FREIGHT TARIFFS AND CLASSIFICATIONS.]

Filing.-Carrier issuing this form will file the original with the Commission and will furnish duplicate to each of the carriers named in the concurrence, or, if each of those carriers has given said agent power of attorney to receive for it concurrences, original will be filed with the Commission and one duplicate may be filed with such agent instead of furnishing duplicates to each and every carrier represented by him.

24. Form of concurrence.-If two or more carriers appoint the same person as agent for the publication and filing of tariffs and supplements thereto under powers of attorney form FX1, concurrence in tariffs issued by him under such authority may be in the following form:

To Be Filed With the Interstate Commerce Commission.
[Name of carrier in full.]

General Freight Department,

(Date) Form FX7-N0.. To the Interstate Commerce Commission,

Washington, D. C.: This is to certify that the [name of carrier) assents to and concurs in the pub. lication and filing of any freight rate schedule or supplement thereto which the [here give list of all roads for which the agent has powers of attorney), or either or any of them may make and file through their agent and attorney [name of agent), and in which it is shown as a participating carrier, and hereby makes itself a party to and bound thereby in so far as such schedule contains rates applying via its line, and to and from points thereon, until this authority is revoked by formal and official notices of revocation placed in the hands of the Interstate Commerce Commission and of the carrier to which this concurrence is given, or of its agent and attorney herein named.

[Name of carrier.] By [Name of officer.]

[Title of officer.]

Filing.-Carrier issuing this form will file the original with the Commission and will furnish duplicate to each of the carriers named in the concurrence, or, if each of those carriers has given said agent power of attorney to receive for it concurrences, original will be filed with the Commission and one duplicate may be filed with such agent instead of furnishing duplicates to each and every carrier represented by him.

25. Form of concurrence.-If two or more carriers appoint the same person as agent for the publication and filing of tariffs and supplements thereto under powers of attorney form FX1, concurrence in tariffs issued by him under such authority applying to or from certain points or territory may be issued in the following form, modified as may be necessary to confer exactly the authority intended to be granted:

(Date) Form FX8—No. To the Interstate Commerce Commission,

Washington, D.

party to and bound thereby in so far as such schedule contains rates applying upon ; or between - and

until this authority is revoked by formal and official notice of revocation placed in the hands of the Interstate Commerce Commission and of the carriers to which this concurrence is given, or of their agent and attorney herein named.

(Name of carrier.] By [Name of officer.]

(Title of officer.]

Filing.-Carrier issuing this form will file the original with the Commission and will furnish duplicate to each of the carriers named in the concurrence, or, if each of those carriers has given said agent power of attorney to receive for its concurrences, original will be filed with the Commission and one duplicate may be filed with such agent instead of furnishing duplicate to each and every carrier represented by him.

Note.-Concurrence, form FX2, applies to individual publication named therein. Concurrence, form FX3 or FX6, confers authority to publish and file rates to, but not from, stations on line of concurring carrier, and via its lines. Concurrence, form FX5 or FX7, confers authority to publish and file rates to and from stations on line of concurring carrier, and via its lines. Forms FX3, FX5, FX6, and FX7 are not to be modified except as specified in the rules. The use of these several forms as provided will, therefore, show by the form number just what authority has been given, except when form FX4 or FX8 is used, these forms being provided for instances which the other forms do not exactly fit. The Commission does not require the substitution of concurrence form FX5 for form FX4, now on file, which covers only the authority provided for in the new form FX5, but will welcome such substitution. For all new concurrences forms will be used as specified in the several rules, and FX4 or FX8 only when neither of the other forms provides for the authority it is desired to confer.

26. Numbers of concurrences and authorizations.-Each carrier will give authorizations and concurrences serial numbers, beginning with No. 1 in each series, as indicated by forms, and continuing in consecutive numbers as to each series, and keeping these numbers separate and apart from the I. C. C. numbers of tariffs.

Printing and use of authorizations and concurrences.-It is suggested that for convenience in reference and filing, the powers of attorney and concurrences be printed in triplicate, consisting of a "stub,!' to be retained by issuing carrier, an "original,' to be filed with the Commission, and a “duplicate,' to be furnished to the agent to whom power of attorney is given, or the carrier to which concurrence is given.

