By MARK SUIAiVAX. Washington, D. C., March 17__ Any reporter with a professional in- terest in political rows must find himself seriously inconvenienced when potential contestants are sep- arated as faras the .distnce'between Washington and -Florida. We will all be happier when President Harding gets back from Florida and all parties to the row are in one ring and within the focus of a sin- gle pair of eyes. "Inspired Dispatches." It is difficult to make out the mo- tive of the dispatches which have been coming from the president's entourage and which are published in Washington in the newspaper which is owned by Harfling's Flori- ua host, but if it is difficult to de- termine the motive in Florida there need be no doubt about the result n Washington. The Republican leaders who are alluded to in these Dispatches are furious and the end OL the situation, which has been de- veloping for the past 10 days or more, is now pretty clearly in sight First the dispatches "said the president was tired of Republican congress comiug to the White House for leadership and then disregarding it. Then they said that Harding would veto the present bonus hill if the Republi- can leaders forced it "thru Final- ly, the dispatches said that Speak- er Gillett, of the house, who is the president in Florida, would refuse to recognize the Republican leaders when they try to push' the bonus bill thru, as has been their plan, under a parliamentary pro- cedure limiting debate to 40 min- That -would 'be an estraor- oinary thing lor the speaker to do under any and it alone would be enough to precipi- tate- row; even if the row'were not sufficiently There is one angle to this rep'orted intention of Speaker Gillett which you wonder just what Hard- Jng'B motive can be and what broad course of action he may have in mind for the future. If Gillett re- cedes from his reported position and lets the Republican house lead- ers have their way, the bonus bill go thru the house without any more fireworks than can be ie't loose in 40 minutes. But if Gillett should really attempt repression there would be quite a different de- velopment. May Be n Merry Time. Some other way will be found to get the hill on the floor, there need .be no doubt of that. But whatever other form of parliamentary pro- cedure may be found, entail a debate not limited to 40 minutes but one that will go far, fast and furiously. In that deb ate if the Re- j publicans in congress, and the Dem- i ocrats as well, say half the things Mabout the administration which I they now sullenly declare they are going to say, there will be a very- merry, merry time indeed. One possible outcome of that sit- 1 nation might be a combination af CTRepublicans and Democrats to re- Vfitore the excess profits tax as a j means of providing the bonus mon- ley, or some other form of unantic- ipated and unwelcome amendment. I Still another development might be Ian amendment providing for a sales I tax to raise the bonus money and la square fight on the sales tax is- Isue. Conceivably that may be the I thing Harding and his friends are for. May .Make Clear Issue. A fight on the clear alternatives lof bonus plus sales tax against bon- liis minus sales tax would bring the Jissue exactly where Harding has al- Iway said he wanted it. If the bon- lus plus sales tax should be defeated after an open fight and a rollcall. the onus of defeating the bonus might then rest on the Democrats and those among the Republicans who refuse to favor it in that form. As a more future looking motive ror Harding's course it may be con- heivable that he would not be dis- pleased to see the present Republi- han majority in the house cut down bonsiderably in the November elec- tions. To any one of the 200 Re- Piublican representatives, each con- ffidering his individual case and at Ihis moment breaking his neck for l-e-election, this is a malevolently Impious and wickedly treasonable But. the ge'neral behind Ihe lines is occasionally called upon lo.consider the larger good at the ftxpense of some sacrifice among in the ranks. Republican Majority Vnwieldy. The present Republican majori- ty is so big as to be unwieldy and Unmanageable. A two-to-one ma- prity makes for looseness for chjsms and blocs. A narrower Jiajority would make for compact- less, teamwork and willing assent 'leadership. That may conr.eiv- bly be the thing that Harding is unwilling to see come about, i any event iherc may be some real slitics in town next week. -The bonus hill in its present brm isn't any nearer to ready mon- Min the soldiers' pockets ihati it .-cr was. The bill, in its .present hrm will never go on tho 'statute links. But if the bonus isn't any ore nearly in sight the in the. party is leaping swiftly joyfully over the horizon. 1522, by York Evening Post, Inc.)
