I What I elel tn Railroad Rates,
and tbe Present SyMem of 3IUeage
U Par From Either
The present system of Issuing and
using mileage books is not satisfac satisfactory
tory satisfactory to the patrons of the railroads,
and, as many travelers will be surpris surprised
ed surprised to learn. It is a great tax on the
time and patience of conductors and
ticket agents. The following letter
from a veteran railroad man contains
Information that will be useful to all
and new to many:
"I understand that the various or organizations
ganizations organizations of commercial travelers
are bringing influence to bear on the
legislature to have the Tailroads
change the present method of handling
mileage book transfers.
"At present the railroads offer mile mileage
age mileage books at a lower rate than regular
larifT fares for trip tickets and pre prescribe
scribe prescribe the manner in which these
books shall be used, and it, would seem
unfair to compel the railroads by law
to use a system of ticketing not desir desirable
able desirable to them, especially so since the
use of mileage books is not a compul compulsory
sory compulsory proposition.
"The mileage book is not now, never
has been and never will be satisfactory,
when used as a ticket upon trains. It
is most convenient for passengers, but
the following features render it objec objectionable
tionable objectionable to the railroads:
"First, as a ticket it has a baggage
checking value and as the book is In Interchangeable
terchangeable Interchangeable can be presented and
baggage checked over one railroad
while passenger can ride over some
other line. Next, conductors on trains
do not have the time to pull mileage
and properly work their trains, neither
is it feasible for the conductor to ex express
press express or register his mileage for each
train to the railroad association, hence
whatever mileage of foreign issue he
collects and is lost in open mails In
transit to the auditor Is that much rev
enue lost to collecting line.
"As mileage is being handled now
each collection can be checked by
means of the agent's ticket Issued in
exchange for mileage and at stated
periods or for each month the agent
can express mileage detached and re
port of tickets issued therefor to the
railroad's accountant, where a syste
matic check could be made and with
practically no chance for loss of mile
age. Again an agent can detach mile
age and Issue a ticket covering an In
terstate journey while a conductor can
only pull to destination of his run and
as best to destination of his line only.
"From the ticket agent's standpoint,
the present mode of handling mileage
is the worst that the mind of man
could contrive. No such proposition
has ever been thrust on any army of
working men, and the patience and
loyalty with which these servants have
borne this iniquitous burden, if proper
ly conceived by "public opinion" would
add one more to the list of the wonders
of the world.
"There Is cause for dissatisfaction
about this mileage, tho the average
commercial traveler misses the Idea.
The day is past when huge corpora
tions can crush the weaker vessel by
sheer might. The day Is also near at
hand when a common carrier cannot
furnish big business better rates than
individuals, and the concensus of
opinion today is that the man behind
the scene who labors to keep the trav
eler upon his journey and the railroads
supplied with tonnage should have the
same rate as the largest of them all.

There are, however, quite a number of

by the time they had soaked the
