—OFFICE OF— SIDNEY L. SAMUELS, Attorney and Counselor at Law.

Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 19, 1907. 190

To the Honorable Board of Commissioners of the City of Fort Worth:-

Relative to the communication, under date of November 9th, from Mr.Morgan Bryan concerning the refunding of the unearned part of the city occupation tax No. 7459 , issued by the City to R.T.Hatcher to pursue the occupation of retail liquor dealer at Fourteenth and Calhoun Streets for one year from October 18,1907 to October 17,1908 ,I beg to say that Section 7 of the Acts of the Thirtieth Legislature, generally known as the Baskin-McGregor Act, provides for the refunding of the unearned part of the license when same is sold under mortgage and when the purchaser presents the license for such action to the governing body of the city.

I suggest that an affidavit be obtained from the purchaser, J.E.Drendell, to the effect that the license has never been forfeited by action of the court and that no act was done by the licensee which would authorize a forfeiture of the same, and that he, J.E.Drendell, is the owner of the license under purchase at the mortgage foreclosure sale, and that the licensee R.T.Hatcher has no further interest therein.

When this is done, it is proper, under the statute, for the Commissioners to authorize a refunding of the value of the unexpired part of the license.

Yours very truly,

Sidney L. Samuels
