THE FTTTSBtniG DISPATCH, FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 18, 1892.
LONG HAUL TARIFFS.
Knotty Points in the Inter-State
Commerce Law Made Plain by
A DECISION BY GENERAL VEAZEI.
The Eights of Carriers to Make Joint Fate
SEVERAL SOUTHERN CASES SETTLED
"Washetgtox, Kot. 17. The Inter-State
Commerce Commission to-day in an opinion
by Commissioner Veazey announced its de
cision in the cases brought by the Georgia
.Railroad Commission against the Cincin
nati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific Eaii
ay Company, the Louisville and Nash
ville Railway Company and other railroad
and steamship lines, involving rates for
longer and shorter hauls from Cincinnati
and other Ohio river points, and from New
York and other North Atlantic ports to
points in southern territory. The main
points decided are as follows:
First The fact of a receivership for a de
fendant carrier subsequent to complaint
should not Interfere with the progress of a
proceeding brought merely for the purpose
or railway regulation.
Second The phrase "common control,
management or arrangoment forcontinuous
carriage or shipment," in(the first section of
the act to regulate commerce, was intended
to cover all inter-State traffic carried
through over all rail or part water and part
rail lines. The receipt successively by two
or more carriers for transportation of traffic
shipped under through bills for continuous
carriage over their lines is assent to a com
mon arrangement for such continuous car
riage or shipment, and provious formal ar
rangement between them is not necessary
to bring such transportation under the
terms ot tbe law.
The Total Bate Over Combined lines.
Third Tbe total rate for through car
riage over two or more lines, whether made
by the addition of established locals, or of
through and local rates, or upon a less pro
portionate basts. Is th- through rate that is
subject to scrutiny by tho regulating
authority. How the rate Is made is only ma
terial as bearing upon the legality of the ag
gregate charge, and how any reduction may
uc accompanied, is a matter lor tne carriers
to determine among themselves.
Fourth The second, third and fourth sec
tions of the act to regulato commerce are
compared with provisions In English stat
utes. English decisions aro examined, and
the frequent citation of such decisions to In
fluence cases brought under greatly dissimi
lar statutory provisions In this country,
without legard to differences In fact, time,
extent ot country and methods of trade and
transportation, are considered and criti
cised. rifth The fourth section of the act to
regulate commerce is construed anil the
principles laid down in repetitions of Louis
ville and Nushville Railroad Company,l,Ints.
Cotn.ltep.,278; 1, I.C.C. Eep., 31, are reaffirmed
except tho ruling tbeiein whereby cur
riers were permitted to judge forlhemselves
In the flist Instance ot what constitutes
"rare and peculiar competition between
railroads wntch are subject to tbe statute
when a strict application of the general rule
of the statute would be destructive of legiti
mate competition," which is overrufcd.
Competition Is Not to Be Considered.
Sixli The competition of carriers subject
to tbe act to regulate commerce does not
create circumstances and conditions which
the carriers can take into account in de
termining for themselves in the first in
stance whether they are justified under the
fourth section in charging nioie for shorter
than for longer distances over their lines.
Soventh The competition of markets on
different lines for the sale of commodities
at a given point served bv both lines does
not create circumstances and conditions
which the carriers can take Into account In
determinim- for themselves In the first
instance whether they are Justified under
the first section in charging more for shorter
than for longer distances over their lines.
To determine the lorco and effect of such
competition involves consideration of com
mercial questions peculiar to the business
or shippers, such as advantage of business
location, comparative economy of produc
tion, comparative qualitv and market value
of commodities, all or which are entirely
disconnected from circumstances and con
ditions under which transDortation is con
ducted. Carriers cannot create abnormal
situations by making rates which equalize
advantages at I disadvantages or localities
and thereupon claim justification for
greater charges on shorter hauls on the
ground that the lesser long haul charge,
which accomplish such equalization, are
necessary to secure increase in traffic over
Where Carriers Have Discretionary Towers.
Eighth The carrier has the right to judge
In the first instance whether it is Justified
In making the greater charge for the shorter
distance under the fourth section in all
cases where the circumstances and condi
tions arise wholly upon Its own lino or
through competition for the same traffic
with carriers not subject to regulation un
der the act to regulate commcice. In other
cases under the fourth section the circum
stances and conditions are not pre
sumptively dissimilar and carriers must not
charge less lor the longer distance except
upon the order of this commission.
. Ninth 'When . carrier, on complaint un
der the fourth section, aveis substantial
dissimilarity In circumstances and con
ditions as justifying Its greater charge lor
shorter hauls, it is concluded by Its plead
ing, and must affirmatively show, that the
clicunistances and conditions of which it Is
entitled to judge In the first instance are, in
fact, substantially dissimilar; bnt upon an
application for relief under the fourth sec
tion the carrier is not limited by
such a rule of evidence, and may present
to tbe commission every material reason for
an order in Its favor. There seems to bo no
limitation upon the power of the commis
sion to grant relief under that proviso,
when, after investigation, the commission
Is satisfied that the Interests or commerce
and common fairness to the carrier lequire
that an exception be made.
Tenth The complaints in cases No. 321
and Ko. 323 ate dismissed. In cases Nos.
311,315,310.317 and 323 the defenaants are
ordered to cease and desist trom charging
more to shorter than to longer distance
points mentioned in the complaints, or file
applications for relief under the provision
clause of the fourth section, and show cause
thereon within a time specified.

Madrid, Not. 17. A sad story of the
fatal Interruption of wedding festivities is
reported from Bejarva. A youne couple
bad been married and. tbe wedding party
had gone to a restaurant, where a wedding
feast was served. After the banquet danc
ing was beguu. Everything was pro
gressing smoothly when, without an in
stant's warning, tbe walls of the building
collansed. The entire tiartv. with tho
h employes of the retaurant, were buried in
A crowd attracted by the noise quickly
gathered for the work of rescue. Spurred
on by the frantic appeals for help, the men
threw the heavy timbers aside. They soon
came to the terribly crushed and mangled
body of one of the wedding guests. Soon
several persons who had been caught
by the falling timbers were taken
out alive, but badly injured. When
the wreck was cleared away sufficiently for
it to be known that no one else was in the
rums, nine bodies were lying in a ghastly
row on the sidewalk. The. injured num
bered 30, some of whom, it is thought, will
not recover. Others will be crippled for
life. It is supposed the movements of the
dancers caused the collapse.
