WARE'S FIRST YEAR. Pension Commissioner Ware ing-* the first year of his work which has just been completed has succeeded in winning praise from the Natipnal Tribune, the organ of the old soldier, published at Washington. The Tribune l^ys: Commissioner Ware closes his first year of administration of the pension bureau with the most creditable showing of 132,829 claims allowed, or 13.005 more than last year and a far greater number of ^lowances'than any year in the past ten years. This has Involved incomparably greater work than has been done ini the bureau since Geniwal Raum's administration, because it has .required much harder labor in examination. It was comparatively plain-sailing under Genenil Raum's admiiiistra- tlon, but a number of complicated 'cases were left over, and these involved; patient and continued eramina- tion. "The number of rejections was 113,720, or^about 6,000 less than under the last year of Evans. These rejections were mainly confined to Ihose of applications for increases. In spite of the great advance In the number of al lowancea. the total of the pension roll la ifttiir under the million mark, owing to the great increase In mortality. Tbo loss to the pbiulon roll dnrlng the yeat win prdbably come close to 40,000. Commissiloner Ware has succeeded in Skiing more good work out of the clerical force of the pension; bureau than liny ipfhlB.predecessors. And this wftlibiatlomwork. but by proper man- ent and the exercise of Tmusdal executive ability^" Som^ idea of the diffionlties that would have attended the equitable dis- triibution of a direct appropriation by the Legislature to the fiood sufferers may be gained by occasional reports that have come in from Wyandotte County. From the first a book-keeper has been employed at $15 a week to keep the accounts of the committee. He has nothing else whatever to do. In the beginning the gj^thering of information was done in/a hap-hazard ipanner, and it ^ proved very unsatisfactory. Men were then hired at $2 a day to collect the data, and an average of twenty men have been kept at work on this task ever since, making an expenditure of $40 a day for work along this line. It has been found necessary wherever tlh relief work was undertaken on a large scale t» employ men to do it and to get the right kind df men, and pay them sufficiently to make their work of value. And with all this the work of distributing relief has been so slow and unsatisfactorj' that the people are grumbling mightily. The refusal of the Legislature to mak3 an appropriation created a good deal of a storm, but it was as a balmy zephyr to a cyclone compared with what would be transpiring about now if the appropriation had been made. drowned by the flood have but recently been taken out of the Neosho river at Council Grove.
