(1) when any person usurps, intrudes into, or unlawfully holds or exercises any public office or any franchise, or any office in a corporation created by authority of the state;

(2) when any public officer does or suffers an act which by law causes a forfeiture of office; or

(3) when an association or number of persons acts as a corporation without being duly incorporated.
