A TICKET QUESTION.
A Suit Interestine to Travelers.
TFr-m the San Francisco Chronicle-1
On the 6th of September, 1872,
Benjamin It. Drew purchased a
ticket at Omaha, Nebraska, enti
tling him to passage over the rail
roads from Ogden to San Francisco.
On arriving at Brighton Station on
the Western Pacilic railroad, he was
refused further passage by the con
ductor of the train on -which he was
a passenger. Mr. Drew, claiming to
have been summarily ejected from
the cars, in violation of his contract
with the Central Pacific Kailroad
Company, brought suit for $10,000
damages. The case came up in the
Twelfth District Court yesterday.
THE RAILROAD COMPANY'S CLAIM.
In their answer to the complaint,
the Central Pacific alleged that the
tickets issued to the former, were at
a price less than the established rate
between the places named. That it
was good for one emigrant passage
(in emigrant cars) only on presenta
tion with the coupons attached, and
furthermore, that the ticket was
good only for nine days from the
date of issue; that the same should
be forfeited if not presented within
the time specified: that the plaintiff
left the train at a given point on the
route, and failed to comply with
the terms of the contract in not re
suming his journey at the proper
time; that on presentation of the
ticket, afterilhad become absolutely
void, the plaintiff was not ejected in
a summary manner, but that he
voluntarilj' left the train, takinghis
baggage with him.
THE PLAINTIFF'S VERSION.
Plaintiff stated that after he iiad
been ejected, ho was compelled to
walk back to Sacramento. Being
placed on the stand, he testified to
having bought his ticket, as stated
in his complaint. Soon after the
cars left Omaha the conductor came
along and took up his ticket and
gave hiin a check in place of it
When lie arrived at Ogden ho in
quired of a man who, he was told,
was a Central Pacific conductor,
and who had on a badge marked
"Conductor," whether he would be
allowed to lio over at Salt Lake for
a few days. Ho was told that he
could stop over, but that he had
better be back at Ogden to take the
cars inside of a week. Ho then
went to Salt Jako to see a sick
friend, and remained two days. He
then went on to Sacramonto with
out having any trouble about his
tickot. At Sacramento he got off
the cars to speak to a gentleman,
and misled the train, having there
by to stop over one night.
Tiic next day tlio 13th of the
month he got on board the
cars again, and when he reached
Brighton' the oonduotor a-sked him
for his ticket. He reached it out
to him, when the conductor told
him that tho time for which it had
been issued had expired, and that
ho would have to pay his faro from
Sacramento to this city. He re
fused to do this, and was thereupon
ejected from the train, together
with his baggage.
THE REGULATIONS OK THE ROAD.
The defendant's counsel argued
that a special contract existed be
tween the parties to the suit, where
by the plaintiff agreed in considera
tion of behig carried over the road
at a reduced rate and in a second
class car, that he would make the
journey in six days from the date of
Issuance 'of the-ticket, Even if the
conductor did tell tho plaintiff that
he could stop over a week, that
statement was not binding upon
the company in the face of the
original contract After leaving
Omaha the conductor gave plaintiff
a check which was marked in plain
language "good for six days only;"
as aj&o was tho original ticket
A. N. Towne, General Superin
tendent of the road, was called to
testify regarding tho rules and reg
ulations of tho road, but his testi
mony was ruled out.
THE CONDUCTOR'S STORY.
Andrew Rider, the conductor of
the train on which Drew was a pas
senger, testified: The plaintiff held
a seconu ciass excuauge uuiiei. a.
told him that was not good, and at
Brighton told him he must either
pay his fare or go off the cars. The
plaintiff chose to do the latter, and
n'6 violence whatever was used.
Other witnesses testified to tbe
same fact in regard to Drew's" leav
ing the Uain.
The defendant attempted to prove
that after his arrival in this city the
plaintiff requested C. C. Hayden to
nmrnrn hlhi a situation on the rail-
road, and made no complaint to him
about his ejectment, xne tesumony
.was ruled to be immaterial.
T. II. Goodman, the passenger
agent of the Central Pacific, testi
fied : That according to the rules of
the Central Pacific a second-class
ticket did not in 1S73 entitle the
holder to stop qvpr qn his journey.
