COUNTING THE ELECTORAL TOTE.
EXCITING SCENES TN THE SENATE AND HOUSE
WADE AND BUTLER FIGHT FOR THE MASTERY -
THE VOTE OF LOUISIANA AND GEORGIA-WHAT
CAME OF rr.
WASHINGTON, February 10.-At one o'clock
the senators, arin in arm, went into the hall of
the House of Representatives. Wade took the
chair and Colfax was seated noar him. Sena?
tor Conkiiug aud Ropreseutives Wihtou, of
Iowa, and Piuyn, acted as tellers. Pruyn read
the Democratic votes; Conkling and Wdson al?
ternately rc .Ording the Republican votes. All
went ou smoothly until Louisiana was reached,
?when Mullina, of Tennesseo. objected, declar?
ing that no valid election had beeu held.
The joint session separated, and the House
vote!, one hundred and twenty-six to sixty
three, to count the vote of Louisiana. The
Senate, after a severe struggle to draw in ex?
traneous matter, voted to couut Louisiana.
The Houses again met and proceeded with
the count until Georgia was reached, when
Butler objected, because the Georgia Electoral
College had not voted on the proper day and
for other reasons. Much confusion ensued,
which Wade ended by ordering tho Senate to
its own dumber.
The House then voted, noes one hundred
and fifty and ayes forty-one. that the vote ol
Georgia should not be counted.
The Senate after a most perplexing and
laughable struggle declared, in face of the
concurrent resolution concerning Georgia, that
the objeotion made in tho joint session was
out of order.
The Houses again met in joint se-sion in ab?
solute conflict. Wade ordered the vote of
Georgia to be read as directed by the concur?
rent resolution. Butler objected. Wade
would hoar no objection. Butler appeal ed
from Wade's decision. Wade would allow no
appeal and ordered tbe count to proceed.
Butler moved that the Senate have permission
to retire, which was raled out of order. But?
ler insisted that tho House should control its
own hall. Amid tho most intenso excitement
Wade ordered the count to proceed. Conkling
commenced reading tbe result, but his voice
. was dro?roed by enos of order. The
noise became dcafoning, when Breaker
Colfax sprang to the dosk. proclaiming that
the Vicc-Presideut must bo obeyed in joint
session, and ordering tbo Ser?e.int-a?-arms to
arrest all disorderly persons. Colfax was or?
dering and appea inp for probably two miuntos,
during whioh time the dergeant-at-arms had
distributed his men all through the House be?
fore partial order was lestorcd. The reading
of the result and the proclamation of the
election fy Kow ed, the Houses separated, and
the Senate immediately adjourned.
IN THE HOUSE, Butler introduced a resolu?
tion that tho action of Wade and the senators
was a gross invasion of tbe rights of the House,
which resol utiou was pending when the House

