A. Oorrie, -manager of ;the. Canada! "West Wholesale Co., gave tie whole-! sale crices in groceries and pertaining at the first of July and on; the 22nd of November. A feature of; his .evidence was the fact brought out that Canadian packed canned toma- toes were much higher than the same article brought from the American side. Mr. Corrie stated that his firm were losing 15 cents per case on Can- adian tomatoes, 'by selling them at the same price as they sold the Ameri- ican product. He could not give freight rates on B, C. sugar, as that article was bought laid flown in Fernie. T. Prentis, manager of the A. Me- I Donald Wholesale company, was on j the stand after Mr. Corrie, and his evidence was interesting from the fact that he stated that they bound to sell sugar at prices made-by the B. C. Refinery. If his firm sho.ald sell at less than the price established by the refinery, they were subject'to a 5 per cent, charge. ac- complished by the rebate method, the refinery rebating five per cent in case prices were kept at figures set -by them, and refusing it if not. As the five per cent, was the whole margin left to the wholesalers, it followed i that they wocM have to quit handliig the sugar. His firm had to sign agree- ments to that effect and if not follow- ed they were to be being refused sugar. This condition extended to other factories, the Imperial .Tobacco com- pany and the BoTden ililk people re- bating to the extenji and 11 per cent, respectively, provided prices were-kept to a certain figure, the wholesalers losing thi" reb'at.8 and be- ing struck off the, list if these condi- tions were not followed.
