"In dealing with the question of
tax title purchase the committee is o
the opinion that there is need of the
abolition of the tax title purchaser
as well as the tax dodger and that
both are as distasteful as the tax
ferret. The statement is made that
the tax titles are the most reckless
of speculations and their owners th
most unscrupulous of creditors. To
eliminate the abuse it is recommend-
ed that when taxes becomes a lien on
real estate that at the discretion of
the county commissioners and when
in their judgment the county is in
need of tax returns the county may
sell after giving notice of delinquency
and allowing the lien to continue
three years after which time the coun-
ty may go into court and foreclose
the same as though a mortgage and
a perfect title be secured."

It is reliably reported that Baker's

One of the most imperative needs

well known by the dstrict judges of
