8 AV Aim AH AND CHARLESTON
Annual Meeting; of the Stockholders.
The annual meeting of the Savannah and
Charleston Railroad Company took place- j ester
day, at 12 M., at the hall ar the Planners' and Me?
chanics' Bank. The majority or the stock being
represented, the meeting was called to order,
Andre-v simonds, Esa., in the chair, asdS. W.
Flshei, Esq., secretary. The minutes of the last
annual meeting were read and confirmed. The
president's and superintendent's reports were
read, and the treasurer's exhibits presented,
which, on motion, were accepted, and ordered to
be published. >k
ronara ANNCAL REPORT?OF THE PRESIDENT OF
TBS SAVANNAH AND CHARLESTON RAILROAD
CHARLESTON, February 8, 1871.
To the Stockholders-la conformity with the
by-laws, the president and directors submit their
report ot the operations of the eompany for the
fiscal year ending December 3lat, 1870:
Qros3 earning for the year.$147.345 29
Operating expenses for the year. 89,989 94
Excess or earnings. $57,355 35
By the terms of the contract ror rebuilding, the
road was to have been opened to the Junction
with the Central Road, near Savannah, on the 1st
It was delivered to us on the nth day of March,
1870-a loss of three months and eleven days or
the most productive season of the year, subse?
quently the contractors attempted to retake the
road; and. at One time, actually obstructed the
Susage of the train over the bridge at Savannah
Iver. TMs failure on the part of the contrac?
tors, their subs, quent vexatious proceedings, and
the malicious circulation of reports that the track
was unsafe ror passenger trains, caused great em?
barrassment and a loss or from $12,000 to $ i5,ooo
per month of profits for four months.
Notwithstanding these adverse circumstances
we show an excess or earnings of $57,355 35 on
not more than nine months of through business,
which ls more thin equal to the interest on the
funded debt for that period, and showing that if
we had been saved from the less of not less than
$40 ooo Inflicted, by the contractors, there would
have remained,- arter payment of Interest for the
wholeyearvahonsldertiliJesnm tobe appropriat?
ed to the reconstruction and equipment Of tho
road. The Northern through travel was uuusual
ly light during the mouths of November and De
cember, and. everything considered, the result to
the ?lose of the first year gives satisfactory as
surance of future success and prosperity.
A comparison of our operations with those of
1869 will show the following results:

Excess or income for 1870.$62,293 7 s
It will te remarked that the receipts from pas?
sengers in 1870 are five times the receipts fur 1869,
while the increase of frelgh* li rather lesa thau
one and three-quarters the receipts or I860..
-This disparity must be accounted ror ny- the
incomplete state or the road, the want or ?oonec
t.on with the Atlantic and Gulf Road at .>avau
nah. and the want ora bridge over the Ashley
River, at Charleston. The company has not been
In a condition the past year to. make either or

A bul to eaabre tors company or Its assign* to
construct? roasTXrOto-the Oeniral Rail road toaud
across the Savannah Tdver.-at or, above sister-,'
Ferry, was passed by both houses of the Oe .rgta
Legislature. The Governor vetoed the bill, it ls
hoped ander a misconception of Its object. Mea?
sures will bs taten to pass tr_e bill tn thc next
Legislature, and it ls believed that the authority
will he granted. Asimilar bill was presented in
the Legislature of this State to construct a road
rrom the Savannah River to Yemassee. on the
Savannah and Charleston Railroad, lt was re?
ferred to the com mit iee ?rn railroads bot no report
iras made upen it. Measures have been taken to
resuscitate this bill, with good prospect of sun?
less. A project so important and so necessary to
the Interests of trade and commerce-shoulu com?
mend Itself to every legislator .or enlarged views.
No aid is asked fro Tn either State to construct Hie
road rrom Temassee to Millen, but simply tue
privil?ge of supplying a link walch will uiake a
continuous line of railroad from Charleston to
Marshall. Texas, which is the terminus of the
Southern Pacific. Such a conned ton leagre.it
public requirement, and cannot be long delayed.
A new and most important connection ls
proposed by Mr. Wm. P. Clyde, of New York.
Ue proposes to ruo a flrst-olass weekly passen?
ger steamer batweeu Cedar Keys and Uavaua.
This route wlH be mach more expeditious than
the present one, and will involve a sea voyage of
only thirty hours. Tue, matter ls now under con?
sideration by the different railroad companies
Interested. w?h every prospect that thc object
will be accomplished, A'contract has been cou
clnded with Messrs. Drane A McDowell to per
mic them to transport phosphates, uud phosphate 11

