Inn Caie A IteqneBtj fjor a PnrU
Andrew B Duvall Attorney foXthe Dis
trict yesterday submitted to thctommiK
sloners his opinion upon rtte Application
of James O Tavlor through his attorney
R A Ford to sct aside the tax sale of
April ISM of OS of an acre In plat 4 G
and R Pike subdivision The applica
tion also includeel a request for the can
cellation of the tax certificate Issued to
M B Newman With reference to the
matter at issue the Attornej sajs
It appears that on March 19 1X9G this
property was convejed to said James O
Tailor and assessed to him for the gen
eral taxeb for the jear 1W8 In said as
sessment the improvements thereon were
omitted the property was advertised and
sold at the sale for taxes In April 1SUD
The property was bold as It had been ad
vertise el namely 05 of an acre G anel R
Pike
It appears that the land convejed to
Taylor was 17 of an acre the computa
tion of tt area having been erroneously
made The act of Congress with refer-
ence to taxes and tax sales in the District
of Columbia provides Section 15 that the
said Commissioners shall not convey any
property sold for taxes If they shall dis
cover before the conveyande that the
sale was for any cause Invalid and Inef
fectual to give title to the property sold
but they shall cancel the sale and cause
the purchase money to be refundeiL to
the purchaser his represcntataVie or as
signs
It is quite apparent that nOValld deed
could be given based on thltr tax sale It
would be Impossible to describe the US
of an acre sold for taxes I am of
the opinion that the sale for this cause
Is Invalid and the same should accorel
lnglv be set aside and the tax certificate
canceled
In March last the Commissioners sub
mitted to the Comptroller of the Treas
ury for his decision a statement of facts
relative to the claim of John J Nolan and
Walter D Nolan trading under the name
of James Nolan Sons The claim re
ferreel to was that the forfeiture of 15
per diem upon contract No 2775 to repair
and change the plumbing lnJhe Grant
school building should not be exacted
The following month the Comptroller
rendered a decision in which It was helct
that in making settlement with these con
tractors the amount forfeited under the
terms of the contract should be deductd
from the contract price as liquidated
damages
Yesterday the Comptroller Informed the
Commissioners that he nad been request
ed by the Secretary of the Treasury to
re examine and review the decision The
Comptroller states that he understands
the contractors claim that all the perti
nent facts were not submitted upon which
to base a decision The Comptroller
states further that the decision was ren
dered upon the facts presented by the
Commissioners and he Informs the Board
tliiit If they desire to submit addition il
facts he will be pleased to consider them
in connection witn tne etjsc me comp
troller further states thief fits ultlmste
decision will be based entirely upon the
facts presented by thcHoard
bv
Lieutenant Commander John R Edwards
U S N and Major -ft-Sal Abbott
U S A have w rltten iti Oie Commls
slonen relative to the dirrfprhg or refuse
on the vacant lot just north of Connecti
cut Avenue between Tw enty tlrst and
Twenty second Streets northw est They
have informed the Commissioners that
the dumping of refuse upon this lot is
the source of a nuisance the people
living in the vicinity They state that a
bad smell emanates from the dump and
that In their opinion It Is a menace to
the public health
A sanitary inspector from the Health
Department was sent te Investigate the
complaint and he has reported that the
dump in question Is only for the use of
street sweepers and that the elumping is
In accorelance with the regulations of
that department It In UQcttrstood that
the use of the lot for the purpose named
is not to be long continued and that an
other place for the punxiWwllI have to
be found In the opinion the Health
Department the elump is not near enough
to the houses in the vlclrVy to become
an actual menace to the health of their
occupants and that because of the tem
porary nature of the deposit of material
there it would not be advisable to take
any action in the premises
S T Abtrt a few dajs ago wrote to
the Commissioners calling attention to
the lack of a park in the vicinity of Kcn
jon and Thirteenth btreets northwest
and suggested that the ground for a pub
lic reservation be acquired there The
matter was referred to W P Richards
of the Engineer Department for consid
eration aid report He now states that a
reservatim was ence embodied In the
first section plans of hlghwajs and thus
had the recommendation of the Commis
sioners but that Congress directed a re
arrangement of these plans and provided
that no reservation should be platted
over an existing sub division
In view of this fact Mr Richards
points out tint the Commissioners are
prevented from taking any action such
as that suggested and must wait the
action of Congress Mr Richards recom
mends and the Commissioners have ap
proved that Mr Abert be Informt d In
accordance with the facts pointed out
above
Some time ago John XI Taj lor acting

the Commissioners to rtdeem the title to

chaser at the tax sale of ISM The matter
was referred to the otilcials of the Tax Do
pirtment and reported upon aderclj by
them Thereupon Mr Taj lor wrote a sec
ond Urn to the board abklntf that the
matter might be reviewed and poualbl
with a rrersed decIMon orf account of
certain reasons which he stated
li 11 LmrmllU the As3ejssor In re
porting upon the case the t econd time
