The Vexed Read Question
The fol. owing is the opinion of Co'. B
R Moore, Solicitor of the Ciiminal Court
for this county, on the vexed question as
to th ; jurisdiction of Justices of the Peace
mcates of refusal tc work the 'public
roads. It was furniuheJ us, at our re
quest by Maj Juo. W. Dunham, the
Clerk of the Court. Ool. Moore, it will
be seen, differs very materially from the
opinion of Ool. Thos. S. Kenan, Attorney
General, as published by us a week: or so
I ! I I
ago. Judge Meares, we are informed,
agrees with Solicitor Moor in his opinion
and' so charged the jury on Monday.
The following is the1 opinion referred to:
It is manifest that it was the intention
of j the Legislature to confer upon Justices
of the Peaca exclusive origiual jurisdiction
of the offence created by sectiou 0, chapter
82, Laws of 1878- 9 ; but the question is,
does the act referred to carry out this iu
Lention ? I submit that it does not, and
that Justices of the Peace have not origi
nal jurisdiction over the offence thereby
orea ed ; to-wit, failure to work on the
i public roads, j
It may be noted iu the nrst piace mat
section 27, article 4, of the Amended Con
stitution, so far as it confers jurisdiction
over criminal matters upon Justices of the
Peace, is the same as section 36, article 4,
of the old Constitution of 1808, the words
of the clause conferring this jurisdiction,
beifjg in both sections identical, with two
Section 33, article IV, of the old consti
tution, gives to Justices of the Peace ex
clusive original jurisdiction "of all crimi
nal matters arising within their couuties,
where the punishment cannot exceed a
fine of fifty dollars, or imprisonment for
one month ' Section 271, article IV, of
i-he Amended Constitution gives the same
jurisdiction ' of all crimiual matters aris
ing within their counties, where the puu-i-hrnent
cannot exceed a fine of fifty dol
lars or iimprisonruent for thirty days;'
the only difference between the corres
ponding clauses in the two constitutions
being the distinction which the Supreme
Court has diawn between the meaning of
the phrase one month aud the phrase
thirty days. Why the words thirty
days were substituted in the Ameud
jd Constitution for the words
one month in the old consti
tution, is well known to the profession;
this distinction drawn by the hupreme
Court being the original cause. j
I- will be observed that the words jof
he coLstitutiou givo the mag.strates
jurisdiction where the punishment is by
due or imprisonment; not where the
puuishmtnts by fin eand imprisonment. I
submit that wherever a penal statute
gives the court poer to inflict a punish
ment of both hue and imprisonment tha ;
hbn the jurisdiction it (taken a wa from
the Justices of Peace although it may nve
been the intention of the Legislature to
confer jurisdiction upenthem; and for this
positiou I cite the cases of the State vs
beaton, 65 N. C, page 406, and State vs
He.'Lurg it. a., 70 N C , pig 49 j
ueaton's case was lor "wiitui abaudon

forward in Battle's Revival, section
119, chapter 32, where the defend

be fined nv.t to exceed the sum of fifty
dollars or imprisoned not jto exceed one
month, or both, iu the discretion of the
Judge of the Superior Court, or Justice
of the j Peace before whom he case shall
be tried." Inthiscas, after expressing
a disposition to leave all such cates to the
jurisdiction of Justices of the Peace th
Court says, "but upon a close examina
tion of the wording of the statute we think
this canuot be done, as the act authorize
the infliction of both a tine and impris u
ment, and not merely a fine or imprison
ment, for one month as prescribed m art.
4, Sectiou 33, offthe constitution."
In Heidelberg's case the court affirms
the decision in Deatou's case, giving the
argument more luliyj.
In what pa ticu.ar does the case at
Bar differ from the caaesViteU? Thd de
feudaut in the case at Bar is indicted
for refusal to work upon a public road
under sec 6, chap. 8.2 !, laws of 1878 9.
This section provides1 that any penou
who, being liable to worfc ou the public
roads, shall fail to do so, shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor, and on convictiou shall
be fined not less than two dollars nor more
than five doiars, or imprisoned not
