RAILWAY "SCALPING." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898
.RAILWAY ' SCALPING.'' P0BI.IC deportments, like tho mills of the gods, grind very slowly. There the similarity yory often ends. The grinding of tho Circumlocution Department is not at all times ' ex ceeamgiy muuu, ttiuugu uiu eiieoo may be so. Our railway folk awoke to the fact a few years ago th.nt they were beins; pretty badlv handled by tho illegal traders in railway tiokets, usually the retained halves of leturn tiokctb. When these lickots were nr.t iiRpfl bv tlifl norfinnn lnrcit imntnlv holding them, they wore told to persons known as ' sDalpera,' who traded them oft aa occasion offered. After a good many years the depart ments in this colony have arrar ged that tho unused return halves of tickets shall have a surrender valuo. What could be simpler? Tho trade of the ' eoulper' will of course be gono ; but that i8- just what the department and the publio desire to see. It was blundering nnd blind administration that made the existence of the ' scalper' possible.
