Decided March 4, 1935

294 U.S. 499

4. A rate schedule initiated by a carrier must be upheld as lawful unless adequate reasons are presented for setting it aside. P. 294 U. S. 510.

5. The Commission may not prevent a carrier from reducing its rates to meet competition merely upon the ground that the reduction chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
