"In 1881, the admission of Dakota Territory to statehood foundered in part on Eastern resentment at repudiation of railroad-aid bonds by one of the Territory's counties. Although the Supreme Court has as usual ruled in favor of the bondholders, the county refused to pay. In its recalcitrance the municipal corporation was aided and abetted by the territorial legislature," passed the statutes printed here, rendering satisfaction of the judgments from the counties impossible.
