A Mr. Robinson, Mr. Robinson of
Shelby, lias prcuaied a beautiful little
bill; a perfect enmeo, on oxquisite
work of legislaliyo art, complete in
all its nnrls. Some presumptions
critic has atatoil that it resembled the
Iowa law. but this is a baso slnmli'r;
that Iowa law was not nonrly so well
finished, while thiB is so complete in
itself that if it tea.n be put into opera
tion it will finish railroad building in
Kentucky, and that of course is the
end had aim of all railroad legislation.
Mr. Robinson considora ami pro
poses to regulate all railroad measures,
clsssify all freights aud prescribe pnp
pr ear per nulc for all Iretglit rates.
Glorious Robirssou!' Ho. while others
wora assortiuE the thines could not bo
dono. did it: here is the whole casein
a nutshell. '.No otto know how simple
tho thing, was until Robiuson'i bill
was given to the public. Robinson;
he ia a born railroad statesman.
There is only one Omission iu his bill
and that is a provision compelling the
railroads to build a switch to the bacn
of evorv farmor in -Tshelby comity
We houe this mistake will be correct
ed, before the bill is passed. Shelby
