Created in 1R81 Creation of the commission by Congress In 1867 followed n period of railroad history marked by stock jobbery, political craft, land crabs, rate discriminations nnd inequalities, rebates and pooling. The railroads of thai day held the prosperity of cit'es. stales nnd communities in their hands. Favored shippers were enriched tit the expense of rivals who ivre sometimes ruined. "All the traffic will bear" was likely to be the rulo of rates. Rate discriminations caused the most resentment and led to the Granger movement and passage of rezulatorv laws in states of the West nnd Northwest. But the supreme court ruled that the states could not, bv regulations, taxes or lolls directed nt the carriers, interfere with interstate commerce. After various attempts at national J legislation the I. C. C. wns created not to regulate Interstate commerce bnt to regulate railroads.
