1872, should there be a deficiency of tunda In

then and in that event the State treasurer

gation as State treasurer for the same, and
that such obligation should be good und bind?
ing, on the State, and should be paid ont of

and credit of the State a sufficient amount to
cancel the pay certificates of the members
. and subordinates of the General Assembly,
Issued by the clerks of both Houses, and
bearing the signatures or the president of the

5. That by the act of the General Assembly,

Senate and the clerk of the House of Repre?
sentatives were authorized to provide by con?
tract lor the permanent and current printing
of the General Assembly, provided that Bald

hanses should first cerlUy that said accounts

that the saki work had been performed In pur?
suance of contract, and that the amount

main lng unpaid; that afterwards, to wit, on
?ie first day of February, 1871, a contract as
provided for by .the act last mentioned, was
made by and between the clerks of the two
houses of the General Assembly of the one
part, and the Republican Printing Company of

8. That in the action recently lnstltt
lu this court by Thomas J. Gibson
Henry M. Gibson, as copartners, and Will
B. Galick as assignee, plaintiffs against
said Niles G. Parker in his proper person,
as State treasurer of South Carolina, and J
C. DuPre us county treasurer of Abbev
and the other connty treasurers ol the i
State, defendants, on affidavit subscribed
sworn to by the Bald N. G. Parker, and da
June 26, 1872, was produced and present
whereby lt appears that up to that date ?
during the last fiscal year ending 31st Oe toi
1872, there had been paid by the State tn
urer for public printing one hundred and t
teen thousand three hundred and seventy-!
62-100 dollars ($113,374 62-100.) and for legi
tive expenses the sum of four hundred s
seventy-two thousand six hundred and sb
Biz 65-100 dollars ($472,666 65-100.) of wh
amount thirty thousand eight hundred doll
($30,800) were for legislative expenses at
session of 1370 and 1871, and the residue, ii
hnndred and forty-one thousand eight bundi
and sixty-six 65-100 dollars ($441,866 65-1
for expenses ot the Generar Assembly
its session last past, and thal a addlt!
thereto, he (said N. G. Parker) had paid i
j certificates of the members and subordina
-of the General Assembly to the amount
three hundred and ninety-nine thousand thi
hundred and twelve 72 100 dollars ($399,1
72-100), with money which he had borrrow
for that purpose, and for repayment of wbl
be bad Issued his promissory notes as SK
treasurer under the supposed authority ct
ferred by the Bald joint resolution of March
9. That In his aforesaid affidavit -the sf
State treasurer, N. G. Parker, further stat
that moneys have been paid ont by cont
treasurers on warrants drawn upon the trei
ury and endorsed by him (said Parker) to
so paid, but that he (said Parker) cannot s
to what amount, or in whose favor such wt
rants were drawn, as he kept no registry
the same, and that by the tenor of his (sa
Parker) endorsements of the same, tbe cou
ty treasurers were authorized to pay sn
warrants, and to return them to the treasu
10. That the amounts which may be di
under tbe contracts herein above referred t
for the permanent and current printing
the General Assembly,, and the republican
ot certain volumes of the statutes at larg
"aro not capable of being ascertained by i
examination of the action of the Leglslatu
alone, and can only be determined after s
certainlng the amount of work performed 1
the direction and with the sanction of tl
General Assembly"-that no specific sn
has been appropriated to pay for tl
work to be performed under such contract
and this plaintiff is advised "there ls no leg
limit to the amount or money that may In ac
year be demanded under those contracts
and lt may well be doubted whether any e
fectual appropriation has been made, whic
will authorize the payment or any money
whatever ont or the public treasury under th
contracts referred to; and this plaintiff is fm
ther advised that the act and joint resolutlo
ot the .General Assembly herelnabove refei
red to, which assumes to authorize the Sta!
treasurer to borrow upon the credit or th
State such an amount or money as may b
sufficient for the payment of the pay cei
neates of the members and subordinate o ill
cers oj the General Assembly, In conflict wltl
sundry provisions of the Constitution ot thl
State, andar? therefore Ineffectual and void
and that the promissory notes executed by th
said State treasurer for moneys borrowed un
der the authority of such act and joint r?solu
Uon are of no validity as lawful debts or de
manda against the said State, anti may no
therefore be paid out of the public treasury.
11. That no special tax has been Imposed o
authorized to be assessed or levied tor pay
ment of the pay certificates of the member
and subordinate officers of the General Assem
bly, or for pay ment of any sums claimed to b
doe for current and permanent printing of tin
General Assembly, for the republication of cer
tain volumes of the statutes at large, and lt I
confidently submitted that all and slngula
the appropriations made for payment ot sud
demands, even-though such appropriation
were free from all objection, must be post
poned in payment ont of the proceeds of thi
tax directed to be levied by the Joint r?solu
Hon ol March 13th, 1872, until each and all o
the speoiflc appropriations made by the Gene
ral Assemblyiln Its appropriation act for the
fiscal year commencing November 1st, 1871
have been first fully paid and satisfied.
12. That during the fl seal year last past, thc
moneys in the State treasury have been almos!
wholly absorbed by payment of the pay certifi?
cates of the members and subordinate officers
of the general assembly, and accounts lor pub?
lic printing certified by the clerks ot the Senate
and House of Representatives, as herelnabove
mentioned, while the salaries or the Judges
and the other officers or the State, and the
special appropriations for the support or the
