Court of Claims. Congressional No. 7355. Hamilton A. Moore vs. The United States.

This case being a claim for supplies or stores alleged to have been taken by or furnished to the military forces of the United States for their use during the late war for the suppression of the rebellion, the court, on preliminary inquiry, finds that said Hamilton A. Moore, the person alleged to have been taken, was loyal to the Government of the United States throughout said war. Filed June 8, 1891 and May 16, 1892.

The claim in the above-entitled case for supplies or stores alleged to have been taken by or furnished to the military forces of the United States for their use during the late war for the suppression of the rebellion, was transmitted to the court by the Committee on War Claims of House of Representatives on the 20th day of February, 1890.

G.W.Z. Black, esq., appeared for the claimant, and the Attorney-General, by H.M. Foote, his assistant, and under his direction, appeared for the defense and protection of the interests of the United States.

On a preliminary inquiry the court, on the 8th day of June, 1891, found that the person alleged to have furnished the supplies or stores, or from whom they were alleged to have been taken, was loyal to the Government of the United States throughout the war.

The case was brought to a hearing on its merits on the 3rd day of march, 1892. The claimant in his petition makes the following allegations:

That he has a claim against the United States for stores and supplies furnished to or taken by the United States for army use, at or near Indian Spring, Washington County, Md., at the times hereinafter stated, and by the officers named, said property being reasonably worth at the time and place the value here given, that is to say:

Item 1. 7 tons hay (furnished Capt. Whitsel, commanding wagon train on way to Fort Leavenworth, June 5, 1865), at $12 per ton…. $84.00.

Item 2. 8 tons hay (furnished to Capt. Skinner, commanding wagon train on way to Fort Leavenworth, June 6, 1865), at $12 per ton…. $96.00.

The court, upon the evidence and after considering the briefs and arguments of counsel on both sides, makes the following

FINDINGS OF FACT.
