U.S. Supreme Court

Mahomet v. Quackenbush, 117 U.S. 508 (1886)

Mahomet v. Quackenbush

Submitted March 6, 1886

Decided April 5, 1886

117 U.S. 508

Syllabus

The requirement of the Constitution of Illinois that "no private or local law which may be passed by the General Assembly shall embrace more than one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title," is satisfied if the law has but one general object, and that object is expressed in the title and the body of the act is germane to the title.

A statute of Illinois which was entitled "An Act to amend the articles of association of the Danville &c. Railroad Company, and to extend the powers of and confer a charter upon the same," and which, in the body of the act, authorized incorporated townships along the route to subscribe to its capital stock on an assenting vote of a majority of the legal voters, and further legalized assents of voters of certain townships given at meetings held previous to the passage of the act, complied with the requirement of the constitution of that state that "No private or local law which may be passed by the General Assembly shall embrace more than one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title." chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
