Wabhinqton, M«t 27.—Probably the
most Important pension decision ever
sent from the office of the secretary of
tbe interior to the commissioner of pen
sions was filed today. It is believed by
those high in authority in the pension
bnrean that it wilt redoes the payment
of pensions under tbe act of June, 1890,
between $15,000,000 and $20,000,000. It
Involves tbe repeal of an order issued by
General Reum and approved by Assist
ant Secretary Bussey, and returns to
the language of the statute requiring
disability not of aervice origin to be
auch as to prevent the applicant from
earning support by manual labor.
The decision is in tbe case of one Ben
nett, who sought a pension under the
old law, alleging that while in service
•t Raleigh, N. 0., he was prostrated by
sunstroke, which resulted in partial
deafness in both ears. Tbe application
was denied on tbe ground that wbile tbe
applicant has a slight deafness, it is not
oi sufficient severity to warrant any rat
ing. Bennett subsequently applied for
and received a pension of $12 a menth
under tha act of June 27,1800.
"Incapacity to perform manual labor,"
says the secretary, "which is the founda
tion to a right to a pension under the act
of June 27, 1800, fixes an entirely differ
ent standard of disability from that con
tained in tbe revised statutes, cov
ering injuries oi service ori
gin. Disabilities incurred wbile in
actual service and incapacity coming
upon the applicant long aster the ser
vice ceased, are made by law to stand
upon an entirely different footing.
Those Incurred during tbe service and
in tbe line of duty are pensionable with
out regard to capacity to earn support
and graded without reference to this
condition. Disability resulting from
causes otbar tbaa service origin are only
pensionable when incapacity to labor
joins with incapacity to earn support
and grades the rating dependent upon
their twe condition*. When by order
No. 104 (issued by Ranm) it waa de
clared that disabilities under tbe act of
Jnne SI, 1890, should be rated as of ser
vice origin, tbe very principle which
governed the ratine nnder the met of
June 97,1890, waa displaced, and a role
applicable to a different act was sub

Secretary Smitb, in another commu
nication to the commissioner of pen
sions, says it is hardly necessary to pre

the proposition thst neither the secre
tary nor the commissioner can by order
or practice supersede an act of congress,
and be therefore directs that hereafter
the practices of the office conform to

Washington, May 27.—Secretary Her

enter the place. He will apply for a re
straining order tomorrow.

GOVERNOR FOSTER'S FAILURE.
It Is Worse Than at First
Financial Institutions of Fostoria in
a Shaky Condition.
The Ex-Secretary Moralizes on tha Folly
of Going In Debt Beyond One's
Asset. -Another Bank
By the Associates Press.l
Fostoria, 0., May 27.—The situation
here today, ao far as the Foster failure
is concerned, shows little change. There
is a general feeling of uneasiness in all
branches of trade. Governor Foster
said this morning he had no further
statement to make. Tbe Mechanics'
savings bank, on which a run waa
started yesterday, reports more deposits
than withdrawals this morning, and on
Monday expects to open as a general
Money ia very tight, which may force
to the wall firms which otherwise might
pull through. The diversified nature of
Governor Foster's failure makes the
outlook exceedingly dubious and places
the results far beyond the range of pre
diction. Three window glass companies
and iron works will close down tonight
and several hundred mechanics will be
thrown out of employment.
The deposits in the Foster bank are
about $300,000. The governor bears up
well under the calamity. He succeeded
in sleeping six hours last night, for the
first tirno in weeks. He has been del
uged with telegrams and letters of sym
pathy from prominent people from all
party of the country.
Cleveland, 0., May 27.—1n the course
of a telegram in response to an offer of
space for a statement made by an after
noon paper Governor Foster said: "My
failure simply illustrates tha great folly
of permitting one's self to be in debt
beyond tbe reach of reasonably quick
assets for relief when the hour of difficult
borrowing comes. Business Is largely done
with borrowed money. Confidence in
the maintenance of sound financial con
ditions is essential to legitimate lend
ing. That confidence for seme time
has been shaken in the ability or capac
ity of the government to maintain pay
ments, is evident. The country pos
sesses enormous resources which are at
tbe command of the government, and it
should say and act in terms and ways
that will satisfy the country, without
ambiguity or uncertainty that gold pay
ments will be maintained."
Toledo, 0., May 27.—The People's
bank of North Baltimore closed doors
this morning. The announcement was
made that the cashier had gone to raise
money, and that tbe bank would
reopen. The closing was pre

But Be Think. It Healthy to Sleep la the '
Yesterday morning Henry Bentley
gave a $10,000 bond, and was released
from custody at the county jail.
The sureties on the bond were Wesley
Olark and E. P. Bryan of tbe firm of

charge of having poisoned his wife, Mrs.
Gregoria Reyes de Bentley.

Bentley returned to the county jail for
dinner, and in pursuance of tbe arrange

Mot Up In American Geography.
The congenital inability of the British
mind to master the trivial details of
American geography was never more
strikingly illustrated than in tho London
Lancet's recent report upon the Chicago
water supply. This waa a long and very
carefully prepared paper, whose main
conclusions are doubtless as accurate as
human skill can make them, yet in the
opening paragraph we are gravely in
formed that a portion of the sewage "is
pumped over a lock into a canal, which
carries it far south into tho Missouri and
eventually into the Mississippi river."
Evidently The Lanaet man ia blissfully
ignorant of the fact that the Missouri, a
river larger than a hundred of tbe
Thames, and draining a region upon
which all Britain would be but a patch,
comes from the other aide of the Missis
sippi.—New Yosk Recorder.
