State Auditor Dixon finds that there
were 8128 new applications for pensions
Of these about 2300 passed. Of the new
applications 647 were by widows and
2581 by soldiers. During the year
widows and 166 soldiers are reported to
have died and thla number will reach
800. There were lut year 9000 pensions
The net gain this year will be about
2000. Auditor Dixon says this Is, In his
opinion, the high water mark, and that
henceforward the number will grow less
and less. The law provides that when
the pensions are probated the reduction
shall apply more particularly to the 4th
dus soldiers and to widows. Lut year
the 4th class and widows got $20 an
nually; this year it appears they will re
ceive $15.
