Notes of Decisions

Where county transferred forest land that it could have kept and administered for its own benefit to state “in considera­tion of the pay­ment to the county of the percentage of revenue derived from such lands,” county is entitled to enforce that claim and state cannot avoid its obliga­tion to county by conveying the prop­erty to third per­son.
