New Pension Blanks
■ Bird McGuire Scorcs Another
Victory—Blanks Sent Out
to Old Soldiers
Congressman McGuire has scored
again for the old soldiers.
All of the civil war veterans here
have received the new pension
law application blanks from Con-
gressman Bird McGuire of Oklahoma
and blanks are now being (illed out
to be sent to the department. Mc-
Guire was the first man in congress
to get the blanl's out to lii^constitu-
ents. Before the bill wis signed
he was getting letters ready to go to
the veterans in the district explain-
ing the law, and arranged for the
printing of blanks. When but few
members of congress had received
any blanks from the department, he
had over 2,000 on their way to the
veterans in his district. Many mem-
bers wrote the soldiers in their (lis
tricts saying they would send blanks
to those who desired them, but Mc-
Guire has scored a hit with the vet-
ans by sending the blanks so there
would be no delay.
The occasion for haste in the mat-
ter is the fact that the increased pen-
sion to the soldier begins from date
of filing application at the depart-
ment. Each day's delay in getting
J the application on file probably
means a loss of $500 to the veterans
I of the first district.
After granting £30.00 per month
| to all soldiers wounded in battle or
'disabled by disease contracted in
i line of duty and incapacitated for
manual labor as a result thereof,
the bill combines age with ser-
vice in the allowance of pensions
from the dat~ of application there-
for as follows:
62 66 70 75
Ninety days 13.00 15.00 18.00 21.00
Six months 13.50 15.50 19.00 22.00
One year 14.00 16.00 20.00 24.00
1 VA years 14.50 16.50 21.50 27.00
Two years 15.00 17.00 23.00 30.00
' 2)4 years 15.00 18.00 24.00
Three years 16.00 19.00 25.00
The terrible rain and hailstorm
that swept over southern Kansas
last Friday afternoon and evening
tied up traffic on the Rock Island
| to a great extent along the main
I One thousand feet of track, it was
estimated, was washed out by a
I cloud burst that occurred within
about one mile of Peck, Kansas.
A hole from ten to fifteen feet in
depth and about sixty-five feet long
was washed out under the track.
The location of the washout v/as on
a hillside where the ground was
1 practically fiat, so far as water,
courses were concerned. Water
was backed up over the track for
three quarters of a mile.
Train No. 31 due here at 5:58 a.
m. and train No. 23 due at 11:31
| a. in. were annulled for the day. The
first regular train from the north
Saturday was train No. 35 due here
at 7:51 p. m. which arrived that
night two and one half hours late.
Otl r railroads in that part of the
stat • suffered loss by washouts, but
not o the extent of the Rock Island.
The Three Cent Piece Attain
The prospective anactment law
of the Bulkley bill authorizing the
coinage of a 3 cent piece and a half
cent piece has thrown dealers in
small wears and many corporations
ii o a state of excitement.
Beer, carfares and articles of com
meree that are placed on the mar-
ket at minimum of five cents if the
Bulkley bill reaches the statute
books. It is proposed that the cent
of the future shall be composed in
large part of nickel and will to
some extent resemble the 5 cent
piece now in use.
The idea of reintroducing the 3
c( nt picce to American currency
originated in Cleveland, where a 3
cent carfare is imposed by city or-
dinance. The bill authorizing the
issue was introduced by Represent-

tive Bulkley of Cleveland. It pass-
ed the house after being considered
by the committee on coinage,
weights and measures.
It is claimed by those urging the
passage of the bill that a 3 cent
piece will provide a smaller medi-
um with which to purchase hun
dreds of articles which are now ar ,
bitrarily sold for a nickel for want of
a smaller coin, thus establishing a
juster and more rational relations
between value and price will enable
the masses to purchase commodi-
ties in smaller quantities.
