adsance S3 or is usu ally required for expenses with friendly assurances that no more will be demand ed the claim be allowed The fee is paid tbe application filed aud in the end disallowed but the attorney has received bis little advance fee which is all he ex pected and so he continues the hunt for new claimants from whom new fges cap be obtained From twenty to 200 or more of theseclaims are sometimes filed in one package by one firm and as a natural con sequence over 00 per cent of all claims re ceived are rejected as devoid Of merit How It Affects Good Claims As it takes the same amount of time and labor to dispose of such claims as it does to settle the just and meritorious ones the prompt settlement of the latter claims is greatly retarded and the corre spondence of the office greatly increased The second auditor suggests that claim ants who really think that they are enti tled to more pay and bounty should write directly to him stating all the facta in the casie including
