Those anggnatcd that tho new act to be placed before the legislature should tfrbvuic tor iho sale, ot all lands afterislx months In arrears from tho end ot the year in which tlio taxes wero levied; that tho redemption period bo one yuar; that land not bid in at the sale should at the expiration ot tho redemption period automatically become the iiroperly of tho city in which locdted; it! tho property, is redeemed all taxes levied to the date-ot the redemption to be paid.
