SUITS OVER SMALL SUAS
Settlement of Matters of Principle AP
A Georgia railroad and one of its
patrons have got as far as the su.
preme court of that state with a law
suit in which the sum of money at
issue is eighteen cents, but there is a
principle involved which both sides
are determined should be settled for
all time, III Atlanta, as ill most cities
South of New EnglAnd, one cannot
enter a train without exhibiting a
ticket and having it puched at the
gates. An Atlanta man, to aid a wo
man with a good deal of hand bag
gage, bought a ticket to the nearest
station beyond at. the price named.
It was stamped "redeemable if not
used.'" The purchaser before leav
ing the station presented it for re
demption, but this was refused. He
then went to the local court,, which
decided in his favor. The railroad
company then appealed to a higher
eot, on the ground that, in his pur
chase of tg ticket he simply pre
tended to enter into a contract, and
his purpose was a defraud. Again
the purliaser obtained a judgment,
and the ease is now hef'ore the su
PIeit 1ourt of Georgia. The prinlci
ple of tile plaintiff is that the rail
road had no right to question his
motives when he presented the ticket
for redemption, and that of the rail
road company is that the existence
of the gate system is at issue.
Highly important. decisions have
been based on issue involvinrig very
small money considerations. The su
PIeIe (our of the United States,
last winter, gave a good deal of time
and research to a ease carried before
it on appeal involvin.g only $24 . A
railroad wias in this case, tle defend
int. It owed one of its employees,
a train hand. the sum, which was at
Ichied and collected by one of his
creditors. Thi employee eontended
that. tile nioney was still due him, and
carried the ease ill it Ilhe hilgrhest tri
binal in the land.
