100.05 Statutory Duty and Power of Railroad Conductor to Arrest for Drinking or Intoxication There was in force in the State of Illinois at the time of the occurrence in question a certain statute which provided that any person who shall drink any intoxicating liquor, or who shall be intoxicated in or upon any railroad car in use for the transportation of passengers, or in or about any railroad station or platform, shall be subject to arrest and conviction and any railroad conductor while on duty is authorized and empowered, for the purposes of enforcing this statute, to exercise all the powers conferred upon sheriffs. It is the duty of conductors to enforce this statute and to arrest without process any person who violates the statute and in so doing the railroad conductor shall be held to be acting for the State of Illinois and not as the employee of the railroad.
