The tricks of these sharpers, as cata logued by persons who have Investigat ed complaints, range from the outright sale of the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn bridge for an amount equiva lent to the entire savings of the immi grant to the sale of subway tickets at a cost of from .$10 to $20 each, "good for a trip to Chicago."
