THE PENSION INVBSTTGATION-
The testimony in the Raum in
vestigation presents some curious
and suggestive facts as to the man
ner in which the business of the
pension office is conducted. Gen
erally speaking, the claims seem to
be adjusted as carefully and expe
ditiously as the circumstances will
permit; but there is a great deal of
delay, nevertheless, and many de
vices are resorted to by interested
parties for the purpose of haoten
ing the proceedings. Every con
gressman has hundreds of such
claims to look after for his con
stituents, and millions of dollars
are annually paid to attorneys for
like services. It seems to be prac
ically impossible to get a claim
passed upon in a reasonable time
unless it is urged by some outside
influence. This does not necessar
ily imply that there is intentional
discrimination in favor of any par
ticular class of claimants, but it
does signify, that discrimination
ensues by reason of such pressure.
A skillful attorney or a zealous
congressman can cause final action
to be taken in many cases before
other cases of equal merit have
passed the preliminary stages. It
is a matter of tact and perseverance.
The officials of the pension office
are not consciously partial, per
haps, but partiality is shown all the
same, and it affords .cause of criti
cism and complaint. '
There should be a system of ad
justing pension plaims undec which
even the appearance of favoritism
would be impossible. The present
force of the pension office is not
large enough to insure rapid inves
tigation and settlement, but it can
be increased. Such claims are of a
peculiarly sacred and urgent char
acter. The claimants are poor for
the most part, and they need the
money to meet ordinary living ex
penses. In a majarity of the cases
the facts are not at all doubtful or
complicated. They can be adjusted
without the interposition of attorn
eys, and it is wrong to require the
vetrans pay for legal aid in the mat
ter. The government should bear
all the cost of preparing evidence
and putting claims in shape to be
definitely passed upon. It is due to
the penioners that they be not com
pelled to discount their pension in
order to secure the money as eoon
as it should be given them. One of
the grave faults of the present sys
tem is that the most deserving ap
plicants are often neglected because
they are the least able to employ
outside help. The business ought to
be so transacted that all claims shall
stand upon an equal footing, and be
disposed of in regular order. It is
clear that more or less distinction is
bow made, and there is no good rea
son why it should be continued. If
the existing methods are not equal
to the work 01 correction, then new
ones should be adopted, and con
gress should authorize such addi
tional expenditure as may be neces
sary for the purpase. Globe Demo

the old commander that his integri

a great comfort to him. . It is very

it to be most admirable. . I have
