58-308. Improvements — Filing of receipt for payment — Mistake and fraud. Should anyone apply to lease any of the lands belonging to the state upon which there are improvements belonging to another party, before the lease shall issue, he shall file in the office of the state board of land commissioners a receipt showing that the price of said improvements, as agreed upon by the parties, or fixed by the state board, has been paid to the owner thereof in full, or shall make satisfactory proof that he has tendered to such owner the price of said improvements, so agreed upon, or fixed by the board. If, by any mistake or error, any money has been, or shall hereafter be, paid on account of any sale or lease of state lands, or if any land or timber shall have been, or shall hereafter be sold by the state, or lease executed, which land or timber shall have been, or shall hereafter be, by a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction, adjudged to belong to another than the state of Idaho, at the date of such sale or the execution of such lease, a claim shall be presented to the state board of examiners, and, if authorized by them, the state controller shall draw a warrant in favor of the party paying said money, and the state treasurer shall pay the same out of the fund into which such money was deposited or placed. If through any fraud, deceit or misrepresentation, any party or parties shall procure the issuing of any lease for state lands the board shall have the authority to cancel such lease.
