DEPENDENT PENSION UILL.
gome ot the President's Keasons for Vetoing the Measure. Washington, February 11.—This is the first general bill that has been sanctioned by Congress since the close of the late civil war permitting pensions to soldier and sailors who served in that war upon the ground of service and present dis ability alone and in the entire absence of injuries received by the casualities and in cidents of such service. While by almost constant legislation since the close of the war there has been compensation awarded for every possible injury received as a re suit of military service in the Union army, and while a great number of laws passed for that purpose have been admin istered with great liberality and have been supplemented by numerous private acts to reach special cases, there has not until now been an avowed departure from the principles thus far adhered to respecting the Union soldier, that the bounty of the government in the way pensions is gener ously ltestowed when granted to those who in military service and in the line of military duty have no greater or less dis ability. iîut it is a mistake to suppose that service pensions such as are per mitted bv the second sect'on of the bill under consideration are new to our legisla tion. In 1-<18, thirty live years after the close of the revolutionary war. there were granted to soldiers engaged in that strug gle conditional upon service until the end of the war or for a term not less than nine months, and requiring of the beneficiary under the act to be one who is or one who after, by reason of his reduced circum stances in life, shall be in need of assist ance from his country for support. An other law of like character was passed in 18*28, requiring service to "the close of the revolutionary war,*' and still another, passed in 1832, provides for those persons not included in the provisions of the statutes but who served two years at some time during the war, and giving propor tionate to those who had served not less than six months. A service pension law was passed for the benefit of soldier of the war of 1812 in the year 1871, fifty-six years alter the close of that war, which re quired only sixty days service, and another was passed in 187*, sixty three years after the war, requiring only fourteen days service. The service pension bill, passed at this session, 37 years after the close of the Mexican war, for the benefit of the soldiers of that war, requires either some degree of disability or dependency or that the claimant, under its provisions, should be 62 years of age, and iu either case that he should have served 60 days or been actual ly engaged. It will be c eeu that the bill of 1818 and the Mexican pension bill, being thus pass ed nearer the close of the wars, in which its beneficiaries were engaged, than the others—one 35 years and other 39 years after the termination of such wars, embrac ed, and to the soldiers of the Mexican war and their widows up to June 30, 1885, 7,619. This number of pensions was granted to the soldiers of the war, involv ing much hardships and disabilities in curred, are the result of such service, and it was not until within the last month that the lew remaining survivors were awarded a service pension. The war of the rebellion terminated nearly 22 years ago. The number of men furnished for its prosecution is stated to be 2,772,408. Statutes have never been passed to every kind of injury or disability incurred in the military service anywhere. Under the | statutes 561,576 pensions have been grant ed from the year 1861 to June 30, 1886, and more than 26,000 pensions have been added to the rolls by private acts passed to meet the cases of many of questionable merit, which persons who were quite ad vanced in age. are assumed to be compara tively few in number and whose circum stances, dependencies and disabilities were clearly defined and could be easily fixed. The laws referred to appear to have been passed at a time so remote from the military services of the persons from the military services persons whom they embraced that their extreme age alone was deemed to supply the presump tion of dependency and need. The num ber of enlisted men in the revolutionary war is stated to have been 309,791, and in in the war of 1812, 578,622. But it is esti mated that on account of repeated re-en listments. the number of persons actually engaged in these wars did not exceed one half of the number represented by these figures. In the war with Mexico the num ber of enlistments is reported to be 112,230; which represents a greater proportion of individuals engaged than the reported en listments in the two previous wars. The number of pensions granted under all laws to soldiers of the revolution is given