Asked for Pension,
But-He Didn't Get It
- BALTIMORE, Dec. 6. Governor Wood
row Wilson, in a algned statement Issued
here tonight regarding a etory printed
today that he had' applied to the Carnegie
foundation for a pension, admitted that
he had made such application before his
election aa governor of New Jersey.
The governor justified his action on the
grounds of long service as a teacher;
that he had no private means to depend
upon, and that "a man who goes Into
politics, bound by the principles of honor
puts his family and all who may be de
pendent upon him for support at the
mercy of any Incalculable turn of the
wheel of fortune."
J Ib . said, .ha.- pould-' not understand, why
the matter should come up now, as the
foundation had not granted the allowance.

grounds of a suit for deposition of the

of the property among Mr. and Mrs.
Wood's children, started in district court
ty Mrs. Wood and the children yester
day. Frank T. Hamilton, trustee of the
estate, is the defendant Mr. Woods will
provided that his estate remain Intact
during the life of his widow, she to re
ceive the entire Income. Upon her
death It was to be distributed among
the children, I-.eB.oy and Robert Wood,
Hen B. Wood,. Jr., and Mrs. May Wood
The petition asserts that Mrs. Wood's
financial affairs have become so Involved
tliut creditors are about to force her to
surrender her entire life estate and that
phe has assigned her entire Income to
lier children in consideration of their
agreement to pay all her debts up to
the amount of 115,000. In view of this
situation, say the petitioners, there no
lunger exists any reason why the affairs
of the estate should not be wound up
and the property distributed.
