COMPILATION OF GENERAL ORDERS, CIRCULARS, AND BULLETINS OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT,

1881–1915.

ARTICLE I. RESTRICTIONS ON ACTIVITIES OF OFFICERS AND

EMPLOYEES OUTSIDE REGULAR DUTIES.

1. Officers to refrain from publication of views on mili. tary situation.-Officers of the Army will refrain, until further orders, from giving out for publication any interview, statement, discussion, or article on the military situation in the United States or abroad, as any expression of their views on this subject at present is prejudicial to the best interests of the service. (G. 0. 10, 1915—2260070, A. G. O.)

2. Commercial interests in Philippine Islands.--Officers of the Army on the active list now or hereafter holding office or employment under the Philippine Government are hereby prohibited from entering into any commercial enterprise or from owning any stock or interest in, or having any connection with, any association, company, or corporation, whose activities come into contact with that Government or in any manner involve the use of, or any right, privilege, or concession in, the property or public rights of the Philippine people. And if any such officer be now engaged or interested in, or connected with, any such enterprise, association, company, or corporation, he will forthwith make a bona fide disposition of all his interest therein and sever all connection with such enterprise, associa. tion, company, or corporation. (Par. I, G. 0. 4, 1914–2116873, A. G. 0.)

3. Contributions for and acceptance of gifts or pres. ents.-The attention of officers and enlisted men is drawn to the following provision of the Revised Statutes :

1784. No officer, clerk, or employee in the United States Government employ shall at any time solicit contributions from

other officers, clerks, or employees in the Government service for a gift or present to those in a superior official position; nor shall any such officials or clerical superiors receive any gift or present offered or presented to them as a contribution from persons in Government employ receiving a less salary than themselves; nor shall any officer or clerk make any donation as a gift or present to any official superior. Every person who violates this section shall be summarily discharged from the Government employ.

The foregoing enactment includes within the statutory prohibition the soliciting of contributions by one officer or employee from other officers or employees of the United States when such contributions are to constitute gifts or presents or are to be used for the purchase of gifts or presents to those in superior official position. The receiving of presents by officers as contributions from those under their command or control, in either the military or civil service, also falls within the prohibition of the section, which imposes the penalty of summary dismissal upon all official superiors and those under their command or control who, by soliciting or receiving contributions, or by giving presents, become subject to its penal operation.

The practice of receiving presents from persons not in the military establishment or in the employ of the Government in recognition of services rendered, though not expressly forbidden, is opposed to the spirit of the statute and for that reason is not approved by the department.

The requirements of the statute above cited will hereafter be strictly observed in all branches of the military establishment. (Cir. 46, 1904, as amended by Cir. 197, 1909–1584316, A. G. 0.)

4. Instruction of persons for Civil Service and other examinations.-No officer or employee of the Government shall, directly or indirectly, instruct or be concerned in any manner in the instruction of any person or classes of persons, with a view to their special preparation for the examinations of the United States Civil Service Commission or of the boards of examiners for the diplomatic and consular services.

The fact that any officer or employee is found so engaged shall be considered sufficient cause for his removal from the service. (Executive Order, Oct. 13, 1905, G. 0. 183, 1905– 1065280, M. S. 0.; Executive Order, Dec. 23, 1910, Par. II, G. 0. 5, 1911-1731023, A. G. O.)
