This rate to Denver is not a joint through rate, but is made up of the local rate from New England to St. Louis plus the rate from St. Louis to Denver, or in some cases from St. Louis to Kansas City and from Kansas City to Denver. The Commission might perhaps order a reduction of these several locals to such an extent as to bring the entire rate within the figure named by us; but the Commission would be passing upon a through rate from New England to Denver, and no such rate is now in existence. The proper method to follow in cases like this, where no joint rate exists, is to cite before the Commission the proper defendants and pray for the establishment of a through route and joint rate. Upon a petition of that sort the Commission has power to do justice both to Denver and etween the different carriers participating in the transportation. Merchants' Traffic Asso. v. N. Y., N. H. & H. R. R. Co. et al. 225.

On complaint of failure of defendants to establish a through route and joint rate on lumber, lath, and shingles from Ashland, Tex., to Nash, Okla., it appeared that there formerly existed joint rates over two established routes between these points, but that they have been recently canceled; Held, That there is at the present time no satisfactory through route or joint rate for the shipment of such commodities between said points, and that a joint through rate of 281 cents per 100 pounds should be established over a through route specified herein. Gentry v. A., T. & S. F. Ry. Co. et al. 171.
Upon complaint showing failure of defendants to establish through routes and joint rates for transportation of cotton seed, in carloads, from certain points on Midland Valley Railroad in Oklahoma to Little Rock, Ark.; Held, That failure of defendants to establish such routes and rates unduly discriminates against complainant in favor of manufacturers at Fort Smith, Ark., and Muskogee, Ind. T. Merchants' Freight Bureau of Little Rock, Ark., V. Midland Valley R. R. Co. et al. 243.
While the Commission's power to establish a through route and joint rate is limited to particular cases where a reasonable or satisfactory through route does not already exist, yet such power is not confined to cases where enforcement of other provisions of the regulating statute is sought. Cardiff Coal Co. 1. C., M. & St. P. Ry. Co, et al. 460.
Complainant asks for the establishment of through routes and joint rates over the St. Paul in connection both with the Wabash Railroad and the Chicago,' Indiana & Southern. If reasonable and satisfactory through routes existed to the points in question over one of those connecting lines, it would not be competent for the complainant to ask for the establishment of through routes to the same points over the other connecting line. Nor does the Commission regard it as competent, unless there are special circumstances justifying it, for a shipper, in the absence of any reasonable or satisfactory through routes, to ask for the establishment of such routes over two connecting lines.
