Note 1.- When an officer is transferred, as authorized by this section, the causes for his retirement determine the rate of his pay under section 1588. An officer retired on furlough pay from causes not incident to the service can not be transferred to the 75 per cent pay list. If so transferred by nomination and confirmation, it would not be the duty of the accounting oflicer to pay him 75 per cent of sea pay. (Op., XVI, p. 23, Deveng, May 29, 1878)

Note 2.-An act approved January 30, 1875, v. 18, p. 304, allows difference of pay to certain officers, or their heirs, who were furlonghed under tho act of February 28, 1855, and subsequently restored to the active list.

Note 3.--Additional allowances for subsistence may be legally made to officers of the Army or Navy while employeil on Coast Survey service. The word "pay"in section 4681, Coast Survey, Division III, refers to the pay proper of an officer. (Op., XV, p. 283, Devens, May 23, 1877.)
