THE COST OF PENSIONS.
Increase in Amount Last Year
Though Veteran* Are Fewer.
During the 60th Congress 6597
special pension arm were passed by
Congress, according to a statement
just compiled by Senator McCumber,
chairman of the Senate committee
on pensions. While many of these
acts were to increase pensions al
ready received by veterans, the re
sult of the legislation has been to
increase the annual payments by
Since 1861 there have been grant
ed by special acts 26,324 original
pensions, all of which have an an
nual face value of about $5,250,000.
As many of these pensioners were
formerly on the rolls at a lower rate
this figure does not represent the
total increase of the pension rolls
on account of Bpeclal legislation.
Since the close of the civil war
In 1865 there has been paid in pen
sions the sum of $3,654,653,365, and
the cost of maintaining pension
agencies and administration of the
pension bureau has been $112,872,477.
In 1902 there were 999,446 pension
ers on the roll at an expense of
$137,504,267. Since that time the
number of pensioners has decreased
to 951,687, but owing to the passage
of the McCumber age law and the
Sulloway widows' law, the appropria
tions to pay pensions Increased to
$153,093,062 for the last year. It
is estimated that 60,000 pensioners
died during the last year. It is es
timated that within 10 years the
pension roll will not carry over $75,
000,000 or $80,000,000 unless addition
al legislation should be enacted.?