TITI; SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD
Annual Meeting of tile Stockholders.
The stockholders of the South Carolina Bail
road Company roassombled at ll A. M. yester?
day, in thc ball of thc Southwestoru Railroad
Bank, pursuant to adjournment.
The minutes of thc previous meeting were
read and confirmed.
Mr. Welsman submitted the following report
from the committee t? whom was referred the
report of tho President and Di rectors, with the
accompanying documents :
The committee to whom was referred the
report of tho President anl Directors of the
South Carolina Railroad Company, with thc
documents accompany tut; it, aud tho resolu?
tion of James C. Iiu.mes. Esq.. respectfuiy
report that they have given to tho same tho
consideration which tbe short interval allowed
to your committee would permit.
Under the circumstances so generally affect?
ing the receipts of railroad companies South,
as explained ?n tho report of the President
and Directors, thc committee find cause for
congratulation that the result of tito year's
operations, as compared with tho30 of 18SJ,
show so small a decrease, and this they ate
satisfied has boen accomplished only by a wise
and econo nical administration of the affair's
of thc company in every department.
Notwithstanding tbero has been a vigorous
competition with olhcr roads for the traffic
which this road formerly enjoyed without a
rivul-rendering necessary tho extension of
through connections at "reduced tariffs of
freight, and there has been a decrease in tho
receipts of tho road, yet tho operattug expen?
tes have been kept at nearly or quite thc same
ratio of decrease.- your property has boen im?
proved, and tho Dtr< ctors have" been enabled,
Irom the net earnings, to apply the euri of
$238 651 09 to the reuuetion of tho general in?
debtedness ot' tho compaay.
Upon the subject of dividends, the commit
too concur with tho Board of Directors in the
conviction "that the trae interest of tho stock?
holder lies in the combined application of net
earnings to thc reauctiou of debt aud improve?
ment of property;'-they, however, take leavo
to express thc hope, upon tho adjust mont of
the past duo debt (which they have reason to
believe will shortly beac:ompliahed), and with
tbo improved prospects of the road, that thc
time is no: dissent when the stockholders un?
reasonably expect tho paymonl of dividends. '
Tho committee feel warranted m recommen?
ding tho adoption of tho following resolution :
Resolved That the report of tho President
and Directors and tho papers accompanying it,
are highly satisfactory, as chowing a contin?
ued improvement in tho condition of the com?
pany, and that its affairs have been conducted
ID its various departments with ability, econ?
omy and ztal for the interest of the stock?
With reference to Mr. Holmes' resolution,
the committee are of opinion that as tbe Board
of Directors hive adopted a plan for the ar?
rangement of tbe sterling djbt (resomUins in
some of its details a plan some years since
proposed by Mr. Holmes), which has becu
submitted to tho bondholders, and their agent.
Charles M. Furman, Esq., is now in England
for the purpose ot perte -ting the arrange?
ment, it is .nexpedicnt at this time to proposo
a plan for the adjustment of thc debt.
J. T. WELSMAN, Chairman.
JNO. H. HONOUR,
A. O. ANDREWS.
Charleston, February, 10,18t>9.
Mr. J. G. Holmes, in seconding tho motion
fer the adoption of thc report, said that the
committee had taken tbo very course iu rog-ard
tohi8plan of debt adjustment which he had
expected, but that ho desired to have it record?
ed ou the minutes, that ho did now bring be?
fore the company, as ho did in 1857, a scheme
by whi?h the debt could bo gradually paid and
at the same time a semi-anuu;-.! dividend ho
declared, even if tho company did uot carn
any more than it did iu thc year just past.
The report ot thc committee waa then unani?
Mr. Rostou Clarkson submitted tho follow?
ing report from tho committee appointed to
consider thc report of tho President and Direc?
tors ol' tho ^outhwosteru Railroad Bank:
Tho ommilteo appointed upon tho raport
of the President aud Directors uf tho South?
western Railroad Bauk have duly con-jidered

While your oominiUee regret the loss sustain?

