Warner toddy sent a challenge to Senator Hanua, inviting him o a joint d-bi e t -uc-h time and piae as the tter may chooau 3 the;maxdamus decision. Full Text of Judge Buckler's Decision Refusing the Prayer. The courts of this state have so often and so long recognized te power of city councils to enact criminal ordi nances covering offenses denounced by the criminal code of the state that their validity can no longer be questioned. Such ordinances have, from the time the court of criminal appeals was creat ed, and perhaps before tbat time, been, by tbat court, held to be valid. If val id then a breach of them might well be considered not only a breach of the criminal laws of the state, but also a breach and violation of the criminal ordinances of the city. It is true that . prosecutions, even for the violation of a city ordinance, must be carried on in the name and by the authority of the state of Texas. While this is so I do not believe that such cases can be strictly considered as etate cases I think it was the intention of the legislature in creating the city of El Paso, and other cities within the state with like powers, to give to it full and complete jurisdiction of offenses over which justices of the peace have jur isdiction and I think the principal of ficers provided for in the charter of the city are the proper officers to see thas the criminal ordinances are enforced. I cannot well see how a county officer is officially interested in the enforcement of a city ordinance. I understand tbat the stata has some interest in the enforcement of tbe criminal ordinances of the city, but I think the legisla ture has properly entrusted that inter est to the city officials. I be lieve tbat the city attorney and not the county attorney is the proper officer to prosecute far violations of the city ordinances. But aid-i from all this, it is not plain to me that it is the duty of the recorder to allow the county attorney to prosecute for violations of . criminal ordinances before his court. It seams to me that he has the right to construe the law, and to determine for himself what it " means and who is the proper prosecut ing officer in his court. This would in volve the exercise of judgment. It would be a judicial action. In such cases mandamus will not lie. Before mandamus will lie the thing to ba dono must leave no discretion on the part of the officer whether he shall or shall not do it. At all events the question is one involving too much doubt and un certainty to warrant th's court in in terfering by the summary remedy of mandamus and the writ will, therefore, be refused. A Jewish Synagogue. The Jewish people in El Paso and Juarez have long wished for organiz d religious services as are enjoyed else where, and a move has at last beea mane to secure such.
