Where competition exists, each company may make its rates. There is nothing in this Act which suggests that a railway company may not charge lower rates than the tariff. On the contrary, the probability is recognized that that will be done. A railway company may make its rate as low as it pleases. All it has to do is to file its tariff and the board will not disallow it except where it is a discriminating tariff.
