It is not likely that similar instances will
occur frequently where passengers will tender large
cheques payable to C*P*.R, , covering value of Dominion
Express Money Orders or Travellers Cheques as well as
tickets purchased, but it would be well to have Agent
understand in such cases Special Debit should be taken
an our Balance Sheet for balance covering amount due

Dear Sir:-

Referring to your G 256424 of the
I would have advised Mr. Travis to
accept the marked cheque in. favor of the Canadian
Pacific Railway for the full amount and deposit the cheque
to the credit of the Canadian Pacific Railway advice
of which should be sent to your Company that the $3,000*00
belonged to the Dominion Express Company having beon issued
in payment of Travellers Cheques at the time certain
tickets were issued, and at the same time advise the
Dominion Express Company what he had done so that we
could then take matter up with a view of getting settlement.
There is no doubt that Mr. Miller
looked upon the Dominion Express Company and the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company as one and it would have beea
a mistake to send, him out for new cheques.

With reference  to our correspondence  exchanged,  your
file Cr-236424,   also  copy of Dominion Express  Rule 983.
In this case, Mr. Miller,  one of our Mediterranean
Cruise passengers,  knew what  the halance was onk    his  transportation
ticket,   and as he had previously heen solicited for travellers Checks
and had heen quoted their charges,  he came to  the office with a
certified check made payahle to  the Canadian Pacific Railway to  cover
all when making his  final settlement.   In view of this  fact,  we could
hardly ask Mr,  Miller to make new checks.

Referring to Local Treasurer*s wire to me of
September I7th reading •'Travelling Auditor advises Mr- H.
Gatje appointed agent San Francisco in place of A.P.Villain.
Please advise if in order to make arrangements with Bank
for transfer of funds at credit of revolving account held in
name of A.P*Villain to that of Mr. R* Gatje-* to which I replied
on the 218th as follows, *Y„W.I* San Francisco transferred to
H*Gatje yesterday. It will be in order for you to arrange with
Bank for transfer of balance at credit Villain to nee agent
Gatje*, and Local Treasurer wrote you on September 19th asking
you to see that the B.A. Bank, San Francisco were furnished with
a facsimile of Mr. Gatje*s signature.
My wire of September 18th advising Local Treasurer that **It would be in order for him to arrange with Bank
for transfer of balance at Credit Villain to new agent Gatje11,
was sent under a misapprehension that the bank account referred
to was a Company's account in the name of Villain as our agent.
This is not the case, it is a personal account, and not in our
agent's name as agent CP^Ry^, and it is not desirable that our
Local Treasurer should give Ban^^nstruetions in regard to
such an account. Outgoing agent Villain could have given Incoming agent a cheque for the balance, which could have been
deposited in latter*s own name thus opening: a new account. This
would have effected the transfer* Will you please have this
clearly under-stood by Local Treasurer for the future,- and advise*

Dear Sir:-
Los Angeles - Form 1659.
In your wire of October 2nd you stated
that too many Companies and complications*,involved for
the use of above form in purchasing and settling for tickets,
purchased from initial lines, and in my letter of October
4th in reply to this, I wrote you that "I could not see
that there are, as you say, too many Companies and complications involved. It seems to me daily settlement would
simplify matters as a cheque for each purchase during the
day would certainly keep Agent busy m*
I am under the impression, that in a letter
of October 4th you followed this wire up with an explanation
of the "complications* referred to, but this letter (if
written) has been mislaid, and I would be glad to have a copy-
or if there is no such explanation, please let me have one

practicable or advisable to use this form for this purpose ^/^v^%

San Francisco and Lot Angelos.
Referring to your letter September 2?th, and remarks,
page 2, my letter October 4th regarding agent placing funds in the bank,
against which he might issue cheque* in payment of ticket© purchased
from initial linee*
I have since called on the Local Treasurer regarding the
question of advances to these agents, and I find that instructions will
not permit hi* to transfer an amount exceeding #1000* The attached copy
of memo handed down from Mr. Salsbury would indicate that up te flOOO.
can be advanced agent San Praneisce to replenish his Revolving Fund; but
only $500. for any other purpose, unless authorized by our Vice-President,
I think that the situation at these offices has now
bean made clear, and that it is realised that agents may require amounts
in excess of this. Such a situation is not likely to arise during the
next few months; But froa May to September agent at Loa Angelos will be
obliged to ask for transfers in excess of $500.00, and San Francisee will
ne doubt require amounts in excess of $1000.
I have pointed out that, if the irregularities in the
handling of cheques are to be avoided, it will be necessary to increase
the agents1 working fund during the summer months, San Francisco tef
at least, #2000. and Los Angelos to #1200. It also should be arranged,
if possible, that our Local Treasurer be authorised to increase the
amount he may transfer to these agents. In any case, it is necessary
that we have this point made clear, so that agents will know when it is
necessary to wire Mr. Ogden direct and thus avoid delay in obtaining
funds required.
Will you please advise.

