THE STATE TS. THE BANK OE THE
Opinion of Justice Willard.
CHAMBERS SUPREME COURT, CHABLESTON.
The State, ex r*L Attornev-General, vs. the Presi
dent and Directors of the Bank: of tho State of
South Carolina-Motion for Mandamus. Attorney
General and D. T. Corbin for the motion; Hayne,
Campbell & Simon?, opposed.
STATEMENT OF THE CASE.
Tho Attorney-General has, in behalf of the
State, filed a sutrgestion, praying a writ of man?
damus to issue to the respondents, cominan din ir
them to deliver to the Governor the assets of
the Bank of the State, in accordance with the
provisions of the act of che Legislature, entitled
"An act to close the operations of the Bank of
the State of South Carolina," passed Septem?
ber 15th, 1868. A mle to show cause has been
granted, upon the return of which the respon?
dents now appear to show cause for the dis?
charge of the rule.
The first objection of the respondents is to
the sufficiency of suggestion to warrant the
issuing of the writ. Respondents contend
that they stand before the court as private cit?
izens, and not as public officers, and that for
that reason they are not amenable to the writ.
They also contend that the subject matter of
the controversy is one to which the writ is in?
MANDAMOS LIES AGATNdT PUBLIC SERVANTS.
The writ presupposes a duty to be performed
in which the public are concerned; the respond?
ent must, therefore, be a person capable ot
performing such a duty. Though commonly
issued to public officers, it equally extends
to any person, official or otherwise, " vho may
owe a public duty, and ia respec ; thereof
stands in the relation ot a public servant.
Chief Justice Marshall says, in Marbnry vs. Ma?
dison (Curtis 384), "It is not by the-office of
tbe person to whom the writ is directed, but
by the nature of the thing to bo done that the
propriety or impropriety of issuing a manda?
mus is to bo determined."
Blackstone (3 BL Com., 110) enum?rate s
amoDg those to whom it issues "persons." It
is not the design of the writ to draw to tho
court the official powers of tho respondent so
that the court can perform what he has neg?
lected, but it acts personally uoon him, com?
pelling, by personal pains and penalties, the
performance of a neglected duty. It is as
much a remedy against the person as an in?
dictment and action at hw for official misfea?
It is unnecessary to consider whether tho
president and directors aro, in a technical
sense, public servants, although one branch of
the Legislature so considered them; holding
them to be officers "contemplated by the con?
stitution as vacating the seat of any such
member of the Legislature." (Resolution of
House of Representatives, Saptember 15,1813,
Bank Compln., p. 78.)
MANDAMUS LIE? TO COMPEL PUBLIC DUTIES.
The true question is whether the act re?
quired to bo performed is one that may be
compelled by mandamus.
To establish a claim to the writ the State
must establish prima facie a clear right to de?
mand the performance of some act, and a cor?
responding specific duty on the part of the re?
spondent to perform the same imposed by law
(Marbnry VB. Madison, 1 Carba, 381); in its na?
ture ministerial and not depending on the dis?
cretion of the respondent (United States vs.
Kendall, 12 Cartis, 834), and that the pnblio
are in some degree directly concerned in the
performance of such duty; also, that perform?
ance has been demanded and refused, and that
no specific remedy exists for the enforcement
thereof. (Eins vs. Barker, 3 Burr, 1261).
Section 1 of the act of September 15, bot forth
by the suggestion, deckres that "the Governor
of the State is hereby authorized and required,
for and on behalf of the State, to take posses?
sion of all the real and personal estate, assets,
choses in action, and books of accounts of the
corporation known as the President and Direc?
tors of the State Bank of South Carolina" "in
whose hands soever found.' It alleges a de?
mand on the part of the Governor ana a refusal
of compliance on the part of respondents. It
is conceded by the return that there is proper?
ty of the description specified in the law in the
hands of the respondents as officers of the
bink. The requirements of the statute can?
not be complied with unless such propers
is delivered to the Governor, and hence it is
contended by the Attorney-General that
results by necessary implication of law
a duty on the part of the respondents to per?
form such act of the same obligation as if
commanded in express taren?. Assuming that
the respondents have no personal interest in
tHe required act, but are to be regarded as
standing ID the relation of public servants to
the property claimed-and snob implication te
?nfc only jsi?on?ul?, but necessary to the
attainment of the object of the statute-if
the Governor bas a clear legal right to take the
property, the withholding it is a wrong, the
essence'of which, in the case of a public ser?
vant, is the fuhne of official duty. Nor is it of
importance that the respondents are not nam?
ed in the statutes as the holders of the prop?
erty, the language of the act, "in whosesoever
hands found," being sufficiently descriptive to
denote the persons who?eught to comply with
THE RESPONDENTS ABE PUBLIC SERVANTS.