at 60,269, and to soldiers of the war of 1812 and their widows, 60,178. The general laws did not cover on the first day of July, 1886, but 365,663 pensions of all classes, of which 305,605 were to survivors of the war ot the rebellion and their widows and dependents. For the year ending June 30, 1887, $75,000,000 have been appropriated for the payment of pensions, and the amount expended for that purpose from July 1, 1861, to July 1, 1886, is $808,624, *11.51. While annually paying out such a vast sum for pensions already granted, it is now proposed by the bill under consid eration to award service pensions to soldiers of the wars in which the United States had beeu engaged, including, of course the war of the rebellion, and to pay those en titled to the befits of the act $12 per month. As far as relates to the soldiers of the civil war, the bounty it affords them is given thirteen years earlier than it has been fur nished to the soldiers of any other war and liefore a large majority of its beneficiaries have advanced in age beyond the strength and vigor of the prime of life. Itexacts only military or naval service of three months, without any requirement of [actual engage ment with an enemy in battle and without subjection to any actual dangers of war. 1 am of the opinion that it may be fairly contended that under the provisions of this section any soldier whose faculties of mind or body have become impaired by accident, disease or age, irrespective of his service in the army, and who by his labor only is left incapable of gaining a fair support, he might with unimpaired powers have pro vided for himself and who is not so well endowed with this world's goois as to live without work may claim to participate in its bounties. It is not required that he should be in poverty, but only that laber should be necessary to his support in some degree ; nor is it it required that he should be now receiving support from others. Believing this to be the proper interpre tation of the bill, I cannot but remember that the soldiers of our civil war in their pay and bounty received such compensa tion for miltary services as has never l>een received by soldiers before since mankind first went to war. That never before on behalf of any soldiers have so many and such generous laws been passed to relieve against incidents ot war. Statutes have been passed giving them the preference in all public employment. That needy and homeless Union soldiers of the rebellion have been to a large extent provided for at the Soldiers Homes, instituted and sup ported by the government, where they are maintained. Has it not been proposed to 1 i I | ; | ( i ' ; ! ; , ! render government aid toward the support of its soldiers, based alone on its mili tary service recent and where age and circumstances appeared so little to demand such aid ? Hitherto such relief has been granted survivings oldiers in large numbers. In conclusion the President says : I ad here to the sentiments heretofore ex pressed, but the evil threatened by this bill is, in my opinion, such that, charged with great responsibilities in liebalf of the people, I cannot do otherwise than I do, to bring to the consideration ot this measure my best efforts of thought and judgment and perferm my constitutional duty in re lation thereto regardless of all conséquentes, except such as appear to me to be related to the best and highest interests of the country, after a long lapse of time since their military service and as a parting benefaction tendered by grateful people. SUBMERGED. Unprecedented Floods in Michigan«« Incalculable Damage Sustained. | Lyons, Mich., February 11.—The Hood here is simply terrible. A panic has seized some of the people, and it is impossible to get an estimate of the losses. The water in some places is four feet deep in many residences, and the same state of affairs prevails in store rooms. Everybody is mov ing or are preparing to move. Last night there was the most excitement the village has ever experienced. Up to last night three buildings had been washed away and demolished and many others were badly damaged. At Muir the same serious conditions prevail and merchants have abandoned their stores. Advices from other points are to the same effect, but Lyons seems to be the worst sufierer. Three Rivers is surrrounded with water. All the shops have been closed at that point. Immense lumber piles are afloat. The Lake Shore railroad track is in great danger of being washed away. At Oswego six inches of snow fell last night and the river is still rising. At Monroe the river has beeu slowly rising lor the last twenty-four hours, bat the ice is broke—giving free passage to the lake. The banks of the riyer are lined with immense walls of ice and