Judge Lochren Denies Charges
Made by Corporal Tanner.
DE. BELL NOT CENSURABLE
Would Not Keel Justified in Ileinox lug
Hi iii3! I'd leal lllflon, tiie Coiu
uiifvloiu'r 11oUi;m, Vhsms "Upon
Cn-i-s Affording to Merit and Their
Commissioner Lochren will give Cor
poral Tanner ample opport unity ti have
all tils charges against the Tension Olfice
duly considered." The Commissioner
will not inaiigunite an investigation im
uieili.ilelj. in the teilimcnl .sense of Hie
lei m, but will take under advisement w hut
the Corporal has said, and perhaps lrom
this, nn investigation will be unified. The
chances are, however, that Mich inquiry
will not be ordered, because at the iIoe
ofa long talk, with the Commissioner jester
clay lie lelt Tlie Times under the impres
sion thai lie assumed lie had eifcitually
disposed of tin Corporal', charges.
As to the i barges of inefficiency and
political Idas, urged against the mcdk.il
division by Corporal Tanner, Commis
sioner Loch ten said tli.it its present con
stitution was the .same practically as it
iiatl been under previous administrations,
ami under Air. Tanner when lie was Com
missioner. He, the Commissioner, had
made .some recommendations for a change
in the personnel of the division, and the
appointments were made lij the Secretary
of the Interior.
There are thirty eight members of the
medical division, of whom not more than
six have been replaced under the present
COKl'OHAL TAXNLIt'S CHAKGL.
It will be noted that Co i pom I Tinner
charged that although there hail been
no changes personally, there had been
a change of sentiment on the pail of Re
publicans who thought that they weie ear
ring out the poliej of the administration
by being hostile to thegiantiug of pensions.
Hefernng to the Knapp case quoted by
Mr Tanner, the Commissioner said th.it
tlie application was filed in 1S91, under
the act of June 27, 1890, alleging liver
complaint . dysp;j;si.i and general debility
In 18i3 the claimant filed an affidavit
that in June pievious, w lilie acting as lo
comotive engineer, lie had reteicd a sliod:
of paralysis A medical examination was
held in September, 180.1, and it showed
was Miffc ring from some spinal disease that
manifested itself in p.inihsis
Tor some reason the cae did not reach
the medical division until last June Tlie
application was then tejected by l)r Hell,
for the reason that it did not appear that
the applicant was disabled for the perform
auceof manual laborfrom any of the causes
alleged in his application Anjhow, the
ca.e was rejet ted.
"Under a l.iirly strict construction of tlie
law I)r Bell's action was technically cor
rect," Judg a'hren said, "because the
law provides that tlie pension shall com
upon proof thai the disability then existed "
HELL .NOT CKNSUUABLi:.
There was iiostatcment of paralysis in the
declaration, nor anj thing out of winch
paralysis might result The evidence
showed, on tlie other hand, that the paraly
feis commenced in June, 1SG.1
"A new declaration was then necessary,
but under a very liberal construction of
the law which I have adopted I regarded
the affidavit which he made in 1893 as a
supplementary declaration This affidavit
is cpiite informal, and does not contain a
great many of the necessary requirements
for o declaration, or that the paralysis was
not the ersult of vicious habits
"It is not surprising, therefore, that the
examiners here should decide that it could
not be regarded as a sufficient declara
tion I do not, therefore, think that Dr.
Bell is specially censurable for his action
at all "
As to Mr Tanner'schargetnat the Repub
licans in office were trying to discredit the
administration of the office, the Commis
"I should be sorry to believe that there
are any employes of the bureau who
would deliberately wrong the old sol
diers and do an injustice to them for a
puriwse of that kind 1 should be "very
slow to believe a charge of that sort
Tiie fact that a clerk would make a mis
take in relation to a case would not justify
me in believing that lie acted perversely
or intentionally All mankind are liable
to mistakes, about everything, and they
constantly occur in laige offices like this."
The Commissioner's attention was called
to the charge of long delays in the grant
ing of pensions in the interview with
Corporal Tanner, and winch the Commis
sioner had not yet seen.
WILL NOT REMOVE HELL.
These delays, he said, are usually the
fault of tlie attorneys or the parties who
are supposed to supply the evidence to
Uiis bureau, or to tlie applicant himself
who is unable to furnish the proof required.
Judge Lochren admitted that there was
a large lot of cases not yet settled, but, in
the main lie said, they are cases In which
the necessary evidence has not been sup
plied. Wherever the case is complete, he
said, tho pension is soon granted.
"What action will you take in regard
to the request of Corporal Tanner for the
removal of Dr. Bell?"
"I do not think 1 would be at all justi
fied in granting that request," said the
Commissioner. "Dr. Hell ih a Republican,
an old soldier, and a pensioner himself at
thirty dollars a month. He lias borne a
good reputation, and even Jf lie had madea
mistake 1 don't think I should cut his
head off for a mistake."
"And as to tlie other charge of Corporal
"I shall always be glad to correct any
thing wrong in this office that is brought
to my notice and I shall therefore con
sider "vMiatever iB brought to my atten
tion." It is evident that the specific case re
ferred to by Corp. Tanner has already
been investigated by tbe Commissioner
and bo has given judgment in favor of
Dr. Bell. As to the other charges ltis
equally evident that the Commissioner
will not admit them to be a reflection on
the conduct of the office, but as mere
errors which might occur in any large es
tablishment. It will, therefore, require
another charge of Corp. Tanner against
the breastworks to elicit any thing new from
tho entrenched officials of the Pension

