IJrown vvas tried before a jury in
Pender county and convicted, but the
case was taken to the Supreme Court
and the verdict of the lower court
was reversed. Jud.oe Faircioth in
course of the opinion said :
''Assuming every, fact alleged to
be true, we are unable to discover
any criminal offence known to the
law. We are" referred to no authori
ty for the position of the State. We
were referred to Code Section 1812,
which only prescribes what is a valid
marriage; also to Code Section 11 12
which imposes a penalty and declares
it to be a misdemeanor for any officer
to fail to return process, tc, or for
auy person, or for any person, who is
not authorized by law, to presume to
act as any such officer.
"So the case is that of a private cit
izen,unofficial, celebrating a marriage
between a man and woman with
their consent and they are not com
plaining, and are presumably satisfied
and enjoying their new relation. We
are not aware of any statute or nric
ciple of the common law declaring
the action of the defendant a criminal
offence. ' We are not considering the
validity or invalidity or tifect of the
action of the several patties. Affirm
ed." The court did not pass on the val
idity of the marriage but asserted that
Brown had done nothing punishable
by the laws cf the State. Until the
Legislature passes a law covering
such cases the joker may have his
fun performing marriages- It would
appear that such a law is necessary
as such performances tend to lessen
the sacred nesti of the marriage tie.
The Legislature which soon comes
together in Raiaigh, among its many
law makings, might gLe its attention
to this fact.
