ANNUAL REPORT OF
PRESIDENT AND DI
HOLLY SPRINGS. BROWNSVILLE
AND OHIO RAILROAD
MADE DECEMBER 0, 1812.
To the Stockholder of the II. S. II. and O.
Your president and director tako pleas
uro In reporting to you the protest, nnd
what they conceive to betho itilercit and
futuro proipecti of tbo Important entor
ptiie committod to their charge
Sinco your lait annual mnetlng the
work of clearing, grubbing, foiling or tim
ber and graduation on the flrtt twenty-
two ana a Halt tunc or roaa iroin urowns-Tillt-,
north, let to Menn. Jame Dove
raux & Co., on the 29th day of October,
1870, hai been flnlihed in a moit satisfac
tory mannor; and two more iectlon of
tho work let. On one of these, lot to Mr.
Robert Bailey, the work it progressing
Tory tatltfaclorily. Tho other ha been
abandoned by the contractor, Mr. C. It.
Johmon, and will requiro to be relet.
At your last annual meeting it wa con
fidently hoped that before another regu
lar ttockholder meeting ihould be held
tbo track would be laid and train running
on the flrtt twenty or twent-flve mile of
road. In thi hopo nono tbared more ful
ly than did your directory. But circum
ttancei unfoneen at that timo, havo pre
vented it realization. Soon after that
meeting, Iron of every detcription began
to advance in price and contin
ued to advanco until price becamo almoat
fabulout, and if a mortgage tufflclent to
buy tho iron and railroad stock at
those enorraout price could have been
negotiated tho net earnings of to ibort a
piece of road would not have paid tbo in
toreit on so large a debt and the result
would have been disastrous to tbc stock
holder a well at damaging to tbo pur
chase of the mortgage bonds. Under this
ttatoof fact, your directory havo thought
belt to advanco tbe work gradually, keep
the company free from debt or otber em
barrassment, and await future develop
ment in tho iron market.
If iron ihould decline soon, us we be
lieve, it must do, the companies that buy
after tbe decline will have greatly tbe ad
vantage of those who buy at present high
rates, a they will have a much lighter
debt to carry, leu Interest to pay and con
sequently more left a dividends to tbe
stockholders. If, on the other hand, the
tbe present high prices should con
tinue, there it (till nothing lott but a little
delay. And it it now believed by your
directory, that even tbit delay may bo
turned to good account by our adopting a
Erogrammu and securing connectloni not
eretofore contemplated. In our paper
two yuan ago we took occation to tay
"tbat in our judgement, tbe enterprise
more important to the future prosperity
and importance of this road tban all oth
ers it tbe opening of Lake Borgne canal.
This project will virtually ex
tend tbe Mississippi river to
Ship Island and open up to tbe largest
sized vessels one ot tbe best, safest and
cheapest harbor on the gulf. This har
bor is shunted nearly midway between
New Orleun and Mobile, and must havo
direct communication by rail with the
Nortb, Northeast and Northwest. All of
tbl can be accomplished by building a
line of road from Ship Island through a
country now destitute of railroad facili
ties to Holly Springs.''
When the above wa written we were
looking forward to a connection north
with the St. Louis and Iron Mountain
railroaJ, an extension touth through Som
crville to Holly Springs, Miss., and tbe
building of a road from that point south
between tbe Central and Mubile
roads to Ship Island harbor.
Tbl certainly would have made a mag
nificent line of road. But Fayette county
failed to give that aid necessary to the
Holly Springs extensioo, the enterprise as
contemplated South of Brownsville was
brought to a standstill and its future
realization in our Judgment lias been fore
(tailed by the developement of tbeirj en
terprise of a more practical character,
which gives us an opportunity to secure
connections with St. Louis and ahlp I.land
much more direct and at a much lets cost
than tbe plan above contemplated.
A first-claw three feet gauge railroad is
now being constructed from St. Louis to
Cairo on the Illinois tide of tbe Missis
sippi river, and will be finished and in
operation by sometime next spring. A
road of tbe lame cauge and character was
commenced le.it March atMlddloton, Tan
nestee, a point on tbe Memphis and
Charleston road thirteen miles south of
Bolivar, and hat been finished and it now
in operation to Ripley, Missistippi, a
distance of about twenty-five miles, and
hat a fair prospect of being continued
through to Ship liland harbor at an early
This will leave a gap of only one hun
dred and fifty miles from Cairo to Mld
dleton to be filled, in order to complete a
line of road of uniform gauge from St.
Louis to one of tbe best harbors of the
gulf, and the question now present itself
for our consideration whether it Is better
for ut to adopt tbe three feet gauge ond
make outa link on this great central ar
tery of narrow gauge roads, connecting as
it will tbe creat future cltv of the MI.. I...
ippl valley with one of the best and choap
est harbors on our gulf coast.
At to the advantages of the Cairo and
Middloton over tbe Columbu and Hollv
Spring connections for tbe main line of
our road, other tblngt being equal, there
can oe no question ; consequently tbo tub
jo;! for consideration is that of width and
and weight of road. Until recently what
i known at tho narrow-gauge railroad
eemt to have not been conceived of. The
question of gauge thirty years uco -vus bo
tween seven and four feet rlghtand-a.balf
incne, no narrower gauga being proposed
or mougutor uy raiiroaa men. JUuch dit
cuttlon and experiments on a vast tcale
ret ul ted in tbe almost universal adoption
of tbe narrowest sauce then uronoied.
Upon these road it has been customary to
lay iron rail weighing from fifty to sixty,
five pound to the yard, and to use loco,
motive weighing from 25 to 35 torn. With
plenty of nil I lag stock the capacity of tuch
roads for businnai I Immense. But the
cost of construction and repair I also lm
men. The road with its rolling stock
though of Immense weltht li wall propor
tloi4. Tb ystftn within lu!f Is vsry I
nearly perfect, and It did seem cruel for
any one to make nn innovation. But tbe
innovation ha beon rnado and a much
lighter and bettor system of roads has
been proposed, and a ufflclent number of
tuch road have been built to demonstrate
their practicability, their advantage and
Those roads havo beon called narrow
gauge because of a reduction of about two
feet in width of track below tbo old stand
ard guago. But tho name does not prop
erly represent the tyitem of road. If
the reduction in tho width of track wa
tbe only departure from the old system
the advantage would bo few and small.
But tho narrow-guage system Is intended
to be perfect in til of its parts.
A compared with the old broad gaugo
tyitem the width of track it cut down
about tsvo-flfih and tho weight of cross-
tic?, bridging, troitllng, iron, nam ana
rolling itock, from two-fifths to one-half
In other words, it it a lighter toad with
lighter rolling stock, and consequently a
cheaper road. There it a reduction of at
least two-fifths of tho materials out of
which the road is constructed, and conse
quently a reduction of two-filths of the
cost of construction. And if tho old tyi
tem of toads with their width and weight
approach proportional perfection, tho now
tyitem mutt be reduced in width a well
as in wolgbt, in order to possess tho tamo
degreo ot perfection.
But tho great laving of monoy resulting
from tho introduction of tho narrow-gaugo
does not end with tbo building of tho road.
It is felt in equally at great a degree in re
pairing and operating expontes. If, in
constructing tbo narrow in place of the
broad-gauge road, two-fifths ot tbo cost of
cross-ties, bridging, trcstling, iron nnd
rolling itock can be taved the samo pro
portion can bo saved in replacing theto ma
terial, whenever theso repairt become
necessary. Bolides it is beliovod tbat on
Iron rail weighing thirty-five pounds to
tho yard will last longer on a narrow
guage road with engines weighing from
lourtcen to eighteen tont than a rail
weighing tixty-fivo poundi to tho yard
will last on a broad gusgo road with cn
ginet weighing from twenty-flvo to thirty
tlvo torn. Tbe rapid wear of railroad
iron is tho result of laminating or batter
ing, not of friction. Engine! weighing
irom lourtocn to eigtueon ions laiumaiu
iron very little, whilothoso weighing from
thirty to thirty-five tout laminate it very
rapidly, to in regard to operating expenses.
Broad-gauge roadt with heavy rolling
stock must run heavy trains whether the
business demand it or not. Consequently
they must havo carried over them an im
mense amount of dead or non-paying
woight and tbat at considerable cost for
fuel whether tbero bo much or little busi
ness. It it tho heavy engines that math
up and wear out the iron, yet they aro
made for tbo road and tbo
road it mado for them and
they must bo run though ten
thousand pound enginci and cars be run