Deposit Receipt Form for use in Los Angelas
Office in connection with purchasing of rail
tickets from Initial Lines,
Yours of October 19th with reference to the above.
Inasmuch as Los Angelos office appeared to "be able to
obtain cash frost prospective passengers before actually obtaining tickets
from initial lines, which is contrary to the practice in our other U.S.
Agencies, I see no objection to the proposed temporary receipt form and
the manner in which it is intended to use it,
As outlined in your letter above referred to, this
proposed receipt form simply takes the place of a receipt given in the
ordinary way for money received for tickets to be purchased, except that
by having a duplicate to attach to the file and triplicate copy left in ±
the receipt book to act as a stub to which original receipt is attached
after transaction is completed, enables the Audit Dept. to have a clear
record of just what cash on hand covers,
I wish you would kindly watch this very carefully and let
me know later just feow it works out. If I am able to get the Santa le
people through their chief officers at Chicago to accept our regular I*0*U
form which will, of course, be useful where passengers do not desire t®
pay for actual transportation which has not been delivered to them, it
my  enable us to get the Southern Pacific to do likewise.

Travelling Auditor,

Los Angeles, Cal.
Dear Sir:-
Los AngeleSj^Cal.
Referring to your wire of second to which I
replied today authorizing working fund be increased to i?50*00*
I enclose letter which you will please deliver to agent to be
kept on file - authorising this cash balance which should be
kept in bank in an account to be opened in his own name
personally (not as agent)- except the amount required in the
office for change.  This should not be |250»00 as you suggest,
however, as the latter seems to me far in excesa of amount
required for this purpose.
Your wire reads "Strongly recommend cheque
issued in settlement all purchases not delay credit and not
use sixteen fifty nine11. Should not word underlined read Hdaily?
If so, would say it is not clear to me why settlement should
not be made daily* If cheque for each purchase is necessary it
will certainly complicate matters , especially during the busy
season? - and on the other hand, I cannot see that there are, as
you say, too many Companies and complications involved*. It
seems to me daily settlement would simplify matters, as a cheque
for each purchase during the day would certainly Seep agent busy.
If daily settlement is arranged this would of course necessitate
the use of Form 1659 as at San Francisco^ Please advise what
is arranged»
Referring to your letter September 26th. It must
be thoroughly understood by Agent and all concerned that Company's
funds must not be used under any circumstances to cash cheques
as a convenience to friends or otherwise.

A* W. Tennant, Esq* ,       -asportation Companies would provide their solicitors with
numbered form in ev~ry case, such as So- Pacific receipt
for tickets delivered to solicitors, attached to your letter of
September 15th (see last par- P. 2) herewith returned.  Surely
this would be a better protection and check both for them and
for us than a mere scrap of paper writteij^by .Solicitor ?
Cannot this be arranged for the future ?A ox#course contingent
upon the approval of Mr. Ogden to the continuance of the system
of I.O*U*s as requested in General Agent Nason's letter of 27th
ult., to me, copy of which was sent Vice-President by him*
Re deposits in"British American Bank" for
remittances to Local Treasurer* Instructions to agent San
Francisco contained in Local Treasurers circular letter $5210
September 15th, 1919, are very clear, and I presume are well
understood by you, and you should see that new agents at San
Francisco and Los Angeles have copies and understand thoroughly
what is required*
Re deposit Slip, carbon of which you attach.
The latter looks as if made up by Bank teller*  I cannot see
how the numbers representing Banks on which cheques are drawn
can be known to our agent* In any case, details of all cheques
should be shown , such as name of drawer and Bank on which drawn,
besides amount, in future* Please instruct agents accordingly.
I return carbon deposit ?lip, and enclose sample receipt referred
to in Local Treasurer*s circular letter above referred to - to
be remitted by agents specially authorized to deposit in local
banks for thu Credit of C-P^Ry., instead of remitting receipts
direct to Bank of Montreal* Vancouver*
As wired you today, G*p«>A. , Vancouver advises that
he cannot arrange transfer of Los Angeles any sooner than 16th
instant.  Transfer to be made to Y» R* Thorn at present Chief
Clerk Calgary* He also advises he expects to be able to have
transfer made at San Francisco about the same time to permanent

Reverting to your letter 26th ult. , P. 7 re
Messenger Boy running to and from S.P* office with cash and
tickets* Please have agent thoroughly understand that if he
delegates this duty to a Messenger Boy or other assistant, he
must realise that he Mr agent is fully responsible for the
safety of all monies or tickets thus transferred, aad must
take the necessary steps to see that proper receipts are obtained,
and either the tickets or cash or their equivalent checked over
on his return to see that everything is 0*K# Please advise if
this is duly understood* Page 9.- Xou speak of a daily draft

