THE RANDALL COUNTY NEWS, FEBRUARY 19. f09.
NEW JUDICIAL DISTRICT. Randall County to Have Eight Weeks of Dis trict Court During the Year Instead of Four. During the session of legisla ture which is now grinding along at Austin a bill was introduced to make a new judicial district out of a portion of the 47th dis trict of which Randall county was a portion. The bill was passed and was signed by the governor on the 13th instant and is now a law. Kandall county will have two terms of the court each year each of which may continue in session for four weeks instead of the two which was formerly allowed the county in the old district. This will give the court more time to dispose of all the business to be transacted in this county at the present time. Judge Browning will continue as judge of the district to which Kandall county is attached, the 47th. and the Hon. D. B. Hill has has been appointed as the judge j of the new district. We give below the bill as it passed the two houses of the legislature and as it was approv ed by the governor.
