people, for It will be one of the prettiest
shows ever staged.

Special Pension ' Examiner Foster Is
telling a story "just to show that It la
not the province of special pension ex
aminers to hunt down men and deprive
them of their pensions through some tech'
nlcal violation of the multiplicity of pen'
Ion laws, but rather to demonstrate that
the average pension examiner would sooner
help a worthy soldier get a pension, than
to deprive htra of It" Here Is his nar
"Dennis Hunt enlisted early during ths
civil war In a New Tork regiment and
served for more than three years. He
was severely wounded at the battle of
Antletam and waa sent home en stele fur
lough. His furlough was Indefinite, but
he recovered from his wound sooner than
he expected. He went back to his regi
ment and was again wounded at Gettys
burg and was given another sick furlough
after being discharged from the hospital.
"After several montha he recovered from
his wound and, supposing that his sick
furlough waa equivalent to a discharge, he
failed to return to his original command.
He waa a little doubtful about the legttt
maoy of his discharge, and fearing that he
might be classed aa a deserter, hesitated
about going back, aa about that time the
government was shooting an occasional
deserter, eo he determined to re-en II at
urder another name in a Massachusetts
"He served with the Massachusetts regi
ment until the last year of the war and
waa again wounded In front of Petersburg
and was sent home to die. But he didn't
die. He reported to his Massachusetts
command Just before the grand review In
Washington and was mustered out with
, "Several montha after the close of the
war he applied for a pension. It was held
up for various reasons, particularly from
the fact that he claimed three separate
wounds, but not all -of them from his last
"Hunt positively Insisted that he had no
other service except In the Massachusetts
regiment, but was disinclined to explain
the 'discrepancy of the two other wounds
which had been perfectly established by
his repeated physical examinations before
the medical examining board. The two old
wounds Indicated that they had been re
celved two and three years previously. But
Hunt was obdurate and would not give
away hia earlier enlistments.
"Finally a special examiner was sent to
his old home In Brooklyn and after mak
ing some Inquiries among friends and rel
Uvea the examiner discovered that Hunt
had served In a New Tork regiment for
three or more years before enlisting in
the Massachusetts regiment, ,and was in
some of the hottest battles of W1 and 1863,
but under anothsr name.
'Further inquiry ahowed that he was car
ried on the rolls of the New York regiment
aa a deserter. His record as a soldier was,
however, first clssa, and he was again in
veatlgated by a apeclal examiner, who la
now stationed In Omaha, and Hunt finally
admitted that he had served In the New
York regiment. He denied any Intention
of deserting, but held that as the gov
ernment wss making It pretty hot for men
charged with desertion, he concluded to
change his name and enlist in another
regiment where he would not be known.
"The examiner saw trie real merit In the
case and Instead of seeking to show the
man up as a premeditated desarter, sent
In the full story of the case to the pension
department. Every detail of Hunt's story
was corroborated, and the penaion depart
ment of Its own volition removed the
charge of desertion from Hunt's name and
awarded him a pension from the date of
hia first wound at Antletam In September,
13. He waa granted arrearages from that
date and only a few weeks ago, here In
Nebraska, he received from the peneion
department a check for over 1X000 arrear
ages and a notification that he had been
placed permaaently on the pension roll."

Waiters Hold Up
.'Field Club at the
Squeeze Extra Dollar Per Man, Find
ing; They Have Club by
Slstx colored waiters successfully worked
the Field club for 180 on the oocaslon of
the dinner to the Nebraska Bankers' as
sociation. As a result thsre are some miss
Ins; colored faces at the club.
Just before the dinner was to be served
to the asHembled and hungry visitors it
became known that a "strike" was on.
Some of the "extra help' employed con
ceived the bright idea that they had the
club by the short hair, as it were. The
wallers were to receive $2.10 for the even
ing's work and the sum demanded waa
$3.10. $1 more.
The head waiter and the steward held a
hurried conference and then put the mat
ter up to Acting President Sherradeo and
the house committee.
"Nothing to do but submit to the hold
up." was the verdict. But the head
waiter waa told to discharge the ringleaders
the next day.
"We ought to have been prepared for
a trick of thla kind," said President Sher-
raden. "They' tried the same game last
year at the banquet for the National Live
Stock . exchange. If we had had a few
more club members on hand we would have
told the whole crew to chase Itself and
waited on the tables ourselves. When
William Hughes, secretary of the Bankers'
assoAatlon heard later of the 'hold-up,' he
aald that if he had known of It he could
have secured enough young bankers to
have acted as waiters."
