THURSDAY MORNING. JANUARY 7, 1869.
Tiie South Carolina Railroad Company
and the Columbia and Angosta Rail?
Most parson* are aware that for more
than two years the courts u. the State have
been frequently invoked by the South Car?
olina Railroad Company and the Columbia
and Augusta Railroad, in relation to the
rights claimed by the latter corporation in
the course of the construction of its road
from Columbia to Hamburg. Technical
legal proceedings are of but little interest
to the general public; but in the rroceed
ings of which we speak, the principles in?
volved are so important, and the develop?
ments have been so startling, even to the
mos: unprejudiced mind, that it has be?
come a matter of consequence that the pub?
lic should have in its possession a state?
ment of the facts of the case, from its be?
ginning up to the adjournment of the jury
of assessment on Saturday last.
The Columbia and Augusta Railroad was
first incorporated in 1858, and in 18C3 its
charter was amended by the General As?
sembly. Under this amended charter the
company was organized, and is still carried
on. Work upon the road was begun, and
iftcr this had progressed for some time thc
Columbia and Augusta Railroad claimed
the right to cross the track of the South
Dardina Railroad at Columbia. Tho South
karolina Railroad contested this right, and
proceedings irv the courts of the Slate were
ti onoe instituted. In these proceedings
.wo leading questions were discussed. 1.
ff hot her there could be the valid grant of
i charter to the Columbia and Augusta
Railroad; and 2. If there could be such a
grant, whether a road might be built, under
that grant, from Graniteville to Hamburg,
rae Court of Errors, in deciding that the
Columbia and Augusta Railroad had the
right to cross the track of the South Caro
ana Railroad near Columbia, decided also
.hat the former company could connect,
->y railroad, the towns af Columbia and
Hamburg. But in giving this decision, the
seurt held that the privileges so given to
:ho Columbia and Augusta Railroad were
o be used with extraordinary care, and in
subordination to the rights and privileges
if the South Carolina Railroad Company,
?vhich sheuld not be disturbed in the free
ise and enjoyment of its own read for the
egitimate purposes of the business con
emplated by its charter. So far, as te the
iction of the Court of Errors of the State
if South Carolina.
Between the time of the delivery of the
lecision of Chancellor Carroll-before whom
he case was first heard-and the time of
he delivery of the decision of the Court ef
? nore, the Columbia and Augusta Railroad
eade application before Judge Aldrich for
he appointment of five oommisiioners te
alue the lands of the South Carolina Rail
oad Company adjacent to the depot of this
ompany at Graniteville, in order that the
ight ef way over those lands might be had
y the Columbia and Augusta Railroad for
onstruoting their road acoording to their
harter. Judge Aldrich refused the appli
ation : first, because it was not made in
roper form; and second, because there
ras no evidence that, in granting a charter
o the Columbia and Augusta Railroad, the
legislature intended to take away any of
tie rights of, or affect the grant which had
een made to the South Carolina Railroad
'ompany; and, moreover, -that the laud
rhich the applicant sought was not neces
ary for the purpose of completing his road,
'he court also said that the directors of
be Columbia and Augusta Railroad did
ot themselves think that this right of way
t Graniteville was necessary until they
ound that they were prevented by the
louth Carolina Railroad from moking use
f a temporary track, when, to save haul
ag a distance of half a mile, they, by a res
lution of their board, changed the main
rack and made the diverging track the
The General Assembly of the Slate, in
ieptember last, passed "AE aot to declare
be manner by which the lands^ or the right
f way over tbe.lands, of persons or corpo
ations may be taken for the construction
nd UBes of railways and other works of
uiemal improvement." The eighth section
f this act is as follows :
VnT. That no lands or right af way which
tave heretofore, or may hereat ter be, procured
or tho construction or use of any highway shall
ie considered exempt from liability to coa
lemnation; but the risrht Of way over tnid land
md acro68 or along such right of way may be
iosdemned for the construction of any other
lighway: Provided, That in tbe construction of
inch other highway there be no hindrance to
ho uso and enjoyment of the highway for
vhich such lands or right of way were pre?
ciously procured; and in all such cases notice of
ho application for a jury shall be served upen
be president of the corporation whose lands
>r right of way sball be required, or upon any
lirector or local agent of the corporation.
