The Redemption of Lands Forfaited
to the State for Non P.tyinenit of
In our last i ssue of August 30th, we
published u letter from Comptrollor
Ocn.Tal ITogc to Hon. S. J.
Tee, in reference to the redemption of
lands sold for the payment of taxes, and
forfeited to the Slate fnr the want, of
bidders, and remarked at the lime that
il was the intention of Mr. Loo t?test
the soundness of the Comptroller's at
titude on this subject iu the Courts.
Our own views of the matter coincided
with those or Mr. Leo, but as the sub
ject was somewhat obscured by the
amount of legislation which has been
had on the Lax question for the past fodr
years, we determined to postpone nipt
expression until prd could embraeo the
opportunity of critically cxamiuirg the
question. This we have dune, and the
enquiry has sutisueu us that the Comp
troller1 is wrong. In the fir.-t place, be
seems to labor under a misapprehension
of the law when he broadly asserts that
such land? cannot be redeemed, and re
fere to section 108 of the laws of 18(18,
alleged to have been amended by aet
of March 12. 1&72. nod confirmatory oT
bis oxenion. Now this section does
not refer to forfeited lands, and was
never legally amended by the act refer
red lp: anvl it is strange that Mr. lingo
should so believe when he had beforo
him the Revised Statutes, in whieh this
very ,'cction. as well as others, of the
tax act ol 1 bli8 wore adopted and made
the law of the State by act of February,
IS72, and cd force by the provisions ?f

At the time of the passage of tho act
of Maruh 12. 1S72, no portion of the

and other sections of the latter, it sttctu
ptid to amend a statute thai was no lon

but its provisions were made law by net

ceived, therefore, that the Legislature,

ignotanlly amend-d an net thai was not
of force, and that, tho only law in rela

Mr. Hogc refers to ihr Joint Resolu

intention of tho Legislature, an ! ns a
