The report of the commissioner of
pensions for the fiscal year ended June
30, 1883, shows that there were 303,658
pensioners on the roll at the end of the
fiscal year. During the year the names
of seventy-six whose pensions had been
accepted previously were ro3tored to
the roll, making 38,958 pensions added
during the year, an excess of 10045
over the preceding y ear. The average
annual value of 'each pension is $406,
the aggregate aunual value of all pen
sions is $32,345,192, an increase of 2,
904..090. The total amount paid for
pensions is $000,040,000
Attention is called to the fidelity and
ability with which the unprecedented
disbursements of the bureau have been
made by agents for the payment of
pensioners. An average of 3,357,337
naving been disbursed from each of
the eighteen agencies at an annual ex
pense of $16,000, and without the loss
of a dollar to the government or a
complaint of delay from the benfici-
aries. Of the special examination sys
tem, the commissioner speaks in com
mendatory terms, aid says he will be
disappointed if the saving to the gov
ernment effected by this decision will
not be suffiGient to defray
the cost of
its maintenance. He does not think it
incumbent upon the government to be
at any further expense in endeavoring
toselltotho Indians pension claims,
when the resulfof the special commis
sioner sent out to'th'e Indian Territory-
are considered."-. w- .-
