U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Herr, 211 U.S. 406 (1908)

United States v. Herr

No. 292

Argued October 15, 1908

Decided December 14, 1908

211 U.S. 406

ERROR TO THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Syllabus

Decided on the authority of United States v. Keitel, ante, p. 211 U. S. 370.

157 F.3d 6 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.

MR. JUSTICE WHITE delivered the opinion of the Court.

The indictment in this case contains two counts, each purporting to charge the commission of an offense in violation of Rev.Stat., § 4746, as amended.

The substantial charge in each count is that the defendant unlawfully procured a named person, in connection with a preferential entry of coal lands, to make and present to the Secretary of the Interior, by and through the register and receiver of the United States land office at Durango, Colorado, an affidavit at purchase, which was false and fraudulent in specified particulars. A demurrer to the indictment was filed, and the validity of each count was assailed on many grounds. In disposing of the demurrer, it was assumed by the district chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

judge, as conceded by the government, that the affidavit was not, in fact presented to the Secretary of the Interior, but was simply filed in the local land office.

The demurrer was sustained "for reasons given on consideration of the second count in the indictment" in the case against F. W. Keitel et al. The case at bar comes within the principles applied by us in No. 287, just decided, where, in passing upon the rulings made below in the Keitel case, it was held that the second count of the indictment there considered, when the statute was correctly construed, stated no offense. The judgment below, which involved a similar ruling, is therefore

Affirmed.
