Aboard Ship?Firs? Case of the
Kind for Period of
No. 1417 O Street, N. W.,
Washington. D. C, May 2.
ft For the first time In sixty-odd years,
'..?the Navy Department will try a man for
an offense Involving the possible Infliction
. of the death penalty. The case in point
Is that of William Anthony, a colored
mess attendant on the Olympia, flagship
of .Rear Admiral Coghlan, commanding
the Caribbean, squadron now in the Nor?
folk harbor. Soveral months ago this man'
got into an altercation on board ship with
another enlisted oolorod man, and stabbed
him to death. It la alleged that tho de?
ceased provoked the assault by making
a vile charge against Anthony.
.??? Shortly after the occurrence, Rear-Ad
?'tnlral Coghlan appointed a court-martial
?tor the trial of.Anthony on the charge of
niurder. The'court convened at San
fjuan during the cruise of the Olympia,
but declined to proceed with the trial on
the ground that it had not Jurisdiction.
It was oontendod by the court that the
alleged offense having been committed
within the Jurisdiction of tho United
States was properly cognizable by the
civil courts. Rear-Admiral Coghlan Insist?
ed that the case was clearly within the
V Jurisdiction oi the naval court, but as
the court persistid In its stand, It was
deolded to withdraw the case from Its
further consideration and organize a new

burne, oommandlng the battleship Texas,

, of the Marine Corps, 1b Judge advocate,
will convene at Norfolk In a few days
for the trial of Ihe caso. The Olympia
is now In that harbor.
During the Mexican war. an enlisted
man In the navy was convicted of assault?
ing an officer, and was hanged from the
yard-arm os a result of court-martial
proceedings. Since then the death pen?
alty has never been Imposed In the navy
