STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 

Office of the Board of Railroad Commissioners, 

Raleigh, December 31, 1892. 

To His Excellency Thomas M. Holt, 

Governor of North Carolina. 

Sir: — We submit to your Excellency our second annual report.

IV REPORT CF NORTH CAROLINA 

The action of the Commission, as a Board of Appraisers, in assessing 
for taxation the branch roads of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad 
Company, has been approved by our Supreme Court in the case of 
Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company vs. B. I. Alsbrook, decided 
at February Term, 1892, and reported in the 110th Volume of the 
Supreme Court Reports, page 137. The plaintiff company has taken 
the case by writ of error to the Supreme Court of the United States, 
where it is now pending on appeal from the decision of our Court. The 
question to be decided is, whether two hundred and eighty-nine xVo 
miles of branch roads already completed and in operation by this com- 
pany are exempt from taxation. 

In our former report to your Excellency, with reference to the mode 
of assessing the property of the railroad companies, we used the follow- 
ing language: "The machinery for taxation, as prescribed in section 47 
of the Act constituting the Commission a Board of Appraisers, was 
drawn to meet the case of the North Carolina Railroad, and can be 
applied to no other, from the fact that, by its charter, its road-bed is 
exempt from taxation, and the capital stock bearing a market value, 
which is an exception to all other roads not claimed to be altogether 
free from taxation. By attempting to apply the method as indicated 
above, its impracticability will at once be discovered." 

We recommend that the law be so amended as to authorize the assess- 
ment to be made as in the case of private property, ascertaining the 
value from the earnings, as compared with the operating expenses, and 
taking into consideration the value of the franchise, as w T ell as all other 
conditions proper to be considered in arriving at the true value of 
property. 

The 45th section of the Act constituting the Railroad Commission a 
Board of Appraisers, provides: "That all machine and repair shops, 
general office buildings, store-houses, and also real and personal prop- 
erty, outside of said right-of-way and depot grounds as aforesaid, of and 
belonging to any such railroad and telegraph companies shall be listed 
for purposes of taxation by the principal officers or agents of such com- 
panies with the list-takers of the county where said real or personal 
property may be situated, in the manner provided by law for the list- 
ing and valuation of real and personal property," &c , &c. In order to 
secure uniformity in assessment, we recommend that the Act be so 
amended as to authorize the Commissioners to make the assessment of 
property off the right-of-way as well as on it, and to certify the same 
to the Chairman of the County Commissioners or the Mayor of each 
city or incorporated town w T here such property is situated, along with 



RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. V 

the apportionment that may be certified to each of these officers 
respectively, as is provided in the 47th section of the Act. 

The Act confers no authority upon the Commissioners to make any 
assessment of the property of steamboat companies. At the request of 
your Excellency, we have made an investigation and find that steam- 
boats, now plying within our waters, of the value of $290,000, pay no 
taxes. We believe that these companies ought to bear their just pro- 
portion of the public burdens, and we recommend that the Act be so 
amended as to authorize the Commissioners to assess them for taxation, 
as is provided in the case of railroad and canal companies. 

Questions have presented themselves as to the power of the Commis- 
sioners to enforce compliance with the rules, regulations and orders 
which they are required to make, by the 5th section of the Act con- 
stituting the Commission. These rules and regulations, as declared in 
the section referred to, are intended to fix reasonable rates and charges 
to prevent deception and unjust discrimination, and to facilitate com- 
merce by making joint through rates upon the railroads of the State. 
The 10th section of the Act makes provision for relief in behalf of any 
person or corporation injured by a violation of the rules and regula- 
tions prescribed by the Commissioners, requiring the wrong-doer to make 
such recompense as the Commissioners may direct, within thirty days, 
under the penalty therein prescribed. But the Act does not seem to 
authorize the Commissioners to enforce compliance with the orders 
which it requires them to make, except upon the complaint of an 
injured party. We recommend that the following words be added 
to the close of Section 5, viz. : " Any company refusing to comply with 
any rule, regulation or order of the said Commissioners, made in pursu- 
ance of this section, shall incur a penalty, to be fixed as provided in 
Section 20 of this Act"; and all penalties fixed by the Commission, in 
any case, shall be recovered as provided in Section 10 of this Act. 
Whenever action is instituted by the Commission against any company, 
the cause shall be entitled: " State of North Carolina, on the relation 
of the Railroad Commissioners against such company," and whenever 
such action is instituted upon the complaint of any injured person or 
corporation, the cause shall be entitled: "State of North Carolina, on 
the relation of the Railroad Commissioners, upon the complaint of such 
injured person or corporation against such company." 

Section 29 provides: "That from all decisions or determinations 
arising under the operation or enforcement of this Act, the part}' or 
corporation affected thereby shall be entitled to appeal therefrom as in 
other cases of appeal, where no appeal has heretofore been provided for, 



VI REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA 

as now provided by law." It does not sufficiently appear, from this 
provision, how the appeal shall be prosecuted. Section 7 regulates, with 
clearness, appeals from the action of the Commissioners in fixing rates. 
We suggest that the provision in Section 29 be so amended that the 
appeals therein mentioned may be regulated as provided in Section 7; 
so that the provision may read as follows: " That from all decisions or 
determinations arising under the operation or enforcement of this Act, 
the party or corporation affected thereby shall be entitled to appeal 
therefrom, as provided in Section 7 of this Act, and when no exception 
is made to the facts as found by the Commissioners, then the appeal shall 
be taken direct to the Supreme Court." We would also respectfully 
suggest that provision be made for the payment of costs in cases of 
appeal, where the costs shall be allowed by the Court against the State, 
as provided in Section 28 of the Act. 

The case of the Atlantic Express Company against the Wilmington 
and Weldon Railroad Company and the Richmond and Danville Rail- 
road Company was brought before the Commission, under the 4th and 
5th sections of the Act, from which it appeared that the defendant 
companies had granted to the Southern Express Company the exclu- 
sive privilege of doing an express business over their respective lines, 
and had refused to grant to the plaintiff company, upon its application 
therefor, equal facilities with those granted to the Southern Express 
Company. After finding the facts, to which no exception w T as taken by 
the parties, the Commission was of opinion that the defendant com- 
panies had given undue preference and advantage to the Southern 
Express Company, in violation of the said 4th section, and rendered 
judgment requiring the defendant companies to grant unto the plaintiff 
company equal rates and facilities for conducting a general express 
business over their respective roads within the limits of the State of 
North Carolina with those already granted to the Southern Express 
Company, or which they may hereafter grant to the Southern Express 
Company, or to any other person, firm or corporation to whom they 
may at any time grant the privilege of conducting a general express 
business within the limits of this State. This order, or rule, which ap- 
pears in our Report, 1891, page 641, was made under the 5th section of 
the Act, which requires the Commission to make such just and reason- 
able rates and regulations as may be necessary for preventing unjust 
discrimination, after the conclusion had been reached, from the facts 
found, that the defendants had violated the 4th section by giving undue 
preference and advantage to the Southern Express Company, and by 
unjustly discriminating against the plaintiff company. The case was 



RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. VII 

taken by appeal to the Superior Court of Wake County, in Term, dis- 
missed by the Judge presiding, and is now pending in the Supreme 
Court on appeal from his Honor's decision. The opinion of the Court, 
it is believed, will determine the powers and duties of the Commission 
under the 4th and 5th sections of the Act, in preventing unjust 
discriminations. 

Complaint was made in the case of Mayo against the Western Union 
Telegraph Company, that the defendant had been guilty of unreason- 
able delay in forwarding important pre-paid messages between the 
towns of Winston and Mt. Airy, and also between the towns of Mt. 
Airy and Henderson, to the injury of the complaining party. The de- 
fendant company demurred to the complaint, upon the ground that the 
Commission had no jurisdiction of the subject-matter, and that the 
complaint iailed to state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action. 
The demurrer was overruled, and the case taken by appeal to the 
Superior Court of Wake County, where the demurrer was sustained by 
the Judge presiding, and it is now pending in the Supreme Court on 
appeal from his Honor's decision. This case, w T hich appears in cur 
Report, 1892, presents the question whether the Commission can grant 
relief under the 10th* section of the Act to any person or corporation 
injured by unreasonable delay on the part of a telegraph company in 
forwarding or delivering messages, or in performing the duty which it 
owes to such peison or corporation. The facts and opinion of the 
Commission thereon fully appear in the report of the case. 

On the 18th of February, 1892, complaint was filed in the case of 
the State of North Carolina on the relation of the Railroad Commis- 
sioners, upon the complaint of Eugene Albea against the Western 
Union Telegraph Company, alleging a violation of the tariff rate pre- 
scribed by the Commission for the transmission of telegraphic messages, 
the said Albea complaining that the defendant had refused to trans- 
mit a message from Elizabeth City to Winston, although he had ten- 
dered the rate prescribed by the Commission, but had demanded a 
larger sum for said service. The defendant answered on the 17th of 
May following, denying that it was subject to the act creating the 
Commission ; alleging that it had violated no law of the State, nor any 
rule or regulation of the Commission, and that this matter being one 
of commerce between the States, the Commission had no jurisdiction 
thereof. After hearing testimony and finding the facts, the Commis- 
sion was of opinion that it was the duty of the defendant to transmit 
commercial messages from its offices at Elizabeth City, Edenton, and 
other points on the Norfolk and Southern Railroad, at the rate pre- 



VIII REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA 

scribed by the Commission, when tendered, to any point in North 
Carolina. It was so ordered, the order to take effect on and after the 
20th day of August, 1892, The defendant has taken this case by 
appeal to the Superior Court of Wake County, where it is now pend- 
ing. It presents the question whether telegraphic messages transmitted 
from and to points in North Carolina, but which traverse another State 
in their route, constitute commerce between the States, and thus are not 
subject to the rate prescribed by the Commission. This case will appear 
fully in our Report for 1892. 

We have called the attention of }^our Excellency more particularly 
to these cases, because we believe that each of them will be carefully 
reviewed by the Supreme Court, and that the opinions rendered therein 
will be of more value in suggesting any amendments to the Act that 
may be needed, than anything we can say. 

We call the attention of your Excellency, also, to the case of the 
State of North Carolina on the relation of the Railroad Commissioners, 
upon the complaint of citizens of Charlotte and Wilmington against 
the Carolina Central Railroad Company. The complaint was filed on 
the 5th day of July, 1892, alleging that the defendant company had 
changed its schedule of passenger trains between Wilmington and 
Charlotte, and had withdrawn one train from passenger service to 
the serious loss and inconvenience of the complainants, and asking 
that the schedule in effect prior to the change be continued, and that 
neither of the trains be withdrawn. After hearing testimony and 
finding the facts, the Commission was of opinion that the Act did not 
confer jurisdiction to fix a schedule for any common carrier, prescrib- 
ing the time of arrival and departure of its trains, or their number, to 
suit the convenience of those who may wish to travel over its line, but 
that the purpose of the Act was to afford relief to the traveling public 
by preventing unreasonable delay and inconvenience at connecting 
points on account of a failure to afford all reasonable, proper and equal 
facilities for speedy transit. It was adjudged that the relief asked 
ought not to be granted. No appeal was taken from this judgment. 
The case is fully set out in our report, and we have called attention to 
it because it presents our construction of the Act, especially the 24th 
section thereof, as to the powers and, duties of the Commission in fixing 
schedules. If we are mistaken in our construction of the Act, and it 
was the purpose of the Legislature to confer the larger power and duty 
to fix schedules in any case, then the legislative intent may be 
expressed by so amending the 24th section of the Act as to express 
such purpose. 



RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. IX 

All the decisions rendered since our last report, together with the 
orders and circulars issued, appear herewith, with a statement of the 
transactions of our office, including reports from the various railroad 
companies, under Act constituting the Railroad Commission a Board 
of Appraisers. 

These reports seem to meet the purposes of Section 1959 of The 
Code, requiring every railroad corporation to make annual reports to 
the Governor, setting forth the matters therein mentioned. We would 
respectfully suggest that the General Assembly consider the propriety 
of relieving these corporations of what appears now to be an unnecessary 
requirement: making a report jointly to the Governor, while they are 
required to perform the same service jointly through the Commission. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. W. WILSON, Chairman; 

T. W. MASON, 

E. C. BEDDINGFIELD, 

Commission ers. 



Since filing this report, the decision of the Supreme Court of the 
United States affirming the decision of our Supreme Court in the case 
of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad against B. I. Allsbrook has 
been rendered, in which the action of the Railroad Commission in 
assessing the branch roads of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad 
Company has been affirmed.

WILMINGTON AND WELDON RAILROAD COMPANY. 
HISTORY. 

The Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company was organized March 14, 1836, under the 
laws of North Carolina, Acts of General Assembly 1833-'35-'36 (amendatory Acts 1851-'2-'5-'67). 

January, 1833, chartered as Wilmington and Raleigh Railroad Company ; main line opened 
March 9, 1840. Name changed in February, 1855. 

Tarboro Branch opened in August, 1849, and Scotland Neck Branch October 1, 1882. 

Midland North Carolina Railroad was purchased in June, 1885. 

The Fayetteville Branch was completed and opened October 1, 1886. 

The Nashville Branch was opened in 1887. 

The Clinton Branch on April 1, 1887. 

Washington Branch was opened in 1892. 

This Corporation was chartered as the Wilmington and Raleigh Railroad, by the General 
Assembly of North Carolina, year 1833, for the purpose of effecting a communication by a rail- 
road from some point within the town of Wilmington, or immediate neighborhood of the said 
town, to the city of Raleigh, or in the immediate neighborhood of the said city. 

The charter was amended in 1835, so as to allow the Company to run its main road from some 
point within or near the town of Wilmington, to some point in the city of Raleigh, or in the 
immediate neighborhood thereof, or to some point at or near the river Roanoke, at the election 
of the Stockholders, with a view of connecting with the Petersburg and Norfolk Railroads.

PETERSBURG RAILROAD COMPANY. 



HISTOKY. 

The Petersburg Railroad Company was organized 1830, under laws of Virginia and North Car- 
olina. 

Original charter granted by Act of the General Assembly of the State of Virginia, passed Feb- 
ruary 10, 1830, and by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina at its session of 1830. 
Amendatory Acts were passed by the Legislature of Virginia as follows : 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833, 1834, 
1836, 1840 and 1843. 

The charter expired by limitation in 1891. A renewal of the same was granted by the Legisla- 
ture for two years, by Act ratified the 9th day of March, 1891. The Legislature refused to renew 
for a longer period than two years, because the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company 
claims exemption from taxation, not only for its main line, but for its branch roads as well, 
and had, in the meantime, become the owner by lease of the Petersburg Road. This right of 
exemption from taxation was not acquiesced in by the Legislature, and suits are now pending 
to subject the branch roads to taxation. In the meantime the Legislature, for these reasons, 
thought it wise to renew the charter for only a short period.

