STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 



OFFICE OF THE BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



Raleigh, December 31st, 1895. 

To The Honorable Elias Care, 

Governor of North Carolina. 

Sir: — Pursuant to law the Board of Railroad Commissioners 
beg to submit this their Fifth Annual Report, embracing a complete 
statemeut of all the business done by the different railroads in this 
State during the present year, as well as steamboat, telegraph and 
telephones, together with the valuation of their property as assessed 
for taxation. 

The Commission has carefully heard every complaint, no matter 
how trivia], and adjusted the same. A report of these is also 
annexed. As far as practicable a personal inspection has been made 
of all the railroads, and it has invariably been done where there 
was a complaint either as to the condition of the track or as to 
proper depot accommodations. 

TAXATION. 

The taxable property was increased $537,837 this year over the 
year 1894. Increase since 1890, $12,678,908. 

MILEAGE. 

Including side tracks, there are now 3,616.58 miles of road. An 
increase over 1894 of 34.05 miles. 

Since our last report the following roads or parts thereof have been 
abandoned by reason of their earnings not being sufficient to keep 



IV REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA 

them in repair or by reason of other roads occupying territory so 
contiguous as not to render them a public necessity ; 

Milton and Satherlin. 

Laurel River and Hot Springs. 

Hamilton. 

OVERCHARGES. 

Most of the complaints before the Commission have been as to 
overcharges ; these have in most cases originated by errors of ship- 
ping clerks, and have been promptly refunded when the attention 
of the Company complained of was called to the facts, or by reason 
of the want of a proper understanding of the "joint rate" rule; 
this rule has been so far modified as to leave no excuse for its 
violation in the future. 

It is very gratifying to note the very great improvement as to the 
business of the roads, and as a result only three roads are now in 
Receivers' hands ; the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley, the Marietta 
and North Georgia, extending from Murphy to the Georgia line, a 
distance of 13i miles, and the Norfolk and Western, extending from 
Winston-Salem to Roanoke, Ya., 45.75 miles in North Carolina, and 
Durham to Lynchburg, Ya., 41.69 miles in North Carolina. 

The most important matter concerning the railroads of the State is 
the lease of the North Carolina railroad to the Southern Railway 
Company for a period of 99 years, at a rental in excess of the limit 
as fixed by its charter before the road bed of the same would become 
liable for taxation. The Commission, as a Board of Appraisers, will 
hereafter place this entire property on the tax list as other roads,, 
this being the last which claimed exemption. 

As a matter of public interest, and one which is appropriate to this 
report, we insert the lease of the North Carolina Railroad recently 
made by the directors of the State and the private stock holders to 
the Southern Railway Company. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAS. W. WILSON, Chairman; 
E. C. BEDDINGFIELD, 
S. OTHO WILSON, 

Commissioners, 



NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY, 

TO THE 

SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 



LEASE. 



THIS DEED, made this 16th day of August, 1895, by and 
between the NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY, a 
corporation incorporated by the State of North Carolina, of the one 
part, and the SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, a corporation 
incorporated by tie State of Virginia, of the other part, witnesseth : 

That whereas, it is provided by the nineteenth section of the 
charter of the North Carolina Railroad Company, "that the said 
Company may, when they see fit, farm out their right of transporta- 
tion over said road, subject to the rules above mentioned; and the 
said Company, and every person who may have received from them 
the right of transportation of goods, wares and produce, shall be 
deemed and taken to be a common carrier, as respects all goods, 
wares, produce and merchandise entrusted to them for transporta- 
tion." 

And whereas, by an Act of the General Assembly of Virginia, 
approved Eebruary 20, 1894, the Southern Railway Company is 
empowered, from time to time, to lease, use, operate, consolidate 
with, purchase or otherwise acquire, or be leased, used or operated 
by, or consolidated with any railroad or transportation company now 
or hereafter incorporated by the laws of the United States, or any 
of the States thereof; 

And whereas, it now seems to the North Carolina Railroad Com- 
pany to be fit and judicious and to the advantage of the said Com- 
pany, to "farm out" their entire railroad, with all their franchises, 



VI LEASE OF THE

used, and connected therewith, as hereinafter described, to the South- 
ern Railway Company aforesaid for a term of years : 

Now this Deed further witnesseth, that in consideration of the 
several sums of money, rents, covenants and agreements hereinafter

and delivered, and by these presents doth demise, let, hire, "farm 
out" and deliver, to the said party of the second part, namely, the 
Southern Railway Company, the entire railroad of said paity of the 
first part, with all its franchises, rights of transportation, works and

and right of way incident thereto, situate in the State of North Caro- 
lina, and leading from the City of Goldsboro, in the County of Wayne,

road Company belonging, and necessary, incident and appurtenant to 
the free, easy and convenient operation of the railroad leased hereby, 
and now or heretofore used in that behalf, the same being the pro- 
perty and effects of the party of the first part, which the party of the 
second part as purchaser of the interest of the Richmond and Dan- 
ville Railroad Company, Lessee, now has in its possession as such 
purchaser, excepting specially, from the operation of this lease, the 
building at Burlington in which is the office now occupied by the 
Secretary and Treasurer of the party of the first part, together with 
a rectangular lot on which said building stands, the respective sides 
of which shall not be less than fifty (50) feet distant from said build- 
ing at any point, for the full term of ninety- nine (99) years from and 
after the 1st day of January, 1896, fully to be completed and ended, 
commencing on 1st day of January, 1896, and the North Carolina

perty, rights, privileges, franchises and estate hereinabove "farmed 
out" and leased by the North Carolina Railroad Company aforesaid 
to the Southern Railway Company aforesaid. And for and in con- 
sideration of such demising, letting, hiring, "farming out" and deliv- 
ering of said railroad, works and property, including roadbed, super- 
structure, right of way; and of transportation, dopots, houses, build- 
ings, shops, fixtures, engines, cars, franchises and privileges, and 
other things incident and appurtenant thereto, the Southern Rail- 
way Company, on its part, doth covenant with and oblige itself to 
the North Carolina Railroad Company to pay to it rent as follows : 

From January 1, 1896, to December 31, 1901, two hundred and 
sixty-six thousand ($266,000) dollars per annum, payable as follows: 
one hundred and thirty-three thousand ($133,000) dollars on the 
first day of July, 1896, and one hundred and thirty-three ($133,00)

first part all taxes and assessments lawfully imposed upon the said 
leased property, or upon the franchise of the party of the first part, 
or its income, whether by the State of North Carolina, or any County, 
City, Town or Township thereof, or by the United States. All of 
such taxes and assessments shall be paid by the party of the second 
part, so as to entirely relieve the party of the first part from pay- 
ment of taxes of any nature whatever, during tha continuance of this 
lease, upon the property leased or the franchise of the party of the 
first part, or its income from the lease property. 

