The wo k of these boards may bs
raid to be twofold. A constant
and daily work may he summed
ip in the exprestkn "abatement of
1 uisances." 'ihia is the application of
Bute or city law to the dtatinttirn of
buildings un tit f r habitation; to the
Dievention of filthy p em s'R, etc., as
btiag iojuriona to health. It is aston
ishing, Ibe speaker said, how much
good i at been done in New Yoik and
in a'l our rmaller towns by
the rigid enforcement of ltw m
thece puiute. Xne comfoit and
weil being of toe great nias
of puDple has tetn protected against
the greed tf nnrcrupulons wealth.
The other great p'ovince of boards of
baltb is to ward off epidemics, cr
tni. in cas they do visit ns, so to
take rare 1 f the sick as t prevei.t the

The following is a synopsis tf tbe
learcci gentleman's remtrks: The
it crease rf bosks baa made reading
more usual. It is neceesai y, there
fore, Io carefully choose those books
which ir i meat beneficial. It is im
poesib'e to separate the moral and in
tellectual effect tf reading. Reading
ia for twoobjecta:
1. For instruction. In booka of
even this character evil influ'iices
mar exist, e. g, Gibbon, Utetbe,
while tbey may instruct, may blunt
the moral sensibilities.
In books of this character greater
cam and motion should be eserciaed.
since tbe mind and m ra! nature is
nneuarded. and apt to receive it' jury
And this without referring to those
h'-okscf amnsement untch are con
I Hiedlv evil in their tendencies. The
modem novel, in its pU' pr si of tf ach
Ino' anmn ffa. mirfl truth, is nn
doabtedly benefic al. But if i's final
aim and pnrpote is etil, its capacity
(nr ininrv ia nnbonndei.
It nuy be generally stated that the
novel real by the community to-day
is deleterious in ite itfluence, because
tftndins to oblitnrate distinctions be
tween right and wrong. The tendeccy
seems to be to excite sympairy tor
Innt til v for nnhannilv married men
mr.ii wrmen who foreet matiimonial
obligations. Lore is not treated in its
proper light, bat is disp'ayed in dis
torted and almost dishonorable shape.
The sound morality which should
underlie sncb feelinta ii w t olly want
ing. Much of the scandal of modern
society takes iU rise from the plo's of
vicious novels. Nor can tbe final
denouement be mnolded to form a
complete novel. But these trat'B are
confine! t novelists of the second
clasa. The vicious cbaractt r.t of Dick
ens and Thackeray, tco't, and of the
Bible are painted in such colors as to
cause an aversion of them, not in the
light of a'traction or nfg five repul
sion, as in the modern novel. Wbaf,
then, should we rial? It has been
id that fiction a tbe confw tioneiy
of literature, and should not thertioie
be indulged ex-ept occasionally. Cer
tainly those antora only eboo'.d be
rfid whose merits are teoocn 1 wt, not
'hose books which are questionable in
morality. Whatever bo ks are read
our moral senses shonld heal wive on
suard, for even In the bet t evil ir flu

Mr. Eiias L'jwemtiin wai unanimous
ly called for and took the chair. Tbe

were t tTcred by Mr. J. M. 8emmea:
V ii irs-aii, We, tbe members cf the
Merchants' Exchange of Memphis,
Ttnu., desiring to fojUr, encourage
and protect the commerce of oar city,
and wishing to faeiht,ts butioets rela
tions with the oritti le world and not
hamper them with tirjust and obso
lete discriminations, do earnestly pro
teit agalmt the "pivilege tax" now
imposed in Memptiia npon traveling
salesmen who vis t our city in the le
gitimate pursuit of trade; therefore,
AVWivif. That the tax on bona Ii le
traveling men, which Ihe city ol Mem
phis is now collecting from them by
power of an act of tbe Legislature of the
Stfit of Tennessee, is an unwise, unjust
nd an uncommercial discrimination,
and, in our opinion, is a lestrietion upon
interstate commerce, and therefore in
violation if the constitution cf this
Koulvrd, J hat a committee of time,
to b i selected by cur president. In ap
pom'ed to call upon the Legislative
Council of theTaxirg Pistrut of Shel
by county and petition it to at once
dtttut from collecting said privilege
tax, and thus throw open wide our
city's ga'p. so the commercial men of
all the world can come to ua without
the fear of a "drummer' detective"
dogging their heals to make them pay
tiibute to the city treasury or go to
folttd, That the ngent of any non
resident firm, or any meiuker ol same,
who regularly opens an cilice or sam
ple room in thia city for the put pose
of soliciting trade from and selling
goods to country merchants is, in our
opinion, not a broker, but ia bona
fide merchant, who, by each action, ii
endeavoring to reap without tort a
harvest that we, with many yeara of
toil aad large outlay of capital, bave
sown; such ihoul 1 be assessed a capi
tal and p ivilege tax of ret less than
$.")00 per annum or (100 per week, and
bave therefor nil tbe rlgnl and priv
ileges granted any other wholesale
merchant in Memphis.
Ketolvrd, That our secretary be in
structed to write iininedittely to Sena
tor Harris Aid Representative lay lor
at Washington, 1 C, and request
them to cist tbeir vitea and use tneir
influence to p; st at once a bill through
Congress to prohibit the tsxation of
traveling salesmen who represent

where in the Unit id States.
Upon motion of Mr. Letting, the
