OPINION OF THE COURT.
CHAMBERS, SUPREME COURT,
COLUMBIA, August 15, 1868.
The State ex rel. Attorney-General
vs. Thomas P. Walker.
Willard, A. J. The Attorney-Gene?
ral, in behalf of the State, has filed
a suggestion and obtained a rule to
show cause for the purpose of oust?
ing the respondent from the office of
Coroner of Bichland County. The
respondent has appeared and made
claim to exercise and enjoy the office
in question, under an appointment
to that office made by the Governor
of the State, and hos produced a
commission therefor, bearing date
the 21st day of December, 1864. He
claims that by the tenure under
which he holds said office his term
will not expire until tho 21st day of
December, 1868. On the other hand,
it is claimed, in behalf of the State,
that William B. Johnston is tho law?
ful Coroner of Richland County, aud
holds under commission from the
present Governor, and has duly
qualified, and has demanded of the
respondent possession of all matters
appertaining to said ?office, and that
the respondent has refused to delivor
the same to said Johnston.
The question at issue is, the right
of the respondent to hold aud exer?
cise the office of Coroner. Accord?
ing to tho case presented, iu behalf
of tho State, tho termination of tho
right of tho respondent to hold the
office in question depends upon the
due election or appointment, as the
caso may be, of Johnston, and his
having qualified therefor under tho
provisions of the Constitution of tho
The title by which Johnston claims
the office in question having arisen
while the State was under military
government, in pursuance of the au?
thority of the acts of Congress, com?
monly known as the Acts of Recon?
struction, it is contended by the
counsel for tho respondent that such
title is nugatory and void, the au?
thority by which such military go?
vernment acted being in derogation
of the rights of South Carolina as a
State under the Constitution of the
United States. The precise question
presented before the Court, as involv?
ing tho merits of the present contro?
versy, is whether tho supreme au?
thority invested undur the Acts of
Congress with powers of military go?
vernment over persons and property
within the State of South Carolina,
regarded as a part of the Second
Military District, could rightfully
terminate the right of the respond?
ent to hold the office in question, and
vest in tho chunumt, Johnston, a right
and title to said office, which can be
recognised nuder tue existing Con?
stitution and laws of the State, lt
is not denied that Congress sought
to oonfer such power, and that the
commanding officer representing the
military authority within such Mili?
tary District has assumed its exor?
The practice established under the
statutes of tho State authorizes a
Judge of the Appellate Court to hear
and determine, at chambers, ques?
tions of this character, and to award
such judgment as the nature of the
case may demand. The grounds of
this jurisdiction need not be stated,
as they were not the subject of con?
test in this case.
The issuo involved in this case is
one of momentous importance, both
as affecting tho validity of acts of
public authority, to which legal inte?
rests of great magnitude, both pub?
lic and private, have become con?
formed, and un the first appeal to tho
Judiciary, under the present Consti?
tution of the State, upon grounds
that have formed tho subject of ex?
citing forensic discussion, and which
can oui y coin maud acquiescence whoa
fairly brought to the test of estab?
lished principles of constitutional
and statutory construction.
In view of tb,e peculiar --.nature of
the question at issue, it is due that
the position assumed by the respond?
ent's eui u sol .should bo succinctly
stated. Tho foundation of the title
of ibo respondent is claimed to be
tho Constitution of this State, adopt?
ed June 3, 1790, and the amend?
ments thereof, and tho statutes
passed in pursuunce of such authori?
ty. It is contended that he is enti?
tled to the enjoyment of the full
term of fonv years, from his appoint?
ment and commission; on the
grounds-first, that, by the tenure of
his office, ho has an indefensible
right or property in the same for the
full term originally created, aa
against auy public authority whatso?
ever; and, second, that no rightful
authority existed or could exist
under any Act of Congress, compe?
tent to terminate tho term of office
created by aud under the Constitu?
tion and laws of South Carolina.
It is argued, that South Caroline
is, and bas been, from a time earliei
than tho Constitutiou of the Uniter
States, a sovereign ; that, by a dele
gatton of express powers, incapable
by its terms, of being enlarged bj
implication, sho purted with to th?
United States no rights in deroga
tion of her sovereignty; that be:
ancient Constitution and laws eve
have been and are the only tests o
validity and legality iu relation to al
matters of internal government, am
afford tho only electoral basis upot
which rightful authority can stau<
within tho State; that, ns a State, sh
is aud always has been unaffected ii
her legal rights and immunities, bot
ns sovereign and under the Const itu
tion of the United States, by tb
recent rebellion and its legal an
political results and consequence;
that the rebellion was a matter bi
tween the citizens of the State an
the Federal authority, that did nc
concern or affect her rights as a Stat?
that the only consequence that cool
rightfully follow the successful arn
of the United States, was the arrei
and punishment of the individua
engaged in rebellion, under tho Coi
stitution of tho United States, i
That, the constitutional relatioi
of the State to tho United Stat
remaining unchanged, notwithstan
ing the war, it was not compeieut f
Congress to prescribe the calling of
Convention to frame for us a Cons
tution and form of government, n
io prescribe and define an electoi
basis unknown to ber Constitutio
j in furtherance of such parp?se.
