j HOLDING MORE THAN ONE OFFICE
A VIOLATION OF CONSTITUTION
'The Record has received the following
statement of the facts as to
the law in legard to persons holding
more than one office in this state, the
author of ilie statement being a well
known lawyer who has kept himself informed
on this subject:
I observe the following in your is
- ' TT TT
sue of yesterday: .viaj. jus. n. xxammond,
who Friday was elected a trustees
of the Citadel academy, defeating
Col. W. ;V.V. Lewis, chairman of the
hoard, saM that it is not his intention
lo retire from the legislature, but he
vill offer for re-election to the house
of representatives. He considers that
being a trustee of a state college does
rot d?sqtia'];l> any more man u:b commission
as r.otary. IMaj. Hammond is
yn alumnus of the Citadel."
I desire to call the attention of my
friend. Maj. Hammond, and also to
your readers the following: Sec. 535,
Vol.11., of t^e Criminal Code reads as
">Sec. 53r>. Assumption of office before
qualifying and being commis
sioned.?It shall be unlawful for any
person to assume the duties- of any
public office until he has taken the
oath provided by the constitution, and
been regularly commissioned by the
Governor. The term "public officers"
shall be construed to mean all officers
of the state that have heretofore been
commissioned., the trustees of the various
colleges of the state, members of
various 'boards, and other persons
whose duties are defined by law."
Section 24, Article III. of the 'State
constitution reads as follows:
"Sec. 24. Holding Two Offices.?
No person shall be eligible to a seat
in the general assembly while he
holds any office or position of profit
or trust under this state, the United
Stats of America, or any of them, or
under any other power except officers
in the militia and notaries public, and
if any member shall accept or exercise
any of the said disqualifying offices
or positions he shall vacate his seat."
Also Article II., sectio-n 2 of the
'constitution reads as follows:
"But no persons shall hold two offi!
ces of honor or profit at the same
time: Provided, That any person holding
another office, may, at the same
time, be an officer in the militia or a
In construing tnese sections of the
statutes and constitution, the former

attorney general, J. r J<isci ?JJ\slx, u.& j
will be found in his reports to the gen- i
eral assembly says:
"A school trusteeship is an office
and a person holding this position can
not, at the same time, hold another
office in this state."
In another opinion he held:
"It is unlawful for a person to hold
the office of school trustee and. at the
same time hold the office of town
In another opinion he 'n^ld:
"That the probate judge of Union
county could not hold the office of
, school trustee under the constitution."
It would seem from these sections
and from an opinion rendered by the
circuit court and afterwards affirmed
by the supreme court that Maj. Hammond
is mistaken in his position, unless
custom makes law when the constitution
is made applicable to members
of the legislature, as there are
several of them today violating this
same Ja-w. Personally we have no interest
in this matter, hut we expect to
support Maj. Hammond for re-election
and he is the only member of the house
delegation of this county that we shall
support, and we would dislike to Bee
him disqualify himself.

Norfolk, Va? Feb. 1.?Given up for
j lost days ago, the British passenger
j liner Appam, plying in the West AfriI
can trade, appeared like an apparition
j in Hampton Roads today, flying the
German naval ensign, and with her
ship's company under guard of a German
prize crew. She brought word of
a mysterious German commerce raider,
'the Moewe. which now roams the seas,
i and had on board the crews of seven
British merchantmen and admiralty
transports captured by the Moewe before
she seized the Appam and started
her across the Atlantic for an American
port, with Lieut. Hans Berge of
the German naval reserve and twentytwo
men in charge. The Appam now
lies oil Old Point Comfort, under the
guns of Fortress IV'to-nroe. waiting for
ihe state department at Washington to
I determine her status?whether she is
| a man-of- war subject to internment
or a German prize. By tomorrow the
customs authorities here hope to have
orders* to send the ship either to Norfolk
or Newport News, where the anxiously
awaited British civilians will be
According to the story, told "with
great reserve by Lieut. Berge to Collector
Hamilton when he formally re
ported his presence in American
waters late" today, the Moewe captured
the Appam, bound from Dakar, French
West Africa, for Liverpool, after a
brief show of resistance, on January
16, sixty miles north of the Madeira
islands. On board the Moewe then
were the crews of five vessels, previously
captured, all of whom were
transferred to the Appam,
From all reports the raider is a converted

