Minneapolis Eastern Ry. Co. v. Minnesota, 134 U.S. 467 (1890)
Minneapolis Eastern Railway Company v. Minnesota
Argued January 13-14, 1890
Decided March 24, 1890
134 U.S. 467
The case of Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Co. v. Minnesota, ante, 134 U. S. 418, affirmed on substantially the same state of facts.
The statutory provisions existing in the present case as to the fixing by the railroad company of reasonable charges for the transportation of property, did not constitute such a contract with it, as to deprive the legislature of its power to regulate those charges.
This was argued with Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Co. v. Minnesota, ante, 134 U. S. 418, the two causes presenting substantially the same questions. The case is stated in the opinion.
