STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 



OFFICE OF THE BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



Raleigh, December 31, 1896. 
To His Excellency Elias Cark, 

Governor of North Carolina. 

Sir : — In compliance with law the Railroad Commissioners respect- 
fully submit this their Sixth Annual Report. 

Since our last report the mileage in the State has been increased as 
follows : 

Caldwell and Northern 10.60 Miles. 

Hendersonville and Brevard 21.60 

Aberdeen and West End 7.25 " 

Total Main Line mileage in North Carolina 3,445.43 " 

The taxable property was increased during the year $1,491,548. 
Prior to the organization of the Commission as a Board of Apprais- 
ers the valuation of the railroad pioperty in the State was placed at 
$li\424,540. The valuation for the year 1896 is $26,576,096.99, an 
increase since the establishment of the Commission of $14,151,556.99. 

From this it appears that about one-eighth of the taxes of the State 
is paid by the railroad companies. 

All complaints, however trivial, have been adjusted by the Commis- 
sion to the satisfaction of the complainants as well as to the corpora- 
tions, as is shown by the fact that no appeal has ever been taken from 
its rulings. The number of complaints have been very small, con- 
sidering the vast amount of business done by the parties interested, 
and in no case was it shown that the matter complained of resulted 
from an intentional disregard of the laws of the State or the rules of 
the Commission, but simply clerical errors. 

The business of the country was during the year greatly disturbed 
by a war of rates. As a general rule these reduced rates applied to 
competitive points outside of this State only. To prevent this dis- 
crimination the Railroad Commission had notices served upon all 
the companies having a cut rate in force, to appear before it and 
show cause why these low rates should not cover all points in this 
State on the respectve roads and be made permanent, and also to 
reduce the local rates in this State in the same proportion. From 



IV 



REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA 



investigation made, it appeared to the Commission that the rates now 
in force were "just and reasonable," and such as were contemplated 
in the Act creating the Commission, and that the continued war meant 
only ruin to their respective corporations. 

The following tables, compiled from the reports of the Inter-State 
Commission and such State reports as were accessible, are given, show- 
ing the basis from which our conclusions were drawn :

Group VJ. Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and parts of Missouri and of the Dakotas, 



RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. V 

It is clear, from the above statement, that railroads comprising 
Group IV. (within the States of Virginia, part of West Virginia, and 
North and South Carolina) handled a very much smaller passenger 
business per mile of railroad than the railroads in any other section 
of the United States east of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. On 
the other hand, the average receipts per passenger per mile in Group 
IV. are only slightly in excess of the receipts in othei sections of the 
country where the volume of traffic per mile of road is from two to 
seven times as great as in Group IV. 

The same conclusion applies to the passenger earnings of the lines 
of the three leading systems in North Carolina, the average rate per 
passenger per mile obtained being somewhat less than the average 
rates upon all railroads in Group IV. 

It must be borne in mind that in arriving at the average rates in 
Groups I., II., III. and VI. there is included a very large amount ot 
commutation passenger business between large cities and their sub- 
urbs at very low rates. Eliminating this class of business, the averages 
would be much higher than those shown. 

A statement which follows shows local rates in different States, 
varying from 4 cents per mile in Florida to 3 cents in Pennsylvania 
and 2f cents in Massachusetts. When it is considered that the popu- 
lation in Massachusetts is 309 per square mile and of Pennsylvania 
123 per square mile, as compared with a population of only 33 per 
square mile in North Carolina, the established rates of 3i first-class 
and 2| cents second-class in this State are certainly relatively very 
much lower than the rates of 3 cents and 21 cents respectively in 
Pennsylvania and t Massachusetts. 

Comparing the passenger traffic of important railroads of the North 
and West with the traffic of the roads in North Carolina, it will be 
seen that the passenger rates charged in this State are now very much 
lower, in proportion to the volume of traffic, than the rates in other 
sections of the country. 

The roads of Southern Railway, Atlantic Coast Line, Seaboard 
Air-Line and Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley in North Carolina 
during the year 1895-6 handled 36,250 passengers per mile of road, 
from which the earnings were $801.41 per mile of road, and the 
average rate of fare 2.21 cents per mile. 



VI REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The Pennsylvania Railroad Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad 
Company carried 205/211 passengers per mile of road, or nearly six 
times as many as the roads in North Carolina, and earned 
from this source $4,118 per mile of road, or five times as much as 
the roads in North Carolina. Yet in spite of the enormous vol- 
ume of traffic handled by the Pennsylvania Railroad the latter com- 
pany receives a local rate of fare between Philadelphia and New 
York of 2.778 cents per passenger per mile, which is in excess of the 
second-class local rate charged in North Carolina. There is no 
second-class rate in Pennsylvania. 

The rate between Washington and New York, a distance of 225 
miles, is $6,50, or 2.876 cents per mile. 

The average rate obtained for the carriage of all passengers, 
including suburban and commutation passengers, on the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad Division, for the year 1895, was 2 007 cents, which is 
only about 10 per cent, less than the average obtained by the rail- 
roads in North Carolina, while the volume of traffic handled by the 
Pennsylvania Railroad, as above stated, was five times as great per 
mile of road as the volume handled by the roads in North Carolina. 

The New York Central Railroad, while on its main line a local 
rate of two cents per mile is charged, is able to earn from passenger 
business $5,722 per mile of road, or nearly six times as much as the 
roads mentioned above, and handles an average of 302,000 passengers 
per mile of road, which is seven times the volume of passenger busi- 
ness handled by these companies. 

The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway, operating 6,150 
miles of railroad, earned last year from passengers $6,147,878, car- 
ried 260,821,497 passengers one mile, being 42,410 passengers per 
mile of road, and about $1,000 earnings per mile of road, the last two 
items being more than the traffic and earnings per mile of road of 
the roads in North Carolina. The average rate per passenger per 
mile, however, obtained by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
was 2.357 cents, or nearly 7 per cent, more than the average rates 
obtained by the railroads in North Carolina.

and right to charge such rates for carrying such freight 
as they possessed before the passage of this act : Pro- 
vided further ', however, that upon the complaint of any 
person or persons, corporation or corporations, to said

under the laws of this State or organized under the laws 
of another State and doing business in this State, the 
said Commissioners shall investigate said complaint, 
and, if the same be sustained, it shall be the duty of said 
Commissioners to bring said complaint before the Inter- 
state Commission for redress in accordance with the pro- 
visions of the act of Congress establishing said Interstate 
Commerce Commission : Provided further, that the 
Railroad Commissioners conjointly with such companies 
shall have authority to make special rates for the pur- 1^^ 1 £f*®| Jf 
pose of developing all manufacturing, mining, milling ^H^^ove 11 ^ 
and internal improvements in the State: Provided 
further, that nothing in this act shall prohibit railroad 
or steamboat companies from making special passenger Special excur- 

, r . sion rates, &c.

RULES OF PRACTICE 

IN 

CASES AND PROCEEDINGS 

[as amended.] 

BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 



PUBLIC SESSIONS. 

1. The general sessions of the Commission for the hearing of con- 
tested cases will be held at its office in the Agricultural Building, 
Raleigh, N. C, on such days and at such hours as the Commission 
may designate. Sessions for receiving, considering and acting upon 
petitions, communications and applications relating to business before 
the Commission, and also for considering and acting upon any busi- 
ness of the Commission other than contested cases, will be held, 
unless otherwise directed, at its said office in Raleigh, at 11 o ? clock 
a. m., on Wednesday of every week. When special sessions are held 
at other places such regulations as may be necessary will be made 
by the Commission. 

PARTIES. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be 
done by only a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if 
it relates to joint tariffs, or matters in which two or more carriers 
doing business under a common control, management or arrangement 
for a continuous carriage or shipment are interested, all the carriers 
constituting such line must be made parties. A complaint may 
embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated separately, in 
the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the 
several carriers or lines. Persons or cairiers not parties may apply, 
in any pending case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be 
heard upon the questions involved. 

1—3 



34 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

GENERAL RULES. 

PROCEEDINGS BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 

3. All petitions and complaints made before the Commission for 
redress of alleged grievances, must plainly and distinctly set forth 
the grounds of complaint ; the items being numbered and objections 
all set forth in writing. In like manner all defences must be dis- 
tinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as above stated. 
These specifications, whether of complaint or defence, may be accom- 
panied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by 
any suggestion as to the proper remedy of policy, and may be veri- 
fied by the affidavit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken 
before any person authorized to administer oaths in North Carolina, 
and when the complaint or petition is verified, then the answer 
thereto shall be verified, and the verification shall conform to the 
rules prescribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verification 
of pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attor- 
ney, or by written argument, upon such written statement being 
first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insuffi- 
cient to show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an 
answer, serve on the complainant notice for a hearing of the case on 
the complaint ; and in case of the service of such notice, the facts 
stated in the complaint will be taken as admitted. A copy of the 
notice must at the same time be filed with the Commission. The 
filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency 
of the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be 
made at the hearing. 

SERVICE OF PAPERS. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the oppo- 
site parties to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any 
party shall have appeared by attorney the service upon the attorney 
shall be deemed proper service upon the party. 

AMENDMENTS. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may 
be allowed by the Commission, in its discretion, to any petition, 
answer, or other pleading in any proceeding before the Commission. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 35 

ADJOURNMENT AND EXTENSION OF TIME. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the 
application of parties in the discretion of the Commission. 

STIPULATIONS. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the Commissioners may, 
by stipulation, duly signed by them and filed with the Secretary, 
agree upon the facts, or any portion of the facts, they deem to be 
involved in the controversy, which agreed statement shall be regarded 
and used as evidence. It is desirable that the facts be thus agreed 
upon whenever practicable. 

HEARINGS. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the Commis- 
sion will assign a time and place for hearing the same, which will 
be at its office in Raleigh, N. C, unless otherwise ordered. Wit- 
nesses will be examined orally before the Commission, unless testi- 
mony be taken or facts agreed upon as otherwise provided in these 
rules. The petitioner or complainant must in all cases prove the 
existence of the facts alleged to constitute a violation of the act, 
unless the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail 
to answer the complaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be 
proved by the carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases 
of failure to answer, the Commission will take such proof of the 
charge as may be deemed reasonable and proper, and make such 
order thereon as the circumstances of the case appear to require. 