frozen snow, rising eight or ten feet above the present high water mark, and great fields of ice of the same thickness fill all the streets adjacent to the river. At Jackson the pressure of water in Grand river in the mill pond above the city was too great, ahd last night the sluices were opened with the result that the water rose several feet, and the Grand Trunk bridge is now under water. The cellars in the business blocks in the center of town are all Hooded from 18 inches to two and a half leet. The State fair grounds are completely submerged, and on a large tract of land in the South part of the city the water is up to the lioors of the dwellings. The prison walls stand in the midst of a lake. A slight abatement of the Hood was noticed last night but it is on in all its fury this morning, The rain fell in tor rents until about midnight when it changed to snow and by daylight fully eight inches of snow and sleet had fallen. There is a regular northeaster with a twenty mile wind. The water has risen two feet in the last four hours and is still rising. The people are worn out working night and day to save their property. Maple and Grand rivers unite here and both are raging. It is impossible to give a complete estimate of the damage done. A rough estimate makes the aggregate between $75,000 and $ 100 , 000 . Detroit, February 12.—The rising waters at Lyons has shut out all communi cation with the outside world by wire, and tho Evening Journal's correspondent sends the lollowing special from Muir, on the op posite side of the river, that place being reached by a circuitous route : The Hood continues and the water is rising a foot an hour. A great ledge of ice reached here this morning, forming a jam thirty feet high above the bridge and caus ing the river to leave its bed and rush with a mighty force through the business portion of Lyons, sweeping everthing be fore it. Twenty buildings were carried away and as many more were moved from their foundations. Several business fronts were also broked in by ice and Hoating timber. A portion of the bridge was lifted from its abutments and went down with the ice. END OF THE STRIKE. Rush of Longshoremen for Work. New York, February 12.—Following the declaration of District Assembly No. 49, that the strike was off, there was a general rush of longshoremen and freight handlers along the whole river front this morning to get back, and on some piers along the East river the strikers had not even waited for orders from headquarters to go back. As early as 6 o'clock gangs of strikers were seen around the piers wait ing to catch the foremen and superinten dents as they came to their respective piers. At the Maine Steamship Co.'s pier all the old hands had returned. At the Clyde, Mallory and Ward piers also many of the old hands had found their way back, but they were not recognized as unionists. By Monday it is expected that the busi ness of the companies will have resumed formal shape. Another Strike Ended. Pittsburg, February 11.—A Connells ville, Penn., special says: The strike of the yardsmen of the Pittsburg, McKees port & Youghogheny railroad has been settled, the company conceding the in crease in wages demanded. Trains are running as usual to-day. His Punishment. New York, February 11. —"Boodle" Alderman O'Neil has been sentenced to four years and six months imprisonment and also to pay a fine of $2,000. Collision on the Sound. New' York, February 11.—The steamer Waterbury, from Bridgeport, looked like a wreck when she arrived here this morning, her whole port side being one mass of broken glass, wood, iron and ropes. It was ascertained that when near Glen Cove, in Long Island SouLd, during the night, she was run into by a schooner, which came upon her unseen, a heavy fog prevailing at the time. The schooner backed off, appar ently uninjured, and disappeared and her name was not learned. There were twenty three passengers on the steamer, five of whom were women, and all awoke in great fright when the collision occurred. The damage to the steamer can be easily be re paired. On a War Footing. Brussels, February 12. —It is announced that all the forts in Belgium, along the frontier of France, bave received complete war armament. Arrangements have been even carried to the extent of mobilizing troops. King Leopold will be commander in chief of the Bulgarian forces.J i International Range Convention. Denver, February 10.