REPEATED TELEGRAM AND PAID FOR AB SUCH, in consideration whereof it is agreed between the sender of the telegram and this Company
as follows:
1. The Company shall not be liable for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery, of any telegram received for transmission at the UNREPEATED-MESSAGE rate, whether caused by the negligence of its servants or otherwise, beyond the sum of FIVE HUNDRED
DOLLARS; nor for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery, of any message received for transmission at the REPEATED-MESSAGE rate, beyond the sum of FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS; nor for mistakes or delays in the transmjssion'or delivery,,or for
non-delivery, wof any message received for transmission at the SPECIALLY VALUED MESSAGE rate, beyond the sum at which such message shall
be valued, in'writing, by the sender thereof when tendered for transmission and for which payment is made or agreed to be made of the amount
of the repeated-message rate and an additional charge equal to one-tenth of one per cent of the amount by which such written valuation shall exceed
five thousand dollars; nor in any case for delays arising from unavoidable interruption in the working of its lines, or for errors in cipher or obscure
messages.
2. The Company is hereby made the agent of the sender, without liability, to forward this telegram over the lines of any other company when
necessary to reach its destination.
3. Messages will be delivered free within one-half mile of the Company's office in towns of 5,000 population or less, and within one mile of such

request, as his agent and at his expense, endeavor to contract for him for such delivery at a reasonable price.
4. No responsibility attaches to this Company concerning messages until the same are accepted at one of its transmitting offices; and if a message

