! 1 VOL. T. II A YTI, MISSOURI THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1909. NO. 15. If? ft If ? 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 opinion: 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.
