THE CHARLESTON ELECTION.
Proceedings Under tnc Writ of Quo
Ibo bearing of tbe arguments in the matter
ot the writ of quo warrante, directed tu iho Action
Mayor and Aldermen of Charleston, was continued
yesterday in the Circuit Court before Judge Car
Mr. C. B. Milts, for the Acting Mayor and Alder?
men, continued his argument, repejting the s ate
? ment made ou Thursday last that the whole question
divided itself into two parts: 1. As to the legality of
the whole election; and 2. as to the legality of thc
particular votes cast, which second part of thc ques
tion bad never been decided, and was now pending.
Mr. Mile* reviewed the circumstances attending thc
writ of ma-.rfamus issued by tho Supreme Court, and
the return of the Mayor and Aldermen and their de?
claration of the election, arguing that all that the
Supreme Court did was to give the claimants
grour-ds upon wli-'b to found their claims to the
offices. It was dec.i.-ed by the court that ils decis?
ion did not touch the validity of the election. To
have touched it'would have been for the court to
try a question of fact. AU that tho Mayor and Alder?
men had to d o was to d celare who had tho largest num?
ber of votes-all other questions being left in abey?
ance. The eourt said that the declaration of the elec?
tion might be o f no value to the claimants, but that
they were entitled to lr. Yet this d ec lar-, t ion is made
the basiB of th? Validating act The Supreme Court
granted the declaration so that the claimants might
be able to make a case and try their title, and the
claimants, baying obtained tho declaration for that
purpose, bad no right to go before the Legislature
and use it for another purpose. Having obtained
the act in that way, the act was void and no law.
The act did not repeal the city charter, and yet it
came in at the middle of the term and ordered an
election in November, 18C8. It did not amend the
charter, and the Acting Mayor and Aldermen were
not divested by it of their right to remain in office.
It is a right of the corporators or citizens to bo gov?
erned by Mayor and Aldermen duly elected by quali
fled persons, while this act proposes to give these
offices to persons not duly elected. The Mayor and Al?
dermen have the right to hold office until their suc?
cessors are elected ; their offices are property of which
they cannot be divested but by judgment of their
peers or the law of the land. Io these ways the act
infringed the rights of the citizens and thc Acting
Mayor and Aldermen.
Mr. Miles chimed that the act was unconstitu?
tional, because it was not universal and general in
its application; also, because no person can be de?
prived of any right, privilege or immunity except
by the j ad-ment of his peers and the law of the
land ; also, because it was sn invasion by the Legis?
lature of the judicial power, the act bein,* a judg?
ment, a penalty, an absolutely judicial act aud de?
cree. Aut air!ties showed that the Legislature did
exercise judicial power (1) when, by special act, it
set aside general laws for the benefit of individ?
uals; (2), when it legislates for a special purpose; (3),
when it Eecka to determine private controversies;
and in these particulars the Legislature, in passing
the Validating act, had gone beyond their powers.
Nor could the Legislature deprive the Mayor and
Aldermen of thc right which they had when the
Validating bill was passed-that of holding office
until thetr successors were duly elected and qualified.
In regard to the c tees quoted on the other side,
wherein the Legislature had made gool irregularities
and deficiencies in elections and other matters,
Mr. Miles said that these cas?s had nc UT been dis?
puted, they were acquiesced in by all, while in thiii
case threo thousand persons protested against the
right of the Legislature to determine wno wore
elected. There was no act on thc statute book to
