REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON INSPECTION. 

The Committee of inspection made the following re- 
port: 

That they have examined the books of the Treasurer 
and other accounts and that the reports appended to the 
annual exhibit show a correct statement of the financial 
condition of the Company. 

The receipts for the last year, in view of the difficul- 
ties under which the Company has labored, are very sat- 
isfactory. On account of the antagonism of the North 
Carolina Roilroad Company a large deficit was expected. 
The returns show that it was however quite small. 

The extension of the Raleigh and Augusta Road and 
connection with the Carolina Central, bids fair to more 
than compensate for this loss. The results of the last 
year tends to show the importance of cultivating the 
local business of our Road. In order to do this it will 
be necessary to aid every effort made by the people in 
the counties along our Road in their attempts to con- 
struct branch lines connecting with this Road. 

Your Committee would especially call the attention of 
the Stockholders to the recommendations on this subject

in the President's report and reforamend tlint aid be ren- 
dered to the Road to Chirksville, and also frojn Hender- 
son to Oxford. The |)rogres.-< in building the Raleigh 
and Augusta Road should bo gratifying to the Stock- 
holdei's. 'File tracking of the Road is much improved 
and new iron is being rapidly laid down, and our Road 
is to-day in much better conditi( n than at any time 
since the close of the war. The Depots and Buildings 
are in excellent condition and well adapted to the wants 
of the Comj.)any. The Shops are well provided with the 
necessary tools, with few exceptions. The Company has 
turned dut during tlie year passenger and baggage cars 
equal to any made anjAvhere — reflecting great credit on 
our home mechanics. The shed at Weldon, long needed, 
has been built and affords ample accommodations to pas- 
sengers. 

The Bridges are all in excellent order. Your Road 
offers to passengers as safe and comfortable travel as any 
in the South. It is fair to presume that under favorable 
auspices the whole Road will be relaid in two years and 
then the expenses will be much reduced. From the 
Treasurer's report the balance on. ha^ul at the end of the 
fiscal year may appear large, but the contracts for iron 
already made and the extr lordinary expenses required 
will consume a large part before the end of this year. 
The financial condition of the Company is in the opin- 
ion of the Committee good, and if the contemplated im- 
provements be carried out, together with the completion 
of the Raleigh & Augusta Road, we can see no reason 
why in the early future good dividends should not be 
paid.

PRESIDENTS REPORT, 



Offick Raleigh & Gaston R, R. Co. 
Raleigh, N. (\ JalylS. 1875. 

To the Stockholders of the 

Raleigh & Gaston Railroad Company : 

Gentlemen: — The President and Board of Directors 
submit for your consideration and information their 
twenty-fifth annual report with the reports of the Su- 
perintendent, Treasurer and Auditor: 
The receipts have been 

from Freights, $181,910 94 

" Passengers, 71,201 12 

" Mail, 8,029 70 

Total earnings, $261,141 76 

Operating expenses, 165,082 05 

Balance, 196,109 71 

This exhibit, as compared with last year's operations, 
shows a decrease in receipts of $13,661.60. The falling off 
wa£ less than we anticipated or had reason to fear, as the 
policy of the North Carolina Railroad will be, and has 
been, to divert all its local as well as through business to 
the Danville Road and over its own lines; therefore, we 
need not look or hope for revenue from that quarter; but the 
completion of the new line to Charlotte and Wilmington, 
over the Raleigh & Augusta Air Line Road will give us 
new and valuable territory from which we will be able to 
draw trade, and we confidently expect a large increase of 



PRESIDENT S REPORT. 



business from that source. We liave expended a large 
sum, $86,162.22, in improving your property during the 
fiscal year just past. We have laid 12 miles of new rails, 
built a new bridge of the Howe Truss pattern over Crab- 
tree in the place of an old lattice bridge, and a new and 
convenient passenger shed at VVeldon. We have built 
three new passenger and baggage cars and another baggage 
car nearly completed, all equal to any cars in use on any 
Road in the country: overhauled and greatly improved 
the Freight car and Locomotive equipment, adding very 
much to its efficiency and the value of your investment. 
The condition of all your property, we are gratified to be 
able to state, is now far better tlian at anytime since the 
close of the war. For full details we refer you to the 
tables appended to this report. The amount expended 
for improvements should be credited by the sale of old 
rails, of which we have on hand some 500 tons, but their 
superior quality and the depressed state of the iron trade, 
induced the Directors to withhold them from the market 
for the present. We still have in the Road over forty miles 
of rails that have been in use at least twenty-three years, 
which must at anearly day be renewed. The Board for this 
purpose have ordered the purchase of 1,000 tons rails to 
be delivered this Summer, as recommended by the Su- 
perintendent in his report. The Board deeming it wise 
and prudent, have created an investment fund to meet 
the interest on our mortgage bonds and for any other 
contingency that may arise, and will carry the surplus on 
hand, after paying for the rails required to that fund. The 
completion of the Raleigh & Augusta Air Line to the 
Carolina Central which we hope will take place at an 
early day, will enable that Company to pay its interes#on 
the guaranteed stock held by us in said Company. We 
have sold $476,000 of our mortgage bonds at par and in- 
terest on account of our subscription for guaranteed stock 



