The Blue Ridge Railroad.
The Board of Directors, in their annus
report jost published, notice in genera
terms the settlement effected with Creawel
& Co., the defaulting contractors, by mutua
consent, and then pass to a review of wha
has been done in the direction of completinf
the road. As a first step they made a con
tract in February last? with Mr. Thomaf
Steers, for Ur work on the line from Wal
halla to the North Carolina boundary, em
bracing a large proportion of heavy gradin?:
and tunnelling. They then pass to thf
financial problem, and say :
'?After diligent inquiry in New York, Messrs
Henry Clews & Co., and Mr. H. U. Klmpton, were
constituted agents for the company, with instruc?
tions to Inquire and report upon the practicability
of an early and satisfactory negotiation-of a por
tion or all of the State guaranteed bonds of the
.'In April, these gentlemen reported their bellcl
that a sale could be effected In Frankfort, Gt r
many, of the entire four millions of bonds, at
such rates as the company could accept, and ad?
vised a prompt preparation of said bonds and
their delivery; the earlier preparation of these
bonds having been prevented by causes to which
reference has been made in a former report.
"While the president was diligently engaged in
the execution of the bonds, and procuring the
signature of the comptroller general, who inter?
posed no delay, certain taxpayer? of the Sta'e ol
South Carolina instituted legal proceedings for
the issue of an Injunction against the Bald com?
pany and the said comptroller-general, before
Jndge Melton, and obtained a temporary order
therefor. The case coming np to be heard regu?
larly upon Its merl's, the Judge decided In favor
of the rights of the company, and Issued bis order
dissolving the injunction and dismissing the com?
plaint. An anp?al from this decision was threat?
ened, which caused a further d< lay o'f sixty davs.
"At the expiration or this time, further pro?
ceedings on the part of the complainants having
been abandoned, the execution of th? bonds was
completed, and the bonds were forwarded to New
York, too hvc. however, ror the company to ben
em by the negotiation which had been commenc?
ed, as the Inception of the existing European war
had entirely arrested the sale of American rail?
"The Boara ar Directors are reliably informell
that no such sale has been made, since, or can
now be negotiated.
"At a meeting of the Board of Directors, held
in the City or Columbia, in August last, Hon.
James L. Orr, General Wm. Gurney, and the
president, were appointed a committee to visit
the City or New York, and authorized to sell a
portion or the said bonds, or finding that imprac
tlcab'c, to negotiate a Ran of Ave hundred thous?
and dollars, by hypothecation, to meet the press?
ing financial necessities or the company. The
committee soon round that the sale or the bonds
was Imprac lc lble, ror the reason already stated.
After much labor and demy, the committee, how?
ever, succeeded in negotiating a small loau of
Arty thousand dollars to mee: estimates then due,
and other current expenses, with the promise on
t?te part or those with whom they had negotiated,
to make 'urthcr advances from time to time, until
thebouds could be s lld or the comp .ny should
make other arrangements.
. "On the 10th or September, 18T0. when the
president and Geueral Gurney bad.l?ft New York
on their return home. Mr. Thomas steers, the
contractor, without cause and without notice, In?
stituted certain proceedings agalast the executive
committee of the company and their financial
agents, claiming relier under his cooiract, god
tho appointment of a receiver of thc bonds and
atsets of the company.
"Those bonds which the committee failed to
neg?:ute were left in the possession of Mr.
Henry Clews, who had been appointed one or the
trustees under the mortgage for his signature as
such trustee, a portion thereof being hypothe?
cated under the authority referred to above, to
cover loans made by him ind Mr. Klmpton."
This account ol' tho attempt to negotiate
the guaranteed bonds of the company, dif?
fers materially from the version previously
in circulation. Three million dollars out
of tho four million which the State guaran?
tees, are not to be used unless throe million
dollars in currency, " or as much of that
"sum as shall be necessary," shall be fur?
nished "in exchange or upon th? security
" of said bonds." The mode of operation
is said lo have been this: One million dol?
lars of bonds, upon which there was no lim?
itation of price, were to be sold, aud the
money so realized was to be used in making
up the ditlereuce between the market prie?
of the remaining three millions and their
par value. Tuis pretty plan, however, fell
through. We suppose it was purely on ac?
count of Ute "inception of the existing
" European war."
The board state that the new surveys re?
duce the cost of completing the road and
will lead toa considerable saving in distance.
The trains on the road have run with regu?
larity ana safety, and the gross income has
increased steadily. Irl regard to connecting
roads, and with regard to the debt and lia?
bilities of the company, the board say:
"The corporations formlng-the connecting links
in thc States or Georgia, North Carolina and Ten?
nessee, still preserve their separate organization.
Thc proceedings or the annual meetings and or
ganizationor Hie Blas Ridge Railroad Company
(Georgia,) and or the Tennessee River Railroad

