for relief tiled by raihoad compa
nies under the fourth section ol iie
act. The jirnbability. or even !:(
certainty, that injury to corpii.i
tions or to individuals will result is
not by itself under the net any
ground for a suspension anywhere
ol its ordinary operations. If the
law in its general operation were
to pro e generally and equally mis
chievous m all directions, the oni
mission. instead of having the
greater power for that reason,
would, on the other hand, have no
power ot suspension whatever, ler
the simple and plain n-ason that
there would then be no exceptional
cases for it to act upon, and there
fore no cases referred by the act to
its judgment. But there must and
will be exceptional cases. In the
absence of any specification id' these
in the act itself the commission
was obliged to determine as best it
might what cases were probably m
the mind ot Congress when the ex
ceptional relief was provided for.
The suspension authorized by the
act was to be ordered after investi
gation. This was plainly deter
mined by the act itself. The com
mission, however, deemed it wise
to grant some temporary orders on
an investigation not as complete as
it expected finally to make. This
was done in the belief that no con
siderable mischief could follow from
allowing an existing condition ..f
things to remain for a brief period,
whether it was then suffered to
stand or not. and that harmful re
sults from a sudden change in the
law might thereby to some extent
be avoided. This course also g.ne
the commission such an opportu
nity tor careful studv of the s ,!.
wh oh ( 'ongri'ss undertook to i .
foiiu as would otherwise have been
wanting. If the new law had been
left to operate universally, the old
state of things would have tu-eii
swept away at once, and the com
mission, seeing only what had been
substituted for it, would have been
deprived of the best and most sat
isfactory means of making jtist
comparison. Such a comparison
was important, not merely to ena
ble it to pass liually with full
knowledge upon the exceptional
cases, but also the better to pre
pare it to make in its periodical re
ports such suggestions and recom
mendations as might naturally be
looked for. You speak strongly
and earnestly of the reasons tor
granting your application. Hut in
order to warrant its being granted,
it is not enough that the applica
tion if considered by itself appears
to have merit. The commission
must consider in each case what
effect the giving relief to one appli
cant will have upon other interests,
and your knowledge of railroad
matters must enable you to per
ceive that in some .-etions of the
count ry the granting of one appli
cation may so affect the interests
of other roatls as to create a neces-
eitv for the like relief to several

,,robabie the reasons for declining
to make any temporary order are
verv conclusive. The commission
cannot consent deliberately to
enter upon a highway where, to all
appearance, there will be no halt
ing place within the limits of its
lawful jurisdiction. If a general
suspension of the -long and short
haul clause" of the statute is not to
be made by a single comprehensive
order, neither should the same re
sult be reached or approached by
the granting of successive orders in
individual cases. In whatever the
commission may do, it must keep
in view the preservation of the
general rule. In these views the
whole commission concurs.
