On more than onsoooasion here-
tofore The Post has referred to the
almost insupportable burden of
pensions, which yepnblioan party
politice and a certain degree of
democratic cowardice have piled
upon the American people. It is
gratifying to see one Kastern pa-
per, the New York Sun, ie exposing
this giant fraud in a manner that
muet attract general attention.
Thirty-two years after the war
we are paying $140,000,000 per
annum in pensions, while we have
a National deficit in our for noes
of $30,000,000. To reduoe this psn-
sion burden by even the exceee
over a hundred millions would
give us a surplus.
Doee any honest congressman
believe that this can not be done
and without injuetioe to the honest
Why, then, ie the pruning knife
not applied to thie branch of our
public service? Why should this
great and, on nearly all sidee con-
feased, fraud be permitted to em-
barraes the government and rob
the public? What but the most
oontemptible cowardice on the part
of the people'a representatives

A Gkoroia editor recently peo-
nad the foljowing obituary notice
of a man Vy the name of Jamea
Brown: "Poor Jim Brown slung
his earthly garmenta on a limb
and awam the river yeeterday. He
didn't atand back because the
water waa cold, but plunged right
in, roae smiling and struck out for
the other shore, where the angele
were waiting for him with a finer
rait than he ever wore in hie life.
Jim was a poor man but he had

A voukg lady, being aaked to

with unnecessary emphasis and

The Sun calls attention to the
fact that the largeet number of
Union soldiers actually in arms at
any one time during the war is leee
by nearly a quarter of a million
than the present number of pen-
sionen. After thirty-two years
the armv of pensioners is largsr
bv about 36 per cent than the
fighting army ever was. In 1872,
a quarter of a century ago, Gene-
ral Garfield said: "We may rea-
jtonebly expect that the expendi-
tures for pensions will hereafter
dccrt.eae steadily, unices our leg-
islation should be unwarrantably
At that time the annual expeudi-
turee on pensions were less than
Now they are $140,000,000!
Haa our legislature not been
" unwenantably extravagant?''
And are not democratic repreaen-
tativee from the South largely re-
sponsible for thie condition of af-
fairs? Is it not arrant political
cowardice that hea rendered such
a raid upon the Federal treasury
Since the civil war we have paid
over $2,000,000,000 for papelona
and are paying annually now more
then the penaion lista of England
and frece amount U>, after all
their wara. The pensionera have
oost us almost aa mnoh as the
war. Thia ia an outrage, pure
and simple, and the public must
awake to it. We can not go on at
this rate without benkrupting our-
selvee, and it is the duty of South-
ern repreeentativee to throw them-
eelvee in the way of theae ruinous
appropriations. Country first and
political success afterwards, should
be the guiding policy. It ia not
surprising that war tariffs have be-
come necessary when we maintain
euch iniquitous impoeitiona ae the
present penaion liat. The finan-
cial problema of the government
oould be quickly solved by an