A sixteen-year-old boy, who is a critahle
living skeleton, has been attracting the al
lnt ion of the lawyers and others about tlie
city hull for the past two or three days.
Tho lad hail been sitting about in a list

gering back and forth rrom the cheap
lodgiiig-hous"B v Inch line K street, when
some charitable person would hand him
enough change to pav for a cot.
Sanitary Olliccr Frank, at police head
quarters, heard of the boy and ins pitiable
condition and sent out messengers to
look for linn. They were successful, for
about 1 o'clock yeMerday afternoon the
emaciated wreck of humanity came tot
tTing into his orfice.
The lad said he was John Skivington and
his age sixteen years. Being asked where
his patents were he replied falteringly:
ALONE IN THE WORLD.
"They are both dead, sir"
"Where are you from?"

a pei mil -to Providence Hospital, and lie
was taken Uieie in a police ambulance.
His condition is thought to be due toa com

Young Skiwngton's history is a sad one

of the three card motile gang headed by
John Henry Murphy, O'Brien and Leary,

He was a remarkably bright boy then, a ml

fellow was stood upon the counter and
made to sing tyuL recite for drinks .
Sometimes a nnifiken lounger would com

called, to take a drink himself, and tlie
child was often taken out of the barroom

indebted to private roads, which are liable
to be closed to them at any time A school

Mr. 8. R. Floyd, or 2006 F street, is an
employe of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, and a gentleman of character. He
was for six year-, a sufferer from catarrh
of the head, stomach, and gall duct He
had severe pains over the eyes, and ex
tending up to Hie forehead. He could not
breathe through his nose, and there were
periods of distress and indigestion when he
would become depressed m mind. In time
he grew terribly constipated, aud for months
could not sleep. He consulted Dr. Walker,
and in eighteen days was discharged cured.
He has remained so since.
Although Dr. Walker's practice is large
and extensive, and steadily increasing,
and his time is in constant demand, lie lias
always firmly adhered to his system of
small fees; lie never makes a charge of
any kind for consultation, examination, or
advice. Tlusp'-ces the wonderful lienerit
of bis great skill withm the reach of all.
In addition to the large number of callers
he sees daily , he yet finds time to answer
personally the many letters he constantly
receives from out of town sufferers who
seek ins aid or advice. Dr. Walker makes
it an ironclad rule to only accept for treat
ment those cases he KNOWS lie can cure;
others are candidly told their condition
Young or middle-aged men suffering from
the ef reels of their own follies, vices or ex

who are conscious of any impediment or
disqualification, or those who feel their
youthful vigor and power declining,
