New Railway Organization In Canada Will EVEN the humble freight ear trudging doggedly along on . endless errands; carrying all manner of strange burdens at the behest of engines that never' rest-ia; now made to "do his bit," his, extra "bit," in helping to win tliej war. Along with all railroad rolling, stock and other equipment the Canadian freight car Is now the subject cf special attention by the Canadian Railway Association for National Defence. This Association, which was recently formed at the request of the Canadian Government, is really a joint committed of all the Canadian railways, and is headed by the Presidents of the various roads. This body has undertaken to get at least a dollar's worth of service out of every dollar's worth of railway equipment in Canada. Unnecessary competition, the duplication of service, ami ihe wasteful use of engines and Sure That All Equipment Does A Maximum Service ..i .... ____ ,_____ ,,, >,D!'ment of 3.000 ridiiiE ploughs 32 cars mmsm cars in other ways, are all to be done \ away with under this Association. One of the worst forms of waste in this country is the underloading of freight cars. Records show that only Ml'oiit forty-tiij: iier cent of the marked carrying capacity of toe average freight ear is made use of by the shipping public. The waste is eveu more serious when it is understood that the actual capacity of a car is at least ten per cent, higher than its marked capacity. The seriousness of such waste is easily appreciated when ouo knows that Canada has for s.ome time been unable to get all the freight cars needed to carry even munitions. One, huge order lor oats for the troops in France was hold up for many weeks owing to tho lack of cars. New cars not only cost more than formerly- the price is practically throe times the pre-war price, but the demand for hew cars is greater tliau the supply, and Great Britain, France, and Russia have been placing orders in addition to the usual Canadian' and American orders. Now, however, in place of trying to buy enough new cars, the railways havo united, among other things to induce shippers to load their cars at least to tiio marked capacity. Of course shippers don't always like to do this. It is convenient sometimes to ship just one order in a car, or to pack a car only to a certain point owing to the additional cost of labor for packing more efficiently. Such practices are being made the subject of a vigorous educational campaign. The freight car must carry a full load hereafter Just to show how space can he saved it has been demonstrated by some of the implement makers that fitting a cheap "deck" into a box car instead of loading on the floor only a shipment of 800 wagons can be accommodated in twelve less cars than if packed in the old way. On a ship- ment of 3,000 riding ploughs 32 cars can be saved, and on a shipment of 1,200 binders. 2 cars. Such savings are to be effected In almost every class of shipment. The Canadian Railway'Association for National Defence intends to make sure of this new economy among other things. - Automobile Oar, Canadian Pacific Railway cars enlisted to do their bit in the railway (j-nJwwtwpi's A Standard Box <3ar.
