Central Stockyards Company v. Louisville
& Nashville Railway Company
Argued January 28-29, 1904
Decided February 23, 1904
192 U.S. 568
Neither the Act of Congress of February 4, 1887, c.104, 24 Stat. 379, nor section 213 or other provisions in the Constitution of the State of Kentucky imposes an obligation upon a railroad having its own stockyards in Louisville under a lease from a stockyard company, to accept livestock from other states for delivery at the stockyards of another railroad in the same city and neighborhood, although there is a physical connection between the two roads.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
