Private Dalzell's Christmas gitt to vet

had on some Government funds without
yielding up a big tec to pension sharks, has

letters of inquiry and overworked all the

SPECIAL TELECKAM TO TOE DISrATCH.1
"Washington, January 10. The claim
of "Private" Dalzell, ol Caldwell, 0., that
soldieis are entitled to certain compensation
under an old law, which few of them had
ever received, has probably caused more
trouble and annoyance to the Pension and
Treasury authorities than any proposition
ever invented for the benefit of veterans,
and has aroused hopes in the minds of tens
of thousands of old soldiers which will never
The office of the Second Anditor and that
of the Quartermaster General have been
overwhelmed with letters from veterans in
quiring in regard to the promise held out in
the "Christmas gift" of the "Private," pre
sented in The Dispatch, and an immense
amount of extra work has been imposed on
these offices in consequence. The matter is
so serious that Second Auditor Bay is
impelled to make the following statement
touching the matter to the correspondent of
I am not pining to enter Into a newspaper
controversy with Private Dalzell. He is a claim
agent, seeking business. It is not an uncom
mon thing among claim agents of a certain
class to excite false hopes by Insisting that an
(Old law which has been overlooked had, by the
superior diligence of the agent, been resur
rected, and as Mr. Dalzell stated in one of his
public letters that the amounts due the volun
teer soldiers under his alleged discovery
amounted to $14,000,000, and he clinched his
statement with the assertion that he had filed
his claim thereunder, and it had been allowed
him. This engendered belief in him and in his
statements in this respect, but his allegation
that his claim had been allowed by this office
was untrue. His claim wasn't allowed, because
there is not now nor has there been any law
under which it could be allowed. When this
central false statement was exposed to the
public, he sought toevado its effect by again
writing Tnc Pittsbcro DisrATcn, claiming
that he "clinches" his former statement by
printing what he alleged is a copy of a blank
lurnished him by this office. That statement
that this blank emanated in the Second Audi
tor's Office is alike untrue. This office doesn't
now nor has it at any time used such a form.
It if, however, recognized as a claim agent's
blank printed and sold in this city.
ANOTHER MAN SATS DALZELL IS OFF.
Supplementary to this the following plain
and careful statement of the law and the
facts in the matter has been prepared by an
old soldier, who has been one of the leading
and most trusted officials of the Second
Auditor's Office for the long period of 21
" In regard to the Dalzell letter of December
So, lbSS, and subsequent utterances by him, the
ist oi toe wnoie matter is: tie asserts that he
as discovered some new laws in relation to
the allowance of mileage to 5 cents a mile to
soldiers while on furlough, etc., and also
ration pay to same in similar cases, or where
soldiers were prisoners of war, and lastly, extra
duty pay between October, 1862. and April, 1863
that ho has received at, and, therefore, ail
other soldiers were also entitled to it. Now,
this statement, as made by him, is so loose, so
vague and so misleading, that its fallacy will
be apparent at once to anyone who will read
First There is no law providing for the pay
ment of "mileage," at 6 cents a mile or other
wise, to any soldiers while on furlough.orwhile
in the service; neither has such pay ever been
allowed orpaid by the accounting officers in
any case. The Act as applicable to the pay
ment of transportation, pay and subsistence of
volunteer soldiers of the late war, when they
were discharged and sent home, was passed
July 22, 1861 (over 27 years ago), and it has been
in operation ever since its passage, and it is still
in force. But it must be apparent to everv one
that nearly all soldiers who were entitled to
such pay have already received it, or an equiva
lent for it. A very large majority
of the soldiers were actually furnished
transportation by the Government when sent
home to be mustered out, and in such cases the
soldier has no claim whatever for any further
allowance on this account, and so it is only in
exceptional cases now that a soldier may have
a reasonable claim for transportation pay to
his place of enlistment when discharged and
sent home, and even then he must furnish af
firmatively satisfactory evidence that he ap
