Special mileage tariffs on vege- ^ tables in Manitoba are shown to be reasonable.

I Lumber aud joiners' work from Bri- '� tish Columbia to the prairie destina- ' tions have been already reduced, fol- ; lowing the - Board's order ia' ,Iuly, ' 1D13. j No reduction is made in live stock ' rates which are shown to be reasonable in view o? the favpiJi^ble carload minimum weights and" volume . of traffic. Rates on fence posts, fire wood, brick, stone, gravel and sand are found to be generally lower than those applying in Ontario, but the higher scales prevailing in Alberta and Saskatchewan are reduced to the lower -Manitoba basis. .A review of the judgment sho'ws that the whole structure of western rates, starting from the standard max-iaium mileage scale class tarif:'s from Lake Superior and Pacific coast terminals, the class distributing rates, commodity tariffs, applying on grain, coal, livestock, cement, fruit, vegetables, brick, sandstone, lumber, dairy if To Tempt The Spring Appetite Try Our Choice SPRING LAMB SWEET JUICY TENDER The rich aroma will add zest to any appetite - Try some for Good Friday and Easter Hind Quarters $1.75 Front Quarters $1.25 We have a complete line of Easter Meats of the highest quality DELANYS LIMITED PHONES 452 and 1522 e carry the largest and choicest m the csty ickens and Phones 412 and 138 products, etc., have been closely inspected and definite decision given in connection with each. The Board has'considered the ciucs-tion of local passenger rates in British Columbia very carefully. It finds that local passenger business is at present being conducted at a loss. It therefore does not feel justified in directing any change until the Board is afforded opportunity ;�. seeing what improvement In passenger revenues will result from improvements in railway grades and .,oi>erating facilities which railways are at present making in that province, and if they are found remunerative only in the sense of contributing'to general prosperity. The rate on pig iron from Port Arthur and Fort William to Winnipeg is reduced from twenty cents per 100 pounds to $3.00 per gross ton, or 13.4 cents per 100 pounds. From the Souria mines reductions as made by the Board in the Alameda case are confirmed and others made. Thus, from Estevau to Brandon, the rate is reduceer ton. From Merrltt, B.C., to Yale, from $1.80 to $1.65; to Kamloope, from $2.00 Jto $1.76; to Sicamous, from $2.50 to $2.20; to Penticton, from $3.30 to" $2.00; to Nelson, from $4.10 to $3.