WITNESSES AND DEPOSITIONS. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued 
by any member of the Commission in all cases and proceedings 
before it, and witnesses will be required to obey the subpoenas served 
upon them requiring their attendance or the production of any books, 
papers, tariffs, contract*, agreements or documents relating to any 
matter under investigation or pending before the Commission. 
When a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or 
other documentary evidence, special application must be made to 
the Commission therefor, specifying the documentary evidence 
desired. When a cause is at issue on petition and answer, each 
party may proceed at once to take depositions of witnesses in the 



36 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

manner provided by Section 1357 of The Code of North Carolina, 
and transmit them to the Secretary of the Commission without 
making any application to or obtaining any authority from the 
Commission for that purpose. 

PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the Commission either 
party may submit proposed findings of fact for the consideration of 
the Commission, which findings must embrace only the material 
facts of the case supposed to be established by the testimony. 

REPORTS. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of 
North Carolina shall file in the office of the Commissioners quarterly 
reports of its gross earnings upon a printed form (B). 

POSTING TARIFFS. 

13. Each railroad company doing business within the State of 
North Carolina shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective 
stations, in a conspicuous place, a copy of the schedules of freight 
and passenger rates prescribed for said road by the Commission, 
together with a copy of the Commissioners' Classification, and a 
table of distances between stations, giving name of each station. 
And when any change in said schedule of rates or classification is 
made, either by the Commission or by any railroad company, a copy 
of said change shall be immediately furnished the office of the Com- 
missioners, and shall also be posted in the same manner as the above. 

14. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases 
specified) apply in either direction. 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 37

STANDARD PASSENGER TARIFF. 

First Class. Second Class.

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF PASSENGERS. 

1. Each passenger shall be entitled to baggage not exceeding one 
hundred and fifty pounds. 

2. No more than the schedule of passenger rates shall be charged 
where the ticket office at any station shall not have been open for a 
reasonable time before the departure from a station of the train 
upon which the passenger intends to be transported. 

3. At junction points, where the incoming trains arrive so near 
the leaving time of the out-going train that it is not practicable for 
a passenger to procure a ticket, no more than the schedule of pas- 
senger rates shall be charged. 

4. Railroad companies are authorized to collect the exact mileage 
for passenger fares if they shall make the necessary change to enable 
them to do so; but, if not, no more than the nearest amount ending 
in 5 or shall be charged. 

5. No railroad company shall be allowed to charge more than ten 
cents for full or half-rate between regular stations when the fare 
would be less than that amount : Provided, where the distance is 
not greater than two miles or under, the maximum charge for first- 
class tickets shall be ten cents, and five cents for second-class tickets. 

6. No more than the standard passenger tariff shall be charged 
passengers from flag stations or other stations where tickets are not 
kept on sale. 

7. When, in consequence of the uncertain time of arrival or 
departure of a delayed train, it is impracticable for tickets to be 
purchased, no more than the regular standard passenger tariff shall 
be charged. 

8. Where a railroad company has provided agents and offices, 
ready and open for the sale of tickets, and the passengers, for want 



38 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

of proper diligence, fail to supply themselves therewith, befoie get- 
ting on the train, then ten cents additional fur eacli passenger twelve 
years old and over may be demanded and collected for all distances 
not greater than ten miles, and twenty cents in like manner for all 
distances not less than ten nor greater than twenty miles, and thirty 
cents in like manner for all distances over twenty miles. Half these 
rates for each passenger over five years old and under twelve years 
may in like manner be demanded and collected : Provided, however, 
offices at way stations may be closed one minute before the arrival 
of trains. 

9. The Commission will consider applications for an advance or 
reduction in the standard tariff for the transportation of passengers, 
but no change of rates shall be of effect or put in force until ratified 
by the Commission : Provided, that this rule shall not be construed 
as placing any restriction on the privilege of railroad companies to 
make special rates on excursion trains, or to issue what are called 
" commutation or mileage tickets :" Provided, no unjust discrimina- 
tion is practiced. 

10. Tickets on sale at any office in a city must be kept pn sale at 
the depot ticket-office of the same railroad at the same prices. 

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

12. The fare in bleeping cars shall not exceed $1.00 for 100 miles 
or less. From 100 to 150 miles, $1.50 ; between 150 and 200 miles, 
$2.00. When a lower berth with the upper berth not lowered is 
desired, this is subject to special contract. 

13. Railroad companies in computing passenger rates between 
stations where fractions of a mile are to be considered, will calcu- 
late for the nearest even number of miles. Example : For a distance 
of 10.19 miles or under, charge for ten miles ; for 10.50 miles or 
over, charge for eleven miles, and so on. 

14. It shall be the duty of each Railroad Company to bulletin at 
every telegraph station along*its line, and other stations if possible, 
ten minutes in advance of the schedule time of arrival of its trains, 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 39 

whether such train is on time, and if behind its schedule time to 
state, as near as can be approximated, the time of its arrival. 

15. On all mixed trains, carrying passengers, where two coaches 
are attached, first and second-class tickets must be sold. 

Where only one coach is attached, only second-class rates shall be 
charged, unless the coach has separate apartments, then first and 
second-class rates may be charged. 

16. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the 
Railroad Commission shall provide such means or appliances as may 
be necessary to secure the careful handling of and to prevent injury 
to any parcel of baggage to which a check may be affixed, as pro- 
vided in Section 1970 of The Code. 

That at all minor stations, where no proper appliances are sup- 
plied, and no regular depot hand is employed, the train hands shall 
be required to assist the baggage-master, and lift with care all bag- 
gage from the car doors. 

17. All "Railroad Companies, in addition to the usual bell cord, 
shall place a safety cord in each coach of the regular passenger 
trains, running through the entire length of the same. 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and 
control, by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same com- 
pany, shall, for purposes of transportation, in applying this tariff, 
be considered as constituting but one and the same road, and the 
rates shall be computed as upon parts of one and the same road, 
unless otherwise specified. 

DISTANCES. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every 
possible distance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain 
what shall be the limits of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) 
miles has, accordingly, been fixed as the limit for a change of freight 
rates for all distances less than one hundred miles; and ten (10) 
miles for all distances over one hundred miles. The Commissioners 
reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme cases 
which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter 
of our rules. 



40 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred 
(100) miles, the following rule will apply : When the mileage does 
not end in or 5 the nearest mileage so ending shall govern the 
rate. Illustration : For a distance of twenty-seven miles charge 
for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty-eight miles charge for 
thirty miles. 

4. "When freight is transported any distance greater than one 
hundred miles, if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) 
miles group above shall govern the rate. Illustrations : For one 
hundred and twenty-one miles charge for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distances under twenty miles or over two hundred and 
fifty miles, a reduction of rates may be made without making a 
change at all stations short of two hundred and fifty miles : Pro- 
vided, however, that when any railroad shall make a reduction of 
rates for distances over two hundred and fifty miles, the same shall 
apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by the same 
company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a 
greater distance. 

REGULATIONS CONCERNING FREIGHT RATES. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum 
rates, which shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may 
carry, however, at less than the prescribed rates : Provided, that if 
they carry for less for one person, they shall for the like service 
carry for the same lessened rate for all persons except as mentioned 
hereafter ; and if they adopt less freight rates from one station, they 
shall make a reduction of the same per cent, at all stations along 
the line of the road so as to make no unjust discrimination as 
against any person or locality. But when there are between any 
two points in this State two or more competing roads not under the 
same management or in the same system, then the longer line or 
lines, in order to give said points the benefit of competition, may 
reduce the rates between said two points below the standard tariff, 
without making a corresponding reduction at all stations along the 
lines of said roads : Provided, said reduction shall not make the 
rates less than the standard tariff rates for the shortest line between 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 41 

said points : Provided, further, that before taking effect, the pro- 
posed change of rates shall be submitted to and approved by the 
Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger 
trains may be one and a-half miles that for first-class freight by 
ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any 
express, or other company, decline or refuse to act as a common car- 
rier, to transport any article proper for transportation by the" train 
for which it is offered. 

9. Railroad companies may collect twenty-five (25) cents as a 
minimum charge on a single shipment, however small. 

10. No railroad company doing business in this State shall permit 
a blockade of any class of freights on account of any arrangement 
existing between it and other railroad companies as to the transpor- 
tation of freight according to percentages or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any 
bonus be given, or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall 
be uniform to all, and public. 

12. The rates specified for Ores, Sand, Clay, Rough Stone, Com- 
mon Brick, Bone, Lumber, ShingTes, Laths, Staves, Empty Barrels, 
Wood, Straw, Shucks, Hay, Fodder, Corn in ear, Tan-bark, Turpen- 
tine, Rosin, Tar, Household Goods, are maximum rates, but the 
roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all such rates 
are exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to such 
rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car- 
load shipments of classes L, M, N, O and P, or to load car-load ship- 
ments of naval stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid 
by shippers. 

14. Extra Handling. — The charge for handling extra heavy 
articles, may be as follows, viz. : 

Under 2,000 pounds, no charge for extra handling. 
For 2,000 lbs. and under 3,000 lbs., $ 3 00 for extra handling. 
For 3,000 " " " 4,000 lbs., 5 00 for extra handling.

For 6,000 " " " 7,000 lbs., 10 00 for extra handling. 

For 7,000 and over in proportion. 

15. Fertilizers. — This term embraces the following and like 
articles, when intended to be used as fertilizers : Ammonia Sul- 
phate, Bone Black, Bones ground or dissolved, Castor Pomace, or 
Fish Scrap Guanos, Alto Vella, Fish, Navassa, Navassa Lump, 
Peruvian Soluble Pacific, Nitrate Cake, Plaster of Paris, Potash — 
German Salts of, Muriate of, Sulphate of — Salt Cake, Lump and 
Ground Phosphate, Soda — Nitrate of and Sulphate of — Tank

16. Vehicles designed for transportation at carrier's risk must be 
properly protected by the shipper with sufficient covering or packing 
from all liabilities to injure from fire, weather, chafing, or other injury. 

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments 
exceed the charge per car load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other 
merchandise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are 
in good shipping condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper 
packing and intelligent, plain marking, and accompanied with 
orders for immediate shipping. 

19. Car-Load Pates apply to a shipment of a car load or more 
made by one shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of 
delivery, to the same consignee. 

