traffic manager of tho Minnesota North western in reply to a raquost for n suspension of tho long and short haul clause in its application to cectaln points along his in which Judge Cooley explains why action on the application has been Ho says that the law author izes tho commission to make exceptions only where the grounds for relief are spe cial and and that a suspension Chicago Builders Declare for and Will Employ w He SoveM Connection adoption defining the reln of a and In wero read Now from Boston The document spoken of above consists ede the g of tho following the must be based upon an investigation which of tho followmg that the case building interests of Chicago I the right of every man to decide j anv under any ground I knowledge of or any other satisfies tho commission that tho case is ho intended the law in its main features to be perma contemplated sacrl which must bo submitted to by a few for tho good of the Judge Cooley then recites the appeals horctoforo made to tho commission by railroads and other corporations to sus pend tho long and short haul made in tho belief that the probability of injury would bo sufficient warrant for an order granting This belief was without legal The or even that injury to corpora tions or individuals will result is ho by for a suspension anywhera of its ordinary The letter then continues must bo and will be exceptional In the absence of any specification of these in the act itself the commission was obliged to de termine us best it might what eases wero prob ably in the mind of Congress whew exceptional relief was provided It also found itself con fronted with tho question whether railroads might determine for but at their whether in any particular ease tho cir cumstances and conditions wero so far different as to justify u greater charge for a shorter or on the other only upon and In view of such different circumstances and conditions tho commission was empowered to The suspension authorized by tho act was to be ordered after The com deemed it wise to some temporary orders on an investigation not as complete as it expected finally to This was done in the belief that no considerable mischief could follow from allowing tho existing condition of things to remain for a brief whether then suffered to stand or and that harmful results from a sudden change in the law might thereby to some extent be This course also gave the commission such opportunity for careful study of the system which Congress undertook to reform as would otherwise have been want This method of proceeding the commis sion at the time believed had important ad van tnges and it still believes will conduce to the best results in the The commission must consider in each case what effect the giving relief to one applicant have upon other and your knowl edge of railroad matters must enable you to perceive that in some sections of the country the granting of ono application may so affect the in terests of other roads as to create a necessity for a like relief to several the satisfaction of one claim begetting others equally if all are the exception becomes a When such a result is probable the resi sons for declining to make any temporary or der arc very The commission can not consent deliberately to enter upon a high way to all there will no halting place within the limits of its lawful ju If a general suspension of tho long and short haul clause of the statute is not to be made by a single comprehensive neither should the same result be reached or ap proached by granting successive orders in indi vidual It is not our purpose in this com munication to express any opinion as to what ought to be tho final conclusion upon your ap Tho commission is not yet prepared to give fts and purpose this answer to your telegram merely to place before you some of the reasons which up to this time have pre cluded definite Tho InterState Commerce Commission yesterday devoted some time to hearing John
