Chicago, M. & St.P. Ry. Co. v. Public Utilities Comm'n, 242 U.S. 333 (1917)

Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company

v. State Public Utilities Commission

No. 148

Argued December 5, 1917

Decided January 8, 1917

242 U.S. 333


An order of a state commission fixing a rate for transportation in purely intrastate commerce will not be disturbed upon the grounds that it produces discrimination against interstate commerce, interfere with administrative provisions of the Interstate Commerce Act, and intrudes upon the jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce Commission where the relations of the rate fixed to interstate commerce have not been determined by the Interstate Commerce Commission and are not established by the evidence, and where the certainty that it will operate to the injury of those engaged in such commerce is not made to appear.

268 Ill. 49 affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
