REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON INSPECTION. 

The Committee of Lispection report that they have exam- 
ined the books of the Treasurer, and find them accurately 
kept, and that the statements made in his report is a fair ex- 
2JOsition of the financial condition of the Company. 

Since the last annual meeting much new iron has been put 
dovv'n, and new ties placed on the road-bed and ballasted ; the 
condition of the track way is improved, and as soon as the bal- 
ance of the new iron now contemplated to be placed on the 



REPORT OP COMMITTEE ON INSPECTION. 



road is put down, it will compare favorably Avitli any railroad 
in the country. 

The bridges are in fine order and perfectly safe. The one 
over Crabtree is now being rebuilt, and will be completed in a 
short time. The rolling stock is in good order. The shops are 
well managed, and afford every facility for carrying on the 
necessary work in their line. 

We would again call the attention of the Stockholders to the 
necessity of a new depot at Ealeigh, and some protection of 
the engines and cars at Weldon. 

Since the Lst meeting it is a matter of congratulation that 
the Directors of the Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line Eoad have 
been able to overcome the difficulties in the way of pushing 
forward the work on the road, and that work has been com- 
menced at Sanford to extend that road to the Carolina Cen- 
tral. The necessity of this extension is too apparent to require 
any argument to prove it. 

While our receipts have fallen off largely on account of loss 
of business from the North Carolina Road, yet there has been 
also a great decrease in the expense account. 

Since our last meeting Hon. D. M. Barringer, a member of 
this Committee, has died. General Barringer was a man of 
fine talents and strict integrity, and had served his country in 
many situations of great importance in a manner highly honor- 
able and creditable both to himself and his country. 

By reference to tke reports it will appear that the financial 
condition of the Company is good, and if the present arrange- 
ments are fairl}'^ and prudently carried out the property will be 
placed in first rate order. 

When this is done and the Raleigh & Augusta Road is com- 
pleted, we see no reason why the Company should not earn 
and pay good dividends. 

THOMAS B. VENABLE, Chairman. 



PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 



Office Raleigh & Gaston R. R. Co., 

Raleigh, W. C, July 1st, 1874. 

To the StocIcJiolders of the 

Raleigh & Gaston Raih'oad Company : 

Gentlemen : — Your President and Board of Directors 
respectfully submit tl.eir twenty-fourth annual report for 
your information and consideration : 

The business on your road for the fiscal year ending 
31st May, is as follows : 

Receipts from Freights, $ 187,320 99 

" Passengers, 79,679 56 

" Mails, 7,275 00 

*•' '• Sundry sources, 517 81 

$ 274,803 36 
Operating expenses of all kinds, 192,508 99 

Showing a profit for the year of $ 82,294 37 

This amount added to the balance in the hands of 
your Treasurer at the end of the fical year, as unex- 
pended balance, makes a total of $107,867.78. 

In consequence of the absolute necessity of placing 
new rails upon your track and the rebuilding of Crabtree 
Bridge, your Board have deemed it best for the interest 
of the Stockholders to purchase one thousand tons of best 
American T rails and fastenings, so as to get them in 
position this summer, which will place your roadway in 



PRESIDENT S REPORT. 



good, safe and economical condition, and thus be pre- 
pared for the hoped for increase of business the com- 
ing Fall and Winter. 

They have also contracted with Mr. David Renno, the 
justly celebrated bridge builder, for the construction of a 
first class "Howe Truss" Bridge over Crabtree, to be 
built in the best and most substantial manner, and com- 
pleted within 90 days. With the completion of this 
bridge every one on your road, except that over Neuse 
River, will be of the very best description of Howe Truss, 
and in perfect order. That over the Neuse is in good 
order and condition, and whenever it becomes necessary 
a Howe Truss will be substituted for the lattice bridge 
now spanning this stream. 

The Stockholders will see that the expenditures for the 
iron and bridge will necessarily prevent a dividend for 
the p.ast year, but 3^our Board deem it of more para- 
mount importance to place your road in a safe and good 
condition, so as to enable it to do the business of a first- 
class company, and thus secure permanent future divi- 
dends than to use the amount on hand at the end of the 
past fiscal year in payment of a dividend. 

The condition of all the property of the Company 
has been very greatly improved during the past three 
years, and is now far more valuable than at any time 
s".nce the close of the war, tne roadway, superstructure, 
buildings and equipment have had especial attention, 
and although large expenditures have been required for 
repairs and new work, you have the satisfaction of know- 
ing that j'our property is in better order and safer condi- 
tion, and more valuable than heretofore. 

