The Power of Naval Conrts-martlal Th
Kentcnrciof DefllliR Paymaster Set
A aide by Secretary Ilobeson.
The follbwlnjr, Is the fall text of Secre
tary Robeson's late order touching late 83n
tences of a nay hi court-martial. From It,
it appears that a naval court-martial has
no power to punish embezzlement by flue
and imprisonment, and as the bonds of paymas
ters in the navy are only for 1 25, 000.
the remedr within the power of the United
States is limited to that amount, no matter
Low large a sum may be stolen:
NAVT DIPAKTMINT, WASHINGTON, March !.. A t
a Naval General Court-Martial, convened Oct ),
1870, at the Havy Yard, Washington, D. C, Panned
Assistant Paymaster Charles 11. Iockwood of the
navy was tried on the charge of "Hcandalous con
duct tending to the destruction or god murals"
and "rrrabeiinleinent," was found guilty of both
charges anil sentenced "to be dismissed from the
navy; to be imprisoned for nvc years in iiicn m'ki
place of confinement as the Secretary of the Navy
niay designate, and to be lined In the sum
of 2000." The sentenco In this caso, In common
with others of a kindred c haracter wnlch have been
tried by the snie court, presents for the consldera
tlon of the revising authority some quest ions of very
great doubt and diillculfv. It was tried by a court
of the highest Dsval authority, who have faithfully
endeavored to discharge their duty without preju
dice or favor and If they have failed to reach aright
conclusion In any particular, It has been by reason
of conflicting lvgal provisions and opinion, and In
ptirtult of a wise policy which accepted the con
struction moot adequate for the punishment of
wrong, and left to the revising authority all ques
tions of restricting Inferences aud want of power for
After some hesitation, I have arrived at the con
elu, ion that so much of the sentence In this case as
Imposes Due and Imprisonment is Illegal and cannot
be enforced. The act of July, Ihim, "fur the better
government Of the navy," whether giving to naval
court H-martlal the power to adjudge tlio punishment
f ii ath in certain specified canes further provide,
In A'tlcle , that in the particular canes where the
fiUshment might have been death, the sentence may
e imprisonment for life, or for a term ; and
that, in these cases, the sentences may
be carried Into execution In the penitentiaries
under the control of the United States,
or Jthe use of which may have been
allowed by the legislatures of the States. This Is
the only special provision of law applicable at this
tune which specifically confers upon naval courts
martial the power of Imprisonment as a punishment,
aid g.ves Die use of the civil prisons at the com
n.and of the Government for the carrying out of the
sentences of naval courts. This provision Is by Its
terms confined to certain specified offense of the
highest grades. The oilenscs proved in this casi,
though of a very serious natnre, affecting the
character of the service as well asthelnterebteof the
Government, are not among those for the punish
ment of which Congress has provided specially
In tnls article, lsy every principle of legal cou
Htmcllon the specific restrictions of the article re
ferred to limit the general powers given to naval
tribunals for the punishment of ether offenses not
Included under Its provisions, and the words,
"Such puulNhment as a court-martial shall ml
judge," when afterwards usel in the act, and refer
ring to offenses of a lower grade, not within the
limits of article six (0), must be held to mean noma
legal punishment other than that whleti is, In the
provisions of that article, submitted to those of a
higher grade. 'J his conclusion seems to me Inevit
able. The ruling of the department since the pas
sage of the act has generally been In accord nice
with It, and, lu a case great Importance,
Its propriety was maintained by
rny predecessor, against adverse opinion, with a
becoming steadfastness. l:ut the same conclusion
Is naturally reached on general principles. All the
general powers of punishment given ti naval
courts-martial are, of course, limited by the power
and means legally at the command of the depart
ment for their enforcement. They must be held to
refer only to such puniHhrnents as are sanctioned
by the laws, regulation, and customs of the service,
and they can never extend to such as the depart
ment has no proper or legal means of executing.
