ticket over its own road and the road of another railroad company, and the

It seems that a railroad company in
one state which sells a through ticket to
a point in a different state, over a speci-
fied route, by an arrangement with the
other railroad companies whose lines
make up the route in the other states, is
bound to carry the passenger and his
baggage safely to such place of destina-
tion, and is liable for any injury to his
person or baggage occurring on any of
the lines of the connecting roads. Can-
dee V. Pennsylvania R. Co., 21 Wis. 582,
94 Am. Dec. 566.

Plaintiff applied to an agent in the
ticket office at the station at W., on de-
fendant's road, for a ticket to E., on the
U. P. Railroad, a number of miles east
of the eastern terminus of defendant's
road, which was operated by the U. P.
Railroad, and by such agent was fur-
nished a single local ticket from W. to
E. By direction of the agents in charge
of the train she took her seat in the car,
in which she was carried to the junction
of the two roads, and on to E., without
change. At E. plaintifif was injured,
while alighting from the train, by the
negligence of those in charge of the train.
Held, that defendant was liable under
Comp. St. c. 72, art. 1, § 3, making every
railroad company liable for personal in-
juries to passengers while lieing trans-
ported over its road, unless caused by
the criminal negligence of the passengers
or violation of some express rule actu-
ally brought to their notice. ChoUette v.
Omaha, etc., R. Co., 26 Neb. 159, 41 N.

But in Tennessee it has been held that
where a passenger purcliases tickets of
an agent of a railroad company for car-
riajjc over the railroa<l line and a con-
necting stcambriat line, the passenger can
not sue* the railroad cf)ini)any for inju-
ries occurring on the steanil)oat, unless
he can show a |)artner«hi)> between the
railroad and stcanil)oat lines, .\ashville,



etc.. R. Co. V. Sprayberry, 67 Tenn. (8
Baxt.) 341, 35 Am. Rep. 705.

But in this same state it has been held
that where two lines of a stage route
were owned by different persons, be-
tween whom there was an arrangement
that passengers at either end might pur-
chase of their respective agents through
tickets which would entitle them to trans-
portation to the other end of the route,
a passenger so purchasing through
tickets, who is hindered or detained in
his journey by the fault of the owners of
the connecting line, may recover dam-
ages from the party of whom such tickets
were purchased; and his right in this re-
spect is in no way impaired by his pre-
vious knowledge of such distinct owner-
ship and the arrangement between said
owners. Carter v. Peck, 36 Tenn. (4
Sneed) 203. 67 Am. Dec. 604.

Facts not proving a special contract to
carry beyond carrier's line. — The de-
fendants, at the time specified in the dec-
laration, were running their cars, as com-
mon carriers, from N. H. to P., five miles
short of C.. their liability ending at P.,
except as resulting from stage carriage
beyond P. They had given public no-
tice, by advertisement in the newspapers,
that the cars on their road from N. H.
would arrive at P., and stages would
leave P. for C. at the time specified in
such notice. The plaintifif bought of the
defendants a ticket for the fare from N.
H. to C. The injury complained of hap-
pened in the stage between P. and C.
The defendants did not own or control
the stage, nor participate in the profits
of its use. In an action founded on a
special contract to carry the plaintilT
safely from N. H. to C, by railroad and
stage, it was held that the advertisement
im])lied no liability of the defendants Uc-
yond the line of their road, and the
ticket showed only the receipt of so much
money paid by the plaintiff, which was
all that he was to pay previous to his ar-
rival at C. and, consequently, the under-
taking alleged was not proved; therefore,
a vcrdi'-t for the plaintiff was set 'iside
as against the evidence. Hood t. New

