Prosernt ins; a Claim Against I nrle Sam
Ei-rov. Price's Experience.
Washington" Citt, April 20. An inter
esting claim that has beeu pending beforo
the courts aud congress for the past forty
years is now undergoing final adjustment
i t the treasury department. The claim
eat is ex-Governor R. W. Price, of Xew
Jersey. "While a purser in the navy, away
lack ia 1S50, Governor Price advanced
$75,000 to his successor for the purpose of
eiahliug him to meet current expenses
until government funds could be forth
coming. Upon his return east the treasury
o.Scials declined to reimburse Governor
Price. They alleged that the appointment
ot his successor, which had beeu made by
tie naval commandant, was not approved
by the secretary of the navy.
Adding Injury to Injury.
The governor was also refused credit
for ail the government moneys turned
over to his successor and suit was entered
against him in the Xew Jersey courts to
recover these amounts. The court de
cked the case in Governor Price's favor.
Tt is happened in 1856 and Governor Price
ha been endeavoring ever since to secure
thu return of the $75,009 advanced from
hit private funds. A bill to this effect
was finally passed last session. The indi
cations are that the amount that he will
reieive will fall short of $75,000. The
focrth auditor has rod need it to $45,000,
$30 0C0 having beeu deducted because of
cer ain misallowed vouchers while he was

DECISION IN A PENSION CLAIM.
The "Line of Duty" Again Defined by
Assistant Secretary Unssey.
Washington Crrr, April 20. Assistant
Secretary Bussey Saturday reversed the de
cision of the commissioner of pensions,
who rejected the appeal of Squira Walter,
father of George W. Walter, of company
H, Second West Virginia cavalry, and
directed that his claim be allowed. The
son, according to the records, while serv
ing as a corporal, was drowned while
bathing in the Potomac river on Septem
ber 15, 18(53. The commissioner of pen
sions rejected the application of the
father for peusion on the ground that the
soldier was not engaged in the perform
ance of duty incident to the service.
Vetoed and Once More Rejected.
A special act granting the applicant a
pension was passed, but vetoed by Presi
dent Cleveland. The claim was then sub
jected to a special examination and again
rejected on tbi. ground that at the date of
the soldier's death the claimant was not
dependent on him for support. The as
sistant secretary, however, finds that the
father was, at the time of his son's death,
iu part dependent upon the son for sup
port. The claimant is now 73 years of
age, in destitute circumstances, and un
der recent rulings the department holds
that the son was in line of duty and al
lows the claim.
Money and Goods Both Lost.
Washington CiTr, April 20 Secretary
Foster has decided to suspend the consular
seal system on cars and instructions to
that effect will be issued from the treas
ury department. In its placa Secretary
Foster will adopt the system of locked
cars and manifests, which he believes will
ba better all round. The ciians5 coatem
plated is the result of aa investigation in
stitute I by Secretary Windom, .which
showed that the government was losing
money, and merchants losing goods under
the consular seal system.

KAISER BILLY ANGRY Al BISMARCK.
Old Itlnd and F.iien Writes a Letter-
Why He Likes Foyere-Ouertler.
London, April 20. The kaiser is said to
be more angered than ever against Bis
marck by the letter of the priace to the
widow of M. Poyere-Quertier, in which the
prince charged the kaiser with ingrati
tu ie. and substantially said that he had
put the imperial family of Germauv where
it is. Prince Bismarck was always friendly
to Poyere-Quertier, and the prince's ene
mies say tnat Poyere-Qaertier's ability to
hold his own iu a drinking bout with the
prince saved the French a thousand mill
ions of francs on the war indemuitv. Bis
mirck's claim to hare made the kaiser is
ail the more offensive to t he latter because
lie has affected to hold his crown only
from heaven, and not to be indebted to
any human asency.