the terminus at St. Andrew'a They have built a
track from their works to our track, and are now

south of the whan used by the company, for the
reception, and shipment or their phosphates.
Other parties have -applied to know ir simllnr
privileges, will be granted, and the rapid develop

The transportation or phosphates bida fair to be a
moat important source of revouue.
Allusion was made ia my last report to the 11
revenue expected to be derived rrom our colored <
population; the resuit has justified my pre
diction. A reference tb the report of thc superln
tendent will show tnat nearly three-fifths of the
passengerfK transponed over our railroad wore

A carefuller usai of the report er the engineer

the road afr the conuneaceoioot of the lost fiscal
year, and what, has "been done since towards re?
construction and equiumrnt. During the year
the reconstruct lon of the tnrk, draw bridges,
trestles, Ac ic, has been continued mid con
eluded, aibl the wtiole work ls now In excellent
and .satisfactory condition. The expenditures for
reconstruction and equipment have necessarily
been verraaige, but they were indispensable, and
the sum 30 expended ia just so much addition to
the permanent value of the property or the com
pany, faa the expenditures bereifter will only be
for ornhfary repairs. The principal items of ex
peodlrnre may oe stated as follows :
Amount pild lor reconstruction of
road, cross ties, timber, station
houses, machine shops, houses for
road,hands, car shops, engine house,

The difference between these debts and liabilities,
and the trae value, of thc company's property,
will show their true condition. This appears by
the books, as fellows:

Bat lt docs not follow that thc cost is the tra?

And this amount represents the Interest or
the stockholders at a value estimated most libe?
rally against them.
The property.iwlthout reference to the prospect?
ive advantages or H connrction with Augusta and
with Millen, will, lt lu confidently believed yield
an Income equal to seven per cent, on It's debt
and this surpius.value or the property. To do this
a net Income ot not more f. an $1309 per mlle ls
necessary, and this may be reasonably calculated
The only cause or anxiety in the affairs or toe
company arises from the unfunded debt. Upon
all of this, except/ ?20,000, we are paying
Interest ? at a rate not less than twelve per
cent, per annum, anil the average on the
whole will equal that rate. This must not .be
allowed to continue. So much as ls chargeable to
reconstruction and equipment, which ls nearly
the whole, should be funded. The mistake made
in the first Instance was in limiting the leane
the se vender cent, first mortgage bonds to $ soo
OOO,' Instead of $750,000, :and that mistake- mus?
now be remedied. *
The only available asset which caa be Immedl
ately applied to this debt is $50,000 of the
mortgage bonds still held by the company. They
may be sold, it ls believed, to realize $40,000, and I
recommend their sole and application to this pur
pose. I (urtber recommend the issue of $200
of bonds payable lo five years, with semi-annual
coupons for interest, at the rate oT eight per cent
per annum, and that these bonds be distributed
at par among the stockholders, rateably, accerd?
lng to the number or shares of eaefe.
If this ls done, I see no difficulty in rapidly pay
lng off the remainder or the debt, and thereafter
whatever surplus Income there may oe, will right
fully belong to the stockholders.
The value of Incorporated company stockt
always depends upon the value of ,
corporate property after payment of the cor
porare debts. We Bee that tn one instance