be judicious for the Blue Ridge Railroad Com?
pany, in 5>outh Carotins, owning the controlling
stock In each of these corporations, to effect a
legal consolidation as s.-on as possible, and for
j such purpose application Should be made to the
Legislatures or Georgia and North Carolina for
the necessary leglsl .tlon. The Knoxville and

for roi ling thc line or thc State or Tenucssec, on
that part of the road now in operation, should at

mend that a memorlil be addressed to the Legis?
lature of the State or Tennessee ror aid iu that
matter. It may be proper 10 add here that the
citizens aiong the Hue or the road lu Gi orgia have
subscribed from ten to fifteen thousand acres of
land, and also thc citizens of the State of North
Carolina from five to ten thoosand acres in aid
of this enterprise, with the promise to Increase
thc.r subscriptions to a very large amount when?
ever satisfactory assurances shall be given them
of the ultimate completion or the road. The
prcRldeot cr the company had intended to devote

"The board of directors hare had occasion, at
each annual meeting, to direct the attention of
the stockholders to the great advantage and obli?
gation of providing for the liquidation of the old
floating debt, particularly set forth In a report or
a former president or this road. Mr. John T. Sloan,
on the 1st of June, 1887, and also at least for the
payment of the due coupous of the first mortgage
bonds or this company, and maturing rrom ISCO
to 1861 to the present time.
"These bondi run thirty years, and rall due in
1S61. The act of September, 1868, provides ror
the payment ol this debt rrom the proceeds or the
first million or bunds auihorized^thereby, but lu
the judgment of the board of directors, such pro?
visions may be met by payment of the interest
due, and the deposit or an amount of the guaran?
teed bonds sufficient to cover the principal or an
exchange of the said last mentioned bonds,
which many holders are willing to accept The
president, by repeated assurances or the disposi?
tion and lstentlon of this company to provide for
an early liquidation of these demands, has pre?
vented many suits by Impatient creditors, but
such snits cannot longer be postponed, and the
executive committee Bhould be again authorized
and directed to make Borne arrangement by
which such a consummation may be reached.
"The liabilities of the company Incurred during
the terms of clhce of the present president and
disbursements are fully set forth tn an account
current accompanying this report.
"Upon the settlement of the contract with Cres?
well i Co., Hie railroad company were entirely
without cash resources, but Immediately made
arrangements with Mr H.H. Kim pion for n loan
of one hundred and fifty-four thousand dollars,
which enabled them to pay Creswell & Co., and
continue the work upon a moderate scale, ami
thus relieve the company from a discredit of a
total abandonment of their operations."
The work on the road has only progressed
at the rate of twelve thousand dollars a
month. In regard to the policy of Ute com?
pany and the importance of the road to the
State, the board say:
'This policy, however Judicious and demanded
by the condition or the company, has, perhaps,
not unnaturally provoked some Impatient criti?
cism at thc alleged Blowness with which the work
has been prosecuted. But these censures have
proceeded from persons who rather look to the
progress and completion of the road ror their own
advantage, than rrom those who are directly con?
cerned ia and responsible ror tts success; and
this board ts conscious that, in adhering to the
policy they have Indicated, they are but discharg?
ing the duty confided to them, and assuring that
final success which will put an end to all such
criticisms. And, although the boards have been
embarrassed by unforeseen difficulties, suchas
the reclslon of the Creswell contract and the
heavy expenditure consequent thereon, and other
contingent expenses, which could neither be an?
ticipated or guarded against, they appeal confi?
dently to thc stockholders for that approval of J
their courte which is due to rectitude or intention