On January 17 she engaged in battle
an armed Australian trader, the Clan
McTavish, which she sank after an
exciting combat, with a loss of fifteen
men killed on the Clan McTavish.
The Appam, which was ten miles
away at the time, in charge of the
prize crew, steamed back to the scene
and rescued four members of the crew
of the sinking Clan McTavish, who
were struggling in the water.
Later, under orders from the commander
of the raider, Lieut. Berge
headed his prize for an American port
and parted company with the Moewe.
Nothing has been seen or heard of the
raider since, and the L4<ppam steamed
across the ocean on an uneventful
fvoyage, reaching the Virginia Capes
at 5:45 this morning.
On board the Appam all told are 452
persons?the prize crew of 23; 20 German
r-iviliflns who were on their way
to England for internement; 138 seamen
captured with the British steamships;
116 passengers on the Apparo i
and the Appam's crew of 155.
Lieut. Berge claims the Appam is a
prize of war, but government officials
have not yet accepted this view. She
had one mounted rifle aboard when
captured, but this was removed by the
Moewe, and there were no guns aboard |
| when she reached port except sman
arms carried by the prize crew.
Record of the Moewe.
On January 10 the (Moewe captured
and sank the British steamship Farringford,
carrying 500 tons of copper
ore. Later on the same day she captured
the British steamship Corbridge
with a cargo of 6 000 tons of coal. The
Moewe did not sink the vessel, but
sent a crew aboard and held her as a

her eorga of $5,000 tons of wheat.
Next, day. January 16, there appeared
the biggest prize of all, the Jiner

merchandise, including a large quanity
of cocoa. Whether the Appam of
fered any resistance has not been definitely
established. It is said that one
or two shots wtre fired, but there was
no real fight.
Capture of Appam,
The Moewe approached tne uner

close enough to cross the Appam's

On Saturday afternoon the Anderson
College Alumnae association held
its regular meeting at the home of
JMts. James P. Kinard. Several interesting
topics for discussion were
brought forward by the association,
chief among which was a course of
study for the coming year. It was

of t'ne World," and to begin with-the
Italian school. '
The idea of co-operating with the
College association in the proposed
educational bazaar which is to be held
in Andercon the last week in February,
was also discussed and a definite plan
for helping was decided upon. .The
alumnae of Anderson college will
have a booth at the bazaar, will decorate
it witli college emblems and will
supply it with fancy work. After the
business session Mrs. Kinard served
a delicious sweet course with coffee.
Tiose present were Hiss Margaret
Clinkscales, president;'Mrs. James P.
Kinard, Miss Lucile Burriss, Miss
E^zabeth Lawrence, Miss Leota
George and Miss Eunice Shealy.
The senior class was most delightfully
entertained at dinner Saturday
i c, oTiiror hi* Iffcc Stranflthan head of
the department of voice, who is sponsor
for the class of 1916. The table
was gay with the class colors, lavender
and white, and with bowls of violets
and pots of white primroses,
which further carried out the color
scheme. The place cards, whic'n were
made by cleverly attaching a kodak
picture of each guest to the figure of
somp popular advertisement, were a
great source of merriment After a
delicious five course dinner, an evening
a rare enjoyment for the class of
1916 was concluded with the singing
of class and college songs.
After a hard fought game, the basket
ball team was defeated by the
Woman's college at Due West last
Monday by a score of 34 at 21. Seventeen
rooters accompanied the team
on their trip and all were royally entertained
at the college. On Monday
next the Due West team will play a
re+urn game here. ^
One of the most enjoyable ?vents
of the winter term was the lecture
given in the college auditorium Monday
evening by Dr. John E. White,
under the auspices of the Lanier Literary
society for the benefit of the
library of the society. Dr. White's sub
ject, "Sidney Lanier," was most interestingly
presented and the evening
was in every way a success. Just before
the lecture Lanier's "Sunset" was
charmingly sung by Miss Stranathan.
