Bat we cannot understand how
strong, patriotic young men—men in
good health and of aound minda—can
aak tha government to saddle upon the
Uxpeyera of the country a tremendous
harden in order to pay them a bonus
for having performed their duty as
citlaens of the United States. The
word "cannot" is used inadvisedly.

and for all the rest of ua.
We firmly believe that a very large
number of discharged aoldiers regard
the tactics now being employed by both
the great parties in Congress with dls- j
gust. We believe that they will con-
strue the political play now in progress
as a direct tosnlt—an attempt to bay
the soldier vote.

Since the extravagant buying thst is 1

the use of credit, it ndght lie thought j
there is something anomalous in the
action of the National Association of
