before being That to under the provisions of the railroad became on that day prima facie evidence in the courts of reasonable It must be remembered that the commis sion has no power mako absolute freight when the in this modified has been promul gated and there are two modes of enforcing One is for the shipper to go before the commission and ask the commission to make an order compelling the road to adopt the course this also may be done on the commission on The other method is for the shipper to go into the ordnary Upon show ing that he had paid more than the com missioners rate the shipper would be en titled to recover the surplus back unless the road proves the rate to be unreason The commission is of course a law abiding body and docs not propose to violate the So the former
