lerter's0" thG ACt D,sfranch-
mo rn,.r f D. .
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.'
I Tuba' vs. Ilihy.
Officers of election have no authority
to try a question of alledged desertion.
A person alledged to be a deserter from
the army can only be deprived of his
I rigni to vote alter a trial and conviction
1 by a Court Martial.
j Eniiou to the Court of Common Pleas of
j Franklin Counfi. The opinion of the
j Court was delivered by Strong, J.
j The fifth article of the amendments to
the constitution ordains "that no person
shall be held to answer for a capital or
ther infamous crime, unless on a present
ment, or indietmcnt of a grand jury, ex
cept i: cases arising in the land or naval
forces, or in the militia, when in actual
service, in time of war or actual danger,
nor shall any person be subject for the
same ollence to be twice put in jeopardy
of life or limb ; nor shall he be compelled
in any criminal case to be a. witness
against himself, nor be deprived of life,
liberty or property without due process of
law." "The sixth article secures to the
accused in all criminal prosecutions cer
tain rights, among which are a speedy
and public trial, by a jury of the vicinage,
information of the nature and cause of
the accusation, face to face present with
the witness against him, compulsory pro
cess for his own witnesses, and the as
sistance of counsel- The spirit of these
constitutional provisions is briefly that no
person can be made to suill-r for a crim
inal offence unless the penalty be inflicted
1 by due process of law. It ordinarily im
plies and includes a complainant, a de
fendant and a judge, regular allegations,
opportunity to answer, and a trial ac
cording to soma settled course of judicial
proceeding. It must be admitted there
arc a few exceptional cases. Prominent
i among these are summary proceedings to
recoer uue 10 me government, especially
taxes and sums due by defaulting public
officers. Hut I can call to mind no in
stance in which it has been held that as
certainment of cuilt of a public offence,
and the imposition of legal penalties, can
be in any other mode than by trial ac-
. cording to law of the land, that is the
law of the particular case, administered
by a judicial tribunal authorized to ad
judicate upon it. And I cannot persuade
myself that a jode of elections or a
Ixtard of election officers, constituted un
der State laws, is such a tribunal. I can
not think they have power to try criminal
offenders still less to adjudge the "taUt or
innocence of an alledged violator of the
laws of the United States. A trial be
fore pnch officers is not due process of
law for the punishment of offences, ac
cording to meaning of that phrase in the
constitution. There are it true many
things which they may determine, such as
the age and residence of a person offering
to vote, whether he has paid taxes, and
whether if born an alien he has a certifi
cate of naturalization. These things per
tain to the ascertainment of a Doliticnl
i right. Uut whether he has been "uilty
ot a criminal offence, and has as a' con-
sequence, forfeited his light, is an inquiry
j of a different character. Neither our
i constitution nor our law has conferred
I upon the judges of elections any such iu-
uu-i:u i ion nous. 1 1 icy are not sworn to
try issues in criminal cases. They have
no power to compel the attendance of
witnesses, and their judgment if rendered
would be binding upon no other tribunal.
Even if they were-to assume 'jurisdic
tion of the offence described in the act of
Congress, and proceed to try whether the
applicant for a vote had been duly en
rolled and drafted, whether he had re
ceived notice of the draft, whether he de
serted and failed to return to service or
failed to report to a Provost Marshal, and
whether lis had justifying reasons for
such failure, aud if after such trial they
w-ore to decide that b? had not forfeited
his citizenship all this would not amount
to an acquittal. It would not protect him
against a subsequent similar accusation
and trial. I would not protect him
against trial and punishment by a court
Surely that is no trial by due process of
law, the judgment in whieh is not final,
decides nothing, but leaves the accused
exposed to another trial in a different tri
bunal and to the imposition by that other
tribunal of the full punishment prescribed
In looking through the . numerous acts
of Congress relating to desertion from
military or naval service it is plainly to
be seen that they all contemplate a regu
lar trial and conviction prior to the inflic
tion of any penalty, and court martial are
I constituted and repmlatcd for sucli trials.
VV a-l war' Mc OQ
I !? 1.0lh ot, AP"' 1800, (lh iohtly'sDig.,
1 ,s ,n thcs words: All oiHcers and
soldiers who have received pay, or have
been duly enlisted in the service of the
United States, and shall he convicted of
having deserted, tho same shall suffer
j death or such other punishment as by
j sentcttce of court martial shall be inflicted."