It remains, therefore, to inquire whether the
respondents are amenable to the law in the
character of public servants.
The Bank of the State was created in 1812
as a corporation and body politic, to continue
until 1835, and has been continued under sub?
sequent statutes until tho present time. It
was established "in the name and in behalf of
the State." Its capital was a fund created
from the resources of the State, guaranteed
against deficiency by a pledge of the faith of
the State. It was made a bank of loan,
discount, issue and deposit. It could
incur obligations, and had the largest powers
to deal with property usually conferred upon
banking companies. It could sue and bo sued,
have a corporate seal, make by-laws, ' and gene?
rally to do and execute all and singular such
matters and things which to them it should
appertain to d\* The president and directors
were chosen toy the Legislature. The State
from time to time increased the resources of
the bank by deposit subject to its draft, but
upon which it was authorized to bank. In ad?
dition to this all public officers holding public
monies was required to employ the bank as
their place of safekeeping. The unexpended
balance remaining in the Treasury of the State
at the end of any fiscal y oar was placed to the
credit of thc capital of the bank. The profits
were in 1821 created a rand foi the redemption
of the State six per cent, stocks.
The Legislature from time to time passed
laws oontrolliDg the institution, clearly ex?
pressive of a relation more intimate than that
which usually subsists between banking cor?
porations and the legislative authority.
It is obvious that the bank was created
for the uso ot the State, a purely public
purpose, and that the Sta'.e intended to retain,
and"did in fact retain, over the institution the
fullest control capable of being exercised over
a corporate institution, a power that necessari?
ly resulted from the cession to the State of a'l
elements of pablic authority and those aDper
taining to tue ownership of the stock of such
.n institution. To the inteat of the
imit of the constitutional authority c
legislature, the officers of tho bank
sound to execute the c juara rads and car
he will or the legislative authority,
eoth in its object and uses, and in the i
oy which thoy were to bc attained, thc
having entire "coutrol of the institution,
icterizes it as a public servant, its o
?tanding in the sam3 relation. (Opini
Story, J., 4 Wheat., 66?.)
The fact that it could bind itself and
sources by its contract and become amt
to the jii'licial authority, does not alte
viow of the case, for many public officer
aess tho Bame degree of competency w
changing their relations to the public ai
THE D?TT D? THIS CASE CAN BE ENFORC
Tho respond rats being pubhc servai
between tbc State and themselves, tho
July 6 created a drty to deliver to the G<
or thc fund in question to the extent
control they might have ovo.: it, and, fail
do so, the State was entitled to a remi
enforce the performance of 6uch a duty.
That the act required was ministen
left nothing to the discretion of thc res
ents. results from tho absolute chane
the command, as well as from the nat
tho act itself.
The act required is clearly and dist
commanded as a specific duty in chic
State is alone concerned, so far as can be
er< d from the statute.
The next question that arises is wi
any other specific remedy than that by m
mus has been provided. Thc statute in
tion provides no remedy, and therefor
question is to be governod by general p
pies of law; for a case like the present m
mus is a sp?cifie remedy devised for thi
purposes ot meeting the want ot a general
edy by action. It meets the very case
a specific act ought to be performed t
withheld, and where compensation in
other form would not equally servo the i

has been well chosen, and proceed to tin
sideration of the grounds that have

It is neccssai y to examine the grouni
which this claim rests.
Dabney, Morgan & Co. filed their bi
equity, in October, 1867, alleging that tho
holders of bills issued by the honk; thai
bank is insolvent; they seek a discovery
account of the assets of tho bank, and i
cree annul lin ;, as unconstitutional, an act c
Legislature, massed in 1868, so far as the i
assumes con .ix! over such assets, and to
ate certain preferences in regard to the f
prejudicial to complainants, and also tc
poid out of the assets ot the bank, accor
to the rights and priorities adjudged tc
respective creditors having claims, lega
equitable, thereon. They also ask an inj
tura and receiver of the fund.
The president and directors of tho bani
made parties defendant to the original
Thc At'orney-Genoral was afterwards, wttl
consent, made a party in behalf of the State
the purpose of validating the act of 1865,
certain other creditors of the bank were
wiso made parties defendant.
Answers were interposed hy tho several
fondants, that of the bank admitting its ii
vency and upholdicg the preferences ere
by the act of 1368. The Attorney-General
wered in behalf of (he State, enforcing
validity of the act of 1865.