The same rule obtains at tha present
time in reference to third-class
tickets, both on the Central Pacific
and on every other railroad In the
United States and Canada. The
company could not afford to issue
tickets at the reduced rates at which
plaintiff's ticket was bought, unless
on condition that they should be
used within a limited time. The
issuing of second-class tickets was
tried as an experiment, to see
whether sonio travel could not be
induced to come over the road
which would not be content to come
in a third-class car. The practice
was discontinued January 1, 1874,
because of the company having just
such trouble as this with passengers
who were not willing to abide by
the coutract they had made. Wit
ness thought tho discontinuance of
the practice has operated to the
detriment of California.
After hearing tho foregoing testi
mony and the arguments of counsel,
tho jury rendered a verdict in favor
of the plaintiff for $400.

The Department of Agriculture
at "Washington, while there are
some good fcaturesabout it, it is not,
as a wholly a remarkable success.
Especially i5thls the case with the
seed department, which has been
scatteringiew and excellent varie
ties, which Hi most cases prove to
be some old and worthless articles,
if not, indeed, a serious .damage to
those who try them. We think
Congress could not do better service
than by failing to make an appro
priation forthesupport of our "seed"
emporium. Sural American.
The objects ot all fair associations
are laudable, inasmuch as they re
sult in bringing to one place occa
sionally animals and articles of su
perior excellence as models. Jt is
in this way that they may be con
veniently seen and studied, every
one may have an opportunity of
becoming acquainted with the
appearance at least of whatever
is best and most profitable the
horse of the most just proportions,
either for work or speed; the cow
that tells best, either as breeder,
milker, or butter maker; tbe hog
that appears to be the most eco
nomical in producing the greatest
return for a given amount of care
and food ; the sheep best adapted
to each farmer's circumstances,
either for wool, the market, or both,
and so in general terms through the
entire range of manufactured pro
ducts. In addition to this, another
object is, to elevate and improve
the farmer as well as to stimulate
his endeavors to excel in his calling.
Of all the various methods of in
struction none are so popular with
the masses as a combination of oc
ular and oral methods. The mass
es of the people prefer those meth
ods of instruction at our annual fairs,
by witnessing the various products
on exhibition. A disposition is
awakened to excel in the production
of something which seems to come
within the sphere of our ability.
We are not surprised to learn that
the grangers are taking into consid
eration the utility of holding fairs In
which one or more granges are to
In tho Louisville (Miss.) Banner,
We find the following: At the regu
lar meeting of Central Grange of
the Patrons of Husbandry at this
place, the following premiums were
offerered to members of that grange:
For the best corn, and the largest
number of bushels, raised from one
acre of laud, $25. For the best and
largest number of gallons of molas
ses made from one acre of cane, $15.
For the largest and best hog, of any
age, raised in Winston county,
A committee -was appointed to
measure the the land of those who
expect to contest for the corn and
molasses premiums, to measure up
the same, and have samples on hand
on exhibition day. The exhibition
will be held on the 12th day of De
cember. In this connectiun we wish to
suggest that the cash system, al
though better than the giving of di
plomas, will not have a tendency to
effect as much good for the grange,
as a premium to be used in purchas
ing the best agricultural papers and
standard agricultural books treating
of the various departments of farm
labor. Wo suggest that the grange
offer, in addition to the usual pre
miums one for tbe best and n'ost
economically conducted grain or
stock farm ; others for the best pay;
ing system of cultivation of tho dif
ferent kinds of crops ; and one for
tho fastest walking workingliorse
or mule. Tho understanding to be
that premiums should be made up
of contributions, and, when award
ed, to bemused by the grange as
above indicated. The names of the
brothers to which the premiums are
awarded, and the amount of the
same to be entered on the permanent
records of the grange.
This plan could be extended to a
competition by the grange at the
county or district fairs, which would
add vary materially toward, increas
ing an interest in them. Colman'8

There was more doing in the pro
vision trade to-day than on the day
before. Sugars were weak, and cof
fees declined from one-half to one
cent per pound.
continue active and prices are well
A decline of 50 cents per hundred
on sheet tin, and one cent per pound
on sheet iron occurred to-day, which
had quite an effect in stimulating
trade in those articles, as buyers
seemed to be under the impression
that the decline was only tempory.
Oranges are quoted at an advance
of $1.00 per box, and raisins have
also "raised" 25 ctats.
Trade generally, though not so
heavy as on the same day last week,
was very satisfactory and the whole
sale merchants are cheerfully look
ing for an unusually good day to
morow. OMAHA MARKETS.
