Talk about red tape In government
business. It can hardly exceed the
mass ol detail that must be bandied in
adjusting claims against a railroad.
Sume weeks ago we noted a slight mis.
take In the rate on a shipment of paper
received at our office. We notified the
freight department of the railroad In
question in order to avoid future mis
takes. The local agent asked us toit
return the incorrect freight bill which
we did. Then began the unwinding of
department strings. We received no
lice from the local sgent that our
claim bad been entered. In a few days
we received further notice coming from
the freight claim spent at headquarters
that our claim for 8c bad been entered
there and would receive prompt atten
tion. The local agent of course re
ceived alike notice and notified us on
his part. We began to feel we really
bad a grievance against the Railroad
Company and patted ourselves on the
back, for standing up for our rights
and demanding the return of the over
charged 8 cents. Several days later
arrived, a notice from headquarters
that our claim had been allowed and
we could get the sum by palling for it
at our local offlce., We promptly
called up our genial local agect to
verify the glad news and be said that
when he received word from headquar
ters to pay us be would send it to our
Office. This he very obligingly did the
following day and we are the proud
holders ot a check No. 73H2 for "Only
eight cents" signed by tbe Auditor of
the Company in paymentof our Claim,
No. 193,103,414. Can you beat it?