confirm tho rights to office of persons' ?hose claims
were contested. No act bad ever been parsed to
meet such a case os this. Continuing this hne of ar?
gument, Mr. Miles analyzed the State precedents
relating to the division of Charleston into four
wards, and to thc Timmonsvil'e, Mount Pleasant
and Moultrieville clo :tioas. showing that in all these
OF es tho atjts were passed to cover defots arising
from the necessities of the case, thc power which
granted the privileges being invoked to remedy tho
dtfe:ts. Only the things in which every one con?
curred Were confirmed. There was no iufringe
mui! ?r it,i?ro," .wi itu Jv^uuiUuii ux privil?ges.
Whatever rights tu o claimants had on thc 10th No?
vember last, they had now, and no Legislature could
take them awa?. But, on the other hand, if the elec?
tion was an illegal one, the acting Mayor and Alder?
man could not be deprived ot their right to hold
office until their successors were legally elected.
The act ia aleo unconstitutional, because "every
act or resolution having the force of law shall relate
to but one subject, und that shall be expressed In
tue title." Now the act If it does anything does re?
peal the city charter and does repeal certain acts
and military ordera as far u they refer to the Acting
Mayor and Aldermen. Neither is expressed in the
title, and the act is void.
Mr. Miles also eaid that on the day that this case
was argued for the first time (March 19) the Legisla?
ture passed an act which provided that no execution
or final process in a mandamus, quo warrante or ha?
beas corpus should be stayed by reason of a writ of
error or appeal. That act could not apply, however,
to a writ ot quo warrante already granted, and being
contained in an act to regulate attachments, was ob?
noxious also to the sec.ion of the constitution just
Mr Miles then took up the Fourteenth Constitu?
tions! amendment, that while prior to its adoption
the United States Supreme Court bad no power to
revise tho actions of the States, except where there
was tua. ex post facto law or an impairing of contracts,
that court had now tho power to revise any state law
affecting the liberty, privileges and immunities of
the citizen. This amendment had for its object the
protection of tho colored people, and now it had be?
come the protection of those against whom it was
intended to protect-the weaker class. This Four?
teenth amendment did away with all precedents
prior to its adoption. The Supreme Court can do
what it could not do before. Tho Validating act de?
prives certain persons of the equal protection of thc
law, and the Fourteenth amendment will secure to
?hern that equal protection. Thus what seemed to
bo a sharp swerd will pn,ve our s,o:less shield. This
is what is expected hyw ?he Jjdiciary, the ??ia of
Tho Hon. W. D. Porter then opene 1 the closing
argument on the same- sidIntroducing his reason?
ing by im allusion to the importance of the eas" and
the magnitude of the interests involved in it, and by
a reference to the celebrated case of Rex vs. tho City
of London, he said that the City of Chariest -n was
no* on trial, not, it is true, foro lorfeitu o of charter,
but io invado her ancient charter ami the time-hon?
ored privileges of her citiz.ns. Thif was not pro?
posed to bo douo by a political process, but by a
legislrtivc enactment. Tho quest'on was one'o bc
trie 1 in tho courts, and thc acting Mayo.- and Alder?
men bad always been anxious that tho facts ehou'.d
go befoiea jury. This had been thwarted by the
demurrer of the claimants, who admitted thc fae's
and rested their whole claim upon tho validity of thc
act ot the Leyislaluo called the Validating act. "1 bc
whole caso wa' ponding because ihe quo wirrania
case ia the Supreme Court had not been properly
discontinued. This was plain and e i a.; : - >
upen the Strict tecbn'cal ground, tho act was void as

