Commission Holds -States
.'- Fixing Rail Kates
WASinXGTOX, March !4.-The Inter
state Commerce commission In an opinion
made pubUe today established the far
reaching principle that a railroad must so
adjust its rates that Justice will be done
between communities regardless of state
lines. If a railroad makes a low rate
upon traffic wholly within a state, even
when forced to do so by a state commis
sion. It must accord the same rate to
Interstate traffio moving under sub
stantially similar conditions.
The principle was laid down by a vote
of four to three. The minority held that
the powers of congress were usurped by
the majority opinion and that the remedy
for such a aituatlon should he applied
through additional legislation as In the
case of the railroad commission of Louisi
ana against the St. Louis ft Southwestern
railway and other carriers operating be
tween Louisiana and Texas.
The Case practically precipitated a-con
flict between federal and state authority
over the control of Interstate traffio. The
opinion of the majority of the Interstate
Commerce commission, prepared and
handed down by Commissioner Lane, Is a
definite assertion of the supremacy of na
tional regulatory authority over the
power -exercised by sny state.- It is the
first time this assertion has been made
distinctly by the commission. In making
It Chairman Prouty and Commissioners
Clark and Meyer concurred with Commis
sioner Lane andjComralsaloners Clements,
Harlan and McChord dissented.
