I3TTEHSTATK COMMERCE COMMISSION, WASH
INGTON, April 10. In tlie matter of the petition
of the Order of Railway Conductors. In the
matter of the petition of the Traders' and Trav
elers Union. An application in writing has
been made ro the Commission for its answer to
the following questions propounded on behalf
of the Order of Railway Conductors:
First Are railway companies prohibited from
issuing free transportation to the immediate
Xamilies of employes of their own railways?
Second Are railway companies prohibited
from issuing free or reduced transportation to
officers of associations composed exclusively of
railway employes while those officers are tem
porarily out of railway service and exclusively
employed by these associations?
Third May railway companies Issue passes
to employes of other railways on the applica
tion of the employe, or must such application
come from the officer of the company by which
he Is employed?
Fourth May railway companies issue free or
reduced transportation to those who make rail
way service their business or trade while tem
porarily out of employment and in search of a
Fifth May railroad companies provide free
transportation for delegates to the annual con
ventions of an association composed exclusive
ly of railway employes upon certificate from
the officers of the association that they are
Sixth If free transportation may be fur
nished to representatives described in question
five, mutt all such representatives be actually
n the employ of some railway or may it include
those who may be temporarily out of employ -neat
and those temporarily engaged in other
employments as officers of such associations?
Seventh II free transportation is provided
for the delegates described in question five,
may it include members of the immediate fam
ilies cf delegates.
JC'hth If free transportation or reduced
T.cs are provided for the representatives of
any one association, must the same be extended
to all others which are comxjosed exclusively
of railway employes on application.
Another application has been made to the
Commission on behalf of the Traders' and Trav
elers' Union, stating the system under whii-h
an additional allowance of free bapgago has
heretofore been carried :by commercial travel
ers subject to a written agreement for registry
and indemnification, which system the Commis
sion is requested to examine carefully "and ad
vise us if there is any reason why a railroad
company desiring to do so should not enter into
such an arrangement to grant under stated
terms an increased allowance of frco bag-page-"
- These two petitions, presented by highly re
spectable organizations and raising questions
of immediate practical importance, are repre
sentative -of a large number of similar applica
tions which hare been made to the Commission
for Its construction of provisions of the "act to
regulate commerce" as applied to the various
points at which those provisions touch the cus
toms 't the past. They have been selected
simply as they indicate the general character of
all and enable the Commission to announce
certain conclusions to which it has arrived re
specting its Jurisdiction and its powers.
It is obvious from the tenor of such applica
tions as these, which reach us by every mail,
that the impression is generally pre-alent that
this Commission has the power to construe, in
terpret and apply the law by preliminary
judgment. We are continually appealed to
lor . decisions in advance as to whether
common carriers, said to be willing to adopt
certain methods of dealing with respect
to inter-State commerce, can do so without sub
jecting themselves to the penalties provided by
the statute for violating its provisions. A care
ful rending of the "act to regulate commerce,"
tinder which this Commission is organized, will
show to the petitioners and others who have
made similar application that no jurisdiction
has been given us to answer questions liue
those under consideration. An expression of
our opinion on these subjects at this time, be
ing neither a duty imposed nor a power con
ferred by the statute, would carry with it no
judicial efficacy or sanction; in fact would be no
more useful to the public or the carriers than
Two suctions of the law confer power upon
heCommission to entertain and decide appli
cations and petitions. Section 4 empowers us,
upon. application by a common carrier, to au
thorize such common carrier in special cases to
charnr? less for longer than for shorter distances
over the same line. and also to prescribe the ex
tent of relief the operation of the former part of
the same section which a designated common
carrier may from time to time enjoy. A large
number of petitions have been filed under this
section, the consideration of which is at this
time engaging the attention of the Commission,
and nothing said in this opinion Is to be treated
n in any manner bearing thereon. It is obvious
that applications like these of the railway con
ductors and the Traders' and Travelers' Union
have no relation whatever to the duties imposed
upon us bj section 4. And this is the only sec
tion of the law which tlicCommission has power
to suspend or relax.
