Halaman 202 - It is a general and undisputed proposition of law that a municipal corporation possesses and can exercise the following powers and no others: First, those granted in express words; second, those necessarily or fairly implied in or incident to the powers expressly granted; third, those essential to the declared objects and purposes of the corporation — not simply convenient but indispensable.
Halaman 80 - ... rule-making power of the Senate and the House of Representatives, respectively, and as such they shall be considered as part of the rules of each House, respectively, but applicable only with respect to the procedure to be followed in such House in the case of resolutions (as defined in section 202) ; and such rules shall supersede other rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent therewith...

Halaman 512 - ... and as long as it continues to exist in its present form, it speaks not only with the same words, but with the same meaning and intent, with which it spoke when it came from the hands of its framers, and was voted on and adopted by the people of the United States.
Halaman 201 - ... central authority, and hence, while the rule is also fundamental that the power to make laws cannot be delegated, the creation of municipalities exercising local selfgovernment has never been held to trench upon that rule. Such legislation is not regarded as a transfer of general legislative power, but rather as the grant of the authority to prescribe local regulations, according to immemorial practice, subject of course to the interposition of the superior in cases of necessity.
