Some time ago we mentioned the
suit of the U. P. railroad company
against Mr. L. Hansen of the First
National Bank, to recover an ad
ditional S3 on the tickets he pur
chased when he took his vacation
trip to the Pacific Coast, some months
ago. The case came np for final trial
before County Judge Smith last week
Wednesday and Saturday the judge
rendered dec Ison In favor of Mr. Han
sen. Judge Wall, for the company,
gave notice of appeal- The history
of the case in a nutshell Is that Mr.
Hansen purchased two tickets for
himself and wife to the Pacific Coast
paying the agent here what was asked
for the same, made the trip, came
home and later the company asked
an additional $4 on each ticket, on
the plea of misrouting, we beleive.
It is claimed the inter-state com
mission law was violated, in that the
purchase price was not sufficient and
Mr. Hansen was asked to make up
tbs deficiency, but as he paid the
agent the amount asked as purchase
price for said tickets, be did not feel
in dnty bound to pay more. It is a
funny law that will make a man pay
twice on a ticket. Mr. Hansen paid
the price asked and just why he and
not the company should be reeponsible
for the so-called mistake in the pur
chase price is queer to say the least.
According to the contention of the
company, anyone purchasing a rail
road ticket has no assurance when
ha does so and pays his money, that
he will not be called upon to dig
up still more at a later date.
Mr. Emil ▲. Lang, who (or the past
eighteen months has been out
bare In ths wild and woolly west from
his home In New York City getting
the benefit at our pure osone climate
making his headquarters with his

south nf Ashton, and Incidentally
showing Will bow they (arm la the
big metropolis, left (or his home
Tuaeday mornipg highly benefited In
health and experience fitp his con
tact with true western spirit. Emil
is a jolly good (allow and the many
Mends he has made during his sojourn
here will regret that he did not give
up the effete east and make his future
home among us. However, we will
wish him the best o( health, wealth
and prosperity wherever he may be.
