Employment by United States of employee of Philippine government.
An employee of the Philippine government is not an employee
of the United States within the meaning of the prohibition in
section 1765, Revised Statutes, against the payment of addi-
tional or extra compensation, and therefore the payment by
the United States of compensation to an employee of the
Philippine government for services rendered the United
States is not prohibited by said section. 702.
Employment, expert mechanics. See CENSUS OFFICE, expert.

Employments, holding two at one time.
Neither the position of clerk to the Senate Committee on Foreign
Affairs nor that of secretary to the Senate Office Building
Commission being an office, within the meaning of section
1765, Revised Statutes, and they being separate and distinct
employments, the compensation of neither of which is fixed
by law or regulation, service rendered in either position
while holding the other would not be “extra services"
within the meaning of sections 1764 and 1765, Revise!
The employment by the Secretary of the Interior of a retired
officer of the Army whose compensation is in excess of $2,500
per annum for special services in connection with the dis.
bursement of funds to the Omaha Indians is authorized, pro-
vided the compensation of the position to which it is proposer!
to appoint him is fixed by regulation of the Department prior
to the date of his appointment thereto. 721.
The act of July 31, 1894, which provided that no person who
holds an office the salary or annual compensation attached to
which amounts to the sum of $2,500 shall be appointed to or
hold any other office to which compensation is attached, has
reference to an office having a fixed compensation of at least
said amount, and does not apply to an office the compensa-
tion of which is fixed by fees for particular services, even
where the amount of such fees earned exceeds $2,500 per
annum; and therefore a captain in the Army receiving com-
pensation of less than $2,500 per annum is not prohibited
from holding at the same time the office of clerk of a l'nited
States circuit court; but if his compensation as captain on the
retired list amounts to more than $2,500 per annum he would
be prohibited from holding both of said offices at the same

Office, removal from, of associate justice of Territorial supreme court.
Where an associate justice of the supreme court of the Territory
of New Mexico was removed by the President, and was noti-
fied of that fact prior to the subsequent revocation of the
order of removal, he thereby ceased to be an officer, and was
not entitled to the salary of said office after the receipt by
him of said notice, nor did the subsequent revocation of the
order of removal operate to reinstate him. 349.
The provision in section 1864, Revised Statutes, that associate
justices of Territorial supreme courts “sball hold their offices
for four years, and until their successors are appointed and
qualified,” is a limitation upon their term of office and not a
restriction upon the President's power of removal. 349.

Office, removal from “to take effect immediately."
Where a marshal was removed from office, and the removal was

writing, as provided by section 3744, Revised Statutes. 604.

being in the nature of a tort for which the United States is
not liable. 489.
