N. -.. Dial of South Carolina.

The situation has - become serious,
ording to the senator. After point
g out that the average pension now
aid by the government amounts to
443.13, whereas in 19.17 it amounted
o only $242, and .predicting that the
reposed .bonus would cost the: goy
rnment approximately $1,000,000,000,
enator Dial said:
"I was in South Carolina the other
day. One member of the legislaturo
from my county Is a blind man, the
only' blind member of that body. He
has served my county well for the
last two years. He announced ithe
other day that 'lie -was a candidate
'again, and I 'was struck by his an
nouncement.' 4ie said he wanted the
'people to vote for him on his merits
and because he had served .them to
. The best of his ability, and he said
further in that announcement that he
did not iwant a siglo vote through
sympathy. That is the kind of peo

the kind. of. spirit that has made this

crutches, and yet he performs his
daily duties, attends to his business,
runs a 'little farm and makes a living.
He is. a man of very limited means.
He spoke to me about this 'legislation
in 'Washington. His eye was clear,
and 'he looked at me and said he
thanked God every day of his life that
he had never accepted charity from
the people, notwithstanding his crip

practically: a dependent population,
people who have no more manhood
than a sparrow, going around whining,
asking for some public pap. We will
destroy all' of the initiative, we .will
destroy all of the ambition, we will
destroy all of the Incentive of the
American people that has made this
country great since we founded it;
and it does seem to me that senators,
people who are (big enough to 'be elect
ed to- the United States senate, ought
to stop and remember that there is
somebody else in this country besides
the people who are forever knocking
at the door of the treasury.
"I do not believe it is so much those
people who want this legislation as it
Is some members of congress who
act in fear, and want to dole money
out of the public treasury. I do not
believe that 5 'per cent 'of .the honest

in the states where they get a large

we are going to stop it. I confess that
I am alarmed . - . 'I 'have thought
*that 'pez'haps it would be necessary
to amend the constitution. I have
not studied the matter' from a legal
standpoint, but I do not 'know now
whether 'we are permitted uinder the

would say, 'God speed the day.'
