R. P. HIGGINS, ADMINISTRATOR.

LETTER FROM THE CHIEF CLERK OF THE COURT OF CLAIMS TRANSMITTING A COPY OF THE FINDINGS OF THE COURT IN THE CASE OF R. P. HIGGINS, ADMINISTRATOR OF JOHN P. HIGGINS, DECEASED, AGAINST THE UNITED STATES.

December 17,1917.— Referred to the Committee on Claims and ordered to be printed.

Court Of Claims, Clerk's Office,

Washington, December 15, 1917. The President Of The Senate.

Sir: Pursuant to the order of the court, I transmit herewith a certified copy of the findings of fact and conclusion filed by the court in the aforesaid cause, which case was referred to this court by the resolution of the United States Senate under the act of March 3, 1887, known as the Tucker Act.

I am, very respectfully, yours,

Saml. A. Putman, Chief Cleric Court of Claims.

(Court of Claims. Congressional, No. 14247-209. R. P. HIggins, administrator of John P. Higgins, deceased, v.. the United States.)

STATEMENT OP CASE.

This is a claim for travel allowances on discharge from the military service during the late Civil War.

On March 3, 1909, Senate bill 9501 was referred to this court by resolution of the United States Senate for proceedings under the act of March 3, 1887, known as the Tucker Act. The section of the bill which relates to this case reads as follows:

"sec. 2. That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to pay to each of the following persons named in this section, or if deceased to the party entitled thereto, the sum of $500, or so much thereof as may be necessary, being for travel allowance when honorably discharged from the military service of the United States, namely.

* * * John P. Higgins, * * *."

The claimant thereafter appeared in this court and filed a petition, in which it is alleged in substance: That he is a citizen of the United States, residing in the county of McLean, State of Illinois, and is the administrator of John P. Higgins, deceased.

That said decedent on June 19, 1862, was enrolled in the Eighty-fourth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, in Company A, and was honorably discharged as captain January 27, 1865.

That no subsistence in kind was furnished at time of his discharge, nor was free transportation given for the whole or any part of the journey from place of discharge to place of enrollment, and neither item was included in his final pay.

That he has a claim against the United States for $119.70 for travel allowances under the act of January 29, 1813 (2 Stats., 796), and War Department General Order No. 43, dated July 10, 1861, legalized by the act of August 6,1861 (12 State., 326), which order provides that—

"Commissioned officers of volunteers received into the service of the United States for two and three years, or for the period of the war, will be entitled to receive one day's pay and subsistence for every 20 miles of travel from the place of enrollment to the place of muster into service of the United States and from the place of discharge to the place of enrollment; the distance to be estimated by the most direct mail route."

The case was brought to a hearing on its merits on the 8th day of October, 1917.

C. D. Pennebaker, Esq., appeared for the claimant, and the Attorney General, by P. G. Walker, Esq., his assistant and under his direction, appeared for the defense and protection of the interests of the United States.

The court, upon the evidence and after considering the briefs and arguments of counsel on both sides, makes the following

FINDINGS OF FACT.

I. The claimant, R. P. Higgins, is a citizen of the United States, residing at Normal, 111., and is the administrator of the estate of John P. Higgins, deceased.

II. Said John P. Higgins was enrolled in the military service on June 19, 1862, at Macomb, 111., for three years in Company A, Eighty-fourth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and was discharged as captain January 27, 1865, at Huntsville, Ala., on resignation tendered on account of private business affairs.

III. Claimant's decedent rode on a Government train from Huntsville, Ala., to Nashville, Tenn. The evidence does not establish to the satisfaction of the court that transportation in kind from Nashville, Tenn., to Macomb, 111., or any part of the distance was not furnished said officer by the United States.

The travel pay of a captain of Infantry from Nashville, Tenn., to Macomb, 111., 693 miles, at tne rate of one day's pay for every 20 miles of travel between said places would amount to $69.30; and travel subsistence for an officer of the same grade from Huntsville, Ala., to Macomb, 111., 840 miles, at the rate of one day's subsistence (four rations per day) for every 20 miles of travel between said places would amount to $60.40. The internal-revenue tax on said amounts would be $5.98.

IV. A claim for travel allowances was presented to the accounting officers of the Treasury and disallowed for the reason that his resignation was tendered on account of private business affairs. Except as above stated the claim was never presented to any officer or department of the Government prior to the presentation to Congress and reference to this court, as hereinbefore set forth in the statement of the case.

Conclusion.

Upon the foregoing findings of fact the court concludes, on the authority of the case of Sweet v. United States (189 U. S., 471), that the claim herein is neither a legal nor an equitable one against the United States.

By The Court.
Filed October 22, 1917.
A true copy.

Test this December 15, 1917.
[seal.] Saml. A. Putman,

Chief Clerk

LORENZO H. HIGGINS
The Burlingame Enterprise, Thursday, Oct. 11, 1917, Pg. 1
L. H. HIGGINS.

The passing of a well known citizen is recorded in the death of L. H. Higgins, which occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mary White, about eight o"clock Tuesday morning. Mr. Higgins had been noticeably failing in health since his return from the national G. A. R. encampment at Boston in August. Cancer of the liver caused his death.

Lorenzo H. Higgins was born July 19, 1838, at Chesterfield, Hampshire Co., Massachusetts. With his oldest brother he came to Illinois, June 18, 1855, locating in Knox county, living part of the time at Oneida, and part of the time at Galesburg, until April 1859, when he went to Hoyleton, Washington county, Illinois, where on Sept. 4, 1861 he was united in marriage with Miss Susan Carter. Twelve children were born to this union, seven boys and five girls. Five of the children died in infancy, four boys and three girls growing to manhood and womanhood. Mrs. Higgins died Feb. 15, 1905, followed in about three months by her eldest son, Roy Higgins. The following named children are still alive to wit: Mrs. Celia Beckes, Wasco, Calif.; Frank S. Higgins, Spokane, Wash.; Capt. E. C. Higgins, Chicago, Ill.; Mrs. J. E. Castle, Topeka, Kansas; Mrs. Bert White, Burlingame, Kansas; Manley C. Higgins, Abbyville, Kansas.

On Sept. 4, 1861 he enlisted in Company C, 11th Illinois Infantry, re-enlisted March 31, 1864, and was transferred to the 67th U. S. Colored Infantry as Hospital Stewart, by order of the Secretary of War, and was finally discharged at Morganzia, Louisiana, Sept. 23, 1864, on account of disability, having served three years and twenty days. He was a prisoner of war eight months and two days, having been wounded and captured at Fort Donnelson, Tenn., Feb. 15, 1862, and was paroled from Libby Prison at Richmond, Virginia, on October 17, 1862.
He served three years as Township Clerk of Burlingame township and six years as City Clerk of the City of Burlingame. He united with the M. E. church at Galesburg, Ill., in March 1858, and was a member of the First Presbyterian church at Burlingame, Kansas at the time of his death, Oct. 9, 1917, having reached the age of seventy-nine years, two months and twenty days.
Funeral services will be held at 3:30 tomorrow (Friday) afternoon from the Presbyterian church and will be conducted by Rev. Davis.
