Syllabus

Order of the Interstate Commerce Commission fixing intrastate rates on fertilizers to correspond with interstate rates sustained over the objections that the action taken was arbitrary, that there was not a full hearing, that the issue determined was not the issue pleaded or heard, that there was no finding showing a competitive relationship of any rate interstate with any rate intrastate and no definite finding justifying the regulation of all intrastate rates, that there was no evidence to sustain any such findings, and none to sustain the finding and order which prescribed like rates for joint and single line hauls, and, finally, that the rates prescribed intrastate are not in harmony with the interstate rates. Cf. Georgia Public Service Commission v. United States, ante, p. 283 U. S. 765. P. 283 U. S. 779.