It was also contended, that t
Constitution of 1865 and the terms
I adjustment imposed by the Preside
? of the United States, wore accept
under a duress of circumstauc?
leaving the State without freedom
accept or reject them.
Considering tho first ground p
seuted by the argument, namely, tl
tho tenure of tho office of Corot
was unalterably placed beyond t
power of thc State to destroy
diminish it, it is clearly a misconct
tion of the nature of au office,
existing under our system of gove:
ment. The office in question \
not an estate held by grantor pate
but a power held by commission
aud from the people, for whoso sak
was enjoyed, upon certain prescril
terms and conditions, and by wh
tho authority delegated could
withdrawn, whenever the public v
fare-the suprema lex-demanded
Theremaining ground of nrgura
must bo examined by the light of
powers conferred upon Congn
and inhibited to the States by
Constitution of the United Sta'
and gives rise to two questions-fi
whether the State, as such, beca:
by the existence of the war of rel
lion, subjected to the war pov
lodged in tho Government of
United States; and, second, whet!
by the terms and proper effect of I
instrument, those powers worf
limited as to place beyond tl
sphore the rights and murnini
claimed for South Carolina in

of the United States be prop

these, is tlie general grant of power,
applicable alike to its civil and mili
i tary frinnt?pns, implied bj tho decla?
ration.of theVohjects of tho establish
? merri;bf tho Union-namely, to
? establish justice, insure domestic
I tranquility, provide for the common
defeuce, promote the general welfuro
and secure the blessings of liberty to
the nation (preamble.) To this
should be added, the right to make
all laws which shall be necessary and
proper for carrying into execution
the foregoing powers and all other
powers vested by the Constitution in
the Government of tba United States,
or in any department or officer there?
of, (Article 1, Section 8.) This am?
ple charter of war powers, as full aud
completo as that enjoyed by any Go
.vermneut recognized us possessing
national attributes, confers upon the
Federal Government power to deter?
mine as to the causes and conditions
upon which these powers should be
put in exercise, the ends towards
which they should be addressed, and
the means appropriate to the attain?
ment of those ends, so long ns they
belong to thu class known as war
Tho question then arises, eau a
State become the proper subject of
the exercise of these war powers?
The geueral proposition bearing
upon this subject is that any orgau
ized community capable of creating
and wielding milita:y power can be
both actor and subject in relation to
the exercise of such powers. The
States of the Union hnving nt theil
command orguuized militia, capable
of raising, arming and maintaining
troops, and of procuring munitions
aud supplies of war, are clearly com
peteut to engage in war, except sc
far as that competency is interfered
with by the Constitution of thc
United States. That instrument acte
only upon their legal capacity tc
make war, not upon their power t<
maintain war when once lawfully
made. It recognizes, in curtail
cases, the right of a State to defonc
itself by means belonging to war
when placed in jeopardy, and tim
is not allowed to invoke the militar
aid of theUnited States. In a word
if any case can arise under the Con
8titution where the Government o
tho nation would be justified ii
bringing the constitutional powers c
tho Government to bear Upon th
State for the accomplishment of
lawful end, resisted by the State, th
necessity of a resort to arms wonl
arise from the very fact that the sui
ject of these powers in tho give
case was an organized commuait
possessed inherently of ! militar
powers. Turning, then, to tho Coi
stitution, we find that such a cas
I may arise, but is most likely to occn
under the provisions inhibiting ce
tain powers to the States, natneb
I that to euter into any treaty albano
i or confederation, or grant letters <
marque and reprisal, (Article 1, Sei
tion 10.) It is not enough to say tin
the Constitution executes itself I
instantly ann niling such transa
tious, for the prohibited alliance <
confederation might exist for tl
very purpose of destroying th;
Coustitution-as was the case in tl
war of rebellion; nor would tho leg
invalidity of letters of marque ai
reprisal accomplish that protection
commerce intended to be secured 1
the constitutional provision und
considerutiou. It is, therefore, fr
from doubt that u State may, consi
toutly with the Constitution, pla
herself in such a position ns to L
come rightfully subject to the w
powers of the nation.
