City attorney Joseph L. Haas last night
received from Ottawa the full text of the
supreme court's ruling in the abattoir ins
junction case, and through the courtesy
- of that gentleman the Arous is enabled
to publish the decision in full:
Opinion by Craig. C. J.)
This was a bill in equity brought by
Augustus Iluesing, a resident and tax
payer ot the city of Hock Island, to en
join the municipal authorities of the city
of Rock Island from maintaining an ab
attoir or public slaughter house and ap
propriating the moneys of the city for
that purpose. On the hearing in the cir
cuit court a decree was rendered in favor
of the complainant in the bill, hut on ap
peal to the appellate court the decree was
reversed with directions to the circuit
court to dismiss the bill . To reverse the
judgment of the appellate court the com
plainant appealed to this court. The
city of Rock Island contains a population
of about twelve thousand people and is
organized under the general incorporation
law of the state. The city council pro
cured by gift two acres of land in the city
and erected thereon a building where
animals might be slaughtered for con
sumption in the city.. On the ?th day of
December, 1885, an ordinance was
passed; the first section provides that the
premises containing the two acres is des
ignated and established as the city abat
toir. Sec. 3, 3. 4. 5. 6. 7, 8, 9 and 10 of
the ordinance is as follows:
Sec 2. Said ahbattoir is established and J
hall be maintained for the sole use and
purpose of no regulating the business of

shall have the care, custody, charge and
management of the city abattoir, and it
hall be his duty to see that the same is
conducted in a clean and orderly manner,
and that all the provisions, rules and reg
ulations adopted by the city council for
the government anil use thereof are en
forced, and that the rights and privileges
of all persons entitled to use the sime are
allowed and given without discrimination
or distinction: and in the conduct and
management of said abattoir the commis
sioner of health is hereby authorized and
empowered to employ a deputy or depu
ties; the number anil compensation of
such deputies to be fixed and determined
by the city council.
Sec. 4. Every person licensed under
the ordinances of this city to sell fresh
meats shall be entitled to use said abat
toir upon compliance with the provisions.
rules and regulations governing the use
Sec. 5. If any person licensed under

meats shall, in the use of said abattoir.

further use thereof, and shall forthwith
report such suspension and the cause
thereof to the city council for its action
Sec. 6. Said abattoir shall be open for
use for the inspection and slaughter of
animals each day from 4 o'clock a. m. to

from May 1 to Nov. 1, and from 6 o'clock
a. m., to 9 o'clock a. m., and from 11
o clock a. m. to 6 o clock p. m. .during
me penoa irom inov. l to May l.
Sec 7. Every person licensed under the
ordinances of this city to sell fresh meats
or cattle, hogs, sheep, calves or lambs,
hall, before offering such meats for sale,
have the same inspected and approved
by the commissioner of health or his dep
uty at the city abattoir or at any licensed
packing house or other place in this city
licensed for the slaughter of animals.
And it shall be the duty of said commis
sioner ot health, in person or by deputy.

to as fully as possible meet the conven
ience ot persons asking such inspection
Sec. 9. All cattle, hogs, sheep and
caives. tne Hush ot which shall be de
aired to be sold by any person licensed to
ell fresh meats within the limits of this
city shall be first inspected by the com
missioner of health or his deputy at the
city abattoir or at any licensed packing
house or other place in this city licensed
for the slaughter of animals before
laughter thereof, and before such flesh
hall be sold or offered for sale by any
Sec. 10. It shall be unlawful for any
person licensed to sell rresh meats to sell
or offer for sale within the limits of said
city any fresh meats (except venison
poultry, fish or wild game) unless the
same has been first inspected and ap
proved by the commissioner of health or
bis deputy as herein provided.
Several questions of a technical char
acter have been raised and discussed in
the argument, but in the view we take of
the record, there is but one question of
any importance presented, and that is
whether the city council of Rock Island.
under its charter, bad the power to pass
the ordinance establishing the city abat
toir and appropriate the revenues of the
city lor its erection and maintenance
and this the only question which it will
be necessary to consider.