Revocation effective.-Notice of revocation of a concurrence will become effective forty days from the date upon which such notice is filed with the Commission and served upon the carrier to which such concurrence was given.

Subsidiary or small-line tariffs.—Subsidiary or small lines which do not wish to issue concurrences or tariffs may give to the parent or other line power of attorney to cóncur in tariffs, and also general concurrence FX4 or FX5, to file tariffs, and the carrier holding such authority and concurrence may give, and also receive, concurrences for itself and the lines for which it acts in one instrument. Such subsidiary or small lines must, however, be named in concurrences so given.

Conflicting authority to be avoided.-In giving concurrences care must be taken to avoid probability of two or more agents or carriers naming conflicting rates or rules.

Carrier issuing authority or concurrence is not relieved from duty of posting tariffs.—The granting of authority to issue tariffs under power of attorney, or concurrence, does not relieve the carrier conferring the authority from the necessity of complying with the law with regard to posting tariffs. It may use tariffs issued under its authority for that purpose.

(FREIGHT TARIFFS AND CLASSIFICATIONS.)

27. Letter of transmittal.-All tariffs that are filed with the Commission will be accompanied by a letter of transmittal, on paper 8 by 1042 inches in size, and to the · following effect:

(Name of carrier in full.]

General Freight Department,

(Date) Advice No. To the Interstate Commerce Commission,

1904;

(Signature of filing agent.)

A separate letter may accompany each schedule, or the form may be modified to provide for filing under one letter as many schedules as can conveniently be entered.

Note.-If receipt for accompanying schedule is desired the letter of transmittal must be sent in duplicate, and one copy will be stamped and returned as receipt.

PASSENGER FARE SCHEDULES.

Tariffs that were lawfully on file with the Commission on June 1, 1907, and that have not since that time been superseded or canceled, will be considered as continued in force and until they can be properly reissued may be amended without complying with the requirements of these rules as to the number and volume of supplements, and as to showing concurrence forms and numbers. All tariffs issued or reissued later than June 1, 1907, must conform to all of these rules. The Commission may direct the reissue of any tariff at any time. A tariff publication as to which these regulations have not been conformed to is subject to rejection by the Commission when tendered for filing.

The term “joint fare," as used herein, is construed to mean a fare that extends over the lines of two or more carriers and that is made by joint arrangement or agreement between such carriers.

"Joint tariffs” are those which contain or are made up from such "joint fares.”

28. Tariffs must be printed.-All tariffs must be printed on hard calendered paper of good quality from type of size not less than 6-point full face. Stereotype, planograph, or other printing-press process may be used. Reproductions by hectograph or similar process, typewritten sheets, or proof sheets must not be used for posting or filing, except in preparation of tariffs covering excursion fares that are effective for not exceeding ten consecutive selling dates or for excursions limited to thirty days or less.

29. Three classes of tariffs.—Passenger tariffs will be of three classes:

(a) Joint tariffs, applying to traffic between points on the lines of two or more carriers.

(b) Local tariffs, applying only to traffic between points on the lines of the issuing carrier.

(c) Interdivision tariffs, applying only to traffic between points on different divi. sions of the lines of the issuing carrier, except that, under proper concurrences, shown in the tariff, interdivision fares may be included to and from points on directly connecting subsidiary lines. When this is done the title of tariff must be “Interdivision tariff of Ry, and its subsidiary lines,” and each such subsidiary line must be shown in list of participating carriers, together with the form and number of its concurrence. The use of interdivision tariffs will be optional with carriers.

30. Size and form of tariffs.—Joint tariffs must be in page or pamphlet form, and of size 8 by 11 inches. Local and interdivision tariffs may be in book form, not larger than 8 by 11 inches, or in single-sheet form of size desired by issuing carrier. Loose-leaf plan may be used so that changes can be made by reprinting and inserting a single leaf.

31. Local tariffs.-Local tariffs may be in one or more books or pamphlets and must show the exact fare from cach point to each other point on the lines of the issuing carrier. If desired, certain of the fares which appear in local tariffs may be repeated in interdivision or joint tariffs, but fares so repeated must be the same in every tariff in which they appear.

