Wamiinoton.Oct. 21.^ The report of the^ooiumittee which investigated the pension^office is made public. It covers a little^more than eighteen printed pages, and is^dated Sept. ^^,The report says tlmt
therewere no records in the pension office^showing s|^eci^lly the number of cases^which had been rented during the period^suggested in the assistant secretary's order,^and that until the period commencing Sep^^tember, 1WW, the rerated cases were all in^^cluded in the record among reissue* for all^purpstes. Commencing, however, with^S. pi. 1. 1KXS, and continuing through each^succeeding month, the certificate division^has noted on its record of all issues of cer^^tificates numbered lielow 171,01111. those^which had Wen reissued for the puns we of^corrections or changing the rate. On ex^^amination the board ascertained that the^issue of certificate No. 171,000 brought the^work down to shout Julv 1. Im\ the date^when the arrears act of March II, l^l, took^effect, mid it also appeared that a much^larger proportion of certificates issued prior^to that date had lieen rented tlian^of those issued subsequently. The repirt^therefore covers all cases numbering la low^10,1100 rerated during the mouths of WMh^tier. 1H.s.s, January. February, March, April,^May, .Mine and .liilv. lKHll,showing the num^^ber of cases rerated during the eight months^sp-rifled, and also showing that in about Kt^percent of the totnl minitsT of cams!^I rated the relating extends back to^the date of discharge, and the coin^I uient is made that the statement^' indicates there has b.. n a substantial^' increase in the number of casts rerated^| from month to month during this^period, which. the re|sirt says. is^! indicative of what is apparentIv^i the i -tnhlished pilicy of the bnre.iii. the N^| suit of which, if continued, will be to R nil^judicutc and re rati' a verv large |ieroeiit.age^of cases on the ail in it led files.
Therep li t continues: ^The mode of pro^cct dure in a majority of eases is about as^follows: '1 he pensioners, prompted by the^present Itla-ral policy of the bureau, in mak^^ing an application for an increase of pen^Mini, also in some applications request a^n-rating, giving no s|H'cific reasons there^^for, but stating generally thai they have^been rated MM low. and this uveal ion is con^^sidered on the application It hi increase^alone, and hi very many ens. s it is consul^^ n il and action taken without, so far as the^record shows, a request li. * IMJ been made^for such action on the part of^the pensioner. In the process of^adjudication the bo id of review^has adopted the followiiif I ^i in of indorse^^ment, which is generalh found MM the^briefs, ..s its action: ^UeratlMJ not ap^^proved unless manifest injustice has been^done m the former rating.^ After the ac^^tion is thus indorsed the case p isses to the^medical division, where the new lute is in^^dorsed on the face of the brief without, in^most eases, assigning any reason why the^former rating should be disturbed. The^theory or rule which the office claims to fol^^low in adjudicating caws for reratingis^that of 'manifest injustice' in the original^or former rat in';. I'm an ms|^ection of the^MMNBBMJlog exhibits will, we think, con^^vince you. as an examination of thepajs-rs^necessary in t he preparation of the same has^convinced us, that the theory or principle^above mentioned has not la i n followed as a^rule, though the action on the face of the^Brian by MM medical division, where the re^^sponsibility seems to have been placed, as^^signs, as a rule, no reason for re rating^that^is, does not set forth that manifest injustice^has been done, or a mistake or palpable^error committed in the former ratings. It^seems manifest, whatever the reason was^theoretically that practically, and ill fact,^the at ion in a large majority of cases was^the result of a mere difference of opinion^from that which governed the original or^former adjudication. It was an opinion of^to-day, oveiluriimg that of ten or twenty^years ago, on a weight of evidence and, in
many cases, on ev nit-I, which proc-
erlyConsidered and weighted would,^under the existing law, rules and^regulations be found insdcquMt^wen- the caws now properly open for adju^^dication on the weight of evidence.
Thecases which are analyzed and cited^in the rcpirt are, m all important particu^^lars, substantially of the same general^character as thus*' cited in Secretary Soldi 'a^letter to Commissioner Tanner, dated July^24 last, and published Sunday morning.
Then | continues: ^One thing seems
manifest,the rule that a palpable or mani^^fest error in the form of adjudication has^not been, as a matter of fact, the controlling^principle in a majority of the rerated caws,^lowever much it may be urged to the con^^trary, and adjudications in most cases have^] been bawd on mere differences of opinion,^and judgments have been made, as a rule,^without even this.' reasons for those differ^^ences of ^pinion upiienring.
Anumlier of cast s are limited, shown to^have been indorsed by either the commis^^sioner or Ins former secretary,(J. H. Spines,^as forty-eight hour caws. That is. they^are cases in which an order was made re^^quiring final adjudication within forty-^l eight hours from the issuance of the order.^! Tills, the repirt says, seems to have been
|until 1stI not only to Is' all order for filial
actionwithin forty-eight hours, but an or-^j der for final favorable action. The board^| is unable to state win re the practice of is-^, suing such orders originated, but it has.^I they say, an existence covering the Mltlie^1 period of investigation.
Inregard to the cases of the pension of^^fice employes, the reput savs that in ad-^j judical nm for renting, the rule, pal pa 1.1.
erroror manifest injustice in the former^' rating, seems to have's en utterly ignored,^and they wi re almost without exception re^adjusted upon mere opinion. Tin^| board in summarizing its conclusions says^substantially the same principles have been^followi d in general, so far as the applica^^tion of any principle or rule could Is- dis^^cerned, during the period of eight mouths,^beginning with December, Isms, covered bv^our investigation. The practice of n-rating^pensions in caws the pa|#rs in which do^not disclose an error in the original udjudi-^ca.inn, which is niaiiifrtt or palpable, thus^leaving for the real basis for re-rating a^mere opinion on the weight of the evidence,^as now viewed, and allowing that opinion to^annul and change for adjudication, a rating^based iipm the same evidence, is in viola^^tion of the spirit, if not the letter, of the^law, and even if thia were not bo,^is inconsistent with good practice and con
traryto well established rulesof evidence,^the practice of taking cases out of their^order and making them ^forty-eight hour^^cases is especially inisclucv ^us, in that it^is apt tube construed as equivalent to an^order to allow, and las-iiusc it may. for^want of sufficient time, previ nt the dwibar-^ate and proper consideration which they^would have. The decisions of the depart^^ment are uot always followed by the pen^^sion office, as thev should lie, m punts of^law and practice. The rule of practice fur^^nished by the decision should la' recognized^ind followed by the pension office so long^as it is not overruled or modified by^the authority which made it so^and s construction or interpretation^if law by the department should Is- accept^^ed by the pension office as binding, and that^as applicable not onlv to the case in which^it is made, but in all cases involving the^same legal quest ion. The Isiard makes a^numta-r of recommendations, with a view^to the correction of errors which have crept^into practice through the lax mi-thials which^are found to prevail in the pension office.
