During the year 1867 the gross re r eceipts

• . --owing to the , varying circumstances of
the road, as 'regards length, no useful
comparison can be made with these fig
- Urea the present year. In view of the
fact that your road was only opened
for through traffic in time to begin the
fiscal yearjnst closed; and' that its bassi

' • 'at handsome surplus for the interest on

•'. • improvement of the road,and eventually
for dividends. ------ •
...-, .- The: cost of managing and operating
• ! the road was. flity..two per cent, of . the
gross receipts. The earnings per mile of
e• road were 17,224 47; . expensesi•per
i , • mile, $3,812 96; net earnings per mile,
i $3,411 51. The number of barrels of
- -crude petroleum carried was 564,667; of

carried south, 208,992; northward, 20,387
1 tons. Further interesting details In re
; said to the operations and traffic *of :the
; road, are given in the accoMpanying-re
:The , road-bed and track are in excellent
order, nearly all of the old iron having
been replaced by new of the best make.
'.;•• 'The track is fully ballasted'and surfaced
; - up to the grade, and thp- engineer pro.;
~.• • - flounces your road to be equal to the best
- ' roads in the country, "both for smooth

t - to n, and ganerally or the
present business of the Company. The
i rapid increase of coal, lumber, stone and

addition to the number of gondola cars.

For which you have 131 Miles oflirst
class single track - railway,-with the ne
cessary side tracks, etc., and equipments
'for a business' of $1,500,000 per , annum.
This is equal to a cost of 884000 per mile,
and' n view of the fact ,that the forty
four miles of road betwaen Pittsburgh
:and Kittanning have been anti rely'relaid
with new iron and ties, and ,have
ballasted and otherwise improved, mak
ing the road almost equivalent to re
building, this cost will be found t com
pare not unfavorably with that of s miler
-enterprises which have been prosecuted
during the same '. period period of highprices
' and:inflated currency. ,
Your Board of Managers estimat the
gross receipts of the road for the co Mg
year at $1,500,000. The experience o the
t \ . jiat
past Veer goes to show that the exp en ses
will not be over fifty per cent of the roes
receipts, which will leave us, over and
above expenses, $750,000. ---- Ded uc ting
..from this sum the interest on $4, 000,000
of bonded debt, 1292,000, ,we will have
the tolin of 1448,000, for the interest and.
redaction of the iloating . debt.
• At the last annual . meeting the stock
holders directed the early prosecution of
the work of extending the line of the
road from the Allegheny river at the
month of the ,Maherting to the Susque
hanna. The surveys" had already far
progressed, and as soon assposslble a 10-,
"cation was made, and the: work begun

A railroad bridge at Venango City or
Franklin, or at each of theme points,
would be of great value to your com
pany, but of equal or, greater importance
to Ahe companies with which we desire
to connect. In addition to the faeilities
it would afford in the transmission of oil,
coal and lumber between the several
roads, a - considerable through businessof traffic and trade between the head of
the Ohio and the lakes would spring up.
Espeially would the picturesque beauty
of the Allegheny river and the strange
sights of the oil regions make the route
a favorable one for tourists to and from
the Falls of Niagara.
-The Bridge across the Allegheny at
Brady's Pend has been completed, and
greatly facilitates the shipment Of rail
road iron from the extensive works of
the Brady's Bend Iron Company.

The report of J. J. Lawrence, General
Superintendent, was next read. The re
port gave a detailed statement of the

whom were laud, and 2 9-10 through.
The average number of miles traveled
Was 212-10, and`the amount received per
mile 3 4.10 cents. Total passenger mile
age 7,602,148. During the same period
570,186 ' tens of freight were moved,
eighty-nine per cent. of which was local
and eleven per cent. through freight.
The amount of revenue per ton. per mile
3 2.10 cents, and the cost of transporta
tion 17.10 cents. The report states that
no serious accident to •_passenger or
freight trains has occurred, except one
caused by the' breaking . of an axle near
Scnibgrass, resulting in the' serious in
jury to one passenger, and the slight in
jury of four others.
The reports of F. W. Martin, Chief En
gineer, of construction, and EL Black
stone, Chief Engineer, were also read,
upon the conclusion of which a resolu
tiob was offered and adopted, accepting

A motion was then made that the
