drawn to him l)y his courteous manners and prompt transaction of business

man, and his many virtues of heart and head, and will point to his life and 
character as worthy of example by the rising- generation.

Report of Committee on Inspection.

IaIjEjgh. N. C, Jii.y: 




The C'omniitiec on lusiieclioii subinit the following report : 

That they have exauihied the rua:l and find that the traekinj^ is in a 
good and strong condition. During the year 12 miles of new ii'on has 
been laid, and about 14 miles of the track ha- been thoroughly ballasted 
with stone and gravel, and the whole line of the road is in as good con- 
dition as it has e^er been. 

The bridges are all in thorough repair and have Ijeeu will paintud, 
except the one over Neuse River, wh'ch althougVi perfectly safe, is now 
being replaced by a new Howe Triis.> Bridge. 

The depots are hi good order. Two new ones have been l)uilt : one 
at Forestville and another at Middleburg. 

A\'e w^ere glad to note a largely increased bu.>uiess from tin- iloauoke 
River at Casion, and would recommend that warehouse and utiit-r fa- 
cilities for handliug the freights at that point be iucreas?' '■ . 

The shops, under the pre^^ent efficient luanagemeui, hhvlH <^\vv\ 
facility for Keeping the rolling stock and machinery of the (.'ompany in 
perfect or 'er. 

They further report that they have examined the books andaccuunls 
of the Treasurer and Auditor, and ilnd iliem to be accurately and well 
kept, and tliat the proper vouchers are liled for all the payments. 

The statements of tile Treasurer tiled with Ms rejtort set fortii ac- 
curately the financial condition of the Company. From these it ap- 
pears that the net balance of earnings for the last fiscal year have in- 
creased, althougli the gross receipts have diminished. This is fortunate 
and in the opinion of your committee is reierable to the economical •^^•^d 
good management of the officers of the Company. 

The statement of the sinking fund bhows a decrease from last year, 
but the amount so decreased has beea applied to the payment of a like 
amount of debt ; and the statement of liabilities and resources of the 
Company shows a healthy financial coudidon. The early <'ompIetioii 
of the Raleigh & Augusta Au'-Line Road to a jiuiction v.M'th the (.'aro- 
lina Central will open a new line of traffic which it is hop'-d will large- 
ly increase tiie receipts of the Compans'. 

The last year ha<J been one of unparaUelkd ditticubics hi tiie fi'nm- 
cial world, which have effected Roilway Comp-fiic", ic;^'ei.hcr w\h 
every other line of busines.", yet wioh econom'c:il manajsment the 
prospects are good for increa:,e in the ba, iucii.i o.'trte Com^iuny for the 
ensuing )'eai'. 

It is a matter of congra'ailalion that there have been no a^^'-Mcnts to 
passengers or deleution orfre^'i-'iis on this I'.ie. aid t'-a^ t;-' ; Conioany 
can safely offer to the public as efficient accommo' al'on boLh for pas- 
sengers and freight as any other line in tisc counirv.

Report of President and Directors. 





ANNUAL REPORT. 



Office Ralp:toh & Gaston Railroad Company, 
Raleigh, N. C, July 20th, 1876. 

To the Stockholders of the Raleigh ^- Gaston Railroad Company : 

Gentlemen :— TliC Board of Directors respectfully submit their re- 
port for the fiscal year ending ]\Iay 31st, 1876. 
The receipts of the Company have been as follows : 

From Freights, 8170,780 41 

" Passengers, 64,009 20 

" Mail, ",275 00 

••' Miscellaneous sources 180 83 

Making total receipts, $242,245 44 

It will be noticed that there has been a decrease in receipts from 
freights of $11,130.53 ; a decrease in receipts from passengers of $7.- 
191.92, and a decrease in receipts from mail service of $754.70. 

The decrease in receipts from the transportation of freights and pas- 
sengers is due chiefly to the depressed condition of the country, whilst 
that reported as being from mail service is due to the fact that the re- 
port of the receipts from mail service of the last year embraced receipts 
for thirteen months service instead of for twelve months service, as is 
embraced in the present report. 

To counterbalance the decrease in receipts, the Board are gratified 
to be able to report that there lias been a marked decrease in the ex- 
penses of the Company. 

The statement of what has been usually classed as operating ex- 
penses, exhibits that there has been expended under this head the sum 
of $153,544.44. or $11,487.61 less than the previous year, whilst the 
total expenses of the Company have been $211,880.98, being $39,312.29 
less than the previous year — leaving a residue of net profit of $30.- 
364.46, being a net profit of $20,415.97 greater than for the fiscal year 
ending May 31st, 1875, notwithstanding the loss in revenue. 

Tt is proper to state that the expenditure of the Company includes 
$41,728.32, being the cost of 1,001 tons of new rails over the amount 
received from sales of old rails, and it also includes the cost of 24,265 
cross-tics, of one new baggage car, of ballasting twelve miles of track, 
and the purchase of real estate in Raleigh, costing $2,300. 

It was reported to the Stockholders in the report of the fiscal year

ending May .'{Isl. 187;"), that all the bridges \vcrc new and in excellent 
condition, with the exception of the liridge over Neuse river. 

'J'hi.^ bridge is now being replaced by a Howe's truss, and with this 
exception the Board are able to report that the roadway, bridges, 
machinery, cars, and other property of the Company are in excellent 
condition. 

Since the last annual report, the Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line Rail- 
road has been placed under contract to a point on the Carolina Central 
Railroad near the town of Rockingham, and will probably be opened 
to traffic early in October. 

