AS TO PENSION APPEALS.
ASSISTANT SFi ni'TAHV t ssFV ISS1LS HIS LAST
The annual report of Gen Cyrus Hussey,
the assistant sei retnty of the interior, has
been received by Secretary Noble. It deals
xclusively with the work of the board of
pension appsals, of which the assistant secre
tary has direct charge, and with the pur
chase of Indian supplies at the government
warehouse in New York. The report shows
that on July 1, IM'l, there was 5,0:10 appeal-
cd'pension cases on Hie with the board, and
that this number on June 30, 18112, had bent)
reduced to 4,340.
There were 4. 2 V appeals filed during the
year, of the 4,039 cases at ted upon during
the year the decision of the commistioner
was sustained In 3,81.1. Action was reversed
in 404 cases, 2I1 were dismissed and 4IKI
ctocs were reconsidered by Iho commissioner
He recommends that congress be request
ed to enact a law that shall expressly author-
Ixe the department lo treat all improper, II
legal and excessive payments of pension,
whe:her caused by fraud or by mistake, as
prepayments, to be charged against the cur
rent pension, with a view to readjusting or
equalizing current pension payments w ithin
the discretion of the secretary.
In concluding his report (General Iliisse
says: "I am graiitied to he able to say that
in compliance with the provision of the
various (tension laws, on June 30. 18!)?,
there were borne on the pension rolls the
names of 8.Hi.l)87 iensioners, 170,028 more
pensioners than were curried on the same
lolls at the end of the preceding fiscal year
and 4.17,0 V) more than were on the roll
June 30, 1887."
General Hussy calls attention In the fact
that the appropriation bill for the Indian
service is usually passed so late in the year
that it seems iniossible to let contracts for
supplies in time for delivery before winter
lets in, ana mis, especially as to uiiinKets
and winter clothing, bus caused much suf
fering. He recommends that the appro
priation for these supplies be made on
