THE STATE EX. REL. GILBERT PILLSBURY, ET AL, VS.
THE ACTING MAYOR AND ALDERMEN OF IHE CITT OF
CHARLESTON-MANDAMUS-IN TUE COMMON PLEAS,
In ibis casu an altenative mandamus was issued
out of thif court, directe I to the -oling Mayor and
Aldermen of the City of Charleston, couimaudinc
th'im to t.im over all the property, book1: and papers
pertaining to their several respective offices to the pe?
titioners therein named, and to vacate and Burlen?
di r to the said persons their several and respective
offices, or to appear b. fore this court on friday, thc
19th day cf March instant, and show cause why they
refuse to do so.
In answer to this writ the respondents do certify
and de-lare unto the court, "that they do not sur?
render unto said persons thc properties and offices
a'oro-aij, because thoy say that they are in posses?
sion of said offices, having been adnitted and sworn
under appoiutments and elections duly made, and
that ma damus ia not, therefore, the proper remedy
of -the petitioners."
lue respondents, in further answer to the Faid
writ, set forth the title i.nder wh ch they claim to
hold their respective offices; they traverse the aeve
ra! allegations made by tee petitioners as thc grounds
upon whi-h th'-y are entitled to the writ, and which
are recited in the ulternative writ; and they far?
ther aver that the net of the Legislature, ratified
on thc Ut day of March, instant, under the provi?
sions of wkich the petitioners- claim .to be entitled
to these office", is in violation of chartered rights
of the cerporaters-ol 'he- city, and. aleo of the Con?
stitution cf the State and of the United States, in
several .particulars, and therefore inoperative and
void. Upon the filing of this return the petition
er?' counsel asked for time to plead, which wai
the pe ti-iou er s then filed a general demurrer to
the respondents' return. The demurrer of the peti?
tioners admits all the al legation a of the respondents'
return, which are.properly pleaded, and would seem
to put in issue the sufficiency in law of their cause
shown by them for not obeying the mandate of the
writ, but at the beariog the argument was confined
to the question made in the first section of the re
aponden'.s' return-is mandamut the proper remedy
lor the petitioners ? The other questions raised in
the respondents' return mare waived, nor were they
admitted; but as the same quesiions hid been made
in the pleas to tho writ of quo warranta against the
same respondents issued and returnable at the same
time and at the instance of the same relators, which
was set down for hearing at a later day, the argu?
ment was not had upon these questions, hat was re?
served until the hearing of the quo warranta.
The question discussed at bar, and nowt? be deci?
ded, is a narrow and f ormal one, and does not go to
the merits of th? case.
It is not disputed that maniamus is the proper
remedy against a public officer, who neglects or re?
fuses to do some duty which the law enjoins upon
him, and in which the petitioner or relator has an
interest in and riyht to have done, and where there
is no other remedy which is tull, appropriate and*
adequate. The question i* whether this is such a
case. On the part of the respondents it ia contend?
ed that it Ls not. because they are in possession of
the offices which the writ commands them to vacate
and surrender to the petitioners de facto, *nd by
color of ri^bt; and that theiemedy of the petitioners
ia upon an information m the nature of a eui war?
rant*, in which their tide will be put in question,
and upon which the ju 'cm-nt ls of ous'er irom the
offices held by them; asd that this remedy bas
been already granted to tl:* petitioners by this
<rourt. 1 ho petitioners, on the other band, claim
that it ia the duty ot the respondents, required of
them by law, to vacate their offices, and surrecder
them to the petitioners-and that they can never
obtain possession of these offices, even if there
ebould be a ju igment of ?utter upon the quo war
rania, except by mandamus, which is the only ade?
quate, therefore the proper nmedy.
The books speak o? mandamus as used to admit or
'restore to an office; bat it must bs borne iu mind
that when used for this purpose lt ia directed to an
officer or officers whose duty it ia to admit to the
office claimed by the petitioner. The writ itself as?
sumes the person to whom it is,di re.-ted to be an
officer, and to continue in office in order to perform
the duty icquired of bim.
