purpose, and it may, if so desired, create for that purpose a capital stock of not
more than 100,000 dollars, to be divided into shares of not more than 10 dollars each,
which said shares may be subscribed for and held by any person, but in case such persons,
or any persons holding shares who are not members of said camp or of the department
encampment of said department, or agents of the same, they shall have no voice in
the control of said building during the life of said corporation: And provided further,
In case any such corporation so desires, it may, for the purpose of building any such
memorial buildings, unite in the erection thereof with any township, village, city
or county, to be used jointly for the purpose of the United Spanish War Veterans,
and the public purposes of any such public corporation, in such manner and form as
may be agreed upon by the parties thereto respectively: Provided, That in case of
the joint erection of any such memorial building, that when any such camp or department
becomes defunct as a corporation the said building shall belong in perpetuity to the
public corporation and its successors, subject to the provisions of law. And any such corporation organized under this act may take, purchase, hold and own
suitable lots or parcels of ground as may be convenient for the purposes of a cemetery,
and make all lawful rules and regulations for the disposition of lots therein and
the burial of the dead: Provided, This act shall not be construed to affect any municipal
regulation in regard to cemeteries: And provided further, That any such corporation
may join with any public corporation in the creation of any such cemetery, or division
of any existing cemetery, but in case of such joint agreement, such cemetery, after
the dissolution of the said corporation, shall revert to and become the property of,
or subject to the control of, any such public corporation, to be maintained by it
in perpetuity as a distinct United Spanish War Veteran division of such cemetery.