ESTIMATED RATES. 

20. [gifPLumber, Coal, Lime, Brick, Stone, and all articles for 
which estimated weights are given in Classification (except Live 
Stock, Ale and Beer, and empty Ale and Beer packages, L. C. L.), 
will be taken at actual weight when the weight can be ascertained, 
but when the weight cannot be ascertained, will be charged at the 
following estimated weights. This is not to interfere, however, with 
the duty of Receiving Agent to weigh, if possible, and correct to 
actual weight :

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered 
by a percentage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase 
on the standard tariff shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced 
classification ; but in cases in which the classification of any article 
is raised by percentage, railroad companies which are allowed an 
increase on the standard tariff shall not apply said increase to the 
already increased classification, but only to the standard tariff. 

22. (gUPWhen any article is too bulky to put in a box car, it shall 
be subject to special contract. 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car load is 20,000 
pounds, unless otherwise specified. For loads above 20,000 pounds, 
pro rate at car-load rates charged. A car load of green wood is 
eight cords. A car load of dry wood is nine cords. A car load of 
lumber (and all articles embraced in lumber) is 24,000 pounds. A 
car load of any article enumerated in Class P, except wood and 
lumber and articles included in lumber, is 25,000 pounds — shippers 
to load and unload : Provided, that when a car is loaded over its 
marked capacity by the shipper, the railroad companies are left free 
to charge for the excess a rate that will effectually stop a practice 
fraught with so much danger to life and property. 

24. The regulations of the railroads as to demurrage or detention 
of cars are matters of police, with which the Commission will only 
interfere upon complaint of abuse. 

25. All roads under the same or different management shall make 



4tt BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

just and reasonable rates for switching and exchange of business at 
connecting points. Kates now in force are continued. Any pro- 
posed change must first be submitted to the Commission. Any 
charge now in force and shown to work a hardship will be corrected. 

26. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this 
State must be kept open each day ( Sundays excepted ) for the receiv- 
ing and delivery of freight as follows: From April 1 to September 
30, between the hours of 7 o'clock a. m. and 6 o'clock p. m. From 
October 1st to March 31st, 7:30 a. m. and 5 o'clock p. m., with an 
intermission in each case of one honr, from 12 o'clock nOon to 1 
o'clock p. M. 

27. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in 
length may charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed 
for ten miles. 

28. On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule 1, originat- 
ing and terminating in this State, which shall pass over the whole 
or portions of two or more roads, not under the same control, the 
maximum 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 ascer- 
tained 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 inter- 
ested in the shipment its local rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the 
distance such shipment is hauled. Nothing in this rule sliall 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 interested shall in no way affect the total joint 
rate to be charged and collected on, or work delay in the transpor- 
tation of such freights, or be a subject of appeal to the Commission 
by the roads at interest. 

29. When railroad rates are affected by water competition, the 
railroads may reduce their rates between points so affected without 
being required to reduce intermediate rates: Provided, however, 
that if complaint is made that such competition rates unjustly dis- 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 45 

criminate against other places or persons, the Commissioners will 
investigate and rule in each case. 

30. Whenever any goods, or articles of freight of any kind, shall 
be received by any common carrier in this State to be delivered to 
any consignee in this State, and a portion of same shall not have 
been received at the place of destination, the carrier shall not 
demand any part of the charges for freight or transportation due for 
such portion of the shipment as shall not have reached the place of 
destination. The carrier shall be required to deliver to the con- 
signee such portion of the consignment as shall have been received, 
upon the payment or tender of freight charges due upon such por- 
tion, as provided by Chapter 495, Laws 1893. 

31. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of 
freight to unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding 
the same to its destination. 

32. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two 
routes over connecting lines to destination, it shall be the duty of 
the railroad company making shipment to forward same by the 
shortest route, unless the rate charged over the longer route does 
not exceed that of the shorter; or unless otherwise ordered by the 
shipper. 



The regulations in regard to freight rates, as well as the per cent, above Standard 
Tariff, must not he enforced to their full limit in any case, or on any class, if it would thereby 
cause a rate in excess of that existing May 20, 1891. 

All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers within the 
jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the law preventing unjust 
discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 



EXPLANATORY NOTE. 

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class 
opposite to the distance, if it ends in (and if not then opposite the 
next greater distance), will be found the rate required. Example : 
To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing, weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word clothing, in the classification, is seen its 
class, 1 ; in the freight tariff under Class 1, opposite the next greater 
distance, 260 miles, is seen the rate 65 cents; in the column "Miles," 
5 signifies five miles or under; 20, twenty miles or over 15, and 
so on.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any Class in the Standard Tariff is raised or 
lowered by a per cent, the following rules must be observed : 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of Classes C, 
D, F, J or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the 
following examples will indicate : 

Ex. 1. — Standard Rate 6.5 

25 per cent, added 1.6 



Total 8.1 From which deduct fraction, leav- 
ing desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard Eate 9.5 

20 per cent, added 1.9 



Total 11.4 Substituting 5 for the fraction, the 

desired rate is 11.5 cents. 
Ex. 3. — Standard Rate 8 

20 per cent, added 1.6 



Total 9.6 Substituting 5 for the fraction, the 

desired rate is 9.5 cents. 
Ex. 4. — Standard Rate 5.5 



25 per cent, added 1.3 



Total 6.8 Adding a unit instead of a frac- 
tion, the desired rate is 7 cents. 

Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other Class 
than those already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent 
and estimate half a cent or more as one cent, thus: 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 47 

Ex. 1. — Standard Kate 17 

20 per cent, added. .„ 3.4 

Total 21.6 Deducting the fraction, the desired 

rate is 20 cents. 
Ex. 2.— Standard Rate 18 

20 per cent. added.._. 3.6 

Total 21.6 Estimating the fraction as a unit, 

the desired rate is 22 cents. 
Third. — In making reductions, observe the same manner of plac- 
ing figures before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate 
per car load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car load, and 
estimate their charge pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION 

OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the first day of April, 1891, 
no change of freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their 
present location, nor the suspension of the sale of tickets, or the 
receiving or forwarding of freights from stations now in use for such 
purposes, will be permitted without the consent of this Commission 
published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construc- 
tion of depot building must be filed in the Railroad Commission 
office, with all information needed for a full and proper understand- 
ing of all interests to be affected thereby. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE 
TRANSPORTATION OF LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are 
used simply to get the rating on Live Stock. To illustrate: One 
Horse, Mule or Horned Animal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 
pounds of any kind of second-class freight at carrier's risk and fourth- 
class at owner's risk. Therefore, the freight charges for fifty miles 
on one Horse, Mule or Horned Animal is the same as on 2,000 
pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the Stan- 
dard Tariff, carrier's risk, '28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5.60, and at 
owner's risk, 20 cents per 100 pounds, or $4.00.

EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



EULES. 



1. Graduated Rates apply to matter weigh- 
ing less than 100 pounds when the rate is 
under $2.00 (I) per 100 pounds and to matter 
weighing less than 50 pounds when the rate 
is $2.00 (I) or more per 160 pounds. Example : 
—Between points where the rate per 100 
pounds is $1.75 (H) a box weighing 73 pounds 
must he charged foi at the graduated rate 
under $1.75 (H), which makes the proper 
charge on " over 70 to 75 pounds " $1.50. 

Packages exceeding 7 pounds, carried by 
more than one company, graduate for each 
company unless otherwise instructed. 

2. When the rate between any two points is 
not given in the graduated rates, use the next 
higher rate for making price, but do not 
charge more than for 100 pounds at the act- 
ual rate. Example :— The correct charge for 
75 pounds at 80 cents per 100 pounds would be 
80 cents, and not $1.00 according to the gradu- 
ate on 75 pounds at $1.00. If the rate exceeds 
$20.00 (CC) per 100 pounds, charge pound rates, 
but never less than the $20.00 (CC) graduated 
rate for same weight. 

3. When the rate per 100 pounds is $2.00 (I) 
or more, charge pound rates for 50 pounds or 
over ; but the charge for less than 50 pounds 
in weight must not be greater than the 
charge for 50 pounds. If less than $2.00 ( I) per 
100 pounds, charge graduated rates. 

Two or more packages weighing each 20 
pounds or over forwarded by one shipper at 
the same time to one consignee, may be 
charged for on the aggregate weight as 
above. 

Packages weighing less than 20 pounds 
each, shipped as in the foregoing section, 
may be aggregated, provided they are esti- 
mated and charged for as weighing 20 
pounds each. Actual weight only must be 
entered on the way bill. 

If articles of different classes are aggre- 
gated, the charge must be made at the rat e 
applying to the highest class. 

To properly carry out the above provisions 
in regard to aggregating the weights and 
charges on two or more packages sent by one 
shipper to one consignee, receiving clerks 
and wagon men are hereby instructed that 
in all cases when two or more articles are 
shipped at the same time to one address, to 
mark distinctly on each and every article 
the number receipted for and the hour of the 
day, thus ; 3 pkgs. 11 A. m., 2 pkgs. 4 p. m. 

AH mattter must be charged for at actual 
gross weight at the time or shipment, unless 
otherwise specially provided for. Estimated 



weights on shipments usually made with ice 
are only to be applied when ice is used. 
When no ice is used gross weights must be 
charged. 

4. Extra Rate Charges.— On matter sub- 
ject to extra rate, as one and one-half or 
double rate, find graduated rate according 
to tariff, and then add one-half, or double it, 
as required. Example :— If a package weighs 
25 pounds rated at double rate, and the rate 
to destination is $1.00 (E) per 100 pounds, the 
charge for 20 to 25 pounds is 50 cents, double 
this— $1.00— is the proper amount. 

5. Valuation Charges.— When the value 
of any merchandise shipment (C. O. D. or 
otherwise) exceeds $50.00, the following addi-

r\ T^ n t> ^ \ P>EPOT. 

Ohio River and Charleston Railway Co., J 

January 1, 1896. 

The citizens of Patterson Springs filed a petition before the Com- 
mission January 21, 1896, asking for better station accommo- 
dations for freight and passengers at that point. 

The defendant answered the petition January 30th following, and 
filed as part of its answer statement showing the passenger and 
freight earnings for the year ending December 31, 1895. The pass- 
enger earnings for the year showed only$67.45. 

