A PARER 1ECISION.
The New York legislature passed a
law making it a crime for any one
except an agent of a railroadeompany
to sell a railroad ticket, even an
unused ticket. or portion of a ticket.
That legislature was Republican.
The Republican governor of New
York signed the bill and it became a
But some traveling men in New
York took that law into the courts.
It got into the court of appeals, of
which Judge Parker was a member,
and he declared the law unconstitu
tional. That was right.
The person who buys a railroad
ticket'becomes the owner of it. The
man who buys a horse becomes the
owner of it and has the right to sell
it. Why should the roads try to
prevent purchasers of railroad , ickets
from selling them?
There would be no ticket scalpers
if the roads would charge only
reasonable rates. We don't see
persons scalping postage stamps.
There is no Upited states law against
a man's selling a postage stamp to
The railroads charge from two to
five times as much as their service is
worth, and then try to make the laws.
Judge Parker's decision shows that
he is not in favor of laws made by
railroads for injuring citizens.

STATE EXAMINER'S OEEICE.
Comparative cost and work under
Rickards and Toole.
The 1895 Legislature created this
important office for examination of
all state and county offices handling
public money, and supervision of
banks incorporated under the state
law, The annual salary of.t he State
"Examiner was fixed at $4,000 and of
his assistant at p83,000, which amounts
were to ineThde all travelling and
offioe expenses. The appointees, D. D.
Bogart and E. W. Stetson, went into
office March, 1895; and continued
until Eareh, 1897. The annual cost
for salaries arid expenses under Gov.
Rickards was $7,000.
The 1897 Legislature tixed salaries
at $2,000 and $1,500, but made
aditional appropriations to cover
traveling and office expenses. The
present incumbents appointed by
Gov. Toole are V. Hnudnall and
Assistant F. H. Ray, who have tilled
the office since March, 1901. The
average annual cost :f the office
under Gov. Toole has been $5,200° or
$1,800 per year less than under Gov.
WORK INCREASED; EXPENSES REDUCED
Prior to 1895 there was no uniform
system in the county offices, and Mr.
Bogart is entitled to credit for in
augurating a uniform system of
accounting. in 23 counties. His report
foe year ending Nov. 30, 1895, shows
that the Examiner had to examine

As showing a very large increse,
contrast with the above, the Ninth
Annual Report of State Examiner,
for year ending Nov. 30, 1903, in which
Examiner Hudnall says: "During the
past year this office has made person
al examinations and reported on 26
counties, 28 banks, 7 state offices, 1
state board, 1 building 'and loan
The increase of 3 counties, 19 banks
and 1 state office does not fully
measure the larger amount of work,
because the volume of business done
in county and state offices has
markedly increased since 1895-6, con
sequently the examiner's labors in
each office have correspondingly
The growth in banking department
is over 300 per cent in number, and
the increase in volume of business is
indicated by the fact that the total
resources of the nine state banks,
$3,421,557.23, as reported Oct. 7, 1895,
is now exceeded almost a million
dollars by a single bank, the State
Savings of Butte.
BACK TAXES AND LICENSES.
The Examiner's 1903 report shows
that at his request, test suits were
begun in 1901 against the R. M. B.
Telephone Co., for license they refused
to pay, which after being carried to
the supreme court were decided in
favor of the state and resulted ii
collection of $3,348 back licenses.
Delinquent Taxes: In 1901 the
Examiner's office began a systematic
collection of taxes then delinquent,
some of which had been owing for
ten years, and inaugurated an im.
proved method of accounting such
taxes. The total collection of these
old delinquent taxes (those delinquent
prior to 1901, only) was up to Nov. 30,
1903, $94,036.58. This sum will be
augmented more than $25,000 by col
lections made this year. The above
does not include a dollar of taxes
which become delinquent during the
incumbency of the presentappointees
but is for amounts owed when they
went into office.
Interest coupons recovered. This
office also saved the State more than
the annual salary of both its incum
bents in the matter of interest
coupons on bonds issued by the Arid
Land Grant Commission. In checking
payments made to contractors the
office held that $4,530 in interest cou
pons had been wrongly issued and
those were recovered and cancelled.
