THE PITTSBURG ' DISPATCH, THUKSDAY, - DECEMBER 1, 1892.
GROWTH OF PENSIONS.
Commissioner Haam's Report of the
Wort of the Past Year.
ABOUT 200,000 MORE ON THE ROLLS
Thin Thire Were at the Same Period of the
Last Fiscal Tear.
LOWER dOST OP THE CERTIFICATES
W-lSHIHGTOir, Xot. SO. The annual re
port of Oreen B. Itaum, Commissioner of
Pensions, made public to-day, shows that
there were on the pension rolls Jane 30,
1892, 876,068 pensioners, an increase during
the year of 199,908. There were added to
the rolls during the year 222,937 new
pensioners, and 2,477 pensioners previously
dropped were restored to the pension lists.
During the year 25,306 persons were
dropped from the rolls.
The total amount expended for pensions
during the year was 139,035,612. For the
present fiscal year 144,956.000 is appro
priated, and taking the cost of the pensions
allowed during the first four months of this
fiscal year as a basis, the Commissioner esti
mates that a deficiency appropriation of
10,058.621 will be necessary to supplement
, An estimate oi $165,000,000 is submitte d
for the next fiscal year, but Commissioner
pensions shall be made during the fiscal1
year to oome as during the fiscal year ended
June 30 last, the amount will not be large
enough. He says, however, that it is dii
ficult to forecast pension payments so far
in advance, and that, as Congress will be
in session, no embarrassment will arise if
his successor, in the light of actual cost of
the work for the next six months of the
fiscal year, finds that lurther appropriation
will be needed.
Under the Dependent Disability Act.
Under the dependent disability pension
act 920,957 claims have been filed, of which
(03,859 have been allowed. The pension
payments under the law up to September
30, 1892. amounted to $756,494,443. The
Commissioner heartily commends this dis
' ability act. He admits that since the
passage ot that law there has been a great
deal of unfavorable comment upon the
pension system in general, and that it had
been said that the country is in danger of
being bankrupted by extravagant and un
deserving pension "legislation. But, he
Jl casual consideration of the great change
In the mode or the lives of these men, and
the conditions to which military Hie In time
of war subjected tfcein must suggest that
the strain upon the life powers of the sol
dier was so great as to make permanent In
roads upon the vital lorces nhicli would
necessarily result in tlie development ot a
multitude of ailments and disabilities be
yond the reach of medicine. It Is this class
oi citizens nlio now constitute tlie great
body of those who are on the pension rolls;
good health and the ability to perform labor
were their capital, and when tlieae were
gone they were in a great measure deprived
of their means or support. A very large
proportion of the men who carried tue mus
ket have Deen unable to keep up with their
neighbors who remained at home in the
great struggle of life, and the claims of these
persons or assistance from tlie Government
rest upon the broadest loundatlon ot jus
tice. Hard Work on Original Claims.
The Commissioner says that the policy of
the office for three years has been to use'the
larger part of the official force upon origi
nal claims, believing it just and proper that
those who have never received a pension
should have their cases considered in ad
vance of those persons seeking an increase
During the past fiscal year 234,047 certifi
cates were issued in original cases and 79,
781 in increase claims. Commissioner
TUum is of the opinion that if this poiicv
be pursued until the close of the fiscal year
1894, the adjudication oi original claims
will be substantially completed, and that
at the close of 1894 the highest number of
pensioners ever to be on the rolls will have
been nlaced there.
There are 449,876 original claims pending,
of which number 109,000 are apparently
complete. It is important both for claim
ants and the Government to dispose of the
original cases as soon as possible, as first
payments date from the filing of declara
tions, and are at the average rate of $11 a
month. As a rule the claimants are far in
terior to their neighbors in physical stam
ina and ability to perform manual labor for
a living, and are greatly in need of the
Attention is called to the necessity of
claimants preparing their cases properly in
order to expedite the work of the bureau.
The First Payments for the Tear.
During the year first payments were
made in 306,463 cases, requiring an expendi
ture of $45,144,167. including 230,232 orig
inal claims, amounting to $37,881,283. The
average value of original payments was
$164 55 and of original payments under the
disability act $127 19. The aggregate an
nual value of the 876,068 pensions on the
rolls June 30, 1892, was $116,879,887. At
the close of the fiscal year there was a bal
ance on hand from the appropriation for
pensions of $2,289,714 and a deficiency in
the appropriation for payment ot fees and
expenses of examining surgeons of $305,000.
The number of claims of all kinds pend
ing October 12, 1892, was 788,061, of which
353,434 were filed under the disability act.
The revolutionary and 1812 war rolls are
rapidly dwindling. Only 20 widows and
two daughters of Revolutionary veterans
are on the former roll. The survivors of
the war 1812 on the rolls now number only
165 against 264 a year before.
Mr. Baum closes with a comparative
statement of the work done under the Cleve
land and Harrison administrations. He
The total number of original certificates
Issued from March 4. 1889, to October 31, 1892,
was 520,5t5, and the total number of pension
certificates of all classes issued during said
period was 835,048, while durini: the period
trom March 4, 18S5, to October 31, 18:3, the
number of original certificates issued was
185,763. and the total number or certificates
issued during that period was 402,335, being
an excess of original certificates issued dnr.
Inethe period of your administration of
JM,7V6, ana an aggregate excess oi ail Classes
of certificates oi 432,563.
The average cost to the Government of
each certificate granted during the Cleve
land administration, the Commissioner
says, was $21 35, and during the present ad
ministration at $10 41, and he adds: "The
work of, the office was very far in arrears
when this administration took charge of the
Bureau of Pensions, while to-day the busi
ness ii a nearly current as it can be made."

A Little Girl Leaves Her New Home and
Cannot Again Find It.
Annie Love, an 11-year-old girl, is at the
Eleventh ward police station. Her parents
moved to this city from Braddock Tuesday.
Yesterday the little girl started to the East
End to visit hej aunt, Mrs. John Tucker.
Losing her way she wandered about the
city all day until taken to the police station
She does not know what part of the city
her parents live in and she does not know
on what street her aunt resides in the East
End. She will be kept at the station until
ASK TOTJB NEIGHBOR
Why her rooms are tenanted, and the
answer will be: "I advertise my rooms in

On the line of the "West End Car Com
pany electric motors have superseded the
primitive horse car. Everything is in

In operation on Monday. In the spring
branches and extensions will be made. One
of these will run to Ingram, Grafton, Mans
field and Shalersville, and another down to
Sheridan. In another year the company
expects to have 15 miles of road in opera

Go to Allegheny When They Want the
Newest and Best Things inAVay of Music
or Musical Instruments?
It is a fact that of more than one thousand
of those beautiful Everett pianos sold by
Alex. Boss, of Allegheny, fully one-half are
on the Pittsburg side of the river. The rea
son Is apparent to any Intelligent pur chaser
who will visit the warerooms. at Mi lederal
street. Mr. Hoss Is the first and only dealer
In Pennsylvania who has established an
absolutely one-price system In the piano
business. This price is on a cash basis, yet
you can be accommodated In the matter of
easy payments. In fact, easier payments,
than at any other house In the State, lou
can choose from a variety of makers or
pianos and organs ranging In price from 525
up to $1,500, and rely upon getting full value.
This is not only true of pianos and organs,
but of everything in the line of music or
mnsioal instruments. The stock of guitars,
mandolins, violins, banjo, etc., cannot be
equaled iu quality and price.
