There Is a genera 1 impression that
the defeat of the House railroad bill
ended railroad legislation for this ses
sion ot the Missouri legislature. The
faat appears that the House bill could
never have passed the Senate, and it is
olaimed that the Senate bill being a
much better one than that defeated It
will go through the House. Therefore
those who are shoutlug over the defeat
of the House bill had better wait
awhile until they get out of the woods.