Travelling Auditor,

605 South Spring Street,
Los Angeles, Cal*
Dear Sir:-
San FranscisccCalm
Your letters 19th inst*
When a refund is requested before the ticket issued
has been booked, refund is made without using P.T. 50. The returned
ticket if not re-sold same da^s"Cancelled^and attached to ticket
report. Section 62,page 19 of awte^ reads - If from any cause ticket
is not taken by passenger for whom it was dated,stamp or write the
word "Cancelled11 across face and back of each portion and send it   ?
with ticket report to A.P.R. reporting same as ,lSpoiledwunless it
is practicable for you to sell it for the same train on that day,to
some other passenger."
If ticket has been booked and refund application is
made within thirty days, receipt is taken on form P.T.50 which is
remitted with lifted ticket to Treasurer as caslu(See Clause 200
p. 56, Instructions to Ticket Agents.§Z)m
I note you have instructed agent as to the handling of
P.T.50. If So. Pac. Rly tickets, tny refunds made account cancellations
can be deducted from subsequent daily settlements^
Re form 1659 - I note you instructed Mr. Villain to
settle with So-Pac.Rly for any orders on ?/hich passengers had paid
us - and you say if he kept his funds in Bank, he could clear up all
outstanding transactions with So. Pac. on 7 th. 14th. 21st and Slst by
cheque, and avoid taking special debit for amounts collected but not
paid So.Pac.Rly.
I hardly understand your remarks. If settlements were
P**4* daily as per my letter August 17th. , for all tickets purchased
from So.Pac. there would be no outstanding transactions to clear up,
not for special debits such as you refer to (See end of letter).
In reference to your three propositions Nos.l and 3
  	 o
(2)
are not acceptable. All cheques should be made payable to C.P.R. and
remitted to Local Treasurer. We cannot instruct agents not to accept
cheques in payment of tickets^nor deposits on tickets to be
purchased or issued.
Re Bank Account - It was my understanding that agent was
depositing all other receipts in the Bank in his own name (not as
agentUt, but it now appears (from your remarks) he has been keeping
all receipts (including any cash advanced him by Local Treasurer) in
the office safe until used on settlements or remitted. This is wrong
and new agent should be put right. Please advise when this has been
done. A personal Bank account in his own name will enable him to
settle with So.Pac. and all other initial lines by cheque; daily,as
you suggest.
Jujtjealt*»(z) ihere appears to be no need at present to increase
authorised cash balance, if agent can promptly obtain advances from
Local Treasurer to replenish his account when depleted by daily
settlements.
I note from your wire of September 21st., that you "Will
take care of the situation till proper arrangements are made," and
that you are writing further,- presumably as to what is being arranged
in this connection.
Re 3rd suggestion - You say "Cancel" our Special Bank
Account etc*, and on page three of same letter you^state ^Mr.Byrne
replied advising Bank Account limited to $1000.00
H
I am not aware of any Bank Account. Do you no$ mean agent's
cash balance authorized by this Department, which is limjbed to |1000.00?
I understand when Local Treasurer arranges an advance to
agent for payroll purposes he authorizes Bank to xss&Kp accept and
cash draft drawn by agent.on Bank form of draft,which is then sent
Loca? Treasurer for collection,- but this is not a special Bank'account?
Reverting to your letter of September 13th.
Re form 1659. Thsre is no objection to details being
entered by-each clerk in form H.L. (daily sales book) which you
state you have inaugurated. It seems to me summary of these could
be made in form H.B. by each clerk, along with other sales when
balance is made at close of day's business - to be checked by agent
when net balance or receipts is turned over to latter. I cannot see
the necessity of also entering details o.f 1659 in agent's cash book.
Form 1659 should be the only form of IoQ.U. given to
any roadt from whom tickets are purchased. General Agent Nason was
 .—       	 O W
was so instructed in my letter August 16th.1915,"When this matter
is settled (Form 164$ inaugurated) we cannot permit I.O.U's to
go out without forming part of a numbered form, and if they (S.P.
Ri$) fail to agree to this the only thing to be done, I presume, is
to pay for your tickets in cash as you get them."
In connection with suggestion for agent to pay into his
bank account all receipts other than cheques made payable to C.P.
Rly (which should be remitted to Local Treasurer) - you mention
agent depositing in the Bank " For transfer to our Treasury". Would
not agent buy a bank draft with day*s cash receipts which he remits
to Local Treasurer? or when Bank account is opened I presume he
would deposit receipts therein and draw a cheque favour of the
Bank in payment for draft to be remitted to Local Treasurer - otherwise if agent's cheque on his personal account were remitted to
Local Treasurer,cash would remain in agent's account until cheque
is returned through connecting Banks for collection. This is a
matter ho?/ever for Local Treasurer to instruct agent. /&^adAu/$c^3kjaZisdon^\
Purchasing Pullman tickets (as per last paragraph,Page 2).
Please see remarks above re no I.O#D's to be issued other than part
of 1659. Why cannot we settle for Pullman tickets same as for
" Initial Line" tickets - daily - by agent's personal cheque? If
obtained from So.Pac. would come into settlement with that line.
Receipt form in triplicate for San Francisco and Los
Angeles* I cannot see any objection to the practice of taking
deposits from passengers before purchasing tickets,and have no
objection to form of receipt in triplicate being put in instead of
duplicate used at present, this receipt to show clearly what
transportation deposit covers.
The sample of duplicate receipt in use at Los Angeles
is a very poor affair. If this however can be printed in triplicate,
locally, it might temporarily serve until a proper form can be
supplied by Passenger Department, numbered.
It might be somewhat in the shape of sample form 7
attached^used by Steamship Agents,- but adapted to rail business.
I presume you will have suitable form drafted and submitted by
agent to Passenger Traffic Manager for use in these two offices.
The oringial portion lifted from passenger could be attached to
stub in each clerk's book. These books would have to be kept
carefully checked over by agent to see that none are issued out of
order.
Los Angeles - "Form 1659" you say,cannot be used under
its present rauke \x^% as So.Pac. require two copies of our orders
in their office. I presume you mean as a receipt to passenger? o
(4)
If So. Pac. require t?/o copies for use in their office
why could not a blank sheet (such as used for carbon copy in
typewriter) be inserted to obtain the extra copy?
You say So. Pac. demands cash for all tickets supplied.
Could you not see them and endeavour to have them consent to a
daily settlement by agent's cheque - latter to open Bank account
in his own name into which all receipts to be paid and daily
settlements made, as suggested at San Francisco. I think the system
of settlement should be made uniform at both agencies.
It seems to me the other difficulties you name - to
provide evidence that we have paid for tickets purchased - to
satisfy ourselves that tickets - Pullman or otherwise - which
we have obtained have been paid forCexcept those not yet included
in daily settlement)etc., will disappear with the adoption of the
use of personal bank account. Agent's cheque issued for all
disbursementsrdaily settlements with all initial lines from whom
tickets are procured,-abolition of 1.0,0's except form 165§*and
proper recording of all deposit receipts and daily cash balance made
by agents.

J Special debit 7/8/23 $399.71.
Special Credit 14/9/23 §399.71.
Special Debit 14/9/23 |1705.95.
Special debits and credits have been taken on agent 's
balance sheets as above. We will require receipt from So.Pac.
Rly for $399.71 or some evidence that this amount was allowed
them in settlement. Similarly when special credit is taken for
|1705.95. Please arrange on your return to San Francisco.

