Digest of the Acts Repealing the Charters of Certain Municipal Corporations the Proclamation of the Governor Thereon; The Acts Establishing Taxing Districts free pdf Excerpt from Digest of the Acts Repealing the Charters of Certain Municipal Corporations the Proclamation of the Governor Thereon- The Acts Establishing Taxing Districts: And the Ordinances of the Taxing District of Shelby County, Tennessee- Together With an Appendix, Containing the Decision of the Supreme Court, Settling the Constitutionality of These Acts- And, Also, the by-Laws for the Government of the Legislative Coun It may not be inappropriate, as introductory to this Digest, to state some of the causes that gave birth to that government whose laws and ordinances it contains. After the scourge of 1878 had done its work of death, those who survived found many deserted hearth-stones and desolate homes. Pestilence, more pitiless than war, had robbed Memphis of thousands of her truest and most enterprising citizens, and millions of money, in paralyzed industry and diminished values- and the future, which once promised so fair, was beclouded with doubt and fear. For interest on debts made no pause, though the "pestilence walked in darkness," and taxation in the devoted city vastly increased on greatly diminished resources- and our accumulated misfortunes did not appease the thirst for payment of a vast and insupportable debt. Friend met friend, and, as they looked each other in the face and remembered the past, wept for themselves and for their beloved city. What was to be done? Memphis had tried to settle her debt, and failed. Where the fault lay, it is not necessary to inquire. The fact is, the attempt failed. Besides, profoundly grateful for the beneficent charity that poured in upon her from the civilized world with unabated benefaction, through the yellow fever, it was felt that something ought to be done in the way of thorough sanitation, in order that the plague never return- and that it was essential to the life of trade that our dilapidated streets be repaired and paved. Added to all this was the realization of the fact that municipal governments in the United States were a failure. It is a curious, not to say sad reflection, that so enlightened and progressive a people as ours should have so lamentably failed in their management of municipal affairs. So it was, these accumulated ills brought Memphis to the verge of destruction and despair, and these weighty considerations moved her to seek relief. It was a question of life or death.