upon the hroade.- ground, the Legn'aiure
had no power to interfere, bceau-o tho cor?
porators who . contested the election are
in ?our' and have never been out of court. They
have filed their petition se'ting forth thc iilcgility o."
the elcctiou, and that i ctition has never been dis?
missed. Thp peiitionors still knoolr at thc doors
and ask (hat the case be triod. AU that the Supreme
Court decided w*s that thc Acting Board of Alder?
men iiiust dec oro who had received the largest
number of vote and the who'.o question as to the
va idiry of the olection and the illegality of the votes
cast was stiU before thc courts. Si ppose that it were
a q.cation as to tho validity of a title to a piero ol
laud, ard that whlla the cause was being tried the
Leot-^aturc passtd an act declaring that thc tl le to

court go on with tho cause or be bound by that ic ?
Tho court would so on. And the earn s principle ap

Mr. Porter showed that the act was discrimin?t

on untruth, and argued that whatever the (ruth

Mr. Potter explained the circumstances attendii:
the cases of Mount Pleasant, Tlmmonsvillc ai
Moultrieville, showing that thej did not bear upc
the present case, saying emphatically that the o:
Legislature of South Carolina never did undertake
inferiere with a contested election, outside of mei
bera of its own body. He called fur the enforcemei

that all laws shall be equal in their application, ai

Alter the recess of the court, tte Hon. D. T. Co
bin began the closing argument for tb .-claimant
O. Pills jury and others. He said that he approac!
ed the case with a fitting senso ol its importanc
and felt as deeply as any could do th" raomentoi
interests which it Involved. He said that prior
No vemos? 10, thc Acting Mayor and Aldermen he
office by virtue of mili ai y order?, the elections
1806, and the acts of 1608. But thc act to quid righ
under military order.? applied only to rights of pro
crty, and was in force to that end only, except as
persons holdng office wha would hold until the
successors were elected and qualified. Tait waa tl
only tenure by which they held. The othor ac
wore to tho tame effect. The elections of Novombi
10 were he'd under thc Municipal election law, at
if that law had been carried out, tho tenure-oi-olli
must have terminated, and if thc validity of thc eic
tionis sustained, thc Acting .Mayor atxTAldera?
min^ vacate. Mr. Corbin then stated tb- wbo.e ca
of thc cloctlou of November 101b, sayiug th
some import int points had beon omittct
doubtless? inadvertently ? thc statement mad
by thc O'berside. Ho sail tbat if the Mayor ba
promptly dec'arcd the e'.oction much trouble woul
havo boen avoided. He bad pleaded to the juiisdi
tion of the Actiug Board ol' Aldermen, claiming th;
they could docide betweeu candidates only, and ni
the legality of the e'ection. 'I ho irregularities i
the election were passed upon by the Suprem
Court, for it tho roaaous given by tho Ac'ing Boar
of Aldermen nad boen sufficient to vitiate thc elei
tion the court would not have granted the mondana,
or have said that ti e grounds were insufficient. Th
declaration wa? then made that G. Pillsbury an
other? received tho lugosi number of votes. Tba
was all that was accessary. The po-tenpt iu whici

the Aldermen, the case was argued and the cour
declared the return sufficient. Behind this thc res
pendents could not go. Whtro the Beard was wroni
was in not deciding between tho parties. If they hat
declared Mr. Lcsesne elected, the other party coull
have said and done noding. What they wanted wa
a decision, and they had it at last. Had the Boan
declared Tom Jones elected no one could have over?
come the decision. The question of fact, of whtct
counsel spoke, had been determined by the declara
tiona of the votes cast and could not be tried again
So the defendants declared themselves out of office
and Pillsbury and his Aldermen elected. In regan
to himself, as the matter took a rath-r persona
turn, he would say that he had done what he tx
lieved to be bis plain and simple duty. He was nol
shaken by the shirpness of adverse criticism, not
did ho retain any unkind (ealing. It was his dosin
to set tho whole cage at rest beyond all doubt whicl
cau-el him to draw up the Vaiiditiug act.
Mr. Corbin thcu reviewed the acts which form tbi
city charter, citing authority to show that the charte
was always subject lo the control acd revision by thi
General Assembly. Ibo city was chartered for pub
Ho purposes, and thero was no such thing as a veatei
right in it Tbe charter had beoa amended in ever;
possible way as it might properly be since tbe corpora
tion eiercisoJ its powers lu and by th: General As-em
bly, and not for thc benefit of thc citizens. Contract!
frith third persons could not be interfered with, bu
all else could bc changed, or even abolished. Tb
Legislature could confer legislativo powers on mu
nicipal bodies, but it had t!:c right to abolish then
without consulting thc wislitsof thc corporators.
Remedial statutes hold good when retrospective, cv?
if th?y interfere with vested rights, the principle be
hag that they refer to property and not to rights un
der putilic corporations tor public purpos.-s ; BC
that these chartered rights and vrst -d rights an not
recognized in law or fact, and only exist ia tho im?
agination of attot noyu. lu support of ihenc position!