B. D. LAZARUS.
Ou motion of Mr. Alonso J. Wnue, the report
waa unanimously ae'opted.
Colonel HioLard Yeadon thou ara3e and said
that bo wished to be informed in regard to an
important point io the aff tirs of tho company,
upon which the ro ort of tho Presideut and
Directors of the Railroad vas entirely silent.
Without intotiding to find any fault vita tho
directors hu folt compeli? 1 to inquire what was
the ooudttion of things between '.ho South
Carolina Railroad -Company and mc Columbia
and Augusta Railroad Company, between
which oompauiod there haJ been much litiga?
Thoro waro many rumors afloa*, and bo
would like to know tho laois ot the case. Tho
South Carolina Railroad Company had been
defeated, he believed, in. most of the steps
which they had taken ia the courts,
had heard from one of tho couusol
the Columbia and Augusta Railroad C
pasy tint two offers had been made to
South Carolina Railroad Company by the
Iumbia and Augusta Railroad Company for
use of tho track of thc South Carolina I
road between Gram te vi Ile and Augusta. 1
proposal was to give the South Carolina Ii
road a pro raia share of the receipts of
Columbia and Augusta Ri i trend between
lumbia and AHgusta. The other was to f
the South Carolina Railroad Company $100
fer the use of their track to Augusta. B
propositions, he understood, had been reji
ed. If it was a settled matter that tho Colt
bia and Augusta Railroad were to be permit
to build a separate track, it was certainly
the advantage of the South Carolina Railr?
Company to accept one of these propositia
It there ?vere good reasond why both tb
propositions should have been refasod,
would like to know them.
Wi J. Magrath Esq., the President of the ro
said that he was happy to answer the icq
hes just made. He had requested Gene
James Gonner, tho solicitor of thc road,
make a statement to the stockholders ?j? t
position of the company in regard to the 1
galion with tho Augusta Ra.lroad. He wot
therefore leave the reply to that portion of t
interrogatory to him, but rs to the propo
tions which wcro said to have been made,
wished to speak pointedly and plainly. ]
denied most emphatically that either one
thc other had beeii made.
Colonel Yeadon said ho could only rep
that ho had the statement from the Hon.
G. Memmingor, counsel for the Columbia ai
Augusta Railroad, and if these propositio
had not been made, he would like to km
fri'Lii thc President what propositions hi
Mr. Magrath answered that it was known
Mr. Memminger that Mr. Johnson, the Pres
dent of thc Columbia and Augusta Railroa
had offered to give the South Carolina Railro:
Company for the uso of their track betwe<
Graniteville and Augusta, whatover the trait
ortho Columbia aud Augusta Railroad Con
pany might earn between Graniteville an
Augusta. To this proposition it had been r
pliod that thc offer amounted to nothing, ar
that the Columbia and AcgustaRailroad ha
never even offered a pro rata of tho amount i
earnings between Columbia and August
There was never anything said about a mone
compensation; and Mr. Johnson had neve
claimed thai his offer to give thc South Can
lina R.'ilroad what his trains earned belwcc
Graniteville aud Augusta meant to give th
South Carolina Rai'road Company a pro ra'
share of what was earmd between Columbi
and Augusta. In rei'eronco to Mr. Monomie ga
it was due to thc directors to say that, in on
of his arguments in court, Mr. Memminger ha
made thc same statement in rogard to thc tw
propositions which had been repeated hort
and that the correctness of the statement wa
thou and there denied.
Mr. E. W. Seibels, of Edgofield, said that h
was afraid that thcro had been more persona
feeling manifested in lae conduct of the dis
pute between tho two companies than was fo
the i.itcrcst of thc South Carolina Railroad
Ho said that tho interest of thc up-countr,
seemed to bo ignored, and tho railroa?
seemed to be managed by tho om cars o
tho company exclusively in tho interest of th
large stockholders in Charleston. The cursci
of the up-country against tho South Carolin:
Railroad had been deep and loud. Thc peoph
complained that no sufficient facilities wen
given lo tho planters. He said that if ho hat
timo togo into tho history of tho charters o
1827 and 1828, he could show that the Soutl
Carolina Railroad had no right to contend tba
it was a violation of their rights lo build i
road from Columbia to Augusta. He paid tba
tho privilege of granting a new charter wa:
always reserved to the public.
The Columbia and Aucusta Road, however
had been constructed, and thc Legislature hat
granted a charter in 1838 and agaiu in 18CS
and the road progressed until 18C7 before th<
South Carolina Railroad said a word about it
Wheio a party allows obstructions to be erect
ed, or permits any interference with thoii
rights, and inlcnd to resort to the coutts
they should give proper notice. But thc Soutl
Carolina Railroad Company bad remained qmc:
for nine years, willie tho Columbia aud Augusta
Railroad was being constructed, mid dtrin;
a part of that tims the propositions of Ibo Co
Iumbta and Augusta Railroad, tor a compro?
mise bad been silently if not favorably enter?
tained. Theil, su i-leuly. au inj unction hui
beeu applied for, and Carried to thc Supreme
Jo Mt aud lhere defeated. Ju.?go Phill
was then applied to by tho Columbia and Au?
gusta Railroad Company tor a jury to ai*scs?
oauiaees. And it might bo said herc that tin
South Carolina Railroad Comoauy, lu going tc
Augusta, wcut out of tho direct hue to touch
at Graniteville, while tuts point was cn tbe
must direct linc of thc Columb a and Augusta
Ba hoad from Columbia to Au^ue'.a. ile had
talked with the foreman of tho jury, and lie
had said that tho jury had w il kori ncir.y tho
whole way from Augusta to Gr.initovillo lo find
out what damages .vere done. It was
the opinion of tho foreinau that no
damage ar all had becu done, but on
tho contrary the construction of tho Colum?
bia and Augusta Rnlroad had been a positive
bout-tit to tho South Carolin? Railroad. The
jury, bowevor, had found a verdict fer the enor?
mous sum ot $110. To-inorrow tho tamo judge
was to bc applied to in order to have tho ver?
dict of the jury sot asidu, and the case referred
to another jury. With what prospects of suc?
cess? In hts opinion, and that of mauy per?
sons in that section of country, the n.x. jury
would fiud a verdict of twenty-five cc-ts. Here
was a fino prospect for both roads. What prob?
ability Wu8 there that thc lawsuit would ever
be terminated with fjurtccu or sixteen lawyers
employed, and railroads for thou- clients? In
bis opiuiou it could result iu uotbnig i ut ex?
penso and disaster to thc South Carolina Rail?
road Company. Even ii they succeeded in
carrying all their poiuis iu court, what good
wouid bc accomplished? Tho Legislature
nould do as they propose to do about thc
Charles.un election-pass an net that their
I i-ido was rirtht and all tho* did w.-ie legal, mid
i the other sido n as wrong mid .ill they did ille?
gal. Under such circinus.anees he thought il
useless to contend against thu Co.umbin mid
Augusta Riuroad, bm-ed a-t it wa* hy tbe Le?
gisla, ure, and ho h. d intended to uffir a resu
HitMti to refer it to tho president and .hroctors
to consider thc propriety of making ii junction
or compromiso of &ouio Lied wibi thc Colum?
bia and Augusta Railroad, lt was not reason?
able to expect that after tho Seato had gr .in ol
a Char er to a company to build a io id from
Columbia to Augusta, and tiad'eudorsod the

