The American Legion News: Local, State, National Stale County Chairmen Predict Overwhelming Victory for the Bonus Referendum To-morrow Bronx Plan for Memo? rial Trees Will Be Pm Through Despite the Committee Opposition Members of the American Legion arc awaiting with interest the outcome of to-morrow's balloting on the question whether veterans of the great war Bhi 11 be given a bonus by New York Sfc Le. opposition to the bonus within ti ranks of the Legion is nlrrost neg ligibie. It conservativo to say that 80 per cent of the veterans believe they should be rewarded in some tangible for ir service, but what the at of people may be is not iwcver, Hugh W. Robertson, acting state treasurer of the Legion, an-! nounced yesterday from headquarters that county chairmen throughout the' state had predicted an overwhelming voto in favor of Proposition No. 1, which provides for the state bonus.

This bonus will be $10 a month for! each month of service up to twenty-five I months and excludes all officers who wer? disciiargcd with a rank higher than captain in the army, or lieutenant, nior errado, in the navy. Nearly post of the American Legion in Now York State has indorsed the bonus and jthere has been little di among legionnaires. George Brokaw Compton, formerly New York County chairman, issued a statement Saturday, urging the defeat of the bonus, in which he said he re si riled as county chairman last April i. protest against the bonus demand adopted nationally. The question rests now with the vot? ers, and Legion leaders yesterday, ex? pressed confidence that the people of New York would not fail to recognize their obligations to their fighting men.

Bronx Memorial Assured Despite opposition County Chairman William F. Deegan of the Bronx has so organized his committee in the plans for a suitable memorial for men the Bronx who made the supreme sacrifice that its success is boydrid a doubt. Armistice Day the Legionnaires of the Bronx will assemble and dedi? cate a memorial as everlasting as Na? ture itse when they place upon trees; along the Grand Concourse bronze plaques Bearing the names of the Bronx heroes. This entire thoroughfare therefore, will be a memorial io the borough's brave of them. For a time the success of the venture was threat'nod.

A citizens' committee, of which Ernest L. Hammer was chuir mar, raised a fund of $14,500 for a memorial, but when the American Le? gion's kesman asked for a portion of the fui i to pay for the Grand Co i course project, it was refused. On Fri? day a meeting was held in Evan It Id High School to i hi situ ition, and it was decided, becau of trie stanch a a of citi? zens attending, to proceed without the help of the fund custodians. Nono of the citizens of the Bronx, however, is to be asked to contribute to the expenses of the undertaking, which will be about $7,000. The Legionnaires and other service men of the borough will ftubscribe and it will be their me? their own tribute to their comrades.

Reign of Terror in Domingo Charged YY To Administration i Former Minister Knowles.

Declares Washington Ha? Scrapped MonroeDoetrine in Invasion of Republic In an address to the Harding Demo? cratic League, in the Knickerbocker Hotel building, Saturday night, Horace G. Knowles. former United States Minister to Santo Domingo, declared that the Wilson Administration, in a most brutal had exterminated the last vestige of self-government in Santo Domingo and was ruling its peo? ple by armed military force. Mr. Knowles said that Wilson pre? tends that Article of the league covenant will guarantee territorial in? tegrity and poli independence of all member nations of league, but in spite of this highly idealistic preach? ment, Santo Domingo's territorial in? tegrity and politicai independence had been completely destroyed by the Amer? ican forces of occupation, acting under the direct orders of President Wilson and his Secretary of the Navy.

Mr. Knowles charged that, numerous atrocities murders have been com? mitted in this subjugated country by the American marines, and he told of the forcible expulsion by the Ameri? can admiral of the constitutionally choren President of the Dominican Re? public; the dissolution of the Domi? nical the unseating o1' every of the civil government of the country. The speaker charged that the estab? lishment of martial law and a censor? ship imposed apon the Dominicans was no less severe and had greater penai ties and punishment than the Germans inflicted upon the Belgians. Mr. Km.wies said that a reign of ter? ror had exit-led in Santo Domingo for the last four years and that the in? vasion of the country by Wilson's or? ders had been unwarranted.

He charged that the Wilson Administration actu? ally has scrapped the Monroe Doctrine and is making America guilty of the wrongs that the Monroe Doctrine aims to check.

Miserable opportunist, he is incapable of under? standing the depth of a devotion to an ideal: comfortable imperialist, he has never felt the intensity of a people's yearning desire for the liberty they have lost; contemptible demagogue, he has never known a democracy such as Ireland's, where the people always find a leader when the occasion demands."