On the 1st day of October last, Dr. W. J. Hawkins, under whose 
administration the affairs of the Company prospered for manj^ years, 
and to whose conception and active exertions the building of the Ral- 
eigh & Augusta Railroad is due, tendered his resignation as President 
of the Company on account of ill health, and the Board elected, to fill 
the vacancy, Maj. Geo. W. Grice, who had been for some years an ac- 
tive member of the Board. Maj. Grice at once assumed charge of the 
affairs of the Company, but on the 12th day of November he died sud- 
denly at Portsmouth, Va. In his death the Company experienced a 
severe loss, for united to administrative ability of no common order, 
he possessed the rare faculty of gathering to himself the esteem, confi- 
dence and friendship of his fellow men . 

Respectful!}^ submitted by order of the Board, 

JNO. M. ROBINSON, President.

Raleigh <!fc Gaston Kail Koad Company. 
Superintendent's Office. 
Raleigh, N. C. Juli/ Is/, 187(i. 
Jno. M. Rop.iNSOX, Ksy.. President R. <j- G. R. R., 

Sir : — In accordance with the established custom, I have tlie honor 
to submit the following report of the operations of this road for the 
year ending May 31st, 1870 : 

I was tendered the position 1 now hold on the 1st of November last. 
by the late lamented Maj. Ceorge W. Grice, President, who within a 
few days after my election, died suddenly at bis residence in Ports- 
mouth, Virginia. Tt was not my good fortune to have a long acquaint- 
ance with Maj. Grice, but the feAV days I was permitted to enjoy his 
confidence, convinced me that in his death the Company lost a valu- 
able officer, and I a sincere friend. 

The year just closed has been unusually severe on Railroads, and we 
with the others, have suftered. 

The receipts have been as follows : 
From Freights, §170,780.41 

" Passengers, 64,009.20 

" Mails, 7,275.00 

•• Sundries, 180.83 



Total receipts, $242,245.44 

Operating and ordinary Expenses — Conducting 

transportation, .$59,654.42 

Maintenance of Way 41,166.21 

Machinery Department, 30,956.38 

Salaries, 10,904.17 

Miscellaneous, 4,863.26 



Total, $153,544.44 

To which add other expenditures, including pur- 
chases of real estate, buildings, bridges, 
&c., as per Treasurer's statement, $16,610.22 

New rail, after deducting sale of old rails, 41,726.32 



Total expenses, $211,880.98 

Leaving a balance of $30,304.40 profit for the year, being a gain of 
$20,415.97 over the profits the previous fiscal year, notwithstanding 
our receipts have fallen off $18,890.32 from those of last year. 

The roadway is in excellent order. There have been twelve miles of 
new rails laid ; 24,265 new cross ties put in the track ; twelve miles of 
track -well ballasted, and nearly all the ditches well cleaned out.

W^ ■ Q^. 




There fire 1,87(3 cords of wood on hand, and about 3,000 cords of 
seasoned wood delivered but not yet received by the Company. 

A new water tank of 10,000 gallons capacity has been put up at Wel- 
don, the one there being much decayed, and always too small. 

A new warehouse has been erected at Middleburg, the new Station 
between Henderson and ^Nlanson, in obedience to an order of the 
Board of Directors. 

The contract for the construction of the bridge over Neuse River, to 
replace the old lattice one there, has been given to Mr. D. M. Renno, 
the builder who has reconstructed all the bridges on this road. The 
new bridge will be of the Howe Truss ; rapid progress is being made 
with this work, and we hope to be able to raise it in August. 

The people at Forestville, feeling the necessity of a warehouse at 
their place (the one they had having been mo\ed to Wake Forest) 
sought permission, which was granted, to bui'd a warehouse at their 
own expense, and they have built and paid for one alike c»-editable to 
themselves and tjie road. 

A cotton platform, which was much needed, has been built at Ral- 
eigh, facing on Lane and Salisbury streets, has already proved of great 
benefit to the public as well as to the road. 

The bridges are, with the exception of the Neuse, in good order ; the 
decks of tlie bridges over the 'Tar River and Cedar Creek have been 
painted, and the bridge at Jeffrey's run will be painted at once. 

Tlic machine shops are large and commodious, and have the capacit}- 
for any amount of work wliich will probably be required of them. The 
foundry is large enough for ordinary repair work, but I regret it is not 
sufficiently large to admit of casting our own wheels, which I think Ave 
could profitably do. 

The engines are generally in good repair. The No. 5 is now being 
reconstructed to be used as a shifting engine ; the boiler is completed 
and in the furnace, at a cost of 6038.6'2. Much of the remaining work 
is on hand. We have twelve engines for service, the No. 3 having been 
condemned as worthless. The following table gives the number and 
fliscription of each engine :

Our passenger equipment is in good order, and will compare favor- 
ably with any road in the State. 

The freight cars are generally in good order, and are kept m good 
repair. The following is a list of cars : 
2 First Class Cars. 

11 old Cars. 

2 new Baggage Cars. 

3 old '^ " 

3 " " •' as Shanties. 

1 " Express Car. 
88 Box Cars. 
43 Flat Cars. 
10 Gravel Cars. 

Besides the regular and ordinary repairs we have built for the Ral- 
eigh & Augusta Air-Line a new Baggage and Express Car, and one for 
this road at a cost of $2,360.79 each, and converfed three old box cars 
into shanties for use on the Raleigh & Augusta Air-Line, and have built 
9 section cars. We have also reconstructed 5 box cars with Winslow 
roof to replace old numbers, and five fiat cars. 

We have been singularly fortunate, having had no accidents to life or 
property ; and it gives me pleasure to testify to the faithfulness of 
officers and employees in all departments. 

Respectfully submitted,