tion more than fifty per cent, of Its par value
By a special provision of oar chai ter, the dlrec
tlon ls authorized to hypothecate, or assign and
transfer, by way of mortgage, the stuck and
certificates thereof to secure the repayment
the cost of reconstruction, A '.
Having this, in view, the direction have hereto
fore Issued certificates of subscription, and have
stated on the face of said certificates that "the
certificates of shares are retained by the dlrec
tlon under this power to hypothecate the capital
In point of fact, the stock now stands pledged
for the protection or those who have so liberally
aided tbe-oompany during the past year.
I recommend that certificates or the capital
stock banow Issued, disoharged from this power
of the direction,"upon tne stockholder receiving
at par and paying for his rateable proportion, a
cording to the number of his shares, of two han
dred thousand dollars of eight per cent, bouda
The effect of this will be to give t lie stockholder
a clear, unrestricted scrip for his stock, and eight
per cent, bonds for the lull amount he Is required
to pay, which security and stock he may then
dispose Of SB he shall see proper cr Cud?farina
OWL interest. The adoption br ens suggestion
puts the management;'dr each-onS'i atrelrs under
lits own control, and leaves the company free
from embarrassment to pursue a career of future
prosperity, which will advance the stock to par
before the maturity or any of Us funded debt.
If the company shall adopt my recommanda
Uons, the estimates and future policy will be
that the annual earnings, without other than the
preseat connectons-though elie road is.incom
plete, wanting a bridge at Charleston, and three
miles of road to reach Savanuali-win pay thc
operating expenses, and not less than $1500 per
mlle. There ls reasonable hope of this result, and
lt will, ir realised, leave a surplus, after paying
Interest on the whole debt, of not less thau $60
Dooper annum. With ? sufficient portion or thia
io accomplish the purpose; I propose to create
sinking fund for the redemption uf the 8 per cent
bonds, to bc Invested annually in those bondt
The animaTappflcatlon of $32,000 lu>this way,
the bonds can be purchased at tiO per cent., will
accomplish the result. The remainder of the In
come may be distributed in annual dividends to
the stockholders. Whatever additional Income
there shat' be from the connection between
Charleston and Augusta by the Port itoyal Road
which, hy the term, of Its charter, must be cost
pleted by the first, day of Au rust next, I propose
to app y to the building of the bridge over the
Ash ey, and to apply the additional income from
the connection between Savannah and Augusta
to the comrdetlou of the connection with the Gulf
road. But I do not propose ever to contract any
debt for these purposes.'
After the redemption of the eight per cent
bonds, and the completion of the connections at
Charleston aud Savannah, the stockholders may
hope for as large a division of profits as ls likely
to be yielded by any other Southern road.
I take gc eat pleasure lo bearlug testimony to the
emcleaey and fidelity with which the officers in
charge of the several departments, and those em
ployed under their direction, have discharged
their dunes during the pasi year.

