. JUDGE ROBINSON AND RAILROAD PASSES
Do you remember that Judge Hugh Robinson, of the auto
speed cotlrt, was touched by a pickpocket for his pocketbook last
v Friday night?
Do you remember that Judge Robinson was real peeved about
'this, because he had notes for $2,000 in the pocketbook?
And do you remember that Judge Robinson was at the same
time mighty glad that the careless pickpocket had overlooked his
small change amounting to $300 or so, which he carried in another
You do! Well, Judge Robinson has got his pocketbook back.
And the amount of those notes iii the pocketbook have gone up.
Judge Robinson evidently forgot about some of them, for when he
looked them over today, he found they totalled about $3,000.
You will agree that it was very careless of Judge Robinson not
to remember better the amount of the notes in his pocketbook. Notes
But leaving the question of those notes aside, the notes were
not the only things in that pocketbook. By no means. There also
jwere two pieces of parchment which Judge Robinson failed to men
tion when he reported the loss of the pocketbook.
One was an annual pass on the Santa Fe railroad, arid the other
was an annual pass on the Illinois Central railroad.
Judge Robinson said he was very glad to get his railroad passes
"I might have missed them," he said, "if they had nofbeen re
turned. They are very handy, you know."
Railroad passes are very handy, as everyone, must agree. The
two in Judge Robinson's pocketbook also show that our well-known
railroads have a great consideration for Judge Robinson or else for
the office Judge Robinson holds.
Theer is no law against a municipal judge holding passes over
the railroads within the state of Illinois.
