Description

Excerpt from Twenty-Third Annual Report of the Interstate Commerce Commission: December 21, 1909 In subsequent pages of this report will be found statements more or less in detail respecting the Operations of the several bureaus or divisions established for the purpose of discharging the duties imposed upon the Commission. It may fairly be said that the Commission has been able to keep abreast of the current work involved in the hearing and determination of complaints, general correspondence, and the enforcement of the safety-appliance and kindred laws, and that encouraging progress has been made toward the accomplishment of important reforms directed or authorized by the amendments of 1906, such as the formulation of a uniform accounting system for carriers by railroad and of rules intended to secure the simplification of tariff construction. Since our last report to the Congress the Commission has decided 591 cases instituted by formal complaint and answer, and 197 such cases have been disposed of in other ways, such as by stipulation of the parties for dismissal or motion of the complainant for discon tinuance. Thus a total of 788 formal cases have been removed from the Commission's docket during the year. A digest of the matters decided by the Commission in important cases will be printed in an appendix to this report.