Your attention is called to the fact, as shown in the 
accompanying reports, that the gross earnings of the Road 
have decreased fully ninety thousand dollars last year un- 



PRESIDENTS REPORT. 



der that of the preceding year ; this is attributable 
mainly to three causes: 

1st. On the first of August the contract heretofore ex- 
isting between your Company and the North Carolina 
Railroad Company expired by limitation, and since that 
time much of the freight business heretofore enjoyed 
by us has gone by the Richmond & Danville Road, the 
lessees of the North Carolina Railroad, who control its 
business and its destiny, without, as is believed, much 
benefit to them, though with loss to us. 

2d. The boatable condition of the Cape Fear River, 
which took to Wilmington the business of the Western 
Road, and 

3d. The financial panic and the general monetary em- 
barrassments which followed, and are now being felt by 
all the industries and interests tributary to our railway, 
and universally throughout the South. 

It appears to be hopeless for us to look to any business 
from our natural ally and former friend, the North Car- 
olina Railroad Company, so long as it is worked and con- 
trolled by the present lessees in their exclusive interest, 
and hence we must look to other territory and means for 
our future prosperity. In this connection it affords your 
Board much pleasure to state that arrangements have 
been about perfected for the immediate extension of the 
Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line Railroad from Sanford to a 
connection with the Carolina Central Railway, and work 
on the same will have commenced when this report is 
read by you ; this extension will add largely to the re- 
ceipts of your Road, and give you a new outlet to Char- 
lotte, the South and the West. 

An earnest effort is now being made by the citizens of 
Clarksville and Mecklenburg county, Va., for the re- 
building of the Roanoke Valley Railroad from Manson,

on your Road, to Clarksville, on the Roanoke River. A 
commission from the citizens of that section have inter- 
viewed your President and Directors on the subject, and 
have expressed themselves as being highly gratified with 
its result. That road passes through a productive coun- 
try, tapping the Roanoke River at a valuable point, and 
if r» built will add largely to the business of your Road 
from a section now lost to us. We recommend the enter- 
prise to such aid and encouragement as you may be in 
condition to bestow. 

Upon an examination of the accompanying reports, 
the Stockholders will discover that notwithstanding the 
heavy losses sustained by this Com pan}' in the loss of 
business from the North Carolina Railway, the high water 
on the Cape Fear, and the financial embarrassments of 
the country, followed by general depression of all busi- 
ness, that your Company' makes a most flattering exhibit, 
which must convince you and the country at large of its 
ability at any and all times, and under almost any cir- 
cumstances to promptly meet all demands upon it, 
and especially to pay promptly the interest upon its 
bonds. Few railways in this country can make so satis- 
factory an exhibit, and show so bright a future as your 
own. 

By reference to the report of the Treasurer you will 
note that we have paid for and received from the Ral- 
eigh & Augusta Air-Line Railway Company, three thou- 
sand three hundred shares of their guaranteed eight per 
cent, stock at par, and have sold two hundred and twenty 
thousand dollars ($220,000) of our first mortgage bonds 
at par and interest, since which time additional sales have 
been made upon the same terms. If the business on the 
Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line Company shall meet our 
expectations the interest on the guaranteed stock of that 



president's report. IX 

road will offset and pay the interest on our mortgage 
bonds. 

On the 7th of April last it pleased an Allwise Provi- 
dence to remove by death our attentive and intelligent 
Master Mechanic, Mr. Judson B. Gayle, who was a most 
valuable officer and superior mechanic. At a meeting 
of your Board, held on the 13th of May, the vacancy was 
filled by the appointment of Mr. Bernard R. Harding, a 
gentleman of intelligence, and highly qualified to dis- 
charge the duties of the office. 

In conclusion we refer you to the accompanying re- 
ports of the Superintendent, Treasurer and Auditor with 
the tables annexed for the financial condition of the 
Company, general condition of the Road, equipment and 
the business generaly of the sevei al departments in de- 
tail. 

Respectfully submitted by order of the Board. 

W. J. HAWKINS, 

President. 



SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



Raleigh & Gaston Railroad Company, 

Superinteridenfs Offixie, 
Raleigh, N. C, June 29tb, 1874. 

