Excerpt from book: Mr DEAR SENATOR : I have received the letter dated March 12 from yourself and other Senators and Members of the House of Representatives, inquiring as to the policy of the Railroad Administration with reference to inland waterways and coastwise commerce. Replying to the questions seriatim :
1. You ask as to the policy of the Railroad Administration in the utilization of interior waterways for water transportation and as to the promotion of interchange of traffic between the rail lines and the water lines, including the matters of divisions of through rates and the issuance of through bills of lading: It is my conviction that water transportation lines, at least such as are financially and physically equipped to discharge the duties of common carriers and to effect transfers of traffic on an economically sound basis, should be coordinated and correlated with the whole transportation system of the country. This necessarily implies that there should be no obstructions to an interchange of traffic between rail and water on terms substantially equal to those between rail carriers, and that through billing and through bills of lading should be adopted under such conditions between the rail carriers and responsible water carriers; but this, of course, would require that on such traffic the water carriers would be subject to the act to regulate commerce. I have reference, of course, to waterways with permanent channels.