The Carolina Central Railroad Company was organized July 14, 1880, under laws of the State 
of North Carolina, under an Act to incorporate the Wilmington and Charlotte Railroad Com- 
pany (1855). an Act that the name of the Wilmington and Charlotte Railroad Company shall be 
altered and the same company shall be known and [styled the Wilmington, Charlotte and 
Rutherford Railroad Company, ratified February 14, 1885; an Act to incorporate the Carolina 
Central Railway Company ; December, 1873 ; and an »Act to perfect the organization of the 
Carolina Central Railroad Company, ratified January 18, 1881. 

The corporate powers of this Company are granted for ninety-nine years from the passage of

mington and Charlotte, by way of Lumberton, Rockingham and Wadesboro and Monroe, with 
a capital stock of $2,000,000, with the privilege of increasing the same to fl3,000,000. Its capital

Wilmington Railway Bridge is a link in main line between the termini of the Carolina Cen- 
tral Railroad. Wilmington being the Eastern terminus and Rutherfordton the Western ter- 
minus. The Wilmington Railway Bridge spans the Cape Fear River from Hilton to Meare's 
Bluff, Hilton being practically the line of the city limits, being just 1.10 miles from the depot 
of the Carolina Central Railroad, within the city limits, this depot being the terminus of the 
Carolina Central Railroad at Wilmington. Hence the distance from Wilmington to Ruther- 
fordton is 267 miles, but the Wilmington Railway Bridge intervening must be deducted, because 
the latter is a separate corporation from the Carolina Central Railroad, 2.40 miles. Total, 264.60.

DURHAM AND NORTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

The Durham and Northern Railway Company was organized August 29, 1887, under the laws 
of the State of North Carolina, Acts February 2, 1887. It is largely owned by the Raleigh and 
Gaston Railroad Company, and forms part of the Seaboard Air Dine System. The road was 
opened April 1, 1889. 

The purpose of this Company was to construct and operate a road between Durham and some 
point in Wake, Franklin or Vance counties, to be determined by the present directors, with the 
privilege of extending the road to tide-water or Roanoke river, and with power to build branch 
roads not exceeding 25 miles in length, and with authority to consolidate with other railroad 
companies incorporated under the laws of this or any other State.

BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



RALEIGH AND GASTON RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

The Raleigh and Gaston Railroad Company was organized in the year 1830, under the laws of 
North Carolina, Acts of December, 1835, and January 6, 1845. 

Reorganized September 11th, 1851. 

The road was opened from Raleigh to Gaston, in 1844, and extended to Weldon in 1852. The 
company owns a controlling interest in the Raleigh and Augusta Air-Line Railroad, and a large 
interest in the Durham and Northern Railroad, also the Carolina Central Railroad and the 
Georgia, Carolina and Northern Railroad. 

Charter expires ninety years from December, 1835. It was amended in 1839, '43, '45, '47, '49, '51, 
'52, '55, '61 ('06 ordinance of convention), '67. In 1871 the section requiring the officers to reside 
in North Carolina was repealed. 

This road has been declared by the courts to be exempt from taxation under its charter, except 
upon its shai'es of stock. It is the most important link in the Seaboard Air Line System, and 
was chartered by the General Assembly of 1835 for the purpose of effecting a communication by 
a railroad from some point in or near the city of Raleigh to the termination of the Greenville 
and Roanoke Railroad, at or near Gaston, on the Roanoke river, with a capital stock of $800,000.

*The item "Deductions for the Year" includes the sum of $31,155.48, that being this Com- 
pany's proportion, to-wit: One-half of the loss sustained to June 30, 1892, in operating the Geor- 
gia, Carolina and Northern Railway. This company being a co-lessee of the said company, 
which lease provides that sixty-five per cent, of the gross income of said Railway and prop- 
erty shall be retained to pay the cost of operation, but s'xty-five per cent, of the gross income 
of said Railway not being sufficient to pay the cost of operation up to June 30, 1892, this Com- 
pany was called upon to make up one-half of the deficit. An account of the Georgia, Carolina 
and Northern Railway is kept separate and distinct from the account of the lessees individu- 
ally, and nothing appears in the income account of this company concerning that Railway 
except a payment to make up a deficit as above, or a profit, should the cost of operation not 
amount to as much as sixty-five per cent, of the gross income.

*A colored brakeman was killed while riding on rear of engine tender, caused by engine 
backing into some flat cars which the brakeman had just put on siding and failed to properly 
fix the switch, which allowed the cars to come too near main line. A colored man was found 
dead near the track, supposed to have been drunk on the track and killed by an engine at night. 
Three freight brakemen each got a hand mashed while coupling cars ; no fault of company, as 
it is against the rules to couple cars without a stick. One passenger claims to have dislocated 
his shoulder by jumping from a train. No fault of company, as he was told by the conductor 
the train would stop for him and not to jump. A very old colored woman was knocked from 
the track by engine and was only slightly injured. A colored man attempted to pass between 
some box cars on siding just as an engine was coupling to them, and was slightly mashed.

The item "other deductions" includes the sum of $31,155.47, that being this company's pro- 
portion, to- wit: One-half of the loss sustained to June 30, 1892, in operating the Georgia, Caro 
lina and Northern Railway, this Company being a co-lessee of the said railway, which lease 
provides that 65 per cent, of the gross income of said railway and property shall be retained to 
pay the cost of operation, but 65 per cent, of the gross income of said railway not being sufficient 
to pay the cost of operation up to June 30, 1892, this company was called upon to make up one 
half of the deficit. 

An account of the operations of the Georgia, Carolina and Northern Railway is kept entirely 
separate and distinct from the accounts of the lessees individually, and nothing appears in the 
income account of this company concerning that railway except a payment to make up a deficit 
as above, or a profit should the cost of operations not amount to as much as 65 per cent, of the 
gross income.

IMPORTANT CHANGES DURING THE YEAR. 

By deed of lease dated July 1, 1889, this Company, with the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad 
Company, jointly leased the Georgia, Carolina and Northern Railway (then being constructed 
from Monroe, N. C, to Atlanta, Ga.), and guaranteed the interest and principal of $5,360,000 of 
that Railway Company's first mortgage bonds, bearing 5 per cent, interest. That Railway was 
completed to Atlanta during the present fiscal year, and is now being operated as though it was 
an independent concern, having its own Treasurer, Superintendent and other officers, and 
makes its own reports. The terms of the lease provide that 35 per cent, of the gross income after 
paying all taxes and assessments shall be devoted to paying expenses of keeping up the organi- 
zation of the Company, interest on bonds, debts incurred previous to the lease, and dividends, 
in the order given; 65 per cent, to be used to pay the cost of operation. Should the cost of opera- 
tion exceed 65 per cent, of the gross income as above, the lessee companies will furnish the sum 
necessary to make up the deficit. Five hundred thousand dollars of first mortgage bonds were 
sold, and $250,000 first mortgage bonds of the Raleigh and Augusta Air-Line Railroad Company 
were purchased.

South Carolina Air-Line Railroad Company, charter granted December 20, 1856, conferring 
on it the same power as was granted to the Georgia Air-Line Railroad Company, to run from 
the Georgia State line to the North Carolina State line. Amendment to the same approved Sep- 
tember 18, 1868. 

The North Carolina Air-Line Railroad Company, charter granted August 3, 1868, to run from

PROPERTY LEASED OR OTHERWISE ASSIGNED FOR OPERATION. 

Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line, operated by the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company, 
under agreement dated March 26th, 1881, under which the Richmond and Danville Railroad 
Company took possession of the works, property and assets of the Atlanta and Charlotte Air- 
Line Railway Company, and assumed all its liabilities then outstanding, agreeing to pay annu- 
ally all taxes, assessments, public dues and charges legally levied upon said Air-Line Company ; 
interest upon the first mortgage bonds of said Company in semi-annual installments of $148,750 ; 
interest on the first mortgage preference and income bonds of said Company in semi-annual 
installments of $40,000; dividend of five per cent, on $1,700,000 capital stock of said Company in 
semi-annual installments of $42,500, said dividend to be increased to six per cent, in event of the 
earnings of the Air-Line exceeding $1,500,000, and to seven per cent, in the event of earnings 
exceeding $2,500,000 ; for maintaining the organization of the Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line 
Company, the sum of $3,000 for the first year, and of $2,000 for each succeeding year, said sums

CHARLOTTE, COLUMBIA AND AUGUSTA RAILROAD. 

HISTORY. 

The Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad, with its leased lines (Atlantic, Tennessee 
and Ohio Railroad, and Chester and Lenoir Narrow-gauge Railroad), is leased to the Richmond 
and Danville Railroad Company for a term of ninety-nine years, from May, 1886. 

The original purpose of the Act incorporating the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad 
Company was to establish a communication by rail between the town of Charlotte, North Caro- 
lina, and some point on the South Carolina Railroad in the State of South Carolina, with a 
capital stock of $1,500,000. This corporation was exempt from taxation for a period of fifteen 
years from January 2, 1847— the day on which the Act of incorporation was ratified. It was 
allowed to increase its capital stock to $2,000,000, by an Act to produce conformity in the charters 
granted to the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad Company, by the States of North and 
South Carolina, ratified January 29, 1849. 

The Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad Company and the Columbia and Augusta Rail- 
raad Company met in Columbia, S. C, severally, on the 7th and 8th of July, 1869, and in joint 
session on July 8th, 1869, and perfected the consolidation as authorized. The Charlotte and South 
Carolina Railroad Company was chartered in South Carolina on the 8th of December, 1848, and 
in the State of North Carolina January 2d, 1847. The Columbia and Hamburg Railroad Com- 
pany was chartered in South Carolina December 21st, 1858, and its name was changed to Colum- 
bia and Augusta Railroad Company December 17th, 1863. Act authorizing the consolidation of 
the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad Company and the Columbia and Augusta Railroad 
Company under the name of the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad Company, was 
approved March 19th, 1869. (S. C. Statutes 16, page 232.)

CHESTER AND LENOIR RAILROAD. 

HISTORY. 

The Carolina Narrow-Gauge Railroad Company was chartered by State of North Carolina 
1872, and organized August 27, 1872. The Chester and Lenoir Narrow-Gauge Railroad Company 
was chartered by State of South Carolina February 26, 1873, and by charter authorized to con- 
solidate with the Carolina Narrow-Gauge Railroad Company and the Kings Mountain Railroad 
Company, chartered by the State of South Carolina December 19, 1848. Chester and Lenoir Nar- 
row-Gauge and the Carolina Narrow-Gauge Railroads were consolidated May 14, 1873. Chester and 
Lenoir Narrow-Gauge and Kings Mountain Railroad Company were consolidated April 3, 1874. 
The road was opened to Lenoir June 2, 1884. Chester and Lenoir Railroad Company chartered 
February 26, 1873, and opened to Lincolnton, North Carolina— sixty-three miles— in 1880. 

By these Acts of consolidation, communication by rail was established between Lenoir, in 
Caldwell County, via Hickory and Newton on the Western Railroad, to Lincolnton. A third 
rail is laid between Newton and Hickory, over the Western North Carolina Railroad, for the 
accommodation of narrow-gauge equipment.

NORTH-WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD 

COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

The North-Western North Carolina Railroad Company was chartered under the laws of 
North Carolina. Ordinance to incorporate, Ordinance 17, page 37 ; Act to confirm ordinance and 
charter, Private Laws, 1868, chapter 9, page 10 ; charter amended, Acts 1871-72, chapter 25 ; Acts 
1881, chapter 162. Road opened to Winston (Salem), 26 miles, in March, 1873. Extended west- 
ward 7 miles in 1888 ; to Donaha early in 1889, and to Wilkesboro in 1890. The road is virtually 
owned by the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company. 

The purpose of this Company, as declared in the original Act of incorporation, ratified by 
the Convention on the 9th day of March, 1868, was to construct a railroad from some point on 
the North Carolina Railroad between the towns of Greensboro and Lexington, running by w r ay 
of Salem and Winston to some point on the north-western boundary line of the State, to be 
determined afterwards. It was allowed to have a capital stock of $2,000,000, and a corporate 
existence of 99 years. The charter was ratified and confirmed by Act of the General Assembly, 
passed 11th day of August, A. D. 1868, and the privileges of the Company were afterward enlarged 
by the Act of the Assembly, ratified the 2d day of March, 1881, allowing it to extend and con- 
struct its road from Winston through the counties of Forsyth, Davidson, Yadkin, Davie, Rowan 
and Iredell, or any of them, to Statesville, or some other point on the Western North Carolina 
Railroad, and to build and operate branches thereto.

WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

The Western North Carolina Railroad was chartered February 15, 1855. Road opened to Old 
Fort in 1869 ; to Swannanoa in 1879 ; to Asheville Junction in 1880 ; to Paint Rock, State line, and 
a connection with the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad January 28, 1882. The 
Ducktown branch was opened to Nantahala River October 1, 1884, and to Jarretts in 1887. Road 
extended to Tomotla during 1890. Road completed to Murphy in 1891. 

The State's interest in this road was sold to W. J. Best and associates, under Act of the 
General Assembly, at special session, year 1880, the State receiving in payment therefor $600,000, 
being the amount of disbursements on account of said road, and purchasers to assume a mort- 
gage debt of $850,000, together with all floating indebtedness of the road, and also entering in con- 
tract to complete the road to Paint Rock and Murphy by a certain stipulated time. 

The road was subsequently transferred by W. J. Best, assigns and associates, toT. M. Logan, 
W. P. Clyde and A. S. Buford, representing the Richmond and West Point Terminal Company. 

The road was subsequently leased to the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company for a 
term of 99 years. The purpose of this incorporation was to effect a communication between the 
North Carolina road and the Mississippi Valley. This object has now been accomplished. 

No time was fixed in the Act for the expiration ©f its corporate powers.

CAPE FEAR AND YADKIN VALLEY RAILWAY COMPANY

CAPE FEAR AND YADKIN VALLEY RAILWAY COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

Organized April 2, 1879, under laws of the State of North Carolina, Act 25th February, 1879. 

In the year 1833 a charter was obtained and the ground broken for the building of the Cape 
Fear, Yadkin and Pee Dee Railroad ; but it was met by many difficulties, and being regarded as 
a doubtful experiment, the work was abandoned. 

The Western Railroad Company was chartered by the General Assembly of the State of 
North Carolina December 24, 1852, and the Mt. Airy Railroad Company was chartered April 4, 
1871 (amended February 28, 1877, also February 11, 1879), consolidated under the name of the Cape 
Fear and Yadkin Valley Railway Company by Act of the Assembly, and ratified the 25th day 
of February, 1879, amended the 26th day of March, 1880, and February 27, 1883. 

The consolidation as above stated was em cted in general meeting of the stockholders of the 
Western Railroad Company, held in Fayetteville, N. C, April 3, 1879. 

Name of the original corporation, the Western Railroad Company, reorganized as the Cape 
Fear and Yadkin Valley Railroad Company, under Act of the General Assembly, February 27, 
1883, and consolidated with the Mt. Airy Railroad Company under the name of the Cape Fear 
and Yadkin Valley Railway Company, for the purpose of extension. 

