As President of ' tho ! Western North

The commissioners after consideration
returned it to nie, with a memorandum
iu Gov. Jarvis' handwritiug of the amend
ment which they required before grant
ing the extcusion. It is as follows :

force on said line to complete it to Pigeon
River by the time required by the cou
tract as extended . by this application.
But it is distinctly understood that this
extensiou if granted shall not affect any
other provision of the contract."
It was further demanded by the com
missioners that the petition should be

commence work in two months (by the
29th of May, 1830,) nnd that among oth
er things they would pay the semi-an

of the road.
Mr. Best found himself unable to raise
this money, and fiually ou the 31st day
of July, 1880,onr wohA after the pass-
niro of tbe act. he formally assigned all
o ' . -
bis rights under the contract to W. P.
Clyde, A. S. Buford and T. M. Logan,
for the consideration of 7,500 shares of
stock of the face value of $750,000.
Tho assignees were induced to como to
the rescue of Mr. Best at this late day by
solicitations and assurances from promi
nent gentlemen iu North Carolina who
felt great appreheusious at the threaten
ed failure of this scheme.
These gentlemen, Messrs. Clyde, Logan
aud Buford, began work on the road and
made aomo progress before the winter
of 18S0-'81 sat in, but they eucouutered
two obstacles which in the language of
the act very greatly "hindered and de
layed" their operations and for which
"they were in no wise respousidle."
First : The State in the above cited,
stipulated as one of tbe couditions of the
sale, "That during the construction of
said railroad, and nutil tbe same shall be

Senator Vance bases the withdrawal of
his assent to the graut of extension, is
uu worthy of the Senator, and is as absurd
as it is unfounded ; for! how could any

Now, aa Dr. Worth is shown to Ijsyc had

Dr. Worth simply kept a promise which

Vance thinks that if the doctor did so with

fully shows to your honorale board what is
well known through the public documents

original grantees lost four months of the
most valuable and suitable time given them
by the Legislature, to wit : from the 29th
March to the. 31st day of July, 18S0, and
which was the baU of estimate when the
Legislature prescribed the 1st of July, 1881,
as the time wheu the road should be com
pleted to Paint Rock and Pigeon Uiver,
and it was at this gloomy period in the his
tory of this coutract on which North Caro
Una has based so many bright hopes that
the assignees were urged to assume the bur
den of the contract and complete the road ;
and that they did at that late day, after
four months had leen lost without anv fault
of theirs, assumed the responsibilities of the
contract under the assurance that a liberal
policy would ba pursued towards them by
