GEN. BUTLER'S CAREER.
UKNKRAI. M'COOK'S OPINION OF
He Was Not a Soldier, bat Possessed
High Administrative Powers
and Ability in Many
"I cannot give you much of an opinion
about General Buthr," said General
McCook yesterday to a Herald reporter
in response to an inquiry, "for I never
met him, and what I think of him Is
based on hearsay evidence, Yotl ask
what I think of him as a soldier. Ido
not think he was a soldier; as far as I
remember, he never commanded a line
of battle or issued an order in the field.
Of course what I know or think of him
is based entirely on beareay evidence, as
I never served with him, never really
knew him, and only saw him on one oc
casion, when we both took breakfast at
Willard's hotel in Washington, he at
one table and I at another.
"As an administrative officer, his
success at New Orleans putß his reputa
tion beyond question. His administra
tion of affairs in that city was produc
tive of good. His hanging of Mumford
for hauling down tbe flag at the custom
house has been criticized, but that was
tbe time for severe measures, and they
resulted in much good throughout that
part of tbe south.
"He was essentially a governor, rather
than a soldier, and as I have said, he
seemed to have been born to take charge
at New Orleans.
Butler was a moat peculiar man but in
all particulars Bhowed an able mind.
He showed his erratic nature in his
opinion of West Point graduates. In
his talk and in his look he spoke in a
most derogatory manner of Weat Point
era, yet he always surrounded himself
with them, if I remember right an over
whelming majority of his subordinates
being from that school.
"I have always held a high opinion of
General Butler, because of my complete
confidence in the justness and correct
ness of President Lincoln's judgment;
Mr. Lincoln I knew relied very much on
Butler's opinion, and frequently con
sulted with him and asked his advice.
As a politician, as an administrator, aa a
lawyer, and as an able man Butler
stands high, and it is not derogatory of
him to Bay that he was not a soldier.
He might have been if he had had the
opportunity, but he served his country
well and ably wherever he found him

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 1893.
WILLIAM PAUL'S REGISTRATION.
Judge Smith Holda the Grand
Jury a Legal Body.
Two Brief Opinions Received from
the Supreme Court.
Happenings Ycterday In the Courts.
Caamaa F. and Guilty—Nutas
<jf Cases Acted On.
Judge Smith yesterday overruled the
demurrer in the case of William Paul,
charged with illegal registration. The
principal point which counsel raised
was that the graL.d jury which returned
the indictment against the defendant
was illegally drawn and impaneled, the
same poiuta having baen raised in other
cases now pending in the 'superior court.
Judge Smith, in overruling the de
murrer, handed down the following
opinion in the case :
The motion to set aside, though cover
ing much ground, may be condemned
under three heads.
First —That the indictment is not
found, indorsed and presented as pre
scribed in the code.
Second —That the memberß of the
grand jury who found the indictment
were bo biaeed and prejudiced against
the defendant as to prevent them from
acting impartially in the matter.
Third —That the grand jury waß an
As to the first objection, by an in
epection of tbe indictment it seems to
comply in every portion with sections
940, 943, 944, It was properly found,
indorsed and-presented in accordance
with those sections. Irregularities in
selecting, summoning and impaneling
the jury cannot be considered under
that head. (See People vs. Southwell,
46 Oal. Z4l, People vs. Colby, 64 Cal. 37,
and People vs. Hunter, 54 Cal. 65.)
Second, that the grand jury was
biased, etc. Under this head counsel
contends that because the same grand
jury that found the indictment in ques
tion had previously indicted the defend
ant for the same offense and it bad been
set aside for informality and resubmit
ted to them, that therefore they must
have been convinced of his guilt at the
time it was bo resubmitted, and there
fore disqualified under sec 896 Penal
Code, which provides for right of chal
lenge for actual bias. But it must be
remembered that this is tbe seme case
first submitted to the grand jury, that
there is no pretense of any bias against,
defendant when the grand jury was im
paneled, and it is plain that as a general
rule challenges must be interposed at
tbe time of impaneling a jury, and only
when defendant has not been held to
answer for the same offense can a chal
lenge be interposed afterwards; but tbe
challenge must be confined to tbe state
of mind of the juror at the time the
grand jury ia impaneled. Were it
otherwise, it would result in an inquiry
into all testimony and proceedings com
ing before them after their organization,
which would destroy the very object for
which a grand jury is (impaneled.
Besides, section 997 penal code,
in providing for cases where
indictments have been eet aside use
thia lauguage, "unless it," meaning the
court, "directs that the case bo re
submitted to the same or another grand
jury." See People vs. Henderson, 28
Cal., 465; People vs. Turner, 39 Cal.,
370, and People vs. Colmere, 23 Cal.,
639, which, though not deciding the
Question, still throw much light on the
Third —That the grand jury was an
illegal body. Under this head connsel
has advanced several causes. The view
taken by the court renders it unneces
sary to enter into a detailed considera
tion of these.
None of the causes urged by counsel
under this head come within the letter
or spirit of the causes enumerated in
the code upon which a motion to set
aside may be predicated. Tbe causes
upon which a motion to eet aeide an in
dictment may be based are specifically
enumerated in section 995, penal code,
and for these and none other can euch
motion be sustained. People vs. South
well, 46 Cal., 141; People vs. Schmidt,
64 Cal., 260; and many other cases to
the same effect are found in our reports.
Defendant's contention that tbe court
had no right to order the resubmission
of the case to tbe grand jury for the rea
son that the case was not dismissed at
the instance of defendant, but on mo
tion of plaintiff, must be untenable.
Proceedings before grand jurieß were
never a bar to another or second prose
cution. They are purely ex parte, and
until trial begun before petit jury, no
jeopardy attaches. So that the motion
to act aside must be overruled, and it is