PRESIDENTS REPORT. 



of the Raleigh and Augmeta Air Line Road, of which we 
hold 5,000 shares bearing the same rate of interest as our 
bonds. The interest on the stock held by us has been 
paid by that Company. As soon as that is completed there 
will be no necessity for an investment fund beyond a 
small amount required to meet ordinary emergencies; the 
surplus may then be declared and paid in dividends. 

The Raleigh and Augusta Air Line Road is now com- 
pleted and running some fifty-seven miles, thirteen miles 
having been finished since your last annual meeting. 
Forty miles more will take them through to the Carolina 
Central Road touching that Road at a point some five 
miles east of Rockingham, which will give us a direct 
communication with Charlotte and Wilmington. It is 
hoped and believed that this will be accomplised with- 
in the coming fiscal year. 

The people of Clarksville. Va., and along the line of 
the old Roanake A^alley Railroad having obtained char- 
ters from the Legislatures of Virginia and North Caro- 
lina last winter for the purpose of rebuilding that road, 
from Manson, a point on j'our road, to Clarksville, a dis- 
tance of twenty-two miles, are now earnestly engaged in 
raising funds for that purpose, and contemplate organi- 
zing their company at an early date. Encouraged with 
a subscription of fifty thousand dollars to begin with 
they will make proposals to your Company for operating 
the road or for some other aid. In view of that fact and 
to facilitate and expedite matters, we would suggest that 
the Stockholders authorize the Board of Directors to ac- 
cept, with power to carry out any proposition that may be 
made to them which they shall deem to be to the interest 
of your Company. 

The citizens of Oxford and the people of the county of 
Granville are making an earnest effort to build a road 
from Henderson or some other point on your road to Ox- 



10 



PKKSIDE.VT S REPORT. 



ford, to be extended to Hillsboro or Roxboro. This line 
if built would be a valuable and considerable feeder to 
your road. We would advise such encouragement and 
aid be given to it as you maybe able to render. Should, 
however the Roanoke Valley Road be rebuilt, it would 
bo best for your interest to urge the extension to Roxboro. 
From a point on that road this line would run much nearer 
Oxford than it is from Henderson to Oxford, and the 
Oxford people could make their connection at much less 
cost. This arrangement would afford more advantages 
to your Company, and furnish railroad facilities to a 
greater extent of country. Every section of our State feels 
(hiily the great need of railroads, and w^iilst our people 
are less able to build them than heretofore, without them 
we can hardly hope for or expect immigration into the 
State, except along the lines of the completed roads. Your 
road possesses and offers to immigration advantages not 
to be had on any other railway in the State, for it passes 
through a high and healthy region of country well water- 
ed with never failing streams, with sufficient timber for 
all i)urposes, is free from malaria or miasmatic diseases, 
has a great variety of soil, from the light sandy loam to 
the stiffest clays, producing luxuriantly all the cereals, 
grasses, tobacco and cotton. The vine is natural to the soil, 
fruits and berries come to the highest state of perfection 
here ; all parts of the road are within less than 26 hours 
of New York, 23 to Phiadelphia, 20 to Baltimore, and 8 to 
Norfolk, Va. Its proximity to the great centres of trade 
with the advantage of easy communication to any and 
all of them, and with fixed low rates of transportation, 
must and will at no distant day attract the attention of 
setlers who will but admire and desire to locate in such 
a country. The report of the Treasurer was made up to 
the 31st of May, the end of our fiscal year. On the 1st of 
July the interest on our mortgage bonds matured and 



tresident's report. 11 



was promptly paid ; this amount of course was paid 
out of the surplus funds on hand. We congratulate the 
Stockholders on the auspicious future which is opening 
for our roads, ^vhich must make their property valuable 
and independent so soon as its connections are perfected. 
In conclusion, we take pleasure in adding testimony to 
the intelligent, efficient and zealous manner in which 
your Superintendent, Master-Mechanic, Roadraaser and 
the other offtcers and the employees of the Company have 
discharged their several responsibilities and duties. 
Respectfully submitted by the order of the Board, 

W. J. HAWKINS, President. 



SUPERINTENDENTS REPORT. 



