    Jenks and the Soldiers.
How He Pleaded the Cause of the
Pensioners when it Was Sought
to Make Them a Body •
of Mendicants.
To the Boys'in Blue on the Fioor
of Congress that Should Never
be Forgotten by Them.
In 1876 the Honorable George A.
Jenks then a member of Congress, in
troduced a bill to transfer the Pension
Bureau of the United States from the
Interior Department to the War De
partment. The matter being under
discussion Congressman Kasson, of
lowa, was quoted as having made the
declaration that pensions were in the
nature of a government gratuity and
were not in the nature of a contract be
tween the government and the soldiers
that the government had the right at
any time to shut off all pensions and
granted them only as a mere gratuity
and not as a matter of obligation. The
whole matter of the granting of pen
sions it was claimed by Mr. Kasson
was discretionary with the government
both as to the amount of the pension
and the time of its continuance.
Congressman Townsend, of New
York, argued in a like strain to which
Mr. Jenks replied as follows:—"From
these extracts it will be seen that gen
tlemen of experience, learned in the'
law, and for whom personally I have
the highest respect, have asserted that
an invalid pension is not a debt; that it
may be granted or withheld at the
pleasure of the Government; that there
is no obligation to pay it; that it is
simply a gratuity. Now, if it be a
gratuity, we may at any moment cut
off these pensions; we may refuse to
pay them from any moment that it
may occur to the legislative branch of
the Government that it is for the in
terest of the Government so to do. If
that be so it is a most fatal truth for
these pensioners who have been de
prived of their limbs in the cause of
their country.
"Now, in order to refute what seems
to me to be a most flagrant fallacy, 1
propose to discuss the question at this
time, because, first, I think the Pen
sion Bureau, which we seek to trans
fer, has been laboring under the same
fallacy, has been of the opinion that
they may grant or refuse a pension as
they see proper, that they may expedite
or delay it as to them may seem con
venient, that they may grant it to a
political friend or deny it to a political
opponent as may seem best for party
purposes. It is to lefute this view,and
that the people may comprehend what
is a right and what is a gift, that I
propose now to discuss this as the first
; question in this bill. A contract is an
agreement for a sufficient consider
ation to do or not to do some given
thing. Now if the Government, before
the soldier entered the army, told that
soldier that if he should enter and be-
come disabled he should be paid a
pension, that would be a contract, if
the soldier entered the army and was
disabled." (Here Mr. Jenks quoted
the resolution of the Continental Con
gress in 1776, the act of Aprl 30,
1790, the act of January n, 1812, and
the act of July 14, 1862 all to the
effect that it was the rule of the Gov-
local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rum
bling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hear
ing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but'an i. flamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by
Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu
lars; free.

ernment to consider an invalid soldier
as entitled to a pension as a matter of
right based upon the promise of the
lawmaking power.)
Mr. Hewitt, of Alabama, interrupt
ing Mr. Jenks at this point, said: "If
the gentlnman will allow me, 1 would
remind him that in the proclamation
of President Lincoln, issued in 1861,
calling for volunteers, a promise was
made that such as might be wounded
or should contract disease in the war
should have a pension; and congress
afterwards ratified that promise." To
this Mr. Jenks replied as follows: "The
facts are as the honorable gentleman
from Alabama (Mr. Hewitt) states
them. The persion law of 1862 was
not passed before the first soldier went
into the army; yet prior to that time
the soldiers had the word of a man
they had reason to trust that if they
should go into the service they should
be provided for. Shall that word be
disgraced here on the floor of this
Congress? Shall we disregard that
contract in view of which they went
into the army? They obeyed the call
of their country; and in that view they
did only their duty, it is true, as the
honorable gentleman from Illinois (Mr.
Hurlbut) has said; but it was a duty
the performance of which was danger
ous, and it was performed under the
promise that this provision would be
made. Dare we repudiate that prom
ise and say that it is not a contract?
Shali we say to a man who asks for a
pension, 'You are the acceptor of a
gratuity; you are a medicant; we can
grant jou this or refuse it at our op
tion, and no one can charge us with
injustice?' IN THE NAME OF THE PEN
The speech from which the above
extracts have been taken may be
found in full in the "Congressional
Record" of 1876, in part 2 of volume
4, pages 1739 to 1744. No man can
read the remarks of Mr. Jenks on that
occasion without feeling a thrill of
pride that Pennsylvania had a soldier's
champ : on on the floor of congress in
the person of George A. Jenks who
stood for the pensioner's rights, insist
ing that they were not pauper mendi
cants asking alms but worthy veterans
demanding their just rights under the
sacred promise of that Government
for the perpetuation of which they had
volunteered to sacrifice health, limb
and life if need be.
He is the same George A. Jenks
now he was in 1876, always for the
right and never upholding the wrong.
The flag and the veteran are to him
sacred; they are not the playthings of
political fortune nor are they articles
of merchandise to be trafficked to the
highest bidder.
Safety for Wheelmen.
A remarkable novelty intended to
increase the safety of wheelmen has
been introduced by a Berlin firm. It
consists of a luminous disk placed in
a nickel frame to be fastened in the
rear of the wheel, say back of the sad
dle, to prevent collisions with another
bicycle. The disks are covered with
a chemical preparation giving in the
dark a light similar to that of a glow
worm, but much stronger. The price
is rather small (about 60 cents), and
the little article will, therefore, be very
popular. The same firm is also in
troducing house numbers to be fasten
ed to the wall or gate of a house.
During the day the numbers appear
of a yellowish white, but at night they
shine out, so that the number is easily
found even in a dark night.

Dr. Agnew's Liver Pills will crowd out

In closing the meeting Chairman
Garman said that so large at meeting
of representative Democrats as this

party was thoroughly united, but also
that Its members felt certain of victory.
He urged that every county chairman
should divide all the Democrats into
blocks—"blocks of five" would do—and
have a trustworthy man to bring each
block to the polls. By this means the
Democrats could sweep the state with
out a single Republican vote. Mr.
Garman said he had lmpresed upon the

of having every Democratic voter call

to arrest. If possible, the leaders In

The mob consisted of about five
hundred persons, including a number
of women. The agents of the league
were hit many times by stones, badly

appealed to to act In the case.

A NewlTypa of Engine-
The Pennsylvania railroad is con
templating the construction of a new
type of engine. The cab will be over
the front end of the boiler, behind the
smokestack, and the fireman will work
at the fire box tenjor fifteen feet behind
the engineer. The object of this ar
rangement is to obtain a larger grate
area in passenger locomotives. The cab
being in front will allow the engineer an
unobstructed view of the tracks and sig
nals. The drivers will be seven feet in
diameter. The first one will likely be
built in the Altoona shops before the
close of the year.
