MANAGED TO STEAL $50,000 Conductors in League With Ftromen Whose Duty It Was to Destroy Punched Tickets—Bought Latter at $1 Per Hundred and Substituted Them for Good Ones—bight Men Under Airoot* Washington, April 24.—Systematic frauu.s pracuceu uu the lima ol the VVa.shiugtou Traction and Llttttric tompai'y to an extent of probably |3V UOu have been discovered ami eight of the employes, six of whom are con ductors and two liremen, are under ar tist on a barge of conspiracy. The men arrested are George- W. Ca darr and Richard Williams, liremen Oliver A. Gardner, Edward A. Parker, George W. lilait, John J. Rating, John N. Meyers and John W. Hudson, con ductors. The operations, it is claimed, have been goin^ on ior several months. The punched tickets turned in by the conductors are first checked up at the ofiict s and then burned by employes. The investigation that has been in progress, it is stated, discloses that many of the tickets, instead of being destroyed, were saved and sold to conduc tors at $1 per 1 uu and that the conductors who bought them sub stituted them for good tickets. This was done by turning in the old tick ets to the company at the close of each day, the same number of good tickets being retained in the pockets of those who were in the conspiracy. It is also alleged that in many cases the number of fares rung up and the number of passengers on trips have shown a wide divergence. Fireman Cadarr's bond was fixed in the police court at $2/»"o. Officials of tin company say that thev believe all principals in the affair have been ar rested. When H'te'-tives Boyd.
