Railroad Cannot
Force Wires Raised
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Aug. 4 (Special.) The
right of a railroad company to force
a telephone or electric light company
to raise its wires over crossings of
the road when the former had prior
rights, has been declared against the
railway companies by the State Rail
way commission, in a controversy be
tween the Northwestern Railroad
company and the electric light com
pany at Bristow, owned by the city .
It appears that the city council g tve
the railroad company the right to run
a spur through its streets. After the
spur was run the railway company
complained that the wires of the, city
electric plant were not strung, high
enough to meet the law and demanded
that the same be raised.
The city appealed to the commis
sion, which declares that where the
rajls of the company were l:iid after
the wire company had strung its
wires that the expense of raising the
wires must be born by the railway
company. ,
