The Illegal ,lfury at Kings* roe.
The legal point involved iu the re
ceut jury question at Kingstrco is so
important and interesting to tho profes
Bton throughout tl o State, that I ap
prebend it would be interesting to state
the facts more fully than ha* been done.
The jury law provides that "there shall
be appointed by the Governor, and con
firmed by the Senate, one officer*for
each county in tho State, to be named
oad designated a jury commissioner,
who, with the county auditor and chair
man of the board of county commission
ers, shall constitute a board of jury
commissioners for tho county." Also
that "the board of jury commissioners of
each county shall oneo in every year,
during tho month of January, prepare a
list of such inhabitants of their re
spective counties, n.?t absolutely exempt
as they may think well qualified to servs
as jurors, being persons of good moral
characer, of sound judgement, and free
from all legal oxecpti >ns," &c. In tho
County of W illiatnsburg, during the
month of January last, when the jury
li.-t was prepared, the officrs of jury
commissioner and county auditor were
held by one and tho came individual,
so that thcto were but himself, holding
these two offices, and the chairman of
the county commissioners to prepare tho
list and draw the jury for the late tonn
of court. After a motion and a learn
ed argument thoreou by Mr. Dozier, of
Georgetown, Judge Green heidthat the
act of preparing the list of such person
as were qualified to serve as jurymou,
as contradistinguished from a ministerial
act, was a judicial act and required uot
only a majority, but the presenco and
concurring judgement of every designa
te! member of ti e board; that if two
could perform the required service as a
board, it would only bo necessary to go
one step further and hold that the Gov
ernor might appoint tho chairmai
of the county commissioner? to be the
jury commissioner and county auditor,
and thus this ono mau would bo the
board, and perform all the duties roquir
ed, He held that thcro was a consider
able and Jmportr. nt difference between
the act of preparing the list, which is
judicial, a? stated, and tho ministerial
act of drawing the jury after tho list is
prepared. In tho latter case he intima
ted that ho would hold that a mnjority
of the boaid was sufficient, whilo in the
] former he did not hesitate to hold that a
'jury list, proparcd by any less than three
separatio, distinct persons, w is wholly
illegalX Tho result was not a case civil
or criminal, wn*ttricd, though the jail is
prcttymigh full of-prisoners. And tho
worst <|f it is, no othor jury can be drawn
during tho prescut yoar, for, according
to thjp existing luw, the list must bo
I prepared in the month of January; and
that month is past. The only romcdy is
