Hearings Before Subcommittee of House Committee on Appropriations free pdf Excerpt from Hearings Before Subcommittee of House Committee on Appropriations: Consisting of Messrs. Hemenway, Van Voorhis, Burkett, Livingston, and Underwood, in Charge of Deficiency Approbations for 1904 and Prior Years on General Deficiency Bill 3. The increasing of pensions for total deafness. 4. The restoration of widows, dependent mothers, or dependent sisters who had married. 5. The increase of pensions to those who lost limbs in the service of the United States. 6. The increase of pensions to Mexican war survivors. 7. A very large number of special acts bearing high rates of pension. 8. In addition to the foregoing the Bureau is doing much more work than usual, and the result is a great many more rejections and a great many more admissions and certificates. This increased amount of work in the Bureau accomplishes the finishing of a large amount of delayed and accumulated business. The foregoing has necessitated for this current fiscal year at least two and a half millions more than the estimates, which were made long in advance of the fiscal year. When the estimates for the fiscal year were made it could not be presumed what legislation would take place, nor could the effect of recent and pending legislation he accurately determined, so therefore it was that on March 1 of the present fiscal year it was found, as above stated, necessary to call for two and a half millions more of money to meet the requirements of the year. Since that time Order No. 78 has been issued, which is the order establishing an age limit for pensions under the new law, and it is estimated that a million and a half additional will be required on that account for the current fiscal year. The estimate for the first two and a half millions had gone to the Treasury, but afterwards, since the issuance of said Order No. 78, the first estimate has been recalled and the second estimate made for four millions. There are still a large number of special pension bills pending, and it is believed that four millions is the smallest possible sum with which the Bureau can operate during the present fiscal year. The Chairman (resuming). You speak of the increase of pensions to Mexican war survivors. What is that increase, Mr. Commissioner? How are they pensioned now? Mr. Ware. They are pensioned now at $12 per month, where formerly they were pensioned at $8. That is the law of March 3, 1903, which provides that all Mexican war pensioners on the pension roll shall be increased from $8 to $12. The Chairman. Yes- that is Mexican war. That includes the Mexican widows, too, does it? Mr. Ware. No- that only includes the survivors of that war. That act went into effect about a year ago. The operation of it, however, in payments has been confined largely to this year. The number of persons coming under that law will average a hundred a month. I would put that at 1,200 for this year, at an increase of $48 each. The Chairman. Now, under existing conditions you think that for the balance of the fiscal year you will require $2,500,000 deficiency due to the reasons you assign in this letter? Mr. Ware. Yes, sir. And if you will pardon me, I would like to explain in relation to one of these classes, and that is the pensions granted, first, to soldiers who were in the Indian wars, and concerning which so many questions arise as to proof and matters of that kind. The payments in those cases are almost entirely in this year. The other matter I wish to mention is in connection with the joint resolution regarding Confederate soldiers and deserters. I held, on the reading of that law, that the law was not retroactive, and hence that new applications must be filed. That held up the operation of that law - I supposing that to be the correct ruling - until nearly the beginning of this fiscal year, when Mr. Campbell, the Assistant Secretory of the Interior, overruled m.
