quite a diplay of oratory in the house yes terday over the pension question that beiug tho first subject taken up on five private bills which had como over from lat week In speaking on one of these bills Stone of Mis souri declared that no people had been so despoiled and burdened under the name of patriotism and under the guise of pension laws as had tho people of tlio United States Ho denounced tho demands of the Grand Army of the Republic and asserted that the presidency was put up und sold to the high est bidder A Eulogy of Cle volancl Thatik God there was one grand man who had declined to bo n party to such a sale Though hu had fallen lia had fallen bearing the reputation of wiiiu and incorruptible statesmanship and enjoying tho respect of ovory honest citizen Applause on Demo cratic side Benjamin Harrison had at tained his otlicu by cash raised by Uana nuiker and disbursed by Dudley He Stone believed that tho government had been gen erous enough to the soldiers A Platform for HtniHolf Speaking for himself and speaking ha knew igninst tlio judgment of his party ho deohuvd that ho had gone as far in the direction of pensions as ho intend ed to go and he represented one of tho larg est oxUnion soldier districts in the country Hu fuvurud a liberal system of pension laws but lij entered his earnest protest against indefensible extravagance in public expend iture He favored tho granting of liberal pensions to fcruo and bravo soldiers but he was opposed to granting pensions to unde serving soldiers or to bounty jumpers Stones KnoivJedgo Impeached fjtuiii Illinois in favoring the bills re ferred to tho remark made by Stone that a contract existed between ths governmen and the soldier and said that a man wh would declare that was as ignorant of th relations between thy government and th soldier as u Hottentot Tho Democrats o Illinois did not endorse the words of th gentleman from Missouri but believed as h Zntiel lid that the government had no done justice to tha men who had defended i in its hour of peril When Cost Was Counted Chipman of Michigan criticised und do nounctd the speech made by the goutlemm from Missouri it was not tho time to tal of tho iost of pensions lit well remem bered the day whtm tho cost was not counted when tho government was prodigal of mouej und lavish ot blood when tho motives whic brought men under tho Hag were ncitscnnnei and analyzed when the man who enlistei was the hero of the hour Then no man was mean enough to suggest that men wont out to risk their lives for the paltry pay ot a month The man who would make such suggestion would have been whipped and scourged and looked upon as a rebel Ho could not have lived in decent society Not the Time to Call u Unit The gentleman from Missouri Stone cried a halt but the timu for u halt had uoi como and would not come until reasonable provision was made for the needs of every soldier of the country Tho country needed a service pension it needed an increased pension for the deaf and dumb it nooded a pension for widows and it needed a law es tablishing a rule of testimony in pension coses whereby tho oath of a private soldier would receive as much credence as that ot an officer Tho pension system must con tinue untij the last soldier who served tho country in tho war was dead and gathered to his fathers Drue Store REAL ESTATE mMe
