The defendant may, prior to the date upon which he promised to appear in court, deposit with the judge amount of bail set as provided in Section 1555 above. Thereafter, at the time the case is called for arraignment, if the defendant shall not appear, either in person or by counsel, the judge may declare the bail forfeited, and may in his discretion order that no further proceedings shall be had in such case. Upon the making of such order that no further proceedings be had, all sums deposited as bail shall be paid into the treasury of the City and County of San Francisco.
