U.S. Supreme Court

Weightman v. Clark, 103 U.S. 256 (1880)

Weightman v. Clark

103 U.S. 256

Syllabus

1. This Court concurs in opinion with the Supreme Court of Illinois that sec. 6 of art. 9 of the constitution of that state of 1848 (infra, p. 103 U. S. 257) imposes a limitation on the power of the legislature to authorize taxation by the municipal corporations or the political subdivisions of the state.

2. A congressional township is by the laws of Illinois merely a corporation for school purposes. It cannot, therefore, subscribe for stock in a railroad company and issue its bonds in payment nor levy a tax upon persons and property within its jurisdiction to aid in building railroads.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