To secure the prompt and faithful payment of the said rent as

road and property as herein provided, the said party of the second 



VIII LEASE OF THE 

part doth covenant with and oblige itself unto the said party of the 
first part, to deposit and keep on deposit in the First National Bank,

from year to year, and all the time pending said term, the sum of 
one hundred and seventy five thousand ($175,000) dollars in cash or 
its equivalent, at all times in United States bonds, or other market- 
able securities, acceptable to the directors of said Lessor Company, 
and having a market value of not less than said sum ; which said sum 
of money, or its such equivalent, may be applied by the said party 
of the first, part to the satisfaction and discharge of any such sum of 
money so semi-annually due and remaining unpaid, or of any such 
taxes due and remaing unpaid, or any judgment or judgments recov 
ered in any court of the State, or of the United States, when finally 
adjudicated, for any tort, wrong, injury, negligence, default or con- 
tract, done, made or permitted by the party of the second part, its 
successors, assigns, employee-*, agents or servants, for which the party 
of the first part shall be adjudged liable, whether the party of the 
first part is sued jointly with or separately from said party of the 
second part, provided, that the said North Carolina Railroad Com- 
pany shall give to the Southern Railway Company the notice of suit 
herein provided for ; such notice- shall be given to the Company's 
station agent at either the following places, to-wit : Raleigh, Greens- 
boro or Charlotte or Burlington ; and in case either such application 
of such deposit, then to renew the same from time to time as often 
as such application of any such deposit may become necessary ; but 
any bonds so deposited shall be deposited and held in such manner 
as to enable the said Southern Railway Company to draw the interest 
accruing thereon from time to time as the same shall become due 
and payable: Provided, The said Southern Railway Company shall 
faithfully perform its covenant to pay the semi-annual rent aforesaid 
as it may become due as herein provided, and also, all of such taxes 
or assessments, or judgments as the party of the second part may be 
lawfully liable to pay for the party of the first part, by the terms of 
this lease. And for the consideration aforesaid, the said party of the 
second part doth covenant with and oblige itself unto the said party 
of the first to keep the said Railroad, road-bed, superstructure, depots, 
buildings, houses, shops, engines, cars, fixtures, and other property

delivered in equally as good condition and repair as the property is 
at the date of this lease, or to keep, in the place of the same, like 
things of equally good condition and repair; and to return, at the 
end of the said term of ninety-nine (99) years, or at the termination 
of said lease, to the said party of the first part the said railroad, road- 
bed, superstructure, depots, houses, buildings, shops, engines, cars, 
fixtures and other property, and all and every part thereof, in like good 
condition and repair ; or other property, when any part of said pro- 
perty shall be worn out, destroyed or abandoned, as good in quality 
and substance and in like good order and repair. But there shall 
be no claim or liability during the continuance of this lease, or at its 
termination, by the party of the second part, its successors or assigns, 
upon the party of the first part, its successors or assigns, for any 
improvement of said property conveyed by this lease, over the con- 
dition of the said property at the date of this lease, but all such 
improvements shall be and remain the property of the party of the first 
part, its successors or assigns, subject to the provisions of the lease, 
as hereinafter set forth. And for the faithful keeping and perform- 
ance of the covenant obligation last aforesaid, the said party of the

ditioned for the faithful keeping and performance of said last-named 
covenant.

first part, that the said party of the second part will not at any time 
during said term fix or establish the rates of freight, called "local

and printed by the said party of the second part on this date, and 
the local passenger fare shall not exceed the local rates as fixed and 
established on the date last above named. And for the considera-

property so hired, let, "farmed out" and delivered to the said party 
of the second part, according to the terms and intents of these 
presents.

semi-annually thereafter, for thirty days or more after the same shall 
become due and payable, or if they make such default in the pay- 
ment of any part thereof, or shall fail to pay all taxes and assess- 
ments lawfully made against the party of the first part, which, by 
the terms of this lease, it has agreed to pay for and on account of 
the party of the first part ; or if they fail to keep on deposit such

against the party of the first part, which, by the terms of this lease, 
it has agreed to pay for and on account of the party of the first part, 
and to enter uppn and resume possession of said railroad and all 
said other property, rights, franchises, &c, of every kind and descrip-

for every part thereof, and for the return of the said railroad and 
other property, according to the terms of such covenants, at any 
termination of said term, and provided, further, that the same shall

uary 1st, 1896, by two competent experts, one to be selected by the 
party of the first part, and the other by the party of the second part, 
who shall, in case of disagreement, select an umpire ; and the valua- 
tion and inventory so made and taken shall be final, and shall be 
kept, recognized and acted upon at all times ; and annually in the 
first week in October in each year, if the party of the first part shall 
so require, alike valuation and inventory shall be made and taken by 
like competent experts and their umpire, to be chosen as aforesaid ; 
and in case said railroad and said property are not in like good 
condition and repair as provided in the several convenants as afore- 
said, then the said party of the second part may have until the 
1st of January, next after such default, so to make good said railroad 
and said other property ; and the said party of the tirst part shall not 
have the right to enter and take possession of said railroad and other

such account, if such default in the meantime shall be repaired to the 
satisfaction of said experts or their said umpire. 