The road was built from Fayetteville to Egypt, forty-three miles, in 1860, and extended from 
Egypt to Gulf, four miles, in March, 1879. Road opened between Gulf and Greensboro, June 19, 
1884; from Fayetteville south to Maxton, August 1, 1884, and through from Greensboro via Fay- 
etteville to Bennettsville, S. C, including the leased South Carolina Pacific Railway, on Decem- 
ber 5, 1884. 

Road opened from Greensboro to State line December 15, 1884, and extended from Greens- 
boro to Belew's Creek, and branch built from Factory Junction to Millboro in 1886. In 1887 the 
main line was extended from Belew's Creek to Pilot Mountain, and in 1888 from Pilot Mountain 
to Mount Airy. The Madison branch was opened in December, 1888. An extension of the main 
line from Fayetteville to Wilmington, eighty-two miles, was opened February 17, 1890. The 
road is gi-aded four miles beyond Mt. Airy to the State line, where a connection with the Nor- 
folk and Western is proposed. 

The corporate powers granted to this company by the Act of the General Assembly of the 
24th day of December, 1852, were to continue until the year 1900. 

By Acts of the General Assembly, sessions 1879 and 1883, the State surrendered its interest in 
the road to a company of private citizens, and furnished convicts for the completion of the road 
(and branches) to the Virginia State line.

ATLANTIC AND NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 417 

ATLANTIC AND NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

Chartered in 1853; road opened in 1858. 

The purpose of the act of incorporation was to effect a railroad communication from the 
Atlantic through the center of the State to meet the Tennessee line from the most eligible point 
on the harbor of Beaufort, thence near Newberne, Trenton and Kinston, so as to strike the Wil- 
mington and Weldon Railroad and to connect with the North Carolina Railroad at Goldsboro 
with a capital stock of nine hundred thousand dollars. 

In order to further effectuate this purpose, the same act incorporated the North Carolina and 
Western Railroad Company, with a capital of $3,000,000, to commence on the North Carolina 
Railroad at or near the town of Salisbury, thence the most practicable route across the Blue 
Ridge to the Tennessee line, and provided that when these two companies should be formed, in 
compliance with the conditions of the act, they should have a corporate existence as a body 
politic for the term of ninety-nine years. 

This act of incorporation was amended by an act passed at the session of the Legislature 
1854-'55, providing that the company might at any time increase its capital to a sum sufficient 
to complete the road, and that whenever it should appear to the Board of Internal Improve- 
ments that one-third of the capital stock had been taken, by individuals or companies, and that 
$300,000 of thesame had been paid into the hands of the treasurer of the company, that the Board 
of Internal Improvements should be required to subscribe on behalf of the State to two-thirds 
of the capital stock of the company. 

By virtue of this provision the State owns 12,066 shares of stock and controls the manage" 
ment of the road.

COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC, 



BEFORE THE BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad Com- 
missioners, 

W. P. Mayo, Complainant, 

v. 

Western Union Telegraph Company. 

February 18, 1892. 

JUDGMENT. 

This cause came on to be heard before the Board of Railroad Com- 
missioners at a session at Raleigh February 18, 1892, upon complaint 
and demurrer. The plaintiff did not appear; the defendant appeared 
by Counsel Hon. George V. Strong. 

The plaintiff filed two complaints, the cause of action as stated in the 
first arising in the month of October, 1891, and the cause of action 
stated in the second arising in the month of November, 1891. 

Before the cause was heard the complaints were amended by the 
Court, with the consent of defendant's counsel, so that the first of said 
complaints should read as follows : 

" The petition of the above-named plaintiff respectfully shows — 

1. That the plaintiff is a citizen of North Carolina and a resident of 
the town of Mount Airy in said State. 

2. That the defendant above-named is a corporation duly incor- 
porated according to law, and as such corporation was on the 21st day 
of October, 1891, and has been ever since, engaged in the transmission 
of telegraphic messages by wire between the said town of Mount Airy 
and the town of Henderson in said State, and as such corporation is 
subject to the Act to provide for the general supervision of railroads, 
steamboat or canal companies, express and telegraph companies doing 
business in the State of North Carolina. 

3. That plaintiff did, on October 21, 1891, at about nine o'clock a m., 
deliver to the operator of the defendant company, at its office in the 
said town of Mount Airy, an important, repeated, prepaid message 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 561 

addressed to W. S. Clary, at the said town of Henderson; that the said 
message was not received by the said W. S. Clary until about 4 : 30 
o'clock p. m. of the same day; that answer to the said message was 
delivered to the defendant's operator, at said town of Henderson, about 
5:30 o'clock p. m. of said October 21, 1891, and was received at the 
defendant's office, in the said town of Mount Airy, about 6 : 30 o'clock 
p. m.j and was not delivered to plaintiff until about 8 : 40 o'clock p. m. 
of the same day; that said unnecessary delay in forwarding and 
delivering said messages was caused by the negligence of the defend- 
ant, was in violation of the said act of the General Assembly, and 
caused the plaintiff to sustain serious damage. 

Wherefore, the plaintiff prays that the defendant may be required 
to answer the charges herein, and that after due hearing and investi- 
gation, an order be made commanding the defendant to cease and 
desist from said violation of the act to provide for the general super- 
vision of railroads, steamboat or canal companies, express and tele- 
graph companies doing business in the State of North Carolina, and 
for such other and further orders as the Commission may deem neces- 
sary in the premises. And that the second of said complaints should 
read as follows : 

The petition of the above-named complaint respectfully shows — 

1. That plaintiff is a citizen of the town of Mount Airy and a resi- 
dent of said State. 

2. That the defendant above named is a corporation duly incor- 
porated according to law, and as such corporation was on the third 
day of November, 1891, and has been ever since engaged in the trans- 
mission of telegraphic messages by wire between the said town of 
Mount Airy and the town of Winston in said State, and as such cor- 
poration is subject to the act to provide for the general supervision of 
railroads, steamboat or canal companies, express and telegraph compa- 
nies doing business in the State of North Carolina. 

That an important message was delivered to the operator of the 
defendant company at its office in the said town of Winston about 11 
o'clock a. m. on the 3d day of November, 1891, by H. E. Harman, 
addressed to plaintiff at the said town of Mount Airy ; that said mes- 
sage was received at the defendant's office, in said town of Mount Airy, 
at 1 o'clock p. m., and was delivered to plaintiff at 3 o'clock same 
day ; that an answer to said message was at once delivered to the mes- 
senger of the defendant company by the plaintiff, with instructions to 
push it through ; that said answer was delivered to said H. E. Harman 
36 



562 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

at 7 o'clock p. m. of that day; that by reason of said delay, said Har- 
man was unable to take 4 o'clock train for Mount Airy, and great 
inconvenience and damage was sustained by the plaintiff, as well as by 
all parties concerned ; that said delay in forwarding and delivering 
said message was caused by the negligence of the defendant, was in 
violation of the said act of the General Assembly, and caused the 
plaintiff to sustain serious damage. 

Wherefore, the plaintiff prays that the defendant may be required 
to answer the charges herein, and that after due hearing and investi- 
gation, an order be made commanding the defendant to cease and 
desist from said violation of the act to provide for the supervision of 
railroads, steamboat or canal companies, express and telegraph compa- 
nies doing business in the State of North Carolina, and for such other 
and further orders as the Commission may deem necessary in the 
premises. 

To these complaints the defendant filed the following demurrer : 
The defendant above named doth demur to the petitions filed in the 
case, and says that the same are not sufficient in law, for that it appears 
upon the face thereof — 

1. That this Court has no jurisdiction of the subject of this action. 

2. That the petitions do not state facts sufficient to constitute a cause 
of action, because, 

First. They contain no allegation of general negligence or other 
wrongful conduct on the part of the defendant throughout the State or 
any portion thereof, or at the office mentioned in the petition, and con- 
tain allegations of only two instances of delay in the transmission and 
delivery of messages. 

Second. It is not alleged that the acts complained of were in violation of 
any rule or regulation provided and prescribed by the Commission. 

In the argument and hearing of this cause, the two complaints or 
petitions were considered by defendant's counsel and by the Court as 
statements of first and second causes of action against the defendant in 
one and the same action. 

It was also conceded by defendant's counsel that the Board of Rail- 
road Commissioners had authority to fix a standard rate to be charged 
by the defendant for transmission of messages, and that the Board had 
fixed such rates in their order, Circular No. 3, and that the same was in 
effect when the alleged causes of action arose. 

The facts stated in the complaints of petition are admitted by the 
demurrer. 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 563 

Has this Court jurisdiction of the subject-matter of the action? 

The plaintiff complains that the defendant carelessly and negligently 
delayed the transmission and delivery of telegraphic messages from and 
to the plaintiff, to his serious damage. 

He alleges that this unnecessary and negligent delay on the part of 
the defendant was in violation of the act of the General Assembly to 
provide for the general supervision of railroads, steamboat or canal 
companies doing business in the State of North Carolina, and invokes 
the jurisdiction of the Board of Railroad Commissioners conferred by 
that act, and by the act of the General Assembly constituting the 
Railroad Commissioners a Court of Record of general jurisdiction as 
to all subjects embraced in the act creating such Railroad Commission, 
that the defendant may be required to answer his complaint, and that 
such orders may be made for his relief as the Court may deem neces- 
sary in the premises. 

The tenth section of the act provides: "That if any railroad com- 
pany doing business in this State, by its agents or employees, shall be 
guilty of the violation of the rules and regulations provided and pre- 
scribed by said Commissioners, and if after due notice of such violation 
given to the principal officer thereof, if residing in the State, and if not 
so, to the manager, or superintendent, or secretary or treasurer, if re- 
siding in the State, and if not, then to any local agent thereof, ample 
and full recompence for the wrong or injury done thereby to any per- 
son or corporation, as may be directed by said Commissioners, shall not 
be made within thirty days from the time of such notice, such company 
shall incur a penalty for each offence of not less than fifty dollars nor 
more than five thousand dollars, to be fixed by the Judge of the Court 
in which such action shall be tried ; an action for the recovery of such 
penalties shall lie in any county within the State where such violation 
has occurred or wrong been perpetrated, and shall be in the name of 
the State of North Carolina. 

" The Commissioners shall institute such action through the Attorney- 
General or Solicitor of the Judicial district in which the violation has 
occurred, whose fees shall be fixed by the Judge of the Court in which 
such action shall be determined, and said fees shall be taxed in the bill 
of costs." 

Section 12 provides : " That in all cases under the provisions of this 
Act the rules of evidence shall be the same as in civil actions, except as 
provided by this act." 



564 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

"All fines recovered under the provisions of this act shall be paid into 
the State Treasury, to be used for such purposes as the General Assem- 
bly provides." 

" The remedies hereby given the persons injured shall be regarded as 
cumulative to the remedies now given, or may be given by law against 
railroad corporations, and this act shall not be construed as repealing 
any statute giving such remedies." 

Section 13 provides: "That the terms 'such companies,' or 'rail- 
road company,' contained in this act, shall be deemed and taken to 
mean all corporations, companies or individuals now owning or oper- 
ating, or which may hereafter own or operate, any railroad, steamboat, 
canal, express business or telegraph line, in whole or in part, in this 
State, and the provisions of this act shall apply as far as applicable, to all 
persons, firms and companies, and to all associations or persons, whether 
incorporated or otherwise, that shall do business as common carriers in 
this State (street railways excepted), the same as railroad corporations 
hereinbefore mentioned." 

Section 26 provides: "That the said Commissioners are hereby au- 
thorized and required to make, or cause to be made, just and* reason- 
able rates of charges for the transportation of packages by any express 
company or companies doing business in this State; also to make, or 
cause to be made, just and reasonable rates of charges for the trans- 
mission of messages by any telegraph line or lines doing business in 
the State, and any such express or telegraph companies charging a 
higher rate than that fixed or approved by said Commissioners, shall 
incur a penalty for each offence of not less than fifty dollars, nor more 
than five hundred dollars, and actions for the recovery of such penal- 
ties be brought as provided for in section 7 of this act with reference to 
penalties incurred by railroad companies; that the provisions of sec- 
tion 7 of this act in relation to the publication of schedules, the reg- 
ulations governing the right of appeal, the regulations as to evidence 
with reference to railroad companies, shall apply to express and tele- 
graph companies." 

Section 29 provides: "That from all decisions or determinations aris- 
ing under the operations or enforcement of this act, the party or cor- 
poration affected thereby shall be entitled to appeal therefrom, as in 
other cases of appeal where no appeal has heretofore been provided for 
as now provided by law." 

The act making the Railroad Commission a Court of Record provides : 
" That the Railroad Commissioners elected at this General Assembly

and successors in office be and they are hereby created and constituted 
a Court of Record inferior to the Supreme Court, and shall be known 
as the Board of Railroad Commissioners, and as such shall have all 
powers and jurisdiction of a court of general jurisdiction as to all sub- 
jects embraced in the act creating such Railroad Commission hereto- 
fore passed, and shall have a common seal." 

As directed to do so by section 26 of the act, the Commissioners on 
the 6th day of May, 1891, adopted the following standard telegraphic 
rates : 

Raleigh, May 6, 1891. 
Circular No 3. 

On and after June the 1st, 1891, all telegraphic messages having their 
origin and terminating within this State will be charged as follows: 

Ten words or under . 25 cents. 

Over ten words 2 cents for each additional word. 

By order of the Board, J. W. WILSON, 

H. C. Brown, Secretary. Chairman. 

On the 29th of May, 1891, this order was amended by the Commis- 
sioners by inserting the word " body " before the word " words " wher- 
ever the latter occurred in said Circular No. 3, and by directing said 
order to take effect on and after June 15, 1891, instead of on and after 
June 1, 1891. 

In order to carry out the provisions of the act, the Commissioners 
adopted rules of practice in cases and proceedings before them, stand- 
ard freight and passenger tariffs, rules governing the transportation of 
passengers and freight, rules governing the erection and location of 
depots, &c, and standard express rates. 

The Commissioners did not deem it necessary to adopt rules and reg- 
ulations for the transmission and delivery of telegraphic messages. 

The service itself implied care, skill and promptness. Pegram vs. 
Telegraph Company, 97 N. C. R,; Pegram vs. Telegraph Company, 100 
N. C. R. 

Its very nature carries with it the manner in which it shall be per- 
formed. Would its efficiency have been at all promoted if the Com- 
missioners had adopted a rule or regulation that all important repeated 
prepaid messages should be promptly forwarded and delivered, or that 
alljmessages should have prompt transmission and delivery? Such a 
regulation would have been a superfluity. 



566 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

The Commissioners have fixed rates of charges for telegraphic ser- 
vice in their order, Circular No. 3. 

They have adopted no rules or regulations as to how that service 
shall be performed, as they have done with reference to the service to 
be performed by railroad corporations, for the reasons given. 

The demurrer raises this question : Does the manner in which a 
telegraph company performs its service for any one person constitute one 
of the subjects embraced in the. act to provide for the general super- 
vision of railroads, steamboat or canal companies, express and telegraph 
companies doing business in the State of North Carolina, so that if such 
service should be careless and negligent, and such person should be 
injured thereby, he may seek his remedy before the Board of Railroad 
Commissioners as a court of general jurisdiction? 

