    Sec. 2. Every railroad conductor, while on duty, is hereby authorized and empowered to exercise in any county of this state, for the purpose of enforcing the provisions of this act, all the common law and statutory powers conferred upon sheriffs and it is hereby made the duty of all such conductors to enforce the preceding section of this act, and to arrest without process any person who violates any provision thereof, and in so doing they shall be held to be acting for the state and not as employees of the company. Any person or persons so arrested shall be delivered by such conductor to some judge, sheriff or police officer at some station or place within the county in which the offense was committed, for trial, according to law. Provided, that if the car on which such arrest is made does not stop within the county within which such offense was committed, then such conductor shall deliver the person so arrested to some sheriff or police officer of the county wherein such car shall first stop after such arrest, who shall deliver the person so arrested to some judge of the county in which the offense was committed, for trial.