plied to the Government for his transporta
tion, but that waS refused or he could not ob
tain it or avail himself of it, and setting forth
the facts f nlly why, etc and that he was there
fore obliged to pay his own faro home.
EXTHA DUTY PAY FOEDIDDEN.
Second In-rcgard to extra duty pay granted
to enlisted men who were detailed to perform
special and extra work as blacksmiths, carpen
ters, skilled mechanics, teamsters, etc, nearly
all those men so enlisted were either paid such
Say while In the service on final payment, when
ischarged; but section 35, act of March 3, 18C3,
forbids the payment of extra dnty pay to
volunteers and for services after said date, so
that practically it can only bo allowed in ex
ceptional cases now.
Third The act granting rations to soldiers
who were prisoners of war was passed July 25,
1866, and that granting the same pay to the
heirs of such soldiers (not more remote than
brothers aud sisters of soldiers) was passed
March 2, 1867, and these acts are still in force,
but nearly all those entitled to this pay have
already long since been paid it; and so in re
gard to the allowance of ration or subsistence
pay to soldiers while on furlough.
It will thus be seen that the statements made
by Mr. Dalzell in these matters are so inaccu
rate and misleading that they are unworthy of
consideration. Taey will only excite false
hopes and expectations in claimants, in addi
tion to all the trouble and useless expense
made tbcm and the Government on that ac
count. In the office of the Second Auditor to-day
an immense pile of letters was received in
evidence of the success of the scheme of
"Private" Dalzell to advertise himself. The
Quartermaster-General's office is also flooded
with inquiring missives to such an extent
that the iol lowing circularletter was drafted
to-day, to be sent to all inquirers.
A CIRCULAR DECIDEDLY APEOPOS.
In reply to your inquiry on the subject, you
are respectfully informed that to entitle sol
diers to extra pay during the lato war they
were required to be regularly detailed on extra
duty, by competent authority, and employed at
constant labor as mechanics, teamsters and
laborers, lor not less than ten days. Soldiers
who were enlisted and mustered as wagoners,
and those detailed to drive tno company or
regimental teams, were not allowed extra com
pensation. As a rule, all soldiers who were
thus employed prior to March 3, 1M3 (when
such payments were prohibited by law, except
to those employed as clerks and messengers at
the headquarters of geographical di
visions and departments and in military
offices in Washington), have been paid.
If, however, there is any further allowance
due you for extra duty services, a clai-i pre
pared and submitted In accordance with the
Inclosed instructions will be dulv considered.
Claims for travel pay or mileage from place'' of
discharge to the home of the soldier are ad
justed by the Second Auditor of the Treasury,
ana those for commutation of rations while a
prisoner of war or on a furlough, by the Com
missary General of Subsistence, United States
Army, and do not come nnder the jurisdiction
of this office.
This is signed by S. B. Holabird, the
Quartermaster General of the Army. All
the officials who have anything to do with
this matter express a fervent hope that these
statements will set at rest the lurorc raised
among the old soldiers by the deceptive
allegations of Mr. Dalzell, and relieve their
offices of the hundreds and thousands of un
necessary inquiries that are coming in daily.

The Plain Truth
Is that Hood's Sarsaparilla has cured thou
sands of people who suffered severely with
rheumatism. It neutralizes the lactic acid in
the blood, which causes those terrible pains
and aches, and also vitalizes and enriches the
blood, thus preventing the recurrence of the
disease. These facts i arrant us in urging on,
if you suffer with rheumatism, to give Hood's
Sarsaparilla a trial
"Having been troubled with inflammatory
rheumatism for many years, my favorable at
tention was called to Hood's Sarsaparilla by an
advertisement of cures it bad effected. I have
now used three bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla
and can already testify to beneficial results. I
highly recommend it as a great blood purifier."

Lest my neighbors should get there before.
You see: they have great bargain prices,
Which lasts for a week or ten days:
Their clearance sale so many entices.
That I think to deal with them pays.

At prices that are quite astounding.