32. Contents of interdivision tariffs.-Interdivision tariffs shall show:

(a) The exact fares between each point on one division and each point on the other division or divisions to which the tariff applies; or

(b) The exact fares between each point on a division and the principal points on the other division or divisions to which the tariff applies, together with explicit rules and bases from which to determine the fares to and from each of the less important points on the division or divisions to which the tariff applies and which are not named in the tariff.

[PASSENGER FARE SCHEDULES.]

33. Title-page shall show:—The title-page of every tariff shall show:
(a) Name of carrier or agent.-Name of issuing carrier, carriers, or agent.

(b) I. C. C. number and cancellations.-1. C. C. number of tariff in bold type on upper right-hand corner, and immediately thereunder, in smaller type, the I. C. C. number or numbers of tariffs and supplements canceled thereby. If, however, the number of canceled tariffs is so large as to render it impracticable to thus enter them, they must be shown on following page, but specific reference to such list must be entered on title-page immediately under the number of the tariff. Serial numbers of carrier may, if desired, be entered below the upper marginal line of title-page. Separate serial I. C. C. numbers will be used for freight and passenger tariffs.

(c) Kind of tariff.—Whether tariff is local, interdivision, or joint.

(d) Territory. The territory or points from and to which the tariff applies, briefly stated.

(e) Dates.—Date of issue and date effective. Any tariff may be changed upon statutory notice of thirty days, or, under special permission from the Commission, upon shorter notice. Therefore, a provision in a tariff that the tariff, or any part of it, will expire upon a given date, is not a guaranty that the tariff, or such part of it, will remain effective until that date. The Commission considers such expiration notices undesirable, as many complications have arisen through their being overlooked. Such provision, if used, must be understood to mean that the tariff, or specified part of it, will expire upon the date named unless sooner canceled, changed, or extended in lawful way. On such tariffs the term “Expires -, unless sooner canceled, changed, or extended," must be used.

(f) Officer issuing.–Name, title, and address of officer by whom tariff is issued.

(g) Only one supplement.-On upper left-hand corner the words: “Only one supplement to this tariff may be in effect at any time.” (See exception in Rule 52.)

(h) When issued by special permission or order of Commission on less than statutory notice.-On every tariff or supplement that is issued on less than thirty days' notice by permission from or order or regulation of the Commission, notation that it is issued under special permission or order of the Interstate Commerce Commission, No. of date

or by authority of Rule Tariff Circular (i) Notation on excursion tariff.-On every excursion tariff issued under Rule 52 notation, “Issued Under Authority of Rule 52, Tariff Circular 15-A.”

34. Tariffs shall contain:-Tariffs shall contain, in the order named:

(a) Table of contents.-Table of contents, full and complete. Names of issuing carriers, including those for which joint agent acts under power of attorney, and names of carriers participating under concurrences, both alphabetically arranged. If there be not more than ten participating carriers their names may be shown on the title-page of the tariff. The form and number of the power of attorney or concurrence by which each carrier is made party to the tariff* must be shown.

Excursion fare tariffs must show, or refer to, list of participating carriers.Tariffs containing round-trip excursion fares and instructions as to sale and use of tickets thereunder must show a full list of carriers, parties thereto, or, must give reference by I. C. C. numbers to the tariffs on which such excursion fares are based; must bear notation that the same carriers that are parties to the tariffs so referred to are, under the authorities and concurrences there shown, parties to the excursion fare tariff

, and provision that tickets must not be sold thereunder via the line of any carrier that is not specified as party to the tariff or tariffs so referred to.

(c) Index of stations.-Alphabetically arranged and complete index of stations from which the tariff applies, and alphabetically arranged and complete index of stations to which the tariff applies, together with the name of State in nich located. If there be not more than twelve points of origin and twelve points of destination, they may, if practicable, be shown on title-page of tariff.

Geographical description of application of tariff.-Geographical description of application of tariff may be used only when the tariff applies from or to all stations in one or more States or Territories, or when it applies to all points in a State or Territory except those specified. But such list of exceptions for a State may not
