A dealer pointed out [his morning that thtre would probably be a cutting down of tho supply from the United States to Canada for the next three months, aud this, ivith the Increased freight and the limitation of th.e profits of the nicrUant to fifty centa a lou would be bound'to raise the price.

Sir Henry Drayton, chief railway comm IBS loner is at present in Halifax, it was impos- sible to obtain from him any commeat on the notion of President Wilson In taking over the United Stales rail- roads. Commissioner McLean, wh asked as to the possible effect ot the president's action on 13EU Canadian sit- uation, said that he vras as yet hardlf In a position to make any comment, IIo had, be stated, seen only the brief' newspaper report which g: practically'Bo details as to the work- Ing .tho plan in the United Stales. Unlit' a more detailed state' merit was received, he preferred not to malic any comment. Another official of the railway com- mission expressed the .opinion that government control of raiVwaya In llic United States very wise move. lie drcvf attention to tho fact that the situation there Is different from that in Canada. In the United .States the railways are subject to the lawa of the various slates through which they operate prohibiting pooling of railway traffic antl earnings. A complete uni- fication of all the railway systems In operation is therefore an Impossibility while the roads are controlled by priv- ate enterprise. The fedural govern ment, however, In taking over the roads miist r.lso cope with the-labor situation 'vi.nd other problems which private enterprises lias difficulty in linndling. Whether it would be nece'i stiry for Canada to take similar action was problematical The Dominion was not faced with the same statutory dlff icullles as the United States, but the problem of supplying sufficient labor for operating the Canadian roads might necessitate government action Another of tidal! prominently con necled with the administration of rail ways to the view tba U would not be necessary to tatce like. action in Canada and that the taking over of the American rallTravs by the government would. have very Uttli effect on the situation bere.
