WATER FAMINE TR051ISFD
CSLESS IR0XPT AND DECISIVE
MEASURES ARE TAKEN.
CapU Lee Demaads the Pound of
Flesh and President Latham Ap
peals for Hercj.
A special meeting ot the City Coun
cil was held yesterday evening to con
sider the water question. President
Hadden presided and Messrs. Le,
Band, kney and Wallace were'pres
ent President Bullock of the Citi
zens' Water Company, who hid asked
for the meeting, promised to be pres
ent, did not appear, except by his at
torneys. Hill and Wilkerson.
President iiadden opened tne can
with a statement of the relations of
tbe Council to tbe Committee of Ten
and of both to tbe citizens of Mem
phis, lie said the committee was ap
pointed in atcordance with a popular
dsmand for action of some kind, that
tbe gentleman composing it bad
labored earnestly and intelligently for
a year and were nearly ready to re
port, lney naa conic ea aca toiiaiea
much valuable information, which
would be of inestimable advantage to
the Council in determining upon
the proper course to pursue.
For one, he was in favor of adopting
the renort of the Council. After that
was done legislation must be had, aa
it was a foregone conclusion mat tne
city should own its works. The neces
sary laws passed, it would be no trou
ble to placa the bonds, and if the city
could not find a cnt ai tor to do tbe
work at a reasonable fiure the city
would undertake it with hirsd labor,
and have it done under the tupervp
mb. bullock's attorneys.
Mr. Wilkerson read a c'aire of tho
charter of tbe Citizens' Water Com
pany which is in the language of the
general law, providing that upon ap
plication to the authorities the City
Council shall appoint a committee of
seven, three to be doctors, to report
upon a source 01 supply, ana tneir ac
tion shall be binding. His company
made such a demand.
Mr. Hill said that while the Commit
tee of Ten were all honorable gentle
men, they were not appointed under
tbe law ana were not requirea 10
make a sworn statement aa it required.
He went on to say that while Mr. Bul
lock preferred the Mi nissippi river,
hnwas willing to go to Wolf or any
where else, and that all;he wanted was
an opportunity to bid on the work. He
was engaged in building works all
over tbe United States and could do
it $100,000 cheaper than anyone else.
-Mr. Hadden replied that Mr. Bul
lock and Mr. Smith and Mr. Robinson
would all be allowed to bid when the
citv was ready to have the work done,
but that would not be for some months
The following resolution, offered by
Capt Lee, was then adopted:
must mr rr GOING.
Tbe consideration by this Goancil
of measures for the permanent supply
of pur and wholesome water for the
city, and the extensive works neces
sary to accomplish the end in view
involves a delav of one or more years,
while in the meantime the people of
the Taxing District are suffering great
inconvelnence and annoyance and are
subjected to the dingers inseparable
from a wholly inadequate supply of
snch water as the present company is
rf quired to afford. The provisions of
the law granting tbe franchises to the
Memphis Water Company, and the
contract that it has entered into with
our citizens in every case where it
has received payment of their water
rates, demand imperatively that that
company should promptly and faith
fully, without looking for aid from
any other source, discharge its public
and private obligations.
In view of these facta this Council
gives the people of Memphis, and the
gentlemen owning the Memphis Water
Company, distinctly to unders'and
that while they deliberate upon the
question of providing a pernjanent
supply of giod water in the fu'ur,
thty are not unmindful of their duty
an nnhlic servants to see to it that the
comfort and health of the people of
Memphis are not stenhced ar:u 111
ripril. .1 hv the consenuences of an in-
adfqnate supply for the present and
in ttie ner future The municipal
authorilits and the people for the
present, at least, can look only to the
Memphis Water Company for their
Eource of supply. It has assumed the
duty and rtspors bility of affording
the supply, and it must fulfill its obli
c-.tion. Without committing ourselves
in any manner, or intending to in-
timats what ourje this Uouacil may
rif-ri-ue in reference to plans lor a fu
furs nermaoent supp'y of good water,
it admonishes the Memphis Water
Company that it cannot evade its
duty, or throw its responsibility to
furnish an adequate supply of water
for tbe preterit on otiier snouiders.
