LYNCH'S OPINION IN RE GARD TO THAT TERRITORY Assessment of Property in Deer Lodge County Cut Off From Silver Bow Is Discussed. Deputy County Attorney Lynch has rendered an opinion in regard to the assessment of property in Deer Lodge county cut off from this county. The opinion is concise and clear. After reviewing the act of the leglsla ture and referring to various sections of the political code, Mr. Lynch says: "After a county is divided or its boundary altered, all taxes levied upon property in the segregated territory after such division or alteration must be col lected by the officers of and belong to hme county to which the segregated territory was annexed. That being the case and Section 3825 of the political code requir ing the county commissioners in manda tory terms to levy taxes on the second Monday in August upon all the taxable property in the county, it is clear that the taxes for zgoj to be charged against the territory aforesaid must be collected and shall belong to Deer Lodge county and not to Silver Bow county."
