Attention of the officials of the Virginia
Railway & Power Company has been
called to the practice of some few people
at First and Broad Streets illegally using
transfers. In a letter written by an ob?
server to the company, the writer says:
"I beg to advise you of the practice_ of
passengers illegally using transfers at First
ind Broad Streets. On numerons occa
sions I have noticed passengers coming
off the cars with two transfers and hand
nne to some friend who has been waiting
an the corner for possibly one-half hour.
Then again, I have seen some "good citi
zen?' who has two transfers, one given by
mistake, who will make it his business to
go from one person to another, although
they may be unacquainted," asking them
if they are going in the direction in which J
the transfer is punched. If they say yes, _j
they give them the transfer. This, I havo
seen done by white passengers apparently
in good standing, as well as among the
poorer class of negroes."
It is'such abuses as this that the com?
pany is watching with a view of breaking
up the practice as soon as possible.
