Tin) pension bureau has notified a
great many pensioners throughout the
entire country, who are drawing pen
sions under tho act of June 27, 1890,
known as the independent pensions act,
that payment of their pensions will be
suspended for sixty days, during which
time they tiro required to show cause
why they should continue to draw pen
sions, this action is pursuant to (he re
cent ruling of Secretary Smith that a
pensioner under the act of J une 27, 1890,
drawing a pension for total disability,
must lie shown to bo physically Incapa-

I Enlisted men in the navy will now
have the privilege of purchasing their
discharge. Secretary Herbert has issued
an order establishing rules and regula
tions for the purchase of discharges au
thorised by the last naval appropriation
bill. No man is to be allowed to pur
chase his discharge while in debt to the
government, nor until he has served
three months. The price of discharge
during the fourth month of enlistment
will lie 25 per cent of the yearly pay of
the applicant; during the fifth month
80 per cent, and so on, increasing 5 per
cent per month until tho fourteenth
month, when the maximum price Ib
reached. During the fifteenth month
the price will lie 95 per cent of the max
imum price; in the sixteenth month 90
per cent, and so on, decreasing 6 tor cent
jwr month until the thirty-fourth month,
when the applicant may apply for his
discharge without payment. No man is
allowed to piircnase his discharge a sec
ond time, and those procuring discharges
by purchase forfeit all benefits due to
continuous service or honorable dis
charge. A discharge by purchase is not
an inherent right, but a privilege which
may be granted by the Navy Department,
The atmosphere altout the weather
bureau has cleared off very perceptibly
since the recent investigation, and affairs
are running along very smoothly, with
very little probability of any further
changes lieing made in the near future
in the bureuu. Secretary Morton said
that he wished to make it popular; in
short, he will insist upon a useful fore
casting, so the farmer, miner, shipper
ami commercial man can derive from it
the greatest possible good. In addition
to cutting oil a number of what he calls
''useless scientists" Secretary Morton
proposes to save money in the matter of
telegraph tolls. He also decided to dis
continue the river and Hood-room work
and at an early date place the river fore
cast in charge of olmervors located on
the principal rivers. As a result Carl
Bams, F. II. Higolow and Thomas E.
Russell, professors ot meteorology, will
lie dropped from the rolls this month
along with a number of clerks and other
employe. In his forthcoming report
Secretary Morton will make two Impor
tant recommendations. One relates to
the inilisiiriiiiinatedistrlbutlonol garden
seed anil the other to the duplication of
experiments by stations, now being done
by the department.