Section is authorizes .complaints to the Com
mission and confers jurisdiction to entertain the
came. It provides that any person "complain
ing of any thing done or omitted to be done by
any common carrier subject to-the provisions of
this act in contravention of the provisions
thereof may apply to said 'Commission by peti
tion which shall briefly t tate the facts." Notice
and opportunity for answer having been given,
unless -satisfaction is made, .an investigation is
required. Upon such an investigation the Com
mission will necessarily entertain the considera
tion of the question whecher-8he- conduct com
plained tf is or is not is (Contravention of the
proTisions,of the law, and if it bo adjudges it is
authorized to issuo a botice enjoining the
carrier from further violation ! tthe law and to
award reparation for the Lnjury tdone, or both.
But- neither .the railway conductors nor Traders
and Travelers' Union complain Ih at uny com
foon carrier has violated the law. iOn the con
trary, they both aver that the railroad com
panies do not now violate the law. and do not
wish to do so. The conductors say that they
hear they will not receive passes as heretofore,
and the traders and travelers say taut they fear
commercial travelers will not be allowed free
transportation for 150 pounds of extra baggage
as was allowed last year. The present com
plain, is not of auy thing done or emitted in
contiavention of tiie provisions of te law.
If a railroad company should issue a pass to a
conductor and his family to attend the ap
proaching convention or should transport &K
pounds of baggage free for a commercial travel
er under tine registry And Indemnity system, and
some person feeling aggrieved should make
complaint of unjust discrimination, it would
then be proper for the Commission to ester
tain the question of whether such conduct was
or was not ia violation of the law, and il so
whether it was or was nt within the exceptions
tted within section 23.
Complaints may also be presented if the
Charges made by the carriers are not considered
reasonable and just. But until questions of
this kind come belore us la the way clearly In
dicated by the statute, it would be worse than
useless for us to express opinions or give ad
sice. We should not only lay ourselves justly
irpen to the charge of a&sumiag unwarranted
Authority, bat also ru great risk of involving
all concerned in what the court might after
TOkad hold to be breaches of the tew, by hasty
and 1 -considered conclusions, batted upon ex
part statements and arguments. Although It
might roe desirable or ax least convenient In
rejpect to any piece of new legi&latio to have
tribunal established to which inquirers might
PPly for to tractions and advice respecting- the
meaning of tie law and its application to sag- :
jrested. "circumstances and conditions," a auv i
aest'f reflection will show that bo such tribu
nal eonld be properly erected. Ctngre naa
not taken the management of th railroads out
of the hands of the railroad oeespanies. Ifhaa
simply established certain general principles
under which inter-State commerce must be con
ducted. It has enacted ia section 1, that all
charges for inter-State transportation "shall be
reasonable and just:" has prohibited In section
2 all manner of unjust discriminations; has for
bidden in section 3 all undue and unreasonable
preferences and advantages; has required ia
the same section reasonable and equal facilities
for the interchange of traffic: and has prohib
ited in section 5 the pooling of freights.
That in substance is the Inter-State Com
merce law. There is nothing novel in these
provisions. They simply bring back the busi
ness of the common carriers to the well settled,
principles of the common law. Yet no ote
can deny that there was urgent need or their
statutory formulation. Alleged difficulties in
putting them in operation only disclose ex
amples of the extent to which they have been
violated in the past. These sections of the act
are expressed in plain words. A construction
must be given to them in the first Instance by
the carriers and their patrons. When a course
of conduct has been adopted of which complaint
is made that it violates the law, the decision
of the question will rest with the courts or
with the Commission, as the complaining party
may elect. This is the ordinary method in
which ail legislation is administered and ap
plied, and that the statute in question presents
One more suggestion may properly be added.
It appears from the numerous petitions that
have been laid before us for preliminary ad
vice, many of them obviously upon the sugges
tion, if not by the procurement of the carriers
themselves, that common comment on the law
by the carriers and those who have heretofore
enjoyed special favors at their hands, describe
the system of penalties which the law provides
as extreme, and the risks imposed upon unin
tentional and unwitting violaters of its provis
ions as enormous. Such comment seems to us
neither fair nor just. It is true that section 8
provides that for violation of the law and for
failure to do an act which the law requires, the
offending carrier shall be liable to the injured
party for the actual damage sustained, together
with a reasonable counsel or attorney fee, to
be fixed by the court and collected with the
costs in the case.