before tbe world, always stow to bollovo
and accept tbo truth of aclence, tho great
advantagci of a cheap, light svttom of rail

moot earnestly recommend that tho stock

Tho proprioty of uch a system of road
hia nvcntlr hppn pTtpnulve! v discussed
by tho best engineer both in Europo and
in America, and as tbo result of such dis
cussion tho Euis'an Government, hereto
fore almost entirely without railroad fa
cilities has adopted it and it now con
tacting quite & number of long lines of
narrow-gaugo roads. England with
thirty yean of experience In operating tbo
best vnd tomo ot tno oroaacst roads in tne
world hat adopted tbo narrow-gaugo sys
tem for her vust India possession!, number
of such roads havo been and are now be
ing constructed in Europe, in
Canada and in tbe United States;
and Gen. Rosecrans, ono of tbe
best engineers of tbo ago ii now in Mex
ico, urging that government to adopt tbe
tame tyitem as the ono most likely to
bring about tbe rapid development ot tbe
resources of tbat country.
Theso roads havo bean pronounced by
competent engineers as being equally at
safe at tbc broad-gauge roadt, and tbe de
cision of such engineers has been sustained
by the practical workings of tho roadt.
They can bo operated with a tpeed
sufficient for all practical purposes, and
with a rail weighing thirty-five pounds to
the yard and plenty of rolling stock, have
a capacity for doing more business tban
is now being dono by any broad-gauge
toutb of the Ohio river. And il tbe busi
ness of such a road ihould even exceed itt
capacity, tho earnings from so heavy a
business would very toon double track the
road, and increase ill capacity to
more tban double that or a tingle
track broad-gauge road, wbile the
relative cost of thu double track narrow
gauge at compared with that of tbe linglo
track broad-gauge would be only as about
tlx to five. By udoptinc tbe narrow-
gaugo fur our road, and thereby securing
the co-oporatlon ot tbe St Louis and Cairo
and the liddietown, mpioy and bnip

We feel very confident that tho whole line
of road from St. Louis to Ship Island har
bor can bo built very toon, and with such
a base-lino or main artery, wo would havo
developed a system of narrow-guage roads
mat would control a largo snare
of the carrying business of Miss-
slssippi valley. Narrow-guge branch
lines much lighter than tbe system pro
posed for through lines can be, and aro be
