The Congress of the State of Coahuila and Texas, taking into view
the popular arrangement the constitution contemplated giving to the
appointment of the magistrates of the tribunal of justice, and that the
extension of the powers of the executive conferred in the eighth of his
attributes might comprise the substitutes of long continuance, should
they be appointed by him, has thought proper to decree as follows:
ART. 1. The substitutes of ministers of the tribunal of justice, and
attorney general, whose continuance in office does not exceed one year,
shall be appointed by the executive of hinmself, according to article 69 of
the law regulating the administration of justice.

-appointed by the executive, observing the provision of the foregoing article.
ART. 3. Substitutes whose term exceeds one year shall be appointed
by congress on nomination of three by the executive, who, in case of
recess, shall appoint the substitutes comprised in the preceding articles
until congress having convened, hears the nomination and determines
the appointment. unless in case of sickness on the part of those officers
comprised in this decree, whose term is one year, and whom the executive
supposes will recover in one or two months, in which case he shall
appoint a substitute to the appointment made by himself, by virtue of
ART. 4. The substitutes comprised in this decree shall be duly sworn
before congress, and during the recess thereof, before the executive.
ART. 5. Since all provisional substitution that cannot be prolonged
in case of death, except inasmuch as circumstances require, shall be comprised
in the foregoing articles, the decree No. 72 is hereby repealed.
For its fulfilment, the Governor of the State shall cause it to be
printed, published, and circulated.
