if any constituency has a inore active, hard

have in Col. Aiken. His best friends, however,
will admit that ho has mado some imprudent
speeches and published some letters they did
not approve, hut this will wear off, and wc doubt
if wo can find a better man, or ono who, on tho

[From tho Charleston Nows and Courier,
The Reorganization of tho South
Carolina Railroad-Now Life
and Hope for Charleston.
Tho long looked for pion for tho reor
ganization of tho South Carolina ltoitrood
Company is now before tho Charleston
publie. It is submitted by tho Now York
capitalists who own and hold a majority of
tho bonds and stock of tho company, and
contemplates precisely suoh notion as was
shadowed forth in tho Ncios and Courier
two or throo months ogo. Tho object is
to terminate tho ponding litigation os rap
idly os practicable, and piuco tho road in
position to overcome competition and aug
ment its business.
Thcro is no-denial of tho natural advan
tages of Charleston, but other ports pass
this city in tho raoo because they have
moro friends, moro oopitnl, larger connec
tions. lt ia evident ?hot, other things
being equal, Charleston, by reason of her
advantageous position nod superb Ocean
harbor, must soon become tho first Seaport
of tho South; und it is equally obvious that
Charleston cannot havo u fuir chunco, und
stand on un good footing as her rivals, whilo
her principal railroad is tangled up by litiga
tion, aud no foreign capital ia available for
doing tho work whioh hos been dono by
foroign capital in other Southern oitics and
on tho linc of railroad which feed them
with passengers nud freight. Charleston
requires absolutely iudepoudont connections
with tho West. Charleston requires rail
roads in tho highest condition of efficiency
for service, with their termini ou tho water
side and with wharves aud elevators suffi
cient for tho cheap aud easy handling ol
every description of freight. Charleston
requires a fleet of swift and commodious
steamships, entirely under tho oontrol ol
her main railways. Th eso oro indispensa
ble to rapid progress. They havo not been
had, because thc South Carolina Railroad
had insufficient means und poor credit, and
because thc concern, since it has boon it
thc Receiver's hands, is incapable of mak
ing permanent alliances or extensions, car
command no large sums of mouey, and ii
limited, in its operations, to suoh expen
ditures ns oro needful to moko travel snf<
and reasonably comfortahlo. In tho mean
timo, tho railways whioh ore unfetterct
rapidly strengthen their position, and gait
valuable advantages. There ?a no mystcr;
iu it. Charleston is hold back and tim
down by tho helplessness of tho Soutl
Carolina Railroad, and this hclplcssncs
will continue and increase as long as th
Road is iu thc hoods of a Receiver, iustoat
of being in tho keeping of tho representa
lives of owucrs who havo faith iu th
property, who oro ready to spend money 01
it, ond who canuot improve tho condition o
thc Road without improving corresponding
ly thc position of Charleston.
Thcro ia no need that this depvessin
atato of affairs shall continue. The Nc
York capitalists who aro roprescnled by th
Purchasing Committee, of which Mi
Harnea is chairman, oro prepared to pi
thc South Carolina Railroad on its fcc
nod thereby ensure thc growth and dcvo
opinent of Charleston! What oro thci
They propose, upon thc completion <
tho reorganization of thc oompauy, whetlu
by consent of those iutcrcstcd or ofter
salo of thc road, to expend about n millie
dollars in laying the entire lino with ste
rails; in providing wharves and depot
with the necessary clovators, on tho wat
Hide; in obtaining a ficct'of steamships, ot
in improving tho Western connections
tho company. If thcro bo no long dela
caused by refusals to ugrco to thc plan
reorganization, tho chief improvomcn
contemplated will bc oficotcd in timo f
tho opening of business this autumn. Tl
money will be derived mainly from ntl o.
scssmcnt on thc stock of tho Compon
Thia will amount to half a million dollni
Tho remainder will bc derived from the sa
I of icscrved bonds of tho first and scoot
! mortgage. One of three new stcomshi
for tito Charleston linc is nearly read
On a second steamship hnli tho work
done. Work on tho third steamship
begun. Nor is tho plan of rcorganisatii
a plan, and nothing more. Wo have ot
thority for saying that thc agreement h
been sinned by thc owners of nearly all
the undisputed Second Mortgage bonds
the South Carolina Railroad, by thc holde
of a majority of tho non mortgage bonds I
three million dollars of stock, and by boders
some of tho large holders of the floatii
debt. This baa been accomplished in
few days, und it is understood that tho Ci
Rank of New York and tho First Nation
Rank of Charleston aro ready to come i
This is tho best ovideuoo of tho geno!
aeccptabi).ty of tho plan of rcorganizatio
and of tho confidence of tho hold?
