In the case of Private John P. Donovan,
Company II, Thirteenth Infantry, who was
found guilty and sentenced to thrte
months' hard labor and lo pay a fine of
$10, Major Gen. Merritt, commanding the
Depart tr.ent of the East, has found it neces
sary to reprimand the court-martial winch
tried the case:
"In this case," says Gen. Merritt, irr
his review, "the piisoner, among oilier
things, wab charged under the twenty-first
article ot war with 'having received a law
ful command from liissuperioroffiC3r,Cajic-J-
C. Chance, Thirteenth Infantry, officer
of the dcy, to halt and be recognized, did
wilfully disobey the dame by rumiingaway.'
"The court liaving found the prisoner
guilty or the specification nudnot guilty of
violailOT or the twenty-first article of Avar,
but guPij of 'conduct to the prejudice of
good order and military discipline,' the
record ot the proceedings wis returned to
the court for reconsideration or its findiir-is
in this ret-pect. calling attention to tlie fact
that tbt specification sustained the original
charge, that a substitution of the geu ;ral
article lor the specific article could only
be rex-rtcd to in cases where the material
allpKiUlon in the specification as found did
not .ud;iin tlie charge as laid.
"Upon reconsideration the court excepted
in Hn fli-dings the words 'wiirully disobey
substiti ting ll.erefor the words 'fail to
obey and adhered to Its former findings
upon the charge. In the opinion of the le
viewing authciity t)je evidence adduced es-tablishi-f
the speclficatlpn as originally
found. Tin wilful disobedience in this ca--e
was exhibited b(y the soldier by simply not
doing what wn.j required of him. A failure
to obey ai order under such circumstances
s a wilful disobedience, and the court, in
lit" opinion or (he reviewing officer, shoul 1
have so ftunri. Subject to these remarks
and in ord-r that the prisoner may not es
cape v. ell-merit, ed punishment, the sen
tence is approved and will be duly executed
