In view of the recent decision by the de

until jrity of the commissioner of pensions to

Washington, Oct. IT.—Tho following
an
provides tlmt: "Except in cases of per-1
mènent qiocillc disabilities no Increase of I UH
pension shall lie allowed to commence |
prior U> tho date of the examining sur
geons' certificate establishing tho same,
made under the |»'uding claim for increase,"
and also that a rating made by the commis
sioner of pensions, except iu certain cases
of
wliere, by law, a specified amount is at- I The
tfu'lunl by statute to the disability named, I
is determined by tb© degree of disability
found by a me*licnl examination of the I ÄIM
claimant Tims where u clalmaiith «lis«- I
baity to Udai ho l. given LdTZ uteiZ
mmj is no is given buuui iuu iuhuui |
sal
a fixed amount.
How They Are Grade«!.
If one man is found t» 1» very little dis
able«! he is given 1 - 1 H, or ( 1 ; or if he is still
more disabled, IMS, or JÜ, ami if still more
disabled, 3-1S or 4-lfi, nud so on. If a man,
for instance, has lost a portion of hta finger
and Is thus to an afipriH-iable degree <Us
abled, ho may have bwm rateil by soma ex
amining hoard at $4 for that, and so on in
some other case for some other slight dis
ability. If, however, ho has suffered from
wh
chills or malaria or mm» other disability I
contracted by him by exposure In the
swnmim during his service as a soldier, and I
which may not prove permanent or may lu- I
crease, ho may havo been thought slightly |
disabled, if nt all, and entitled nl the Win- I
uiug and almost to a small fraction of total, I ('■
say »3, which Is the amount fixed iu many of I ,.|
tho disabilities allowed. In this latter ease I (J
it might possibly have btq-n a «luestlon with j g
the board whether ho was to get anything or
was disabled at all; but from u lenient con
struction of hta case they have given him $3.
An InJuAtice to other Soldier*.
If, now, by an ardor of the commi*sloner,
without regard to this medical cxamiuaumi, I
th© man who has thus been receiving is 1
advanced to $4, without the man who wo« J
more disabled and who had Veen rated at f-4 |
being himself advattoed, H to obvious that I
Injustice is done to the higher graded man, I
because he to put upon a pur with a man evi- |
betw
sofilior
ilently less «iisablod. And
mid soldier there is an unfair preference of
the less injured. If these eases, however, are
all referred to the exnraioing surgeons and
they find the disability to be equal to # I
and it is then allowed, everything has been
done in due onler mid according to law and
upon n basis that any man can understand,
and which will have limits fixed by medical
knowledge, experience and professional rci>
utation.
On the contrary, if arbitrary orders of the
commissioner are the basis it must result .
that a few are mode favorite, and given a
particular amount, and the great mass of I
the men who havo deluded upon m.slieal |
examination, are put at a gi-e.it d.sadvan-.
tage. Therefore, it was decided that there |
is no authority in law for nn order arbi
trarily increasing a great mass of men's pri
sions in tho (ace of the statute already
cited, mid which order is not extended to alt
the pensioners' cases.
Tho commissioner, whose order has given 1
rise to this decision, in bis recent letter to I
Mr. Dalxell «lid not claim that his order was
to be construed i«s;ordlng to it» terms, for I
he said: "While commissioner 1 issued two I
onlers which 1 thought, ami still think,wore I
mighty good ones; first, that Uie SJ, (XX) men I
on the pension roll st loss than $4 a month
should all, unies» they had a medical «'X- I

animation before tbelr homo board, with a 1
view to putting them up to at least ft jx;r

for it was and Is my opinion that a man who
is worthy of any pension nt all, fl a wivk ta I
small enough to consider a pension."
The Letter to Dalxell.
C«immlssloncr Tanner's Order.
April 25, 1HSO, —
In all cases where a pensionable disability is
found, the rate allowed shall not be Uns than
«4 per month, to date from nud including
March 27 ISSfl " I
Tho dwision that was mode by the assistant
secretary is hi accor,lance with these two I
propostiotuL Tho commissioner announced I
one before ho raSgncd his office; tho other
after, to Mr. Dalxell. The assistant «ocra
tary takes them together and notse|iarately. I
The order as made was arbitrary, unqullfled
and required an advance without examina- I
liou to the amount sjns'lde«! at (4 per
mouth. It did not pro[»)ae to drop anyone
as tbe letter protended it did, and it did not
order any one for examination before the
homo board as the letter pretended It did.
It was an unauthorized, unqualified and U
legal order for every pensioner to be advanced
to «4 who was receiving less; it was made
April 25, and it was proposed to havo it take
effect March 27.
Vnauthurlse«! Distribution of Money.
A slight consideration of this matter will
show that to give away $88,000 a month of
the public money on such an order os this
would 1» but tho lieginning of a system by
which million* could lie expended uueou

such warrants drawu upon it to be cashed
without questioning. It Is also obvious that
such a course a* this would not be of benefit
to tho soldiers ultimately, os it is intended
only to benefit those who are the least disa -1
bled; in other words, those who have the
least claim for disability. If one may Judge
that these men are to I» advanced upon a
