n.tnt for a vote Friday at 3 o'clock
on tlio mot ion to recormnit the sol
diers' bonus bill was reached by the
f.t:iate late today by unanimous ron-
The result of the vote, leaders o!
b..tli tactions agreed, was not in
douiit. Recommittal, as requested by
President Hardins. is deemed cer
tain. Senator l.odue. of .Massachusetts,
republican leader, secured the aiiree
inent at the cloe of another day's
assault by democratic senators. He
said the recotnniittal motion wa iu
the way of other important measures
such as the anti-beer and maternity
bills. In areciui: ' a vote, how
ever, democrats jrave notice that they
would not onlv oppose the re-publi-.
can motion, nut also wouiu eeu it
instruct the finance committee to re
port the bill back at an early date.
Senators Watson, of Ceor:iu. and
lletlin. of Alabama, led the demo
cratic attack today on the motion to
ncomniit. Senator Myers, democrat.
Montana, however advocated recom
mittal. The votinsi agreement involves
I.oldiim the bonus measure and the
recommittal motion before the senate
contii - .-ly until the roll call Fri
day, it was reached after the re
publican side uave up hope -'f se
en riii a vote either today or tomor
row. Private overtures for a vote to
morrow were rejected by democratic
senators, who msi-ted that ample
time should be jiv n for presenting.
th' opposition arguments to the
ays Interests Command
That President Hardini; had e?;-
feeib'.l Ins constitutional iinniations
iu asking the senate to postpone cui!
siderat ion of the bill was asserted b
SiMiator Watson. The republican
move, he said, was to send the hill
"to a chloroform committee preside!
over by a chloroform senator." That
the republicans proposed "putting th
bill to sleep forever" was asserted
a'so by Senator Hetiin.
Senator Hefiin chare'd that bi.
iiiouey interests com ribiited to d;'C
liin of a rt publican president and
congress, and now were saying, "de
liver the uoods." T;,e same interests,
lo said, were threatcninjr to cans'' a
panic if the bill should be passed,
lio contended that the treasury wa
ainplv able to bear the burden of the
Senator McCumber. republican, of
North lakota. who caused the bill to
be placed before tilt1 senate on he
half of the finance committee, today
conferred with President Hardins.
Legion to Continue Fight
Indianapolis, ind.. July 1". - The
American Legion will fight on for
adjusted compensation without any
change in the provisions of its pres
ent program following the message
of President Harding to the senate,
urging delayed action. John I. Fin
ery. Legion national commander, de
clared in a statement issued from
national headquarters here today.
"The sudden alarm, which appar
ently has swept over government of
tii;ils. lest -Through adju-ted com
pensation the I'uited States treasury
be so depleted as to mean national
calamity, will cause no recession of
our activity to bring about such
measures of civil re-es:tablishment
and material rend justment as we be
lieve to be for the best interest of
the country itself." Mr. Finery de
"Our claims for adjusted compen
sation were not made until by a
careful study the contentions of our
ex-service men were ascertained,
which beyond any doubt justify
every provision set forth in the ad
justed compensation bill" he said.
"I believe that Secretary Mellon
vastly overestimates the cost of such
provision. Precedent disproves his
prediction of financial collapse if the
proposed bill passes. Fngland and
her overseas dominions. Italy. France
and Belgium enacted national relief
legislation and found money thus ex
pended a potent factor iu stabli.ing
economic conditions generally thru
rehabilitation of individuals."
Mr. Fmery today wired Senator
Porter J. McCumber, who has led the
fight on the senate floor for the Le
gion measure, that recommitment of
the bill to the committee must not
be permitted. As the bill seemed
doomed to almost certain delay, Mr.
"The Legion earnestly requests
that members of congress do their
duty by those who served in armed
forces as they have done by those
who serveil iu industrial forces of
