LICENSES AND CIVIL RIGHTS.
The blU "To secure to all the people of
Charleston the enjoyment of their vested
rights, to amend an ordinance entitled -An
ordinance to regulate* licenses,' and tor other
purposes," was called up for a second reading
This bill provides that "any person or per?
sons applying for a license to carry on business
in the city, shall receive the same only on con?
dition that he or they will not, in conducting
such business, make any discrimination be?
tween persons on account of race or color;
and that all persons having licenses already
obtained shall be allowed fifteen days from the
passage of the ordinance to return their li?
cense, and receive from the treasurer au
amount to correspond to the unexpired time
of the license; and that all persons not so re?
turning their licenses within the fifteen days
allowed, shall be taken to have agreed to the
conditions and provisions of the ordinance,
and shall be held liable for its requirements
Alderman Voigt was of the opinion that the
bili would work mischief; that thc laws of the
United States and of the State ot South Caro?
lina covered the whole ground, and that the
bill was altogether unnecessary, and, there?
fore, moved that further consideration ol it be
Alderman E. P. Wall, the father of the bill,
was of the opinion that lt was necessary to
prevent a discrimination between white and
colored persons being made by those carrying
on business in thc city, and for that reason
hod offered the bill. 1
Alderman Geddings said he looked upon the
biU as altogether unnecessary, and rather
foolish than otherwise.
Alderman Hampton called for the yeas and
nays, and all with the exception o? Aldermen
Geddings and Voigt voted ''yea," and the bill
was passed through its second reading.
Alderman Voigt wanted to make an expla?
nation concerning his vote, lo which Alderman
Hampton objected, saying no explanation
would be satisfactory to him.
Alderman Voigt wanted his objections pub?
Alderman Collins objected to this being
done, because they were not Alderman Volgt's
"real opinion, but borrowed objections."
The bul then received Its third reading, and
its title was changed to that of an ordinance,
and ordered for ratification at the next meet?
An attempt was made to "gag" Alderman
Voigt, but the Mayor ruled that he had a right
to state his objecth -'s.
Alderman Coll'P' thought that both Alder?
men Geddings and Voigt were non-Republi?
cans, and desired io dodge the question.
In response to a question from Alderman
Greene, whether Alderman Voigt thought this
bill was in violation of tiie lundauiontal laws of
the land, Alderman Voigt responded in the
Alter much discussion, thc question wheth?
er or not Alderman Voigt should be allowed
to have his objections published was put, and
it was decided that he should be so allowed.
Alderman Holloway offered a bill to repeal an
ordinance "to prevent the erection of wooden
buildings, and to provide greater security
against fires." It received a first reading by
title and was ordered' to be printed.
Alderman Collins said that every citizen ar?
rested and carried to thc guardhouse was sub?
jected to the d?gradation ol being weighed,
measured and searched, which was a relic 0
old slave times, and offered a resolution pro
viding that such treatment be not hereafter
allowed in cases of persons charged with vio?
lating city ordinances, unless such persons be
charged with a criminal offence beyond the
Jurisdiction of the police court.
Aller some discussion whether or not such
treatment was a "relic of slave rule," some as?
serting that it was and others tho contrary,
Alderman Voigt showed that it was necessary
to search, the prisoc-rs, and moved that the
weighing and measuring of the prisoners be
Alderman Hampto# spoke warmly in favor
of the resolution, and was of the opinion that
no man had a right to search his pockets.
Alderman Collins said that frequently when
a man was arrested and had no money, or a
watch, he was let out, after two or three hours
confinement; but if the prisoner possessed
money or a watch he was held, as thc police?
men knew that these things could be held
until the fine to be imposed in the morning
would be paid, of which the arresting officer
Tlie Mayor said that the statement of Alder?
man Collins was not altogether correct, as he
frequently had prisoners before him who had
not money or watches upon their persons.
Further discussion ensued, which was finally
ended by the adoption of the resolution.
Alderman Collins offered the following pre?
amble and resolutions:
Wiereas, The validity of a large portion of
the city debt is being questioned In the public
prints of the city, and whereas it is erroneously
mooted by many of the political opponents o?
this administration that a majority of this
Council, would, if possible, even repudiate the
entire debt; be lt, therefore,
Resolved, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the
City of Charleston in Council assembled, In
looking forward to the adoption of some syste?
matic plan for the payment or adjustment ol
the said debt, it is desirable that this Council
should have a correct knowledge of its legal
status. It is therefore further
Resolved, That the Hon. D. T. Corbin, City
Attorney, be and he is hereby requested, to
furnish this Council, as soon as possible, with
his official opinion in writing, as to the legality
and validity of the whole1 city debt, and par?
ticularly of that portion created by or through
subscriptions by the city In aid ol' railroad en?
Alderman Cunningham moved its adoption.
Aldermen E. P. Wall and Voigt objected to
Further discussion followed, during which
Alderman Collins stated that the City Attor?
ney's opinion was already written, and it was
at his request that the resolution was pre?
During a wrangle about the resolution, a mo?
tion to adjourn was made and carried, and
Council at ll o'clock adjourned.

THE CITY DEBT QUESTION.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
If any value is to be attached to judicial de?
cisions, the subscription to the Blue Ridge
Railroad, having been sustained against three
attempts to invalidate it, is one of the most
sacred obligations resting upon the city. Any
attempt now to repudiate lt can have no effect
but to Injure even the very interests which the
repudiators desire to assist, by producing a
general teeling of doubt and uncertainty con?
nected with all the affairs of the city.
Many are offended because a large amount
of this debt is now held by persons who bought
it at $30. This could never have happened had
not a doubt of the good faith of the city open?
ed the door to stock-jobbers.
Our stocks were formerly singularly free
from this kind of speculation. They were
never quoted in Wall street, but owned at
home, where they were considered safe, if not
profitable, investments. When in 18G6 the city
resumed the payment of interest, the stock in?
stantly rose to a price considerably beyond Its
money value, because the old confidence had
returned. In 1868 the suspension commenced
again. Tenderness towards taxpayers did
them no good, and did unspeakable evil to
those who had Invested their all in the faith of
the city; and now the stock-jobbers come on
to speculato upon the wants of the suffering
an d the faith of the city. I never heard a mur?
mur from the sufferers. They hoped, even
when hope seemed a mockery, for they could
not believe that all sense of honesty and good
faith had departed from among us. They ac?
cepted it as a part of thc general calamity
which had come over the city; but they never
dreamed that it would be solemnly proposed
that their properly should be destroyed in or?
der that the owners of palatial mansions might
be spared some taxation.
Would repudiation relieve the city from any
of its burdens ? I doubt it. Alter the perpe?
tration of a fraud so monstrous, can any one
doubt but that reckless extravagance would be
the order of the day-that the money which
should go to the honest creditor will be lavish?
ed upon the greedy speculator and political
jobber ? The only prosperous men are those
who pay their debts, who conscientiously re?
cognize their plighted faith even when they
have made bad bargains. If this debt is to
weigh down the city, depend upon lt it cannot
rise even if you shake it off. Thc very act of
shaking it off is au act of despair. It will be
.-mch a confession ot weakness that no capital '
will dare venture here. The very agitation of
the question of repudiation lias already not
only affected the price of city stock, but even
the value of real estate. It must needs be so.
You cannot partially injure a town. Aim a
blow at its credit, and you Injure the property
on which its credit is founded. The very action
of the agitators ls a public declaration that
their property is worthless. If they would re?
store Its action, let them act honestly; prosper?
ity will come with JUSTICE.
