Complete Maiihood & BOBBER War Claims Policy Bitterly At tacked in the House. VIOLENT SPEECHES MADE Leaders Arraigned by Members of TLielr Own l'nrty for Staving Off Payment of Claims J ustly Due Loyal Citizens of tUo Soutli IfolltiCH Crept in und Made It a Field Day. There was an old-fashioned field day in Hie House of Representatives yesterday with radical variation. It was private bill day under the rules, when bills to nay claims arising out of I the war, -winch in the past aflordcd op- IrfirlllIlitv ,,. .,.... fnr lMl,iP b.ittio.s .-.j .... --..-..- .. .. 0 of the Rebellion over again, were under consideration. The content, however, was waged largely by Republican members, who advocated the payment of the bills leporled by the Com mittee on War Claims and those who lavored postponing, .jiul home cl the Mate ments were startling in their Litterness. Mr. Mahou or Pennsylvania, chairman of the committee, was asked by Mr. Dingley if the committee wassatisliedof the Justice and correctness of a claim for the pay ment of which a I ill bad been reported. Replying, Mr. Mahon reviewed the action or Congress on tlics-e claims, their refeience to the court of claims for cxamitiatir n and finding of facts, and passionately declared that Congress either ought to pay the claims recommended bj the courtcrabohsh the court, so that the people might know what to expect. GREATEST ROBBER IN HISTORY. He declared that the government was a great robber or its private citizens, and asserted that he would rather, have a pauper owe him $1,000 than to be a creditor or the United States for that amount. Mr. Walker was almost violent in his denunciation of the policy which pre scribed the payment or these claims. Dra matically he declared that no robber born on the Rhine ever equalled the govern ment or the United States iu its robbery or honest creditors. He attacked the leaders or the House, charging them with purposely preventing the consideration or bills for the paj ment of just claims, asserting that ex traordinary rulings or the chair, in com mittee of the whole, were resorted to to aid in carrying out that policy. APPEAL FOR CLAIMANTS. Messrs. McCall and Evans appealed to the Iloue to pay the claims or lojal men from the feouth, and Mr. McRay charged that to enter upon the pavment of them would compel the next administration to issue bonds rrom beginning to tjose. Messrs. Dockerj and Grosveuor made political speeches 111 connection with their common position to the pavment or the claims, the former asserting that Re publican legislation in the past, and the latter that Democratic administration was responsible for the present condition of the Treasury The net result of the dnv's discussion was the rejection or one bill and the passage or another. At 4 50 o'clock the House took a recess until 8 o'clock, the evening session to be ror the consideration or private pen sion 'bills. REC0KD 0P THE COURTS.
