Chicaoo, March 17. A determined
move on the part of all the atrong line
in the United States is being made to
drive scalpers out of business. A nearly
a can be learned the movement baa
been placed in the hands of the variou
associations with instructions to drive
the scalpers to the wall. There is an
apparent unanimity on the part of all
the lines, bat it i noticeable that in all
case the place ha been fought and
nrged by the strong line. One of the
leaden of the movement showed, ae
among it first fruit, a telegram from
North Carolina. It said that a law had
just been signed by the governor and
made effective, forbidding anyone to
barter in railroad tickets except that he
were an authorized representative of the
company whoee ticket he sold. The
same law has almost paased in Minne
sota, and within the next two years will
be pushed before every state legislature,
Tne movement toward anoiiHning nn
limited tickets, and which is in a fair
way to become effective through the
New York meeting, is a part of the gen
eral plan. A conservative estimate

of course, extends to all lines in the

there may be a general war of rates. A

he feared the tickets in question would
not be redeemed unless tne Atchison

the Mafia by Matranza, who
quitted by the jury, and released from
prison. Caruso said he only intended
one meeting; that he went in, and Mat
ranza held up a skull in his left
and swore him to abide by the dedeion
of the order. He aaid he was informed
after taking the obligation tbat the ob
ject was to kill flume who were against
the Mafia gang. The way it was done
was to select the victim and invite him
to dinner and afterwards do him up.
Caruno aaid afterwards that he did not
like to commit murder, but waa willing
to rob, so he went to the Italian chnreh
and swore before the altar that he
would have nothing more to do with the

frightened back, with the result of
Inning hi life. Caruso also aaid that
Rocci and Politz belonged to the order.
Many Italians who were nnder the

lon. of No. S2 Campbell avenue, will be
sareful in the future how he talks about
the Mafia. At 2:30 a. in. he stood wait
Ing for a State streetcar. Three Ital
ians were near him. Hogadon talked
f the New Orleans affair, and said
svery member of the Mafia should be
banged. The words had hardly been
ottered when the Italian drew knives
and attacked him. He was severely cut
about the body, and would have been
killed outright had not his cries brought
several men to his assistance. The Ital
ians ran away, and no description of
them is known. Hogadon was assisted
to the Harrison street stat ion, where his
wounds were dresed and found not to
be serious. The spot where the assault
is said to have taken place is near the
centre of the Italian colony. Chief of
Police Marsh takes no stock in the Mafia
part of the story. The victim, he says,
