LOUISVILLE & NASHVILLE RAILROAD Co., Defendant.

This complaint alleged that defendant refused to furnish bill on transport cars of coal from mines upon the Knoxville Division of defendant's road consigned to shippers at Danville, Ky., Danville being a point upon the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway, four miles north of Junction City. As a result of this refusal, dealers at Danville were compelled to consign cars to Shelby City and haul their coal by wagon to Danville, at great inconvenience. While the Commission had no power to order the service, yet it felt that it was its duty, as has always been its policy, to intercede when the complaint is considered meritorious, even where it had no real authority. After several conferences with officials of the Louisville & Nashville and Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway Companies, the matter was amicably adjusted, the complainant, at the request of the Commission, agreeing to dismiss a civil action against the defendant growing out of the matter complained of, and the defendant ordered cars delivered to Danville and other shippers of coal upon the line of the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway, thus giving the service desired.
