of the regi teraud collector,
-?er r., ?faj?rity ls repreiented to have
'it tlLby th? "jeatio*. on the part of
???ttiuistioaers of election, of legal votes
which, had they been received, would have
siren a majority to each of the present incum
bents.
The fodrth section of the charter of 1848
provides that the regijter, collector, and sur
veyor. shall be severally elected on the f.urth
Monday of June, biennially; that they ahull
respectively ?? hold their offices until their re
spective successors are duly elected and quail
fled bo lea? sooner removed from office " The
charter then authorises the corporation to de
fine the duties of those officers; to prescribe
the amount of bond and security to be given
'#a?u *? U,r, for th# ProP?r di?
oharge of their dat es The charter next de
foribes ttn cx?e? ia whioh tboM officers, or any
or ihem, may be removed, and declares that
in <*ny cf such cases it shall" be lawful for
'he Board of Aldermen and Board of Common
-ouncil, by joint resolution, to remove such
officers and to order an election to fill the va
cancy."
An ordinance of the corporation of the 26"h
of May, 1848, (Sheahan's Compilation, pp.
*5?28.) enacts that the person* elect*d to the
offices of register, collector, and surveyor, re
spectively, on the first Monday of June, shall
enter upon the duties of their respective offices
on the first day of July next after their elec
tion.
The present register and oollector were
elected at the regular election held on the
first Monday of June, 1853. The charter re
quires them to held their offices until super
seded by successors duly elected and qualified,
unless sooner removed from offise. If the suc
cessors claiming to supersede them did not re
ceive the majority of the legal votes which were
offered, those successors are not duly elected,
and the incumbents have the right, nnder the
charter, to hold their offices ; and unless they
see fit to re.-igu their offices, this right can be
destroyed only by removal in the manner and
for some one cf the causes prescribed in the
charter.
We therefore answer jcur first inquiry by
saying that, assuming the facts Mated, wo are
of o inion that the present register and col
lector have the right and the duty, under the
term of the charte*, to hold their offices until
a new election, unless sooner removed in ac
cordance with the charter: but this right and
duty cannot require, under the oircumstances,
any resistance to force.
<>ur advice, therefore, in answer to your
second inquiry is. that the register and collec
tor cor.titue to hold their respective offices
until the alternative of force opposed to force
shall be presented, in whioh oase that they
retire under proper protest; and that there
after the whole marttcr of law and facts be
submitted to the appropriate legal tribunal.
We are. gentlemen, very respectfully,