An order was made by consent. Marc
1868,whicn, by anticipation, directed that u
the coming in of tho answers or the
being taken pro conjesso for want of an ans
the cause should stand referred to amaste
take proofs. Directions were given for
Master to advertise for the appearance of

rectors wore also ordered to account beforo

fact that the possession of F?deral author
would naturally incline them to decide ti
rule within the narrowest limits, with a vi
to secure the largest efficiency within tho n
essarily limited sphere of original Fedo al,
Taylor vs. Carryl (.29 Howard, 583) is a str
ing illustration of this rule, arisiug out o:
conflict between tho United Stales Distr
Court in Admiralty and a State Court acti
under process of foreign attachment. T
claim in admiralty was for seamen's wages;
the State Court,' that of a general credil
having nn lion upon the vessel, the subject
controversy, except that obtained through t
foreign attachment. It was strenuously oe
tended that the case ol a libot for seamei
irages in admiralty formed an exception to t
general doctrine embraced iu the rule abo
stated. The court, however, was of op.nl
that the general rule as to co-ordina'.e jurisd
tious was applicable to tho case, and sustain
the authority of the State Court, which h
first gained possession ot tho subject of t
controversy. Thc cases in the Supreme Cou:
depending on this principle were carefully co
8ideredin this case, and tho rulo vindicate
substantially, as laid down in Conkliug's Ire
??se above ??tod. Campbell, J., delivering tl
opinion of the court, cites approvingly tl
authority of 3 Hare 472, to the proposition th
the "Court of Chancery docs uot allow tl

amonablo to tho court that appointed then
which had authority to apply the assets to tb
paymssat ot claims against the corporation.
APPLICATION OF LIS PENDENS TO PBESENT CASI
The application of this rule to tho preset:
cuse involves thc following consideration!
First, whether tho Court of "Chancery has ol
tarneit the possession of thc subject matter c
this controversy, or of the controversy itsel:
and, second, whether the rule is applicable t
a case in which the public authority seeks t
compel, by mandamus, thc performance of
strictly puolic act.
In a strictly technical sense, the subjec
matter uf this controversy is an act of a publi
character, performance ol which is claimed ot
public servaDt who withholds thu same; but a
tho doing this act involves a certain contre
over a specified fuud, it becomes necessary t
know whether, consistently with tho rales o
law, the act can be compelled in the manne
that is proposed.
What is then the situation of thn fund ? Hat
it been placed in the hands of a receiver nt
question could arise as to i's being in tin
hands of tho court that appointed him. Is i
any the less so in thc presout instance ? Tin
court has assumed not only tho control of tht
fund, but has actually entered npou its admin
tran JD. It h.? protected it from waste by in
junction. It ha? already, by anticipation, de?
moted it to certain uses. It has tied up every
aand that could intermeddle with it, and open
id the door ot coutroversy to all making claims
igainst it. Tho assets of the bank are no
longer either capital or profits, but a fund in
Bquity, as completely and actually as if in the
hands of a receiver. " Tbe president and direc?
tors, if not receivers, have their responsibili?
ties, and, in the language above cited, are at
least "custodeea." As it regards tbe fund, they
aro but the hands of the Court of Chancery.
But it is equally clour that tho Court ot Chan?
cery has possession of tho controvorsv both as
il regards tho questions at issue and the par?
ties. '.OIN; State lias lutcrvcncd in the person
of ita ittorney-General, and submitted its
right to that c uri by answer. If that demand
is too narrow it can be made larger; thc court
is tound to respect and maiutain whatever
claim thc Seato mav rightfully make upon the
fund. The rights of tho State, aa they exist,
under Act cf 18G8, are the same thal existed at
the time it interposed its answer. It has ac?
quired no new title or giant of authority in re?
lation to the lund. It could have claimed by
its answer unlimited ontrol over thc assets if
it can do sono.v. It advances no claim that
could not be considered by th it court, and it is
to be presumed that tu?t court, deriving its
powers from Hie constitution, will give due ef?
fect to all rights, public and private. A plain?
er case could not be conceived, for holding
that so far as tho question of co-ordinate juris
dictiou is involved, ihe right to proceed in ju
dicature.hod private rights been alone concern?
ed, rests with the Court of Chancery.
RULE APPLICABLE TO CASE WHERE 6TATE IS
But can this rule be extended to a contest
v.here the State claims, by the extraordinary
remedy of mandamus the performance of an
act ot a public nature, imposed by Ptatuto au?
