The Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Tile el.eet.ow of Judge A. C. Uaskell
to the presidency of the Charlotte, Co.
luimbia and Augusta Iailroad is hail.
ed as an auspicious oien by tlc
stockholders living inl the State and
the people generally. Judge Haskell
is a gentlemuai of the highest Integrity
and Is thoroughly Identified with the
State. hlis election will do much to
popularize the road. If he be allow
ed to exercise his discretion in tle
mnaitigetuent of tei road's afihirs, we
feel sure that a great improvement
will at once be experienced. As long,
however, as the road is inl the hands
of foreign stockholders, who care for
nothing but their own interests, the
people living along the line are not
safe. The majority can make and
uniake officers at will. A great deal
of needless abuse was heaped upon
Col. J. B. Palmer, the retiring presi
dent. The road has been a mere ap
panage of other corporations, and
the president has not been able here
tofore to exercise any volition. We
take for granted that the selection of
so sterlii.g a citizen and popular gon
tleman as Judge Haskell, is an indica
tion of. a change front the past policy
of the road, that 'lias nearly plunged
it into bankruptcy, thrown it into
lawsuits, and roused the Ire of the
Leglshatture atid the wrath of the peo
pl(. It is high thne for this change.
The sentinent, has been general that
it were far better to have the road
placed itt the hands of such a receiver
as Gcneral Coinner, of the Greenville
Road, than to have it run solely in the
interests of a foreign corporation.
IHappily we have now a first-class
aitni at the head of the road without
going to the expense of freezing out
the stockholders to secure him. It Is
to he hoped that the minority stock
holders will at last begin to receive
somei returns from an investment that
has for the past eight years been ruin
ous. Tle Charlotte, Columbia and
Augnsta Railond Is one of the best
lines in the South, and with decent
management is bound to become rich.
The Supreme Court.
South Carolina is in imminent dan
ger of' sootn having te Supreme Court.
The election of Judge Iaskell to the
railroad presidency created one vacan
cy. Judge Melver will be elected
Chief Justice, and it is said will there
11po10 resign the associate justiceship,
whilie Judge Willard claims that his
term will not expire for three years
longer. A disputed chief justiceship
111d 110 associato justices will leave
the courts in a pretty miuddle. Trho
Supreme Court is to decide the point
that gentltemtani nor Justice Mclver
will sit in the case. Governor Simp

cial justices, butt he also is itnterestedl
for he aspires to the supretme benich.

As to tihe teinability of Justice Wil
lard's position inl law, opiions differ.
We~r have explressed our1 opinlion. The
Register' ditlfers, and quotes a decision
of the Supreme Court on the tenure of
of circuit judlges. In this decision thie
opinioni delivered by Judge Willard
himtself~ is as follows:
Having these prtiniciples in view, lot
us look into the Constitution to see
whether thiere is aniythiing to sutstain
a conclusion thatt the Conistitutioni has
imtposed ai itmit to thie durltalion of' the
oillee of Citrcuit Jtudge of' such a nature
tat perisonis electedi to fIlli a casual
vacanev' canntot claim the full termn
attache'd to the off1ce, but cnn hold(
only for' the utiexirited term. In tihe
first yhe, there is nto provision, int
directly, accomtplishiing such a r'esult
biy fixing tihe thine when tihe Circuit
.Judges shall take their offices. Such
a provisioni exists, as we have alreadv
noticed, in tihe case of thie Officers (10
scribed, as "State Officers"-(Article
4, Sectjont 2, anid Ai'tIcle 19, Section
10.) Such ta limitationi is liferable as
taffectlig thme Justices of the Supretne
Coutrt from (lie provisionis requi ring
that one of those Justices shall be
elected every~ two years. ifut nonte
is fountd affecting the Circuit Judges.
This omissiotn is evjdently inot acci
dental, but itntetional. In the case
of the Supr'eme Court, that body being
comose ofthree JustIces, the're was
reason for plaeing reg uhar intervals
of twvo years between the elections of
the resp~etive Judges, so that no sud(
denl cbange could be made in the or
ganization of thie Court- an impor'tanlt
safeguard againset irtregulharity In the
adiministrau~on of the law.
'Upon tis doctr'ine the Re~gister
relies. It is Important as shiowinig that
Judge Willard's viewse have changed
Whatever tile law of the case, we
tinik thlat a settse of propriety might
lead Judge Willard to .refrain from
* I~pressinig this p~oint. By a hard fight
he was elected for' an untexp)ired term,
while he was ofi'ercd the alternative
,of r'etalning his assocaute justiceship
for another full termn. lHe ought to

When a seat on the Supreme Beonch