— A resolution was adopted in the International Range Convention to-day, setting forth that Cole man, commissioner of the agricultural de partment, had done everything possible under the laws of the United States, to protect the cattle of the country from pleuro-pneumonia, and extending thanks from the association to him for his action in the matter of the proposition of Mr. Gillan, of Cleveland, Ohio, for pooling the cattle interest of the country and forming a stock company with a capital of $100, 090,000 to carry out this project Referred to the board of directors. A resolution was adopted stating that false reports have been circulated concern ing the financial condition of the range cattle business in representing that the business was bankrupt, and resolving that the con vention deny the report and state that the range cattle business is in a reasonably healthy condition, with prospects of im provement. This resolution received a hearty endorsement from all the delega tions. The convention then re-elected Col. R. G. Head, of Colorado, President; J. T. Brush, First Vice President ; J. C. Leary, of New Mexico, Secretary ; J. A. Cooper,of Denver, Treasurer, and an executive board. The convention adjourned sine die. Agricultural Convention. New York, February 9.—In the agricul tural convention to-day a resolution was adopted, approving the organization of the National Viticlture Association, greeting it as a co-worker in American industries, and urging Congress to pass bills before it to check the manufacture of spurious wines. Another resolution, requesting Congress to act favorably upon the bill creating the department of Agriculture and Labor, was adopted. A resolution was introduced, setting forth that General Hatch, of Missouri, was the unanimous choice of the association for appointment of secretary of Agricul ture and Labor. This provoked some discussion, and it was the sentiment of the convention that such action will be peculiar. The resolu tion was withdrawn. Another resolution of the association pledged itself to co-operate with the Na tional Pure Food Association in securing the passage of the food adulteration bill, at present before Congress. International Cattle Convention. Denver, February 9.—At the morning session of the International Cattle conven tion several papers on the cattle industry and the best way to conduct it were read. A resolution was adopted, demanding a re trenchment of the expenses of shipping beef cattle. It provides for the appoint ment of a committee of three to confer with the House committee with a view of obtaining a uniform price of $25 per head lor the sale of range cattle. Mr. J. J. McGill, of Cleveland, was call ed for and he read a short address on the monopolies of stock yards concerns and the middlemen, in which he laid the troubles of the cattle growers not receiving just prices for their cattle at the doors of these middlemen. Interstate Commerce. Pittsburg, February 9.—At a recent conference of the leading officers of the Pennsylvania railroad company, who are connected with its freight business, to dis enss the interstate commerce bill, it was the unanimous verdict that the measure was exceptionably favorable to that com pany, and would benefit rather than in jure its business. The meeting considered the changes in the methods of handling freight which will be introduced, and a new plan in the rough was formed, which will be put in practicable shape in a short time. The sending of copies of contracts to the commissioner will require an extra clerical force, as from 600 to 700 will be forwarded daily. President Roberts noti fied the officials that it was the intention of the company to live up to the spirit and letter of the law as it now reads, though the construction of some of its clauses by the commission might cause changes later on. Railroad Ordered to be Sold. Indianapolis, Ind., February 10.—A decree of foreclosure was entered by the Federal Circuit Court this afternoon in the cross complaint of the Central Trust Com pany, of New York, against the Indiana, Bloomington & Western Railway. The eastern division of the road is now mort gaged for $3,000,000, and the western di vision for a total of $5,000,000, of which $1,500,000 is on second mortgage. The road is to be sold in accordance with the agreement and reorganization entered into in the interest of the bondholders. The total capitalization is $10,000,000, of which over $9,500,000 is represented in the reor ganization proposed. The court directs that the commissioner in Chancery (Fishback) advertise the property for thirty days and sell it the highest bidder. Bidders are re quired to make a deposit of $1,000,000, and no bid for less than $3,000,000 for the entire property will be entertained. The sale will take place at the Federal build ing, in this city. Capitalists Seeking Investment. St. Louis, February 9.—The Missouri Pacific Railroad sent out two very large trains to California to-day. The one from St. Louis was composed of nine cars, six of them being Pullman sleepers, containing 135 passengers.