State University, and the State Institutions
tor the relief of the Insane, and the punish?
ment and repression ot crime, have been
almost wholly withheld and remain yet un?
paid; that pay certificates of the members and
subordinate officers and employees of the Gen?
eral Assembly, and formally certified accounts
for public printing done, as this plaintiff ls in?
formed and believes, are still outstanding and
unpaid; that some of these demands have been
assigned to and are held by the South Carolina
Bank and Trust Company, and for secur?
ing their payment, this plaintiff is assured that
the said Hardy Solomon now holds.orders
drawn by the said Parker, State treasurer,
upon the county treasurer of Charleston, to
the amount of nearly seventy thonsand dollars,
and that J. L. Neagle ls also the holder, by as?
signment of like demands against the State, to
an amount which ls believed to be more than
one hundred thonsand dollars; that this plain?
tiff la further Informed and believes that the
holders of the said pay certificates and certi?
fied accounts against the State, are very nu?
merous aod many of them are wholly un?
known to him, and the plaintiff here Indicates
ss proper representatives of them, and to be
made parties defendant, according to the
course and practice of the court, the said
South Carolina Bank and Trust Company and
J. L. .Neagle.
ll. That this plaintiff at the recent general
election was elected the treasurer of the said
Btate, to succeed the present State treasurer,
the said Niles G. Parker, but cannot, as be
(said plaintiff) ls advised, enter upon the per?
formance or blB official dutleB before the ap?
proaching session or the General Assembly;
that In the meantime, however, the tax to'
meet appropriations for the fiscal year last
past, which is Imposed by the Joint resolution
or the General Assembly, approved March 13
1872, will become payable, and the collection
of the Bame by the county treasurers will have
begun; that sundry facts and circumstances
have recently come to the Knowledge of this
plaintiff, showing that lt ls the purpose and
intention ol the said N. G. Parker to lay hands
apon BO mach ot the proceeds of 'the tax last
mentioned as may be collected before this
pia!min* shall have entered upon the per
iormance of his official dnties as State treasu?
rer, and to dispose of the same, aa he has done
with the bulk of the money in the treasury
during the last fiscal year, In payment of
the notes given by him as State treasurer
as aforesaid, anil lo payment of yet
outstanding pay certificates , of the members
and subordinate officers of the General As?
sembly and the certified accounts for public
printing done; that it ls necessary to detail
those facts and circumstances, for within the
last two days the said N. G. Parker. State
treasurer, announced in person to this plain?
tiff that he bad the power under the law to
pay the outstanding pay certificates, and
other demands aforesaid, for payment where?
of no special tax is imposed prior and in pre?
cedence to the special appropriations made by
the general appropriation act of March 13,
1872, and that, he intended to exercise that
power, and defied this1 plaintiff to prevent
him; and this plaintiff further alleges that be
1B informed, and confidently believes, the
Suite treasury bas been empty for many
months past, and be alleges that If the said
N. G. Parker, State treasurer, shall be per?
mitted to dispose of the proceeds of the said
Incoming tax for the purpose proposed by
him, as berelnabove stated, such action on his
part must Inevitably produce most disastrous
consequences, and may result In the actual
suspension or disruption of the entire govern?
ment of the State.
Wherefore, the plaintiff demands Judgment
as well on his own behalf as on behalf of all
taxpayers and citizens of said State ; that as
[ to the proceeds of the tax authorized to be
levied by the aforesaid Joint resolution of the
General Assembly approved March 13, 1872,
I the said slate treasurer, Niles G. Parker, his
I attorneys, counsellors, assistants and ageu ts,
oe enjoined from uBtng, appropriating, or In
any manner disposing of the same or any part
thereof, for any purpose whatever; except in
payment of the . appropriations contained in
the general appropriation act for the fiscal
year last past, approved March 13th, 1872, un?
til those appropriations have been fully satis?
fied and paid, and that the. said N. G. Parker
as State treasurer, be especially and abso?
lutely enjoined from paying ont of the pro?
ceeds of the said tax now about to be levied
any outstanding pay certificates of the mem?
bers and subordinate officers or employees of
the General Assembly, or any certified ac?
counts for public priding done, or any note
br notes, obligation or obligations made by
him for money borrowed under the authority
ot the act and Joint resolution of the General
Assembly, In that behalf, herelnabove men?
tioned ; and that each of the county treasur?
ers of the State, the defendants in this
action, be enjoined from using or dispos
lng of any part of the proceeds of the
said tax, for the fiscal year last past, and now
about to be levied, which may come into their
hands respectively tor the purpose of paying
any note or obligation of the said Niles G.
Parker, or any order or check made or en?
dorsed by bim, or any pay certificates of any
member or subord?nale officer of the General
Assembly, whether endorsed by the said Niles
G. Parker, for payment by any county treasu?
rer or not, or any account of public printing,
certified by the clerks respectively ef the
Senate and House of Representatives; and that
each of the said county treasurers be enjoined
lrom using or disposing of any portion of the
proceeds of the said tax, save only the county
tax, for any purpose whatever, except for
payment of the same Into the treasury of the
State; and that such other and further relief
may be granted td the plaintiff as may be Just,
together with the coats of this action.
