THE BOMB CITY BONDS.
The refusal of the Supreme Court of
the State to grant the injunction prayed
for against the payment by the City
Council of the interest on the bonds is
sued to the Memphis Branch and North
& South Railroads, Water Works, etc.,
does not, we are assured, dispose of the
matter. The real merits of the case
were not heard by that Court. The in
junction only asked that the authorities
be restrained from paying the interest
until the case could be regularly heard in
the Superior Court before a jury. So
our citizens need not be unnaturally ex
cited by the failure to receive the relief
prayed for. Even should the holders of
overdue coupons avail themselves of their
legal remedy and commence suits at once,
they cannot reach a judgment before the
hearing of the “bond case” before a jury.
Just at this juncture of our city affairs,
when anew Council, elected by the peo
ple, with a view to a full, complete and
equitable adjustment of our debt, com
mence their term of service, all should
be united in a single effort to meet this
grave responsibility, and we feel assured
that these gentlemen, fully alive to the
necessities that surrouod them, will not
hesitate to take such steps, looking to a
just compromise of the matter, as will
meet the just expectations of the friends
of the city and the bondholders.
We had hoped to receive the decision
of the Supreme Court in full, yesterday,
but were disappointed, therefore we are
unable to give such information as we
intended, in reference to it. The above,
however, in brief, is the status of the case,
and while it seems that the people have
been sadly disappointed in not receiving
such relief as the equities of the case
seemed to justify them in anticipating,
yet we feel assured that the matter will
be met and adjusted, at an early day, so
as to give some relief, at least, to our tax
Since the above was in type Col. J. R.
Branham has furnished us with the
following abstract of this important de-
In the Bond Case the Supreme Court
Ist. That the city had authority to is
sue the Fire Bonds under the 13th sec
tion of the old city charter, ibis Sec
tion gives the city power to make all
contracts that it may deem necessary for
the welfare of the city.
2nd, That the city had authority
to issue the 65,000 Curreucy Bonds
under this 13th Section. That the city
currency, though issued contrary to the
old Change Bill Statute, was neverthe
less a valid debt against the city under
that [statute. That they, like the fire
and Water Works bonds, were issued
for ordinary and local purposes, and that,
under the power to make contracts, their
redemption with the 65,000 of Bonds was
legal. Further, that the ratification of
them by the Legislature was legal.
3d, That the issue of Water Works
Bonds was authorized by the Water
Works Act of 1870, and also a part of
the plain bonds. That though a part of
the Water Works bonds were sold for
less than 90 cents, (13,000 of them,) the
balance were sold at 90 cents, and if
they had been sold for less they
were good in the hands of innocent
holders. And so were all the bonds, not
withstanding irregularities in the issue.
4th, That a majority voting at an
election is a majority of the qualified
sth, The Memphis Branch Act, under
which those bonds and the North & South
Bonds were issued Wus held constitution l '
al—having nothing different from the
caption of the Act and bat one subject mat
ter, to-wit: Supscription to Railroads.
There is now no injunction against the
levy of a tax for the payment of interest
on any of the bonds.
Banks, Cox, Keer and Wood are prom
inently spoken of for the Speakership ef
the 44th Congress.

Through courtesy of the Atlanta Con
stitution, we are enabled to give our

Grant says nothing about the Civil

brought forward and urged on to its pas
sage by the party before they loose the
