the general bills em bracing all conceivable forms of pension The Important of the gen Bisl as reaching the larger number of solalera and requiring a great expendi ture of is the service pension There are several bills introduced pertain ing to this one the most liberal one ot which proposes to place all old soldiers on tho pension roll at a minimum ot 8 per inonth with the addition of 1 cent per month for each days service over 800 this ponsion to bo paid to all old sol diers regardless at to whether they are now resolving pensions or not The friends of this bill bill estimate that it would cost por There are other service pension bills which place only those old soldiers on the roll who are receiving which would materially reduce tho The most moderate of these bilk would probably oost from to per for AU Disabled Another very Important bill to p aoe on tho roll all disabled soldiara who are not now drawing whlthout regard as to whether the disability was in curred in the sarvico or not and without re gard to tho pecuniary condition of thesol Any estimate us to the oost of this bill would be simply there being no data to judge from as to the number that would go on the rolls under this The next bill in importance Is what is known as the dependent which proposes to pen sion evury old soldier who is now disabled from tbe performance of labor for his sup This bill also proposes to place the Widows of deceased soldiers on the to Increase tha pansion granted to minor children from 88 to por and to contlnu9 the minors pension to chil dren who are over 16 years of age who are It also proposss to pension all de pendent fathers and mothers without regard to tho timo aud cause of the death of the It is estimated ttiat this bill would re quire an annual expenditure of about Increase In Any estimate of its is un reliable from the fact that thore Is no data from which the number that would go on the rolls could accurately There is no means of ascertaining tho num ber of widows at present so any esti mates would be Another bill of great importance and which has been vigor ously pressed upon the committee is ono pro viding for increasing the pensions of those who have lost an arm or leg from the pres ent rate to 50 per month and to pay toe difference between tbat rate and the rate the soldiers have received from the close of the war to tho pivsont As the number of thiKO in definitely an luMy uccurato estimate can be The amount rrquirei under this blllis 000 The bill which would require the larg est of and which would bocomo duo at once upon the passage of the is that rpeallng the limitation to the arrears Under the act of pensions wpro to be paid from the date of discharge iu all cases where applications were made prior to June and after that date pensions would only be pftid from tho date of the Bling of the Applications en Borne applications In roundnum bers have been filed aince June and fcbont cases have been On these if the limitation should be the arrears would become dne at onca There are over eases whleh have been filed since June now pend of which it is safe to say that at least 80 will be allowed in the near The commissioner of pensions estimates that it would require to pay akeady al loweuuud those are almost certain to be allowed upon applications filed ixpiratlon of the limitation the sum of 001 COO Of oeurso no estimate oan be mode M to the cost of paying arreawin cases that may be hereafter The faet that tho pension was to commence frotn tne date of discharge would be a strong Indnce ment to many who have not heretofore fltod applications to do ExPrlwnors of Bills ure also pending before the commit tee to Increase the pimBtao of thetotaUy deaf from to and those of the totaUy bltad from to The