REPEATED TELEGRAM AND PAID FOR AS SUCH, in consideration whereof it is agreed between the sender of the telegram and this Company
as follows:
1. The Company shall not be liable for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery, of any telegram received for transmission at the UNREPEATED-MESSAGE rate, whether caused by the negligence of its servants or otherwise, beyond the sum of FIVE HUNDRED
DOLLARS; nor for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery, of any message received for transmission at the REPEATED-MESSAGE rate, beyond the sum of FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS; nor for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for
non-delivery, of any message received for transmission at the SPECIALLY VALUED MESSAGE rate, beyond the sum at which such message shall
be valued, in writing, by the sender thereof when tendered for transmission and for which payment is made or agreed, to be made of the amount
of the repeated-message rate and an additional charge equal to one-tenth of one per cent of the amount by which such written valuation shall exceed
five thousand dollars; nor in any case for delays arising from unavoidable interruption in the working of its lines, or for errors in cipher or obscure
messages.
2. The Company is hereby made the agent of the sender, without liabttity, to forward this telegram over the lines of any other company when
necessary to reach its destination.

request, as his agent and at his expense, endeavor to contract for him for such delivery at a reasonable price,
4. No responsibility attaches to this Company concerning messages Until the same are accepted at one of its transmitting offices; and if a message
is sent to such offiee by one of the Company's messengers, he acts for that purpose as the agent of the sender.
5. The Company shall not be liable for damages or statutory penalties in any case where the claim is not presented in writing within sixty days
after the telegram is filed with the Company for transmission.
6. It is agreed that prompt and correct transmission and delivery of this message shall be presumed in any action for recovery of tolls therefor „

7. Special terms governing the transmission of messages under the classes of messages enumerated below shall apply to messages in each of such

A. M.  Tennant,  Esq-,
Travelling Auditor,
Vancouver,   B*C.
Dear Sir:-
San grancigco_and Los Angeles.
Your letter of 31st ult.
As you are probably aware Mr* McConnell interviewed
Mr* Snell at his request, and gave him particulars of
irregularities found at his last visit to San Francisco. Mr*Snell
expressed great dissatisfaction with conditions reported, in
fact Mr. McDonnell states he would not be surprised if a change
of agents at this point were made - as Mr. Snell stated he would
not wish to put in a 2. P* A. (Gatje) as agent but a new man with
experience in accounting matters* This for your information when
interviewing Mr. Snell before you go South (to which I have no
objection) so that you may get his ideas as to any changes in staff
which may be considered necessary.
As to additional Cashier to take charge of accounting for
the busy months of the year, which you suggest.lt is now getting
towards the close of the rush season for this year and I should not
think this would be feasible for this year.If this can be arranged
for next year,however, it must be borne in mind, first that such
appointment must not affect agent* s responsibility in any way for
cash and accounts of the office. Secondly■ - Such appointee must be
thoroughly reliable. Such an appointment being only temporary for
part of the year, it would not be advisable to place a stranger or
outsider in such a position,but a ticket seller or clerk whose
honesty is proven - whose position as ticket clerk etc., could be
also filled for the time being and I presume bond would be applied
for to cover his good behaviour♦
This matter could be brought before G.P*A.in this way -
Please let me know result.
San Francisco. In regard to "Bunching* entries in Cash
Book - of form 1659 - You state you intend to insist upon these
entries being made in detail at the time of each transaction, even
if it vmuiit  should interfere with attention to customers at the o
(2)
counter.- Would say you will be in best position to judge as to
whether this is practicable or desirable, when you have seen the
daily business transacted, and I would leave it to your judgment
us to whether it will not unduly interfere with attention to
customers at the counter before giving definite instructions* If
it would do so, could it not be arranged, at the close of each
day's business to summarize entries on form 1659 and make one entry
in cash book total receipts per form 1659 No*—~~-to—«——?
Re daily settlement with S*P. Rly* I see no reason why
daily settlement by cheque should not be made with S*P*,Rly, for
all tickets furnished by them* which as you state would force agent
to prompt deposit of all receipts daily in Bank*
Re placing outstanding all Pullman tickets purchased to
be held till passengers call for same - as per Mr. McConnell's
report* This would necessitate a credit entry for amount paid out
in every case in cash book and a debit entry therein when ticket
lifted and paid for* I cannot see why this is necessary as it would
certainly entail a lot of accounting during the rush season* Would
it not be as well to leave the matter as it is - tickets purchased
being carried as cash until lifted and paid for? If this reduces
agent:s cash balance to such an extent as to make it impossible to
carry on the business as required - agent shopld make application
for amount required* giving reasons. Could not a daily settlement
be arranged by cheque with Pullman Coy,however,- using form 1659?
There is no objection to separate record being kept for
Express Money Orders, Baggage Insurance and W* P.& Y. tickets -
receipts and remittances* Re latter - Mr* McConnell advised June
29th., that Los Angeles keeps a very good record and he was able
to make a good check of W* P* & Y- business handled by Mr. Everett,
T. P. A* - but at San ffrancisco a poor record was kept and agent
was instructed to keep a proper record.
Los Angeles - Re ordinary receipt given passenger by agent
and cash being held overnight by clerks* You state further down -
"If we cannot make use of 1659 at this office wo should have some
standard form of receipt11 etc.
I cannot soe why form 1659 should not be used as it provides
for "Cash received* and particulars as to what it ©overs* It is also
numbered consecutively and the duplicate could be Hept and form a
record until the transaction is completed*When tickets are delivered
original form 1659 should, of course, be lifted, and attached to o
(3)
duplicate* This, of course, covers the system of using cash
received from passengers to purchase tickets, as now in effect.
I would hesitate to change this system to a daily
settlement by cheque with S. P.Rly, as tho requirements of the
business at Los Angeles do not seem to make it desirable and it
would necessitate a special bank account which we wish to avoid!
I understand there is a stock of 1643 at Los Angeles which is not
used. These could be returned and requisition made for 1659 if it
is decided to put latter into use.
in regard to daily balance of cash at both agencies, we
must insist upon this being done without fail, and it would be well
to advise fir. Snell that this is absolutely necessary to protect
Company's revenue, that proper staff must be provided to enable
agents to do so- Could form H.B. (ticket clerks1 daily balance sheet,
my file 193290) be introduced into either of these offices, as an
assistance in balancing where several Companies1 tickets are handled?
or forms used in other City ticket offices ~ See my 204615 of Jany
26th last?
Yours truly,

