During the counting of second ballot for Junior Vice-Com-
mander, Past Department Commander Geo. H. Patch introduced
the following resolutions : —

Whereas, By a recent decision of tlie Commissioner of Pensions,
it appears tliat any soldier or sailor suffering from a loss of one hand
and one foot cannot get an increase of pension, because tlie disability is
not of such a character as to be progressive ; and

Whereas, It being known that such soldier or sailor so injured
is in many cases as badly incapacitated for earning a livelihood as if
both feet were gone, in which case he would receive seventy-two dollars
per month ; therefore be it

Resolved, That this Encampment represent these facts to the Con-
gressional Committee on Invalid Pensions of the Forty-ninth Congress,
and request them to so amend the pension laws as to provide a pension
of seventy-two dollars per month to all soldiers and sailors who lost
one leg and one hand or one foot and one hand in the service of their
country.

He moved the adoption of this resolution, and that the
incoming Department Commander transmit a copy of the same
to the Committee on Invalid Pensions .

Adopted.

lutions : —



TWENTIETH ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 899

Besolved, That the delegates to this Encampment, representing
nearly eighteen thousand comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic,
as Avell as the sentiment of thousands of other honorably discharged
soldiers and sailors, do most heartily endorse the so-called '■ Tobin Bill"
now before the legislature of th6 Commonwealth, and pray our senators
and representatives to urge its passage, that it may become part of the
public statutes of our State. We expressly pray that it may become a

the Acts of the year 1884, or by the rules of the Civil Service Commis-
sioners, made under the provisions of said Act. Age, loss of limb,

cation for such examinations, or from taking such examinations, pro-
vided they are entitled to do so, under the rules of said Commissioners.
