P. Ellis, Esq., 29. The county court of Greene county, without a vote of the people, by order of June 20, 1870, subscribed $400,000 to the capital stock of Kansas City & Memphis Railroad Company. Order modified October 4, 1870, 80 as to make subscription to Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad Company, to aid in building the K. 0. &. M.R.R. April, 1871, order made rescinding former orders, and in July, 1871. order rescinding the rescinding order of April, 1871, and bonds issued, payable to H. & St. Joe R. R. Co. as bearers: Held, that as there was no acceptance by the latter company of the subscription, there was neither a contract nor a consideration for one, and that it was incompetent for the K.C. & M. R. R. Co. to accept the subscription. Ibid. The consolidation of the Kansas City & Cameron Rail
road Cs., formerly Kansas City, Galveston & Lake Superior R.R. Co., under act of March 11, 1867, "upon such terms as may be deemed just and proper." with H. & St. Joe R. R. Co. did not operate to transfer to the latter company the franchises and unexecuted rights of former companies, so as to authorize a subscription to be made to H. & St. Joe R. R, Co. without a vote of the people, and such subscription is void. Ibid. The K. O. & M. R. R. Co., though nominally a branch of the H. & St. Joe R. R. Co., is, in fact, an independent company, attempted to be organized under act of March. 21. 1868, (Sess. Acts 1868. pp. 90 and 91); and nejther un. der that act, nor under any legislative authority exist. ing when it was organized, could any subscription be made, by any county, to its stock or for its benefit, without a two-thirds vote of the qualified voters of
such county. Ibid. Where there is a total want of power in a municipal or.
ganization to make subscription to capital stock of a railroad company, bonds issued in aid of the same are void, even in the hands of an innocent purchaser.
Ibid. Township bonds; indemnifying bond; breach, 75. Where a statute authorizes a county to issue its negoti.
able bonds, and makes it the duty of the county court “to levy a special tax of sufficient amount to pay the interest and principal of said bonds, as the same be. come due," the power of taxation, thus given, enters into and becomes a part of the obligation of the con. tract between the county and every holder of such bonds; and under the Constitution of the United States this obligation of the contract can not be im. paired or lessened in any degree by the constitution or laws of th state afterwards enacted, United States v
Jefferson Co., 130. In such case it is the duty of the county court to levy, and cause to be collected, a tax sufficient in amount to pay the interest and principal of such bonds as the saine matures, and if it does not perform its duty, it may be compelled to do so by mandamus. Ibid. The bonds issued by the county court of Cape Girardeau
county on behalf of Cape Girardeau township, under act of March 23, 1868, to aid in building the C. G. & St.
L. R. R. are void. Ranney v, Bader, 188. Taxes collected for payment of bonds illegally issued
