U.S. Supreme Court

Bonham v. Needles, 103 U.S. 648 (1880)

Bonham v. Needles

103 U.S. 648

Syllabus

1. The rulings in Harter v. Kernochan, supra, p. 103 U. S. 662, reaffirmed.

2. Although the records of a township, which was authorized by the statutes of Illinois to make a donation to a railroad company and issue bonds in payment thereof, contain no evidence of a meeting of the township whereat the qualified voters assented to the issue of bonds in payment of a donation for which they have previously voted, the recital in the bonds that they were issued in pursuance of those statutes is conclusive upon the township in a suit brought against it by a bona fide holder to enforce the payment of them.