Counsel for the defendant insisted that the act gave authority to the 
Commissioners to fix rates for telegraphic service, but that it did not 
give authority to adopt rules and regulations as to how that service 
should be performed; and if such authority was given, that the Com- 
missioners had failed to exercise it, and therefore the plaintiff could 
not bring his action under the tenth section of the act, because he 
could not allege that the defendant had violated the rules and regula- 
tions prescribed by the Commissioners. 

It was conceded by the counsel that the Commission could hear and 
determine a cause of action arising from a violation by the defendant 
of the rates of charges fixed by the Commission. 

From the title of the act it would seem that the Legislature intended 
to provide for the general supervision of all the subjects named, includ- 
ing telegraph companies. 

The Commissioners are required to enter upon their duties wholly 
unbiased by interests, and to take an oath to that effect. They are 
required to make reasonable and just rates of freight and passenger 
tariffs; to make reasonable and just rules and regulations as to charges 
at any and all stations for the necessary handling and delivery of 
freight; to prevent unjust discrimination in the transportation of freight 
and passengers, and indirect violations of the rates prescribed; and to 
prevent the deception of the public as to these rates. Section 5 of the act. 

They are clothed with power to investigate books and papers of 
the companies named, including telegraph companies, and to make 
personal visitations of their offices and stations in order to ascertain if 
their rules and regulations have been complied with. Section 8. 

All contracts and agreements between railroad companies as to rates 
of freight and passenger tariffs shall be submitted to the Commissioners 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 567 

fur inspection and correction, that it may be seen whether or not they 
are a violation of law or of the provisions of the act, or of the rules 
and regulations of the said Commissioners. Section 9. 

If any of the companies named shall do a wrong or injury to any 
person or corporation by a violation of the rules and regulations pre- 
scribed by them, they can determine the measure of relief. Section 10. 
They are empowered to compel the attendance of witnesses and to 
punish for contempt. Sections 16 and 27. 

These citations are sufficient, it would seem, to show that the intent 
of the Legislature was to provide for a general supervision of the sub- 
jects named, as expressed in the title of the act. The purpose of the 
Legislature, as thus expressed in the act creating the Railroad Com- 
mission, and in the act constituting that Commission, a Court of Record 
of general jurisdiction as to the subjects embraced in the former, is to 
place the subject named under legislative control, and to invest that 
Court with authority to make just and reasonable rates of charges for 
the service to be performed by these subjects on the one hand, and to 
require on the other hand that the service be performed by them in a 
just and reasonable manner. 

To effect this purpose penalties are provided, in case the order or 
judgment of the Commission should not be complied with, to be recov- 
ered in the courts, through their executive officers; the remedies given 
are cumulative, and an appeal allowed from any order or judgment of 
the Commissioners, so that no injustice may be done. 

If injury or wrong be done by a violation of the act or of the rules 
and regulations of the Commissioners made in pursuance of it, relief 
may be given not only to the injured party, but the wrong-doer may 
be required to desist from further violation of the law, if the act com- 
plained of is of such a character as to call for such an order. 

The conclusion is that the manner in w T hich a telegraph company 
performs its service for any one person constitutes one of the subjects 
embraced in the act creating the Railroad Commission, as to which 
the Board of Railroad Commissioners has a general jurisdiction. 

The Court is of the opinion that it has jurisdiction of the subject- 
matter of this action, and that the complaint therein states facts suffi- 
cient to constitute a cause of action against the defendant. 

Wherefore, it is considered and adjudged by the Court that the 
demurrer be overruled, and that the defendant answer the complaints 
in this action within thirty days from the date hereof. 

By the Board, H. C. BROWN, Clerk.

The defendant moves for an appeal to the Supreme Court of North 
Carolina from the judgment of the Court overruling its demurrer in 
the above-named case Which motion is refused by the Court, and the 
defendant excepts. 

Thereupon the defendant appeals to the Superior Court of Wake 
County, which is allowed by the Court.

This cause came on to be heard before the Board of Railroad Com-

to the Court that the matters complained of have been redressed by the

v.

April 20, 1892. 

Decision of The Commissioners. 
This cause coming on to be heard before the Board of Railroad Com- 
missioners at its office in Raleigh, on the 20th day of April, 1892, the 
following facts are found: 

1. That the defendant sold to the plaintiff a two thousand mile ticket- 
book about July, 1891. 

2. That said ticket contained, among other conditions, the following : 
"That the ticket shall be valid for the transportation of the person in 
whose name issued. If presented for transportation by any other person, 
or if altered, it shall be forfeited, surrendered to the conductor and full 
regular fare paid." 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 569 

3. That thereafter one W. E. Logan, the son-in-law of the plaintiff, 
had said ticket in his possession, a portion of which had been unused, 
and with consent of the plaintiff offered the same to the conductor of 
defendant as fare for transportation on defendant's train. 

4. That the defendant's conductor refused to receive said ticket as 
fare, declared the same forfeited and kept possession thereof, and still 
refuses to surrender possession of said ticket to the plaintiff. 

These facts are found from the allegations of the plaintiff and the 
admissions of the defendant. 

From the facts, the Commission concludes that the contract of trans- 
portation between the plaintiff and defendant was forfeited by the act 
of plaintiff's son-in-law, when he offered said ticket to the defendant's 
conductor as fare, and that the defendant conductor had the right to 
take possession of the same, and to refuse to surrender it to the plaintiff. 

Therefore, it is adjudged by the Commission that this action be dis- 
missed. 

By order of the Board, H. C. Brown, Clerk. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

A. M. Darden et al, Complainants, 

v. 

The Murfreesboro Railroad Company. 

April. 20, 1892. 

Decision of The Commission. 

This cause came on to be heard before the Board of Railroad Com- 
missioners at a session in Raleigh on the 20th day of April, 1892. The 
plaintiffs, sixty-one in number, who are citizens of Murfreesboro town- 
ship, in the county of Hertford, filed their complaint before the Board 
of Railroad Commissioners on the loth day of March, 1892, in which 
they complain that the passenger fare from Pendleton to Murfreesboro 
over the defendant company's road is fifty cents for a distance of six 
and one-third miles, and excessive, and that the freight charges are less 
to Murfreesboro than to Pendleton, Severn or Conway, although the 
distance is greater; that this is a discrimination which, if allowed, will 
be calculated to drive off river transportation ; that river transportation 
is the only dependence of the country people to the south and south- 



570 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

east of Murfreesboro for a distance of from four to ten miles; that if 
river communication should be withdrawn, the last-named people will 
be placed to a great disadvantage by being compelled to haul their 
freight from four to ten miles to the said branch road at Murfreesboro. 
They ask that passenger fare from Pendleton to Murfreesboro be re- 
duced from fifty cents to twenty-five cents, and that freight rates be 
equalized. 

A copy of the complaint was served on defendant March 16,1892, 
and on March 30, following, an answer w T as filed by the Seaboard Air-Line 
Company, through its general manager, John C. Winder, which thus 
came in at the instance of B. B. Winborne, president of the defendant 
company, and asked to defend the action. 

In its answer, the Seaboard Air-Line Company alleges that it now 
operates the defendant company's road under a contract w r ith the 
defendant company. 

The cause was assigned for hearing at the office of the Railroad Com- 
mission in Raleigh on the 20th day of April, 1892, and parties plain- 
tiffs and defendant had notice of the time and place of hearing. 

A . M. Darden, one of the plaintiffs, appeared in person and was exam- 
ined before the Commission. 

On February 22, 1892, the defendant Seaboard Air- Line Company 
filed with the Board of Railroad Commissioners its freight and passen- 
ger tariff. From the admissions of the answer, the tariff, exhibits and 
testimony in this cause, the Commission finds the following facts: 

1. That the distance from Pendleton to Murfreesboro, the terminal 
points of the company's road, is six and one-third miles. 

2. That the passenger fare over said road is fifty cents. 

3. That the charge for carrying freight from Baltimore to Murfrees- 
boro is less than for carrying freights to Pendleton, Conway or Severn, 
although the distance is greater to Murfreesboro, and that the same 
charge is made from other points outside of the State to each of these 
said places. 

4. That the town of Murfreesboro has a population of 1,200, with two 
female colleges, and is situated on the Meherrin river. 

5. That said river is navigable by steamboats, and there is competi- 
tion at said town between the defendant company and said steamboats. 

6. That the defendant company's road was partly built with the 
bonds of Murfreesboro township, and the township owns most of the 
stock of the road. 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 571 

7. That the plaintiffs are citizens and taxpayers of Murfreesboro town- 
ship. 

8. That the defendant company has contracted with its co-defendant, 
the Seaboard and Roanoke Company, to operate its said road, and the 
Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad Company is now operating said road 
under said contract. 

9. That the defendant company has been incorporated according to 
law for the purpose of carrying freight and passengers between the said 
towns of Pendleton and Murfreesboro, in the State of North Carolina, 
and the said co-defendant is an incorporated company, incorporated 
according to law, and both are within the jurisdiction of the Commission. 

10. That the defendant's road has been in operation since about the 
first of the present year. 

11. That the average rate of passenger fare of the first class, prescribed 
by the Commission on short branch lines, is less than four cents per mile. 

12. The fifth section of the act creating the Railroad Commission 
provides : " That the said Commissioners, appointed as hereinbefore pro- 
vided, shall, as hereinafter provided, make reasonable and just rates of 
freight and passenger tariffs, or cause the same to be furnished by any 
railroad company, and the same, when approved by said Commission- 
ers, shall be observed by such company or companies doing business in 
this State." 

From these facts, the Commission concludes: 

1. That the passenger fare between Pendleton and Murfreesboro is 
unjust and unreasonable, and ought not to be approved ; that the relief 
demanded by the plaintiffs that this fare be reduced from fifty cents to 
twenty-five cents is just and reasonable, and ought to be granted. 

2. That the charge for transporting freight to Murfreesboro from 
beyond the limits of the State is beyond the jurisdiction of this Com- 
mission, and they have no power to make rate thereon, but it appears 
to the Commission that these charges are just and reasonable, on 
account of the water competition at Murfreesboro, and the same are 
approved ; and that the demand of the plaintiffs for relief, that freight 
rates be equalized, ought not to be granted. 

Whereupon, it is considered and adjudged by the Commission that 
the passenger tariff of the defendant be so amended as to make the 
fare from Pendleton to Murfreesboro twenty- five cents, instead of fifty 
cents, and that the freight tariff of the defendant be and the same is 
hereby approved. It is so ordered by the Commission. 

This order to take effect on and after the 15th day of May, 1892. 

Bv order of the Board, H. C. Brown, Clerk.

State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Shipp, Complainant, 

v. 

Carolina Central R. R. Co. and Richmond and Danville R. R. Co. 

April 31, 1892. 

This was a case presented upon the complaint of R. J. Shipp against 
the defendants, filed December 22, 1891, complaining that the sched- 
ules were such as to cause the Chester and Lenoir Narrow-Gauge Rail- 
road and the Carolina Central to miss connection at Lincolnton, greatly 
to the inconvenience and injury of the traveling public. 

The Carolina Central Railroad Company answered on the 2d Feb- 
ruary, 1892, that the connection could be readily made if the Chester 
and Lenoir Narrow-Gauge Company would make the schedules con- 
form to that of the respondent; that the train of the Carolina Central 
Railway Company was a through train from Wilmington to Ruther- 
ford ton; that a change of respondent's schedule could not be made 
without seriously interfering with its patrons; that it had always 
desired to make the Lincolnton connection; had made frequent efforts 
to establish it, but as often as connection was made it had been broken. 

The Richmond and Danville Railroad Company answered on the 
2d day of March, 1892, that the Carolina Central train going west 
passed Lincolnton at 6:36 p. m., and the Narrow-Gauge, No. 12, passed 
there at 4: 34 p. m., and left Hickory for Lenoir at 6 : 40 p. m. ; that to/ 
hold respondent's train at Lincolnton would bring it to Lenoir at 9 : 50 
p. m., and thus require it to kill two hours time between Gastonia and 
Lincolnton; that it had a very important connection at Gastonia with 
its main line train, and as it was impossible to run the Narrow-Gauge 
train and make connection with its A. and C. main line train, as well 
as with Western North Carolina, No. 12, train and the Carolina Cen- 
tral at three, the respondent had thought it best to make connection 
with its own roads and line and leave out the Carolina Central. 

On the 13th day of February, 1892, the Commission issued to J. C. 
Winder, the General Manager of the Carolina Central Railway Com- 
pany, the following communication: "Several complaints have been 
filed with the Commission from persons living at Newton, relative to 
the connection at Lincolnton, en route to Charlotte and return. Since 
the filing of the first complaint, it appears that the Chester and Lenoir 
road has changed its schedule, leaving Hickory an hour earlier, thereby 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 573 

making close connection with Carolina Central at Newton, going east; 
but in returning there is no connection at Lincolnton. You will kindly 
advise the Commission why this connection cannot be made." 

On the 22d day of February, 1892, the Commission issued to A. B. 
Andrews, Vice-President of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Com- 
pany, the following communication: "Seemingly just complaints are 
being made about the connection at Lincolnton from Charlotte over 
the Narrow-Gauge, working a very serious hardship to persons from 
Lenoir, Hickory and Newton, doing business in Charlotte. For instance, 
persons from either of the above places leaving home in the morning, 
have to stay all night in Charlotte and return via Salisbury on the fol- 
lowing day. The Narrow-Gauge train waits at Hickory near two 
hours for the Western North Carolina train before leaving for Lenoir. 
If it is inconvenient to change the entire schedule, why not let the 
Narrow-Gauge train have the delay at Lincolnton instead of Hickory, 
making connection with the Carolina Central, and in this way enable 
parties to go and return from Charlotte the same day ?" 

There was other correspondence between the Commission and each 
of the defendants. 

The case came on to be heard before the Commission at a session in 
Raleigh on the 20th day of April, 1892, and it appearing that the relief 
asked for had been granted by the defendants, that satisfactory con- 
nections had been made at Lincolnton, and that no further relief was 
demanded in the premises, it is ordered and adjudged by the Com- 
mission that this action be dismissed. 

By order of the Board, H. C. BROWN, Clerk. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Saunders and Others, Complainants, 

v. 
The Cashie and Roanoke Railroad. 

May 18, 1892. 

Decision of The Commission. 

This is a petition filed with the Railroad Commissioners on the 21st 
day of December, 1891, by W. A. Saunders and fourteen other citizens 
of Bertie County, setting forth that the defendant had taken up a por- 
tion of its track from the town of Lewiston, for a distance of several 



574 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

miles, and ceased to run its train to said town, to the inconvenience and 
damage of the people of Lewiston and vicinity, and asking that the 
defendant be required to re-establish its line to said town. 

