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. , Mrt. .Chris LossiJ Columbus, Neb., Aug. 4.
