WHITE HOUSE, September 26th, 1904. In the foregoing case of Fred H. Skor, alias Federico de la Cruz, it appears from the plea in bar offered by the accused, that he had become separated from the military service prior to his arraigoment.

The plea appears to be well established. and as the court-martial was therefore without jurisdiction to try the case, the proceedings, findings and sentence are disapproved.

T. ROOSEVELT
Accordingly the prisoner, Fred H. Skow, alias Federico de
la Cruz, will be released from custody.
