Among tho wituoaeea examined was Esquimaux Joe, No Intimation has yet been Riven from oßlolal sources of tho character of tho testimony. TUB ATTOnNEI-OEHEUAIi ON TUB MODOO QUESTION. Tho following Is tho decision of tho Attorney-General in relation to the Modoc captives : Detauxmcnt ov Justice, Washington, D. 0„\ Juno 1,1613. f To the President Sin: l have the honor to acknowledge the receipt from you of several papers relative to tho Modoc In dians now In custody of tho United Slates Army, with a request for my opinion ao to tho outhorlty to try certain of the prisoners by military tribuna'. Tho main facts out of which tho question arises aro those : In 1804 tbo United States made a treaty with these Indians, by tho terms of which they woro to go aud remain upon a reservation In tho State of Oregon. Late last fall, tho Indians being away from their reser vation, a military detachment was sent to procure their return. Finding them unwilling to go peacefully, tho officer Indicated his determination to use compulsion, in consequence of which a conflict ensued between tho United States troops aud tho Indians. Soon after sev eral peaceful citizens aud tholr famines In tho vicinity wore murdered by tho Indians of this band. They then entrenched themselves In tho lava-heda in tbo neighborhood. Fighting ensued, and one or more severe battles took place, lu which persons on both sides wero wounded and killed, and tho United States troops repulsed. Pending hostilities, negotiations woro opened for peace, and on tho 16th of April last Gcu. Cunby, tho Rev. Sir. Thomas, and Mr. Moacham, I ct a point between tho opposing forces, nod I in pursuance of mutual agreement to that cud, met Oapt, Jack, the loader of tho (Indians, with some of his chief warriors, to discuss tho terms of tho treaty, and, while so en gaged, Gen. Cauby and Mr. Thomas were treacher ously murdered, aud Mr. Moacham severely wounded by tho Indians present on that occasion. Battles fol lowed, and Capt. Jack and all or most of his tribe have been captured, and arc now In tho bauds of tbo military authorities. Gen, Sherman, in a communi cation to tho Secretary of Wer, dated the 3d lust., rev commends that such of these Indians os have violated the military law bo tried by a military tribunal. This recommendation la approved by tho Secretary of War. Instructions woro prepared lu 1803 by Francis Lolbor, XJj. D.. revised by a Board of Ofllcers, of which Oeu. E. A. Hitchcock was President, and, after approval by the President of the United Status, woro puoUohod for tho government of the armies of tho United States lu tho field. Section 13 of these Instructions Is os fol lows : Military Jurisdiction Is of two kinds. First—That which is conferred and defined by statute. Second— That which is derived from tho common law of war. Military offenses under statute law must bo tried in the manner therein decided, but military offenses which do not come within tho statute must bo tried aud pun ished under tho commou law of war. Tho character of tho courts which exorcise these jurisdictions de pends upon tho local laws of each particular coun try. In the armies of tbo United States tho first Is exer cised by Courts-Martial, while cases which do not come within tbo rules and articles or jurisdiction conferred by statute on Courts-Martial are tried by Military Commissions. All authorities which I have been able to examine upon this subject harmonize with these instructions. According to the laws of war, there Is nothing more sacred than a flag of truce dispatched in good faith, oud there can bo no greater act of perfidy and treach ery than the assassination of its bearers, after they hare been acknowledged and received by those to whom they aro sent. No statute of tho United States makes this acta crime, and, therefore, it Is not pun ishable under the rules aud articles of war, and, if punishable at all, must be through a power derived from tho nsages-of war. Kludrcd to tho act in question of bad faith la tho breaking of his parole by a paroled prisoner. When tho United States wero at war with Mexico, several officers of tho Mexican army woro tried by a Military Commission, composed of officers of tho United States Army, and convicted and sentenced to ho shot and executed for breaking tholr parole. Numerous trials of a similar nature took place during tho war of the Rebellion, but there aro no statutory provlsous whatever upon the subject, and tho whole power of tho military authori ties In such coses Is derived from tho usages of war. On tho 23d of August, 1805, a military commission, duly appointed, assembled lu tho City of Washington for tho trial of Henry Wurz, who pleaded, among other things, that tho Military Commission bad no Ju risdiction over cither his person or over tho subject matter of tho charges and specifications, being a tri bunal iby {either statute, military ' law, martial law, or well-established usage. But this plea was