This Aisdoiatton, wblch^ was recently formed at the request of the Caimdlap Qovernment, is really a joint committee of all the Canadian ran ways, and la headed by the Presidents of th^ various roads. This body has undertaken to get at least a dollar's worth of..service out of every dollar's worth ot railway equipment in Canada. Unnecessary competition, the duplication of service, and the .wasteful use of engines and cars in other ways, are all to be done away with under this Association. ' .One of the worst forms of waste in tills country Is the underloading ot freight cars, Uecorda show that, only ftjjout forty-oiA- iKjr cent of the marked carrying capacity of the average freight car is made ua of by the shipping public. Tlie' waste is even more �erious wheni It is understood that the actual capacity of a car Is at least ten per cent higher'than ifs marked capacity. The seriousness of such waste is easily anprtelated when,one knows that Canada has for eiomo time been unable to get aU-tbe freight cars needed to carry evenmunltlons. One huge order for oats for the troops In Prance was held uR for many, weeks owing to the lack'of oars. - New, cars not only cost more than formerly- the price is practically. throe, tlmo^ the pre-war price, but the demand for >iow oars Is greater, than the supply, and Great Britain, Fjranoe, and, Rua-Bla have been placing ordorB'in'.addlr, tlon to the usual panaaiaa'ar''' American orders.' .' � Now, however, in place ipf trying to buy enough now cars, the;, railways have united, amoipg oth^f, things to induce shippers to load their cars at least to ttio marked'cajlaclty; , Of course shippers don't alwaydrllKetb I do this.
