AN ACT

To remedy some of the injuries caused by the burning of the offices of the auditor,

treasurer and commissioners of Hamilton county, WHEREAS, The court house of Hamilton county was burned on March 29, 1884, and the tax lists, duplicates, books and papers, in the offices of the auditor, treasurer and commissioners of said county, were lost or destroyed before the semi-annual settlement was completed; therefore,

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, That the auditor of said county shall have power, and he is hereby directed as rapidly as possible to make up a tax list and duplicate, both of real and personal property from all the information he can gather, to replace, as nearly as practicable, the list and duplicate for the year 1883, lost through said fire, which list and duplicate, when thus made up by him, shall be the legal tax list and duplicate of said county for the year 1883, and in all matters shall be considered and treated as the original list and duplicate for said year.

Sec. 2. To aid said auditor in making such list and duplicate, each person liable for the payment of taxes on real estate, and each person İisted in the year 1883 for taxation on personal property, upon said lost list, shall at once produce and deliver to said auditor, or as by him directed, the receipted tax bill latest in date for the years 1881, 1882 and 1883, that such person may have in his possession or under his control; and said auditor shall give such notice by publication and make such demand for such receipts as he may deem best. For each receipt thus delivered, a voucher shall be given in such form as the auditor may prescribe.

Sec. 3. In each case where such receipt thus delivered to the auditor is for the whole or part of the taxes for 1883, he shall enter upon the real or personal list and duplicate, as the case may be, so far as shown by said receipt, the name of the person, the description and value of the property, the amount of taxes assessed, the amount paid, and the date of such payment. And in all cases where the receipts produced are for taxes on real estate for the year 1881 or 1882, said auditor shall enter the same facts upon a separate list, and upon the list and duplicate shall enter the name of the person, the description and value of the property, and taxes at the rate levied thereon for all purposes for the

year 1883.

Sec. 4. In case any person liable for taxes on real estate fails, within twenty days after the first publication of notice, to produce and deliver such receipt, then, and in each such case, said auditor shall enter such person's name upon the list and duplicate, together with as accurate a description of the real estate as possible, and unless said auditor can accurately ascertain the assessed value of said property from papers issued from his office or the office of the treasurer of said county, or copies thereof, including official publications of delinquent, forfeited, and other lists, he shall forth with assess the value of such real estate, and enter such assessed value on said list and duplicate, and thereupon shall levy and assess against the same taxes at the rate levied for all purposes for the year 1883. If any person liable for taxes on personal property fail within said twenty days to produce the receipt for taxes due in December, 1883, said auditor shall enter the name of such person on the personal list and duplicate, and place against the same such suni as was returned for taxation in the year 1883, as shown by the original blotter of the proper assessor, if in existence, if not, to be fixed by the oath of the person thus liable, and then failing, that by such mode as said auditor may decide upon, and thereupon said auditor shall levy and assess against said person taxes at the rate levied against him for all purposes for the year 1883. And unless the person thus failing to produce and deliver such receipt shall satisfy the auditor that the nonproduction thereof is owing to circumstances beyond his control, said auditor shall note against said lot or land upon the tax list and duplicate of real property, or against the name of such person on the personal list and duplicate, as the case may be, the words, “Receipt not produced," and shall thereupon levy and assess against said land or lot, or against said person, or both, as the case may be, a penalty of twenty per centum on the taxes levied and assessed upon or against the same as shown by said list, which penalty shall be collected with the other taxes.

SEC. 5. To enable said auditor to make a correct list of taxable real estate and of the persons liable for taxes on personal property for the year 1883, and to enable him to learn any facts to aid in making said list and duplicate, said auditor is authorized to examine any books and plats which he is satisfied have been copied from the books and plats kept by said auditor, and should any person whom said auditor has reason to believe has possession or control of any such books or plats refuse to submit the same for his inspection and use, said auditor may apply to the probate judge of said county for an order for the production thereof, whereupon the said judge shall issue a citation to the person named by said auditor requiring him to show cause on some day to be fixed by said judge why said books and plats are not produced. And upon the hearing, if said judge be satisfied that it is within the power of such person to produce the books or plats desired by the auditor, he shall compel their production under such reasonable regulations as he may direct, and shall enforce his order by fine or imprisonment, or both, as for contempt of court. In all cases where the production of any book or plat is ordered, the costs of said application shall be paid by the person summoned; otherwise by the county.
