TO FUND PENSIONS
Scheme of a Connecticut Manu
facturer to Pay Off Old
Soldiers.
Would Give All YVJjp Desire It
ThCir Life Expectancy
in Cash.
Amount to Be Computed From In
surance Tables—Advantages
of the Plan.
NEW YORK, DOC. 23. W. F. Rock
well, a prominent manufacturer of Mer
iden, Conu., lias in view the presenta
tion of a bill in congress through the
pension committee, looking toward the
finding of the pension appropriations.
This bill, according to Mr. Rockwell,
promises to be of great benefit, not only
to the government in the saving of
many millions of dollars, but to the
vast army of pensioners also. Mr. Rock
Well has talked about his plan to Presi
#bnt McKinley, Secretary Bliss, mem
bers of the ways and means committee
a&d to pension officials, all of whom, he
says, think well of it, but they have
not decided yet how it would be it
received by the country.
Pensioners who have been approached
SMr.
Rockwell on the subject also
ink well of the idea and are inclined
to view it in a favorable light. He has
00n9ulted also, numerous bankers and
Commercial men, who approve the
scheme and admit its feasibility, belief
tag it to be entirely practical.
Give Tliem Their Expectancy.
"It has long been the idea of con
gress," said Mr. Rockwell, in speaking
of his plan, "that pensioners are de
pendent, whereas, as a matter of fact,
the great bulk of them are independent.
Thousands of them are owners of farms
in the West, which are mortgaged, the
mortgages bearing interest anywhere
from 8 to
12
per cent. My idea is to
issue negotiable bonds to the pension
ers, or to pay them the cash at their
option, to cover the amount they would
receive from the government, based on
life insurance expectancy. This would
enable them to pay off these mortgages,
thus saving to them the differences be
tween the lowest rate of interest in any
state, 6 per cent, and the interest on
the bonds,
2}a
per cent.
"This would relieve them from their
present entanglements. There are, in
round numbers, about 950,000 persons
on the pension rolls, and to those who
Me not owners of farms the payment of
the entire amount, which, according to
my table would be due them, would
enable many of them to start in busi
ness, and this in itself would put in
circulation a large amount of money
that wouid inure to the benefit not only
of the community in which tliey reside
but to the country.
"It would also be a great saving to
the government in the matter of sala
ries and expense,while the only expense
the government would incur would be
the issuing of the bonds. It would
also do away with pension attorneys,
Who receive from pensioners a good
share of the money paid out for them."
Kabbit* Responsible ^or Diphtheria.
Sioux CITY, la., Dec. 23.—Rabbits
are spreading diphtheria throughout
the central part of this state. Such, at
least, is the opinion of physicians.
Some time ago rabbits began dying of
a disease doctors pronounced almost
identical with diphtheria in the human
family. Soon after the epidemic com
menced among the rabbits diphtheria
began to be noticed among the families
in the locality. The conclusion was
reached that the germs were eonveyed
by the animals.
Game Liw Point Decided.
ST. CLOUD, Minn., Dec. 23.—Judge
Searie has sustained the demurrer in
terposed by Deputy Game Warden
Stephens in the suit brought by Julia
Selkirk of Detroit. The point was made
by the plaintiff that the game seized
wa:i killed by Indians on the White
Earth reservation. Judge Searie holds
that the Indians are amenable to the
state game laws, and especially so when
the game is designed lor shipment oat
side the state.

CREATED A SfeNSATlOlt.
Publication of a Threat of Wolcott to Be
lign Stirs Up Washington Politicians.
NEW YORK, Dec. 23.—The World
prints the following special dispatch
from Washington.
The publication in The World of Sen
ator Wolcott's threat to resign from the
United States senate created a sensa
tion here in political circles. While
many believe that his indignation may
sufficiently cool to prevent the actual
relinquishment of his seat all agree
that h'.s return to the advocacy of free
and uulimited silver coinage is certain.
The position in which Senator Wol
cott is placed is well understood by all
those who realize the peculiar situation
which has developed with respect to
the administration and monetary com
mission of which the Colorado senator
is chairnuu.
Some One Is at Variance.
Either President McKinley and Sec
retary Gage is at variance or Senator
Wolcott and his symatli.zers are utterly
deceived as to the president's attitude.
Mr. Woicott lius since his return from
Europe talked long and earnestly with
the president, and yet he defends the
president wnile taking a position of
open antagonism to Secretary Gage
The assertion is made by Mr. Wolcott's
sympathizers that Secretary Gage mis
represents the administration, and that
if it were not for the political disturb
ance it would cause, Mr. Gage might
retire from the cabihet.
This assertion, which is now made
privately, is likely to be made publicly
before long. If this is done the issue
will be raised and the public will know
the facts.
The result will probably be that Mr.
Wolcott will find that he has misunder
stood the position of the president and
will then dramatically announce his in
dignation at the administration. The
president can hardly be in sympathy
with both Secretary Gage and Mr.
Wolcott as Gage stands simply for gold
and Wolcott for silver alone.
As things are now tending the presi
dent will probably have to break with
one or the other of them and unless he
is misunderstood by the leaders of his
party aud persons closest to him, the
break will not be with the secretary of
the
treasnvv
Spanish figures of Insurgent Losaei.
HAVANA, Dec. »'8. —It is announced
from the palace that during the past 10
days the insurgents have lost 303 men
killed, aud that, in addition, the Span
ish troops have captured 17 prisoners
and 69 armed insurgents have surreu
dered. ___

WINNIPEG, Dec. 23.—Alderman A. J.

Moonlight on the
sea. There are pic
tures and dreams
and castles in the
air for the woman
who sits and gazes
out over it. Pic
tures of a happy
home, dreams of a
manly husband,
beautiful castles to be built by the loving
hands of mutual helpfulness and filled
with healthy, happy children.
Almost without exception these dreams
might become realities if mothers would
only teach their daughters the most com
mon sense facts about their own physical
make-up, and advise them how to protect
themselves from the perils of the three
critical periods of their lives—puberty or
maturity, motherhood and the "turn of
life." Women at these times suffer from
irregularities and weaknesses which, if
neglected, will develop into dangerous dis
eases and make their whole lives wretched.
The delicate organs that make wifehood
and motherhood possible, cannot be neg
lected with impunity. If they are neglect
ed the result is unhappy wifehood, and
motherhood will be a menace of death.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is an un
failing specific for alt diseases of these
organs. It restores theft to perfect health.
It promotes regularity cf their special func
tions. It fits for wifehood and mother
hood. It tones, invigorates and builds up
the nerves that have been shattered by
pain and suffering.
For years my wife suffered from what the
doctors called prolapsus of the uterus," writes
A!r. Harry Chant, of 211 Haskell Street, Dallas,
Texas. She was nervous, had cold hands and
feet, palpitation, headache, backache, constipa
tion, a disagreeable drain, bearing-down pains
and no appetite. She got so weak she could not
get around. I am only a laborer, and was always
in debt to the doctors, and all for nogood, as none
of them did her any good. She began taking
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and it seemed
to work like a charm. She has taken about
thirteen bottles and is to-day as stout and
healthy as any woman in the United States."
