The "Unknown Army" Which Steadily Declines to Come in on the Roll. From The Journal Bureau, Boom 45, Post Build ing, Washington. "Washington, Oct. 23.Acubic footof coinage gold is worth $290,977.92. Pension Commissioner Ware has com puted that the outlay for pensions since the foundation of the govern ment, if met in gold, would make an obelisk 10 feet square and 106 feet high. This illustration, perhaps, gives an idea of what $3,000,000,000 means a billion ordinarily expresses something of which the human mind has little comprehension. It is an extraordinary fact that the total cost of the pension system from the foundation of the government to June 30, 1865, or until the civil .war was over, a period of three-quarters of a Century, amountd to but $96,000,000, or the present disbursement for eight months and nine days This:is an ex ample, of V the magnitude of. modern operations.'

Al most any man of 60 years has some infirmity fairly assignable to military service, and so can get a pension, and yet nearly 200,000 such men have not received any such aid. All honor, to the unknown army. A service pen sion act would do many of them, too conscientious to accept a pension un - der present conditions, tardy justice. The Million Mark. It is interesting to note for how long a time the pension roll has lingered around the million mark. Eleven years ago Commissioner Raum suggested, in his annual report, that the number of pensioners would ultimately reach one million. I t has never done 'so on the 30th day of June, of any year, when the tabulation for the official records is made, and probably never will, and yet at the close of four of the months of last year it exceeded that figure. On the last day of June, 1902, the number of :r of the ratio of pen - sioners to survivors on a small scale, with about these results. Of the 504 soldiers employed in the pension bu reau, 401 are pensioners. I t has been computed* that 25 per cent of the num ber now on the roll would be added by a service pension act, exclusive, of course, of the few persons who would refuse to accept it From this con tingent - which has not yet asked for a pension under the liberal laws al - ready existing, 14,000 a year are now coming in. v * ~ * The "Unknown Army." Those who served in the civil war but are not on the pension roll have been described by Commissioner Ware as the "unknown army." He estimates that it will lose 4 per cent by death the coming year. If to this be added the 14,000 who enter the '-'known army" by getting on the pension roll, its membership will be reduced by 22,000. Hence, if the pension laws remain unchanged, this "unknown army" will be reduced to 60,000 by 1908, and in ten years will cease to be a factor altogether. Doubtless, if the individual stories were related of this unknown army, eivinz the rea- Defective Page i On Retirement Pay . The regular establishment, which seems destihed to fight our future bat tles in our tropical campaigns, will not claim much in pensions. They prefer retirement pay, and one man cannot draw both. I t is compara tively easy for a regular army soldier to make the thirty years necessary for retirement now, since service in the Philippines counts double toward that goal, and many young men will hence forth be going out of the army into civil life with this three-fourths of their pay at retirement as a neat lit tle income, with the other privileges which go with it, for the rest of their lives. These charges are borne by the war department and do not figure in the pension roll. The cost of ,-y , - pensionersha stood at 999,- 446. I n a month now about a or three per cent of its disburse ments. This includes the salaries of 1,714 employes, amounting to $2,157,- 210. Commissioner Ware significant ly submits a chapter on their ages in which he shows that ten of his clerks have passed 80 years, twenty more have passed 75, and sixtyrseven more have passed 70. One-third of the em ployes of the bureau are above 60, while the average age of the entire force of the bureau is .5 3 years. This illustrates one of the tendencies of the civil service system for which as yet no adequate provision has been made. Nearly every administration officer will bear testimony to the fact that there should be a service pension sys tem for superannuated government employes, or else" the roll will have to be steadily made larger to supply fresh material. Commissioner Ware recommends the passage of such a law, saying that some system of re - tirement must be devised, as the pres ent lack of anything of the sort is proving unsatisfactory and expensive. The Private Pension Graft. In Speaker-to-be Cannon's plan for retrenchment at the approaching ses sion, cutting out new public buildings and river and harbor. improvements, he will probably put some check on the private pension acts. These, in the last congress, were nearly double those of any preceding congress, even those congresses when the rapidity of the passage of these laws provoked so much comment. Of the 10,353 names which have been put on the pension roll by. special act the fifty-seventh congress contributed 2,171. The pre ceding Henderson congress put in 1,391 names. - The two Reed con gresses immediately preceding added, respectively, 694 and 378 names. Th e two Crisp (democratic) congresses be fore that stood at 119 and 217, re - spectively. This last was a drop from 1,39.8 In the Reed congress of 1889-90. In the first congress under Garfield and Arthur, but 216 special bills were passed, just about one-tenth of the present number. The general pen sion budget was then costing about $55,000,000 a year, while the roll car ried only 285,000 names. - -- ' H. C.

