Thu statement then goes on to comment on the law ns follows: "Thus where n flnimnnt's disability is total, he Is iven under the statute a fixed amount, This was formot ly $S, and is now fixed at differ- t amounts for different casis, among others $1S) total, and the amount that, would bo 818 for a 'total disability' is suhJivided into factions—that is, less than total for tho lesser Jegreo of disability.

"Thus if ono man is found to bo very little disabled by tho medical board ho is given l-18th, or $1; or if ho is still more disabled, 2-lSth's, or J2; and if still more disabled, 3-18th's, or 4-18th'a, nnd so on. If a man, for instance, has lo.--t a portion of his finger, and is thus to an appreciable dogrco disabled, he may hnvo boon rated by sonio examining board at $4 for thnt, nnd *o in some other caso for seme slight disability.

"If now, hy an order of tho commissioner without regard to this medical examination, tho moji who has thus bjon receiving J'J is advanced to ?4 without the man who was moro disabled, and who has been rated at $4, being bimsolt advanced, it is obvious that injustice is done to tho higher graded man, bocnuso he is put upon a .par with a man evidently less disabled. And so, between soldier and soldier, thero is an unfair preference of the less injured.