On the 13th day of January, 1892, the defendant filed a verified 
answer through its president, John W. Branning, in which it declares 
that its original purpose in constructing its roadway was to trans- 
port to market a large quantity of standing timber which it had pur- 
chased ; that there was no other railroad running to Lewiston at the 
time of its construction, and believing it would pay, at the solicitation 
of its citizens, it extended its road to said town, in order to afford freight 
and passenger facilities thereto; that the Seaboard and Roanoke Rail- 
road Company afterwards, in the year 1888, built a branch road from 
Boykins, Va., on its main line, to Lewiston, called the Roanoke and 
Tar River Road, after which both freight and passenger traffic from 
Lewiston, over the defendant's road, ceased almost entirely, and its 
trains were run to said town at a ruinous loss ; that it used every means 
to stimulate patronage without effect, until November, 1889, when two 
miles of its track from Lewiston was taken up and the iron used at 
other points on its line ; that since the discontinuance of its line to Lew- 
iston, a freight agent of the Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company 
went to said town to make investigation and ascertain whether it would 
pay to re-establish the connection, with a view to aid the defendant in 
doing so ; that after a full investigation he reported that under no cir- 
cumstances could it be made to pay ; that it had no purpose to escape 
any duty it owed the public. 

The defendant demanded judgment that the petition be refused. 

This cause was first assigned for hearing at Raleigh on April 20th, 
1892, and continued, on motion of the defendant, to May 18, 1892, when 
the defendant appeared through F. D. Winston and W. D. Pruden, its 
attorneys. 

At the hearing, John W. Branning, the president of the defendant 
company, was examined as a witness for defendant, and testified as set 
out in his answer. He also testified that the track was taken up and 
the line discontinued to Lewiston for no other reason than an entire 
want of business at that place, and that if business could be extended 
to the company, it would gladly re-establish its line to Lewiston. 

This relief was sought by the petitioners under section 21 of the act 
establishing the Commission, which is in these words : " A railroad cor- 
poration which has established and maintained for a year a passenger 
station or freight depot at a point upon its road, shall not abandon such 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 575 

station or depot, nor substantially diminish the accommodation fur- 
nished by the stopping of trains, except by consent of a majority of 
the Commissioners." 

From the testimony of John W. Branning, the Commission finds: 

1. That the defendant constructed its road for the original purposeof 
transporting to market the timber which it had purchased, between the 
Cashie and Roanoke rivers. 

2. That it extended its line lo Lewiston before any other railroad had 
been built to that point, believing it would pay to transport freight and 
passengers to and from said town. 

3. That after the completion of the Roanoke and Tar River Railroad 
to said town, the business of the defendant so far was such as to make 
it not only unremunerative but ruinous to continue the line to Lewiston. 

4. That in consequence of loss of business, the track, for two miles 
from Lewiston, was taken up in November, 1889, and the iron used on 
the other parts of the line when it was needed. 

5. That the track was taken up for no other purpose than an entire 
want of business at Lewiston, and the defendant would re-establish the 
line if business could be extended to it 

Upon the foregoing facts, the Commission is of opinion that it 
ought not to require the defendant to re-establish and extend its 
line to Lewiston ; and it further appearing that the matters complained 
of were donebefore the passage of the act establishing the Commission, 
it is of opinion that it has no power to grant the relief asked for in the 
petition. 

Therefore, on motion of F. D. Winston and W. D. Pruden, attorneys 
for defendant, it is considered and- adjudged that the petition be refused 
and the action dismissed. 

By the Board, H. C. Brown, Clerk. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Commissioners of Cleveland County 

v. 

The Southern and Western Air-Line Railroad Company. 

June 3, 1892. 

This is a petition filed with the Railroad Commissioners on the 21st 
day of September, 1891, by the Commissioners of Cleveland County 
against the Southern and Western Air-Line Railroad Company, in 



576 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

which they allege that defendant had violated and neglected to com- 
ply with the terms of its charter. 

The prayer of the petition is that notice be given the defendant of 
its neglect, and that the Commission take steps to have the charter of 
the defendant company forfeited, and for such other and further action 
as the Commissioners may deem necessary in the premises. 

The petition was verified by the Chairman of the Board of Commis- 
sioners of Cleveland County, and signed by McBrayer and Ryburn, 
attorneys for the county. 

On the 25th of November, 1891, the defendant filed an answer, 
signed by its President, Samuel Mc.D. Tate, in which it denied that it 
had neglected to comply with the terms of its charter or had violated 
any of its provisions. This answer was verified by J. A. Clay well, 
Secretary and Treasurer of the defendant company. 

On the 22d day of April, 1892, with leave of the Commission, the 
defendant filed a supplemental answer, which was signed by S. J. 
Erwin, its attorney, and verified by the said Clay well, Secretary and 
Treasurer of defendant. 

In this answer the defendant alleges that he had complied in good 
faith with the terms of its charter, and had diligently sought to carry 
out the purposes of its incorporation, and only ceased work in the con- 
struction of its road in the month of May, 1890, in consequence of the 
refusal of the plaintiffs to comply with their contract and pay the 
defendant as they had contracted to do, upon the subscription of fifty 
thousand dollars, as an inducement to the defendant to build its road 
as nearly as possible through the central part of Cleveland County ; 
that it had built about twenty-three miles of its road, in compliance 
with the terms of said contract, when the plaintiff in violation of the 
same, and in order to rid themselves of their obligation to the defend- 
ant, as the defendant believed and alleged, refused to further comply 
with said contract. 

The defendant prayed that the Commission decline to grant the 
prayer of the complainants, and that it decline to recommend that the 
charter of the defendant be forfeited, and for such other relief and 
redress as may seem fit and proper. 

This cause was assigned for hearing before the Commission at a ses- 
sion in Raleigh, on the 27th day of April, 1892, and continued until 
17th day of May following, on motion of plaintiffs. 

This relief was sought under section 19 of the act establishing the 
Commission, which is in these words: 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 577 

"The Commissioners, whenever in their judgment any corporation 
has violated or neglected in any respect to comply with the terms of 
the act by which it was created, or with the provisions of any law of 
the State not provided for in the act, shall give notice thereof in 
writing to such corporation; and if the violation or neglect is con- 
tinued after such notice, shall forthwith present the facts to the Attor- 
ney General, who shall take such proceedings thereon as he may deem 
expedient." 

Upon the hearing, the petitioners filed w T ith the Commission a com- 
munication in writing, signed by their attorneys, Messrs. McBrayer 
and Ryburn, in which it appears that since the filing of the petition,, 
they, the petitioners, have instituted suit in the Superior Court of Cleve 
land County, in which the matters complained of are involved, and 
having a common end in view, and asking that they be allowed to> 
withdraw their petition, without prejudice to said suit, as they do not 
desire to prosecute tw T o actions at the same time to accomplish the same 
object. 

After reading the pleadings in the cause, the Commission is of the 
opinion that the petition may be withdrawn and the action dismissed 
without prejudice to any suit now pending or which may be brought 
by the petitioners for the relief demanded, and it is so adjudged and 
ordered. 

By order of the Board.

It was filed 2d of February, 1892. On that day the Commission

copy of said rates, and asking information of any charge in excess of 
them.

On April 22, 1892, another letter was addressed to plaintiffs asking 
If any information could be furnished, or any further action was asked 
by the plaintiffs. No response was made to this communication, and it 
appearing that no relief is asked, and the Commission not being advised 
of any violation of the tariff, it is considered and adjudged that the 
complaint be dismissed.

v. 

Wilmington and Chadbourne Railroad Company. 

June 18, 1892. 

This was a complaint in the form of a letter, addressed to the Com- 
mission, and filed February 5, 1892, in which it appeared that the 
defendant had violated the passenger tariff fixed by the Commission. 

The Commission addressed a letter to the complainant on February 
5, 1892, in which rate of the defendant was stated (o him, and he was 
advised that complaint might be made and the same investigated by 
the Commission. 

On the 21st of April, 1892, another letter was addressed to complain- 
ant, in which he was advised that if the abuse complained of had not 
been corrected, to inform the Commission and the matter would be 
Investigated. 

To neither of these letters was there any response, and it appearing that 
there is no cause of complaint against the defendant, at a session of the 
Commission, held at Raleigh on the 15th day of June, 1892, the com- 
plaint is dismissed. 

By the Board.

v. 

The Richmond and Danville Railroad Company. 

June 16, 1892. 

DECISION OF THE COMMISSIONERS. 

This was a complaint filed April 5, 1892, in which the plaintiff 
alleged that the defendant company refused to transfer cars loaded and 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 579 

consigned to plaintiff at his place of residence in the town of Winston, 
and coming over the Norfolk and Western road, from the track of the 
said Norfolk and Western road, at its terminal point in the said town 
of Winston, to the warehouse of the plaintiff, situated on the property 
of the defendant in said town. 

The plaintiff asked that the Commission make a rule or regulation 
requiring the defendant to make such transfer for the plaintiff, and 
fixing a reasonable charge for such service. 

The defendant answered the complaint, and without denying the 
allegation of the complaint, by way of defense alleged that the ware- 
house of the plaintiff was situated on the defendant's property by per- 
mission of defendant, and filed with its answer, as a part of it, the writ- 
ten contract under which said warehouse was built. The defendant 
also alleged that its line reached all points, and that it ought not to be 
required to transfer cars that came to Winston over the Norfolk and 
Western Railroad from points reached by its line; that it had gone to 
the expense to get its terminal facilities, and did not feel that it ought 
to be required to give another road the benefit of them. 

The case was first assigned for hearing on the 28th day of April, 
1892, and afterwards continued, without objection, to June 15, 1892, 
when it was heard at a session of the Commission in Raleigh. 

A. B. Andrews, Vice-President of the defendant, appeared before 
the Commission for the defendant, and stated that the defendant was 
willing to transfer cars for the plaintiff from the Norfolk and Western 
road, that might be consigned to him at Winston, to his warehouse 
from all points not reached by the defendant's lines, or where the 
defendant could not make as good rates for the plaintiff as other roads; 
but he insisted that under the conditions of the contract by which the 
plaintiff's warehouse was built on the defendant's property, that the 
defendant ought not to be required to transfer cars from another road, 
consigned to the plaintiff at Winston, to his warehouse, where he had 
violated the letter and spirit of that contract by refusing to give his 
business on equal terms to the defendant. The plaintiff admitted the 
contract, and that he built his warehouse by virtue of it. 

It appears from said contract that the plaintiff built his warehouse 
upon the lands of the defendant, by permission of the defendant, and 
that the condition of such permission was the advantage to be derived 
by the defendant from such additional accommodations for freights 
designed for or received from said railroad ; that said warehouse was 
built for the storage of fertilizers and other coarse goods; that no other 



580 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

building was to be erected on the premises by the plaintiff; that the 
contract might be terminated by either party on one month's notice, in 
which event the plaintiff should remove his warehouse from the 
defendant's property. 

It does not appear that the defendant has refused to transfer any car 
consigned to the plaintiff from any point not reached by defendant's 
lines, or from which defendant has declined to give rates as good as 
those given by any other line from said point to Winston. 

The plaintiff's case presents this question: 

Whether under the contract between plaintiff and defendant, the 
Commission should make a rule requiring the defendant to transfer 
cars to the plaintiff's warehouse from the Norfolk and Western road, 
upon reasonable terms or upon such terms as the Commission may fix? 

Upon the facts of this case, the Commission is of the opinion that it 
ought not to require the defendant to transfer cars from the Norfolk 
and Western road to the plaintiff's warehouse, when such cars are con- 
signed to plaintiff from points reached by the defendant's lines and its 
connections, and when the defendant offers transportation to the plain- 
tiff from said points on terms as favorable to the plaintiff as those 
accorded by the Norfolk and Western and its connections; but when 
cars are consigned to plaintiff from points not reached by the defend- 
ant's line and its connections, or when defendant fails or refuses to give 
to plaintiff transportation from points reached by the Norfolk and 
Western Railroad and its connections to Winston on terms as favorable 
as those afforded the plaintiff by the Norfolk and Western and its con- 
nections, then, or in either case, the Commission is of the opinion that 
it ought to require the defendant to transfer cars assigned to plaintiff 
from the Norfolk and Western Railroad to its warehouse on reasonable 
terms, or such as are reasonably allowed for switching — and it is so 
considered and adjudged by the Commission. 

By the Board, H. C Brown, Clerk.

v. 

Atlantic Coast Line et at. 

June 19, 1892. 

This cause was called for hearing at a session in Raleigh, on the 19th 
day of June, 1892. 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 581 

The complaint, which was in the form of a petition to each of the 
defendants, alleged that in all the territory outside of a circle described 
from a point north of Magnolia, N. C, to a point south of Marion, S. C, 
and embracing Fayetteville, Hamlet and points south of and west of 
Bennettsville, discrimination was made in favor of Richmond and Nor- 
folk, Va., and of Charleston, S. C, against Wilmington ; that freight 
rates on meat, grain and flour shipped from Chicago and the Northwest 
to Richmond and Norfolk, Va., and reshipped to the points in said ter- 
ritory, are less than the rates on the same goods shipped to Wilming- 
ton and reshipped thence to said points. A table showing these rates 
was filed as a part of the complaint. 

On the 12th of December, 1891, the members of the Railroad Com- 
mission visited the city of Wilmington, and certain of the complainants 
appeared before the Commission and asked to be heard. 

After hearing them, the Commission was of opinion that it had 
no jurisdiction of the grievance, except to refer it to the Interstate Com- 
mission if desired, but determined to bring it first to the attention of 
the defendants, and ask their consideration. 

The records show the action taken, and the prompt and careful con- 
sideration given the complaint by the corporations, and the difficulties 
in the way of making that revision and correction of rates asked by 
the complainants. 

Wilmington being our principal seaport, it was the wish of the Com- 
mission to do all in its power to secure satisfactory rates for its enter- 
prising merchants, and regret is felt that no change of rates can be 
made, as appears from the responses of the defendants, that will accom- 
plish the end desired without deranging the system already in use, and 
working injustice in other directions, unless better rates can hereafter 
be made from Memphis, which the Commission earnestly hopes may 
be accomplished. 

The Commission having no jurisdiction to make any order in the 
cause, the complainants not desiring that the same be approved for 
hearing by the Interstate Commission, it is considered and adjudged 
that the complaint be dismissed.

Commissioners, 

Og-lesby, Complainant, 
v. 
The Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad and the Wilming- 
ton and Weldon Railroad Company. 

July 5, 1892. 

This complaint alleged an excessive rate on cantaloupes, and asked 
the Commission to have them classed as vegetables. The complaint 
alleged that the rate varied from 80 cents to $1.30 per crate, and was 
so high that the profits were consumed in the freight charges. 

The complaint was filed on the 14th day of June, 1892, and served 
on the defendant on the 16th, following. On the 21st of June, follow- 
ing, the defendant the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company, 
through its traffic manager, T. M. Emerson, answered that it would 
hereafter rate cantaloupes as vegetables. 

The defendant the Atlantic arid North Carolina Railroad Company, 
answered and filed with the Commission on June 28, following, a 
copy of an order to agents and connections, taking effect at once, 
through S. L. Dill, general freight agent, directing that rates on canta- 
loupes packed in barrels L. C. L. released, should be the same as veg- 
etables N. 0. S. in barrels, estimated weight 150 pounds, from all points 
covered by rates and divisions on vegetables. 

