In an action at law in a circuit court of the United States against a township to recover on bonds issued by the township, the plaintiff is not entitled to recover on bonds transferred to him by citizens of the state in which the town is situated for the mere purpose of being sued in a court of the United States.

The issue of township bonds by commissioners under the Act of the Legislature of New Jersey of April 9, 1868, "to authorize certain towns in the counties of Somerset, Morris, Essex and Union to issue bonds and take stock in the Passaic Valley and Peapack Railroad Company" was conclusive as to the amount that could be put out under the statute and estopped the township from setting up against a bona fide holder that the issue was in excess of the amount authorized. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