It is also true that section 10 imposes a fine of
"not to exceed ?5,(XH" upon common carriers
and their officers, agents and servants who wil
fully do or cause to be done, or willingly sun'er
or permit to be done, any prohibited act, etc.,
upon conviction in a district court of the United
States. The civil remedy described in section
8 adds an attorney's fee to the existing com
mon law right of any injured party to recover
the full amount of his damages, a condition of
affairs which can not greatly alarm corporations
disposed to fair dealing: while the criminal
remedy given in section 10 obviously pertains to
intentional violators of the law, and is in these
cases to be graduated by the court according to
the enormity of the offense. Good faith, exhib
ited in an honest effort to carry out the require
ments of the law, will involve reasonable and
fair-minded officials in no danger of damages or
fines. The elasticity of the statute in their
favor is noticeable. The unjust discrimination
of section 2 must be '"in a like and contem
poraneous service, in the transportation of a
like kind of traffic, under substantially similar
circumstances and conditions." The preference
or advantage of section 3 must be "undue or un
reasonable." Throusrhout the act, as it now stands. In a
confessedly experimental form, there is an ob
vious and a generous purpose to allow the cor
porations ample scope in the conduct of their
business as common carriers for the people and
fair consideration of every reasonable claim,
while insisting upon just, impartial, open and
consistent rates of charge to which every citi
zen shall be subject a?ike whose situation is
tbe same. Surely the people could not ask for
The language and the tenor of the act wholly
fail to justify railroad managers, if any such
there be, who refuse to accept responsibilities,
decline to offer rates, neglect to announce con
ditions of traffic, -embarrass the customary in
terchange f business and impose stagnation
upon trade, while they "stick in the bark" of
the phrases and expressions of the law, invent
ing doubts and imagining dangers. It is still
more unjustifiable for railroad companies to
make use of the general clauses of the law, ig
noring its modifying and enlarging words and
formulas in order to impose additional burdens
upon localities, trades, professions, man
ufacturers, consumers, classes of travelers or
employes, st'-aining and repressing every con
struction in favor of the corporate treasury and
quoting the new law as thoir authority for all
manner of petty-exactions. The powers of the
Commission are entirely adequate to cope with
such conduct, the existence of which is not af
ilrmod, although it has been somewhat publicly
suggested. The same statute which enacts that
charges for like service shall be uniform to all,
also provides that charges in every case and for
every kind and class of service shall be reason
able and just. As the law Is practically applied
it is said to contain many elements of advan
tage to the economical and profitable manage
ment of the business of the carriers, which
they have not been slow to apprehend and tako
the benefit of.
The Commission ventures to express the hope
taat with this explanation respecting the mu
tual functions of the carriers and the Commis
sioners in currying the law Into effect according
to the true intent and meaning there will be no
lack of good faith and active co-operation in
continuing the normal activity of every kind of
reputable industry and traffic throughout the
land, under favorable, fair and reasonable
terms, conceding frankly to tho people all the
rights, benefits, advantages and equal privi
leges which the- "act to regulate commerce'"
was intended to secure.
A Religious Taper's Views as to Their Du
ties and KIgnts.
A mi niwter" wife -should, of course,
be a demoted Christian woman, and
sympathize and co-operate with her
husband in every good work. But it
is preposterous for a church to
claim double duty from her. She has
all the cares -f a. common housewife
and more than fall to the lot of an
ordinary woamtn. Why. then, should
a church imagine that they have hired
her public services as well as those of
her husband? If a man employs a
lawyer, physician or mechanic, would
he have the brass to claim the services
of the wife as rtll as the husband? It
is this double burden-bearing that is
and has been crushing the life out of
many a minister's wife. And if a
church is so heartless or thoughtless as
to demand from her public service,
which only a paid missionary without
the cares of a family should do, surely
her husband should not be so foolish
as to yield to this unjust demand. Fur
thermore, it should be remembered that
her home is not a public institution for
the inspection and criticism of every
idle gossip in the parish. If any pro
fessional man's wife but a ministers
should be subjected to one-half the
busy-bodying in domestie and private
affairs that a minister's wife endures
the whole community would rise up in
reprobation of such conduct. Baptist
