88. Designation by presiding justice of appellate division of justice to hold term of supreme court. If it appear to the satisfaction of the presiding justice of the appellate division in any department that a special or trial term of the supreme court duly appointed therein is in danger of failing, he may designate a justice who resides in that department to hold such term in the absence of the justice assigned thereto. If in the opinion of such presiding justice it is not practicable to make a designation from his department, he shall so inform the governor who may thereupon designate for such term a justice from any department.
