under the constitution to exempt
property of plaintiffs from taxation,

euditor. The company owns $250,000
steate bonds Issued under act 116 of
1866, upon' which no interest has been
paid since 1873. The company ap
plied for a mandamus to compel the
auditor to have a tax levied to pay
Interest. It appears from the record
that plaintiff as holder of the same
bonds took steps to have them funded
at the rate of 60 cents on the dollar, as
a compromise under the terms of act
No. 11 of 1876. conditionally with the
board of liquidation, but was not alow.
ed to do sc', the court holding that the
bonds had not been issued in strict
conformity to law and for-a valid
consideration, and that want of know. I)
ledge of the fraud and acquisition for
a valid consideration would not relieve
third parties. On a writ of error the
United States Supreme Court affirmed
the samA. In concluding the decision
the court said: "A the object in
view is the enforcement of a contract
of the State, and as the State Is not a
party to the suit, and as the ,defeudant
