It hits thetmys lib-trust and defrauds his employers, ho should be not. only discharged, but .criminally prosecuted, and until men are jailed for ibis crinw, people v. Ill not include it in the list of crime* Another necessity is that tho men who conspire with the conductors to defraud a railway be criminally prosecuted. Men make a Jest of tMs dishonesty and some who are rtpian enough in other matters feel ashamed of themselves when they buy u ticket instead of tipping the vii -ductor. TIw young man who knocks about on trains a good deal is made to feel tkat he is a softy because he honestly pays his fare, although many of those who l>oast that ilu-y ride free, or nearly so. are liars oftenor than they an; thlmvs. They pay, but would huve you liolievv HfejPte that thev do so for_st�e( Jnl ' reasons. It is strange that a man �hould make boast that ho K a participant in a potty fraud. M>ii Jo�t. too, about the treason of eon -doctors to their employers They enjoy.telling the old story of the conductor who nsod to carry rattle men for a dollar tip. and when the company gave the drovers a mi t \te of onn dollar was wry nnnr.v. through a i-�r whore several of the men were, he iloclared: "Well, if the company can carry you for a dol'er I can carry yon for fifty conlf " They tell the other old story of the have saved from his salary. ''Well' ho replied, "I have got these th:n;s Why . replutv me with u man wno would start where I did nnd got these things the v ay I got them'1" Men make a jest of this form of dishonesty, and say it cannot l>e stopped. Yet It could be stopped if gu.l. ty conductors woiv sent, to the Cot>- ral Prison, and guilty passengers were pat in the common Jail for thirty days. The passenger Is the tempter. He gets on good terms with the conductor, tulks alnnit other men on the road, slips him a dollar or two-"no tickets between friends." A new conductor may hove ti firm resolve that ho will to' touch crooked money, but smarter men than himself are determined ihut they w�ill "fetch" him sooner or lateiv-men with life-long e.vpnri -enco in corrupting conductors, and, as a rule, they succeed. Somotimes they succeed at last by shore effrontery, shoving a bogus ticket with a folded dollar Mil beneath it. Into tho conductor's hand in a crowded car. The man cannot refuse the t p without mak.ng a scene-a sceno injurious to himself and to tho "popular fellow" ho is dealing with.' lie passes on, nobody suspects what has happened, but tho guilty passenger knows that he has added another to his string of fellow conspirators in the game of defraud.ng the railway company. W hen n man once starts taking tips instead of tickets, he is a goner, for tho tilck seems so easy. Tho law should get. after the crooked passengers. This Is not a matter for railway companies alone. It affects society at large. Dishonesty is never a private concern.
