The Herald is in entire accoixl with tbo (oHowing article troni 'the To  ronto Saturday Night. It hits tlu mil aquare on the hcalnmol�5s. If a railway conductor betra.vs Ms trust at>d defrauds his employers, he nhould be not only discharged, but .criminally prosccvst�l, and i�ntil nu-n are jallod for this crin�, people v:i]] not include it in the list of crime.s Anotlicr necessity is that tha nvti who conspire with the conductors to defraud a railway be criminally prosecuted. Men make a jest of thBs dishonesty and soiiw who are siriuaro enough in other matters feci ashamed of themaclvcs whc stop-pefl. Yet it could be stopped if gu.l. ty conductors worv st'nt, to the Coit- ral Prison, anil guilty passenjwrs were put in the conunon jaSl for thirty days. The pa-ssenger is the tenii>ti)r. He gets on good terms with the conductor, talks nljout olh-. er men on the road, slip* him. a dollar or two-"no tickets between friimds." a new conductor may have n firm resolve that he will lot. touch crooked money, but. smarter men than himself are determined thnt they �lill "fetch" him ewoner or Ittterr-men with life-long c.\T)nri -cnco in corno>ting conductors, and, as a rule, they succeed. Somotinics Lhe.v succeed at last by shere:efTront-ery, shoving a bogus ticket w-ith a folded dollar Mil beneath it, into the conductor's hand in a crowded car. The man cannot lefuso the t p without a scene-a sceno injurious to himself and to the ''popular fellow" ho is dealing with. He passes on, nobody suspects wlvat has happened, but the guilty passenger knows thnt he has added another to his string of follow conspirators in the game of C. and K. as far as High Uiver, at any rate. On th�j east we run touch towns on tfic main lino of th-C.P.n. v-ith greater and ron-vonience than Calgary.