§§ 3686-3689 carriers. 3322

•arrier contracts for throug-h transportation over the lines of connecting carriers
:n a car furnished by such initial carrier, it is liable for injuries to passengers
Dccasioned by its furnishing a car which is not capable of being made comfort-
ably warm, without regard to whether the injuries occur on its own line or on
;he line of a connecting carrier.^s Where a passenger train passes from one road
to another, and the original company has assumed the liability for the safe car-
riage of passengers beyond its own line, such liability is not affected by the fact
that on the connecting road the general control over the train is exercised by the
officers of that road, who become pro hac vice those of the company which con-
tracted to transport safely over that road beyond its own line.^^

§ 3687. Effect of Sale of Coupon Ticket. — The sale by a railroad company
:>f a coupon ticket for transportation of a passenger over its own and a connect-
ing line, does not import an undertaking on the part of the company to be re-
5ponsible for the safety of the passenger beyond its own line,*^^ qj- render it liable
to him for an injury^ received upon the connecting road.*^^ But a company selling
5uch a ticket may by contract make itself responsible for the safe carriage of the
passenger over the entire route covered by the ticket.'^^

§ 3688. Liability for Accident Happening on a Special Excursion
Train. — A railroad company which advertises an excursion over its road on a
day named, by special train, to a certain city, and return, and does not in such
advertisements limit its responsibility for the excursion from first to last, but
treats the city as one of the stations of its road in the time-table for the special
train, and sells the excursion tickets over its own and a terminal association's
line, to which the entire train, except the engine, is transferred, for the purpose
of being drawn into and out of the city, is responsible for an accident resulting
fiom an overcrowded condition of the cars, though such accident happen on the
terminal association's line.*'^

§ 3689. Liability for Assault by Employee of a Connecting Carrier.—

Where a railroad company which has sold a ticket for a continuous passage over
connecting lines fails to notify the gatekeeper of a connecting line to permit the
passenger to ride on a later train than the one called for by the ticket, or to cor-
rect the passenger's ticket, the passenger having failed to make connections, due
lo the contracting company's fault, it is liable for an assault by the gatekeeper
made on the passenger to prevent his taking such later train.*'* But the conductor
of a railroad train has no authority to bind the company, by allowing a stop-over,
so as to make the company liable, where a connecting road ejected the passenger
because the ticket provided for a continuous trip on the two roads.'^^

58. Liability for injuries occasioned by connecting roads of different corpora-
condition of car furnished by initial car- tions, does not render the selling corpo-
rier. — Missouri, etc., R. Co. v. Harrison, ration liable to the purchaser for an in-

3323 RIGHTS, DUTIES AND LIABILITIES. § 3690

§ 3690. Effect of Agreements between Connecting Carriers and Joint
Liability. — Connecting carriers may by contract between tbem render themselves
jointly liable for injuries to passengers occurring on either line.*^*^ If several
connecting carriers, by agreement among themselves, appoint a common agent at
each end of the route to receive the fares and give through tickets, this does not
of itself constitute them partners as to passengers so as to render each one liable
for personal injuries occurring upon any portion of the line.^''' The sale of a
through ticket over the route formed by the connecting lines of several railroad
companies, and the checking of baggage to the end of the route, without other
evidence of the relations between the companies, or the basis upon which through
business is done by them, fails to show such a community of interest as will
make them partners inter sese, or as to third persons ; nor will such action alone
make the last carrier liable for the negligence of the contracting carrier, or of
any other carrier in the combination.*^ ^ But where a railroad company operating
a connecting line agrees with the initial carrier that a ticket issued by the latter
shall entitle the purchaser to carriage over both roads, the rights of the passen-
ger and the liabilities of the connecting line for personal injuries to him are the
same as if the ticket had been bought at a station on its own line to any other
station thereon. '^'^ An agreement betv/een railroad corporations operating con-
necting lines as to the division of through-ticket money and as to the sale of
through tickets, does not render the selling corporation liable to the purchaser
for an injury received upon a connecting road.'^^ Where a railroad company and
an omnibus driver enter into an agreement for the transportation by the latter
cf passengers from the station, the company selling a ticket for the purpose, the
company is not liable to a passenger on the omnibus for an injury caused by
the driver's negligence.'^ ^