This leads to the inquiry whoth
the State of South Carolina occupi
such au attitude to the Governme
of tho United States. She passe
as a State, an ordinance of secessi
that was the immediate causo of t
war; she made an alliance and cc
federacy with certain other States,
violation ot the express prohibit!
of the Constitution. With her cc
I federates, she made war, in the fu
est sense, against the nation; raise
armed and maintained, at the pub
cost, armies and a navy, to oppc
tho military power of tho Unit
States. Sho put in commissi
officers to command ber armies a
navies, and imposed taxes for t
maintenance of a state of war. J
this was done by the State as an in
vidual, and ns a member of a con f ci
ration of States; and thus assum
an attitude that rendered it necesst
either that tho United States shot
relinquish the Union and the Cc
stitution, or put in operation all 1
rights and energies as a sovereij
capable of making and maintain]
Having this right, the next qu
tion that arises is, did she exercise
All the departments of the Gove
ment have, each in its proper sphe
recognized the fact that the war,
rebellion, was carried on agai
States and not against the individu
composing these States, exclusive
the participation of the States thc
President Lincoln, by his proclai
tion of August 16, 1861, docln
that an insurrection against the la
Constitution and Government of
United States had broken oat in c
tain States, including South Carob
that he bad called forth tho mili
under tue Aot of February ,28;.1795,
to suppress sdob; insurrection, an cl to
cause the laws to be o\8?n?od, and
that the insurgents bad failed" to'-flis
pe?so; that other _ States had since
become involvisu therein. He states :
"And whereas, the insurgents in all
tho tstiiu otates claim co aot under tho
authority thereof, and such claim is
not disclaimed or repudiated by the
persons exercising the functions of
Government in snob State or States,
or in the part or parts thereof in
which such combinations exist; nor
has such insurrection been suppressed
by said States,-he, therefore, declares
that the inhabitants of said States,
excepting West Virginia, are in a state
of insurrection against tbe United
States, and that all commercial inter?
course between them and other parts
of the United States is unlawful, and
certain property was declared subject
to forfeiture. This was an Executive
declaration, recognizing tho fact
that tho rebellion had developed
itself as a rebellion of certain States
as organized communities; hence he
does not distinguish, in dealing with
them, between citizens of those
States who wero implicated person?
ally in the rebellion and those which
abstained from such action ; but treats
all inhabitants alike, as necessarily
was the case where the State of which
they were members had assumed the
attitude of war.
The same general conclusions were
embraced in the joint resolutions of
tho Senate and House of Representa?
tives, adopted July 22, 1863. The
rebellion was there characterized as c
war directed against tho Constitution
and Government of the United
States, and the object of that war,
on the part of the United States, was
declared to bo to defend and maintain
the supremacy of the Constitution
and to preserve the Union, with al
the dignity, equality and rights ol
the several States unimpaired, anc
that as soon as these objects were ao
compiished, the war ought tu cease
The Supremo Court had the quas
tion of the status of the rebellioi
before thom in 2 Black, 635, and re
garded the war as formal and justi
lied by the circumstances, as ade
quately declared under the provision
of the Act of July 13, 1861, and as
war against States organized in re
hellion, and held that the laws o
war relative to capture and condom
nation were operative. Thus it wi!
be seen that the State of South Co
roi i na, capable of being placed ii
such a relation to the General Gc
vernment as to involve herself in th
consequences and effects of war wit
that power, actually occupied thc
position as the consequence of he
own action; that the Government pt
in exercise its constitutional powen
and continued to exercise the sam
until she re-entered the Union, nnd<
her present Constitution, bavin
complied with tho terms and cond
tions exacted by the war power <
?the Government, ns essential to tl:
accomplishment of the objeots ft
which the war was waged.
It is not within the compotenc
of a State tribu nil to declare tbi
tho objects sought in tue war wei
not legitimate, and the means witl
out the Constitution, so long as thc
properly belong to tho class of wi
powers. The United States havir
entered and reduced the State in tl
right of conquerors, succeeded 1
tho laws of war to tho local powe
of Government, displaced by marti
authority', and while so invested wi
as full and legitimate local aathorit
under the laws of war, as the Sta
had enjoyed under the Constitute
previous to the war, and a termin
tion not having been put to the sta
of war by the concurrent action
the constitutional powers to who
belonged the restoration of pea
and the stipulation of the terms ai
conditions on which it should d
pend, passed certain ordinances
among which was ono providing f
the calling of a Convention of ti
people to reframo tho Government
the State-and prescribing thejelecl
ral basis upon which ?uch Gover
ment should exist. With the polii
and necessity of such legislation, tl
Court has no concern, nor can
rightfully determino whether t
other conditions of pacification we
necessary or appropriate; it can lo
no farther than to see that the pow?
exercised are of the olass conferr
upon the United States; nor can
find any ground to ailinn that Cc
gresn ha? traveled beyond the sec
of these powers.
