[ADMINISTRATIVE RULINGS AND OPINIONS.]

for two or more express companies, will rest upon that one of his principals that accepts and forwards the business under that tariff.

Policy of Commission on complaints.-In passing upon a complaint of overcharge growing out of improper or unlawful inclusion of any carrier's name in the list of participating carriers in the tariff under which the business was accepted and for. warded the Commission will apply the principles above stated.

45. Withdrawal of filed tarifis not permitted.-Not infrequently the Commission is requested to return to carriers tariff publications which have been received and filed by the Commission in the ordinary course of business. Such requests are usually based on the desire to substitute some corrected or changed publication for the one that has been filed. Manifestly it would be improper for the Commission to permit such substitutions or to surrender any tariff publication duly and properly received and filed by it, unless such surrender is caused by rejection of such publication by the Commission because of illegality or irregularity in connection therewith. To surrender publications duly filed and permit the substitution of others would involve a species of falsification of the records which could not be permitted.

46. Ocean carriers—when not subject to the Act.--Ocean carriers between ports of the United States and foreign countries not adjacent are not subject to the terms of the Act to regulate commerce; nor to the jurisdiction of the Commission.

Export and import tariffs. —The inland carriers of traffic exported to or imported from a foreign country not adjacent, must publish their rates to the ports and from the ports, and such rates must be the same for all regardless of what ocean carrier may be designated by the shipper.

Through rates may be shown.-As a matter of convenience to the public they may publish in their tariffs such through export or import rates to or from foreign points as they may make in connection with ocean carriers. Such tariffs must, however, distinctly state the inland rate as above provided; and need not be concurred in by the ocean carrier, because, concurrence can be required from, and is effective against, only carriers subject to the Act.

Must be filed and posted.—Whichever plan of publishing these rates is followed the tariffs must be filed and posted, and may be changed only upon statutory notice or under special permission for shorter time.

Through export and import billing.—Export and import traffic may be forwarded under through billing, but such through billing must clearly separate the liability of the inland carrier or carriers and of the ocean carrier, and must show the tariff rate of the inland carrier or carriers.
