"Provided, nevertheless, That whenever the duties of a governor, sheriff, deputy, or special deputy, or other officer of a court in criminal proceedings, either before or after final judgment, require travel, or transportation of prisoners, or furnishing food for prisoners, in whole or in part outside the province of the governor, sheriff, or deputy, or other officer, in such case the officer performing the service, transporting the prisoners, and furnishing food for them, shall receive a compensation of two dollars per day, in money of the United States, or its authorized equivalent, for each day necessarily employed in performing the service, and the actual necessary expenses incurred in traveling and in transporting prisoners, and in furnishing food for them, and no more. If the officer performing the service in the transportation of prisoners requires assistance for guarding the prisoners, it shall be furnished by the Insular Constabulary, without additional compensation, the actual necessary expenses incurred in traveling, by the member or members of the Insular Constabulary performing this service to be paid by the officer and be reimbursed as in case of other expenses of the service."
And by adding at the end of said section one the following words: "The auditing herein provided for is subject to the provisions of subdivision six of section one of Act Numbered One hundred and thirty-three, amending the Provincial Government Act."
