Kia--Various r>io*oriM exist why

the latencm of the crop*, have hin
dered the prompt payment on the

In answer to your inquiry in re- 1
fereiwe to tin* collection ol the thirty I
per ctnt. damage* imposed by the
Art ot 177.r», lor the non |«*y ment of
taxes after tha Kr*t Man lay in l)e
ci inU'i, I have thiato *a\ : That the
statute, if constitutional, aecnta to !*•
im|ieralive on the Tax ( oiketon* to
make the (iillectiott of the damage*,
after the time af*»\ c mentioned. Tint
if w e concede the power of the l«<^
islature to im|M>*e the thirty |tercent. I
damage* lor non payment ol taxe*
otiibe <lay indicated in the Act, *till
the question arise* how that penalty
mu*t be isdlccted. The power to
levy or diAiraiti for the collection ol'
taxca without a previous judgment
in acompetent court, fixing the lia-*
hility, and the default of the tax
|>ayer, lia* l*ecn frequently assailed
upon tin* gr*>iin<l that it ms violation
nt that clause of the Constitution
which prohibit* any itenum from b« 1
mg deprived ot his life, liberty or
property “without due process of
law.** It lias, howrsvar, lawn *us
tamed upon this ground and no oth
er- -that such power is iwnlial, in]
order that the government may have
a *|ieedy and summary remedy for
the eollection oi the revenue nece»
sary to its existence. This ueccssi
tr, however, doe* not exist as to any
damages or penalty which may Ik*
imposed on th* tax |>ayer for a tail
ore to |my hia taxes at the time pre
scribed by law. Such damages, if
collectable at all, raa be enfonvd1
only by suit in a coni|>etent court. |
and upon due notice to the alleged
delinquent. The statute, therefore,
w inch requires such eoilocliou to l»e
mad** hy^distress, aud without snit, is
unoonstunuonal, and affords no pro-1
taction to any Tax Collector who,
artiug ia obedience to it, eliall under
take to collect such damages by dis
tress. II* would iu such twee, Im a
trespasser, and any sale made by him
of |tronorty to milect such damages,
would be void, not will.siaiuimg the