: Other enactments have been made at
j different times respecting the punishments
i to be inflicted for the offence. The pun-
ishmcnt of Lath in time , of peace was
; abolished in 1830. Corporeal punishment
ny stripes was abclisncil by the act of
May 10, 1812, and by the act of March
2d, 1833, that section of the repealing
act. was itse'f repealed, "so far as it ap
plies to any enlisted soldier who shall be
convicted I; a general court martial of' the
crimes of desertion." ly the act of Janu
ary 11, 1S12, an additional penalty was
prescribed for desertion, and it was de
clared that " such soldier shall and may
be tried by a court martial and punished."
Hrightly's Dig., 89. The 13th section of
the act of March 3d, 18"3, which de
clared that any person luiting to report
after due service of notice that he had
been drafted, shall be deemed a deserter,
enacted thet such a person " shall be ar
rested by the Provost Marshal and sent
to the nearest military post for trial hij
Court Martial, unless upon proper show
ing that he is not liable to military duty,
tho board of enrollment shall relieve him
from the dri'ft. All these nets of Con
gress manifestly contemplate trial for de
sertion by court marsha'l and the infliction
of no punishment or forfeiture, except
upon conviction and sentence in such
courts. The act of 180G provided for
general courts martial, and made minute
and careful regulations for their organiza
tion, for the conduct of their proceedings,
and for the approval or disapproval of
their sentences. Subsequent acts made
some changes, but they have not restrained
the jurisdiction or diminished the powers
of such courts.
It is to such code of laws, forming a
system devised for the punishment of de
sertion, tha 21st section of the act of
March 3d, lSGo, was added. It refers
plainly to pre-existing laws. I: has the
single object of increasing the penalties,
but it does not undertake to change cr
dispense with the machinery provided for
punishing the crime. The comjucn rules
of construction demand that it be read as
if it had been incorporated into the former
acts. And if it had been, if the act of
1800, audits supplements prescribed that
penalty for des rtion or failure to report
within a designated time after notice of
draft (which the act of 18G3 declares de
sertion) .shouid be punished on conviction
of the same with forfeiture of citizenship
and death, or in lieu of the latter such
other punishment as by the sentence of a
court-martial-inny be inflicted, would any
one contend that any portion of this pun
ishment could be inflicted without convic
tion and sentence ? Assuredly not. And
if not, so must the act of 18G5 be con
strued now. It moans that the forfeiture
which it prescribes like all other penalties
for desertion, must be adjudged to the
convicted person after trial by a court -martial
and sentence approved. For the
conviction and sentence of such a, court
there can be no substitute. They alone
establish the guilt of the accused, and
fasten upon him the legal consequences,
v:,,!, tliink is the tr ue moaning of the
act, a construction that cannot Ik; denied
to it without losing sight ot all ttie pre- j
vious legislation respecting the same sub- i
ject matter, no part of which does this
act profess to alter.
It may be added that this construction
is not only required by the universally
admitted rules of statutory interpretation,
but itis in harmony with the personable
rights secured by the constitution, and
which Congress must be presumed to have
kept in view. It gives to the accused a
trial before sworn JuJges, a right to chal
lenge, an opportunity of defence, the
privelege of hearing the witnesses against
him, and of calling witnesses in his be
half. It preserves to him the common
law presumption of the innocence, until
he has been adjudged guilty according to
the forms of law.
It gives finality to a single trial. If
tried by a court-martial and acquitted,
his innocence can never again be called
in question, and he can be made to suffer
no part of the penalties prescribed for
guilt. On the other hand, if a record of
conviction by a lawful court be not a pre
requisite to suffering the penalty of the
law, the act of Congress may work intol
erable hardships. The accused will thus
be obliged to prove his innocence w.henevcr

renowni!' Lis ile-
fence at every . subsequent election, and
each time with increased difficulty arising
from the possible death or absence ol
witnesses. In many cases this may prove
a gross- wrong. It cannot be doubted
that in some instances there were causes
that prevented a return to service or a
report, by persons registered as deserters
by Provost Marshals, that would have
been held justifying reasons by a court
martial, or at least would have prevented
an approval of the court's sentence. It is
well known also that sjme who were
registered deserters, were at the time ac
tually in the military service as volun
teers, nr. 1 honorably discharging their du
ties to the govcn.uu nt. To hold that
the act of Congress iir poses upon such
the necessity of proving their innocence
without any conviction of guilt, would be
an unreasonable construction of the act,
and would be attributing to the national
legislature an intention not warranted by
the language and connection of the enact
ment. It follows that the judgment of the
A. t 1 . .
conn ueiow upon tne case stated was i
right. The plah.tiff
convicted of desertion-
mm io me service or id renort to a l'ro-
vost Mar.-h d, and not having been sen
tenced to the penalties ami forfeitures of
the law, was cn:i:; d to vote.

judgment of the Court of Common Pleas
