Any person on killing a wolf or fox, may claim the bounty thereon offered, by presenting the wolf's or fox's pelt, with the upper jaw thereunto attached, as specified in the first section of this Ordinance, to any magistrate, who is hereby authorized to question any person making such claim, and if the magistrate is not satisfied with the answer of the claimant, he may put him on his oath or affirmation; and when satisfied of the justice of any claim, said magistrate shall issue his certificate of the fact, making a record of the same on his docket; and such certificate shall be receivable by the Assessor and Collector of taxes, for the amount therein specified. Sec. 3. If any person shall kill a wolf or fox puppy and present the pelt and upper jaw thereof, in like manner as prescribed in the first and second sections of this Ordinance, for the presentation of wolf or fox pelts, for bounty, the person so applying shall, in like manner, be entitled to a bounty of fifty cents, for each pelt and jaw so presented, without reference to large or small kind, and the magistrate shall issue his certificate accordingly. Sec. 4. It shall be the duty of each and every magistrate, on the issue of every certificate of bounty, for wolf, fox, or puppy pelts and jaws, to see that said person receiving said certificate, forthwith remove said jaw or jaws, from said pelt or pelts, and burn the jaw or jaws in his presence. Sec. 5. If any person shall make application to any magistrate for bounty, contrary to the provisions and designs of this Ordinance, or shall deceive, or attempt to deceive said magistrate concerning the facts in the case, and it shall appear evident to said magistrate that the person so applying has deceived, or attempted to deceive concerning his claim, or has sworn or affirmed falsely, for such deception, or attempted deception; said magistrate shall forthwith levy such fine as justice shall, in his opinion, demand; said fine to be collected off the property of the person making the application, and paid into the public Treasury; and if said deception or attempted deception shall arise through false swearing or affirming, the person, so deceiving or attempting to deceive, shall be further and otherwise punished for perjury, at the discretion of the Court having jurisdiction, or as the law shall direct. Sec. 6. It shall be the duty of every magistrate on issuing a certificate for bounty, to number the same, and each succeeding certificate, and report the number of certificates by him issued, with the amount of each, to the Assessor and Collector of taxes, on the first day of January, April, July, and October annually.