So the case stood when the Columbia and
Augusta Railroad made a motion before
fudge Platt to condemn the lands and right
of way of the South Carolina Railroad, for
;he construction of the track of the com?
pany between Graniteville and Hamburg
rbis motion was refused, because the no
ice required by the act of 18G8 had not
>een given. The Columbia and Augusta
Railroad, nevertheless, and without any
(Tarrant of law, entered upon the lands and
right of way of the South Carolina Rail?
road, and proceeded ' o work upon them
,n the construction of their road. The
proper notices to desist were served by the
South Carolina Railroad, but proved inef?
fectual; and the South Carolina Railroad
then filed a bill in a Court of Equity, pray?
ing that the Columbia and Augusta Rail?
road be enjoined from prosecuting the said
work. Tbe hearing of tho motion waa un?
avoidably delayed, and after thc hearing,.
the decision of Judge Willard was delayed
by the pressure of other business. During
the whole of this time, the Columbia and
Augusta Railroad continued to work vig?
orously in constructing their road upon the
lands and right of way of the South Caro?
lina Railroad Company. Justice Willard,
as soon as was practicable, gave his judg?
ment enjoining the Columbia and Augusta
Railroad from entering upon the lands,
right of way, or any of the franchises of
the South Carolina Railroad for the pur?
pose of constructing the former road; but
giving to the Columbia and Augusta road
the "liberty to move for the dissolution
"of the injunction at any time before
"the hearing of the case, on proof that
"they have duly acquired the right to
"enter, for the purpose of^Sonstruc
"tion, upon the premises claimed of
"the South Carolina Railroad Company."
? motion was thea pending before Judge
Platt, of the Circuit Court, to condemn the
lands and right of way of the South Caroli?
na Railroad Company, under section eight
of tho Act of 1808. This question came up,
and the South Carolina Railroad made its
formal return, showing the reasons why ob?
jection was made; that the Columbia and
Augusta Railroad had np legal right te
enter apon the lands and right of way of
the South Carolina Railroad; that no such
right was given by the charter of the com?
pany; that no Buch right was to be presum?
ed or. inferred from the law of 18G8, section
eight, which reserved to the State the power
to oondemn existing franchises, but did not,
by a general grant of power to build a road,
carry with it a delegation of power by char?
ter to condemn a franchise already granted;
also, tb at such delegation, according to the
uniform practice of law, could only be con?
ferred by express enactment or necessary
implication; and that there could be no im?
plication, because it was susceptible of proof
that there were other nodes by whioh the
Columbia and Augusta Railroad oeald be
carried to Hamburg without interfering with
the franchises of - the South Carolina Rail?
road. The return furthermore sets forth
that, according to law in South Carolina,
when application was made to the courts
for condemnation of property in such oases,
and an objection was made os to the exist?
ence er propriety of the occasion fer the aid
of the oourts in enforoing that application,
a preliminary trial aid decision of the ques?
tion of legal right must be had; that in this
case the return of the South Carolina Rail?
road did set forth the gravest objections to
the precipitate action of the court, and made
it mest important to allow the determination
of the question of legal rights to preoede
the condemnation ef those rights; that in
the Court of Equity the question ef legal
right could be settled, and that the South
Carolina Railroad would consent to take up
the case out of tem time, and at any day
named, for its discussion and decision.
