end one of the 1'nends of tbs Wilmington
nd Western Railroad, who took an iuteraet iu its
tassptien and progress, iuduras me to address to
,OU some Views as , mnacted with prnsent statua,
and lutnre prospects.
Tho apparently unfortunate finsnriai condition
of the Company at this time, ana the different
methods proposed tor amuiliemimn. .tJVnwürt o°
»n'bVnvmns thought 1 lalm you are a Bond
KL-r to a moderate amount, and am therefore
more free to say that it is upou the conscientious
and iust minded holders of ihe securities of the
Road, that we must rely to determine and give
direcuon to tlio policy nasi calculated to remedy
exaitnZ unfavorable condition#.

be a financial succcss.witbout even the toocommon cs
xicriflce of the investments of the original stock- c i a
holders— to be, ia abort, an honestly built railroad, p
— honest basinets basin. ,
The W. & W. R. R. now stands belore us n
property of much value. It occupies a position
oa the South side of the Christiana River, that
lu the future progress of our city must p
of immense importance. Tho local mu
manufacturing, agricultural and other iuter
twte are developing to make geod the calcula

What then is the present condition of af
f»lr$? What are the dangers to be avoid
ed? add what are the remedtts to be ap
lu plain terms the 4240,000 realized from
stock subscribtions and the proceeds of $50f,
«00 of bonds sold being sufficient to complete
and equip tho road, a floating debt of near
$90,0100 was necessarily raised by a portion ot
the' Directors nnd others, to answer that pur
pooo. After getting into operation, the lack
ofoiifflciont earnings, and the llnauuiai panic
paMDtmd, occasioned a default in the payment
pfltitrl—of Interest due, Oct. 1st, 1873,
aW'Jnn. 1st, 1371, and gives the bondholders
cango for Just complaint.
Many ot the stockholders and perhaps also
the smaller bondholders have not yet clearly
understood the character of the proposition
proceeding from a conference of the bond
holders Wben a large majority of said con
ference of bondholders had determined to grant
a delay of I Si years, in conformity with the
almost unanimous commendation of their
committee, to enable the road to complete lie
Western connections and make ap Its busi
ness, a proposition tor re-organization of the
following purport, was sprung upon tbe con
ference, and hastily adopted, namely :
1. That the new organization have a stock
I ltal of $ 600 , 000 , and a bond capital of
1,000, to cover a line of rood extending
a the Delaware River to Oxford, or to
such other point as may hereafter be settled
,$, Ttiat the First Mortgage Bondholders
surrender their bouda aud past doe coupons,
and receive in lieu thereof, 73 per cent. In
the bonds of the new company, at par, and
a* per cent. In atoek of the new company, at
3. That the floating debt creditors re
ceive, in discharge of their debt and interest,
33 per cent, of the stock of the new company,
i- That the present stockholder receive
for their present holding of stock, 30 per cent,
in stock of the new company, at par.
8. That a Board of Directors be chosen, who
■hyii nr« the remaining assets of bonds and
stock, aud apply so much ot them as may be
necessary to complete and equip tbe extension
to Oxford, or to such other point at may be
To understand tbe exact drift of this propo
sition requires considerable analysis. Its most
harsh fsature may be found iu the terms offer
ed to the float lug debt creditors, the gentlemen
most of whom, through a spirit of iaudlbio
tarprise. first subscribed largely to the capital
stock, next gave their labor, credit-and Influ
ence to the work, aud lastly, when the pro
ceeds of the bouds were exhausted, and tbe
work unfinished, lent from their private
means, In some cases to injurious amounts, to
save the concern 'rein total failure by non
completion. Morally, these persons stood
equal or superior to the Bondholders, lu any
amicable and equitable adjustment.
There is Dow.say $219,000 of stockend 1300
000 et bonds sold ; had the pro
Ration token effect after two Instalments
luterest bad fallen due, the present bondhold
era would have held about $390.000 worth of
the new bonds and about$t29.000 worth of tbe
new stock, thus holding securities of like
nmonnt as those they now hold.
The present stockholders, no interest heim:
counted to them, would have boon put oft
with about $62.000 worth of the new stock, in
place of Uta $349,000 they u
floating debt creditors with,
of stock in payment for $»1,000 worth of mon

stock and ownership of tlie road would have

ment; tbat ls $i5p,000 worth of H in tiio hands
of the bondholders, and about $S4,800 worth

stock was to have been sold and realired for

Did the bondholders themselves, propose to
buy this Stock ? !

"Geutleaieu, you need not go into such heavy

Tbe stockholders acts.! Wisely in dec.in,ng to
socept such a proposition. In my opinio«, lbe
