Stone v. Wisconsin
94 U.S. 181
As giving a construction to the state constitution and statute, this Court accepts the decision of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin that the charter of the Milwaukee and Waukesha Railroad Company, granted by the Territory, is subject to repeal or alteration inasmuch as it was not accepted, nor was the company organized, until after the admission of the state into the Union, under a constitution which continued that act in force, and provided that all laws for the creation of corporations might be altered or repealed by the legislature at any time after their passage.