and such vigor ol action as was permitted by the
means at their control.
"They cannot conclude this report without the
expression or their regret at what they cannot
conceal rrom themselves, and that Is, thc absence
or that Inte-cst In this great enterprise which,
many years ago, supported ard strengthened
the spirit In which It was then prosecuted. They
are perfectly aware that great changes have
taken place since this road was commenced. They
know that many who were strangers to us then
are now, and must be. active agents tn Its com?
pletion, and that the State which is to be benefit?
ed by the trade which lt must bring embraces
among its citizens thousands who, when lt was
conceived, could scarcely have taken- an intelli?
gent Interest In Us progress; but the board can?
not understand why this should affect the zeal or
energy of those who really love their native state.
Whatever may be the change ia her political con?
dition, those great laws which regulate thc con?
centration an i distribution of national wealth ore
still at work, an 1 upon Hie adaptation of these
laws to our Industrial energies must our material
prosperity depend. It seems to tlie board too
clear for argument that the growth of a great sea?
port In South Carolina can only result rrom the
concentration at some harbor "within her borders
ofthatWci-t Indian and South American trade
which demands, lu exchange for its own pro
duce, the flour, the corn and the bacon of the
West, aud that no such concern ration can bc
effected unlit such a harbor is put lu direct com?
munication with the great produce markets of the
West. To-day corn ls dull lu Knoxville at40
cents per bushel, wheat at 75 cents to $1, flour $6
per barrel, pork 0 cen?8, Br?sa, per pound, and
hay 75 cents per cwt. Cdmpnrc these prices with
the rates at which thesaratfarticles can bc sold In
Columbia and Charleston, and then, suppose HUB
road completed, add Its freight, and who can
doubt that the margin or profit would udd untold
wealth to ibo business enterprise or the Stete.
Indeed, thc tribute which the people or this State
pay to tlie enterprise or others In excess or
r eights aud costs of the necessaries of Hie In
every five years would furnish thc mi ans to com?
plete this road. Hut to make this enterprise a
complete success, and to Improve the natural ad?
vantages of loca iou, we must have, also, a direct
connection willi Chattanooga, the.groat focus of
Southern railroads. A practicable route ls odor?
ed us, ami a iluc regard to the commercial Inter?
ests of this State Imperatively demand or us to
secure at once (hat connection which puts our
people over the shortest line In direct communi?
cation with the great cotton belts, with St, Louis
and Chlcugo. and with the racitlc laliroads, uow
and s ion hereafter io be in operation. They do
not propose, however, to repeat tlie argument as
to the advantages of this ro td. All the past legisla?
tion or thc State lias been based upon a conviction
or Its reality, and they only a-k that those whose
foresight, perseverance and enterprise Inaugurat?
ed this work should not r.ow relax their i fforts or
abandon hopes nearer to day than thoy ever were
to realization. They must say, also, that they
have been painfully annoyed, and the work on
the road seriously embarrassed and retarded, by
a series of lawsuits, which elie repeated decisions
or the courts warrant them In calling pretensive

Tho New Circuit Judge.
Colonel R. F. Graham, of Marion, i3 elect?
ed Judge of the Charleston Circuit, and il
must be admitted that if he serves the peo?
ple, in the judicial capacity, as faithfully
and fearlessly as he served the Confederacy,
his term of office will be both honorable and
useful. The conversion of Colonel Graham
to Radicalism was somewhat sudden, but
upon this point no moro need be said. It is
expected of a judge that he hold himself
entirely aloor from the arena of politics, and
so long as Judge Graham holds the scales
of justice with an even hand, it will matter
little whether, before his elevation to the
bench, he called himself Democrat or Re?
