Iron-monger's Proposal Meets With
Almost Unanimous Disapproval
Taft Does Not Want Pension But
May Approve Plan for Future.
Congressman Henry Suggests That
They Be Sent to the Poor House If
They Can't Care for Themselves.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. Govcrn
cnt officials and other prominent
men hero today almost unanimously
disapproved of Andrew Carnegie's
plan to pension fnturo retiring
presidents or tho Uultcd States. It
was tho general opinion that the ac
ceptance of a pension would be be
neath tho dignity of cx-presldcnts.
President Taft, busy on his aios
sago to congress, was Inaccessible
today and his vlow could not bo ob
tained. Congressmen arc discussing
the possibility of congress providing
for former chief executives. Many
favor tho plan advanced by William
J. Dryan to scat them either In tho
house or senate.
Tuft to Decline Pension
President Tart docs not want a
Carneglo pension but ho would
not comment on tho pension plan
now because of his friendship for
Carnegie. Friends who have dis
cussed the matter with President
Taft say ho probably will endorse- the
plan but will decline the pension
himself, first, because ho may run
again and docs not wish to bo obli
gated and second .because bo saved
money during his term and besides
having property In Cincinnati is re
ported to havo saved $100,000 from
his salary as president.
Congressman Henry of Texas said:
Send Them to Poor House
"If It has como to a point whero
former presidents can't tako charge
of themselves wo ought to make
some provision for their admission
to soma charitable Institution."
Senator Porter J. McCumbcr of
North Dakota took an opposite view
of tho matter.
"Tho scheme strikes mo favor
ably," ho said. "Former presidents
should not bo dependent upon pri
vate charity. I'm advocating a "bill
giving them $10,000 annually as
past commanders-ln-chlct of the ar
my and navy."
