School districts Nos. 18 and 19, in Burt
precinct, have a number of warrants
outstanding but no inhabitants to pay
taxes to redeem tho same, only one per
son liviDg in the territory comprising
the two districts. The districts are dead
so to speak, and it looks as if they were
in need of an administrator, a receiver,
or something of that kind. Persons
owning land in these districts will soma
day have the outstanding paper to pay.
School officers are in the habit of issu
ing school orders regardless of whether
there is a levy to pay them or not, which
is wrong. A county can only issue war
rants to 85 per cent of the levy, and if
more are issued the officers issuing the
same are personally liable for the amount.
The courts would probably hold that
school officers could not issue warrants
beyond the amount the tax levy would
raise, and any issued beyond that amount
would be the obligation of the officers
individually and cot the dislrict. Gandy
