sufficient number of judges duly qualified as to residence
shall not be elected at any election, then it shall be the
duty of the Governor to order a new election for such
unfilled office or offices. From and after December 1,1954,
there shall be not less than three judges resident in Balti-
more County. Notwithstanding any other provision of
this Article, the vacancy in Baltimore County created by
the adoption of this amendment shall not be filled by
appointment as provided in Section 5 of this Article; but
at the first biennial general election for representatives
in Congress after the adoption of this amendment, a judge
shall be elected by the qualified voters of Baltimore
County to fill such vacancy. Any other vacancy in the
office of judge of the Circuit Court for Baltimore County
shall be filled as provided in Sections 8 and 5 of this
Article. The said judges shall hold such terms of the
Circuit Court in each of the counties composing their
respective circuits, at such times, as are now prescribed
or may hereafter be prescribed by rules or regulations by
the Court of Appeals or otherwise by law. One judge in
each of said seven circuits shall constitute a quorum for
the transaction of any business; and the said judges, or
any of them may hold special terms of their Courts, when
in their discretion, the business of the several counties
renders such terms necessary.
All provisions of the Constitution of Maryland and all
Acts of the General Assembly relating to the Court of
appeals or any other courts, and all rules heretofore
adopted by the Court of Appeals, not inconsistent with
the provisions of the sections amended or added by this
amendment, shall remain in full force and effect unless
and until amended or repealed by proper authority. All
salaries now prescribed by law for associate judges of the
Circuit Courts shall continue to apply to all judges (in-
cluding chief judges) of the Circuit Courts who are not
judges of the Court of Appeals. No member of the Gen-
eral Assembly at which this amendment was proposed, if
otherwise qualified, shall be ineligible for appointment or
election as judge of the Court of Appeals or any other
court by reason of his membership in such General Assem-
bly. [All appeals and other matters pending in the Court
of Appeals on January 1, 1945, shall be proceeded with
and determined by the Court as hereby constituted.] In
the event and to the extent of any inconsistency between
the provisions of any section amended or added by this
amendment and any of the other provisions of this Con-
stitution or the provisions of any existing law, the pro-
visions of the sections amended or added shall prevail, and