At a session of the Commission January 1, 1896, the case was 
called for hearing, and the Commission was of the opinion that the 
business of the place would not justify the expense of additional 
improvements, and so adjudged, that the relief asked should not be 
granted.

Two complaints of overcharge on messages, made and filed on the 
24th of October, 1895, the other on the 26th, by Chas. F. Warren, of

were sent over the Washington & Tarboro and Newport & Beau- 
fort lines, private corporations, and that there w r as an overcharge, 
which was ordered refunded. The complaint was made by Mr. 
Warren, not for the small overcharge, as stated by him, but to cor- 
rect a violation of the rules of this Commission, which otherwise 
would have not been known. 

January 3, 1S96, case being called and it appearing that the over- 
charge had been refunded, the case was dismissed.

ant company but through prejudice.

This was a complaint filed October 29, 1895, by E. L. Hedrick, com- 
plaining of damages by reason of a delay on a shipment of machinery 
from Charlotte to Taylorsville. It appeared that the Statesville

Commission held that this was not allowable, and that the plaintiff 
was entitled to the damages claimed.

rn r^ (OF rROPERTY. 

Ihe Commission. ) 

January 30, 1896. 

This was a petition filed June 30, through John H. Small, Attor- 
ney for Petitioners, as follows : 

"Your petitioner, ' The Roanoke Railroad and Lumber Company,' 
respectfully represents that it is a corporation duly incorporated 
under the laws of North Carolina ; that the main purpose and busi- 
ness of your petitioner is the manufacture of pine lumber, and in 
pursuance thereof it owns and operates a steam saw-mill located at 
Bayside, Beaufort County, N. C, a saw-mill located in Plymouth, 
Washington County, N. C, and another steam saw-mill located near 
the city of Norfolk, State of Virginia; that in the prosecution of its 
business it is necessary to own bodies of standing and growing tim- 
ber, and in order to transport the said timber, after it is cut down, 
expeditiously and in sufficient quantity, your petitioner has found it 
necessary to construct a railroad with iron track from Pinetown in 
Beaufort County to the town of Plymouth in Washington County; 
that said railroad is narrow-gauged, being of the gauge of 36 inches, 
and its length is about twenty miles ; that said railroad is used 
and operated exclusively by your petitioner for its own private busi- 
ness and in no manner as a common carrier ; that your petitioner 



172 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

does not transport over its said road either passengers or merchan- 
dise or other freight for hire; that during the year 1895 your Hon- 
orable body assumed the jurisdiction as a Board of Appraisers of the 
said railroad of your petitioner, and, as your petitioner contends, 
without due authority in law. 

" Wherefore your petitioner prays your Honorable body to revoke 
the former order of your Board, so that the said railroad of your 
petitioner may be listed with the local list-takers of the counties 
of Beaufort and Washington, in the same manner as the other prop- 
erty of your petitioner is listed under the existing provisions of law." 
Tlie matter was heard June 30, 1896, and reply directed as follows : 
" Your petition asking that the Railroad Commission allow the 
property of the Roanoke Railroad and Lumber Company to be listed 
with the local list-takers of the counties in which the property is 
located, is received, and the same has been laid before the Commis- 
sion. I am instructed to say that for the year 1895, it being shown 
that your company had been doing business as common carriers, 
the Commission assessed the property for taxation. Your petition 
sets forth that the company is no longer charging for the transpor. 
tation of freight or passengers ; this being the case, the Commission 
will take no jurisdiction in the matter, but will notify the county 
officials of this decision, so that the property maybe listed as desired 
in petition."

iff during the last year had hauled and delivered on the road a large 
quantity of ties, hauling them a distance of 6 or 7 miles, expecting to 
get the regular contract price, 33 cents each. 

Plaintiff asked the Commission to require the defendant to pay 
him the amount of the expected and agreed price, 33 cents per tie. 

The Commission replied to plaintiff that it had no jurisdiction in

This was a petition by citizens living at and in the neighbor-

warehouse at Whitakers, and also passenger accommodations ; that the 
present building is not sufficient to accommodate and furnish storage

facilities at Whitakers, and have decided, after thoroughly investi- 
gating the matter, that wt will build a new depot at Whitakers, and 
instructions will be given that this be done without any unnecessary 
delay."

c ^ „ \ Rates on Fruits, 

southern Express Company. ) 



February 18, 1896. 

This was a petition filed by Baxter and others, Fruit Growers at 
Ridgeway, Warren county, which is as follows : 

" Seeing a notice in the papers that the Soul-hern Express Company 
are to appear before your Board on 10th February next, to show cause 
why they should not reduce their rates, we, the undersigned Fruit 
Growers at this point, respectfully desire to plice before your 
Honorable Board our ground of complaint in regard to what we 
consider the exorbitant and excessive rates we are compelled to 
pay the Express Company for the transportation of our fruits to the 
Northern markets. Before we ship we have to sign a release and 
guarantee ; so that it matters not to the Express Company what 
happens, such as accidents, delays, want of sufficient room in cars at 
Weldon, &6. They have to get their pay whether the fruit sells for 
anything or not. 

" Twenty-Five (25) years ago the express rate to New York was 
$2.50 per 100 lbs. Crates cost us $1.50 each. Picking 2 cents per 
quart, an 1 strawberries sold from 20 cents to 50 cents per quart. 
Now the berries from this point sell from 5 to 10 cents per quart, 



REPORTS AKD DECISIONS. 175 

and we think we are getting a fair price if we get the 10 cents. 
Crates now cost 32 cents each, and the pickers get \\ cents per 
quart. You will note that the selling price is \X\\ of what they 
were, the crates one-fifth of what they were. The picker gets 
25 per cent, less, and the Express Company, though carrying, say at 
least ten times the quantity, has only reduced its rates 10 per cent. 
(25 cents per 100 lbs.) 

The cost of putting a 32-quart crate of berries in New York is as 
follows:

do,) the shipper at present rates would have 3 cents per quart left, 
out of which he has to pay all costs of cultivation, guano, &c. 
Last year (1895) our express rates were to 

New York & adjacent : $2.25 per 100 lbs. 

To Philadelphia, " 2.00 

To Baltimore, " 1.50 

To Washington, " 1.25 

And we were compelled to quit shipping to all these markets, leav- 
ing around this one point about 500 bushels of strawberries, because 
we could not pay the rates and have anything left. We cannot but 
think that the Express Company can afford to give us a rate on 
fruits of 

$1.50 per 100 Tbs to N. Y. and Philadelphia, 
1.00 " 200 " Baltimore and AVashington, and other 
points in proportion. 

''The highest price obtained on strawberries from this pla<-e in 1895 
was 13c. per quart, which was f>r a few crates at the commencement; 



176 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

within three days price was down to 10 cents and within one week 
was down to 7 and 8 cents and then down to 5 cents which means 
a loss. 

"We enclose you herewith some few acct. sales showing that the ship- 
pers on these shipments got back $302.86, out of which they had to 
pay for picking and crates $176.90, thus leaving them $123.83, out 
of which they have to pay all expenses of cultivating, guano, &c.,&c, 
While the Express Company on these shipments got $241.08, just for 
carrying them a few hours on their cars. No risk, bat all guaranteed 
before shipped. 

"From this depot last year (1895) we shipped by express over 
3,000 crates of berries, but with little profit to the growers. The rail- 
road and express companies say they want to build up and encourage 
the fruit industry of the State. But does it look like it ? For these 
are stubborn facts placed before you, and not little fancy sales at high 
prices, such as are often published to sell land or boom a place. Take 
the average sales through the season, and the heavy express charges 
we have to pay, and which, if continued, will kill the industry as 
far as this and adjoining sections are concerned. Unless some relief 
can be obtained many will be compelled to quit the business; that 
relief must be in the shape of better facilities and reduced express 
rates. The figures will readily show T that all other items have come 
dowm with the times. We can if necessary furnish you with hun- 
dreds more of these account sales, but think those sent will convince 
your Honorable Board of the justice of our complaint." 

The Traffic Manager was served with a copy of this petition, and 
cited to appear at the office of the Commission on February 18, 1896, 
to show cause, if any, why the petitioners should not have the relief 
asked. 

This was a matter of Inter-state Commerce, and the Commission 
had no jurisdiction to make an order in the matter, but was assured 
by the defendant company that it was anxious to encourage the fruit- 
growing interest of the State, and would take the matter up at once 
with a view to revising the schedule of rates to Northern markets.

March 9, 1896. 

This was a petition from each of the towns of Williamston, James- 
ville, Robersonville and Plymouth filed through Wheeler and Martin? 
Attorneys at Law, complaining of the service on the Plymouth 
Branch of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, as follows : 

" The schedule time for leaving Rocky Mount for Plymouth is 2:55 
P. M., the time of arrival at Plymouth 9 P. M., distance 73 miles, 
requiring passengers to be on the road six hours and five minutes, 
and more frequently than otherwise the train is from one to two 
hours late, the time being taken up at the various stations in dis- 
charging and receiving freight, shifting cars, killing time, &c. 

" 2nd. And especially do we call your attention to the delay of 
passengers bound to various points on the said road east of Parmele, 
the arrival time at Parmele being 6:45 P. M., and arrival time at 
Plymouth 9 P. M., being two hours and fifteen minutes to make thirty- 
six miles, and frequently so much behind, arriving at Plymouth at 11 
P. M. We complain at the same time of the schedule from Plymouth 
to Tarboro ; schedule time for leaving Plymouth 6 A. M., arriving 
at Tarboro 10:25 A. M., requiring four hours and twenty-five 
minutes to make the distance of fifty-five miles, and often so much 
behind as to arrive at Taboro at 12 M. and later." 

On February 5, 1896, copies of complaint were served on defend- 
ant, and on February 27 answer was filed through General Manager 
J. R. Kenly, as follows : 

" As it is our desire to accommodate our patrons and to meet the 
wishes of the Commission as far as we can do so, I have to 
advise that we shall try the experiment of running a passenger train 
between Rocky Mount or Tarboro and Plymouth, and trust the 
business will be sufficient to justify our keeping the train on per- 
manently. 1 shall take the matter up at once and arrange to put 
the train on as soon as I can do so."

munication alleging that he bought guano by the car-load, and that 
defendant would allow but 24 hours for the unloading of cars, greatly 
to his inconvenience, and i charge of $1.00 per day for the excess 
time ever 24 hours. 

