shall publish annually a full and complete itemized state -


ment of their receipts and disbursements in some newspaper

published in Harford County ; said statement to be inserted

once only, and at least one week before the annual levy.

SEC. 16. And be it enacted, Any person may appeal from


the valuation made by the assessors to the commissioners at

from asses

their next regular meeting and the commissioners shall

remain in session as long as may be reasonable to hear and

determine such appeals and give reasonable notice of such

meeting and may abate or increase the assessment as may

seem just.

SEC. 17. And be it enacted, That whenever the commis-

tax— what

sioners shall levy a tax they shall cause to be made out

collect the same.

SEC. 18. And be it enacted, The bailiff shall within thirty

days after the receipt of such list and warrant, render to each

Duty of

person named therein an account of the tax, and if he can-


not render to any person any such account, by reason of his

non-residence or otherwise, he shall publish such account in

some newspaper published in Harford County, and post the

same in some conspicuous place, and may, unless the same

be paid within thirty days, after the publication or delivery

county taxes.

SEC. 19. And be it enacted, That the bailiff shall make

all collections required of him, and pay the same to the

for similar services, and when the bailiff wilfully fails to

discharge any duties of his office, he may, in addition to the

remedy on his bond, be fined by the commissioners in their

discretion, not exceeding ten dollars for any one offense, for

the payment of which said fine his bond shall be responsible.
