Pendletons Greatest Department Store The Peoples Warehouse Where It Pays to Trade TEXT OF OPIII REGARDING MOHEY FOR THE LIBRARY N T 1 CEJf It you are thinking ot i The following- la the complete text of the opinion Klven to District At torney Keator by Attorney uenerai Brown in reimrd to the use of city money for the benefit of the county library: Salem. Ore.. May 1,19J". Honorable R. I. Keator. DIM. Atty.. I'matilla Co., Pendleton. OreRon. Pear Sir: 1 have your favor of the 2Tth ulti mo, in Mhlrh you ask my opinion whether the city council of The t'itj ot Pendltttnn may contract with the county court of I'matilla county to contribute tn the support of the public library owned and operated by said couiuv without violatina iction 9 of Article XI of the Constitution of Oreuon. and xt-ttimc out the facts which call forth this question. Sid section of the Constitution reads as follows: "No county, city, town or other mu nicipal corporation, by a vote or iti citizens or otherwise, shall become i stockholder In any joint stock com i inm-. corporation or association w hat : ever, or raise money for. or loan its i credit to. or in aid of, any such com I pany. corporation, or association." -I Section 431. Lord's Orecon 1-aws. ! which is a part of the public library 'law of Oresun. reads as follows: I "If there exists in any incorporated city a secular or nonsectarlan library owned and controlled by a society or ' corporation, the council of such in corporated city city may. when deem ed best for the Interests of the city, levy the tax hereinbefore provided fori and in lieu of supporting and niaintnininK a public library, enter In to a contract with such society or cor poration for the purpose of providing the Inhabitants of such city with the free use of the library upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon between the council and the society or corporation: ana tne terms of such contract may give the control and management of the li brary to such society or corporation, in which event section 4319 shall have no effect, but the other sections there of shall be considered to be a part of said contract; provided, however, that all money paid to such society or corporation under' slid contract shall be expended solely for the mainten ance of thr library, and for no other purpose." It Is. therefore, evident that the cllv council has authority to make such contract under the statute un less the same is In violation of the constitutional provision above quoted and In fact they would have such au thoiity independent of the statute, if not prohibited by the Constitution. The Supreme Court of Oregon in the case of Municipal Security Co. vs. Haker .County. 39 Ore. .. at pages 403-7. considered the effect of this provision of the Constitution and Its opinion as set forth on said paces Is helpful In construing its provisions. Quotlnu- at pace 405 from the decision t.t the Supreme Court of Ohio, as fol lows: ...... but It (the city) cannot ugage in an enterprise with an in dividual or corporation for the con struction or erection of a property which, as a completed whole, is to be i w-ned and controlled In part by the rity and in part by an individual cor poration." Our court considering this language says: "We cannot believe that the lar.gu-.-.Ke of oir constitution hereinbefore luoted is susceptible to the construc tion given to .a similar clause by the Supreme Court of Ohio, nor yield our consent to the reasons assigned for the decision there rendered." The court then proceeds to explain that this section of the Constitution was adopted In view of the experi ence of municipalities of other states taking stock In railroads and other business concerns In order to develop their communities and to avoid the disastrous results which followed such investment and that it Is not inteno ed to prevent a municipality from owning property Jointly with an other person, association or corpora tion, and concludes: "In the csseat bar. if the relief de manded were granted, the county would not- thereby become a stock, holder In any Joint stock company, corporation, or association whatever: nor would it be raising money for. or loaning Its credit to or in aid of. any such company, corporation or asso ciation." It may be added that this was a esse where the county had purchased certain real property and Issued its warrants therefor, but on account ot the constitutional limitation upon county indebtedness such warrants were declared Invalid and the county was sued to compel It to reconvey the undivided Interest In such property I represented by the unpaid warrants. ! It- the urrscnt Instance. the city would not become a stick holder in any corporation. Joint stock compsny or assoclat ion. nor would it be rais ing money for or loaning Its credit to. or In aid of any such company, cor-i..--.f ln r association, as the words ''are there used. It has authority to ' I maintain a library either as the owner Jithereof or by contract with another ilto maintain such library and furnish i .Ill rary facllltii s to Its cltlsens snd in '(either case it does not become a stockholder of or contribute In aid of the one furnishing the library facili ties. It may In f.ict be an aid to the M.int.- r..r fh citv to make such ftj i contract but It is also an aid to sny tptf-pon. firm or rornorat Ion to fur tnlsh any city supplies and It could 'hsrd'y be h-ld thet this is a viola tion of said section of the Constttu jt nn f.-r if so the countv would tie In-Ih.l.it-d from purchasing or ontract I li:c f.-r an1 s.ipplles or service what-'-,....! ;ted white ttl'l Is redocinK !h.' ?