It is further agreed by and between said parties, that at any ter- 
mination of said lease and term, whether by its own limitation or 
otherwise, the said railroad and all the said other property of every 
kind whatsoever, shall be valued, and an inventory thereof taken by 
like competent experts and their umpire, to be selected as aforesaid. 

And the said party of the second part doth hereby covenant with 
and oblige itself to the said party of the first part, its successors or 
assigns, to do and perform all acts and things affecting the said rail- 
road or its operation, running or conduct that shall be required or 
enjoined during the continuance of this lease by the laws of this 
State. 

It is further agreed by and between said parties, that if the 
said lease shall be determined otherwise than by its own limitation, 
the said party of the first part shall only be entitled to have the rent 
due at such termination thereof, and to have said railroad and all 
and every part and parcel of said property so returned to it ; or 
damages for failure to do so and indemnity for any loss it may have 
sustained by reason of any default or neglect of the said party of the 
second part as herein imposed. 

It is further agreed by and between the parties, that the said party 
of the second part shall have leave to change any shops, tracks, houses 
and other things in such way as to promote the convenience of ship- 
ment of freights, travel and the safety of the road and property, with- 
out charge to the party of the first part ; and also shall have leave, 
without charge to the party of the first part as aforesaid, to change 
the gauge of the said railroad track ; but should the Southern Rail- 
way Company change the gauge of said railroad track they do hereby 
covenant and agree with the North Carolina Railroad Company to 
change the gauge of said road to what it now is, at the termination

Company. 

It is hereby distinctly understood and agreed by the parties hereto 
that the lease made under date of September 11, 1871, by and between 
the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company and the North Carolina 
Railroad Company shall terminate, as of Dember 31st, 1895, at mid- 






NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD. XIII 

night, and the Southern Railway Company for itself and as the pur- 
chaser of the interest of said Richmond and Danville Railroad Com- 
pany, in respect of said lease and in consideration of the making of 
this lease for a period long beyond said former lease consents to such 
termination in behalf of said Richmond and Danville Railroad Com- 
pany, and the North Carolina Railroad Company, for a like consid- 
eration of the fact that this lease is more favorable to it than the 
former one in the matter of taxes from January 1st, 1896, to Decem- 
ber 31st, 1901, likewise consents to such termination. 

The party of the second part hereby expressly agreeing that the 
exemption from taxation for its property, claimed by the party of the 
first part, may be surrendered by it, but such surrender shall not take 
effect before midnight of December 31st, 1895, and that, thereafter, 
the said property shall be taxable as other property of like kind in 
the State of North Carolina. 

In witness whereof, the said North Carolina Railroad Company, 
by S. B. Alexander, its President, acting for and on its behalf, and 
the said Southern Railway Company, by Samuel Spencer, its Presi- 
dent, acting for and on its behalf, have caused the corporate seals of 
their respective corporations to be affixed hereto, and the same to be 
signed by their respective Presidents aforesaid.

REPORTS AND DECISIONS 

OF THE 

BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Lichenstein & Co., Complainants, ~) 

v. [> Package Rates. 

Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company. J 

January 3, 1825. 

The plaintiff complains of Rule No. 7, which was adopted by the 
Southern Railway and Steamship Association, to take effect January 
16th, 1894. The complaint was tiled November 22nd, 1894. 

At a session of the Commissioners at Raleigh, January 3rd, 1895, 
this complaint was considered, and it appeared that the subject mat- 
ter of the complaint had been already passed upon by the Commis- 
sion, and the injury complained of had been removed. White v. 
Thompson, Terrell et als v. Southern Railway Company and others, 
1894 Report, 215. 

It was adjudged that no further action was required.

Commissioners,

( Jtassengers. 

January 23, 1895. 

This was an inquiry, instituted by the Board of Railroad Commis- 
sioners, on the 20th of December, 1891, growing out of a publication 
which appeared in the Scotland Neck Democrat, and which alleged 



662 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

that the defendant Company failed to supply fire in its waiting 
room in winter, thereby inflicting discomfort upon those who were 
compelled to wait for its belated trains. The publication did not 
mention any particular station but the Commission construed it to 
refer to the station at Scotland Neck. 

The attention of the defendant was called to this complaint and | 
it was asked to investigate the same. On the 2nd January, 1895, 
the defendant answered, and filed a part of its answer, correspond- 
ence with its agent at Scotland Neck, from which it appeared that 
no complaint had been made by the citizens of Scotland Neck. The 
defendant also alleged that there was no cause for such complaint. 

It also appeared from the correspondence filed that the defend- 
ant, through its General Superintendent, John F. Divine, had 
instructed its agent at Scotland Neck, as follows : "Yon will see 
that fires are kept in your waiting rooms at all times when the 
weather is such as to require it." 

On the 4th January, 1895, the Commission addressed a communi- 
cation to Mr. E. E. Hilliard, the Editor of the Scotland Neck Demo- 
crat, advising him of the action taken by the Commission and the 
correspondence with the General Superintendent of the defendant, 
requesting him to point to any particular station where the defend- 
ant had been neglectful of its duty. Mr. Hilliard replied to the com- 
munication that the grievance mentioned did not occur at Scotland 
Neck and that he did not wish to make further complaint. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, January 23rd, 1895, 
this case was called and it appeared that no further action was 
demanded.

casting from Louisville, Ky., to Waddell's, N. C. The complainant 
filed the receipt, as a part of his complaint, from which it appeared 
that defendant had made a charge of $1.00 for 12 lbs. 

The complaint was served on defendant and answer thereto filed 
December 11th, 1894, in which defendant alleged that the charge 
complained of was the regular charge from Louisville, Ky., to Mad- 
ison, N. C, which was the nearest point to Waddell's, where there is 
an express office. 

The Commission, upon reading the answer examined the Inter- 
State rates of the defendant, and found the facts to be as alleged in 
the answer. 

While the rate complained of was Inter-State, the Commission 
investigated the complaint, to discover if any injury had been done 
complainant. It appeared that the rate complained of was not excessive, 
and in accordance with the Inter-State rate of defendant. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, July 13th, 1895, the 
case was called and the complaint dismissed.

