Syllabus

Under the Act of June 16, 1880, c. 243, 21 Stat. 284, as amended March 3, 1881, c. 134, 21 Stat. 566, conferring jurisdiction on the Court of Claims over certain claims against the District of Columbia, chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

Page 246 U. S. 339

a claimant is not entitled to receive interest as such, save any that may accrue after rendition of the judgment, where the recovery is not based upon a contract expressly stipulating for interest. Rev.Stats., § 1091.

The provision of § 6 of the Act of 1880, supra, for satisfying such judgments with bonds bearing coupons for interest from the date upon which the claims were due and payable amounted to giving interest at a limited rate, before and after judgment, where payment was made in that mode; but where the amount of such bonds remaining unissued, of the maximum authorized by that section, was less than the amount of the claim allowed, the Court of Claims properly adjudged that, with respect to any part of the claim not paid in that special manner, there was no right to interest prior to the rendition of the judgment.

Affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
