several days ago with reference to the crime not coding under the provisions of tha acts of the twentythird general The statute by express provision recites that no change which may ba made in com

and whatever may be held to have been done under the old was dur ing the year from the first of January or at least from March During the year several members of the city who are in this drew from the city treasury an amount aggregating in the neighborhood of from S900 to The exact amount Is not because If the defendants are they are equally whether the amount be 35 or the de fendants are Indicted for this and the question which Is made by this motion to direct a verdict is un der those It be said that a crime has been committed under our a crime known to our This is pure ly a question of lam to look into the statute and determine from it whether legal requirements have been shown from which It may be said a crime has been We have in this state no common law In order that any act may be said to be a crime it must be because we can turn to the statute and there read within its letter that such asts are held to be a Under our statute crime is di vided into two felonies and mis The former is generally eaey of definition the latter is not always so In all it must be determined from the statute that certain acts do or do not constitute crime whether felony or misdemeanor It is also a rule of the law with which all lawyers are acquainted and which is one of the most equitable ever introduced into the body of our law that all criminal statutes must be strictly There is no such thing as constructed there is no such thing as crime by implication of the statuteTurning now to section it will be seen that if there be any prohibition within its snch prohibition relates only to compensation to be received for attendance at meetings of the and does not inSvords prohibit the taking of compensation for the performance of any other And that in any event prohibi which it may be plainly seen is to be found in said section does not coTe within the meaning and certainly not within the letter and form of the provisions of sections and as It Is manifest tho legislature Intended the stme should have The acts here complained of as I have before said may be within tha Intent of the statute but unless I can find that they are within its letter I must find that it Is not In the statute at Whatever may be the other rights which tha city may have against the defendants it is not for me to nor am I called upon to determine whether the acts complained of were legitimate or I am not here for that and the ques tion of the rightfullness or wrongfulness of the acts done cannot be considered by except that I find that within the letter of the statutes such acts consti tute a criminal As I read the statute I cannot find anything which sat isfies me that the acts complained ot are by specific provision of the statute made a and hence the motion to direct a verdict must be The state council asked that other cases be continued until the supreme court could give a ruling on the which was by counsel for defen The court has taken the matter under advisement until