These communications were furnished to plaintiff, who replied on 
July 1, following, saying that the reduced rates were satisfactory. 

The case was called for hearing at a session of the Commissioners 
held at Raleigh on July 5, 1892, and it appearing that the relief asked 
had been granted, the action was dismissed.

This was a complaint by N. W. Brown & Co , merchants of Hillsboro, 
N. C, against the defendant alleging an overcharge on consignment of 
butter made b}^ the defendant. 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 583 

Complaint was filed May 27, 1892. On June 17 following, defendant 
answered through W. i- Croswell, Superintendent, admitting the over- 
charge but saying that investigation showed that it grew out of a mis- 
take of the agent at Hillsboro on billing the shipment as merchandise 
instead of butter, upon which last was a lower rate. The defendant 
also was ready to refund the overcharge at once. This was the relief 
demanded by the plaintiff. 

At a session of the Commission beginning at Raleigh, July 5, 1892, it 
appearing that the injustice complained of in this case had been 
redressed, the action was dismissed. 



State op North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Crawley, Complainant, 

v. 

The Carolina Central Railroad Company. 

July 6, 1892. 

In this case the complaint alleged that the defendant company left 
the freight consigned to parties at Bladenboro exposed to the weather, 
often leaving it in the ditches by the side of the track, and asked the 
Commission to make an order requiring the defendant to grant them a 
better service in delivering and caring for freight. 

The complaint was filed on the 19th of January, 1892, and on the 
same day a copy was served on the defendant. 

On the 25th of January following the defendant answered through 
J. C. Winder, General Manager, saying that no complaint had ever 
been made to the defendant of any neglect at Bladenboro. 

On the 26th of January the Commission addressed a letter to R. L. 
Bridgers & Brothers, the station agents at Bladenboro, calling attention 
to the complaint, and asking information as to the matter complained of. 

On the 27th of January a reply was received, saying that all freight 
received at Bladenboro was cared for in the warehouse, and that no 
complaint had been made since the building of the warehouse. On 
the 17th of February the plaintiff filed with his complaint the affidavits 
of J. W. Cashwell and D. H. Johnson. 

The case was set for hearing before the Commission at a session in 
Raleigh on the 18th of February, 1S92, when General Manager J. C. 
Winder appeared for the defendant. The plaintiff did not appear. 



584 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

The complaint and affidavits were read, when the General Manager 
asked for copies of the same, assuring the Commission that any griev- 
ances at Bladenboro should be investigated and redressed, and moved 
a continuation of the case that he might have time to take this action. 
This motion was allowed, and the plaintiffs advised of the assurances 
given the Commission by the General Manager, and the day of the 
hearing, and asked to communicate to the Commission whether the 
injuries complained of had been redressed or further relief was 
demanded. 

On June 16 following the Commission addressed a further communi- 
cation to the plaintiffs, calling attention to former letter of February 18 
and asking if further relief was asked. To neither of these did plaintiff 
reply. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh on July 5, 1892, the 
case was called for hearing, and it appearing that the matters complained 
of had been remedied and no further investigation necessary, the 
action was dismissed. 



State of North Carolina ox the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Jeffrey & Co. and others. Complainants, 

v. 

The Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company. 

July 6, 1892. 

This was a complaint filed March 16, 1892, by Messrs. Jeffrey & Co. 
and others, merchants of Conoho, N. C, against the defendant Com- 
pany, in which it was alleged that the defendant discriminated in the 
transportation of freight from Baltimore, Maryland, to Conoho and 
Tarboro, N. C, respectively, in favor of the latter place, charging less 
for transportation to the latter place, although the distance was greater. 
The facts set forth disclosed a plain violation of law, but it appeared 
that the Commission had no jurisdiction of the case, except to investi- 
gate the complaint and to bring it, if sustained, before the Interstate 
Commission for redress, in accordance with the act of Congress estab- 
lishing said Interstate Commission. 

Therefore, on the 17th of March following the Commission addressed 
a communication to the complainants asking that the complaint be 
made under oath, stating the case fully and clearly, showing the dis- 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 585 

tance to Conoho and Tarboro, respectively, from Baltimore, and saying 
that the Commission would then bring the same before the Interstate 
Commission for redress, in pursuance of the act establishing the Com- 
mission for North Carolina. No reply was received to this communi- 
cation. 

On the 29th of April following the Commission addressed another 
communication to the complainants, calling attention to the communi- 
cation of March 17, and asking if the abuse complained of had not 
been remedied, and an investigation was desired, that the Commission 
might be advised of it. At the same time the complainants were fur- 
nished with a blank form to aid in stating the grievance. No reply 
was received to this communication. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh on the 5th day of 
July, 1892, this case came on to be heard; and it appearing, as set 
forth, that no further relief was asked, and no communication having 
been received from the complainants, the Commission was of opinion 
that no further action was demanded, and it was adjudged that the 
action be dismissed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Fairly, Complainant, 

v. 

The Carolina Central Railroad Company. 

July 7, 1892. 

Complaint filed June 9, 1892, alleged that defendant charged seven 
cents more freight from Lilesville than from Monroe, N. C, (Lilesville 
being 31 miles nearer) on all shipments of cotton to foreign ports. 

On June 24 following, defendant answered through General Man- 
ager J. C. Winder, alleging that all cotton was compressed from Mon- 
roe and from points south and west of it, and hence, under the rules of 
the Associated Railways of Virginia and the Carolinas, was charged less, 
but that at next cotton season all points would be put on the same basis. 

On July 5 following, this answer was referred to the plaintiff, 
and on the 7th following, a reply was made to the Commission that 
the remedy provided was satisfactory. 

At a session of the Commission beginning at Raleigh on the 7th of 
July, 1892, this case was called for hearing, and it appearing that no 
further investigation was necessary and no other relief demanded, the 
action was dismissed.

The Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company

The Board of Eailroad Commissioners. 

July 7, 1892. 

EX PARTE. 

This was a petition of the Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company 
to the Commission, filed May 13, 1892, calling attention to a map 
enclosed as a part of the petition, and asking the approval of the Com- 
mission to a change in the location of a freight and passenger station 
at Belcross, in Camden County, on the line of the petitioner's road. 

On the 25th of May following, the Commission addressed a communi- 
cation to the petitioner, advising that notice be given by advertisement 
at three different public places, for fifteen days, of the change of station 
as proposed. 

On June 25 following, the petitioner enclosed to the Commission 
a printed copy of advertisement made as prescribed. This petition was 
brought before the Commission under section 22 of the act establish- 
ing the Commission, which provides: "A railroad corporation may 
relocate passenger stations or freight depots with the approval in writ- 
ing of the Commissioners." 

The petition was called for hearing at a session of the Commission 
in Raleigh on July 5, 1892, and it appearing that the notices required 
had been given by the petitioners, and that no opposition had been 
made to the change of station asked in the petition, it was considered 
and adjudged by the Commission that the erection of a freight and 
passenger station at Belcross, on the line of the Norfolk and Southern 
Railroad Company, in accordance with the petition, be and the same 
is hereby approved by the Commission.

v. 

The Atlantic Coast Line and the Seaboard Air-Line Railroad 

Company. 

July 7, 1892. 

In this case the complainant alleged that a car load of meat, con- 
signed to complainant at Tarboro, N. C, had been detained for six 
days in transit by the defendant Seaboard Air-Line Company, and that 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 587 

a car load of meat, consigned to complainant at Tarboro, had been 
detained for seven days in transit by the defendant, the Atlantic Coast 
Line Company, causing in both cases loss and inconvenience to com- 
plainant. The complaint was filed June 17, 1892, and a copy of same 
served by mail on each of the defendants on June 2L following. 

On June 23 answer was made on the part of the Atlantic Coast Line 
Company by T. M. Emerson, Traffic Manager, enclosing report of 
agent, C. E. Brown, of Petersburg, Virginia, from which it appeared 
that the car in that case was not billed to Tarboro, but was billed 
locally to Petersburg; and, afterwards, the Norfolk Agent of the com- 
plainant, through the Norfolk and Western Agent, gave instructions to 
consign the same to Tarboro. This caused delay in giving informa- 
tion to defendants agent at Petersburg, 

On July 4, answer was made on the part of the Seaboard Air-Line 
Company by J. C. Winder, General Manager, enclosing statement of 
T. W. Whisnant, Superintendent, from which it appeared that the car 
in this case was consigned by error of the Cincinnati and Ohio Rail- 
road Company to complainant at Suffolk, Virginia, and effort was made 
there by defendant to find out the future destination of the same; and 
as soon as the same was discovered, it was at once forwarded to com- 
plainant at Tarboro. The case was heard at a session of the Commis- 
sion held at Raleigh on the 5th of July, 1892. 

The 24th section of the act creating the Railroad Commission pro- 
vides that "all common carriers subject to the provisions of this act 
shall, according to their powers, afford all reasonable, proper and equal 
facilities for the interchange of traffic between their respective lines, 
and for the forwarding and delivering of passengers and freights to 
and from their several lines and those connected therewith." 

The 10th regulation, concerning freight rates prescribed by the Com- 
mission, provides: " No railroad company doing business in this State 
shall permit a blockade of an} T class of freights on account of any 
arrangement existing between it and other railroad companies as to 
the transportation of freight according to percentages or otherwise." 

These provisions are intended to prevent delay and to effect speedy 
carriage of passengers or freights. In the case presented by the com- 
plaint, the delay, six days as to one car and seven days as to the other, 
seemed at first view inexcusable; but, upon investigation made with 
promptness by the defendants, it appears that the fault was not that of 
the defendants, or either of them, but that the delay was caused by the 
negligence or error of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad Company in 



588 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

consigning one of the cars to the complainant at Petersburg and the 
other at Suffolk, and the loss of time in ascertaining their final desti- 
nation. 

These facts appear not only from the statements made by the agents 
of the defendants at Petersburg and Suffolk, respectively, but by the 
bills of lading furnished the Commission as proof. It also appears 
that as soon as the defendants in each case ascertained that the cars 
were to be consigned to the complainant at Tarboro, they were at once 
forwarded to their destination. 

Upon these facts, the Commission is of opinion that the delay com- 
plained of was unavoidable and not unreasonable on the part of the 
defendant^, and that the action should be dismissed, and it is so 
adjudged. The Commission has not considered the question of juris- 
diction in this case. It was not raised by the defendants, and it is not 
deemed necessary to pass upon it.

In this case a complaint was filed against the defendant company on 
May 20, 1892, alleging that the defendant's train was wrecked near 
Salisbury, N. C, on the 11th of March previous, and that complainant's 
trunks, containing samples, were thereby detained for ten days, by 
which complainant sustained serious loss and inconvenience, and was 
charged ten dollars for each day lost by the firm for which he was act- 
ing as salesman. The complaint asked the Commission to require the 
defendant to make good this loss. 

On the 25th of May following, the Commission addressed a communi- 
cation to the complainant, advising him that this grievance was not 
withinlthe jurisdiction of the Commission, but that his recourse was 
through the courts. At the same time, the Commission stated that the 
complaint, if so desired, would be referred to the officials of the Rich- 
mond^and Danville Railroad Company, with request to give the proper 
remedy. To this communication there was no reply.

v. 

The Richmond and Danville Railroad Company. 

July 8, 1892. 

This was a complaint against the defendant filed June 14, 1892, 
in which it was alleged that the defendant was guilty of discrimination 
in freight rates from Gaffney City, S. C, to points in North Carolina, as 
compared to rates for like distances to points in South Carolina and 
Georgia. The complaint alleged that the rate on lime from Gaffney 
City to Columbia, S. C, 115 miles, was $12.25 per car load, 20,000 
pounds; from Gaffney City to Salisbury, about 98 miles, the rate was 
$24 per car load, 20,000 pounds; from Gaffney City, S. C , to Elberton, 
Ga., about 170 miles, the rate was $20 per car load, 20,000 pounds. 

The plaintiff asked relief, if within the jurisdiction of the Commis- 
sion. At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh July 5, 1892, 
the case was called for hearing, and it appearing that the relief de- 
manded was not within the jurisdiction of the Commission, the action 
was dismissed, and the plaintiff advised to seek his remedy before the 
Interstate Commission.

that the overcharge was due to a clerical error, and immediately ordered 
the same to be refunded. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh July 5, 1892, the

addressed to the Commission by the plaintiff that the injury complained 
of had been redressed, and that no further relief was asked, the action 
was dismissed.

This was a complaint of overcharge on a consignment of peas from 
Enfield, N. C, by defendant, filed June 15, 1892. 

The plaintiff filed freight bill furnished by defendant as a part of 
the complaint, showing consignment of 700 pounds of peas, Class D, 
rate 16, freight and charges, $2.38; original point of shipment, Whit- 
aker's, a station on the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, about fifty 
miles from Goldsboro. The freight bill also showed the consignment 
was by way of Goldsboro, passing over the Wilmington and Weldon 
Railroad to that point, and thence over the defendant's road to plaintiff 
at Hillsboro, N. C, a distance of 90 miles. 

The charges were investigated, and it appearing that the consign- 
ment was over two different lines, and notin violation of the tariff pre- 
scribed, at a session of the Commission held at Raleigh on the 5th of 
July, 1892, the complaint was dismissed.

Commissioners, 

Citizens of Charlotte and Citizens of Wilmington, Complainants, 

v. 
Carolina Central Railroad Company. 

July 16, 1892. 

DECISION OF THE COMMISSIONERS. 

This was a complaint that the defendant company had changed its 
schedule of passenger trains between Wilmington and Charlotte, to 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 591 

take effect on the 17th of July, 1892, and had withdrawn one train 
from its passenger service, which would cause serious inconvenience 
and loss to the complainants, and asking that the schedule in effect 
prior to that date be continued, and that neither of the trains be with- 
drawn. 

The complaint was filed on the 6th of July, 1892, and a copy served 
that day on the defendant. On July 9, following, the defendant an- 
swered, and the case was called for hearing on the 16th of July follow- 
ing, at a session of the Commission in Raleigh. The complainants did 
not appear in person, but filed extracts from the press of Charlotte, cor- 
respondence from individuals, and a memorial of the Produce Exchange 
of Wilmington setting forth the injuries that would result from the 
action of the defendant. 

The defendant appeared through its General Manager, J. C. Winder, 
who filed with the Commission a statement in which the operation of 
the former schedule was fully set out, and also the effect of the one 
complained of upon the interests of the parties complaining. The 
statement declared (hat the defendant had made it a study to do every- 
thing in its power to build up the cities of Charlotte and Wilmington; 
that no injustice or wrong had been done to either of those cities; that 
the defendant had been unable to meet its interest, and that its floating 
debt had been constantly increasing ; that it was absolutely essential 
that every possible economy should be exercised to bring about a suffi- 
cient revenue to meet its expenses and interest; that the change of 
schedule would make a saving which it was absolutely necessary should 
be done, and was for no other purpose than because the defendant 
could not afford, for want of patronage, to operate the former schedule. 
The General Manager was also heard by the Commission as a witness, 
in support of the facts set out in the written statement. 

