Mr. Sexton has the valuable assist

weeks during the summer the Joliet

home, and received its orders through
the Kock Island ottice. All Western
league transportation was arranged
through the local i.fTiee. and from
here $19,000 was paid out in-railroad
fare-for the clubs of that organiza

vas.t amount of detail work of which
the public knows nothing connected
with the presidency of these leagues,

THE NEW TICKET
Facts Concerning Form of Trans

Passenger officials of most of the
western railroads have reached an
agreement to commence Anv. 1 tlie
use of interchangeable mileage tick
ets, good oi trains, in place of the
present credential system. The chair
man of the Western Passenger associ
ation has been notified to prepare 4o
handle the new ticket in the mileage
bureaux of the association Nov. 1, al
ii, to have printed and distributed the
rules and regulations to ticket agents
and purchasers of the new ticket. It
will be 'good on the -following:
Chicago $.- Northwestern, Chicago.
St. Paul, Minneapolis &, Omaha, Chi
cago, Burlington & Quiney, Chicago &
Alton, Chicago (Jreat Western, Wis
consin Central, Illinois Central, (Jreat
Northern, Northern Pacific, Minneapo
lis & St. Louis, Iowa Central, Quiney,
Omaha & Kansas City.
Kcpect Others to Follow.
The roads which have agreed to use
the new tickets are confident that
others will do so later. The principal
roads which have not voted the
change from the present system are
the Kock Island, Santa Fe and Could
lines. Cnder the rules of the mileage
bureau of the Western Passenger a
sociation aay road may use either
form of mileage ticket but not both.
The new ticket will cover .2.0U0 mile
and will be sold for $(). If the origi
nal purchaser uses it exclusively he
will be pnid'a rebate of $19.50, there
by reducing the cost of his transpor
tation to practically 2 cents a mile.
Train conductors will honor the
ticket regardless of whether or not
it is presented by the original purchas
er, the mileage bureau being relied
upon to discover if more than one
person has traveled on it. One of the
principal reasons for the adoption of
a ticket for which !?"0 must be paid
in advance is to prevent the so-called
local use of it. In other words tho
plan is to make a great many people
who now travel for 2 cents a mile
pay 3 cents.
Him Uca Kay to t Certificate.
Under the credential system, which
has been in use for several 3 ears, by
paying $1 anybody can secure a cer
tificate which entitles him to a re
hate making his transportation cost
him 2 cents a mile, provided he trav
els 2.000 miles in a year. Tor each
trip he pnid the full rate, saving a re
ceipt given by the ticket agent, and on
these receipts the rebate was paid
through the. West.eiui Passenger asi
sociation.". It is said much complaint
has been made by commercial travel
ers, that they hist time by having to
purchase tickets and get receipts,
