Democratic National Ticket. For President-- ' ALTON B. PARKER, of New York. For Vice President- IaN*R i. DA,..l West r. gin . A PARER 1ECISION. The New York legislature passed a law making it a crime for any one except an agent of a railroadeompany to sell a railroad ticket, even an unused ticket. or portion of a ticket. That legislature was Republican. The Republican governor of New York signed the bill and it became a law. But some traveling men in New York took that law into the courts. It got into the court of appeals, of which Judge Parker was a member, and he declared the law unconstitu tional. That was right. The person who buys a railroad ticket'becomes the owner of it. The man who buys a horse becomes the owner of it and has the right to sell it. Why should the roads try to prevent purchasers of railroad , ickets from selling them? There would be no ticket scalpers if the roads would charge only reasonable rates. We don't see persons scalping postage stamps. There is no Upited states law against a man's selling a postage stamp to another person. The railroads charge from two to five times as much as their service is worth, and then try to make the laws. Judge Parker's decision shows that he is not in favor of laws made by railroads for injuring citizens. Mrs. A. M. Webber is closing out her large stock of fall and winter mil linery at Cost.

Comparative cost and work under Rickards and Toole. The 1895 Legislature created this important office for examination of all state and county offices handling public money, and supervision of banks incorporated under the state law, The annual salary of.t he State "Examiner was fixed at $4,000 and of his assistant at p83,000, which amounts were to ineThde all travelling and offioe expenses. The appointees, D. D. Bogart and E. W. Stetson, went into office March, 1895; and continued until Eareh, 1897. The annual cost for salaries arid expenses under Gov. Rickards was $7,000. The 1897 Legislature tixed salaries at $2,000 and $1,500, but made aditional appropriations to cover traveling and office expenses. The present incumbents appointed by Gov. Toole are V. Hnudnall and Assistant F. H. Ray, who have tilled the office since March, 1901. The average annual cost :f the office under Gov. Toole has been $5,200° or $1,800 per year less than under Gov. Rickards. WORK INCREASED; EXPENSES REDUCED Prior to 1895 there was no uniform system in the county offices, and Mr. Bogart is entitled to credit for in augurating a uniform system of accounting. in 23 counties. His report foe year ending Nov. 30, 1895, shows that the Examiner had to examine iand report On 23 counties, 9 banks, 6 As showing a very large increse, contrast with the above, the Ninth Annual Report of State Examiner, for year ending Nov. 30, 1903, in which Examiner Hudnall says: "During the past year this office has made person al examinations and reported on 26 counties, 28 banks, 7 state offices, 1 state board, 1 building 'and loan association. The increase of 3 counties, 19 banks and 1 state office does not fully measure the larger amount of work, because the volume of business done in county and state offices has markedly increased since 1895-6, con sequently the examiner's labors in each office have correspondingly increased. The growth in banking department is over 300 per cent in number, and the increase in volume of business is indicated by the fact that the total resources of the nine state banks, $3,421,557.23, as reported Oct. 7, 1895, is now exceeded almost a million dollars by a single bank, the State Savings of Butte. BACK TAXES AND LICENSES. The Examiner's 1903 report shows that at his request, test suits were begun in 1901 against the R. M. B. Telephone Co., for license they refused to pay, which after being carried to the supreme court were decided in favor of the state and resulted ii collection of $3,348 back licenses. Delinquent Taxes: In 1901 the Examiner's office began a systematic collection of taxes then delinquent, some of which had been owing for ten years, and inaugurated an im. proved method of accounting such taxes. The total collection of these old delinquent taxes (those delinquent prior to 1901, only) was up to Nov. 30, 1903, $94,036.58. This sum will be augmented more than $25,000 by col lections made this year. The above does not include a dollar of taxes which become delinquent during the incumbency of the presentappointees but is for amounts owed when they went into office. Interest coupons recovered. This office also saved the State more than the annual salary of both its incum bents in the matter of interest coupons on bonds issued by the Arid Land Grant Commission. In checking payments made to contractors the office held that $4,530 in interest cou pons had been wrongly issued and those were recovered and cancelled. No one is so hard on shoes as a boy.
