New Era in Rate Legislation.
When our state pride has subsided
a little and we are able to look at the
Sanborn railroad rate decision calm
ly, we shall probably see that it is the
beginning of a new and beneficent sys
tem of rate regulation in this country.
The new system will involve one su
preme central authority, instead of a
central authority more or less at wai
with forty-six subordinate ones. The
troublesome "twilight zone" between
federal and state regulation will dis
appear. This, of course, is contin
gent on the affirmation of the Sanborn
decision by the United States supreme
Judge Sanborn, in effect, holds that
the railroad rates of this country are
one vast interwoven fabric, each
thread of whose texture is dependent
upon the other threads. Change the
rates within one state and you change
them in that entrie region. If the fed
eral government is to regulate rates
between the states it must inevitably
regulate rates within the states. That
is the logic of the situation. And in
the end complete submission to the
logic of the situation will bring about
better conditions. The interstate com
merce commission and the interstate
commerce court will grow vastly in
authority, but the growth will be no
less for the benefit of the people than
for that of the railroads. Such in
congruities, for instance, as the Iowa
distance tariff, which so disturbs the
equanimity of southern Minnesota,
will disappear.
As for the state railroad commis
sions, they will find themselves shorn
of vast powers and responsibilities.
But they will still be necessary for
the regulation of conditions of rail
road servicethe operation of trains,
the furnishing of station facilities, the
supplying of freight cars, the order
ing of switching facilities and numer
ous matters of that kind. A new era
in the relation of the government to
the railroads so far as rates are con
cerned is at hand.Minneapolis Jour
