Somebody-or-other is $O the front with such a measure, Charles Erin Verner, the well known Irish comedian who appears at the Bakcrafleld Opera House tomorrow evening(, is in possesion of an entirely unsolicited letter from the well-known Irish patriot, Patrick Egan, which reads as follows: Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 6, '98. Dear Mr. Verner: Let me congratulate you most heartily upon the success of your presentation and your Irish play, "Shamus O'Brien. 11 It is educational and elevating, racy and refined, devoid of one single touch of coarse caricature. It portrays to the life genuine Iiish character It overflows with brightest Irish fun and frolic, most touching pathos and pure patriotism, all rendered by a company whose hearts are evidently in the work. In brief, it is the most truly delightful Irish piece and acting I have ever seen upon the stage and the agitation is on.

Auditors to Take Tickets Now Jfc Heroafter on the Pacific system of the Southern Pacific the train conductor will no more be the man to take up and punch tickets, but passengers will have their squabbles over fares and tickets with the train auditor, who will replace the ticket taking conductor of the days of old. The change over the division went into effect yestctday and while the details of it are not officially known here three essential departures have been made from the prevailing rule in this: Train agents have been discontinued. Conductors are relieved of all duties in connection with the collection of tickets and fares. The train auditor \viil hereafter handle that part of the business. The change !n effect on the main line and nil Important branches, involves putting on in-\v men, a much larger number than the total number of train agents, whoso duty it was to board trains at the larger stations and accompany them on the up and down trips to pass upon and to punch tickets before the conductor mado bis rounds to take up the passed upon ticket.
