Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VI. LethbriCtfiie, Albevtn, Monday, August 11,1913 PKICE-FIVE CE^TS Number 204 ED CARTAGE SOEM SHED By THE RAIL Said That New Order is Merely'Move to Get Permanent t Ruling WHAT IT MEANS Would Hit Retail Merchant and Change Whole System of Handling Freight According to a joint statement issued by the Canadian Pacific, the Canadian. Northern, the Grand Trunk Pacific, the O-raat Northorn and the Midland railway o� Manitoba, the practise of advancing cartage charges on outgoing shipments, and the collection oi same from the consignee at destination, will be discontinued a6-ter October 1st. The issuing o� this statement is said to be due tg acme agitation on the part of the Prince Albert retail merchants' association, Who claimed that the cartage companies there were endeavoring to increase the minimum cartage charge. The practiao ol advancing cartage 4s of direct benefit to everyone concerned, and local C.P.R. freight officials claim that the discontinuance of it will never come into effect, but ,!that the statements are simply sent out in order to bring the matter before the railway commission, so that they might make the practise legal, which, up to the present time it has not been. That is, there has been no regulation' made regarding it, cither �way, so it h�s not been illegal.  By this method of handling, one Cartage company gets all the business by contract. Cbnsequently he c�n aflord' to haul cheaper. The railway '�.company benefits by the systematizing.-of ^tihe htadling knd. the monthly payrneut of all cartage .chaiges.^l'^^fc^tjie. wholesaler or ship-'^ei dpeiU:,n(x^:i0^y: any, cartage charges; tW retail merchant,in tlie sijiall '.town pays- the, charge to the railway" company, which pays the cartage company. , If the practise is discontinued, the vejjolesaler will have to pay the cbargesv and the retail consignee Will suffer, as.he will lose the cheap cartagei. rate formerly enjoyed, and will eventually pay for all hauling expense encumbered by the wholesaler, in the increased cost of hiff goods. At thp present time the Western fTransfer company do all of the hauling, for the C.P.R. at a rate of three cents per one hundred pounds, with a minimum rate of fifteen cents. It the change .takes eSeot, other cartage companies will enter the field and higher rates ^ will result. The competition will not be keen' enough here, !to allow the rate to be decreased, whereas, no one company will get enough Inisiness to warrant holding lto the .present rate. There is no doubt but what the railway conimission will ratify the practise, so that present privileges may be enjoyed by the wholesaler, the retailor in the outside points, and the railway compuiieB.