On November 1st, 1891, the Firm filed a complaint alleging that 
the defendant had failed to provide a sufficient number of cars to 
ship the merchandise which the Firm desired to transport over 
defendant's line, and that the business of the Firm was thereby suf-

This complaint was at once served on defendant and answer

February 13, 1894. 

The Complainant filed his complaint on the 26th January, 1895, 
alleging that the defendant was discriminating unjustly against 
Stoneville, a Station on defendant's line, and violating the long and 
short haul clause of the Inter-Stale Commerce Act, in that the 
defendant was delivering flour at Madison, N. C, for 29 cents per 
100 lbs. from Woodstock, Ya., while it charged for like service at 
Stoneville, which was six miles nearer on same line, 33 J cents per 
100 lbs. 

The complaint was served and defendant answered denying that 
the rates complained of were in force, and citing its tariff 1610, 
from which it appeared that the rates on flour from Woodstock, Va., 
to Stoneville per barrel in car loads w T as 56 cts., less than car loads 
58 cents ; flour in sacks car loads 28 cents, less than car loads 29 
cents per 100 lbs. 

The Commission was advised also by the general freight agent of 
the defendant that he had explained the matter fully to the com- 
plainant. The complainant addressd a communication to the Com- 
mission saying that the defendant had explained and adjusted the 
discrepancies, which grew out of an error on the part of their agents 
and the agents of the B. &. O. Railroad Company, at the other end 
of the line in quoting the rate incorrectly. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, February 13th, 1895, 
this case was called and it appearing that no further action was 
demanded, was dismissed.

* ' Redemption of Unused 

v V 

n a t a I Mileage Ticket. 

Seaboard Air Line System. ) 

February 13, 1895. 

The complainants filed their complaint January 21,1895, alleging 
that they employed two and at times three salesmen to sell their 
goods in this State, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida; that they 
bought and used mileage tickets for these salesmen over the different 
railroads over which they traveled; that one of these salesmen h-td 
left their service, and they had a mileage book which had been 
bought from the defendant, in his name, and they had applied to the 
general passenger agent of the defendant to allow another of their 
salesmen to use said book or to exchange it for a new oue, the com- 
plainants paying the difference in mileage between this and the new 
one; that the defendant's agent refused to do this. The complain- 
ants asked that defendant be required to comply with this demand 
or to refund the price paid for said book. The complainants further 
alleged that defendant's agent refused to refund the price paid by 
complainants except at a discount of \ cent per mile. 

Upon reading and considering the complaint, the Commission 
addressed to complainants the following: "By reference to the 
agreement signed by you as shown on the back of the mileage ticket 
it appears that the Railroad Company has proposed to carry out the 
agreement as signed between you. We regret that it is not in our 
power to assist you in this matter. At the session of the Legislature 
previous to the last a bill was passed requiring railroad companies to 
redeem all unused tickets at the price for wmich they were sold. The 
last Legislature repealed this law, thereby permitting railroad com- 
panies to enforce such agreements as the one you present. The 
Railroad Commission can make maximum rates, but as to minimum 
rates, our jurisdiction extends no further than to prevent unjust dis- 
crimination." 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, February 13, 
1895, this case was called and it appearing that the Commisr-ion did 
not have jurisdiction of the subject matter of the complaint, it 
was dismissed.

This was a petition filed December 11th, 1894, asking the Commis- 
sion to refuse consent to the discontinuance of the agency at Dabney 
a station of defendant company. The Commission addressed a letter 
to the petitioner asking for a further statement, or particulars, of the 
grounds upon which he based his petition. Thereafter, on December 
25th, the Commission received a reply that petitioner asked to with- 
draw his objections to the discontinuance of said agency. 

It appeared that the defendant had asked the consent of the Com- 
missioners to said discontinuance, and that no objections thereto were 
presented. 

At a session of the Commission, at Raleigh, February 13th, it 
was adjudged that the Commission consent to the discontinuance of 
the agency at Dabney.

February 13, 1895. 

This was a complaint of the rates on melons to Northern markets 
from Dudley, N. C, and other points of that community, asking the 
Commission to use its efforts to secure better rates. 

On the 23d January, 1895, the complaint was served on the defend- 
ant, together with the following communication addressed to the 
defendant, by the Commission : u The Railroad Commission has been 
appealed to by the melon growers of Dudley, N. C, to use its good 
offices in asking at the hands of your company a lower 
rate on melons to Northern markets. These patrons of your road 
say that the present rate denies them a reasonable profit, and they 
beg that you will give them a lower rate in time for planting the 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 667 

crop of this year. This lower rate they say will cause them to 
largely increase their crop. The Commission hopes that you may 
accede to their wish, and give the assurance in time for them to 
extend their operations. Of course the Commission is aware that 
the rate is inter-state, and only make you this suggestion to subserve 
what it conceives to be the interest of the community and of the 
Company." 

To this communication the defendant answered on January 28th, 
1895, through its traffic manager, T. M. Emerson, as follows : "I 
have yours of the 23d in regard to the rate on melons from Dudley 
to Eastern cities. I beg to say that I have had some correspondence 
with the growers in that district, and, within the last few days, have 
had an interview with their representative, at which the matter was 
fully discussed, and I have assured him that we are anxious to do all 
we can to encourage their enterprise and increase their acreage. I 
fully appreciate the interest you take in this matter, and am always 
glad to hear from you on these questions, whether they come imme- 
diately under your jurisdiction or not." 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, February 13th, 1895, 
this case was called for consideration, and it was adjudged that no 
further action was demanded.

The plaintiff complained that about the first of September, 1894, 
a trunk containing wearing apparel, was consigned him at Provi- 
dence, N". C, from Baskerville, Ya., over defendant company's 
express, upon which the charges were prepaid ; that the defendant 
failed to deliver the trunk at Providence, as per its receipt, but 
shipped it to Stems a station on the Oxford and Clarksville Railroad ; 
that defendant had no agent at Providence, and refused to forward 
the trunk to Providence, when requested to do so, unless the com- 
plainant would prepay the charges from Stems to Providence. 

