         ARGUMENT

                       orl

SIMON STERNE, Esq.,

        Delivered at Albany, March 7th, 1878,
                   BIEFORE THE
Committee on Railroads, an  Bill to create a Board of Railroad Con-
         mimsioners, and to Regulate their Powers.


Mr. COairnian and Gentlemen of the Committee
  I had hoped that Mr. Gilbert would have relieved
me of the necessity to explain in detail, the provisions
of this bill. He introduced it. He was the chairman
of the Railroad Committee who heard last year the
arguments upon this subject, and became, as 1 be-
lieve, so thoroughly persuaded of the necessity for
the appointment of a commission such as is con-
templated to be raised by this Act, that he this year
introduced a bill, which is in many particulars an
improvement on the one of last year, and of the
passage of which I believe him to be an earnest and
intelligent advocate.
I This bill provides that there shall be a Board of
Railroad Commissioners for the State of New York,
to be composed of three persons, to be appointed
by the Governor respectively for two, three, and four
years, who shall have power to appoint their clerk
and assistants, which Commissioners shall receive
each a salary of $7,500 a year.