But when the office sought is filled by one claim?
ing it in his own right, mandamus is not the remedy
for one claiming against th? incumbent. In such a
cos*tho clarmont, if entitled io the relief of the court,
must obtain it through a quo wirrmnto.
To illustrate ibis diatioction in the present caso, if
the Acting Mayor and Aldermen of ch arie-ton should
refuse to allow one to exercise a public office, to
which ho had been elec ed by them, he would, upon
a proper casft made, be entitled to a mandamut, com?
manding them to admit him; but where the pell
tioners seek tor themselves the offices of which thc
Ac tm- Board axe in possession, they muse seek re?
lief by a quo warranta, and not by mandimu*. This
writ not only commands the Acting Mayor and Al?
ai moen to surrender certain property, but vacate
The authorities upon this point are numerous and
"lhc court will refuse, to graut tho writ of man?
damus if it appoir that the applicant has a remedy
by information iq the nature of a quo warranta.
Thus a rule tot a mandamus to admit a recorder was
refused, because it appeared there was a recorder de
facto, and. therefore, the applicmt had such a rem- I
edy. For the consequence of vranting a rule in auch
a case would be, that a second person would be ad?
mitted to an office already filled by another, both
claiming to be duly elected.
"The court will, however, in some caaes, grant a
mandamut, although the title of the officer to whom
the nui' damut ia directed is questioned by tho pen?
dency of an information in the nature of a quo war?
ranto, for it may be collusive ; but if the prosecutor ff
tilt quo vHtrranto be also the applicant for tte man?
damus, it it otherwise." (Tapping on Mandamus,
"When sn office or franchise ia full de facto, and
another person disputes tho validity of the election
.r appointment, Ina remedy is by a qua warranto in?
formation, aod mt by a mond imus " >*If the elec?
tion were doubtful, and fit to be tried upon an infor?
mation in the nature of a quo warranta, tho court
ought not to gnat ti mandamus." "If such ouster and
election bebona fide, the court will not grant a man?
damus in favor of the party displaced ; the proper
proceeding is by a quo warranto against tho porty
holding the office defacto."
"Where the aldermen and assess irs of a ward in a
borough bad deolared ?, B or C to be cte ly elected as
councillors, and they accordingly took upon then
selves the effice, and made daclaratioa required by
law. ?ad acted as councillors, the court refused a
mandamus to allow Y and Z to acidas councillor?,
even as<>um<ng that they ought to have been declar?
ed duly elected, for the office waa full de facto -of A,
B and C. Butan in for QI a'iou in the nil me of a quo
warranto was granted." (Cole on Criminal Infor?
mations, 147,149, and cases cued.)
Mandamus to admit a recorder was refused, be?
cause there was a recorder de facto, and the party
had another remedy, by quo warranto. There both
of thom claimed under the some election. (Bex. vs.
Mayor of Colchester, 2 T. B.. 259 )
The writ ha? often been made use of in modern
practice to admit or restore to an office, and the rule,
as above laid down, seems *o have been unchanged.
But when an office is filled by a perso? who had
been admitted and a ?om, and ls iuby color of right,
a man-iamut is never issued to admitanother person.
The proper remeJy is by a quo warranto. (Angel k
Ames on Corpoi ations. C18, 626, and cases cited;
Moses on Mandamus ISO.)
The distinction as above shown between manda?
mus and quo warranto, under the practice iu this
State, is fully au?taiued iu State vs. selvre. (7 Hich.,
234, and coses there cited )
But it ls Bald that even if th-re should be judg?
ment of ouster upon tbe quo warranto given against
the respondents, tbey could not be compelled to Bur
render the books and property except by a manda?
mus, and that, thereiore, it is the proper remedy.
