The ticket brokers look upon the
recent decision of a St. Paul judge
that the law to break up scalping
tickets, passed by tbe legislature of
Minnesota, is unconstitutional, as
being strongly in their favor, and
while the question may be carried to
the supreme court of tbe United
State: tbe mttorner of tbe ticket
brokers are confident the decision
w stand,. In cnmrnenUng on ba
decision the tlcveiami vernier savs:
The railroads might as well give
up tbe notion that tbey ran make it
a crime for a man who buys one of
their tickets to sell it again, and
that is tbe substance of the broker
age business. In common sense,
and. we believe, in law, a railroad
ticket Is just as legitimate a subject
of sale or Imrter as theatre tickets, a
bank note or a hat. The transpor
tation is paid at the company's price
originally, and unless a special con
tract is made with the individual
purchaser bo cannot lie prevented
Inn selling, trading or giving away
what Is nbsnlutcly his own. The
fact that ticket brokers do so much
to keep down railroad fares and to
prevent tbe discrimination against
passengers and in favor of large
shippers of freight from liecoming
even greater than it is. can hardly
be considered a valid reason for do.
nylng their right to buy and sell like
other business men.

in at the sanitarium the other

quisitive individual in hand and put
him through a course of sprouts.
After being escorted from tbe main
reception rooms through the offices
of each of the physicians, Drs. Craig,
Carter and Bernhardt, which are
conveniently situated adjoining the
middle hall that runs the entire
length of the sanitarium, the sub
ject was given a practical under
standing of the operation of the va

sanitarium proper affords. In fact
he was initiated ami given all the va
