Syllabus

Section 5 of the Act of April 16, 1908, 35 Stat. 61, c. 345, providing for rank and pay of retired officers of the Revenue-Cutter Service held not to give in this case an additional step forward to a retired officer who had already been advanced one step gratuitously.

The Court in this case follows the construction of the statute by the officers of the Treasury Department.

46 Ct.Cl. 393 reversed.

The facts, which involve the construction of the Act of April 16, 1908, and the amount of pay due thereunder to an officer in the Revenue-Cutter Service, are stated in the opinion.
