In similar facts, with reference to the same corporate grant, New Orleans Waterworks Co. v. Rivers, 115 U. S. 674, is affirmed to the point that a legislative grant of an exclusive right to supply water to a municipality and its inhabitants through pipes and mains laid in the public streets and upon condition of the performance of the service by the grantee is a grant of a franchise vested in the state in consideration of the performance of a public service, and, after performance by the grantee, is a contract protected by the Constitution of the United States against state legislation and against provisions in state constitutions to impair it.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
