Wallace, who owns five acres near the proposed peat house site, and Uingston Bacon, who owns property In the neighborhood, have been consulted by their neighbors nbout an Injunction. Mr. Wallace said today that ha would not say whether he would go Into court to prevent the building ol the pesthouse until he had made further Investigation as to the exact location of the city's land. "But we don't want pest house near our property, he said. "It touU damage the sale of hie ground because nobody would want to live near a pest house." A few years ago the city made arrangements to build a pet hnu.

000.000. Is to be increased. Pending legislation which is practically sure of passing through both houses will nud to tha roll at least 200.000 names, not counting pensioners of the late Amcrlcan HIepano war and of the cor.que: of the Philippines, nni will swell the enormous yearly totol paid for pensions at least $25,000,000. Senator Cullom has rtrrseatcd oiie bill which, If enacted, wTalone add 117 217 names to tbe roll and increase the' first year's cost at least $20,000,000. The Cullom bill seeks to give all deserters from the union army and there were 117,247 or them a pensionable status so that they may be placed ca the pension list.

Representative Lent! of Ohio haa a bill that Is even more startling In ii comprehensive sweep than the measure advocated by Senator Cullom. He seeks to give a per diem pension to all officers and men of the union army during the civil war. Expert statisticians have figured that the Lenti bill. If It should pass, would add at least 800.000 names to the roll and Increase the cost of pensions by $75,000,000 a year. It is hardly probable that this measure will pass.

It Is a sample, however, of the bills Intended as treasury raid And now toxe3 the senate cnramitf on pensions. Senator Gallinger of New Hampshire. wh fho prcpasitton to create a non partisan commission Jo re' vl and eodifv the penalon.laws. with a view to making them less difficult and free from existing perplexities. This non partisan commission, appointed, will proceed to give a pensionable status to many' who are not now entitled to a pension.

Thus far thousands of private pension hills have been introduced. General legislation Is also proposed which will swell the rolL The flood tide of the army pensioners of tbe civil war has not yet been reached.
