It is further ordered, That the said Classification of Operating Expenses, with the text pertaining thereto, be, and is hereby, prescribed for the use of express com- [5 panies, subject to the provisions of the act to regulate commerce, as amended June 29, 1906, in the keeping and recording of their operating expense accounts; that each and every such carrier and each and every receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier be required to keep all operating expense accounts in conformity therewith; and that a copy of said First Issue be sent to each and every such carrier and to each and every receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier.
It is further ordered, That the rules contained in said First Issue of the Classification of Operating Expenses are, and by virtue of this order do become, the lawful rules according to which the said operating expenses are defined; and that each and every person directly in charge of the accounts of any such carrier or of any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier is hereby required to see to, and under the law is responsible for, the correct application of the said rules in the keeping and recording of the operating expense accounts of any such carrier; and that it shall be unlawful for any such carrier, or for any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier, or for any person directly in charge of the accounts of any such carrier, or of any receiver or operating trustee of any such carrier to keep any account or record or memorandum of any operating expense item except in the manner and form in said First Issue set forth and hereby prescribed, and except as hereinafter authorized.
