The conductor then handed Miller a -lot
of punched tickets. He took them
to his room and made a careful exam
ination of them. He found that one of
them had been scorched. He at one
inquired from headquarters what was
done with punched tickets after they
were returned by the conductors and
was informed thst they were placed in
a sack and bnrned in the power house
furnace. He watched the operation
from a place of secrecy and the leak
was discovered. A clerk threw a largo
sack of punched tickets . on the edgs of
the fire and left the room. The fireman
hastily took np a rake and withdrew
the bag of tickets, stamping out tha
fire. These tickets were sold to the

then tried several plans to catch tho
conductors who were using them, and
were at last successful in locating i.f.
