19-227. Proclamation of insurrection. When the governor is satisfied that the execution of civil or criminal process has been forcibly resisted in any county by bodies of men, or that combinations to resist the execution of process by force exist in any county, and that the power of the county has been exerted and has not been sufficient to enable the officer having the process to execute it, he may, on the application of the officer or of the prosecuting attorney, by proclamation to be published in such papers as he shall direct, declare the county to be in a state of insurrection and may order into the service of the state such number and description of volunteer or uniform companies, or other militia of the state as he shall deem necessary to serve for such term, and under the command of such officer or officers, as he shall direct.
