Democrats Trying to Make
Economy Record Are
Face to Face With
v. PENSION LIST
Staggering Sum Fixed by.
Those Anxious to Make v
Political Showing at
(By Victor Elliott.)
WASHINGTON. May 26. How to
avoid a vote upon a bill that will
add S45.0Qtf.COO to the pension rolls
is a problem that daily confronts
the economical democrats of the
house. The bill now occupies such a
place upon tho calendar that only
the most catcrul strategy -will pre
vent its consideration.
Tho 55.000,000 pension bill is a
sort of a holdover from last session,
and it caused so much trouble then
that President Taft indicated that
he might veto it unless the amount
carried was substantially reduced.
It passed the house, however, but
was cot reached in the senate.
May Be Side-Stepped.
The bill formerly was fatnered t
a republican. Now its author is a
democrat, which makes It doubly
hard for tho democrats to refuse ac
tion upon It. "Nevertheless, !L has
been side-stepped twice this session,
and, if the plans of the leaders go
through, it will be side-stepped again
whenever it bobs" up in bothersome
Representative Carl Anderson, ot
Ohio. Is tho doraocrat who has put
his side of the house In a hole.
Representative Anderson come from
a constituency largely comprised of
old soldiers, union veterans of the
war between the states. Any sort
of pension legislation is bound to
mate a hit in tho district, for Ohio
boasts perhaps as many veterans as
any dale in tho union.
Big Increase Made.
When the present session of con
ress convened. Representative An
derson wasted no time in framing a
bill along the lines of the Sulloway
measure that went through the house
last session. It provides for a graded
tncrcase of tho pensions ot thoso
now upon the rolls, and, in addl
tion, adds quite a few old soldiers
to tho eligible class. Conservative
estimates are that the bill, If enacted
trn law. will mean an increased
appropriation for pensions of $45.
C0&000 tho first year. A sum almost
as large must be appropriated for
tho first few years after its passage.
As the old soldiers die, tho ad
vocatea of the bill say that the pen
sion toll will be decreased accord
ingly, but there are others who
insist that pensions seem to go on
forever, regardless of the death raw
of the veterans.
Insist en Economy.
The democratic houso is out for

heralded broadcast, and tho militant

The resignation was in no way ac

came only a letter, brief, tragic, and
striking a sort or awe into tno lis

dead silence Instead of the awaited
uproar in the chamber, but in the
thronged streets the crowes were
boisterous at ip news that Diaz
was no more president.
The moment of the acceptance of
the resignation was at 4:54 o'clock.
Praise for Diaz
The letter was introduced by Dep

DIAZ'S LETTER TO CHAMBER
"Sirs: The Mexican people, who so generously
covered me with honorsj vhoproclaimed me their
leader during the war, who patriotically assisted me in
the work undertaken to develop the industry and
commerce of the republic, establish its credit, gain
for it the respect of the world and obtain for it an
honorable position in the concert of nations that same
people, sirs, have revolted in armed military bands,
stating, that my presence in the exercise of supreme
executive power is the cause of this insurrection. -
"I do not know any fact Immediately putable to me
which could have caused this social phenomenon; but
permitting though not admitting, I may be unwitting
ly culpable, such a possibility makes me least able to
reason out and decide my o;'n culpability. There
fore, respecting, as I have always respected, the peo
ple, I come before the supreme representatives in dr
der to resign, unreservedly, the office of constitutional
president of the republic, with which the national vote
honored me, which' I do with all the more reason since,
in order to continue in office, it would be necessary to
shed Mexican blood, endangering the credit of the
country, dissipating its wealth, exhausting its re
sources and exposing its policy to international com
plications." "I hope, gentlemen, that when the passions which
are inherent' to all revolutions have been calmed, a
more conscientious and justified study will brins out
in the national mind the -correct acknowledgment
which will allow me 1o die carrying engraved in my
soul the just estimation- that throughout .my life I
have devoted to and will' devote to my countrymen.
