According to advance reports from
Washington the annual report of the
commissioner of pensions will show
that there were over 13,000 more
pensioners on the roll at the close of
the last fiscal year than there were
at the end of that preceding. The
increase is understood to be owing to
the fact that the commissioner took
up and disposed of a number of old
claims for arrears of pensions which
he found on tile when he took charge
of the office. Others of those claims
remain to be passed upon, and it is
intimated that the number likely to
be allowed will at least meet the re
ductions on the rolls which may be
occasioned by death during the year.
The commissioner expects, however,
that after the year 1898 the number
will begin to drop, and that once it
does, it will decline rapidly.