The Commission replied to plaintiff as follows : 

" You state that you were allowed only 24 hours in which to unload 
fertilizers. You are entitled to 72 hours. I herewith give you a 
copy of rule, which is as follows: 

" ' A charge of $1.00 per day will be made for detention of cars

company refuse to redeem unused ticket or allow transportation on 
same. Upon examination of ticket a letter was addressed to plaint- 
iff as follows : u It seems that this was a limited ticket and sold at 
a reduced rate. There is no law to compel the railroad company 
to refund to you for the unused portion of ticket. The act in 
regard to unused tickets is ,as follows : * That when any unused 
round-trip ticket is sold by any railroad company it shall be the duty 
of said company to redeem the unused portion of said ticket by 
allowing to the legal holder thereof the difference between the cost 
thereof and the price of a one-way ticket between the stations for 
which the said round-trip ticket was sold.' In accordance with

to Burlington, and shipments passed Burlington on the route to 
Durham. The complaint was filed February 22, 1896, served on the

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh March 31, 1896, this

had changed its rates on coal so as to give the same rates to Bur- 
lington as to Durham.

the express is only $1.20 and from Norfolk, Va., to Lynchburg, 70 cts.,

just." 

The Commission replied that the matter of express rates from 
Newbern to points in Virginia were inter-state, and had no juris-

brick that for brick by the car-load from Weldon to Henderson 
he was charged a higher rate than that given to Henderson Cotton

Weldon Railroad Company refuse to have other refrigerator cars 
than the C. F. T. Company's cars, which they claim they have an 
exclusive arrangement with the C. F. T. Co. to furnish refrigerators 
for this service. Are they not compelled to give any other refrig- 
erator company the same service for the same money? The C. F. T. 
Company give good service, but their rates are very high, and we can 
get other reliable refrigerators in if the railroad company would give 
them the same rates." 

The Commission replied as follows : "The Railroad Company 
cannot be forced to furnish other refrigerators than of its own selec- 
tion, provided they are such as to insure to the public reasonable and 
proper accommodations, and the facilities are such as to carry all 
shipments offered.

On May 21, 1896, complainant filed a complaint to the effect 
that defendant company had been careless about refunding over- 
charges ; that an overcharge of eight dollars on a shipment of ten 
barrels of twine was due him, and that defendant failed to refund. 

Complaint was served and a reply was made through A. B. 
Andrews, 1st Vice-President of defendant company, in which 
answer is made to this effect : " Claims of J. S. Ragsdale were 
paid in the months of January and February. The payment of one 
has been delayed by failure of connecting line to return papers ; will, 
however, pay this and charge to suspense. Will also arrange to pay all 
overcharge claims of complainant when the amounts involved are 
clearly caused by straight overcharge on our bill of lading, no matter 
whether the overcharges are with our line or connections." 

On January 10th the Commission addressed a communication to 
complainant, enclosing a copy of letter of defendant, requesting to be 
advised if all claims had been satisfactorily adjusted.

mercial interests of the place, and asks that the defendant be 
required to furnish an office at some convenient place in the town. 

Copy of complaint was served on defendant and answer thereto 
filed on April 2, 1896. as follows : 
" H. C. Brown, Esq., Clerk : 

Dear Sir — I have received your letter of 31st ultimo as to estab- 
lishing an up-town office in Mt. Airy, N. C, and with every dis- 
position to accommodate the citizens at that place 1 do not see that 
we can do so, because the receipts of the office will not justify us in 
paying the salary of an operator and messenger. 

"This is about the situation : — Investigatation shows that the 
receipts of that office are inadequate to support a competent opera- 
tor, to pay rent and to pay for a messenger, and this we would have 
to do if we established an office up-town, to say nothing of other 
incidental expenses. 

"With the view to do all in my power to facilitate telegraphic 
intercourse at Mt. Airy, I arranged some time ago to pay a messen- 
ger for delivering messages from the depot up-town. This cost us 
nearly $ 15 per month and is still continued. 

"There is another point to be considered in the relations of the tel- 
egraph company and railroad company with the public ; for exam- 
ple, there are many depots scattered along the right of ways of rail- 
roads at which we do a business of $2, $3, $5, $10, $15, or $20 
per month. Some of these villages are fully as distant from the 
depot as Mt. Airy. I do not see how we could establish the prece- 
dent of opening offices up-town at these places, nor do I see the 
necessity for it. It is a common thing in cities like Raleigh, Rich- 
mond, Wilmington, Norfolk or Charlotte for pers; ns having busi- 
ness with the telegraph company to walk to the office to send their 
messages. Why, therefore, is it that in these small villages along 
the railroad we have got to put ourselves to extraordinary expense 
in order to accommodate the small amount of telegraphing to be 
done by the mercantile communities of such places? If we cannot 
pay expenses, it seems that ought to end the question ; we have daily 
applications from the seven States within this district to do just 
exactly what Mt. Airy is trying to force us to do in this case. 

"No corporation and no business concern whatever isjustified in 
doing business at any point where the expenses are greater or equal

to the receipts. This is a sound business principle that cannot be 
denied. 

"As to the increase of business at these small villages by moving 
the office up-town, so it will be more handy to the citizens of the 
place, it is very doubtful that if the convenience was placed at their 
own doors, as suggested in the attached letter, that it would increase 
our business, because there is not sufficient trade or speculation to 
induce the mercantile communities to send any more messages than 
are absolutely required." 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh June 9, 1896, this case 
w T as called, and it appearing that the Commission had no jurisdic- 
tion in the matter, was ordered dismissed.

November, 1891, plaintiff delivered to agent of defendant company, 
at Kittrell, N. C, one box of medicine, marked to J. P. Poteat, Mil- 
ton, 1ST. C, and to tins date box had not been delivered to consignee. 

Complaint was served on defendant February 5th, with the request 
for prompt answer. On May 5, 1896, defendant answered through 
J. W. Wilson, freight claim agent, as follows : 

" I now have papers in my hands, returned to me by the agent at 
Kittrell's, N. C, and the recoid shows that the missing box was 
delivered to consignee at Milton, N. C, freight charges collected, 
and all O. K. Agent at Milton, N. C, makes the endorsement 
under date March 20, 1896. There is, therefore, no further room 
for claim from Mrs. Persons. The trouble in delay in shipment was 
on account of being marked to Wilson, N. C, instead of to Milton? 
K C." 

The Commission then addressed a communication to plaintiff, as 
* ollows :

" The railroad company writes the Commission that the box has 
been delivered to consignee at Milton. It seems that you marked 
the box to Wilson, N. C, instead of to Milton, where it remained 
until traced and forwarded to destination. If the box was marked 
wrong by you, causing the delay, yon would have no recourse on the 
railroad company."

On the 26th day of January, 1896, plaintiff, a merchant doing 
business at Laurinburg, x>T. C, filed with the Commission a com- 
munication alleging that the agent of the railroad company at 
Laurinburg, in addition to his agency ran a public* dray, and that by 
virtue of his agency he gave undue preference to his own dray ; that 
he delayed unnecessarily the drays of others by refusing to deliver 
freight called for; that he required prepayment from some of the 
patrons, and credited those he himself did the hauling for, to the great 
injury of complainant and other draymen. The Chairman of the 
Commission visited Laurinburg and made a thorough investigation 
of the matter, examining many witnesses, and came to the con- 
clusion that the allegations of plaintiff should not be sustained. 

Case was dismissed.

Complaint was served and reply thereto by J. B. Munson, District

The Indestructible Bed Spring Company^ Petition to 

to Y Reduce 

The Commission. J Classification. 

June 23, 1896. 

Petitioners are manufacturers of bed springs and spring beds at 
Greensboro, N. C. They ask that the Commission order a lower 
clasification on spring beds. 

Petitioners say : " Our reason for believing that we should have a 
better rating is, as we understand, freight rates to be computed on 
the number of cubic feet occupied, weight and risk. Now by refer- 
ence to the freight rating, you will see that a shuck mattress takes 
third-class rating; one of these mattresses weighs less, occupies a 
larger space, and is more expensive than our spring beds. We are 
charged first class. We are reliably informed that spring beds 
take a much lower rating in the Northern and Western States, and 
can be shipped through the South cheaper than we can ship in our 
own State. Spring beds knocked down take a lower rating, but our 
springs being linked together require special machinery to set them 
up, and for this reason we are unable to take advantage of that class." 

On June 11, 1896, the Commission addressed the following com- 
munication to petitioners: "The Commission has thoroughly consid- 
ered the application of your company for a reduction of the classifica- 
tion on bed springs or spring beds. Upon investigation it is ascertained 
that the same classification as ours applies in the other states and 
that you are not discriminated against. 

" The Commission decides to make no change in the classification 
at present. A revision of the classification will be gone into later, 
and the matter of spring beds classification will again be con- 
sidered."

June 23, 1896. 

On May 25, 1896, complainant filed complaint for delay on part 
of defendant in forwarding car-load shipment of corn delivered at 
Cresswell depot, a station on the line of defendant's road, to be for- 
warded to Tarboro, N. C. Plaintiff states that defendant delayed 
the forwarding for ten days or more. Notice of complaint was 
served on defendant, and immediate answer was received, as follows : 

" The corn was put in our warehouse on the 11th, and our agent 
gave receipt for same, but the shipper instructed him to hold the 
corn in the warehouse until he ordered it forward, which w T as done. 
On May 22d consignee wired us, asking what was the matter, and we, 
on the same day, were advised by our representative that the ship- 
ment was in warehouse ready to be forwarded whenever the ship- 
per leceived consignee's check in payment for same. As soon as 
the shipper ordered the corn to go forward, which was on the 23d, it 
left Creswell by our steamer and was delivered to the Norfolk & 
Carolina Railroad at Tunis, N. C, on the same day." 

On May 28, 1896, a communication was addressed to plaintiff, as 
follows: "We hand you a copy of letter from the General Freight 
Agent relative to your claim for delay. You will note the delay 
was caused by instructions received from shipper. If this was not 
the case, please advise the Commission further. The defendant also 
states that the corn has been deliveied." 

At a session of the Commission on June 23, 1896, this case was 
called, and it appearing that no further communication had been 
received from complainant, was ordered closed.

