The People against the City of Co
Last Friday and Saturday Judge
Mankey heard in Chambers in Co,
lunbia a petition brought by E. J.
Scott E'rj., in behalf of the taxpayers
against the citycouncil of Columbia,
for an injunction to provent the
connoil from increasing the indobt
odness of the city. The complaint
shows that on the 13u.h of Marcha
1872 an act was' passed authorizinag
the eity coenoil to issue bonds from
time to timuoto an anmount not Gx.
eceeding $600,000, "it being thereby
intended that the whole Indebted..
nle s thereof, whether by bonds or
otherwise shall be at nuo time in.
oroased beyond the said suin of
$60)0,000." That at a meeting of
citiaens on the 30th November 187.1
a cotomittce was apapointed to ex
amine into the affairs of the city
concil, that by them a sub--commrit
tee wvere appointed who had access
to the books; but that those books
were~sQ badly ken& t~hbst nothing
oould be learned from them.

the onnoU 'for. an oexhibt iin
financial condition of Columbitth4t
a' promise .or suoh exhibit was
promised but that though several
months have einpsed, no suobch xe
hibit has been made. That thec
books and records in possession of the
sidi 'council show that since March
1872 the debt has been largely in,,
orS~sod that it har reached the limit
prescribed in February l1874 and
that on the 30th of A pr il 1874 had
reached the sum of $6l,000, and
that on let August 1875 it reached
the sum of $700,000.
*That there are $42,000 of jr~dgments
against the city and the t reasury 4s
empty, and that for these debts ex
ceeding the limit, cortilicates of in.
debtednsess are continually issuing,
receivabl as taxoa, thins antioipating
the revenne of nexit year.
That the law providies, in easoe
limit Is passed that any bondholdlor,
or tax-payer of the city can enjoin
the councll (romn *sburring furthei
Wherefore the plaintiff demandu
that an inquiry be made into the
affaire of the city and that the conncil
be enjoined from dhelaying the exhibji
demanded, that the debts in excess
of the limit be declared invalid and
that the council be perpetually en.
joined from paying the same or any
part thereof, and also from ineurring
