bave only two deputies and that the con'
sent oi tne county judge must oe naa
aa to whether it ia neceeaary te appoint
any oeputtea at au. ... - ' ;
The county attorney at Brenham asked
the following question: "Can the son of
a county commissioner be legally ap-
pointed a public weigher by tbe commis-
sioners court." The attorney general
held that it would be a violation of the
nepotism law for the commissioners court
to make such an appointment. .
Tbe State superintendent of public in-
struction waa advised that the commis-
sioners court hss no authority under
the law to appoint any one to the office
of county auperintendeat to fill a vacancy
or otherwise therefore where a vacancy
baa occurred ia the office and the com-
missioners court baa attempted to fill the
vacancy by appointment such appoint-
ment ia absolutely void and the person so
appointed has no color of title to the of-
fice to which the commissioners court
attempted to appoint him.
The county omciala of a certain county
stated that the county Judge refused to
put a motion witn a aecouu and sum-
marily adjourned the commissioners court
without the consent of a majority of .he
commissioners. In reply tne attorney
general ruled that the King of England
baa the right to prorogue parliament but
that the county Judge in the State of
Texaa has not been granted any such au-
thority over the commissioners court of
which he is a member.