The defendant also filed with the Commission extracts from The Union 
and Scottish Chief, a newspaper published in the town of Max ton, situ- 
ated on the defendant's road, and from The Daily Review, a newspaper 
published in the city of Wilmington ; the former expressing approval 
of the new schedule, and the latter its acquiescence therein. 

The relief in this case is sought under the 24th section of the act 
establishing the Commission, which is as follows : "All common carriers 
subject to the provisions of this act shall, according to their powers, 
afford all reasonable, proper and equal facilities for the interchange of 
traffic between their respective lines, and for the forwarding and deliv- 
ering of passengers and freights to and from their several lines and 



592 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

those connected therewith, and shall not discriminate in their rates and 
charges against such connecting lines, and connecting lines shall be 
required to make as close connection as practicable for the convenience 
of the traveling public," etc. 

The eleventh rule, governing the transportation of passengers pre- 
scribed by the Commission, which is but an affirmance of this pro- 
vision, provides: 

" That all connecting railroads, which are under the management 
and control by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same com- 
pany, or at connection with a different company, shall be required to 
make close connection whenever practicable." 

It must be observed that the section of the act and the rule quoted, 
authorize the Commission to hear and determine a case where the com- 
plaint alleges or the investigation discloses that the common carrier, 
against whom the complaint or the investigation is made, does not 
afford, according to its powers, all reasonable, proper and equal facilities 
for the interchange of traffic and the forwarding and delivering of pas- 
sengers between its line and other lines connecting with it, or discrimi- 
nates in its rates and charges against such connecting lines, or fails to 
make as close connection as practicable with such connecting lines for 
the convenience of the traveling public. 

The act establishing the Commission nowhere gives jurisdiction to 
fix a schedule for any common carrier, prescribing the time of arrival 
and departure of its trains or their number to suit the convenience of 
those who may wish to travel over its line. The purpose of the act, 
as construed by the Commission, is to afford relief to the traveling 
public by preventing unreasonable delay and inconvenience at con- 
necting points on account of a failure to afford all reasonable and 
proper and equal facilities for speedy transit. Hence, connecting lines 
are not only required to make as close connections as practicable, but 
they are forbidden to discriminate in their rates and charges. 

The complaint in this case nowhere alleges that the schedule com- 
plained of will unreasonably delay or inconvenience the traveling 
public at any point or connection between the defendant and other 
lines, by a failure to make as close connections as practicable with 
such lines, or by a failure to afford all reasonable, proper and equal 
facilities for forwarding and delivering passengers between the defend- 
ant's line and such connecting lines, or by discrimination in its rates 
and charges. The complaint goes no further than to allege that the 
complainants will be injured and inconvenienced by the change in the 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 593 

time of the arrival and departure of the defendant's passenger trains- 
at the cities of Charlotte and Wilmington, and the withdrawal of one 
train, and asks the Commission to grant an order requiring the defend- 
ant to restore the former schedule. 

The Commission is of opinion that it does not have jurisdiction to 
grant the relief asked. Aside from the question of jurisdiction, it 
appears, from the evidence before the Commission, that the change of 
schedule was not arbitrary or even made willingly by the defendant, 
but reluctantly, and w T as necessary to meet its indebtedness. From the 
facts in the case, it appears that the defendant, under the schedule 
complained of, will afford according to its powers all reasonable, proper 
and equal facilities for the forwarding and delivering of passengers 
over its line and those connecting with it. 

The Commission is, therefore, of opinion that it ought not to grant 
the relief asked, and it is so adjudged.

A. E. Peele, Complainant, 

v. 

The Seaboard Air Line Railroad and the Southern Express 

Company. 

July 16, 1892. 

This was a complaint of overcharge on consignment made by plain- 
tiff to consignees in Norfolk, Va. The complaint was filed on the 18th 
of June, 1892. 

On that day the complaint was served on the defendant the Seaboard 
Air-Line Company, and the defendant answered on the 27th of June 
following, filing correspondence as a part of answer, showing that the 
shipment was not made by defendant, but by its co-defendant the 
Southern Express Company. On July 6 following, the complaint was 
served on the defendant the Southern Express Company. 

On July 13 following, this defendant answered, filing with answer 
correspondence and way-bill from Potecasi, in Northampton County, 
the point from which shipment was made, from which it appeared that 
the weight of article shipped was four hundred pounds. 

The case was called for hearing before the Commission at a session in 
Raleigh on the 15th day of July, 1892, and it appearing that the rate 
38 



594 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

charged upon weight of four hundred pounds, was not in excess of the 
tariff of the defendant, viz., sixty cents per hundred on distances 
between fifty and seventy-five miles, and that the apparent overcharge 
was due to the excessive weight of the crate used in shipment, and it 
further appearing that there had been no violation of the tariff pre- 
scribed, the action was dismissed. 

In this case the remedy sought by the plaintiff was beyond the juris- 
diction of the Commission, but the defendant not insisting on this 
defense, the Commission have investigated the complaint upon its mer- 
its, and rendered judgment accordingly.

August 30, 1892. 

This was a complaint filed February 1, 1892, by the complainants, a 
mercantile firm doing business in Statesville, N. C, in which they 
allege that on or about the month of December, 1891, the defendant 
failed and refused to deliver to complainant a barrel of oil, upon which 
they had paid the freight charges and tendered the bill of lading for 
the same. 

The complainants asked that the defendant be required to refund the 
price paid by them for the oil, and the charges and expenses incurred 
by reason of the default of the defendant.

The complaint was served on the defendant February 16, 1892, and 
answer filed March 15 following, admitting and explaining the allega- 
tion of the complaint. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh August 30, 1892, the 
case was called for hearing, and it appearing that the relief demanded 
by the complainants had been given by the defendant, it was adjudged 
that the action be dismissed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Town of Maxton, Complainant, 

v. 

The Carolina Central Railroad Company. 

August 30, 1892. 

In this case a complaint was filed January 24, 1892, by Messrs. 
Black & Patterson, attorneys for the town of Maxton, in which it was 
alleged that certain storehouses situated on the defendant's right-of-way 
in the town of Maxton had not been listed for taxation. 

The complaint was served on the defendant on January 25, 1892, 
and on the 1st day of February following the defendant answered : 
That it had made a true return, and if the storehouses had not been 
returned it was an inadvertence; that defendant had no purpose to 
evade or escape taxation. The defendant also filed the affidavit of its 
road-master, I. T. Elmore, from which it appeared that the storehouses 
mentioned had been returned, but there had been no value placed upon 
them in the return. 

The Commissioners, acting as a board of appraisers, proceeded to 
value said stores and apportion the proportion of said assessment belong- 
ing to the town of Maxton, and notified the defendant of their action, 
with the request that the same be promptly complied with. 

This case was afterwards called for a hearing at a session of the 
Commission held in Raleigh, August 30, 1892, and it appearing that 
the defendant had complied with the action of the Commission, and 
that there is no further complaint, it is adjudged that the action be 
dismissed.

Commissioners,

v. 

The Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company. 

August 31, 1892. 

In this case the plaintiff, Henry C. Herbert, complained that the 
defendant subjected the traveling public to unnecessary and unreason- 
able delay at the point of junction of its Scotland Neck Branch with 
the Albemarle and Raleigh Railroad, and asked that the defendant be 
required to remedy the evil by leaving Kinston one hour later. 

The complaint was filed December 21, 1891, and served December 
23, following. 

The defendant answered January 4, 1892, and filed as a part of its 
answer its time-table showing the delays at the point named during the 
month of November preceding, from which it appeared that the delays 
had not been unreasonable. The defendant also promised to improve 
its schedule at once. 

The case was called for a hearing at a session of the Commission at 
Raleigh, August 30, 1892, and it appearing that there was no need of 
further action, the complaint was dismissed.

Commissioners, 

County Commissioners of Warren, Complainants, 

v. 
The Raleigh and Gaston Railroad Company. 

August 31, 1892. 

In this case the Board of Commissioners on the 3d day of February, 
1892, addressed a communication to the Commission, in which they 
allege that the defendant refused to pay taxes on the following property 
situated in Warren County, viz., section-house and thirty acres of land, 
agent's house and lot at Warren Plains, and asked to be informed 
whether the defendant should pay taxes on said property, if so, the 
course to pursue. 

On the 5th day of February following, the Commissioners addressed 
the following reply to W. B. Fleming, Esq., chairman of the Board of 
County Commissioners : 

"The Railroad Commissioners are only authorized by law to assess 
the property of railroad corporations which is situated on their right-of- 
way, all property situated off the right-of-way must be given in by them 
for taxation to the proper authorities in the county where it is situated, 
just as the property of individuals is given in, and if they refuse to 
list the same, or when listed to pay the taxes assessed thereon, the 
remedies against them for so doing are the same as those against indi- 
viduals, that is to say by advertisement and sale, as in the case of delin- 
quent taxpayers. 

"Thereupon, it appears that your course is to proceed to collect the 
tax as you would against an individual if the corporation should still 
refuse to pay, and let the justice of its exception from liability be set- 
tled by the courts, if it should enjoin the collection. 

"In the matter of taxation the Railroad Commissioners act only as a 
board of appraisers, and hence no authority conferred on them to 
enforce the collection of taxes." 

The case was called for hearing at a session of the Commission at 
Raleigh August 31, 1892, and there being no further demands from 
the complainants, and it appearing that no further action was required 
from the Commission, it was adjudged that the case be dismissed.

State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Keller, Complainant, 

v. 

The Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company. 

August 31, 1892. 

This was a complaint filed by the complainant, Charles W. Keller, 
on the 8th clay of February, 1892, in which he alleged that the defend- 
ant was carrying loaded freight cars on its road from Weldon to Kin- 
ston in front of its passenger coaches, greatly to the annoyance and 
inconvenience of the traveling public, and asked that the evil be 
remedied. The complaint was served February 9, 1892, and the defend- 
ant filed its answer on the 12th of February following, admitting the 
allegation of the complaint, but excusing itself from blame on account 
of the large falling off in business on the line from Scotland Neck to 
Kinston, and promising to resume a daily freight train service, which 
would obviate the necessity of carrying the freight cars with its passen- 
ger trains. 

The case was called for hearing at a session of the Commission at 
Raleigh August 31, 1892, and there being no further complaint, it was 
adjudged that the action be dismissed.

This case was called for hearing at a session of the Commission at

it was adjudged that the action be dismissed.

August 31, 1892. 

This was a complaint filed January 30, 1892, asking relief from 
excessive express charges on freight shipped from Ridgeway, North 
Carolina, to points beyond the limits of the State. 

In other like cases the Commission had called the attention of the 
defendant company to complaints of a similar character, and received 
assurance that the defendant would do all in its power to grant the 
relief asked consistent with a rate of charges that would give any 
reasonable compensation for the service rendered. 

The case was called for hearing at a session of the Commission at 
Raleigh August 30, 1892, and it appearing that the Commission had 
no authority to make any order granting relief, for want of jurisdiction, 
it was adjudged that the action be dismissed.

overcharge on a shipment of shingles from Bridgewater, N. C. 

The Commission addressed the complainant a letter asking a state- 
ment of all the facts in the case, giving bill of lading, freight receipts, 
etc., in order that an investigation might be made. 

The case was assigned for hearing on the 14th day of September, 
1892, and the complainant notified.

This was a complaint, or rather a report, of the unsafe condition of 
the Murphy Branch of the Western North Carolina Railroad. The 
matter was called up by the Commission at a session held at Raleigh

improved by relaying with steel rails and other betterments, the com- 
plaint was dismissed.

State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad

Coward, Complainant, 

v. 

The Richmond and Danville Railroad Company. 

September 14, 1892. 

This was a complaint as to the insecure condition of the Murphy 
Branch of the Western North Carolina Railroad, and also the discrimi- 
nation against passengers from Waynesville west. Up to that point a 
regular passenger train was being run, but beyond it only a mixed 
train. The complaint was filed May 23, 1892, and notice served on 
A. B. Andrews, Vice-President, on May 30 following. 

At a session of the Commission, held in Raleigh on the 30th of May, 
1892, assurances were given by the defendant that the complaint would 
be redressed. 

The case was called for final hearing by the Commission at its meet- 
ing on September 14, 1892, when it appeared that the discrimination 
in passenger accommodation had been corrected, and that the road-bed 
was being improved by the laying of new rails and other betterments, 
but that its condition was not yet up to the standard as demanded by 
the complaint, it is adjudged that the case will not be dismissed, but 
further action for the present suspended.

In this case the plaintiff, W. B. Wilson, a merchant of Greenville, 
North Carolina, complained of discrimination against Greenville and 
in favor of Tarboro, North Carolina, in shipments of car loads of meat 
from Chicago to these places respectively. 

The complaint was filed March 17, 1892, and served on the defend- 
ant on March 29 following. On the 3d day of May the defendant filed 
an answer, showing that the difference between Greenville and Tarboro 
was only two cents on one hundred pounds.

This was a complaint for overcharge on a package of tobacco from 
Oxford to Bentonsville, filed August 9, 1892. 

The case was called for hearing September 14, 1892, when on investi- 
gation it appeared that there was no overcharge and the case was dis- 
missed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Wilmington Refrigerator and Ice Company, Complainant, 

v. 
The Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad Company. 

September 14, 1892. 

This was a case where it was asked of the Commission to raise the 
freight charges on ice from New Bern to Goldsboro, where the same 
was carried on passenger trains. The complaint was filed on March 
21, 1892. 

The Commission had established a rate on ice on regular freight 
trains which was the maximum rate and could not be exceeded. All 
freights sent by passenger trains were allowed a higher rate. The 
Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad had extra space on its express 
car and utilized this to transport ice at the rate fixed for freight trains. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh on August 30, 1892, 
the case was called for final hearing, and it was adjudged by the Com- 
mission that although an extra charge may be made for freight carried 
on passenger trains over and above what was fixed for regular freight 
trains the order was not mandatory and they may carry for less, pro- 
vided they carry for all persons alike. Case dismissed.

This was a case of a small overcharge in passenger fare from Alex- 
ander's to Asheville, and vice versa. Forty-five cents was being"charged 
for a first-class ticket instead of thirty-five cents. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh on September 14, 
1892, the case was called for final hearing, and it appearing that the 
rate of thirty-five cents for first-class and thirty cents for second-class 
was then in effect, the case was dismissed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Westbrook, Complainant, 

v.

September 14, 1892. 

This was a petition filed by Mr. J. S. Westbrook, Chairman of the 
Executive Committee of the Fruit Growers and Truckers' Association, 
asking lower rates on points from Eastern North Carolina to Northern 
cities, and suggesting a rate of ninety cents per crate of thirty-two 
quarts of strawberries, weighing sixty pounds. 

The petition was filed on October 23, 1891, and the answer of a W.'J. 
Crosswell, the Superintendent of the defendant company, was filed 
November 24 following, in which it was alleged that in April, 1889, the 
defendant had reduced the rate from $2.65 per 100 pounds to $2.25 
between the points named in this petition, and had reduced the estima- 
ted weight of crates from sixty-four to sixty pounds each. 

