Washington, July 7. Tbe qtieHtion
of special pension legislation is reriv
inti consi'lerable attention from Uon
gra at this session. Up to tbe prig
ent time piec ial penmon acta have
became laws, and ninety have been
vetoed. These pennon bills are vetoed
for vaiioue reasons, tbe la'ger number
perhaps failing to receive executive
approval because the disability of the
pensioner was not occasioned by mili
tary service. The longest memge re
lates to tbe case of Francis Deming,
who, nineteen years after the war,
was stricken down with blindness,
and traced bisalllicUon to rheumatism
contracted during tbe war. The PreH
ident shows that tbe disease was not
consequent upon military duty, and
"None of ns are entitled to credit for
extreme tsndernees and coDHidcration
toward those who fought their coun
try's battles; these are sentiments
common to all good cit'r.oDS; they
lead to the mont bonevoiout care on
the part of the government and deeds
of charity and ineicy in private life.
Tlio blatant and noiey splf awwition of

One of the beet speeches oa this
subject, delivered this session, wai
that made by Congressman iilimchnrd,
of Louisiana. As it priwentB a true
statement of facts, and the atlltude of
the (South, on the pension question we
reprodnco Its salient features here:
Mr. lllanchard iuld: Mr. Chairman,
as a Southern man and representing
an ex-Conltfdoiato conetitueniy upon
this floor, I have stood here lor t he
last five or six years, along with num
bers of ltopreaentatlves from tbe
' lib, and none of us haver yet ruined
i'tion to the passage of thess
cial peusion acts at these Friday
rot sessions. Hnxuking for myself,
1 voicing, 1 believe, the sentiment
i the SoutUeru people, 1 assert that
more Is no captious objection in the
South to tho granting ol pensions to
Hiildiers who fought on the side ol the
Union, when proper cases are present
ed .to this House. Sir, the members
on both sides of this chamber will, I
have no doubt, bear cheerful witness
to tt e fact that Southern Uepresenta
Uvea have, without cavil or ungener
ous criticism, given their votes, and
given them willingly, fur large appro-
? rlat.lons to pension tho ex-soldiers ol
he Federal army who wero disabled
by wounds or sicknexs in the line ol
duty and the widows end heirs of
those killed in the war. Am), sir, it
comes now with very bad grace
from the gentleman from Penn
sylvania (Mr. lUyne), in the discis
sion which has been had on this
bill here tonight, to draw tho sectional
lino. The gentleman stood in his
place and asked, with great vehemence
and fores ol manner, "Who paid these
pens:ons?" And then ho proceaded
to answer tbe question himself. "They
are paid," said he, "by the great, rich
.North." Does not the Southern soc.
tion of this country, I would ask, pay
a portion ol the taxes levied to meet
tLess pensions? Out of their opu
lence, 1 grant yon, the "great, neb
North" pays the most ol thess taxes;
but,sir,out ol their poverty the South
ern people pay a huge patt ol them.
The revenues ol the government, from
all soirees, aguregate in round num
bers from thiee hundred and fifty to
four hundred ruillii n dollars annually.
And does the gentleman from Penn
sylvania contend that all of the taxes
- which prod lies this enormous sum are
paid by "the great, rich North?" la
making such a statement, Mr. Chair
man, be drew the sectional line; and
this 1 deprecate, whether it be in a
debato on a pemioa can or in tho
discussion on say other proposition
which may come bnfore tuis llonss.
This government of curs cannot be
reproached by anybody within
its ownllmitiorout ol them with 1111b
cia'ity as respicts voiing pensions to
its soldiers. Thespsctacle is presented
to the world of 18,iK'0,000 per annum
being voted by tbe Congress ol the
United States t) pay pensions ti the
ex-soldiers ol the Republic, the r wid
ows and heirs. Now, ol this sum ol
$85 000,000 raircd yearly lor this pur
pose, how uiurh does the South pnv,
and pay it out of ils poverty? Sir, I
maks the ssserlion and challenge con
trad'cLion, that of thin $S5,(100,(JOO the
Houthern fed 'on of this Union pays
from $25,000,100 to $:t0,000,0OO. Lot
his words be known of all men. "Who
payj these taxes?" be dec'aims with
energy; snd in the next breath de
clare., ' Thev are paid by tho great,
rich North." Now, Mr. Chairman,
since the gentleman has precipitated
that issue, I am at liberty to say, not
on.lv doei the SoutU pay $J5,O0O,000 of
tbt fS5,0iM,000 that are voted for pen
sions yearly, but almost every dollar ol
the vast sum tutu paid by fie people
of the South tindsjuiibursemeot in;the
-North to tbe soldiers who live there.
Kotfl in flOO of it returns for dis
bursement in tbe South. So that
when our friends in the North, when
.the gentlemen on the other side twit
at as paying Done of these taxes, I an
swer we do pay our proportion
cf them, and not fl in $100 of
what we pay ever comes back for dis
bursement in our suction ol a common
country. There is disbursed in the
North not only all tbe vest turns paid
. by tbe South for pension taxes, bnt
- also all t bat tbe Northern people them
e Ives pay for this purpose; so that
the North not only gets back all that
.-she pays out for pensions, bat a'so all
or nearly all tbat the South is railed
npon to pay. It is a constant drain,
therefore, on one section of the coun
try, to the advantage, the building up,
the enrichment ot the other section.
And yet in the face ol thess facts the
gentleman from Pennsylvsnia bas tbe
temerity to throw in the teeth of
Southern men on this floor tbat all of
these ta xph are paid by "(he (.'real rich
North." Mr. Chairman, as for the as
sault made upon the President ol the
I n ted Slates by the gentleman froii.
