WHAT IS WATBHI3U STOCK t
In another column wlll be found a|
lottcr from n corrospondent, In whlch j
hc clalms that tho dlvidend obllga-j
tions issued hy the Rlchmond. Freil
tiTlcksburg and Potoinac Railroad wero
not "watcrcd stock." He says that tho
original Issuo of such scrlp representud
money earned, which bi-longed to th>>
stockholders, but was not dlstnbutefl,
belng used lnstead for improvoments
und bettcrmonts. Grantlng that to be
true, and v.'e do not dlspute it, were
not thc scrlp.dlvldends of thc Atlancic
Coast Llne declared upon preclsely thc
same prlnclplc? Tho oniy differonce w-xs
that tho Coast Llne added tho now
stock to thc general capital stock of
thc company, whlle thc Fredorlcksburg
road called its new stock "dlvldet'd
obligations" without ? votlng power.
Our corrospondent further says that
"as most people understand it. watcrid
Btock meaus stock issued not represent
Ing any actual money put In thc com?
pany." On the contrary, wo thlnk that
most peoplo understand that stock is
watcrcd when tho number of shares is
tirbitrnrily increased. From a cold
hlooded polnt of View thls may or may
not bc justltiod by tho carnlngs of thc
company. but ln either event tho stock
ls watered, accordlng to popular undcr
mtunding.
The conservativo dlrectors of thc
Coast Llne felt that thc carnlngs of
that road warranted them ln Issulng
scrip dlvldends to the stockholders
hui it was common talk nt tho tlrm
that thc- company had watcrcd iu
stock.
Our correspondont .says that thi
F.rederlcksburg road issuod scrip dlvl?
dends in 1S31 to relmburse tha stock?
holders for dlvldends ourned, but no'
tllstributed. But what of tho dlvtdem
obligations issutd ln 190C? In tha
year thc Sinklng Fund Commissioner
asked for a further scrip ? divldend
half of which was issued, ond noi
they say that the condition of th
company justifies a further distributloi
of -5 per cent. Doos that oflicial state
ment refer to earnlngs prlor to 1SSJ
Which wero used in Improvlng th
property" No. The commissionors mea
lhat tho present carnlngs nro sufli
clcntly large to pay '?' per cent. an
mially upon doublo the original cup
tallzation. Ip^ .-plain^ terms. tho con
mlssicncrs .^ajythnf'tho timo has con
io cut another rficlon, as the Wa
Street term goes; or, as the peop
say, to add a little moro water t
the Btock. Gentlemen mny draw fit
illstlnctlons, but thal Is tlie plaln fa
of the case, and thero ls no escapo. Tl
commissloners have cominitted ther
selves to the proposition that tho car'
ing capacity of a railroad whlch
honestly oporated, and whose charg
nro noithc-r excesslvc nor dlscrlniin
tory, furnl^lies the true basis of caj
tallzation.
The Tlmes-Dlspatch doos not dlspi:
that proposition. It agrees with t
commissloners that the condition of t
l''redericksburg road justifies anott
scrlp divldend of 25 per cent We ha
uot condemned the offlcers of the co
pany for "watering the stock," t
meant to do so. But wo hold that
does not lie wlth the State to prohl
other roads. similarly situatcd, fr
Uolug what Its own road has done w
Its full consent and approval.

sented a second resolutlon, which

follows:
"llcsolved, Tbnt tho dclegates who
on this roll call have voted 'no' on
the resolutlon just adopted, do not
deservo to have. and havo torfelted,

This last move on the part of the

Thero was u long discusslon on thla

"have all sald here, in tho presence
