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

of the Rebellion over again, were under
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
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