In leolcing over Mr,   McDonnell1 &  recent  r#jpMPtt };-17ti2~83.
report 1488 "arch  30/20,   xt saary to  xin^rove
the method of handling funda paasi 1  these officue.
One of the wor*t  featurea to  contend with ia  the fact
that lie' ita are usually %mam**& ».9«JMtj la,

tf cash and accounta.
rda,   **&§ careful handling of o
I  2 Celiac*!  Bsq,§
cash, and the daily balancing of cash, haa been repeatedly impressed upon
these agent*} but you will note froa trie various reports sent you that we
invariably find  the condition af recounts more or less unsatisfactory*
During aeveral month* i a year, both offices should
have an available man to take charge of cash'and account a,   and all mmafc
transactions  should pass through ' and*  for the proper accounting of
same*    Anent and clerks all o§ to customer*,   and Hit accessary hook-
-ping,   and handling of cash,   ie r^ora or less of a secondary consideration.
Th* mtk o' ling %\ ra differ at tnese
offices: San Pranciec© will ff ahead with all necessary reservations; but
will  not,  as a rule, any  collection until paesonrer is  ready to take
up the tickets,.   Seceaai I       ,   r   tic   o^e are then issued out of our
office ttock,   and purchase from 8*>.By is  covered hy  Ffem 16S9,  It is
therefore only necessary   that       ra be taVen to properly report the sales,
and promptly  enter our transactions *JM * h our cash book
In m report #2004 I pointed uut  that #,1659 were being
bunched in the entries  In eaah b^ok,   and  that 1 had  then instructed that
the individual transaction should be detailed* r.r. idll  inform© me
that agent continues  to  lump thaaa  transactions  in his  records.  It  is
necessary  that agent should take  the necessary time to place these items
through the cash book at the time*   so that that record will be automatically
t up and  liable -orrcctly balance his cash each night,
Wi^x your ion I int and to  insist uron this  being
done in future -even if such irement interferes with prompt auention
to  cus toners  waiting at  the counoort? o
6 C.J.Black,&aq,,
Would also ■ it la  a cor,! aa practice for sub-
agents to issue cheques  covering sales made by  theam,   cheques  are also
captad from reliable business m#n purehaalng ticket*  from us.  It haa
been noticed that such cheques     . a aftaa BUft&e payable  to  our General Agent,
"\T,.-Taaon,  or to our Ticket Arent,   Thia permits  the cashing of such cheques
or uatng same  in settling with Ji , ':T\ ?  and no  doubtf   to nurse the
special hank account,  advantage  ia  taken cf the situation and these parties
not  requested to male* ch: le to C.PfKyt  It would make a cleaner
record if w* v/ould insist ly e#ttX*ment with the E.P., by
cheque,   for all tickets purchased  from v.era,  fhia would,, of course,   rasult
in more frequent calls  aa "Local  Treasurer for funds;   but  would overcome
the irregularities mentioned*,   I juld force tte  promptly ranking
hia, current receipts,  The additional cost would be the cost of telegram*
exchanged with Local  Treasurer,   and the  tax stanpe .onnoction v/ith funds
bo  transferred,
If agent would place o/s. amounts paid out for pullman
ticket*|  aa mentioned by . v-iell.    pre vould have a tine account of
cash actually in hand each day,  and that v/ould einpl^iy the hf&ancxng of
cash each night,  Our present system,   if properly carried out,  v?ill  take
car* of all the transactions  i zh we 11recti?  inter*at*A«

