Representative, MINNESOTA SBLECT LIST. q09 ]xemge Bank - - St. Paul 215 S. 6th St. - Minaeapoli HARDING AND BONUS President Harding in vetoing the bill to provide adjusted compensa- tion to the veterans of the world war has passed the buck with the result that the soldiers who served for the small sum of $1.00 a day on the front lines while thousands of men romained at home drawing fat salaries as railroad employes, muni- tion workers, and ship builders, have been disregarded. In his message to the House of Representatives the President said in part: "It is not to be denied that the nation has certain very binding obli- gations to those of its defenders who made real sacrifices in the World war and who left the armies injured, disabled or diseased so that they could not resume their places in the normal activities of life. These obligations are being gladly and generously met. Perhaps there are here and there in- efficiencies and injustices and some distressing instances of neglect, but they are all unintentional mid every energy is being directed to their earli- est possible correction. In meeting this obligation, there is no complaint about the heavy cost. In the current fiscal year we are expending $510,- 000,000 on hospitalization and care of sick and wounded, on compensation and vocational training for the dis- abled and for insurance. The figures do not include the more than $35,000,- 000 in process of expenditure on hos- pital construction." is being spent toward carry- ing for tle sick and disabled should have nothing whatever to do with the adjusted compensation ,measure in question and in mentioning the ex- penditures it appears that the Presi- dent was making excuses. The gov- ernment owes to the sick and disabled every red penny that it is spending toward their care and education. It owes it to itself as a nation all that it is spending to see that they are perly fitted for occupations suit- e to their handicap. What is be- ing spent and what is contemplated to be spent for the sick and disabled " is separate and apart from what is due and owing the men who served during the war for the sum of $30:00 per month. Nothing would have ever  been raised aout adjusted compensation, in our opinion, had it not been for the fact that thousands of men, able bodied, were exempted from military $ervice to renmin at home to run the mmroad, build ships, and do the hun- tired and one other jobs which car- lied with them salaries that made the soldier's pay fade into oblivion. Just because soldiers returned home with ble bodies should be no reason for the government refusing to ad- Just their pay. Had congress devoted one-tenth the time and one-half the expense to in- quiring into the records of hundreds of men who made millions off af crooked transactions as a result of the war and to their proseeution, that it has spent in "passing the buck" on the bonus legislation in all brobabili- ties the public would be much better More Miners Trapped "Forty-seven miners found dead in the mine at Jackson, Ciifornia, aads a headline in the dailies. But what does that matter. They were minemmon laborers---who were working for moderate wages. When the strike question is up little consid- Gration is ever given of the risk they take in following their occupation. All sentiment seems tO favor the op- erators. The best and surest way of lmttling wage disputes in the mining business would be to force the officers and directors of those companies to follow in the footsteps of tlir m- lalayees for a month or so. Their at titude might change. ,.-. [ICKENS HAVE COME HOME The railroad companies started tc Iboyeott the country newspapers some ago, and it will take the rail- mlds a long time to recover from what happened to them. Railroads :need advertising as much as any other business; just now they need ad- mortising of a favorable kind a little more than any other business, but they haven't any of it coming from country press. They have played the hog in their os with the newspapers as" they have in their relations with the pub- lie generally, and/they have piled up for hemse]ves so much ill will that tt will take them a generation or two .to emerge. Tide is plain language, but it is the aly kind of lanKaage that the aver- railroad official drawing $50,000 s ymr salary can understandDaw- a mt/neL :. @ WEDDINGS j KIDMAN-MURRAY The marriage of Miss Alice Mur- ray, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed.
