A, The ivport on the bill stttce that he on
tcrod the military service of tbo United States
as Second Lieutenant of Oo. J, 7rilh N. Y. Yols.
JJis wsormie. in that l-ogimont boar testimony
to hih li.iility to duty as an officer during Mio
time hi tervcd with it. He was honorably
oWlmrged from that rogimout on the Gtli day
of I-eCctjiber, 18fl2. The motive which led to
hie diwharge wore thoBc: His health had be
come iuiMiied and he fed I unable to perform
the dutie devolving ujhih him. He subso
qucMitly eiiterefl the military service as Finst
Lioiu'imnt in the lith N. Y. Art., aud sorvod
v ith th.it raiment until the 23d day of Jauu
nr , InW, lieu lu waa aontonoud by a general
court -usHrtia' to be cm1i tared and to ho forevor
disqualified from holding any office of profit
or trust under tho Utiitod Stutos Govormnont.
During the time ha burred iu tite 14th Itagi
in on l of Artf'lery he made an oxcollont mili
tary record. Lieut Theodore 1. Cook, of the
14lh X. Y. Art., aays:
1Ic(Duh1h;i h wit to the field with the 14lh X.
Y. Art., and wrf with the repuiietit doing nctive
service from ilw orotwinp of the Kapidiui until the
time of Id discharge, mid whs with tho ragiiuoiit iu
kII the inj.TiiuMit during that time. At tho but
tle ot the V iiiui ttuMi he whs ooiitipicuoug in coin
man iin'hi -Kiini'li-lineinroiit of our brigade,
mid in capturing i minionr of pruonors. Again, on
the lTih til .lime lHH.at I'otooburg, he had chnrgo
of the akirnualiera in our front, and wns exposed to
availing tiro most of the day. In tho evening of
the biune day he wns wounded in the shoulder from
r piece of f hell which glnneed from u tree nonr
whore the tine wns being formed. Lieut Dunlap
was ft bravo, honorable Holdier, nnd I huve olwnya
regarded his dismissal as a great outrage nnd n
crime, nnd the Government ought to hot it right by
placing him buck on the niustor-rolla of his regi
ment, and by t renting him in nil respects ns though
he hnd boon mustered out with Ids regiment nt the
oiose of the war.
Ho tondored his resignation whilo before tho
enemy, on account of diflbronccs with his su
perior olllcflrs, for whioh ho was court-martialed
nnd cjishiorod. Tho hill rovokes tho sentence
and gives him an honorahlo dischnrgo.
TKIAL 7JV JUEV TO TENSION CLAIMANTS.
The Senate considered for a short time tho
bill to give the right of trial by jury to pension
claimants whose applications have been rejected
by the Seerotary of tho Interior on appeal from
tho decision of the Commissioner of Pensions.
The committee presented tbo following favora
ble report :
A grout nuinbor of pension claims, nflor years of
earnest iM-osocutfou nt grent expense to tho parlies,
are filially refueled by the Department, often where
the evidence is very conflicting nnd great doubt
exists of the jmdiec of the decision. The methods
of trial, siibttnulinlly ex parte mid without the ad
vantage ot perhoiml oxnmination of lliu party nnd
witness) in presence of (he tribunal which decides
the entiM , CHnnot lie remedied under tho ptescnl
eystctn of adjudication. Vol the rights concluded
are of mueh gi-idoreatniinry importance than the
ordinnr nmouiitb involved iu litigntion, nnd to the
DOidier. bib widow, minor ahildrcu. nnd dependent
relatives the determination of these questions
generally involve the comforts of life nnd not un
frequently exigence ittelf.
The groat uines of iipplieitlonsfor relief by special
legislation grow out of the dissntihfaotion of claim
nuts who have prohoouted thoir elniuis for ninny
years under the greatest ddllouiticb with the final,
nnd ai tliej believe unjiibl, docbrion of thoir claims.
Consequently they come to Cogreos, and thoir peti
tions must be beard. The present Congress there
have been more than 4.600 bills for special nets of
pension introduced in the two Houses of Congress
S.7' in the House and 704 iu tho Soimto nnd
probably not lew than 8,000 will be introduced be
luiv ' uiigiv ends. Of lhec, C18 have pa-sod the
Oongra. How many will become lawls unknown
to iho committee. Probably nt lenst nineteen
twoiiliuths of the bills nrohtih&tnnliallynppenlg from
the deeiion of the J'oiibiou Oftlce.
Tlieit; W e erj-1 l - non t believe that this army of

nnd the for maUoii of just conclusion in the premi
ses. Ronator Blair (N. 11.), oxplaining and advo
cating the bill, said:
This is a bill whioh was ruportod without nny
imuority report, and. so far us 1 know, certainly nt
the time of notion iu the committee, without oppo
tillon. Its pmpoM; is to remove, if posxiblc. tho
occasion for special legislation iu regnrd to pension
ousos lo such nit extent us is possible. The report
eels forth most of the facts, though not to the full
extent lhil thiyexbit nt the nioMint time in tho
juirtory ol this Congress, for the ruuson that tho
report was subinilled evoral months ngo. Any
ouc-conneeted seriously, who has lenlly nnything
to do w ith the biiHiius of the Tension Comuiitlee,
nnd wlKrc memUrshlp of that eommitteo is not
mere) nominal, m far us iUs Ihbor Is concerned,
wil, know very well that it is highly important
thnt some method be contrived b the wisdom of
CoiigieMsthat will give llicojiportunityofndjudi
oaliug. in a NNtbrfHiUory maimer, the pension claims
which now coiw here, and must continue loeome