Dr. W. J. Hawkins, President R. & G. R. R.: 

Sir: — The following report and statements show the 

operations of the Road for the year ending May 31st, 

1874: 

The earnings have been as follows : 

From Freights ^187,320 09 

" Passengers 79,679 56 

" Mails 7,275 00 

" Sundries 527 81 



Total $274,803 36 

The operating and other ex- 
penses were for conducting 
Transportation $62,720 54 

Maintenance of Way 48,473 19 

Maintenance of Motive Power 

and Cars 47,482 53 

Miscellaneous and other expen- 
ses as per Treasurer's Report, 33,822 73 



Total operating and other expenses $192,508 99 

Leaving a balance of $82,294.37 over operating and other 
expenses. 



superintendent's report. 13 

For a detailed statement as to tonnage, milage, &c., I 
refer 3'ou to the Auditor's and General Ticket Agent's 
tables. 

By comparing the year's operations with the preceding 
year we find that our receipts have fallen off $92,089.58. 
This is attributable wholly to the loss of almost the 
entire business of the North Carolina Road, both passen- 
ger and freights. Formerly we enjo3^ed a large share of 
the business of that road, under a contract with the 
North Carolina Railroad Company, which expired in 
August last. Since the expiration of said contract the 
lessees, the Richmond & Danville Railroad, have deemed 
it to their interest to send all passengers and freights via 
Danville. 

The shops and tools are in excellent condition. The 
stationary engine in the Carpenter Shop was found to be 
unfit for service, the boiler becoming unsafe, was con- 
demned and taken out, and replaced with a Baxter 
Engine (largest size). We have now nearly completed 
two (2) first-class coaches, that will compare favorably 
with any coaches made by the best makers North, and 
built at less cost; one other getting ready to be built. 
The three new passenger coaches, with three new baggage 
cars to be built, the repairing, painting and altering 
of the cars now in use will be sufficient for the present 
to do our passenger business. We have built fifteen ten 
(10) ton ventilated box cars. We are building them all 
ten ton and ventilated. We find them for all purposes 
far superior to any others. The cars we are now build- 
ing are the best to be found in the countr3^ Also, built 
two (2) flat and seven (7) hand cars for Road Department. 

Our Car equipment now consists of 

5 first-class Coaches, old style. 

6 second-class Coaches, old style. 



14 superintendent's report. 



3 Freight Conductors' Cars. 

3 Baggage, Express and Mail Cars. 

88 Box Cars. 

40 Flat Cars. 

10 Gravel Cars. 

Our Locomotive equipment consists of 13 Engines — 9 
of them are in first-class condition, one in Shops re- 
building and 3 rather small for our present business — 
they are used for hauling light trains and doing extra 
work in cases of emergency. 

The road-way is in very fine condition, considering 
the number of short rails in the track, which causes the 
Road to be rough though perfectly safe. We still have 
some forty-five (45) miles of old rails, which have been 
in use over twenty-two years. I would advise the pur- 
chase of 1,000 tons of rails at once, to be delivered at an 
early day, that the same ma}' be placed in the track 
before the 1st of November next. This additional quan- 
tity of rails will greatly improve the condition of the 
track for the next twelve months. We have used this 
year in repairs of track 1,000 tons of (T) Rails, Fish- 
plate joint, and 33,359 cross-ties, using the best of the 
old rails to supply the places of others more worn. 

The track from Weldon to Gaston was originally laid 
square joints without chairs, which niade a very rough 
and hard road to keep up. We have gradually changed 
this and put chairs under the whole, greatly improving 
the track between the points named. The culverts, with 
but few exceptions, need but little attention. 

The bridges are all good — Crabtree, a lattice bridge, 
built at the time the Road was constructed, is being 
replaced with a Howe Truss. The timber all on the 
ground, and the bridge now being framed b}^ D. M. Renno, 
will soon be in its place. We have one other lattice 



superintendent's report. 15 



bridge on the Road, "Neuse," which will be replaced 
with a Howe Truss whenever it becomes necessary to 
take it down. 

The depots and buildings are in excellent condition. 
We have built a warehouse at Youngsville, formerly 
called Pacific, a water station. The one at Forestville 
has been moved to Wake Forest College by the Trustees 
of that institution, by the consent of the Company and 
put in good condition, and all the other buildings that 
needed repairs. 

The trains have been run with the greatest regularity; 
no accident causing the loss of life or limb to any pas- 
senger or damage to the property of the Company worthy 
of notice has occured. 

It is gratifying to report that the employees of every 
grade, faithful to the interests of the Company, have 
cheerfully discharged their duties in their several posi- 
tions, and to them is due much of the success of this 
year's operations. 

RespectfuUv submitted, 

A. B. ANDREWS, 

Superintendent.
