more limited sense. 497.
2. The appropriation for per diem in lieu of subsistence and cost of

transportation of employees of the Department of Labor can not

SURVEYS, PUBLIC LANDS.
1. A contract for the survey of the public lands, signed by the deputy

surveyor July 13, 1882, by the surveyor-general October 20, 1884,
nunc pro tunc for August 7, 1882,” and approved by the Com-
missioner of the General Land Office October 30, 1884, is effective
only from the date of approval. (1 Comp. Dec., 321.) The lia-
bility of the United States under the contract is limited to the
mileage rates prescribed in the appropriation for the fiscal year

1884. 557.
2. As the General Land Office is charged with the duty ot ascertain-

ing the facts in relation to public surveys and is especially quali-
fied for such duty, the accounting officers, in the absence of
conclusive proof to the contrary, are not justified in overruling

the conclusions of said office. 614.

TELEGRAPHING.
Where no directions are given that the bond-aided telegraph line be

used in the transmission of a message and no proof is furnished
that such line was actually used, the telegraph company first

receiving the message is entitled to payment. 413.
See CIRCULAR IN APPENDIX.

TELEPHONES.
If an appropriation is available for the rental of a telephone, the ones-

tion whether it is a necessary convenience for the transaction of
the public business is one for the decision of the officer under
whose direction the appropriation is placed and not of the ac-

counting officers. 397.

TRANSFER OF FREIGHT.

See Pacific RAILROADS, No. 7.
TRANSPORTATION.
1. When the United States enters into contract relations with its citi.

zens, it subjects itself to the same rules of right and justice which

govern dealings between individuals. 405.
2. Whenever a “transportation ordėr" has been issued by a proper

officer of the Government in the transaction of public business
and transportation has been furnished thereon, the United States
is legally bound to pay for the same, in accordance with the

reasonable interpretation of said “order.” 405.
3. The well-understood usage prevailing among railroad companies in

the United States is that they issue “limited ” tickets to ordinary
travelers, unless "unlimited” tickets are especially called for.
In recognition of this usage, the "transportation orders” issued
by the several officers of the Government will be held to call for
“limited” tickets only, except in cases where some other kind of

tickets is specially demanded. 405.
4. An officer furnished with transportation orders” which assure

him carriage by the ordinary ronte of travel is not at liberty to
select some other route, for his own convenience, and then claim

reimbursement of cost of travel. 472.
5. The act of June 16, 1874, providing that no credit shall be allowed

for payment or allowances for travel in excess of the amount
actually paid, operates as a bar to the payment of mileage,"

even though, as a matter of law, the claim inay be valid. 472.

See Pacific RAILROADS.
TRANSPORTATION OF THE NAVY.

See Navy, No. 4.
TRAVEL PAY.
1. An officer discharged by acceptance of his resignation to enable

him to accept a civil appointment is discharged for his own con-

venience, and is not entitled to travel pay. 252.
2. When an officer receives an honorable discharge upon his resigna-

tion tendered at the request of his superior officer who formally
recommends that he be discharged for the good of the service as
incompetent, it is an involuntary discharge and not by way of
punishment for an offense. Under these circumstances the officer
is entitled to traveling allowances as provided in the act of Jan-
uary 29, 1813 (2 Stat., 794; section 1289, Rev. Stat.). 424.

TRAVEL PAY-Continued.
3. As a general rule, when an officer is honorably discharged on his

resignation tendered on the ground of physical disability, he
must be regarded as involuntarily discharged, and entitled to
traveling allowances, as provided in the act of January 29, 1813

(2 Stat., 794; section 1289, Rev. Stat.). 476.
4. Where, however, it affirmatively appears that the disability existed

when the officer entered the service, or was caused by his own
misconduct after he entered the service, the rule aforesaid can

not apply, and traveling allowances should be denied. 476.
5. The discharge of an officer to enable him to accept an appointment

in a higher grade in another regiment, the services being sub-
stantially continuous, is not a final discharge, and does not entitlo
him to travel pay. On his final discharge only is he entitled to
traveling allowances to the place where he was origipally enrolled

or appointed in his first service. 504.

UNLIQUIDATED DAMAGES.
'1. The accounting officers of the Treasury have no jurisdiction to

settle claims for unliquidated damages arising from the torts of

the agents of the Government. 174.
2. Where an officer hires a boat in making preliminary examinations

in connection with river and harbor work, and the same is lost
in such work, without fault or negligence on the part of the offi-
cer, by an inevitable accident, it is a case of locatio rei, and under
the law of bailients the United States are not liable for the
value of the property lost in the absence of a contract assuming

such responsibility. 332.
3. The jurisdiction of the accounting officers is limited to claims

arising on contracts express or implied and does not extend to a
claim for unliquidated damages, even though such claim does not

arise from the tort of an officer of the Government. 487.
