It was sent for her beticlit. Tito plain?
tiff claimed damages for the mental
anguish caused her by the delay In
the delivery of the message. Tb.? I iwer
court held that she could not recover
fqy such suffering and gave lo r judg?
ment for 25 cut::, the cosl of the t le
grdm, whereupon she appealed.
The court says:
This directly presents the quest.on
whether the plaintiff can recover dam?
ages for mental anguish caused by the
negligence of the defendant in failing
to promptly deliver a telegram sent
through an agent, when the name ol
the plaintiff was not signed to th" tole
gram, ami when the fact that it was
pent for her was not disclosed to the
defendant at the lime the message was '
Kent, nor were her relations with the
addressee, then communicated to the
company. We Intended to decide this
question at the first hearing, and
thought we had done so. at least by
direct Inference, but, It seems, not ex?
plicitly enough to be understood. To
prevent any further misconstruction,we
my, plainly, she can recover, if other?
wise entitled. In other words, the fail?
ure to give such information was no bar
to the action, or to the recovery of
substantial damages, in Lyne v. Tele?
graph Co.. 1211 N. C. 129, it was held
that, where a telegram relates to s ek
ness oi- death, It Is not necessary to dis?
close to the company the relation of
the parties, as there is n common sense
suggestion that it Is im nor tan t. The
same rule applies here. The telegram
in question state.I that Mr. fashion had ;
been killed while at work, and on its
face suggested that It was of unusual
importance to somebody. The d. fen
dant know that somewhere there was a j
vnrnnt chair: that some one the lonely
deal hwatch was keeping. Who or
where it mattered not to the def ndant,
as It had no more right to wrong one
person lhan another.
The able counsel for the defi ndant
relies upon Dudley v. Uaxcndalc, y
This rule Ik almost universally fol?
lowed as to all ordinary 'business trans?
actions, 'hut can it have any posslbj ?
application to the case at bar'.' We
think not. What probable damagi
could Mrs. Cashlon possibly have be d
in contemplation, when, in tie- first
hour of her bereavement, she sen) a
telegram announcing the sudden and
violent death of her husband? Surely;
SllO could unit be expected to dictate
such a telegram with the cool delibera?
tion with which a man would contract
for the shipment of a mill shaft; nor
can her mental anguish be measured
by the rule laid down In determining
the lost profits of Hadley's mill. We
must submit that damages for men?
tal anguish are somewhat anomalous,
and the extreme dlfllculty of their ad?
measurement by any ordinary rule of
law has led many jurisdictions to re?
ject the doctrine. We have found it
established In this State, and feel com?
pelled to uphold it. on ithe highest prin?
ciples of public policy and Of private
right, and must give it such a reason?
able construction as will enforce Its
One other principle must lie kept in
view: A telegraph company is in the
nature of a common carrier, claim?
ing and exercising the right or con?
demnation, which can be done only for
r public purpose, it is thereby affected
with a public use. It owes certain du?
ties to the public.which are not d pend?
ent upon a personal contract, but which
are Imposed by operation of law. A
simple contract Is an agreement be?
tween two parties.?a drawing together
of two minds to a common intent.?
and must be voluntary as well as mu?
tual. Whenever a man. at a proper
time and place presents a telegram to
the company for transmlttal, and at the
same time tenders the proper fee, the
company Is bound to receive, trans?
mit, and deliver it with reasonable care
and diligence; It cannot refuse to re?
ceive it; and, while it may protect it?
self by reasonable regulations, it cannot
Insist upon a prsonal contract contrary
to its usual custom or to public policy.
The failure of the telegraph company
to promptly deliver a telegram "is not
a mere breach of contract, but a fail?
ure to perform a duty which rests upon
It as the servant of the people," While
reaffirming the doctrine, we must again
earnestly caution Juries against Its
abuse. The defendatU Is in no way re?
sponsible for the anguish suffered by
the plaintiff for the loss of her hus?
band. All that can possibly be charged
to It Is the Injury resulting from a
negligent failure to deliver 'the tele?
gram; and the Jury, in considering this
matter, should carefully guard against
the sympathy they would naturally
feel for the widow and orphan child.

Supreme Court of Louisiana.
February ti. lv.<'j.
A RAILROAD 'COMPANY CANNOT
UK FORCED Tu ESTABLISH A
DEPOT AT A PARTICULAR PLACE
UNLESS SUCH DUTY HAS BEEN
IMPOSED UPON IT BY OENERAL
LAWS, OR BY* ITS CHARTER.
This was a petition for a mandamus
to compel tho railroad company to es?
tablish a depot .'t the town of Lees
vllle. Tiio petitioners were citizens of
iii..I town, merchants, &c.< and one of
them had given (he right of way for the
ru 11 road through the town, nnd they
say they were all led to believe that
the mad would keep a proper depot
there. Tho rallro id company for six
months stopped Us trains and received
and delivered passengers and freight at
a switch about tho center of the town,
but afterwards Hie company hough;
some land adjacent to the town, hut in
a swamp, ami built a depot thereon
whl< h was Inaci i ssiblc to the public on
ni count of marshy roads and quick?
sands under part of them. The enrn
, pnhy had plotted the land Into lots and
petitioners alleged Hie location of the
l depot tie. re was for the purpose of sell
! ing the lots. .V'. The lower court re

The court says:
A:; matters stand the only question
before us is whether, as a mailer of

through mandamus, to force the iie
fondant to establish a. di pot at Loes
villc. Tlx- Supreme '?. ort of the United
stntra wns called upon to consider ibis
question in Railroad Co. v. Washington
Ter. 142 U. S. VS.'. under a slate of facts
very similar to those alleged by the
plaintiffs in their petition. In discussing
the question the Supreme Court of the
United States declared that "a writ of
mandamus to compel a railroad cor?
poration to d., a particular act in con?
struct;:):.' Its rea l or buildings, or in
running i's train.-, can l>> Issued only

structures, having regard to the pub
I lie convenience, as weil as its own po
, cunlnry Interests, can be controlled by
the courts by w rit of mandamus, would
be Inconsistent with many decisions of
hieb authority in analogous cases."
The court quoted approvingly from
People v. New York L. E. ?- w. R. Co.,
104 N. Y. .>-<*, In which tho court re?
fused to grant a mandamus to compel
a railroad Corporation to construct and
i maintain a stnCon - at a village con
' talnlng 1,200 Inhabitants. The court
said: "As the duty sough; to he Im?
posed upon tho defendant is not a spe?
cific duty Imposed by statute, the court
Cannot enforce its performance by man?
ch ums. it cannot compel tlie erection of
n station house, nor the enlargement of
one. No doubt, as the respondent urges,
the court may by mandamus also act
In certain case.-: affecting corporate
matters, but only where the duty con?
cerned Is Bpecllic, and plainly imposed
upon tli" corporation * ?."
The declsli ha in Railroad Co. v.

York L. E. & W. R. Co. were. In our
opinion, based upon correct principles,
which should and must control the
present case. Affirmed.