at all   tlmae,   -owover,  1 would 14k*  to BUgg**t  t. at that he keep a
separate hook covering r,ll  daily  receipts  and remittance*  in connection o
# 4 C.J.Black,  Bsq,f
with these outaide cop^ani^a,  such a record would he very convenient for
all concerned, Have you ae*y objection* to my i .ccordingly,?
The policy tfTake no
chances on your passenger changing rue mind41;  Los Angelea  ia  the turning
point  for the lurpe percentage ef tourlat* to California,   and agent collect*
the money in advance to  i) ;*ra  our  reut*«   Form 1659 is
not being used,   and v,e do not hnve a daily credit arrangement with the S,P.
or Pullman Co,   '"or . a  I hich agent could pay
the Bmmfm   for transportation purchased,   Iha cash accepted by agent,  and
various clerks,  ia used to buy ha required tickets,  and very little    of
it remain* with agent l- issued froa *i  ■ ana e«a Ltock,
The practice of giving *B ordinary   receipt to pa**anger
for funds deposited ! ngarou*,   nnd the practice of the
individual clinic holding such each,  u»1 a  tickets are purchased,  is
not a good one,  nihis will  frequently result in a serious amount of cash
being carried over m hy the  comblaad r-taff,   r,nd. tha agent does  not
have proper control over our ra libtlity undai titione.
In order to buy the tickets  required it is necessary to
"hold over cash with which to purcha**j   teut our cash book should certainly
show these daily transactions and a proper record ' hy the cleric
h- ndling the pa***ag*r,  Tf w* ante»-ot maka use of ?,1659 at this office we

could arrange a daily i h th* 8«JF§,  : a,  covering all
tickets purchased from them.   Funds  temporarily deposited with ua could then
Ire promptly remitted and the situation fully covered by the use of ¥,1659,
While the tie: at hooks used by clerks at this office
should fully record all their dealing* I am aatiafled that transaction*
closed out within the same day are not always passed through the records,
and there is too much epportunity  far a c I >nal usa of

