judges of the supremo court met Inside of

ered tho following opinion on tho rotation
of Joseph Iirooks vs. Henry 1'agc, itato
trcaiuror, application for mandkmui.
Opinion of Chief Justice McClure: Ttio
twelfth soctlon of chapter 1C1 reads as
For the purpoie of carrying Into fleet
tho object and directions of the recti".,
last proceeding, tho further sum of 150,000
shall bo and ii hereby appropriated and
placed at the dUpnsal of the govornor, to
bo drawn from the treasury under war
rants from tho auditor, to bo luucd on
re'juiiUlon. of the governor for the pur
poses specified in tho precoedlng section,
and for no other purpose. Tho fourth
section, to which tho above refcrcme Is
made, Is ai followi :
Skc. 11. Tbejgovernor ii hereby nu
thorUed and It is made his duty to super
intend generally everything required to
be dono by this act, and lee that every
branch of tho service ii properly conduct
ed, and to loo that the laws of the state
are fully and cfliclontly enforced through
out tho utmost lltnlu thereof, and If the
laws cannot bo enforced by ordinary
means, nor by the moans h'nrclnbefure
presented, it is hereby mado tho duty ot
the governor as soon as It may appear to
bo neeessary, to order out and organize
such a number of thu militia of this state
as tbo service may rcqulrf, and with the
military force take possciiien of tho
county, and expel tberetrom or lulzj and
bring to trial all disorganized and disaf
fected persons without delay, and koep
possession of all such by force until order
Is restortd, and tho sovereignty and laws
of Ar.aniai acknowledge! and obeyed.
From the ploadtngv it appoars that the
relator, Joiph Iirooks, styling himself
governor of Arkansas, made a requisi
tion for ono thousand dollars on the ap
propriation made by the twelfth section of
the act referred to; and that tbo auditor
in obodience to laul requisition drew his
warrant on tho treAiurer for tho amount
specified therein; and that said treasurer
rofusod to my said warrant or issue treas
urer's certificates therefor. In response
to the prayerof the petition tho treasurer
admits bisrefuialto pay said warrant,
and submiti that ho is not bound to do so,
becauio KL'sha Ilaxter was declarod duly
elected governor, that ho took the oath o"f
ntllcc, etc, and that, In fact, said Baxtor is
the governor of the stato of Arkoniai,
and not tho relator, Joseph Iirooks.
To tho response tho relator flies re
plication, alledging that by tho JuJg-
incm o: tuo circuit courtot rulmkl coun
ty, ho was adjudged tho oQco of govornor.
That ho took tho oath of oSlco, etc., and
onterod upon tho discharge of tho duties
thereof, etc. To tho replication a demur
rer is tllod, tbo grounds being that said
judgomont is not sulllciont in law to main
tain an action. Tho only question that
wo deem il necessary to notice is, did tbo
circuit court havo j'iriidlctton to render
tbo judgment In the caso of Drools vs.
liaxtor. Wo feel soino delicacy about ex
pressing an opinion upon the question
propounded, but under the pleadings it
hai to bo pas'od upon incidentally, il not
absolutely. In doterming whether tho
relator is'ontltled to rollof askod for, hie
right to the ntllre, if established at all, Is
eitabllshed by the judgment of tbo circuit
court of Pulaski county. Wo aro of tho
opinion that tho circuit court baa juris
diction of tho tubjoct matter, and its
judgment appears to bo regular and valid.
Itavlnr nrrtvod at those conclusions, tuo
demurrer Is overruled and the writ of
mandiimas will bo as prayed for.
