NOT MLZELL'S DAY.
Agaia the Second Auditor Says Plainly That the Private IS SOT TET A PENSION EXPERT. The Veterans' Christmas Gift Causes a Big Lot of Tedious Work. 2C0 EX D TO THE LETTERS THAT COME IN. All Each Claims as Were Urged, Mr. Day's Clerks Ear, Hare Been Fail Private Dalzell's Christmas gitt to vet erans, informing them of a sure hold they had on some Government funds without yielding up a big tec to pension sharks, has eo flooded the Second Auditor's office with letters of inquiry and overworked all the clerks that Mr. Day says twice in a breath that Dalzell doesn't know what he is talk ing about An old soldier employed in the office also shows wherein the Private must be mistaken. SPECIAL TELECKAM TO TOE DISrATCH.1 "Washington, January 10. The claim of "Private" Dalzell, ol Caldwell, 0., that soldieis are entitled to certain compensation under an old law, which few of them had ever received, has probably caused more trouble and annoyance to the Pension and Treasury authorities than any proposition ever invented for the benefit of veterans, and has aroused hopes in the minds of tens of thousands of old soldiers which will never be realized. The office of the Second Anditor and that of the Quartermaster General have been overwhelmed with letters from veterans in quiring in regard to the promise held out in the "Christmas gift" of the "Private," pre sented in The Dispatch, and an immense amount of extra work has been imposed on these offices in consequence. The matter is so serious that Second Auditor Bay is impelled to make the following statement touching the matter to the correspondent of The Dispatch: I am not pining to enter Into a newspaper controversy with Private Dalzell. He is a claim agent, seeking business. It is not an uncom mon thing among claim agents of a certain class to excite false hopes by Insisting that an (Old law which has been overlooked had, by the superior diligence of the agent, been resur rected, and as Mr. Dalzell stated in one of his public letters that the amounts due the volun teer soldiers under his alleged discovery amounted to $14,000,000, and he clinched his statement with the assertion that he had filed his claim thereunder, and it had been allowed him. This engendered belief in him and in his statements in this respect, but his allegation that his claim had been allowed by this office was untrue. His claim wasn't allowed, because there is not now nor has there been any law under which it could be allowed. When this central false statement was exposed to the public, he sought toevado its effect by again writing Tnc Pittsbcro DisrATcn, claiming that he "clinches" his former statement by printing what he alleged is a copy of a blank lurnished him by this office. That statement that this blank emanated in the Second Audi tor's Office is alike untrue. This office doesn't now nor has it at any time used such a form. It if, however, recognized as a claim agent's blank printed and sold in this city. ANOTHER MAN SATS DALZELL IS OFF. Supplementary to this the following plain and careful statement of the law and the facts in the matter has been prepared by an old soldier, who has been one of the leading and most trusted officials of the Second Auditor's Office for the long period of 21 years: " In regard to the Dalzell letter of December So, lbSS, and subsequent utterances by him, the fi ist oi toe wnoie matter is: tie asserts that he as discovered some new laws in relation to the allowance of mileage to 5 cents a mile to soldiers while on furlough, etc., and also ration pay to same in similar cases, or where soldiers were prisoners of war, and lastly, extra duty pay between October, 1862. and April, 1863 that ho has received at, and, therefore, ail other soldiers were also entitled to it. Now, this statement, as made by him, is so loose, so vague and so misleading, that its fallacy will be apparent at once to anyone who will read this. First There is no law providing for the pay ment of "mileage," at 6 cents a mile or other wise, to any soldiers while on furlough.orwhile in the service; neither has such pay ever been allowed orpaid by the accounting officers in any case. The Act as applicable to the pay ment of transportation, pay and subsistence of volunteer soldiers of the late war, when they were discharged and sent home, was passed July 22, 1861 (over 27 years ago), and it has been in operation ever since its passage, and it is still in force. But it must be apparent to everv one that nearly all soldiers who were entitled to such pay have already received it, or an equiva lent for it. A very large majority of the soldiers were actually furnished transportation by the Government when sent home to be mustered out, and in such cases the soldier has no claim whatever for any further allowance on this account, and so it is only in exceptional cases now that a soldier may have a reasonable claim for transportation pay to his place of enlistment when discharged and sent home, and even then he must furnish af firmatively satisfactory evidence that he ap plied to the Government for his transporta tion, but that waS refused or he could not ob tain it or avail himself of it, and setting forth the facts f nlly why, etc and that he was there fore obliged to pay his own faro home. EXTHA DUTY PAY FOEDIDDEN. Second In-rcgard to extra duty pay granted to enlisted men who were detailed to perform special and extra work as blacksmiths, carpen ters, skilled mechanics, teamsters, etc, nearly all those men so enlisted were either paid such Say while In the service on final payment, when ischarged; but section 35, act of March 3, 18C3, forbids the payment of extra dnty pay to volunteers and for services after said date, so that practically it can only bo allowed in ex ceptional cases now. Third The act granting rations to soldiers who were prisoners of war was passed July 25, 1866, and that granting the same pay to the heirs of such soldiers (not more remote than brothers aud sisters of soldiers) was passed March 2, 1867, and these acts are still in force, but nearly all those entitled to this pay have already long since been paid it; and so in re gard to the allowance of ration or subsistence pay to soldiers while on furlough. It will thus be seen that the statements made by Mr. Dalzell in these matters are so inaccu rate and misleading that they are unworthy of consideration. Taey will only excite false hopes and expectations in claimants, in addi tion to all the trouble and useless expense made tbcm and the Government on that ac count. In the office of the Second Auditor to-day an immense pile of letters was received in evidence of the success of the scheme of "Private" Dalzell to advertise himself. The Quartermaster-General's office is also flooded with inquiring missives to such an extent that the iol lowing circularletter was drafted to-day, to be sent to all inquirers. A CIRCULAR DECIDEDLY APEOPOS. In reply to your inquiry on the subject, you are respectfully informed that to entitle sol diers to extra pay during the lato war they were required to be regularly detailed on extra duty, by competent authority, and employed at constant labor as mechanics, teamsters and laborers, lor not less than ten days. Soldiers who were enlisted and mustered as wagoners, and those detailed to drive tno company or regimental teams, were not allowed extra com pensation. As a rule, all soldiers who were thus employed prior to March 3, 1M3 (when such payments were prohibited by law, except to those employed as clerks and messengers at the headquarters of geographical di visions and departments and in military offices in Washington), have been paid. If, however, there is any further allowance due you for extra duty services, a clai-i pre pared and submitted In accordance with the Inclosed instructions will be dulv considered. Claims for travel pay or mileage from place'' of discharge to the home of the soldier are ad justed by the Second Auditor of the Treasury, ana those for commutation of rations while a prisoner of war or on a furlough, by the Com missary General of Subsistence, United States Army, and do not come nnder the jurisdiction of this office. This is signed by S. B. Holabird, the Quartermaster General of the Army. All the officials who have anything to do with this matter express a fervent hope that these statements will set at rest the lurorc raised among the old soldiers by the deceptive allegations of Mr. Dalzell, and relieve their offices of the hundreds and thousands of un necessary inquiries that are coming in daily.
