Section 2. The Trustees of the High School of Charleston shall consist of the Mayor of Charleston for the time being, ex officio, two Aldermen of the said city to bo elected by the City Council as soon after the general municipal election as may be practicable, to hold office for the term of the City Council from which they may be elected, and if the said Aldermen, or either of them, shall from any cause during such term cease to be Aldermen, his or their place on said Board shall become vacant, and the City Council shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, fill such vacancy with some other Alderman, or Aldermen, for the unexpired term.