"Washington, February 11.—After a long session of the conferees on the anti polygamy bill they reached a complete agreement on the points of difference be tween the two houses. Another meeting will be held to perfect the phraseology of the bill, which is expected to be reported to the Senate on Monday. The exact pro visions of the measure cannot as yet be obtained. It includes, however, what is regarded by the conferees the best feat ures of the House and Senate bills. The section of the Senate bill which provides for the appointment of a board of trustees to administer on the property of the Mor mon church was omitted. The bill re peals the charter of the Mormon church, instructs the Attorney General to institute proceedings to recover all the property of that corporation not acquired in accord ance with the laws of the United States. The churches and grounds, church yards and property used for the purpose of wor ship is not interfered with. It also revokes the charter of the Mormon Immigration Society and devotes the property of both corporations to public school purposes. It leaves the election law substantially as at present, except it vests in the President the power to appoint Probate Judges, sub ject to the confirmation of the Senate. The Senate provisions of the House bill, author izing the administration of an oath to the legal wife to sustain the charge of poly gamy. is included. The provision of the House bill, eliminating polygamists from registration lists is also included in the bilk Fire and Loss of Lite. Sr. Louis, February 9.—To-night the livery stable of Jessie Arnold, on Chestnut street, burned. There were about two hun dred horses in the stable, and one-half or more of them are said to have been burned. There were a large number of fine carriages, buggies, hearses and other vehicles in the building, nearly all of which were con sumed. After the fire had been under way about an hour, and while the firemen were making their way into the building, one of the high interior walls fell with a crash, burying several firemen and some of the spectators in the debris. It is not known how many persons were covered, but at 1:20 a. m , three dead bodies bad been taken out. One of them was the body of Joseph Schimper, foreman of engine No. 6. The two others are supposed to be stable hands, names unknown. Six persons are said to have been wounded more or less seriously, but their names cannot be obtained to night. Efforts are now being made to re cover more bodies from the ruins. The loss on the stable is estimated at about $150,000, with a reported insurance of $30, 000 . St. Louis, Mo, February 10.—Besides the pecuniary loss which resulted last night from the destruction of Jesse Ar nold's livery stable, one loss was suffered which is irreparable. The hearse in which the remains of Abraham Lincoln were con veyed to their last resting place was con sumed in the Harnes. Food in Paris During the Seige.

Makiug the Fog U useful. [San Francisco Argonaut.] Of all the queer devices pertaining to a seafaring life the queerest is the automat ic fog bell that used to ring on Race Point, Cape Cod. There was a big bell with a clock-work that would mournfully toll it whenever it was set agoing. The bell was under cover, but projecting from the house was a long, nicely balanced lever with a big sponge on the out end. There was a little roof over the sponge to keep the rain off, but when a fog came on the moisture would saturate the sponge, and the weight bearing the lever down would start the machine and set the bell to tolling. If the fog soon disappeared the sponge dried out and the lever stopped the bell. Admits of No Dispute. [New York Sun.] Minister (to church member)—The noise which a ten-dollar bill makes when drop ped into a contribution box, my dear Mr. Smith, isn't heard in this world, but it reverberates through heaven. Church member—Yes, sir ; but if it rever berated less in heaven and more on earth, there would be a greater number of them dropped. TRADE TAR MARK.

A CHILD'S SKIN, Ears and Scalp Covered with EczematousIScabsSand sores cured by Cuticura My little son, aged eight years, lias been'afflic ted with Eczema of ttie scalp, and at times a great portion of the body, ever since he was two years old. It t<egan in his ears, and extended to his scalp, which became covered with scabs and sores, and from which a sticky fluid poured out, causing intense itching and distress, and leaving his hair matted and lifeless. Underneath these scabs the skin was raw, like a piece of beefsteak. Graduoliy the hair came out and was destroyed, until but a small patch was left at the back of the head. My friends in Peabody know how my little boy has suffered. At night he would scratch his head until his pillow was covered witli blood. I used to tie his hands behind him. and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching ; but it was no use. he would scratch. I took him to the hos pital and to the best physicians in Peabody with out success. About tills time, some friends, who had b»en cured by the ('UTICOBA Remrdies, pre vailed upon me to try them. I began to use them on the 15th of January last. In seven months every particle of the disease was removed. Not a spot or scab remains on his sealp to tell the story of his sotfering. His hair lias returned, and is thick and strong, and his scalp us sweet and clean as any child's in the world. 1 cannot say enough to express my gratitude for this wonder ful cure by the CuncüRA Remedies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement is true and without exaggeration. CHARLES McKAY. Oct. 6, 18S5. I'eabody, Mass. I have seen Mr. McKay's boy when badly af fected with the Eczema. He was a pitiful sight to look at.
