. Senator Bate today had a very satis
tory interview with the officials in
the quartermaster's office, war de
partment, relative to the payment
of claims from Tennessee for horses,
saddles and bridles which were
taken by the federal troops from
Confederate soldiers in violation of
the terms of surrender. It will be
remembered that an act was pissed
by Senator Bate February 27, 1902,
providing for the payment of these
claims. Senator Bate also caused
to be inserted in the deficiency act
just passed provision for an addi
tional $ 125,000 to be paid for this
purpose, and he has been urging
the war department to speedily ad
just the claims.
"I was informed at the war de
partment to-day," said Senator
Bate, "that three hundred cases

will be settled as soon as they are
found to be just and legal. The de
partment has paid out S100,000 on
this account, and nearly all of it
has gone to claimants in the State
of Tennessee. I secured an amend
ment to the law which will allow
two more years tor the filing of
these claims, and I think all
entitled to consideration can be
heard. Claimants from Kentucky
and South Carolina are just filing
Speaking of Shiloh battlefield,
for which the sundry civil bill car
ried an appropriation of $32,000,
increased from $20,000, Senator
I am happy to say that the in
crease was made to give a fine mili
tary park on this battlefield, and
$2,000 of this appropriation was
given for the purpose of getting a
lake below the spring of Shiloh.
The first Confederate monument
in Shiloh Park will be erected in
August in honor of the second
Tennessee (Bate's) regiment. It
will be built by funds subscribed
privately by the survivors."
