SECTION OF SEARCH
AND SEIZURE LAW IS
JIFTY YEARS OLD
I AUSTIN, Aug. 28—While the so-
, called search and seizure law of the
| Thirty-Ninth legislature is creating
j considerable interest and diversity
j of opinion among peace officers and
j others thruout the state, it was disclos
ed Wednesday afternoon that section
1 of the act has not only been a part
of the Texas constitution, but has
been in the Texas Code of Criminal
Procedure for the last fifty years.
This section was first incorporated
in the criminal code in 1879 and is
known as article 5, and was again
placed in the code in 1895 .then in
1911 .and lastly in the code of 1925.
This is the section or article which
reads: “The people shall be secure
in their persons, houses, papers and
possessions from all unreasonable seiz
ures or searches, and no warrant to
search any place, or to seize any per-
son or thing, shall issue without de-
scribing them as near as may be, nor
without probable cause, supported by
oath or affirmation.” This is the ex-
act verbiage of section 1 of the new
law ,and also of article 5, incorporat-j
ed in the code of 1879. j
Section 2 of the act is new, and is
the one which provides that no ranger
or peace officer shall search the ac-
tual residence or place of business
without first obtaining a search war-
rant Section 3 fixes the penalty, and
the last section is the emergency
