A municipal subscription to the stock of a railroad company, or in aid of the construction of a railroad, made without authority previously conferred, may be confirmed and legalized by subsequent legislative enactment, when legislation of that character is not prohibited by the Constitution and when that which was done would have been legal had it been done under legislative sanction previously given.
