Wholly irrespective of the bonus is- sue itself, Secretary Mlellon has per- formed a public service in dispelling a popular illusion about the manner of payinpi it. Many people seem to have the idea that all that is necessary is to use the principal of our foreign loans and that will end it. They do not seem to realize, as Mr. Mellon reminds them, that the interest and principal of the loans we advanced to the associate powers during the war are needed to pay the interest and principal of our Liberty loans, which were raised largely to lend these bil- lions to our allies. If the interest and principal on our foreign loans is assigned to pay a bonus, that will leave us under compulsion to find new means of paying the interest and prin- cipal of our Liberty issues.
