Shelbyville, July 16. -- Figuratively, th« Big Four Railroad company is "between the devil and the «ea" In Its relations with the city of Shelbyville and ihe breweries. The railroad company's predicament has Its rise in a little ordinance, couched In lesa! phraseology and such plain English that "he who runs may read," which was adopted by the city council at the regular monthly meeting of that body on the 4th of May. 1914. This ordinance makes It "unlawful for any express company, railroad company or other common carrier or for any person to bring Into or to deliver to any person within the city of Shelbyville any Intoxicating liquors," and provides a penalty of ?50 for every violation of this section. Naturally, this Interfered somewhat with the railroad company's freight business, and not desiring to ba made defendant in prosecutions bv the city of Shelbyville, the order went out to agents and trainmen not to accept shipments of liquor designed lor delivery in this city. This order applied both to intra and Interstate shipments. But now the company is getting a prod from the other side, for the breweries, deprived of the customary avenue through which they placed their goods in the hands of their Shelbyville customers, are threatening the railroad companv with prosecution for refusing to accept shipments for this city. The Bis Four company has communicated with local legal representatives, asking for a copy oE the ordinance In question and an opinion as to its validity, in an effort to determine whose behest it would better obey--the city's or the brewers.' If the ordinance Is constitutional and sound, the company hae a valid defense in any .prosecution that might be started by the breweries; tut if it is not, the company would have no legal defense and would be liable for damages in refusing to handle the liquor shipments billed to this point.
