to appoint not exceeding two (2) assistants, and is hereby

SEC. 16. The rapid development of Gregg County, due to the
location of a large oil field in said County and the litigation
incident thereto, necessitates the creation of the 124th Judicial
District Court, as herein provided for. The unprecedented
amount of litigation, the crowded condition of the docket, the
numerous civil cases being filed and the numerous felony cases
pending on the docket of the 71st Judicial District Court in and
for Gregg County, Texas, which litigation the existing Court
is unable to dispose of, and the crowded condition generally of
the Gregg County jail, by reason of persons being unable to obtain
a speedy trial, and the near approach of the end of this
Session of the Legislature, creates an emergency and an imperative
public necessity which requires that the Constitutional
Rule requiring bills to be read on three separate days be suspended,
and the same is hereby suspended, and this Act shall
take effect and be in force from and after its passage, and it
is so enacted.
Approved August 12, 1931.
Effective August 12, 1931.
