J. C. Burt, amicus curiae.
JUDGES: In Bank.
We are of opinion that the Act of 1880 (Stat. 1880, p. 35, amending Code Civil Proc., § 110), fixing the terms of office of justices of the peace at two years from the first day of January next succeeding their election, is constitutional, and that these officers are to be elected this year.
Let the writ issue as prayed for.