A., wants every woman to know of the wonders accomplished by Lydia E* Pinkham's Vegetable Compound* 1 it d crossed the million line, reaching 1,001,494. This seems likely to remain the high-water mark, at least until a serVice pension act is passed, and unless th at be done in a few years. Since July, 1902, the number has been steadily falling, until by July, 1903, it numbered but 996,- 545. I t has been in the 990's since 1897. The Spanish Wars. The cost to the government for pensions on account of the Spanish and Philippine wars has so . far been small, slightly more than $5,000,000. How much it will reach affords ma - terial for interesting conjecture. Th e number of soldiers and sailors partici pating in the Spanish* war. was 312,- 000, -and in--,the Philippine "and China campaigns 146,000, making a total of just about one-fifth of the number participating in the civil war. On ac count of that struggle pensions amounting to $2,800,000,000 have al ready been paid. One-fifth of that would be $700,000,000, but it is un - reasonable to suppose that the small er war will amount to as much as one-fifth, so notable are the contrasts between the two wars. The average of hardship and danger-and of actual fighting admits of no .comparison. Moreover, the enlistments to the later wars have been subjected to careful medical examination so that presuma bly few participants went into the service with organic diseases upon which a pension claim could after ward be unwittingly based. The gov ernment could not be so particular in 1863. totSi*epr^s.ert%about six months' expenditure tdfdayt^'The war of 181-2, which has continued as an active charge until the present day, has cost but $45,000,000. Its pensioners include one partici pant and 1,115 widows. Were the 181-2 pensioners to have a reunion, poor Hiram Cronk of Oneida county, New York, would be rather lonesome among so many women. H e is now 103 years old. The last survivor of the revolution died in 1869, at the age of 109. I t may be regarded as a gen eral truth'in pension records that the widows last thirty years longer than the participants of any war. About thirty years from how the last of the 1812 widows will be dropping from the just as the last participant is now nearing the end. By widow is un derstood in pension nomenclature all dependentseverybody except actual participants. Fo r the war of 1812, however, practically all the depend ents carried on the rolls are actually widows. During the last year the number of civil war participants on our rolls fell off nearly 40,000, while the number of civil war widows increased by 24,581. This shows that wives, are younger than" their husbands more often than older, and also that our pension laws operate to put something of a premium upon the young woman's marrying the old soldier, many years her senior. Commissioner Ware recommends in his recent report, as have several of predecessors, that a law be passed to prevent granting hereafter a pension to the woman who marries a soldier after he has become a pension er. This would permit the veteran who draws no pension to marry, and on dying subsequently to leave his widow eligible to a pension, but it would cut off the inducement to marry old soldiers near the end ofyear, their lives for the sake of their pen sions. This recommendation ought to be adopted by congress, in the interest of fair play and public morals, but there is little likelihood that it will be. No representative enjoys identifying himself with any measure or any ef forts tending to curtail the pension roll or to lessen those eligible* to a place on it. I t is much easier to get the laws liberalized than to make any change in the other direction. Survivors of the Civil War . The average age of participants of the war for the union is now 63 years. The question is constantly asked: How many survivors of the civil war re - main unpensioned, exclusive of desert ers? This subject has been carefully investigated by Thomas D. Yeager Commissioner Ware's private secre tary, with results which will occasion some surprise. * He believes that the number of survivors of the rebellion on June 30, 1903, was 894,585, or in round numbers, about 9jOO,000. Th e number of these who are "drawing pen sions is 703,456, leaving about 200,000 from whom future additions to the rolls may be drawn.
