Transcript 13 in the trial of any and all State cases before said Recorder and in the said recorder's court in the said City of Houston as above provided, the style of all writs and process shall be, "The State of Texas," and all prosecutions shall be carried on in the name and by the authority of the State of Texas; and shall conclude, 'Against the peace and dignity of the State." The Recorder shall keep a complete and correct docket in a well bound book of all the city and State cases brought before hiii', which docket must show the style of the case, the offense charged and the judgment of the court with amount of the fine and costs, and such docket shall always be open for the inspection of the public. The City Council shall have the authority to determine at what time' <<•■ times said recorder's court shall be open for business and how long it shall continue in session each day, excluding Sunday and legal holidays. The recorder shall receive a salary to be fixed by the City Council. Sec. 17. The following are "peace officers" of the City of Houston: The Marshal, Deputy Marshal, patrolmen, policemen and any private person specially apptunted by the Mayor or City Council of the City of Houston to execute criminal process. Wherever a peace officer of said city meets with any resistance in discharging any duty impersed upon him by law, he may summon a sufficient number of citizens of said city to overcome the resistance. A peace officer or any other person may without warrant arrest an offender when the offense is committed in his presence or within his view if the offense is one classed as a. felony or as an offense against the public peace, or against any of the ordinances of the City of Houston, or any person found in suspicious places or under circumstances which reasonably show that such persons have been guilty of some felony or breach of the peace, or threaten or are about to commit some offense against the laws, either of the city or State. When it is shown by satisfactory proof to a peace officer, upon the representation of a credible person, that a felony has been committed and that the eiffender is about to escape, so that there is no time to procure a warrant, such person may, with out warrant, pursue and arrest the person accused.