Under chapter 24. article 5 of our re
vised statutes of 1874. ninety-six separate
ana distinct powers have been conferred
on the city council in cities, and upon
the president and board of trustees in
villages. The powers relate to the vari
ous wants and necessities which the leg
islature no clou ht supposed should be
conferred upon such corporations to ena
ble them to preserve order, prevent vio
lationa of law, make due and proper
regulations to secure the health of the
inhabitants and such other things as per
tain 10 tne property and welfare of such
Incorporated bodies. It will be observed
however.that of the powers enumerated,
none in terms authorize the construction
or maintenance of an abattoir or public
laughter housj.by the legislative depart
ment or the incorporation; and we find
no such express power conferred bv anv
provision of the statute. The city of
hock island derives its powers, what
ever they may be, from the act of the
legislature providing for the incorpora-
uou oi ciues ana villages, under which
It 13 organized. In Cook County ys Me
dea, 93 111.. 236, fallowing the rule laid
down by Dillon in his work on municipal
incorporations,!! was held that a munici
pal corporation can exercise the following
powers: First, those granted in express
words. Second, those necessarily or fairly
implied in or incident to the powers ex
pressly granted. Third, those essential
to the declared objects and purposes of
the corporation, not simply convenient
but indinpensible. There being no pro
vision of the general incorporation law
expressly conferring on the city the
power to build or maintain an abattoir if
the power exists it most be implied in or
incident to some of tbe powers expressly
granted by the statute; and it may be
conceded that if the implied power exists,
it springs from some one of the specific
health powers granted by the act of in
corporation. Those pdwers are as fol
lows: Paragraph 12. To provide for the
cleansing of the streets, alleys, etc.
15. To regulate and prevent the de
positing of ashes, offal, dirt, garbage or
any offensive matter in any street, alley,
40. To provide for the cleansing and
purification of water, water courses, etc.
40. To establish markets and markat
houses, and to provide for the regulation
and use thereof.
50. To regulate the sale of meats,
poultry, fish, butter, cheese, lard, vegeta
bles and all other provisions, and to pro
vide for place and manner of- selling the
53. To provide and regulate the in
spection of meats, poultry, fish, butter,
lard, cheese, vegetables, cotton, tobacco,
flour, meal, and other provisions .
57. To regu ate the construction, re
pair and use of vaults, cisterns, areas,
hydrants, pumps, sewers and gutters.
75. To declare what shall be a nui
sance, and to abate tbe same; and to Im
pose fines npon parties who may create,
continue or suffer, nuisances to exist.
76. To appoint a board of health, and
prescribe its powers and duties.
77. To erect and establish hospitals
and medical dispensaries and control and
regulate the same.
78. To do all acts, make all regula
tions which may be necessary or expedi
ent for the promotion of health or tbe
suppression of disease.
79. To establish and regulate cemete
ries, within or without the corporation,
and acquire lands therefor, by purchase
or otherwise, and cause cemeteries to be
removed, and prohibit their establishment
within one mile of the corporation.
81. To direct the location and regu
late the management and construction of
packing houses, renderies, tallow chan
dleries, bone factories.soap factories and
tanneries within the limits of the city or
village, and within the distance of one
mile without tbe city or village limits.
83. To direct tbe location and regu
late the use and construction of brewe
ries, distilleries, livery stables, blacksmith
shops and foundries within tbe limits of
the city or village. Also (A. 91) to tax
and license them.
83. To prohibit any offensive or un
wholesome business or establishment
within, or within one mile of the limits
of the corporation.
84. To compel the owner of any gro
cery cellar, soap or tallow chandlery, tan
nery, pig sty.pnvy or other
unwholesome . . . house or place to
regulate the location tnereoi.
rrom an examination of these different
provisions of tbe statute can it with
reason be said that the power to erect or
maintain an abattoir csn be implied in
or incident to any one of them? We
have not been able after a careful con
sideration of the subject to arrive
at a conclusion of that character. Sures
ly there is nothing in the ' language of
either of the powers granted that would
lead to the conclusion thai the erection of
a public slaughter bouse by the city was
within tbe contemplation of the legisla
ture in the enactment of these provisions.
