If power is either expressly given or expressly denied to a corporation by its charter, the only question open for discussion is the meaning of the express terms of the charter. But where a corporation attempts to exercise power neither expressly given nor withheld by its charter the question presented is whether the power is implied from those expressly given. An exhaustive discussion of this question would occupy more space than can be given to it here, and properly belongs to corporation law. The following propositions are given rather as suggestive examples than as an exhaustive enumeration of implied powers.
