Washington. March 17 — Commls-«oaer of PeniJons Ware, with the ap-proral of Secretary Hitchcock, haa promnlcated a most important pension ruling which prorides: "In the adjudication o^ pension claims under the act of June 27, 1800, It shall b» taken ai\d considered aj an eridenU&J fact, if the contrary does not appear, and if all other legal requirements are properly met, that when a claimant has paii^ed the age of 62 years he is disabled one-half in ability to fwrfiirm mani:al labor and la •ntitled to be rated at JG per month; after 05 years at Js per monih; aftei 6& years at $10 per luonih, and aftei 70 year» $12 per inunth. "Alhrnacce at higher rate, not eX-ceedine $12 per month, will continue to be made as heretofore, where disabilities i>ther than ane show a condition of inability to perform manual labor "This or 1« r shall take effect April 13. 1?04 Average Extent of Infirnnity.