the ltrnr Tlie vmmn whieli come to Congress

at least four filth of all those that we ure called
upon to act umii at all. If we could give to those
pnrtM iu their own vicinity, where they live, the
opportunity of trying their eases over nguin nt
their own expense, as the bill lanvub them to do, if
at all, by the ;Hion of the district court, cither the
deoiniiii of th judir- or uu auditor, or n jury if tho
jmrty almost' to nsk for a jury, it would rullcvo
ConKTMes entirely of this ofne of iipiilicRtions, for

would Ik a uulciuiil nuswor to such u man coming
to OongroM to Niy to him "Apply to the court in
your own vie.nit . and abide tho notion of n jury

It is with tin- view llmt this bill is devised. Of
course tbert would be still rtHiiaiiiiug special ciihcs
that nrh outside of gcuurnl laws which come hero
on petition, but the Krul muss of the work which
now cmlMri-HMies Uu cominiUue, nnd which does
not always result sMtisfHetorily to the oluiiunut
and which is nlso uttonded witli grent sacrifice of
time nnd great labor nnd grent expense to the
claimant, or lit lonst usually so, would In; obviated.
The bill was referred back to tho Committo
for furlhor consideration.

TARIFF RKFOUM AGAIN DEFEATED.

that on Saturday ho would move to take up his
bill to roduco the tariff. The motion was made
on that day and was dofeatcd by yeas, 149 ;
nays, 154. Tlie result was not entirely unex
pected. A careful canvass mado by tho Ropub
licans and Randall Democrats showed Mr. Mor
rison's defeat to be almost certain, and even
Mr. Morrison himself, when questioned as to
the outcome- ou Friday night, was doubtful of
success. Still it was not a settled matter, and
this olomont of uncertainty added to tho dcop
interest folt. Thore was a Tory full attend
ance, loss than 20 members being absent
Twouty-aix Democrats voted in the nega

(Jiroular .No. L.
Comrades: Attention is called toSectiou 1,
Article IX, Constitution and By-Laws of tho
National Association, which requires that local
absooiations shall meet in January of each year,
for tho purpose of electing officers. To thiB an
nual roll-call every cx-prisoner in tho Union
should respoud, oither in person or by letter,
paying or remitting one year's dues, which iu
no case should exceed $1, The ncwlj'-elected
officers should see that their namesaud addresses
are promptly reported to tho Secretary of thoir
respective State Associations, and also to tbo
Secretary of the National Association. Like
lists of tho memhership of such associations
should bo similarly reported, and tho data re
quired by the Commissioner of Pensions secured.
Finally, each and every ex-prisoner should bo
pledged to write without delay a personal let
ter to his Representative in Congress, request
ing him to urge the passage of House bill No.
609d at the prosout session of the National Leg
islature. Atteution is also called to Chapter II, Article
I, Section 2, of the Constitution and By-Laws
of tho National Association, rolating to the or
ganization aud inomberbhip of State Associa
tions. In several cases jcalouKiesandill-fcciling
have growu out of disregard of tho chapter
cited, which it is now hopod to allay. In such
au organization as ours harmony can only be
socurod and maiutaiuod by tho most scrupulous
regard for the rights and privileges of each aud
evory member. Tho call for tho meeting of
tho State Associations bhould therefore bo
widely disseminated, to the end that all local
associations desiring to parti cijmto therein may
have timely notice, and when the delegates are
assembled an equitable apportionment of voting
strength must bu made. All contests should bo
referred to tho National Association upon an
agreed Btatemont of facts, if that cau tw ob
tained; but at any rate, associations that con
spicuously ignore the Constitution or tho Na
tional Association will not hereafter ho permit
ted to exorcise powers thereunder without a
protest It is fashionable to scoff at rod tape
aud ignore minor details, but no organization
can flourish without the one, or survive tho
other for any length of time.
Iu conclusion tho officers of the National Asso
ciation bid the comrades to bo of good cheer and
work whilo it is yet day. There is no repent
ance in the grave; neither will a pension do
you any good after death. Therefore, while
you are yet living men, put your bhoulders to
thewheol,aud secure tho recognition that your
services and sufferings so richly merit In tho
first place, join or form local associations of ex
prisonors in your respective Counties during
the month of January, 18S7, and then thunder
your domands in the cars of Congressmen, as
you have a perfect right to do. Don't send pe
titions, which are never read or noticed, but
write loiters, and make them strong hut gen
tlemanly. Don't indulge in threats, hut make
your mcaniug so plain that thore cau bo no
mistako about it All depends upon yourselves,
aud it is a duty you owe to your families and
to thousands of bick and suffering comrades,
who, hut for this relief, must soon sloop i pre
mature graves. Then let nothing stand be
tweon your duty and its accomplishment
