If any person, corporation or association supplied with steam by any such corporation, shall neglect or refuse to pay the rent or remuneration for such steam, or for the meter, device, pipes, fittings or appliances, furnished by such corporation it may thereupon prevent the steam from entering the premises of such person, persons, corporation or association. If a person is liable to a forfeiture, or to fine or imprisonment, for a wrong or offense committed against the corporation, its agents, or property for which such forfeiture, fine or penalty is imposed by law, such corporation may also prevent the steam from entering the premises of the person so liable, or if such person be an officer or agent of any corporation or association, prevent the steam from entering the premises of such corporation or association.
