The Paymaster General is, under the direction of the Secretary of War, charged with the military responsibility of the Pay Department in all its duties. The subordinate officers, being confined exclusively to the disbursement of public money, are subject only to the orders of the Secretary of War, the Paymaster General, and the senior officers of their own Department, except that they are liable to arrest by the senior officer of the Department, or command, to which they may be assigned for the regular payment of troops. The arrest of a paymaster will be immediately reported to the Paymaster General, in order that the case may be brought before the Secretary of War for such action as he may direct.