In this view the Impossibility of a pecuniary line, as
a punishment, It not within the general powers
riven to naval courts-martial by the act re
ferred to, since neither the ourt nor the
department have at their command process or
other means of enforcing and collecting It. The
sentence of Imprisonment for a term of years by a
naval court-martial as a punishment for an offense,
for the punishment of which the department has no
means of legal imprisonment legally at Its com
mand, Is, on the same principles, clearly nugatory.
The use of the public prisons for carrying inn exe
cution sentences of naval courts-martial Is given
only by article six (! of the act before referred to,
and la, by the specific restriction of that article, con
fined, as I have said, to offenses of the higher grade
therein referred to. This use Is not at the command
of the department for the punishment of the offenses
found In this esse.
The only other means of confinement at the com
mand of the department is In the confined prison
quarters on shipboard, or in some small cells which
are provided at the marine barracks in the various
navy yards. These are Intended and chiefly used
for short terms of punishment for the enforcement
of discipline, and for the temporary safe keeping of
prisoners held for trial for serious offenses Neces
sarily of narrow compass, and not constructed nor
Intended for the purposes of long imprisonment,
they are neither commodious nor secure, and have
not the proper arrangements to make them
healthful, beneficial, or humane. While crimi
nals of the highest grade, convicted on de
liberate trial by Jury, under the carefal pro
visions of the criminal law, are guarded In
their im prison aient by humane and wise laws, pro-
r t H t n n lir unit Punmlntlnil tliolr mvpal manful un4
physical health, and looking to their Improvement
and ultimate reiorm, i no not reel tnat imprisonment
for long terms In cells like those I have mentioned,
on the sentence of a court-martial, under the sum
mary processes of military jaw, for the offenses
found In this case, is either authorized by law, sanc
tioned by custom, or Justified by humanity. The
discipline of the naval service must be strict, the tri
bunals for Its enforcement must be summary, and
their l'gal sentences should be carried Into execu
tion without regard to technicalities which do not
anect the substantial rights of persons, or
the precedents of the service. But In cases
of serious question, for offenses not
against discipline or mere military

I am unwilling to exercise the discretion Imposed
upon me for the execution of such a sentence, the
legality of which Is doubtful when enforced by
military authority for offenses which may be par
sued aud properlv punished by the criminal court
or tne country, l he provisions oi me act or jso3,
which msy be cited to sustain this sentence, are
not. in my opinion, applicable under proper consti
tutional construction, and the restrictions of the
act Itself to thesa offenses at the tunes when they
are found to have been committed. If this
were otherwise, the same objection of want
of power of proper execution would apply
with equal force, since this act makes
no provision on mat sunj'tct. mere are other rea
sons of a some vv lint technical nature which might
seriously embarrass the execution of that part of
this sentence which imposes fUe and Imprisonment,
but 1 prefer to put my d clslcn ou the broader
grounds of lepal authority and proper admlnlHtra
tlon. The finding In thU case Is therefore sp;roved,
and so much of the sentence ef the court as sen
tences the accused to dismissal from the service is
approvta aim connnnea ; una so mucn or tne sen
tence ss sentences to One aud Imprisonment u dig.
vpproveci sou set asine.
The cases of Paymaster James H. Glraad and
Paymaster William O. Marcy were tried by the
same court for offenses of similar character, ami the
sentence in eacn memoes, ucsiriea dismisial from
the service, a lino and Imprisonment for a term of
years. In each of these cases to mncli of the Hen
tence of the court as sentences lh accused therein
to dismissal from the service Is approved aud con
firmed; and so much thereof as sentences them to
flue aud Imprisonment Is dUapproved and
set aside. At the same court Paymaster
Richard Washington was tried upon the charge
of ".Scandalous conduct tending to the
prejddlce of good morals, good order, and
naval discipline" and "embezzlement." aud upon an
"additional charge" preferred after the cominen je-
mentofMs trial or "neylect of duty." Tim facts
developed by the trial of this omcer preseit a case
materially different from what the department had
been led to auppoMi when the orst charges were
framed ; and the c-ourt lia.e found that the uialnaliH.
gallon against tlm, that he had converted the publto
money imrustea to niiu to bis on use, l