The couit will not assume that in case of judgment
being pronounced against them on the quo warranta
the Acting Mayor and Aldermen wo ul I so rei use;
but even if tbey should do so. the remedy would be
ample without mandamus. Ibo petitioners then
have anolber remedy, appropriate, tull and
adequate, and, therefore, mandamus is not the
remedy. The petitioners' counsel contended that
thc ?ct of the Legislature having declarad the peti?
tioners entitled to the office* held hy iuv respond
eai.'. '.uta mandamut was th? proper r?ine?y io com?
pel their obedience to the act. Asaumiug its validity,
it confers a right, but does not proscribe a remedy.
In this case, to save tbo time of the court ironi be?
ing consum-d iu heariug the same argument twice,
the atiernat'.ve mandamus was issued iu thu first in?
stance, without a preliminary ru c to show cause.
Hud cause b.eu shu ia in r?ponse to a rule, thc
alternative writ would not have been issaed. Being
made as a return to an alternative wn>, it is held to
be sufficient why a peremptory writ shall no; issue.
I he demuricr of the petitioners is overruled, and
the alternative writ of mandamus will be quashe d,
and it is so ordered. B, B. CABrEMEB.

this excellent medicine en
jovs, ia derived from ita
< ure:1, many of which are
truly marvellous. Invete?
rate caeca of Scrofulous
disease,, whet o the system
seemed saturated with
corrup ion, have been pu?
rified and cured by it.
Scrofulous affections and
disorders, whict were ag.
grava1 ed by the scrofu?
lous contamination until
they wero painfully affliction, have been radical y
cured ia such great Lumber.- in ahm it every section
of thc country, that thc oublie scarcely need to be
informed of its virtues or uso %
Scrofulous poison is ono of thc most destructive
enemies of our race. Often this unseen and unfelt
tenant of the organism undermines thc constitution,
ani hiv i. cs the attack ol enfeebling or fatal diseases,
without exciting a suspicion of its presence. Again,
it sec-mi to breod infection through tbo bodylnm?
then,on some favorable occasion, rapidly develops
into one or other ol irs hideous forms, cither on the
surface or among the vitals. In tho latter, tubercles
may be suddenly deposited in the langs or heart, or
tumers formed in tho liver, or it shows it* presence
by emptions on the skin, or ioul ulcerations on somo
part of tho body. Heneo thu occasional use of a
bottle of this SARSAPARILLA is aavSfcble, even
when no activo .symptoms of disease appear. Per?
sons amide 1 with tholoiiowicg complaints generally
find inmediate relief, and, at length, cure, by the
use of thia SARSAPARILLA: St. Anthony's Fire,
Rose or Erysipelas. Tetter, sott Rheum, Scald Head,
Ring Worm, sore lyes. Sera Ears, and other erup?
tions cr visible forms of Scrofulous disease. Also,
m the more concealed forma, aa Dyspepsia, Dropsy,
Heart Di-ease, Fits, Epilepsy, Neuralgia and the va?
rious ulcoroua affections of tho muscular and ner?
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercurial Diseases are
cured by it, though a long time ie required for sub?
duing these obstinate moladi'S by any medicino.
But long continued us? of thia medi?me* will euro
the complaint. Leukorrhoe 1 or Whites, Uterine Ul?
cerations and Female diseases, are commonly soon
relieved and ultimately cored by its purifying and
invigorating effect. Minute Directions for each case
are found in our Almanac, supplied grads. Rheu?
matism and Gout, when caused by accumulations of
extraneous matters in the blood, yield quickly to it,
as also Liver Complaints, Torpidity, Congestion or
Inflammation of the Liver and Jaundice, when aris?
ing, au they often de, from the rankling poisons in
the blood This SARSPARILLA ia a great restorer
for the strength and visor of the system. Those who
are Languid and Lis tie a, Respondent, Sleepless
and tronbled with Nervous Apprehensions or Fears,
or any of the offoctiona symptomatic of Weakness,
will find immediate relief and convincing evidence
of its restorative power upon trial.