overruled, and bo was convicted upon several charges, ouo of which wus murder in violation of tho laws and customs of war, aud after his sentence he was hung for his crimes. AU tho proceedings in this case derived their authority aud validity from tho common law of war. Certain persons, it will bo remembered, wero tried and convicted in tho same way for tho Bcsasaluation of President Lincoln. Attorney-General Speed, in discussing this subject (Opinions, vol. U., p, 2571. says; wo have scon that when war comes the laws and usages of war come also, and that during war they aro part of tho laws of tho loud. Under tho Constitution, Congress may define and punish offences against those laws, hut in default of Congress defining those laws and prescribing a pun ishment for their Infraction and mode of proceeding to ascertain whether any offense has been committed, and what punishment is to bo Inflicted, tho armymust be governed by the laws and usages of war as under stood and practised by the civilized nations of the world. Again: If tho prisoner bo a regular, unoffend ing soldier of the opposite party to tho war, bo should bo treated with all courtesy and kindness consistent with his safe custody. If ho has offended against tbo Jaws of war ho should have such trial and punishment as tho laws of war require. A spy, though & prisoner of war, mdy ho tried, condemned, and executed by military tribunal without a breach of tho Constitution. A bushwhacker, jayhawkor, bandit of war, rebel, as sassin, being a public enemy,may be tried, condemned, aud executed as offenders against the Laws of war, Tho law of nations, which Is tho result of the experi ence and wisdom of ages, baa decided that Jnyhawkors, bandits, etc., are offenders against tho law of nations and of war, and, as such amenable to tho military. Our Oonntltutlou bee made these laws part of tho law of tho land (see also Vattcl, 359 ; Wheaton's lut. Law, 400; Woolsoy’a Int. Law, 320; llallcuk’s lut. law. 400). Milligan's case (4 Wallace, p, 2) holds that under the circumstances herein stated a Military Commission to bo Illegal; but tho facts there are entirely different from those under consideration. Milligan wan u resi dent of a State not In rebellion. Tho courts were opcu ind unobstructed for his prosecution. Ho was neither t prisoner of war nor attached in any way to tho mili tary or naval service of the United Stales. According to “Instructions” heretofore referred to, no civil tribunal has jurisdiction In tho cases disclosed by the papers before mo. Sections 40 and 41 thereof are os follows: Seo. 40. There exists no law or body of authorita tive rules of action between hostile armies except that branch of the law of nations which is called the “ law and usage of war on land.' 1 Seo. 41. AH municipal law of tho ground on which armies stand, or of tho countries to which they belong, is silent, and of no olToct between armies in tho field. Manifestly these rules are to a great extent, if not altogether, correct, for it cannot bo protended that tho United States soldier is guilty of murder if he kills a public enemy In battle, which would be the case If the municipal law was in force, and it has application to uu act committed under such circumstances. All laws and customs of civilized warfare may not bo applica ble to an armed conflict with tho Indian tiibca upon our Western frontier, but the circumstances attend ing tho ossaesiuation of Canby and Thomas aro euch ns to make their murder as much n violation of tho laws of savage as of civilized war fare, and tho Indians concerned iu it fully understood tho baseness and treachery of their act. It Is dlfllcult to define exactly the relations of tho Indian tribes to (ho United States, hut as they have been recognized as Independent communities for treaty-making purposes, nud as they frequently carry on organized and pro traded wars, they may properly, as It seems to me, bo held subject to those rules of warfare which make a negotiation for peace after houtilitlcii possible, and which make perfidy, like that iu question, punleuablo by military authority. Doubtless tho war with tho Molocs ia practically ended, unless some of them should escape and renew bualllities, hut it la right for tho United States, as there Is no ogreoment for peace, to determine for themselves whether or not anything more ought to bo dooo for tho protection of tho country or punishment of tho criraoa growing out of tho war. 800. C 9 of said instructions is ss follows : <• a prisoner of . war remains answerable for his crime committed against tho captors, army, or people, committed before ho was captured, and for which he bas not been punished by bis own authorities.” My conclusion, therefore, Is that a Military Com mission may ho appointed to try such of thoModoo Indians now in custody as #r« charged with offenses SuSh filS <»> d that If, upon •KraS mmH™ BU “. l!r > lho J m "f subjected vSS " l,l ™f l| "™ fo'Wlto and Jumify.
