“The committee are instructed, if, in their opinion, Congress has

the power under the Constitution to provide by law for the regulation and control of railroads, extending from State to State, to report a bill which will secure: First. The safety of passengers. Second. Uniform and equitable rates of fare. Third. Uniform and equitable charges for freight or transportation. Fourth. Proper connections with each other as to transportation of passengers and freight.” The minority report, pp. 8–20, “concludes that the measures referred

to and proposed can not be constitutionally enacted by Congress and ought not to be entertained; and that, if the power existed, its exercise would be inexpedient.”
