Tho Dominion Co., Mr. W. H. Burr, Traffic Manager, Toronto, Qnt.: 3ir. beg to ,a receipt of your letter 1.2, in reference to the matter o increase In rates from United State points to Ldthbrldge. As yon are pi bably a'ware, we took ad vantage the sitting Of the Railway Conuiili siou out West to state our caae t that body. 'Decision'was deferred, i. order that the Board's traffic office could have an opportunity to enqulr. Into tho matter. In your letter of July ]2, you sUt that you have looked'into the matte very carefully, and find that no-in crease in'rates have been mailo by 6h Dominion Express'Company, We 'dfa agree most emphatically with you up on this point. If the only effect o the transfer1 of the I. wag to Increase the rates via Coutts. -TK might not have felt.so bad about it but such Is not the case. Our conte'ii tion is that the Dominion Impress Company took advantage5 of'the'cut ting out of the A. R. I. competitive route to increase their own merchan dise rates from American points to Lethbridge via Kingsgate, via Suinas and via Portal This was shown, we believe, very clearly in the table of rates-taken from your "tariffs" and fiteci .with 3fi Ford, your general superintendent'al and-referred b> him, we understand, to you. For instance the rates from Portland, Oreuon, to Lethbridge, via Kingsgate, were con- siderably advanced, the advance rang- ing from (i per cent, to 104 per cent; the rates from Chicago to Lethbridge, via Ponio.1, were also advanced, the advance ranging frem 24 per 71 per cent.: and'so o'n from nearly all American points. It is apparent that the Dominion Express Company's increases were a direct result of, and solely due to. .the elimination of Great Northern compe- tition, and the fact that no advances were made on express parcels, weigh- ing from one up to and including se.v en pounds, owing >to the postal' mail service Competition in these weights would-. seem to'.
