under the United States Government.”—The officers of the United

" States Soldiers' Home, namely, the governor, deputy governor, and secretary, are persons "holding a civilian office or position

tude “is defined as anything done contrary to justice, honesty, principle, or good morals;

Moral turpitude implies something immoral in itself, regardless of the fact whether it is punishable by law. It must not merely be mala prohibita, but the act itself must be inherently immoral. The doing of the act itself, and not its prohibition by statute, fixes the moral turpitude." 294.
