Involving the validity of the provision of the Interstate commerce net prohibiting a higher charge for ft short than for a long haul, appealed from the derision of thr circuit court of appeals for the fifth clr- j cult. The appeal was taken by the railroads. Its title was "The Inter-State | Commerce Commission vs. the Clneln- J natl. New Orleans & Texas Pacific Hallroad Company, the Western <fc Atlantic Railroad Company and the Georgia rail- j road." The decision of the court below wus nftlrtnrd in the main, the opinion i holding that In eases of shipments from one state to another on through bills of | lading, railroad companion could not exempt parties and give them special rates. Juutlce Shlras delivered the opinion of the court. The case Involved the construction of the fourth section of the lnter-state commerce act. known as the long and short haul section. The dispute concerning this matter Is one that has been continually arising In various parts of the country, and It has been of gr? at Importance, as well t-? the Interests or commerce us in u?In every part of the country, that the question be put at rest. There wan also drawn In question in ; th* case the very Important question of the power of the Inter-state commerce commission to tlx maximum rates In vnnrti properly brought before it. The three railroad companies are the connecting roads running from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Atlanta, Oa. This litigation begnu through the complaint ??t a seller ??f buggies at Cincinnati to the inter-state commerce commission that the rates to Augusta at the end of the Georgia railroad ami to Social Circle, which was a point on the Georgia railroad fifty miles below Atlanta, were such as to unfairly discriminate against Social Circle. The Texas Pacific ami the Atlantic & Western roads claimed in their answer that the rate to Social Clrclo could only be made by consent of the Georgia roadon which It wm located. The Georgia company admitted that the rates to Social I Circle were the rates to Atlanta, plus the rate from Atlanta to Social Circle, nnd contended that they were not unn-ason&ble, the rate to Atlanta being lees than It should be, because of the competition with lines from that city to Baltimore, __ BANK OF LIEUTENANT GENERAL. j Why Secretary |,tmont Oppotra Its Revival tn Crurntl Mllf?'
