CHEAP RAILWAY TICKETS. An interesting railway passenger case was tried at the Wandsworth County-court on Mon- day, when the Great Western Railway Com- pany sued Miss Hawke, of Clapliam-park, for lis. lid., the fare between Weymouth and Lon- don. It was stated that the company issued half-day excursion tickets between London and various places at rates which were much lower for the return journey than those charged for the single journey. Persons had taken advan- tage of this practice to purchase excursion tickets in London and send them to their friends in the country, who thus secured a cheap ticket to London. To meet this situation the company issued a special form of ticket, and required that the return half should be clipped by the ticket col- lectcr on the outgoing journey. Miss Hawke presented a Ticket that was not so clipped, and refused to pay the full single far a when it was demanded. Judge Russell Lfonnd that the com- pany's i. were reasonable, and gave judgment in its favour for 6s. Id., the differ- ence between the single third-class fare from Yeovil to London and the price paid for the ticket.
