nre Tried to Provide For.
The Saprsme Conri decides the
case of Cook against Meares and the
de.:is;ori is in favor of Metres. Jua
tiue Furches renders the ' opinion,
which sajs every question h.volved
in the case save one is decided in
the caaj of Ewart against Jon a and
thi: one quefatioa is that Cook was
elected U,ic" days before the act was
eigted by the President of the Sen
ute and the Speaker, of he House
There is no doubt of Cook's being
elected, and it is contended that the
'Legislature's will so clearly ex
pressed should not be defeated by a
mere technicality. Deferdant Meares
contended that when Cook-was deck
ed there was no such office ; that the
act was no act at all until ratified
and signed. The opinion refers to
the caee of Scarborough against
Robinflon; brocght 'to compel the
President and Speaker to sign, after
the Legislature had adjourned, a bill
passed by the Legislature; and says
that the forrcr court decided, that
it was not a law until so signed. The
court says it finds very respectable
authority to the contrary, but does
not pass upon thu question. It does
say, howi-yer, that tne opinion an
nounces a very grave proposition
and that if what was held in tbat
proposition be true, the presiding
officers of'the Legislature are c'othi d
with powers greater J,han ivo0e of
the President if the United btates
or any GoTernor ; but the, court says
thieScarboro case is now put out of
consideration because the act creating
the Criminal Court was signed and
is now a law, and to quote the opin
ion, "We put oar judgmeut on this
act, now the law, whicb provides
that it sha!l be in effec from and
after its ratification, which ia ia
tffect saying th.t it ehall not be in
effect before"tha5 time, and upon the
opinion of Shotle3 against Hampton,
which holds that a person cannot be
elected to an otu s - thaf. d.jes not ex
isr at the time of the election. It
is better that the "intention" of the
Legislature should be defeated for a
time than that we should violate the
law. We Suet no. error in thsjidg
uient appeal. d from and the eame 8
affirmed." C'ark and Ayery file

doss not concur entire y in the
court's reasons and saya, referring to
the Scarboro case, that the court
did not transcend tie proper limit
in discussing and passing upon the
questions involved in it.