The complaint was served and defendant filed its answer October 
31st, 1894, a copy of which was sent to the complainant. 



668 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

It appeared that the defendant had no office at Providence; and 
no one being there to receive the trunk, it was carried to the next 
nearest office, at Stems, from which point the complainant was 
promptly notified by defendants agent; through error, it was sup- 
posed that freight charges had not been paid, but defendants agent, 
at Stems, ascertained that the trunk had been forwarded prepaid ; 
but complainant then refused to receive the trunk unless it was 
shipped to Providence free of charge. That defendants agent then 
consented to comply with complainants demand and the trunk was 
at once forw r arded to complainant, free of charge. 

At a session of the Commission, at Raleigh, February 13th, 1895. 
this case was called, and the facts appeared as stated, it was adjudged 
that no further investigation or order be made.

from Bethania, a station on the North Western North Carolina Rail-

Robeson county. 

The complairt was served and the defendant answered, through 
its general freight agent, J. H. Drake, December 20th following, 
explaining that the delay was caused by failure of the defend- 
ant's agent at Bethania, to receive in time the through rate, for 
which he had wired. 

While this complaint was awaiting further action, the Commission 
was advised by the complainant that the delay complained of had 
been satisfactorily adjusted. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, February 13th, 1895, 
this case was called and it appeared that no further action was

of leaving the crossing blocked by cars, and doing all the loading 
and unloading from the cars on the main line, taking from thirty to 
fifty minutes to do this work ; that the citizens of Rowland were 
greatly inconvenienced thereby. The petitioner asked that defend- 
ant be required to remove this inconvenience. The petition was

ience complained of should be removed. In the meantime the peti- 
tioners asked to be allowed to withdraw the complaint. At a session

This complaint was filed February 11th, 1895, in substance as 
follows : That the plaintiff is a Mercantile Firm engaged in the 
manufacture of marble in the city of Raleigh, North Carolina; that the 
defendant is a common carrier engaged in the transportation of 
passengers and property, by rail, between Winston, N. C, and 
Raleigh, N. C; that on or about January 21st, 1895, the defendant 
Company contracted with the said firm to transport a car load of 
rough marble from Winston to Raleigh for the price of $16 
per car load of 25,000 pounds; that in the loading of said car about 



672 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

1500 lbs. of dressed marble was put in with the rough marble, the 
agent of the defendant Company at "Winston saying to the said firm 
that this small amount of dressed marble would make no difference 
in the rate ; that the said firm was required to pay $35 per car load 
for the transportation of said marble, in violation of the said con- 
tract entered into between said firm and the defendant company. 

The plaintiff demanded judgment that the defendant be required 
to make recompense to said firm in the amount of the excess charged 
by the defendant, to wit : the sum of $35.72. 

The complaint was served on the defendant and the answ T er 
thereto by the defendant through its Division Freight Agent, J. R. 
Ruffln, was filed February 19th, 1.895. The defendant denied that 
it had charged any excess, and alleged as follows : 

That on October 27th, 1894, it had named plaintiff a rate of 14 cts, 
per 100 lbs. on rough stone or sawed but not dressed, value limited 
to 20 cts. per cubic foot (car lots); that on October 31st, it wrote 
plaintiff that it could make him a rate of $16 per car of 25,000 Bbs. 
on rough stone, Winston to Raleigh ; that as defendant understood 
it, the contents of the car in question, was principally rough or 
sawed marble ; that the car was loaded by the shipper, and defend- 
ant's agent did not see all its contents ; that the rate of $16 per car 
was not quoted to apply on marble or the class of stone shipped ; 
that the rate charged by defendant is the current rate via the South- 
ern Railway and if the shipment had moved via that line the same 
amount of freight would have been collected ; defendant filed a let- 
ter from its agent at Winston, F. B. Kearns, as a part of its answer. 

The plaintiff filed with the Commission as a part of the complaint, 
the bill of lading, the way bill, freight receipt and the correspond- 
ence between the plaintiff and the defendant's Division Freight 
Agent. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, February 20th, 1895, 
the case w T as called for consideration and the following communica- 
tion addressed to the defendant : "The case of Cooper Brothers, 
against the Norfolk and Western Railroad Company was considered 
at this session of the Commission. 

"The Commission advises the defendant that the complainant has 
suffered an overcharge as set out in the complaint. 

"It appears to the Commission that the company should recom- 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 673 

pense the complainant in the sum of $35.72, which is the amount of 
the overcharge. 

"The Commission is of the opinion that the defendant ought to 
have complied with the rate of $16 per car. We can find nothing 
in the admitted facts or in the classification to show that the com- 
plainant loaded the car with a material to vary the rate from $16 
per car. The Commission hopes that the defendant company will 
make good this recompense without further inquir\. But if it 
desires to be heard further, the Commissien will be in session on 
Wednesday the 29th day of February next when it can appear and 
show cause why it should not pay to the complainant the excess 
mentioned." 

At the request of defendant, the case was continued to a session 
of the Commission at Raleigh, March 5th, 1895, when it was called 
for hearing; W. A. Cooper, of the plaintiff Firm, and J. R. Ruffin, 
defendant's agent, appearing as witnesses. 

The following facts are found by the Commission : 

1st. That defendant in answer to an enquiry of plaintiff, quoted 
its rates as follows, by letter dated, Winston-Salem, N. C, October. 
27, 1894 : "Marble or granite not lettered (including parts of monu- 
ments, gravestones and tombstones) boxed or crated value limited to 
40 cents per cubic foot released, less car loads 25 cents, car loads 20 
cents per 100 lbs., stone rough or sawed but not dressed, value lim- 
ited to 20 cents per cubic foot, car load 14 cents per 100 lbs 

2nd. That thereafter on October 31st, defendant quoted rates to 
plaintiff as follows : 

"We can now name you a rate of $16 per car of 25,000 lbs. on 
rough stone, Winston to Raleigh. This is a very low rate, so 1 hope 
you will favor us with the business provided you make the ship- 
ment." 

