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,
A Jewish Synagogue.
