Tha Tax Coaaaalealr'a Latter OmU- araA aa U tat Hata.ro f BlaJt Since the publication of the letter from the tax commissioner of the Memphis route last week with refer ence to old city bonds, which created no little excitement, an Investigation into their possible validity has been Instituted, and everything which we have been able to learn points to the probable fact that those bonds are not worth the paper they were printed on. They were Issued in 1870 to run twen ty years, but It is extremely doubtful if the city bad the semblance of a right to Issue tbt amount of bonds. A levy of $4 on the hundred vu made to pay the first year's interest and a part of this enormous tax was paid in 1871. Br ft decision rendered by Jndge Webb in the district court the tax was ordered to be paid back and 80 per cent of the amounts were paid back to the people. The bonds were never registered in the office of the county clerk or auditor of state ac cording to law, ftnd the old settlers here are universal in the opinion that the railroad company can never legal ly collect s cent on them, but have simply held them and do now hold them as a menace or cudgel over this city. Steps win be taken at once to have them pnt ootof existence. The publication of the letter was perhaps a great blunder on our part, but as It was brought and handed to us by Mr. Crowell with the suggestion that it be published, and as we consid ered our Interest in the matter very much Inferior to bis, we published it. We believe, however, that when the thing is sifted down it will bo found that the bonds are entirely worthless, as the railroad company have received no interest on them and have appar ently considered them of no value for many years.