'To $ tha business is  secured keen

My reort #1782.
It has been my custom to spend  two clayr here,   then go on to
Los Angeles and  return hero on my way north*  I  practically hove   to
wait    northbound  from morning until,   evening for train connections
and  1 utilise  that  time  in working in tho  office here  finishing up.
Whan I arrived here tho morning of the  22nd,   Friday,   I found agent haa
arranged   to leave  for Los Angelas  that night  to spend  Saturday and
Sunday with his family one of who© was  ill,     I  did not want him to
go  to Los Angeles ahead  of ma so A spent tho  22nd  in tho office here,
then went on to Los Angolas and returned  hero morning of 26 th.
^gent returned morning of 25th,
nt my cut off on the  22nd  agent checked  short  S2G,14.   I
found  a ore?it error of 012•50 in  ticketmdebit  June 12thf   on which  fiat;.,
his  daily balance book showed  him short "l11.16.   I found  o  debit error
Cl#00  In ticket sales  June  14th.   Thus his cash was  short at cut off
as pox surface balance f*14.G4.
I  did not get any further  then a check of  Juno  business
the first  day,   -hen I  returned  from Los  Angeles  I started a  chock of
outstandings.   They are  rulte heavy  this time  of year account of
tickets,   especially sleeping enr tickets,   being sent oat to
surrounding towns to Sea*  roe.  agents an! ?i   iureaus.
1 found a deplorable state of affairs  and  as  per memo attached   I have
had agent pay in over $300#00 account of it mtly should
not be  in outstandings,     Agent was ver; . this
business and  did not have a   proper grasp on it.  wh*£ i nto rod  his
ticket.debit in cash book he would   sometimes  carry as cash th3  slip
to  cover  ticket sent  to  outside  party,   for days before putting
it through cash book and  thus into onto tendings.   Than he would not
give  in  cash book sufficient details  of outstandings and  his  form
3S^k± 34§- did  not show sufficient detail for identification purposes.
Then when payment was received   sufficient 8etail was not entered
in cash book to describe  the  debit,   and  if he  thought he had  not yet
entered   the  item in outstandings he would make a   debit nnd  credit entry
at same  tine.
On  June  1st there were a  number of  credit entries  made  in cash book
to go  to outstandings,   no detail as  to ticketnumbers,   and were
apparently a  duplication of similar oratries made  hay  fist.
Then again many items are for same amounts  and   this added   to  the
confusion.
I  spent most of  one  day in Oakland and  Berkeley■trying  to verify
some  May Items.   I  found   two  still  due  from  Crabtrees,   Berkeley, received  cheque for one  from Crabtrees;  Oakland,   and got some
information concerning another from &.P.  Oakland.
The net result of my endeavor to check outstandings  is  that I would
not pass  the items listed  in statement attached  for reasons given
thereon,   and  had  agent pay In amounts.
It  is  quite possible,   considering the way this business was handled,
that amounts hove  got away from agent and   that there are amounts  still
owing for tickets for which no outstanding was created,   and  perhaps
ho may be able   to  reimburse hii..self later on.
I found  in comparing Hay Ticket Iieports and Balance Shoots
serious  discrepancies  as par statement attached.
*  habit 1'ifference  Locals    $442*05 and Pobit Mfferenee  Interline
£332#97*     This  I fofind   to be accounted  for by  the fact that Local
and   Interline sales  for Liay 31st were not entered  in eamh book and
not  tokento  debit on balance   sheet,
It would  appear  that clerk Boebe  finished  his  ticket reports  before
agent had  closed   out his  cash book and   got out his  balance  sheet.
Agent did  not have  sales  for hay 31st ooshbooked  and  Bnibe era tared
same  in pencil In order to see  if his  reports  balanced*
l?or some reason tho pencis  figures were erased and agent clos *d   out his
cash book without including the   debits referred   to, 9
His cash book therefore  showed  o  large  balance  Cae agent,   5305.56
It should have  ohoi?n balance   duo  Company f;579.41.
Agent appeared  to bo greatly surprised at tMs serious  discrepancy ant!
claims he woo not over in his cash this more   than |700.00 at that time.
Ke  makes a   daily balance  in a boo I  for tl pooo*   the present
book was started   June  11th and  agent said  he -o troy 3d   the  old
one  as ho-dl@ not think it valuable.
The dnly reason he can offer for ia   that be must have
lost or mislaid  some  big ohe Mlo.
he  does not *hir r of the  cler, Mm ant  ho  stoutly
denies  that ho hnc  taken any of thie money 1 I f,
Just recently be sold his house  receiving his zy in each so  that
he  did 4ot need cosh.
The amount  I hod him put up wae Mil".00 as par statement
attached-arid   this he  obtained  from his ban" Included   In
remittance ; June  29th.
4gent is tho  type who  takes life easily and  does not
apparently 'worry over troubles,  He  does not give  serious enough
attention tp his responsibilities as   regards  cash  and accounts,
^owev*? I really do not think he has   taken this missing money,
^here  is  this  to  be said  in regard   to conditions here
at  this, very busy season of tho year.  Agent does  not hove  the   time  to k
koef? careful  check on his accounting work and   cash.  He  is  ap and   down
all  the/ ti e between    counter and  his Seek.   I  think that daring the
busy assort a man should  be  used   solely on cash accounts  a: ->orts w
and not be used at the counter. It is not fair to agent to expect him t ,
handle cash and accounts under present conditions during the busy
season.
The accounting work is not properly ha ltd led now,   I have explained  re  thj
outstandings  .  Cash book is not closed  off properly but very sloppily
in noneII figures.   I notice  that  during the  quiet months of the year
agent loops  it in neat shape.
I  found  that agent had  issued a  few cheques  on the  special ace
account to send   to his wife. He  claim 3d  to have  put in the  cash  to
cover each ti a,   I  told himto  discontinue  the  practice.
I  do not know of any authority on file hero  to cover the
practice  of sending tickets  to  outside parties and  I have asked agent
to write Mr.Ogden for approval.  The latter granted approval  to
Los Angelas some years ago.
I find   that CA .S.S. Line   ticket sales are being token to
debit on balance sheet with CP.S.CLino  totals. Have  instructed
that they te shown separately,
I find   that in mahij cosh  statement F 42 ogont has   been
showing value  of tickets sent out *ties  ns  disbursements.
have  ins true tod  as   to how form should  be   I ;ip.
Agent has  quite  a  long distance   to walk to bank with his
deposits.   I have  asked  General Agent to  take  matter in hand  and  have
necessary protection afforded  ageat when going to bank.
1 am enclosing list of  tickets  on hond,   1 have  verified  steam;
ship  ticlrets  in a  of subagonts within r i out

You will fj ibit difference  Sfe .1.00.
471S #10867  is  reported  M39.10  should   be  #138.10,
Agent had  not put thro ick the  valaea  of 1" 16509
orders on u.PM   in Hay.  ^ 'acted   that this iroperly dona
in future.
Cash balance   due  Co.  B*3* Hay 7th .09 was brought forward
to B.3.  May 14th as 0962*72.
Agent buys Pullman tickets for his on?   holds  them
until  they call.   This may be  some days after.  I 3  carrying |367.23
worth in hie cash.   I  told him they should be   in out such
an amofint took up too much of his working fund.
On March 28th your A  223544 you instruct lit to remove
i! 35,00 from outstandings.   This was angainst  T.P.A.Gatje and was a  short
collection. F.R.Porry is still trying to collect from pa; ,;r.
Agent rem oved  the item but carried  a slip as cash .   I Instructed
amount be  paid  in and  Gatje  is  doing so,
JS 1 #48513 reported  Hay 7th at'Cl50.00.   %io was business

commission ^6*50 but ticket is reported at full value.   The  stub

receipt was taken for tho commission. Have told agent to o btoin same
and take up with ^r.Shearing for credit.
I have pointed out to agent the various weaknossos in the
manner of handling cash and accounts and instructed him to remedy same.
