HOW ONE RAILWAY COMPANY ADROITLY EVADES THE LAW When a Passenger Pays Only a Mr hr) the Remaining Penny Is Asked, IfRefased the Driver Is Instructed to Make a BlnR By Taking the Passenger's damn. in ... is That the i ffici&ls of the Wilmington City railway are trying te evade the law in the matter manifest, from the curious orders which given to the street ear drivers. Prominently on tho face of th» box where the fare is deposited are the plain words: "Fare, 6 coûta," and the pas senger has only to raise his eves pod look around to know that the driver is uot rules. of 5 cent fares is In of at liberty to go contrary to anv The standing rule on the question of fares has been that drivers should demand unpaid or the balance of insufficient fares aud 111 eject the passenger, refuse to leave, then there was a legal remedy and he could be prosecuted for d soido tly conduct. That this rigid rule is uot enforced now an Evbnxng Journal reporter as certained (Saturday. While the Wil mlngton City railway peroists as he observed in asking. 8 cent fares, yet they will not refuse a nickel for ibe reason, it is supposed, that to do so is illegal A reporter bounded a car at Second and Market streets Saturday, and deposited a trickle in the box attbe same time, banded npa nickel which be also deposited for her. The driver did not examine the non!eats of the box until several fares had been deposited. Then he saw the nickels, but merely looked stolidly at, those In tho car, wluced, but, said nothing. "Do you wish to know who deposited the uickels?" aked f be reporter. "Yes." he answered; "I'd like to know their names " "Then here is my card I ; '* u. A. en«© of refund Shorold the lattr I ■ A woman who entered I deposited Wbat Instrnetions hav» you?" "We have been told to get the name.if possible, of the passenger, demand the remaining penny aud. should he refuse, report the matter at, the offie*." "When were these instructions given Oil" ; h yon ? "About a month ago " "Siuce tho passage of the late lew?" "1 think so " This was all he knew Tbe reporter attempted to interview Superintendent Archer, but be could not. be found, When returning he boarded'another car aud deposited another nickel The driver opened the door and civilly informed him that the fare wus 8 cents. "Suppose I refuse to pay, what are von Instructed to do?' "Get the passenger's name a»d report It at the office That is all," "And should he refuse to give his nam*-?" "We must leave him alone." ' How many passeagers have you daily who pay only 5 emits?" • Well, not many I had two last Sunday, but some of the other drivers had five or six, each day." From the foregoing Interviews it will be aeeu that while the railway company persists In askiug 6 cents for each ride, yet they do not enforce their rnJis by vj"«ring the passengers w pay and thus lay tuemselves There are always a few ho ref&a© to pen to prosecution. Of course few people want to have the driver ask them for the mainiug cent, and especially giris and yonag women will not do so under re ally eircumstance, so that It is )ik«ly that the company will continue to charge those who pay, the old rate, i:inr.U tbe elsctric ears are put on about Jane 1, when a uniform rate of 8 cents-will be charged.
