Chicago, M. & St.P. Ry. Co. v. United States, 198 U.S. 385 (1905)

Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway Company v. United States

No. 198

Submitted April 6, 1905

Decided May 15, 1905

198 U.S. 385


The Postmaster General is given the power to arrange the railway routes upon which the mail is to be carried, and to adjust and readjust compensations, subject only to limitation of ascertaining the rate by average weight of mails.

There is nothing in § 4002, Rev.Stat., which requires the abrogation of a prior contract when an extension is made beyond the terminal of an established route or which precludes provision for the extension alone. While a contract may not be forced upon railway, it may accept and become bound by the action of the Post office Department.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