The" writ of mand imus ia a rem dy apper?
taining to the judicial exercise of jud cial
power, and as such is subject to all thc rules
that govern procedure in the courts. If sued
out by a citizen for the purpose of chrimiug a
purely private right depending on the action
ot a public ofiiccr, it enid rot bj contended
with any propriety, that as a peculiar remedy it
was exempt from thc operation of amie in
teuded to bind together all ju.isliciions and
remedies iuto a harmonious whole. It certain?
ly would not be allowed to oust the Court of
Chancery of its appropriate jurisdiction over a
specified fund in contr jvcrsy.
lu thc present case, however, the State is a
real aud not a nominal party, aud this is claim?
ed as placing thc case in a peculiar attitude to
the rule in question. The State can neither be
sued nor compelled to appear in its own courts
as elsewhere. Where it enters tho courts it
docs so voluntarily, and it is to bc presumed
for the reason thatsoms important object can?
not be attained except through the aid ol' the
judicial arm of the government. But no propo?
sition is more clcur than that when thc Siato
places itself :n the attitude of a suitor in its
courts, it subjects itself to all tho rules that
bind the jurisd.ction from which it seeks re?
lief. When it enters the Court of Chancery it
conforms to every requirement that binds the
humblest citizen', when it claims thc aid of
tho wiit of m.mciamtt^ it takes it subject o all
the rules that control its employment, lt fol?
lows, therefore, that the same rule must be ap?
plied in the present case that would govern in
a case of private rights, and, acordiugly, tint
rcgaiding the State as a claimant to the fund
in question, an insuperable objection exists to
the exercise of the jurisdiction claimed iu
It has been hitherto assumed that the de?
mand of the State is to tho absolute control of
tho fund in its own right, and fer such uses as
it may seo fit to declare, Anothor view of thc
Act of 18CS has been presented which demands
consideration. It is contended that the act
morely contemplates a clionge in thc custodian
ot the fund without necessarily diverting it from
any uses to which it may havo become appro?
priated by law. It is said that the Legislature
may rightfully designate the proper persons to
have thc custody of funds in suits pending in
the courts, and tnat in tho present instaucs
thoy have fairly exercised that poner. That in
such a case the courts have uo more right to
complain than they would if tho writ of manda?
mus was sought to compel a Master in Equity
to surrender to tho Clerk of the Common Picas
funds iii his possession on tho logal transfer of
thc dutios of his office to the Ja->t named officer.
That in such event the fuud still remains sub?
ject to tho older ot the ourt, though actually
h?ld in different hands.
On this supposition the statute of 1838 would
Lave to be regarded asiemediul rather than as
au assertion of a right to control the dedica?
tion of tuc fuud.
This question is ono of delicacy and import?
ance, ?.tnt ns such has received full and serious
coi.sidtiution. Time allows only a statement
of the conclusion arrived at.
ACT OF 1808 NOT REMEDIA L.
A careful examination of the statute, both as
to its lenus and geueral acopo, a'lowmg in fi
vor of tho legislative action every reasonable
intendmeut, affords no sufiic.eut" ground for
holding it to bo intended as a remedial statute.
Tue G.iveriior could hud in it no authority to
make any other disposition of the lund than
such os might bo pms u-ibed by appro,'riations
made by tho Legislature. The dcsigi. ition of
the Governor, in his name of ohico as tho cus?
todian, au officer who cannot, in his o<hcial
character ai Executive of tho State, bo roached
by the process of tho Courts, seems to
include the idea that it was not tho inten?
tion ol' the act to remove tho lund from (bj
emt:ol of tho court. (Governor Georgia vs.
Madrszj, 1 Pet., 110.) Thc direction to sell at
public auctiou with direct reference t> thc in?
terests of tho State, is inconsistent with tho
principles governing the disposition of ?qui?
table funds. Viewing the provision made in
the statute for funding a portion of the bills of
the bank in connection with thc clauses em?
powering tho Governor to so'zo tin fuud. aud
the inovitahlc infereuce is that thc Legislature
lairly concluded that such provisiou ratitied all
legal and moial claims upon the fund, aud lott
it at liberty to employ it as a means of satisfy?
ing thc general indebtedness of the State, part
of which arisc3 from trio issue of bunda to
satisfy tho demands of thc billholdcrs ol' thc
bank. In this view thc statute- can only be re?
garded .as an assortion ol' a propriotarv claim
to the lund, and as such wc have seen that (ho
appropriate tribunal before whom that claim
should bc asserted is the Court of Chancery
that has posiossion of tho fund.
The respondents have ur-rcd various other
matters in bar ol the proceedings, which,
under tho view taksa of thc case, arc not im?
portant to bo considered. Among the objec?
tions urged is that thc Act of 1808 is invalid
under thc Constitution of thc United Staten as
impairing thc obligalious of tho contra?is of
the bauk and (nc Slate with tho creditors ot
tho bunk. Ai I may bc called upon at some
future time, as a member of the Miprcine
Court, to pass upon tho question, it is mani?
festly appropriate that no expression of views
on that subject should bo made when not im?
peratively demanded by the case before mo.
The rule to show cause will be discharged.
