Section 15-21 Same--When deposit of costs required.

    The city counselor may, when he is not satisfied that the information is made for the purpose of public justice, or that the evidence is sufficient to obtain the conviction of the accused, require the prosecuting witness to deposit with the municipal court a sufficient amount of money for the payment of all costs that may accrue, or else, give bond and security for the costs; and in such case, if the accused by acquitted, the court shall render judgment against the prosecuting witness for costs.
