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 burdened people. Since the above was in type Col. J. R. Branham has furnished us with the following abstract of this important de- cision ; In the Bond Case the Supreme Court held, 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 voters. 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. THE I*RE!*IDENT’S MESSAGE. Through courtesy of the Atlanta Con stitution, we are enabled to give our readers the President’s message in full this morning. - Grant says nothing about the Civil Rights Bill in his message. Opinions are various as to whether it will be brought forward and urged on to its pas sage by the party before they loose the power to pass it. th Georgia M. E. Conference.