million dollars, and most ol' that money had

Bi vor was under contract, tho Logia! ature
would allow nil this money to bu Milu wu away,
whtcu would be the practical rcsuU of tue su?
cass of the South Cat olma Rai road Company,
in their appeal, based on Inc ground that tbo
Columbia aud augusta Railroad Compauy lind
no right to hi lld a road irom Columbia tb Au?
gusta. He did nj. mean to censure any one, bul
he hoped that mo president ?-nd directors wou.d
lake this subject into serious consideration,
and al>o the comp'aints against tbe road tor

ol tho p.incipal arron!s for Peruvian guano
in this city, tuat not moro than one-third as
much guano was sent over tb South C uohna

reasou was that thc road offered no lacdilioj

were complaints on all sides, and they
President Magrath, in reply to Mr. ?
said, that if the complaints spoken of r
to tarina, be would challenge comparim
those of any other road. As for the sta
about there not being moro than one-t
much guano moving on the road this
last, if that were true, the road must have
more guano last year than ho had any i
The fact was that be had never before t
much guano on the road as there was a
ent. jin regard to the two thouaauc
bought in Bal timor} and shipped v
vanuab, he contd eoe no reason ii
transaction whatever, and would like t
it explained. The turin's on the South
na Railroad and the Georgia Railroad we
same and their regulations tho same
road was suffering now for want of c
transport merchandise, because the car
filled with guano and retained at way si
as warehouses, because tho consignees
guano failed to receive it at the propel
To alford such facilities and storage as th
t eman from Edgefleld would seem to <
would tako at least ono hundred addition,
at a cost of $100.000.
Hon. George A Trenholm also replied I
Siobels. He said that ho was willing to
legal questions to counsel learned in th
but that the best reply to the public cl
against the road for tailing togive certain
?ties was the fact that tbe stockhi
of tho road bad not received ono dollar ol
deud since the close of tho war. The
been furnishing the public with thefacihl
the road at the mere cost ot keeping u
road aud defraying the expenses of transi
lion. If thc company had been a mutual
efit concern, with an agreement to r
shippers all money over and above expom
would not have been a botter arrange m ?.:
the public. Tho stockholders had fm
cd tho public w i th all the advantages
great railroad at mero cost, whilo
shares had fallen in valno from $10
$25. aud yet tho great public was
satisfied. Must thc stockholders go a til
ther and put their hands in their pocke
satisfy tho clamor of the people? Tho i
clamor had been made in Edgofield Dis tr,
the closo of the war, when the very men
clamored against tho road for charging twi
five conts for carrying a sack of salt for
hundred and twenty miles, were therua
receiving from $1 50 to $2 50 for hauling a
of salt twenty-one milts. When tho com
was brohea down and nearly ruined, and
road destroyed, the same class of men cia
ed because tho road charged as mucli
freight from Hopkins' Turnout to Charle
as the peo le who clamor d charged for I
ingfrom Hopkins'to Columbia. Wo wot,
the yo.r round, carn nothing, and meet
with long faces, becauso we have no divide
and yet the public is not satisfied. I n
tain that this company has doue its duty U
I am not going to entor into thc detail
the dispute betwoen this road aud tho Colut
sfnd Augusta Hoad. But m regard to Mr. Ji
son, I will say this : I was one of tho best
firstfrionds that biB scheme had. I subscr
one-fifth of tho entiro capital of the road,
I have always been wilhng.to moot him on
nud liberal ti rois. But he nover came.
Johnson said, " I am going to build a i
ni opposition to your roau, and wben i
finished will take away not only your b
noes between Granitcvillo and ?ueusta,
one-half of your business between Augusta

