Before said sale, and to determine the value of said property, the district judge
of said county, upon application in writing to the board of county commissioners,
shall appoint three appraisers, who before entering upon the discharge of their duties,
and within five days after notice of their appointment, shall take an oath in substance
as follows: That they will support the constitution of the state of Kansas and faithfully
discharge their duties as appraisers of the county farm or asylum of ____________ county, Kansas; that immediately upon taking said oath said appraisers shall view
said property and appraise the same and file a report with the clerk of the district
And on the filing of said report the clerk of said court shall give thirty days' notice
in the official paper of said county, which notice shall state the day and hour when
said report of said commissioners will come on for hearing before said court for confirmation;
that if twenty-five or more resident taxpayers shall, within twenty days after the
return of the appraisement hereinbefore provided for, file their objections thereto
in writing, attacking the correctness of such appraisement, stating wherein the same
is incorrect, duly verified by one or more of such taxpayers, it shall be the duty
of the court to pass upon said objections, and for that purpose the court may hear
testimony for or against said confirmation, and upon a full hearing shall approve
said appraisement if the same is fair and just; and if in the judgment of said court
said appraisement is unfair, then said court shall make a finding as to the actual
value of said property, which finding shall be conclusive. Said hearing may be held at chambers.