"3rd. That in January, 1895, plaintiff shipped a car load weighing 
45,000 pounds, from Winston to Raleigh, consisting of rough and 
dressed marble, sawed, but' billed as rough marble; that this ship- 
ment was made in consequence of the rate quoted as before men- 
tioned, of $16 per car ; and defendant's agent at Winston agreed 
that the load might all be classified as rough marble, making no 
distinction on account of some small amounts of dressed or sawed 
stone and other articles which were loaded in the car. 
43 



674 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

"4th. That in the classification, rough stone includes rough marble, 
and applies as well to marble as to granite. 

"5th. That plaintiff was required to pay 14 cents per 100 ft^. on 
said car load, to wit : the sum of $65.80 ; while the charge at the 
rate of $16 per car would have been $30.08 making a difference of 
$35.72. 

u 6th. That said special rate of $16 per car from Winston to Raleigh 
for rough stone was a reasonable rate and is approved by the Com- 
mission. 

"From these facts the Commission concludes that the defendant 
has charged the plaintiff $35.72 more than it ought to have charged 
on said shipment, and that the defendant ought to make recompense 
to the plaintiff in the said sum of $35.72." 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, March 25, 1895, this 
case was called for a final hearing and the facts appearing and the 
conclusion of the Commission being as set out above, it is considered 
and adjudged by the Commission that the defendant make recom- 
pense to the plaintiff in the sum of $35.72 within thirty days from 
notice of this order.

Glevdon and Gulf Railroad Co., (

Lost Freight. 



June 7, 1895. 

The complaint in this case was filed May 2nd, 1895. 

On November 9th, 1894, the plaintiff had made to him a consign- 
ment of one bale of cotton weighing 465 pounds at Haw Branch a 
station on defendant Glendon and Gnlf's line of road to be transmitted 
to Gulf the terminus of the Glendon and Gulf Railroad and the 
station on line of Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley Railway company. 
The plaintiff complains that the cotton had not been delivered to him, 
and asked that defendant be required to make him safe for the loss 
sustained. 

The investigation begun with the former company. On the 3rd 
day of May, 1895, copy of complaint was served on defendant 
Glendon and Gulf railroad company, and on May, 11 1895, answer 
thereto was filed by W. A. Guthrie, Attorney, as follows : 

The Glendon & Gulf Railroad Company answering the petition of 
J. M. McIver, the above named petitioner, says: 

Answering the allegations of the petition, respondent says that on 
9th day of November, 1894, it received at Haw Branch, a station on 
its road, a bale of cotton weighing 456 pounds (and not 465 pounds, 
as is alleged) from one Wm. Phillips, to be transported to the peti- 
tioner at Gulf, North Carolina. 

That said bale of cotton was transported by respondent to Gulf, 
North Carolina, and there put into the depot of the Cape Fear & 
Yadkin Valley Railway Company for delivery to the petitioner. 

That under a contract arrangement between the Glendon & Gulf 
Railroad Company its proper corporate name should be styled, "The 
Glendon & Gulf Mining & Manufacturing Company" with the said 



682 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Railway Company. The said respond- 
ent, the Gleridon & Gulf Mining and Manufactering Company,having 
no depot of its own at Gulf, North Carolina, said depot is now, and 
for sometime preceding said 9th day of November, 1894, was using 
said C. F. & Y. Y. depot for its railroad purposes at Gulf, North 
Carolina, both of said companies jointly paying the salary of M. P. 
Ballard, who was then and is now station agent for both companies 
at Gulf, North Carolina. That the respondent is informed and 
believes said M. P. Bullard inadvertently, on said 9th day of Novem- 
ber, 1894, after receiving said bale of cotton into the warehouse of 
the depot at Gulf, North Carolina, by some oversight on his part, 
shipped it away that day by the C. F. & Y. Y. Railroad to some 
other point. The respondent has diligently endeavored to trace said 
bale of cotton and to procure its return to the petitioner, but has not 
been able to do so. 

The respondent is advised that under the circumstances it ought 
not to be held liable to the petitioner, and in any event, if responsible 
at all, Receivers of the C. F. & Y. Y. Railway should be made parties 
to this proceeding and share in such responsibility, caused by the 
inadvertence of said joint agent M. P. Bullard. 

The respondent attaches hereto and respectfully submits the 
affidavit of Rentz Sanders who, from personal knowledge, testifies 
and corroborates the matters above set forth. Further answering 
said petition, the respondent s «ys the petitioner has prior to this pro- 
ceeding, presented to the respondent a bill, dated January 5th, 1895, 
which is hereto attached as an exhibit, putting the weight of said bale 
of cotton at (456) four hundred and fifty-six pounds at 5 cents per 
pound, making its value, as then claimed, $22.80, and not $30.22, as 
now claimed. And except as is herein admitted, the allegations of 
said article III are denied. 

IY. Further answering the petition, the respondent says it, from 
the first time this matter came to its knowledge, earnestly endeavored 
to adjust the matter and proposed to the petitioner to leave it to dis- 
interested arbitrators, and petitioner refused respondent's proposition. 

Whereupon respondent prays: 

1. That Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley Railway's Receivers be made 
parties to this petition. 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 683 

2. That if there is any legal liability anywhere in the matter this 
respondent be exonerated. 

3. That if there is legal liability about it, that the Receivers of the 
Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley Railroad may at least share it with this 
respondent. < 

4. That this petition be dismissed and petitioner be remitted to his 
action at law, to try the question of legal liability and ascertain by 
the evidence of a jury the value of said bale of cotton. 

WM. A. GUTHRIE, 

Attorney for G. & G. M. & M. Co., 

Respondent. 

On May 11th, 1895, copies of complaint and answer of defendant 
Glendon & Gulf Railroad Company were served on the Cape Fear & 
Yadkin Yalley Railway Company, and answer thereto filed by Geo. 
M. Rose, Attorney, May 30th, 1895, as follows : 

The Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley Railway Company answering so 
much of the allegations of the Glendon and Gulf Railroad Company as 
applies to it, and in answer to the application of said Glendon and 
Gulf Railroad to have this answering company made a party to these 
proceedings, says : 

1. That it denies so much of allegation III of the answer filed by 
said Glendon & Gulf Company as charges "that said bale of cotton 
was transported by respondent to Gulf, North Carolina, and there put 
into the depot of the Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley Railway Com- 
pany," but on the contrary alleges that said bale of cotton was never 
delivered to said Company, or its agent at Gulf, and was never in 
the possession of or under the control of this answering Company or 
any of its agents. 

