Mr. BUREAU.

This is a new position. Justice has been dispensed in the Northwest Territories by various officers. There has been some dispute as to jurisdiction as to cases arising in the Northwest. For instance, an Indian was killed there, and there was no one to try the person accused of the murder until a special commissioner and a jury were appointed for the case.
