Important Decision Against the Corpora tion Commission. 'Some time ago the Corporation Commission ordered the Coast Line Railroad to make connection with the Southern at Selma. The Coast Line excepted to the order and appealed in triA Rimerior CmiTt. The case was recently heard in Wake Superior Court before Judge Brown. It was agreed that the Coast Line could not make the connection with its pres ent train service, but the question was submitted to a jury whether it was practicable for the Coast Line to put on an extra train to make the connection and the iury decided this should be done. Then the attorneys argued the matter before Judge Brown, asking that the verdict of the jury be set aside and contending that the Commission had no authority to order a railroad to put on an extra train. Judge Brown declined to set aside the verdict but he has decided that the Corporation Commission has no power under the act of the Gen eral Assembly to compel the opera tion of an additional train for the purpose of connecting with another railroad's train, and that the General Assembly has no power itself to com pel the defendant to operate such a tram at a loss, the fact being admit ted that the defendant was now op erating four trains 'daily each way , between Rocky Mount and Selma. In rendering the judgment revers ing the order of the Commission and taxing them with the costs, Judge Brown says he is of the opinion that section 1,957 of The Code gives to the railroads the right to regulate the time and manner in which pas sengers and property shall be trans ported, subject to legislative direc tions: that each railroad company shall run at least one train each way every week day (Coast Line operates four), and tljat the Commission ex hausted its power when it investigat ed the connections exising at Selma. iCfcBACH PIANO Write for Catalogue andPrlces.