It admits that N. P. Bullard acts also as agent for the Glendon 
& Gulf Company at Gulf depot, and for the transfer of business 
from one company to the other for transportion he acts as the agent 
of both companies, but it denies that the Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley 
Railway has anything to do with, or is jointly liable for, any pure 



684 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

local business over that road, and it avers that if said bale of cotton 
was ever delivered to said K-. P. Bullard, as charged by the Glen don 
& Gulf Company, it was delivered to him as the local agent of said 
company, and not as the joint agent of both, the freight originating 
and terminating on said Glendon & Gulf Railroad, and not being for 
transportation over the line of this answering company. 

And for further answer to the allegations contained in article III 
of the answer filed by the Glendon & Gulf Railroad Company, the 
respondent denies that on the 9th day of November, 1894, or any 
other day, that the agent of this company, "by any oversight on his 
part shipped it (said cotton) away by the Cape Fear and Yadkin 
Yalley Railway Company to some other point," but on the contrary 
avers that said cotton was never handled by this respondent, or any 
of its agents, and that this company is in no way liable, either 
jointly, or otherwise, for said alleged loss, and for proof of the same 
it refers to the letter of the complainant of date, April 26, 1895, 
attached to the complaint and also to the affidavit of N. P. Bullard, 
agent at Gulf, and Gus. A. Murchison hereto attached. 

Wherefore, the respondent asks that it be not made a party to 
these proceedings, and if made, that the same be dismissed as to it. 

GEO. M. ROSE, 
Attorney for C. F. <& Y. V. Company. 

The case was called for hearing June 7th, 1895. The defendant, 
Glendon & Gulf Railroad Company, failed to show delivery of con- 
signment to either plaintiff or defendant Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley 
Railway Company. It was adjudged and so ordered that defendant 
Glendon & Gulf Railroad Company refund to plaintiff the value of 
consignment of cotton as claimed,

shipped from Mackey's Ferry to New York. The capacity of the 
car was to be 60,000 lbs and he was to pay $50 for the same. After 
putting into the car 1000 melons the railroad company demanded 5c 
additional for each melon. The complainant wished information as 
to the right to make this extra charge.

On July the 10th the following reply was made to Mr. Knowles. 

"In reply to your favor of the 17th relative to the rate on water 
melons we cannot advise you definitely not knowing your contract. 
If the contract was for a car at $50.00 with a limit of 1000 melons 
then you would have no right to put in more without extra 
charge even if the capacity was more. But if the contract was for 
a car with no limit then you would have a right to fill to its full 
capacity."

You will remember that in 1893 when the valuation of this road

an increased valuation on the same, stating that there were parties 
in Johnston County who would pay more for the road than for this 
valuation. 

"Upon this statement the Commission raised the valuation to $3,000 
per mile, which including the side tracks, &c,, w T ould make it $3,128 
per mile. From the report made by the owners of the property it 
appears that it would not justify a further increase. If however, you

September 3, 1895 

Plaintiif filed this complaint on July 8, 1895, complaining of 
■excessive charge on a shipment of peas from Raleigh to Aurora. The 
shipment had to be made via Newbern and from that place by steamer 
to Aurora. This case was called on September 3rd, and on investiga- 
tion it appearing that the shipment having to pass over two roads 
and then transferred to steamer, the charges do not seem to be 
excessive.

This was a complaint filed July 16th, 1895, alleging loss of freight

was ascertained that by error the articles were billed to Henderson. 
On this discovery shipment was promptly forwarded to proper des- 
tination.

that shipment had been received by plaintiff and no further action 
was demanded. Case was dismissed.

This was an investigation on the part of the Commission as to the 
freight and passenger accommodation at Aberdeen. 

On April 22nd, 1895, the Commission addressed a communication 
to defendant requesting that better accommodations be given. 

On May 22nd, answer was received from General Manager John 
H. Winder saying that a new station would be built at an early day. 

At a session of the Commission, September 17th, 1895, this case 
was called, and it appearing that the accommodations demanded had 
been given, case was dismissed.

v. y Unused Ticket. 

C. F. & Y. Y. Railway Company. ) 

October 11, 1895. 

Complaint filed September 29th, 1895. The facts as presented 
were as follows: The complainant bought a ticket from Washington 
to Mount Airy over the Southern Railway, and Cape Fear and Yad- 
kin Y alley Railway. He used this ticket to Greensboro, and con- 
cluded to go to Winston and return to Washington ; this he did on 
another ticket. He came from Washington via Winston to Rural 
Hall on the Cape Fear & Yadkin Yalley Railway, and presented the 
detached coupon from his first ticket in payment for fare to Mount 
Airy, which was refused by the conductor and fare collected. The 
complainant asks the Commission to require the Cape Fear & Yadkin 
Valley Railway to refund the amount paid by him for the unused 
portion from Greensboro to Mount Airy. 

Upon investigation it appears that upon the face of the ticket it is 
noted that the same is void if coupons are detached, which was a 
contract and cannot be set aside by the Commission. The Rail-

road Company offered to refund the fare paid from Rural Hall to 
Mount Airy when the used part of the ticket was returned. This 
being all that the law requires the case was dismissed October 1st, 

1895.

Complaint filed September 13th, 1895, alleging an overcharge on 
shipment of molasses from Wilmington to LaG-range. Upon inves- 
tigation it appears that the excessive charge was caused by error in 
routing and that defendant company was not responsible for same.

the Commission to order the establishment of a depot, and for this rea- 
son was not acted upon until November 14th, 1895, when it appeared 
that business had increased and the 'railroad company had agreed to 
and was then erecting the depot.

