COBB'S COUPON TICKETS.
TO THK EDITOB. Sib, —Regarding the above I should like to ask Mr Young, through you, if he thinks he is acting right in not providing for the coupon tickets be has idsued to the public.
I might inform your readers that I know (or certain that there are a large number oi those coupons still held on which there are unused numbers. My own case I will state, and I can, I think, fairly call it " obtaining money under false pretences," or, more plainly, "a swindle." It is as follows: One evening last week I travelled on one of the Palace cars; the conductor of same asked me to take a 5s ticket, available till the end of October. I refused, fortunately. He then requested me to have "twelve rides for a sixpence" ticket, which I did. The following morning Cobb's.cars were advertised for sale by auction, and on the next day they were withdrawn from running. My ride, therefore, from Albany street to Octagon cost me sixpence. It is not the matter of the few pence that caused me to pen these lines, but to make thoroughly public tho way in which Mr Young has treated his customers in ignoring the vouchers which he knows they hold, and which he issued to them.—l am, ct3., Coupon Holder. Dunedin, October 12.