In the case of Spence vs. Scott, the
court says: "Upon further considera

and for reesons stated in said opinion,

In tbe case of the people of the
statu of California, reepondent, vs.
John Moran, appellant, the court, in
denying the motion for a reversal, says:
"The clerk, by mistake, having failed
to make a record of the filing of appel
lant's brief in the foregoing action, it
was not brought to the attention of tbe
court upon the consideration of the
merits of the appeal. Appellant now
moves to set aside tbe judgment and
grant a rehearing of the cause for that
reason. Upon an examination of tbe
specifications of error relied upon by
appellant's brief, we find nothing to
justify a reversal of the judgment. Let
the motion be denied.
A Fresh Boy.
Yesterday afternoon Fred Kossner, a
boy 16 yeara old, was before Judge
Smith, charged with being an incorrig
ible. Hie mother, a Mrs. Rice, was
present and told the judge how bad the
young fellow was. She wae unable to
control him and he would neither go to
school nor learn a trade. The boy was
examined by tbe court and displayed a
precocious depravity that very well
justified the sentence of the court of
three years at the Whittier school. The
boy was perfectly self-possessed and was
not at all affected by the evident dis
tress of his mother. When Judge
Smith committed him he coolly asked
him if that was all, and when his moth
er tried to get some expression of feel
ing out of him at their parting the un
gracious young fellow poshed her away
and would not bid ber good bye. His
callousness to any feeling waa remarked
by everyone in the court room, and did
not leave a very good impression upon
those who law it.
Francisco Guzman was tried in de
partment one of the superior court yes
terday upon the charge of burglarizing
the houee of Francisco Hernandez, at
Azuea, on the night of October 21st laet.
Hernandez went out of his house, and
although he came back very soon, Guz
man had in tbe meantime pushed open
a window, took a valise and several arti
cles and got away for the time. In the
valise were two $10 bills. He was ar
rested and has awaited his trial for some
time. The facts was very clear against
him and he was found guilty of burglary
in the first degree. Tuesday next being
fixed for tbe time for sentence.

davlt Which will Be Framed

Mr. Amos Eddy of Compton aenda in
to the chamber of commerce, for tbe
world's fair, seven cuttings of alfalfa
which make an aggregate of 21 feet in
length. The specimens represent re
spectively seven months' growth ; and
for fear the astonishing growth be
doubted, Mr. Eddy accompanies it with
the following affidavit:
State of California, county of Los An
geles; Amos Eddy, first being sworn,
deposes and says that be is a farmer
residing at Compton, county of Lob An
geles, Btate of California, and is the
owner and occupant of a ranch of said
place, consisting of about 27 acres and
has resided toereon for tbe past 20
years and cult: vated the same; that the
seven packages of alfalfa hay here ex
hibited, were grown and raised by him
on said ranch and are specimens and
samples of each of tha seven cuttings
during the year 1892, respectively, on
the same land during said year and are
a fair average of the whole field of about
18 acres; that the field as aforesaid
yielded, for the seven cuttings during
said year, about 10 tonß to the acre,
without any irrigation whatever. That
the bales or packages here exhibited are
only a fair average aa to quality of the
crops cut in this neighborhood; that the
soil is alluvial, made by the overflow of
the Los Angeles river, in years ago.
That seven full crops or cuttings each
year is about the average for tbe past 10
years, in this section. Amos Eddy.

a bunch of dates, the berries of which
excel anything of the kind that has
ever been exhibited in the chamber of

display jars to hold them. They will be
processed and cent forward with the
balance of tbe exhibits to Chicago.
C. M. Wells writes from San Francisco
that tbe spaces had been* virtually al
lotted for California's exhibit of fruits
in the horticultural building, and being
very unsatisfactory tbe supposition is
tbat a reallotment will be made and the
space for the citrus exhibit will be as
signed in bulk, thus giving a better op
portunity for displaying the citrus
fruits. He also writes that the rules
governing quantities are ready, awaiting
the approval of the board, and will be
out inside of a month. Tbe different
organizations have been waiting on these
rules for tbe lust six months, as they
will determine materially what each in
dividual will be required to prepare in
tbe special departments.
At the laet meeting of the state com
mission it was decided to hold a meeting
of three of the members within a
month in Los Angeles to pass upon the
southern exhibit. In consequence of
thia meeting all persons having world's
fair goods that are ready will report im
mediately to their various organizations.