But it i claimed that the city has ibe
ngnt to erect and maintain tbe abattoir
under paragraph 53 of article 5 of the in
corporation act which declares that the
city shall have tbe power to provide for
ana regulate tbe inspection of meats,
poultry, fish, butter, lard, cheese, cotton.
tobacco, flour, meal, and other provis
ions. Under this clause the city of Rock
Island had the undoubted power to make
reasonable provision for the inspection
of meats which may be offered for sale in
tbe city; but an inspection of tbe ordi
nance will demonstrate that it is not one
of that character. When the different
provisions of the ordinance are consid
ered, it is apparent that its true object
and scope is to provide a place where all
animals shall be slaughtered within the
city, under the management, direction
and control of the city; in other words
tbe ordinance provides for an abattoir
and maintenance of a public slaughter
House within tbe city by an officer of the
city; section 6 of the ordinance provides
mat the abattoir shall be open for use for
the inspection and slaughter of animals
each day during the year during specified
hours. Section 9 requires all cattle, hogs,
sheep and calves, the flesh of which shall
be desired to be sold by any person
licensed to sell fresh meats within the
city shall be inspected by the commis
sioner of health at the city abattoir or at
any licensed packing house in the city
before such ammals are slaughtered.
Tbe different provisions of the ordi
nance as well as the answer of the city
show beyond question that the purpose
or tbe city was not to provide a place for
the inspection of meals. It would be
placing too narrow a construction on the
ordinance in question and one too, not
authorized by its terms, to bold that it
was designed to make provision for an in
spection of meats. But it is said the city
has tbe power under paragraph 78 which
authorizes it "to do ell acts, make all
regulations, which may be necessary or
expedient for tbe promotion of health or
the suppression of disease," as a sanitary
measure, it win, nowever, be observed
that the incorporation act contains special
enumerated provisions authorizing the
city council to do certain specified acts
for tbe preservation of the health of tbe
city and the suppression of disease, as
respects any offensive or unwholsome
business or establishment which mav be
conducted or maintained in the city. As
nas been seen under paragraph 81, the
city council is authorized to direct the lo
cation and regulate the management and
construction of packing houses, reuderies,
bone factories, soap factories and tan
neries within tbe limits of the city and
witntn the distance of one mile without
the city limits. Under paragraph 82
power is conierred to direct the location
and regulate the use and construction of
breweries, distilleries, livery stables.
within the limits of tbe city. Also to
tax and license them. And under para -graph
83 power is conferred to prohibit
any offensive or unwholesome business or
establishment within, or within one mile
of the limits of the corporation: and
under 84 the city council may compel the
owners of any unwholesome house or
place to cleanse, abate or remove tbe
same, and to regulate the location there
of. There are sundry measuiea for tbe
promotion of health and tbe suppression
of disease enacted for that purpose and
They provide and determine what may
be done by the city council. If a slaugh
ter house within a city is an unwhole
some business or establishment and ' it
needs no argument to establish the fact
that it is, it may by proper ordinance be
regulated, it may be prohibited. Under
such circumstances where there are both
special provisions and a general provision
relating to tbe same subject as is tbe case
here tbe question arises whether the gen
eral provision shall enlarge the powers
conferred by tbe special provisions of the
statute, or shall the powers specially con
ierrea alone be exercised, in the State
vs. Furgeson 83 N. EL 427. where a ques
tion of this character was under consid
eration, it is said, "tbe express grant of
tne power oi legislation upon a particu
lar subject limited by the terms of ' tbe
grant in respect to its extent or objects
and purposes or in reference to the mode
in which it is to be exercised may be held
unless the contrary manifestly appears to
be the intention of the legislature upon a
view ef the entire act. to exclude all
authority to legislate upon that subject
beyond the prescribed limits. It must be
understood that the intention in the in
sertion of tbe general clanse was to re-
move the implication which would other-
wis 3 arise, to restrain tbe city from enact
ing bylaws upon other subjects, and thus
to m power them by virtue of the special
provisions conferring express power in
the specified cases, to legislate upon those
subjects under the limitations prescribed,
anc by virtue of the general clause, upon
all other matters coming within the scope
of their municipal authority."