Pennsylvania, it needs nothing at the
bands of myself or any other member
in the way cf answer. Tbe President
can stand such attacks made upon
him by the gentleman from Pennsyl
vania or by any other gentleman on
that side of the House who thinks
proper to indulge in that kind (of de
bate. Tbe President is intolligantly,
firmly and patriotically discharging his
duties as Executive ol this nation ac
cording to his best understanding of
those dutio", and bis enderstanding of
them, I submit to the gentleman from
Pennsylvania, tbe country is far more
disposed to adopt and concur in than
that which tbe gentleman's own judg
ment might sugg-st for bis approval.
Because the President bas returned to
the Senate and House a number of
special pension acta without bis ap
proval, tbe gentleman from Pennsyl
vania readsliim a lecture as to bis
duties under the constitution. Mr.
Chairman, the Prenident is required
by tbe constitution to examine and
investigitte every bill which pistes tho
two houses of Congress and goes to
him fcr his s'goature, and it is his
duty under the coos itution and tinui r
his oath ol ofllco when he believes
that a bill has haen pawned which is
unwise or without merit, to append
his veto to it. Is there not cnueo for
cloee scrutiny on the part of the Presi
dent? Why, eir, the spectacle has
been presented at this stwiun in tbe
other house ( f Congress of a number
of pension bills hting parsed witliont
any poition of them being road ex
cept tbe titles. Mr. Chairman, I be
lieve the country is prepared to ap
plaud tho action of tho Executive
when be points out that mistakes
havo been mado in passing certain
pension billn and vetoes them. Not
one of the bills he has vetoed should
ever have passed Congress. Tbe
reasons he lies given In his veto mes
sages why they should not become
laws are conclusive.
Mr. Iltyne Will the gentleman per
mit a question?
Mr. Meneburd Well, ask it.
Mr. Kayne 1 want to say to ray
friend from Louisiana that if he cannot
appreciate the condition of the sick or
wounded soldiers who are in indigent
circumstances, wo at the North can.
Ho cannot, of course, because he does
not have them at the South.
Mr. B'aocbar.l That is not a ques
tion, but state ment. We can appre
ciate their condiiion; we do appro
ciato It. Our action on this tlior lies
shown that wo appreciate it. For the
lust seven or eight years these Rpeclal
Friday nifiht pension sessions have
beon going on, and all this time, even
when a major ty ol tho members on
this side ol the House were and ae
from the South, no voice has been
ra sed t3 stoo this legislation ; and this
notwithstanding the I net that at these
pension night sessions bnt a handful
of the people's representatives
are ever present, and the call
for a quorum at nny one
of them would have broken
It up. It is a fact that but few mem
bers attsud.these night hhsIoiis, from
twenty-five to forty out ol 325 1s tho
rule. Many of in from tbe South
have long thought it Is bad policy, a
vicious practice, which permits so few
of the accredited representatives ol
the people to engage in tho wholesale
paserga ol bills taking money from
the '1 reasnry, addiug to tbe pecuniary
obligations of the government; but
out of the delicacy of our position as
representatives ol t x-Uonfedorato con
at'tuoncioj, we havo retrained Irom
attempts at checking it. We did not
wish our motives impugned or our
purposes misrepresented. Applauo,

To the Gditora of tha Appeal :
Memi'iiih, Tknn., July 9. I have no
ticed several communications from dif
ferent parts of M'siiesippi in regard to
the action of tbe Board of Truetoesof
thi University of Oxford insuninurily
dismissing five members of the facul
ty, without evon the sembluuce of
Itibtice, and especially S3 in regard to
)r. A. J. tjuinche. This is certainly
very nnloituiute for all concerned,
and tho sooner tho board rescinds its
action at,d retires the well tried edu
cators the better It will he for the unl
ver ity. I noticud, in onecf tho many
csmmiinitations nu the subject, the
writer speaks of tho trying t'me tbo
noble l)r Quinche passed tbr.iugh in
bis efforts to Bave tho univerjity
proprty during tbe war. What be
says 1 know to be truo.as I was in Ox
ford several time, during the war, and
at one time, when severely wounded,
was foitunate enough to fall into the
bandsof ihisnobleChiistian gentleman
and at bis house received tbe kindest
treatment at the bands of bis lovely
wife acd hr many friends. Those
wore trying times, and as Dr. Qulncbe
accepted too tin t of custodian of the
properly at the earnest and repeated
requests of those most interested in its
preservation, right nobly did ha per
form that duty and many t'mes at the
risk of his life and tha destruction of
his own little property, and for this
reason, if for no other, the people of
Missirslppl should honor him with a
position in this very university bo
saved as long as be consents to fill ono,
for no soldier, be be private or general,
performed a grander duty to tbe State.
But aside from this, he Is one of the
best educators iotas country; he is
one ot the purest Uimstlan gentlemen
that walks this earth, and bis daily
example to any body of students is ot
untold value. Having been a temper
ate man in all things during bis life,
nd being Btill under the age of 00
years, he Ib just in bis prime and capa
ble of rendering tho most efficient
service. And looking at it this way I
am at a loss to know why he has boon
so unjustly dealt with. If there
are charges against nny of the others,
surely be xhould not sutler far
another's fault. I am more inclined
to think it was an oversight, and the
mistake will be rectified when tho
board inoets again. All he holds most
dear Is centered around the campus,
and it would be a bitter rellection on
the gratitude of the peop o of Missis
sippi to fail to have him reinstated.