Plaintiff had two barrels of oil shipped from Baltimore to Wash-

made on shipment from Washington to Tarboro. 

The facts not being fully set out, the Commission addressed a com-

shows $2.00 per barrel. This is an overcharge. Oil is classed as 
Fourth Class, released, and for a distance of 15 miles the rate should 
not exceed 22 cents per hundred pounds, and 400 pounds to the bar-

of passenger and freight accommodations. They ask that the Caro- 
lina Central be required to rebuild a depot, one having been

located more than a mile from the center of the town, and ask that 
the two roads be required to extend their respective tracks into the

town ; that the county is burdened with large bonded debts for the 
building of these roads and should be required to grant this 
relief. 

Vice President St. John, representing the Carolina Central Rail- 
road Company, replying to the complaint, says that the business 
received at Marion by his company would not warrant much expendi- 
ture in the way of depot facilities, but they would at an early day 
have a depot erected. The O. R. & Charleston, in its answer, states that 
the business does not or would not justify it in extending its road into 
the town. So far as the bonded debt is concerned, the company 
now owning the O. R. & C. Railway had nothing whatever to do in 
placing this debt upon the county, and are deriving no benefit 
from it. 

At a session of the Commission June 23, 1896, this case was 
called, and it appearing that the depot desired was being erected, 
and the Commission having no jurisdiction in the other matter of 
the complaint, case was ordered closed.

June 23, 1896. 

This was a petition filed May 6, 1896, by the citizens of Greg- 
ory, asking that the defendant company be required to enlarge its 
station facilities at that place. 

In answer to this petition, M. K. King, General Manager of defend- 
ant company, made answer as follows. 

" The station is located on the northern edge of the swamp, (extend- 
ing from the North river to and across the Virginia line,) about a 
mile wide where crossed by the railroad. 

"There is one highway crossing the swamp in a southwest direction, 
less than a mile distant from the station, and another one between 
four and five miles distant to the eastward, both roads leading into 
Camden county. 

" Shawboro station is two miles north of Gregory and Belcross is 
three miles, including swamp, to the south. 

" The population resorting to Gregory is, 

a. " The few persons across the swamp in Camden who by the first 
named road are nearer to Gregory than to Belcross ; 

0' Those in Currituck about the station and nearer than to Shaw- 
boro ; 

c. Those east of the station about Indian Town, who usually 
patronize a steamboat running through the canal to and from that 
point, but who by any irregularity of the boat, or for perishable 
freight, have to use the railroad. 

" There is a saw-mill temporarily located at the station. 

" There is a seperate siding at the station maintained for the use of 
car-load shippers of corn and similar products. 

" Of the 55 names signed to the petition, 

" 3 live nearer to and use other stations, 

" 18 are tenants, 

" 14 are laborers at the saw-mill and elsewhere, 

u 14 are land-owners in the vicinity of the station. 

" Enclosed is a statement of the revenue from fi eight stripped to 
and from the station for each of the three past years, not including 



198 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

car-loads of lumber, logs, corn, &c; Also revenue from passengers 
for the same period, a large part of which is directly and indirectly 
derived from the saw-mill above mentioned. 

" In view of the facts above stated, and that, being situated at the 
edge of the swamp, the only direction from which traffic can come in 
any considerable degree is either from the neighborhood of another 
station or of a distant river lauding, the writer does not thing any 
change necessary in depot facilities at Gregory station." 

At a session of the Commission June 23, 1896, this case was called, 
and upon examination of the freight receipts for the station and a 
full investigation, the Commission is of the opinion that no addi- 
tional improvements should be ordered at the present time.

" As you are, no doubt, aware, considerable demoralization exists

" This demoralization is brought about by no act of ours, but in 
order to preserve our revenue it is necessary for us to meet these

teen cents per hundred pounds. 

The complaint was served, with the request that settlement be

Grove in the western half of York County, and on the line of said 
O. R. & C. railway), and that said cotton was detained at Marion 
by said W. N. C. Railroad Company for many days, necessitating 
our purchase of other cotton in haste and at disadvantage to avoid 
the stoppage of our mills and loss of valuable contracts. The 
freight had been prepaid. Finally, upon notice to the agent at 
Marion that suit would be brought for damages, the cotton came 
promptly down without explanation. 

" Second. About the 10th of the present month we ordered 40 bales 
of cotton shipped by the same route from same region, and on the 
15th instant received the bill of lading with guaranteed rate to this 
place of 33 cents, with freight charges following. Owing to the 
unreasonable delay we have been forced to shut down the mill for 
lack of cotton, and likewise imperil our contracts. We having ten- 
dered freight charges, submit that a common carrier cannot refuse 
to receive and forward freights under such conditions. They may 
choke us to death with discriminations, but they must do it in 
accordance with law. 

" We respectfully ask an award of $15 per day for the time we 
are deprived of our property." 

Served on July 28, 1896, and answer filed through General Super- 
intendent Green as follows : 

" Shipment of January 29th was received at Marion 3.00 P. M., 
Saturday, February 1st, transferred and forwarded to Morgan ton by 
first train on Monday, February 3d. 

" The July shipment referred to was delivered to us at Marion 
12,45 P. M., July 18th, and forwarded 12.00 midday, July 22d. 
This shipment was billed from Hickory Grove, S. C, to Morganton, 
N. C, collect 33 cents through rate, leaving 11 cents for our pro- 
portion, whereas our local rate Marion to Morganton is 8 cents. 
The agent, immediately upon receipt of the cotton, sent a mail tele- 
gram to Mr. Munson, our division freight agent at Raleigh, which, 
however, was enclosed in error to Mr. Halsey at Washington, and 
did not reach Mr. Munson until July 22d, when he immediately 
wired the agent to forward the shipment on our local rate, 8 cents, 
which was done. 

"The mistake in directing the mail telegram caused delay of three

days to the shipment at Marion. Our traffic department advise me 
they have called attention of the agent to his error in holding this 
cotton, and I hope no like trouble will occur again. 

At a session of the Commission September 7, 1896, this case was 
called, and it appearing that the matter had been satisfactorily 
adjusted with complainant, case was dismissed.

v. y. Q 

-d a a t -d Siding. 

Raleigh and Augusta Air-Line Railroad 

Company. 

September 22, 1896. 

The petition of the above-named complainants respectfully 
shows : 

I. That A. Cameron and J. A. Leslie are copartners conducting a 
general mercantile and lumber business in the town of Yass, in 
Moore county, North Carolina. 

II. That the defendant above named is a common carrier engaged 
in the transportation of passengers and property by railroad between 
Raleigh and Hamlet, and as such common carrier is subject to 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. 

III. That the complainants operate a saw-mill for the manu- 
facture of lumber, at Yass, on the south side of said railroad ; that 
there is no switch or siding on the south side of said road, and the 
cars provided by the railroad company for the transportation of 
complain ants' lumber must be loaded by means of skids extending 
from an embankment on the south side of said road across the main 
line of railroad to the car situated on a switch or siding on the 
north side of said railroad ; that for a considerable distance along 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 209 

the main line of said road, north from the town of Yass, there is a 
very low grade and deep depression, making it impossible to dis- 
cover a train moving south on said main line a sufficient length of 
time to remove said skids and make way for the southbound train, 
by means of all which the complainants are greatly delayed in load- 
ing their lumber and made to suffer great inconvenience. 

Wherefore, the petitioners pray that the defendant may be 
required to answer the charges heiein, and that after due hear- 
ing and investigation an order be made commanding the defendant 
to construct a siding on the south side of said road, so that your 
petitioners may be enabled to load their lumber on said cars without 
danger to themselves and others, and without unnecessary delay 
and inconvenience. 

This case came on for hearing September 22, 1 S96, Black & 
Adams appearing for plaintiffs and McRae & Day for defendant. 
After a full investigation and argument by counsel, defendant pro- 
posed a compromise, which was accepted by plaintiffs, as follows : 

Defendant agrees to place all the siding as desired by petitioners, 
and to pay for same, the cost of which is to be estimated and kept 
account of by Superintendent Moncure, petitioners to enter into 
bond in the sum estimated to be the cost of the siding, said bond to 
be void upon plaintiffs' shipping lumber to the amount of one million 
feet a year, otherwise plaintiffs to pay for the cost of the siding. 
No further relief being asked, case was ordered closed.

v. > Discrimination. 

Southern Express Company. J 

September 22, 1896. 

In this case complaint was filed on the first day of May, 1896, 
alleging that the defendant company was guilty of discrimination, 
in that plaintiffs was retrained from the privilege of shipment of 
packages over its express lines, as shown by the following order of 
the Southern Express Company : 



210 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS, 

" To Agent at Kernersville, N. C: 

" You are hereby notified that packages C. O. D., or otherwise,, 
shipped by Kerner Bros, from Kernersville, North Carolina, will not 
be received by this company unless charges are prepaid in full." 

Plaintiff alleges that it is unjustly discriminated against ; that it 
has guaranteed the express charges of all shipments ; that it is put 
to heavy loss, and has sustained loss to the amount of several hun- 
dred dollars on -account of the defendant company not allowing 
plaintiffs the privilege of doing business over said Southern Express 
Company's lines, and asks that the Railroad Commission issue an 
order requiring the defendant company to receive and forward such 
shipments as tendered, and for such damages as plaintiff shall show 
by itemized statement it has sustained. 

This complaint was set for hearing at various times, and continued 
from session to session in order to suit the convenience of plaintiff 
and have a full investigation. 

Called for final hearing September 22, 1S96. 

It appeared from sworn evidence that the plaintiff was not a man- 
ufacturer, but was shipping cigars under many names, such as 
C. O. D. Cigar Company, Key West Cigar Company and Dixie Cigar 
Company, and advertised to ship 300 cigars and a gold-filled watch 
for $10, with other similar inducements. It was also in evidence 
that many of the packages sent were returned and payment of 
charges refused ; at times as many as 100 of these packages were in 
the express office, returned and not redeemed by plaintiff. Files of 
Winston Sentinel, /Republican, and National Advertiser were pro- 
duced, in which the firms were spoken of as deceptive, &c. But, 
apart from the nature of the transactions, the right of a 
transportation company to credit one shipper and refuse another 
seems to be settled. In Allen v. Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley 
Railway Company, it was held : " A common carrier has a right 
to demand the prepayment of charges for transportation before 
receiving freight for shipment to one individual, although it may 
have an established custom to accept shipments to its other patrons 
without such prepayment." Section 1963 of the Code recognizes- 
this right. Also, in case of Randall v. Railroad, 108 North Caro- 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 211 

lina, in which the Court says : "A common carrier may require pre- 
payment of freight from any shipper it chooses, although it may not 
require it from others." 

