Art. 51.05.  [1093, 4, 5] BAIL OR COMMITMENT. When the
accused is brought before the magistrate, he shall hear proof, and
if satisfied that the accused is charged in another State with the
offense named in the complaint, he shall require of him bail with
sufficient security, in such amount as the magistrate deems
reasonable, to appear before such magistrate at a specified time.
In default of such bail, he may commit the defendant to jail to
await a requisition from the Governor of the State from which he
fled. A properly certified transcript of an indictment against the
accused is sufficient to show that he is charged with the crime
alleged. One arrested under the provisions of this title shall not
be committed or held to bail for a longer time than ninety days.
