Between Tho City ana the Water"
An Opinion at to Its Validity and Elfect,
And Authority Cited, From a
IHIO.r fun Aiilnnlo I. lain.
Han- Amiimii, Texas, Noveiutn r lIMh,
1S8S. Having been requested by you to
exsmlno tho contract between tho city
of Sun Antonio and the Water-Work
Company (so called) and to givo you au
opinion as to Its allillty, and Its binding
elfect upon the city, mid also. If In my
opinion thn contract Is nut binding, then
what remedy the city or the lax-pavers
have to dispose of It, 1 submit the fol
lowing as the ri'iilt of my examination
of j our question:
'lhat pirt of the contract made on the
part of tho city contains the following
provisions ami agreements, vIe:
Third "The s-ild oily further obli
gates Itself not to grant to any other
body of men, or person, during Ihe eon
tlnitaneo of this contract, the right to

On the Mlh day or .limitary. A. 1).
laSI, the original contract wiisumi iided,
among oilier things, ns follows:
1. "From and after the first day of
January, 1S31, the said city or San An
tonio shall pay for the use of the one
hundred Urn hydrants which nre now es
tablished In accordance with the direc

purpose of opcruilng their works; such
property, however, not lo exceed In
vnluc the sum of two hundred and lllly
thousand dollars; so Hint said Wnter
Works Cunipatiy shall be dlsclmrgi d
from the ptivment ol all city taxes dur
ing the continuance of the original con
tract aforesaid by the teriLS thcriof."
Section S. "In all other respects the
contract aroresnld shall lie nnd remain
In full forco and effect as the same na
originally cniercd Into between Ihe said
In the examination of the Contract two
leading questions suggest themselves,
Is not the Con I nut against public
policy? nnd, second, Is It not unconsti
tutional; If the contract Is against public
policy. It Is void; If it Is unconstitu
tional It Is void; If It creates n monop
oly It Is unconstitutional, and it Is nlo
unconstitutional, If It exempts from tax
ation property not exempted by the
Constitution or this State from taxation.
Section 6C, Article III of the Consti
tution provides that "The Legislature
shall not, except ns otherwise provided
In Ibis Constitution, pass anv local or
special law, authorizing 'rlxempting
property from taxation."
Section 1. Article VIII.. provides that
"taxation shall be equal and uniform.
At.t. i-iioi-r.urv In this State, whether
owned by natural persons or corpora
tions, other than municipal, sham, he
taxeii In proportion to I a value, which
shall bo ascertained ns may be protldrd
Section 2, of tho same Article, among
other things provides ns follows: "Hut
the Legislature niav, by general laws,

or religious worship; pla es orburlal not

If so, the contract Is void.
Section 2ii. Article I. Illlll of Illclilsl
provides that "perpetuities and monopo

iy reierriug back to thti tinril section
of the agreement of Ihe city with thn
lyumpiny, it was expressly ngreeu ny
