Otta-wa, April 23. - Judgment of immense importance to Western Canada was given by the railway coni-mission today to the eftect that the expres, rates in the west are to be cut twenty per cent. The new rates are to come into force on or before July 15 of this year. � The eastern rates are not touched for the present but the board is satisfied that the west has been carrying more than its fair shore pE the express rates. The decision is -the first important one prepared by the  new* chief commissiDiier-iH. L. Dra,y~ Iton, ahd it was .'signed alsb by all his ' fellow commissioners, there not being a dissenting vote. In 1910, the late Judge Mabce made a rearrangement of the express rates but there have been m^ny complaints since and last autumn the new commissioner undertook a further inquiry into the v/hole question of eastern and western rates. The present decision is the result. -In my view," said the chairman in his decision, "the express rates charged by the defendant companies in the prairie provinces and in British Columbia are unroason.ible. Reductions which have been madei and there are many, as shown by the companies' tarifts, ate reductions which but little alTect the manner in which the bulk of the trallio is moving, or are perhaps dompensatod by additions which have been made !to the rates, presumably in the levelling'process, in establishing a mileage basis of standard rates as provided by the judgment. I am of the opinion that an approximately average reduction of twenty per cent should" be made by the companies in the standard maximum tariff for traffic classified as merchandise to apply only to the prairie provinces and to British Columbia." The decision also provides that there is to be a similar reduction in special rates. A particular point of the board's order is the provision for the basis of standard maximum Kiileage tarills. Under the Mj^bee decision the standard maximum was placed at $5 per hundred pounds lor the prairie section, and $6 for the mountain section. This is raduccd to $4 for the prairie and $4..75i for the mountain section. It is believed that the' B. C. reductions will be particularly valuable to the fruit industry of the coast province, as it win give them far lower express rates to the prairies. Possible Injury � ; 1, , An interestmg feature is the statement that tho inauguration of the parcel post system'in the Donalpion will considerably cut down' the ^'ex;-press companies' business-.: � This rea^ son is given for not making a grcat^ er decrease than twenty'. per centi � and for,not making any changes at all in tho eastern rates, The'-chairman says in this regard : > "It is impossible at the present time to e-sliimate the effect of parcel post in Canada. The difference of conditions in Canada may produce either greater or less losses to the business of the express companies.. References made to them merely .show the impossibility of now making any close analysis for future rates with tho new. factor, the result ot which is unknown. "The figures of the American companies, however, seem to justify the express companies in the fear that the adoption of the system in Canada will work a serious loss to them. . Until this unknown quantity is as-' certained, the results of the express companies' business and flgures be-: {tore mo, would not justify any furr ther reduction than that now ordor-ed."' Continuing, the chairman liakes up in, detail the claims of the oompan-- ' ies'. The cost of doing business: in I the west is greatjr and the density of the traffic less than.in the east. The chairman comments : , "Tlie actual results, of operation would seem to show that undue ef-" feet has been given to these consider-' ations and to demand readjustment. However, economic conditions presented by other aspects' ot the railway situation in view of-'water :com-&,;ii,| petition and the; like-^may control the: board's action, it is obvious th^t such considerations can apply to an express service with but little force. ' The express service is'entirely differ-ent.trom that of freight. The basts' of rates, as well as the demand pt the public stand: upon a difteirenfc . tooting. � 16.
