appointed as herein provided, and for the second circuit
the third circuit, the sixth circuit, and the seventh
circuit, there shall be a chief judge and three associate
judges to be styled judges of the Circuit Court, to be
elected or appointed as herein provided. And no two of
said associate judges, for any of the said circuits, except
the third, sixth and seventh circuits shall, at the
time of their election or appointment or during the term
for which they may have been elected or appointed, re-
side in the same county. If two or more persons shall be
candidates for associate judge in the same county in any
of the circuits, except the third, sixth and seventh
circuits, that one only in said county shall be declared
elected who has the highest number of votes in the cir-
cuit. In case any two candidates for associate judge in any
of the circuits, except the third, sixth and seventh
circuits, residing in the same county shall have an equal
number of votes greater than any other candidates for
associate judge in the circuit, it shall be the duty of the
Governor to order a new election for one associate judge;
but the person residing in any other county of the circuit
and who has the highest number of votes shall be declared
elected. The said judges shall hold not less than two terms
of the Circuit Court in each of the counties composing
their respective circuits, at such times as are now or may
hereafter be prescribed to which jurors shall be sum-
moned ; and in those counties where only two such terms
are held, two other and intermediate terms, 'to which
jurors shall not be summoned; they may alter or fix the
times for holding any or all terms, until otherwise pre-
scribed, and shall adopt rules to the end that all business
not requiring the interposition of the jury shall be, as far
as practicable, disposed of at such intermediate terms. One
judge in each of the above circuits, including the second,
the third, sixth and seventh circuits, shall consti-
tute a quorum for the transaction of any business, and the
said judges or any of them may hold special terms of their
courts, whenever in their discretion the business of the
several counties renders such terms necessary.
In the Third Circuit, two of said Associate Judges shall
at all times be bona fide residents of Baltimore County and
one of said Associate Judges or the Chief Judge be a bona
fide resident of Harford County, and said Judges shall
have been such residents six months prior to their appoint-
ment or election.
The additional associate judge for the second circuit
herein provided for shall be a resident of Cecil County,