The Commission concludes that the defendant has violated no 
provision of the Act creating the Commission, nor any rule or regu- 
lation made in pursuance of it, by the refusal of defendant to 
require prepayment of charges by plaintiff. The action was dis- 
missed.

September 7, 1896. 

The citizens of Sylva, a station on defendant's line, filed their peti- 
tion July 25, 1896, alleging that the depot at that place was in a 
dilapidated condition, leaked badly during rainy weather, was insuf- 
ficient in size and no accommodations of any consequence for passen- 
gers or freight, and asking that defendant be required to furnish 
them better depot facilities. 

The petition was served on July 25, 1896, accompaniod by a let- 
ter from the chairman of the Commission, who had inspected the 
depot in person, with the request that better accommodations be 
furnished, and an answer thereto filed on the 25th day of August,. 
1896, saying that instructions had been given to repair the building 
and add one waiting room. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 7, 1896,. 
it appearing that additional depot facilities had been furnished, casa 
was dismissed.

Southern Express Company. ) 

September 22, 1896. 

This was a complaint by W. L. Baxter, Cheatham and Moore, and 
other shippers of strawberries from Ridgeway, N. C, to New York. 
Plaintiff filed complaint AugustlO, 1896, alleging that complainants 
delivered to defendant's agent at Ridgeway, on May 11, 1896, 64 crates 
of strawberries for Northern markets, which were accepted and 
receipted for. Said shipment of berries went as far as Weldon, and 
was there refused by A. C. L. train for want of room ; that they were 
kept over in Weldon, and arrived at their destination 21 hours late, 
in almost worthless condition ; that some of the commission mer- 
chants refused to receive them, and therefore proved a total loss to 
shippers; that others paid the express charges and sold at very low 
prices; that had they arrived on May 12, 1896, they would have 
met a good market ; that the loss sustained was $150, and asks that 
the Commission require defendant company to refund to them the 
amount of damages as claimed. The complaint was served, and on 
August 11, 1896, defendant filed its answer, saying that the matter 
would receive attention. 

The case was set for hearing on September 22, 1896. 

The case was called, and it appearing by letter from plaintiffs that 
the loss had been paid in full by defendant, and a withdrawal 
of the complaint asked for, and there being no need of further inves- 
tigation, case was dismissed.

This was an action on the part of the Commission taking into con- 
sideration the question of revising and adjusting the local freight 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 113 

and passenger tariffs. The Commission was advised of a reduction 
of about 35 per cent, of the through rates, by the railroads passing 
through this State, which destroyed the relative proportion between 
the said through rates and the local rates heretofore existing On 
September 7, 1896, the Commission addressed the following com- 
munication to the railroad companies at interest : 

September 7, 1896. 

" It appears from press reports that reduced rates have been again 
ordered to be put iji effect from certain points outside of this State 
to certain points within — clearly causing a discrimination in viola- 
tion of the long and short haul clause of the act creating the Inter- 
state Commission. Justice to the local business of the State requires 
of us to take prompt action. It is, therefore, ordered by this Com- 
mission that all roads doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall reduce their local tariffs of passenger and freight in the 
same proportion as has been done by them on their through busi- 
ness. The Commission will meet on Saturday the 12th to hear any 
objection to this order." 

On September 12th, the day set for hearing, this matter was called, 
and on motion was continued to September 22, 1896, October 5, 
1896. 

September 12th the Commission amends its order of the 7th to 
read as follows : 

Raleigh, September 12, 1896. 

" In Board of Railroad Commissioners of North Carolina, in session 
at Raleigh this day. It appeared that the 4th Section of the Inter- 
State Commerce Act, known as the long and short haul clause, was 
violated by one at least of the companies interested. This Com- 
mission has no jurisdiction to remedy this, but for each offense 
reported will see that it is properly brought to the attention of the 
Inter-State Commerce Commission, and ask for speedy action by it. 
It is ordered that all railroad companies doing business within 
North Carolina who have or may put in force cut rates to and 
from points in this State to and from points outside, shall so arrange 
their local freight tariffs that the same relative reduction shall be 
given to local business as has been or may hereafter be given to 
through business. 



'214 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

" It is also ordered that the standard passenger rates shall be, on 
and after the 24th day of September, 1896, as follows: 

First-class.... ._ 3 cents per mile. 

Second-class 2 J cents per mile. 

" That all percentage heretofore granted to certain small corpor- 
ations shall be readjusted by them in like proportion to conform to 
this order, it being a redaction on passenger rates of one-fourth cent 
per mile for each class. All parties interested will be heard as to 
the reasonableness of these rates on September the 22d. All excep- 
tions to be filed on or before that date." 

This case was called foi final hearing October 5, 1896. It was in 
evidence before the Commission that the reduced through rates, 
known as " cut rates," had been withdrawn and the old rates 
restored. This being the case, the matter of freight tariff was not 
further considered. 

The matter of local passenger rates was taken up. The represent- 
atives of the various systems of railroads were present and heard at con- 
siderable length as to the effect of a reduction of the passenger rates. 
Numerous witnesses were examined and some fifty pages of evidence 
taken, which we have not space to embody in this report. 
The Commission finds as a fact that its present Standard of Passenger 
rates is as low or lower than most of the other states ; that the major- 
ity of the roads in the State are paying no dividends to its stock- 
holders, and in order that an efficient passenger service may be 
maintained, the earnings as compared with the expenses would not 
justify a reduction of the rates. The Commission concludes that 
the present stardard of passenger rates of 21 and 3? cents per mile 
is not unreasonable, and is therefore of the opinion that it should 
not reduce the tariff of passenger rates at this time, and it is so 
adjudged.

October 21, 1896. 

This was an action on the part of the Commissioners by commu- 
nication addressed to the Southern Express Company, to the effect 
that it had under consideration the matter of reducing the express 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 115 

tariff over the line of the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad, 
and make same conform to the rate as applied to other roads of the 
State, and requested defendant company to appear at the office of 
the Commissioners on October 5, 1896, to show cause, if any, why 
this proposed reduction should not be made. 

The defendant company in its answer states as follows : 

" The Southern Express Company only operates on the Atlantic 
and North Carolina Railroad by consent of and agreement with the 
said railroad company, and it can continue its operations on that 
line only by carrying out its now existing contract in all respects. 
The rates the Commission would require of us, and the rates the rail- 
road requires of the express company under present contract, are as 
follows, on merchandise : 

" From Goldsboro to New Berne you say we shall charge 50 cents, 
while we pay the railroad 60 cents. 

"From Goldsboro to Morehead you say we shall charge 75 cents, 
while we pay the railroad 75 cents. 

"From New Berne to Morehead you say we shall charge the pub- 
lic 50 cents, and the railroad says we shall pay 50 cents. 

"From Goldsboro to Falling Creek you say we shall charge th 
public 40 cents, and the railroad says we shall pay them 60 cents 

"From New Berne to Newport you say we shall charge the public 
30 cents, and the railroad says we shall pay them 50 cents. 

"From Morehead to Newport you say we shall charge the public 
30 cents, and the railroad says we shall pay them 50 cents. 

"From Morehead to New Berne you say we shall charge 50 cents, 
and the railroad says we shall pay them 50 cents. 

"On a barrel of fish from Morehead to Goldsboro you would require 
us to carry it for $1, and the railroad would require us to pay them $1. 

"From Morehead to New Berne you would require us to charge 
80 cents, and the. railroad would require us to pay them $1. 

"From New Berne to Goldsboro you would require us to carry it 
for 80 cents, and the railroad would require us to pay them $1. 

"The other expenses of an express company, besides railroad trans- 
portation, are much greater than anybody outside of the express 
business has any idea of. The casual shipper thinks the express 
company has no expense except the transportation on the railroad. 
It is a matter which we have to contemplate ourselves, whether we 



216 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



can get anybody else to appreciate it or not, that our expenses, out- 
side of railroad transportation, are from 45 to 55 per cent, of our 
gross earnings on all things. We have to pay agents, clerks, drivers 
and messengers ; we have to hire offices, buy horses, wagons, trucks^ 
safes, horse feed, stationery ; we have to keep accounts ; we have to 
pay taxes, and a whole lot of other incidental expenses. 

"Whether the express company can undertake to continue to carry 
express business on the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad and 
charge the public the rates required by the Commission will depend 
upon the rates that we are required to pay the railroad." 

ki To revise the Southern Express Company's rates over the Atlan- 
tic and North Carolina Railroad so that it might still be able to pay 
expenses and live, it would be necessary for the railroad company 
to make very considerable reductions in the price to the express 
Company. Whether this should be done or not is a matter of expe- 
diency which we apprehend the Commission will consider in the light 
of their relations to the railroad as the property of the State, as it 
is understood the State of North Carolina owns a controlling interest 
in the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad — the capital stock of 
said road being $1,797,100, of which the State owns $1,266,500." 

The Commission, after much consideration and a careful examina- 
tion of the facts in the case, concluded that a reduction from the rates 
now in effect should be made, and the following tariff is ordered :

This complaint was filed April 11th, 1896. The plaintiff alleged 
that on March, 9th, 1896, a telegram was delivered to the agent of 
the defendant company at Concord, N. C, addressed to G. A. 
Oglesby, Selma, N. C. 

