- That -is an interesting decision at St.
! Louis, of tlie "United States Circuit Court
yy 0 i Appeals, to the^ effect that
of the regular army, are pot. competent
to T=it on courts-martial . for the " trial ( of .
officers and soldiers of the.' .volunteer
forces.' . X sustained it will; liberate,^ it
is said, some two hundred former mem-;
bc-rs of tile' volunteer army are con
fined in Federal; prisons on/sentences im-;,
, posed by courts-martial of regular offi
cers', and -will, we suppose, constitute: a
fresh" precedent in military^ jurisprudence.'
.The particular case, in which the St.
Louis decision was rendered .; is that : of
Peter C/ Deming, a former captain' of;
United States Volunteers, -against Robert
W. MeClauglirey, warden, of the' Federal
penitentiary at Fort- Leayemvorth. Dem-;
ing was a captain in the'subsistence^de
.partment : bf the volunteer .army. He,
was commissioned, under the ; act 1599,. ;
providing, for the 'enlistment .of : soldiers,
for- the 'Philippine war. IT he -.charge
against him related: to ,'iiis accounts...The
court-martial, composed of nine- officers
of the regular, army,; dismissed. him from
the service, and sentenced him; to three
years in the penitentiary. : This sentence
was affirmed by the Secretary of j- War /
and approved, by the President: The ; case . j
was first brought in'r the ■ United^ States ■. j
Circuit Court for ' the District of Kan-, j
; sas, and was "d c-cided a gainst Deming; j
who ■'; then appealed to the • Circuit Court j
of Appeals in Stl Loujs. Tlie opinion of this |
court, as was > reported yesterday, . is -.that
the court-martial which" sentenced Dem-,' j
■ ing acted in violation' of Article 77. 0f the |
' Articles of War, which. provides that- of- . :
;.- ficers' of ■the .regular army shall not; be.
competent to sit on courts-martial for
irie' trial of officers and soldiers: of other
forces. The essential question,- according:
to the bpinioiC is w-hethcr .volun- : uthe :
teer . army, is the same :; as the " regular ,:
army, orwhether it is one. of the "other
forces" • mentioned in 'Article -77, and the>
court holds that the- volunteer army; is
at all times distinct from, the regular:
army. .The 'decision • therefore .is that ,
the court-martial. sn> the Deming. - case
was illegally, constituted, and._ that the :
action of that tribunal; is ' consequently
void.. ■ .:"._•;: vi . ." " "
: In June. ISUS, it seems, Judge- Advocate-
General Lieber decided that regular army !
■ officers -I "might ■..trjj volunteers,; under the j
act of IS9S, providing, for; the enlistment:!
of soldiers for. the' Spanish war, and under |
.this, ruling; many cases; have be-en ; tried.i
"and sentences imposed. Deming case
■is the first - ! oiie ■in which y an appeal ■; has
been takon. The result is that Deming;
will probably be ■ released ■; within sixty
; days, ; and. a. number of ..v other. ; soldiers
conniied in penitentiaries under sentences,
imposed by similar . courts_ will probably;
, make . application' for.- release .under tlie
St. Louis decision. ■.;' ■■■■-..
