Wilkes County v. Coler, 190 U.S. 107 (1903)

Wilkes County v. Coler

No. 217

Argued April 17, 20, 1903

Decided May 18, 1903

190 U.S. 107


The North Carolina ordinance of March 8, 1888, has been declared by the Supreme Court of that state and by this Court ( 180 U. S. 180 U.S. 532) to have been the law of North Carolina when bonds were issued by Wilkes County for subscription to stock of the Northwestern North Carolina Railroad Company. All the conditions of the ordinance as to the route of the railroad and the approval of a majority of the qualified electors of the county having been met, the county had power to subscribe to the stock of the road and to issue its bonds therefor, and it cannot now contend that the bonds are invalid for want of power on its part to issue them.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
