A decision just made by the supreme court settles the matter of ta.x sale certiflcates issued by the county, an old trouble in this state. A Topeka dispatch says: "The supreme court has up|^eld the constitutionality of the law passed in 1901 giving counties the right to sell, at judicial* sale, real estate for delinquent taxes. Under an old law, tax deeds wore issued. They were always found defective and thcj purchaser of land at tax sale was never allnwifd tu keep the land. The new law provides (hat when a county has bid in properly at tax sale for three years it can dispose of it at a judicial sale arid give absolute title. Atchison county sold some property whVh otiginally belonged to Mrs. Mary E. Baker, and upon which she had not paid the taxes. She filed suit to enjolnj the sale, attacking the constitutiona?ity of the law. The district courit upheld the law and the' supreme court today affirmed the decision of the lower court. This decision willr bar people from letting the county bid their property in at tax sale for a series of years an^ then getting the county to throw off nearly all the taxes later on and turn the property back to the owner on a compromise." lola Racket Will Move.
