruptcy proceeding
also pends.
The complaint charges that by rea
son of the alleged "fraud and misrep
resentation, the Southern Oregon
Brewery company has been damaged
in the sum of $15,000 and that it has
suffered "humiliation, and loss of
business prestige" by reason of the
inability of the Pllsener company to
comply with the contract.
"The Southern Oregon Brewing
company la a going concern, and able
to conduct its own business," the
complaint further recites. The suit
Is filed, "to protect its interests and
assets."

Advocates ''Not Entirely Dis
interested Says Secre
taryCountry Recovering
Without Radical Change
WASHINGTON, March 15. (AP) !
The treasury's investigation of specu
lative silver holdings was said today
by Secretary Morgenthau to have
shown that some advocates of higher
silver prices "were not entirely dis
interested."
Morgenthau made this statement
to newspaper men just after discuss
ing the silver question with Chairman
Somers of the house coinage commit
tee and other committee members.
Morgenthau said he opposed fur
ther change In the government sliver
policy at this time.
Interest Uncovered
"What was the purpose of the in
vestigation into holdings, of specula
tive silver to find whether silver ad
vocates were personally interested?"
the secretary was asked at his press
conference.
"Yes," Morgenthau said. "We
found some were not entirely disin
terested." Morgenthau declined to discuss the
Investigation further or to mention
any names. He said the report might
never be made public.
"The United States is doing better
than any other country on wholesale
commodity prices," Morgenthau said.
I told the congressmen we are
constantly studying silver. I feel
that if the world would ratify the
London agreement it would go a long
way toward taking care of the surplus
silver problem in the next four years.
Mind Open on Stiver
"I have an open mind on silver.
But it seems tae administration has
found a . combination of circum
stances which is pulling this country
out of the depression.
"As long as this combination works
why change it. If there were a radical
nose dive, then we would get busy.
But as long as things go along aa they
are, why, sit tight. That's the way
I feel."
Morgenthau said he still had to be
"shown" silver alone was the cure for
economic troubles.
In i expressing disapproval of a
change in the present silver coinage
policy, Morgenthau pointed out legis
lation was not needed because the
president has tremendous power al
ready over the metal.

CHEERIiPROFIT
Block of Second Grade Fancy
D'Anjous Sold by Rosen
bergs for $2.95 Box On
Ship Portland for Europe
Rosenberg Brothers, of the Bear
Creek orchards, announced today
that a block of second grade fancy
D'AnJou pears had been sold by
them for 92.05 per box on board ship
at Portland for European export.
The price, according to Harry H.
Rosenberg, will net the grower be
tween (1.85 and $1-90 per box.
"This la a most heartening sign
for the future of the pear Industry
and the growers," said Mr. Rosen
berg. "It la an exceptional and a
remarkable price, which has not until
recently been received In the New
York market. , This represent an
increase of over 100 per cent on the
prloa received last fall.
Favorable Prospects
"The exporters handling the D'An
jous," continued Mr. Rosenberg,
"have informed me that the pros
pects for Rogue river pears In 1934
are highly favorable."
Rosenberg also stated he looked for
good prices and sales and an early
f. o. b. market tho coming season.
"I look for a strong market on
Winter Nells, the next variety to be
sold, due tothe fact that most of the
D'Anjous have been sold and that
but about 100 cars of Winter Nells
remain unsold In the northwest. The
Rogue river pear is in demand In
the European markets and has en
joyed a rising price because they
were of excellent quality and pack.
Dealers have made money, the pub
lic wants them, and so the demand
and price rises.
Cheer for Grower
Rosenberg, conservative -orchardist,
is frankly enthusiastic over the pear
price outlook for this section and
feels that all growers should be
cheered by present conditions and
prospects, When he returned from
his annual New York trip last win
ter he predicted happier days ahead
for the pearmen.
Fruit shipments from this city
the past week over the Southern Pa
cific totaled 45 oars 44 can of
D'Anjous and one of Winter Nells.
Shipments for the season to data
total 1933 cars of pears and 133 cars
of apples.
