ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
An extra allowance to a contractor for carrying the mails, under the provisions of Rev.Stat. § 3961, for an increase of expedition in carrying them, is not invalidated by reason of the fact that, prior to its allowance, the contractor was voluntarily carrying them over the route, with the increased expedition, and at the contract rate of pay.
