Transcript 35 be as valid and effective as if made by the owner thereof. Where the description of any property on the assessment sheets or tax rolls is vague and indefinite the city may show by evidence other than the assessments and tax rolls where the property is located, and on what property the tax is due, what parties own the property, and that the taxes on the same are due and unpaid and enforce and foreclose the tax lien on such property. The City Council may and shall have full power to provide, by ordinance, for the prompt collection of all taxes levied, assessed, and due or becoming due to said city, and to that end may and shall deem necessary to the levying, laying, imposing, assessing and collecting of any of said taxes, and to regulate the mode and manner of making out tax lists and inventories and the appraisements of property thereon, and to prescribe the oath that shall be administered to each person on such rendition of property, and to prescribe how and when property shall thus be rendered, and to fix the duties and de- lino (he powers of the Assessor and Collector of Taxes. All taxes due by property owners on any and all property from the year 1875 up to and including the year 1896, and for all years to come until otherwise provided by charter, as appears upon the tax rolls of said city, may be collected by suit from delinquents and foreclosure of the lien thereon in any court having jurisdiction of the same, and any person who shall purchase property encumbered with a lien for taxes shall be deemed as to such taxes a delinquent taxpayer, and such purchaser takes the property charged with the lien, and he can not interpose any defense which his vendor might not have interposed had he continued to be the owner. The tax levied by the"city is hereby declared to be a lien, charge and encumbrance on the property on which the tax is due, which lien, charge and encumbrance the city is entitled to enforce and foreclose in any court having jurisdiction of the same, and the lien, charge and encumbrance on the property in favor of the city for the amount of the taxes due on such property, is such as to give the State courts jurisdiction to enforce and foreclose said lien on the property on which the tax is due;
