"In requesting leave to appeal io the supreme court, Mr. Chrysler said it. was the desire of the Manitoba government to challenge the judgment of the board on a question of law arising out of the agreement between the Manitoba government and the C. N. It. in respect, of freight rates. He qirL-ed the portion of the judgment dealing with th's agreement and said it was the desire of the prov'ncinl government to ascertain the correctness or otherwise of the attitude assumed by the board which had claimed that it is nor. bound by the agreement. ivir. Chrysler stated that in case Lethbridge now possesses a real general on the firing fine. John S. Stewart'has disappeared from tne rank of Lieut.-Colonel and in future he will be known as Brig.-Gen. Stewart, D.S.O. He is in chargejbf the third division C.R.A. There is no surprise here over his rapid advancement, as Gen. Stewart was always recognized as an artillery officer of the first order. He went to France in command of the 7th-Artillery Brigade, In the winter of 1915 and up until August 1916, being located at St. Eloi. In August 1916 he was transferred to the Somme and was wounded in October. When he came back from the hospital, a reorganization of the artillery took place and he was plareH mand of the fifth brigade and participated in the great v.t.o,^ uf Vimy Ridge. He was acting as Brigadier-General of the 5th division .at Passchaendaele last fall and he has now been appointed to the permanent rank of brigadier-general of the third division. Lethbridge is naturally proud of its distinguished soldier. He is simply fulfilling the expectations of those who knew his military ability.
