Argued and submitted April 15, 1903.
Decided April 27, 1903.
Assistant Attorney General Pradt and Franklin W. Collins for appellant.
Messrs. George A. King and William B. King for appellee.
Mr. Justice Holmes delivered the opinion of the court:
This is the case of an enlisted man who makes a claim similar to the above, under Rev. Stat. 1290 (U. S. Comp. Stat. 1901, p. 916), as amended. He was discharged on his own application, and the order of discharge stated that he was not entitled to travel pay. The foregoing reasoning also governs this case.
