NOTE H.--Freight Rate by Passenger Train.—The rate of freight by regular passenger train shall not exceed the rate allowed by ordinary freight trains for first-class freight with 50 per cent, added thereto, and no railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express or other company, decline or refuse to transport any article proper for transportation on the train for which it is offered.

NOTE 1.-Unless otherwise specified, the minimum carload weight for all shipments shall be 20,000 pounds. Such minimum will apply regardless of the length of the car used.

NOTE J.-Weighing Cotton Seed Oil.—Where track scales are accessible, and whenever practicable, all railroad companies operating in South Carolina are required to weigh all empty tank cars for shipments of oil on track scales at the station of the initial line, or at the oil mill where such cars are to be loaded ; and to weigh these cars on same scales when loaded, and issue bills of lading therefor with actual weights of the contents of each car inserted thereon.

And if it be necessary in complying with such routing instructions for the shipment to pass over the lines of two or more companies, it shall be the duty of the initial company to so deliver to its connection, and each succeeding company shall do likewise, as will cause compliance with routing instructions, and the lowest rate applicable via such specified route shall be applied.

Where shipments are tendered without routing instructions, the company receiving same in the first instance shall forward said shipments with due regard to the interests of the shippers and by that reasonable and practicable route over which the lowest charge for transportation applies, and any damage resulting to a shipper from a disregard of this obligation by any company shall be repaired by the company responsible for the misrouting making reparation to shipper to the extent of the difference between the necessary expense incurred in making delivery of shipment over the route by which same improperly moved and the necessary expense wbich would have been incurred had shipment been properly routed : Provided, That any reparation made upon this account sball in nu wise affect the right of shipper to any claim for actual damages sustained in excess of the difference in expense incurred in making delivery as berein provided.

other articles returned for repairs. Provided, however, that the above rule shall not operate to reduce the minimum charge on single shipments. Agricultural implements and Machinery, C. L or L. C. L., returned to manufacturers, must be prepaid, or waybill must be accompanied by an order from manufacturers for such return.

NOTE Q.-Switching and Transfer Charges.-It shall be the duty of all railroad corporations, whose tracks shall be so connected, to transfer to any other railroad track any car or cars, upon demand of the consignee or owner of the freight in said car or cars, at such transfer charges as may be fixed by the Railroad Commission; empty cars to be returned free.
