Tlie Dependent Pension Bill Goes to the President. The Conference Report Adopted by the Senate. The Measure Antagonized by South ern Senators Only. Ninety Per Cent, of the Union Soldiers Benefited—lmmense Appropriations Required. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, June 23. —The senate has agreed to the conference report on the dependent pension bill, and the bill now goes to the president. Senate Proceedings. Washington, June 23. —1n the senate today Ingalls offered a resolution (agreed to) instructing the committee en priv ileges and elections to inquire as to the date when, under the law and pre cedents, the salaries of senators from Montana, Washington and North and South Dakota began. The senate resumed consideration of the agricultural college aid bill. Morrill offered a substitute for the various amendments pending Saturday, as to the division of the funds between colored and white schools. The conference report on the depen dent pension bill was taken up and Berry epoke against it. The practical effect of it would be, Berry said, to put 90 per cent, of the union soldiers on the pension roll, and no northern senator or representa tive dared stand up in opposition to the pension bill. The northern Dem ocrats and northern Republicans contended with each other as to which will go the farthest to satisfy these demands. If any south ern senator or representative dared oppose the pension bill, he was told on one side that he would injure the party, and on the other he was denounced as a traitor who had no right to announce any opinion on the subject of pensions. Gorman also opposed the conference report. He said the expenditure under the bill aggregated $78,073,054, and this added to .$115,000,000 under the existing law, would leave the treasury bankrupt in 1891. Davis, chairman of the committee, said Berry had heen a consistent oppo nent of pension legislation for the bene fit of union soldiers, and what he said today was on a direct line with what he said on other occasions. Davis denied the correctness of Gorman's figures, and said the expenditures under the bill would be about forty million dollars. He denied that the bill was a service pension bill, and asserted that it was a disability bill pure and simple. Gorman said if tlie bill became a law there would be a deficit of $100,000,000 in 1892, and even if it did not become a law there would be a deficit of $40,000, --000. He called attention to what a Re publican leader (Mr. Blame), "the greatest leader that party had in his day and generation," had said as to tlie extravagance of appropriations and un thoughtful and unwise legislation in the matter of revenue. He complimented Davis for the courage with which he had stemmed the tide of demagogues and claim agents and prevented the report ing of a bill that would have coat $150, --000,000 a year. Ingalls advocated the conference re port. This was an obligation just as sacred as that under which the soldiers were paid. And yet the senate was asked to postpone it; to higgle and hag gle about it. For himself, he was in favor of removal of the limitation in the act, granting arrears pensions. He did not care whether it cost $100,000,000 or a billion dollars. Vest spoke of the monstrous abuses that had grown up under the pension system, and declared the belief that the pending bill was being pressed for per sonal and political motives. He as serted that the pension list was unduly swollen in Indiana, because it was a pivotal state and its vote necessary to elect a president. And he prophesied that the people of the United States would revolt against the pension system and its abuses. Turpie said he had not heard of any charity in Indiana in the administration of the pension bureau, and he was not prepared to say that political bias had anything to do with the granting or re fusing of pensions. Hale expressed the hope that the sol diers would not get the idea from what had been said today that the senate was favorable to the payment of arrears pen sions or to the equalization of bounties or the payment of the difference between paper money and gold. He thought al together too much was said about what the nation owed the soldiers. The prominent feeling in his state was that the needy soldier should not suffer, but that nothing should be wasted on a man who did not need a pension for support. The true soldier did not want money wasted. They want their suffering comrades aided, and they want the glory of having fought for their country without respect to money considerations. Finally the discussion closed and a vote was taken. The conference report was agreed to, yeas 84, nays 18. A conference was ordered on the forti fication bill, and Dawes, Plumb and Gorman were appointed conferees on the part of the senate. After executive session the senate ad journed. House Proceedings.
