SEC. 3. An imperative necessity and emergency exists which requires the immediate passage and taking effect of this act, as the tax collector is required by law to collect said several sums of taxes, by seizure and levy from said persons if the same be not paid by the 1st day of March, 1881, and the several inhabitants may not in consequence thereof be benefited by this act as intended; therefore be it enacted, that this act take effect and be in force from and after its passage.

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That article 3971 of the Revised Civil Statutes of the State of Texas be so amended as to hereafter read as follows, viz. :

CHAPTER XXXVI.--An act to be entitled an act to amend title
11, chapter 1, article 241, of the Revised Civil Statutes of Texas, adopted February 21, 1879.
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That article 241 of the Revised Civil Statutes be so amended that hereafter it shall read as follows:
“Article 241. The following judicial districts in this State shall each, respectively, elect a district attorney, viz.: The first, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, the seventh, the eighth, the ninth, the twelfth, the seventeenth, the eighteenth, the fifteeeth, the nineteenth, the twentieth, the twenty-third, the twenty-fourth, the twenty-fifth, the thirtieth, and the counties of Galveston and Harris; provided, that the governor shall appoint a district attorney for the thirtieth and nineteenth judicial districts until the next general election.” SEC. 2.
The fact that courts of the nineteenth judicial district are now in session for the trial of persons accused of felony, and that public policy demands that the State shall have additional aid in their prosecution, justifies the suspension of the rule requiring this bill to be read on three several days, and it is suspended, and creates an emergency which requires that this act take effect from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
Approved March 11, A. D. 1881.
CHAPTER XXXVII.-An act to repeal “An act to diminish the
civil jurisdiction of the county court of Navarro county and to conform the jurisdiction of the district court of said county to such change," approved July 2, A. D. 1879, and to prescı ibe the jurisdiction of said county court.
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That an act entitled “An act to diminish the civil jurisdiction of the county court of Navarro county, and to conform the jurisdiction of the district court of said county to such change,” approved July 2, A. D. 1879, be and the same is hereby repealed.
SEC. 2. That said county court be and the same is hereby re-invested with the jurisdiction, criminal and civil, which it had and exercised prior to the passage of said act diminishing the jurisdiction of said court.

SEC. 5. The crowded condition of the dockets of said district court creates an emergency that this act take effect and be in force from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
Approved March 12, A. D. 1881.

SEC. 3.' Whereas, the game laws now in force are wholly inadequate to protect the game of this State from cruel and wanton destruction, therefore an emergency exists and an imperative public necessity demands that the constitutional rule requiring a bill to be read on three several days be suspended, and that this bill take effect and be in force from and after its passage.
