I charge you that a man has no right to sell intoxicating beverages within four miles of an incor porated institution of ienrning witbi.i a taxing district of tho second class. This right is expressly prohibited by the act that creates the taxing distiicts " The sixteenth section of tho net does provide "That nothing in this act shall be con-.-trued as permitting ihe retailing of in toxicating iqw,r in Hiieh laxing district within four miles of a chartered in.-litu-lion of learning." And the chargedoes squarely raise iheqlies.-ioii whether this section can have any and what riled on llit! :-eeoiid section of the act of 1877. Ly the act of LSSJI, chapter 1 li), verse I. the dealing in liquor by retail, or tippling, is made a privilege, as it had been by the pre-existing revenue laws, lho dealers being taxed as other merchants, ami also ma.!.' o. .... additional tax, graduated in a snecilied I sf('"1''"' intent is fully carried out in cv- nioue.

His honor, the trial judge, was of opinion that the right lo sell liquor by retail within four miles of a chartered institution of learning in a taxing dis trict of the second class was prohibited by the act creating these districts. And it may be conceded I hat such w as the intention of the legislators by tho lan guage used in the sixteenth section "that nothing in this act shall be con strued us permitting the retailing of in-' toxicating liquors in such taxing dis tricts within four miles of a chartered institution of learning " Hut the inten tion cannot be elloctuatcd except by treating this section as repealing the general statute of 1877, or exempting the incorporated communities within those districts from its provisions. And the difliculty is in seeing how this can he done consistently with tlio provisions of the constitution, and the usual rules of statutory construction. Our duty is to carry into died tho intention, of the legislation, if possible. lho act creating taxing districts ot the second class does not give to the corporation organized under it, or to the oflieers of such a corporation any authority in relation to the privileges created by the general laws of the State. The corporation can puss no or dinance inconsistent with these laws. It cannot even levy a levy a tax on either property or privileges. This is express ly forbidden by section f) ami by section II ; the .Stale levies a tax of itfl on ev ery 8101) of taxable properly, and on all merchants and privileges a lax equal lo the general State lax, for .'he purpose of supporting (lit! corporate government. The municipal authorities lire not vest ed, by the ad, with power to permit or forbid the exercise of any business li censed by the State as a privilege. Nor has thi! Legislature undertaken in the act, by positive language, to forbid such exercise The language of section l(i is merely negative, "thai nothing in the act shall be construed as permitting," etc. And there is nothing in the act which eitiier permits or forbids in so many words. The constitution of the State, article 2, section 17, says : "All acts which re peal, revive or amend former laws, shall recite in their caption or otherwise the title or sulistance ot the law repeal ol , reviv'.-d or amended. Ihe act crealin .axing districts of the 2d class cannot be considered as an act to repeal or amend the act of 1477, for neither in its "caption or otherwise" does it recite the "title or substance" of the penal statute. Nor does it contain any such positive provisions upon the subject matter o' the statute as would operate to repeal by implication. The sixteenth section, us we have seen, i.s merely neg ative in its language. The truth is. tlifi Legislature had a general intent to create ti new class of municipal corpora tions, ami a particular intent that this class, of corporations should not bo with in the savings ot the penal statute. 1 he N. & 0.
