Ln U conducted tho stales, since readiog the ar- ticle I have hid some conversation j with a railroad man in regard to transportation phase and overcharg- es, This mac has been for a number of years connected with the freight department of one of the largest sys- tems of railways in this country, and he advises xue that the road with which -he is connected hasjsent, many cars of emigrant movables into the Coituviiaa Northwest and at oiic time an entire train into Saskatchewan. He says that he has never heard one. word of complaint as to overcharge or any irregularities. He further says that rates on emigrant mov ables in carlots'are based ou pounds to St. Paul as minimum weight, and" pounds beyond that point, and shipments are al- ways prepaid ou that basis. The car is weighed on track, scales en route, Collection of the additional amount is made at the destination. This should be iully explained to the ship- per at thc.time the 'car is loaded, in order, to avoid any misunderstanding and the further fact that his re- ceipt says that the einount so paid is "to apply" and not in full of all charges. The overcharge complained of was probably an additional col- lection made on this account, and if so." 'was not in reality an overcharge at all, but regular and straight in every way: The. conclusion of your correspond- ent that the Canadian government would not stand for a fraud of any kind, from any source, is 'eminently PR 6 MI tiENf INSURANCE MAM'S THE ON TIONS true, and the mounted police Thos. Hiljiai-d, of Waterloo, Ont., president and manager of the Do- minion Lite Insurance Co., of Water- is in ciiy in.the course of a trip through the West which will occupy several weeks. He has been through the north country and came from Edmonton to Lethbrage on Mon- day. t Asked found .things in the West, Mr. Billiard said that as far as he could see the crops all over are from fair to good. It would optimistic to say they are good every- where as in many places poor farm- Lug, poor seed, and unfavorable: wea- ther conditions have been against them. On the whole, however, crops are. above the average. Hilliard says thai the people of the East are just as anxious over the western crop as the people of the West themselves. Their .interests are so bound up with the West that their interdependence is absolute. All the people from tlie capitalist to the workingman are interested, the short- er .hours and smaller orders in the east being to the partial failure of .the c.rop last year. Mr. Hilliard said that he had not had an .opportunity'of seeing enough of the south to express an opinion but he had heard splendid reports, todav to see the Mr. He, is going out crops. discover and bring to grief the most of. these guilty of graft or fraud in any shape is also true, and whether we have any better laws in the states or any better executed is a matter of doubt in my mind. That much of the emigrating- is largely due to the unrest of our citizens there is no doubt, but there ore also other reasons for the most I Regarding the city, h? says that it of such moves. One strong reason has struck him more favorably with for. emigrating to western Canada is that there they have the best cheap land that I have seen of late years in any land that produces crops every" not them as good as the best, of course, but nev- er a failure, and -the grain is ol the finest quality of any part of North America, and' in. greater yiekf per acre than either the TJakotas or Min- nesota. The -wheat grades higher than other wheat shipped to Chica- 0. I hava seen outs that yielded over 100 bushels per acre, and that weighed 47 pounds to the bushel by test. I have seen 20 bushels of splen did flax to the' acre, the first season it was broken', arid that land cost from SI 2 to per acre, and less than ten miles from a raiJro'ad sta- tion and -town, all of which affords a very good reason for some of our people emigrating. It is all very well for a man in Iowa or Illinois, who owns a farm 1. mean has it paid stay with it and thus avoid many hardships, but to one of limited means, who must pay as much rent In two or three years as this Canada land will cost him to own, I would say by mil nieens emigrate, and at the end of n few years if you do not like to inCanada, you will be fixed to live where you wish. I spent the latter part of the sum- mer and early fall of 1906 in regard to present cbiTdiuons than had any other place in the West. He noted particularly the great amount of building going on and the other signs of prosperity. The ppminion Life has for the past six years placed all its available funds in' western mortgages. The bus- iness has been most satisfactory as they have never lost a dollar of either principal or interest. Mr. Hilliard the'opinion that public opinion needs a little education on the matter of taxing money in transit, which, he consid- ers a very unwise policy for the gov- ernment of the province or of the municipalities.. The tax, on corpora- tions eventually cooies out of the consumer and generally with a good margin. Money is needed in this country and should be encouraged. There is no use bringing in people to the country and then embarrass their efforts to get By tax- ing insurance and loan companies the government and municipalities tax the losses of the people, which the companies equalize to prevent the ruin of individuals The govern- ments tax the corporation for every dollar of premium received, thereby making the policy holders pay the tax indirectly Mr. Hiuiarci is ar prominent Me- thodist and a leading political as .well as financial man in Western Ontario.

There were 21 days when the thermometer register- ed below zero in Saskatchewan and most remarkable stretches of rail- road truck' in the world will be en- countered by passengers who, within a few months, will be able to take passage for the eastern cities over the new Chicago, Milwaukee St. Paul, when he passes along the 11 -s- selshcll river, separating Fergus and Yellowstone counties.' The stretch referred to is 115 miles in length and in travelling over this section the passenger will go from Fergus in- to Yellowstone counties 59 times and return into Fergus county 58 times during the ride. He will thus have crossed the county line separating the two counties 117 times. When it is considered that the line which separates the two political divisions is nothing more nor less than the wil For become even more remarkable, each crossing of the line there is a bridge, hence 117 bridges have beer constructed in a miles. This is an distance of 115 average of more tate and passes easterly through duster County to the county line .be- tween Yellowstone and Fergus coun- says the report. "Continuing n a generally easterly direction it crosses the Musselshcll River, which s the dividing line between the coun- ty of Fergus, on the north side, Nand the county of Yellowstone on the south side of the river, 117 times, passing thereby into Fergus county 59 times and from Fergus county in- to Yellowstone 58 times. The report shows further that the roud has a total of 174.68 miles of roadway in the statet with 14.90 miles of siding. This length of rail is divided between four counties as follows: Custcr, roadway 78.20, side- track 7.47; Meagher, roadway 26.07, sidetrack, 1.28; Yellowstone, road- way 30.41, sidetrack 3.10; Fergus, roadway 40, sidetrack 3.05.
