United States Court.
Wo publish tho following interesting
opinion of Hon. Geo. S. Bryan, United
States Judge of tho District of South Ca?
rolina, for ilie iiifuiin?ttO? Of the legal
The United States of America, District of
South Carolina, in the Circuit Court?
Charles Kerrison, assignee, vs. A. T.
Stewart tt at.
?ttpx concur in the conclusion reached by
'tho Circuit Judge, differing only with
him as to his view of tho Court hold in
Greenville. But in spito of that differ
once, and independently of it, coincide
in his judgment.
I hold to the construction of tho juris?
diction of tho District Court of Green?
ville, placed upon it nt the time of its'in?
stitution, und prevailing without dissent,
if I am properly advised, up to tho time
of these proceedings.
This Court has been held to bo a por?
tion of the Circuit Court system of the
State, and interchangeably, with the
Court held in Charleston pnd Columbia,
carried forward the bnsinu?.-. of all suitors
in the United States Courts of the State.
It is objected to this District Court, with
Circuit Court powers, that it cannot pos?
sess the authority and legal potency of a
Circuit Court, and cannot be regarded as
a Circuit Court, because it is not necessary
nor possible for tho Circuit Judgo pro?
per, (of recent institution,) nor an Asso?
ciate Judgo of Supremo Court, (originally
the Circuit Judge,) to bo present at the
sittings of tho Court. And it must bo
conceded that this objection would have
great if not conclusive force, if the pre?
sence of cither of these Judges were ne?
cessary to the constitution of a Cirouit
Court, or to tho legal holding of such
Court. By law it is otherwise. By the
recent Act creating the Cirouit Judgo
proper, as distinguished from the Asso?
ciate Judge of tho Supreme Court, (who
is also a Circuit Judge,) tho District
Judgo is clothed with all the authority of
a Circuit Judge, so far as tho original
business and jurisdiction of tho Cirouit
Court is concerned. In the absence of
either of these Judges, from whatever
cause, he is empowered to hold the Court,
and alono wield thu wholo authority of
the Court, in tho same manner and to the
same extent as could bo exorcised by
either, sitting alone or together with each
other, or with the District Judge. He
cannot, of course, hear an appeal from
himself as District Judge, sitting as Cir?
cuit Judge. This he cannot do in Green?
ville any more than in Charleston. But
the appeals have been and are made as
regularly from his decisions in the dbe
as in the other; and in both they are
made to one of the two Judges alono au?
thorized by law to hear such appeals.
The decisions of the District Judge, as a
District Judge, coming within the scope
of his authority, criminal or civil, as a
District Judgo, are subject, in the way of
appeal, to one or other of the Judges
having appellate jurisdiction over the
District Court of the State. The appel?
late jurisdiction aa to thw entire business
in bankruptcy, transacted in Greenville
or in Charleston, is subject to the same
authority, embracing the one jurisdiction
of tho State, and represented by tho
Judge who has common appellate juris?
diction of all District business proper
throughout the State.
Whero the District Judge in Greenville,
as in Charleston or Columbia, adminis?
ters, the authority and acts vtyv subjects
limited to the Circuit Court, and which
can only be administered by a Circuit
Judge proper, or the District Judge sit?
ting as a Circuit Judge, the appeals are
from him in this Court, as they would be
from him sitting as Circuit Judge in Co?
lumbia or Charleston directly to the Su?
preme Court. His authority, by law, is,
in either case, the same. He exercises
precisely the same authority, and his de?
cisions are to be dealt with in the same
way. By law he is made a Cirouit Judge,
as *I have stated, (with the limitation I
have mentioned,) in Charleston, Colum?
bia and Greenville. He oxercises the
whole authority of the Circuit Court, by
law, alike in Charleston, Greenville and
Columbia. And this authority restB upon
positive legislation, and finds its source
and vindication, in either case, in conve?
nience. Congress has fudged it conve?
nient and expedient that the District
Judge should exerciso the authority per?
manently and aJone in Greenville that he
exercises (with the limitations set forth
in the statutes i when sitting alone and
holding the Circuit Court in Charleston
or Columbia. It was as competent for
Congress to clothe him with this author?
ity in the ono cose as the other. And it
was deemed expedient, and it may be
even necessary, that tho Associate Judge
of the Supreme Court, who waR tho only
Cirouit Judgo when the Greenville Court
was instituted, should bp excusert from
attendance on it. A similar necessity
has called into oxintcnoe the intermediary
class of Circuit JudgcB, who are not As?
sociate Judges of the Supreme Court and
have no final appellate jurisdiction.
It is worthy of note that the class Of
courts to which tho Greenville Court be?
longs, as Conklin in his valuable treatise
observes, (4th ed., p. 266,) possess tho
authority to satisfy the exigency of the
twelfth section of the Judiciary Act,
which confers upon the oitizen tho right'
as a defendant to have the suit removed
to the "next Circuit Court to be held
whero tho suit is pending." A very re?
cent decision of the Supremo Court (18
Wallace, ez parte State Insurance Com- ;
puny,) no longor leaves this a question.
In dealing with the problem, whether
tho so-called Western District can bs
considered a judicial district in the legat,
and hiyhe.it seng? of the term, profitable
reference can again bo made to the
learned, careful and able text writer just
quoted. He says, after treating of tvcA
dictriots, beyond question such: "But of
several other States sub-divisions have
been made of so anomalous a character,
