BAS EDGEFIELD A SENATOR?
A BOMBIE BEE WITH HIS
HEAD CUT OFF.
The Question Will Have to be
Decided When the Senate
The following letter from the
Assistant Attorney General ex
OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL, )
COLUMBIA, July 31, 1897. j
Hon. M. B. McSweeney, Hampton,
Dear Sir: Your letter enclosing
communication to you from Mr.
M. P. Wells has been received.
The question submitted by the
letter of Mr. Wells is whether
there is now a .vacancy in the
office of Senator of Edgefield
It appears that at the last general
election in this State in Nov., 1896,
Hon, J M. Gaines was elected
Senator from Edgefield county.
At the session of the General
Assembly held in 1897 an Act was
passed and approved on the 2nd
day of February, A. D. 1897, to
establish Greenwood county. Mr.
Gaines, by the establishment of
Greenwood county, becomes a
citizen of that county.
Section 6, Article 3, of the
Constitution of 1895 is a3 follows:
"The Senate shall be composed
of ono member from each county
to bc elected for the term of four
years by the qualified electors in
each county iu the.same manner in
which members of the House of
Reprsentatives are chosen."
Section 7 of Article 3 is as
follows : "No person shall be eligi
ble to a seat in the Senate or House
of Representatives who at the time
of his election is not a duly qualifi
ed elector under this Constitution
in the county in which he may be
chosen. Senators shall be at least
twenty-five and Representatives
at least twenty-one years of age."
The qualifications pre cribed
by the Constitution to render an
elector eligible to the office of
Senator are : First, he must be a
qualified elector of the county;
s< cond, he must be at least twenty
five years of age. At the lime of
his election, in 1896, Mr. Gaines
was undoubtedly eligible to a seat
in the Senate from Edgefield
county. But, since his election,
his residence has been changed by
the Act to establish Greenwood
county. This change *'as not
voluntarily made by Mr. Gaines.
The Act also by its provisions has
made Mr. Gaines a qualified
elector of Greenwood county, for it
requires the Supervisors of
Registration of Edgefield county to
turn over all the Registration
bookd for the voting places embrac
ed in the bounds of Greenwood
county to the Supervisors of
Registration for Greenwood county.
This transfer of Mr. Gaines as a
qualified elector was also involun
Section 25, Article 3, is follows :
"If any election district shall
neglect to choose a member or
members on the day of election,
or if any person chosen a member
of either House shall refuse to
qualify and take his seat or shall
resign, die, depart the State, accept
any disqualifying office or position
or become otherwise disqualified
to hold his seat a writ of election
Bhall ba issued by the President of
the Sen ate or Speaker of thc House
of Representatives as the case may
be, for the purpose of filling the
Section ll, Article 3, is as
fellows : "Each House shall judge
of the election returns and
qualifications of its own members,
Who is made the judge under
the Constitution as to whether a
Senator elected and qualified and
who has taken his seat has become
disqualified to hold it? Under
Section 25, Article 3, the power to
decide this question is clearly vest
ed in the Senate. No State officer
nor the President of the Senate is
vested with any 6uch power. If
this is so, there is no vacancy in
the office of Senator from Edgefield
county until the Senate sits and
declares that Mr. Gaines has be
come disqualified to hold his seat,
and, as President of Senate, you
can only then issue a writ of elec
tion for the purpose of filling the
Section 6, Article 3, provides
that the person elected Senator
shall be elected for the term of
four years. In addition to this, in
the same Constitution, in which
the qualifications of a Senator are
provisions for tho formation of
new counties and for prescribing
the first them of the Senator from
such counties as to observe a
certain classification required.
In view of these provisions, and
of the fact that Mr. Gaines has not
voluntarily become a citizen of
Greenwood county, and the novelty
of the question raised in this case,
it would seem eminently ap
propriate that the Senate of South
Carolina should act in this matter
before any action is taken by you
as President of the Senate, under
Section 25, Article 3, of the
These are the views of this
office, which are not authoritative,
but have been expresod at your
? aruost request vithout any inten
tion of deciding the question
whether there is a vacancy in the
office of Senator from Edgefield
county or of influencing your
Yours very truly,
C. P. TOWNSEND,
Assistant Attorney General.
On receipt of the above letter
from the Assistant Attorney Gen
eral, the President of the Senate
wrote to Mr. Wells as follows :
HAMPTON, S. C., August 4,1897.
Mr. M. P. Wells, Edgefield, S. C.
Dear Sir: AS stated to you in a
previous letter I submiited to the
Attorney General the question as
to ordering an election for Senator
of Edgefield county,-aa requested
by you. I herewith enclose you a
copy of the reply just received
from the Attorney General's office.
In accordance with the views
therein exprewsed it appears that
I have no authority to order the
election for Senator from the
couut of Edgefield.

Fill :i bottle or common glass with
urine and let it stand fur twenty-four
hours; a sediment settling indicates
an unhealthy condition of the kidneys.
When urine stains Unen it is positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre
quent desire to urinate or pain in the
back, is also convincing proof thai the
kidneys and bladder are ou .ol' order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge
so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Koot, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain in
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine and
sca'ding pain in passing it, or bad
elt'ects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times duringj the night to
urinate. The mild and tne extraordi
nary effect of Swamp Koot is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful cures of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. Sold by drug
