assistant attorney general, which was

of Gov. Manning. Many counties

The opinion of the assistant attorney
general relative to the employment
of a constabulary by the governor
"Hon. Rich. I. Manning, Governor, Colombia,
"Dear Sir: I am in receipt of yours
of t':e oth inst., in whici'n you say:
" 'Please advise me as to the authorits
of tr.e governor in appointing constables
to enforce the dispensary law.
and whether he ::?-s J e authority to
determine the number of constables
employed in tine counties and to fix
their salaries, and what has been the
custom of the governor in ti ese mutters.'
"Section 840 of the criminal code,
1912, provides as follows:
"'It shall be the duty of the sheriffs,
and- their deputies, magistrates, constables,
rural police, city and town
officials, to enforce the provisions of
this chapter. If they fail to do so, it
is (hereby made the duty of the gov
ernor to enforce the same, and lie is
hereby authorized to appoint suc;i
deputies, constables and detectives as
may be necessary, the salaries and
expenses of such officers to be paid out
of the profits of the dispensaries in
counties wherein they may be established,
and out of the ordinary county
funds in counties wherein tfrey havs
not been established: Provided. That
the supervisor of Colleton county
shall be prohibited from paying any
dispensary constables for work in sai.l
tfvmntv out nf anv (funds in the hands
\ of tfce said county supervisor: Provided,
also. That tJiie county supervisor
and county board of commissioners of
said county of Colleton are hereby authorized
and directed to pay the magistrate
and his constable ten dollars
each for every case sent in sessions
court by them where a conviction is
had with production of defendant.'
"Under tiae statute quoted, tfae gov
erncr has full power generally to ap- j
point such deputies, constables and dotectives
as may be necessary for t'.ie I
j en orcement of the dispensary law. j
i Unless otherwise provided by special j
statute the governor has the authority .
i to determine the number of constables |
! employed in a county and to fix their !
salaries. TV is, as I understand it, has ,
not only been the custom of the gov-1
ernors in such matters, but is the law. j
