Street Railway Companies. 337. Telegraph and Telephone Companies. Sec. 323. In General. Electric companies are subject to reasonable regulation by the state and its municipal divisions.' There are two grounds on which regulation may be justified. In the first place, every corporation is subject to such regulation as comes within the police powers of the state or of municipal corporations. The police power authorizes the imposition of such requirements which tend to protect the health and safety of the inhabitants. In this class, regulations may be sustained which pertain to the location of poles and wires and the guarding of travelers from such appliances. The other theory upon which regulations may be sustained is the public nature of the electric companies. As stated in another chapter electric companies are quasi-public. Their public nature renders them subject to certain reasonable regulations, such as those fixing reasonable rates for its service. 1. United States.---Old Colony T. Co. v. City of Omaha, 230 U.
