Said section was again amended by tho act approved Mnrch 17, 1906) and as amend? ed by the last montlonod act, it does not provldo l'or the separate assesa ment of standlng tlmber. You miist not, thcrefore assess standlng tlmber separatoly from the land tn maklng your Land Book of 1907." If the stntutos to which tho Auditor refers wero all tho legislation on the subjcct it would not fotlow that tho oxprnss provlsion ln tho act of Febru? ary 21, 190G, "relating to tho assossment of standlng tlmber was repealod by tho later aet of March 17th. Tho act of March 17th does not lu terraa re peal pr antend the aet of February 21at; lt merely amenda and re-enacts chapter 23 of the Code and repeals such acta aa aro ln conflict. Thero Is no confllct between the provlsion for tho aeparato aasessment of standlng tlmber in tho act of February 21st and anythlng contalned in the act of March 17th, and tho fallure of the. latter act to refer to tho former warrants the concluslou that It was not lntended to affect tho oxpross and distlnct provlalons ln the former act for the asaessment of thls class of tasahle property. But whether or not these two stat utca are in conillct, ao far as the aa? sessment of standlng tlmber ia con cerned, is dmmaterlal. Sectton 472^ contalned ln chapter 24 of tho Codo, is, in my oplnlon, still ln force. That section, as amended durlng tho ses aion of 1SS9-'9Ci, is as follows: "If tho surface of tho land ls hold by ono person and tho standlng tlm? ber, trees, minerals, mlneral wator or oll under the surface be hold in feo simplo by another, tlie commissioner shall detormlno tho relatlvo valuo of each, and shall assess the. sovoral own ers wlth tho valuo of their respectlvo lntorests. If tho surface nnd standlng tlmber, trees, minerals, minerai water or oll be ownod by tho same person, tho commissioner shall aaccrtain tho valuo of tho land, Incluaivo of tho stnnding tlmber trees, minerals. mln? eral watora or oll, and assess tho aamo nt auch aacertalned valuo. Tho com? missioner shall mako the asscaament under the provlsions of chapter 2.1." I nm awaro that chapter '117, of Acts 1902-'3-M, as publlshed, rope.als sec? tion 472; but thls chapter makes ap proprlatlona of public monoy, and under the provlsions of section R0 of tho Constltutlon a .blll maklng such approprlatlons doos not hecorno a law unlcBS paaaod by tho offlrmativo voto of a majorlty of all of tho members of both houscs of Logislaturo. By referonco to pngo RS8 of tho Scnato journal of that session, it will be seen that thla repealing act dld not rccolvo tho majorltj' vote ln tho Sen-' ato rcqulrod by tho Constltutlon, nnd accordlngly. in tho Inngunge of thi court In tho recent ense of AVhltlock vs. Hawklns, 105 Ara., 242, thls aet, "whllo havlng ovory outward sorri blnnco of authentlclty, not havlng ro celvod the nocessary number of votos, fnlled' of its passago, and ls vold."
