FREIGHT TARIFFS

INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION'S NOTICE IN THE MATTER OF REISSUING TARIFFS TO

COVER REDUCED RATES (1922). Under date of July 21, 1922, the Interstate Commerce Commission issued the following notice to carriers:

"Following the Commission's decision in Docket No. 13293, Reduced Rates, 1922, carriers requested that they be permitted to effect the reductions therein prescribed by the use of so-called master tariffs and connecting link supplements, thus permitting them to publish the reduced rates in as inexpensive a manner as possible and without the necessity, at this time, of reissuing their current tariffs. The Commission accordingly issued its special permission No. 59060 (amended), under the terms of which the provisions of certain rules in its Tariff Circular 18-A were te,porarily waived and the filing of master tariffs and connecting link supplements was permitted.

“The said special permission requires that each carrier and agent, whose tariffs by special supplements are made subject to a tariff of reduced rates, shall submit on or before August 1, 1922, a report containing the total number of pages in tariffs thus supplemented. There is a further requirement that not less than 16— per cent of the number of pages contained in all tariffs to which a special connecting link supplement is filed under authority of Special Permission No. 59060 (amended), shall be reissued and filed within three months from July 1, 1922. Moreover, the same number must likewise be reissued and filed during each succeeding period of three months until all tariffs so supplemented shall have been reissued. Thus there are six periods of three months each extending from July 1, 1922, until December 31, 1923, during each of which the minimum number of pages will be reissued, and at the end of each period a report will be submitted showing the number of pages contained in tariffs as to which the cancellation of the special supplement has been accomplished.

"Following the Commission's decision in Ex Parte 74, Increased Rates, 1920, the carriers, under Special Permission No. 50340, were permitted to establish their increased rates by the filing of special supplements in much the same manner as they have now established the recent reductions. Likewise there were provisions in Special Permission No. 50340 requiring the reissuance of the tariffs supplemented thereunder to the same extent as now contemplated by Special Permission No. 59060 (amended).

“During the time that tariffs, to which had been filed the so-called Ex Parte 74 supplements, were being reissued the Commission found it necessary to conduct considerable correspondence due partly to the fact that some few carriers showed laxity in effecting compliance with the Commission's orders, while others did not apparently understand precisely what was actually required. There were still others who rendered erroneous reports as to the number of pages reissued during a certain period, with resulting correspondence seeking to reconcile these reports with the Commission's records.

"From what was experienced following Special Permission No. 50340 it seems appropriate that an announcement be made so that all carriers and publishing agents will have a clear understanding as to the requirements of Special Permission No. 59060 (amended) to the end that prompt compliance with the terms thereof may be had and the correspondence in connection therewith may be minimized. Therefore, in reissuing tariffs in compliance with the Commission's order in Special Permission No. 59060 (amended), carriers and tariff publishing agents will be governed by the following:

"1. When practicable and the requirements of Rule 9 (e) of Tariff Circular 18-A can be met by publishing specifically the reduced rates provided by a connecting link supplement, such may be accomplished by the filing of a regular supplement to a tariff, and if the connecting link supplement is thereby cancelled, credit will be given accordingly.

“2. In the reissue of any tariff to which there is filed a connecting link supplement, including ·loose-leaf or otherwise, no credit will be given until such reissued tariff is cancelled in full.

"3. If a tariff is rejected for failure to give statutory notice no credit will be given until a tariff in lieu thereof is filed which will effect the cancellation purported to have been effected by the rejected issue.

“4. In order that the carriers' reports may harmonize with the records of the Commission it is important that credit be claimed for the same period in which it is to be allowed. It is to be understood, therefore, that credit will be allowed only in the period in which schedules are received and carriers should keep their records accordingly, that is to say, in such a manner as to correspond with those kept by the Commission, which method may easily be followed by reference to duplicate letters of transmittal. These letters are equivalent to receipts to the carriers for schedules received for filing and, before being returned, they are stamped to show precisely the date on which the Commission

them.

“The number of tariffs supplemented in the manner authorized by Special Permission No. 59060 (amended) is very materially less than the number to which were filed special supplements following Ex Parte 74, but notwithstanding this fact there has been extended, under the terms of Special Permission No. 59060 (amended) the same length of time in which to reissue the tariffs supplemented under its authority. It must be understood, therefore, that with the liberal time allowed, the Commission will insist upon having full compliance with the terms of its order and will hold all carriers to account for failure to reissue, during each three months' period, at least 16% per cent of the number of pages contained in all tariffs to which special connecting link supplements have been filed.

"(Signed) GEORGE B. McGINTY,

Secretary."

The Interstate Commerce Act, in Section 6, provides that the Interstate Commerce Commission may determine and prescribe the form in which the tariffs of the carriers shall be published. The rules prescribed by the Commission for the construction of tariffs are published from time to time in what are called tariff circulars. The present rules are published in Tariff Circular 18-A, and are reproduced on the following pages.

filing. Form and size of tariff.

All tariffs must be in book, sheet, or pamphlet form, and of size 8 by 11 inches. Loose-leaf plan may be used so that changes can be made by reprinting and inserting a single leaf. (See

Clear explanation of the use of distinctive type or symbols must be made in the tariff.

(b) When a new tariff canceling a previous tariff omits points of origin or destination or rates which were contained in such previous tariff, the new tariff shall show, in the manner prescribed in paragraph (e) of Rule 8, where the rate or rates will thereafter be found, and if such omissions