This complaint was filed August 6th, 1895, and alleges that the 
defendant, the Roanoke Railroad and Lumber Company, were charg- 
ing for freight and passengers without license to do so, and that there 
was no uniformity as to charges, thereby causing discrimination and 
that no act of incorporation had ever been obtained by said defend- 
ant. 



698 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

On November 11th the defendant by letter, herewith attached, 
replied denying all of the charges and asking for a hearing. On 
November the 16th the case was called by the Commission and its 
consideration postponed until November 26th, 1895, and parties 
interested cited to be present. The final hearing as fixed above was 
held by the Commission when R. S. Colin, Secretary of the Roanoke 
Railroad & Lumber Company, of Norfolk, Virginia, was present repre- 
senting said Company. 

Affidavits were filed by the following : 

Samuel Boyner, of Washington, North Carolina. W. H. Matthews, 
of Plymouth, North Carolina ; J. H. Skittlethorpe, of Plymouth, North 
Carolina; C. J. Norman, of Plymouth, North Carolina, and W. S. 
Spruill, of Plymouth, North Carolina. 

The four first witnesses testified as to having paid fare and seen 
fare paid by divers parties and that the money so derived was turned 
over to one Surry Parker. W. S. Spruill the last named testified 
that he was an employee of the defendant and had collected freight. 
R. S. Cohn, Cecretary, was then examined as a witness on behalf of 
the Railroad Company who put in evidence a contract made by the 
defendant with one Surry Parker, in which it is stipulated that the 
said Parker was to manage and use the Railroad to deliver logs from 
a described territory to the mills of the defendant and to receive an 
agreed price for the service, but the right was reserved by the defend- 
ant to use the main line of their road for transportation of articles 
other than logs cut under this contract (a copy of contract is attached 
marked "A." 

The witness further testified that until this suit was started he w T as 
ignorant of the fact that any charges had ever been made by any one 
for freight or passengers. He admitted that such charges had b^en 
made but contended that it was done without his knowledge or con- 
sent and in fact in violation of his positive orders and that no funds 
thus collected had ever been received by the Treasurer of the defend- 
ant company and from the facts as thus proven the Roanoke Railroad 
and Lumber Company could in no manner be held responsible for the 
charges made. The witness further testified that a passenger car was 
attached to the lumber train but that it was intended only for 
employees. The evidence in full is herewith attached marked "B". 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 699 

The following facts are found by the Commission : 

1. The Roanoke Railroad & Lumber Company was regularly char- 
tered under the laws of North Carolina. 

2. That a contract was made with Surry Parker, of Plymouth, 
North Carolina, to operate the road exclusively for the purpose of 
delivering logs to the mill of the defendant company. 

3. That the agents of Parker collected fares and made their returns 
to said Parker. 

4. That W. S. Spruill, an employee of the railroad itself, collected 
freight. 

From these facts the Commission concludes that the defendant can- 
not be heard to say that it is not responsible for the acts of Surry 
Parker, though these acts may have been committed in violation of 
positive orders, and it is adjudged by the Commission that the defend- 
ant company is liable to all rules and regulations, as prescribed by 
them, and will be assessed for taxation as other roads for the years 
1894 and 1895. 

By order of the Commission.

v. | Make Report. 

Marietta and North Georgia Railroad Company. J 

The Marietta and North Georgia Railroad Company having failed 
to make report as required, the Commission address a communication 
as follows to Hon. E. W. Pou, Solicitor, 4th Judicial District : 

Raleigh, November 26th, 1895. 
"Dear Sir : 

"By virtue of the provisions of the Act of the General Assembly 
of North Carolina, ratified the 5th day of March, 1891, and known 
as the Railroad Commission Act, section 17 thereof reads as follows : 
'That every officer, agent or employee of any railroad company who 
shall wilfully neglect or refuse to make and furnish any 
report required by the Commissioners for the purpose of this Act, or 
who shall wilfully or unlawfully hinder, delay or obstruct said Com- 
missioners in the discharge of the duties hereby imposed upon them, 



700 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

shall forfeit and pay a sum not less than one hundred dollars nor 
more than five thousaud dollars for each offence, to be recovered in 
an action in the name of the State. A delay of ten days to make 
and furnish such report shall raise the presumption that the same was 
wilful.' All railroad corporations duly incorporated by and subject 
to the laws of this State, are required by this Commission to make, 
annual reports of their business in accordance with blank form fur- 
nished. The Marietta and North Georgia Railroad Company having 
been furnished with the necessary blanks, and their attention having 
been repeatedly called to the fact that the law requires this report to 
be furnished on or before the 15th of September of each year, and 
for a neglect of this duty they became liable to the penalties as pre- 
scribed in section 17 of the Act creating the Commission as quoted 
above. This is to notify you that said Company has neglected or 
refused to make this report and thus set at defiance the rules of this 
department as well as the laws of this State, and have thereby ren- 
dered itself liable to the penalty hereby imposed. 

"Your attention is respectfully called to this with the request that 
you collect as the law requires this penalty imposed by us." 

By order of the Commission.

Board of Railroad Commissioners, 
Circular No. 43.] Raleigh, September 6,1895. 

Your attention is called to Rule 28, which reads as follows : 

"On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule 1, originating 
and terminating in this State, which shall pass over the whole or 
portions of two or more roads, not under the same control, the max- 
imum rates charged on such shipments shall not be greater than the 
sum of the local rates on such freights, less ten (10) per cent., for the 
distance hauled over each road. The total rate thus ascertained on 
such freights, from the point of shipment to the point of destination, 
shall be divided in such proportions between the roads over which 
such freights pass, so as to give to each road interested in the ship- 
ment its local rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the distance such ship- 
ment is hauled. Nothing in this rule shall be construed to prevent 
the total of any joint rate made under this rule from being divided 
in such proportions between the roads interested in the same as they 
may agree upon, but a failure to so agree between the roads inter- 
ested shall in no way affect the total joint rate to be charged and 
collected on, or work delay in the transportation of such freights, or 
be a subject of appeal to the Commission by the roads at interest." 

A strict compliance with this rule is desired, and all your rates 
issued not conforming to this rule are herereby ordered cancelled.