I did not consider these liberal terms at
Mr. Johnson wrote to me personally about
matter, and I replied to him personally
told bim that his offer was equivalent to tali
away half of our business and give us in rei
one-tenth of what he took away. I could
consent to any such proposition. Could y
directors, for tbo sake ot popular clamor, lit
untrue to their constituent!!? The thing
absurd on tho taco of ic. We were wiflin;
make money out of Mr. Johnson, but could
make a bargain .vith him. Wo had paid
City of Augusta $250,000 for the Privileg?
building our bridge across the Savani
River. We had built that bridge at
great expense, and it was incumbent u|
air. Johnson to pay us something corres po
ing to the expense wo had incurred. The C
of Augusta had bound itself to us not to all
any other road to cross tho river at Augus
Those rights and privileges were valual
Wc had paid for them. Was there any imp
pnety in going hilo the courts to enfu
them, merely because tho people, clamo:
against it ? Let thom clamor. We wi
nothing but what is riebt, just and rcasonal
Who, that is a man, would yield bis lights

Mr. W. A. Courtenay arc se and said :

points of his complaint against the South (

Ho charges that tho citiatvis cf the inter

usuat quantities of guano are being ulF..r
lor transportation, larger in amount than
any previous season, Uial tho c ipacity of l

difficulty crows out of thc delay at ?ill inion

Other Facts and Figures with Reference
ta the Extension of the Spartanburg
and Union KaUroad.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
As far back as 1836, tho leading spirits of
South Carolina were interested in locating a
line of railway from Charleston to the North?
west. Accordingly the services of General
McNeil, with twelve brigades of engineers, were
engaged to reconnoitre the several gaps
through the Blue Ridge, and to report the re?
sult of their surveys and mvestigatioas. This
work was performed with much deliberation,
and after a minuto reconooisanoe of all the
principal gap* of the Blue Bidgo range, irom
Virginia to Georgia, it was decided that tho
Butt Mountain Gap afforded by far the most
practicable pass through which to construct a
raihoad. Tho primo object of the first movers
in this grand euterprije being to ascertain the
nearest and cheapest hoe upon which to con?
struct a railroal that would unite Cnarlcston
and Cincinnati, it was agreed that the pnnci
pal poiuts should be Columbia, Uuion, Spar?
laiiburg, Asheville, thonco down tho Pronch
Broad Valley, &c.
It may be remarkable that nevor, from that
day to this, has tnere beeu so thorough, so
completo and so scientific au investigation
mude in regard to this matter. Ic is well also
to (.bsorve that all the States interested in thc
construction of this grand national highway
have, from the dato of this general survey to
which I have alluded, boen localing and build
in tr their roads with reference lo tue lino then
established. Tho Spanauburg aud Uuion
Road, to itu present terminus at Spartanburg,
follows that line, varying from it only iu this :
Thu original survey was made un tho opposite
side of tho B oad River, from where the road
was finally located. Nonh Carolina ii build?
ing her road down tho val.ey of the French
fioad to Pain' Roc ?. East Tennessee is budd?
ing hers from Paint Kook to Morristown and
<;umoor'.and Gap, thence to Lexington and HO
on lu Cincinnati. Subs?quent to this general
survey ot 1896 tho r roue h Broa a Bu hoad
Company, tu 1859, employed the services of
Mr. R. McCoila, one of the most distinguished
civil engineers in tbo United States, to resur
v< y the hue from Asheville to Spartanburg. via
Butt Mountain Gap, and to make an estimate
of thc cost of budding tho road between these
The result of this latter survey was oven
more satisfactory than tho former. It was es?
timated by Mr. .ucCalla that tho entire road
from Spartanburg tu Asheville could bo built
at a cost of ono million three hundred and
eighty-seven thousand niuo hundred and
oiuhty-livo dollars ($1.337 985). And to show
tho confidence that was placed in thc correct?
ness of this estimate, a compauy of respect?
able and wealthy cit zens of North Carolina
agreed to contract for tim building of tho road
at .h.s estimate of its cost, and ru give a boud
of uno m .lion do,lars for the speedy and fiith
tul perfoinianco uf tho work. Had it not been
