271 U.S. 121

Syllabus

1. Stipulations by the United States, in a construction contract, to furnish a right of way for ingress and egress to and from the places where materials to be furnished by the United States were stored and the place of their use in the work construed, in relation to other facts, as allowing the contractor to use a right of way on which was a railroad, but not as obliging the government to put the railroad in repair. P. 271 U. S. 122.

2. Damages will not be awarded for a slight delay in starting work under a contract, not satisfactorily shown to have been caused wholly by the government, where the contractor made no protest at the time and no claim until nine months later. P. 271 U. S. 124.

59 Ct.Cls. 582 affirmed.

Appeal from a judgment of the Court of Claims rejecting claims under a building contract.
