ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT
OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
When the Commissioner of Pensions, in executing an instruction from the Secretary of the Interior to increase a pension, gives a construction to a statute which had not been construed by the Secretary, but which had been left open to the Commissioner to construe, mandamus does not lie to compel the Commissioner to give a different construction to it.
