"It would be a source of. revenue,
certainly," the witness replied, "but I
am not prepared to say that it would
be a good source either for the producer

Coming to the year of 1872, Mr.

Replying to Mr. Livingstou, Mr.

REPORT ON PENSIONS.
Some P"int -if Merit Made by U
FiulaUELI'UIa, ept. 7. The greatest j
secrecy is being maintained in regard
to the report of the committee on pen-1

report, in part, cites the conditions
when in lSiH) congress passed the act
to provide relief for disabled veterans
and their widows and orphans, not con

disabled while in the service.
It is claimed that the original con

1803 by most unjust and arbitary rul
ings of the pension commissioner first
placing the burden of proof upon ap
plicants for pension that they were not
suffering Irom disabilities consequent
upon their own vicious habits, and in
the ruling that widows of veterans wlio
applied for pen-Jons were not eligible if
they had an income aggregating $S per
