Waterloo Evening Courier And Waterloo Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - March 17, 1922, Waterloo, Iowa Th Ini of of the Courtar THREE CENTS nil with ISM PRESS AND WATERLOO REPORTER Saturday nun In west north Republican Congress Leaders Angered by Dispatches from MERRY TIME is CAPITAL Issue May Be Narrowed to Sales Tax Plan and Fight on House Floor By MARK Washington D C March Any reporter with a professional in- terest in political rows must find himself seriously inconvenienced when potential contestants are as faras the Washington and 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 gle pair of eyes Inspired Dispatches It is difficult to make out the 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 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- for the past 10 days or more is now pretty clearly in sight First the dispatches said the president was tired of Republican congress to the White House for leadership and then disregarding it Then they said that Harding would veto the present bonus hill if the can leaders forced it thru ly the dispatches said that 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 thru as has been their plan under a parliamentary limiting debate to 40 That be an thing lor the speaker to do under any and it alone would be enough to row even if the not sufficiently There is one angle to this intention of Speaker Gillett which you wonder just what 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 ers have their way the bonus go thru the house without any more fireworks than can be 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 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 i as well say half the things the administration which I they now sullenly declare they are going to say there will be a merry merry time indeed One possible outcome of that 1 nation might be a combination af and Democrats to re- the excess profits tax as a j means of providing the bonus ley or some other form of 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 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 liis minus sales tax would bring the exactly where Harding has Iway said he wanted it If the lus plus sales tax should be defeated after an open fight and a 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- that he would not be dis- pleased to see the present han majority in the house cut down in the November tions To any one of the 200 Re- representatives each con- his individual case and at moment breaking his neck for this is a malevolently Impious and wickedly treasonable But the behind lines is occasionally called upon the larger good at the of some sacrifice among in the ranks Republican Majority The present Republican ty is so big as to be unwieldy and Unmanageable A two-to-one prity makes for looseness for and blocs A narrower would make for less teamwork and willing assent leadership That may bly be the thing that Harding is unwilling to see come about i any event may be some real in town next week bonus hill in its present brm isn't any nearer to ready Min the soldiers pockets it was The 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 Former Resident of Adair Victim of Auto Smashup
