Page 228 U. S. 534

A demurrer to the indictment was heard, along with the demurrer to the indictment in the case against Chavez, which we have just decided. The demurrer was sustained and the indictment quashed upon the opinion rendered in the Chavez case. The ruling which we have just made in that case is therefore applicable to this, and necessitates a reversal.

Judgment reversed.
