The; meeting was callod to order by
PresIdent R. E. Bowen, who read his
report of the management of the road
during hlia t'rm of office, whiub was
Thirteen mon ths ago we commenced
grading our road near Easley toward
Pickens, with 44 convicts; 6 of the 50
obtained being worthless, were return
ed to the penitentiary. I had no ex
plrience in railroad grading. I there
tore gave it up to the Chief Engineer
and General suporintondent and over
seer to manage the work and hands,
and I am glad to say that the work
hlas, I think, given general satisfaction.
The work thus far alis in no instance
exceeded tbo Engineer's estimate, not..
wit.htanding the strong opposition,
and many obstacles we had to contend
with. Some landowners refused us
the right of way, and some subscribers
hare been slow to pay. Consequently
our expenses have been greater than
our income. The Directors, however,
authorized the Treasurer and myself
to raise some money on the faith of
the subscribers pay ing up in full when
their last instalment wa3 due, which
we did and were thereby enabled to
purchase our goods and supplies gon
orally tt Wholesale cash prices, which
was a groat saving.
When we determined to go to work,
I had no thought of any apl)ositioin,
but on the contrary oxpected almost
every one that was able, to aid us to
some extent in this great enterprise.
But we have been met on some occa
sions, I am sorry to say, with strong
and obstinate opposition; but when 1
am as firmly in my opinion that an
enterprise like this is for the public
good, and that the future welfaro and
prosperity of our- counties, as well as
our SLato. deponds in a great measure
upon the success of it, 1 never swerve
from what I conceivo to be my whole
duty, the opinions of others to the

Colonel J. S. Cothran, of Abbeville Court
Rouse, was odiled to preside during the meet.
A committee of six was appointed by the

The report of Captain W. J. Kirk, Gen
eral Superintendent and Chief Engineer, was
then called for and submitted as follows:
On the 5th day of April, 1880, just thirteen
months ago to (lay, ground was first broken
in the construction of thisroad. For the first.
ten months of the period the work was con.
fined to a section of the line lying in Pickens
county, between the towns of Easley and
Pickens Court House. The charact.er of the
country on this division is very rough, the
main ridge being broken repeatedly by heavy
streams over lapping each other. On th is
section 6.6 miles are completed. Fifty con,
victs were leased from the South Carolina
Penitentiary on the 1st. April, 1880: In less
than five months their number, from various
causes, was reduced to thirty three. This
number formed the average employed upon
the work until 31st. January, 1881. On the
1bt February, 1881, these convicts, their
number at that time being reduced by expi
ration of sentence to 18, were removed from
Pickens county to Anderson county. and (lie
work commenced at Williamston and carried
on in the direction of Easley. The entire
section between Williamston and Easley is
suiooh and comparatively level, and the pro
gress of the work has exceeded the most san -
guine expectations. There are now 4.1 miles
ready for the ties and rails, there being in
this distance but one break of 125 fect in
crossing a small ravine. Thirteen and one
half miles only remain to be completed in
order to join the work already (lone at Easley
in the construction of the road-bed I have
adhered strictly to a uniform width of 14 feet
for cuts and 12 feet for embankments. This
is sutflicient for all practical purposes, even
allowing tor a loss, which somnetimtes occurs,
of 2 feet. in wid:hl on embankments by wash.

in the establishient of grades I have en
deavored not to exceel the maximum of' 60

however, inl order to avoid earthwelk of the
heaviest doscri)tioni, to go beyond this tigure
for liort. distances at several poits on th e
