The question whether the city council
(.in by ordinances or icsolulion without
any ai'lioii on Ihe jiait ol the owners of
the laud fronting and abutting upon new
Levee street, grant Ihe right of way and
prlvelcge of laying down and operating
a railroad track through and along said
new l.evce street, ha been submitted to
me h- youie of the city council for de
termination. Want of time absolutely I'otbld any
thing like nu elaborate eou-ldcratiou of
'file view, however, which I taku of
the matter renders till uiiucfiary.
It may be premised hi the Ilist place that
the city council can e.ercle no power
or liiucllons except such a are e.iiresj
conlerrcd upon It hy the legislature or
,ueli Implied power as are necessary to
the eercl-e of Hio-o which are expressly
coulericd. And it may further lie oh-
.-itwI that municipal corporations are
at all limes absolutely siili-cr lent to the
legidalive will, except so far a untrained
by coiistllutinnal lliullallou-i.
These general principles, about which
there can be no controversy, being
conceded, we very naturally, la Hie llrst
place turn our eyes lo the statutes of the
State for a satisfactory solution of the
The ninetieth paragraph of seellnu 01,
chapter 'J I, of the Itevl-cd Statute, reads
asiollows: The cily council or board of
tiu-lees shall have no power to grant
I be use of or light lo lay down any rail
road (racks In anv street ol'llieclly lo
uuyMcatn or horse railroad company, ex
cept upon a petition nt Ihe owners ot Ihe
laud lepre.-eutiiig moie than one half of
Ihe 1-onlago ol the Hlicct, or o much
thereof as is Foi.lit to be u-cil for tall
road puipo-c.s." Tills Is the only statu
tory pi oMon hearing directly upon the
uiaiiiier ol cscrclsiiiL' the tight to make
such a grant that I am awaie of, and hi
my pidn incut II Is conclusive of the que.
Hon. I take It as well sell led law,
without citing authorities to
supiiou the proposition, that
whenever a st'itniory nuht or nuwer
Is ciin lot i cil, and I lie mode of ecrellug
Mich right or iiowitI nreciilicd by the
statute, it cannot he cM'rclt,d lu any
other manner. I run coutldcut that no
well Informed lawjer will ills-cut from
llils nrono-iilou. and that no resoeclalile
authority can befoimd In conilicl. with It.
raw ii!r in s L'cncr.u luinc in e n connce-
Hon with the ccllnu of the staliile above
cited, il seems to follow as a legal and
lii'Meal fcmioncc, tuai iiclnre the council
could make any such grant the owners of
Ihe in lid .ifl ii c-cnti nir mnrothan one-half
ol Ihe froniage of Ihe street, would huye
lo nrc-ent to the city council a nellllnu.
iiklng that such grain, be made, lu my
hu ''incut the iicllllou lu all such cares Is
a lurl-dicilonal condition, ab-oliitely nee
esary In put the founcll lu motion, and
Willi. nit which the action of the council
would be nIuiiiIv null and void. Art well
might Hie cmml) coiiit attempt to lay
out a new road, or proceed to order the
sale ol a man's eslale w ithout Ihe peti
tion icqiilrcd bv Hit) statute being lli'.-t

Hie act of thecoillt Would be cociwi na
,ic(iiv. ami, theiclore, hindlng upon no
one, Au ntlcmiit nu the part of Iho coun
cil lo make such a grant could hut result
in complication highly detrlmealiil to Hie
bed Interest of the city, I have been
told, however, thai It has been suggested
(hat the abo e pr n'Nnii ot ihc statute
noes not apply to Ihe street lu quest Ion,
for the reason that the laud abutting
Upon the street has not been Dialled and

Aloii hi vain to lin.l Mich a quallllcallon.
The term lots, or lot, uller (he most care
ful reading, raiinnt be found ; hut the
wood land we llml. mnl ten omit hil.o li
hi lis ordinary acceptation, unless (here
is some imperative reason lor atlachlng
to It a dlll'erent meaning. The statute N
clear, plain and explicit, leaving no room
for construction. We niii-t nuine that
Ihe legislator knew what they were do
ing, and the force and value of the term
used by them lu adopting thl provision
of the statute, and to say that they meant
lots Instead ot laud hi Its ordinary slgnl
licatlon, would he Imputing to them a
very hlghdegreeof Ignorance ofthc value
of word. To say that tlieprovIlon was
not intended to apply to such portions of
a cily as were not regularly platted,
would he to incorporate Into It a provi
sion not found there, which Is not war
ranted byanyol the rule ol construction
known lo the; law.
lu my Judgment there I no room for
construction, ami tr Incorporate such a
provision into the act would be doing
inatiKe.t violence lo Ihe legl-latlve will.
