CANT ABANDON ROADS
Attorney General .Major husrendeied
an opinion in which lie holds that rail
road companies cannot abanilon any
lnit of thu line owned by them xxith
oul forfeltlnjrthe charter ofthenentiie
line, and arcalso subject topiosocutions
for violations of the Hlato laws.
'J'Iuh iiicstion came up over the
FriBuo ruiboad abandoning its line be
tween Wurdell and Tullipoomi, two
stations on tbu road running noith
from l'ascola. Tbeioad involved is
11 miles long.
Tbe attorney Kenerul said in bis
Tho great wuigbt of modern autboii-
ty, and paitieulurly in Missouri, is to
tl'0 ell'eet that a railroad company in
accepting a franchise must construct
same in toto, anil such authoiity does
not authorize the coustiuctiou of a
purl only. After its construction, the
duty then is placed on the mil mud com
pany to commence operating same,
and if the operation of the entire lines
authorized by thefianchise pioves un
lemuneiative, or the company beeomus
insolvent, it can lawfullv abandon the
entiic line covered by its franchise.
it ti t if the operation of one part
proves umcmunei'utive and the opei
ation of the residue is profitub e, so tbe
whole, when taken together, is remuner
ative, the (iimpany cannot abandon the
unprofitable part and operatethe profit
able residue For the company to do
this would he to absume a new fran
chise not granted them and ouster or
mandamus proceedings would lie.
We, therefore, conclude that this
portion being a pait of the lines now
operated and covered by one franchise
the company cannot lawfully abandon
same. ICeimett Democrat.