Raleigh & Gaston Railroad Company, 

Superintendent's Office, 
Raleigh, N. C, July 1st, 1875. 

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

Sir:— I have the honor to submit the following state- 
ments showing the operations of the Road for the year 
ending May 31st, 1875: 

The earnings have been as follows : 
From Freights $181,910 94 

" Passengers 71,20112 

" Mails 8,029 70 

Total $261,141 76 

The operating and other ex- 
penses for conducting 
Transportation are $59,388 65 

Maintenance of Way 49,064 42 

Motive Power and Maintenance 

of Cars 44,440 43 

Miscellaneeus as per Treasur- 
er's report 12,138 55 

Total operating and otlier ex- 
penses $165,032 05 

Or a little more than 63 per cent. 

Leaving a balance over operat- 
ing expenses of $96,109 71 

The tables in the Auditor's and General Ticket Agents' 

reports will exhibit the mileage, tonnage, &c. As you 



superintendent's report. 13 



will see by comparison with the previous year's operations, 
our receipts have fallen off $13,661.60. This is attribut- 
able almost entirely to opposition and cut rates at Raleigh. 
We also had some thirty-three hundred dollars of govern- 
ment transportation last year over the year just closed. 

The road-way and track have been much improved 
during the year. We have put down twelve miles of new 
rails (53 pounds) on that part of the road needing it most 
(Sections 2, 5, 6 and 11.) The best of the old rails taken 
out which could be used for repairs have been used on 
other portions of the track where we still have the u 
rails. We have used in repairs 33,786 cross ties. 

I most earnestly recommend the purchase of 1,000 or 
1,200 tons of new rails. The demand required by the 
road owing to the rapid wear of the old iron now nearly 
twenty-three years in service, and the low price of new 
rails makes the present a very opportune one to make 
the purchase. We still have over forty miles of old rails 
in the track. 

The bridges are all new and in excellent condition ex- 
cept the bridge over Neuse River which is a lattice bridge 
and should be replaced with a Howe Truss at no distant 
day. This bridge has now three spans. With a Howe 
Truss and a span of 192 feet and change of one of the 
abutments we could make the crossing at the same or 
less expense than at present, with a great saving always 
in future. 

PASSENGER SHED. 

We have during the fiscal year just passed, erected at 
Weldon, a neat and comfortable passenger shed, at a cost 
of $1,500, covered with corrugated iron which adds much 
to the protection of the Company's property, and the 
comfort of the travelling public. 

water. 

We are now erecting, whenever we can do so at a small

cost, water rams, to furnish our supply of water. We 
have now on the road, four rams, with a combined daily 
capacity of 1 4,4/30 gallons. This water is pumped at a 
cost of less than one-fifth the cost of that pumped by hand. 
The Machine shops are in excellent condition. We 
have, during the past year, built a large stationary boiler 
for the machine and blacksmith shops, at a cost of $2,127 
33, the old one having been condemned. During the 
3'ear we have taken in the shops and repaired nine en- 
gines. All of our engines (13) are now in good condition 
except nos 3, 4 and 7. No 7 is now in shops under re- 
pairs — no 3, a small engine bought in 1852. is very much 
out of repair, and I doubt the economy of re-building it. 
No 5 is in running order. No 10 having been entirely 
re-built, is now a first class engine in every respect.

SUPERINTENDENT S REPORT.

945 miles at an average cost of $0 583 for repairs per mile. 

THE SHOP TOOLS 

generally are in good condition. We need a large wheel 
press, as the one we have is inadequate to our present 
work. We also need a heavy 40 inch lathe for turning 
axles, boring driving boxes and other heavy work. The 
one now in use being very much worn, and nearly unfit 
for service. The purchase of the above tools is almost a 
necessity to enable us to do the work of the Company 
required. 

Our passenger car eqipment has been very much im- 
proved, having been thoroughly overhauled, and most 
of the cars repainted. We have now two (2) new Pas- 
senger Coaches with all the modern improvements that 
will compare favorably with any cars in the Country, 
built at our own shops at a cost of less than $5,000 each. 
One new Baggage Car completed and another nearly 
finished, which are handsome and convenient cars. 

Built 3 new Box and 3 new Flat cars. 

Our Car equipment consists of 5 first class Coaches. 

5 Second Class Coaches. 

3 Conductors Cars. 

1 Express Car (extra.) 

4 Baggage, Express and Mail Cars.

88 Box Cars.

THE TRAINS 

have run with great regularity, no loss of life or an ac- 
cident worthy of notice. I have been very much aided 
in the discharge of my duties by the indefatigable efforts, 
zeal and attention rendered by the Master Mechanic, 
Road Master and other ofiicers and employees of the 
Company, who deserve commendation at your hands. 
Respectfully Submitted.
