COR. FARNAZVL AND
NO CRIMINALS IN HOLT COUNTY
the Docket All
O'NEILL., Neb., Dec. 31. (Special.) The
adjourned September term of the district
court adjourned sins die today. Several
cases of considerable importance,, as they
Involved titles to land In this county which
In the last few years have become valuable,
have been submitted to Judge Harrington
and also Judge Westover, who presided dur
ing a portion ot the term. Numerous de
cisions have been cited on both sides of
the controversies and from recedt decisions
of the supreme court it will keep the trial
Judges guessing what to do in tha various
cases under advisement. '
The docket for the September term con
tained 515 civil and no criminal cases. Most
of the civil cases are where the county Is
foreclosing for taxes due it on lsnd by non
resident owners, or where parties bought
the land at tax sale and brought an action
to foreclose the same . as ttey would a
mortgage. . -
The late decision of, the supreme court In
the case of Logan count'agalnst Carnahan
is more discussed in western Nebraska than
any decision ever handed down by that
tribunal and should It stand as the law ot
the state it will cause more litigation than
any decision ever promulgated. This de
cision undoubtedly involves the property
rights of hundreds of citizens of Nebraska.
After the supreme court decided in the
case of Grant against Bartholomew that
parties owning or buying tax sale certifi
cates either at public or private sale, and
also that a county had the right to fore
close on land for delinquent taxes, thou
sands of cases were Immediately brought
In nearly every western county of the state.
In one county west of Holt 275 cases were
brought by the county attorney against the
owners of land for delinquent taxes. It
appeared that no taxes had been paid for
several years, and the balance of the tax
payers who resided In the county began
to kick, and the county board Instructed
the county attorney to bring an action
against every piece of land where the tsxes
had been delinquent for more than two
years. It wss discovered that there were
nearly 400 cases. Actions were commenced
and In a few cases the taxes were paid up,
but in the majority of cases the land waa
sold for two-thirds ot Its appraised value,
which in nearly all cases wss about the
amount of taxes and costs, to parties re
siding In the county and sheriffs' deeds is
sued to them. In many cases these lands
so sold have been transferred several times
for four and five times what thty cost
when they were bought from the county,
owing to the great Increase In the value of
land. Thus It will be seen tbst should the
late decision of the court become the law
of the state, which in a measure reverses
the former decision it will cause no end of
That portion of the latter decision which
seems to be most criticised Is where It
holds that a county or its agent must buy
the land at tax sale before It can com
mence an action to force the collection of
Its tax lien.