That said message was delivered to the agent at Concord at 10 
o'clock, a. m., and reached Selma, N. C, next day at 8:45 a. m. ; 
that plaintiff suffered by this delay to the amount of five dollars. 
The plaintiff prayed the Commission to investigate the alleged griev- 
ance, and for such relief as the Commission might see proper to 
adjudge in his behalf. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh, beginning September 
22nd, 1896, this case was called for final hearing, and it appearing 
from the opinion of the Supreme Court, in Mayo v. Telegraph Co., 
that the Commission has no jurisdiction to hear and determine a. 
case of alleged negligence on the part of a telegraph company on 
account of unreasonable delay in transmitting or delivering a tele-

The Complaint in this case was filed September 25, 1896, served

investigation disclosed the following facts : 

The plaintiff, who was travelling for and represented A. Gans

July 4, 1896, delivered to agent of defendant company at Rocky 
Mount, N. C, one large sample trunk filled with overcoats to be trans-

same ; that said trunk from some cause was lost and delayed, and

made several trips without this trunk of samples and by the failure 
to have the samples of overcoats failed to sell to his usual customers 
and thereby suffered a loss to the amount of sixty dollars. Plaintiff 
demanded that defendant be required to pay the loss sustained. 
Defendants answered that a settlement of the claim would be

if there would be no reduced rate tickets on sale to Atlanta on the 
morning of the 17th, and that the agent, Mr. Coffin, replied, "No, 
sir." 

Plaintiff states that he then purchased from some one a mileage 
ticket book and used same to Atlanta and return. 

Plaintiif, after arriving at Atlanta, met with several parties who 
bought reduced rate tickets at Greensboro for Atlanta and return 
on the morning that he was told by agent no reduced rate tickets 
would be on sale. 

Plaintiff demands that defendant be required to refund to him the 
difference in the cost of the ticket used and the cost of the reduced 
tickets as advertised. 

This complaint was served on defendant and answer thereto filed 
on August 15th through W. A. Turk, General Passenger Agent, as 
follows : 

"I enclose sworn statement of ticket clerk, which shows there was 
sold at Greensboro ticket office by ticket clerk on December 17, 
1895, six round-trip tickets to the Atlanta exposition, at the reduced 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 221 

rate of $9.20 each, which will show that Mr. Pickett could have 
procured a ticket to Atlanta and return at rate as advertised if he 
had applied for it, as there could be no reason for discriminating 
against him or any one else ; that these tickets were on sale from 
September 14th until December 24th ; that he did not refuse to sell 
Mr. Picket or any one else on the night of December 16 tickets at 
the rate mentioned ; that Mr. Pickett did not buy a ticket of any 
description at our Greensboro office on the date on question ; that 
while he cannot lecall the particulars of the previous conversation 
with Mr. Pickett he has no just cause to believe that he gave him 
anything but correct information." 

Defendant enclosed a sworn certificate signed by prominent citi- 
zens of Greensboro to the effect that Mr. Coffin, the ticket clerk, 
had always been found uniformly courteous and correct in his offi- 
cial capacity, and that no one in that community stands higher for 
truth and honesty. 

At a session of the Commission at Raleigh October 21, 1896, this 
case was called for final hearing, and it appeared that the Commis- 
sion had no jurisdiction of the subject matter of the complaint the 
case was dismissed.

W. B. Brawley, Complainant, ) 

v. > Cars for Loading. 

Southern Railway Company. ) 

November 17, 1896. 

This complaint filed by W. B. Brawley, of Grantville, alleges 
that the defendant company refused to supply him with box ears to 
be loaded with wood two feet in length, but wished him to use flats, 
which was unreasonable. The defendants in reply, stated that they 
had been supplying gondolas for this business, and would have gladly 
furnished the box cars, but were unable to do so on account of the 
heavy movements of cotton at that time. The pressure having 
passed, there will in the future be no cause of complaint.

v. v Demurrage Charges. 

Southern Railway Company. ) 

November 17, 1896. 

This was a complaint filed October 2, 1896, by White Brothers, 
and alleges that the defendant company demanded demurrage for 
the failure of plaintiff to unload a shipment of flour and bran less 
than a car load. 

On Nov. 17 the case being called, it was held by the Commission 
that the rule in regard to demurrage can only apply to carload lots, 
and that it was the duty of the defendant to unload the contents of 
the car in its depot, and that the plaintiff was in no way liable for 
demurrage claimed.

Plaintiff filed his complaint Sept. 30, 1896, alleging unreasonable 
delay and annoyance by failure of defendant to furnish treight rates 
on shipments from Jamestown, N. C, to points outside of the State. 

The complaint was served on defendant, and answer filed thereto, 
saying that the delay was caused by misplacing of tariff by agent at 
Jamestown, and that in future there would be no further trouble. 

This case was called at a meeting of the Commission November 
17, 1897, and it appearing by communication from plaintiff that the 
matter had been satisfactorily explained, and that no further relief 
was demanded, case was ordered dismissed.

iff from Marion, N. C, to Port Chester, New York. Complaint was 
filed August 17th and served same day.

from letter filed by plaintiff that the matter had been satisfactorily 
adjusted by defendant, case was ordered closed.

November 17, 1896. 

Complaint for overcharge. 

Upon investigation of complaint it was found that plaintiff was 
charged $5.28 freight on one mower and seven parts from Reidsville 
to Mt. Olive. It appeared that the mower was not properly knocked 
down and packed, and according to classification there was no over- 
charge.

State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Clark, Complainant, \ 

v. I Overcharge. 

Wilmington & Weldon Railroad Company. ) 

November 17, 1896. 

Plaintiff filed complaint June 20, 1896, alleging an overcharge on 
shipment of potatoes from Neals to Raleigh. Upon investigation it 
appeared that a special rate existed from Neals to Raleigh on this 
class of freight ; that a change of agents had just been made at Neals, 
and the agent charged freight at regular posted class rate, overlook- 
ing at the time the special, hence an overcharge. 

At a session of the Commission November 17, 1896, this case was 
called for final hearing, and the Commission being convinced that 
there was no intention on part of defendant to disregard the rules of 
the Commission, and it further appearing that the necessary precau- 
tion had been taken by the defendant to prevent a recurrence of the 
error, and the amount of the overcharge had been refunded to the 
plaintiff, it was adjudged that the action be dismissed.

v. > Overcharge. 

Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad Co. ) 

November 17, 1896. 

Complaint for overcharge on corn shipped from Gary's, a station 

* on S. & R. R., R. to Gaston, a station on R. & G. R.R. Plaintiff 

alleges that he is charged a rate of 8 cents per 100 pounds, and that 

he is informed that this is in excess of the rate prescribed by the 

Railroad Commission for this class of freight. 

Complaint was served and defendant answered on June 18, 1896, 
saying that the rate of 8 cents per 100 pounds on corn from Gary's 
to Gaston was correct, and, upon defendant's understanding, accord- 
ing to the tariff prescribed by the Commission. 



REPORTS AND DECISIONS. 225 

Upon further investigation it was ascertained that defendant was 
not applying the tariff prescribed by the Commission properly, 
whereupon the following order was issued : 

" From and after this date the Kaleigh and Gaston Railroad 
Company and Seaboard and Roanoke R. R. Company shall apply the 
Commissioners' Standard Tariff for the transportation of freight 
from a station on either road to a station on the other." 

At a session of the Commission November 17, 1896, it appearing 
that defendant is complying with the order of the Commission, and 
has refunded to plaintiff certain overcharges, case was ordered 
closed. 



State of North Carolina on the Relation of the Railroad 

Commissioners, 

Clark, Complainant, \ 

v. V Overcharge. 

Western Union Telegraph Company. ) 

November 17, 1896, 

Complaint was filed July 9, 1896, alleging that defendant 
company, in violation of the rules of the Commission fixing a rate of 
twenty-five cents for a message of ten words to any point on its lines 
in North Carolina, had demanded and received of plaintiff 
thirt} T -five cents for a message of ten words from Raleigh to Oxford, 
North Carolina. 

Notice was served on the manager of the Western Union Tele- 
graph Company, citing him to appear before the Commission and 
show cause, if any, why it should not be adjudged that defendant 
company had forfeited the penalty as prescribed by Section 26 of 
the act creating the Railroad Commission. 

Defendant appeared before the Commission and introduced as a 
witness the messenger boy who demanded from plaintiff the charge 
of thirty-five cents for the sending of the message. 

It appeared upon investigation that the messenger was slightly 
deaf, and on asking of the manager the rate from Raleigh to Oxford, 
understood him to say thirty-five cents and not twenty-five cents; 
hence, demanded of plaintiff thirty-five cents, as he understood the 
rate told him. 



226 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

At a session of the Commission November 17, 1896, the case was 
called for a final hearing, when it appeared that the overcharge 
had been refunded by defendant, and that plaintiff asked no farther 
redress ; it further appeared that the overcharge was not an inten- 
tional violation of the law, and that the case did not demand any 
farther action on the part of the Commission.

PETERSEURG RAILROAD COMPANY.

PETERSBURG RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

The Petersburg Railroad Company was organized 1830, under laws of Virginia and North 
Carolina. 

Original charter granted by Act of the General Assembly of the State of Virginia, passed 
February 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 Leg- 
islature 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 Cora- 
pany claimed 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. Chartf r 
renewed by Act of Legislature, March 1, 1893.

CAROLINA CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTORY. 

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 Caro- 
lina Central Railroad Company, ratified January 18, 1881. 

The corporate powers of this Company are granted for ninety-nine years from the passage 
of the Act creating the Wilmington and Charlotte Railroad Company, passed at the session 
of 1855. 

The original purpose of this company was to effect railroad communication between Wil- 
mington and Charlotte, by way of Lumberton, Rockingham and Wadesboro and Monroe, with 
a capital stock of $-3,000,000, with the privilege of increasing the same to $3,000,000. Its capital 
stock was further increased $1,000,000 for the purpose of continuing said road to a point at or 
near the town of Rutherfordton.

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- Line 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.

NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 



HISTORY. 

The North Carolina Railroad Company was chartered January 27, 1849 ; road opened Jan- 
uary 30, 1856. Leased (September 11, 187 D to Richmond and Danville Railroad Company for 
thirty years from October, 1871, at a rental of $260,000 a year. The road runs from Goldsboro 
to Charlotte, 223 15-100 miles. Three -fourths of the stock is owned by the State of North Caro- 
lina, one-fourth by citizens of the State. The road-bed, by its charter, is exempt from taxa- 
tion. 

This company was chartei^ed for the purpose of effecting a railroad communication 
between the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad where the same passes over the Neuse River, 
in the county of Wayne, and the town of Charlotte, with a capital stock of $3,000,000. The line 
of the road was to be via Raleigh and thence via Salisbury to Charlotte. The act provided 
that whenever one- third of the capital stock should be subscribed for and taken by other par_ 
ties, that the State should subscribe for and take the remaining two-thirds.
