ACTION OHioLE'S ADVICE
The Commissioners Will (Tome To
gether Again When Called
By the President.
The Court of Claims has adjourned;
it may lie for days and it may he lor
aye. The action of the Council of State
dn Friday in refusing funds for the
court's conduct was supplemented yes
terday hy President Doie calling a halt
to the court's sessions. The matter
came up in the Executive Council yes
terday morning. Considerable discus
sion among the councilors ensued and
J. A. Magoon, president of the Court of
Claims, was sent for.
President Dole told Magoon that the
Council of State having assumed the
responsibility of stopping the operation
of the court, he had concluded that such
responsibility should rest with that
body. The Executive said he would
advise the court to adjourn at once to
meet at the call of th? Pn sldent of the
Republic. A question was raistd as to
the employment of a ckrk to receive
ttie claims dining the closing of the
court. Magoon paid that three claims
has been tiled on Saturday and that
many more would undoub.ed'.y tome in.
Over a thousand blanks for fil.ng
claims had been given out to applicant a.
Some talk followed and opinions of
what was beft in the prenii.es were ex
pressed. It was finally decided that the
lourt bhouid cei.-e work immediately
for the present. President Magoon said
that this would be agreeable to me
commissioners of the court and with
drew. In the Council of State.
Councilor Achi's resolution attac king
the Court of Claims was the order of
the day in the Council of State yester
day but the framer of the resolution
was absent when the matter was ready
for discussion. Isenberg. who occu
pies the desk next to Achi's said the
latter would probably be jibsent alto
gether from the meeting and asked mat
the matter be deferred until today.
Upon a motion to this effect being put
to the Council, it was unanimously car
ried. Achi came in later and did not
offer to call up the resolution upon
hearing of its temporary disposition.
Tje Court Adjourns.
The Court sat ye.-terday afternoon
for two hours. It was probably to be
its last sef-ion and it was made the
most of. A "number of petitions ac
companying claims for lire lossf a were
heard and handed ever to the safe
keeping of the r tenographer. It was
reported that a sum of money, the ac
cumu.ated deposits of claimant?, was
in bank in the name of the Court. The
members of the Court chatted about
the action of the Chamber of Com
merce, of the Council of State and of
the Executive Council. It was recog
nized that there was no further possJ
bi.ity of sessions with no money to
run the Court, and fo the Court made
upiis mind to accept the inevitable. It
adjourned. IJefore doing no the fol
lowing statement was drawn up as
voicing the sentiments of all the Com
missioners: The members of this Court were
commissioned on Monday, the 2d day
or April, 19u'. The Court organized
immediately, realizing the need of
speedy settlement of all Just claims
against the Government. We have met
from day to day until this time for the
purpose of receiving and filing claims,
and have distributed a great many pe
titions to people who have expressed
a desire to have their claims aJJudl
cated. The Court met here today pre
pared to receive petitions and to pro
ceed with the business for which the
Court was created, but on accout t of
the failure of the Council of State to
appropriate money for the necessary
expenses of the Court, President Doie
requested the Court to adjourn subject
to hi3 call. The Court appreciates the
position of people who have filed
claims here and those who were pre
paring their c'aims for filing, and ta
anxious that they should haTe speely
redress, but the action of the Council
of State has tied its hanl and prevents
consideration of all claims by this
Court for the present.
