U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Farenholt, 206 U.S. 226 (1907)

United States v. Farenholt

No. 277

Argued April 25, 1907

Decided May 13, 1907

206 U.S. 226


A court is not always confined to the written words of a statute; construction is to be exercised, as well as interpretation, and a statute will not be construed as giving higher pay to the inferior officer. Under the Navy Personnel Act of March 3, 1898, 30 Stat. 1007, and § 1466 Rev.Stat., passed assistant surgeons of the Navy, as well as assistant surgeons, rank with captains in the Army, and are entitled to the pay of a captain mounted.

41 Ct.Cl. affirmed.