The answer further alleged that the defendant would make further con- 
cessions as soon as it could do so consistently with a satisfactory service. 

Their answer was furnished complainant. 

At a session of the Commission in Raleigh on the 13th of September, 
1892, the case was called for final hearing, and it appearing that no 
further relief was asked, and that the Commission had no jurisdiction 
to grant any order on the original petition, it was adjudged that the 
case be dismissed.

This was a complaint made by parties at Mooresville, charging a

Mooresville, as compared with Statesville. 

The complaint was filed April 18, 1892. 

At a session of the Commission held at Raleigh, June 18, the case 
was called, and it appearing that the Commission had no jurisdiction, 
a letter was addressed to Mr. Drake, General Freight Agent of the 
Richmond and Danville Railroad Company, requesting a correction of 
the same. 

The case was called for final hearing September 14, 1892, when it 
appeared that the Railroad Company having satisfactorily corrected 
the discriminat'on, the case was dismisse 1 . 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of The Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Doughty, Complainant, 
v. 
Atlantic and North Carolina Railway Company. 

September 14, 1892. 

This was a complaint for overcharge in the shipment of a soda 
fountain from Morehead City, N. C, to Boston. It appears that the bill 
of lading issued by the defendant to the plaintiff made a charge of 
$6.84, and when the article reached its destination at Boston an addi- 
tional charge of $14 was demanded Of this injustice the plaintiff 
made complaint to the Commission, which was filed on the 2d day of 
December, 1891, and on that day the Commission addressed a letter to 
the plaintiff, saying that the remedy sought was not within its jurisdic- 
tion, but the Commission would call the attention of the Superintendent 
of the defendant company to the wrong complained of, and request an 
investigation and correction; and the complaint was served on the 
defendant, who asked for the papers and commerced an investigation, 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 605 

which has since been pending, without accomplishing the remedy 
sought. 

On July 16 the plaintiff addressed a communication to the Commis- 
sion, in which he asked that all the papers might be returned to him, 
so that he might prosecute his remedy in the courts, provided the Com- 
mission should still be of opinion that it could not grant an order 
requiring the defendant to refund the overcharge. 

The wrong complained of was the demand by the party at Boston 
for $14 more than the amount fixed by the bill of lading. There was 
nothing wrong in the bill of lading. It did not appear that the defend- 
ant was in any way responsible for this action of the agent at Boston. 
Indeed, the defendant distinctly denied any knowledge of or consent 
to this action, and promised to aid the plaintiff in seeking and obtain- 
ing redress. 

The Commission being of opinion that it was not within its jurisdic- 
tion to grant the relief asked, complied with the plaintiff's wish and 
forwarded the papers to him; and at a session of the Commission in 
Kaleigh on the 14th of September, 1892, the action was dismissed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad

Eugene Albea, Complainant, 

v. 

The Western Union Telegraph Company. 

August 12, 1892. 

JUDGMENT. 

This was a complaint filed February 18, 1892, alleging a violation 
of the tariff rate prescribed by the Commission for the transmission of 
telegraphic messages. 

The plaintiff alleged that the defendant corporation was engaged in 
the transmission of telegraphic messages between Elizabeth City, in 
the State of North Carolina, and the town of Winston, in said State, 
and as such corporation was subject to the act of the General Assem- 
bly to provide for the general supervision of railroads, steamboat or 
canal companies, express and telegraph companies doing business in 
the State of North Carolina; that on or about the 1st of December, 
1891, the plaintiff applied to the agent of the defendant, at said Eliza- 
beth City, for the transmission of a message, consisting of not more 



606 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

than ten body words, from said Elizabeth City to said Winston, and 
tendered to said agent twenty-five cents for said service; that said 
agent demanded sixty-five cents of the plaintiff for said service, and 
refused to send the message unless the plaintiff should pay him said 
sum of sixty-five cents, which plaintiff refused to pay; that said act of 
refusal on the part of the defendant was in violation of the act of the 
General Assembly to provide for the general supervision of railroads, 
steamboat or canal companies, express and telegraph companies doing 
business in the State of North Carolina. 

The plaintiff prayed that the defendant might be required to answer 
the charges of the complaint, and for an order commanding the defend- 
ant to desist from further violations of law. 

The plaintiff did not ask for any recompense. 

The defendant filed answer on 17th May, 1892, denying that it was 
engaged at the time mentioned in the complaint, or is now engaged, in 
the transmission of telegraphic messages between Elizabeth City and 
Winston, or that it was subject to the act of the General Assembly 
creating the Commission. It also alleged that another corporation, 
under the name of the Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Com- 
pany, was engaged in the transmission of messages upon a line extend- 
ing from the town of Edenton and through the said town of Elizabeth 
City, in said State, to the town of Portsmouth and Norfolk, in the Slate 
of Virginia; that the said was, at the time mentioned in the com- 
plaint, and is now, operated and controlled exclusively by the said 
Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Company, and that the last 
named company was not then and is not now operated by or under the 
control of the defendant; that the agent to whom the plaintiff made 
tender of fare was not the agent of the defendant; that the only rela- 
tion between the defendant and the Elizabeth City and Norfolk Tele- 
graph Company is shown by the contract, which was filed as a part of 
the answer; that there was then, and is now, no way of transmitting a 
message from Elizabeth City to Winston except through the said line 
from Elizabeth City to Norfolk, Virginia, and that the shortest way by 
which said message could be transmitted was through the City of Rich- 
mond, in the State of Virginia, by which it would necessarily traverse 
a route through said Sate; that the defendant had violated no law of 
the State, nor any rule or regulation of the Commission; and that the 
matter being one of commerce between the States, the Commission had 
no jurisdiction thereof.

The case was assigned for hearing on April 20, 1892, and continued 
to May 17 following, when the plaintiff appeared and was examined as 
a witness. It was further continued to July 21, 1892, when J. B. Tree, 
the Superintendent of the Southern District of the Western Union Tele- 
graph Company; Charles Guirkin, President of the Elizabeth City and 
Norfolk Telegraph Company, and N. C. Pamplin, Manager of the West- 
ern Union Telegraph Company at Norfolk, Va., appeared and were 
examined as witnesses for defendant. 

The contract between the defendant and the Norfolk and South- 
ern Railroad Company was also introduced in evidence and filed with 
the Commission ; also the contract between the defendant and the 
Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Company; also exhibit "A," a 
book entitled " The Western Union Telegraph Company " Revised Tariff 
and Rules, July, 1891. 

The case was continued to a session of the Commission at Raleigh, 
August 9, 1892, when it was called for a final hearing, and Messrs. 
Strong and Stronach appeared for the defendant. 

The following facts are found by the Commission : 

1. There is a corporation duly organized and incorporated according 
to law T under the name of the Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph 
Company, engaged in the transmission of telegraphic messages upon a 
line extending from the town of Edenton and through the town of 
Elizabeth City, in North Carolina, to the towns of Portsmouth and Nor- 
folk, in the State of Virginia; that the said line was, at the time men- 
tioned in the complaint, and is now, operated and controlled exclusively 
by the Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Company, and was not 
then, and is not now, operated by or under the control of the defendant; 
that the agent mentioned in the complaint, and to whom the plaintiff 
made the tender of the fare for the transmission of the message to 
Winston, was not the agent of the defendant, but was the agent of the 
Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Company. 

These facts are found from the contract between the defendant and 
the Elizabeth City and Norfolk Telegraph Company, and the testimony 
of the witnesses. 

2. That the shortest and only route by which a message could have 
been, or could now be, transmitted from Elizabeth City to Winston, 
traversed in part the State of Virginia. 

3. That just prior to the 19th day of December, 1S88, the defendant 
controlled and operated a line of telegraph along the track of the Nor- 
folk and Southern Railroad Company from the town of Berkley, in the

(Signed) A. R. BREWER, Secretary. 

This agreement made and entered into this 19th day of December, 
1888, by and between the Western Union Telegraph Company of the 
first part, and the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company of the second 
part, hereinafter respectively designated for convenience as the Tele- 
graph Company and the Railroad Company, witnesseth : 

That whereas, the Telegraph Company controls and operates a line 
of telegraph along the Railroad Company's railroad from Berkley, Vir- 
ginia, to Edenton, North Carolina, which telegraph line has heretofore 
been operated under the provisions of an agreement between the Rail- 
road Company and the Southern Telegraph Company, dated the 
fourteenth day of October, eighteen hundred and eighty-three, and it is 
desirable in the interest of the parties hereto that an agreement be 
made between them for the maintenance and operation of said tele- 
graph line, and for the construction, maintenance and operation of a 
telegraph line or any extensions and branches of said railroad; 

Now therefore, for and in consideration of the covenants and agree- 
ments herein contained, the parties hereto have mutually agreed as 
follows ; 

First. The telegraph company agrees to furnish at some point on 
the line of the railroad company's railroad, all poles, wire, insulators 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 609 

and other necessary material, for the construction of a line of poles and 
one wire or more as the telegraph company may require, along any 
future extensions and branches of said railroad, and along any railroad 
hereafter owned, leased or controlled by the railroad company upon 
which the telegraph company may not then have a line of telegraph. 
The telegraph company also agrees to furnish all poles, wire, insulators 
and other necessary material for the maintenance, repair and construc- 
tion of said line of poles and wire or wires along the railroad company's 
railroad between Berkley and Edenton, and along any extension and 
branches thereof and leased or controlled roads. 

The telegraph company further agrees to furnish the use of its main 
batteries for the operation of the wires provided for herein, and also to 
furnish and maintain a wire and cable conductor between Norfolk and 
Berkley connecting at Berkley with the wire thence to Edenton. 

Second. The railroad company agrees to furnish at its own expense 
all the labor to set said poles in the ground and erect the first wire and 
insulators thereon, under the direction of a foreman to be furnished by 
the telegraph company, along any extensions and branches of said rail- 
road, and along any railroad hereafter owned, leased or controlled by 
the railroad company upon which the telegraph company may not 
then have a line of telegraph. 

The railroad company also agrees to furnish at its own expense all 
the labor to maintain the telegraph company's line of poles and wire 
or wirts along the railroad company's railroad between Berkley and 
Edenton and along any extensions and branches thereof, and leased or 
controlled roads in good order and repair, and to reconstruct said lines 
of poles and wires when required by the telegraph company; poles, 
wire, insulators and other materials for such repair and reconstruction 
being furnished by the telegraph company as hereinbefore provided. 

It is understood and agreed that the railroad company shall exercise 
the same care and diligence in the maintenance and repair of the wire 
or wires that the telegraph company has or may have along said rail- 
road for its business, that the railroad company does in the mainten- 
ance and repair of the wire or wires used by it. 

The telegraph company agrees to furnish a foreman to oversee the 
work of construction and reconstruction herein provided for. 

Third. The telegraph company agrees to set apart the existing wire 
erected along said railroad and the first wire erected along extensions 
and branches thereof, for the joint use of the parties hereto in the trans- 
mission of railroad and commercial telegraph business, it being agreed 
39 



610 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

that the railroad company's messages of an important character direct- 
ing the movement of trains, shall have precedence over said joint wire. 

Whenever the railroad business of the railroad company requires the 
exclusive use of said joint wire the telegraph company on receiving sixty 
days written notice, agrees to furnish the material for the construction of 
a wire for commercial business, the railroad company agreeing to fur- 
nish the labor for and pay the expenses of erecting the same, under 
the direction of a foreman to be furnished «by the telegraph company. 

After the erection of said second wire, the first wire shall be set apart 
for the railroad company's railroad business exclusively, and for such 
commercial business as can be done thereon without in'erfering with 
said railroad business. 

In the case of the interruption of either one of said two wires the 
business of both parties hereto shall, as far as practicable, be done over 
the working wire, important railroad messages directing the movement 
of trains having precedence. 

Fourth. All messages of the officers and agents of the railroad com- 
pany, pertaining to its railroad business, may be transmitted free of 
charge on the wire set apart for said business between all telegraph sta- 
tions on the line of said railroad, and between said stations and Norfolk. 

The telegraph company agrees to issue to such officers of the rail- 
road company as may be designated by the President, Vice-President 
or General Superintendent thereof, annual franks authorizing the free 
transmission of messages relating strictly to the railroad business of 
the railroad company's railroad covered by this agreement, originating 
at and destined to points on the telegraph company's lines in the United 
States, beyond or off the line of said railroad, to an amount not 
exceeding five hundred dollars ($500) per annum for the first seventy- 
four (74) miles of railroad owned by the railroad company and occu- 
pied by a telegraph line erected thereon and operated under the pro- 
visions of this agreement, and six dollars ($6) per annum additional 
for each additional mile of railroad constructed, lea-ed or controlled by 
the railroad company and occupied as aforesaid. 

The tolls on all such messages, to and from points beyond or off the 
line of said railroad, shall be calculated at the regular commercial day 
rates of the telegraph company between the points at which such mes. 
sages originate and the points to which they may be destined. And 
the railroad company agrees to pay to the telegraph company one-half 
of its aforesaid rates on all such messages in excess of said amount. 
Settlements to be made yearly. 



COMPLAINTS, DECISIONS, ETC. 611 

It is understood and agreed that the free telegraphic service herein 
provided for applies only to the transmission of messages concerning 
the operation and business of the railroad company's railroad covered 
by this agreement, and shall not be extended to any messages for trans- 
mission by cable, nor to messages ordering sleeping-car, parlor-car or 
steamer berths, merchandise or accommodations for customers of the 
railroad company, the tolls on which messages should properly be 
chargeable to such customers. 

Fifth. The railroad company agrees to transport free of charge over 
its railroad, upon application of the Superintendent or other officer of 
the telegraph company, all persons in the employ of the telegraph 
company when travelling on the business of said company; and also 
to transport and distribute free of charge along the line of its railroad, 
all poles and other material and supplies for the construction, main- 
tenance, operation, repair and reconstruction of the lines and wires 
covered by this agreement, and of such additional wires and lines of 
poles and wires as may be erected under the provisions of this agree- 
ment. Also all material and supplies for the establishment, mainten- 
ance and operation of the offices of both parties hereto at places along 
and adjacent to said railroad. 

And the railroad company further agrees to transport, without 
charge, the poles and other materials and supplies of the telegraph 
company, to be used on its lines beyond or off the line of said railroad, 
to an amount computed at the regular current transportation rates of 
the railroad company, not exceeding two hundred dollars ($200) per 
year for the first seventy-four (74) miles of railroad owned by the rail- 
road company and occupied by a telegraph line, erected thereon and 
operated under the provisions of this agreement, and three dollars ($3) 
per annum additional for each additional mile of railroad constructed 
leased or controlled by the railroad company and occupied as aforesaid. 
And the telegraph company agrees to pay to the railroad company one- 
half of its aforesaid rates on all such transportation of poles and other 
material and supplies in excess of said amount. Settlements to be 
made yearly.

telegraph stations at such places on said railroad as it may deem neces- 
sary, and at all such stations as the railroad company has established 
or may establish, the telegraph company agrees to supply Morse instru- 
ments and local batteries and blank forms and stationery for commer- 
cial business.
