Excerpt from Thirteenth Annual Report of the Interstate Commerce Commission: January 15, 1900

These Carriers could have refrained altogether from taking any action under the orders issued in the cases mentioned. They could, in the present condition of the law, have stood upon their legal right to await the direction of the Circuit Court upon a petition by the Commission and another trial of the issues in that court. In cases involving impor tant rates the carriers often do take advantage of that right. The more important the case may be, the greater the benefit conferred upon shippers or communities, the less likely is the order of the Commission to be obeyed. The Commission must not only. Render a just decision, but one that is convincing to the carrier, in order to afford the relief from unlawful rates which is contemplated in the statute. If the carrier is not so convinced it merely ignores the order, and the time involved in enforcing the same generally covers a period of years, which amounts in most cases to a denial of justice.
