A* to Pensions.
Ur. MorrJ* Brandon has been making
an exhaustive study of the pension
question preparatory to the discussion
of his bill placing all pensioners upon
an Indigent bads. He has token tln
tension roll* for five counties including
municipal and rountiy communities,
and has compared them with the tax
returns o's the pensioners.
The result shows that 20 pur cent of
tlie pensioners return theli property at
and above *9OO. The total number In
the five counties who draw pensions Is
22* and the number whose property Is
return'd at *9OO and up-vatd Is
Mr. Brsndon has copied the tax re
turns In each case and a considerable
number of them run from $4,009 to lIH.-
.11*1, He says the returns are generally
under the actual value of propet ty and
that som- of the pensioners are prob
ably worth a meat deal more than thy
tax books indicate.
Mr. Hardin N'crris. clerk of the drug
