The Augusta and L?ureos Railroad.
The happy scheme so recently proposed
of building a Railroad from Augusta,
via Edgefield C. H., to Laurens C. H., is
attracting tho attention and winning the
undivided approbation of everyman at
all interested in the welfare and prosperi
ty of the country, or whoso possessions
will.be enhanced by tho running of this
road in proximity to his real estate. In
fact, we have not as yet heard a single
dissenting voice. Everybody in this -vi
cinity is delighted w-ith . the route pro
posed, and feels the utmost concern in
seeing it built. And it can and must be
built. Augusta wants this connection,
Edgefield wants it, Ninety-Six wants it,
Laurens wants it, and the people all along
the route want it. Everybody is willing
tb contribute- money, land or labor ;
the amount of money required can be
raised, and all that is now necessary to
inaugurate the work is to hold meetings
along'the line of road, have the proper
Committees appointed to present the
many advantages of the road, and solicit
subscriptions. These Committees could
soon canvass their respective localities;
in a short time they could call a conven
tion of th e Stockholders ; this convention
could elect the President and Directors,
the Company would be duly organized,
and all proper arrangements made for
the commencement of the road.
To Laurens, Ninety-Six and Edgefield
this road is of the utmost importance in
giving them an easy outlet to the outside
world, an excellent market, and cheap
transportation for their products," and the
delivery at their very doors as it were,
of their plantation supplies, groceries,
<fec, to say nothing of the enhanced value
of their property, and the thousand and
one-conveniences they would enjoy by
having Railroad facilities. But to Au
gusta, the construction of a road over
the route indicated, would be of untold
benefit. Say that equitable arrangement*
could be made with the Charlotte, Colum
bia ?fe Augusta Railroad for the use oj
their road-bed from Augusta- to Pine
House Depot, the distance then from
! Pine'House Depot to Ninety-Six, via
Edgefielc". is only thirty-five miles, and
would course through a rich and well
cultivated farming belt, and one ovei
which a road could be constructed at's
cost far below the average amount re
quisite in the building of Railroads in
this country. On reaching Ninety-Six,
and there intersecting the Greenville &
Columbia Road, Western Carolina-Ab
beville, Anderson, Pickens, Greenville,
and their teeming vaUies-the great natu
ral tributary to Augusta, would be open
to the comp?tition of that city, and a vasl
amount of cotton, corn, ?fee, <fec, now
forwarded to Columbia and Charleston,
simply because tho people in that section
have no other outlet, would in a trice
change its long accustomed channel and
land in Augusta. And' then when the
road, is completed to Laurens, (only about
twenty-five miles farther on,) still an
other very desirable portion of Carolina,
-a magnificent cotton and grain country
-would be of ready access to the favorite
cotton mart on the Savannah.
In short, Augusta cannot afford, ki thif
day of her enterprise and prosperity, tc
db without this grand connecting link
towards the achievement of her future
greatness and grandeur.
Thc Road intent h? built.
Thc Laureqsville Herald has caught
the railroad mania, and talks railroad ir
the following strain :
PROPOSED RAiLROAD.-Everybody's at
tention is called to an article,* which wc
clip from the Edgefield Advertiser, ii:
reference to a proposed Railroad Iron:
Augusta, Ga., via. Edgefield C. H., tc
this place. We learn that the citizens o:
Augusta are thoroughly interested it
this undertaking, and fully appreciate
the benefit that will certainly be secured
. to that city by the completionof the road.
The good people of Edgefield prefer il
to any that has yet been suggested tc
meet their wants-and, as the Road is tc
pass by Ninety-six, wo doubt not thal
the citizens in and around that place will
give it their influence, supported by thoi;
What will the people of Laurens do'
We cannot afford to let so good an oppor
tunity escape us. Friends from a dis
tance" are ready and willing to help us, i
wo only show a disposition to help our
selves. The importance of this Road t<
tho people of this County cannot be over
estimated. It is tho very one that w<
want, for Augusta is proverbially one o
the very best of markets whether fo:
buying or for selling. For tho want o
Railway facilities our merchandise lan
guishes, our products have ceased to
bring us their accustomed profits-ou
property has depreciated in value, am
the interests of the County, in ever
particular, have suffered. * The outl?
which we heretofore had is under tin
control of a Ring that holds no symua
thy with us. That Ring is deaf alike to
the wants of our people and to the claim
of honor pledged in the purchase of th
Laurens Road. But the remedy to th es
grievances is at hand. If the citizens c
Laurens County are frilly alive to tliei
true interests, there will be no hesita
tion in embracing the offered aid c
friends, who would link them with th
busy marts of the world. Augusta an
Edgeiield are calling to us, and asking i
we aro ready for the enterprise. Wh
can doubt it? Let every man think c
tjhis Railway proposition, and, considei
mg it wisely, let him preparo to aid i
with a large and liberal subscription.

could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning to the policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portion of the premium charged as was found unnecessary for the
purposes of the business and the complete security of the Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are exces
sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ?
Availing themselves of this experience, the Directors and Managers of the Universal
Life Insurance Company, at ita organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor
dance therewith, and whick Bas proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was
necessary to meet the requirements of the business. These premiums are about twenty
five per cent, lower than those ebarged by. Mutual Companies.
It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so'.established were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, and not in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders in Mutual Companies, that any profits arising from prudent manage
ment justly and properly belonged to the stockholders ci the Company, for the risk
incurred by them in undertaking the business.
Experience bas shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business
which theory will not admit of being considered as elements m the calculation of the
premiums. These results from a saving in the mortality of the members of a Com
pany owing to the medical selection of good lives, a gain in interest on the investments
of the Company over that assumed in the calculation of its premiums, the profits
derivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policies by the members, and from other
Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of $200,000, and do
ing a fair amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in ex
cess of what were counted on by ?he Directors of the Universal at the time of its
organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide among the policyholders of
the Company a largo part of the profits accruing from the sources named, all of which
have heretofore been divided among the stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division isi as follows : Every person who may hereafter
insure with the Universal m?, for the purposes of division, be treated as a stockhol
der to the extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and will share tri the profits
of (he Company lo precisely the same extent-as a Stockholder owing an equal amount
of the capital stock, . _
By this system of Insurance, original with the Universal, the policyholder secures
the following important advantages :
FIRST. Insurance at the regular " Stock" rates, requiring a primary outlay of
about twenty to thirty per cent, less than that charged by Mutual Companies, and
which is equivalent to a yearly " dividend" paid in advance of that amount on mutual
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of $1,517,000. To
effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Company would have cost them an
initial outlay of $2,000,000. By allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this excess of $483,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a " dividend" of
$483,000, and paid it, too. in advance, 'instead of at the end of one or more years. It
is impossible to find'any example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so
low a cost by returning to its policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipts.
SECOND. Participation in the legitimate profits of the Company, upon apian which
secures lo the policyholders the same treatment which Directors and Stockholders award
lo themselves. This system of participation, in connection with the low " stock" rates
of premium, must necessarily secure to the policyholders every possible advantage to
be derivod from prudent and careful management.
The low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation,
guarantee to the policyholder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost
in well managed mutual companies ; while, by the proposed plan of participation in
what may be considered the legitimate profits of the b'"ine3s, the cost will be still
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation in
the profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY offers insurance at its lowest practicable cost.
jpy Those of the existing Policyholders who desire tb participate in the Profits
under the new Plan can do so by making application to. the Head Office, or-to^ny of
the Agents of the Company. <