Dillon on the municipal corporations
vol. 1, Sec. 250 second edition, lays
dovn tbe rulo as follows: When there
are both special and general provisions
the power to pasa by-laws under the
special or express grant can only exer
cise d in the cases and to tbe extent as
resiect8 those matters allowed by the
charter or incorporating act; and the
power to pass by-laws under the general
clause does not enlarge or annul the
pover conferred by the special provis
ion) in relation to their various subject
mat ters but gives authority to pass by
laws reasonable in their character, upon
all other matters within the scope of
the r municipal authority. See also city
of Cairo ys Brois 101, 111., 475. Under
the to authorities which we regard as de
daring tbe correct rule on the subject,
we do not think that section 73 relied
npc n enlarged the powers conferred by
tbe special provisions.
We bave referred in the argument to
the "slaughter-house cases" so-called.
16 Wallace 36 as an authority sustaining
the ordinance in question. From an ex
amination of the case cited it appears
tha-. in 1869 the legislature of the state
of liOuisiana passed an act to protect the
health of the city of New Orleans to lo
cate the stock landings and slaughter
nouses and to incorporate the "Crescent
City Live Stock Larding & Slaughter
House Company;" under the act all ani
mals intended to be slaughtered were re
quired to be inspected and slaughtered
at tie company's slaughter house, and all
othor slaughter houses within the city
were required to be closed. Tbe validity
of the act was called in question, mainly
on he ground that the legislature bad no
pover to pass it, but the supreme court
of the United States held that the legis
late re had the power, and that the power
was properly exercised. But the de
cision has no bearing on tbe question in
volved in this record. The question here
is not what power tbe legislature has
over tbe subject or what power it may
exe-cise; but tbe question is whether
tbe legislature has conferred the power
on ncorporaled towns and villages or
ganized under the general incorporation
act. We entertain no doubt but the
legislature has ample power to authorize
an incorporated town to establish and
maintain an abattoir if it saw proper by
appropriate legislation to do so; but
whether that power has been conferred
presents entirely a different question,
and one upon which tbe case cited has
no bearing. The legislature in the ex
erase of its legislative powers is unre
stn.iaed except so far as limitations
have been prescribed by the constitu
tion of the United States or of the state,
wh le on the other hand, a municipality
can only exercise such powers as have
been delegated to it by the legislature.
Tho city of Milwaukee vs Gross 21
Wi . 243, is also relied upon as an au
thority to sustain the ordinance of the
cit-. The ordinance in the case cited
authorized tbe comptroller of the city to
pre cure from the owner of a certain
slaughter house in the city the right of
all city butchers to use the slaughter
bouse free of charge, and all persons
wee prohibited from slaughtering am
ma's at any other plaoe within the
citv. The question arose as to the
power of the city to pass the ordinance
and it was held that the city had no
pover. But upon n examination of
tbe case it will be fmknd that the stat
ute under which the city acted was
much broader than our statute. One
clajse of the act conferred the power
"to direct the location and management
of slaughter houses and markets." Un
der this and other provisions it was
sail "these provisions of the charter
givs tbe common council ample au
thority to establish city slaughter
houses and regulate the management
thereof." There is such a distintion be
tw en the power conferred in tbe case
cittd and our general incorporation act
that we do not regard the case as an
authority; besides tbe ordinance passed
in tbe case cited is very different from
tbe ordinance involved here.
Under paragraphs 83 and 84 of our
incorporation act heretofore cited we
think power is conferred upon incorpora
ted towns to prohibit slaughter bouses or
an j unwholesome business or establish
meat within the incorporation. And tbe
conmon council of the town by appro
pri tte ordinance may regulate the loca
tion of any unwholesome business, and
they may cleanse, abate or remove the
sanie. But, such power does not au
thorize the passage of an ordinance like
the one in question.
The judgment of the appellate court
wil. be reversed and that of the' circuit
1 here seems to be but one point cons
sid( red by the supreme court and upon
tha: the decision is rendered. It is tbe
pover or lack of power vested in the city
to maintain and operate a public abattoir.
and the highest legal authority of tbe state
bolls that the city is not clothed with
suci power. The friends ot the abattoir
claimed that tbe state had the authority
to take such precautions and took the
ground that the legislature having that
pover in itself, gave the same to the
cities. This is the point of difference
bet ween the supreme and the appellate
courts, for while the former acknowl
edges the legislative rights, it denies
tha: the jurisdiction in such cases ex
tends to cities.
Ihe supreme court's ruling upholds
Jucge Glenn's ruling in all points and is
therefore very complimentary to that
