Syllabus

The Act of the Legislature of Nebraska approved Feb. 2, 1875, entitled

"An Act authorizing School District Number 56, of Richardson County, to issue bonds for the purpose of erecting a school building, procuring a site therefor, and for setting apart a fund to pay the same,"

is void, it being in conflict with sec. 1, art. 8, of the constitution of that state of 1866-67, which declares that "the legislature shall pass no special act conferring corporate powers."
