fuses Reparation to Ottawa
Washington, J >. C —It was held by
the interstate commerce commission
as a principle that "where there are
two routes between the same points
over which different rates apply, a
shipper who elects to ship his traffic
over the route carrying the higher rate
is not entitled to an award of damages
merely because a lower rate was in
torce via the other rout."
This was laid down in the case of A.
Willis & Co.. of Ottawa, Kansas,
against the Atchison Topeka A; Santa
Pe railway and others, the commis-
sion declining to grant reparation on
