' WASHINGTON, Dec 1. The annual report
of Commissioner liaum, of the pension of
fice, was made public yesterday. It shows
that ou June 30, 1892. there were S76,0G8
pensioners on the rolls of the eighteen
agencies, an increase of 199,908 in the last
fiscal year. These pensioners were classi
fied as follow: Widows ard daughters of
revolutionary soldiers, 22; armv invalid
pensioners, SK),74S; army widows, minor
children, etc., 108,C."S; navy invalid pen
sioners, 5,04li; navy widows, minor children,
etc., 2,fi00; survivors of the war of 1S12, lfw;
widows of soldiers of the war of 1812,
6,(551; survivors of the Mexican war, 15,215;

in-iiMoners, ioo,in; army widows, minor
children, etc., 44,fiPG; navy invalid pension
ers, t),o.'.t; navy widows, minor children, etc.,
Cost of the Ust in 18112.
The total amount expended for pensions
during the fiscal year was Si;i9,n.T5.fil3. The
am.tiiil value of the pension roll of 67(5,1(50
peiisrouers on Juno 30,1891, was $9,2-17,200.
From this amount is deducted Sl.;79.224.
he average value of pensions of 21.(587 on
he roll June 30, 18-.il, and dr..mcd from the
roils during the fiscal year, leaving a 1;:1-
nnceof $f7,.V)7,975. To this amount, how
evrr, is added the sum of t4,S"3,242 due on
account of 8,574 persons on the rolls who
hail not been raid dunns the fiscal Tear
s'.l, and who were paid out of the fuuds of
he fiscal year 1S92. The total aniour t paid
on the above stated account was $92,451,218,

during the fiscal year S1C.45S.394. makknr

l.stitiiatrs Tor xt Year.
The amount due 20.4.'15 pensioners on the
rolls on June at, 1892, who were not paid
for want of time, but who will be paid out
of the funds appropriated for the fiscal
year 1893, is $2,82,2.'!4. The appropriation
for the fiscal year 1893 is $144,100,000. but
taking the cost of the allowances made
during the first four months of this fiscal
year as a basis for calculation the commis
sioner estimates that there will be a deficit
of $10,508,621. In making his estimate for
an appropriation of $165,0v0,000 for the fiscal
year 1893 General Kaura says there is much
difficulty in forecasting the probable cost
of this service for a period so far in ad
vance. If as many allowances of pensions
shall be made during 1893 as were made
during 1S92 the estimated amount will not
be sufficient, but he does not believe that
this will be the case.
The Undines of tiie I5:ireai.
The commissioner savs that it has lteen
the policy of the office during the past three
years to detail a larger part of the official
force upon original claims than upon in
crease claims, and as a result of this plan
224,047 certificates were issued in original
cases and 79,i 81 certificates issued in in
crease claims under various laws. Dur
ing the fiscal years 18(43 and 1894 he. be
lieves the adjudication of original claims
will be substantially complete and made
current, and that at the close of the fiscal
year 1894,the highest nu mbcr of pensioners to
be on the rolls will have been placed there.
MARBLE PALACE FOR PROCTOR.

WASHIXGTOX, Dec. 1. Senator PnKtor,
of Vermont, is the next man in public life
who will enter upon the construction of a
magnificent new residence in Washington,

building of bis new house on it. The sen
ator proposes, it is said, to make the beauti
ful Vermont marble a feature of the house.
His fortune is invested in Vermont marble
quarries, there are seventy-two feet on K
street and a hundred on Vermont avenue,
and both fronts are to lie of this marble.
Within, the grand staircase and finishings
of the hall are to 1 of marble.
Some Iketails of Uernrsti
In the dining-room the wainscot is to
lie of white marble, the wall above to lie
finished in onyx. As a detail of this room
there is to be a gailtry for orchestra of ela
borately carved marble. The style of the
architecture will bean irregular romau
esque. Senator Proctor is said to have paid
f-t0,(H for the lot. The cost of the house
is estimated at tiiOO.OOO and t he plans have
been drawn by Schneider, who is just com
pleting an elaborate new white stone man
sion for Senator John Sherman.

city that if an extra session is to be held at
all it will not be called for the eai Iy part of

that such a session shall be held are grad

Arbitration to Prevent Strikes.
Chicago, Dec 1. The Alley "L" road
manager the other day discharged a num
ber of engineers, conductors, and guards
for cause. As some of the engineers are
lirotherhood meu they called on Chief Ar
thur to come here, lie had a talk with the
manager in which he learned that the rules
of the company required the hearing of all
grievances betore a disinterested board, and
if any of the discharged men were not
guilty they would be reinstated with pay
during idleness. Arthur nledtred the men
to atrree to the verdict, and the hearing will
be had tomorrow.
Talk of m-cluriiis a Strike "n" Again.
JlOMLSTEAH, pa., JJec. 1. The Amal
gamated association members of Home
stead held a meeting last nit;ht to vote on
the advisability of declaring the strike at
the Carnegie nails on again, iso few men
have been taken back that the members
think they should call their brethren out
again even if the strike is lost, and put the
brand "black sheep" on the Homestead
mills. About 400 men have been taken
back since the strike was declared off, and
most of those were laborers. Another
meeting will be held.

Chetekke, Wy., Dec t.The final count
of the Carbon county vote makes the legis
lature Republication joint ballot, which
will insure the election of a Republican to
the senate unless the Democrats and Popu
lista, who will control the lower house, un
seat a number of the Republicans. This is
likely, as the Democrat charge the Repub
licans with having Btolen five members in
Carbon county by means of false returns.
