Railway officials who have been taking an
active part in the movement to wipe out the
ticket scalping evil in western cities are
much pleased at the prospect of being ma
terially aided in their undertaking bv the Or
der of Railway Conductors. They are em
phatic in their praise of the South Dakota
branch of the order which has taken the ini
tiative bv bringing before the legislature of
that state an anti-scalping bill,and they confi
dently expect to see the movement spread to
other states. The conductors are interested
in having such laws enacted, because when
ever fraudulent tickets are palmed off on
them they are usually required to make good
the loss to the company that employs them
13ut they also have the interest of the public
in mind and are able to recount numerou sin
stances in which persons have been com
pelled to pay their fares on the train after
buying worthless tickets of unauthorized
agents. It is understood that similar bills
are to be introduced by the Order of Railway
Conductors in other states where no anti
scalping laws exist.
