1879 edition. Excerpt: ...It is agreed that in the valuation books
of the assessors there is no description whatever of the real
estate taxed. We think this was such an omission on the part of the
assessors as relieved the collector of the duty of completing the
collection of the taxes; and that his neglect to do so, was not a
breach of his official bond; and consequently will not support an
action against his sureties. Not being described, no lien was
created, and the real estate could not be sold for non-payment of
the taxes assessed upon it. The omission deprived the collector of
one mode of collecting the tax. There are many errors, mistakes,
and omissions, which will not have that effect; and, in such cases,
the collector will not be relieved of the duty of collecting the
tax. But an error that does have that effect--that does deprive the
collector of one of the modes which he would otherwise have of
collecting the tax--will relieve him of the duty of collecting it;
and his neglect to collect it will not be a breach of his official
bond; and, consequently, will not support an action against his
sureties. Greene v. Lunt, 58 Maine, 518. Orneville v. Pearson, 61
