The West Point Hazing.
A congressional committee is inves
tigating tho West Point hazing and the
Cad< 's are the principal witnesses.?
Geu. Dick, of Ohio, had Cadet Mabaf
fey, of Texas, on tho witness's stand:
"You are satisfied you hazed Mr. Mo
Arthur and that he was sick, in fact
hail convulsions after it?" Baid Mr.
' Yes, sir."
Did you think it was cruel?"'
Well, young man, for your informa

atrocious, base, dotestable, disgraceful,
dishonorable, disreputable, heinous,
outrageous, scandalous, shameful,
shameless, villanous and wicked," ex
claimed Mr. Dick.
Hazing is bad enough, but ho is a
dangerous character to be at largo
loaded to the muzzle with adjectives
after the manner of Gen. Dick.

The State Pension Law.
We think the Confederates made a
a mistake in requiring Pensioners al
ready on the rolls to require now proof
of service. In manv cases holpless
widows and old sohbeiv have come
from other States and tho matter ol
proof Cj service attii slate day is out of
reason, requiring them to hunt up wit
nesses as rar? oll' as Texas and Vir

proper. Whore they have been long
on tho rolls they should be allowed to
remain, the burden of proof being on
the other side. In most, cases it is im
possible for widows to Identify tho