K will be romerobered that our lost recoxd of
the trial of the Beaufort commissioners or elec?
tion closed with a statement by Mr. C. e. Wright,
United States assessor, that he discovered BO less
than three prominent handwritings in the changes
on tickets rrom Bowen to DeLarge, tanning
through, boxes from precincts fifty miles apart.
Mr. S. ?. Millett, ex-president of the Port Royal
Railroad, testified that he voted the Reform
ticket at Beaufort, and for C. 0. Bowen as
the .candidate, for Congress. Previous to the
election had many conversations with one
of the comm'ssloHors who WSB a bitter partisan,
and, while the latter did not say he woold staff
the ballot-box, he did strongly Intimate ?hat lt
would be useless for anybody to "batt against
him or his party." Thit was the common talk
around Beaufort. Witness did not profess to be
an expert, but was ramlllar with handwriting.
Knew that of Mr. Williams, one of the commis?
sioners, but was not so well acquainted with the
handwriting of Oleares and Langley, his two
-associates on the board. Witness here examined
"tfelceta from Gray's Hit, Cypress Creek, Beaufort,
Ac , and states that he discovers two or three
handwritings prevailing In those boxes. Would
not swear lt was Mr. Williams'a hand; but wit?
ness has seen bim write two, three or four hands,
lias seen him imitate the writing of Mr. Spin?
ner, oh United States treasury notes, so that one
could not tell the difference. Williams is the
greatest expert with a pon witness ever
a&w.^ There' are certainly three dur?rent
hands running tbcongh these boxes, and the
same person wrote the chatiges in alu Witness,
lrowever, could ?ot Identify anybody, because the
writing ls m pencil. On examination, witness
states that he was not a Bowen .man, but as be?
tween two evils, he voted ror C. C. Bowen. There
had been a great hue and cry against thc com?
missioners, and witness wrote to Governor Scott
that he considered lt a crowning crime to appoint
three such men to count votes, when two or them
were running-for office. Does not pretend to
recognize Wllllama's handwriting, because lt ls In
lead pencil. Had no interest la the result or the
trial, except that a great crime had been com?
mitted In the community which demanded
punishment. It was a common by-word in town
"Yon have got the voting, but we have got the
count." Witness now made a tn ore careful ex?
amination of votes in the several boxes, and tes?
tified to the remarkable similarity in the changes
from'Bowea to DeLarge which are everywhere
evident, in the People's precinct a great num?
ber or changes were la the identical hand ob?
servable In the Beaufort box, yet the two places
are forty miles apart.
Mr. H. o'. Judd was recalled to testily as to the
manner in which ho separated one precinct rrom
another, and was enabled to arrive at the results
reported by him. He stated that lt was done by
comparing the number or ballots and tnelr ar?
rangement, when strung, with the tally Hst fur?
nished by one of the committee or citizens who
had compared lt with the report or the commis?
sioners. There was one large bundle of 230 whloh
had no Indication as to where lt belonged. In
making an examination of the ballots, they were
kept absolutely separate. There Was no reason
why the ballot-boxes could not have been de?
posited in the county vault, as lt was In a perfect?
ly secure condition, and all the keys had been
tendered to the commissioners.
Witness testified that Bythewood told him Mr.
williams had promised to give him money to
keep away, and it was the reason why he (B.) did
not wish ta appear bstore the grand Jury. The
character of Bythewood for truth and honesty
was uaknowa to him, bat he was a common
drunkard, and had been incarcerated In Jail and
punished times without number.
Henry Pollitzer testified that while standing
back of the chair of Mr. Williams, one of the com?
missioners, while he was calling out the names on
the tickets, he saw Williams read rrom a mis?
printed or blurred ticket* the mmes or Scott and
Banaler, but omit the name or C. C. Bowen, which
waa less defective than the other two. Thought
the omission a very strange one, and spoke of the
fae several times tn Beaufort.
John Proctor, a deputy marshal, testified that
he was sent to Beaufort to arrest the ballot-boxes
and bring them to Charleston. Ou the evening
of the 5th-Of January, he round thenTBtored under
the house or Mr. Williams, one vf. the commission?
ers, with'the excepUon of twp, Which were nsed
to prop up a boat near by. There were twenty?"
four la all. . Tuey were examined oraton these'
premises, then put upon a cart and carried to the
house of Mr. Judd, where they were further ex?
amined by two carpenters by..wuom they wer?
constructed. . These carpenters Stated that some
alterations had been made in the jinxes since they
were turned out of their hands, and called atten?
tion to.some or the nails which did not correspond
with those originally drives. They also gave wit?
ness several of the nails as specimens of those
used by them lu ? the construction ot the boxes.
This examination was made in the presence of a
number of jpersous. Ten of the boxes were there
upon brought to Charleston, hod Hie remainder,
were left with Mr. J odd. United States commis-,
sion ar. '-" 's;, ' / . ,
The carpenters-.stated. they had made' 23, but
only 24 could be found.
. in soma of the boxes. tba carpenters Haid, they
found the nail holes lu snob, a condition as led
them to believe tue heads of the nails had been
drawn through, and whoever did lt - was not par?
ticular m putting other nails In the same holes.
fTlie boxes were now submitted to"thejary for
Un the tem h day of the examination upwards
of forty witnesses were examined Ixcnu People's
preetuo*, who testified as -to the mainer tn which
they voted, and the character, .of the changes
which appear when votes could be idem med.
The prosecution then announced thar its case
was clisad, and the court adjoarned until Mon?
day, when the defence examined three witnesses,
whose testlmcny wc shall publish to-morrow.

thc admirers or Mr. Watklus's dramatic prodoc.