On December 4,1SCS, Judge Flatt made
his order, whioh has been published, sum?
moning the parties before him again on
December IO, and dedaring that the only
question which ho had to dispose of prelim?
inary te the condemnation was that of hin?
drance, as set forth in stction eight of the Act
ef 1808. On December 10 all the parties
duly appeared, and the affidavits of numer?
ous parties wer? submitted to Judge Flatt,
who, on December 17, made another decis?
ion, in whioh he ordered a jury te be em?
panelled for the purpose of assessing com?
pensation fer the lands and right of way
of the Soath Carolina Railroad required by
the Columbia and Augusta Railroad.
The jury was drawn at Edgefield Decem?
ber 31, and was summoned to bs im?
panelled at Aiken on 2d January,, so
that it was impossible?for the parties rep?
resenting the South Carolina Railroad to
appear and produce testimony. It was
urged to the Clerk of the Court that the
time fixed for impanelling the jury was
unnecessarily short, and could not fail to
work great injustice. Remonstrances and
protests, however, proved wholly unavail.
ing, and the jury was summoned to meet
eu Saturday last at twelve o'clock.
At that time (he parties representing both
the Columbia and Augusta Railroad and
the South Carolina Railroad appeared, and,
on behalf of the latter, the right of chal?
lenge was demanded, and the motion re?
newed for reasonable time, even until the
Monday following, that the attendance of
witnesses might be procured. Roth appli?
cations were at once rejected, and the jury
proceeded at once to assess the compensa?
tion due the South Carolina Railroad, not
only with respect to the quantity and value
of the lands, but as to the special damage
which the South Carolina Railroad might
sustain, by. reason of the crossing of the
Columbia and Augusta Railroad over its
lands and right of way.
No postponement was granted, no chal?
lenges were allowed, no testimony was pre?
sented to the jury, no witnesses were pro?
duced or sworn; and the only information
which the jury could have received was by
the cz parte statements of Colonel Johnson,
the President, and Mr. Moore, the Chief
Engineer of the Columbia and Augusta
Railroad, who were with the jury the whole
time, and were oonstantly and actively en?
gaged in conference with them. The result
was, that the value of the lands and right
of way of the South Carolina Railroad from
Orangeville to Hamburg-a distance of
twelve miles-and tho value of BO much
ground as was necessary for the construc?
tion of the South Carolina Railroad for a
distance of twelve miles, and the special
damages sustained by the condemnation of
the franchises of the South Carolina Rail?
road company, was assessed by the jury
at ONE HUNDRED AND TEN DOLLARS.
The South Carolina Railroad company
could not, of course, submit to this deci?
sion, and have made a motion to set aside
the whole proceedings as illegal, inequita?
ble and void.
WE PUBLISH this morning a second letter
from "Tax-payer," in regar.' to our railroad
system. Our position in relation to the
Savannah and Charleston Railroad is this :
The State is liable for the first lien bonds
and accumulated interest; tho road and
rolling stock are not worth the amount of
these bonds; the State, by moving thc first
lien bonds-the first lien being her security
for her endorsement-to the position of a
second lien, ensures the completion of the
road; when completed, the road will be
worth the old first lien bonds as n ell as the
new; the State will then be relieved from
oil responsibility. We agree with "Tax?
payer," that thc assistance of the State
should be cautiously given, and that all
roads which apply for aid or amendments
to their charters, should be placed under
such restrictions as will prevent them from
working deliberately against the interests
of the State.
TUE REPORT of the committee of the Le?
gislature appointed to inquire into the con?
dition of the Bank of the State, printed in
THE NEWS of yesterday, is especially clear
as to the liability of the State for the Fire
Loan bonds and for the bills of the Bank of
the State. The committee treat the fire
loan as a debt due by the State, and in re?
gard to the bills of the bank they say that
the whole issue must be assumed and paid
by the State, with the exception of the
amount tainted by rebellion, viz: Bills
originally issued prior to 18G0, withdrawn
from circulation and reissued after I860,
and all new bills issued after 1860, amount?
ing to $3,053,454.
