lively debate in tho senate yester day Gorman in a speech in opposition to the conference report on the dependent pen aion bill said lie had heretofore voted for the most liberal appropriations in this line but he believed there must bs a limit Since 1881 there had been paid in pensions under proper administration to provide amply and well for ail who had served coun try The pension expenditures for the fis cal year ending June 30 1890 were 000000 without counting the expenses of the pension bureau to 1801 the expendi ture under existing law would be not less than 4125000000 In 1892 Appruhomls a Bankrupt Treasury He had had an estimate the expen diture under the pending bill made and if the additions to the pension roll were to be threefourths of the survivors the cost would be 165848050 under that section of the bill The estimata for dependent wid ows was for minor children H8200 and for dependent parents 000 Add these increases to the 8123000000 and it would be seen that In fact the treas ury was bankrupted Gorman said in re ply to a question by Bluir that lie did not doubt the ability of the government to re plenish the treasury but prudence he thought would require that pension legis lation should not run into such extrava gance LIS to Increase the taxes of an over burdened people Tlno Controverted Davis chairman of the pension commit tee denied the correctness of Germans figures He said the amount of the in crease to enlisted men would be 000 ttie amount to widows 87205000 and the total amount tnchiding pensions to children of surviving Nothing was extravagant that was right Gorman In the course of further remarks predicted a deficit of if40000000 in 1S02 if this bill did not become a lawand of 000000 if It was enacted Xngulls for Pensions Unlimited Ingalls spoke of the sacred obligation of the government and referred contemptu ously to frugal patriots parsimonious defenders of tho treasury He said he waa In favor of removing the limitation in the act granting ttrrears of pensions He did not care whethur It cost 500OOtiOOQ or il000000000 He believed that every surviving Union soldier ought to be put on the pension roll for service Ho be lieved that before the lust Union pension er disappeared from the rolls there would have been no less than paid out for pensions and even then an entire ly inadequate equivaleut would have been rendered for the services performed Indiana Is Not Complniiiiiig Vest in the course of his remarks charged that the pensionroll in Indiana had bseu swelled because that was a piv otal state
