ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY

Syllabus

The Legislature of New Jersey, by a statute, enacted that a "poor farm," belonging to the City of New Brunswick and situated in the Township of North Brunswick, should be at all times thereafter liable and subject to taxation by that township so long as it should be embraced within its limits. Subsequently, it was enacted by a statute that the property of the cities of the state, and all land used exclusively for charitable purposes, should be exempt from taxation, and that all inconsistent acts were repealed. The "poor farm" was used exclusively for charitable purposes.
