-.hare of the public bunions will be
thrown on eeitaiu kinds of pnpcil,

statutes are passed which Iiupoie

Legislative Intent
The legislature, 11s 11 'jenoral rale,
has constituted that part of the I
counties outside the limits of the .
munieipnlities tax districts for tl.e
piir-siM- of prosidiinr funds Tor the I
improvement of the rum I liiitliw.. i
has the rijht to lew one-half of the
county tax for road purisises upon
taxable properly within the limits of
the city of Ashhiud would he in
d'uect conflict with the section of the
charter to which reference is made.
Hy this section it elenilv appears
that the jurisdiction or iiulhorilv of
the county court of Jackson county
to levy taxes for county road pur
poses is entirely waiitintf. Au'hoi
ily is cstcd in the municipality to
levy taxes 011 property within the
city limits for htreet purposes
It follows that the judument of the
lower court must he affiiiued, and it
is o ordered.