For some time past, at least.the sup
nlv of water baa bten wholly in
aiipnnate. and complaints from all
quaitt-rs are made hj our people of
tne gross arid persistent failure of the
company to discharge its duty in the
premises, wnue serious apprenensions
of sickness and pestilence are felt.
Under tbe e'reamstauces this Uouncll,
as the gnardian -of the public interest,
call upon tbe Mempnis water uorrv
nunv to proceed at once, at any eacri
flee, to fulfill their obligations to the
people, and une this e done
promtly measur.es must be considered
by the authorities and the people, in
public council, to rearees uieee gritv
JUDOS LATHAM SBABD.
Jutga T. 3- atham, President of
the Memphis Water Work, was given
permission to speak, and made a clear
and forcible exposition of his side of
the question. lie did not be ieve that
tbe Council would be so unjust to him
as to insiet upon the pound of rl-ett
because it bad been nominated in tbe
bond. " We were to' cod," he aa'd, "to
fign a contract in 1882 to supply tbe
city wita won nver water lor sm n
yjars. Weplesdedforafive.eight, ten
or twelve year contract, but you woald
bear cf notning lees tban six
teen. For a yoar or two pist
I hive been given to unders'and
that the city would he likely to witti
draw at any time. I am told fiat '.
nonet carry oat my prt cf it, but you
wi.l do as you please and I must take
the consequences. Assnre me that
you will adbeie to your contract and I
will make the necessaiy improvement!
as last s money will do it assure me
that I shall not be disturbed for five
years and I will doit. Tear up the
present contract and make a new one
on any reasonooie terms tornve years.
Buy my plant outright at a reasonable
fiiiitre or indemnify me for tbe $-0'J.-
IJ00 it will be necessary to expend, and
the city shall nave ail tne water it de
sires. Surely you do not mean to lav
to me that tbe Water Company has
no rights which a gentleman is bound
to respect, that you will insist that ws
hall give you all the water In quaHty
and quantity yon desire, no matter at
what expense, and that ia one or two
years you will build works of your
own and leave me to sell my plint aa
so much old iron ? When the last
contract was made with us the city
was still struggling tn tne throes of
debt,,snd Wolf rirer water was good
enough. Now the prospoct is btuht
and you insist upon better and pur-r
wator. You are ngni. 1 am wun
you. I will aid you all I can. I am
willing to do anything in rea-on. My
donre is to turn my enure piant over
to vou at once, but 1 am iiii'ced ti
admit that I th nk a wiser plan might
be pursued. A gree to purchase at a
given figure, or at a figure to be fixed
by a board ot arDiiranon wneu your
works are built and the needed im
provements shall be made im
mediately." President uaduen repueu mat an
the pipes now belonging to tbe com
pany and all it could imild in the
next two years would come in handily
as a part of tbe new system when the
new works were built. Ho diln't
know about a guarantee, but he
thought there would bo no risk incur
red in making the improvement.
A good dsal more was said on one
side and the other, President Lsthaui'd
argument having made a visiriie lm
nreeRion. The meeting hdiiurned

tbe committee, unable to decide,

tract to Waiker, whose b'd was lowest,
and lie was so notified. Ho was ques
tioned about his bond, uml a u Mr.
Milburn would go on It. When he
came to the p neb, however, Mr. Mil
bnrj, who appears to have been the
power behind Walker, f .un i ibere
was no money in it at Wit ktr a bid
(121,000), and decHitfd posi

was called. Mr. Walker was not pres

from him stating that hla family was
sick and asking more time. The com
mittee declined to bs annoyed with
him any longer and put his bid aside.
II. Brawner, of Chicago, whose bid

had said to members of the committee,
to engineers and to numerous others
that lie had decided not to do it

considered. Mr. Noshltt was proient
with his bid of $24.1)60, and it was ac
cepted, lie was ready to go to work
yesterday morning, but the injunction
prevented. Mr. Ni-sbitt is leported as
saying he had received an intimation
Irom Mr, Bean, who was to get tbe
contract for th substructure from
Walker for f 1000. that if he (Neabitt)
would make a similar contract with
him (Bean) the Injunction would be
withdrawn; and a member of thecam
m ttee a'so received an intimation that
the payments of a few hundreds "to
cover expenres" would remove a'l ob

roniHios to be seen whether or not the
