Winchel-1, president off the 'Frisco oC railroad capi- tal, will be needed within the next five years to provide adequate transpor- tation facilities to meet- the growing needs of the country. President Winch ell points out that the present enormous crops will dem- onstrate the inadequacy of the rail- roads of today in such a way as ought to create a sentiment in favor ot a more liberal policy toward them on the part of the public. "The transportation facilities oC the southwest are already taxed to their capacity and there is bound to be an embarrassment later says Mr. Winchell, in an interview published in the current issue of the Manufacturers Record. "The only way a railroad can make developments is by borrowing money or earning it. Present rates in connection with the greatly advanced wage scale will not permit the railroads to earn the that will -be required to provide adequate facilities and malntalnance for plant, in tho next five years, nor can the money be ob- tained by the sale of the resources or by borrowing, unless the railroad can be reasonably assured that freight rates will not be further reduced. The current increase in railroad fa- cilities is wholly inadequate. This means that there should be not only more cars and locomotives, but more tracks, sidings, terminals and every- thing pertaining to equipment and rnaintalnance." In discussing crops and buniness con- ditions in the same issue of the Manu- facturers' Record, President C. H. Markham, of the Illinois Central rail- way says: "People have been holding back for three or (four years waiting for some- thing to happen. Something has bap- pened that something being big crops, and there is no reason .why everybody should not be busy now. The presi- dential year is having lass Influence on business than ever before."

Charles MurpHy dealt with the matter of the changed grades on the National- Transcontinental; and maae specific charges against the commis- sioner in this connection. Mr. Mur- Dhy's statement was in these terms: "In 1904, the Liberal government matured a policy for the construction of the National Transcontinental Rail- way and submitted their policy to the people in- the general election of that year. The policy was approved by the people and contracts were entered into for the building of the road. To maice the road superior to all others on. the Continent it wae, among other things, provided that the going east should be only of one .per cent, or 21 feet in a the maximum grade going West should be only e-lOths of one per cent., or 31' feet in a mile. "For over seven years tvhllo tne Liberals remained dn office the road was built in accordance -with these trades, and millions dollars were spent, in pushing on the work. The sections of the road that were com- pleted during these-years are of such a hig-h standard that a leading rail- way authority has declared they havo no equal in the United States or Canada, and his further assertion is that when they are. handed over to tne contractors the government will not require to spend one cent-in better- mSeoroTosico! eervlce weathe ening. fair. 56; Medicine Hat. cloudy "46; Edmonton, 52. in Alberta ana ncwan. while In Manitoba it was fine condttlona haw set In over Alberta WinTilpeK.

Prank Cochrane dismissed the three Transcontinental Bail way Commissioners, and then had an act passed reducing the Commission to one .person. The Commission, as thus constituted, in violation of the policy approved by the people of Canada in isoi in violation of the terms of tho contract, itself, and in defiance of the purpose for which the Parliament oj Canada, session after eession voted millions ot the -people's money has on different parts the line, increased the grades not only on the work-but on finished work as well. "Let me give you some examples or the way in which the people's rail- road "has been, tampered with. In certain places where cuts have been completed, re-filling has been done in -order to increase the grade. At other points the finished roadbed has been cut down for the same .purpose, and the material so removed has been thrown on either side of the track, thus destroying the uniformity of; alignment as well as altering the ffradj 'But (perhaps the most Illurainattne case of all is that -of a -wooden trestle 800 feet long: and 20 feet high which was cut down 10 feet throughout its entire length iso that an Increased grade might be obtained. "In other, respects also the work done under the present Commission is below the required standard. Temporary trestles made of Jogs with the baric on have been turned into permanent structures by simply peel- ing the bark off the logs.
