CHAPTER 7.

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That article 75, of the Revised Civil Statutes of the State of Texas, as amended by an act passed at the regular session of the 18th Legislature, approved April 14th, A. D. 1883, be and the same is hereby amended so that it shall hereafter read as follows to wit:

Article 75. The board of managers of the Lunatic Asylum shall elect. a medical superintendent of their respective Asylums, who shall hold their offices for two years. He shall be a married man, a skillful physician, and also experienced in the treatment of insanity. He shall reside at the Asylum with his family, and shall devote his whole time exclusively to the duties of his office.

Section 2. Whereas, the time for electing a Superintendent for the asylum at Austin has arrived, and the board of managers are unable to find a man in the State of Texas who is eligible under existing law, and at the same time otherwise acceptable; and whereas, it is believed that competent men can be found in the State of Texas, and the insane properly cared for, without importing a Superintendent from another State, therefore an imperative public necessity exists justifying the suspension of the constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several days, and it is enacted that the rule be suspended, and that this bill take effect from and after its passage.
