And Ensign BENNET BRIGGS of the same regiment … it appears, that, upon the first article of the complaint, in which it is alleged, in substance, that the respondent, in presiding at an election of compny officers, allowed several persons to vote who did not belong to the company …. And that he refused to receive the vote of one person who was duly enrolled … That, of the 4th article, expressed in the following words, ‘said WARD made his return, that said TINKHAM was duly elected Captain of said company, when he must have known that it was not the choice of said company that said TINKHAM should be their captain … the Court decided ‘that said WARD is guilty’. Wherefore the Court having taken into consideration the offence of which it hath adjudged COL. EPHRAIM WARD to be guilty, after full and mature deliberation thereon, sentenced him be reprimanded in orders … The elective franchise is dear to every elector’s heart … and all the regulations which have emanated from Head Quarters, on this important branch of service, are designed to elucidate and secure to electors this inestimable constitutional privilege … The same Court also tried Colonel JOSHUA HAMBLEM … Chares 1st Neglect of duty and disobedience of orders … neglecting to make the annual returns of his regiment … … Unmilitary conduct … For exercising a military command when he was under arrest … after a full and mature deliberation being had, did sentence him to be removed from office, and adjudged him to be disqualified for, and incapable of holding any military office, under this Commonwealth, for life … The same Court also tried Major FREEMAN FOSTER, Brigade Quarter Master … on the complaint of Brigadier General WILLIAM H.
