TITE MEMPHIS APPEAL: SUNDAY, MAHCTI 31. 1889.
A SENSIBLE BDQQKSTION.
Are the City Father Wise Enough to
Follow Out the Idea?
To the Editor of The Appeal:
The Taxing District authorities of 8helby
County hauled and damped into the river in
front of the city last yoar :t!t,417 cart loads,
Which represents about 2,KXi car loads, of
Street sweepings, etc. The; sweepings are
recognised by intelligent farmers to bo the
finest fertilizer Hint could be applied totheir
poor and worn out lauds, and this vast
amount does not represent one half of the
recklc'g and unnecessary waste of manure
that Is annually dumped into the river. All
know the city garbage carts only take ofTthc
accumulations of the street, while citizens
an- required to keep their premises, cow
sheds and horse stable cleaned at private
expense. Now is it to be wondered at thai
the farms and gardens which have supplied
liie inhabitants of the city for llu past flit
years with bread, meat, vegetables and fruits
should be gradually losing their fertility and
beeoeitng unattractive, not only bo out ovrs
citizens, but to persons from other seel ions
who doom among us in search of homes?
By icfcrencc to the sulrs of the Clerk and
Master of the Chancery Court forth" mouth
of January and February last, it will be seen
that cleared land containing house and
fences within ten mile of Memphis have
sold at public outcry In front of the Court
House for Ions than three dollars per sere.
Nut one or two lit lie lot but hundreds of
acres, and farming land around Memphis
can he pun has d today for less money than
any other city in the government, for the
reason that crop have been hauled into the
city year after year ami consumed, and i veto
incut, instead of being returned to the hinds,
has always btssn iumM'd into the river ami
wasted The farm sitd gardens in three or
four miles ol the city can be and are kept up
by hauling manure In vuipuia, cart, etc.,
bill beyond that diMaiiee. where only one
load a daV can lie luiuled by u team, it is
found to DC too costly, and the authorities
ought to. Instead of holding on to privilege
anil continuing to dump It into the river, as
in the past, turn It over to some responsible
snd energetic man who would make con
trai ls ilh the various railroads and have
It di-irihnteii throughout West Tennessee
and ..rlh Mississippi.
The hsuling of 4.1SJ0 or .1.000 carloads an
nually would add to lbs revenue of the
various railroad and ouii kcn into new life
a many an m r" of the old Mr lands in the
Vicinity of the city, and the farmer would
soon become happy and contented to live
here Instead of l onllnually Irving, as now,
tn sell out snd go to the newer lands of Ai
kansss and Texas. Then, when the contract
are made with the railroad snd the farmers
inade to understand that it is in their pOWVff
to resuscitate their old worn isnda at
reasonable outlay uf money; In other words,
When the business la procrly organised,
contractors will come up and twr lliiuianinla
of dollar for the privilege nl draining the
slrt-els and keeping the I'ily In a good sani
tary condition and we'll lad that the garbage
would pay a revenue into the treasury in
stead uf costinz the tax pavers fit, 240 to
throw H into the rim and wasle il, lis they
did last year.
If Hie city fathers really want to see Mem
phi grow and proer let them not forget
tin surrounding country that feed them.