of thc hulk of tho property in t
standing and ability of tho Purchosi
Committee. It ia, besides, a guaranty
tho willingness aud ability of thc Ni
York stock holders to breotho new lifo ir
the road. Thia osscnt to tho agreement
a pledge of a oash contribution of thr
hundred thousand dollars to bo expend
on tho Road for thc purposes already c
Wo pass now to tho plan of reorgani:
tion itself, which is fully explained els
where It contemplates tho creation ol
First Mortgogo debt of 34,500,000, a Sc
ond Mortg go debt of S2,000,000 ond
Itioomo bond dobt of $2,000,000. Bohl
these bonds will come thc stock. With t
new first Mortgage (3 per cent, gold bon
whioh will readily sell nt par, if not ?I
premium, provision will be made for l
outstanding First Mortgogo debt of I
present company. Tho present itmlianui
Scooud Mortgage bonds, with tho aeon
interest to September, will bo converted
par into tho now First Mortgogo bon
Tho pr?sent Non-Mortgogo will lie cxchoi
cd, principal and interest os follows:
per cont, in tho Now Socond Mortgi
bonds, 30 per cont, in tho now Inoo
bonds (which receive G per cent, inter
Out of tho net earning;', or such lea
amount os may bo corned) and 20 per cc
in tho now stock. Tho floating debt of
present company, now scoured by tho <
posit of collaterals other than First Mt
gogo bonds, is to bo exchanged, prinoi
und intorcst, for bonds and stock on
same terms as tho Non-Mortgage boo
Tho stockholders aro required to contrib
in ooah ten per cont, of tho amount
their stock, for whioh thoy rcocivo Scot
Mortgogo bonds, and must Murrender twc
ty per oont. of their stook in oxohanco
the now Income bonds, receiving now stock
for the remaining 70 per cont.
It will bo seen at once that largo con
cessions are expected of tho holders of tho
Non Mortgage bouds, and tho floating dobt.
Tho conclusion was that bettor lonna could
not bo offered them without endangering
tho success of tho whole sohemo. Two
considerations ore suggested to thorny Can
they obtain moro by routeing to join in tho
agreement, and will not tho losses bu coun
terbalanced, in tho ease of looal holders, by
Tho selling value of tho South Carolina
Railroad must decrcaso rather thon in
crease while it romains tho subject of Uti?
gntion. This is tho result of tho loss of
basinoss or failure to augment business and
of tho frightful expense of such proceed
ing as aro now in progress. Any ono who
looks ot the array of couuoil iu tho United
States Court House and who knows tho
liberality of oounoil in fixing fees for each
other must look witli dismay upon tho con
tinuance of litigation. Assuming that thc
road, by reason of a refusal to nccopt tho
plan of reorganisation, shall romain in
Court for two or th reo yoars moro, it will
bring but a comparatively small sum ovor
and obovo tho First Mortgage debt. They
who have failed to sign tho agreement for
reorganization will get nothing but their
distributivo phare of tho proceeds of tho
sale. Tho non-signing, Non ? Mortgage
bondholders and stockholders will lose ev
ery penuy. Tho non-signing Second Mort
gage bondholders will get their proportion
of thc net amount realized, while those who
huve signed tho agreement will tako an
equal sharo of the proceeds and bo, by
purchase, tho owners of tho road, lt is
clear, likewise, that every ouo who has any
pcrmaucnt interest in Charleston will bo
largely benefited by tho life ond aolivity,
thc expansion of dade and iucrcaso of
population, that must follow tho reorgani
zation of tho South Carolina Railroad with
high credit and ample means. This bene
fit will moro than muko up tho loss involved
in thc agreement for reorganization. On
thc other hand, any failure to join in thc
agreement will cut tho local property holder
and mcrohant both ways, lt will diminish
or destroy the value of his bonds or stock,
and, by thc dangerous delay in extricating
thc South Carolina Railroad from its em
barrassments, it will lessen the value of
cvpry stick pud stouo in Charleston.
Tho Charleston public will watch with
thc deepest interest thc progress of thc
plan of reorganization. They seo in it
their ono bright hopo of making Charit ston
in this generation, a great, populous City.
They seo in tho means of repairing every
loss they have sustained, and of confirming
and deepening every element of prosperity.
Tliey seo in it, too, an opportunity to provo
the satisfaction with whioh Charleston be
holds tho prospective influx of Northern
capitol, and they will have no other wish
? than that thc investment shall bc profitable
beyond every present expectation. For
! Charleston much depends on tho success of
thc plan of reorganization, and every doy
that is lost is on injury to the City. When
the South Carolina Railroad shall bc onco
more under tho direction of wealthy ond
liberal owners, when tho laden cars shall
run to tho wuter side; when ul! tho Charles
ton steamships shall bo famous for their
speed and their ocoommudntious; when gi
ant elevators shall bo lilied willi golden
groin, nod tho mountains, which havo bar
red out ChorlestoH from tho West, shall bo
travorscd easily and speedily by trains
taking out immigrants and West Indian
products and bringing back brendstuffs and
provisions-then tho problem of a century
will tc solved and Charleston's grand fu
turo will be assured beyond peradventure!
All this and more Charleston con count on,
if thc New York capitalists who arc inter
ested in thc South Carolina Hu i I road bo not
balked or thwarted. Upon this hangs tho
future of Charleston! This is thc convic
tion, wc ure confident, of tho wholo body of
thc thinking, working mid property holding
people of thc city.
