He says the rates, passenger and freight, are too low and indicates that if the rates charged on the gov- ernment railways in Australia were in force, it would yield a surplus. Then, Mr. Graham, by- all means put up the rates. The people of Canada will, back you up. Operate the taken by the retiring deputy.
