is backed by the state association of fire

MRS. JACKSONDECLINES CASH
Widow of Confederate Geaeral Will
Not Accept Pension from
RALEIGH, N. C, Jan. 26. The senate of
North Calorlnla received a letter today from
Mrs. Stonewall-Jackson declining to accept
a pension of 8100 a month provided under
a resolution Introduced a few days ago.
I most welcomlngly appreciate this patri
otic and loyal tribute to the name of my
hero husband, but I do not feel
that I would be justified In accepting It. I
am Informed that the laws of North Car
olina limit all pensions to those who have
not 8500 of personal property, and as I do
not come under this law, I respectfully re
quest that the bill be withdrawn.
Mrs. Jackson suggests that the sum pro
posed In her behalf be appropriated for the
relief of destitute widows of confederates
