and 100 New York State Reporter state the date of the larceny, although it was otherwise described with such a degree of circumstance as to make its identification seem complete. Since that case was decided, however, the appellate division of the supreme court, in this department, has passed upon a somewhat similar case (People v. Sloan, 39 App. Div. 265, 56 N. Y. Supp. 930), in which they expressly hold that the date of the commission of the crime was not material. In the case last cited the description of the offense read as follows: "Charged with petit larceny, in stealing one mink boa, valued at $18.75, the property of J. N. Adam & Co." It was held that this was a sufficient designation of the offense, even if the construction here contended for by relator is to be applied to the language of section 721. The court is, however, careful to point out that where the defense of previous conviction is asserted the defendant is not limited by the record, but may establish the fact that the two prosecutions are for the same offense by evidence outside the record; and the case of People v. Finn, 87 N. Y. 533, is cited as holding that a description of the offense by the very general term “misdemeanor of petty larceny" is sufficient. In the case of People v. Markell (Co. Ct.) 50 N. Y. Supp. 766, which was a proceeding similar to the one here under consideration, Judge Ross, of Onondaga county, held a certificate of convic tion sufficient which simply recited that the defendant was before the recorder of the city of Rome, “charged with petit larceny in said city on the 25th day of September, 1897.” Here was no de scription of the crime, except by date and place. The argument was made in that case, as here, that the designation was so vague as to make it difficult for defendant to prove what he had been convicted of, in case of a subsequent prosecution for the same offense. This difficulty is, however, pronounced "imaginary” by the learned judge, and so it seems to me. No matter how vague the record, it is in the power of the defendant, so long as he does not contradict the record, to establish on a second prosecution, by evidence outside the record, precisely what he was convicted of before. The desig. nation of the offense in the case at bar is precisely the same as that held sufficient by the court of appeals in People v. Finn. The decision in the Sloan Case does not seem to me to require any more definite designation, and I shall therefore hold the certificate suficient. Application denied, and the prisoner ordered remanded.
