1912. Excerpt: ... INTRODUCTION. The following index refers to the
various matters discussed in the cases. References are to pages
upon which begin the cases containing the subject referred to by
the index. When seeking a subject in the index, look first for your
particular subject. If not found under that heading, look to some
common heading or to some other particular heading where the
subject might be found. The matters are crossreferenced in such a
way that it is believed no difficulty will be found in finding what
is sought if it is covered in the decisions. In addition to
decisions of the commission, this hook contains three Supreme Court
decisions, which, because of their importance, have been included
and indexed along with the other decisions in the book. They are:
III. C. R. R. v. St. L. & N. E. R. R., p. 129, upon the power
of the commission as to location of crossings, etc., under the Act
of 1889; Chi. & Southern Traction Co. v. 7. C. Ry. Co., p. 203,
regarding crossings in cities and villages and upon the
constitutionality of the Act of July 1, 1889; People v. St. L., A.
& Terre Haute Ry., p. 433, pertaining to train service. A
decision often referred to in the index, but for lack of space not
reported, is that of The People v. C., I. & L. Ry. Co., 223
Ill., 581, in which it was held that all railroads doing business
in this State, without reference to the state from which they
derive their charters and wholly regardless of whether they are
engaged in interstate or intrastate commerce, must report to the
Railroad and Warehouse Commission as required by law; and if they
fail to do so, can be compelled to perform such, duty by mandamus.
